  • Perfect everything!

    "We have rented vacation homes with family for over two decades. This by far was one of the absolute best! The house is really amazing! Even better than the pictures! A wonderful layout leaving you feeling so private with, stunning views. Whether or not you are a water person, this house is perfect. Even if you want to sit in the house for a week and never go out, it’s so comfy, and has everything. Both the kitchen and bar have all the dishes and cooking items you’ll ever need. Great high-end appliances. The HUGE wrap around decking, (which is so big its, like a yard it self), it is fabulous. Lots of wonderful seating areas on the deck areas as well. The house is seconds away from the fast water. (with some homes, you have to idol for ages until you can go over 5mph.) Heavenly sunrise ski rides every morning was the best! The house had such an open feeling with huge, high ceilings, and lots of light. The air conditioning, and all appliances worked perfectly. There were lots of extra pillows and blankets as well. Ending our day by the outside fireplace, making S’Mores was a blast. The heated pool, and jacuzzi was really gorgeous, and unique, with the beach like access gradually stepping into the pool. The outdoor kitchen made BBQ-ing so much fun! We are coming back for sure, and have no reason to look for any other house. Thank you so much Lynne!! You were wonderful!"

  • Difficulty in making timely plan

    "I overpaid for this property because it was one of just a few venues available for UC Davis graduation weekend. The problem was not with the house but with the management- The contract came in with the wrong dates, the address was never included in the contract and the owner was weeks if not months getting back to me after my initial inquiry months and months ago. That being said, the only problems with the house itself was, no BBQ when we arrived and the first night we had planned a family BBQ and secondly, a smoke alarm that constantly beeped from the locked owner's loft. When I contacted the owner, she said that it would be taken care of- what we got was a new battery left in the kitchen by the housekeeper and the beeping continued throughout our stay. Finally, when I asked when I could expect my security deposit to be returned (we left the place cleaner than we found it (although it was in reasonably good shape) I have yet to get a response."

  • Perfect Home Away from Home

    "My husband and I rented this house for a week while visiting family and sightseeing. We had my mom and aunt traveling with us and the house was perfect for the four of us. The house is set up with the master bedroom on one side of the living area and two bedrooms on the other side. The two bedrooms are at each end of a hallway with a bathroom and laundry room in between. This arrangment gave each of us plenty of privacy. The neighborhood is lovely and quiet, very convenient to downtown and other amenities, and the greenbelt is accessible at the end of the street. The living area is larger than it looks in the pictures, comfortably furnished, and we had plenty of room to spread out. The backyard is lovely and the master bedroom has a private enclosed patio as well. The kitchen is fully equipped and has a large island with plenty of space for preparing food. Valerie was wonderful to work with, very responsive, and made sure we had everything we needed. We loved our stay here and would definitely return. We recommend the Farmer's Market, the arboretum on the UC-Davis campus, the Artery (artists coop downtown), and the following restaurants: Seasons, Burgers and Brew, and Cafe Bernardo for breakfast."

  • Just what we were looking for

    "We were looking for a quiet place with plenty of room for our visit to the Sequoias and this place worked great. The kids loved being able to stay on a farm and had a blast playing hide-n-seek in all the rooms. They also provided plenty of food for breakfast and lots of farm fresh fruit. We felt very comfortable having our kids there, which is always a big deal for us. It is good to know that this is an old farmhouse and although they have kept it up nicely, it will have its own farmhouse charms. It feels a lot like staying at your grandma's house, which we liked. But if you are looking for something more modern and with less quirks, you might be disappointed. Our last night there, there was also a wedding on the property which was definitely inconvenient, but the owner was great at stepping up and making things right. The house is a reasonable distance between Kings Canyons and Sequoias making it easy to get to both, but the large trees are actually about an hour+ drive away from the entrance, so it isn't as close as staying in the park itself."

Central Valley Travel Tips

Vacation in Style in California Central Valley Vacation Rentals

A large number of California central valley vacation rentals are located in the delta area. This encompasses the communities of Bethal Island, Discovery Bay, Loche, Rio Vista, and Walnut Grove. The main attraction here is boating. Many of the vacation homes are located close to fast water areas so if you have a power boat or jet ski this is where you want to be. The views over the water are magnificent. If your rental home has a waterfront deck, as many of them do, you can spend the evenings out there watching the sunset and enjoying a barbecue while waiting for the stars to come out. The central valley has a peaceful unrushed vibe about it and many of the vacation homes are located in beautiful settings, either on the waterfront or in scenic valleys. It's the perfect destination to escape the bustle of busy city life and take some time to relax and rejuvenate the soul.

Visitors to California Central Valley Waterfront Rentals

The central valley in California is a great place to take the family for a summer vacation, especially if you enjoy fishing, boating and other watersports. The delta area is particularly popular and many of the vacation homes are spacious enough to accommodate an extended family or group of friends. When not out on the water, you can explore some of the small communities, enjoy some wine tasting and stop in at the local markets to collect some fresh produce. It's also a great destination for a romantic weekend away or a honeymoon. Quiet and peaceful surroundings and beautiful landscapes provide the perfect setting to relax and enjoy the company of your significant other. Take a stroll along the water's edge or picnic on the lake's shore and make it a memorable vacation.

Best Time of Year to Visit California Central Valley

The northern central valley has a hot Mediterranean climate which means the summers are hot and dry and the winter months are cool and wet. Occasionally, thunderstorms may occur in the Sacramento area in late summer. The area is largely agricultural with the valley producing a phenomenal 25 percent of America's fresh produce. Tourists who visit in the summer and fall seasons can sample some of the fine produce at the many markets and farm stalls. The region is a popular summer destination, although the mountainous areas offer fantastic skiing and winter sports. If you happen to visiting during the rainy season, you can always snuggle up in front of the fireplace and enjoy the views from your window.

What There is to see Near California Central Valley Houses

The region has a rich pioneering history, particularly in the areas around Sacramento. Visit museums and historic sites that share stories of gold mining legends and the early pioneering days. The central valley is also extremely well known for producing award-winning wines. Whether you just enjoy a casual glass of wine or consider yourself to be more of a connoisseur, sampling wines from the various vineyards is a great experience. If you don't want to drive between the different estates, you can join an organized guided tour or even take a train ride through some of the wine districts. The beautiful scenery also lends itself to outdoor explorations. Hiking and mountain bike trails traverse the vast plains and climb up to explore the mountain forests. Horseback riding excursions are also popular and there are a number of historic steam trains that offer day trips to various parts of the central valley.
