This was our 4th year of coming to Sonoma, near the Plaza. Without hesitation, I need to say that this property’s charm and décor outmatches the other homes that we have rented within walking distance to the Plaza. I understand it’s fairly new on the rental market, and our experience couldn’t have been more pleasant and enjoyable! The décor was very updated, as was the furniture and general character of the home—very Pottery Barn a la Sonoma! Within a block, there’s Whole Foods, Sonoma Market, a Cycle Shop, and Safeway (just to name a few spots). There’s even a Yoga studio (Community Yoga) on 5th, just a short walk. And that’s not even mentioning the Plaza—so many shops, wine tasting rooms and eateries—we especially liked Harvest Moon and Girl and the Fig (outside patio a must!). Anyway, we felt very comfortable and renting the property was very easy—they even have a keyless (wireless) entry system, providing a code that we choose for gaining access. Both Kathy and Allison were awesome to deal with, and we got our deposit returned very quickly. Can’t say enough about how wonderful a little vacation we had at the Vintage Cottage!
