About Susan Westerbeke

Local gal to the San Francisco Bay Area. Grew up in Marin, San Francisco and Sonoma. Love to travel and collect special architectural details to decorate my home with.

Susan Westerbeke purchased this house in 1930

Why Susan Westerbeke chose Sonoma

This property has been in my family since the 1930s. My Grandmother bought the property before there were even paved roads to it, only dirt. Since then I have transformed it into something quite remarkable that you can enjoy.

What makes this house unique

My husband, as contractor and construction, and I, as designer, worked as a team to design, build and decorate this beautiful home. It is interiorly decorated and exteriorly landscaped with a passion for the eclectic all which I personally have done. My amazing husband is also a fine woodworker and built the kitchen cabinets, and most if not all of the furniture throughout. It really is a one of a kind!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were so happy here and we enjoyed everything about it!!! You have done a fabulous job decorating and landscaping. Every detail was perfect. Thank you for everything!! Take Care!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

Love this place. The pics on the website do not do it justice. It is much better in person. Huge place and lots of nature for outdoorsy types. The owners, Rick and Susan are very accommodating. We will be back again definitely.

Wonderful space and amenities

  • 5 of 5

A group of us stayed a weekend at Star West Ranch to celebrate a friend's wedding. The space is very nicely located--near many attractions of Sonoma, but secluded enough to really feel like a retreat. The house is better equipped than just about any rental property I have ever been to--knives that actually cut things, an outdoor kitchen with hard piped gas, and a nice spread of snacks and drinks upon our arrival. There is ample room for a large group to both have privacy and great common areas. The owners are very friendly, easy to get a hold of with any questions, and very accommodating to our needs with no hassle (extra guests, pets, and a flexible checkout time).

We did just that: drink wine in luxury

  • 5 of 5

The owner communicated greatly and stopped by, to make sure we had everything we need. There was a wonderful cheese plate and champaign waiting for us. The decor was as promised, beautiful and unique. Every room (we rented the while place) had its own style, it was great! We loved the hot tub and especially the steamer shower. What a treat! We almost didn't want to leave to go wine tasting. We had a group of 9 women and everyone slept comfortably. We would recommend this place and will be coming back for sure!

Great property

  • 5 of 5

We rented the ranch for a family trip (grandparents, grown kids, grandkids) and had a fantastic time. The property is a perfect match to a Sonoma vacation. The longer we stayed at the property the more we appreciated the place. This is a true vacation property versus the majority of the listings you see on VRBO.
