About this listing

My sunny '70s 2 bedroom cabin with exposed redwood cathedral beam ceilings has amazing canyon views. There's a hot tub and a small one bedroom outbuilding that's its own little getaway. It's in a very special neighborhood with really nice people.

The space

Vacation Rental Permit # ZPE16-000, Transient Occupancy Certificate #2650N. My house was part of a special group of homes designed and built by a gay couple in the late '70s. Their thought and detail is seen everywhere in the house. It's not a big home, but it's designed to maximize space. Exposed redwood cathedral ceilings are in the living room and there are 2 bedrooms. A very large lower deck contains a hot tub, outdoor shower and a small cabin that has a bed. Truly a special getaway the owner has decided to let others enjoy.

Guest access

Guests will have access to hot tub and outdoor shower. Outdoor shower and running outside water may be off in the winter due to freezing pipes.

Interaction with guests

I won't be around during the stay, but am available at all times. I can have as much interaction as necessary including the actual stay. I prefer to answer questions and help as much as I can.

Other things to note

It's a one mile walk to the river- head out on the 116 for a short walk to Odd Fellows Road and hang a right. There's a cool bridge and beach area. Continue across the bridge in the summer and you'll get to Korbel. At the house AT&T has the best mobile reception. There is a landline there if needed.

This is not a house for large parties. There is only one bathroom. If it's discovered there are more than the permitted amount of guests during a stay airbnb will be notified. Extra guests beyond the limit of four need to be negotiated with owner. Small dogs are negotiable but I need to discuss this in advance. No cats please. No smoking in the house. I'd prefer to not have smoking on the decks due to possible burns and risk of fire. I expect guests to not be loud at night outside past 9pm to respect the neighbors. Official quiet time is between 10pm and 7am per Sonoma County restrictions. To be considerate of the neighbors please do not have any large parties during the day or night. My place is a relaxing retreat and is best used that way!
Most of the homes in the area like this one use septic systems. Please don't flush any objects beyond normal bathroom usage and toilet paper- it's a very sensitive ecosystem.

This was one of the best AirBnB's I've ever stayed at. The pictures don't do justice just to how stunning this place is. From the deck view to the art and decor and furniture, everything is so well thought out.

Great place for a long-term stay! We stayed for 11 days at Bob's super cool place. Bob is a gracious host and quick to respond to any questions or communication. He's one of the best hosts we've experienced. There is plenty of information about how nice it is from the other reviews so I'll focus on a longer term stay. We appreciated the closet space in one of the bedrooms to hang our stuff, and there were a few empty dresser drawers to use also. That's helpful for settling in. We used the grill in the evening once, which worked great, and mostly cooked breakfast every morning. If you're into doing a lot of cooking at the house, it's an electric stove and no garbage disposal, but that didn't bother us. The kitchen is well stocked with anything you need and a nice big fridge. The house gets tons of natural light and the big ceiling fan in the living room helped with cooling. Great shower, and the washer and dryer were also nice to use for our longish stay. Beds were very comfortable as was all of the furniture. Eating breakfast on the top deck in the am sun and the hot tub under the stars were highlights for us. We highly recommend Bob's place, especially if you need a place for a week or more!

What a wonderful home! Bob is the perfect host. Four of us stayed in Bob's home for a planning retreat and we had all that we needed. The house did get pretty warm during the day, but we managed. We didn't have many reasons to leave the house over the weekend, but when we did we went into town for dinner at Seaside Metal oyster bar and it was DELICIOUS. Many charming restaurants and shops nearby. Large redwoods line the hillsides. The hot tub and outdoor shower are incredible. We highly recommend this gorgeous home!

Amazing property - very accurate to photos, and the scenery and gorgeous redwoods are even better in person! Bob was a great host - very fast and accurate communication, and he provided a very helpful house book with awesome local recommendations. Hope to stay again in the future!

Bob's house is thoughtfully designed and has interesting furniture and art, but most importantly, the windows bring the beautiful outdoors into the home. Really enjoyed the hot tub as well.

Bob's house is like nothing you've ever seen -- the architecture of the house itself and the decor inside are unusual and fun. Far from a generic rental, it feels like a place that is lived in and cared for by real people. The house is nestled in a gorgeous setting and cleverly built to highlight the natural beauty.

Bob's place was great. Easy to get into town and as described. Hot tub was lovely. The house does get a bit warm, but we stayed during a heatwave, and spent time enjoying the outdoors!

I'm a creative director and appreciate all of what Northern California has to offer. I've looked to find special architecturally interesting and significant homes as I love the period of architecture in the area from the mid to late '60s, as well as 1970s. My properties are thoughtfully decorated to the period they were designed, yet updated appropriately.

I've been collecting special mid-century furniture, objects and artwork. I'm also into vintage muscle cars. I'm on the board of an organization to document and help preserve buildings of the modern movement. I'm not a big TV watcher, but never tire of the classic TV sitcoms of the past. I don't do reality TV as I'd rather use the time reading about architecture or design! Or going outside.

I love traveling to Europe occasionally, as well as I'll always love Hawaii. I've been to all the islands but Kauai.

My place in Guerneville affords access to great local food, as well as some awesome wineries. I feel fortunate to be so close to such amazing places!

In my job and in my life, I'm very detail and goal-oriented. I hope you see that detail and care in both of my homes and enjoy your stay!
