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.

Clean & Spacious

  • 3 of 5

The property was very spacious and spotless with a perfect layout for privacy as we were 2 couples. The neighborhood is quiet and central to UC Davis.

The mattresses were old and uncomfortable and the towels smelled moldy.

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
