Great accommodation into the hills near downtown Sonoma. The location is completely private and offers great views and amenities. Kurt was a great host and makes some incredible olive oil straight off of the tree. Highly recommended.
The Italian Villa cottage exceeded our expectations. Our hosts were very welcoming and friendly. The surrounding area was peaceful with beautiful views of the hillsides.
Yes -- this is a great deal. It is fancy -- but very tasteful. Original art work. Really lovely gardens. Great location in the hills above Sonoma. Gracious hosts. Fully appointed. More of a two-bedroom house than a pool house. Very modest cost for what one is getting!
Driving up through the winding roads with trees towering either side makes arriving into the open fields and up to the house that little bit more special. You arrive at a beautiful house at the foot of a small hillside and go round back to see the swimming pool and lovely gardens on the front door of the guest house; a comfortable and cosy two bedroom house with everything you could need including a small patio and BBQ grill that we utilised while enjoying a drink in the evening sun that you can watch set down into the valley.
Later into the evening we took a bottle of wine down to the jacuzzi while looking up at the stars above, an amazingly relaxing experience with a curious deer coming to say hello.
All in all, to getaway, the house is just perfect.
As for our hosts, Chris, Camille and Sarah, housesitting for the big man, couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful at the house and gave us an unforgettable experience in their home town, we couldn't have asked for anything better.
Fantastic accommodation, 10mins drive from Sonoma and 35mins drive to Napa. Walk up the hill for views across San Francisco bay, enjoy the hot tub or lounge in beautiful gardens. Kurt is a great host with very good homemade olive oil he may share with you if you're lucky enough!
Absolutely fantastic! Stunning setting in the Sonoma mountains - gorgeous landscaped grounds complete with a pool, new hot tub and bocce court ( as well as the occasional family of wild turkeys, deer or humming birds ). Greeted with a bottle of wine and treated with the most amazing home grown olive oil I have ever tasted, I couldn't have asked for a better place to spend a romantic birthday weekend with an a warm, intelligent, interesting and kind host family. Would love to return for the harvest in fall!
We had a great time in at Kurt's place this past weekend. I surprised my husband and I really nailed it with this place. It was like a private resort with the pool and jacuzzi. The pool house is very private and comfortable. Kurt is an interesting guy and really enjoys having guests. He gave us wine and olive oil that he makes and gave us tips for local things to do. This was a great first airbnb experience! When we return to napa we will certainly stay here again and we are going to send our parents as well. Highly recommended! Plan to have a meal at home one night. In retrospect we would have cooked on our own at least one night and taken more advantage of the place. Highly recommended!!
An absolutely beautiful property and the perfect way to experience wine country.
Staying at this cottage was undoubtedly the best experience I have ever had when renting a house. Kurt (the owner) was an exceptional host,making himself available and constantly helpful when needed, but also respectful of your privacy and out of site when you're doing your own thing. His son Collin was also a pleasure, giving great advice about local nightlife and restaurant recommendations. The location is ideal, far enough from downtown where you can enjoy privacy and the wonderful property amenities, but close enough to everything where you can easily drive to wineries, restaurants, etc. Our stay felt more like visiting old friends than renting a guest house from a complete stranger. Thanks Kurt, see you again soon!
The cottage is very well equipped for cooking and relaxing, which is what we wanted to do. Having been to Sonoma many times, we were looking for a beautiful setting that was convenient to town, the wineries, and not too far from San Francisco. The cottage perfectly met our needs. Kurt, our host, was available to answer questions, and at the same time, gave us privacy. While the weather was a little too chilly to use the pool, we really enjoyed the new hot tub.
