Cozy Cottage Close To Downtown

House - Entire home/apt · West Idaho Street, Boise, ID 83702, United States

The Space

This recently renovated 1940s charmer will make you feel right a home. Located within walking distance of downtown on Idaho Street, this cozy cottage offers guests access to everything within minutes: shops, restaurants, event centers, the green belt, grocery store and more. Fairview Park is located four houses away and provides a great playground for children as well as tennis and basketball courts for the sport enthusiasts.

One bedroom with queen bed, one bath, sleeper sofa in living room, basically-equipped kitchen, cable TV and WI-FI. Amenities also include shampoo, conditioner, body wash and hair dryer.

This tastefully decorated home has original hardwood floors, professional artwork, new bed, new couch and love seat and 46" flat screen TV. Only high-quality, 100% cotton linens are used for bedding and bath. The sleeper sofa is more suitable for small children.

Guests should keep in mind that other guests may be in the Lower Level Garden Suite in terms of normal noise (apartment living). We ask that all guests be respectful of each other, especially late at night.

There is a small and cute backyard which is shared space with the guests of the Garden Suite.

I am usually able to accommodate early check-ins (before 4 PM). Call, text, or email me to arrange an early check-in time. If I have a guest coming the day you are checking out, then I ask that you check out at 11 AM so I have enough time to prepare the suite for the new guest.

No smoking on property, no pets, no unruly or illegal behavior.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • My husband, 14-month old daughter, and I stayed in MaLinda's cozy cottage recently and had a wonderful stay! We've stayed in many vacation rentals over the past couple years and have rarely met our hosts but we were delighted to meet MaLinda. She was warm, inviting, and offered to help with whatever she could. The cottage was walking distance to downtown, very clean, and well appointed. The towels and linens were great and the cottage was generally homey and comfortable. Check-in and out were among the easiest we've encountered! We would highly recommend it!

  • We had a great time at the Cozy Cottage. The cottage was extremely clean and well appointed (even fresh half-and-half in the 'fridge!). We also had a nice time chatting with the very friendly host, Malinda. All in all, great!

  • My wife and I loved everything about our stay. The home was beautiful and warm. MaLinda was great. You could not do better.

  • This was my 1st airbnb experience and I fear my future stays will be a letdown - this experience was THAT good. I traveled to Boise for work and opted to try airbnb instead of a traditional hotel. The host was extremely flexible with my late arrival time and the place was spotlessly clean and smelled really nice. Having a real living room/kitchen and back yard really made my off-time relaxing. If my travels bring me back to Boise I will absolutely be choosing this option again or ANY of the properties handled by Malinda.

  • This was our second time staying in MaLinda's lovely cottage, and this this where I'll always prefer to stay whenever I am in Boise. I love it here. The cottage is charming and comfortable, and spotlessly clean. The neighborhood is quiet and close to downtown, with plenty of parking. MaLinda is wonderfully friendly and quick to respond to any requests.

  • MaLinda Nelson has to be to be the most perfect "airbnb" host ever! The home was charming, welcoming, beautifully and tastefully decorated, comfortable, impeccably clean -- everything I could have wanted, and more. She has given ultimate attention to everything that could make one's stay pleasant and perfect. (And she, too, is all of same.) Thank you, "airbnb" and MaLinda for my wonderful home away from home! I'll be back! Linda

  • Beautiful cottage. Highly recommend. Host is extremely responsive and made the trip very easy.

  • Once again our stay at Malinda's rental was nothing less than magical! We stayed in another of her properties for our honeymoon, and this time we stayed in the Cozy Cottage for a weekend visit to Boise. Malinda's properties possess a certain touch that can immediately transport you to a wonderful sense of beauty and enjoyment! We're thankful for the qualities that her properties have, and we certainly hope to be back soon!
