Sebastopol studio description

To those of you who are concerned about the recent earthquake, the effected area was in Napa which is east of Sebastopol. Thankfully we are fine and had absolutely no damage. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those in Napa who are having to deal with this hardship.

Sonoma county was recently ranked the number one premier wine destination in the U.S. (ahead of Napa Valley) and the number two wine destination in the world, second only to Tuscany! 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!

Please note, we have a 4 night minimum stay year round.

This vacation rental is perfect for:
* A Romantic getaway for honeymooners or to celebrate anniversaries
* Food lovers
* Wine tasting
* An active vacation of hiking, bicycling, zip-lining, swimming and more
* A writers' retreat
* Holistic care and healing
* Reading, relaxing, and getting pampered
* Shopping, antiquing and thrifting
* House hunting
* Gambling

You can walk to more than a dozen wonderful places to eat, including Peter Lowell’s, Forchetta Bastioni, Sushi Tozai, Eight, French Garden, Hana Sushi, Zazu, GTO's Seafood House, K & L Bistro and many more.

Located in the Russian River appellation, you can take a short drive to numerous award winning wineries including: Iron Horse, Lymar Estates, Merry Edwards, Graton Ridge, Russian River Vineyards, Marimar Torres, Dutton-Goldfield and many others. 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. The Barlow also offers Taylor Maid coffee, Guayaki Yerba Mate teas, lavender, frozen treats, books, breads and will be the year-round host of the Sebastopol farmer's market. Zazu, one of our guests' favorite restaurants, is now located there. All these wonderful things are just a mile from the studio!

If hiking or biking is your passion, we are a block from the West County trail and a short walk to Laguna de Santa Rosa and Ragle Ranch Regional Park. And now you can walk to Uber Bikes, a premier bike rental store!

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.

And we're a short drive from the new Weill Hall, the centerpiece of the Green Music Center at Sonoma State University!

Also within walking distance of our vacation rental is live theatre, unique shopping boutiques, a farmers market, Whole Foods, a 9 screen movie theatre and Screamin’ Mimi’s – the best home-made ice cream around!

              Vineyards and Local Wine Tasting

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2008

              About the owner: 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. Our 2012 Turtle Vines Pinot Noir and 2013 Sauvignon blanc is now released. 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.

              Why the Owner Chose Sebastopol:
              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 Unique Benefits at this Studio:
              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. Vacation rental guests enjoy a significant discount on our Pinot Noir and exclusive access to our limited volume Sauvignon blanc, while supplies last.
