    We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful home. It was just perfect for our family as we were visiting my daughter who is living in chico. It was so comfortable and was like a home away from home. This is our second time staying there and it won’t be our last!

    I enjoyed my 3 night stay at the cottage. The location is fantastic and very close to Bidwell park, downtown and the state college. My only disappointment was that the backyard was overgrown with weeds and not well cared for.

    Very comfortable old home. Only two knocks: the yard could use a little work and sheets on the bed seemed a bit well, not new and crisp. Beverages and snacks were welcome and especially coffee. This is a 100 year old bungalow so some “rough around the edges” or “less than perfect” is not surprising. Overall, this was a really comfy place that I settled into like a favorite pair of jeans. Recommended.

    Its the cutest little place. we enjoyed staying there very much. Very clean, everything you need, comfortable beds, love the decor. The street parking was a little concerning but it worked out fine. We could not get the heat to work but we knew it would be a problem ahead of time and brought our own heater and the house had a couple of space heaters we used. We probably could have contacted the owners and got it figured out but didnt think it was a big deal.

    It was a cute place, and a great stay.

    This is a beautifully remodeled older home. We appreciated the opportunity to bring our small dogs, and had some great walks in Bidwell Park just a couple blocks away. As mentioned in other reviews, we also had some difficulties with the heaters, but it did not impact our stay and we will be looking to rent this property again next year. Well stocked with essentials, great patio area, and VERY clean. Thank you to the hosts for an exceptional stay!

    Comfortable Cottage

    In this time of COVID, we traveled 4+ hours to Chico so my daughter could take the SAT, and this cottage was just the right size for my family of 3. It is located on a super busy one-way street, and parking is on-street, so take caution going to and from the car with kids and dogs. The owner's were responsive and helpful, but the heating system just isn't efficient, so we wore our jackets and bundled up while inside. Otherwise, it was clean and comfortable, and the games and provisions plentiful.

    The bungalow was very nice. It was clean and comfortable. Parking was on street which wasn't expected. Would have been nice to have known that upfront. Neighborhood seemed safe but not necessarily real nice but in our driving around, we didn't really see any areas that were any nicer. I would recommend this home, it fit our needs.

    Unfortunately I was not able to stay at the house because the owners needed it in connection with awildfire evacuation. That said, they communicated with me promptly and ensured that I received a full refund. I hope to be able to stay at the property sometime soon. Most important, I hope the owners are safe and sound.

    My husband and I and our two Bichon Frises rented this beautiful bungalow in Chico for a short visit to relatives in Magalia. The location was perfect for us as the dogs love to go for walks at Bidwell Park and it is a short walk/drive to downtown Chico for several good restaurants! We ate breakfast at “Mom’s” and loved it! The house had everything we needed for our short stay - we will have to stay longer the next time we visit! The house has been completed remodeled it appeared and well furnished (looked like an IKEA catalog)! It was clean, comfortable and cozy! The only minor drawback is the house is located on a busy street with no driveway or garage. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again!

    My husband, teenage son, and I stayed here with our three dogs the weekend after Thanksgiving. We actually celebrated a late Thanksgiving at the house with some friends. The house we clean and had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. We also appreciated that there were stores and restaurants very close by, all located in a lovely neighborhood with a park close by. We hope we can stay here again when the weather is warmer, and when we have time to explore the area more.
