If you need me, I am a phone call away. Otherwise, I will not disturb you.
The neighborhood has a history of being a destination for vacationers from San Francisco to come "take the waters" at the old hot springs. Many summer cottages built in the area for them are charming and quaint.
Vern's taxi service is popular with the locals.
All furniture was my grandmother's solid mahogany. Please be careful not to put damp towels on the wood or damage the finish.

We stayed in Carrie's house one night for a wedding. It was perfect for three people. Very cute and clean. Quiet neighborhood and a short ride to Sonoma. We did not speak directly to Carrie but she was prompt in answering emails and giving us the information we needed.
My phone internet wasn't working well so I couldn't find the address of the unit. Carrie was very responsive and provided it immediately which we were thankful for. The description was accurate. We were VERY pleased when we arrived. The neighborhood was cute. A little further than the square than we thought but still no problem, and a short uber/cab away.
We would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a getaway in Sonoma. The outdoor areas alone were worth staying at this place for a week. We loved the front patio area, the side garden table, the backyard adirondack chairs. The kitchen was updated, clean, perfect for cooking breakfast. The bathroom was clean. And most importantly, those beds are some of the most comfortable we've ever slept in. We all had a very hard time leaving the beds each morning.
Thank you for such a wonderful stay.
Carrie is a delightful person. She was warm and friendly. It was my first time in California and staying at her home in Sonoma made it most enjoyable. The house is perfect if you're looking for a nice get away from the hustle and bustle of life. It is centrally located to Sonoma Highway where there are all types of places to eat, shop or just walk around. She recommended Citi Cafe, which was a few miles down the road in Kenwood and it was spot on. The food was great. We will definitely come back again.
We stayed at Carrie’s home for the weekend while in town for a family wedding. The house perfectly accommodated all four of us. It was clean, free of perfume & cleaning chemical smells (we have an allergy sufferer in the family) and the décor is charming. Casablanca is in a perfect location. It only took 5-7 mins to get to Sonoma Square. We called Vern’s taxi for a ride home from the wedding that was right near the square and it was only $10. Carrie’s home is quiet & comfortable and has everything you need. The AC works awesome too! We look forward to a return visit. Thank you Carrie!
The House was adorable and the garden was inviting. The house is centrally located and just a few blocks off Sonoma Hwy. Easy to get to Glenn Ellen or the square in Sonoma. The Kitchen had every thing. Small amenable bathroom with shower. Bedrooms were quaint but the mattresses were a bit worn and lumpy. I would definitely stay again.
This is a lovely little house with a humongous yard/patio area with a more than adequate kitchen and bathroom. It was nice and clean when we arrived, and for a short term house rental, is very reasonably priced. I would stay here again next time I'm in Sonoma!
About the Host, Carrie
Food, wine, and hiking are my hobbies. After a nice hike in the local State Parks, I love to go to one of the many great restaurants on the square for a nice lunch and glass of Chardonnay.
