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 apartment. 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 apartment 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 apartment, 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 guest house is booked the night before, the earliest check-in we can offer is 3pm. If the guest house 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 studio apartment a wonderful experience for every guest, every time!

Elissa and Daniel have struck a perfect balance between comfort, design, and functionality. Their guest house is stunning in every way- from the intuitive living features (extremely well thought out kitchen) to the small touches (super fresh linens and treats in the refrigerator) that mean so much when one is traveling. I wanted for absolutely nothing and even left with ideas on how to make my own house better! Communication was flawless and the neighborhood was a joy to explore on foot. I was here during an annual work event but I'm already looking for a free weekend to return to explore the area a bit more. Davis is really a lovely town and I'm so glad I ventured away from the hotel experience this time. What a pleasure! Thank you, Elissa and Daniel!

The house is very pretty, well equipped and very comfortable for three people. We spent a week and they did everything to make us feel at ease. The internet worked very well. When we arrived, we loved the small basket with fruit and eggs, which we found in the fridge. We took advantage of the pleasant temperature of the morning to have breakfast on the balcony.

We both grew up in San Francisco and met through a mutual friend. We had our first date a few years later and have been together ever since. 6 years ago we decided to move to a smaller town with a slower pace. We landed in Davis in 2011 and we love it! We walk and bike everywhere and we have met so many wonderful people from all over the world!

We love to cook, garden, play music and travel. We have loved using Airbnb during our travels so we are very excited to share our studio apartment as hosts!

We have 3 great kids. Our eldest daughter is attending UC Davis and lives with friends a few blocks away. Our 12 year old daughter is in middle school and our 10 year old son is in elementary school.

We’ve used Airbnb as travelers quite a bit over the past several years and are now becoming hosts. Whether traveling or hosting we look forward to meeting you!
