The Space

A large, naturally lit bedroom - complete with a brand new mattress, memory foam topper, and linens - awaits you! You'll have your own private bathroom, private from the rest of the house, so you don't have to be self-conscious about walking to the bathroom in your pajamas :)

We've just moved in and therefore just designed your guest room - everything is new! Well, with the exception of a few things we've collected in our travels around the world - enjoy our souvenirs from living in Morocco, Spain, and Senegal.

If there are more than two of you we have an air mattress that will fit in the room.

(Also, if you're interested in the whole house - 3 bed/2 bath - shoot us a message or find our whole-house listing.)

The rest of the house:
You'll have access to our large living room, sunny dining nook and kitchen of course. A space in the refrigerator awaits you. Our front and back yards get great sun which you can enjoy on our back patio, surrounded by our lime tree, orange tree, and large Japanese maple, amongst other large trees.

We're located in truly the best area of Chico. We live in a historic home on a historic block. We are just 4 blocks to Bidwell Park, a 15 minute stroll to downtown, and just beyond that is the campus! We walk to dinner regularly. You can also walk to the farmers market on Saturday mornings. Shubert's homemade ice cream is dangerously close, a few blocks, as is the best breakfast in town - Cafe Coda.

Street parking in front of our house is plentiful.

What we provide:
- Coffee, tea, fresh fruit, sometimes more :)
- Fully stocked bathroom
- New comfy sheets and towels
- A new mattress
- Space to sit outside in a tree-filled yard
- Laundry for stays longer than 3 days
- and the best LOCATION

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We really enjoyed our stay at Megan & Jonathan's house. My partner and I were in town to attend a wedding in Durham and we popped "home" and back frequently. The house was conveniently located and had plenty of parking right out front, making for easy shuffling of all our various dresses & suits & gifts into and out of our car.

    Megan was super flexible about my uncertain late arrival on Friday night after dinner. Our paths didn't cross until Saturday, when she and I shared a relaxed, easy conversation in their beautiful sunny kitchen. Megan was super friendly and eager to offer suggestions for restaurants and a nail salon (last minute mani/pedi before the wedding!) as well as fun chatting about weddings and travel. I did not meet Jonathan during our stay but I can only imagine he's equally friendly!

    Megan is an enthusiastic proponent of AirBnB and it shows in the way the room is decorated. As an AirBnB host myself, I took notes and will copy a few of her nicer touches! A bowl with plenty of washcloths, lots of options for shampoo / body wash / etc. in the shower, plenty of various pillows and blankets for a comfortable night's rest no matter your preferences. I wound up having to sleep on the couch both nights because my partner, bless his heart, was snoring - and the couch is super comfy, too! I slept like a baby once I curled up in the living room. My only complaint is the creaky wooden floors constantly made me feel guilty for getting up in the wee hours of the night and possibly disturbing our hosts' sleep, but they never said a word and the guest room is located quite far from their bedroom so I'm sure it was fine.

    After hosting for about four months, this was our first experience staying as AirBnB guests and it was a lovely introduction. I'd recommend their house to anyone visiting Chico. It's comfortable, sunny, spacious, beautifully decorated, and the hosts are very welcoming and friendly!

  • We rented Megan and Jonathan's beautiful vintage Chico home for our son's graduation. Chico is a great walking town and this house is within walking distance to EVERYTHING! Ample parking - TONS of room! Beautiful open floor plan, lovely backyard, well appointed kitchen. SUPER comfortable beds! We felt so at home here - the house is beautifully decorated with treasures from M & J's travels but not stuffy or over decorated. Just a wonderful, comfortable, welcoming home. We would definitely stay here again!

  • Megan and Jonathan were gracious hosts and their classic Chico house is conveniently located a 5 minute walk from central downtown area.
    Would not hesitate to recommend them.

  • My boyfriend & I had a wonderful stay at Megan and Jonathan's house. We did not get a chance to meet the couple but their house was perfect for our stay. It is situated in easy walking distance from Bidwell Park and downtown Chico. The house itself is cozy, clean & beautifully decorated! I Definitely recommend it!

  • Our stay at Megan and Jonathan's house was fantastic. Their house is beautiful, clean, and in a great location. We walked to Sierra Nevada brewery and downtown to dinner. We never had to use our car! The room we stayed in was very nice, had a very comfy bed, and had a lot of privacy as it was in it's own wing of the house. We also had our own bathroom next to our room. Highly recommend.

  • This is a room in a lovely vintage home, well located in Chico. The home is perfectly maintained. It has a clean, organic sensibility. Megan and Jonathan are open and hospitable, well traveled and well educated. They were very respectful of our privacy. The bed was super comfortable.

  • Megan and Jonathan were great hosts! Very accomodating and enjoyable to talk with. They have a fabulous, historic home with a comfy guest room in a vibrant neighborhood. We wish we could have stayed longer!

  • Megan and Jonathan were such fabulous hosts! They have a charming and very comfortable home that is withing easy walking distance to downtown. This was our first experience with Airbnb and this was such a great experience from start to finish. Megan and Jonathan have a lot of travel experience and brought all that knowledge to the finer touches and their version of a comfortable and special vacation experience.Very comfortable bed, plush linens and a private bath with really good shower! They gave us ample space, morning coffee, evening tea and great tips on things to do and (website hidden) feels like we made new friends! Can't wait to go back to Chico! LOVED IT!!!

  • We had a terrific weekend in Chico staying with Megan & Jonathan in their sweet and wonderfully located home! We were able to walk to Bidwell Park, the Farmers Market, downtown Chico and even to my son's dorm on campus! We enjoyed some nice runs right out of their front door.

    The accommodations were perfect! We stayed in their guest room which is located in the front portion of their home - so when we came in we didn't feel like we were intruding on their personal space. The bedroom was great - comfy bed - great pillows, good lighting to read by at night, nice closet and drawers for unpacking! The bathroom was nice, private and clean.

    Megan and Jonathan were very personable and seemed to enjoy having others stay in their home (they have personal experience traveling via airbnb's which I think helped them set up their place perfectly!). They made us feel comfortable.

    We definitely plan to visit Chico again in the future and will put them at the top of our list for accommodations!

We are a couple in our early 30's, no kids, and we love to travel. We've lived on 5 different continents together. We love cooking, gardening, hiking, running, and playing team sports. Megan is a Spanish teacher and cross-country coach and Jonathan a business analyst, which he does from our home office. Last year we traveled all over the US and stayed in 9 different AirBnb homes, staying in most of them for 3-8 weeks each! It was so fun and we really got to experience what life is like in different parts of the country. Now it's our turn to offer up our home and we couldn't be more excited to be hosts. We look forward to meeting you!
