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

  • 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!

Great Getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for a ladies' getaway weekend to celebrate my mother's 70th birthday and it was absolutely perfect! Our intention was to lounge by a pool in a private, secluded spot surrounded by beauty and nature and that's exactly what we experienced.

We made breakfast and lunch at the house and ate out at KnL Bistro in Sebastopol and Willi's Seafood Wine Bar in Healdsburg for dinner. Both were excellent! We spent our evenings playing scrabble and chatting. The house is stocked with lots of books and games and showcases many exquisite and interesting art pieces. Even the furniture and kitchen cabinets are exceptional works of art.

We enjoyed listening to the wild turkeys gobble, the neighbor horses whinny, the birds singing; but the true delight was watching a fox prance in the woodsy area out the dining room window along with deer and squirrels. Quite an enchanting place.

We would only want to mention that there is a tenant onsite which may be uncomfortable for some but we never saw or heard the person so it was a nonissue. A very BIG plus is the owner lives right down the road and is very responsive to requests or needs. We would highly recommend this vacation rental and in fact will be returning next year.

Berkshire MA 2014 Turkey Holidays

  • 5 of 5

What an unbelievably nice surprise!! We have stayed at between 1 to 2 dozen rentals from VRBO / HomeAway both inside and outside the USA. This is clearly in our top 3. Spacious and exceptionally well-equipped kitchen, living and dining areas, comfortable beds and top shelf linens, ultra clean including modern bathrooms, wonderfully decorated with inspired art work and collectables everywhere, well stocked book shelves, amazing swimming pool and hot tub that we used even at the end of November.

Sara is a generous and gracious host who met us upon arrival, tended to our needs when or if asked, was engaging and easy to deal with upon departure after our 7 night stay.

This is indeed a very quiet and private oasis, yet close to everything one would want to do in western Sonoma & Russian River wine country. Sebastopol is a charming town with wonderful shops and restaurants, with Santa Rosa just a stone's throw away with even more to offer. The dozen adult turkeys wandering the neighborhood over Thanksgiving was a treat, including the 4Toms with their tails spread in full plumage. fairly priced....well worth the booking.

Elegant and comfortable wine country oasis

  • 5 of 5

We rented this lovely home near Sebastopol while visiting the area to attend my niece's wedding. Totally well appointed with intriguing art work, full kitchen, nice furniture, big pool, great hot tub - all surrounded by gorgeous, well kept gardens. The owner was helpful, friendly, and respectful of our privacy. Really had a wonderful time and we hope to return sometime!

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.
