                                                          Beautiful, comfortable house, beautiful location

                                                          Tara G.

                                                          My group of 8 loved staying here! The house was spacious and comfortable and was the perfect place to relax after visiting local wineries. The yard and garden are beautiful, and we enjoyed the sweet neighborhood cat who stopped by to visit whenever we were outside. There are a lot of house rules, but they are all reasonable and the care that the owner puts into maintaining the house shows through. I hope to stay here again in the future.

                                                          Great House and Location

                                                          Britt h.

                                                          Wonderful stay. House is well stocked, great linens and furniture. Nearby all the great places to dine and wine taste in Sonoma County. We will be back. Love the manager as well. I highly recommend this rental. I own a event planning company and will refer this property to any clients looking for great accommodations.

                                                          Great retreat near downtown Healdsburg and many wineries

                                                          Rachel W.

                                                          Lovely property with great pool and good location. This is a great place for groups. Close proximity to downtown Healdsburg, many wineries, but still feels very private. We enjoyed our stay and hope to return!

                                                          Thanks so much Rachel for your review. We loved sharing our home with you and hope you return!

                                                          Ants ants and more ants

                                                          Samantha G.

                                                          While the house itself is beautiful and the property is exactly as described, our weekend was overrun with ants in the house. When we first got to the house we noticed a few ant traps around, so we assumed they had ants at some point, though we were never informed. When we were putting our groceries away we saw ants in the pantry and even on the bowls in the cupboards. One of the guests has a severe food allergy and all of her food along with a good majority of the others became infested and had to be thrown out. I texted the owners about this, and they seemed to be aware of the ant problem but never disclosed this through ANY of our conversations.

                                                          Owner's Response:

                                                          Thank you for your review Samantha. I did indeed speak with you and told you we were having some ants entering the home in search of water because it has been an unseasonable hot summer with many stretches over 100 degrees. It should be pointed out that when you leave a home you have rented and have ground food into the carpets and left garbage cans inside the house overflowing with food and refuse ants will multiply. Basic tidying up after oneself and not leaving food strewn about on the floor and counters would have helped, as well as if you had followed any of the check out procedures. We have never seen our home as dirty and misused as this renter left it.

                                                          Tranquil, beautiful property for a relaxing weekend away

                                                          Patrick M.New York, NY

                                                          A few friends and I wanted a weekend outside of the city somewhere with a great pool, lots of space, and where we could cook up a storm. Sarah's home offers of those things and then some! The home is nicely situated on a hill above Windsor and neighboring homes are far away - all we could hear were the birds. The house itself is super spacious. Open floor plan that was great for entertaining and well sized bedrooms. Between days spent poolside and evenings grilling, I wouldn't hesitate to return in a second.

                                                          Heaven.

                                                          The property is absolutely breathtaking. We were up there for a wedding and didn't want to leave! The pool and attached spa are perfect for adults and kids (even though we were all adults), and the lawn is great for tossing a football or throwing the frisbee. The owner was very responsive and welcoming and made our stay more enjoyable. My friends are already bugging about when we get to go back! Highly, highly recommend.
