Marv's Mini House near UC Davis Med Center

Bedrooms 1
Space 450 sq. ft.
Property type cottage


About the property

This is a lovely guest cottage in a great location! Just a 10 minute drive to downtown and the Capitol and a 10 minute walk to the UC Davis Medical Center. It is located within walking distance to the light rail and is a 5 minute drive to the freeway.

The Space

The Tiny House is located behind our home and is accessed through the main gate to our back yard. It has its own private entrance and is totally separate from our house. We live on the property full time with a very mellow senior dog named Bella. Our property is generally very quiet but during the warm summer months you will frequently find us in the back yard. The tiny house has its own small patio with seating area and access to a propane BBQ.

Here are some details about the Tiny House:

Fully equipped kitchen with brand new cabinets, countertop, range and microwave.

Queen size bed with memory foam mattress

Cotton bed linens

Sleeper sofa in the living room that can accommodate an additional person

Small dining table

French door + windows allow for plenty of natural light

Five-drawer dresser and closet for ample storage

Guest controlled heater and AC


Coffee maker

Complimentary coffee and tea (+cream/sugar)

Iron and ironing board

Full bathroom with shower

100% Cotton Towels

Shampoo, conditioner, soap complimentary

Guest Access

The Tiny House is accessed through the gated entrance at the end of our driveway. You will have your own key code to access the house and can come and go as you please during your stay. Please be respectful of our neighbors.

Interaction with Guests

The level of interaction is determined by our guests. We are usually here to welcome guests and also provide detailed instructions on how to access the house. We are always available via text or email. We love meeting new people and are happy to provide recommendations for local eateries and things to do in the Sacramento area.

The Neighborhood

We are located in the small but quaint neighborhood of Sacramento called Elmhurst. We are within a 10 minute walk to UC Davis Medical Center. A 10 minute walk in the other direction will land you in East Sacramento with great food and coffee shops. Being in such a great central location we are just minutes away from: Great Dining (Sacramento has a wonderful farm to fork movement), Trader Joes, delicious independent coffee shops, great parks, Old Town Historic Sacramento, The Capital, River Cats Baseball (SF Giants minor league team), and great hiking and running trails along the American River.

In addition, you can reach Napa/Sonoma, Marin Headlands, San Francisco, and Lake Tahoe all within a 90 minute drive.

Getting Around

We are located about a 10 minute walk to the nearest light rail station that can take you to many different locations in Sacramento and the surrounding areas. We are also located within a 5 minute drive to Hwy 50/I-80/Hwy 99/I-5. We are a 20 minute drive from Sacramento International Airport.

Marv's Mini House is Marvelous!

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend Marv's Mini! I would stay there again if needed! Location is a bit windy through the streets to get there but well worth it! Quite, quaint neighborhood. The older part of Sacramento that I've always loved. Very clean! Very well organized for convenience and comfort! Easy private access! My friend slept on the couch that is not a fold out but a configuration that is an oversized twin and said it was very comfortable. I liked the private bedroom. 2 BIG thumbs up! The hosts were responsive to texts, very helpful but never saw them.
