Nice House a Few Issues

  • 3 of 5

It is a nice house and was clean when we arrived. It is a little tricky to find the driveway but the privacy is worth it. An oddity is that there is no covering in the master bath shower window and a neighbor could potentially see inside if they are on their deck. We had an issue of running out of internet time which the owner promptly handled and purchased more internet for us, we were at the end of the month for internet service. A bigger problem was the heat wave in California at the time, the air conditioning was working fine and then as the heat wave went on it stopped. We turned it off and then back on and it seemed to work for a while but then stopped again. I know they tried to get someone out quickly but that did not happen until we left. We were told we would get a refund of $200 for the inconvenience which we agreed to but NEVER RECEIVED. They said we did not know how to use the thermostat but my Engineering husband can build a thermostat I believe he knows how to use one. We had eventually turned off the air-conditioning so when they had it looked at it was off and we were told we did not have it on so they wanted us to pay for the service visit. Then we were told it has some type of savings device to keep power usage down in the hottest part of the day, if this is the case people should be warned that the air-conditioning may not work in a heat wave. Still waiting on my refund.

Great Stay in Wine Country

  • 5 of 5

My Husband and I just returned from our stay in The Grange House. We went with two other couples and a baby. Our stay was for 3 nights. It was perfect! The home's location was amazing. It felt very secluded but yet still close to everything we wanted to do (wine tasting/breweries). We actually spent most of our time at the house though. The views were unbelievable and better than we even expected. It was so fun walking around the property and watching the farm animals below. The house itself was amazing. The layout and decor are so on point! The open floor plan makes it easy to sit comfortably and interact with each other while cooking, playing pool, and relaxing. The home came equipped with everything we could have wanted. We cooked every meal here and never felt like we were missing anything. The kitchen is insane! A complete chef's kitchen. Bedrooms and bathroom were also great. The EO soaps were a very pleasant surprise. Lastly, the pool was pristine and the best location to spend most of the weekend. We all decided that we would definitely come back to this house again...and hopefully we will soon! Thank you, Karen for being a great host!

Fantastic views!!

  • 4 of 5

We chose this house because of the location, and the views. We went with another couple, so the house had plenty of room for us. Not an issue to find either, even though this is in the back roads of Santa Rosa. When we drove up, we were instantly wowed by the views. This is at the top of a hill, and there are stunning views all the way around the house. I couldn't get enough the entire stay!

Overall, the house is great. The kitchen is well stocked, and massive, plenty of room if you enjoy cooking. We didn't take advantage of anything but the coffee maker unfortunately, but enjoyed that daily. We did use the pool table, and enjoyed the tv/lounge area every night. Unfortunately, the evenings were a little too chilly to enjoy the deck or pool. I think the only reason we wouldn't give 5 stars are that the bathrooms are a little dated (master bath especially). A minor detail, but noticeable in a house that has so much else going for it. We also had some issues with the wifi, although the property manager was easy to communicate with and very apologetic for the issues we had.

We found the location to be perfect for exploring all directions in Sonoma county. We picked a different direction each day, and were less than 45 min from Healdsburg, the coast, and Sonoma proper. Very easy to get to and from this house. Glen Ellen is very close, and such a cute little town! Matanzas Creek winery is right down the road, and while we didn't visit this time, have in the past and really enjoyed it there. We were recommended Stark's steak house for dinner one evening, and were not disappointed. Because of the location, it appeared to be more of a local type place, but food was great, prices reasonable, and the atmosphere was really nice. It was also within 15 min of the house.

Overall, we had a great time at this house. I would not hesitate to stay here again!
