Overview

Sebastopol House Rental Photos and Description

One bedroom, two bathroom, 1800 sq. ft. House on three private acres

Originally built to showcase redwood craftsmanship for a local steam mill, this house has open beam straight grain virgin redwood ceilings with old growth redwood paneling in a sunny area of three private acres. Quarter sawn white oak wide plank flooring beautifully compliments the redwood interior. Skylights provide a bright and inviting interior with beautiful forest and meadow views from every window. The modern kitchen has a Sub Zero built in fridge, Wolf range and oven, dishwasher and microwave all integrated with custom alder cabinets, granite counter tops, and a copper sink. The lighting is accomplished with lutron controls that create many beautiful lighting scenes at the touch of a button. The main bathroom has a big claw foot bath tub, marble floors with in floor heating, and gorgeous views from every window. The master bath has a shower with beautiful forest views and a door that leads onto the deck with a two person hot tub. The living room has a beautiful wood stove, flat screen tv, leather seating, and a wireless stereo system. The wrap around deck has beautiful views in every direction, a barbeque, hot tub and some outdoor seating. The property is in a sunny clearing surrounded by forest with a year round creek, redwood grove, and large oak trees.

Please visit my website listed on this site for a list of current events as well as a description of the area, links to wineries and restaurants, and some suggestions on things you might like to do.

Check in is flexible, check out is 11am generally, but please ask as check out may be flexible.

8/25/14: The Napa earthquake had no effect on the house. We didn't even have a cup fall over. West Sonoma county was largely unaffected.

What makes this house unique

This is a unique house with a unique history going back to the origins of the Redwood Empire

Guestbook comments from the owner

I wanted to take this time to thank you and your family in sharing the Redwood home with us. We had a comfortable and very enjoyable stay there. The home is beautiful and we felt all the love, blood, sweat and tears that went into preserving and updating the home. I was sad to leave the area.

Perfect Getaway Spot

  • 5 of 5

Joel is a wonderful host and his place is definitely the best rental spot I've ever stayed in. The house is situated on a beautiful, private lot and the redwood-filled interior features lots of modern amenities. The kitchen is recently renovated and has everything you could want as a cook with top notch Wolf appliances. Living room and bedroom were super comfortable and the hot tub on the back deck was a very welcome addition. I can't recommend this place enough and hope to visit again in the future.

Amazing rental

  • 5 of 5

By far the most amazing vacation rental I've ever stayed at. The house is beautiful and has anything you could want--indoor 2 person clawfoot tub (with heated floors!), huge bed, nice sized television, chef's kitchen, wood stove. The hot tub was well situated and it was great to relax in it at night and stare at the stars. The property is very pretty and despite there being 2 other houses on it, we couldn't see them and it felt like we had the whole woods to ourselves. We didn't want to leave. Few notes for renters: no cell service, but internet/wifi was fine. No streaming of videos allowed on the wifi, but the tv/dvd combo was good enough to keep us entertained when we weren't enjoying all the other amenities. No restaurants/grocery stores are walkable, but Sebastopol and Occidental are both very short drives and offer plenty of options.

Owner's Response: Thanks Jessie. I wish we had cell coverage there but the newer iphones can use VOIP to call via the internet wi-fi. There is a rumor of improved coverage happening but havent seen it yet. J

Girls weekend in Sonoma

  • of 5

I brought my sister, to-be SIL and her sister to the home for a girls weekend in Sonoma. We had a fantastic stay and the house was just perfect. Joel was so responsive and prompt in his replies. The home was in terrific shape. Highly recommended for a group of similar size and purpose.

Owner's Response: After the horn honking festivities at 4am and two phone calls from neighbors wondering just what was going on I have changed my policy to a two guest maximum.

Happy Campers

  • 5 of 5

But this place is far from camping. Exquisite quality of furnishings and construction. Every amenity one would need. Everything extremely clean. Convenient central location only 3 miles from Occidental and a short ride to the coast or to the vineyards. Wish we only had more time to rediscover everything the area has to offer. Quiet location behind a gate on a paved private road. Felt very secure and comfortable. I wish I could have stuffed the comforter into my suitcase, but (1) it wouldn't fit and (2) they'd know who took it. We'd stay here again and would recommend it to others. It seems like so much value for the money after spending the previous night in a hotel.

Fantastic place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Staying here exceeded my expectations. Nestled among the redwoods this house is private and a quiet place to stay. The views from each window was spectacular. I loved the detailed information for guests on the towns close by and the restaurant recommendations. I'm planning to visit again next year!

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

Country redwood masterpiece is not an exaggeration. The property is completely private and secluded, surrounded by redwoods, but not far from area attractions (San Francisco, Sebastopol, Bodega Bay, Armstrong Redwoods and more). The home is beautifully appointed with no detail overlooked. It's both inviting and luxurious. Upon leaving, we consoled ourselves by planning our next trip here!
