Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • This is the first time my partner and I tried something like AirBnB, and we were highly rewarded! We cannot say enough how absolutely wonderful people Geraldine and Joe are, for opening their home and sharing their beautiful space and family with us! We loved every second of our stay with them, and their generosity and kindness knows no bounds!

    As for the house, it is truly a labor of love, and we felt it in every little bit of their wonderful home! We really needed to get away from our stressful lives, and were reminded that there is nothing more valuable that genuine human connections, by our visit with them.

    The location of their home made us feel like we had arrived at a quaint home in the Swiss Alps. The beautiful intricate details of the home, from the pictures in the living room, to the charming room we stayed in, left us more in love and rejuvenated! We were extremely comfortable, and we were beyond well looked after. Geraldine and Joe also have insightful and profound stories to share, and their home will be paradise for a book lover!

    Waking up two subsequent mornings surrounded by the mesmerising woods and their lovely roses (of which we had splendid views) and going to sleep under a canopy of stars (also seen from the room's window), was really a treat for our souls!

    We will certainly be returning whenever we are in the area, and sending our friends their way! We have made friends for life, and we thank Geraldine, Joe and their amazing family for their warmth and camaraderie.

  • Geraldine and Joe were the most kind and accommodating hosts that we have ever had the pleasure of staying with. They were prompt in communication, a joy to converse with, and gave us the space we needed to unwind from the week. Their guest room and bathroom were spacious, clean and bright, and the grounds around their house are gorgeous! We were thoroughly relaxed after spending time in their beautiful gardens and sleeping on their comfortable queen-sized bed. We definitely recommend staying with them!

    Rianne & Mike,
    So, so DEAR … just like yourselves! Do come again!!! We will be pleased to offer you a special discount. Your young brother could stay for free if you don't mind sharing your bath with him. Joe's office is opposite your room … it has two very comfortable twin size beds (but no bathroom).
    Warm regards,
    Geraldine & Joe

  • We could have wished for a better place to sleep during our stay around Point Reyes. Geraldine and Joe made us feel very welcome in their beautiful home. The room is lovely, very spacious, quiet and private, with its own bathroom and access to the beautiful rose gardens. The property is on a hill and has great views of the surrounding pine forest. Thoroughly recommended stay!

    Laura & Christian,
    Joe and I SO enjoyed your visit ... you are truly an unusually lovely and refreshing couple. You brought joy ... your warm spirit lingers.
    Our very best regards and wishes for your safe travels,

  • We had such a lovely stay at their home. The room is beautiful and spacious with nice views. Private bathroom and private entrance. Geraldine was such a great host! We look forward to staying with them again soon!

    A few side notes: the road to get to their house is a two way - winding road but only fits one car at a time. Keep they in mind if you are arriving at night or in a large truck or SUV. Try and arrive before the sun sets to make it easier to see. Once you get up there the views and the house are worth it!

    Hi Tiffany,
    You are most dear to leave such a kind review. Thank you!!!
    Also thanks for mentioning the road.
    Do come again! We will be pleased to provide a discount.
    Warm regards,
    Geraldine & Joe

  • We had an awesome time, Geraldine and Joe were very accommodating and friendly, they really went the extra mile to make sure we enjoyed our stay. The property was beautiful and peaceful, surrounded by nature. We spent the evening watching the sunset and enjoyed our breakfast in the sunny garden. The room had everything we needed (even a few extras) and we woke up fully rested thanks to the comfortable bed and relaxing atmosphere.
    We definitely recommend this place!

  • This place is absolutely wonderful! The room was large, clean, and comfortable with a private bathroom. The gardens were beautiful and very well maintained, with terraces of flowers and great views of the hills from the garden. Geraldine did everything to make sure our visit was pleasant.
