East Sacramento House Rental Photos and Description

4/5 Bedroom, 2 bathroom family home close to capitol

This home away from home is an oasis for the traveller that is passing through the capitol region or staying over an extended contract or holiday while commuting through the area. The home offers two spacious rooms with queen size beds and two smaller children/teen size rooms with single beds. The home has a pull out coach in the living room, a dinning room table that seats 6 to 8 in a cozy setting. The house has a gas stove and double oven that is adequate for quick cooking meals such as breakfast, lunch and dinner. The bathrooms both offer a stand up shower while one offers a tub. The backyard boasts over 20 fruit trees including grapefruit, limes, oranges, pears, and others as the season permits. The home was rebuilt in the late 1950's in a neighborhood of eclectic homes. As East Sacramento is a trend setting area, you will hear the light hum of the highway in the background at the same time as chickens clucking next door while you drink your cafe on the back patio. The home is best used for a touch base place space or place to relax between site seeing trips or office meetings. The master bedroom that has a crib and a loft bed is also available for an additional fee and deposit. Lastly, we are open to hosting rehearsal dinners for weddings or other occasions. Please ask about our visual and performing artists as well as military and veteran's family discounts.

About Dr. Sherilene M. Chycoski

While receiving my Doctorate in Educational leadership from the University of Southern California (Fight on Trojans!!) and working as a visual and performing arts administrator in the local school district, my husband and I purchased our home in Sacramento. We have been living at the house over the past several years while I work on contracts with the arts and school programs. My husband who was retired and an internationally known trumpet player enjoyed the local shops and restaurants while I was working working at the local schools with students and teachers. Our home in Sacramento has since assisted me with raising our three children and our new addition. At this time, we are currently working on contracts outside of the country and we have decided to list our second 'home away from home' on this website.

Dr. Sherilene M. Chycoski purchased this house in 2004

Why Dr. Sherilene M. Chycoski chose Sacramento

We purchased this property as it has a fantastic central location which is close to all our activities which include the Community Center Theatre, Wells Fargo Pavillion, Capitol Building, Sacramento Ballet, Sacramento Philharmonic Orchestra, Crocker Art Museum, Cal State Fair and Cal Expo as well as restaurants, shopping and great places for working in the fabulous 40s.

What makes this house unique

The large backyard with the double lot is what made us fall in love with this property. Who would of thought that you could find over 20 fruit trees in the middle of the city. While our guests and friends stay, we ask them to check and make sure that the sprinklers are working as the summers can get pretty hot in the capitol region.

Spacious home in a nice neighborhood with plenty of shops nearby

  • 5 of 5

When I first parked my car I thought this is a small house. But when I opened the door it was huge! My family loved the home especially the big back yard and fresh fruit from the trees. We had spices and condiments left from previous guests to enjoy as well as a couple of beers and some other snacks. This was the best place I have stayed in North America on any trips I have been on in this continent. The house was a 10 min walk from 3 fast food places a couple of smaller restaurants and more. The grocery store closed at 1 am everyday. The owner was a pleasure to deal with and always available to answer any questions. I will definitely recommend this place to others and stay there for all my future trips to Sacramento.

Great location and comfortable, kid-friendly home!

  • 5 of 5

This home is just lovely. It's actually quite large, on a nicely sized lot with a peaceful backyard. My kids basically existed on the swings. There are also tons of toys for the kids, which we appreciated. We love the cute coffee shop you can easily walk to at the end of the street (a two minute walk) and we like that there is a crib in the master and a changing table. Convenience is key - just minutes from the heart of downtown and tons of restaurants and shops. We've stayed here twice now, and definitely think of it as "our" other home! Can't wait to be back. =)

A work week in a cool part of Sacramento

  • 4 of 5

The Urban Country Setting house was perfect for what our work group needed. The proximity to downtown was pretty good. Great quiet neighborhood with lots of nice retail near by. House was spacious and clean.

Great house for the family

  • 4 of 5

We spent the weekend in Sacramento and this was the perfect house for my family - 4 adults and 1 toddler. There were a lot of toys for my son to play with and he had a great time running up and down the long hallway. There was even a play structure in the backyard! We had more than enough room for the adults and we were close to restaurants and grocery stores. If we head up to Sacramento again, I would try to stay here again.
