Wonderful home in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Joyce's home, which she makes your home, is as beautiful as the pictures show. The saltwater pool is amazing, the tennis court is great, firepit is perfect for s'mores roasts, and the lawn and gardens are beautiful. She even puts fresh cut flowers from the garden in your unit. And Joyce herself is great, so friendly and accommodating, and she gives tips about restaurants, etc. Chico is a wonderful city, with the very beautiful Bidwell Park a block away and great for biking, walking, hiking, and taking dips in the creek. Don't miss the Thursday evening farmers market downtown (you can ride your bike through Bidwell Park to get there or drive, it's about 2 miles), there are yummy food trucks, lots of fresh produce, local crafts, bands in the park, and great people watching. There are actually 3 units on the property, a 2 bedroom unit, a 1 bedroom unit, and a studio. Each is large and well appointed and they are not crowded next to each other as the property is large. She gets a lot of repeat business, for good reason. This summer was my first (2 month) stay here, and I am hoping to return next summer.

Great stay by the Park

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this rental. It's very clean and in a quiet neighborhood just a short walk to Bidwell Park. Joyce and Bernie were very friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome. We definitely plan to stay here again.

A wonderful vacation paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying here at Vista Del Monte. We stayed all of July for 31 days and had such a relaxing time surrounded by beautiful flowers and big trees. We loved the pool, tennis court, big lawn area, and Joyce was a very sweet and accomodating host!

I also loved the on site laundry, the quiet neighborhood, and the mini fridge by the pool was so handy! We will definitely be back.

Relaxed and Happy

  • 5 of 5

Took elderly parents and they were more than comfy, swimming with their Grand and Great Grandchildren in the pool and retreated to A/C while we played tennis and bbq'd. The grounds are fenced in with beautifully manicured flower beds and trees galore. Cabana's were nice touch. They went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. Thanks!

Wonderful Outdoor Space

  • 4 of 5

Great stay. Enjoyed the beautiful yard, and spent many hours by the amazing SALTWATER pool. Close to the park, but also close enough to town to enjoy everything you want to see in town.

Best Kept Secret in Chico!

  • 5 of 5

Vista del Monte is Chico’s best kept secret.. We were searching VRBO for a place that could accommodate eight of us for a small family reunion; Vista Del Monte sounded absolutely perfect – and it lived up to its idyllic description. Beautiful, spacious, warm and well furnished, Joyce’s home was our own personal family resort. We made use of the pool, the tennis courts, the fire pit and the expansive lawn during our time together. We even hosted a graduation party there, utilizing her barbeques, comfortable patio sets and a green lawn that goes on forever. Joyce made every resource available to us, from her spice drawers to her pool towels, to ensure that her home became our home for the duration of our stay. She even offered me fresh cut flowers from her exquisite garden. Vista del Monte will always hold a special place in our hearts because of the happy, intimate time our family spent together there. Joyce is a caring proprietor with a generous gift for hospitality.
