About Sam Boyd
I am university professor, humanitarian, avid traveler, and explorer. I have used VRBO and AirBnB for years around the world. I love to meet my guests and share with them a story, meal, or coffee and have made some wonderful friendships with my former guests. Many of them are University professionals and visit regularly.
Sam Boyd purchased this House in 2006
Why Sam Boyd chose Davis
Because I am sure that you will love it! This apartment is an excellent value, compared to the $150 (plus tax, coffeemaker not included) standard hotel room in Davis. You and your pet (must have at least 2 legs:) will enjoy all the comforts of home whether you just pass through Davis or plan to stay for months. This apartment is also listed on AirBnB:

Sam was wonderful. He was very welcoming. I would absolutely stay here again.
This guest house is located in an upscale Davis neighborhood, with easy access to Interstate 80.
The surrounding area is very walkable with a park and trail nearby. The unit has many amenities, just be sure to bring your own bar soap, tissues and paper towels if needed. Bath towels provided were super fluffy and absorbent.
Weather can affect the best laid plans
Last minute, one night stay entire to son’s house for Christmas. We were traveling with a small utility trailer and concerned about parking.
We had planned to leave our house at 8 am for the 7 hour drive, but awoke to black ice and snow. We delayed our departure 2 hours and then took an alternate route to avoid the snow (adding another 2 hours). We didn’t get to our rental till 10 pm, but we’re able to find it in the dark, safely park our vehicle and put our exhausted selves to bed.
About midday we advised the owner about our weather problem and projected late arrival — he assured us it was fine and to take our time. Good communication!
Cozy & great location!
The location was awesome being in a very nice & safe neighborhood while being so close to downtown Davis & even Sacramento. It was great that we had our own patio & there was enough privacy. The unit had ample room & we used the air conditioning but nothing else since we wanted to explore the city.
We removed a star, which we think is still being generous, since there was poor lighting inside the unit by the entry way & the lamps by the bed weren’t working. Also, the pillows were way too soft that it didn’t have support so we woke up with neck aches. The bathroom was newly renovated & clean overall but there was an old bar of soap with a hair on it.
Overall, still a great stay!
Nice Clean Place
We enjoyed all the succulents around the property, as well as the washer and dryer.
Terrific guests, clean and easy to communicate with ! I will be happy to host them again , no concerns !!
