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 Gold Country & High Sierra

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.

Great house, beautiful yard, close to town!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation at Casa De Olivia! The house is perfect for families - safe, spacious, well maintained and well stocked. The owners are very nice and helpful. It's a very close and nice walk to town. Overall a great trip and if we ever are back in that area we would definitely stay here again!

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

Lovely home and property

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa De Olivia and would definitely come back in the future. It was a lovely home and property perfect for a Nevada City get away. Close to downtown and to the river which couldn't have been better. Stephanie the property manager was very responsive when we had any questions and the house was fully equipped for all of our needs. I would recommend the home to anyone :)

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the glowing review. I notice your review was only 4 stars. We would really like to know why so we can fix anything that was amiss! We hope to see you again in the near future.

Casa de Olivia is a fantastic property!

  • 5 of 5

We came to the area for a family reunion. This was a perfect place to host a family get together. Plenty of space in the middle of town, but up a quiet street. This was by far the best stocked vacation home we have ever stayed at. I truly appreciated all the extra items we were allowed to use. We would definitely stay here again!

The Bay Area


  • 4 of 5

spent 4 nights in early June. home is located in a quiet neighborhood with only 5 homes or so on a court like street. yard was very spacious and fenced for our dog. easy walking distance to downtown with numerous shops and restaurants. You have to try the ice cream at Treats, Blue Moon Café, Bistro 221 and Three Folks Bakery and Brewery. Overall the home was serviceable, but needed a couple of fix ups. The front door is difficult to close/lock and the recliner in the living room is stuck in the recline position. For the area this home was decent.

Owner's Response: Hi John, Thank you for the feedback and so sorry about the chair and the front door. We have fixed both! To be honest, when we are there we only go out the back and the living room doors so it was good to find out about this. Hope to see you again soon. Maya
