About Carole M. Arbuckle

Retired State Whistleblower and business owner. Just enjoying all that life has to offer in my completely remodeled Little Gingerbread Victorian. Nothing better than sitting on the porch watching the ballet practice or on the patio watching the birds and butterflies feed on grains and flowers. Life is truly good.

Carole M. Arbuckle purchased this house in 1998

Why Carole M. Arbuckle chose Central Sacramento

Wanted an old granny house so my grandchildren could touch a bit of the bygone days...With all the updates & conveniences of modern times. Such a perfect location.

Wonderful House and Host!!

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful stay at this adorable home that was just like staying in Paris! I spoke with Carole prior to arriving, she inquired about our needs and they were all met. There were wonderful cookies to welcome us along with a bottle of wine and my husbands favorite beer! The beds were super comfortable so after finally waking up there were english muffins in the fridge and the best coffee to make in a french press - what could be better! The house was very accessible to restaurants and downtown. If we come back to Sacramento i will definitely be calling!

Home Away From Home, But Better !

  • 5 of 5

Such a charming house and great location. A real gem with history, character and just enough modern touches to make it comfortable. Amazing kitchen, stocked with homemade cookies and wine, what more could a girl want ? Comfortable beds, beautiful outside sitting area, front porch... really an amazing place. Just be sure to check in exactly at 4 pm, or call her. No lockbox. Would definitely recommend.

Lovely Stay at Grandma's House!

  • 4 of 5

Carole is so welcoming and sweet, and she really made us feel like we were staying at grandma's house for the weekend. She's done a nice job remodeling the 130+ year old home, and the backyard is especially charming. Lots of decorations, which for some more active kids may be hard to resist but luckily our toddler was surprisingly respectful haha. Home is small but met our needs for a quick stay!

Owner's Response: Emily, It was a pleasure having you girls and the little ones. The decorations and yard is especially for the little ones to enjoy. They were sooo respectful...but my belief is, "It's just stuff and here for enjoyment". The twins next door were sorry they missed you. You left the place spotless...couldn't tell anyone was here. Thank you for choosing this Little Victorian. Again, thank you and you are always welcome back anytime. Warm Wishes, Carole

Great experience and very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The house is charming, everything was easy access. The neighborhood and convenient to nearby restaurants. Carole was easily available and even provided a lot of provisions for us. We will definitely come and share our experiences with others.

Owner's Response: What a pleasure. Great couple. House was left spotless...Couldn't tell they visited. Left me lots of goodies. But the best was there patience over the central heat & air...on one of the hottest days of the year! Thank you John. Welcome back anytime. Fond Regards, Carole

Adorable house

  • 5 of 5

I was a little apprehensive since there were not any reviews on the property, but I am so glad we rented. Carole was a pleasure to work with. I was delayed getting up to the property and Carole was an Angel, she was more than willing to work with me and even offered for me to change my dates. This ole house is within walking distance of some amazing restaurants, I highly suggest Mulvaneys B&L, only a few blocks away. Carole has thought of everything, the house was stocked with everything we need. The only negative for some might be how high the bath tub is, she does provide a step stool but if you are at all unsteady on your feet it might be a challenge. I loved our stay here and it was such a pleasure to meet Carole!

Owner's Response: I am new to HomeAway and VRBO...Also a bit apprehensive. But guests like Kristi and Chaz have made it a thoroughly enjoyable experience. The home appeared as if no one had stayed...left me 2 bottles of awesome wine...and...left me homemade chocolate chip cookies! They were the best! So nice nowadays to find there are still sooo many nice people in this crazy world. Thank you Kristy & Chaz. It was a pleasure. Welcome back any time. :>) Carole~
