Elegant and comfortable bedroom suite with designated off-street parking for one car, private entrance through guest's large private yard, and private bath with deep soaking tub.

The space
Welcome to my calm garden oasis just 4 blocks (a 7-10 minute walk ) from downtown Sebastopol with all the friendly ambiance for which our small town is known. Enter through your large, private yard to the elegant open-space bedroom suite.

Your comfortable queen bed is fitted with soft, organic, 100% cotton sheets and a cozy down comforter (or blanket and spread in the summer). A super comfy down couch, vintage mid-century marble coffee table, reading lights, and a small closet are on the opposite wall. The kitchenette offers a Chemex coffee pot, electric kettle, toaster, microwave, and compact refrigerator. I provide tea, and various sweeteners, half & half, ice, soda water, and our local Retrograde coffee roasted right here in Sebastopol. An infrared heater keeps things warm and a fan cools things down.

The stone and marble bathroom is furnished with shampoo, conditioner, body wash, epsom salts, hair dryer and various small necessities. The deep soaking tub is a great place to unwind and luxuriate after a day spent exploring our beautiful area.

As I have created Candy's Place as a calm, relaxing place to unwind and let go of work, my wifi is not of the "lightening fast" variety. An eero system boosts the signal and download speed varies from 21.5-22.8 mbps while upload speed is between 1.4-1.7 mbps. Please factor this into your requirements when booking.

Where you’ll be

Sebastopol, California, United States

Your suite is 4 blocks from downtown Sebastopol, where you will find fun shopping, delicious cocktails and food, wine tasting, pubs, the farmers' market on Sunday mornings, and the friendly ambiance of our beautiful town. A walking/biking trail liesa few steps from my home which you can follow to Forestville in one direction and (through town) to Santa Rosa in the other. Your suite is a 10 minute walk to the Laguna de Santa Rosa. There you will find a scenic, easy walking trail through the Laguna environs. In summer, when the bridge is up across the Laguna, you can even walk to Balletto winery to taste their award winning wines! The Sebastopol Center for the Arts is a 12 minute walk through downtown and presents numerous art exhibitions, musical performances, classes and events in Visual, Performing, Literary, Ceramics, Open Studios and Film Arts throughout the year.

I moved to Sebastopol over 32 years ago when I bought my 1912 farmhouse. My two daughters were born and raised here but are now grown and I am enjoying the return to myself. I love to walk in nature, cook for myself, friends & family, work in my garden and create a beautiful environment for myself and my guests. While I joined Airbnb to help support myself in retirement, the best part of hosting is meeting people and providing an enjoyable experience. I love Sebastopol and am happy to share it with others.

During your stay

I truly enjoy meeting my guests and love interacting as much as they desire. I am always available via text for questions, recommendations, or local advice. I live in the front of the house, so am often around.
