The Space

My house is located in desirable historic downtown Nevada City, within walking distance to historic sights, shopping, restaurants, walking and biking trails. And yet, it feels like you are out in the country since the house is located on top of one of Nevada City's hills and surrounded by almost 1 acre of land. It is set back from the main road and hence very quiet for a downtown location. The building is historic, built in 1932. Consequently, it has a lot of old world charm, just like Nevada City!
The house has 3 bedrooms and a small office/laundry room, one bathroom, screened in front porch and large back yard. There is a basketball hoop, a detached garage and a small bonus room attached to the garage, with wall-to-wall carpet and large windows. I am renting 1 bedroom in my house which has windows on two fronts, a dresser and queen size bed. There is fast wifi throughout the house. The shared bathroom is directly accessible from the bedroom. For those who have the need for extra space I also rent a second bedroom and have a full size good quality pull out sofa in the living room. Additionally, the whole house is for rent as well. Please refer to my "whole house rental listing" on the airbnb site. Guests are welcome to use the kitchen, which has a gas range, dishwasher and is overall well equipped. (I like to cook!)
There is a 36" flat screen TV in the living room with lots of dish network channels for your convenience (the same in the 2nd bedroom). In summer you will find lounge chairs, a dining table and hammock in the backyard.
A short walk takes guests to all the Nevada City restaurants and shops. Hiking and biking trails start right at the house. Public transportation (bus) is 7 minute walk away. The beautiful Yuba River is only 10 minutes away by car.
My house combines the historic gold mining style with European charm (I am from Europe).
I request to leave your dog at home unless it is very small, then please check in with me prior to booking. Thank you!
PS: I request guests to remove their shoes in the house.

  • Sunshine was very friendly and helpful. The house is quaint and quiet at night in a peaceful wooded area just a short walk to downtown Nevada City. We will be back!

  • This was our first airbnb experience. The house and room are as described and a perfect location. We chose this airbnb for its easy access to go sailing at Scotts Flat Lake just a 15 minute drive and also just a few blocks from the charm of Nevada City. A highlight for us was sitting in the enclosed porch in the quite of the evening, sipping wine and having a fun and interesting conversation with Sabine. We are looking forward to future stays. Thank you Sabine

  • Sunshine's house in Nevada City was a very nice place to stay, and Sunshine is a very gracious host. The house is very clean with good energy, and it sits in a beautiful yard with very nice lounging chairs. Walking distance to downtown too, for the win.

    Response from Sabine (Sunshine):

    Corey, thanks for your feedback! I actually have a fan for the room, all rooms, just did not feel the need to take it out yet, hahah, projecting my own temperature needs on others…Thanks for alerting me to that. Really appreciate the feedback! All the best, Sunshine

  • Sunshine was super cool, greeted us, gave us the lowdown on the area, and sent us on our way to a really good dinner recommendation!
    place was quiet, clean, comfortable.
    We'll stay there again sometime I'm sure!
    Thumbs up, 10/10, 5 stars!

  • We felt welcomed and had a convenient and comfortable two-night stay in Nevada City.

    April 2014
  • The home and room was rustic and inviting. The bed was comfy! Plenty of space for me to unpack and be comfortable. Even through I shared a bath, I had private access from my room and there was no problem. My weekend schedule and Sunshine's made it so that my stay was self-service - which was fine!
