About Carlos J. Barreda & Jenna A. Kennedy

(picture of Manager, Carlos B. not of owner) Recently retired, we (Peter and Kathleen Dawson) came to Sonoma so we could be close to family, especially our two grandchildren. We wish to be involved with their lives and activities while they grow up. We have many family and friends in the Bay Area. We are respectively a retired music teacher and school psychologist. We live an active lifestyle including running, biking, and Zumba.

Carlos J. Barreda & Jenna A. Kennedy purchased this house in 2011

Why Carlos J. Barreda & Jenna A. Kennedy chose Sonoma County

We (Peter and Kathleen Dawson) chose to buy a home in Sonoma because of its location, beauty and closeness to family and friends. We did not initially consider renting it while we returned to rural New York State during the summer months where the rest of our family and friends are (and our original home). Then we started thinking that maybe we should share such a nice place with others while we are not here. Then local friends who are experienced Innkeepers and currently run WineINN and DineINN Taxi/Transportation/Concierge approached us and offered to manage the home as a vacation rental while we are gone. Knowing our guests would be in good hands prompted us to offer our home for the 6 months when we are not here.

What makes this house unique

What a convenient location. 45 minute drive to San Francisco, 15 minute drive to famous Sears Point formerly (Infineon), now Sonoma Raceway (NASCAR, NHRA, AMA etc.). Within a 5 minute walk from our house, there are grocery stores, drug stores, coffee shops, at least 15 restaurants, a movie theater, various stores, a large regional park, a smaller park, 2 minutes from the bike/running/walking path that goes to the Sonoma Square (a 15 minute walk) with some of the best restaurants anywhere, with multiple wineries and wine tasting. Take a leisurely drive up and down Sonoma Valley and visit maybe a 100 wineries in the region (Napa Valley is 20 minutes away).

Excellent home and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Carlos was a great help and so friendly - we couldn't have asked for better service. The home was clean and exactly like the pictures. The kitchen was well stocked and offered a great place to make a meal at the end of a busy day. The home is in a great location in Sonoma and very easy to get the winery's!

Would stay at this great home again when we return to the area.

Excellent Home Base for wine country vacation

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated with family (four couples) while touring wineries in the Russian River Valley and upper Napa Valley, using Casa Verano as home base. We used the crock pot one day to have a meal ready prepared when we got 'home'. We are first time VRBO customers and Casa Verano was very relaxing, romantic, and immaculately clean, just like the photos. Well managed and our security deposit was returned promptly.

Casa Verano

  • 5 of 5

Our family met for a lunch at the French Laundry and needed a place for the weekend. The location was good for us; we parked the car and then walked to dinners, grocery store and the town square. We used the bikes to tour the local wineries. The house was well stocked and spacious. Carlos and Jenna were always just a text away for restaurant suggestions and help. We could not have been happier.

5 Star Service

  • 5 of 5

The property manager, Carlos, was more than accommodating. He goes out of his way to ensure comfort and satisfaction. The house is ideally located about 1.4 miles from town square. If you don't want to walk, the bike path is steps away from the house (nice bikes provided). We also had a great experience as first-time Uber users. i gave the house 5 stars - not as in a hotel rating for price and luxury - but for its excellent yet affordable accommodations. It was extremely clean, great location, quiet neighborhood, spacious, and well stocked .... perfect for our needs. We were beyond pleased and would definitely stay there again if in the area.

Perfect House for a getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house was everything in the description and so much more. The backyard was a perfect place to relax when it got a bit too hot out and the location was absolutely perfect. We were only a mile bike ride from Sonoma Plaza and all the best wine tastings / restaurants. The house was also perfectly clean and well kept with extensive instructions on where everything was located. I would definitely recomned this house to any small group looking for a great time!
