Welcome Home at Casa De Olivia in Downtown Nevada City

Bedrooms 4
Property type house
Minimum Stay 5 nights


About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9 w/couch)

Our Sweet Retreat is a vacation rental nestled in the historic Gold Country of the Sierra Nevada Foothills and is walking distance from downtown Nevada City. Come and relax under the tall pines in the beautiful garden of our charming Victorian.

Downtown Nevada City is a short walking distance away along beautifully maple, cedar, oak lined streets. While in town you can enjoy a variety of fine dining, wine tasting, galleries, shopping, live music, cafes, farmers market or a show at the local theatre.

We are driving distance to the Yuba River as well as several lakes including Scotts Flat Lake and Lake Tahoe. You may also consider a short drive to the Independence Trail where you will walk amongst redwoods, waterfalls and old wooden aqueducts used for mining. An hour drive will land you in Tahoe where you can enjoy downhill or cross country skiing during the winter months.

Enjoy all that this area has to offer whether it is hiking, biking, skiing or simply taking a slow stroll through town.

About Maya

I am the daughter of the actual owners, obviously my parents, and we bought the place in 2005 for our personal use. In 2008, when the markets crashed, we turned to vrbo so that we could keep the property in our family. Thanks to all of you who rented it over the last decade we are able to continue to enjoy this place year after year.

Maya purchased this house in 2005

Why Maya chose Nevada City

We bought this property because it offered our whole family the best of what we all enjoyed. It was close enough to the snow for me, but my parents would never need to put on chains to enjoy their house. Also, the walk-ability made us all happy. And the combination of art, good food, local brew and wine, couldn't be beat.

Fantastic family home in Nevada City

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed Casa de Olivia very much. It has a great layout, is tastefully appointed and has plenty of room for the kids to play. The secure yard is a plus as well. We plan on returning again and again.

It would have been a wonderful stay - I will book again

  • 5 of 5

Unfortunately we had to cancel our trip at the last minute because of fires in the area that caused our great-niece's wedding plans to be cancelled at the nearby venue. The owners of Casa De Olivia were very understanding of our situation and helpful in providing updates of area conditions. Based on this alone, we would recommend Casa De Olivia and we will definitely book again if we have the opportunity to visit the area!

Thank you again Maya!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind review, even though you didn't get to stay with us. I was glad to hear that your niece was able to have her wedding despite the circumstances.

Fantastic family home in town.

  • 5 of 5

This is our fourth year coming to Casa Olivia with our 3 generation generation family. We love being here. The house runs perfectly and the grounds are beautiful. Being within walking distance to town is so convenient. The local house managers are responsive and always willing to go the extra mile for us. We'll be back.

Owner's Response: Thanks Joanie. The neighbors/property managers haven't gone anywhere but we, the owners, are going to start using and running the house more ourselves. I hope we can also make your stays fantastic and thank you again for the kind review! Maya
