The private cottage is located on one of the oldest and most beautiful tree lined streets in Davis. Only 1 block to UC Davis and a 5-10 minute walk to downtown (2 min drive).

It is a remodeled studio style cottage with all new furniture including a comfy queen bed, full size sofa bed, TV, new kitchen, a small dining table and a private patio with a garden.

It is great for a couple, professors, business travelers, parents and students visiting UC Davis, small families or close friends.

The space

The cottage is a studio with the living space, kitchen and bedroom all in one room. It is completely remodeled with all new furniture, you'll enjoy the comfy bed and sofa bed, with down pillows, blankets and stay warm/cool with the new heat/ac unit. The cottage has a private bathroom with a shower. The small fully equipped kitchen is perfect for cooking light meals. There is a Reverse Osmosis water filter for the best drinking water around!

On warm days the private patio is a wonderful place to enjoy a meal or a little sunshine.

This is a smoke free property! Please no smoking anywhere on the property!

We are proud to offer green practices in our cottage. We use non-toxic cleaners and laundry detergents, we recycle, compost, grow fruit and veggies and we use energy efficient appliances and practice conservation.

Guest access

When you arrive you will have a bowl of fresh organic fruit, local olive oil and locally roasted organic fair-trade coffee as well as a selection of teas in the kitchen.

The cottage is very private and has it's own access. The patio and entrance are surrounded by a 6 foot redwood fence giving guests extra privacy.

You can harvest fresh herbs and flowers from your private garden.

Interaction with guests

The parking is in our personal driveway which is adjacent to our home. You will walk past our house and garage to a long private path to your cottage in the back corner of the property. Sometimes we'll be playing basketball in the driveway.

There is a lovely butterfly and herb garden exclusively for our guests with a private patio and dining area.

We have 2 cats, 4 chickens and honey bees on the property. The cats are not allowed in the cottage, but may visit the private patio. They’re very friendly, but don’t be afraid to shoo them away either!

You may hear our children playing in the backyard.

Other things to note

We recently purchased our home on our favorite street in Davis. We have been working since August to renovate it and bring it back to life. We’ve come a long way. The cottage is finally done and we're thrilled to be hosting with airbnb. Our garden is the next step and will be a mix of the old and new. We plan to have a veggie garden soon.

Check-in is somewhat flexible. Let us know when you would like to check-in and we will do our best to accommodate the request. If the cottage is booked the night before, the earliest check-in we can offer is 3pm. If the cottage is vacant the evening before, you may check-in earlier, just ask for your preferred time.

Please ask if you need anything additional to make your stay more pleasant or easy. We've been guests at many locations, and have used all the wonderful ideas we've gathering in our travels to make our cottage a wonderful experience for every guest, every time!

The Charming Cottage is fabulous! It's plenty of room for two and cozy for 3-4. The kitchen is well-equipped - we found everything that we needed and more. We spent the holiday weekend in Davis with our daughter and her fiancee. This location was perfect for walking to the Farmer's Market and downtown shops and restaurants. We definitely will stay here again, with Elissa and Daniel.

Our stay with Elissa and Daniel was absolutely perfect and exceeded our expectations! Elissa and Daniel are communicative and thoughtful hosts and made sure that check-in was easy. The guest house itself was impeccably clean. comfortable, and well-equipped with anything you need- kitchen utensils, extra towels, coffee, tea, etc. It was super cozy and private, with a very nice outdoor space. Very close to campus, which was convenient for the conference I was attending. Recommend this stay and Elissa and Daniel as hosts 100%!

Elissa and Daniel's place is truly amazing! The place is very private, clean, stylish, comfortable, and exactly as described in their listing and pictures. I would definitely stay here again when in Davis. They were also very helpful for an early check-in and greeted us when we got there! Thanks a bunch.

Elissa was so nice to work with. Friendly, helpful, just plain nice! The cottage is immaculate, newly renovated, decorated really nicely, and they provided neat touches like eggs and fruit, chilled water ready in the fridge, and a bag of fresh local coffee that we enjoyed in the coffee press! There is a private outdoor area with a table that made it feel like a bigger space. The walk to Davis is lovely, and you really have to see the beauty of their tree-lined street to appreciate how special it is. I can't say enough about how wonderful it was to stay at Elissa and Daniel's place.
