Please, no smoking indoors. Outdoors- if I can't tell, you are OK! I will be happy to show you how to operate the gas fire pit, waterfall over the fish pond, lights in the tiki huts and how to access the eggs. I do live here too, but respect your privacy and will be unobtrusive during your visit.
Please try to leave the studio in the condition you found it, I.e. Please wash your own dishes. I have provided everything you need to do so.
I look forward to meeting you.
The Hideaway was a great place to relax during my two week crazy school schedule. After a 12 hour day of classes I came back to a warm cozy cottage to unwind. I enjoyed walking through his beautifully landscaped 1/2 acre retreat. Rick is very nice. He had fresh eggs for me...yum...along with a bottle of local wine.
Thank you Rick for your hospitality. I hope to be back in June
Rick's beautiful space and kind hospitality provided for a wonderful weekend. He was available if we needed, but left us to ourselves completely. He has a wonderful space and a kind smile to welcome you in. Very lucky to have spent our time in his space!
Rick was great from beginning to end in regards to making us feel welcome at his perfect little oasis he has put so much work into. My husband and I live only 30 min. away but the location to Ricks home offers many places to visit and explore. Although just spending time in the beautifully landscaped grounds Ricks place offers was enough to make us feel like we were on a tropical island. When you come stay at Ricks I recommend taking full advantage of the grounds. My husband and I brought along some games to play and shopped at the local market down the street that offers lots of yummy treats with it's bakery,deli and specialty hot foods and cheeses. Once we had all the goodies we sat in one of the tiki huts that sheltered us from the rain we had and really had a great time! The hot tub is private and right outside your door! Rick provided us with a great selection of coffee, english muffins and fresh eggs from the chickens he has! You really need to stay here when visiting Sonoma County and the surrounding areas. We will definitely be returning to Ricks! You really can't beat it! Thanks Rick!
The Hideaway was the perfect spot for our long weekend in Santa Rosa. It's comfortable, homey and convenient to many local attractions. Rick was a wonderful and attentive host and we can't wait to stay here again!
The hideaway was amazing. The gardens were beautiful and secluded, the hot tub was a great bonus, and the house itself was clean and comforting. We had an excellent stay for our first airbnb. The Hideaway itself is a gem of a Santa Rosa!
We most definitely enjoyed our stay with Rick! Because it was a very cold weekend, we were unable to enjoy all of the outdoor amenities we had hoped to use, however the property was beautiful and I'm sure had the weather been better we would have loved to use them. Rick was very accommodating, even with some last minute changed to our original request. I would definitely recommend staying at Ricks place!
A great little spot. Rick is a wonderful and very thoughtful host. The place was clean, quiet and beautiful. The whole property is very well cared for, and is just a very magical little place. Rick left us breakfast goodies in the fridge with fresh eggs. Absolutely fabulous!
I have been working on improving the grounds over the past 20 years that I have lived here. I am a grocery manager, personal trainer and have my own landscaping company. My goal is for you to visit and feel you are in a tropical paradise. Aside from the weather, I think I can come pretty close!
