Beautiful Home, Great location

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful and is fully stocked with everything you need for the stay. The house fits 10 adults comfortably and has enough room for everyone to have some space. The yard and pool are like a retreat and is kept up wonderfully. It is so easy to get into town where there are grocery stores and amazing restaurants. Jen is so helpful in making recommendations for the area and is easy to get in touch with. I highly recommend!

Maximum Comfort and Fun

  • 5 of 5

Jen was extremely helpful leading up to our stay. When we arrived, it was easy to check-in and information regarding the home and surrounding area was conveniently kept in a binder for us. The home was very clean, large, and really felt like home away from home with the amenities in the home. We are already planning our next trip back!

Annual Family Summer Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We love this home! It's our annual summer getaway. We have been coming to this lovely home during the summer for the past two years with our girls (5 & 7/yo). Year round the girls ask us when we will be going back to Sonoma, they have such a fun time here they never want to leave the property. They spend all day by the pool going down the waterslide or running in the backyard and climbing the treehouse! It's also a very safe environment, the entire property is enclosed and the pool area is fenced so there is a sense of security that your kids are playing in a safe area during those times when you need to run inside for a moment. We are going back this summer and I'm so looking forward to our visit, it's always relaxing and fun for the whole family!

Good function, needs some upgrading.

  • 3 of 5

The house definitely met the functional needs of our family gathering. We stayed in the winter months so the yard was not as stunning as the pictures, not anyone's fault, just a matter of seasons. The response from the owner regarding questions and concerns during out stay rates at 5 stars! She was very responsive to our texts, which was much appreciated.

The house is very centrally located and makes it easy to get around the Sonoma area. The driveway to the house is right off a busy road so there is a bit of street noise in the yard and a bit of early morning truck noise heard from the bedrooms. There is a gas station/convenience store just next door, which can be quite handy. We liked having the gate at the driveway for both general safety and kid safety, especially because the lock on the front door of the house was broken so we had to leave the house unlocked during our entire stay.

Outside, the grass and pool area were clean and traveling with young children we really appreciated having the fence around the pool for safety! We did enjoy a few nights in the hot tub. We had to plan ahead each night as it took 3 hours to heat up. The tree house and the rear yard shown in the photos were quite disappointing. The backyard we quite a bit less cared for than the pool area, as there were kid toys spread about the yard and there seemed to be several in-progress yard projects on hold for the winter. The rope ladder to get up to the tree house platform was worn and difficult to climb. The tree house itself was covered in aged and broken toys and tree debris. This area was definitely not prepared as a 5 star rental.

The interior of the house worked well with the 3 main floor bedrooms and the open upstairs play area with the bunk beds for the kids. The beds were comfortable, the sheets and towels nice, but the white carpets in the main bedrooms were very worn and dirty. The kitchen was well stocked with all of the necessary pots, pans, dishes and appliances and some useful staples of spices etc. (nicer wine glasses would be appreciated). The kitchen has kind of an odd layout and the dining table is in the kitchen. Several of the windows looking out to the pool area from there are foggy.

We had a good stay but based on our experience, I felt as if the rental was a bit overpriced for what we got in return.

Owner's Response: To all that are considering renting our house, please note that there are several incorrect statements in this review. 1. The door lock has never been broken. It is a keyless lock and can take a bit of getting used to. I checked it right after her stay and it worked perfectly. This was a case of user error. 2. The hot tub takes 1 hour to heat up if done correctly, again user error. 3. The carpets are not worn. They do have stains on them because people do not take their shoes off and track in dirt. The carpets in the bedrooms are being removed in less than 1 week and replaced with all hardwood for this reason. We just can't keep up with the cleaning of them, they are white and do show everything. 4. Theresa writes extensively about how disappointing our tree house is and that it is not maintained as a "5 star tree house". She is unfortunately unclear on the concept of a tree house. No, we do not maintain the tree house, there is no cleaning service that will climb the rope ladders to reach it. Yes, Theresa is correct that "rope ladders were difficult to climb" - that is the point - it is for kids. Yes, It is a tree house and it is going to have "tree debris" in it at all times and anyone renting our house should not expect otherwise. Finally, yes there are toys - some broken strewn about because that is what kids play with. The caption for our picture of the back of the back yard (it is one acre) states it is a work in progress. That means not everything is manicured, it is the country, some of it is in its natural state because we like it that way. If your idea of a 5 star rental is one with a 5 start tree house please look elsewhere for your rental. Thank you.
