  • Great place to stay! Wonderful hosts, centrally located area, and very comfortable accommodations. It's exactly like the pictures shown in airbnb. I would recommend staying at La Villa Hermosa to anyone!

  • I rented this house to stay with my in-laws in Santa Rosa. The house is in a great neighborhood and parking was plentiful. William and Margaux met us on arrival, showed us around and made sure we had every thing we needed. The back yard is peaceful and well maintained, the house well appointed, and the beds comfortable.
    Upon leaving I noted a couple minor maintenance items and Margaux seem thankful for the information, and indicated she would attend to them promptly. It was clear that she and William take pride in their property.

    I would recommend this home.

    March 2014
  • Great home and quite accommodating hosts. Wonderful place for a quick weekend escape from the City. Margeaux and Bill were very helpful, across the street if we needed anything, but respected our privacy—as advertised. I highly recommend this home.

    February 2014
  • The lodging here is absolutely wonderful. The house is beautifully decorated. There are two large bedrooms as well as living room, kitchen and bathrooms. Mari and William were very accommodating and gave tips on what to see in the area. It is located in a quiet neighborhood but close to downtown so it is easy to get around. Santa Rosa is a nice town and close to many wineries, etc. We would definitely stay here again if we are in the area and highly recommend it to others.

  • We found La Villa Hermosa to be the perfect home base for a long, busy weekend in Santa Rosa. The location is great. The place is very comfortable, clean, totally quiet and nicely furnished with all the amenities needed to feel right at home. The fully equipped kitchen, including fresh Starbucks French Roast coffee, made it easy to eat meals in. Margeaux and Bill are very attentive hosts and seem to have anticipated every guest need. I left a shirt behind and Margeaux kindly laundered and mailed it back to me. The bag of Meyer lemons she offered was much appreciated, too.
    We enjoyed our stay and would certainly recommend La Villa Hermosa to friends looking for a peaceful stay in Santa Rosa.

  • We had a wonderful stay while visiting family over the Holidays at La Villa Hermosa. William and Margeaux are great hosts, very willing to offer assistance but also respecting the privacy of their guests. Their home is very comfortable, well-equipped and located in one of the nicest older neighborhoods in town. A perfect spot while visiting the wine country, we highly recommend a stay at La Villa Hermosa. Jim and Donna 12/2013.

  • Staying at Villa Hermosa was superb experience. Bill and Margeaux were excellent hosts -- helpful and friendly. The place, itself, is tastefully furnished, clean and very well-appointed. The house is in a lovely, quiet part of town.

    I will not hesitate to recommend Villa Hermosa to friends and family. I look forward to visiting again, this time for a longer period.

  • Bill and Margeaux were the perfect hosts - from the moment we met on the doorstep of the beautiful bungalow, I knew we were going to have a fantastic stay. A generous basket filled with fresh fruit and breakfast muffins, milk and bottles of water were all provided, and the welcome platter was delicious. The jazz on the radio and the mood lighting was a lovely start to our stay in this spotless home - and it really was a home from home for us. The decking area out the back was a real sun trap too - perfect for relaxing after a day hiking, or to just take it easy.

    You could hear a pin drop at night - it's a super quiet neighbourhood, yet close enough to grocery stores, restaurants and coffee shops. There is so much to see in the area, and our hosts kindly gave us recommendations of the many vineyards in the area. We loved Santa Rosa - it's close to beaches, redwood forests, and you can drive to so many scenic areas from this fantastic base.

    Really hope to return some day - highly recommended.

  • What a wonderful and clean house in a quiet, safe and nice area. We loved the king-size beds, the tasteful furniture (sofa is Cabernet-Sauvignon coloured) and the veranda to the private garden.
    After a minute we felt like being at home - in the middle of this beautiful winery-region. William & Margauxs house is the perfect spot to discover the north of SF. So we can warmly recommend Willam & Margaux as great hosts and their house to all california-wine-Fans.

    September 2013
  • La Villa Hermosa is a great place to stay in Santa Rosa!! The home is quaint, yet has everything you will need for your stay in Sonoma County (and then some!). The back patio is the perfect breakfast spot - complete with a pear tree.
    The rules state that the maximum number of guests is 4, however The Pearsons agreed to accommodate a 5th person and there was more than enough space.
    The only drawback, however, is the shower. The shower head is a bit low and I found that I had to squat in the small stall to wash my hair (I'm 5'9").

About
Our names are Bill and Margeaux Pearson, and we began renting our Vacation Rental in mid-May, 2013 and have already confirmed several bookings. We are native Californians and have lived in Sonoma County for over 40 years. We are very familiar with all the wonderful things to do and see in our area. We have traveled quite a bit:in Europe, the UK, South America, the Mediterranean, Hawaii and also to many other states in the Continental United States. We love sightseeing and have become savvy travelers when it comes to taking all sorts of public transportation besides doing a great deal of walking and exploring wherever we happen to be. Because we live in the heart of the Northern California Wine Country we have become aficionados of the superb wines in our region. Margeaux worked for 21 years on a part time basis at 4 different wineries in our region giving tours, pouring wines, helping clients pair wines with food, hosting Reserve Tastings and assisting/planning/working during special Winery Events. She is well qualified to recommend wineries/wines to satisfy your wine palates. We are avid attendees of live theater, films, musical concerts, San Francisco Giants' and Oakland Athletics baseball and casual and fine dining eateries. California is known for its fresh meat, poultry, seafood and produce and both of us revel in cooking using fresh and plentiful food/produce/ingredients grown in our area. We also spend time on our stunning Pacific Coast beach-combing, searching out outstanding seafood restaurants, and simply enjoying the grand and beautiful Pacific Ocean. We have had many family members and friends stay with us at our own home and also in our Vacation Rental which we lovingly call "La Villa Hermosa." So we are quite experienced in being gracious hosts and taking our family/guests to all the myriad things to do and places to see in Sonoma County, Napa County, and San Francisco. Going wine tasting to some of the MANY wineries in our region. is at the top of our list as "Things to Do and See!" Whenever we rent our "La Villa Hermosa" we plan to be home (not traveling) in order to best assist our renters. We live directly across the street from "La Villa Hermosa," so we can make sure that your stay is comfortable and enjoyable. Experiencing our gracious hospitality and significant knowledge of Northern California will help to make your visit here unforgettable. The year-round weather here in Sonoma County is (email hidden) can get cold during our winter evenings, but overall the climate is mild. Do be aware that even during the summer months it can cool off in the evenings. It's best to check weather reports before you visit just in case you need to bring a sweater/jacket/evening coat. We get rain, of course, because how else would all our wonderful vineyards produce such world class grapes? Generally we get our rainfall in the winter and early spring, but there are still PLENTY of sunny, balmy days during those seasons.. California is well known for its ideal climate and this area of Northern California has comfortable, and tourist-friendly weather because it is not humid! We make every effort to make your stay at "La Villa Hermosa" an unforgettable and uniquely enjoyable experience! We have Wireless Internet Service and also a telephone Land Line for local calls. If you have special needs or require assistance with suggestions for transportation, dining, sightseeing, wine tasting, etc. we are able to direct you to the best possible place to accommodate your travel needs! We will take pleasure in hosting you!
