About Kami & Gordon Smith

Hi! We're the Smiths and we welcome you to stay with us in beautiful Chico and at my childhood dream house. We moved to Chico from Napa, CA to live in this beautiful historic Chico home which was once owned by a local senator. I grew up in this wonderful town and left to marry and start a family, but Chico is the kind of town that always pulls you back to it. It's a wonderful place that provides beautiful seasons, amazing people that make a fabulous community and a town that is always vibrant and alive.

Kami & Gordon Smith purchased this studio in 2007

Why Kami & Gordon Smith chose Chico

We chose to offer our guest house at a rental because it is such a beautiful little unit that is rarely used by our personal guests. We also thought it would be a great opportunity to create a slush fund for extra activities we enjoy.

What makes this studio unique

One of the main reasons why we love this property is because of it's size and location. The home & guest house sit on 1.7 acres and is very private. We have beautiful Bidwell park right across the street which provides a wealth of activities for our family and we are close to downtown and shopping. We love riding our bikes to the downtown farmers markets and virtually anywhere around town. It's been a blessing to live here.

Cozy apartment at the top of the detached garage provides privacy w/ Bidwell Park across the street

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this cozy apartment with my 84 year old mother and her friend. Though there were stairs to climb into the apartment above the detached garage, there was a fine hand railing. We loved the old fashioned kitchen (no dishwasher) and bathroom and the bedroom/living area was spacious. The trees in the yard are arboretum quality and Bidwell Park across the street made for a tremendous setting. There is freeway noise, but it really did not bother us and I opened windows for fresh air. I would recommend this rental to friends and family.

Chico stay

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Chico and enjoyed staying in the unit. The kitchen was inviting and fully stocked with the items we needed.. Just gazing out all the windows at the spring weather and the beautiful gardens was a pleasure. We were busy all week but still had time to walk across the street to Bidwell Park for an enjoyable walks. The owners were accommodating and gave us plenty of privacy.. The only drawback was freeway noise from the kitchen and the bath. Once in the living /sleeping area the noise was not a problem. Once the sound wall on the freeway is completed the property should be rated excellent .. We would definitely recommend the unit..

My 18-year-old daughter and I stayed here while visiting Chico State. We had a wonderful stay.

Clean place, comfortable bed, historical neighborhood feel, close to everything. Kami

was delightful and helpful. We rented bikes, ate great food, explored the campus, city and nature

trails. Wish we could have stayed longer. We use vacation rentals every time we travel and this

is the best bargain out there!

Old fashioned charm, modern comfort.

  • 5 of 5

We only stayed two nights but wished we had more time. Very sunny, cheery and clean. A couple of reviews mention freeway noise but we found that to be hardly noticeable. We slept well in the very comfortable bed. Great location - across Bidwell park and easy walk downtown for Thursday Street Fair and Saturday Farmers Market. Don't miss a tour and dining at Sierra Nevada Brewing.

comfortable and convenient

  • 5 of 5

I really liked this studio. The furniture and beds were comfortable and the kitchen was very handy and cute. It was awesome being able to walk across the street into the park. It is a fantastic location and we had privacy from the main house. The only drawback was the freeway noise but I would defintely stay here again.

The best place to rent in Chico, by far!!!

  • 5 of 5

I have so many great things to say about our experience but don't know where to start. Everything was perfect from beginning to end!!! From contacting Cami, to her accomodating all of my requests , to her being one the nicest people I have done business with in a long time!!! Although this unit is on the same property of the residence, you would hardly know it. Very quiet, peaceful and relaxing.

I highly recommend...especially for parents of Chico State students coming for the weekend. Much better than any hotel you can find in town. Thanks again for being so awesome!!!!
