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 and our goal is to create a "beyond expectations" experience. We seek to delight guests in every possible way and we ask that you respect the following:
*NOTE* - NO MORE than 4 PEOPLE (including INFANTS/CHILDREN and DAY GUESTS), ABSOLUTELY NO SMOKING/VAPING, and NO DOGS/PETS (of any size or breed). 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!).

EASY LOCATION - EASILY ACCESSIBLE

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.).
