This is a fantastic location in the heart of the wine region of Healdsburg. Easy to access and a quick drive from SFO. Upper barn apartment sleeps 5 comfortably, one bathroom but that was not an issue for our group. Clean and good kitchen to prepare meals, did not grill as it was hot and had to do charcoal. You likely can ask host to use their grill. Furnishings were good. Towels, sheets, bedding good. This is a big property. Hosts likely just getting their stride for rental season, gardens lovely, outdoor furnishings prevalent. Hosts very friendly. Overall impression is very good, a little extra attention to sprucing up needed but again, early in season. (note: Verizon network does not work well there. House WiFi good for searches, but cell service for messaging difficult, news to know)
We stayed here for nearly a week in July, and not only is it a relaxing home base for a wine country trip, but it is also a great location for the IM Santa Rosa race. It is about halfway between transition 1 at Lake Sonoma and the finish/T2 in downtown Santa Rosa. It is located minutes from downtown Healdsburg where there are shops and restaurants, and about 15 minutes to the Whole Foods in Santa Rosa. Plus on race morning my husband was able to drive me up to Lake Sonoma which saved precious time and my nerves.
We have a 6 year old and we had a lot of fun enjoying all the property amenities. Ross even has some toys in the apt that we enjoyed after the sun went down. The apt is really well stocked (towels, utensils, coffee maker, coffee, etc) and comfortable. Plenty of towels and comfy beds.
Ross is a very welcoming host and guide to the area, and seems to sincerely enjoy having people enjoy their stay at his place.
This was such a great find on FlipKey and we will stay there again when we visit Sonoma. So happy with our visit!
We enjoyed the place. Beautiful and peaceful location! The place is well stocked with cooking supplies and plenty of towels
The owner is super friendly. He had wine, fruit, and flowers waiting for us in the kitchen. Also Peets coffee! Nice deck with BBQ. We ate on the deck overlooking the beautiful garden. Beds were comfortable. The only minus is the bedroom with the twin beds is too small to have a suitcase in the room. We solved that problem by keeping it in the hall, which worked for us.
We were two couples that stayed in the barn on a Saturday night whilst passing through Healdsburg. The accommodation was a large kitchen, lounge, outside deck, bathroom and 2 bedrooms; one with a king size very comfy bed, the other with two singles and then a pull out queen size day bed in the lounge. The apartment was left very clean and the kitchen had everything you'd need. We ended up cooking on the BBQ after an early evening swim - it was gorgeous. The gardens and surroundings are beautiful and you instantly relax as soon as you step foot in the property. Ross left us a load of information, helpful directions and local tips. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend and if we are ever back that way would book again.
