  • Kathy was an excellent and caring host, and the room (really, whole separate luxury apartment that happens to be attached to her house) and the views were both even better than we had expected - even after reading all the positive reviews. It was beautiful and very restful. The next time we're planning a trip to the Napa/Sonoma area, we are going to start by planning our lodging dates around Kathy's availability so we can be sure to stay with her again. It was that good!

  • This is an absolutely wonderful place to stay. The views are indeed spectacular and they are different everyday. The space is large, updated and in excellent condition and it has every amenity you need. Everything was ready for us when we arrived and everything was very clean. Kathy was lovely, immediately responsive about our reservation and with directions and answering questions. A private, quiet and special place.
    Thank you Kathy!! (Hello to sweet Sammy)

  • My granddaughter and I thoroughly enjoyed 4 relaxing nights in Kathy's cozy and luxurious home. Everything was exactly as described, with even more spectacular views than anticipated! Kathy was warm, gracious and accommodating, greeting us and orienting us to the various features such as the fireplace controls, jacuzzi tub and satellite dish, and also provided full instructions on-line. Kathy also emailed me directions and suggestions for local markets, restaurants and a video store. Kathy was extremely responsive in the booking and confirmation process, keeping in touch about our pending travel schedule and providing extra supplies that ran low during our stay. Once settled, Kathy left it us to contact her if needed and totally respected our privacy. It rained for two days but we didn't mind at all; we stayed in, watched movies, read books and enjoyed the views and cooking meals "at home". The apartment is elegant, spacious and quiet. The bed is unbelievably comfortable yet provides firm support. The apartment is in the hills, yet in 10 minutes you can drive to restaurants and stores and in 20 minutes you can be in downtown Santa Rosa. We can't wait to return! I highly recommend this lovely retreat and Kathy's warm hospitality!

  • My husband and I felt so blessed and taken care in this beautiful haven. The location is amazing and nestled in the hills surrounding Santa Rosa. This place is home to so much wildlife that my husband was overwhelmed with the amount of Birds that he could photograph from the Balcony! The accommodation is nothing short of 5 Stars and Kathy was so very attentive to welcoming us and ensuring we have everything we needed to make our stay perfect. We will be back and we would recommend this perfect spot to anyone traveling and wanting to have a romantic gateway.

  • It was such an amazing stay! The area, house and hosts were great. Much better than staying at any 5 star hotel. Nearby wineries and outdoor adventures. You wake up in the morning with absolute stunning nature views.

  • Staying at Kathy's place was unbelievable. Way better than the Four Seasons.

    We were greeted by her dog Sam, who couldn't be more loving and welcoming. He is apparently a talented local yoga and pilates instructor.

    We had our own carport and parked right out front of the entrance to our space. It was there that we found a delicious muffin and croissant waiting for us on our first morning.

    There was a full kitchen downstairs, with plenty of condiments and coffee. Kathy even provided us with orange juice and milk.

    Kathy's artwork lined the stairs, and was relaxing and beautiful.

    At the top of the stairs was a sweet dining room, decorated beautifully. There was a library area upon entering the bedroom. Great books and plenty to read to learn about the area. The bed in the bedroom was huge, and every detail was paid attention to, from the fireplace that lights up by remote, to the reading lamps over the bed, to the bedding fit for royalty and the Christmas tree with wine country ornaments.

    The views from the sitting area are unrivaled. The balcony was huge. The wooden vaulted ceilings were a dream. The walk-in closet was huge. We joked that we could have rented out the bathroom because it was so big. And it had wooden vaulted ceillings, a towel warming rack, huge shower, Jaccuzi tub, his and hers sinks with all kinds of bathroom items provided (even razors!). Even great views from the bathroom.

    Kathy surprised us with a bottle of local wine on New Year's Eve. She couldn't have been anymore accommodating seeing to all our needs.

    We had a fantastic time, and were amazed that we could pull ourselves away because we just might have found heaven.

  • Great place to spend a few days to wind down from the city. Peaceful setting with plenty of great hiking, biking and good scenery nearby. Great bath tub (for two people, with jets) and bed :) We also enjoyed watching a move from the hosts' Netflix account.

  • Kathy's place is a wonderful place to stay. The apartment has a private entry and was impeccably clean. The bedroom/lounge views were incredible and the bathroom was huge and luxurious. The bed was extremely comfortable. Kathy left us to ourselves but was extremely helpful when we knocked on her door to introduce ourselves. I cannot recommend this property highly enough. A great place to unwind and explore the surrounding area, being well located to winery regions. Thanks again, Kathy!

  • We had a lovely stay at Kathy's house. The views are indeed spectacular and it is so quiet and peaceful. Our 18mo son enjoyed exploring their garden and getting to know the ever sage Sam.

  • Don't contemplate. Just stay here ! ! ! Pat and I spent five very peaceful and quiet nights here. Sitting at the bay window, sipping wine, looking across the canyon, watching the moon rise and set, hearing the rain the last night, and just talking with each other as husband and wife of 34 years was just priceless! And..., what a respite from the traffic of 101. You will not be sorry for staying here - we guarantee. Pat and I have made a practice of staying at B&B's for the last 15 years or so instead of (website hidden) none, this is the nicest we have ever experienced. If we could give it more that five stars, we would.
