We felt very welcome as Wendy was quite friendly. The room was well kept and nice. The room is in a barn, which I didn't expect, but could've missed it in the listing or other reviews. I would say the place is reaching in terms of value for the price you pay.
Gorgeous space in a peaceful environment. Easy access to Sonoma & Napa (15-25 minute drives). Well appointed, comfortable bed, strong WIFI. Exactly what we were looking for.
The loft studio was a great tucked-away getaway. It is exactly what it appears to be in the photos. Though, you'd never know such a quaint space would be inside an art barn.
Wendell was a great host and checked in to make sure everything was going smoothly. Likewise, Evan was a great resource and got us set up in the studio and provided us more than enough options for things to do / places to eat.
The studio was located on a quiet road not more than a stones throw away from vineyards. It was a very beautiful area. A car is a must.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at El Rito and the surrounding area. Thank you!
We had a wonderful experience at the Vineyard Gatehouse. We stayed 6 weeks and loved it. Wendy is an excellent host and the property is very recently renovated, almost everything is brand new. Access to Glen Ellen and the rest of Sonoma Valley is easy. We will definitely stay here again. Only downside is the wi-fi service which is great at times, but also can be slow at times.
Our group of six had a wonderful vacation in Sonoma over Memorial Day weekend 2013. The Westerbeke's home provided plenty of space- both indoors and outdoors- for our group, and Wendy could not have been a more gracious host. She recommended local restaurants and wineries, and would periodically check in with us via text to make sure we were enjoying our stay.
La Casa Grande is absolutely stunning. It is beautifully situated, spacious, welcoming, and full of vibrant art. The views from the patio are beautiful and we had the extra bonus of having a grey fox with five tiny kits to entertain us as we sat there. Being close to Sonoma was very helpful in facilitating our plans. Wendy was very accommodating of our rather difficult logistical arrangements (we had parties coming from 3 different and disparate locations with different arrival times) and every attempt was made to ensure that we were welcome and that our stay went smoothly. The rooms were spacious and well laid out; the beds were very comfortable; and the bathrooms were great. We were all thrilled with the rental and would recommend it highly. We hope to return before too long.
The casita was just what we needed!!! Wendy was welcoming and informative. We visited all the wineries and sites she recommended without deceptions. The casita rests on a magical site, amid flowers, wildlife, and valley views. It is also conveniently located only a few minutes away from Sonoma. I will stay here again in the future. Thanks Wendy :)
Very nice and quiet place if you need a place to sleep or like me, you're just in town to ride (bike event) and need a shower and rest for the next day.
We were a group of 6 people, some from the San Francisco Bay area, some from Europe. The house is really really spacious and can probably fit more than 6. It has everything you need and if you think about something you are missing, great hosts will bring it to you shortly after contacting them. Great views, great location, definitely recommended, especially for good size group.
We were happy to host Wendell. He was a great guest. We had a few fun exchanges and he left the place in great shape. We should be so lucky to host him again!
Wendy was a great guest - it is always nice to host other Airbnb hosts - they know what is involved on our side of the process and are sensitive to the work involved. VEry communicative and they left the Nest in great shape. We would not hesitate to rent to them again.
Excellent guests, very communicative, welcome back anytime.
