Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for the use of your property in Sonoma. It was a great week and we enjoyed your house very much. The property worked perfectly for our vacation and we enjoyed it a lot. If you are looking to sell the property, it would be perfect if I ever decided to retire in Sonoma.

Great Value for the Price

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for a week while touring Sanoma County. We couldn't have asked for more. It was perfect for 2 couples. We only ate breakfast there but the kitchen was fully furnished had we wanted to use it. The town of Sanoma was amazing. Great restaurants and a beautiful downtown plaza. The description and pictures portray an very accurate account of what to expect. It was very comfortable and clean. We had wonderful recommendations from the owner/manager of the property. Would definitely stay there again.

PERFECT HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first visit to the wine country and this was the perfect little place for my wife and I and another couple to stay. There are 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms so we each had privacy. The hot tub was a plus and nice to come home to relax in after a full day of site-seeing. We enjoyed morning coffee on the wonderful porch. We rented bikes just down the corner which was fun. Very convenient. The property managers were easily reached when we had questions. I would highly recommend this Cottage and plan to return on another vacation.

Owner's Response: We are so glad your first visit was a positive experience! It is fun to know you took advantage of the bike rental just down the street. When we stay at The Cottage we love sitting on the porch for coffee in the morning and wine in the afternoon. It is so relaxing! We look forward to your return!

Such a COMFY House!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at The Cottage and in Sonoma. The town was amazing, fun with lots of events happening. There were great restaurants recommended by the owner and a beautiful downtown plaza. The Cottage was awesome, fully equipped and met our needs. Even coffee in the cupboard! The description and pictures portray an very accurate account of what to expect. It was very comfortable and clean. We did hear an occasional rooster, but it was not intrusive to us at all. It's a nice mix of country and city. Kind of fun. LOL.

Our trip to Sanoma

  • 2 of 5
The cottage was ok. We did not have automatic dish detergent to run the dishes, and very little liquid detergent to wash dishes for 4 days. The drains in both bathrooms drained very slowly and the shower in the bathroom off of the laundry room had little shower gel and shampoo bottles, but they were completely empty. The bedroom in the front of the house doesn't have a dresser to put clothes in, which our traveling partners found unpleasant. I would have like to see white towels in the bathroom instead of off-white beige stained towels. We also had the rooster problem and a dog barking constantly when the owners left. We sat outside in the evening and we tried to plug the lights in, but they didn't work. We live in the mid-west and realize property in California is steep, but for the price we paid for 4 days, I was hoping for little more updated place.

Owner's Response: I am sorry you did not call to tell us what items were missing that would have made your stay easier and more convenient. We are easily reached by phone or email. I apologize for any items that were missing, like shampoos, soaps, etc. This was an oversight (and should not have occurred.). I wish you would have called and right away one of us would have brought these items to you for your convenience. As for the drains, we have had them replaced and they continue to "drop" so we will remove them entirely and put stoppers. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Cute, quaint home close to Downtown Sonoma - TERRIBLE ROOSTER NOISE ALL NIGHT LONG

  • 3 of 5
My family and I stayed at Caroline's Cottage in Sonoma this past weekend for our anniversary celebration. It's close to town, very cute. Love the outdoor space - bocce & a hot tub! Great for relaxing with a bottle of wine. We loved being able to walk to town and enjoy ourselves in all that Sonoma has to offer.

We were deeply disturbed when we were all woken up at 3 am every single night by a rooster that would crow a few times every 15 minutes until way past 9 am. This completely ruined our vacation as we went up there to relax and rest. We were promised a "quiet time" by Caroline and her property managers and were given the exact opposite. Even with earplugs in and pillows over our heads (not the way you want to spend a 'restful' vacation), we still could hear the rooster. We brought this up to the property manager and they said they had never heard of such a thing. I referred to past comments on the property and saw a Rooster comment, which Caroline acknowledged, but said it was down the street and not to worry. This was an absolutely terrible experience from the loud rooster that was DIRECTLY across the street from the home. I would like a partial refund since we purposely chose Caroline's Cottage because it promised peace and quiet. Instead, we were unable to sleep for the entire vacation weekend because of the terrible noise that occurred all night long. Do NOT stay here if you're looking for a restful nights sleep.

The beds also need serious updating! Our necks are creeky and in pain from the dust mited / flat pillows.

Owner's Response: We are glad you found the Cottage with everything you needed and enjoyment of the porches, yards, games, and hot tub. Regarding the rooster; unfortunately I have no control over what other people do with their property. A few guests have commented, but did not lose sleep by them; The neighbors' next door do not complain about them; We have stayed at our home as well and have not been bothered. I am sorry your sleep was disturbed by a neighbor's rooster. But I will look into the City ordinance.
The City is looking into whether the neighbor down the street has a permit to have a rooster (hens are allowed in Sonoma.) Also, I offer flat pillows and full pillows because guests have different preferences. My house cleaner periodically throws the pillows in the dryer, so as to keep them as sanitary as possible.

Perfect Spot!

  • 5 of 5
My daughters and I spent 3 nights at Caroline's Cottage. We enjoyed the wide, wraparound porch every morning and evening. It was my favorite part of the house! The house is located in a relatively quiet neighborhood and within walking distance to restaurants and shops. We walked to dinner every evening. One of my daughters had been traveling for a week already so she was happy to have a washer and dryer to use. We would be happy to stay here again if the opportunity arises.
