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!
Everything went smoothly. Our hosts were terrific, we would stay again.
front and back yard unkempt and full of weeds.
Super cute and clean inside. So much better than a hotel. Enjoyed having coffee in the backyard! Limited parking
Clean, cozy, comfy beds. Beer and snacks provided by host. Only downfall was street parking on a busy street. Otherwise great stay! Would definitely recommend
A delightful old house in a charming neighborhood. We played bauchi ball in the backyard.
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.
This was our second time staying here, and we would absolutely return again! The interior is clean and lovely, communication with the owners is straightforward, and it’s all extremely comfortable. The bicycles are a big plus too. Thank you for having us!
Nice dog friendly yard.
Perfect accommodations for a family of four, in the best part of town. Close to the park, close to downtown and close to great food. Everything we wanted. Highly recommend!
If you are a fan of Chico and came to school here in the 90’s you will truly appreciate the Duffys jukebox and memorabilia. The location to Lower Bidwell park was really nice.
The Chico Bungalow is a lovely little spot for a getaway. The owners have included thoughtful little details that make it a treat. Descriptions and photos are spot on for why you are getting. We had a great time.
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.
The location was great, and we hope to stay there next time we come to Chico. We’re so happy that we found a dog friendly place to stay.
Great communication and service.
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!
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.
Adorable bungalow with everything you need for a comfortable stay!!
We would absolutely return here! The place and property were very clean, sweet, and attractive. The location is amazing and easily walkable into Bidwell Park and downtown, and the bikes were a bonus. Having games and a well stocked kitchen made staying here so fun and memorable. Many thanks to the owners!
We stayed for (4) nights while we dropped our daughter off at CSU. The bungalow was so clean and had everything we needed. Suzanne was very responsive when we had questions. The bungalow is a few blocks from park and easy walk to main street. We will definitely stay here again!
Beautiful property, very clean and comfortable beds! Thank you!
This house was small but had everything we needed for our stay. We appreciated the large yard for our dog. Located close to grocery stores and restaurants. Worked out great for our short visit to Chico.
The Bidwell Park Bungalow was perfect for our stay. The home was very clean and pet-friendly. We look forward to staying here again on our next visit to Chico.
My wife and I stayed here with our two dogs while visiting our daughter. House was cool in a summer heatwave and backyard was great for our dogs. Neighborhood is quiet at night and we slept great. Cleanliness during COVID is important and felt comfortable with the level of cleanliness at the Bungalow. Will stay here next time we are back in Chico.
We loved spending the weekend at this adorable property. It was very clean, well organized, and near all the best Chico has to offer! The bocci ball court in the backyard was an added bonus! Highly recommend :)
The house was immaculate and well stocked. They thought of everything. Fun playing bocce and enjoying the backyard patio. Close to downtown and park. Highly recommend.
very clean, nice house, close to park
We had a wonderful time at this house. Very cute and clean, loved the bocce court.
Loved our stay at the Bidwell Bungalow! Quiet, charming, close to downtown and great backyard patio! Would definitely rebook this gem.
We had a very nice visit in the bungalow!
Very dog friendly with fenced backyard. Great walks to Bidwell Park. Decor was just perfect and cozy.
This bungalow is so cute and had everything we needed for our visit. My family felt right at home. We will be back!!!
This place is perfectly located and has all the amenities needed for a lovely stay. Would definitely stay here again!
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!
Very comfortable and cozy. We stayed there to spend Christmas with the grandkids. It is pet friendly so we could bring our 2 dogs. We will be staying there 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.
Matthew and Suzanne were the perfect mix of letting us know they were available for any questions but otherwise, staying out of sight to let us enjoy our stay. They offered many fun suggestions of local interests.
Clean and comfortable.
We loved the cute bungalow. It was comfortable, clean, convenient and fun. The various pictures and signs in the bungalow with Chico businesses was a very nice touch. We regret we didn't have time to play bocce ball so we will be back again. Thank you so much !
This little house has upscale charm. Everything is new with an attractive style. The bed in the master was so comfy and the pillows were a perfect firmness. The backyard is private and just the right size for a dog to play catch. The location made it easy to find downtown and back to the freeway.
My dog Jake and I had a wonderful stay. The bungalow is beautifully decorated, spanking-clean, and inviting. I plan to stay here again on my next trip!!
Matt and Suzanne were gracious hosts and their bungalow was a delight and perfect for our 4 some. All we needed was here plus lots of goodies we never expected. The house was a perfect size and we truly had a great time. Gary and Julie
We really enjoyed this place. It has a lot of charm to the home. Very close to downtown but still far enough that you have a quiet and relaxing feel. We love the place and would stay here again.
My two teen daughters and I loved our stay in this charming bungalow. It was so central to everything we wanted to see and do in Chico! The house is darling, with beautiful decor, is super clean and so well done. The bocce ball court was a hit with the whole family. The owners were great with communication and appointed the house with absolutely everything we could need to make our stay comfortable and convenient. I highly recommend staying here! We’ll definitely go back again.
