Great pre check in communication. Lovely garden, big king sized bed, it's just under an hour's drive to Napa, st Helena or Calistoga if you wish to visit the wineries. About 30 min to sonoma though!

Gay welcomed us and was very helpful and gave us a tour of facilities and details regarding local amenities, restaurants etc. The accommodation was such a nice change from the hotels we had stayed so far on our 3 week trip. It was peaceful and homely. Thank you.

We had a very comfortable stay at the Artists' retreat. Gay was very welcoming, accommodating and generous as a host. The room/studio was private and it was easy to come and go. We were visiting family in Santa Rosa, and the location was perfect for us. There are facilities to make breakfast, but cafes and coffee shops are also very short walk away on 4th street. Our only regret is that we didn't make it to the hot tub during our stay -- it looked inviting, but we didn't have time. Hopefully next visit!

Gay is extremely friendly and welcoming, and the studio apartment very comfortable. The shared garden is very seclude and peaceful. It's ideally situated for downtown Santa Rosa. We had a lovely stay and would definitely recommend this place to others.

We enjoyed our brief stay in Santa Rosa at Gay's place. The accommodations were modest but clean and comfortable. We were excited to try the hot tub but unfortunately did not have time. The location is excellent, right near downtown Santa Rosa in a lovely neighborhood. Gay was very responsive and welcoming. We hope to return in the future for a longer stay!

This was a great place to stay while we were exploring wine country. The nights get cool here but the bed was super soft and the blanket was so cozy!

I could not have picked a better place to stay during my cycling event in Santa Rosa. Gay's backyard is such a wonderful quiet place to relax with a hammock and a hot tub. The cottage itself is well kept with all the amenities you'll need.
