About Mike Farrace
My name is Mike Farrace. I was born in Berkeley, raised down the river in Antioch and have lived Sacramento since 1971. I worked at Tower Records for over 25 wonderful years. I traveled all over the world and collected many great music artifacts wherever I went, and I display a selection of these items in my VRBO dwellings. My full-time job now is selling music art and photography. I've discovered that I enjoy hosting travelers very much. I like learning and improving too, so please, do not hesitate to comment or ask questions. I will respond promptly and enthusiastically. I want to be a great host and will make sure you are happy and satisfied.
Why Mike Farrace chose Arden-Arcade
I purchased this property in 1997 mainly because my older son was nearing high-school age and there is a great public high school in this district, Rio Americano. This was before open enrollment. But I also really loved this particular property. The lot is almost a half-acre with many huge oak trees, a creek and all kinds of visual interest. It feels like you're in the forest even though you are right in the middle of town. The house itself also has a cool pedigree. Across the street is Arden Park, a very beautiful neighborhood that was once comprised of 8 acre 'ranchettes.' In the '50s, the neighborhood converted to smaller-lot residential zoning and the ranchettes were sold to developers. A neighbor of mine who was one of those developers told me there was one lot left and this was the house left on it. Real estate salespeople used it for a sales office as they sold the homes. As the lots sold out in around 1960, the house was purchased by the owners before me and moved to this location. It is a pretty big place for one person with no kids around anymore. I recently moved out of the large house into a cottage at the back of the property and opened an office for my business. I decided to offer the larger house as a Sacramento short term rental property. I love this house and you will too!
What makes this house unique
It occurs to me frequently that my place never looked this good when I actually lived in it. The reason? Thanks to Liz my amazing housekeeper, you will find the place spotless with minimal clutter! Conclusion -- it is not only better than a hotel, it's better than staying in your own house, at least temporarily!
