About this listing
Our guests have best described the Sky Suite for us: serene, perfect, private, awesome, accommodating, amazing and the “ideal spot”. Come see for yourself, we would love to have you!
Welcome to Boise!
When you book the Sky Suite you will have private access to a cheery upstairs bedroom which includes a beautiful view of the foothills, queen size bed, day trundle bed, walk-in closet, and your own personal hot springs - our geothermal tub and shower! Other amenities provided are a coffee maker, sound system, mini fridge and microwave. Breakfast foods generally include yogurt, granola, bread and fruit. Wifi and parking are provided, and a shared washer and dryer accessible down the stairs. Outside in the yard enjoy our grill, garden and backyard chickens!
We are located less than two miles from downtown Boise where you can tour the Capital, stroll the farmer’s market, attend a BSU football game, shop until you drop, and party all night. It is also a ten minute commute via public transportation which stops one minute away from our doorstep. We are a five minute walk to the greenbelt which leads straight downtown.
The Sky Suite is just off of the Historical Warm Springs street where you will have the pleasure of viewing fancy geothermal heated mansions- including our neighbor’s castle! Across Warm Springs from us is the M&W market and Trolley House to meet all your appetite’s needs. Within a ten minute walk you can hike the foothills, play tennis at the Quarry view park, tour the Old Penitentiary, swim at the Natatorium, golf at the Warms Springs Golf Club and meditate at the Botanical Gardens.
We look forward to meeting you. We will feel most comfortable booking with folks who have developed profiles. Children over one year of age are considered additional guests. We do provide a baby gate and pack-and-play. Also, returning guests will be offered 10% off all future bookings.
Jeff and Allicia
Guests have private access to their room and bathroom and shared access to the downstairs laundry. For long term guests we can also explore sharing our kitchen. We also welcome guests to enjoy the covered porch, yard, garden and chickens.
Interaction with Guests
We interact with our guests in varying ways depending on the purpose of their stay. We often bring guests into our home and host a meal together - especially if they clearly say that they are looking to connect with a local or re-locate to Boise. We have become quite close to some previous guests who have moved to Boise. Other times we give our guests complete privacy and simply check in periodically to see if they need anything. Rarely we will be out of town when guests book, which has worked out great every time for both them and us.
Other Things to Note
We have some wonderful family friends of ours staying with us for a temporary time. Their names are Guy and Joanna with their four-year old son, Nico. They stay in a very separate, part of the house from the sky suite. There is no reason that their presence should affect your stay, and if you do bump into them, consider yourself lucky because they are delightful! You can find a picture of them if you click through our profile collection.
Shoes off at the door please. Sorry, no smoking, drugs, or heavy drinking. No pets in the house, but we do have a fenced yard and heated cellar (with dog door) and garage for them to reside.
I made this reservation for my mom, and here is what she says about the beautiful Sky Suite:
"Dear Allishia and Jeff,
What wonderful accommodations you have. It was the perfect place to stay while caring for my grandson while my daughter was out of town. There is such a peaceful calm that surrounds your place and I know it has so much to do with the kindness that you and your family offer to guests. Your compassion, care, and warming smiles are most welcoming. You had some wonderful snacks awaiting, variety of teas, books to read and of course that soaker tub which kept calling my name! I kept the windows open in the early morning so I could hear the faint cock from the hens outside, which added to the ambiance of a country setting. The view is fabulous from the dining table and I enjoyed taking in the beauty of the mountains while sipping my cup of tea. Subsequent visits are definitely in my planning book. Thank you both for your incredible hospitality and kindness. I am most grateful. Dotty Salisbury"
I've stayed at a lot of AirBNBs over the years all around the world, with lots of great hosts -- but Allicia is easily one of the best hosts I've yet had, and staying in her place in Boise was one of my favourite AirBNB experiences. Not only is the Sky Suite a comfortable and welcoming abode (the geothermal bath is superb!), but she kept it incredibly well stocked, is highly responsive, and was full of useful information to help us during our stay. Allicia, thanks for making our trip to Boise really special!
We can't say enough about staying at the East End Sky Suite. The family is so welcoming and it feels like coming "home" when we visit. Thank you!!!
Our family of 3 (2 adults, 1 teenager) thoroughly enjoyed our overnight stay at the Keefe's. The room is attractive, clean and chocked full of amenities to inform your stay in the area and accommodate any item you might have left behind. The space was roomy enough for 3 to relax and we slept well on the 2 comfortable beds. We especially appreciated the thoughtful snacks and breakfast items. Yum! Highly recommended!
As always, my stay at the East End Sky Suite did not disappoint! Allicia and Jeff are such wonderful hosts, and the Sky Suite's beds are super comfy, the rooms are clean and bright, and the tub is a dream...even in the high heat that Boise was experiencing during our stay. The a/c was working super-hard, and combined with the ceiling fan, we were comfortable in spite of temps high in the 100's. I always look forward to staying here whenever I'm in Boise. It just feels like home away from home!
What can I say other than that I echo all of what others have said. This is a great place to stay if you are visiting Boise. Allicia and Jeff are super helpful, friendly, and accommodating. They even put up with my dog who thinks that he owns the garage and can bark at the true owner.
As for the place. Access through the side yard via the garage makes it easy and private. You walk upstairs to a large bright room with a bed, trundle bed, table, and recliner. Also included is a little fridge, microwave, coffee maker, full utensils and a stocked pantry area. They were kind enough to provide coffee, hard boiled eggs (from their chickens!), granola, tea, bread, and more. Way better than a continental breakfast. Pro tip: take advantage of the geothermal tub and soak in some bubbles!
The area is great. 1.3 miles from downtown. 1.3 blocks from the foothill trails or river greenbelt bike path.
Our third stay at Sky Suite was superb!! JP was thrilled to find a new addition to the suite - a comfy recliner !! He also enjoyed a couple glasses of wine after a 14 hour drive!!! The hot springs tub was my
relaxer!! We also enjoy meeting the children each year!! Love this place!!
