"Our group of five adults was heading to Healdsburg to a wedding after visiting San Francisco. The wedding party was all staying at a local hotel that cost $400/room per night! Since we needed three rooms, I decided to look at a vrbo instead since we had a vehicle. Well, I admit, one of the reasons I chose this house was due to the price and the phrase used in the description,”budget friendly.” I thought whatever it looked like, we could handle it for two nights. WOW!!! Were we ever surprised!! We loved this house!! Even “hard to please hubby” said over and over how great the place was! I can tell you first off…the pictures DO NOT do this place justice! From the moment we arrived, we knew we had found the perfect place for us! There was a cute easel chalkboard on the table that welcomed us – along with a bottle of wine. But, not only that, the owners had picked some tomatoes and other vegetables right out of their garden that morning for us! YUM! Everything about the house was great! We loved all the windows that brought in the natural light and how easy it was to raise and lower them. We thought, coming from the 106 degree Dallas temperatures, we might be in trouble with no air conditioning. Not at all!! We opened the windows and the cool breeze was very comfortable. Even at night with the windows closed, the temperature was perfect! When the owner says “everything is furnished,” she means EVERYTHING! The kitchen, bathrooms, and laundry area had every supply you might need. The two bathrooms were great for our group of five. We had just come from a one bathroom home in San Francisco, so we really appreciated the two large bathrooms. The house was great, but the YARD!! I spent thirty minutes just walking around the yard looking at all of the beautiful plants….that would have lived about 10 minutes in the Dallas heat! The grounds are just gorgeous! We picked apples for breakfast….we beat the deer to them in the morning! There are several outdoor areas to sit, visit, and have a beverage. It was so relaxing just to sit and listen to the birds. Someone mentioned in a review that the road was nearby…yes, it is but not enough cars go by to be a distraction whatsoever!! That was a definite non-issue for us! The setting was truly beautiful! We were disappointed that we only had two nights to enjoy this home and that a lot of our time had been spent at the wedding. We will have to return and stay a little longer! Book this house! You will LOVE it! We sure did!"
