The Owner purchased this house in 2011
Love the atmosphere and weather.
Privacy, space. Can walk out to vineyards and stroll over to a large pond and watch the egrets and other birds. Swim all day without having to share the pool with a mass of people. Great for small groups getting together to relax and reconnect and for families with children. We have made it really kid friendly.
The houses, property and pool are all excellent. What made our stay even better was the professionalism of the owner. When we first arrived there was a minor hicup that we had to deal with. Once I told the owner about the problem she immediately resolved the situation and made sure the rest of our stay was enjoyable.
Great property - the grounds are beautiful, the home very clean and the studio very well kept, as well. The owner is very responsive and a genuinely nice person. We have now stayed here twice and loved every moment. Quick 5-10 min drive to most Sonoma wineries and a few great options within a mile from the house. Only issue was a non-working remote! Great experience all around. It's a house with a lovely vineyard view, with a pool and a grill perfect fora small group of family or friends.
Must visits: Cornerstone and Obsidian Winery on premise there. The gardens are beautiful too.
The property was lovely with a beautiful yard, pristine pool, and lots of lounging space. The house and guest studio were both cozy and clean. Most of all, the owners were kind, organized, and helpful. I'd highly recommend this as a getaway spot!
Stayed during winter holiday 2015. House needed thorough cleaning including sweeping under furniture/couches. Kitchen was dingy. Vents and air filters were extremely dirty. Lawn was unkempt and over grown. Only 2 burners were functioning during our stay. Disappointed especially for the price and it being our first time visiting wine country. Didn't leaving a good lasting impression of the area with these accommodations.
We rented this property as one of two houses for our wedding weekend. We were very excited about the place based on the photos and other reviews. However, once we arrived we felt fairly disappointed by the condition of the property, home and studio. It looked like perhaps the place had been cleaned prior to arrival, but weeks before we got there.
The trash cans were in the driveway. The grass was completely overgrown everywhere. The outdoor furniture was placed in random areas, with no real thought or curation. The studio had dirty sheets on that never seemed to have been cleaned from the last renters. And although the owner thought it was the hair from the cleaners that had made it in, there was way too much of it all over the sheets and comforter for us to agree. There was also actual dirt/pebbles in the sheets. The studio does not have any closets or anywhere to hang clothes. Not even a hook. Which was tricky if we wanted to keep things from wrinkling. The main house smelled very strongly of something moist and unpleasant. And the level of cleaning there was also cursory at best. The hot tub never ever actually heated up to a comfortable temperature, let alone hot tub temperatures.
We ended up leaving early and staying at the second house for the rest of our reservation given how disappointing it was. The pluses are that the house is STOCKED for kids. It really had everything you could need from cups to sleeping to toys. Which was fabulous for our friends and their child. Also the owner was responsive, getting a plumber out to the house quickly when a toilet backed up. But definitely would not recommend the place, especially since there are so many other better kept rentals in the area. If there was more attention paid to details and cleanliness I would recommend it, as the location is great and the property definitely interesting.
We just celebrated the New Years Holiday in Sonoma! This was the perfect place for two families! It had everything we needed to keep both the adults and kids happy! The extra secure gate at the front of the property put us at ease as our kiddos enjoyed running around the property playing and swinging! I can only imagine how great this place is during the summer months with the awesome pool! John & Liv are great property owners, very responsive! We look forward to our next stay!!
