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.
We had a wonderful time at Gary and Eileen's beautiful apartment. It was clean, cosy and perfect for our short stay in Sonoma. There were beautiful fresh flowers in the rooms and cool beers in the fridge to welcome us. Gary was very friendly - it was nice to meet him. Sonoma was a 25 minute walk away. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place!
What a little gem! Gary and Eileen's place is spacious, clean, and in a great location for getting around Sonoma. We really enjoyed the downtown farmer's market on Tuesday evening. Eileen stopped by to make sure we had cream for our coffee and offered some great recommendations. Super hosts!
Absolutely amazing. Could not have gone any smoother with the check in. The place was immaculate and comfy. Gary and Eileen are the best hosts and are very kind and sweet. I asked about a million questions before booking and even after booking, and they were always prompt with their replies and very patient with me. Excellent customer service! Will be back... Hopefully soon! Definitely would recommend to all my friends and family.
From the moment we arrived it felt like home, spacious and serene (and very, very clean) . The pictures do not do the property justice. Our hosts, Eileen and Gary, being very friendly and interested in getting to know about us and with that providing information regarding restaurants and even upcoming local events in the area during our stay. We hope to come back in the future.
Gary and Eileen's place was just as beautiful and impeccable as the pictures promised. We were welcomed with fresh flowers in every room and some refreshments in the fridge. It can't get any better than that. The location was perfect, close to downtown Sonoma and any kind of shopping you might want. Thanks to Eileen and Gary, we had plenty of suggestions on where to head for tastings or dinner. It was a wonderful time and I would come back in a heartbeat.
