This place was a perfect choice. My husband and I stayed here last week and we couldn't have asked for a better place to spend our Sonoma vacation. The house and location are amazing - beautiful backyard and view, great space, cozy feel, close to downtown Sonoma. Immediately we felt right at home here. The house had everything we needed for a wonderful and romantic vacation. It was just the two of us, but we could have easily had two more people with us and still felt like there was plenty of room. Before I go on a lengthy review, below are just a few of the advantages of staying here:
- Close proximity to downtown Sonoma (in my opinion, one of the best downtown areas in the greater Napa/Sonoma area).
- AMAZING view. Morning coffee looking out onto a bocce court, beautiful gardens, vineyards and mountains was just about as picturesque as you can get.
- Great accommodations with everything you need in a house.
- Location in general was perfect for traveling throughout the Sonoma/Napa area.
We spent most of our days driving around the Napa/Sonoma area winetasting and made it home by about 6pm each night. This worked out perfectly because we could enjoy some delicious wine and make dinner in the comfort of "our own home". I honestly can't imagine staying in a hotel considering how easy and convenient it was having a whole house at our disposal. The house's location itself is great too. The views (as mentioned) are incredible...vineyards, greenery, mountains...amazing. And less than 2 miles from downtown Sonoma you can't beat the convenience. We didn't walk to downtown much because we were often driving around but it is definitely a doable walk. After visiting many of the Napa/Sonoma areas I will say that Sonoma is my favorite downtown area of all. So comfortable and quaint, and it has a wide array of restaurants, shops, wineries and bars. The Sonoma Marketplace is a great place to stop for groceries - fresh bread, huge cheese selection, nice meat/seafood department and a decent local wine selection. As much as we loved the restaurants downtown, it made our trip being able to stop by and pick up the perfect wine-pairing food for dinner back at the house. Lastly, but definitely not least, Julie is great. Because everything went smoothly we really didn't need to reach out to Julie much. But she made sure to check in with us via email the first day to make sure we had what we needed and couldn't have been nicer! Overall, definitely a 5/5.
