Sebastopol Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Sebastopol is in the heart of this beautiful county convenient to Healdsburg, Santa Rosa, Russian River, Windsor and more.

Visit Sebastopol in this adorable, solar powered studio apartment that overlooks an organic, boutique Pinot noir vineyard. Situated on a 3 acre estate, our prime location provides the privacy of the country but the convenience of being in town. Starting November 1st, you'll be able to enjoy our winter rates!

We can provide you with free tasting coupons from some of our favorite wineries.

If you are a beer lover, we are near Lagunitas Brewing Company where you can taste, tour, eat and listen to live music. Russian River Brewing company is also nearby where you can enjoy their wonderful beer, pub food and live music on the weekend. For a huge selection of local and international beers on tap and live music, you can just walk to Hopmonk Tavern in downtown Sebastopol or take a short drive to Barley and Hops in Occidental.

We are also a short walk away from the Barlow - a new 12 acre campus that is a gourmet gathering place for locally made food, wine, coffee and other artisan products. You'll be able to wine taste at La Follette Wines, Marimar Torres, MacPahail Family Wines and Wind Gap Wines. Beer makers at the Barlow include Woodfour Brewing company and Warped Brewing Company, from the owners of Barley and Hops Tavern in Occidental.

We're a 20 minute drive from Annadel State park for beautiful hikes of various lengths and levels of difficulty. We're also 30 minutes from Armstrong Woods State park where you hike among some of California's oldest and tallest redwoods. We are also 20 minutes from the coast and 30 minutes from Bodega Head, one of the most scenic hikes around where you can see whales and California's breathtaking, rugged coastline. If you want to stay close to home, just walk up and down each row of the vineyard to get in a nice 2 mile hike.

For a thrill of a lifetime, take a 30 minute drive to Sonoma Canopy Tours and zip line in the Coastal Redwoods. Or take a hot air balloon ride over wine country!

Sebastopol is the center of all things holistic with countless alternative healers including the well known Amitabha medical clinic and healing center.

If you feel like getting pampered, you can visit several local spas, like the Osmosis Day Spa where you can enjoy a relaxing massage or their renowned cedar enzyme baths.

Speaks english

Joanne and Doug retired from high tech careers to live their dream in wine country. Joanne, who previously was CEO of Ampro computers, is now a PhD holistic nutritionist and spends her day inventing healthy recipes and posting them on her blog: FoodsForLongLife. She is the Author of the eBook, Health Begins in the Kitchen.

Doug, who was previously an engineering executive at IBM and Hitachi, now uses his chemical engineering background to grow and make wine. He has since studied viticulture and winemaking and does most of the hand farming of our Pinot noir vineyard. We will be releasing our 2012 Turtle Vines Pinot Noir in the spring of 2014.

We've enjoyed living in Sebastopol for almost 4 years and would love to share with you our favorite places to eat and things to do. In fact, we've put together a little book of our favorite restaurants and things to do that you can look through during your stay.

We love to support local charities and donate at least 10 percent of all rental revenue to organizations such as the Redwood Empire Food Bank, 1:1 Fund, Project Open Hand, American Institute of Cancer Research, and others.

Joanne Williams purchased this studio in 2008

It is within walking distance to 20+ restaurants, live theater, shopping, movies, several grocery stores, including Whole Foods. In addition, we are minutes away from World Famous Russian River Valley Wineries.

The studio overlooks a working Pinot noir vineyard. You have the convenience of being close to town yet the feel of being in the country.

We spent 5 nights at the Wine Country Studio and had a great time. Highly recommend for location, comfort and friendliness of hosts. The studio was spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated and the refrigerator was stocked with goodies. Doug took us on a tour of his pinot noir vineyards and even let us sample his wine. Joanne had delicious chocolates and wine tasting discounts for us - even brought by homemade banana bread one day. Quiet location, within easy walking distance of restaurants and shops. We plan to return!

Owner's Response: It was great hosting you! We're certainly seeing a trend of our vacation guests loving the area so much that they decide to buy property here. We feel fortunate to live in such a beautiful location and we love sharing it with nice folks like you. Good luck with your house hunting and we hope to see you when you are back in town.

We had an amazing time during our short time on CA, which was only made better by our decision to stay at the Williams' property. The neighborhood is so cute--peaceful, walkable, friendly. Her description of all the various amenities very close by was accurate. We were able to easily stroll to town for whatever we wanted, be it food, groceries, wine, music, etc.

The property itself is perfect and situated on a beautifully appointed property. While the studio isn't overly big, it was spotless, tastefully decorated and just what we needed. The kitchen was stocked with great stuff--electric tea kettle, water bottles, a small portable cooking range, a little lunch bag to keep snacks cool on the road, etc. The Williams were also kind enough to stock the fridge with many thoughtful extras, which they certainly did not have to do (but were so appreciated!).

The Williams were attentive and helpful throughout the entire process. We could not have asked for better or more generous hosts. We would definitely revisit the property if we ever return to the area!

Doug and Joanne were excellent hosts! We arrived to a very welcoming environment, personal, friendly, private yet open for exploration! We only wished we would have taken more time to enjoy the immediate surroundings rather than tooling around locally.
Excellent recommendations for places to go, things to see and places to eat! And a wide variety of venues!
The rental itself was very clean, updated and with all the amenities. Extra touches made it well worth the experience! Although on the owner property, there was an amazing sense of privacy.
We also enjoyed a private and personal walking/talking tour of the property vineyard by Doug and learned so much! Joanne's fresh and warm banana bread Saturday morning was a super treat as well! And never ran out of organic coffee, and I drink a lot of coffee!
A very easy and safe walk into town and all sorts of places to eat and things to do as well.
Thanks Doug and Joanne!

Joanne and Doug created this beautiful, private accommodation nestled within their vineyard. We were very pleased upon arrival as the place was even more gorgeous then the pictures. They claimed they aren't a bed and breakfast but Joanne stocked the fridge with assortment of beverages including beer and wine and provided us with a cheese/cracker platter. She also pays attention to details like providing specialty local chocolates and stocking the bathroom ameneties with all organic products. The place was very clean and had a warm, cozy feel. Their hospitilty was exceptional. I would request additional items via text and she would have it at the door step in short order. Since this was our first trip to Sonoma Joanne and Doug spent time helping us plan local activities from vineyards to the pacific coast. All her recommendations were spot on. Doug even gave us a private tour of their vineyard. They have a binder in the room with all their recommendations for restaurants filled with reviews and menus from each restaurant. Our favorite was Lowell's for dinner and breakfast. Our last dinner was at Claudio's and this was fantastic! This was a quaint little house restaurant with authentic Italian food. We will definitely stay with them again the next time we visit the Sonoma area.
