The space

I stayed at Downtown Haven while my floors were being redone, and I must say, it was just like being home. It is such a delightful little cottage, and Jessie has made it so inviting. I was there for ten days, so it was like a home away from home. You won't be disappointed, it is just lovely. I plan on returning just because it is so warm and cozy and a feeling of a step back in time. There is everything you might need, and it's close to downtown and many nice restaurants. Truly a wonderful stay. Thank you, Jessie!!

This spot is great!! Very clean and couldn't be more convenient. Very quaint apartment in a very quiet area. Check in was a breeze and the owner was very responsive.

Jessie was awesome and her cute apartment totally lived up! My husband and I were totally comfortable in Jessie's clean, well cared for, well stocked with all the essentials, vintage home. The neighbors were pretty loud at odd hours (sounded like they had a small child who was running around the house :) but what can you expect in an apartment/duplex type arrangement? No biggie- we actually met the family and they were very nice! Will absolutely recommend to others and stay here again on our future visits! It was exactly what we were looking for!

Response from Jessie:
Thank you Meghan. The Airbnb guests in the other duplex did have a two year old. So sorry he was up and running around when he should have been sleeping (?) Both apartments have hardwood floors, which doesn't help when it comes to footsteps between the two apartments. Thank you for being understanding, and glad you had a good today. Warmly, Jessie

Jessie's attention to detail and cleanliness is more than most 4 star diamond rated hotels. Even the extra linens are iron pressed and immaculately folded! When I didn't see dish gloves among the treasure trove of cleaning supplies she had them there by evening. The place is at the end of a quaint neighborhood which is great for early morning or evening walks. It's more than just a place to eat and sleep but a true home.

This spacious one-bedroom apartment was the perfect place for us and our baby. We had plenty of room to have our baby take a quiet nap in the bedroom while we had family and friends visit at the same time. We loved the 1940's charm and the modern amenities. Jessie takes great care of this place and we would stay there again.

I am an estate liquidator and my husband is a real estate appraiser. Our children introduced us to Airbnb and we booked twice on a trip to Idaho. The experience was great, and led us to convert one of our Bakersfield apartments into an Airbnb. I would describe myself as a frien…
