About Wendy Paskin-Jordan

This is our Sonoma retreat that resembles the hills of Tuscany. We make wine here, we have a house in San Francisco , I went to school at Stanford, Wharton, and Uni of Calif,. My husband went to USF. We are both athletes, and we have access to 2 private golf clubs in the area. My husband worked at the largest environmental foundation in the world for 10 years, and I worked for an investment bank. Our San Francisco home has been on the cover of designer magazines, and this guest chalet has designer furniture, antiques, etc.

We just returned from Egypt, and we're leaving soon for Asia. We love to guide our guests to wonderful non-tourist sites.

Outstanding in every category - stunning place to stay in Sonoma!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I (from Boston) stayed here for 4 nights in October and can't say enough about this beautiful property... It's a quiet, private, quaint, clean, gorgeous guest house on what has to be one of the nicest views in Windsor. The property is a mile up a hillside road (you get used to the drive up the hill very quickly once you're there) and is everything it's advertised to be. Breathtaking views from the bedroom and living room, quiete private deck off both rooms to enjoy coffee in the morning or wine at night! Modern, very clean kitchen with everything you need and beautiful bathroom with huge stone shower (and great water pressure!). Cannot say enough of how much we enjoyed this property...

The location is ideal - on the hills between Sonoma and Napa Valley, just outside of Santa Rosa. Easy drive to Healdsburgh, Sonoma, Russian River and Napa Valley. Found some great local coffee shops and restaurants (loved Willi's Wine Bar).

Wendy was great to deal with from the beginning of the reservation to communicating via txt while we there - she and Frank have a beautiful piece of property and gorgeous guest house - we highly recommend and hopefully get a chance to stay here again soon!

My wife and I loved staying with Wendy and Frank. They are great hosts with a very beautiful property. Our stay was clean and quite and a welcome 'unplug' from our usual San Diego lives. Thank you, Wendy and Frank!

Perfect weekend get a way!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This guesthouse is in the perfect location for visiting both Sonoma and Napa. This home had a great view. It had a very nice kitchen and it was in a very secluded area. We will definitely return for another visit here. Can't comment on any restaurants as we didn't eat out as we enjoy the quiet time on the balcony of this home. It is a very romantic spot with a wonderful view! The owner of the home, Wendy was always available for any questions we had. I would recommend this property for a couples reconnect or just a quiet weekend away. We visited many great wineries in both Sonoma and Napa! We love it here

The Perfect Mountain Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

This vacation hideaway is perfect if you're seeking beauty, seclusion, privacy, and comforting quiet! We were and found it at this comfortable, cozy guest home high above Santa Rosa. Yes, the road is steep and winds a bit, but the view and surrounding forest are so worth it! We stayed for 6 wonderful nights, enjoyed the magnificent wines of the Alexander and Sonoma valleys, slept so soundly, and need no coaxing to plan a return trip.

Exceeded expectations.

  • 5 of 5

This property was amazing. It is perched near the top of a Sonoma mountain overlooking a nature reserve. The view reminded me of Van Gogh's countryside works. The indoor space was beautifully decorated, clean and very comfortable. We had a great stay. Wineries in both Sonoma and Napa were near buy and Safari West was right below. I would recommend this property to family or friends. Thanks Frank and Wendy for everything.

Great place, beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

Wendy was an absolutely great host. They were not in town when we rented their guest house, but she communicated frequently and was responsive to anything we needed. The guest house itself was very pleasant: clean, well appointed, and with great amenities. Especially appreciated the towels etc. Hands down the best part was how secluded and private this place felt on top of a big hill overlooking the valley. Having dinner on the porch felt like a private winery. We'd come back anytime we could.
