About Kelly Hock

I love my family, I love my town and I love life! I love to help people yet give them space. I enjoy coffee and a good book. My family and I live in the main house so you can get ahold of me for anything you need. I have two boys and two dogs (golden retriever & chocolate lab). All are very friendly to people.

Kelly Hock purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Kelly Hock chose California

I cannot tell you how amazing this property is. It truly is an oasis away from the busy life.

What makes this cottage unique

This house shares a courtyard with the main house (where my family and I live) so anything you need is just a few steps away!

2.5-3 Stars, it will do in a pinch

  • 3 of 5

Pros:

The owners are very nice

Allows Dogs

There is a pool

Lots of Patio seating

Two bedrooms if needed

Cons:

Guest house features sliding glass doors with very thin drapes that face the livingroom of the main house. Those curtains never close, it feels a bit uncomfortable.

The unit only features one uber small TV in the livingroom that doubles as the "kitchen" Mini Fridge, Microwave, Toaster Oven.

There is no grass for dogs, just clover ground cover and concrete. If it was Summer dogs would burn their paws.

They charge 50 for pets and 50 for cleaning, but expect you to strip the beds and take out the garbage.

So overall impression it will do in a pinch (we needed a place very last minute) but would not want to stay more then a day.Ends up costing more then other places, and you get a lot less.

Owner's Response: We feel it necessary to reply to this comment as it is the first low rating we have received. We take the comments very seriously from people that stay with us. We have been thinking about replacing the TV so now we have confirmed that we will do so. The "kitchen" is not a true kitchen and we do explain that well in the description yet understand your frustration as it is small... we do not see it necessary to alter that at this point but we appreciate your review. The curtains are not black out curtains but they are in no way see through. We desire our guests to have privacy so we have ensured they are not see through. After hearing your review about pets we are seriously considering no longer allowing pets it is a huge cleaning process for us after a pet visits and if the cost is such a burden then not allowing pets might be best. We have two dogs of our own and they love the courtyard and in the several years we have lived here their paws have been completely unharmed. Lastly about the check out process ... we will consider your frustration on this as well but at this point we find this not a problem with all other guests. Thank you again for your review and we will thoughtfully consider all of your thoughts! It was wonderful to meet you and your pets!

My son and I had a wonderful stay in Chico. Our hosts, Matt and Kelly, were very accommodating and nice. I would definitely stay here again.

Nice place to stay

  • 5 of 5

I was in Chico for one night. There were five of us staying, and the space was perfect! One bedroom had a king bed, which my friend and her daughter stayed in. The other had a queen bed, which my daughter and I slept in. There's a living space separating the two rooms and had a pull-out couch, which my son slept on. All of the beds were extremely comfortable! We enjoyed a good night's rest after driving for about ten hours. My friend had to check out for me in the morning because my son and I had to go to orientation for school, and my friend said everything was smooth and easy. We didn't get to enjoy the other amenities because our time there was very limited, but this is a great place to stay if you want comfortable beds and plenty of space.

Clean, quiet and just what we needed

  • 4 of 5

For just about the same price as a hotel, our family of three stayed in this Spanish Oasis and our daughter had her own bedroom! It was clean and quiet and easy to find. My daughter loved the pool and the hot tub. The courtyard is beautiful. We felt welcomed by their family, we would definitely stay here again.

Perfect quiet getaway just south of Chico

  • 5 of 5

The unit is in a gorgeous, peaceful courtyard opposite the owners home. Kelly and Matt are wonderful and took very good care of us while we were there. We sat by the fire and watched the sunset, walked along the canal out back, and relaxed in the courtyard. It is clean, comfortable, very well managed, and minutes to downtown. It is dog friendly, and the location made our stay easy with the access to the canal trail out back. I am recommending this Oasis to friends and family.
