Guestbook comments from the owner
Our stay at Sara's Oasis was a great value! We felt very welcome and would recommend it 100% . We spent one entire day of our 3 day vacation lounging at Sara's beautiful pool, spa and garden. We enjoyed Sonoma County wine tasting, and took some walks.



Particularly delightful was our lunch at Lynmar winery and our morning trips to nearby Wild Flour bakery for breakfast breads and coffee.



Just to be unbiased, there were a lot of leaves in the grill on the back deck which we quickly brushed aside.

I am an artist and a retired San Francisco high school teacher. Much of the furniture and cabinetry in the house was hand crafted by my husband and me. His furniture is shown in galleries in Northern California. I am a sculptor and web designer and live and work nearby. The house was designed and lovingly built to house our family, now gone to their own lives. It is sunny and private with lots of oak trees and a meadow. If you moved to Sonoma County, this is exactly where you would want to live...beautiful, quiet, private and inviting. We eat organic fruits and vegetables all year long, not to mention quaff the wine.

Sara Schomp purchased this house in 1991

As a child I came from Denver to visit my aunties here in Sebastopol in the 1940's-60's. While living in San Francisco during the 70-90's we set up our furniture and wood working shop here when it became too costly to work in SF, eventually moving the family here to live in the country. While living in SF we came up here for the Apple Festival, concerts and dances and enjoyed visiting the beach and all the little villages.

It is so quiet here I could not move back to the city. Everywhere one looks one sees beauty and that's important to me. It's exciting to have so many artists and vineyards surrounding us, and being near the ocean and seeing the green and hilly landscape, studded with oaks and redwoods just tops it all off.

FABULOUS VACATION AT SARA'S OASIS

Fabulous Vacation at Sara's Oasis
  • 5 of 5
My husband and I and our good friends just returned from a wonderful week at Sara's Oasis. In reading the reviews and looking at the pictures before we left we had high expectations. Upon first arrival and our look around the house and the grounds I told Sara that this house is actually more beautiful than the pictures! The grounds around the pool and the gardens are indescribably lovely. The beds are very comfortable and the gourmet kitchen fully stocked. We shopped for seafood at Bodega Bay and cooked some wonderful seafood at the house. We love to go to wineries and spent several days at the many local wineries within driving distance. The highlight of the trip however was canoeing down the Russian River which is only about a 20 minute drive. The house is centrally located in the county which makes it easy to get to many communities in the area for restaurants and sight seeing. Thanks Sara for the wonderful week and we plan to return soon!

A TRUE OASIS

  • 5 of 5
My family and I have rented a number of homes throughout California but Sara's Oasis shoots to the top of the list as one we'll definitely rent again. The pool and spa are great and the kids loved it, but the true charm of Sara's Oasis comes from the beautiful landscaping and wildlife and I would be remiss if I didn't mention the stunning custom furniture. My daughters got a huge kick out of the wild turkeys whereas being a woodworker I loved the one of a kind furniture pieces.

Sara herself helped immensely with local recommendations for both food and activities. She also provided a book with numerous activity recommendations for all ages.

A side note, if you're in town there is a little music shop on Main Street called Peoples Music - stop in! The kids enjoyed the variety of instruments - some I've never seen before - and I saw for the first time in a shop a Portuguese Guitar. They've had it for 15 years and had never heard it played. I was happy to play a waltz and a fado minor for them which they got a kick out of. Good people there.

Back to the Oasis...don't think about it anymore, this IS the place for you if you're looking for a quiet home not far from wineries, hiking trails (I can recommend Armstrong Redwoods Park), and some great places to enjoy fine cuisine.

Relax by the pool
Relax in the spa
Enjoy Sara's Oasis...
We did and will again soon.

Thanks Sara,
The Farleys

WHAT A WONDERFUL WELCOMING HOUSE AND HOST. IT TRULY IS AN OASIS JUST OVER AN HOUSE FROM THE CITY.

  • 5 of 5
Our visit saw a number of expectations exceeded. The house was very comfortable and well provisioned. The cooking equipment was far superior to what is normally seen in a vacation rental, and it provided us everything we needed to cook almost all of our meals at home. The pool area was fantastic and a lovely spot to sit during the day. We had lunch down there too, which was perfect. The bedrooms, living room, kitchen and dining area were all as good or better than expected. With a three year old we were very happy to see that the pool area was completely fenced off, so an adventurous toddler could not into trouble.

