Cozy bedroom with en-suite, private bathroom and snooze-city queen size bed, spacious for one person, and perfect for two. Comfy living room w/Cable TV, kitchen use okay. The house is near downtown Petaluma. Easy access to freeway. Excellent home base for day trips to breweries, wine country, coastal beaches, Sonoma, Napa, and Point Reyes. Enclosed garage for parking, keep this in mind when renting a car. Wifi, self-serve breakfast, pour over coffee.

The space

Upstairs room with connected, private, full bathroom. The bed is a new queen size with a very thick pillow-top mattress, cotton sheets, and down comforter. You will sleep soundly, as it's super comfortable. Couples are welcome although please reserve for 2 guests. Downstairs is a shared space with very comfortable living room, kitchen access. Hosts room is upstairs too, but there are no shared walls.

Free Wifi, HDTV with Netflix and other access. You will have full access to the kitchen just cleanup after yourself. We have a shelf in the fridge with chilled items such as milk and OJ for you, and space for snacks you might bring for yourself. We have an enclosed garage that you'll use for parking. Large vehicles such as SUVs, full sized cars, vans, and utilities trucks won't fit. Parking on the street is limited. Keep this in mind if you are renting a vehicle

We love hosting and want to make sure you enjoy the place and Petaluma. We'll give you an orientation when you arrive, then leave you be. Text me if you need anything at any time during the day. You are our guest and feel responsible of your experience in Petaluma. That said, we are in and out. Weekdays we both work all day, leaving pretty early in the morning. We usually come home for a bit in the early evening, then head out to tennis, gym, or with friends. Weekends vary between doing chores and errands at home to getting out into nature or enjoying downtown Petaluma. Sometimes I make a hot breakfast (not a standard provision), but I usually leave a self serve breakfast with instant oatmeal, rice cakes, coffee and fresh fruit. Willing to accommodate food limitations. If I'm in at night I will be in my own room upstairs, occasionally downstairs to use the kitchen. The living room to the house is yours to relax and enjoy.

Our neighborhood was developed in 2000, so it feels newer. It's quaint, very safe and quiet. It's located right on the Petaluma River, an easy walk to town. I love Petaluma's night life. If you are visiting Petaluma's Lagunitas Brew Co. you might be interested in Taps Petaluma with its collection of 40 microbrews on tap (no bud light or Coors served there). See my guide book for restaurants, walks, and other attractions.

Public transit stop for local buses go directly to town (2 minute ride). I prefer walking. Golden Gate Transit picks up and can take you to the SF, catch the commuter bus if possible (1 hour to city either way). Green taxi is a good taxi service for anywhere around greater Petaluma, and UBER is available Thursday through Sunday with reliability.

I don't mind if guests come home late after a night on the town. Enter quietly and respectful of my neighbors. So go out, have fun, stay out late and enjoy the town.

Guest access

You have access to the living room, and use of the kitchen (shelf in the fridge). Use the garage for parking as street parking is limited. Larger SUVs, full size trucks and vans don't fit in the garage. If you need to do laundry, let us know and we'll show you how to operate the washer and dryer. Feel free to use the TV and accompanying apps (Netflix, Youtube, HBOGo etc) as well.

Interaction with guests

We'll check you in and give you an orientation to the house and Petaluma. We want you to feel at home. Sarah and I work weekdays. We typically have a late dinner together weekdays after tennis and gym activity. We're in and out throughout the weekend. Occasionally our grown kids (young adults) visit and spend the night downstairs. Text or call me if you need anything.

Other things to note

We have breakfast items available on the counter (ex. cereal, oatmeal, english muffins, rice cakes, peanut butter, jam, pour over coffee, and teas). OJ is in the fridge. Typically, I setup pour over Peet's Italian Roast coffee, fresh every morning and leave it on the stove in a hot carafe. If I'm sleeping in, there will be a DIY version. You are welcome to cook your own meals in the kitchen. Feel free to use pots and pans etc. Please cleanup after yourself. No scraps for the dog please.

