It was a great stay that was quiet and secluded

  • 5 of 5

We were greeted by the owner who was gracious and helpful after our long flight from the East Coast. The apartment was exactly as described, and was well equipped for our stay. We told him we were expecting our son to join us, and they provided plenty of parking in the gated courtyard. In addition, the apartment was separate and to the back of the property which made it quiet for us to relax and enjoy the beautiful California weather. The owners provided a wonderful assortment of beverages, snacks, and kitchen condiments/staples which we had not experienced before at a VRBO. The location is relatively close to the downtown action which we both walked and drove to. We were also centrally located to all of the attractions we wanted to visit which was another plus. We would definitely recommend this to others, and learned some things that we will be implementing on our future VRBO in Annapolis! Thank you so much.

Peaceful!

We really enjoyed our stay at the cottage. Loved how quiet it was, patio area was enjoyable to sit with friends. Very close to the town square and close to Sonoma highway to go wine tasting! We would come back. Thanks for having us Bennett and Sheila.

Wonderful hospitality

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is a lovely, well-amenitied place in a great neighborhood within walking distance or a quick drive from Sonoma square. The cottage shares a driveaway with the main property, but because it's gated & recessed from the road it has an amazingly private feel. Bennett is a great host, very willing to leave you alone but also help you out or show his friendly face when needed. Great response time pre- & during-trip, highly recommend the cottage & the hosts that come along with it!

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay!

Clean, well stocked. The listing was very accurate.. It was just wonderful..

We enjoyed the solitude of the cottage, (woke up the first morning. looked out the bedroom window and right there a deer was eating. So close we could have touched it) the proximity to the square and just everything about it. We would definitely stay here again when in town.

Thank you Sheila and Bennett for your generous hospitality!!

Amazing stay! Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible stay at the cottage. The owners had the place well stocked and were super accommodating, hospitable, and responsive. It's true that the main house is right in front of the cottage, but we felt total privacy during our stay. Do yourself a favor and take the convertible out for a spin! We tooled around in it all weekend and it was such a treat. So generous of the hosts to offer it to their guests. Thanks to Bennett and his wife for making our wine country trip even better than expected!

Awesome quiet place to stay in Sonoma

  • 5 of 5

Very happy with the place and the owners are exceptional. If your looking for a nice quiet get away this is the place to stay. We were visiting for our anniversary and we couldn't ask for a more appropriate place to stay. Nice and up to date just a couple of cabinets that aren't perfect but we didn't spend much time in the kitchen . The patio area needed just a little bit of cleaning because of the fall leaves but no big deal for us. Pet friendly which was a plus for us.
