Rusti and Martin were great hosts! The house is awesome and it was very easy to get in and out of the property. I really enjoyed my stay and would stay again if if I come back through the area. The house is centrally located and has a great vibe, both Rusti and Martin were awesome.
Rusti was extremely responsive via email and even accommodated my boyfriend's and my late arrival (midnight). The common areas were great and very well decorated including the living room, big kitchen, pool and outdoor bar area with TV and chairs. The bedroom was as pictured and the bed was really comfortable. Perfect location, 5 minute drive into sonoma town center and the wedding we attended at cornerstone gardens.
Rusti and Martin were flat out awesome. We enjoyed chatting with them and getting their take on local restaurants. They have a beautiful home with lots of room and a great outdoor space with a bar, TV (w/DirecTV), and chairs next to their pool.
Except for the earthquake we all experienced together (!), it was extremely quiet at night, and you could easily see hundreds of stars on a clear night. The bikes were great also to roam into town, grab food, and check out the town square. When we go back to Sonoma, we're definitely going to try and stay with Rusti, Martin, and Sally (their lovable, easy going dog) again!!
Rusti and Martin were great hosts! They are a very kind, down-to-earth, fun, and accommodating couple. Their home is really close to downtown Sonoma, where we spent most of our time. Rusti gave us great restaurant recommendations, which we tried and loved! The home has everything you need; large room with private entrance, comfortable bed, pool table, bocce ball, and a pool!
We had a great time and look forward to staying there again soon.
Thank you Rusti for your wonderful hospitality and last-minute accommodations. Your house was a treat, especially the afternoon dip in the delightful pool and comfortable bed. thanks!
