Great spot! Downtown is within walking distance. Charming and quiet!
Neil's place was just what I was looking for. Convenient to the train station and with the added benefit of the Food Coop nearby. Thanks for making it easy Neil. Not everyone is ok (email hidden)-organizing the coffee supplies!
Neil was a very good host. His studio well located, right in the center of town (though Neil's own street is quiet and safe), and he was very responsive to all of our questions. Though we never met him in person (we arrived late and checked out early), Neil knew that one of the main reasons we wanted to visit Davis was to explore on bike, and he thoughtfully left a bike map in the studio for us -- extremely helpful! We would definitely stay with him again.
We're so lucky to have found this place and have stayed several times. We appreciate knowing that anytime we're in Davis we've got a great place to stay.
Our experiencein Neil's studio was excellent! Fresh beers and fruits were waiting for us at our arrival, the studio was very clean and comfy and the area very quiet. Definitely a place to stay while in Davis!
And thank you for having lent us your bike !
Great Time Good Stay Thanks To Host
Neil's place is fantastic. Lovely location accessible to everything in Davis. He generously offered a bike and helmet for me to use during my stay which gave me the option to explore even more. It also made my commute to the far end of campus that much easier. The studio is immaculate and has everything you need. Neil even provides some snacks and water. I will definitely be back to stay next time I'm in Davis!
I'm very happy that we choose to stay here. It was clean, with nice linens, and the neighborhood was very quiet. We were completely in our own world, away from friendly conversation and social interactions. Thank you for a nice experience.
Great place to stay, excellent host!
I stayed at this studio for about 5 weeks while doing a UC-Davis internship and I found it to be a very cozy little spot! The place is very clean, nicely decorated, the bed was comfortable, internet speed is reliable, there are some bowls/plates/utensils to use for meals, it has pretty much everything you need except for a kitchen (only mini fridge, toaster, microwave, coffee maker). But that's okay because the Food Co-op is directly across the street with excellent healthy organic & vegetarian options & fits most of your grocery needs. Though I usually walked to Whole Foods which was an easy 10-minute walk. Also, it was super convenient to walk around Downtown Davis to all of the restaurants and shops which was a lot of fun, it's an exciting little town. It was very close to Unitrans bus and Yolobus stops, not far from the park for the Wed and Sat Farmer's Market, the UC-Davis campus was a short bike or car ride away from the house, and I was able to find a gym nearby as well.
I didn't run into Neil or his family too often during the stay, but when I did they were always incredibly friendly! They were great hosts, offered advice for the Davis area, left a few fruits/snacks in the room for me upon arrival, very quick with communication, checked on me to see how my stay was going, offered clean linens, etc. Spot the dog is the most relaxed and beautiful dog ever, I wanted to take him home with me. I was very happy with my stay here!!! I can't thank them enough!
