About this listing
I rent an upstairs suite which has three bedrooms, a living room, and one full bathroom. The kitchen/dining room for continental breakfast (which is shared with me) is downstairs. Please see my pictures. My fee includes a 12% occupancy tax.
I love my mid-century modern home. I've decorated it with early 60's furniture and decor. The three upstairs bedrooms (two queen beds, one double) are available to rent. The space can comfortably accommodate 6 people. There's also an upstairs sitting room with TV and games, and an upstairs bathroom. I live in a downstairs suite and use the downstairs bath and kitchen. I serve coffee, tea, juice, toast and jam, yogurt, and granola in the mornings. Come join me and I'll tell you what I know about Sonoma County. My house is near the Joe Rodota bike trail if your a cycling enthusiast, and near the intersection of the east-west and the north-south freeways in Sonoma County if you're driving: really an ideal location from which to explore the coast, Wine Country, and the Redwoods.
Everything listed above, and I have a patio out back.
Interaction with Guests
I love to chat with new people, and I'm in retail, so I hope to be sensitive to each guest's level of desired interaction. It's entirely up to you.
The neighborhood is semi-rural, in a part of Sonoma County annexed by the city of Santa Rosa about a dozen years ago. My house is next to a housing development put in about 10 years ago, but my actual neighborhood is old Sonoma County becoming slowly gentrified. There's a junkyard (!) around the corner about a half mile away, and several small houses being slowly fixed up. I have a 400-year-old oak tree on my half-acre property, and the street is a seldom-traveled dog-leg. Quiet, but close enough to the freeway to get you around Sonoma County easily.
There is a bus stop about a half-mile away, but really the area is more conducive to automobile travel. I have plenty of off-street parking in my U-shaped driveway.
Other Things to Note
The AirBnB site won't let me show that there are three bedrooms unless I list as an entire house or apartment. I live in another part of the house, but there are three bedrooms available for guests, and one bathroom. Hope this helps.
I hope you'll feel at home in my home, and be respectful of the space. I don't allow smoking or pets. I don't want the house to be rented for parties. I have a $500.00 security deposit to cover any damages due to bad decisions or negligence on the part of the guest(s). This would include but is not limited to stoppage of plumbing pipes, setting off alarms in off-limits area of house, breakage of windows, etc. These things rarely, if ever, happen, but just in case, I need to be covered. Thanks for understanding.
