Description

The Space

Located in downtown Davis, across the street from the Davis Food Co-op and walking distance to all the best downtown dining and shopping. Located 9 blocks from UC Davis. Ample street parking available right outside your door.

This is a recently remodeled detached studio that doubles as an office/guest house. It has a bathroom/shower, a futon, and a desk. We recently removed the treadmill to create more space. The space includes cable television, high-speed internet, and a land-line phone with free nationwide calling, and a small refrigerator and pod-style coffee maker.

This guest house is located behind a main house occupied by a family of 4, including two young children and a very friendly dog.

Guest Access

You will have your own, private detached structure with a bathroom and kitchenette (toaster, microwave, small refrigerator, coffee maker). Feel free to make use of the courtyard area between the houses - to relax, or store your bikes. Please let us know if you would like a loaner bike while you're in town!

Interaction with Guests

We are happy to provide recommendations for dining or other activities. Just ask!

The Neighborhood

Old North Davis (now considered part of Downtown Davis) was the first residential development in the City of Davis. The old sidewalks still show the concrete stamps of the 50 houses that made up "The Bower's Addition." The charming cottages of this era (most in the 1940s) are built in the Traditional Minimal architectural style - basic cottages with small footprints. District design guidelines have ensured that remodels (like ours) preserve the character of the Traditional Minimal style.

Getting Around

From the airport, consider a taxi (available curbside) or the Davis Airporter (group van). Travel to Sacramento and San Francisco is easy with Amtrak trains. The train station is only four blocks from our house. If you're going to San Francisco on the train, you will take the Amtrak "Capitol Corridor" to Richmond, where you will transfer to a BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) train. There are several BART trains so just look for the one that goes to San Francisco/San Francisco Airport from Richmond. Service to UC Davis is provided by the Unitrans Bus, but since our place is only 9 blocks from campus, its faster to walk or ride. Please ask if you would like to borrow a bike!

Other Things to Note

Following your booking confirmation, we will follow up with detailed instructions for parking and accessing the property.
