Sweet and cozy trailer, perfect for solo or coupled travelers. Our large, shady backyard has lots of flowers and fruit trees, help yourself! Super convenient location - an easy walk to historic Railroad Square and more! Please read on for more detail
This little trailer has been completely refurbished on the inside, making it a surprising gem! Private access through the driveway, full use of our large backyard where you can chit-chat with our three chickens while you relax. Our dog Mesa is super friendly (though her 'hello!' bark sounds different, she's a lover) and may want you to throw her ball...don't!! Unless you have several hours to spend on it :-)
The bathroom is super easy to get to and just inside the back door of the main house - don't worry, it's away from the bedrooms so you won't disturb anyone if you come in late! The shower does not have a bathtub, FYI.
Depending on the time of year, we have grapefruit, fig, cherry, plum, walnut, persimmon and lemon trees - you are more than welcome to munch on anything you can reach!
Coffee & tea provided - enjoy in the trailer, at your own private table outside, or in the backyard.
Space heater, fan, and plenty of books can be found in the trailer to contribute to your coziness.
Please note that by being a 'cozy' trailer, the double bed may not be comfortable for very tall folks - one guest at 5'10" said it was a perfect fit. If you're a side sleeper or spooner, it'll be no problem!
**Please see our note about visiting with pets, listed in 'House Rules'**

bikes (one guy, one gal) with locks but not night-ready (aka the lights are wonky)
Interaction with Guests
We are happy to answer questions and make your stay as comfortable as we can! We can share our favorite spots to eat, wine taste, hear live music, watch a film, take in some incredible theater, or anything else you might want to do while you're visiting our glorious area. Most of these things can be found within walking distance. If you'd like to go further, we have bikes that you're welcome to borrow if they're available, or we can give you scenic-route driving directions.
We live in the main house and use the office (by bathroom) and back yard, so you might see us around*, but we are very respectful of your privacy and want you to enjoy your getaway to the fullest. Sometimes that means napping all day, sometimes it means being out & about! However you spend it, we hope you enjoy your time here.
*We love kids and have some of our own! They aren't always here, but if you'd like your kid-free quiet time guaranteed, please inquire when booking as the timing might not be right for that :-)
Located in the Olive Park neighborhood right by the Creek Trail. Tree-lined streets with lovely Victorian homes, with a park and playground nearby.
Easy walking or biking to so many things! Great restaurants ranging from Thai to taco trucks, high-end French to simple pub fare.
Hop on a bike and head over to the award-winning Russian River Brewing Company for beer that people line up for (they have great pizza, too), or just stroll down to the awesome Flying Goat coffee shop for a pick-me-up!
We are two and a half blocks from Railroad Square, a half-block from the creek trail/bike path (which extends from Santa Rosa to Sebastopol), are just off of both Hwy 101 & Hwy 12 and close to many bus stops.
Other Things to Note
This is not a rural setting, so while we've tried to make our back yard and your sleeping quarters as relaxing as we can, there are still city noises and traffic sounds from the nearby freeway.
Santa Rosa can get chilly at night - especially during the fall and winter months. The trailer has a space heater and we're happy to provide extra blankets, but please be aware that it has the potential to get nippy out there.
Finally, getting to the bathroom is easy but requires walking through our office/laundry room. Sometimes we are in there doing office-y or laundry-ish things, FYI
Pets accepted - as long as they don't try to eat our chickens! **PLEASE NOTE** We absolutely love pets, but given their furry nature they do require more cleaning. Because of this we will be adding an additional $6 to your reservation cost, FYI - thanks for understanding!
Smoking OUTSIDE ONLY, please. We appreciate you not leaving cig butts, etc lying around - the chickens will try to eat them!
We ask that you please be respectful in terms of noises, etc - the general rule is that 10pm is the loudness cutoff - Thank you!
We had a wonderful stay in the cozy little trailer. It felt like home, and the hosts (kids, dogs, chickens, and adults alike) were very helpful and friendly. It was hard to leave!
Such a cute spot! I was only in town one night, but this place totally fit the bill. Clean, well maintained, welcoming. Also, very close to Russian River Brewing company, another bonus for my trip. Would stay here again in the future if ever traveling through the area again.
For our first experience with Airbnb we couldn't be happier! The neighborhood was very charming, close to a park and a trail near the river and within walking distance from restaurants and shopping. The trailer was immaculately clean when we showed up and though we only got to meet Amanda and Paul briefly they made us feel very welcomed and incredibly comforrable. We are very much look forward to booking this rad little trailer the next time we are in Sonoma County. Thanks again. Cheers!
We loved out stay in the lil' trailer! Amanda and Paul were awesome and location was perfect - an easy 15 minute walk to downtown. We can't wait to visit again.
Amanda and Paul were extremely hospitable and made a great experience for us. We requested to stay on the day of and they had no problem getting their lovely trailer ready in time. I told Amanda that my Fiance and I had gotten engaged the day before and they gave us a bottle of wine as a present! The location is great (really close to downtown and great restaurants/cafes) and their property, the trailer, and their backyard are extra cute and welcoming. We would definitely stay again.
My stay was brief, but I found the little camper to be a delightful place to stay in a great neighborhood and I would certainly stay again. And I totally loved Mesa
Amanda and Paul were great hosts. This was a perfect first time airbnb experience with clear directions, a great location, and the cutest trailer I've ever seen. The bed was comfortable, the yard was adorable, and the decorations and style of the trailer made me feel right at home.
Hi! We are Paul and Amanda, and we love all kinds of things - travel, reading, writing, wine, meals with friends, gatherings in the backyard, gardening, animals, and beach days, to name a few.
Between the two of us we have traveled to Hawaii, Mexico, France, South Korea, Australia, and tons of places big and small right here in the US. Our favorite way to travel is to just immerse ourselves in the local culture - we love meeting people from other places and sharing stories!
