"We stayed at Nick and Diane's lovely guest house for two weeks and were very sad to leave. It was far and away the most idyllic home and grounds we've ever rented and we've stayed in houses all over the country. The pictures represent the home and property exactly.
Nick was readily available without being obstrusive. He and Diane are lovely people and made us feel comfortable right away. We were welcome to pick the abundance of gorgeous fruits growing on the trees all over the property and enjoyed baking in a kitchen equipped for all of our needs.
Our toddler had toys to enjoy in the home and there was a safety gate available for the stairs. If you have a child and are concerned about safety, we simply removed the ladder to loft before she noticed and she never wanted to play up there. Best of all there was a fairy tale garden to enjoy with swings and hills and plenty for imaginative minds to explore. Her favorite activity (other than splashing in the pool) was picking blackberries and watching for the resident red fox. Owls at night provided more magical entertainment.
The pool was a truly stunning setting: hummingbirds and views of the mountains made afternoon swims a real treat. We had a few memorable lunches there.
The reviewer who mentioned the comfortable sofa (and beds) was correct: it was enough space for us all to spread out and when more family joined us for the second week; we never felt crowded. I was concerned the one bath would be an issue but it was seperate enough from the master bedroom and the tub made bath time easy with my daughter. I enjoyed waking early and opening the sliding door to the porch off the bedroom. Silence and peace was everywhere.
We stayed during some hot days but with windows open and fans on we never employed the window A/C. The downstairs master bedroom always remained cool. Nights and mornings are quite cool, even in summer.
If you have any doubts about staying in Sebastapol, please try it out. We were pleasantly surprised by the abundance of vegetarian, farm-to-table, eclectic restaurants (Himalayan Curry house, Slice of Life, Peter Lowell) and the lovely and unique Barlow area where we enjoyed the weekly farmer's market and many a juice and coffee. It was a short drive to the gorgeous coast as well as redwoods, rivers, farms and wineries. At the end of the day returning to our charming home was a pleasure.
Thanks for the wonderful memories, Nick and Diane. Zoey says hi!"

"This was a perfect week. Our family was together for our son's wedding. The house provided us with plenty of room, was truly comfortable and the views from the deck were beautiful. Kids enjoyed the playground, walks to the park nearby; especially the carousel and the train rides. We recommend the Children's Museum as well nearby Healdsburg and Windsor downtown. Great restaurants and fun visiting wineries. No worries everything was provided in the home, a very restful week. Will visit again.
The owner was wonderful to work with, made everything run smoothly. Will visit again."

"We had an excellent stay in this amazing home. It's tucked away but not far from town, and there is wonderful hiking right out the front door. Susan was very helpful. We look forward to staying here again!"
