The Space

Great location just minutes from downtown, quiet neighborhood, relaxing backyard perfect for lounging; these are just some of the gems that await at our property. I'm told the bed is extremely comfortable, too! Public transportation is close by as well. We look forward to having you stay with us!

We are a married couple with a 2 bedroom 1920's bungalow for rent. The bedroom has a queen bed and a dresser with storage for your things. It features wood floors and dark curtains to keep the light out. If you require additional sleeping spaces, we have a twin bed in a back bedroom separate from the house (with no bathroom) as well as a full size pullout couch. Our accommodation ideally sleeps two, but other surfaces are available for short-term guests. There are spare bicycles available for use at your leisure, as well as helmets. (Bring a lock if you have one). Your room has clean towels, some toiletries, a hairdryer, hot water teapot and tea, but if you'd like something else, we can accommodate. We have homemade preserves for sale made with local fruit. :-)

We have affectionate city chickens, an outdoor kitchen/lounge space, a resident artist, fun neighbors, and a cute little old house.

What to expect: Depends on the day! If its a weekend and you want to hang out, we are happy to! Weekdays we are far more likely to be out of your space and doing our "weekday routine," but it's really up to you.

Our home features: a private outdoor entertaining/lounge/kitchen area, a hot tub, a living room, dining room, wireless internet, free street parking, washer/dryer, kitchen, books, games, weights and yoga mats, and one shared bathroom. Guests have access to everything in our home.

In the Summer, we use solar hot water and you are welcome to all the fresh cherry tomatoes you can pick!

Our neighborhood has some gems: plenty of parking, a local bakery (Freeport Bakery) and donut shop (Marie's Donuts) close by. The zoo and Fairytale town are close by as well as a huge Sunday farmers market. Our home is located walking/biking distance to the capitol, convention center, parks, the zoo, Old Sacramento, and numerous restaurants/bars/galleries/clubs downtown as well as several restaurants and a local brewery on Broadway (New Helvetia). Light rail and bus stops are conveniently located 1-2 blocks away. We are right off the freeway, and you have use of a bicycle while staying here.

We have 2 cats (pretty shy and out of the way, one is outdoor mostly), a puppy, and a few chickens in the yard. In the summer/fall, we have a garden with fresh vegetables/herbs. Someone will come by to take care of the chickens and puppy if we're gone so you don't have to.

Smoking is allowed outdoors only. We are gay friendly, gluten-free/dairy/corn free friendly, and open to hosting naturists/nude sunbathers.

Local: There is a great farmers market at W and 8th St Saturday mornings from 7-12pm, an antique fair every Second Sunday within walking distance of our place, and a Second Saturday Art Walk within biking distance (midtown). There are several bars and restaurants within walking distance as well as an old movie theatre aside a restaurant that serves great brunch, dinner, and desserts! (Tower Cafe)

Thank you!

Also, please keep your door closed or she may get into your belongings if she sees something of interest for chewing!

  • Briana and George are a great couple! They have an absolutely GORGEOUS home, and are more than happy to help, whether you are looking for a good conversation, or the nearest breakfast spot. I would highly recommend staying with them, and greatly enjoyed my time there!

  • We had a great, short stay with Briana! The room was very nice, and the bed was quite comfortable! We loved the outdoor kitchen area, and spent a little bit of time out there. I fell in love with their puppy! They were very friendly and welcoming. I would stay there again for sure.

  • You can't help but relax here - Briana and George are easy going, flexible and friendly. Their place is cute and wonderfully located. They helped to make our first airbnb experience a repeat! Thanks again!

  • Even though my stay was short, Briana's place is absolute perfection! Couldn't have picked a better place for just a one night stay. Extremely homey, clean and comfortable, not to mention the guest bed is pure heaven since I haven't slept that well in ages. Briana and her husband are such nice and welcoming people, would definitely recommend their place and would love to stay again if I were to visit Sacramento in the future!

  • What a great space in the heart of Sacramento!!!
    Briana and George were great hosts and I fell in love with their Furbaby, Sophie. The 4 poster bed is very comfortable and there is no outside noise. If we ever visit Sacramento again, I would love to stay here again.

  • Warm and friendly couple with a wonder pup named Sophie. Easy walking distance to shops and restaurants.

    April 2014
  • This is such a lovely home surrounded by beautiful old trees and flowers.
    The bed was very comfy. The hot tub and glass of wine hit the spot. Briana and George made us feel so welcome. Sophia, the pup was very loving and well behaved. You cannot go wrong staying with these folks, they make you feel right at home. You can walk most anywhere in this quaint section of town. We walked to the best Thai restaurant and then for breakfast went to the Tower Cafe for brunch. Wow! That was a treat to remember. Five stars and we will return.

  • Briana and George where great hosts. Their adorable puppy Sophie was so cute. They were so understanding of my late arrival due to a delayed flight and very accommodating.

About
We are a fun-loving chill married couple, sometimes quiet and sometimes like to go out and have a great time dancing or at social events. I'm a super positive gal who loves an adventure, the outdoors, and hanging with friends. I love chatting over coffee or drinks, dancing, movies, taking walks or bikerides, animals, and evenings at home. I'll try almost anything once! I'm part hippie and part city girl, you'll know what that means when you meet me. I laugh a lot, love theatre, and am just starting to garden. My husband is in the Coast Guard full time and he is a painter (mostly oil) He LOVES to talk painting if it's one of your interests: ((website hidden)) I'm allergic to gluten, corn, and dairy so you might find some unusual foods in our cabinets, but we eat pretty healthy- mostly meat & veggies. We don't do a whole lot on weeknights so if you're looking for someone to show you around, it probably isn't us. Weekends we are generally more flexible to go out and explore/hike/bicycle/go to bars/events or go to the mountains. There's always something going on around Sacramento: cultural events, festivals, antique shows, etc. We both enjoy thrift shopping, bicycling, beer & wine fests, theatre, and art. A BBQ at home is a typical event for us. Our backyard is great for entertaining and we love relaxing, chatting, and music.
