Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We had a FANTASTIC weekend at Ryan and Sara's place for 4th if July. There was 6 adults and 1 baby and it was the perfect size for us. The rooms were all nice sized and having 2 bathrooms worked out great. We used their grill every night and were very pleased with the large table for us to all eat at. There's a beautiful upper deck that was perfect for morning meditation and the large living room was IDEAL for us to catch some World Cup!

    Location was perfect - we very easily drove up to bodega bay to kayak one day, went wine tasting another day, and to Russian river in guernville on the third day. We were coming from San Francisco so it was the perfect distance away for is to vacation and still make it home at a reasonable time. Given that we were celebrating three birthdays, it was great not to have to worry about the noise level at night and be able to just enjoy our vacation.

    Prior to our stay, they were EXCEPTIONAL with responding to our texts asking questions to help us pack and prepare. All in all, a fabulous time was had by all!

  • This was a terrific stay. Perfect for the needs of six travelers. The host was welcoming and accommodating, and the atmosphere was very relaxing. We would definitely stay again if we were in the area. We also had the opportunity to jog on the country roads, which was great. A lovely area of California.

  • We loved this house. The kitchen was great for communal meals and we loved having the large table for hanging out in the evenings. We were even able to use the sage growing outside in our cooking. The house was clean, surrounded by trees and flowers, and wonderfully quiet at night. We woke up to the sounds of birds in the morning. It was a magical change of pace for us New Yorkers. We had a beautifully relaxing weekend.

Between the Buddhas and QuanYins, the tapestries and the decor, I felt like I was at my cabin in Taos, NM! GREAT ENERGY! STAY HERE!

  • My family and I stayed at Sara and Ryan's house over Thanksgiving weekend and had a wonderful time. The house was great - comfortable, clean, welcoming, spacious, and well equipped (pictures don't do it justice!). We also enjoyed the large garden with fruit trees and the quiet, private, country setting in a beautiful area close to lots of great Sonoma county activities. The kitchen and big table were perfect for cooking and eating a big meal. Sara was a great host - communicative, friendly, helpful, and very easy to coordinate with over email. We would be very happy to stay here again in the future. Thanks for a great stay!

  • Sara and Ryan are lovely sweet people.The house and property need work and cleaning; however, the potential is great. There is lots of room, both inside and out, but no place to sit comfortably outdoors. The living room and kitchen are spacious and cosy. The huge TV is amazing! The family style kitchen table with benches must seat 20 people! The King bed is comfy, but the Queen is a futon and quite hard. All in all, I'd like to go back when improvements are made. Good luck with your 'work in progress', Sara and Ryan.

  • We've spent way too many cold 4th of July holidays in San Francisco, so me and a bunch of friends decided to find a nice, warm place in Sonoma County to spend the holiday. The Ranch was perfect. Its is a beautiful, spacious old house that is the perfect hang out for a group of people. And it is right in the middle of EVERYTHING. Eat oysters, go for a bike-ride, hang out at the beach, float the river, go to wineries... its all right there.

    We had a spectacular time, and I would HIGHLY recommend this to anyone who knows how to experience the Sonoma coastal region.

    Ryan and Sara were extremely accommodating and we felt right at home.

  • The Ranch was an excellent place for us to crash after a wedding in Bodega Bay. There was a note welcoming us to the property and some information on things to do in the area. There was a bit of confusion as I thought it was listed as 3 bedroom house which it is but the third bedroom is an office and doesn't have a bed in it, but they do have plenty of couch space so we were fine. They also contacted me about some items left behind so I didn't lose them. All in all it is a large house good for groups.

  • My friends and I had the most amazing time at the ranch. The house is just lovely and the photos dont do it justice. The living room was warm and inviting and has these amazing windows that overlook wild flowers and beautiful trees but we spent most of our time in the kitchen gathering around a huge wooden table sipping wine. It was an awesome vacation. Ryan even left us food in the fridge!!! I highly recommend this place, the vibe is just amazing and my friends and I can't wait to come back.
