Wonderful Rental Propert

  • 5 of 5

As a traveling physical therapist, this was the perfect home to accommodate my needs for a short term rental. The apartment is fully furnished and well maintained and I enjoyed an entire summer by the pool :) The tennis courts were a bonus when the weather wasn't too hot, and I loved exploring the park nearby.

Great Host and a Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

Joyce is a lovely host, she is so accommodating and easy to work with. She works hard to keep her property in order for her guests and it shows. Our favorite part of our stay here was lounging by the gardens and playing tennis in the tennis courts. We also enjoyed a dip in the pool on a warm day - needless to say this house is great for the sporty or outdoorsy! We will definitely be returning in the future.

Wonderful home in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Joyce's home, which she makes your home, is as beautiful as the pictures show. The saltwater pool is amazing, the tennis court is great, firepit is perfect for s'mores roasts, and the lawn and gardens are beautiful. She even puts fresh cut flowers from the garden in your unit. And Joyce herself is great, so friendly and accommodating, and she gives tips about restaurants, etc. Chico is a wonderful city, with the very beautiful Bidwell Park a block away and great for biking, walking, hiking, and taking dips in the creek. Don't miss the Thursday evening farmers market downtown (you can ride your bike through Bidwell Park to get there or drive, it's about 2 miles), there are yummy food trucks, lots of fresh produce, local crafts, bands in the park, and great people watching. There are actually 3 units on the property, a 2 bedroom unit, a 1 bedroom unit, and a studio. Each is large and well appointed and they are not crowded next to each other as the property is large. She gets a lot of repeat business, for good reason. This summer was my first (2 month) stay here, and I am hoping to return next summer.

Great stay by the Park

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this rental. It's very clean and in a quiet neighborhood just a short walk to Bidwell Park. Joyce and Bernie were very friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome. We definitely plan to stay here again.
