Description

The space

We live in the countryside in and around organic apple orchards and vineyards in beautiful Sonoma County. Our home has a wrap around deck, with gorgeous views. The ocean is a 17 minute drive and a trip from here to San Francisco will take one hour. Santa Rosa airport is a 30 minutes drive away.

Soak in the hot tub, visit our daughter's hens, buy her eggs if you wish, and help yourselves to what is growing in our garden and then cook up a feast in our open style kitchen while enjoying the views. We have pear, peach, apple, persimmon and apricot trees, to name a few, with a Meyer lemon tree to greet you at the front door. BBQ on the deck while sipping wine or enjoy a walk down our country lane. Know that our land is very private, but we do live in a neighborhood and have a 9pm-9am quiet policy to insure the tranquility of all the folks that live around us, so we ask for folks to respect this policy.

Our home has three bedrooms ( 2 queen beds and one double bed) with 2 full bathrooms. Each bedroom has its own access onto the deck. We also offer two queen sized airbeds if needed which will be set up in the music room if needed. And we have a portable infant co-sleeper crib and a pack-and-play which can be set up anywhere.

It's only a 10 minute drive to downtown Sebastopol where you'll find many shops, live theater and a multi-plex cinema. Sonoma County is famous for its vineyards, wineries and gourmet restaurants, all of which are close by. We're happy to recommend our favorites... The Armstrong Woods Redwood Forest is just 30 minutes away or just stay put for a perfectly peaceful getaway and a great place to meet Northern California at its finest.

This is a family friendly home filled with many books, netflix and DVD's for both children and adults. We have two kitties, Oberon and Jezamo, who remain outside during your stay, but you're welcome to invite them in if you wish. Gypsy, our golden retriever is here on the land, but stays with us or our tenants. You're welcome to invite her in for a snuggle too. We leave that up to you.

We'd love to hear from you if you have any questions.

Cheers, Karen and Eddie

Make yourselves at home. We have teas and coffee for you, a piano and numerous stringed instruments, DVDs galore and enough music for endless inspiration. Of course sheets, towels, soaps etc. are all included. It is your home after all.

We're close enough that we'll be here if you need us and far enough away that you'll have privacy as if it were your own home.

The town of Sebastopol is quaint, yet it has all the amenities you could ask for. Movie theatre, wineries, beer and cider brewing pubs, ice cream shops, hiking, shopping, spas, music venues, Armstrong woods, Russian River, the beach… The list is endless, but you'll find details at our home of our top picks. The hard part will be leaving the house, because once you get here you've got views, hot tub, relaxing, cooking, talking, walks…. Remember, It's No Place Like Home, It's a Holiday!

Easy parking right next to our home. Car rentals available in town and at Santa Rosa Airport which is only 30 minutes away.

The house is all on one level and wheelchair accessible (no bars in the shower though). We have a TV for our many DVD's and Netflix, and basic cable.

Guest access

The house is open, so make yourselves at home. We have teas and coffee for you, a piano and numerous stringed instruments, DVDs galore and enough music for endless inspiration. Of course sheets, towels, soaps etc. are all included. It is your home after all.

Interaction with guests

We're close enough that we'll be here if you need us and far enough away that you'll have privacy as if it were your own home. We'd love to meet you, but with our busy lives, we won't always get the chance. I will of course always answer a text or call with any questions or concerns. We live in a Geodesic Dome at the bottom of the property when guests are in our home. We also share our driveway with you and one neighbor.

The neighborhood

We love Sebastopol. Sunday Farmer's Market, Thursday seasonal Barlow Market, brew pubs, wine tasting, cinemas, theater, hiking, biking, shopping. And, it's Sonoma County!

Getting around

Easy parking right next to our home. We offer for hire an exclusive driver with a car for wine tours and airport pickups or delivery or general taxi service. 4 passengers. Santa Rosa Airport is only 30 minutes away.

Other things to note

We allow dogs. The charge is $15 per/dog per/day. We ask that they not jump on furniture (couches, beds...) and that you bring your own dog bed. Our property has 1 acre fenced in, so roaming outside is safe.


House Rules

Check in is anytime after 3PM

We are clean but relaxed and would love the same. Please respect the privacy of our neighbors and honor the 9pm to 9am quiet policy. Mostly, we would hope that you would treat our home as if it were yours. No smoking. We also love shoes off in the house and showering before taking a hot tub. When leaving, the gate opens towards you automatically and then closes after 30 seconds, so be aware! The rest we can figure out when you get here. Rules? RELAX!

Quiet, beautiful, serene and incredibly cozy - Karen and Eddie's home is ideal for a weekend getaway from the city. The deck invites stunning views of the area and likely one of the better sunsets you'll see.. hot tub is a perfect place to star gaze at night.

Karen And Eddie User ProfileKaren And Eddie is a superhost.

We are both teachers and lovers of travel. We have two daughters; a graduate of USF and a 12th grader). Eddie teaches music and plays professionally. I teach preschool and love to sing. We're in our garden whenever possible, but a night out in the city is the perfect balance. We've both traveled extensively around the world. 7 weeks in Vietnam with our kids and backpacks was ideal. 3 years in Europe was fantastic. 4 months in Tibet made my heart soar.
