About this listing
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). Also a table and chair if you need a "desk". The room includes a dvd/tv, a fan, and blockout shades for darkness. Wi-fi 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/frig/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 available to you 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 free and 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.

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.
Notes for guests
•The cats are: Star (stripey Bengal) and Snuggles. They like your room, so be sure you don't lock them in when you leave.
•The sheet on the bed is to keep the cats off the bedspread for those with allergies. Please just remove it and throw it on the bicycle while you are here.
•Please do not lock the deadbolt on the front door. There is no key for it. Note the front door will lock behind you, so have your keys with you.
•DO NOT UNPLUG THE MODEM! Server: mycciC7 Passcode: ingkangaroo061
•Feel free to manipulate the temperature if you are here during the day when I have it scheduled off.
•But be sure to close all windows when leaving the house because the air is on auto.
•Please pull the shades from the handle and bottom bar only and do not touch the fabric.
•Feel free to use the kitchen.
•The trash is under the kitchen sink, the recycle is the cupboard to the right of that.
•Feel free to use body wash and shampoos in the shower. I got the body wash to eliminate the ick-factor of using someone else's bar soap.
•Bath towels are in the bathroom.
•Bucket is for water conservation. I catch water while it heats to hot. You don't need to do that unless you want to.
•If you wish to use the white bike, the combo lock for it is 1640. Feel free to adjust seat height. If I'm not using the green bike, same combo.
•When you leave, just leave the keys and close the door behind you.
