Recent San Francisco Bay Area reviews

  • Wonderful weekend getaway

    "Dill N' Thyme is a wonderful sanctuary for an ocean sojourn. We enjoyed my husband's birthday weekend and our daughter came from San Francisco to surprise him. Our Aussie Shepherd, Ella, adjusted to all the wonderful new aromas and delighted in beach romps. It was lovely to meet Joy and share a few moments together. The kitchen is very well appointed and we were grateful for the barbecue. We loved sitting on the deck and taking in the water views. Very peaceful."

  • Perfect house and location

    "The cottage was perfect for our birthday trip to the Napa valley. Our party consisted of two adult couples, the cottage provided plenty of private/personal space with two great bedrooms and two full baths. The common areas were great as well. It was clean and well maintained. The location was perfect for us, walking distance to downtown Napa and quick, easy access to Hwy 29 for our trips to Oakville, Yountville and St. Helena."

  • As advertised, and much more!

    "It's more difficult to find a really nice place to stay 3 nights in Russian River than I'd have thought, but we hit the jackpot when we found and booked Vista Serena for a recent family mini-reunion. With 3 grown kids/spouses and a 3yr old grand-daughter, our party of 6-1/2 had plenty of space and comfortable convenience to last the weekend, and all would've loved to stay longer! With 3+ bedrooms and 2 full baths, everyone had privacy and comfort to spare. Clare has equipped her home better than expected, thinking of almost everything one would need to cook and stay entertained, and has maintained it all in perfect order. We didn't turn on any of the tv's except for one late-night movie, but definitely enjoyed the lovely spa and thoughtfully shaded deck - and the dog and 3yr old loved the fenced yard! We know the area very well so felt the location would suit our needs perfectly - but if you're new to Russian River, this would be the perfect home base from which to explore Guerneville itself (MUST go to Johnson's Beach), and everything from Forestville to Healdsburg, or Armstrong Woods out to Bodega Bay and Jenner - taking the time to stop at every little winery or perfect beach spot in between! Despite its proximity to town (and the lovely historic PeeWee Golf), it was extremely quiet and peaceful. Clare (who is especially easy and pleasant to communicate with) and Elizabeth, her local caretaker, provided not only great instructions for the house, but lots of tips and recommendations for visitors. We're already beginning to think about a bit longer stay next year! I should add that Guerneville has become quite the location for great food - highly recommend Boon Eat & Drink on Main, the restaurant at Russian River Vineyards in Forestville (fka Corks), and Nimble & Finn's, the fabulous little ice cream place in the old Guerneville Bank! We found everyone at these spots incredibly pleasant, especially accommodating to small children, and serving exceptionally delicious food! And with one of our favorite wineries, Rochioli, only a short, scenic drive away, we could not have asked for anything more! *One very minor note about the infrared bbq on the deck….if you’ve never used one before (like us), you may find it a bit of a challenge to get something like a pricey beef tenderloin done the way you want. We persevered and it was fine – just meant dinner was a lot later than planned!"
