The Space

We happily offer a very comfortable bed in a simple, sweet room in our colorful old California bungalow. It is $10 more per night for a second person.

For a couple of weeks in July and December we rent out the whole house. We use cotton linens and natural cleaning products. We are CHEMICAL FRAGRANCE FREE. Please see house rules regarding this.

This is not the place for you if:
1. you use regular laundry detergent at your house like Tide, Kirkland, Cheer, All, Surf, Method or Mrs Meyers or do your laundry at a laundromat where people have used those products, including Downy and Bounce, Fabreeze etc....
2. You use body or hair care products like L'Oreal, Pantene, Breck, Herbal Essence, anything with synthetic fragrance that you will be wearing into the house, including Neutrogena.

There is a sweet garden space in the back yard to relax in. We have shampoos, body lotions, hair dryer etc for your use at no extra charge.
There is a shelf in the fridge for you, and feel free to use the wonderful roomy kitchen.
NetFlix available with our Roku streaming device as well as wireless internet access.
Street parking is available in front of the house, on a block of shady trees and older homes, 5 blocks from downtown Santa Rosa. About 10 blocks from the Junior College. Shared bathroom, great kitchen and relaxing yard.
The bed is a mccroskey (email hidden)lled their "cloud" or extra soft......we do have a board that we put under the mattress that changes it to be more firm. our expert, in-house tester (my husband, chuck) says it firms the mattress to his high standard for firmness. if desired it is easy for us to put it down. just let us know.

CHEMICAL FRAGRANCE FREE. See House Rules(tab right beside this description tab) pertaining to this before you book okay?

Great wine, food, hiking and biking abound. 1 hour north of the Golden Gate Bridge on hwy 101. 30 minutes from the gorgeous Sonoma coast. Also, the soul of this city is the conjunction of three parks; Howarth, Spring Lake, and Anadel State Park. MIles of hiking and biking trails, some paved a lot off road and fire roads.....with 3 lakes. The lower lakes are great for rowing and kayaking and paddle (email hidden)me fishing. Quite gorgeous and all within 5 miles of the house, right in the city limits.
We have a small cottage behind the house with a tenant who never bothers us, and is very cordial. he does not use the yard.
At times we rent out the whole 2 bedroom 1 bath house. you can see on the calendar when there is a price raise.....generally the first of july for a couple of weeks and possibly around winter holidays. for longer rentals than 3 days, our refund policy gets more strict. i hope you understand. Sometimes when we are in negotiation for a longer rental you see a stricter refund policy than for our short term stays.
Cotton linens, natural cleaning products.
Fragrance Free.

Interaction with Guests

We are generally in and about during your stay, unless you are renting the whole house. We like to be available for questions about the area and to make sure you are comfortable. We can talk story and share experiences when we are up to it, but may not be sometimes as well, and always your need for privacy comes first!

The Neighborhood

We live on a street of big shady trees with older style bungalows and homes about 8 blocks from downtown santa rosa...this area is pretty darn safe. i walk home from downtown all the time. Even at night it's safe.

Getting around

the public transport terminal is within a mile and you can walk down to mendocino( 7 blocks or so) to catch a bus. there may also be a bus two blocks from here on College Avenue.

Other Things to Note

At certain times of the year, we rent out the whole house. you can see the prices raise on our calendar and know that is when the whole house is available.

  • This home (email hidden) to stay! It was wonderful to stay here with my young daughter. Carole was very friendly and accommodating. The house was clean, well kept, and cozy. The bed was soft and comfortable, and a very welcome relief at the end of the day. Thank you!!!

  • Chuck and Carole were very friendly and hospitable. There home is lovely and the location can't be beat. Also, their restaurant recommendations helped me enjoy my weekend.

    June 2014
  • This is my second visit with Carole and Chuck, and I enjoyed it immensely. Their house is very convenient to all things Santa Rosa, and an easy drive to the coast and San Francisco. If you are a chemical fragrance free type, like me, this the perfect place for you to stop.

  • Carole and Chuck's home is lovely. It's in a beautiful old section of downtown Santa Rosa, surrounded by abundant gardens everywhere. It's a very easy walk to the heart of downtown. They were gracious hosts and provided everything I needed. Especially as the price is so reasonable, I would definitely recommend staying there.

  • What a fortunate and beautiful experience I had staying here! The room was very cozy and clean, and the house was a dream to be in. Chuck was away at the time, and Carole made me feel very welcome and quite at home. I so enjoyed any chance I had to speak with her as she is very loving and kind. I would highly recommend staying here to any family or friend!

  • (email hidden) to stay in Santa Rosa. Carole and Chuck are excellent hosts and their home is quiet, beautiful and inviting. They made room for my things in the bathroom, my food had a shelf in the refrigerator, and my bed was large and comfortable. I also really appreciated that the house was free of chemical fragrances, something that always bothers me. I couldn't have asked for a nicer introduction to this charming city. They were also very welcoming and friendly, to the point that I feel like I've found two very good friends, even if their are on the other side of the country.

  • This is my first AirBnB experience and it was great. Carol and Chuck are very welcoming and generous hosts, and they have a lovely home. It was fun getting to know them. They are intelligent, fun and gentle people.

  • What a pleasure to stay with Carole and Chuck! I felt well-cared for, relaxed, and always welcome in their lovely home. I was staying for a few days while setting up my next rental (which is just down the street) and I am so happy to have met them and call them my neighbors. I feel so grateful to have found this fragrance free home and slept very well during my stay. I highly recommend staying here!
