About Joyce Mikkelson

I have been working for the Center for International Trade at Los Rios College in Chico for the past 22 years. I grew up in Manhattan Beach California. I enjoy Live Theater, the Arts, Soroptimist Club, and Traveling. The returning guests I have had rent the house every year love the location, safety, all the amentities and so close to the park for walks.

Joyce Mikkelson purchased this house in 1990

Why Joyce Mikkelson chose Chico

This 1/4 acre property has large grass areas with a patio table and a BBQ. You can go swimming in the creek about 2 blocks from the house. There is a fire , and a large grass area to play ball. It feels like a resort with the gardens and cut flowers. 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 cul-de-sac and only 2 blocks from the park.

Gorgeous Home - Great for Entertaining

  • 5 of 5

We rented this great home from Joyce for a family gathering. She made sure we had everything we needed upon arrival and encouraged us to take full advantage of the home's amenities. We had a large family dinner here in the beautiful backyard and it was a wonderful time, enjoyed by all. Definitely recommend this rental and we look froward to renting from Joyce again in the future.
