"8 of us spent 2 nights here celebrating collective 60th birthdays, and all of us ended up wanting to buy this home. It's that special. We had spent the previous 3 days in Santa Rosa doing wine tasting and came here for a different Sonoma County perspective, and got it.
We rented the entire house. The upstairs, Casa Panama, is adorable. Great views, well furnished, great kitchen, etc. The deck off the kitchen area has great views. There are 2 bathrooms for the 3 bedrooms, which are all equally nice.
The downstairs, Casitana, has one bedroom with great views, private bath, washer/dryer, and nice living room.
Not sure I'd want to share this house with strangers as it's pretty close quarters.
There are beautiful gardens, lots of outdoor seating, a gas grill, a huge deck and hot tub. Just fabulous. Oh, and the views.....simply magnificent.
Although there are neighbors/houses close by, you don't see them, hear them, or come in contact with them. It's like this house was on an island.
One day we went to the nearby (20 minute drive) Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve (well worth a visit), and the other day we went to the Fort Ross Winery, which was only 20 minutes north along that gorgeous Highway 1. Well worth a visit; very good wine.
Anyway, I highly, highly recommend this property and know for a fact that I speak for the rest in my group when I say that. In fact, you could base your wine county stay here as the Sonoma wineries are about 30-45 minutes away (hire a driver!).
And we saw NO mosquitos during our time there."
