SEQUOIA BEACH DREAMERY -- 'THE BEST GETAWAY WE'VE EVER TAKEN'
(See "Reviews" for more guest comments. Also, see "SPECIALS" below.)
Our FIVE-STAR reviews say it all ... "The Dreamery" is a dreamy getaway. Guests love the location. It's easy to get to, very private, and it's a bit off the well-trod tourist track. A recent guest wrote: "This is a perfect location, close to the coast and the Russian River wineries ... and secluded enough to make us feel like we got away. This is our new favorite place!"
*NOTE* - SAVE the $100 Cleaning Fee: I love a clean house as much as anyone. But I think it should be included in the rental fee -- not charged as an add-on. When you leave the house in good shape, we won't charge the $100 cleaning fee.
Our attention to detail is legendary. We seek to delight guests in every possible way and we ask that you respect the following:
*NOTE* - ABSOLUTELY NO SMOKING, NO MORE than 4 PEOPLE (INCLUDING INFANTS/CHILDREN and DAY GUESTS), and NO PETS. SORRY - NO EXCEPTIONS.
PROPERTY PROFILE: A few steps from the beach and swimming on Big Austin Creek, “The Dreamery” is that rare vacation home where you feel like an honored guest.
TASTEFULLY DECORATED with CRAFTSMAN detail and JAPANESE art, this lovely property features a well-equipped kitchen, a luxury bathroom with new radiant-heat floors, comfy beds, romantic wood-burning fireplace, a hot-water outdoor shower, a star-gazing spa/hot tub, modern amenities, calming Japanese garden, a huge deck, and -- most important -- peaceful intimacy with nature.
The Dreamery is set on a curve of Big Austin Creek -- one of the cleanest waterways in Calif. The year-round creek is home to protected steelhead salmon, giant blue heron, egrets, kingfishers, ducks, and playful river otters.
PICTURE WINDOWS frame tranquil views of water and redwood forests from every room. Light, airy bedrooms open onto the spacious private deck overlooking the beach, creek, and a great spot for wading and swimming.
THE 1/2 ACRE of PRIVACY is graced with soaring old-growth redwoods, lots of light, and a serene Japanese garden.
The Dreamery is located in the Russian River/Sonoma Coast resort area -- 98 minutes from the Golden Gate Bridge (I timed it).
You'll be near world-class wineries, restaurants, spectacular scenery, Armstrong Woods Redwood Preserve (tallest tree: 310 ft; oldest 1,400 years), Northwood golf course, Jenner By-the-Sea, and the breathtaking Sonoma Coast beaches.
Outdoor activities abound in this eco-adventure paradise. However, once you get to the peaceful setting, you may not want to leave (ever!).

PAMPER YOURSELF WITH HYDRO MASSAGE

EASY LOCATION - EASILY ACCESSIBLE
A single-level bungalow, the Dreamery is set on the most beautiful spot on Austin Creek. It's an easy 1/2 mile walk or bike ride to the village of Cazadero where you will find a real 'Country Store.' A coffee shop/bakery is even closer. A short scenic drive brings you to the Sonoma beaches and coastline where the Russian River meets the mighty Pacific Ocean. And even if the coast is socked in with FOG, you’ll be protected in the sunny “banana belt” micro-climate with all-day sun (Feb. to Nov.).

About Andrew (or Russian River Vacation Homes)
I must have been an innkeeper in a previous life because I love stewarding this tranquil retreat for folks who want to slow down, reconnect with nature, and share intimate time with a loved one. The setting is a sunny and private waterfront opening in the coastal forest. The 1/2 acre property is graced with a pebble beach and 600-year-young redwoods. I named it “Sequoia Beach Dreamery.” Guests LOVE this place. And their guest book comments remind me how much I enjoy both the peaceful setting and its closeness to all that this magical part of northern California has to offer. Chances are you’ll come to think of it as your own dreamy getaway. Indeed, think of it as your NEW BACK YARD.
Andrew (or Russian River Vacation Homes) purchased this House in 1997
Why Andrew (or Russian River Vacation Homes) chose Cazadero
The first time I drove along Big Austin Creek I was smitten – kinda like how you feel when you first fall in love with your mate. I searched for a year until I found the sweetest spot offering views up and down the year-round creek. I had looked at properties right on the Sonoma coast, but I found them to be windy and foggy too much of the time. But the Dreamery is in a protected 'banana belt' micro-climate -- just one coastal range removed from the ocean. I chose Cazadero because it’s off the touristy circuit, yet close enough to enjoy the coastline (15 min), the Russian River (10 min), and wine country attractions. Santa Rosa airport is 45 min. away and it's only 98 min. to the Golden Gate Bridge (I timed it!). You'll be close to world-class amenities and everything this eco-adventure region has to offer.
What makes this House unique
We’ve given special attention to creating a calming atmosphere with extra touches that offer you an ongoing sense of “Greeting.” The goal is to delight our guests who seek a break from the Hurley-Burly of the fast-paced urban scene. Visit the Dreamery, fill your lungs with fresh country air, and feel the Calm.

