Guestbook comments from the owner

My folks and their friends had a glorious time in Davis. Your home has proven to be very comfortable option for everyone involved. It might be a little too comfortable as my dad repeatedly said that they should stay for 2 or 3 months next time around.

Great hideaway close to UC Davis

  • 5 of 5

Family members from multiple states were coming to town for our daughter's graduation from UC Davis and Valerie's home was a wonderful option to multiple hotel rooms. The house is approximately two miles from the edge of campus. and very close to Highway 113. The house was spacious and the kitchen contained all necessary utensils There is a very nice greenbelt for walking, just a few blocks away. Given the heat wave of last week, I am very happy to report that the A/C was cold and powerful. We feel foolish to have repeatedly paid for hotels over the past four years, when this home was available. Thank you Valerie.

Very nice

  • 5 of 5

It was perfect for us. FULLY equipt. It has everything. It was really quiet and in a nice neighborhood. Beds were comfortable.

Our daughter graduated from Davis and we had a small dinner party and used the BBQ.

The owners are great and had instructions on how to use everything.

Thank you

Great place to stay in Davis CA

  • 5 of 5

Our recent stay was the third time we have rented this home. We have been quite happy each time to have such nice home away from home when visiting family. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything we needed to prepare meals. The house is clean and very comfortable, with a nice backyard patio and gas grill (which was in need of a cleaning this time). The location is perfect, near the downtown by car or on foot. We consider this our Davis "home base" and plan to return on our next visit.

Perfect place for our family

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at Valerie's home in Davis. It was perfect for our family, with two small children. The house was immaculate - clean and tidy - and the kitchen was better stocked than my own! The location was perfect too, with easy walking access to the green belt (where there were many playgrounds to discover). The neighbourhood was quiet and an easy drive or walk to the University campus. Valerie was really quick to respond to any queries. If our travels take us to Davis again, we will definitely be looking for this house again.
