Adorable One Bedroom Condo with Large, private patio.
This condo has a newly updated interior in light green and blue hues. This is the perfect retreat for anyone wanting to relax and recharge. It's also perfect for anyone visiting or relocating to Chico, or establishing their son or daughter at Chico State.

The neighborhood is centrally located in South Chico; in a safe, working class neighborhood. It's close to so many places. You can walk to great restaurants, a wonderful Raley's supermarket with an impressive organic section is practically next door. There's a fantastic burrito place called Burrito Bandito that puts Chipotle to shame. There's Cocodine - which is fantastic Thai food, and the superb Ojima, a Japanese and Sushi place with a full bar, practically across the street. Also, lest I forget to mention that the world famous Sierra Nevada Taproom and Restaurant is just down the street a ways. It offers wonderful entertainment in their well known and impressive "Big Room." There are also daily tours of the state of the art brewery and a really cool gift shop! There's just SO much to do around this convenient little condo. Its private and homey and has a nice relaxing patio that gives the condo a more expamsive feel. I just love the place and sometimes stay there between guests just to escape my hectic family life. Lol!. The outside is a little rustic and needs a little work...but the homeowner's association keeps it maintained and landscaped. The the inside is very clean, fresh and nicely updated. It is an older complex and the upstairs tenants, although considerate and very nice, can be heard walking around at times complexes, as with most multi-unit. It doesn't bother me, as it doesn't seem to last long, and has not been a significant issue with guests. Also, I keep packages of unopened foam earplugs handy for guests. This is not a huge issue at all, but it's important to mention it so as to be as candid as possible. It's never bothered me or friends or family members who have stayed there one bit.

FEE REIMBURSEMENT: We offer reimbursement towards Airbnb fees by way of partially stocking the fridge prior to your arrival.

The condo is located minutes from the expansive and diverse Bidwell Park (where the original Robin Hood movie was filmed in the 1930's). Bidwell Park has a lovely golf course, cafe, shooting range, grassy picnic areas, a public swimming area, miles of hiking and biking trails, stunning cliffs and views, a stunning, robust, year round river, and several refreshing, easily accessible swimming holes. There are numerous areas to day camp, river walk, bike, hike, swim, and even fish.

The condo is well located, with close, easy access to Hwy 99, and to the Skyway which goes east to Paradise, or west towards Park Ave, which turns into "The Esplanade" and winds through downtown Chico, and beyond, through the beautiful "Avenue of Trees".

Paradise is a short, very scenic 11 mile drive east; through Chico's beautiful, little known, but breathtaking Butte Creek Canyon, and into the charming mountain towns of Paradise and Magalia. If interested in a little gambling, the beautiful, modern Gold Country Casino and Feather Falls Casino are both located approx 30 miles south, in Oroville. There is also a new, lovely Casino 30 miles north, in Corning, and another one approx 50 miles southwest, in Colusa.

The outdoor patio has a propane barbeque and sitting area, allowing you to unwind in peace and comfort in a private fully fenced area . Despite it being centrally located, the condo and patio are surprisingly quiet.

The condo has two flat screen TVs with Cable, HBO, other FREE movie channels. and several sports channels. There are also PPV channels available at an extra charge. (If you watch any PPV movies, please leave cash upon check-out). The bedroom TV is HD, and has a DVR. The living room TV is not HD, but has a DVD player. There is a Redbox (for inexpensive DVD rentals), at Raley's, two blocks from the condo. There is also FREE, FAST, wireless internet in the condo. The TVs and internet are Comcast, which offers far better quality and service than Satellite any day.

The condo is small, but the open layout, and outdoor patio increase the living space considerably. There is a 3 guest limit in this unit due to its smaller size. (Third person is an additional $15/night). Free parking is in space #11, steps from the front door. There's extra parking on the street for visitors or an extra car, or you can park in front of the dumpster (not an official parking spot) but visitors park there all the time with no problem or risk of being towed. There is an affordable coin operated washer and dryer in the complex, steps from the front door. $1.25 - $1.50 to wash, depending on the size of the load, and 75 cents - $1.00 to dry. Laundry soap, dish washing soap, and cleaning supplies are located for your use under the kitchen sink.

Tax is included in the price, which saves you an additional 10-13% that hotels charge. There is a refundable security deposit of $95 required.(Airbnb authorizes this amount upon booking, and then removes the auth on the day you check out), and a small Airbnb booking fee (which is reimbursed to you upon arrival - see details below). We rarely have guests with pets, but will usually allow a housebroken, mostly quiet, non destructive pet for a $10 per night additional fee, and a $75 refundable pet deposit (refunded at check out after a quick walk through ). We've had very few guests with pewts, but I've never kept anyone's pet deposit, and also have authorized AIRBNB to return all security deposits so far, as Airbnb guests have been the BEST!

The cozy bedroom has a very comfortable queen size pillow top bed, two nightstands with drawers and reading lamps, an alarm clock/radio, a closet with shelving, and an additional cabinet for storage. There is a comfy suede fold out sofa in the living room (Please cover sofa with sheet or blanket to protect suede if it will be used as a bed). There are plenty of sheets, blankets, towels and linens for your use in the cabinet next to the bathroom.

The full kitchen is well stocked with modern appliances, cook and dishware, paper towels, napkins, baggies, trash bags, etc., etc. for your use.

This is a wonderful alternative to staying at a hotel, due to all the home style amenities, two TVs, open floor plan, outdoor patio, propane BBQ, and added privacy. We have gone the extra mile to ensure your comfort during your stay, in the lovely gem that is Chico; and we look forward to your visit soon

The pet deposit is refunded to you upon check out, barring any issues. We rarely get guests with pets, and the condo is very clean and odor free as a result of that.

This was great location! Very tidy and cute decor overall very well put together- perfect for what was needed. Kristi's an extremely kind and accommodating hostess and even offered a ride from the bus station upon arrival. I would absolutely recommend this space to anyone visiting Chico!

Kristi was AWESOME!! My sister and I were visiting my mom and other sister in Chico and she was great. We did have water issues and wifi issues in the apartment which were not her fault but, she took care of the problem and was generous in compensating us for the lack of water and wifi. Neighborhood was quiet, near a grocery store and easy freeway access. I would totally stay here again! Neighborhood felt safe. The apartment was clean and she even stocked the fridge with water and little oranges and cheese!!! She made what could have been a stressful trip a breeze!!!

Kristis place was exactly what we needed. Cute, neat & tucked away in a quite apartment complex. Everything inside was clean and fresh feeling. Decorated nicely & had the basic necessities. I ran a few times around the neighborhood and felt very safe. There are stores conveniently located close by. We had the pleasure of meeting her neighbor Mike and he is such an incredibly sweet and thoughtful guy. Even shared some ribs with us on night! Gave us some tips about the area and the number for a local reliable cab (URL HIDDEN) when I come back to Chipotle I'm booking her place again!

From the moment I walked in, I was so happy. The place is sparkling, it's so clean. Beautiful home, decorated tastefully and fun, and extremely livable. It honestly felt like home the moment I walked in. Great location, neighborhood. Kristi left us with little surprises everywhere, it felt like. She truly crosses all her T's and dots her I's. It's all in the details. Thank you so much Kristi. I really enjoyed my stay. Everything was perfect.

Staying in Kristi's condo was a dream! Local to all the events of the weekend. Walking distance to restaurants, shopping and Starbucks (YUM!). Her condo was the perfect size for us (We had two adults and one child). Kristi was so available to us and willing to be helpful. If we are ever back in Chico again I will definitely book this condo!