This is, by far, the most beautiful place we've ever stayed in. The songs of the great sequoias surround... the accommodations are luxurious... the bathroom remodel is to die for... and the hot tub under the stars can't be beat! Great upgrade with the smart TV! This was our second trip and we plan on making it an annual event!
Dear Tracy and J, ... Deep gratitude to you. We're delighted you love the newly remodeled bathroom as much as we do.

To make your next trip a little easier, I am now offering promo codes: "DREAMERY50" will give you a $50 discount on a stay of two days or longer. And "DREAMERY100" is good for a $100 discount on a stay of one week or longer. Meanwhile, the serenity of Austin Creek and the sacred Sequoias await your next trip. Many blessings -- Andrew --

An Excellent place to renew your soul and body
We had the best time ever. This place changed me; it gave my spirit calm.
My husband and my daughter connected with each other and to nature. This place is magical and all things that are good for the soul.
Let us come again, I ask the Universe
Thank you dear guests. It's a pleasure to offer a peaceful respite from the hectic pace of the urban scene. Namaste.
This is an amazing and peaceful oasis!
A little bit of paradise
This is the perfect property if you are looking for a place to relax. Sure, it is a little bit off the beaten track, but it is worth it. Instead of driving and driving to find the great place for picnic, you will find perfection in your own backyard. The deck (with two dining tables) looks over a peaceful creek. And the hot tub is a wonderful place to star gaze. And the scent of the redwood trees wakes up your senses. Oh, and if you want to know about the house. It is great too. Wonderful couches, perfect mattress and a renovated bathroom with heated floors. I can't say enough great things about this piece of paradise. Everything is top shelf.
Thank you for your visit to the Dreamery -- and the great review. I hope you returned home safely with some fond memories of your time here.
Because you took good care of the propetry, you saved the $100 cleaning fee. Please know that you will be welcomed back.
You can easily check availability calendar any time.

Wishing you Peace and Joy. The redwoods and creek await your next visit.
Such a beautiful location. It was peaceful and charming. The kids loved skipping rocks in the water.
This was a peaceful vacation in a beautiful location. I didn’t see another person while we were at the property. Remote and blissfully serene.
It's an honor to share the Dreamery property with you and your family. Thank you for visiting.
A perfect getaway with many meaningful personal touches.
My wife and I had a great stay here this February. The home is near a few other properties and the secluded road but still somehow feels like it’s a thousand miles away from anything. Loved the stream out back, the provided bird seed to see the show of woodpeckers and jays on the deck, and the romantic fireplace for those chilly winter evenings. Definitely recommended!
Lovely to hear about your experiences. Thank you for taking such great care of the cottage. You will be welcomed back with open arms and a warm hospitality.
Unique outdoor 'REDWOOD CATHEDRAL', hanging footbridges, and year-round WATERFALL are within walking distance. We are located in the the Russian River appellation. Dozens of wineries are nearby - wine tasting, fine dining easily accessible. There is a public swimming pool in Rio Nido about 30 minutes away (Rio Nido Roadhouse). The villages of Jenner-By-The-Sea, Duncans Mill, Monte Rio, Guerneville, Occidental, Graton, Forestville, Sebastopol, Freestone, and Healdsburg are a short drive, so shopping, dining, visiting artists' studios and galleries, and antique collecting are easy activities.
