The listing was much better than Skeeter described with ample parking and an amazing backyard space amongst the redwoods. It was serene and peaceful and really close to two small towns with some great restaurants! The house was beautifully presented and huge and we were made to feel so welcome by Skeeter who kept in touch with us regularly. The bedrooms were awesome, both en-suite (One thing I would note is that two of the double beds are in the same room (one in a loft area) so don't go expecting 3 bedrooms for 3 couples, 2 won't get very much privacy!) I couldn't recommend it highly enough and am already planning on coming back for a visit!
Casa Sophie is a lovely holiday spot. 2 min stroll to a delicious coffee shop and the golf course restaurant. Lots of space. Well equipped kitchen. Quiet and peaceful. Great set up for kids - jungle gym in the woods, can "lock" off deck to keep kids within view, cute little out door dining table for the kids. All in all, a welcoming spot to stay.
We so enjoyed our weekend staff retreat at your lovely space. We felt right at home from the very moment we stepped onto the deck!
We especially appreciated the gate so that my little Maltese (Aspen) could roam around the deck safely. Everyone was comfortable, plenty of space, quiet neighborhood, great walks, fires going most of the time and we so loved the tall redwoods! We hope to be back again! Thank you for providing just what we needed every step of the way! from the 'refreshed staff' at Bookkeeping Plus!
My family and I had a great time staying at Skeeter's place amongst the redwood trees, we only wish we could have stayed longer.
The house is well equipped and perfect for hanging out and making some great dinners on the grill. The kitchen has everything you need too and plenty of wine glasses for all that Sonoma County wine you will buy! Will definitely try to return soon.
Skeeter was very responsive to questions about the property and generous in the time she took to answer questions. Casa Sophia presents in person as it does in the photographs: a spacious home in the redwoods, well-stocked dishware and cookery and all the amenities (plus hot tub) right by the beautiful golf course.
My husband and I booked a trip up here with our 23 month old and some old friends. We needed a break from the city and we jumped on the chance to stay at a nice place that our curious little boy can also enjoy. I ran into a scheduling mixup (entirely my fault) after I booked the place and I'm very happy to say that Skeeter was quick to respond and super nice about my annoying questions.
When we first arrived, we were warmly greeted by a nice card and a bottle of wine.
The home is private, clean and well cared for, with thoughtful details throughout. The layout of the house flows well with several nice access points the beautiful wraparound back deck, which was perfect for grilling and relaxing in front of the toasty chiminea. We also especially enjoyed how cozy and well attended the home is: easy access to Sonos sound system, a well appointed kitchen, the cute play area, and of course, the hot tub under the redwoods was a very nice touch.
We all had a blast at Casa Sophia and we look forward to coming back. Skeeter, thank you for a wonderful stay!
