Simply the best!
This place was a gem of a spot to call our own for a couple of days. The place is super cute, clean and stocked full of great amenities and snacks and goodies. Better than that, Kathy is a super-host like none other! She made sure that we felt super welcomed upon arrival and supplied us with great maps and information about town and all of the local happenings and places to check out. Kathy was very available via email and phone and was able to check in with us in person even upon our request to ask her a couple of questions. I told Kathy that I wish every host and listing was this great, and I mean it! Highly recommended, we would stay here again when in town...enojy!
Thank you so much, Dan! So great to meet you. Happy traveling!
We had a great experience here. The bungalow is so thoughtfully decorated and equipped for an immersive Nevada City experience. Kathy has a binder with all sorts of recommendations. We went on a trail run that was a short walk from the bungalow, and loved it! She also had some of our favorite craft beer waiting for us. We highly recommend staying here!
Clean, cute, quiet, and the perfect getaway spot.
We had a great time in Nevada City celebrating our anniversary. Kathi's cottage was perfect. I would highly recommend it. We'll be back again for sure.
This was the perfect place to stay during our wedding weekend! Kathy was a fantastic host, and the bungalow is adorable. My husband and I will always remember our stay here, and will hopefully be back soon!
This little cottage is clean, quiet, comfortable and just a short walk to all the Nevada City action. Kathy, the owner, was fabulous to work with. There are a few details that renters should be aware of, however. The place is small. Tall or large people might not find it is comfortable as my husband and I did. The sitting area has one chair so if you’re inclined to watch tv one person must sit on the bed. The kitchen worked well for us even though there is no garbage disposal, microwave or dishwasher. We also rediscovered yummy French Press coffee, as that is the coffee maker provided. We took full advantage of the patio, with the little creek running by, and used the outdoor grill daily. The bathroom is small but the shower was better than expected. We would rent this little charmer again as it is well worth the price in an unbeatable location.
This bungalow is a wonderful place to stay while visiting the area. I have stayed here before and will stay again when in the area. As a matter of fact, I stayed at a different house last time I was in the area for work and was very unsatisfied. Now I plan my work trips to the area around when this unit is available. Kathy is the most wonderful host, leaves you goodies in the refrigerator and on the counter. The bungalow is clean, has everything one could need to cook your own meals, even has a BBQ available for use. It is close to town, has many activities close. I will be renting this unit again.