We live in a friendly cozy quiet neighborhood by the Petaluma River. Parking is limited on the street, so you need to park in our garage, which means larger vehicles do not fit. If you are renting a car we suggest economy and compact cars. Longer midsize cars (ex. Nisson Altima) don't fit well. We give you an opener to use while you are here. You are welcome to use our kitchen, but not our supplies (except what's on the breakfast counter or on the guest shelf in the fridge). We'll leave fruit and juice on that shelf for you to use. The breakfast tray has breakfast and hot drink items, they are for you as well. You are welcome to use pots and pans as long as you cleanup after yourself. Use the fan on the stove, as the smoke detectors are sensitive. We don't allow pets except in special circumstances. The yard is safely enclosed. No smoking inside the house. The river is a great spot to have a smoke. Please conserve water as we are in a drought. Try to keep showers to 5 minutes

Jamie and Sarah are really friendly host. They are always eager to help and give some advices. Their house is nice, in a quiet neighbourhood. Really good deal. Worth to mention they have a cute and really friendly (small) dog.

Jamie and Sarah are terrific hosts! The entire experience was an easy pleasure, from check-in to checkout. The room is just the right size and has an attached, private bathroom. Location is great, and garage parking was so convenient. And Birdie, their four-legged friend, is a joy. Thank you for a great stay.

James and Sarah have a very cozy room in their Petaluma home, just a hop, skip and jump from downtown (you could easily walk there). The bed was probably one of the most comfortable I have ever slept on in an AirBnb and the room itself was exceptionally clean, as was the adjoining guest bathroom. All the little details were taken care of, from soaps and toiletries to simple snacks and breakfast items laid out to get your day started. I had some brief interactions with the hosts and they were both extremely friendly, easy-going and helpful with getting me situated. I'd definitely book there again without hesitation!

Thank you Jamie, Sarah, Madison, and Birdie! I've never felt like I've left home to come home until staying with these kind folks; they truly make you feel part of the Petaluma family. Before I even woke up, Jamie would text me with a good morning and suggestions for the day. From breakfast at Della Fattoria, to skipping Sonoma/Napa in favor of Alexander Valley, to what to prioritize in Point Reyes, we always had our next destination in mind thanks to his diligence and thoughtfulness. Despite the available fresh coffee and healthy breakfast options at home, we rarely had the stomach space to take advantage of it with all of their food suggestions. There was literally that much to taste test in the area! The room itself was perfect for two though there is room on the floor for an additional adult if necessary. The bed was big, soft, and cozy. There were extra bedding options in the closet. A large window assured we had as much light as we wanted. The bathroom featured a full bath and our hosts provided various small shampoos, conditioners, body washes, and soap for our use. All walls featured beautiful art. Northern California does have drought but keeping showers to 5 minutes did not inhibit us and made us more mindful about conserving. While we were allowed to using the living room and kitchen within reason we had such a busy vacation that we did not spend as much time in those areas. However, they were spotless! Lastly, the garage was able to fit our Nissan Altima, a fairly regular sized sedan, after I moved a bike to the side. The neighborhood was cute and somewhere I could see myself living. Lastly, we would recommend visiting in Petaluma: Petaluma Pie Company, Della Fattoria, and Brewsters. In Alexander Valley/Healdsburg: Medlock Ames (ask for Dan), Hawkes Wine (hang with Capone), Siduri (ask for Ryan), and Wright's Beach. In Point Reyes: Lighthouse Point, the Marshall Store for Oysters. We would also recommend listening to whatever Jamie and Sarah recommend. Thanks again guys and I hope to see you soon! What a great introduction to the west.

Jamie and Sarah were extremely kind and hospitable hosts. Their dog, Birdie, is a little ball of equal parts energy and sweetness. Jamie set up coffee for us in the morning and after chatting a bit, left us with some suggestions on local sights and great off-the-beaten path restaurants. The room was very comfortable and clean and the walk in to town was about 15 minutes (Uber available too!).

Jamie's place provided us with the convenience of home while having the opportunity to enjoy our various activities and family visiting. Being on the water is an additional enjoyment! Great location!! Thanks Sarah and Jamie!

Jamie was a fabulous host! Very friendly and supportive. The space was great. The room comfortable with a very nice queen bed. Would recommend for staying in Petaluma. Since I didn't have car, I used Uber and got most place for $10 a ride.

I love traveling because I love learning culture and everything associated with it: people, languages, food, music, art, history and landscapes. I've been to Australia, Europe, and lived in Mexico. Being in education, I get to make the best of my summers. Then you'll find me in the mountains, on the tennis court, and going off on little trips to cities and countries far and wide. I love cooking and beer AND sharing it with others. On the weekends I'm seeking fresh air new outdoor experiences. Most of all I love hosting friends and family.
