About this listing
A great private place to get away for a vacation or just a weekend. Perfect place to spend your Wine Country vacation or just a weekend get-away! A 500 square foot private 1 bedroom granny in a quiet, safe neighborhood.
This is one of the best places to enjoy the Sonoma County experience.

The couch turns into a twin hide-a-bed. The bathroom has a shower/tub combo. The living room has room to sit and enjoy conversations about the fun you had today. You can come and go as you please with all the privacy you need. There’s a private side yard for you to sit and enjoy your morning coffee OR if you don’t mind our little dogs you can sit in our backyard and enjoy the koi pond. Occasionally you can be treated to a hot air balloon landing in the neighborhood!!!
The granny unit is separate from the main house and has its own keyless entry. You provide your own personal 4-digit code for the lock. You can come and go as you please.
Interaction with Guests
We don't want to intrude on your stay here and we try respect your privacy. We normally will only meet you in passing. That being said, we are at your disposal while you are here to help with any arrangements, suggestions or anything you need. Please feel free to come over, knock on our door and say HI.
Santa Rosa is a bustling community with lots of activities, shopping, parks and hiking/biking trails. We are very close to the Joe Rodota Trail if you would enjoy an 8+ mile bike ride through west Santa Rosa and Sebastopol. We even have a private yard to store your bike for safety should you bring or rent one. We provide information and brochures for all the fun activities this area has to offer.
We are very close to the Sonoma County wine area just north on US 101. To the east is the Napa Valley with all it has to offer. South is the charm of Petaluma and the excitement of San Francisco - less than an hour’s drive from here. To the west just 30 minutes is the beautiful Sonoma Coast and scenic drive up and down Hwy 1. We are 7 minutes from the new Graton Casino!!!!!
A car is a must but we are within walking distance to public transportation if you need it. We have bus routes available. If you’re a bike rider, just down the street a 5-minute walk is Getaway Adventures where you can book a bicycling adventure. We also have information on car and motorcycle rentals. Just ask us and we’ll get whatever information you need.
Other Things to Note
We use scents in the apartment to make it smell nice. We don't feel they are too much but if you have a sensitivity to scents please let us know and we'll remove them prior to your arrival. The place comfortably accommodates 2. A third can use the pullout twin sleeper love seat but more than that is just not practical. Please don't insta-book if you have more than 3 guests. Please contact us to discuss more than 3.
PLEASE NOTE: The City of Santa Rosa is requiring a 9% "Transient Occupancy Tax" and a 3% "Tourism" tax. An envelope will be left for you with the amount owed written on the front. We accept cash, check or PayPal (ask for account info).
No smoking on the premises. If you want to walk down the street for a smoke you are more than welcome to do that.
No pets allowed.
This is a quiet neighborhood so please no loud music or excessive noise after 10pm or before 8am.
If you need ANYTHING, just let us know!!
The living room has a Dish satellite TV, a DVR with 6-program recording capability and DVD player. The couch is a twin hide-a-bed.
We are both retired and love to travel in our RV and go cruising whenever we can. We decided to convert our granny unit into a space for travelers. We look forward to meeting you and helping to make your trip to Sonoma County a memorable one.
