Beautiful Home, Gracious Owner

  • 5 of 5
We dropped the ball on finding a place to stay and were desperately looking for a location in Petaluma. We contacted John two weeks prior to our stay and were amazed to discover that he was willing to rent us the property even though the previous guests were checking out the same day!
The home is incredibly comfortable, well-furnished, and spacious. My favorite amenity was the backyard; I really loved the trees and felt that this shielded the house well from the neighbors making it feel very private. We played music, but I was constantly amazed that you could barely hear anything from outside the house. The neighborhood is calm and beautiful and the location provides easy access to downtown Petaluma (only a 15 minute drive to Lagunitas Brewery, which I highly recommend), but was removed enough that we felt we weren't in the middle of town.
John was an extremely gracious host and made all the house rules and features very clear. Overall, the booking and stay was a fantastic experience and we couldn't have dreamed of getting such a great rental on such short notice.

Nice backyard but the tub was not very hot

  • 3 of 5
My friends and I were attending a wedding in Petaluma and were happy to find a house large enough to accommodate all 8 of us. The house was clean. John left a nice bottle of wine for us. The yard had a few redwood trees and was both lovely and relaxing. We had a BBQ and enjoyed it fully.
John accommodated our request to check in at 2pm instead of 3pm... which was extremely helpful as the wedding was starting at 4:30.
The main blip on our stay here was the hot tub. It never got that hot. I believe it is on a timer but were never given the times. We somehow left the jets on... probably hoping it was connected to the heater. Unfortunately, we were requested to pay more for the power... without ever having fully enjoyed a hot soak. If the hot tub is a big draw for you... I would have a clear conversation with John ahead of time about expectations, times, temperature and costs.
We had a lovely stay but it felt a bit expensive with only a warm hot tub... since that was one of the most enticing amenities for our crew.

Owner's Response: I had just changed the water in the Spa for you. It's set at 102. You had called me 4 or 5 times so if you had a issue a phone call would have been nice. It looked like someone got impatience waiting for the Spa to heat up and played with all the adjustments under the bench and turned the heater down and left it running all weekend.

Cozy Petaluma Home - great for groups and weekend getaways

  • 5 of 5
A group of 8 went up to Petaluma for a friend's wedding and had a blast staying here!

GREAT location - couple minutes from Petaluma - very convenient to be so close to town but also only 15 minutes from the vineyard that hosted the wedding making it an ideal place to stay

GREAT host - John was very responsive with any questions we had - very approachable and flexible in accommodating our needs - felt very welcomed and taken care of during our stay

GREAT house - the kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed including a bottle of wine and tray of desserts upon arrival :) - large tv and great entertainment system for lounging - every room had its own style and decor providing character + an amazing outside patio w/ hot tub out back

GREAT overall - we enjoyed the entire weekend with friends, wine, a wedding, and lodging - couldn't have asked for a better time or place! Will definitely be back to stay here for the next Napa wedding or weekend outside the city!

A walk down memory lane!

  • 5 of 5
We raised our children in Petaluma and finally had a chance to take our grandchildren "back home" to visit where their parents grew up. Our VRBO home was clean, comfortable, convenient, and just a couple of blocks from "home". We were very pleased with the attention we received from the owner, his friendliness and responsiveness made the engagement more understandable and eliminated any questions and concerns. We particularly loved the back patio area under the redwood trees and the hot tub where we enjoyed some wine.

The Truly Wine Country Wonders

  • 5 of 5
We've got 8 people looking for an escape in the long weekend and Wine Country Wonders is truly the perfect spot for a party like this. John is such an excellent host. He contacted me several times prior our trip to confirm the details and gave me the necessary contact number for any question I may have.

On the check-in date, he called me again to inform that everything is ready for our coming. He also put some fruit and a bottle of wine to welcome us. It's truly a pleasure to have John as our host.

The location of the house is wonderful. It's close to the wineries in Napa and Sonoma. The neighborhood was quiet and beautiful. It's even within 5 minutes' drive to all the shops. Drive a bit further, you can even enjoy hiking in the state parks.

The house itself is well maintained. You can clearly see the effort that John have put into. I can assure you that the rooms are better than the photos. John is an artist. You can see different styles of decoration in each bedroom. The living room is cozy and comfortable. The 72-in TV is perfect for home entertainment. Plus, there is a SPA in the backyard that one can relax while having a glass of wine. In short, the house has everything you can think of for a holiday.

John also put a lot of good stuff in the kitchen. You can expect a full kitchen which can easily hold a cocktail party. Breakfast cereals are also available and there were plenty of blankets and pillows in case you have extra people.

All of us had a great time here and I highly recommend this house for any occasion.
