About the property

Sunny and quiet studio flat in the heart of downtown Sebastopol.


This second floor flat has a fully stocked kitchenette with a 4-burner gas stove and oven, a smart TV equipped with a sound bar and a private Netflix account, WiFi, a ceiling fan, air-conditioner/heater, a walk-in closet with a full washer and dryer, blackout blinds, and a tub and shower in the bathroom.

Guest interaction

Our house is at the front of the flat, and we may or may not see you. We assume people primarily want their privacy; however, we are available for any questions at any time. We are happy to welcome you when you arrive but if that does not work out, we’ll leave the key in a lockbox.

About Shirley + Eric

Welcome to the Sebastopol Ritz listing! We’ve lived in Sebastopol for four years, and we’re looking forward to hosting you. We love to travel and meet new people, enjoy good food and drink, movies, old cars, and friends. We're happy to share with you all our favorite food spots and places to go here in Sonoma County.

Shirley + Eric purchased this apartment in 2016

Why Shirley + Eric chose Sebastopol

The best part of this home is the neighborhood and our location. Even though we are downtown, the traffic noise is minimal as the flat is not street facing. We are less than a 5-minute walk to a live music venue (Hopmonk), with easy access to hiking and bike trails (Joe Rodota Trail/West County Regional Trail/Laguna De Santa Rosa Trail). Walk to restaurants, theaters, shopping, farmer's market, yoga studios, coffee shops and a short hop to Ives Park and community pool.

What makes this apartment unique

The flat is a mere twenty-minute drive to the Russian River or the ocean beaches and cliffs of the famous Sonoma Coast. Walk to small wineries and breweries in Sebastopol or drive to world-renowned Sonoma County vineyards. Regional flights into Santa Rosa (STS), or come up from San Francisco (SFO) or Oakland (OAK).

Housekeeping can be arranged for longer stays (5 days or more).

Perfect Little Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

Shirley + Eric have a beautiful home which we felt very comfortable and welcome in. They have every detail thought through and it was a seamless and relaxing stay at their home. The location is in walking distance of downtown Sebastopol, yet in a moment you are in the beautiful country. Thank you.

Perfect home base for exploring Sonoma wine country

  • 5 of 5

Minimalist decor is crisp but welcoming - if you are not a fan of the fussy chintz-lace-faux-Victoriana overload that so many wine country accommodations seem to think is mandatory, this place is for you. Small but really efficient space is perfect for two, and thoughtfully stocked with everything from chilled filtered water in the fridge to mini toiletries to robes and slippers. Great location - walkable to downtown Sebastopol and easy to get out and about to wine country.

Very clean, accessible, everything one needs; towels, amenities, toiletries, etc. Cheerful!

  • 4 of 5

We arrived late and had a little confusion about where to park due to street resurfacing and it was dark. Best thing to know is there is off-street parking on FRONT of buildings and you will need to walk around to the back entrance where the flat is located-up stairs to yellow door. The flat is spotless and comes equipped with everything you need-hair dryer, soap, shampoo, towels, kitchenette and wifi! The TV streaming service is a little inconsistent, but hopefully you will be out exploring and NOT watching TV. The town of Sebastopol is charming and has great restaurants and coffee at Retrograde! Would totally stay again. The owners are very responsive and their neighbor too! Cheers!

Charming, quiet and oh so clean

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was a delight with all the tiny conveniences from home and clean as a whistle! Comfortable bed, perfect kitchen, plush towels, everything was neatly labeled and easy to use.

Such a convenient location to walk to town and the Barlow area!

Parking was easy, so was getting around.

The owners are kind, lovely and thoughtful in case you need anything. It was hard to leave!

Efficiently comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This rental is just like much of the ikea furniture that furnishes it, clean and efficient. This room isn't big but it's big enough and had everything to make us comfortable. A fully stocked kitchen, laundry, TV, iron, several types of coffee makers, etc. On top of that it's walking distance to downtown Sebastapol. If you're taking a vacation in wine country, libations are definitely going to be a part of your agenda.

If I go to another wedding around Sebastapol, i'll for sure look this place up first.
