If you’re looking for an extremely clean, comfortable, nicely furnished place for several nights or more that’s convenient to everything you want to see and do in Wine Country…
If you want to be in the Santa Rosa area without having to see the city right outside your window…
If you want to relax in a tasteful, peaceful environment within easy reach of Sonoma County's best hiking and biking trails...
You’ll find all the comforts of home—and then some—at the Santa Rosa Creekside Studio. The studio is located near major highways on the southeast side of Santa Rosa next to a creek that runs through the Bennett Valley area. The green canopy of trees and lush foliage outside your window will make you quickly forget you’re staying in the heart of Wine Country’s largest city!
Please note that the studio is a detached unit located adjacent to our home in a suburban neighborhood. Although you’ll have plenty of privacy while sitting in the hot tub or relaxing in the garden courtyard next to the unit, you will hear the sounds of civilization in the surrounding area. If you want a remote rural setting, this is not your best choice. But if you want a comfortable, elegant hideaway nearby everything you want to see and do, the Santa Rosa Creekside Studio can’t be beat!
The Santa Rosa Creekside Studio is literally minutes from dozens of Sonoma County’s finest wineries, the Russian River, redwood forest hiking trails, Sonoma State University and much more. Some of the nearby attractions (an hour or less) include San Francisco, Marin County, the Golden Gate Bridge, Bodega Bay and California’s breathtaking northern coastal areas, Sonoma, Napa, natural hot spring and mineral baths… the list goes on.
Perhaps the best description of our unit comes from satisfied guests... be sure to read the reviews.

Barbara and Tim are your property owners, and Tim will handle the communication regarding your rental inquiries and booking. Barbara is a psychotherapist, and Tim is a marketing consultant and website designer.
We have worked together to create this vacation rental unit and put love into the project. We want you to enjoy your stay, and so we've tried to imagine what we would want if we were staying there.
If it's within reason and we can help, we'll do what we can. Our goal is to have you come back and refer your friends!
Tim Smith purchased this studio in 2010
This studio is on our residential property, so it wasn't a separate purchase (as the question kind of implies...) Our goal was to create a vacation rental that would give us enough extra income to do more vacationing ourselves! The space was completely refurbished in July, 2010.
Probably the best aspect of the Santa Rosa Creekside Studio is where it's located. You get a private, woodsy view on the banks of a creek that runs through Santa Rosa's Bennett Valley area. But you are just minutes from dozens of wineries, and an hour or less to the Pacific Coast, San Francisco, the Russian River, Napa and Sonoma, Redwood forests, you name it. We're only a couple minutes from two major highways, and you can get around Santa Rosa from here on foot, by bike and by car. Downtown Santa Rosa is just a 7-minute drive.
Our week at the Santa Rosa Creekside studio was perfect. It was so conveniently located to shops, restaurants, and the wonderful activities of the area. Tim and Barbara are generous and accommodating and available yet provide the privacy of a secluded property. The studio itself is very clean and provides all that you would need for a stay to cook meals. My son cooked a gourmet meal on the grill and we sat on the lovely patio with a bottle of wine and then enjoyed the hot tub. The couch provides an extra bed with a topper than inflates and is as comfortable as any regular bed. We would definitely return if coming to the area again!
Tim & Barbara have provided a very enjoyable spot from which to explore and experience Santa Rosa and the surrounding wine country. My wife and I stayed in the studio for four nights and were pleased with the accommodations. Being a studio, it is a nice space for two. They left several friendly notes, a small bowl of candy and a bottle of wine to ensure we had what we needed to feel welcome. Although our schedule was busy with family matters to attend to in the area, we indeed did feel welcome. We enjoyed the hot tub behind the studio, several times including a lovely full moon late one evening. We heartily encourage others to look into this nice rental and would expect them to also enjoy the experience. Thanks Tim & Barbara for your hospitality.
My wife and I were very happy with the rental...our first time using a vrbo...the location in Santa Rosa was easy to find and also in a very nice neighborhood...Tim and Barbara had a couple of minutes to say hi and offer some local knowledge for our stay...I can never give a 5 star rating for any review especially for a hotel or vrbo because the beds are never as good as the one you own or at least I haven't found one yet...
I enjoyed my time in Santa Rosa and the stay here was nice with the hot tub and very nice bed and stores close by.
Everything was very nice and clean. It was near many Santa Rosa hiking areas.
Very clean and comfortable bed.
My husband ran in the Santa Rose half-marathon in late August, and we stayed in this lovely cottage for four nights. The hosts couldn't have been nicer, and it felt like they had anticipated our every need. They had a guide to the area with menus from many of the local restaurants, and we planned our meals around that information. We particularly enjoyed the hot tub, especially after the race, when my husband found out that it soon had him feeling better. The neighborhood was very quiet, and we appreciated being right beside the creek with all of its greenery. Shops and restaurants were nearby, and Santa Rose is a nice city to explore. If he decides to do this race again, we'll be back in August!!
I had the pleasure of staying at Tim and Barbara's lovely casita for 3 months while working in Santa Rosa. Tim and Barbara are very thoughtful and excellent hosts that went out of their way to make my stay enjoyable. The apartment is a wonderful space - clean, well kept, well thought out from an amenities standpoint, and the neighborhood is quiet, safe, and convenient jumping off point for adventures in wine country!
Close proximity to Sonoma State University, live theater, Summer Repertory Theater, performing arts center, outdoor music, farmers markets, etc. The area is a biker's paradise, with numerous trails and parks within easy reach without driving there.
