About this listing
Comfy queen sized bed in room w/ view of giant redwood trees, in sunny house with huge fenced yard, organic gardens and plentiful fruit trees. Lengthy stays encouraged (with discounts!). Contact host (red button below reviews) b-4 booking. Thanks!
This house is set amidst a garden full of fruit trees, organic veggies and flowers, and several giant redwoods. It is situated in the very walkable and friendly Santa Rosa Junior College neighborhood, with numerous restaurants and coffee shops nearby, and is not too far from the ocean and redwood forests. There is a fully equipped, spacious kitchen, (with a water filter) ready for you to use, and there are a variety of places inside and outside the house to enjoy your meals and coffee/tea. We are close to public transit and many bike trails, and you are welcome to park your bicycle in the bike shed (recycled from an old barn) and/or your car in the street in front of the house.
A lot of care has been put into creating a safe, healthy and peaceful home that I hope you will enjoy. There are hardwood floors made from sustainably harvested wood, and the walls are painted with natural, homemade clay paints.
While here, you are welcome to relax in the sun by the veggie and flower garden, or under the shade of the redwood or fruit trees, and enjoy the bounty of the garden. Sleep soundly in a room with a view of a giant redwood tree.
Please send me an inquiry prior to making a booking request. Thanks a lot!
p.s. please check out the house "rules" section regarding synthetic/chemical fragrances before booking. Thanks!
Guests have access to almost the entire house, front yard, back yard, vegetable and herb gardens, and all of the fruit trees.
Interaction with Guests
When home, I am often available to answer questions and/or chat. I am also very respectful of people's privacy and recognize that some people enjoy a quiet environment during their travels. When I am not home (which happens a lot, as I am pretty busy), guests are welcome to call me with any needs or questions. Additionally, my next door neighbors love to meet my guests, and help them out with any additional suggestions of what to do in the area, or anything else.
My neighborhood is amazing. So many beautiful and unique front yards, in a very walkable, friendly community.
We have convenient public transit. And a person can walk to downtown, and/or to nearby cafes restaurants and markets. This area is extraordinarily bike able.
Other Things to Note
House is air-conditioned naturally by huge redwood trees towering above it. Additionally, there are powerful ceiling fans in the guest room and kitchen.
In general, in order to allow for turn over of the room, check in time is anytime after 3:00 p.m. , and check out time is 12:00. But if this poses a problem, just let me know as we may be able to work something out.
You are welcome to come in and out of the house at whatever hours you want.
This is a "leave your shoes at the door" home, but if this poses a hardship, it's O.K. to just clean you shoes off really well at the door. Slippers for inside are recommended (I have extra clean ones guests can borrow! :)
Due to a sensitivity to synthetic fragrances, it would be greatly appreciated if guests could refrain from applying artificially scented colognes, after shaves, hair sprays, and perfumes (outside the house, on the way out for the day or evening, is O.K.). Essential oils and other naturally derived scents are fine. Also, I occasionally burn sage in the house. If you are uncomfortable with that, just let me know, and I will refrain from burning sage when you are here. Shampoo, body soap, and shaving cream are all provided. There is essential oils of lavender and almond in many of the soaps. Thanks!

I have a daily meditation practice, enjoy a balance of solitude and community in my life, and am currently learning to swing dance with my partner, John.
