We loved staying here! The views were amazing and the house was very comfortable. I dont have any complaints and I hope we get to stay here again!
Diane was prompt in replying to all messages. She is warm and friendly. The house feels spacious. Lovely hot tub and garden. We ate a lemon from the lemon tree (with the owner's blessing)!
There were 3 of us, and Carriage House was the perfect size. We watched movies, cooked, and had a wonderful bonding experience.
The common area has many windows and a lovely loft area.
Kitchen had condiments and cookware.
Our stay at Diane's place was fantastic! The house was incredibly comfortable and clean. Diane's family were wonderful in checking us in and out and felt very available had we needed something. Very much looking forward to staying with them again.
I couldn't really ask for a better host, the place had awesome views, a nice, solar heated swimming pool and a hot tub. The area was quiet and very rural (but reasonably close to downtown Sebastopol). I would stay there again in a heartbeat. If you planned a "hang around the house" retreat (swimming, hot-tubing, reading, quiet evenings) this would be a little bit of heaven.
Diane and Nick were absolutely lovely hosts. So sweet and attentive. The carriage house was perfect. Clean, quiet, organized, fully-stocked kitchen and bathroom with pool towels, comfortable beds and a VERY comfy sofa that easily seats 5-6.
The pool was magnificent and the views breath-taking. The hot tub was also a very nice feature. We will definitely come back! Thank you so much!
Only one word to describe our stop in this house: incredible!!! We were there for 3 nights and we really had good time. We were 4 adults and 2 young kids, we enjoyed a lot the great setup of this carriage house. The localisation is awesome, near Santa Rosa, Napa, Sonoma, San Francisco and Bodega Bay.
Diane and Nick are also great hosts, all of us have appreciated their great hospitality et their generosity.
I reccommend sincerely this place in wine countries for a family trip , a friends trip or for a trip alone with your spouse.
Thanks again to Diane and Nick!
