Perfect little gem for two

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 6 nights while I waited to participate in the Coeur d'Alene Ironman. Location was great, right along the run course, made it quite easy for my husband to go and have a nap during the day and then wait for and watch me during the run section of the race. Easy walk to downtown, with all the restaurants and shops. Darilyn and Paul were fantastic hosts, and incredibly helpful. The studio had everything you could want, it was very well maintained and looked after. We could not have asked for a better place to stay. Would definitely stay there again.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a lovely review. Our Ironman participants over the years have always said they loved this studio for the same thoughts you have.. We are always excited about the race all year right along with the athletes and when the big day comes we do try to help in any way possible..

Best kept secret in Coeur d' Alene!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I are very picky where we stay. We want the best deal for the best price. Tubbs Hill Studio was just that. Location is everything. The lake is a block away with a very cool trail into town that winds around the mountain; with lake in view the whole time. The studio is quiet and cozy and situated in the nicest, safest neighborhood in Coeur d' Alene. It's a perfect place for two! The owners are really awesome people.

Perfect get-away

  • 5 of 5

I am a sucker for clean/ upscale/inviting /well maintained/ CHARMING studio stays. The space is lovely and all the appointments; bath towels,bed linens, kitchen wares and coffee maker, made me realize how much upgrading I need to do at my own house! I felt as though I was staying at a resort. The gardens surrounding the home of Darilyn and Paul were ablaze with color and fragrance. Fun to sit outside in the am and have coffee surrounded by all that beauty. Easy walk to the beach and wonderfully quiet and lovely neighborhood. Darilyn is a good communicator, and easy to work with. All paper work and $$'s easily managed. I hope to return---my stay there was delightful. Thanks so much Darilyn and Paul!

Could not get much better!!

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, well maintained studio! Kitchen comes stocked with every tool one would need to cook, even some spices. All you need is the food. A great way to stay in Coeur d'Alene. Walking, bike riding...everything within easy reach. So nice to come "home" to a quiet well appointed place. Definitely would recommend anyone going Coeur d'Alene to stay here.

Much nicer than a hotel!

  • 5 of 5

This studio apartment is in a great location in a very nice neighborhood. The property is 1 block from a public beach, less than a mile walk to the downtown area, and a few blocks from the Tubbs Hill Trailhead. The rental had everything we needed for our stay and was very clean and cozy. The owners were very easy to work with. We hope to come back and stay again!
