Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Dappled light and the scents of honeysuckle will greet you as you enter our gated property through the private entrance. Settle in with a movie, watch the stars from the garden, or head downtown to enjoy one of Riverside’s great restaurants. Start the morning with u-pick, fresh orange juice before your day begins - so many places to visit from this centralized location! Add an “extra” amenity - citrus mocktails at dusk, roasted marshmallow kit, or just enjoy the fire light.

The space
This is a detached garage with an additional bedroom upstairs. The lower area has been made into to a living and sleeping space with a large, separate bathroom and shower. There is no formal kitchen, though we do provide some amenities to help you enjoy evening take out or breakfast basics. This includes disposable plates, napkins, and flatware, microwave, mini-fridge, tea kettle, coffee maker and an assortment of teas and coffee. Milk or cream to be stocked upon request. Mugs, glasses, and a juice squeezer also provided.

Upstairs, a small bedroom has been added with a bunk (double bed on the bottom) and sink. Note that the stairs to the upper unit are on the outside of the building.

A note on weather and temperatures - Riverside is in a desert and daytime temperatures can get really hot July-September - dry, but hot. In the evening things cool down dramatically.

The lower space stays at fairly even temperatures if the windows are closed during the day. The downstairs AC unit and heater can add comfort as needed.

The upstairs space does NOT have an AC unit but with the ceiling fan and two walls of windows for cross-breeze it's down right lovely when it starts to cool.

Where you’ll be

Riverside, California, United States

A word on nighttime noise: there are several neighborhood dogs in the immediate area who stay outside at night. Occasionally they’ll catch whiff of a critter and get excited, sometimes barking for several minutes. A couple miles away, trains run through the night, occasionally blowing their horns. Many like this distant woooo-wooo sound, but it is nonetheless sound, at night. Occasionally a cricket will find its way inside to provide a personal concert for our guests. Some like the songs, others find the broom and eject the offending music maker.

We are spectacularly lucky to live in a quintessential neighborhood where magnolia trees line the streets, kids play up and down the block, and birds and squirrels chitter and chirp through out the day. It's common for folks to drive into this area to park and take a walk. Historic homes, beautiful landscapes, and friendly neighbors make this an attractive area to just walk around! Downtown Riverside and its wonderful pedestrian only center is an easy ten minute stroll, or moment's trip by car.

Hard working mom, teacher, wife, and friend with an easy laugh and big heart. I try to be real and stay connected to what is truly important. Gardening, walks/hikes/beach, and uninterrupted time with our son and family help me stay grounded. I was a middle school teacher for 10+ years (science!) until transitioning to work with a science publisher when we moved to Boston. I am a passionate advocate for children and education and feel blessed to have found careers that are so deeply and personally rewarding. Prior to becoming a parent I traveled all over the world and I am greatly enjoying getting to sharing travel with my son as he gets older. We are from Portland, OR but have recently moved to Riverside, CA by way of Boston for a few years. We have an extended family and since we've moved we have hosted our (eight!) parents, siblings, and friends several times. I love to prepare our guest room with a basket of "things you might have forgotten" and a vase of fresh flowers to help our guests feel special.

During your stay

We strive to make the check in process easy with electronic key pad entry for both the vehicle gate and the door, but we're also happy to greet you personally and help you get settled in.

The Citrus Garden Studios share the spacious garden and yard with the main house where our family resides. You may see us in our yard area but there is plenty of room (and two patio areas for guests) to stay private if you'd prefer.

If you do ever want to stop and chat, you are always welcome - we're happy to share recommendations of all the fun things to do in and around Riverside. If you'd like to add a special amenity to your stay, please see our "extras" offerings and let us know!
