About Leslie Tomich

I love dogs, I love vacationing! Day to day I am a full time Realtor in Sonoma County which is very fulfilling. I purchased the cottage in 2011 as a get away for my family. Then I used VRBO to book a condo when I went to Hawaii in 2013. I saved a lot of money being able to cook for my family and thought hey-why don't I let other people enjoy my cottage when my family isn't using it!

Why Leslie Tomich chose Forestville

Perfect for Two

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I were looking for something that was in close proximity to both Safari West and the Windsor Golf Club when I found this place. We picked it because it had a full kitchen and an air conditioner. It was perfect for us because we brought food to cook dinner and breakfast for two nights and the kitchen had everything we needed. The bed was very comfy and we both slept well on it. Overall, it was perfect for us and we would definitely stay again if we are in the area!

Cute little house in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Leslie's house. It's a cute little house with a great front porch and very secure nice yard for our dog. The front porch is also fenced in, so we enjoyed sitting on the porch with our pup enjoying the nice weather. The house is very nearby a nice park area, and also not far from downtown Forestville, which had quite a few restaurants. We went to the Backyard and it was delicious!

Cozy & comfy for relaxing weekend away

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a local wedding and it was perfect. Very clean, cozy little place. Very comfy bed & well-appointed kitchen. The little market up the street had great fresh produce for cooking. The highway noise was a bit noticeable at night but it was chilly and sound carries in the cold--don't let that distract you from staying at this place!

Excellent stay - Leslie is wonderful, cottage could not have been better, area is fantastic

  • 5 of 5

I had the best stay in this cottage and honestly, did not want to leave. I spent 3 months here for a summer internship in Cotati. The cottage is exactly as depicted in the pictures. Has everything you need and did me just fine for the whole summer. Air conditioning works great, cools the whole place down. Wooden floor is wonderful, plenty of space in the kitchen, all utensils and appliances, bed, chairs, tables, etc. Everything you need. There is no laundry but there is a laundromat in town about a mile away. I actually enjoyed going to the laundromat and got to know some of the locals. Would load up laundry and walk to the Tiny Town Cafe for breakfast. Was a great ritual. I had two dogs with me and they did just fine in the cottage. The backyard is small but big enough for them to do their business and walk around or lay in the sun. Fence is tall and secure, never had a concern. Front porch is fenced in as well and many days myself and my dogs would sit out there in the sun while I read a book and I knew they could not escape due to the fence around the front porch. You are close to so much stuff here. Sonoma Coast State Parks are 30 minutes west with breathtaking views of the ocean. Armstrong Woods is 15 minutes away with beautiful redwoods. Santa Rosa is about 10 minutes away, just down River Road to the highway. San Francisco is about an hour away. Leslie was a fantastic landlord. Checked in occasionally to make sure I was ok but generally left me alone.

Cannot recommend this cottage and Leslie enough. Would give more stars if I could. You will not be disappointed.
