This home is a little sanctuary. Lisa is very helpful and responsive. The kitchen is well supplied with everything we needed to make dinner a few different nights and the rooms and bathrooms were very clean. It was extremely helpful to have shampoo, conditioner and body wash in both of the showers and the mirrors in two of the bedrooms made it easy for multiple women to get ready in the morning. Driving into the neighborhood made us a little wary, but it is quiet and close enough to downtown Sonoma and to Napa. It was very easy to use the wifi and roku on the television - Lisa's instructions for that and for clean up were very precise and easy to follow. Thank you for the great stay!
This was the PERFECT first time experience with airbnb. Lisa's home was beautiful and welcoming - perfect for a girl's getaway to wine country. We kept referring to the home as "our Aunt & Uncle's house that we were lucky enough to borrow for the weekend" :)
Lisa is incredibly friendly and responsive. I did a TON of research of other listings but from the moment I booked, I knew I made the right choice.
The pictures were accurate with the exception of the backyard. We were completely surprised AND DELIGHTED to find a backyard fire pit where we roasted marshmallows and made S'mores! In place of the hammock in the pics there is a pool (covered and can't be used) - that didn't matter to us but I wanted to point it out.
I would definitely stay here again. This home has incredible indoor & outdoor common spaces that are ideal for groups. We spent the first night outside by the fire pit and the second night curled up in chairs/couches in the living room playing a selection of games that were there. This home is super cozy and clean throughout.
I would recommend this home for 2 couples with up to 4 kids or 6-7 singles. Two of the bedrooms have full/queen beds and one has 4 bunks (but you can't have adults in the upper bunks). The host did have an air mattress though.
Such an incredible find! Enjoy!
Lisa was a great host - very responsive including tips for things to do. Her house is equipped with everything you need (even for our family with two small children) and well located a short drive from Sonoma square. Definitely recommend.
Beautiful place in a great location
Wonderful for families
Lisa is a fabulous host
We had a fantastic stay at this home in Sonoma! Lisa was incredibly welcoming, and she communicated very quickly and clearly before, during and after our stay. The place was immaculate and stocked with everything one could possibly need for a vacation stay. From linens and towels to dish soap and cooking tools, we found everything we could possibly have needed during our stay. This place is perfect for a family or group looking for a good base camp for their time in Sonoma. It's a short drive from wineries and restaurants, and it's also convenient to grocery stores and other retail. We would definitely recommend Lisa's home for Sonoma weekends with family or friends!
I love this place. The view is amazing and the house is so comfy. Truly a special place. Once gain, the new BBQ rocks and I love the new fridge. I will be back again.
This is a wonderful place to stay – the house is larger than it looks in the photos and feels very spacious – comfortable furnishings, and good amenities, including a well-furnished kitchen, lots of beach and bath towels, and a new outdoor propane grill. Nice to be grilling with an ocean view! We enjoyed the lanai each and every day – morning bird and whale watching and lovely sunsets. Very enjoyable to be in a neighborhood and not a tourist area, yet it was a great location for getting to the best beaches. Lisa was a thoughtful and responsive host, giving us helpful information and checking on our stay. A few minor things – the second bedroom has a double bed and all the sheets were queen or king-size and it would be nice to have four beach chairs instead of two. We would recommend this house to anyone coming to the Big Island.
Our daughter exchanged emails with Lisa so we were well informed. The house was as described with the addition of plenty of toys for our grandson to enjoy. The spacious deck was perfect for hanging out and eating dinner. There was a problem with the Wifi and the host tried hard to help us fix it. Not fixed but wasn't a big issue. Kitchen is well equipped, house is well heated, cosy but roomy. After dinner we walked to the lovely nearby park and perched on a big redwood. We succeeded in completing our last minute shopping at the nearby Safeway without difficulties. All in all we were extremely pleased with our Thanksgiving.
This was a great place with lots of space and a great view. It was just two of us, but we could have easily brought a whole family. We liked this location because it was in a nice quiet area, but still a short drive away from the beaches near the resorts, restaurants in Waimea, and small shops in Hawi. Lisa was really nice and Danielle greeted us upon arrival. Danielle was also very flexible as we had open ended plans and didn't know exactly what time we would be arriving at the cottage. You could also tell they were very responsive to past guests because there were heaters and an AC unit in the cottage even though the weather was so nice we didn't need them. We enjoyed the great views from the cottage; watching the sunset from the lanai and stars at night.
Our stay here was wonderful! The house is perfectly clean and in a great location. It is a nice quiet neighborhood and was perfect to relax in the beautiful backyard. Lisa was extremely helpful and great to work with. I would highly recommend staying here for a weekend away.
Lisa and her partner have been amazing guests through and I am happy I got to host them. They are friendly, communicative, very smiling and took great care of the place. I highly recommend them!
Lisa and Michelle were great guest! Left the cottage in immaculate condition. They, being Airbnb hostesses themselves, they gave us great ideas, since this is our first vacation rental. Would definitely welcome them back for another stay.
We really enjoyed staying at Kohala Cottage. It was clean, spacious, and located in a quiet, real neighborhood that allowed us to get away from the touris trap hotels and loud crowds. It was mellow, serene and relaxing! It is also located near a variety of beaches that offered either good boogy boarding in medium sized waves, turtle watching in a bay with soft-lapping waves, or wide sandy beaches for relaxing in the sun. We loved it!
