This detatched studio apartment offers a full kitchen and private bathroom. Tucked away on a half acre of private gardens, guests can enjoy bocce ball and horseshoes, sit by a small koi pond, and enjoy exploring the garden and five tiki huts. In the evening, enjoy the firepit while sitting under the stars and towering palms. Fresh eggs are available for breakfast with a small chicken coop on the grounds. Guests have access to a small kitchen garden and herbs as well. The studio's patio offers a bistro table and chairs and use of the gas grill BBQ. The studio boasts a full-sized bed and fully equipped kitchen, but many fabulous restaurants are just minutes away. Towels and spa robes are provided. Cable television and wifi in the studio, no phone.
I enjoy a quiet residential neighborhood.
We had a lovely stay at this little oasis getaway! We were looking forward to using the jacuzzi, but is currently being replaced so that was kind of a bummer, other than that and the rain that prevented us from using the fire pit and lovely yard rick has, everything was great. The room is clean and nicely laid out with everything you need and more--fridge was stocked with fresh eggs from the chicken coop and fruit/yogurt/coffee/etc.
Would recommend :)
We'd happily recommend The Hideaway to anyone looking for beautiful, quiet, and clean place to stay for a couple of days.
Unfortunately for us, we were unlucky enough to stay there on the wettest weekend of the year, and didn't get a chance to use the outdoor facilities, which are the clear, very impressive highlight. Clutching umbrellas, we did stumble through the puddles as best we could to still admire the five tiki huts (all of which have lights, and several with sinks for late-night drinks), the pond, the chicken coop, the bocce ball court and horseshoe court... Rick really puts amazing effort and hard work into the upkeep!
Even with the rain, we still had a great time sticking to the indoors. The room is small, but cozy for two people, with a very comfortable bed, extremely well-stocked and modern kitchen (stove, oven, microwave, toaster, coffee pot, etc), and bathroom with shower. The Wifi worked fine, and there's a little TV too. The space is well thought-out, and was spotlessly clean.
The location is quiet and residential, a short drive from at least one big supermarket, and a nice selection of restaurants. Rick was very friendly and easy to get hold of, and they sent us very detailed instructions on how to get there.
Now all we have to do is come back when it's sunny!
I was in the area to visit family in the evenings, but needed a quiet place to work during the day. The internet connection was great, the neighborhood was quiet, and the chickens kept me company all week. The place fit my needs perfectly!
We had a great time throughout our stay. Loved the eggs and the grounds, the comfortable accommodations, and friendly host!
Lauren and Rick were super friendly and easy-going hosts, and their place was just right, plus more better! First off, they pre-stocked the kitchen with some fruit, eggs (from the hens in the backyard), english muffins, butter, coffee... Second, and most impressive, the backyard was a hidden Hawaiian paradise, where Rick had built 5 tiki huts in and around the hot tub, a fire pit, a pond, a ping pong table, a bocce ball court ... jeeze the list goes on. It was a really cool place and Lauren and Rick were just as cool. Tons to do in the surrounding areas, whether it be hiking, biking, or beer/wine drinking. Highly recommended!
What a great place to spend a getaway weekend! The location is convenient for exploring gorgeous Sonoma county, but you might find it hard to pull yourself away from Lauren and Rick's amazing tiki backyard. The hot tub and grill were perfect relaxing in the evening, and the fresh eggs were such a treat! Inside, the studio was clean, nicely decorated, and equipped with everything you might need. All around, this is the perfect place for a romantic weekend. Rick and Lauren were great hosts and I hope to get a chance to stay at the hideaway again.
Lauren N Ricks place was wonderful. Perfectly set up and clean :) would definitely come back.
Rick and Lauren were very hospitable and they've created an amazing space - I'm just disappointed we didn't get to take more advantage of the terrific backyard space!
Rick and Lauren's place is crazy wonderful. A true oasis in the middle of Santa Rosa. We really enjoyed our stay and were really able to relax and recharge there, even with our 9 month old baby. They were lovely hosts and we would highly recommend staying at their space. Thanks again!

We had a great stay with Lauren and Rick! Their hideaway was perfect for our trip to Sonoma Valley. Lauren and Rick were really fantastic hosts, and the eggs from their chickens were so fresh and delicious! I would definitely recommend staying with them, and thanks Lauren and Rick for having us stay with you in your studio and helping us have such a great trip
