What a nice place for a wine country getaway! Very friendly host! Shiah was there to greet us and offer suggestions for meals and other things to do in the area. I wish our itinerary hadn't already been so packed that we could've spent more time in his company.
He set us up with the TV (Netflix) and wifi for the internet, and gave us a little tour of the room, which is set across an internal courtyard from the rest of his house. Very private and well stocked with keurig coffee pods, a mini fridge, towels, a very comfy bed. The room has its own thermostat and we never felt too warm or too cold.
The house is just outside of Petaluma (approx 6 miles from the historic part of town), but maybe only a mile off a main road and within a very short drive to stores, restaurants. Lots of animals to see on the way up -- there are a few sheep and a llama on the property itself. We also heard a lot of frogs during the nite, which I found really pleasant.
This place is great! The architecture is beautiful and looks just like the pictures on the website. Shiah was really nice and made us feel at home. We were introduced to his son and they even showed us his collection of butterflies set within marble shadow boxes. We definitely would come back again!
The location was perfect for me. The Host was a very nice man, the view was exceptional.
The room was in a convenient location for exploring the wine region. We loved the fact that the house is in the country, literally down a dirt road. The view from the house is fantastic, and my wife and I enjoyed a nice bottle of wine (provided by the generous host) under the stars sitting by the pool at night. Shiah was a great host, and he provided a lot of great recommendations. Highly recommended!
I enjoyed my stay at Shiah's. Everything was as advertised and the room was large and well-appointed. The rural environment, yet close to businesses and the freeway made it an ideal location.
We had such a great time in Shia's place. We spent 6 nights there and Shia was really helpful for us. Evey morning, he was giving us advise were to go and what we should visit. evrything he told us was amazing - the good minneries, good tour, the Redwood Forest, etc.
The room is big and clean with attach bathroom. The bed is confortable, we had great coffee and a good bottle of red wine offered by Shia. The last night, we went for a beer with him and its was a great discovery !
My husband and I stayed with Shiah at his spanish villa while visiting wine country for a wedding. The place was perfect for us and Shiah was a wonderful host. We arrived pretty late (past midnight) and the house was a little hard to locate in the dark, but Shiah was available by phone to give us directions.
The property is an older, rustic style, complete with lots of animals including a dog, two cats, Waldo the llama, three sheep, and chickens! We especially adored their dog, Coco.
Our room was exactly as pictured and very clean and comfortable. Shiah and his daughter Jenny were very friendly, but we still had a lot of privacy, thanks to the private entrance through the pretty courtyard and personal bathroom.
Shiah was really accommodating to our schedule as we arrived so late and also had a very late flight out when we left, but was very flexible with our check out time. We really appreciated that!
Staying with Shiah during our visit to wine country was a very positive experience for us and we highly recommend this place!
We had a really nice stay. Shiah was welcoming, the place was as described, and we loved the llama. We were even here during the Napa quake and were perfectly safe!
I had a great stay at Shiah's home. He was very accommodating and easy to communicate with. I enjoyed reading and getting some work done by the pool as well. Loved the laid back atmosphere and my pup was intrigued by the llama!
Let me be clear: this is a COUNTRY house. A lovely place, lovely host, excellent, very clean room with private bath, very quite ( i.e. In the middle of nothing, at the end of the road). That's exactly what we were looking for. In 70 min you can be in downtown SF. In 30 min you can be wine tasting in Sonoma. Very recommended!
