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

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.

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!

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.

MOST FANTASTIC FIND!

  • 5 of 5
A beautiful weekend at a most beautiful place. Suzy and Rick are both very generous hosts and met us with champagne and lots of yummy goodies on arrival. Starwest Ranch is amazing with lovely landscaping and decor that made for one of the most fantastic rentals we have ever stayed at (we are frequent VRBO explorers). I hesitate saying so much as I fear that this place will be booked up and we will not be able to stay again in the near future! This is quite a unique find. We will most definitely return again... Thanks Suzy and Rick!
