Everything was great! The house was perfect, even better than the pictures. The hosts were very welcoming and helpful during my stay. I would recommend to others.
This place was amazing! We used it as a base for my groomsmen and myself before and after my wedding, and there was more than enough space for the lot of us. The neighborhood was quiet, the yards and other facilities well maintained, and the host himself was super helpful and made us feel right at home.
Steve and his mom who we shared the house with were nice to us and very accommodating. The house is located in a quiet neighborhood. It is fairly far from San Francisco. The house is well equipped, but it would have been nice to have a dining table as pictured (replaced with pool table). It would also be nice to have a separate and/or larger refrigerator since we had to share with the host.
Steve was great to work with. He addressed all my questions in a timely manner. The house was very comfortable for 10 of us. We all had a choice of sharing a bed but some preferred the family room couch. I hope they never get rid of that couch because it was nice and relaxing. The house is centrally located in a residential area with neighbors close by. We cooked and had all the utensils needed. Keep in mind when considering Steve's house that people do live there and there is an extra cost for exclusivity of the whole house which is not stated on the posting. I would recommend this house for large groups of 10-12 at the most.
We rented the whole house, as we had numerous relatives from all over the country coming for our daughter's wedding just outside of Petaluma. Steve's house is definitely "Friendly & Accommodating!" Steve had a chilled bottle of wine waiting for us as a welcome gift, which we enjoyed. The kitchen is well-stocked with dishes and cookware. There were plenty of towels. The beds were comfortable. The bathrooms were clean, with plenty of space for guests to store toiletries. The best part is the patio outside, where we spent most of our time, but the pool table was a close 2nd! There is an apricot tree in the back, and it was dumping apricots practically every minute. Steve encouraged us to eat as many as we wanted, and we did our best! They were delicious! Steve and his mom were at the house when we arrived. He gave us a tour, and they left. Steve needed to come back a couple of times, but he always texted me first to give us a heads-up. We were there for 6 days.
Awesome place! the pool table was a big hit with the kids & adults in the group. we were there with a big family & there was more than enough space for everyone. very clean and comfortable. met with the owner Steve and his mom on the morning of our departure since we paid extra for exclusive use of the entire home, and they were very friendly & helpful throughout our 4nt stay! nicely decorated interior & backyard with a jacuzzi. located in a quiet neighborhood, convenient to sonoma where the family wedding was held. (20min) drive. would highly recommend it!
Steve's house is in a great location with plenty of space. It was great for my sister's bachelorette party. They were very accommodating and made sure we had everything we needed. Thanks for the fun experience!
About the Host, Steve
I am passionate about meeting new people and being outdoors . Being self employed has allowed me to work in an enviroment I enjoy and it has also allowed me the opportunity to travel . Fiji ,Palau ,Indonesia and Costa Rica are a few of the destinations I have visited.
From those travels I learned so much from the locals I met along the way. Language, Culture, and food just to name a few. After coming back from those getaways I felt that opening my home to you would be another avenue to meet some fun and interesting travelers.
Fun ,Friendly, Respectful and Helpful would be a few of the words my close friends and family would use to describe me. In addition to traveling I enjoy scuba diving, skiing, biking,photography, entertaining and cooking.
