Recent Sonoma County reviews

  • Retirement stay exceeds expectations

    "We just spent two lovely weeks in Bahia Retreat. Our son and his family moved to Sonoma County several years ago. When we visited them for the first time, they took us to Bodega Bay for a walk on the beach. We decided then to return one day for an extended visit. Luckily for us, we found Bahai Retreat on the VRBO website. Pictures on websites often exaggerate the size and beauty of a location: Not this one! Immediately upon entering we knew we had a treat in store. Windows from end to end opened up the entire Bodega Bay landscape to our eyes. When we first arrived in late afternoon, the mist was gathering but soon cleared to reveal the entire panorama. In addition to the seashore, daily we watched huge hares, great blue herons, quails, and even a bobcat in the brush and fields behind the house. The walk down to the beach revealed barn owls, more quail, hummingbirds, jays and many other small birds flying around. How to describe the beach? Great flocks of pelicans, seagulls, rails and other shore birds. The ancient rocks of the California coast created truly mystical scenes in the shifting clouds. The kitchen was amply supplied with almost any device one needs to cook. The bedrooms shared the panoramic windows. On our first night we watched the full moon set over Bodega Bay from the master bedroom. Our children and grandchildren reveled in the hot tub. Having just retired, we hoped our two weeks in Bahia Retreat would recalibrate our sense of reality. It truly happened and we hope to return again for another visit."

  • Great family trip to Sonoma!

    "This home away from home was a perfect place to spend 5 days of winter break with our two teens! The house was lovely, inside and out, peaceful and very comfortable for all. It is perfectly located, close to Sonoma with easy access to wineries and excellent restaurants and also central for day trips in Sonoma, Napa and Mill Valley. Lots for everyone to do! We also thank Ellen for her gracious hospitality. We'd love to return and stay again. We highly recommend this house for trips with family or friends!!"

  • Comfortable, relaxing home

    "My family and I spent a relaxing 10 days enjoying the property. The 13 of us swam, played ping pong & basketball, ate s'mores and grilled when we weren't enjoying the surrounding area of Glen Ellen and Sonoma. Safari West and Train Town were definitely popular with the group as were the local wineries and restaurants. The property was as described and the owner was immediately on site to help when we had a bit of an issue with the cable. Should we return to Sonoma we will definitely try to book the same property."

  • Comfort and Style

    "Having stayed at Chez Winnie five times, one could not ask for more! Gracious and attentive owners, prime location, and a well appointed home in the heart of wine country. As soon as one walks through the front door it speaks of home. Warm and comfortable with everything you could wish for. Gardens with an abundance of roses, herbs, and the scent of wisteria. Sipping wine under the pergola or coffee on the front porch becomes a way of life. Sonoma life at its best!"
