About This Listing
An hour north of San Francisco, house is in a charming country setting with stunning views- yet only 5 minutes from downtown Sebastopol. You will enjoy the peacefulness of country living close to trails, and a short drive to local beaches & wineries.
Take time to relax in the hot tub after a bike ride through the local vineyards and apple orchards or after a 10 minute walk to the local, well reviewed Taft Street Winery for wine tasting. Make sure to take time in the evening to sit on the wraparound deck, take in the beautiful view and enjoy the sunset behind the distant hills.
The open kitchen is spacious, organized and filled with afternoon sunlight.
Much of the house is eco-friendly, with cork floors, wool carpets, and 100% cotton bedding.
My house is warm, clean, organized, well- loved and lived in.
And because this is my family home (we live here when it's not rented), I ask only guests interested in taking care of it consider staying here. Wild parties aren't a match here. Thank you.
Sorry, no TV
The approx 1600 sq. ft house sits on .75 acres and guests have access to the upper half of it while our neighbors enjoy the lower half.
Interaction with Guests
I will be meeting you to give you the key.
Some things I love about my neighborhood include the open sky, the view, the rural feel, the nearby working family farm, the apple orchards, the long narrow single lane road approaching the property. Ok, the vineyards too :)
Like our neighbors, we are on well water that although filtered can contain more minerals than city water.
Use of 4 bicycles included -- 2 adults and 2 kids sized
Guests can walk to the very popular Underwood and Willowood restaurants in Graton (40 minutes - some uphill). It's also a very short walk to Taft winery and a 5 minute drive to downtown Sebastopol.

Would love if dirty shoes stayed off the carpet.
My friends and I loved Denise's house in Sebastopol and we highly recommend it!
The neighborhood is peaceful and beautiful -- think dogs wandering up and down the street and grape vines along the street -- and the town of Sebastopol is nearby and really cool. The house is very comfortable, the hot tub is great, and we loved cooking in the well stocked kitchen.
All the information in the listing is accurate, and Denise responded to questions very quickly and was extremely kind. We all left wanting to come back.
My family and I had a wonderful stay at Denise's place. It was perfect for our weekend trip, centrally located, easy to find, and had everything we needed.
We loved the house! Felt like home right when we open the door, Denise made it very easy to check-in/out. Rooms were clean and nicely laid out. Love the chickens and the organic eggs in the morning! My daughter had lots of fun with the kid gears in the garage, electric quad bike was a huge hit. Love the great star gazing at night too :)
Denise has been lovely, very responsive and accommodating. She even left a few beers and eggs available for us, which was highly appreciated after a long drive!
As far as the house is concerned it is comfortable, perfectly clean and well located for wine tasting. The only remark I would have would be regarding the decoration - if you're looking for a modern fancy place, this house is not the one to go to... But if you're looking for open spaces, comfortable beds and warmth, I would definitely recommend this place.
It was so wonderful to be at Denise's adorable house! It was cozy and charming and a five minute walk from a great winery! Our only regret was that we had to leave! The couches and beds were very comfortable and she left us some beer and yummy chocolate! I would definitely stay there again.

About the Host, Denise
I have been very lucky in life, getting the chance to travel and live in dozens of international countries. Travel and really living internationally has been my truest passion besides my love of people and all their diversities. I grew up in Palo Alto, California and now have landed in the beautiful wine country of Sebastopol.
I can get around with my passable Kindergarten level Spanish and I also speak a tiny bit of Bahasa Indonesian.
I've become a bit of an Airbnb nerd of late. I really believe the world is a better place because of all this. My world continues to grow...
