Phenomenal place!! Great pool, hot-tub. Slice of paradise!
I had a great experience staying at this property and working with Mark. The house was just as described online and Mark was very helpful leading up to and during our stay. The location was just perfect for our large group in town for a wedding celebration. I would definitely recommend this home to anyone looking to have a relaxing weekend in a lovely location!
Highs: beautiful getaway; extremely clean and comfortable home; lots of space for all nine of us; kids love the pool and green space; owner's was very helpful and respectful. We had a WONDERFUL time!
Lows: owner told us straight up we can't use the washer and dryer. This was extremely bizarre to us as he listed both as part of the amenities. We had four kids with us and would have loved having the washer and dryer available. When I pointed out they were listed as the amenities, he said if it is important to us, we can go to the next town where the laundromat is. No apologies. Just matter of fact. Strange. I had thought perhaps they are for renters who are there longer but there is a list of rules posted in the house for all guests that clearly states no access to laundry. I was quite annoyed with the misrepresentation on mark's site.
We had a great relaxing stay at Mark's country home. He met me when we got there and showed us around, with clear instructions for taking care of the place.
The scenery was beautiful and we enjoyed the hot tub. Comfortable beds and nice kitchen for cooking. Our group was up there for a bicycle charity ride, so we didn't get to enjoy the house as much as would have liked.
The cell reception was very spotty and the internet wasn't working, but we were happy to disconnect for a bit :)
Great property - indoor and outdoor. Perfect place to stay for a large group looking for a laid-back, casual and relaxing weekend.
Overall we had a good experience at this place. The salt water pool (no chlorine!) and hot tub are well maintained and cleaned. Not shown in pictures, but there is nice BBQ grill outside ready for your use. We spent one whole day outside, and it was very relaxing. Landscape was well taken care as well.
Inside, there is a large living room and dinning space that fit 9 of us comfortably. We ended up eating in a lot because the kitchen is well equipped with large refrigerator, gas stove/oven, two separate dish washers. All bedrooms (5 total) are spacious and well lit.
It was unfortunate that for the entire 3 nights/4 days we were there, there was no hot water (in the bathrooms and kitchen) available. This was a holiday weekend after the earthquake, so we understood that fix was hard to come by. The steam in Bathroom No.2 made up for some of it.
If you have a large group or family, this house provides you everything you need, and you will be surprised how much time you will end up spending on the property.
Great place. Pool was nice and house was very comfortable.
Mark was great and very welcoming. He met our group at the house and showed us everything we needed to know for our stay. He was very friendly and provided extra sheets and towels for 2 additional guests. The house is very charming and in a beautiful location. It is in a private area, but there are many neighbors around and Mark made sure to inform us of the importance of keeping the noise level down at night. Since we were a larger group we just stayed inside in the evening and there did not seem to be any problems with the neighbors.
We had a great stay, but the house had a fairly serious ant problem. While we did leave some food out in the kitchen, there were ants in some of the bedrooms as well, a problem that I shared with Mark after our stay.
Home, grounds, and pool were beautiful. Owner is very thorough, protective, and detail-oriented. We definitely enjoyed our stay. Highly recommended site in Sonoma County for a big group.
The house and its location was amazing. Mark was a great host and very accommodating.
I absolutely give Mark and his home the highest rating. The property is beautiful, and Mark was very helpful and hospitable. He lives just next door and is available to help if anything is needed. The home and property are very well taken care of, as well as energy efficient. It felt like someone's home, not just a rental. I would definitely book this place again.
