Neighborhood: Dining: Shopping: Transit: Personal Transport

Our neighborhood was the first suburban development over 35 years ago in this once rich agricultural location in California's central valley - called the Bread Basket. Today, just on the outskirts, development of new vineyards and wineries are reclaiming that history

The Oak Tree Park in the walking distance:
Nothing compares with jogging along the 2 mile trail through this lovely park. Expansive shaded oak trees, inhabited by a community of squirrels, Geese and ducks flocking about, and plenty of green grass space to take a leisurely stroll, or sit and just relax.

Fine restaurant cuisine selections, natural food grocery stores, and all service amenities are available in Elk Grove. Just ask and we'll direct you to what fits your taste.

For transit routes, please check the e- tran schedule online.

(San Francisco Airport arrivals may take BART to the Oakland Amtrak Station and then Amtrak to Sacramento.)

Guest Access

Guest has access to the kitchen and laundry. We have off street parking next to the house. You are free to come and go accordingly, just let us know what your plans are in advance.

Interaction with Guests

We keep it open and flexible to what you prefer. We work at home, so one of us is usually around in the office. In the evening we retire early. More than happy to socialize and as well we respect individuals personal boundaries during their stay.

The Neighborhood

Our Elk Grove community is one of the older neighborhoods in comparison to the new development on the west side of Hwy 99. It's quiet and there is a large oak forest park less than a mile from our home. Easy access to Hwy 99 to go to downtown Sacramento to tour the Capitol and Old Town.

Getting around

Public transit is not great in Elk Grove. If you're traveling by train or plane, let us know. For a minimal fee we will pick you up. Otherwise, check the Elk Grove eTrans website and Sacramento Metro for schedules. If you arrive at the airport, there is a shuttle, $35, that will bring you to our door. You can rent car if you prefer.

Other Things to Note

The best attribute, other than what our guests say about the peaceful, relaxing atmosphere of our home is the big oak forest park nearby. Excellent for jogging of just taking a good walk. Plenty of good restaurants in the area.

    February 2014
  • It was such a wonderful, peaceful and joyful time with Jalena, Rich and the lovely dog, Dusty. I was on the mission and purpose of my trip in the greater Sacramento area. It was very productive to me. I am grateful and so thankful to Jalena, Rich and Dusty to be part of my journey in 2013.

    Jalena and Rich are one of the most loving, caring and fun host family, we had great laughers everyday and I truly enjoyed the humors and interesting and intelligent conversation around the family. They were very thoughtful, considerate and kind during my visit. I also felt very welcoming and inviting to the family. We had a great Christmas together. The fireplace, music, Christmas tree by the bay window, the blessed lunch with healthy green tea and home made desert by Jalena were absolutely delicious.

    I am looking forward to my return in the summer next year. They will be missed especially the lovely Dusty. He is amazingly well train with great manner and understanding of human, Dusty is so smart, healthy, kind and good looking as well. I love Dusty!

    November 2013
  • Rich was a great host. The room and bathroom were clean and very comfortable. The neighbourhood is beautiful, with a great park nearby for jogging! I had work at UCDavis, and it was a short trip to get there and back. I definitely recommend staying at Rich and Jelena's!

    November 2013
  • I did not get to meet Jelena but Rich and Dusty were great companions. Would definitely recommended to anyone who wants a peaceful place to live in Elk Grove with friendly hosts.

    November 2013
  • Jelena and Rich have a lovely home and warm hearts a perfect combination for a busy traveler like myself. The room, bed and bathroom were so clean and I felt right at home. Jelena was extremely accommodating even though I arrived quite late on my first night stay. I highly recommend this space for anyone looking for a perfect home away from home.

    October 2013
  • Our experience at Jelena & Rich was very good, we had a comfortable bedroom + bath and we enjoyed Rich's stories and followed his suggestions on our way to Napa valley!
    That was all we needed for our stay in Sacramento and we hope we can be back at their place to stay for our next trip!

    August 2013
  • I liked them so much, I had another opportunity to pass by their way, so I stayed again! So accommodating, friendly, great conversationalist, enlightening, and just gotta say their dog Rusty is a sweetheart! Thanks R & J!
