About this listing
This private studio apartment is modern and cozy. You are near the pool and nestled under a large walnut tree. There is space for you to store your bikes and luggage. You can walk or drive downtown in minutes to the Russian River Brewery.
The studio is a newly built unit that on the outside looks like an authentic 1940's garage, and on the inside is a modern and quaint studio apartment. In the Summer months you can enjoy our backyard and swimming pool (with a great tube style water slide!) The unit is detached from the main house and very well insulated. I think you'll see from our many wonderful reviews that guests love our poolside studio.
The studio is well equipped with all of the cooking utensils you will need, fridge, gas stove, microwave, toaster, etc... You will find basics like spices and oil, sugar, etc... There is a French Press coffee maker and a tea selection (please bring your own coffee).
There is a queen bed and a full size fold out sofa in the studio. There is also a fold out full size foam mat, so there is plenty of room for 5- 6 people to sleep!
Our home is located under large very old walnut trees, this brings shade and the occasional spider and bug.
The pool area & pool house is shared between myself and my family and other Airbnb guests who are staying in the house, but you will find that it is rarely used and you will most likely experience much privacy poolside.
** Please note that to access the bathroom you will be stepping outside the apartment for literally one step. This is via the pool room, not the outdoors. The bathroom is only yours, not shared with any other guests.
*Confirmed guests PLEASE read your "Itinerary" once your stay is booked so you know how to check yourself in, where to park, etc. This property has self check in instructions.
There is a market 1 block away, Santa Rosa's Historic Railroad Square is a mere 8 block walk, and downtown Santa Rosa (RUSSIAN RIVER BREWERY) is a mile away- a 20 minute walk.
Our listings include a 12% local "hotel tax" for stays shorter than 30 days, this is included in the nightly price already- not added on later.
You may park in the driveway unless there is already a car there, in that case park on the street in front of my house or a neighbors house.
Your studio has a full kitchen and bath (no bathtub, just a shower). You also have access to the shared pool room space, and the pool itself.
Please ask before inviting guests over to swim.
Interaction with Guests
I don't interact much with studio guests, if we run into each other we just chat for a few moments. I am happy to be of assistance so you are free to message me anytime, I am right next door. You might see other Airbnb guests, me and my family, or my neighbors during pool season at the pool, and in the small pool room by your unit. The pool is a big hit with all and you are very welcome to join in on swimming time anytime!
I love that my neighborhood is so close to Hwy 101 & Hwy 12, Historic Railroad Square and Downtown. Our street is very secluded and private, a dead end road that many locals don't know it exists even though it's so close to town. I am friends with many of my neighbors and feel incredibly safe here.
You are very close to Hwy 101 which runs North & South, Hwy 12 that runs East & West, and within walking distance to downtown Santa Rosa. Santa Rosa has Lyft & Uber services as well as public transportation and traditional taxi cabs. There is little wait for taxi services and there is a bus stop a block from my house and the main bus terminal is a 20 minute walk. You can easily find wine tour info, many of the tour busses pick up at the Hyatt which is a 10 minute walk from here.
THE DOG: The most important rule is do not let my dog out any side gates in the back yard! She is very excited and friendly and will run up to the gate when you arrive, you must enter rather quickly so she doesn’t slip out! Her name is Olive.
THE CAT: She can go in or out as she pleases. Her name is Jewell.
NOISE: Please be respectful of other guests, myself, and our neighbors and keep it down after 10:00 PM and before 9:00 AM. Be especially aware of how much noise you make in the driveway since the 2 guest rooms inside the main house are right on the driveway.
The pictures of the studio (on the inside) are different than how it was setup. There is a larger table inside which was nice for meals and playing cards. There are no windows inside the studio - which wasn't really a problem - the air just got stagnant while sleeping. An extra fan or two would solve this. The bathroom requires you to walk thru a "shared space" - again not a big deal, but be warned you won't be strutting to and from the studio in your towel. The pool was relaxing and a great feature, especially as we had just run a marathon the day before.
The poolside studio was just as charming as it was made out to be. We loved the weekend we spent at Justine's home. She gave us plenty of space, but it was nice knowing she wasn't far if we needed anything. A morning dip in the pool was the perfect way for me to start the day.
This was one of our favorite airbnb stays of all time. The poolside studio is superbly decorated and equipped with everything you need for a homey stay. We really enjoyed making pancakes in the morning and reading by the fantastic pool before heading out to wine country. The studio was quiet, private, relaxed and within walking distance of some great restaurants. Justine was also a quick and thoughtful communicator.
The cottage was a great find and a perfect fit for our recent stay in Napa. The space was bright and airy and very comfortable. I really appreciate little touches like having some condiments on hand and all the utensils one would need to pull a meal together. The yard was inviting and we really made use of the pool in the 100 degree weather. To comment on something that was brought up in another review, the bathroom is technically outside of the space, but it is 1 foot out of the space, really as if it was in the hallway of a house so to me it still felt private. Justine was friendly and welcoming - overall a great location and an enjoyable place to stay.
Fantastic! Not only were Justine and Olive, her adorable dog, super welcoming and helpful, the studio was a perfect place for our mini vacation. Every single thing in and outside of the studio was tastefully chosen, but with some character. The pool was an incredible bonus too. And we had the perfect amount of privacy -- we always knew if we needed help we could get it, but if we just wanted to relax by the pool with some beer/wine, we had the whole place to ourselves too. We cannot wait to go back. Thank you Justine, see you in a few months!
We arrived and had all the information we needed in order to get ourselves into the property, set up, and settled in. The room was so adorable and quaint, exactly what I was anticipating. We sat by the pool, read the books housed in the apartment, and cuddled with the sweet kitten. The neighborhood was convenient to the downtown, located down a quiet side street. The property perfectly suited our needs.
We absolutely loved our stay here from start to finish! It was quiet and felt secluded with the private yard and pool area. The style of the studio was adorable, with bright colors and vintage details. The pool was awesome. It was great to have a private bathroom and fully equipped kitchen. The location allowed us to explore Santa Rosa and nearby Healdsburg easily. We felt totally comfortable and thoroughly enjoyed our stay here - would highly recommend it!!
