Nestled in a redwood forest, this private entrance room has a queen bed, full bath. It is the perfect retreat for wine country access and Occidental biking and hiking.
The room is steps away from an outside hot tub, deck, and creek.
In the room, there is a private bathroom with shower and toilet, and a refrigerator.
Free wi-fi and no television or cell service. Easy access parking. We are city dwellers who moved to the country so we could plant a garden and raise our child.
Things are quiet here. Birds, foxes and rabbits also share the property. We don't have any visible neighbors, and are surrounded by trees. Our driveway is 1/3 of a mile long, and we often take walks up it to visit the neighbor's horses.
We are close to Occidental (10 min), which has a few restaurants, two markets and a couple of shops. We are also close to Sebastopol and Sonoma County wine growers and wineries (18 min). Also nearby are Bodega (8 min) and Bodega Bay (18 min). Bodega is the town where The Birds was filmed, a great coffee shop and the local tavern, The Casino (not really a casino, just a bar that serves good food). And Bodega Bay has great whale watching, beaches, and hiking. Oh yeah, and we are about 25 min from Hog Island Oyster Co in Tomales/Marshall. We love to buy a bag of Oysters and shuck 'em on our deck.
On the weekends, the road we live on is filled with road bikers. They've found the little-trafficked roads with hills and beautiful scenery to be an interesting place to ride.
We provide bathrobes that guests can use to access the hot tub.
Hot tub, deck, room equipped with shower, toilet and refidgerator.
Interaction with Guests
We provide our guests with as much privacy as they desire.
Our neighborhood is quiet and our neighbors remote. We share a driveway with one neighbor but we have seen them like 10 times over the last 7 years.
You need a car to get around. We are remote.
Other Things to Note
The room has been remodeled as of May 2015 and we've put in a private bathroom and shower along with a refidgerator in the airbnb room.
We don't provide use of the main kitchen. We are house full of food allergies and kitchen preparation of certain allergens can cause a world of hurt for our family.
No loud music or pets. Our one cat goes outside sometimes, but mostly stays upstairs and never ventures into the guest room due to it's separate entrance. No smoking. Clothing is optional in the hot tub, but only clothing optional while IN the hot tub. In other words, please don't walk around the property naked. You can use the Wi-Fi but no streaming allowed due to Satellite internet.
Alissa & Jeff have truly created a magical paradise. Their home is a design marvel, nestled amongst giant redwood trees and an organic garden. It has the homey comfort of the country with the convenience of town 7 minutes away. We loved the hot tub and close access to fabulous outdoor living. We can't wait to stay there again!
Beautiful and unique place in the nature. A little piece of paradise !!! Everything is beautiful, and we loved the jacuzzi experience in the forest :-) The bed is also very comfortable and the room lovely with view on nature. Alissa gave us good tips for our trip, really lovely stay, could only recommend it to everyone looking for a real getaway from the city. Would love to come back! Thank you
Alissa and Jeff have a lovely home, quiet and peaceful in the redwoods. They provided directions to good hiking trails and local restaurants, and shared some excellent chocolate. Very kind couple!
My sister and I treated ourselves to a weekend getaway in Sonoma, and though we originally planned on camping, I am SO glad all the camp sites we were interested in were booked up, because Alissa and Jeff's beautiful home was absolutely magical. Even after a day of basking in the beautiful scenery of Armstrong Redwood Park, the landscape around this gorgeous home took our breath away!
The room itself is essentially like a small, adorable studio apartment. Very private and perfectly sized for two people. Like so many other reviewers, we were delighted by the tea and coffee Alissa & Jeff made available to us. We also loved the sandalwood-scented toiletries! My sister and I agreed that the bed was THE most comfortable bed either of us has slept in in yeaaaaars (maybe ever?!) And the hot tub nestled in among the Redwoods was the PERFECT place to end our night after we returned from a lovely dinner in nearby Occidental.
Though we didn't spend much time with Alissa & Jeff, they did invite us into their home to say and chat a bit, and man, are they a delight. Great hosts and very sweet people.
I would stay here again in a heartbeat and absolutely recommend it to Airbnb'ers. Thank you SO much, Alissa & Jeff!
Alissa made us feel very welcome. Their cozy room had everything you would need for a perfect get-away
We had an amazing experience with Alyssa! The location is beautiful. The house is surrounded by tall redwood trees and natural forest. The room is nice and comfortable with a super soft bed and all the basic necessities you need to enjoy your stay. The hot tub was super relaxing and a great addition to our stay.
Alyssa is an amazing host. She is kind and personable. She genuinely wants you to enjoy your experience. She made us feel completely comfortable and welcome.
We will definitely be returning!
My girlfriend and I really enjoyed our stay here. The room was clean and comfortable, and the coffee much appreciated in the morning! The property is beautiful and surrounded by massive redwoods. We recommend this airbnb to anyone looking for a quiet place to unwind.

We live in Occidental, a stone's throw from the beach and close enough to Sebastopol to have access to Whole Foods. I like to think I live in the place most like Waimea, Hawaii, on the Big Island, but better since we are about an hour and 15 min. from the Golden Gate Bridge. This helps me get my City Fix when I need it. We have a garden, a hot tub, and tons of redwood trees and ferns.
