The Space

Even though the fog rolls in along the river and into the Sebastopol valleys, Forestville -up the hill- is on the sunny side.
Comfortable, bright and quiet bdrm w/king bed, fold out futon for child or extra guest and full bath, sitting porch to enjoy the back gardens, with your favorite beverage. NO Network TV, but movie viewing is available. Internet access available, and cell reception can always be found and as are almost All homes in Forestville and West County in general, we have an earth freindly septic system, which is of no matter to you except to be mindful to dispose ONLY toilet paper in toilet.
2 blocks to Burkes canoe and Russian River beaches, 2 blocks to tennis courts, 1/2 block to local bus line, 3/4 miles walk into the town of Forestville. There you will find Nightingale bakery, Roasters coffee, several different eaterys from high end Italian at Canetti's to family style pizza. There's organic, locally grown California cuisine at The Back Yard and Rosa's Mexican cafe and market; wine tasting, and the head of Sonoma West County bike trail.
In the heart of Russian River Wine Country there are also several brewries worth visiting.
Lots of farmers markets, canoe and kayak rentals, zip lines in the redwoods, oysters in the raw and bbq. horse back riding, hill and valley hiking, swimming, and day dreaming
All can be found and enjoyed , starting right here--on the sunny side. p.s. no smoking in the house. thanx for your consideration. we'd love to have you join us.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • The quiet surroundings and the comfy accommodations made for a wonderful restful stay. Best sleep I've had in years. Also, it is within small driving distances to many little towns in the Sonoma County area. Thanks Keisu!

  • Keisu was an absolute dream of a host. She was welcoming and friendly, and seemed genuinely happy to have us. Her home was open, bright, and relaxing. I especially enjoyed the shady hammock.

  • Keisu was so very warm, friendly, welcoming, helpful and personable. The Sunny Side exceeded our expectations and was more of a Private Area than just a Private Room. The bed was very large and honestly the most comfortable bed (and linens) we have ever laid on ... ever! While visiting we went wine tasting & canoed on the river- both were very close to this location. The Sunny Side was a clean, comfortable, exciting place to stay and I hope we can return soon!

  • Keisu's place was clean, quiet, and very peaceful. The neighborhood was very safe and conveniently located to Healdsburg, Santa Rosa, and Goat Rock State Park (among other places, I'm sure, but those were the ones I visited). I didn't have the opportunity to meet Keisu in person but she was warm, friendly, and attentive via phone and email! I would definitely stay there again!

  • Keisu was a very warm, welcoming host and it was lovely to meet her, even for a brief time. The room and back porch were very comfortable and peaceful. Thanks!

  • I had a wonderfully comfortable stay "On the Sunny Side" and slept soundly. Keisu was flexible on my check-in time as I adjusted my plans with friends. With our schedules (I was off to another adventure in the morning) we only had a bit of conversation, but enough to tell you she is a warm and accommodating host. The house is located in a tranquil Forestville neighborhood. I would stay here again when in the Russian River / Sonoma County area.

  • Keisu is a very loving and caring woman and she went out of her way to take care of our every need. The bedroom is huge with lots of storage space. The king size bed is very comfortable. The bathroom is wonderful with great water pressure in the shower. It is a quiet and peaceful place and so convenient to activities in the area. I would highly recommend a stay at On the Sunny Side.

    April 2014
  • Keisu is a wonderful host and her space is comfortable and warm. I would definitely stay with her again on my next trip up to the Russian River!

I was born SLC Utah, where i started skiing @ 4yrs. old. Thought my greatest love was the mts. until my father was transfered to SF. and there i learned to sail on the bay. Traveled back and forth across the continent for three years until moving to England when i was 21 yrs.old. traveled in northern Europe and back to the US. Came to Sonoma County in 1976 and besides alot of "travel trips" I haven't left. Found Forestville to meet all my needs and keep me close to the mts, close to the ocean, and close to my favorite city-by-the-bay. Been a therapist for 27 years and have a studio on the property. Have been a guest with airbnb in Europe and want to meet and share with others of like mind. Lots of fun times with my kids and grandkids who live close. Been doing mosaic work for years and 3yrs ago did a project with kids from a rural town south of Puerto Vallarta. I guess that's my greatest love ...travel and kids, oh yeahh and then theres those mountains and oceans. well, I guess if safe to say...I lOVE LIFE . We would love to have you come and share our quaint and joyous home and neighborhood.
