Gary and Eileen's home/apt is an awesome airbnb experience.
Upon arrival, the home is impeccably clean and comfortable.
The hosts (Gary says it is all Eileen on this on) have wonderful little touches like fresh flowers, delicious coffee (and fresh cream) and beer for those who are "wined" out. Gary stopped in to see if we had all we need and ask if we needed any recommendations for the area. They also have a table with maps, brochures for visitors new to the area.
Location is so perfect for exploring the area, and for a two bedroom apt with living room, kitchen, an outdoor space to have your coffee, this is a very well priced rental. My girlfriend and I leave our husbands at home every year for our annual Sonoma girls' getaway and usually have to share a hotel room. Having our own bedrooms and quiet space was a huge bonus. On this trip we wined, dined, shopped, hiked and spa'd and were central to everything we chose even though we explored from Healdsburg, Kenwood and Calistoga in addition to much time in Glen Ellen and Sonoma.
We will be back!
Can not think Gary and Eileen enough! The guest home was perfect in every way! Very comfortable bed and a spacious living room. We were provided with everything we needed and hen some. Thank you both for the tips on places to see and eat! We will defiantly be back in the future.
We had a wonderful expierence in Sonoma. We felt very welcomed in Gary and Eileen's guest home. This lovely home was just as described, comfortable and fully furnished with every amenity. The binder with local favorites was helpful, visiting several of these. We were not disappointed. Very close to many local attractions.
Great place to stay! Gary and Eileen's apartment was true to the description, even down to the little sweet touches. (Beer/coffee in the fridge, a table full of helpful tips and recommendations, and fresh flowers- Just to list a few!) I especially appreciated the fact that Gary stopped by to greet us when we first got in.
The place had everything we needed. Perfect location to enjoy the many breweries, wineries, and restaurants of the area. I would definitely book again.
Gary and Eileen were fantastic hosts. Upon our arrival we were greeted by Gary and a nice cold beverage. He gave us some good tips as to things to do during our short stay. Their apartment is lovely and was stocked with anything we could have needed. We would have loved to stay longer and will hopefully return in the future. Overall, great place to stay. We would highly recommend others to stay here.
Gary and Eileen's guest home was very spacious and comfortable. Gary emailed me beforehand to give me specific directions and how to get in. Everything was well cleaned for our arrival including beds and towels. Check in was easy as can be. Gary stopped by to say hi on our first day–he was very friendly and offered good advice on wineries and other local happenings. The location is just a few minutes drive to Sonoma Plaza and many great wineries are also close by. The wifi got quite slow at some points, especially at night, but it was good enough for basic browsing needs and checking email. But all in all, the place is a great value and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a comfortable place to stay in Sonoma!
Hey Eric, sorry about the wifi. We have never had that brought to our attention before. Wish you would have let us know about it while you were here and maybe something could have been done. We have not had a problem in the past and I have seen many iPads function well up there. Possible it may have been your device. Anyway hope you still had a good trip to Sonoma. Cheers, gary & eileen
Gary & Eileen were great hosts. We arrived to cold beer, orange juice and other beverages left for us in the fridge. Gary stopped by the evening of our arrival and we had a nice chat. Eileen left us a father's day card on our departure which was really nice! The apartment was spotless, contemporary and fully stocked. The A/C and ceiling fans helped keep us cool in the afternoon and all the windows permitted fresh air into our rooms at night. The apartment is centrally located to the Sonoma square and relatively close to the
vineyards we visited. We had a great stay
and we will recommend their apartment to our friends.
