About this listing
I live in the ideal location for exploring the Wine Country. I am 10 minutes to downtown and situated at the entry point to Hwy 12 leading to Sonoma and Napa wineries. Annadel State Park for biking, hiking and walking.
Hello and thanks for selecting my site!
A few of my reviews say "We had a first class experience", "host was accommodating and responsive", and "a very comfortable bed". I have found that many guests now prefer going out to breakfast so I offer coffee
You are central to town and many wineries and wedding venues. The winery road to Sonoma and Napa is beautiful and many, many wineries are located on either side of the two lane road. There are over 480 wineries in Sonoma County. You're also close to Glen Ellen, Sonoma, Calistoga, Healdsburg.
Your bedroom suite is upstairs offering privacy and a tasteful decor. The bedroom has a remarkably comfortable bed and deluxe linens to pamper you. Lots of natural light,a table and chairs and private bathroom complete the bedroom. Off of the bedroom is a private, partly enclosed deck where you can enjoy a cup of coffee made from fresh coffee beans or sip a glass of your favorite wine in the evening while watching the stars.The bathroom is spacious with a new tile floor.
I enjoy keeping my home very clean. I'm pleased to provide extra amenities to my guests like shampoo, body wash, razors, and a hair dryer.
CHECK OUT time is 11 am.
I'm sorry but no single males, babies, children or animals.
PLEASE arrange your initial check in time so that you will arrive no later than 9pm. This is important to me as I rise very early. After the first check in you may come and go as you please. Please print this confirmation for directions because these directions will not show on your mobile phone. When you arrive at 300 Los Alamos Rd turn to the left and find a place to park. ( Anything open is fine). Look for a 3 story building. This building is located very close to the complex's entrance so if you go past the garages you have gone too far. The neutral color on the building does make it difficult to find in the dark. There are lights on 24/7 in the lobby which you will be able to see. There are entrances on both sides. Go to the middle of the building where you will find an elevator. Punch in 3 for the 3rd floor. My condo is #302, the first one you will see when you leave the elevator.
Interaction with Guests
Most of my guests are quite active. I see them in the morning and perhaps in the evening. I allow my guests to determine how much interaction we have. I am semi retired and work from my home.
I like that my neighborhood is established and that it is in a nice area of Santa Rosa. It really is the perfect place to explore Sonoma and Napa Counties. There are many wineries right outside my front door on Hwy 12 going toward the town of Sonoma.Napa and the ocean are 1 hour away.
Guests comment on the quietness, comfortable bed, spaciousness of the room and my hospitality. I love my guests!
Sonoma County is quite large. It is necessary to have a car here. I have had some guests use Uber or a service like that to drive them to wineries with success. Also there are cabs in the area.There are day tours available which have been well received.
Other Things to Note
I do not have air conditioning and in the summer temperatures range from 70's to 90's with the evening temps dropping down to make for pleasant sleeping. There are two fans in the room and a sliding glass door to provide fresh air. I like to be upfront about this so you have a good experience in my home.
I have a book of recommendations and am happy to provide you with suggestions on wineries, restaurants and things to do.
Spring Lake is right outside my door. Great place to bike, run and walk. For more serious hikers there is Annadel State Park right next door to the lake.
My kitchen is not set up for you to cook full meals but sandwiches etc are fine. Putting drinks in the fridge is fine too.
CHECK IN TIME NO LATER THAN 9PM.
Check out time is 11am.
The rest of the time you are free to come and go as you please as I have a combination lock on the front door.
Sorry, no pets, no smoking and I prefer women and couples.
You may use my washer and dryer as long as you stay here until laundry is done.
I am able to accommodate 1-2 guests only.
We had an absolutely lovely stay at Gaelena's home. The room was spacious and felt very homely and warm, with the personal way in which it is decorated. Gaelena was an absolute delight to chat to and she was very helpful in suggesting a dinner spot and answering any questions we had. The place itself is in a great location - near downtown Santa Rosa but also near highway 12 - we visited two wineries, one in Santa Rosa and one in Sonoma, and both were easy to get to from Gaelena's home. Would be glad to stay again in the future!
I had a great experience staying with Gaelena. The room was very comfortable and well furnished. I would definitely recommend staying here if you're in the area.
Gaelena is a great host! The room is very clean, big and offers a lot of privacy, because you have your own bathroom and your own private, partly enclosed deck. I can definitively recommend staying here!
Me and my boyfriend stayed at Gaelenas place for 2 nights and it was perfect. The room exceeded our expectations : it was clean, comfortable, quiet and with some privacy. The location was great to explore wineries. I would recommend this AirBnb to anyone !
The room was nice, clean and beautiful! The bed was very comfortable and well made. I'm very picky of beds, but hers was the best!! Overall me and my husband had a lovely time at her house'
Gaelena was very friendly and accommodating. The room and bathroom were decorated so cute in a purple theme and it was very clean and well equipped. We really enjoyed the little patio off the room and our sleep was very quiet and relaxing. It was also easy to access and in a convenient, but quiet location.
The experience was really good. We enjoy the place and the proximity of wineries. The better place to stay, so close from Sonoma valley. We will recommend to our friends!!
Thank you et Bonjour a Galeana!
About the Host, Gaelena
I'm easy going, love to laugh, reader of books, a baker and native to the area. I enjoy music, helping 1st graders learn to read and being creative.
I welcome travelers who prefer the quiet side of life and still appreciate being social.
I will always be on hand to lend a personal touch to your stay here. I enjoy Airbnb because it is built on trust and people enjoying people.
I'm concerned with your level of comfort when you're in my home. I like to offer fresh ground coffee, tea and a sweetbread for breakfast along with conversation if you would like. There is a small table in your room if you would like to enjoy your breakfast upstairs overlooking the deck.
Hosting is fun because of the many different types of people that come through! It makes life so interesting! I enjoy traveling and love to hear about other peoples' hometowns and travel experiences.
