I'm a freelance speech broker, health advocate, and resident of Petaluma, California living with my husband of thirty years Allan, a micro-brew expert, and beverage consultant.
We thoroughly enjoyed spending 4 nights with Julie and Allan Sloway. Their home is very welcoming and is convenient for getting around to the wineries and oher points of interest. Julie and Allan are both very bright and personable. They are gracious hosts and we had lots to talk about. They were very forthcoming with ideas for restaurants and local places to go. Julie made fresh pumpkin bread and zuccini bread which were delicious. One morning they even made us fresh eggs from chickens that they raised themselves. We would definitely recommend Julie and Allan‘s home to anyone visiting Sonoma County.
Julie was so sweet! I was late for my planned arrival and she was very understanding. Perfect and simple - just what I needed.
Julie is a great and gracious host. We enjoyed are stay completely and would be delighted to come back.
We spent 3 nights in Julie's and Al's house and it was just wonderful! The house is beautiful in a safe and quiet neighborhood and their little dog Tucker was so cute! Everything was very clean and the bed so comfortable. Julie made the best banana bread we ever had and Al spoiled us with a delicious, spontaneous dinner, a hot tub with ice water he brought us and many many tips he gave us to make our stay in and around Petaluma just unforgettable!
We would love to return someday and we highly recommend this place!!!
Julie and Al (and Tucker!) were such amazing hosts! They seemed genuinely excited to have us and were happy to play host. When we asked to use their hot tub, they not only set it up for us, but also got us towels and put them outside, brought us ice water, and suggested we go for a dip in the pool as well. They took a genuine interest in getting to know us and were more than accommodating. Definitely stay with them if you want a friendly, positive, and enjoyable experience!
We stayed with Julie and Al for 2 nights while getting away from the Sacramento heat and visiting the beach and local brew pubs. The room was very comfortable, and both Al and Julie were extremely friendly and gracious hosts. Over morning coffee and homemade banana bread they gave us tips on local activities, Sunday morning Julie even made us breakfast sandwiches with eggs from their own chickens! The location is very convenient to downtown Petaluma and Lagunitas Brewery.
A great lodging choice, we would love to stay with Julie and Al again.
We had a wonderful stay at Julie's and Al's house. They are amazing hosts, so kind and helpful.
The room was very clean and comfortable. We had one of our best sleep.
Beware of Tucker, the dog! :-) He loves chocolate! In fact, all the food! :-) Such a funny and friendly dog.
We highly recommend to stay at Julie's place.
We had an amazing stay at Julie and Al's place. We appreciated : 1/the very comfortable queen size bed, 2/own bathroom, 3/Julie's breakfasts and the famous banana cake!, 4/their flexibility on time of arrival and free wifi, 4/convenient location if you are visiting the wine country. Overall, they were lovely hosts : easy to talk with and they really made us feel like at home. Highly recommended, just do not hesitate...
Nous avons passé 2 nuits chez Julie où nous nous sommes sentis comme chez nous dès l'accueil. Juilie et son mari forment un couple très chaleureux avec qui il est facile d'entretenir une conversation sur toutes sortes de sujets. Il nous ont également conseillé sur les endroits à visiter dans Petaluma et dans la région. La chambre est très confortable et la salle de bains dispose de tout ce qu'on a besoin. Le petit déjeuner était copieux et délicieux. Nous remercions Julie et Al pour cette magnifique expérience et nous recommandons fortement leur maison.
We are very glad we stayed here rather than paying for a hotel. Our weekend was jam packed so all we needed was a bed and a shower to get going, and this was perfect.
The house is great, the bedroom was simple and clean, the bathroom was big and the shower was clean. Julie is hilarious. They are two of the nicest people you will ever meet.
We will definitely stay here the next time we do a Sonoma Valley wine excursion!
Julie made the reservation for her husband, Alan. Both have stayed with me before. They're terrific guests! Especially since Julie sent down some of her casserole with Alan . Awesome!
Julie and Alan are thoughtful, kind, gracious and independent. They're the best!
Julie's a joy to have as a guest. Sweet, kind, thoughtful, warm, neat and makes terrific lasagna and garlic bread (and I mean DELICIOUS)!
Julie's husband Al stayed for a night and was a fantastic guest. Since he and Julie are veteran airbnb hosts themselves, he was able to give me some helpful tips! He was very friendly and a great guest all around. He left the place spotless and even left me some of my favorite beer in the fridge!
Julie's husband Allen stayed with me and he was a great guest. Super respectful and neat...would have him back again any time!
Julie is also an airbnb host so she knows the ropes. Told me I should be charging more for what I offer!!
