Guest Access

The house has wireless internet, washer and dryer, an electric fireplace, and a large plasma screen TV. Set in the middle of wine country, you have access to some of the best wineries Sonoma has to offer and you are just 25 minutes from the ocean.

Interaction with Guests

Richard and I live right next door, so if there are any issues we are available to immediately address them, but the house is removed enough that if you prefer, you will not even know we are here.

The Neighborhood

The neighborhood is very quiet, with many part-time owners. The creek adds charm and we are surrounded by redwoods.

A wonderful relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

What an absolutely wonderful place. My wife and I decided to take some time away from the madness of San Francisco and spend a few days in the redwoods. We could not have asked for a better location. The house was conveniently located for day excursions and well appointed for when we wanted to just stay in and veg. The bed was so comfortable, we overslept every day. The house has an amazing kitchen, much nicer than the one we have in our place and the back deck was a great place to kick back or have coffee in the morning. Richard and Bryan were so accommodating. They met us when we drove in and gave us a tour of the place. You can tell that they take great care and pride in their rental. We will definitely be back again.

Serenity, it cannot be contrived.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have had many wonderful experiences over the years, with various vacation rentals. This place was a cut above anything else. It was a total package. Well appointed furnishing and such. Beautiful surroundings. Comfortableness abounds in this home. But what sets it apart is the deep commitment that Richard and Bryan have made to creating a home, not a rental. These two make the difference, in so many ways.

We had some difficulties in the Air B & B that we had reserved for 2 weeks, the water was shut off for whatever reason we will never know. I had met Richard earlier that week on a walk as he was tending his lovely gardens. in a bit of a panic I knocked on his door and asked if we could rent his place. Within an hour they had saved what could have been a very bad visit with our daughters. Peace and serenity, that's the ticket.

Hidden gem and perfect getaway.

  • 5 of 5

What can I say about this place. Richard and Bryan have gone above and beyond anyplace we have stayed before. The furnishings are just gorgeous and the yard is amazing. We were greeted by our hosts and treated to a bottle of wine, breakfast treats and the yummiest chocolate banana nut bread we have ever tasted. The beds were so comfortable and the house is so quiet, we slept in every morning. Then we had coffee on the expansive deck which has a comfortable hot tub, which we definitely took advantage of. It was so relaxing to be in the tub and look out over the babbling creek. The kitchen absolutely blew us away with its Viking stove and ample counter space. We just can not say enough about how much we enjoyed ourselves. Although the house is strategically located to be within proximity of many activities, we were so comfortable we hardly left. We can't wait till our next stay. Thank you Bryan and Richard!!!!

Charming Times Three!

  • 5 of 5

Three Times a Charm is charming times three - a tranquil setting, exquisite yet comfortably adorned home, and gracious owners. This is my fourth stay in Richard and Bryan's homes; I qualify them as homes, not houses, because you feel like you are at home (only much nicer)! My sister and I stayed twice at their Side-by-Side - which is absolutely wonderful; and now twice at Three Times a Charm. Three Times a Charm has a large redwood deck which overlooks the creek and redwood forested backdrop of the rear yard. We always intend to spend a day playing tourist, but the house and scenery are so peaceful and relaxing that we never leave the property! You have your choice of a large eat-in kitchen (which can accommodate multiple chefs) and/or a barbeque grill and dining on the deck. Cozy reading spaces, fireside cocktail hour, great outdoor spaces. I like that the front is enclosed by wrought iron fencing and gates. You can see everything around you, but the extra privacy and security makes it an even more comfortable stay. We keep coming back because it is close to our home, but feels a million miles away. We leave there feeling fulfilled, relaxed and indulged. Thank you Richard and Bryan for creating these great retreats!
