Lovely House, W/ Tennis Court & Swimming Pool, for Relaxing by Bidwell Park
average rating of 4.875 based on 16 reviews

Solid amenities, close to Bidwell Park, very short/direct drive to downtown.

  • 5 of 5

We all loved the yard to run around in, the short walk to Bidwell Park (with horses to visit along the way), the very short and direct drive to downtown (and one freeway exit away from Sierra Nevada Brewery). I enjoyed the spa, and well enjoyed the comfortable home to build lego's, watch a movie, and play games.

Joyce was an amazing host and had the place was very clean. She even had a Christmas tree set up for us which the kids loved! It was a perfect place for us to stay while visiting family over the holidays. The beds were very comfortable! We would highly recommend this place to anyone.

Wonderful Rental Propert

  • 5 of 5

As a traveling physical therapist, this was the perfect home to accommodate my needs for a short term rental. The apartment is fully furnished and well maintained and I enjoyed an entire summer by the pool :) The tennis courts were a bonus when the weather wasn't too hot, and I loved exploring the park nearby.

Great Host and a Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

Joyce is a lovely host, she is so accommodating and easy to work with. She works hard to keep her property in order for her guests and it shows. Our favorite part of our stay here was lounging by the gardens and playing tennis in the tennis courts. We also enjoyed a dip in the pool on a warm day - needless to say this house is great for the sporty or outdoorsy! We will definitely be returning in the future.
