Guestbook comments from the manager

This was our second stay at this marvelous country estate. Feels so much like being transported to Tuscany! We love, love, love the multiple, beautiful and enjoyable gathering places around the property. We love feeling like we are a guest, not a renter. The beauty of the furnishings and the setting combine to make this a home I want to return to again and again.

Thank you so much for sharing this special place with us!

Great place for family reunion!!

  • 5 of 5

Wow – I’m glad we did not pass up this house because of one bad review. I see that there was an issue with the renter per the response. Having had a VRBO property in the past I understand that some folks use the reviews as a way of getting even if the owner is charging the renter additional cleaning fees for a house not left in good condition. We did not have any of the issues listed. The house was very clean. It is a rental house not a place people live in when not rented.

However, we had a wonderful stay. I hope we can come back in the summer to really enjoy the outside. The pool area is beautiful, but with so much rain in January we could not make use of all the great outdoor space to relax and enjoy outside dining. We were very comfortable inside with lots of space for the kids and adults in a separate living area. The kitchen is well stocked for our chefs. The house is nicely situated to get to the plaza ( about a mile walking ) and to the wineries about 10 minute drive in any direction. It only took us 30 minutes to get to the Napa Wineries and Yountville. We did find many nice restaurants in Sonoma. Did not need to go to Napa. We especially liked the Fig Café in Glen Ellen which Sandy recommended as a nice locals place. Plus no corkage!!!

All the beds were comfortable with laundered linens, very nice touch, like a hotel room. Having a washer and dryer was perfect as we did get very wet walking to the plaza. Just when we thought it had stopped raining for a while.

Sandy was most helpful with easy check in procedures and immediate follow up. Our group would highly recommend this property to anyone wanting to enjoy the wine country feel of the Sonoma Wine Country.

A Lovely, Secluded Sonoma Property

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at the home while in Sonoma for our son's wedding. The house could not have been more perfect for our needs with great indoor space, lovely places to gather by the pool, and the many outdoor seating areas around the house. Everything was clean, comfortable and in good shape. The rental manager and the homeowner were very helpful in answering my emails ahead of the visit. When we arrived, the AC kept resetting because apparently the renters before us did not know how to work the simple thermostat and had mistakenly set multiple programs on it. The owner and manager were immediately responsive and addressed this small problem right away. I have seen the two reviews before this one and really do not understand what those people are talking about. Although I would agree that the outdoor space has too many levels to make it a good fit or small children. I wish I owned this property! It is a beautiful home in a beautiful setting. We all loved the wild turkeys that gathered at the foot of the hill each morning, the deer grazing outside the fence, and the cattle in the field next door. The house is only a short drive to everything local, and also convenient to both the Napa and Sonoma wine regions. We walked to the square one day--while not a really short walk, it was not terribly far, and it was a fun walk. I would love to stay here again and hope to do so!

Travel reunion group

  • 4 of 5

I wish I had read the review before us. But it was posted after we were there. This is a great house and property. It was good for adults, lots of room, outside grounds beautiful, inside nice, seemed clean. On the other hand many windows and screens need to be fixed. We had a mosquito and spider problems which could have been taken care of. The outside area needs some TLC. decks, railing, awnings all need good power washing. The railing going to the pool needs sanding couple of people got splinters, chairs with cushions in the pool area had spiders under them I got bit. The lighting going down front steps either isn't working correctly or the light bulbs need to be replaced. My friend didn't see the last step because the light wasn't working and she fell on her knees and elbow. We BBQ and did all our dinners, the patio off the kitchen is nice but the old wood table and chairs are falling apart and need to be replaced or burned. We have rented many places in California, USA, and Europe. This was our most expensive rental, for the price it needs repair, such a shame it's not taken better taken care of. The property, gardens, landscaping gets more care.

A nice house but not a nice place to stay (especially if you have kids)

  • 1 of 5

My husband and I got married in Sonoma and come back for an annual trip. We wanted to stay near town this time and so we chose this property.

The pros:

- close to town

- really big house, it's probably the biggest we have stayed at in Sonoma

- the pool and hot tub are well kept

- nice appliances and a lot of places to sit outdoors to eat dinner

- nice beds, sheets, blankets. Everything is very comfortable

The cons:

- we had to call the owner twice upon her request. The first time she let us know that the house had mice problems and that there would be an exterminator coming in the day after we arrived (note: I didn't see any mice but I did see some traps hidden). She cancelled the exterminator and I asked that we not have to wait around for him during our vacation. The second time Cathy voiced her concerns about having young children in the house. I understand the concern however we were already there and had stated very clearly in our initial inquiry that we would have toddlers in the home. It should not have been a surprise

- the home is a little more dated than I thought it would be per the photos. The guest cottage was rather small, a little musty smelling and wasn't as nice as the rest of the house

- owner deducted $100 from our security deposit claiming we left the home messy. We have rented many homes and have never had this feedback. We own rental properties so we make a point of respecting the rules of the home

- safety was a minor concern. There are many doors and windows on the first floor. Not all the windows lock shut (ie sliding window in front of the sink of the kitchen) so this was a little bothersome. There is a gate at the front which helps

We have stayed at some amazing properties in Sonoma and we have never written a negative review until now. My advice is if you have children, definitely do not consider this property. It's a nice place to stay if you don't mind the owner/property manager being a little overbearing. We will certainly not stay here again - there are too many nice rentals in Sonoma.

Owner's Response: We are very specific in our information for the property that this house is not suitable for small children due to the pool not being fenced in and all the stairs on the property. The renter did receive her full $500 deposit back even though the house was left in a condition that violated her contract such that we would not rent to this party again. With over five years of 5+ stars it is evident that this group was not a good fit for this property.

My 40th Bday Paradise

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful house in a great location!! Equipped with all we need and the stunning views made the week a blast. The outside pool area and fireplace were used alot along with the hot tub. The deck on the upper level was used alot for dinner, overlooking the pool and views were nice while enjoying wine during dinner. It was hard to leave, luckily it rained just the one morning of our departure. So it made it just a little easier. The deer in the backyard were neat to watch and the cows and one billy goat next door were a riot. We needed two more days there to get done all we wanted but what a great place... If I have my way we'll be back very soon :-) Erika Howard; Rochester, NY
