We are A multi generational family from teen to senior. Everyone slept so well in the California air. The hot tub and yard are fabulous! We enjoyed the property so much. Everything was exactly as described. Thanks John for a great stay!

Nice Neighborhood Home

  • 4 of 5

I most likely would have given this a full 5 stars but the hidden spa fees upset me. We rented this home with a group of 5 of us, we really wanted a home with a pool or a spa and we were willing to pay a little extra for it. We ventured out of our desired area and frankly, very much out of our price range for this home. We found out after the fact that in order to use the advertised spa we would have to pay an addition charge and put an extra deposit down. When I searched for this fee I found that if you booked the home on a computer this fee was outlined, but when booked through the app on your phone (which I did), the extra fee notice was hidden under a hidden arrow you would only find if you scrolled your finger over that specific point. We were very disappointed. The home itself was very nice a clean and the yard was beautiful. John Larson was also very kind and easy to work with.

A fun, relaxing venue for a 10-person reunion!

  • 5 of 5

The house was spacious and pretty well stocked in the kitchen for the 10 of us. We also used the spa and had a blast outside just hanging out and relaxing. The house was a great location to explore wineries and tasting rooms in downtown petaluma, up north, and over in Sonoma. We highly recommend!

Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Wine Country Wonders for a wedding at Sonoma Gardens in Sonoma with 9 adults and we all had a fantastic time. The house had plenty of space for all of us and all of the bedrooms were comfortable. It is only a 15 minute ($17 Uber ride) to Sonoma, which was a great convenience. The best part was sitting outside on the patio underneath the redwoods relaxing.

Wine Country Wonders...

  • 4 of 5

Very Comfortable House to stay in. This house worked great for our family on our recent trip. Plenty of room for us to spread out a bit. Enjoyed sitting in the well maintained back yard and relaxing with our group. Owners were very helpful with any questions we had during our stay.

Big, clean home in an awesome neighborhood!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time during our Wine Country Wonders stay. The house was exactly what was listed, with plenty of space for a group of 10-12 adults. It came with everything we needed to cook all of our meals for 3 full days. There was even breakfast food in the pantry that we could use! When we needed something from the host, he was extremely helpful. Overall, we loved staying here.

My only piece of feedback for the host is that we found some of the signs around the house to be a bit off putting. We saw many signs saying "if you break x, you'll be charged" or "if you do y, you'll be charged." The house could use more helpful signage (for example, where should we put our garbage when we're done?), and fewer signs threatening charges. That said: Despite worrying about this, we didn't get charged for anything!
