About Chandra

I purchased this house because Downieville is a little piece of gold in heaven. It's such a sweet little town, and a great place to relax and turn it all off!

Chandra purchased this House in 2004

Why Chandra chose Downieville

I loved this property because of the space it offers. It has a large living room and kitchen. Perfect for entertaining friends and family. The deck wraps around the entire house, and everyone just loves sitting on the deck and enjoying the views.

What makes this House unique

This house is well built. Stays cool in the summer, warm in the winter, and in on the SunnySide of the mountain, which means it gets full sun all year round. The house offers space to enjoy company but not be cramped in one room. This is just a short walk to town, and entertainment. This is the perfect house to have a small retreat, a family reunion or just a party with good friends. You can hang out on the deck, or in the main living room. There's enough space for everyone.

On the deck, children need to be supervised, however, there is gates to lock up to prevent them from heading downstairs.

                                                                  Greg K.

                                                                  We've been coming to Downieville to ride for years and this house has been the best we've had so far. Easily accommodated 9 guys + large kitchen (with dishwasher!) + huge deck + convenient ride up/down to shuttles in town. Owner was super-easy to work with and very accommodating. Definitely recommend this house.

                                                                  Amazing house and a great little town

                                                                  Brian C.

The proximity to central Downieville is great, and makes trips to the river or the shops in town extremely easy. The house is very comfortable and has an excellent deck with breathtaking views.

                                                                  Great place and accommodations

                                                                  John A.

It's spacious, has plenty of bathrooms, well-equipped kitchen and lots of toys to entertain young children. Chandra was very accommodating and available for questions, etc. We enjoyed walking around the town of Downieville and the river. We would gladly stay there again!

                                                                  Great accommodations

The wrap around porch was a huge plus, especially since we spent most of our time out on it. The view from the deck into the forest was fantastic, and watching the sun set illuminating the trees, all from the deck was special. Huge kitchen, plenty of beds, clean and comfortable, again, great house, we'll be back for sure!

                                                                  Wonderful House

We enjoyed the breeze and the beautiful views. Just a short walk to the main street, some great local spots and friendly folks. Thank you to the owners who were very responsive and helpful. We will be back.
