Overall Guest Satisfaction

  • Barbara is awesome, warm and genuine. We instantly felt we picked the right place to stay in Sonoma for our friend's wedding at Cornerstone Sonoma, a short drive away. It was easy to find and parking right outside was a breeze. The room was exactly as described and met our needs perfectly. I was thrilled to use an infrared sauna for the first time. It left me feeling refreshed and rejuvenated; such a treat. The bathroom was large and had a great zen like quality. Waking up to a private garden view and gentle music playing in the distance was a therapeutic way to start the day. I highly recommend staying at the Wine and Wellness retreat.

    Absolutely Eric, it did. I have nothing but good feelings about you and Phillip, and would have you back anytime. My best to you both.

  • My husband and I had a wonderful time at the Wine and Wellness Retreat. The room/bathroom were perfect for our needs, the location was a mere block and a half away from the wedding we were in town for, and Barbara was a fantastic host! We would absolutely stay here again.

  • Barbara was very nice and accommodating. Leading up to our trip she was great with communication and was quick to respond to any questions that we had, and even gave restaurant and activity recommendations. Her place was very neat and clean. The bedroom was perfect with a small outdoor patio space and plenty of fresh air and a nice breeze. There is a small sauna in the room as well, but we didn't have time to take advantage of it. The location is a short walk from the plaza, which makes driving unnecessary(nice after a day of wine tasting) . Overall it was a great experience and we would stay here again. Thanks Barbara for making our trip easy, comfortable and relaxing!

    Response from Barbara:

    I so enjoyed having you both here, please come back when you hop a flight!

    My pleasure Eric. Do come back again.

  • Barbara was very accommodating and welcoming. Her dog muppet is the cutest! Location is great (15 minute walk to Sonoma Plaza) and quiet. Bed was very comfortable.

    I was a little surprised by the apartment layout. This guest bedroom is right next to Barbara's room (which you have to pass to get to the bathroom) so there isn't a ton of privacy.

    May 2014
    Response from Barbara:

    Thanks for coming Gillian. I am always very respectful of peoples privacy by keeping my bedroom door closed while I have guests, and using the back entry and exit to my room to come around to the front of the house, as well as furnishing wonderful spa robes for your use to come and go from the private guest bathroom. I have not had any other feedback about this issue. I thank you for your feedback and for being a guest here at my home. You and your boyfriend are both friendly and delightful people. Bon chance in your upcoming foray into the world of business!

  • Barbara is very friendly and so is her little dog. She was very well organized and provided us with everything that we needed. The room and bathroom were very clean and had all the necessary comforts, including a sauna. Barbara gave us a lot of freedom in the house: enter and exit as we please, use the fridge, relax in the back yard, and so on. Overall, the experience was great - better than staying at a hotel.

    Response from Barbara:

    I am so sorry I had to cancel this reservation. I was called out of town
    during the time you were to be staying with me. I am sure that you will
    find another wonderful Airbnb host in the area. Thank you for your
    interest in my listing, perhaps if you are visiting in the future you will
    give me another try. It is unusual for me to be called out of town on
    business. Thanks for understanding.

    May 2014
  • Thanks so much for the hospitality. Sorry we were in and out in such a rush, but we enjoyed staying at your charming home!

    May 2014
    Response from Barbara:

    Thanks Chloe, maybe another time you can visit and take advantage of the amenities of my place. It was a pleasure meeting you.

    May 2014
  • Barbara was a fantastic host. She was always available to help, but also able to give me any privacy I needed. The room was beautiful and very comfortable. My stay was brief, so I only wish I had more time to enjoy the sauna and other amenities. I would highly recommend staying with Barbara any time!
