I stayed at Nikki's house first time this weekend with my guest artists from Hungary. Her house is spacious, clean and comfortable. I would recommend it to everyone who's looking for a charming place to stay.

Nikki is a wonderful host, always available to help with anything you need! What a beautiful home in a beautiful neighborhood! Natural light everywhere during the day and cool breeze in the evening. The toys and the back yard was definitely a plus for our kids. We would love to stay here again!!!

We had an excellent visit to northern CA, and staying at this house was the icing on the cake. My family felt right at home and settled in quickly. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful, so if unwinding is on your to-do list this is a great spot to get that done. It's mostly hardwood flooring except in the large sun-room where kids can roll on the floor or curl into an oversized cushy chair for reading a book. The kitchen is open and inviting, we cooked several meals in there and enjoyed breakfast at the small kitchen table overlooking the front yard. My family will definitely look back fondly at this extended weekend. Nikki is an excellent hostess, responding quickly to any questions I had without it being a burden. I can't recommend her enough. We will definitely look this house up again if the need arises!

A very nice home. We felt relaxed while staying here, and it's filled with natural lighting due to all the skylights. Definitely a place we would stay again.

I love to travel, and when not traveling, I'm dreaming up my next adventure. A cup of coffee, a long rainy afternoon, and a pile of travel books make for my favorite kinds of days.
