Sonoma House Rental Photos and Description
House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)
This house was completed in 2005 and is situated in the heart of the Carneros Region of the Sonoma Valley. The home is 3,500 square feet, with an expansive back patio and front porch. This is our family home that we rent out while we are on vacation, so it has all the bells and whistles. It is on one of the more popular bike routes and is walking distance to a local winery. There are a handful of wineries just minutes away and the town of Sonoma is just three miles away. The city of Napa, another popular wine country destination is just 15 minutes away. The home is situated on a quiet road surrounded by vineyards, and other small family farms. It is a two and a half acre lot, with no homes close by. Our neighbors include horses, sheep, cows and goats. We also have horses,sheep,chickens and llamas. Yes, the roosters do crow in the morning, so we will provide ear plugs. Our home offers a unique country experience, while you enjoy all the wine country has to offer. We have organic flower gardens, vegetable gardens, and an organic orchard. Our chickens are free range and lay delicious eggs. Our guests are welcome to help themselves to the flowers, eggs, veggies, herbs, and fruit. You could prepare a feast without leaving the house. We have children ourselves, so our home is very kid friendly. We also have outdoor dog runs and you could even bring your horses.
Dana from Corte Madera writes 'What a great house! We stayed here with our daughter who loved the horses, swing set, collecting eggs for breakfast, and picking herbs too. It is a quick drive to the square, Napa, and local wineries. We took a beautiful morning walk along the vineyards -- a very peaceful place. We look forward to staying here again!'
Lynn from Groveland California writes' This home is a ranchette just outside of town and provides a bit of the farm experience. This home is beautiful, spacious and very well decorated. Perfectly located and convenient to a really neat area of California. We are planning to come back next year.'
Please see Sonoma Valley Visitors Center for local events. Also, Homewood Winery and Fremont Diner are within walking distance.

About The Owner
My husband Rich is a retired police officer, our daughter is 11 years old and very involved in 4-H, and I am an elementary school teacher. We moved to Sonoma 12 years ago to be closer to family. We love the area and the people. There is never a dull moment and we are very close to San Francisco if you want something more. We enjoy our animals and gardens, and grow /produce a large portion of what we eat.
The Owner purchased this house in 2005
Why The Owner chose Sonoma
We decided to start renting our house out during the summer, because I am off and we travel a lot. We camp often, and also do home exchanges and enjoy seeing different parts of the world.
What makes this house unique
The peace and quiet. We are off the beaten path, so we get very little traffic. It is a great place to unwind and relax. This home really lends itself to indoor/outdoor living. Picking broccoli one minute and eating it ten minutes later is pretty cool. People say our eggs are the best they have ever had. We walk, ride our horses and bikes all around the neighborhood. It is very calming here. It is well located for trips to both Napa (fifteen minutes) and Sonoma (ten minutes).We are fortunate to be about a quarter of a mile, a short walk, away from Fremont Diner, Carneros Brewery and Homewood Winery.
