Quaint Home in a quiet neighborhood
Let's start off by saying that the owners of this property are very responsive and want your experience at their rental to be enjoyable and care free. Dennis and Dawn met us on the front porch with a wave and a smile. It's three steps up to the porch which has a lovely bench swing and rocking chair. The front door has a numeric punch lock which made it easy for the family to get in and out of the house without worrying about key handoff. As we entered the home, we were met with a nice cool breeze from the air conditioning which they had already turned on for us. We stayed in mid August which can be very warm in Chico. The home is decorated very nice on the inside. You'll feel like you've stepped back to the 1920's - 30's. There are basically three zones for entertaining and spreading out. The back breakfast nook has a TV which only gets local digital channels but there is an HDMI cable so you can watch movies/stream from your laptop. The internet was much faster then I expected; 77 Mb/s download, 6 Mb/s upload. The dining area and front room have plenty of chairs to sit around and socialize. Our three other boys go to school here in Chico and it was nice to have a home base to connect before going out to dinner and visiting late into the evening. Sure beats a hotel room. (The hotels in Chico are not very nice) The bathroom is small and there is only one, but again think 1930's. Don't forget to bring your own shampoo and soap for the shower. The next time we come to Chico I wouldn't hesitate to stay at this property again. It's location to the CSU campus and quiet neighborhood are exactly what we look for. Can't wait to come back and drink our morning coffee on the front porch swing. Happy Travels! Mark
