Skeeter was a great host and was very responsive to all questions I had. She was very accommodating and made very helpful suggestions for our rainy weekend away.
First. Let me see that Skeeter under charges for this location. It is beautiful, super safe for families and my four-year-old boy absolutely loved the experience. More generally, it's nestled right in the heart of an area rich with cool little towns, awesome boutique shops and coastal charm. Within 15 miles you have the rustic Pacific Ocean, while the great redwoods surround you at night. I can't wait to re experience this restful adventure. Skeeter does a great job of making her place a home away from home, in a location that is magical.
I loved this house! It was cozy and in the middle of the Redwoods. We forgot our crib, but she provided a nice crib in the house. The fireplace was very cozy. We will be back. Thanks.
Skeet gave us an extensive description of how to be confortable in her house. The place was clean and cozy.
Casa Sophia was a beautiful little house tucked in the Redwoods. There was a welcome bottle of wine waiting for us and the house had everything we needed. The wood burning stove was a nice little touch and we spent most of our evenings around it - when we weren't in the hot tub. We never even turned on the TV! We spent our days visiting wineries & breweries, hiking in the redwoods, and at the Sonoma Coast. All were beautiful and all were within a 20-30 minute drive. I can't say enough about how enjoyable our stay was. We were sad to leave.
Our group was 4 friends and this house fit us all nicely, but if you are looking to fit the maximum of 6, just keep in mind it may involve air mattresses and couches. But there's an Aerobed in the house ready to go!
We had a wonderful stay! The house was more than we expected. The place is clean and stocked with everything we needed. It is the perfect place for a relaxing get away.
Wonderful and relaxing. Skeeter was the perfect host and incredibly responsive, especially over a holiday weekend. She kindly shared ideas and recommendations for activities and provided helpful information about the house. It's set in a beautiful Redwood forest, so it's incredibly quiet yet still convenient to many local sights. The space was large, open and perfect for a family to unwind, stay toasty by the furnace, play games and explore the neighborhood on foot. Our group was all adults, but we all agreed kids would love the space - especially a top bunk area in the second bedroom. Kitchen was well-stocked, making it easy to cook a holiday dinner. We would definitely recommend Skeeter's home and would love to stay again in the future.
