I rented the room inside the house. It was clean, the futon bed firm and comfortable, very quiet, and it was thoughtfully provided with a fresh bouquet of roses, filtered water pitcher, hot pot, and teas. Adele was easy to communicate with, prompt in her replies, and welcoming. Sharing the bathroom was no problem. It helps if you like sweet old dogs. Great location, easy walk into town.
Adele was very accommodating and welcoming. The room was nice and had a separate door leading to a deck in the back yard. She had fresh flowers in the room and a cozy robe,
which I thought were nice touches. There was water and a heat pot for tea. On the weekend Adele shared a pot of coffee with me. I found her
place to be very convenient to the proximity of town. I would stay here again.
Adele greeted me at the door and after exchanging "how do's" she showed me the guest room and shared bathroom. She had towels set out and a little table with a hot water kettle, cups and tea. She presented me with a key to the house. She introduced me to her dog Freckles and we went out to dinner together.
In the bedroom there were assorted magazines about the area, wine tours, restaurant reviews and the like. She provided a big, cozy robe to wear and made coffee in the morning.
I look forward to another visit with Adele in two weeks.
Staying with Adele was a very pleasant stay. I love her compassionate attitude and kind, loving presence. It was very relaxing and close, walking distance, to town. She was able to tell me great places to check out and very welcoming. I would definitely stay there again. And her dog was so sweet!!
Such a pleasant stay! Adele has a lovely home and is within walking distance of all the nice things Sebastopol has to offer. The room was very comfortable and having our own access to the room was a boon as well. Would recommend it to anyone!
Adele is one of the most accommodating, courteous, responsible hosts I have ever met. I stayed for three nights and had nothing to complain about. The bed was comfortable and I slept for eight hours each night. The location was excellent with Whole Foods and Mombo's Pizza close by. She definitely took care of me as I moved from New York to the North Bay for a new job. Thanks Adele!
We have visited Adele's place many times. As usual, she is friendly and helpful, but not intrusive. We will be back!
