The Space

Cute, one bedroom, one bathroom spacious home in outskirts of town. One mile to Chico State College. Easy walk to college and downtown area. Attractively furnished with original artwork. Very clean and comfortable.
Bedroom has comfortable queen size bed. Dresser in bedroom and large closet. The living room has a futon couch for a third person. Good for one adult or 2 SMALL children. There is a 15.00 additional charge for the third guest. Extra linens/bath towels will be put out for their use. Full sized couch for flat screen TV/DVD viewing with cable connection. Wi Fi/ Internet.

Closet door in bedroom opens by just pulling out on handle, NOT turning which makes it appear to be locked.

Spacious bathroom with tub/shower combo. Towelsl, lotion, shampoo, conditioner, hair dryer and body wash/hand soap provided.

Kitchen has microwave, coffee maker, toaster oven, refrigerator, blender and four burner gas stove and cooking utensils. Plenty of dishes and silverware for your use.

There is a mini split heater and air conditioner in the living room. When turned on to either mode it takes about TWO MINUTES to either warm up or cool down the house. Please turn off when not present. In the summer if the kitchen blinds are left closed until about 3 PM the house stays much cooler. This also applies to the bedroom window blinds.

Restaurants and downtown shopping area nearby. We have provided a Chico area map as well as restaurant guide/menus and coupon book for local restaurants.

Lower Bidwell Park is close, just a bike ride away or 5 minute car ride. Upper Park is 10 - 12 minutes by car and absolutely beautiful. Chico has a great Farmers Market every Saturday morning and also on Thursday evening through the summer. The vendors offer local produce which is amazing. There are also several flower vendors that sell some gorgeous bouquets. A smaller market sets up on Wednesday mornings in the summer near Trader Joes. Happy to give suggestions for activities.

Coffee, tea, 1/2 & 1/2,fresh fruit/yogurt provided upon arrival. We have eliminated bottled water in order to not contribute to plastic pollution. There is a Brita water filter for your use.

Outdoor Weber BBQ with mesquite available upon request. Small outdoor table and chairs are available also. There is a front porch attached to the house in carport area to enjoy morning coffee.

Interaction with Guests

Greeting upon arrival and happy to answer any questions about the house or the area. Chat a bit but respectful of your privacy.

The Neighborhood

Proximity close to campus and downtown yet a quiet, safe area on the outskirts of town. There is an almond processing plant across the street that operates in September and October. The huller goes 24/7 and sounds like a fan going when outside. The windows are double paned and you do not hear it when inside. Guests have said that it is not an issue.

Getting Around

Several taxi companies to call and also nearby bus service. 20 minute pleasant walk to town. Chico is bike friendly, so if bringing a bicycle it is enjoyable to bike the area or throughout the park.

Other Things to Note

Most of the guests have noted that the cottage/house is larger than it appears in the photos. All the rooms are spacious. The dwelling is approximately 1150 square feet in size.
