Great experience, and a perfect place to stay in Sonoma. We were only in town for two days, but it was great to have a two-bedroom apartment to ourselves. Gary stopped by shortly after we arrived to welcome us and provide some local information. Unexpected were the many thoughtful amenities: cold beer in the fridge, coffee and creamer, etc. All those things you would normally have to go out and buy were already there. We would strongly recommend staying here and we hope to return for a longer visit.
We had a great weekend! The accommodations were comfortable, spacious, and quiet. Great windows and natural light...I would have liked to stay in all day and read. Check-in, etc. was all very easy, and the rental had everything we needed, including kitchen. We would definitely stay here again.
This was an excellent choice for us, just what we were hoping for as a private apartment located in a nice and relatively quiet residential neighborhood of Sonoma. We had a rental car and were visiting the wine country for two days in late March. Gary and Eileen's apartment is very clean, actually spic-and-span, very comfortable, homey, well-furnished, light and airy feel to it, good windows, completely private (on second floor above a garage, owners/hosts live in larger house right next door. Very quiet and peaceful location, the only traffic noise was from road outside in morning around 7:00am and around 5:30 in evening with cars going to work or coming home from it, not all that noticeable with windows closed. Nice cozy and private spaces to sit outside at the back of the house, both upstairs and down. Gary came over from next door to introduce himself and ask if there was anything we needed soon after we arrived. Excellent firm mattress beds, two bedrooms, both with double or queen sized beds. Well equipped kitchen, good large cable TV in living room above a working fireplace with wood (we didn't use it, not cold enough in nice sunny weather) with nice couch to sit on in front of fireplace and TV. Very good temperature control for heat or AC. Owners generously provided good orange juice. The only two things that we missed having were a ceramic tea pot for brewing our morning tea (there is a tea kettle for boiling water) and a DVD player. [To be fair, the TV service does include access to a large list of on demand movies but I think many of them were pay per view and most of them not of interest to us; for people who carry their own DVD movies, a DVD player would be a reasonable addition.] About a mile and a half distance from the central square of Sonoma, some stores and restaurants were maybe half a mile away. We much preferred staying in Sonoma to Napa Valley locations, much less touristy. Wonderful old-fashioned one screen movie theater (Sebastiani) and some very fine gourmet restaurants on the square. This apartment would be a fine choice for a longer stay. Hosts have done a great job in furnishing it, maintaining it. There is an exterior staircase at back of house up to the apartment that might be difficult for folks who have trouble with stairs but that is clearly stated in description. Photos give a very accurate picture of what to expect, this place is actually even nicer in "feel" than the photos would indicate. Bathroom was very clean and everything worked well. We would be happy to return to stay here and would love to do so; if we had a week or longer to stay, this would most likely still be our choice. Thanks, Gary and Eileen.
This was truly like a home away from home! We liked the well equipped kitchen and we used it a lot. It had everything we needed and more.
A special nice touch with the beer ( that we didn´t taste) and the coffee and juice (that tasted really good) in the fridge. We loved the fresh flowers, the art, the comfortable bed and other furniture.
It was a perfect spot from where we did some nice wine-tasting-trips.
We had a lovely time at Gary & Eileen´s place ( we stayed a week) and could recommend it to everyone who want a nice, clean and comfortable stay in Sonoma with great and kind hosts.
We loved staying with Gary and Eileen! This was our first trip to Sonoma and we will definitely be back. The house was very nice and so close to the downtown area. The neighborhood is nice and the garden in the front is Beautiful! Gary and Eileen are fantastic hosts and we really appreciate their hospitality, recommendations, and help throughout our trip! They really know how to make visitors feel at home! Thank you for everything!
Lovely stay. Appreciated the clear communication and directions for arrival. The beer and coffee in the fridge was a winning touch. Felt safe and the off street parking was an added bonus. And the beds - so cozy!
As a first time AirBnB user, the experience at Gary and Eileen's lovely apartment was more than we could ask for.
They gave us useful information which helped us make our decision to stay in Sonoma area. Prior to our arrival, clear instructions were given via email to their apartment which was conveniently located close to Sonoma main town. Although we did not get to meet the both of them during our stay as we arrived late on our first night, there were plenty of information on wineries, restaurants and activities in the area which were really helpful!
The apartment was cozy and the kitchen was very well equipped which allowed us to prepare meals. Overall, the apartment made us feel welcome at a place far away from home. We would definitely stay at this AirBnB when we visit the area again in the future!
We had a great stay at gary and eileen's. The appartment is very comfortable and spacios. The kitchen has all the supplies you require and the beers and juice in the fridge were a very nice touch. Walking to sonoma was a bit far for us but by car it took only 5 minutes. We had a very nice breakfast at the sunflower cafe in town. We really recommand it. we would enjoy staying here again on our next trip to sonoma!!
Gary and Eileen had everything ready for our arrival, including fresh flowers in every room. The apartment is even more beautiful than the pictures. They saw to everything we needed. One evening during a cooking project we realized we needed vinegar, so we called them and they brought some right to us. Such service! I have stayed in wine country several times, and their apartment is unparrelled. Thank you for a lovely visit!
As mentioned in all the other comments, this is an exceptionally lovely and well-located apartment. You can tell a lot of thought and effort was made in the furnishings and provisions, with attention to every detail. Definitely a cut above found here. This is also an exceptional value for the very upscale Sonoma/Napa area. Thank you Gary and Eileen for a wonderful accommodation!

Gary and his wife were delightful guest ! A pleasure to correspond with and always cordial. They left the Moka Studio in super condition, which we always appreciate. Loved... getting to know them and sharing our love of wine, good food & Italian sports cars. We would gladly host them again and in the meantime highly recommend Gary to any other members of the AirBnB community.

Gary & Eileen were fabulous guests. They are very relaxed, funloving people and I enjoyed getting to know them a bit. They enjoyed the amenities of the property, which I always love to see. They left the suite in great shape and we always appreciate that. We hope that they enjoyed their stay as much as we enjoyed hosting them.
