“Beautiful, quiet, relaxing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

My adult daughter and I spent 2 nights in the cozy Casita Alec. On approach I thought I might have made a mistake in reserving this place because the neighborhood, while not threatening, didn't seem to merit the price we were paying for the room. However, when we turned into the driveway, I knew we'd be happy with our choice. Cena greeted us on arrival; cheerful, fresh fragrant flowers on the "kitchen" table. We loved the heated cement floors that warmed us when it was cool, windy and raining. Cena's husband was kind enough to lay a fire for us, and the ambiance was perfect for conversation, wine and cheese in the late afternoon and early evening.

Sleeping accommodations were 1 king bed and 1 large down sofa. Both were very comfortable and worked well for us. I did miss having a down comforter. There was a small fridge for stashing our cheese and fruit during the day and for keeping water cold. I would have liked to have ice and a kitchen sink, but those are small things.

The location was central - close to town, restaurants and shopping. Perfect for a mother/daughter (or any) mid-week escape. There's a large dog that roams the property freely. He has a very intimidating bark, but is really a pussycat. Don't let references to him put you off.

Thank you Barbara,
So sorry about the comforter , but it was being cleaned. of all times with the coldest week we we had, my apologies . We plan on putting in a sink in that room, the fittings are in place but we put the new patio down instead. So much to do. The pool is next.

“Romantic Honeymoon Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

My husband and I spent four gloriously peaceful, private and romantic days and nights in the three room casita on this lovely private residential property. Our hosts, Roger and Cena, were very welcoming and we are happy to have had the pleasure of meeting them. They even treated us to a champagne toast in their own home. We also enjoyed spending time with their friendly dog, Poochini, and two cats, Mona Lisa and Michelangelo. The environment was perfect: beautiful architecture, landscape and outdoor patio areas (which we put to good use for breakfast each day and grilling out one night). The indoor fireplace also added to the romance of the honeymoon experience. I can not say enough about the relaxed beauty of this place! It was everything we hoped it would be. Thank you, Cena and Roger. We'll be back!

“Amazing weekend!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We loved this little piece of Sonoma heaven! I can't imagine a nicer place to stay or a lovelier weekend. We love the grounds and sleeping with the doors open. It was also so soothing to play with Poochini since we were missing our dogs. He came inside to visit and was a sweetheart! We highly recommend staying at this location!

“I can't imagine a better place to stay in Sonoma”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

The apartment and grounds were stunning and it is a very short drive to town. The owners were very friendly and made us feel at home.
