Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • The key was exactly where Joe said it would be. The place looks just like it shows in the pictures. Quiet neighborhood. Close to downtown Sonoma. We enjoyed the privacy of the backyard and pool. It worked out great for us to have a nice quiet space after a day of visiting wineries. We asked for more towels and cups and cereal bowls and received them promptly.

  • Wonderful stay! We came to Joe's guest house for a brief overnight for my wife's birthday. We arrived at 3pm to a lovely patio and pool with a charming little house with everything we needed. We spent a great afternoon in the pool followed by dinner in Sonoma(a short drive). A perfect quiet escape from SF. Thanks Joe!

  • The house was really great, very private pool area on a nice quiet street close to amenities. The owner was very accommodating, would definitely recommend this place.

  • Joe's guest house was the perfect accommodation for our honeymoon trip to Sonoma. The inside space can feel a bit tight but we were out and about most of the day so it wasn't a problem. The shower is fantastic and the backyard is a wonderful oasis. We didn't get in the pool because the pool temp was only 74 degrees so I'm not sure if it was heated at all while we were there but we did use the firepit for smores one evening which was great. The location is convenient and just a short drive to the main square and wineries. Definitely recommended!

  • Joe was a great host. Easy and prompt responses and instructions. The guest pool house was fully furnished with everything we needed including a mini fridge, microwave, and ironing board. We were staying in Sonoma for a weekend wedding in Napa and this was very convenient. Local supermarkets and drugstores are within 0.5 mile away. This was as easy at it gets for a weekend away from the city.

  • This place is a little oasis. So great for visiting Sonoma, in a perfect location only a short ride to the town and the wineries. Very relaxing, after a day of wine drinking - we made fire in the outdoor fire pit, almost every night. Instead of going out, we ate most dinners there, at the backyard table. This place is very peaceful and private.
    The guesthouse is very comfortable, it has everything you'd need. Small kitchen area with microwave and fridge, comfortable bed in a room mostly surrounded by double French doors overlooking the pool area and the greenery.
    Joe, the host, set everything up so well, we didn't have a need to contact him with any questions. Unfortunately, we didn't get a chance to meet in person.
    We will definitely visit again!

  • We had a wonderful stay with Joe. The place was very close to downtown Sonoma. It was clean with beautiful furniture. The outdoor area is very spacious and the pool is great. A wonderful experience! I would recommend this place for a couple visiting Sonoma county.

  • The pool house was a great getaway. We were fortunate to have a very warm weekend in April and made full use of the outdoor pool area. The cottage was private, quiet and romantic with the ceiling fan and garden views. Joe is a helpful host and I would definitely stay again.
