About Sara Schomp

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

Why Sara Schomp chose Sebastopol

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

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.

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!

Stunning Sebastopol hideaway

  • 5 of 5
If you're looking for a countryside hideout with all the trimmings & more well this is the ideal place to stay. This house is quite simply beautiful. It has everything you'd wish for, is tastefully decorated, has a really relaxed & roomy feel to it and is surrounded by beautiful trees & woodlands. The swimming pool & spa area is fantastic and as the temperatures got into the 90's during our stay we used it a lot! Finally, what a wonderful host Sara is. We arrived quite late in the evening after the long flight from Ireland and she went out of her way to help us settle in - even driving off to the local store to pick up some groceries. Hopefully, we'll be back to visit in the future!

Peaceful, Artistic, Beautiful

  • 5 of 5
In all the years we have been renting homes around the world, rarely have we found one with this combination of beauty, art, and conveniences. The home is on a peaceful lane outside Sebastopol. Close enough for easy drives to restaurants, shops, and the coast. But tucked away in a wooded notch surrounded by flowers and fragrant plants so you can swim, cook, read or watch stars (when the cool fog isn't here). One of the most unique features is the art: on the walls, in the sculptures or the fabulous handmade furniture. The beds are very comfortable. The salt-water solar-heated pool is a dream. The kitchen is well-stocked. There are books of all types. And games. Pictures and descriptions don't really do this home justice. They certainly can't give you a sense of the smells. There are plant-protected nooks of all kinds. We were totally blown away and came back completely relaxed and dreaming of the time we can return.

A treasure in Sebastopol!

  • 5 of 5
This is a fantastic property and vacation spot "away-from-it-all". We have stayed here twice! Sara is a wonderful host, the home is lovely and extremely well appointed, the location is perfect for just relaxing as well as exploring Sonoma and environs. We always look forward to going to Sara's Oasis...and we always hate to leave! It is a very special place.....

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.
