My husband and I stayed there this past week after purchasing a deal on Groupon.The grounds were well kept,the room we stayed in #6 was the same room they used for the pic on the website...it was very nice!The co-owner Johann was GREAT and one of the hardest working individuals we ever met(it takes time to warm him up),the food was fresh,the private dinner was wonderfull,the cleaning lady Lupita and the young man that helped us to our room was very nice.But BEWARE of the partner,a woman,not sure of her name...She called us "Loveley coupon people"She tried to cut corners on everything from the wine tasting to the dinnner menu.She treated us like we were second class citizens.I would say....YES it is lovely and I would recomend it,but the new way of doing business in this economy is using sites like Living Social,Groupon etc.& I don't think that woman quite "get's it" so...if you go,know that the breakfast is wonderfull the dinner,the grounds etc.are great,just be prepared to MAYBE be treated less if you go with a coupon.

Room Tip: # 6 was really nice,no spa tub,corner location on the property

The location is nice and not too far from sightseeing around Bodega Bay and wine tasting and touring in Sonoma County's Russian River area and Santa Rosa areas. The breakfast is good with homemade pastries and a fine vegetable souffle and plenty of fresh fruit. Didn't do dinners here as we found plenty of excellent less pricey food elsewhere, not too far away. This is not for business travelers except those on a retreat-- limited and weak internet service in rooms, have to go to lobby to connect absent an air card or other wi-fi device.

I have to start with, what is wrong with people that review this place. I was a little nervous reading some of the negative reviews. This place was spotless, relaxing, beautiful and has a great location. I think some people just like to complain. Yes the owner is not overly friendly, but he is pleasant enough and helpful. His breakfast was probably one of the best we have ever had at a bed and breakfast. He has thought of everything with enough variety to fit to anyone's food taste. We also found this place via Groupon and are so happy we did. It could not have been a better weekend (We also were in room 16 which is a beautiful, spacious, clean room). Would recommend this place to everyone.

My husband and I stayed at the Sonoma Coast Villa and Spa for our honeymoon and we couldn't be happier with our experience! Johannes, the owner and chef was AMAZING! He was helpful, professional, courteous and knowledgable. We bought the "Sonoma Coast Experience Package" for our honeymoon so dinner was included every night. Johannes is an amazing chef - I have never eaten such wonderful food. And, all the food was fresh and organic - the veggies and herbs were picked right from gardens on the property. Included in our package was horseback riding, wine tasting, hot air ballooning and many more adventures. Johannes organized everything and made sure that all of our excursions were perfect for us. We had massages in the spa that were wonderful. Our villa was beautiful, comfortable and clean. The grounds are well maintained and beyond beautiful. The accomidations and service were 5 star! Also, the package was very affordable. We already want to plan our anniversary trip back to the Sonoma Coast Villa and Spa. Everyone MUST go here - such a magical place.

We just returned from two days at this wonderful b and b. It was given to us as a pre-wedding gift from friends who bought it on Living Social. We can't say enough good things about the experience. Our room was wonderful. We loved the fireplace, jetted tubs and large living space. The beds were so comfortable we are now going to try to buy the same mattress. The spa was quiet and relaxing and we enjoyed our treatments. The pool and hot tub areas were clean, quiet and relaxing. Having just stayed at the Sonoma Mission Inn, I would say this place is nicer, quieter and more relaxing. The rooms are larger and the spa is much more private. The grounds are kept beautifully and the food is excellent. The LS deal came with breakfast and wine, which were provided without a hitch. I have stayed at many hotels and b and bs throughout the US and abroad and this is as nice as they come. Bodega and Valley Ford are beautiful areas to explore. We love Rocker Osterfellers for dinner in VF! I highly recommend this establishment and am extremely baffled by any negative reviews. I got the best nights sleep I have had in years in our villa! We will be back. (We were in room #16 and loved it. Warm, cozy, charming!)

Tucked away is a nice villa get away among rolling hills and only 5 miles from the ocean. We bought out two night stay getaway through living social and reserved to celebrate my 44th birthday hoping to have a nice, quiet getaway and reprieve from our 3 teenagers and 3 dogs. We did have just that! The grounds were beautiful, relaxing and peaceful. Our room was clean, simple and relaxing with the fireplace ready for easy lighting with a match. After some contemplation, we decided to try the villa restaurant and we're glad we did! Although the menu was on the pricey side, the food was mouth watering, delectable! I've tried making those portabella mushrooms that were on our plates but cant get it just right as the chef did. The dining facilities were extremely relaxing with a crackling fire roaring when we arrived. Our dining experience was a pleasure with just one other couple there when we arrived. The raters below soon joined after and were treated exceptionally well with the chef joining them for a toast in celebration of their B-days. Our living social getaway was supposed to come with two free glasses of wine which I'm not so sure was taken of our dinner bill (This along with our bill being around $130.00 for two would be our only - remark). The weather was gray and dreary the two days we were there which made for a romantic stay for a husband & wife who needed quiet time alone!

My husband and I travelled with our good friends to Sonoma Coast Villas from DC for our 50th birthdays and Valentine's week. The Chef/Owner, Johannes, and his wife, Ingrid, were both gracious and accomodating. The food was delicious, the resort and grounds were beautiful, the rooms were very comfortable, and the spa was nice and quiet. Although the weather was not cooperating, Johannes was very informative about the wineries, sites, and all types of attractions. He made all of our reservations for the wineries, oyster farm, and limo rides. Originally, we planned on eating at several restaurants for dinner, but changed our minds when we tasted and experienced Johannes's creations. Every dinner was a 3-course meal with full wine service and the food was delicious. We highly recommend this small resort for its beauty, its remote location (away from commercialization and traffic), its accomodations and the food. It looks and feels like an Italian countryside manor.
