We are thrilled to be named Super Hosts! Our 1915 Craftsman bungalow is full of art, with comfortable guest room, walk in shower with rain head, and bathroom gallery. The neighborhood is great for walking with parks, restaurants, and groceries.
Welcome to our remodeled 1915 Craftsman bungalow in Curtis Park, a leafy, diverse, walkable neighborhood about 2 miles from the capitol in Sacramento. Our house is full of art from friends, family, and that we've collected here and around the world.
The guest room with pillow top queen bed is on the main floor, with a wonderful newly remodeled bathroom adjoining. There is an empty wardrobe for your use with fresh robes and slippers, plus closet space drawers in both the bedroom and bathroom.
There is a desk in the corner of the dining room with good lighting and a power strip where guests can work. Since we are either back in the office our out, you have the room to yourself.
The bath has a huge walk in shower with rain head and hand sprayer. You'll love the bathroom "gallery"! There is plenty of privacy. Our bedroom and bath is upstairs.
Within walking distance are a great grocery store, several restaurants, and a light rail station. We have 2 mountain bikes you can borrow, too.
We are happy to offer fresh ground coffee, loose tea, and home made granola. Guests are free to use the kitchen. We usually have some fresh produce from the garden to share.
We currently have one cat, Leontien, who is the professional guest greeter.
For those requesting lodging, we'd appreciate it if you included your photo and something about yourself on your airbnb profile. We would also really like it if you would leave a review after your stay.
Guest room, bath, living room, dining room, TV room, kitchen, outdoors. As mentioned in The Neighborhood below, we have mountain bikes we can loan to our guests.
Interaction with Guests
We love to interact with guests, but if guests want their own space we will be happy to leave them alone.
Our neighborhood is great! It is so friendly and old fashioned, with sidewalks and small lots. We know and socialize with our neighbors. People can walk, bike, or take light rail into midtown, and our guests can too.
As mentioned above, there is light rail 3 blocks away, and we have loaner mountain bikes.
Other Things to Note
We take seriously the private feedback from our guests, and try to improve anything that they might find wanting. Since we started hosting, we have changed the mattress, made room for personal items in the bedroom and bath, added a water jug and glasses, a guest desk, and tried to make our print out for guests as clear as possible. We always are trying to enhance the experience. BTW we are not vegetarian or gluten free, but we try to eat locally and in season.
No smoking, no pets. Leontien the cat needs to stay in at night. She is clever and can open the front screen door, so if it's evening, either latch the screen or keep the main door closed so she won't sneak out.
My husband and I really enjoyed our time here. Linda was quick to respond to all messages I sent prior to our stay. She and John (and Leontien the cat) are very friendly and welcoming, and we enjoyed the gallery tour of their house. The room was comfortable and cozy. I loved the thoughtful touches, like the bottle of water in the room and the space heater in the bathroom. I wish we could have stayed longer and would definitely stay again the next time we're in the area.
Staying at Linda and John's made me feel right at home. It was interesting, warm, and inviting! Loved Leontien. Appreciated the local restaurant recommendations. Thanks!
A great first experience with AirBNB. Linda and John's house worked out very well for us. It was an excellent place to stay in a great part of Sacramento. Linda and John are very friendly hosts. I would recommend staying there for your next visit. We will be back.
Linda and John were the kind of hosts I like: welcoming, generous, laid back, and not at all overbearing. I spent little time at their place as I was on a family visit, but every morning they shared coffee and refrigerator space for my food. They are cyclists and spent most days away from home. The room was comfortable and very quiet, perfect for relaxing and sleeping. I look forward to going back on my next trip!
It is exactly how it is described "Art-filled Craftsman" It was fun looking at their art collection in their home. They live in a real fun neighborhood...and Linda and John were great at giving us tips on good restaurants, cafes and microbreweries. You can tell they love there neighborhood and I can see why. They let us borrow some bikes and that was a great way to see Sacramento. We were inspired by Linda and John, with their travels and interests. If we find ourselves in Sacramento again we would easily stay with them again.

I love staying at Linda and John's lovely home. I always sleep so well
there. The guest bathroom is gorgeous... So artful, clean and
well appointed. I could live in that bathroom! As hosts, they're the best.
My only complaint is that they are booked so often I rarely get to stay with them!
Great house and hosts! Very comfortable stay in a great neighborhood in Sacramento. Home is close to everything, and hosts Linda & John were very accommodating.
Linda and John are lucky to be able spend a lot of time together. We are bicyclists of many years, and we work together in the cycling industry, specializing in custom clothing.
Linda and John love to meet new people from all over the world, whether traveling or hosting. We have been focusing on Spanish speaking countries lately, since we have been studying Spanish for quite a few years now. We love to see new places, but also like to return to delve more into the local culture.
We love our friendly neighborhood-we know and socialize with our neighbors. We have a block wine tasting group, and are in a book club. We like second-hand and artisan shopping and coffee cafes, and enjoy gardening and cooking. Linda does Vinyasa yoga and John is getting into yoga, too. We are cat people, and we think you'll see why we love our Leontien.
Airbnb has enriched our lives so much, both as hosts and guests.
