This is our second home- a family home with neighbors. We ask that you respect the property and our neighbors.
The airbnb was wonderful and pretty clean. Lots of instructions from Liv but she pretty thorough with her instructions and helpful in terms of figuring out where keys were and how to manage the pool. The pool is very great and views are awesome! Also very great location to sonoma and napa wineries.
The space is great for pets but if your pet wanders far you should keep a close eye since the fence to the vineyards in the back is not blocked off. We had to manage a few issues but they turned out okay and Liv was pretty responsive in resolving it.
We loved Liv's Sonoma home! It was the perfect setting and setup for three mid-20s couples in town for a long weekend visiting wineries. The pool and hot tub were nice features, the furnishings were comfortable and modern, and the two homes were clean and well appointed with appliances and everything else you'd need! The bathrooms were perfect as well.
Liv is super easy to communicate with and very hospitable! We had an issue with the thermostat (the prior guest had locked it somehow) and she traded emails with me to help fix the situation immediately, which was awesome! She could not have been a better host. It was a breeze to check in and check out.
I'd definitely return to Liv's home and would highly recommend her and the home to anyone else in the area!
Felt welcome upon arrival, super easy check in, house was very clean and comfortable. The guest house was beautiful as well.
This house was very nice! Great space, both the main house and the studio; they were kept implacable. Lots of entertaining options for little kids and grown ups. The pool had perfect temperature. We loved staying at Liv's house and she was very responsive to our request. We will definitely consider staying in this place again in the future.
Liv's property was perfect for a small family getaway staycation for 6 adults plus a toddler (property was equipped with toys, pack'n'plays, high chair, toddler safe plates/utensils, and even a stroller). Having the main house and the studio was perfect for our size group, and would definitely work with up to 8 adults comfortably. The layout of the living space and the design of the outdoor space including the pool provided utter comfort for times when you wanted to all be together, and when everyone needed a little solitude. The heated, salt water pool - very well designed to function for lazy loungers, active swimmers, and safe kid play (my 2yo enjoyed "her pool" platform for hours each day). Though it is off one of the main roads, the depth of the grounds+iron gate+landscaping keeps the street noise at bay. Only a few minutes away to Sonoma Square, grocery stores, and great eateries. Liv was very responsive to the few contacts we made regarding garbage pick up while even she was on vacation. We were one stay in the middle of what seems like many based on the calendar, and the place was pristine and ready for our arrival. We definitely were sad to return to reality, but have this place bookmarked for future stays!
The property was wonderful---even better than it looked in the photos (but pretend that's not so, to manage your expectations!). It's a very relaxed space with plenty of room for different activities for adults and kids - pool with hot tub, ping pong table, two different outdoor eating spaces, and a separate "little house" where, say, a 3 year old can stay with a parent or his nanny so he doesn't wake everyone else at the crack of dawn. The only small wrinkle was being right off Napa Rd, which has a 50 m.p.h. speed limit. You can hear the traffic as background noise, especially Fri - Sun. But this is a great property, and we're planning on renting it again if Liv will have us!
Very enjoyable vacation. The property was exactly as described. Would recommend.
