Interaction with Guests
You have a lot of privacy here. You may see me walking my dog around the property but I keep my distance and allow you to approach me only if you want to.
It's very quiet and relaxing here. The bamboo is beautiful and fun to take a walk through it. You will have your own private parking space directly across from the studio so you never have to worry about parking!
You need a car as we are in the country. However, we are 5 minutes from Cotati and 10 minutes from Petaluma so a lot of restaurants and stores are accessible from here.
Other Things to Note
The studio is comfortable year round. It stays very cool in the summer when it's hot as it's shaded by a large tree. It's nice and warm in the winter as we have radiant heat in the floors.

Carol's place was fantastic and better than it was pictured. They own a landscaping business so the property is full of exotic plants and tons of bamboo.
Carol is an excellent host, the place was very clean and well decorated with all the necessary accoutrements you would ever need. My only regret is I didn't have the pleasure of meeting her in person.
The host made us feel sooo welcome! They provided some wonderful fruit and scones not to mention the fresh chicken eggs from their free roaming chickens for our first breakfast so we would not have to rush into town to go shopping.
They were both receptive, very warm and friendly. It was more than what we were hoping for.
The photos were very nice but when we arrived they did not do the bungalow and the grounds justice. It was amazing.
The neighborhood was rural farm lands surrounding us and it was so quite and quaint, we just loved it.
Great place, and very welcoming. Carol left lots of breakfast things to enjoy. Cozy and perfect for our needs.
We had the best time at the bungalow. It's clean, which is my biggest thing, among other things. Quaint, the perfect size, and had a picture of sunflowers (my favorite) on the wall.
I never got to meet Carol unfortunately but she was super helpful by phone to let us know everything we needed to know.
She even left us some breakfast food and milk and some other essentials like clean towels, shampoo, and toothpaste.
I had a great experience. I can't wait to visit the bungalow again in the future.
Also - for those who want to take advantage of wine country, this is a great place to stay. Sonoma and Napa are pretty close so it's totally doable.
Thanks again, Carol! I will definitely be back!
Carol was extremely welcoming! She gave us a thorough orientation to the studio (including the various challenging to find light switches), as well as stocked the fridge with delicious organic berries and fresh eggs from her free-range chicken. When we had a plumbing issue, Carol was totally on top of it, getting a plumber out to fix it before we returned from a wine tasting excursion. The studio was well appointed, cozy, and located centrally between Santa Rosa (Russian River brewing - a must for the beer lover) and Sonoma, and only a 20-30 minute drive to amazing State Parks such as Anadale and Jack London.
We had such an amazing time at the Bamboo Bungalow! We were in town for a wedding, but really enjoyed our down time here. The property was wonderful to walk around, and the bungalow itself was super cute and comfortable. Also, the commute to Sonoma was short and sweet.
We didn't actually get to meet the hosts, but they were great. Their instructions for the wifi and the ins and outs of the bungalow were super clear. Also, they provided us with fresh eggs, fruit, coffee and muffins, more than enough for breakfast for two across our two day stay.
If I am ever in wine country again I will be looking up Carol & Andy for sure!
The bamboo bungalow is a quiet oasis in the agricultural area near Petaluma and Sonoma. We enjoyed the peace and quiet of this well appointed studio nestled in among a bamboo nursery. The hosts have thought of your every need and have provided a tastefully decorated and comfortable retreat complete with a lovely kitchen stocked with breakfast goodies, a lovely bathroom and shower, a comfy bed, Dish TV, a library of books, local tourist info, and more!
About the Host, Carol