The price is very reasonable compared to similar properties we have visited, particularly in the area. One of the highlights is the ability to venture out and see a lot of what Somona County has to offer:
Jenner – the harbor seals are a highlight for the kids, and we were lucky enough to see a pod of grey whales playing just off the river’s mouth, literally 50 yards offshore.
Bodega Bay – we ran into a cold and very windy day, so beach time was limited, but I know it can be lots of fun in summer
Florence Street – the street sculptures are always worth a visit and our three year old loved them
Littorai (Winery) – wonderful intimate tasting and tour of the bio-dynamic winery and gardens. Well worth a visit and delicious wines (pinot and chardonnay). Minutes away from the house.
Joseph Phelps (Winery) – very pleasant tasting, although reasonably run-of-the-mill in structure. Delicious chardonnays from the area. Right next to Wild Flour
Wild Flour (balery in Freestone) – only open Fri-Mon, but we went every day we could. My parents loved the coffee, and we all loved the breads and scones, and sitting in the wonderful garden out the back.
River’s Edge (restaurant in Jenner) – great view, wonderful service and tasty lunch. Brilliant with the kids too

We will definitely be back.

A GREAT PLACE TO STAY IN THE WEST SEBASTOPOL HILLS

  • 5 of 5
4 of us stayed at Sara's Oasis from 17 Jan to 24 Jan 2014. We found the house and grounds beautiful and very comfortable. Everything about the property was as-advertised and, while accurate, the photos did not do it justice. As the property description notes there is custom crafted furniture and art throughout the home. The kitchen is very complete with a Wolf cooktop and high quality cookware, very unusual in a rental.
Our trip was focused around food and wine and the property location gave us easy access to the north and west Sonoma County wineries. There are many excellent restaurants (from Michelin * level on down) within a 30 minute drive of the property.
The owner was very helpful with restaurant recommendations and local attractions but did not intrude. Our stay was spiced up by the local wildlife consisting of deer behind the house in the morning and wild turkeys meandering about the property during the day; at dusk the turkeys display their flying ability and roost in the trees.
Since we were there in the winter we did not use the pool but the entire pool/spa/poolhouse setup looked wonderful for warmer weather. The wraparound deck along the front of the house makes for a wonderful place to sit at sunset. This is one of the best rentals I have ever utilized and I highly recommend it.

SARA'S OASIS IS TRULLY AN ELEGANT OASIS!

Sara's Oasis is trully an elegant oasis!
  • 5 of 5
From the moment we parked in front of the house we were in awe. The grounds are beautifully landscaped with many different kinds of trees, bushes, and flowers. The herb garden had a nice selection of fresh herbs that gave us inspiration for the meals we would be preparing during our stay. A nicely designed pool and surrounding area had all the amenities one could ask for with nice teak furniture, umbrellas, and Weber BBQ. The pool is large enough for lap swimming and the changing room had everything one would need while using the pool area. Once inside the home we were taken back by all the beautiful artwork on the walls, and the unique design features and artistic touches that were everywhere. Beautiful exotic wood furnishings were everywhere we looked, from the sofas to the dining room table, chairs and kitchen woodwork. Even the baseboards and door jams had exotic wood inlays! One of the nicest touches inside were the fresh flowers that were in every room, including the bathrooms. We felt really at home with all the personal touches Sara included. Everyone in our party likes to cook and we were looking forward to using the beautiful kitchen. This is a cook's kitchen with all the utensils one could ask for. The minute we fired up the gas Wolf cook top and put one of the Alclad LTD saute pans on it we know we would get the cooking results we were used to. Everything is in this kitchen to make food prep a breeze. Lots of spices, herbs, and cooking oils are already there for use. We also really enjoyed the front patio, listening to the birds while enjoying morning coffee. No noise here, just the sounds of nature that provide a real solitude. At the end of the day the super comfortable beds and linens really helped to ease our tired muscles after a day of hiking in Armstrong Woods and wine tasting. We would come back to rent this house again in a heartbeat as everything we needed and wanted in a vacation house is here-in spades! Sara was a warm and gracious host and made sure we had everything we needed, answered all our questions and had a genuine interest in our stay being as enjoyable as possible. We will be back!!

PEACEFUL AND RELAXING!

  • 5 of 5
My husband, two adult daughters and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Sebastopol. The property was perfectly located to enjoy the numerous wineries as well as the Russian River and the coast. We did it all!

The house had every amenity we needed along with being quiet, peaceful and private. Sara, the owner, as well as a property caretaker were easily accessible in the event we needed anything or had any questions. We appreciated that it was so immaculate and clean. The beds were like clouds, so we all slept well. The kitchen was well-equipped. And at the end of each day we would spend quiet time by the pool and spa. We grilled, swam and enjoyed wine from our daily excursions.

We can highly recommend Marimar Vineyards and Schug Carneros Winery. Korbel had a delicious deli on site and offered free tours and tastings. Dry River Vineyard was delicious and has beautiful grounds for picnicking. The Dry River General Store directly across the street from the vineyard offered a large variety of take-out lunch options to purchase.

We all returned home happy, rested and relaxed!
