About Joyce Mikkelson

I have been working for the Center for International Trade at the college in Chico for the past 17 years. I grew up in Manhattan Beach California. I enjoy theater, the arts, Soroptimists, and the guests I have had visit the house in the last 3 years

Joyce Mikkelson purchased this house in 1990

Why Joyce Mikkelson chose Shasta Cascade

This 1/4 acre property has a large grass areas a patio with BBQ. You can go swimming in the creek about 2 blocks from the house. There is a fire pit, and a large grass area to play ball. It feels like a resort with the gardens and cut flowers in the suites. I have lived in Chico for 32 years and feel this community is very special. People are friendly and the town is very active and sporty. There are bike paths, streams, fishing close by.

What makes this house unique

The house has a chef kitchen, open floor plan, a large backyard with Redwoods, Oaks and Cherry trees. It is in a safe cup-de-sac and only 1 block from the park.

Perfect Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our family during our trip to Chico. It is exactly as described, with comfortable furnishings and all the modern conveniences one would want. It is in a quiet and well kept neighborhood in a convenient part of town. I definitely recommend this home, and you will find Joyce to be very easy to work with.

Wonderful place to relax!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Chico at Joyce's beautiful home. Plenty of room to enjoy a peaceful stay with my wife and 99 year old mother. Caught the fall colors and still had Summer flowers all around the home. We will be back next spring! Thank you Joyce for all your hospitality and kindness.

Wonderful house!

  • 5 of 5

The owner Joyce is very nice person. She knows my relatives are far from China to visit me, and she offers many tea bags for them. The house is very spacious and neat. My family members are very satisfied with everything in the house!
