DISCOUNT FOR STUDENTS!
I don't even know where to begin! I was in a bind, and they saved me. The whole family is just great. They are very respectful of space, but if you like to converse, like I do, they are happy to chat it up. I loved hanging out with the girls, and I have never been a huge kid lover, but they were awesome! To me, Candace is a kindred soul. She is kind, understanding and completely down to earth. I feel so fortunate that our paths crossed! You WILL see me this summer! Namaste my friend
Candice & Jaimason were absolutely wonderful hosts! I accidentally scheduled my stay for a week later than I meant to do, but they were flexible and accommodating and made sure that I was taken care of when traveling through Idaho. Had great conversations and got to spend time chatting the next morning over a nice cup of coffee! Awesome people and I recommend staying with them.
Amazing amenities in Ammon! We truly enjoyed our stay in Candice's home. She was very flexible and accommodating to our check in needs, as we were in town for a wedding. Spaces were clean, comfortable, and brightly lit with natural lighting - the house was charming. One of our best AirBnB experiences.
I am so glad I ended up staying at Candice and Jaimason's home: their home has a very positive vibe even as you walk in. They are incredibly warm, welcoming, thoughtful, and great company, and their kids are beyond adorable! I felt so much at home, while I was there.
The house is beautiful, and my room couldn't have been more perfect.
Candice made me the yummiest banana-pecan pancakes on my last day,for breakfast. And I had a chance to meet with some of their other guests, who were super cool as well.
I would stay here anytime, and I would recommend their place to my friends.
Thanks for opening up your hearts and your home to me, guys :-)
ps: I fell in love with their adorable doggy!
My daughter and I had a lovely stay for one night with Jaimason and Candice and their adorable daughters and dog. I don't know how Candice does it all -- she also fixed us a very lovely breakfast in addition to being a lovely hostess. We definitely would stay there again if given the chance!
I had a great stay; easy to get to and off street parking. Thank you for being such wonderful hosts. If I come up again in August I will be staying with you.
I stayed with the McReynolds on a cross country road trip. Idaho Falls was my first stop. Their house was nice and clean and the room was great.
I had to be on the road early but Candice woke up and offered to cook me breakfast on my way out of town.
They were awesome hosts and make Idaho Falls a great stop to stopover.
Candice is an amazing host and her family is wonderful. We stayed for 5 nights and felt completely welcomed and at home the whole time. Her house is warm, inviting and has an incredibly unique and positive energy. We plan to stay again and I would highly recommend her home to any one. Thanks Candice!
The house, the room and especially the hosts are very friendly. We were warmly welcomed into Candice' home and had a wonderful night. It's perfect if you are heading from SLC to Yellowstone (that's what we did). Breakfast was outstanding, Candice is an excellent cook! We would definitely come back!
I had a great stay at Candice's home in Idaho Falls. She went out of her way to accommodate me (pretty last minute) and make me feel incredibly comfortable in her wonderful home. Her home has a lavender essence to it which made me very relaxed after a long drive through Yellowstone! She also reduced the cost of my night b/c she felt she could not be a great host but I beg to differ. She was gracious despite being very busy and even prepared an amazing breakfast in the morning. If in Idaho Falls, or close I would highly recommend staying here! my only regret was not getting there earlier to chat more with Candice. It was a truly lovely experience on the road!
