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!

Amazing stay that made our family reunion an outstanding success.

  • 5 of 5

What can I say about this property? It fulfilled every expectation we had going into a little family reunion we had planned with my mother, two brothers, and sister. We value cleanliness, comfort, and a touch of sophistication when booking properties - this had it all. A modern ranch house decked out in all the needed creature comforts - a kitchen outfitted with all the latest appliances and space to socialize, an outdoor grill, WIFI and a flat screen TV (if that floats your boat), spacious beds and multiple showers and toilets, pool table, laundry room, etc. The property also overlooks valleys and vistas that catch the morning sunrise and sunsets - so beautiful. The location was central to side trips: we went to Healdsburg one day, Bodega Bay the next, and also meandered through Wine Country to our heart's content.

One suggestion: wifi is free but there is a limit to usage. Such a needed thing today (unfortunately) - I don't want to throw the property under the bus for this minor point but I wanted this review to be valid and real for the benefit of other travelers and the owners.

Hands down a 5 star recommendation. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. I am trying to find an excuse to come back. M A H A L O !!

Fantastic house for a group that loves cooking!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our visit this week! The pictures on the site don't do the house justice- in particular, we loved the large kitchen for cooking some elaborate meals together! I would advise others in winter that the downstairs doesn't warm up very well (the upstairs gets quite hot, too!) so bring layers. From the house, we could see horses, pigs, cows, and llamas. What a fun place to stay! Great area to walk/hike, and not too far from wineries and vineyards. Thanks for hosting, we would absolutely stay here again!
