Walk or use my loaner bike(s) to get all over downtown and to many attractions like Old Town, the historic cemetery, the Capitol, the Crocker museum, Stanford mansion, and more. Everything you need, easily accessible!
Loaner bike(s). Nothing fancy, but available if you want to bike around town. Free parking at my house, bike while you visit.
You get a full (not queen) bed in the guest room, which is why it is most suited for one person (two is tight). The room includes a dvd/tv. Wifi is included. Due to the small nature of my house and lack of storage space, the room does hold my own belongings in the closet. There is only one, shared bathroom (again another reason why 1 guest preferred). You are welcome to use the kitchen/living room. Some guests have cooked meals in the kitchen and I'm ok with that.
I have 2 cats and so should not be allergic to cats as they are friendly with strangers. The house is non-smoking, although you can outside. Don't mind 420. I have a private back yard for relaxing.
Would prefer no more than 4-6 nights and at least 2 days notice as I am a rather busy person. Please give a week's notice if possible. Male guests: MUST have at least 2 reviews and a photo.
All areas but my bedroom.
Interaction with Guests
I can guide or take people around depending on time and circumstances. I tend to be very active, even on weeknights. I don't drink, so don't expect me to do the bar scene or wine tasting. I am definitely a foodie with a local food blog and over 100 restaurant reviews from $ to $$$$. I'm very involved with Sacramento's restaurant and food truck scene. I've had a few repeat guests here on business.
I live downtown within biking and walking distance to many attractions like Old Town, the historic cemetery, the Capitol, the Crocker museum, Stanford mansion, and more. There's a Target store a block away, as well as banks, restaurants, stores, and an independent movie theater. I'm just off the freeway, so easy to find. You can't ask for a better location. See my Guidebook.
Use one of my loaner bikes to get around. Parking on the street is safe. 1.5 miles from Amtrak. I've been popular with people going to conferences who just walk the 20-30 minute walk to the convention center.
Other Things to Note

Again, you should not have a problem/allergy with cats. As to my anti-cat reviewer, she knew there were cats in the house. It's obvious. I keep a sheet on top of the bed to keep the bedding free of cat fur. There's a door that can be closed. I don't like dogs so I'm less inclined to book a location with dogs. I would expect the same. I think you can see from all my other reviews that this is a non-issue.
No smoking inside.
I'm pretty easy going. Just realize that I'm also very busy.
Catherine was fast responding and clear in her communication. She really has everything on hand for her guests. I felt comfortable to use her home. I especially needed quiet time and privacy to unwind after being at an intensive conference and she was easygoing in that regard. Great location to walk to the convention center, which was why I was there.
Catherine's place was warm and cozy. I had a wonderful time. She was not home when I first arrived but left the keys for me and we got a chance to talk later in the evening. It was my first Airbnb stay and it was a good experience.
Leider hat uns der Aufenthalt bei Catherine nicht gut gefallen, da das Zimmer + Haus nicht so sauber waren, wie auf den Bildern zu sehen ist. Auch die Umgebung war für uns nicht ansprechend.
I'm rather shocked as I had just shampooed the carpets before their arrival and cleaned my house. I've stayed in a few airbnbs myself and feel I offer a very comfortable and clean home compared to some I've stayed in. My neighborhood is not attractive, but it is safe. I've had several repeat guests, which I feel says something in itself. Can't please everyone.
The reservation was canceled 11 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Unfortunately I didn't get the chance to meet Catherine but she seems very interesting! The house is very cozy and clean I would recommend anybody staying there!
Cat was a great host! Everything in description was accurate, and she went out of her way to make the stay a wonderful experience. Very high recommendation.
I've traveled my whole life thanks to dad working in Saudi Arabia. Too many countries to list. I'm British/Filipina mix but call Sacramento home since 1987. I am very active and know my city really well. I'm always happy to help people with suggestions of places to go and eat. I have a food blog on the side because I love good food.
