Alex took good care of us from start to finish. Prior to the reservation, he sent us an email with great instructions on how to access the house. Cell phone signals can come and go in the area, so his directions were helpful. The house was exactly as portrayed in the pictures. It was stunning and absolutely peaceful. The perfect place to come home to after a day of wine tastings and hiking. The furniture was comfortable and the bathroom is incredible. We loved sitting outside, enjoying the view, and having a glass of wine. We would definitely recommend. Alex also leaves a map of the area with his favorite spots marked on it to help you find the best local cheese, bread, wine, restaurants, etc.
The cottage was lovely, and exactly as described. It was a peaceful and quiet few nights, in the middle of a lovely part of Sonoma. Highly recommend this place if you are looking for some space and quiet.
Gorgeous property and setting; hard to imagine a more tranquil getaway. Hosts' attention to detail is impressive (e.g. Taylor Maid coffee beans from the neighboring farm, and Bonavita coffee brewer). We're looking forward to staying here again in the near future!
A warm welcome and guide to the property was given. Everything you could wish for was provided. The full five star treatment, from bathrobes and slippers to fresh coffee, fruit and juice.
Even toiletries were provided.
The property was as seen, with stunning views, peace and quiet. A one off property. Beautifully designed and situated.
Thank you Alex.

Alex was kind enough to meet us after dark and show us around the property. He had juice, fresh fruit and milk for coffee am the am all stocked. Everything you need when you wake up on. Upon waking up we were excited to see such amazing views from the house. Alex's recommendations were extremely helpful and we had a great weekend exploring the area. The cottage is fully equipped with towels, robes and even guest slippers. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a secluded getaway.
The pacific view cottage was everything my wife and I expected and more. We loved the privacy and quiet the most and will go back again someday. Alex is a very genuine host who loves his property and has created a perfect way to share it with others.
This was such a beautiful, peaceful place! Alex also provided a binder with restaurant and food recommendations. I highly recommend borrowing the picnic basket and stopping by the bakery and cheese shop and going for a lunch time picnic!
With every AirBnB stay, I find a new superlative. Alex's 'Pacific View Cottage' place was by far the most interesting, unique and secluded - all of those good things. What a cool place he has - not to mention how cool Occidental / Bodega Bay are. Definitely recommend.
This house was such a lovely retreat for us after our wedding. The home is stunning! The views are spectacular and we basically hardly left the place because we were so happy just relaxing and cooking our meals there. The kitchen is well equipped with high quality cookware, Al stocks the place with salt, pepper and cooking oils, and even left some snacks for us as well. Besides being stocked with all of the basics, he left us detailed binders and books on what to do in the area, from his favorite restaurants (which, as a local in this area once, I agree completely with his choices) to wine tasting and sight seeing. We also loved the short story collections he has in the house. Everything was very comfortable and tasteful, and Al left us completely alone during our stay so we could enjoy the priacy and solitude. I would only add one thing for anyone traveling with a companion, which is that the bed (at the time of writing) was a full, not a queen, which was a tight squeeze for the two of us who are used to a queen. Otherwise, we just loved it and really didn't want to leave.
The Pacific View Cottage was an incredible place to stay--a wonderful view, a unique building, and a beautiful part of California with lots to do in the area. The cottage is very separate from the main house, and there's plenty of privacy. Alex was a great host: he brought us up to the cottage and gave us an overview of where everything was and recommendations for places to eat and things to do--we followed his recommendations, and they were all wonderful. This is a great base for exploring west Sonoma County. We went out to the coast and checked out Occidental and other small towns in the area, and with more time would have gone up to the Russian River and spent more time just hanging out around the cottage and soaking up the ambiance. We only wish we could have stayed longer!
