About Bobby & Jenifer
We love hosting and exceeding our guests expectations. Both of us work downtown and we love living in Boise. We bicycle the greenbelt frequently, enjoy various art attractions in the city (our Shakespeare Festival lasts about 5 months and the productions are first class) and we enjoy traveling ourselves.
Bobby & Jenifer purchased this House in 2015
Why Bobby & Jenifer chose Depot Bench
Boise's Gem was built in 1958 in the north end of town and moved to it's current location in the summer of 2015. All plumbing, wiring, and heating/cooling systems are brand new as are all windows, doors and appliances. Enjoy hard wood floors throughout the living room, bedrooms and hall. The couch features reclining seats for binge watching the included Netflix and/or cable entertainment package. The master bedroom has blackout shades and all shades are double-celled cellular construction which better insulates the home. The master bedroom features a luxurious queen Serta Perfect Sleeper. The second bedroom has another queen size bed that is also super comfortable.
What makes this House unique
We are close to everything but in a very quiet neighborhood. Only people who live on our street drive past the home - you're in the city but in a residential neighborhood. The kitchen is thoughtfully stocked. You'll find butter, oils, spices, an assortment of beverages, cereals and pancake mixes, sharp knives and new cookware. We even have brand new dishes and silverware so every piece matches. Also included in the kitchen are pastas, rices, coffee, tea, etc. as well as an ice maker, dishwasher, garbage disposal and microwave. The bathroom is also stocked very well. You really only need your toothbrush.

This was the best vrbo experience. The house was everything they said it was and more. Super quiet neighborhood. Wish I could move in!!!
We loved everything about Bobby and Jennifer's home they made available to us. The location was great, the house was perfect and they provided all kinds of extras, especially in the kitchen so that we could prepare food if we wanted to. The house was immaculate and we loved it.
This house is conveniently located in Boise, and it’s within walking distance to downtown, the Greenbelt, and Boise State University. It’s very quiet, has its own huge private driveway, and it’s just the right size. Boise’s Gem was the perfect “home base” for us during our 10 days in Boise.
Bobby and Jenifer are great hosts. They communicated with us very effectively from the time we booked the reservation, throughout our stay, and after we left at the end of our stay. They worked hard to accommodate an early check-in for us after a previous renter had left. That helped us out a lot, and we really appreciated it.
The house itself was immaculate – very, very clean and nicely decorated. It was fully stocked with everything we might need during our stay plus some pleasant surprises waiting for us in the refrigerator. You can definitely tell that a lot of thought goes into trying to make guests feel welcome and comfortable.
I can’t say enough about Boise’s Gem, and I definitely recommend it.
This home was exceptionally clean, well stocked with many amenities we were not expecting and presented the perfect get away for a sisters trip. The owners went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed and enjoyed our stay. Excellent option!
Nice place, felt right at home the first day. This place is stocked with every possible need during your stay. And clean!
Boise hospitality at its finest
I have stayed at a lot of places but this place was by far the most accommodating. It was a great location, very clear instructions for everything and so well stocked. If your travels take you to Boise do not hesitate to stay here. The attention to detail with snacks, beverages and extras of all kinds were second to none.
Boise's Gem is located 1/2 mile SW of BSU and Morrison Center, and about another mile to downtown. Several restaurants are within walking distance of the home.
Just west of BSU is Ann Morrison Park and on the northwest side of campus is Julia Davis Park. If you've seen photo's or our historic train station (where most photos of downtown Boise are taken from), we are 2 blocks south of the there.
