About Marcela Arowcavage

Marcela has lived in Sonoma County for over 30 years and has raised 3 children in Cloverdale and still lives in Sonoma County.

Marcela Arowcavage purchased this house in 2012

Why Marcela Arowcavage chose Windsor

I love Sonoma County's climate and it has been my life time dream to own a property with fruit trees. I am very grateful to have found this country haven. I want to share this environment with others.

What makes this house unique

I fell in love with the country feel in the middle of the city. Close to all of the amenities. I love sitting on the deck and listening to the birds that reside on the property, including owls, hawks, blue jays, and humming birds. It is very peaceful and special.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Had a lovely time in wine country on a family vacation. Your home provided a wonderful base for our activities. Extremely comfortable and convenient. The outdoor space is beautiful and peaceful, and the inside was comfortable and spacious. All five of us really enjoyed our stay"

It is in good shape and was very pleasant. It was much larger than expected. My only complaint was the front furnace ran on a preset program and despite the instruction book and phone assistance we could not get it reset. We had to move to the back of the house in early morning to get warm( spacious and sunny) where there is a second furnace. We hope the house escaped the fire. We left the morning that the fire started and are heartbroken for the area. We would stay here again without question.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your great review and alerting us to the front furnace issue! We are so sorry about the inconvenience. We take our guests comfort very seriously. After the call from you and the reset by us, we thought the issue was resolved. However; the heater was still not turning on in a consistent manner. A qualified technician has resolved this problem.

Excellent Place to Stay in Wine Country

  • 5 of 5

This home is centrally located to several of the Sonoma County AVAs if you're there for wine tasting. We were there with friends who had recently passed their intro Sommelier exams, we enjoyed this house so much for it's outdoor patio, and large format, it basically has two master living areas on opposite ends which was perfect for us. It is incredibly well appointed and had everything we needed for cooking breakfasts. The grocery store Olivers is only 5 minutes away. The location was also perfect for dinners out as Healdsburg and Santa Rosa are only 10-15 minutes drive and there are plenty of places to choose from. This house has a great atmosphere, we definitely recommend it.

Windsor Home

We have rented lots of homes and this one was one of the best. We were a large (8) group in town for a wedding and this home was perfect. The layout works great for large groups. The house is close to downtown. We all agreed that we will only stay here for all future visits.

Well cared-for home

  • 4 of 5

We (7 adults) stayed at Twelve Palms for one week. The location is perfect for wine tasting excursions. We also went to Bodega Bay and Sonoma Lake where we spent an afternoon on a party boat on the lake. The house was immaculate, and every thought was given to our comfort, including lovely linens and towels. We love to cook together and the kitchen had everything we needed, from spices to high end appliances to cooking utensils. It is obvious that Marcela takes great pride in her home and providing everything her guests might need during their stay. The one negative was the yard. It was very overgrown, as were all of the yards in the neighborhood.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! These are half acre properties and there are lots of fruit trees and plants! We were waiting for the fruit trees to be harvested before we trim them back. We work hard to keep up with our yard. Ron & Marcela
