  • Just OK


    Extended family remains in Chico so quite familiar with the city and thought an alternative to a hotel would be a nice for the trip. New listing and room for improvement. This property is difficult to find on the street. Arrived 10PM. The house number is not sufficient for the bungalow rental behind the main house (480 looks like 400). Dark street so walked a couple of driveways before realizing and late at night is not a good idea. Perhaps a prominent sign at the street? Called number (2X) for assistance. No return call during the entire stay and owners are on site.?? The property is a small bungalow. Expected, but too much furniture for the space and occupancy, so felt overly cramped. No accommodation for suitcases so used the coffee table and the small sofa. Did not use kitchen except for coffee but appears nicely outfitted. Shower head mount points right to opening so can easily miss the shower surround. Outside could have been quite nice. The courtyard has a small table and chairs and also an additional seating area. However, when you know guests are arriving, clean up of the courtyard to remove the dirt and leaves from the cushions would be expected but was not done.

    Manager's Response:

    Owners response:
    "Lynn, we appreciate your feedback and want all of our guests to rest easy when they stay with us, and we're truly sorry that you experienced some issues during your trip.
    - Mary is an amazing host and usually very good with correspondence, we are not sure what happened. We have talked to her and she understands the importance of communication. Thanks to your feedback, she will be reaching out to our guests before they arrive to ensure they are connected to their on-site hostess
    - We will be getting new numbers for the front of the house and also adding something to the back to show unit B, we've only had this happen once before and made several adjustments at that time, in hopes it would not happen again. Thanks to your feedback we have improved our check-in process, we are listening and appreciate you.
    - We are unsure about the confusion with it being a larger bungalow. It is a true studio and we have double-checked our description to be clear about that
    - We will also make sure that the courtyard is guest-ready, but nature is in control. As a regular Chico visitor, I'm sure you know fall is full of falling leaves, especially in the Avenues
    Thank you again for your feedback. We truly go above and beyond for our guests, and we are confident that future guests will have excellent stays!"

    The apartment is well located. It’s small but well furnished and has a small area outside.
