Nevada City Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Enjoy a taste of the Islands in a cozy 'Ohana House located in Nevada City. The private studio apartment is situated in a separate building and beautifully appointed with island-style flair.

Conveniently located near town and walking trails the apartment features vaulted ceilings, a comfortable queen-sized bed, satellite TV, a DVD player, wi-fi, and selection of books and board games for your enjoyment. The 'Ohana House also has an outside seating area where you can enjoy a meal or a morning beverage and is an ideal spot for bird-watching.

From the front door you'll find a quiet country road, curving its way through a forest of pine and oak, with access to lovely walking trails and Hirschman's Pond nearby. Downtown Nevada City is just one mile away.

Nevada City and Grass Valley

These two historic gold mining towns situated just 4 miles apart offer a multitude of activities including shopping, art galleries, museums, great restaurants, world-class music and live theater. In winter take a one hour drive to Tahoe and enjoy a day of snow play with down-hill and cross-country skiing, snow boarding, snow shoeing, tubing, and sledding.

In summer, access to the stunning Yuba River is a 10 minute drive where you can hike well-maintained trails and find that perfect swimming hole or waterfall to spend the afternoon. If you are feeling adventurous, ask me about the 'secret' Yuba River spots!

Choose from a number of near-by lakes for a day of fishing, picnicking, swimming, kayaking or boating. Lake Tahoe is one hour by car – ask about the 'back road' drive for spectacular views and scenery. Or head west along scenic Highway 49 into the Sierra high country and discover a string of historic mining towns, each with their own charm.

I am here to make your stay a memorable one so let me know if you have any special requests. Need a recommendation for a great restaurant, the best fishing, biking or hiking spots, or the latest town news? Just ask!

About Amy

I've stayed at Vacation Rentals around the world, I always appreciate it when they feel like home, where I can completely settle in and relax - but I also love luxury hotel amenities and furnishings. Here at the 'Ohana studio in Nevada City, you have the best of both for a completely romantic vacation get-away topped off with a taste of the islands!

Happy Trails!

Amy purchased this studio in 2005

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for the use of this wonderful studio! So peaceful and light. The high quality of everything was really appreciated. Our friends gave out these macadamia bars from Hawai'i at their wedding - hope you enjoy them -

Perfect Nevada City getaway

  • 5 of 5

I try to visit Nevada City at least once every summer and have tried a variety of apartments and motels. This is my favorite because of its perfect combination of comfort, privacy, and great value. The studio is ingeniously laid out to create a spacious-feeling getaway with everything you need to feel at home: a large sunny bathroom with lovely tile work; cozy sleeping nook with a comfortable queen size bed; easy living area with books and TV, perfect breakfast table for two, and well-outfitted kitchen with full size stovetop, refrigerator, and sink area. The property is tucked into the woods, within a few minutes' drive to both town and the local swimming holes. Amy is a wonderful hostess who creates a feeling of complete privacy for her guests while being accessible if need be. Everything's always clean, neat, and perfectly functional, every visit.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

I had an extended stay at Amy's place. (30 days), so I was able to utilize all of the amenities that were available.

Everything a personal needs, cooking utensils, washer, wifi, netflix, air conditioning were available and functioned flawlessly.

The furniture including bed was comfortable.

It is a pleasant walk to town, approximately 1.5 miles.

A very clean, quiet place to stay. Highly recommended.

Woodsy and Quiet, good trails

I enjoyed the hills trees and most of all the peaceful atmosphere. I used my smart phone less, and slept hard at night.

25th Anniversary Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Visiting from our own popular tourist town in Sonoma County, it was fun being the tourists for a change; we met very warm and open locals--thank you, Nevada City! We very much enjoyed our 4 night stay. The house had everything we needed: a kitchen for breakfast and dinners; AC (which worked very well during a heat wave); and a nice quite location just outside of town (less than a 3 minute drive). Lastly, our hosts were very accomodating, and Amy's recommendations were spot on...thank you...we'll be back!
