We had a wonderful exchange at this home.
The house itself is spectacular, with lovely grounds and a fabulous swimming pool. It feels like a secret garden in Tuscany.
Mary Rose, who is super nice, came up to show us around and we felt totally welcome. The house is well appointed and comfortable. We spent more time lounging around the house – dining in the garden, swimming in the pool – than we had initially planned, since it was so pleasant.
We also loved Sonoma and actually preferred it to Napa, where we’d been before. We had early morning fog but sunny by late morning, so perfect weather.
The surrounding area has wonderful wineries – with a range of tasting possibilities – excellent restaurants, and great hiking. We particularly recommend the Jack London, Annadel, and the Mt. Saint Helena Parks. My son and I also really enjoyed the tour with Sonoma Segway, way more fun than I’d imagined. Hunt, the owner, is a gem.
On the other end, Mary Rose and her lovely family left our home in perfect order and were gracious in every way. We enthusiastically recommend exchanging with Mary Rose.
