We are easy going and fun to be around.
Chad and Denise were super nice and communication was easy before and during the stay.
Their place was beautiful, cozy, and spacious enough for 4 adults and a dog. We would definitely stay here again when we're in the area.
Response from Chad And Denise:
Thank you so much. Can you think of anything we can do to improve things? Have a beautiful Valentine's Day.
Chad and Denise were great hosts! The place was spacious, well appointed, and we particularly liked that it is dog friendly. The views were great and the bed was super comfortable. The hosts left coffee, orange juice and bagels for us which was a very nice touch. Added bonus--vintage pinball machine that was a lot of fun to play!
Overall, really great experience.
If you're planning a visit to wine country, you'll have great comfort with Chad and Denise. My family and I (four of us in total) stayed in the lower level of their home. Their drive-way has more than ample space for parking as well as a nice, sidewalk leading to a private entrance into the space. We had very comfortable sleeping arrangements with two people in the bedroom on the queen-size bed and two on the pull-out couch/futon. There was also an extra air mattress offered to us just in case one of us needed our own bed.
We woke up every morning to beautiful views of Santa Rosa and came home to amazing sunsets. Their home is conveniently located to wine country on the Sonoma side as well as the wineries connecting Sonoma and Napa. They provided us with coffee, bagels, bottled water and fresh fruit (that my mother and aunt scarfed down!).
Other pertinent information to your stay? YES, their home is clean. The bathroom is clean. Everything was clean. And there's also a pinball machine. Denise and Chad are very kind and helpful and I'm happy to have found their warm, lovely home on airbnb. We truly enjoyed our stay.
The place to stay was on a totally separate and private daylight basement section of the house. It faced out on a private yard and garden. We sat on the chairs outside the sliding doors to relax, have a glass of wine and watch the many birds that come to the garden. There was a plentiful supply of bagels, fruit and juice provided. Denise and Chad were very helpful and friendly. The location is somewhat remote, but fairly central and you can reach Glen Ellen, Santa Rosa and Petaluma within a 15 minute drive. We also arranged to have our small dog stay with us, which was not a problem.
Agree with all the positive reviews. Quiet property even though Chad and Denise are right above you! But the views are wonderful and the location is equal-distant to lots of amazing places, from Redwood forests to the vineyards . Thanks so much for the chance to rest up!
We couldn't be happier and more satisfied with our experience at Chad and Denise's place. They were so accommodating and friendly. The place had everything you needed and more. We all enjoyed the generous variety of fresh fruits (all so delicious and sweet!). My parents especially loved the bagels and cream cheese. There was a variety of board games and put our detective hats on one night and played several rounds of Clue together. We wanted to get away from the City and enjoyed the beautiful views, bird watching - all sorts of birds enjoying the numerous bird feeders around the yard. Everything we needed they had - extra sheets and pillows for the pull out couch, an air bed as an option, popcorn, hot plates, all the dishware. In the evening you can sit outside on the porch and watch the fog roll in. They even let us play with their cool refurbished antique pinball machine. Fun times, good for a family escape, so nice to be hosted by such wonderful people. You just feel good when you're there. Thank you Chad and Denise for the awesome opportunity to stay at your place.
We really enjoyed Denise's place. The views were as advertised! The house is comfortable and quiet, and Denise and her husband were friendly and helpful.
Our dog loved being able to wander around outside, and being able to leave her in the house for a few hours while we explored the local wineries was very convenient.
The house is about a 15 minute drive from Santa Rosa and 15-20 minutes from Highway 12. The local roads are a bit busy for running, but we had some great trail runs in Annadel State Park, also about 15 minutes away.
We enjoyed out stay here and appreciated Denise's considerate touches like the OJ, bagels and cream cheeses set out for us.
Denise and Chad were exceptional hosts!!! Their home is beautiful, clean, and makes for the perfect weekend retreat! We will most likely stay with them again whenever we are in the area. They provided bedding, towels, bath products, dishes, utensils, breakfast items, coffee and oj, along with movies, popcorn, jenga!, and cards. We used their BBQ grill to make our own dinner and enjoyed the amazing views while doing so. The bed and futon were extremely comfortable, everyone woke up rested and relaxed. We were also big fans of the vintage pinball machine! I cannot say enough good things about Denise and Chad and their home!!! We are looking forward to our next trip!!!
Denise's home was absolutely beautiful. It was spacious for us and very clean. The views and garden are lovely, as well. There were special touches everywhere: fully stocked bathroom with lots of towels, shampoo, conditioner; a basket of fruit and coffee for the morning; and a fun pinball machine.
Denise and her family were incredibly accommodating and gracious and we really enjoyed meeting them. So did our dog, Piper, who enjoyed being able to come on the trip with us!
The location was convenient to wineries, hikes, and the Lagunitas Brewery and we highly recommend this spot to anyone!
