Enjoy hotel type service at fraction of the cost. My place is literally 7-10 min. from BOI, 12-15 min. from downtown Boise and 20 minutes from everywhere else. Whether you've got a business meeting, are transitioning to the area, have a BSU student you're visiting or just passing through. You'll find my home is incredibly clean, comfortable and perfectly located to everything!

I look forward to hosting you!!

The space
If you've read my reviews you might be able to tell there's just something special about Simple w/ a Twist. I think its because I really like people and providing the best customer service because everyone deserves it. My comfortable 1970s split level home is located on the upper bench area of south Boise just up the road from Hillcrest Golf Course and VERY close to the Boise airport.

The full kitchenette offers access to the backyard incase you’re traveling with your furry baby.

The common living room offers a 41" flat-screen with DVD's games and movies provided for your viewing pleasure. Stream all the video you like with the provided Chromecast or indulge in the few local channels we provide free of charge via our fancy antenna;)

One of the unique things about staying at my home is the privacy it provides even though the space is shared use. This European inspired communal atmosphere is really fun, never awkward or weird and is one of the things that makes my home so special! Please see my reviews for how awesome its been!!

Your space is provided with light cleaning service within the common areas to include trash service, vacuuming and bathroom tidy up. Clean towels, bathroom amenities, full laundry access with the necessary soaps and softeners plus complementary tea and coffee along with a few tasty snacks are just a few things that make staying with us great!

I look forward to hosting you!!

This bedroom offer a queen bed. Please check out my other listing, "Simple w/ a Twist (Q2)" to book both bedrooms (if available).

Guest access
You will be given check-in instruction the day of your arrival to allow for access to the property at your leisure. I will try my best to greet you when you arrive to acclimate you to the space and introduce you to my doggies (who always remain upstairs). My listing accommodates late night check-ins too!

My home is well marked out by the street to help you locate the home when you arrive. You will access the home from the front door, then you proceed downstairs to the shared living area, and your private room.

Other things to note
I do have a 5 lbs chihuahua mix named Shilo and a cat named Tucker. Shilo is a rescue from the California fires and is afraid of people when she thinks they are coming at her. She is very sweet if I am present to introduce you. In the event she is home when I am not, she may bark at you from upstairs. She will stop when you have gone downstairs. It's ok if you say "hi Shilo" as you go downstairs but please don't attempt to pet her unless I am there to introduce you. She's just a little damaged but tiny so you don't need to be scared.

Boise, Idaho, United States

I live in a great neighborhood located on the upper bench right near Hillcrest Golf Course. 12-15 minutes from downtown, 7-8 to the freeway, and very close to Meridian. Our neighborhood is very safe and friendly and mostly quiet. Again I am less than 8 minutes from the airport which makes this the perfect spot for airline personnel or people flying in to enjoy what Boise has to offer, however, we do have some airport noise.

My name is Emmily with 2 m's :) I live on the Boise (Boy-C) Bench and I share my classic 1970’s split level home with 3.5 very geriatric dogs, a cat named Tucker and our Airbnb guests! I am a local entrepreneur who loves letting out a portion of my home to the Airbnb community and providing the best possible stay! 2017 has proven to be a year of surprises and it continues to bless me in the most abundant ways. I have met SO many incredible people in the last 8 months since starting to host. I can honestly say, Airbnb has changed my life from all the people I've met through this platform. I have the great fortune of owning my own business helping people manage their properties and their projects and for fun I love hanging out with my dogs and enjoying everything Boise has to offer! You can be guaranteed staying with me is like staying with family. I make every effort to ensure you have the most pleasant stay possible while maintaining your privacy and space. I’m available when needed but relatively invisible if you don't. Your space is picked up and lightly cleaned every day to include light cleaning and dirty dishes! I genuinely care about you and your stay! Please don't hesitate to communicate your needs. I will do our very best to make your stay a pleasant one. :) Kindest Regards, ~Emmily and Crew~

During your stay
I am always available to make your stay as convenient and comfortable as possible. I do plan on being social just to say hi and get you acquainted with the space! Additionally depending on when you arrive, and what my schedule looks like, I may be able to pick you up from the airport. I live so close it doesn't make any sense to pay for a taxi if I'm available.
