The short version? You’ll love it!
Come with high expectations! You’re in for a treat!
Our "Bamboo Cottage" has just been newly renovated into a delightful getaway; romantic, relaxing, energizing. A small but perfectly appointed space for 1 or 2 people with a comfortable double-bed, spacious closet, full bathroom, kitchenette and large outdoor space for relaxing, overlooking a lush green lawn.
Our lovely independent cottage has a private entrance and its own garden lawn and patio.
There’s a small enclosed kitchenette with induction single burner cooktop, electric kettle, microwave, toaster oven… everything you need for basic cooking.
We named it Bamboo Cottage believing that once you name things, they become more alive and vibrant… There’s Heavenly Bamboo planted outside and the Asian theme for the décor is intended to create a spiritual atmosphere, inviting relaxation and mindfulness.
The outdoor area has a bistro table for dining or working, comfortable bamboo chairs for reading or having a conversation over a glass of wine and a freestanding 2-person hammock for forgetting about everything…
All the essentials are provided and if you need anything, just let us know and we will do our best to bring it to you.
Special treats? We have a long list for you to choose from: award winning wines, locally made organic bread, fresh every Saturday noon, French pastries (Thursday through Sunday), professional massages, yoga classes… we’re happy to act the role of friendly, informed concierge and book/arrange whatever experience you would like. A local chef will deliver meals (yummy!) if you want, just ask for email menu.
The area is chock-full of resources: from wineries making great wines, beekeepers producing fragrant honey, olive oil mills, lakes to swim in, trails to hike…
Nevada City, a charming gold-mining town, is just 45 minutes away and if you go the ‘back road’, you’ll see amazing scenery, driving by the Bullards Bar Reservoir and meeting the famous Route 49. For a real outing, you can explore Downieville (dive into the Gold Rush history) and the lovely lakes (Sardine Lake, Salmon Lake, Gold lake) where you can swim or hike forever…
The Bamboo Cottage is just steps from our house: if you need anything, just call or text and if we are at home we can help you immediately. At the same time, you can enjoy your privacy without even knowing that we are at home.
Plenty of parking space next to the cottage: your entrance is totally private, your own outdoor space is fenced and visually inaccessible.

Throughout the area, cellphone reception is only with AT&T and Verizon. No Sprint, T-Mobile or other minor carriers.
At our home you will have a pretty good signal strength, but as you drive around the area, the signal strength varies and sometimes disappears completely.
No pets please. We have a lovely shy cat that will probably remain out of your sight. (And he has never been in the cottage, in case you have allergies…)
For longer stays we offer a weekly cleaning service for $15. Fresh linens (bedding and towels) is an extra $10.
We love the Airbnb community and it is wonderful to meet other people who do...
We are both from Europe (Italy and England), we traveled extensively worldwide and we know what makes a difference in a place.
Now we have created a private space in our home where we can practice the art of hospitality, we keep on learning from it and enjoying every minute!
We hope to be able to provide our guests with a memorable beautiful experience, more than a place to stay.
