About Jennifer Richardson

My husband and I are artists (painting and photography). You will see our artwork throughout the home. My family and I love to travel and will use the home as a home base, but when we are off and about rent the home. At this time we keep the studio for our things and at times may stay there.

Jennifer Richardson purchased this house in 2004

Why Jennifer Richardson chose Sonoma County

The property is in a great location and we were able to remodel it as we liked. We love the quint, quiet neighborhood and then within minutes you are downtown, hiking, golfing or hanging out at the river.

What makes this house unique

Amazing sunset views off the deck, seating for a dozen around the fire pit. Large great room that makes for a great gatherings of friends and family.

Great location and well equipped for entertaining!

  • 5 of 5

The house was in great shape and acimmodated 4 adults and 3 children comfortably. The master suite was amazing and the large patio and firepit were a huge hit with the children as well as the spacious backyard with swing and trampoline and various toys. The kitchen was well equipped for family dinners and banquet style dining room table made for an excellent buffet when we entertained family members for lunch and dinners! The kids especially enjoyed the beautiful flowers growing in the front yard and the awesome bunk bed room and were entertained building forts inside the desk area. The owners were very accommodating and pleasant in all dealings and really made us all feel like great friends just staying at their house. The location was perfect, a short 10min walk to historic downtown Petaluma and very close to main streets to get us to other parts of town or out to the freeway! Overall an excellent choice for anyone needing a place to stay in Petaluma! Would definitely recommend and revisit!!!

Good location in Petaluma but poor furnishings and cluttered

  • 2 of 5

Renting a house is definitely a great way to go for families as you can keep everyone in the same place and share meals. Unfortunately this one was a bit awkward as the owners of the house moved out and lived in their studio below while we were there. The walls were paper thin and we could hear most of their conversations and I know they could hear us. The owner left all their personal stuff in the house which made us very uncomfortable. Either the owner needs to remove their personal stuff or post photos that truly represent what you are renting. I think they need to update their website as well to correct inventory. The shared bath off the living room does not have a shower so it should be advertised as such. It has a bathtub but with all adults in the house, it was tough sharing the one shower on the main level. When we first reviewed their property, it said it slept 9 (up to 12 if you included the rental of the studio downstairs) but it only slept 7. They have since corrected that.

Owner's Response: I’m sorry you were unhappy with your stay. Most of our guests are thrilled to have a home fully stocked with baking and cooking supplies. I’m sorry about not being clear on the 3rd bathroom and it being a tub, will update the VRBO to make this clearer. When we began our communication, I told you that the studio was unavailable for rent and that we would be staying there. I explained that late night parties were not appreciated since the studio is under the home. You requested if you could have a small catered family get together for an end of life celebration for a family member. We said, of course and reiterated that a late night party wasn’t something we were looking for on property. You assured us no problem – this was a family afternoon gathering. It is unfortunate to read your complaint in your review, when we were so cool to you and your group that weekend. We didn’t complain as your small party turned into a large party. We didn’t complain about seeing you guys playing ping pong on the dining table. And didn’t complain as you partied on until 4am. Our neighbors complained to us, but we remained cool to you. I’m sorry our home didn’t meet your needs for your stay.

great place for family

  • 4 of 5

The stay was pleasant, just like at home. However, if we knew ahead of time that shampoo and conditioner were not provided, we would bring our own instead of using the shower gel. We are fine to use the rag instead of paper towels.

Nice property in Petaluma

  • 5 of 5

The home worked fine for my wife and four older children and grandson. The property was described well in the listing and all amenities were fine. The owner was great to work with, very responsive to questions. I appreciated the owner learning VRBO's invoicing system, as I prefer electronic transactions. We had a very comfortable stay, just like being at home. Petaluma is centrally located in the Bay Area with great access to the City, Coast and vineyards. We would definitely stay at this home again should all the stars align for another visit to the Bay Area sometime.
