About this listing
Welcome to our home! 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. We now have a small guest refrigerator in the pantry. 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. The house is set up in such a way that we can have our own spaces.
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, robes and slippers, 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.
Linda and John were very nice and their home was intriguing, fill with fantastic art. Only sorry we could not visit more with them.
We loved our stay at Linda and John's. It was ideal to have a bed and bath to ourselves, separate from where they live, so we didn't have to worry about disturbing them. Everything about the space was super clean and comfortable.
Located in the Curtis Park area of Sacramento, the home is beautiful example of classic bungalow dwellings. Wood floors and moldings high and low, are a welcome changed to cookie cutter houses. Charming and unique, I loved the furnishings that added to the charm. The hosts were very welcoming and accommodating when I arrived after my scheduled time. The neighborhood is walkable, with a delightful café five blocks away. I felt very safe strolling at night, as there were people walking and biking, enjoying the cool summer air.
The bed was super comfortable – I’m very tall – and I had no issues. The room was quiet and the bath was a nice experience with stain glass window and marvelous tile.
If you want a true change of pace and experience a friendly, old school neighbor hood, this is the place to stay. I would recommend taking a walk around the vicinity and catch the tree in the middle of the street a few blocks down.
I really enjoyed my stay in this relaxing home and tree-lined neighborhood. The hosts are friendly and present, but not at all overbearing; they made all aspects of the reservation and arrival process very easy. My room was clean and private, I had my own mini fridge, plus space to work, read and relax in a cozy study. Great restaurants within walking distance. And Linda makes a mean granola. I highly recommend this hidden gem.
I felt welcomed by Linda and John
The furniture is the room are a bit shabby and old
but Linda and John are great host.
Linda & John are a riot!! They travel, bike, make/collect art, and dish up a fantastic home-made granola. Super fun to hang out with. There is also plenty of space and privacy to do your own thing -- in my case, a lot of work on phone & laptop. The house is a gorgeous historic craftsman, in a lovely walkable neighborhood close to good food & coffee. Bonus (does there need to be more?): Leontine the cat is a charming sprite.
Linda is really nice and the place is awesome! The bed is really comfortable and the shower is great! Their cat Leontein is super nice and cute! Great location as well! I would highly recommend this place!
About the Host, Linda And John
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.
