Airbnb host and renter.
this home is a real beauty and the backyard is a dream! we're already talking about when we can return to this cozy cabin. the photos might be a little outdated since the pictures don't do this stylish home justice! derek has great taste and the stocked kitchen was very much appreciated. the beds are crazy comfortable too. looking forward to our next stay.
Our stay at Derek's home was PERFECT. The cabin is dreamy. Rustic with little modern touches. Super clean. It's incredible well equipped - the kitchen had everything and everything worked. The beds were comfortable. We loved being able to see out to the pacific ocean on clear nights. We will definitely return.
We had such a lovely time! The views were absolutely stunning and the house immediately felt like home. Because we arrived during a cold spell it was chilly at first, but we fired up the gas stove and it got really cozy. The location was close to everything we needed to see for a first visit to Sonoma. We toured wineries for two days, hiked in the redwoods of Armstrong, and had fantastic dinners out and in. The four of us were very happy here. Thank you for providing such a wonderful place to stay.
The house was even better than we expected. The living room, bedroom, and kitchen are so comfortable and stylish. The beds are super comfortable, with lovely, soft sheets. The view is stunning. The deck is the perfect place for breakfast (and dinner). The garden is lovely. We spent a few hours just lazing comfortably in the hammock.
The location is just a little out of the way, which for us was exactly what we wanted, but an easy drive both to wine tasting, Guerneville, and to the coast. Speaking of the coast, there were plenty of helpful local guidebooks at the house, which gave us great ideas for an out-of-the-way hike at Salt Point State Park.
Our stay at Ocean View was more than we could have expected. I stayed there for a long weekend with my son and his wife - we all felt like we were in paridise! The home itself is perfectly decorated for the setting, and the setting is beyond wonderful. There are views from every area of the house and an amazing panorama view from the decks. We loved being in the living room with the extensive musical collection available, the raised wooden beam ceiling, the fireplace and the coziness of comfortable seating. There is a large well tended garden with small table and chairs where we drank our morning coffee and enjoyed the sun and nature. We picked greens for our salads and cut flowers for displaying throughout the home. The kitchen was well stocked and a delight to work in with a HomeBeautiful worthy dinning nook. I especially enjoyed my master bedroom with beautiful views and private deck. It was a wonderful weekend for us all.
The reservation was canceled 5 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Wondering how six of us would or could enjoy this family holiday along the coast of Bodega Bay . . . until we arrived at THIS cozy cabin. Nestled among a "Sherwood Forest" of trees, we just followed the welcoming lights to the front door and after stepping into such delightful accommodations, amenities, and ambience . . . there was no doubt that we were all going to have a WONDERFUL time!
Beautiful and wonderful! We had everything we needed and more. It was really nice and I would definitely stay there again. The area is so relaxing and calming - good nature retreat for city goers.
A beautiful setting and a very well thought out house and outdoor space to take advantage of the views wherever you choose to sit, indoors or outdoors - brilliant.. The house is well equipped and every area is comfortable. There is plenty of space for a group of 3 couples. You need to drive if you want to go out to dinner as the house is 3 miles from the town of Occidental. The host was available for any questions by email ( our choice) and phone and responded very quickly. The only bad thing was having to leave and
The house was perfect for our Sonoma County retreat. It was a great landing pad for us for our friends' wedding off Coleman Valley Rd. We loved the hammock in the back yard - it was the best place to enjoy the warm afternoon sun when we arrived. We would definitely stay here again!
Derek, Sarah and Yubi were outstanding guests. Derek was willing to work with me to find dates that were available for his stay, and was very proactive in keeping in touch with me leading up to their arrival.
Derek and Sarah are extremely sweet and friendly people, and I felt absolutely comfortable leaving my home to them for three days there were in town. Their dog Yubi, too, was well-behaved and didn't shed or leave any impact on the space.
Ultimately Derek and Sarah left my place in better condition than perhaps any guests I've had to date, to the extent at which I literally would not have been able to tell that anyone had been there if I hadn't known otherwise.
Derek, Sarah and Yubi are welcome back in my home anytime, and I hope to see them again soon. A++ guests!!
Derek and Sarah were excellent guests at the stone house in Detroit. They were respectful and we would rent to them again in a heartbeat. 5 stars!
See you soon Derek! Our home is your home!
Derek is a frequent and excellent guest. Everything is easy and pleasent during his stay. Confirmed!
Everything just perfect as usual. Derek is our guests since long time and we are happy to host him again in the near future.
Derek is an excellent guest, easy to comunicate with. We are happy to host him again soon!
Derek was the perfect guest. He left my place in excellent condition, not a thing out of place. Very communicative before and after booking, I would not hesitate to rent to him again.
Derek was polite, respectful and very nice. I would rent to him again for sure!
