5/5 Excellent

chico ranch house
We had a great time. I was disappointed to not have a kitchen to prepare food, but we made due. It would have been nice to have a larger refrigerator. It was nice to have complimentary breakfast pastries, coffee, tea, juices and waters. The house was clean and the bedrooms comfortable. We enjoyed cooling off in the pool and the grounds were beautiful.

5/5 Excellent

Inviting, comfortable and safe!
The home was absolutely beautiful ! My family and I were very pressed for time so we didn’t get to explore the property much but from what we could see it was immaculate ! I will definitely be using this property in particular again in my next visit to Chico ! The owners of the property were very kind and very helpful! this was my first experience with VRBO ! I will definitely recommend this property to my friends and family when they come up to visit Chico !

5/5 Excellent

Relaxing Stay in Beautiful Home - Highly Recommend!
We stayed in this home for three nights recently, during a very difficult time. Three small families came together for a funeral in town. We found this home to be so peaceful and comfortable. The owners and property manager were super helpful and attentive, while maintaining our privacy. We had one small issue come up, and it was resolved immediately. The grounds are just beautiful, and very well maintained, and there is plenty of parking. They went above and beyond, with extra touches such as lots of snacks and drinks stocked for us. This home is great for all sorts of gatherings. We loved how each bedroom has its own private bathroom. The pool will be wonderful to use in the summer. We all highly recommend this home.
