This is a nice place to hang out.

This was an amazing place to stay, and Barbara a delightful hostess. The place is exactly as pictured, beautiful and spotless. We had the entire ground floor to ourselves except for additional passing through of the family cat. Barbara had a light breakfast ready each morning.
I would highly recommend staying here. Lovely house, lovely family.
Where do I start? This was my first Airbnb experience and I think I got completely spoiled! Barbara and her sons were fabulous hosts. The short amount of time I was at Barbara's immaculate home I felt as if I was visiting an old friend. I haven't stopped talking about it for two days. Everything was clean, inviting, stylish, comfortable...just wonderful.
What a great place to stay, Barbara is a great host, she made fruit salad for us in the morning. The house is beautiful, the room is good size and the bed is great....
Barbara was the ultimate hostess. This house is beautiful and the landscape gorgeous. We had the downstairs to ourselves. She kept an immaculate house. The neighborhood is nice and quiet and the location is central to many different directions. This was a great place to visit and we want to go back!
Barbara is a very nice host!! She´s very outgoing and had very nice details with us. Like baking great healthy cookies for us and making a beautiful blanket for our upcoming baby :)
Beautiful house surrounded by gorgeous gardens!!
We fully recommend her for your next stay in Santa Rosa.
Barbara and sons were great hosts. Barbara graciously worked around two last-minute schedule changes from my end and was very flexible in terms of arrival/departure times.
I traveled with my girlfriend, both of us in our mid-20s, to Chateau Wine Country for a 3-day weekend. Barbara provided us with coffee fixings and a simple breakfast each morning, and invited us to basically just make ourselves at home in her kitchen (within reason, of course). She even picked up some Lagunitas beer (which we didn't realize was for us - sorry Barbara!) after hearing that my girlfriend was a big fan of the brew. We were able to store picnic supplies in her fridge/freezer all weekend.
The bathroom through the living room (full of books and a TV, all of which we were invited to use but did not take advantage of) was exclusively ours, with plenty of clean towels, soap, a blow dryer, etc. provided. The bedroom is close to the kitchen, gets some soft pleasant light in the morning, and the windows open up for a great breeze. We enjoyed a great breakfast (well... we slept in so much that it was often more of a lunch) outside at various sunny/shaded sitting spots each day, surrounded by Barbara's beautiful front and back yards that she maintains herself.
This was a great weekend at a fantastic home with a generous host. Chateau Wine Country is a great launching point from which to enjoy the surrounding wine country, some solid half- to full-day hikes, bike rides and anything else that may tickle one's fancy in the area. Thanks, Barbara!
What a great place and a great host! Barbara is a fun person, gracious host, welcoming and accommodating. We had a great time in her immaculate and stunning, spacious chateau!
Barbara is the best host I've ever encountered on while using Air bnb. She goes above and beyond. She even bought a baguette for us to enjoy when she learned that my boyfriend was french! Her home is amazing, very comfortable and quiet. The shower is huge and the bed is very soft. She let us use all the ice from her fridge for our cooler and I accidentally left my belt which she offered to ship to me. The location is a little far from Sonoma Square, but there are many wineries very close by and you'll have no problem finding things to do. Five stars!
The chateau is marvelous and in a great location, lots of tranquil space inside and around the house. Barbara is a great host. She accommodated our late arrival and late check out on Sunday and gave restaurant recommendation for a late dinner within walking distance from the house.
Barbara was easy to talk to and communicate with. She left the place in good condition and would be happy to host her in the future.
Barbara had a short stay with us this week. She was a great guest and had great communication. She was clean and neat, it was hard to even know she was here! I would recommend her to other hosts!!
Barbara's Sonoma County home is in a perfect location if you want to experience the wine country...20 minutes from Bodega Bay, 15 minutes from Healdsburg, 20 minutes to Calistoga...minutes from wineries and fab restaurants... her home is beautiful, the room is comfortable, she makes you feel very welcome!!! I recommend it to all my travelling friends!!
