Wondering how six of us would or could enjoy this family holiday along the coast of Bodega Bay . . . until we arrived at THIS cozy cabin. Nestled among a "Sherwood Forest" of trees, we just followed the welcoming lights to the front door and after stepping into such delightful accommodations, amenities, and ambience . . . there was no doubt that we were all going to have a WONDERFUL time!
Beautiful and wonderful! We had everything we needed and more. It was really nice and I would definitely stay there again. The area is so relaxing and calming - good nature retreat for city goers.
A beautiful setting and a very well thought out house and outdoor space to take advantage of the views wherever you choose to sit, indoors or outdoors - brilliant.. The house is well equipped and every area is comfortable. There is plenty of space for a group of 3 couples. You need to drive if you want to go out to dinner as the house is 3 miles from the town of Occidental. The host was available for any questions by email ( our choice) and phone and responded very quickly. The only bad thing was having to leave and
The house was perfect for our Sonoma County retreat. It was a great landing pad for us for our friends' wedding off Coleman Valley Rd. We loved the hammock in the back yard - it was the best place to enjoy the warm afternoon sun when we arrived. We would definitely stay here again!
Derek was incredibly helpful & accommodating, and the cabin itself was absolutely sublime. Thoughtful design, with lots of individual feeling spaces to hang out in – the living room in front of the fireplace – the (larger than the images hint at) patio – the hot tub – nooks and meadows throughout the property. Landscaping is stellar. Furniture and objects are the perfect mix of modern design sensibility and homey comfort. Couldn’t have had a better experience all-around. Highly recommended.
I'm kind of having trouble focusing on my words here because the picture of the deck is making me so nostalgic! We had such an incredible time during our stay. Derek's place is so comfortable and has all the best amenities (hot tub, firplace, 2 decks with spectacular views...what more could you want?). We immediately felt right at home at the place. Instructions for everything we wanted to use were perfectly clear and you couldn't dream up a more gorgeous setting. It was the perfect house for the trip and renting from Derek was so easy. (Guest Tip: if you go with funny people make sure to play the board game "Loaded Questions" found in the living room. It is ridiculous and awesome!) Thank you Derek!! We'll be back!
A wonderful retreat. A simple and comfortable cabin perfect for a family or two couples with a gorgeous yard in a fantastic setting that is really away from it all. One note: while you could fit more than 4 people I'm not sure I would try.
Place has all you need as a base to head out into wine country or to stay in in the rain and read, play games, whatever you like. Clear communication from Derek made finding the place and using its contents very straightforward and we had a lovely time. Highly recommended and a great first experience for us using airbnb.
My friends and I enjoyed staying here very much, and we all agreed we'd stay here again. The house is exceptionally clean, aesthetically pleasing and well-organized. There is a beautiful view from the spacious back deck and gorgeous grounds and a garden. The hot tub was great too. It's just a couple of minutes away from the cute Occidental downtown. I definitely recommend it!
This is a beautiful, well-appointed house with a great deck, and easy access to Russian River and the Sonoma Coast. A very relaxing place, enhanced by the efforts of the host, Derek, to make a visit frictionless. His local tips are spot on.
I would highly recommend Derek's house to anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing getaway in the beautiful Sonoma Coast. We went up with a couple friends for Memorial Day weekend and had the best time staying at the house. The house itself is beautiful, simple, and serene. The garden, hammock, view of the ocean, and outdoor spa make this house stand out amongst others. The kitchen is perfect for cooking, and the outdoor table and chairs made the patio a great place to have brunch in the mornings. The town of Occidental is darling, as are all of the little towns around the area. We went to Tomales bay Oyster Co. one day, which was a beautiful 45-minute drive, and another day went to a winery and bakery about 10 minutes down the road from the house. Derek provides a book of activities and restaurants to experience around the area, which was extremely helpful in deciding what to do. We had such a great time and would love to go back again! Thanks again to Derek and his wife for providing the perfect house for a relaxing long weekend.
