We really appreciated how both Courtney and Aaron were so helpful...coming to the house. Helping with pool directions, printing boarding passes...all of it. The house worked out great for all ten of us... the kitchen was wonderful...and seeing as how none of us have a pool, that was a treat...would definitely come back here...a great find. Thanks again!

Our family celebrated some significant milestones at Courtenay’s place in Sonoma and the place was amazing. The attention to detail, responsiveness to the limited questions we had was great and the amenities were outstanding - especially the kitchen, pool, hot tub and fire pit. The location was perfect for a quick trip into downtown Sonoma of across wine country. We will be back and can’t wait!

The absolute perfect gathering place for a group of former college girlfriends! The online pictures of the house are gorgeous and, believe it or not, don't even do the reality of the house justice. It is that nice. So spacious, so clean, so comfortable! The jacuzzi and fire pit were a hit on the cool evenings and the kitchen had all the amenities you could hope for. Courtenay was a pleasure to work with too. She greeted us at the house when we arrived to give a tour and was promptly available via text when we had questions throughout our stay. I can't say enough good things about our experience and highly recommend that you enjoy it too!

Beach Bunch goes to Sonoma

We call ourselves the Beach Bunch, we are a group of friends that have gone to the beach together every Labor Day for the last 12 years. We decided to go to Napa instead this year. We had a fabulous time. Courtenay is a super gracious host. She met us at the house and gave us a tour and showed us where everything was and how to contact her if we need anything. The house was clean and layout was perfect. We would wine tour during the day and come back to a beautiful house with a pool and firepit in the evening. Very relaxing. Thank you Courtenay and Aaron!

Courtenay was the most gracious host to our group of ladies! The house is beautiful and perfectly located. The pool was just the right temperature with a spot for an umbrella when the sun became too hot. The fire pit was perfect for relaxing at the end of a day on our feet. The kitchen was from my dreams and perfect for our group of 8 girls. The beds were so comfortable, girls mentioned wanting the exact pillows for their homes. We will definitely be back! Thank you for sharing your gorgeous home with us!

Comfortable, spacious, cozy and relaxing home. Celebrated my daughter's birthday with a few of her friends. Enjoyed wine tasting followed by a swim, BBQ and sitting around the fire pit. Highly recommend this property!

I can not say enough great things about this rental and Courtenay! I would recommend this home to everyone. It is gorgeous, super clean and completely stocked with everything you can imagine and will ever need. We cooked dinner 3/4 nights we stayed there. The kitchen was fully stocked with every appliance, herb/spice, pot and pan you can imagine and everything was in top condition. The house has so much space as well as a pool house in the back with kitchen, bathroom, living room, tv, etc. Pool was fantastic and clean. The location is perfect as it is no more than five minutes in every direction to the Sonoma center, shopping and markets. Courtenay met us when we arrived and gave us the run down of the house and texted throughout our stay to make sure everything was perfect. She knows how to be a host and what people want and need when they are looking for a vacation rental. There is not one thing to complain about. Thank you Courtenay for making our first trip to Sonoma amazing! We will be back!

My family had a great reunion at this house. There was plenty of room for everyone to spread out and the pool was a big hit with the kids. Courtenay is a very responsive host and the house was very well stocked with all the amenities. We wish we could have stayed longer.

The owners were very helpful before and during our stay. We traveled from the east coast with infants and Courtenay made everything so easy. The house was like a resort with lots of space and was very kid- friendly. The property is close-by to wineries, downtown, train town ... everything you could want for a vacation. The pool, putting green, and spa were great amenities. The kitchens and bathrooms were stocked with staples. High-end appliances, comfortable beds, and nice linens. The house was clean and uncluttered. We had a first class experience.

If I could rate this house 10 stars I would. Courtenay was very responsive which was part of the reason I booked with her so quickly vs waiting to hear back on other options, but then I was truly wowed by the house. We had a great stay. Adults loved the fire pit and pool house, and the kids loved kid room and loft. Perfect fit for everyone.

We had the most wonderful stay at Courtenay's home. We had 4 little families staying at this place all together for a big wedding weekend and it was perfect for us. We found that there was plenty of room for all of us to spread out and enough room for all of us to sleep. The pool and hot tub were a blast, it was hard to pull the kiddos away. It was also really lovely because the cover was so easy to use so we could close it when the kiddos were done and not worry about any accidents. The kitchen had everything we needed including spices/condiments/equipment for all our cooking and prepping. The laundry was essential for this group and Courtenay had the home stocked with what we needed. Like many others have noted, Courtenay was a fantastic host! She even brought by fresh strawberries from the farmers market for us one day and was excellent at responding when we had any questions during our stay and all the questions I had leading up to our stay and she always answered in a timely manner. She truly made our trip a success!

Our party of four couples rented this wonderful home for the week of July 4. We tend to spend most of our time in Napa and were worried that the extra few miles to stay in Sonoma would be a pain, but it wasn't. It is hard to imagine finding a home that was a better fit for us. First of all, Courtenay was great. She met us at the home and gave us a tour and then left us to enjoy a wonderful five days. The house was very clean and tidy. The kitchen was well stocked with all kinds of necessities (pots, pans, sugar, oil, seasonings). She even put some wine and beer in the fridge for us. The home was perfectly set up for the four couples. In fact, a fifth couple could have used the sofa bed and bathroom in the pool house, which is separated from the house but just past the pool. Each bedroom had a bathroom. Although only two have en suite bathrooms, the others are very close to a separate bathroom and the house is so spread out that each couple has plenty of space and privacy. The upstairs bedroom was very large, as was the main floor master. The other two bedrooms in the house were on the first floor and although a little smaller, they certainly were not small and were nicely appointed. We spent most of our time in the very large kitchen and dining area, or in the pool area. The pool was great, with a hot tub attached. We also enjoyed the very large fire pit in the evenings. We grilled out two nights and Courtenay was thoughtful enough to leave a second gas tank. We had heard that Sonoma does have some pretty strict quiet hours (10 p.m.). The fire pit must be off at that time. We were all coming from the east coast so that wasn't a problem for us. The pool house is a great entertaining space, with a separate kitchen area. The home has plenty of fridge space (multiple units) for a large group. We did not have any children with us, but the home is set up such that there is a play/game area for kids. Each morning we walked down the street while enjoying our coffee. (home has a coffee grinder as well). We also used the home's bicycles to jump on the bike path which is super close and takes you into the Sonoma Plaza area. It was just over a mile to get there. It's really hard to find anything to criticize. Two couples mentioned low water pressure in their shower, but it was not a problem. The large palm trees in the front yard are amazing and there is a nest of owls in one. Don't pass this home up!
