About this listing
Our West side Petaluma detached guest house is located in a quiet neighborhood just a short walk to historic downtown Petaluma, the Petaluma River, Helen Putnam Park & our new Theater District.
Petaluma is the "Gateway to Northern California" and is a great place to make your base to visit the Sonoma/ Napa wine country, San Francisco, Berkeley & Oakland, the Sonoma & Marin coasts, the Redwoods and the Point Reyes National Seashore. Petaluma is also a wonderful destination, offering great restaurants, wine bars, breweries & pubs, antique shops & boutiques, hiking & cycling and entertainment venues.
Our 700 sq. ft. vacation home is located in charming West Petaluma, very near our historic downtown, and has one bedroom with a plush Cal-King bed, one bathroom with a step-in shower, and a spacious living room/ kitchen area. There's a modest backyard with a picnic table & umbrella. We have satellite TV & wi-fi internet. What more does one need for a memorable trip to NorCal & the wine country?
Petaluma is a great place to visit in any season.

This was our 4th time staying with Stephen and Karen at the Oak Terrace Guest House. As always we had a great time. Stephen and Karen are such caring and generous people. The guest house is so comfortable. The location is perfect to take advantage of all that downtown Petaluma has to offer. We can't wait to come back.
Stephen and Karen were great hosts...willing to help and accommodating to my schedule. I was in town for a few days between jobs and the unit was perfect for working. It is fairly close to the downtown area. The pictures are a fair representation of the unit and I found it clean and in good shape. I would rent again and recommend it without reservation.
My husband and I had a great time staying at Stephen and Karen's place. Cozy, clean, and conveniently located. Within walking distance to downtown. They were great host and provided us with great information on where to go. We'd definitely stay with them again in the future.
The guest house was fantastic! Beautiful and clean, and they provided high chair and pack-n-play for my daughter. Many thanks!
Quiet neighborhood, comfy bed, ample space, great location. We were very happy in this apartment. Stephen and Karen greeted us warmly and supplied us with good coffee. Then, because we were visiting family and are familiar with Petaluma, they left us to our own devices. Just right for us. Another time, I'd have enjoyed a visit with them. Can't think of anything I would change.
We really enjoyed our stay in Petaluma. Stephen and Karen were very welcoming and a great resource about the area.
We enjoyed walking into downtown Petaluma from their place which is very conveniently located. The place was exactly as pictured and very comfortable for me and my husband.
We'd definitely recommend staying here if you are in Petaluma.
About the Host, Stephen & Karen
I am a retired information super-highway roadworker. My wife is a Special Education teacher at our local high school. We were both born & raised in Northern California & love our NorCal & Petaluma. We've lived in Petaluma for 30 years & have been active in our community & are blessed with a large circle of wonderful friends. We've also travelled extensively in Northern California, the USA, Europe & Mexico. When we travel we prefer to use airbnb and local Bed & Breakfasts. One of the benefits of using a service like airbnb is meeting interesting people from around the world, travelers that aren't afraid to venture off of Main Street into the neighborhoods. We love to share our beloved NorCal area with our guests.
