About Susan Moinester
My husband, David, and I are 'southernized' former New Yorkers. Born, raised and married in Brooklyn, our adult lives have been enriched by spending them in Memphis, TN where we have come to know and appreciate great music, Slow Food and wonderful friends. We fell in love with Sebastopol and the surrounding area on a romantic vacation in the summer of 2012. We were captivated by the physical beauty and the lifestyle. We never expected to find a house so quickly, as we cannot move for several years. But as soon as we saw this property, we knew that we could not let it go. So until we are able to live in 'Our Home in the Vineyard' full-time, we welcome you and your family to share it with our family.

Why Susan Moinester chose Sebastopol
This property has a magical quality that touched us from the moment we stepped out of the realtor's car; it has held us in its grip ever since. The property stirs your soul while simultaneously imparting a sense of tranquility. You feel exhilarated yet at peace. It is an intangible quality, yet undeniable and while a very personal experience, we have found it to be universal among all those who have visited. Perhaps it is the gentle slope of the hill on which the home rests, the beautiful, terraced gardens that are perennially in bloom, the accessibility of all 3 lush acres or the unusual diversity of the breathtaking views that surround the home. Perhaps it is the fact that the house and the outdoor living areas take full advantage of the spectacular surroundings by bringing the outside into every room. The house is spacious with large rooms and an open floor plan that is unique in this area. It is impossible to capture these qualities from the photos; we invite you to come and experience it for yourself.

Exquisite residence near Sebastopol
This 3-bedroom, 2-bath home could not have been more welcoming for our weekend getaway to the wine country. The home was tastefully decorated, very clean, and had all of the amenities one could want, including a kitchen well stocked for cooking and an outside patio and outdoor kitchen. Plus, the home is located in the middle of a vineyard with terraced flower garden and a separate cutting flower and vegetable garden available to guests. We were treated to fresh figs, strawberries, tomatoes and raspberries during our stay, not to mention a host of fresh herbs. I can't imagine a more perfect place to stay if you are visiting Sonoma!
We had a wonderful 3 days in wine country! Great location for everything we wanted to do.
Susan and Fern could not have been better! Susan was so helpful in giving us ideas before we arrived and as we were getting settled. Beautiful property with everything we needed! We cooked dinner every night to avoid the dark unfamiliar roads after our afternoon of wine tasting. Can’t wait to return!
Romantic get away
My husband and I stayed for an extended weekend. The views and setting were amazing. The house was very peaceful and we could not have been happier with our stay. We are looking forward to visiting again!
Relaxation and Celebration!
We stayed at this amazing property during the weekend of the Santa Rosa Marathon. It was the perfect place to rest and prepare prior and even better to come to after the race and celebrate! The communication with both Susan and her property manager was the best I’ve experienced using Vrbo. The list of recommendations Susan provided was perfect for us. The house itself and the surrounding gardens/vineyard was picturesque. I’ll definitely be recommending this place to friends and family looking to really experience wine country at its best.
beautiful place surrounded by vineyards!
beautiful property - great for a relaxing wknd, and also exploring the vineyards and Russian River!
A place to relax
This is an amazing property to unwind. The back deck is especially beautiful and peaceful and is surrounded by amazingly fragrant flora. The house has everything you could ever want for a home away from home!
Our home is ideally situated to enjoy all that Sonoma County has to offer, indoors and out, all year-round. We are located in the scenic Green Valley in the heart of the Russian River Valley. Our property is just minutes away from dozens of wineries, tasting rooms, microbreweries, bars, world class restaurants and eateries. For less traditional culinary and cultural experiences, don't miss the paella at the Occidental Friday evening Farmers Market (get there early!) and the hippy hash and duck tacos at the Sebastopol Farmers Market on Sunday. Oh... lest we forget, Screamin' Mimi's in Sebastopol - 'Sonoma County's Best Ice Cream' for their olive oil ice cream - or anything else! For groceries, fresh fruits and veggies and a wonderful selection of local wine, we are just 7 minutes from one of the finest markets in Sonoma - Andy's.
We also want to be sure to mention that we are only 6 miles (about a 13-minute drive) from the fabulous, singular Wild Flour Bread Bakery in Freestone. Our perfect day starts with steaming bread, scones and Taylor Maid coffee from Wild Flour, continues to through the quaint town of Bodega for a stop at the artisans' cooperative, antique store and surf shop and then up the spectacular coast from Bodega Bay to Jenner. The coastline is lined with scenic overlooks, hiking trails and diverse accessible beaches. You can continue up the coast but we prefer to turn inland at Jenner for a change to the Russian River scenery and dinner in Monte Rio or Guerneville. The variety of topography, scenery and activities that await you with 20 minutes of our property is truly astounding!
