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.

Happenings at the farm:

January- Lambs are born. The garden has broccoli, chard, and kale.

April- Spring garden goes in. Lettuce and peas in the garden. Hens begin to lay large quantities.Heritage turkey poults arrive.

May- Turkeys leave the barn to their outdoor digs. Early crops begin to mature.

June- Squash, lettuce, beans, basil, and herbs are ready to harvest.

July- Early tomatoes, beans, beets, celery, carrots, potatoes are ready to harvest. Hens continue to lay. The Sonoma home town 4th of July parade is adorable and entertaining.

August- Garden is pumping veggies and herbs- corn and eggplant are finally ready. Fruit is producing as well.

September- Hertige turkeys are lovely with their large tail feathers and silly antics. Garden continues to flourish.

October- Lovely fall colors grace the vineyards and orchards. The summer garden wanes and the winter garden goes in. The weather is usually fabulous and the valley is ablaze with color.

November- Fall colors continue and the hens slow down. Persimons, pomegranates, and apples are still waiting to be picked.

December-Hens take a break, vine shed their leaves, and everything rests, waiting to begin the cycle again.

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.

Fabulous home, great location, and very helpful owners!!

  • 5 of 5
We had a family reunion to celebrate my dad's 70th birthday. The farmhouse was everything we could have hoped for ... and more. Our (urban!) kids enjoyed being around the animals, the fresh fruit and vegetables from the garden, and especially the freshly laid eggs. The home is beautifully decorated and includes all kinds of amenities. One evening we enjoyed the hot tub. The next we fired up the awesome BBQ and lit a roaring bonfire in the pit. Best part was that the farmhouse is within minutes of downtown Sonoma (for groceries, etc.) and so many excellent local wineries. Napa was just 20 minutes away. Memorable weekend, and we hope to be back!

What a great place to rest and relax after days filled with wedding festivities….
Eileen and Rich, I want to thank you for opening your beautiful home to my family for a most restful place to end our most enjoyable days. We started each day with my granddaughter needing to go say good morning to the chickens, sheep, horses and turkeys; then we enjoyed breakfast from the eggs that had been gathered that morning. We also used fresh tomatoes and garlic picked from the garden with some of the other meals. Your house is open and very comfortable. We were able to relax in the hot tub and enjoyed sitting under the arbor enjoying the scenery; it also made a great place to end the day sipping wine. The kids and many of the adults also become involve of a little competive table tennis competition. The beds were very comfortable and allowed for a great night’s sleep. We were only a short ride to Sonoma Square where there are wonderful restaurants, bars and shopping. Pharo Pharms will be the first place we look for future family trips back to Sonoma.....What an absoultely wonderful place to stay.
Thank you again for sharing your home.

Wedding Weekend

  • 5 of 5
My family and friends were up in Sonoma this August for a long weekend wedding and enjoyed a taste (literally!) of farm living at this spacious and well-appointed house. We cooked up fresh eggs that were graciously left on our porch every day and bbq'd just picked squash, tomatoes, onions and herbs - delicious! The goats, lambs, horses and chickens were a fun novelty to us city folks and the authentic Western-themed pieces throughout the house certainly added to the warm ambiance of this family home. Loved the leather furniture in the living room! The house is in a very convenient location within minutes of the Sonoma plaza and the wineries along the Carneros Highway. Thank you, Eileen, for making this event-filled weekend even more fun and relaxing with our stay at your home.

We had the most wonderful time at the Pharo Family Farm, it is an authentic Western home which we highly recommend for groups wanting a true Northern California experience. The spacious home is spotless, very comfortable and filled with thoughtful touches like warm lap blankets, comfy pillows, luxury soaps, gourmet coffee and a refrigerator filled with their own farm fresh eggs! There was something for everyone: animals and plenty of play areas to delight the kiddies, fire pit, fountain, grill, hot tub and beautiful scenery to enjoy as you sip a glass of wine or enjoy a group meal under the wisteria awning. We were a group of extended family attending a wedding, Pharo Farms was the perfect setting for us. We will be back! Thank you Eileen and Rich!

Wonderful place to stay in Sonoma! All you Napa to Sonoma Half Marathoners, take note!

  • 5 of 5
My husband, 3 friends, my daughter and her husband, along with our two grandkids, a two-year old boy and a four-year old girl stayed at Pharo Pharms and we had a wonderful time. Our grandchildren loved all the animals and Eileen was so patient - letting them feed the chickens, horses, sheep and llamas. And they gathered eggs twice a day. The black cat, Inky, followed the grandkids everywhere, playing with them and being so sweet. We used herbs and squash (the only vegetable in at the time) from the garden everyday. The hens laid about 20 eggs each day and we managed to eat them all! We came from Houston to run the Napa to Sonoma Half Marathon and found this location ideal. The house is located right on the route between miles 7 and 8 and lots of our group stopped in to use the facilities during the run. Other supporters with us just stepped out the door to cheer us on. We hosted a breakfast of fresh eggs for 18 runners on the Saturday before the run and we sat outside under the arbor and on the patio enjoying the cool weather and sunshine. Our grandkids brought small bikes to ride and spent hours on the terrace riding and playing in the fountain. We used the hot tub a couple of times, but the pool was too cold for us Texans! Homewood Winery is just .4 mile around the corner - easy to walk to - with free tastings and friendly folks. Eileen and Rich were around if we needed them. This is truly their own home, with lots of Eileen's collections around and beautiful antiques. We used the gas grill a couple of times and went into Napa and to St. Helena (Cindi's Place) to eat. I prefer Sonoma's town square to Napa's - it seems more authentic to me - so we spent several hours there, too.
Pharo Pharms is a great place to call your home-away-from-home for any length of time. We loved it!

We had a the best time

  • 5 of 5
My wife and stayed at your home recently with some of our friends. We had the best time. Your house has plenty of room. It’s eloquent and comfortable. We also had fun collecting eggs from the chickens and walking along the vineyards. The weather was great and there was plenty to do and see. It was hard to leave and go home.
