Escape to our 3 acre park like setting surrounded by world class wineries and restaurants. This lovely five bedroom house is ten minutes from the Russian River, an hour North of SF, and half an hour from the coast. Lounge by the solar heated pool, relax in the hot tub, and de-stress in the steam sauna. Enjoy your favorite movie on our high definition surround sound entertainment system, and choose from our large collection of DVDs and Music. Wireless high speed internet access is provided everywhere on the property and a guest computer is provided for your use .
Each bedroom has a bed that sleeps two. Bed sizes include one King size, three full-size and one fold-down full sized feather bed couch.
Stay in and cook in our gourmet kitchen or BBQ outside. Plenty of parking space is available. Hiking, walking, and cycling trails are just some of the abundant pastimes and as a 30 year resident of Sonoma County, I am happy to share with you the flavor of Sonoma county and help you find those out- of-the-way locations.
We had a phenomenal stay in Mark's Sebastopol oasis! We're a fairly low-key group of 9 women in our 20s-30s, celebrating my sister's bachelorette. (Only mentioning that we're low-key because we didn't have any problems keeping noise down late at night, which I know is a concern because of some neighbors nearby-- we enjoyed the hot tub at night, but weren't too rowdy, and in bed by midnight!)
The house itself was lovely and clean, with plenty of room to spread out and relax, and to all hang out together. A bonus was the large open kitchen, where some of us could prepare meals while still being a part of the group hanging out. We also used the big grill outside.
The outdoor space was gorgeous, just like the photos. The pool & hot-tub were very clean & in working condition. It was hot enough outside to dip in the pool, but still too chilly to really swim (it is solar heated, and there hadn't been enough sun to get it going by saturday). We all brought extra towels, per Mark's recommendation.
There is little/no cell service at the house, but Mark provided us with his wifi password so we were able to plan ahead & coordinate. It's also really nice that the town of Sebastopol is nearby, so we were able to pick up groceries at Safeway/Whole Foods.
We had planned to explore Sebastopol on Saturday, but ended up hanging out by the pool all afternoon because it was so lovely & relaxing. Some other fun things we did in the area: in-house private belly dancing lesson from Seba @ Wildcard Bellydance; delicious farm tour at Full House Farm; dinner at Underwood Bar & Bistro in Graton; treatments at Osmosis Day Spa.
Thanks for a wonderful weekend!
We loved Mark's place, it was quite and homey. All the bedrooms were great. And it is super close to winery's .
We had an amazing stay at this place. The property is beautiful and well kept. Each room has its own character and the kitchen is well equipped. Mark was an excellent host, responsive and did everything he could to make sure we had a comfortable stay. Highly recommend the place and would love to come back!
Mark has an amazing house and property. Stayed there with 9 of my friends and we had a fantastic time. Mark even provided us with some recommendations of wineries to go to which turned out to be fantastic! Great hospitality and very flexible -- highly recommend Mark!
This home was beautiful and the private pool/jacuzzi were a highlight. I stayed here with a group of friends for a Bachelorette Party for my sister and we could not have been happier with the amount of space, privacy, and overall comfort this home provided. I would definitely return!
Eleven of us stayed here for my best friend's bachelorette party and everything about this place was perfect! It was originally a house for apple orchard workers. This area is gorgeous and warm.
We actually had plans to go out at night and for brunch but we never got around to it because we were having such a good time at the house.The house was spacious, comfortable, really nice. The pool was the perfect temp and loved that it was salt water. The hot tub worked amazing. What I was so happy about was the dry sauna because the bride was Finnish and sauna is important to Finnish culture. It was originally broken but the owner found a way to repair it for us to use! Other highlights include the steam shower inside, the gas bbq grill and the gazebo outside where we ate breakfast. Gorgeous kitchen, very cute and comfortable rooms, nice bathrooms. Very easy to get in touch with the owner and ask any questions and he's very responsive. Everyone had the best time, it really could not have been any better!
Mark was a fantastic host - met me when he said he would, was quick on email, answered all my questions, etc.
The property is beautiful - the pool and hot tub are lovely, especially on a hot day. His back yard sits next to an official Open Space, so when you look backwards, all you see are more trees. It's an ideal location for a bbq dinner. The house itself is also very nice. It's clear Mark takes great care of it. Thanks!
A group of 6 of us spent the night here when in the area for a wedding. Couldn't have been easier, more convenient and comfortable. Wish we could have spent more time to enjoy the beautiful property and pool. Will have to come back for a weekend sometime.
We were a group of 9 people, the house and the host were amazing !
We really enjoyed everything in this beautiful house with this incredible warm pool, next to the Hot Tub.
We will be back there soon for a longer experience !
Mark is a great host. We had the house for a week and he came in to change sheets and refresh towels halfway though the week. The house is very comfortable and well equipped. Highly recommend.
