  • Beautiful, Well-Appointed, Peaceful Retreat

    "I would definitely recommend this rental. The home was clean and well maintained, and the description of the property is accurate. The house is not very large, about 1100 square feet, but it was more than adequate for our family of 4. The kitchen was my favorite part of the house, as it has everything you might need for cooking meals. The only thing I might recommend in the house is larger fitted sheets for the beds, since they did not fit the mattresses and came off every night. There are plenty of towels, cleaning supplies, and household items. Our 2 young children loved the hot tub and the swing under the gorgeous oak tree outside. We brought our two dogs, so the front fenced area was nice to have. The surrounding nature is peaceful and calming. We saw deer everyday, as well as wild turkeys that came to the yard. The location was ideal for us, since we wanted to feel somewhat secluded but wanted easy access to Santa Cruz. We visited Roaring Camp Railroads, Henry Cowell State Park, and Highlands Park as well as the Santa Cruz Boardwalk, Natural Bridges State Park and Ano Nuevo. Keep in mind that the Trout Valley Inn burned down in June of 2016. My major complaint about this rental was that there was no written or printed guide at the house. The information about the rental is sent in the Home Away app, which was not accessible with my phone. That meant I had to plug in my computer to view the house rules, etc. If I did not have my computer with me, I wouldn't have been able to access the information once I got to the rental. Also, I really wanted to "unplug" so having to access information via technology was sort of a bummer. There is a binder at the house with manufacturer's manuals for the appliances, but I did not want to read manuals I wanted a concise summary of how to use the TV, air conditioner, hot tub, etc. which I did not have. I definitely recommend to the owners that they put together a written summary of how to use the appliances in the house, as well as the rules for checking out, etc. Being able to flip though a well written guide is much more relaxing than staring at a computer. That said, Lolly was extremely responsive and supportive when I had questions. Overall, a great rental in a beautiful area and ideal location."

  • Beautiful, quiet home away from home

    "Our family (4 adults and 2 children) stayed for five nights in this absolutely beautiful home in Berkeley. I knew that the accommodations were adequate for our crowd, but had no idea that this home was so lovely. We were out doing things during most of our stay so didn't take much advantage of the patio, and gardens, but certainly enjoyed the scenery. The kitchen seemed very adequately stocked with equipment, but we did not cook. With two children, we did appreciate the washer and dryer however. There were places to eat within walking distance. We had a car available, altho we also took BART into San Francisco. In sum, we were very pleased by this rental, would gladly stay there again, and would certainly recommend it to others."

  • Excellent weekend getaway!

    "We stayed at the Beautiful Sonoma Creek Cottage this past weekend to attend a wedding close by. We were very happy to see the pictures were accurate, it looks even more Beautiful in person. It was so relaxing and very private! We also enjoyed a delicious dinner at Glen Ellen Inn. The wifi worked great, however, we couldn't get cell service in the house. We would definitely recommend this house to our friends and family! Thank you Breana at Sonoma Valley Escapes!"
