About Carlos J. Barreda & Jenna A. Kennedy

(picture of Manager, Carlos B. not of owner) Recently retired, we (Peter and Kathleen Dawson) came to Sonoma so we could be close to family, especially our two grandchildren. We wish to be involved with their lives and activities while they grow up. We have many family and friends in the Bay Area. We are respectively a retired music teacher and school psychologist. We live an active lifestyle including running, biking, and Zumba.

Carlos J. Barreda & Jenna A. Kennedy purchased this house in 2011

Why Carlos J. Barreda & Jenna A. Kennedy chose Sonoma

We (Peter and Kathleen Dawson) chose to buy a home in Sonoma because of its location, beauty and closeness to family and friends. We did not initially consider renting it while we returned to rural New York State during the summer months where the rest of our family and friends are (and our original home). Then we started thinking that maybe we should share such a nice place with others while we are not here. Then local friends who are experienced Innkeepers and currently run WineINN and DineINN Taxi/Transportation/Concierge approached us and offered to manage the home as a vacation rental while we are gone. Knowing our guests would be in good hands prompted us to offer our home for the 6 months when we are not here.

What makes this house unique

What a convenient location. 45 minute drive to San Francisco, 15 minute drive to famous Sears Point formerly (Infineon), now Sonoma Raceway (NASCAR, NHRA, AMA etc.). Within a 5 minute walk from our house, there are grocery stores, drug stores, coffee shops, at least 15 restaurants, a movie theater, various stores, a large regional park, a smaller park, 2 minutes from the bike/running/walking path that goes to the Sonoma Square (a 15 minute walk) with some of the best restaurants anywhere, with multiple wineries and wine tasting. Take a leisurely drive up and down Sonoma Valley and visit maybe a 100 wineries in the region (Napa Valley is 20 minutes away).

Wonderful stay in a clean, well-located house!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Verano while attending a wedding in the area and were very pleased with the house. There were 5 of us in the house and we fit comfortably. The house had all of the essentials to make it feel like home for the weekend (towels, extra blankets, shampoo/conditioner, etc.). The house is in a great location nearby a shopping center with a grocery store, pharmacy, and other shops/restaurants. We also enjoyed walking on the nearby bike path which goes right into downtown sonoma. The place was clean, comfortable, and the property manager was super helpful with any questions we had. Overall a great place to stay!

Owner's Response: It gives us great pleasure that our guests come to enjoy our home and the beauty of Sonoma and the surrounding area. We are pleased with our guests who did the current review and they took very good care of our home. Fortunately, our home was spared in the recent and current fires in Sonoma and Napa Counties and those fires are on their way to being fully contained. Most of the destinations in the area were saved and most of the wineries were spared due to the extraordinary efforts of so many first responders and so many others who helped in one way or another. We will continue to offer our home for vacation rental guests during the months we are not here. Even though fees and taxes have gone up in the last couple of years along with our expenses, we will continue to hold the line on our prices and keep them the same next year as this year. Our scheduled last guests for this year unfortunately needed to be cancelled due the danger of the fires at the time but we did make a 100% refund. Sorry their wedding got cancelled! Our thanks to all of our guests this summer.

Great location and great service!

  • 5 of 5

We went to Sonoma on a girl's weekend getaway. It was originally supposed to be 5 of us but due to a hurricane in Florida, only ended up being 4. 5 probably would have been a bit cramped but it fit the 4 of us very comfortably. There was plenty of room inside and outside. The bathrooms were clean/updated and shower pressure was good. The 3 bedrooms were large enough and comfortable. One bed was more futon-like (but not the cheap kind you get in college). The kitchen had everything we needed to make our meals (and a grill outside) and there were restaurants/coffee places nearby if we didn't want to cook:-) It is super close to the bike path that leads right down to the square with beautiful biking scenery on the way. Bikes were in great shape too! Management was very thorough. There was a booklet with everything you needed to know and if I had any questions, Carlos responded asap. Carlos helped us before, during, and after the trip immensely! He even helped arrange our wine tour, got us transportation to dinner out one night, and was able to get us a reservation for dinner someplace that had said it was already booked online. It was a trip we will never forget!

A beautiful house in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible time staying at Casa Verano. Carlos sent me all necessary information ahead of time and made himself available if we needed anything (which we didn't because all questions were answered with the info provided). The entire house was very nice, clean, and ready for us when we arrived. The air conditioning worked well (which was a big plus since it was over 90 degrees most days of our stay), and there were overhead fans as well for nice circulation. The kitchen has everything you need if you want to cook and the living areas are comfortable and spacious. The outdoor area is very nice as well. I can't wait to go back!!!

Excellent home and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Carlos was a great help and so friendly - we couldn't have asked for better service. The home was clean and exactly like the pictures. The kitchen was well stocked and offered a great place to make a meal at the end of a busy day. The home is in a great location in Sonoma and very easy to get the winery's!

Would stay at this great home again when we return to the area.

Excellent Home Base for wine country vacation

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated with family (four couples) while touring wineries in the Russian River Valley and upper Napa Valley, using Casa Verano as home base. We used the crock pot one day to have a meal ready prepared when we got 'home'. We are first time VRBO customers and Casa Verano was very relaxing, romantic, and immaculately clean, just like the photos. Well managed and our security deposit was returned promptly.
