Surrounded by redwoods and walking distance to the Russian River, this pet friendly studio is great for getting away. Studio has queen bed, full bathroom, kitchenette. We live above the studio, join us for wine!
Studio is the lower unit of my house, has its own entrance, heater, small deck, bathroom and small kitchenette (hot plate, microwave, dorm fridge and coffee maker)
This is not a fancy cabin in the woods, no wood stove or hot tub and no TV. There is Internet (wifi) books, games and a nice area to walk. The property is walking distance to the river, which is about 1/4 mile away down to the semi-secret beach in Villa Grande.
I have Thursday's blocked off as the day I deep clean the Studio, if you want to book on this date please schedule around it and we can discuss your stay, as long as you do not mind a possible later check in while I clean :-)
2.5 miles west is the Blue Heron, a great bar/tavern with live music most nights. 1.5 miles to the east is Lucy's Lounge which is a great spot to get breakfast and watch just about any sporting event. Further down 116 is Northwood Golf Course, a wonderful 9 hole course architected by Alister MacKenzie.
We live above the studio, we try to be quiet and if you do hear us I hope that you will come up, say hi and join us for a glass of wine or please let us know to turn it down!
Guests have access to downstairs studio, washer/dryer.
I live in the unit above and am available most evenings if guests have any requests or need anything. If you hear us chatting please feel free to come up for a glass of wine! :-)
Note that this is a studio in the redwoods and there are spiders and wild animals. Raccoons come by in the evenings and can get into just about everything.
The studio is the lower level of my house, has its own heater, bathroom and small kitchenette with a fridge, hot plate, microwave and coffee maker.
If you have your own air mattress it will fit in the studio, you will want to bring your own bedding/pillow/blanket for your air mattress.
I do not have a cleaning fee as I hope that folks who stay here have the same mindset I do of, "pack it in, pack it out", and try to leave places as they were when you arrived. I do have a $100 Security deposit from which a cleaning fee can be applied if you prefer to have a cleaning fee charged instead of being tidy. I am happy to say that so far I have never had to apply it :-)
Guests should be ok with cats! Minou will come greet you, if you prefer to not have a cat sit on your bags you may want to avoid letting him in.
Neighbors all respect each other and our property. Please only park in my driveway and lot and not in neighbors driveways. My driveway is the one with the gravel in front of the house. The deck across the street belongs to my neighbors.
Please no smoking. If you are a smoker this place is not for you. Very strict no smoking policy.
If you have a dog they are welcome but please keep in mind that the people who live here and walk their dogs all keep them on leash - it is the law! There are off-leash trails off of the road where you can take dogs walking off leash. Also, if your dog is cat aggressive this is not the place for you.
I am an easy going adventurer. My professional life is very scheduled so when not working I really enjoy living life unscripted. Currently I am employed at Salesforce and I love it! When not at work my favorite things to do are hiking, paddleboarding, wine tasting, cycling, reading and watching Giants baseball.
I have a cat (Minou) who is very entertaining. I didn't know I was a cat person until this stray entered my life :-)
Through airbnb I have been very fortunate to meet people as a traveler and as a host!
