Ellen and Bob were extremely gracious hosts. When we got there we were greeted and shown the home. Ellen and Bob made us feel right at home and very comfortable. The place is gorgeous. It is in walking distance from downtown and perfect for a relaxing get away.
Great experience! Ellen was so kind and so helpful! We had an amazing time in Sonoma thanks to her advice! The place is beautiful! Would definitely stay there again and again!
Ellen & Bob were very friendly and welcoming! They even left a bottle of wine for us and suggested that we try out a well known local restaurant famous to the area. Would definitely try to come stay here again if were in the area.
My husband and I stayed at this charming pool house in Petaluma. Ellen was a very flexible, generous host. She was extremely hospitable and she paid attention to every detail that a guest would want. The pictures in the listing are accurate - so cozy inside! Petaluma is a fabulous little town for a weekend getaway. If you go, be sure to get a loaf of bread at Della Fattoria!!!!
My sister and I stayed in Petaluma to get out of the San Francisco Bay Area for a weekend. Bob and Ellen were very accommodating and helpful hosts. The grounds and house is absolutely beautiful and Petaluma is the perfect getaway. All of Ellen and Bob's recommendations made our weekend complete! Thank you to you both. We will be back to Petaluma!
My boyfriend and I spent a weekend in the pool house and it was wonderful! Ellen is a tremendous host who left us a nice bottle of wine and plenty of suggestions of nearby bars, restaurants, and bakeries (Drinks at Taps was great and the Rosemary meyer lemon bread at Della Fattoria was the best bread I've ever had). Also, temperatures were below freezing outside at night, but the cottage stayed nice and warm with the space-heater. The accommodations were exactly as described, and actually exceeded our expectations. We especially enjoyed the privacy and quiet, being a short 15 minute walk from downtown, having access to the BBQ, being within 20-30 min of Pt. Reyes (all which is scenic), and the dry sauna. This was our first Airbnb experience, and we had a true weekend getaway here!
We would highly recommend staying here! Ellen was great as a host, providing ideas of things to do in the area and the location was very convenient for us. She was very friendly and although this is a guest house on their property, you have all the privacy you need. Accommodations were just as great as any hotel room.
