Sonoma House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Take a break from the hustle bustle of everyday living and enjoy a few nights at our relaxing and peaceful vacation home. Villa Serena is located in prestigious 'Mission Highlands' just above the historic Sonoma Plaza. From the moment you begin the drive up High Road you will begin your journey into another world.

This luxury private residence, surrounded by majestic oaks, offers privacy with vistas over the Sonoma valley to Mt. Tamalpais in Marin County. Our home has been recently decorated and outfitted with stylish, yet comfortable furnishings. All rooms have cathedral ceilings, are filled with light and have stunning views of the hills or natural gardens. Relax in the warm, inviting living room with its stone wood-burning fireplace.

Dine in the solarium dining room, on the spacious view deck or around the pool - the choice is yours!!!! The fully equipped kitchen is open to the dining room and offers additional dining options. A large master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, as well as the cozy guest bedroom and bath, have luxurious bedding and linens.

The open den offers additional sleeping for two on the queen sleeper/sofa. The glorious pool, in its lush garden setting, beckons you on warm days and nights.

Once you've experienced a stay at Villa Serena we're certain you'll want to return again and again.

About The Owner

We purchased our Sonoma vacation home in 2009. The minute we walked in and saw the view and experienced the calming effect of the property we knew it was for us. We have spent the past year making improvements, painting, furnishing and turning the house into our 'home away from home'. The town of Sonoma is so close to San Francisco and yet feels like you are in another country. It reminds us of parts of Italy with the rolling hills filled with vineyards. We love Villa Serena and have enjoyed the times we've spent here. We hope you will find the serenity that the name implies.

The Owner purchased this house in 2008

Why The Owner chose Sonoma

It is only minutes from the historic Sonoma Plaza yet it has the feeling of being very secluded. We have been coming to Sonoma for the past 30 years and have stayed in many of the hotel resorts in the area. Now we have our own 'resort' and can come anytime we want.

What makes this house unique

One of the benefits of Villa Serena is it's location in the hills just above the Plaza. It is in an exclusive residential neighborhood with views of the valley. It is very private and the setting feels like you could be in Tuscany. The house has a wonderful flow to it and it is perfect for couples as well as a get-away for friends.

Guestbook comments from the owner

As proud owners of Villa Serena we would like to share with you the beautiful, heartfelt testimonials from our many guests from all over the world who have written in our guestbook about their stay in our magical retreat. Enjoy!



“Our five day stay at Villa Serena was surreal! Indeed, it was more beautiful than any of the photos we had seen online! Being able to dine on the deck with candlelight, enjoying tranquility, wine, and gazing at the stars was the perfect end to each day.” - Tami

Amazing Girl's Weekend

  • 5 of 5

I have been to Sonoma many times but the views from Villa Serena were truly amazing and set the tone for a relaxing girls weekend! The home is beautiful and very spacious. It went above and beyond all of our expectations! Even though we had rain on Friday (yes we needed it), sitting around the dining room table watching the rain couldn't have been more perfect and cozy! Hope to return soon!

Lovely Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This home is absolutely beautiful! It was perfect for our girls' trip to Sonoma with plenty of space and gorgeous views. It went above and beyond our expectations! A very comfortable stay and the house was stocked with everything you could ever need. Close enough to Sonoma Square with lots to do, but far enough in the hills that it was very peaceful. Hope to return soon!

A retreat in God's land

  • 5 of 5

Villa Serena is nested high in the hills with panoramic views all around. The home is elegant in it's simplicity and tastefully decorated in colors that bring the Sonoma valley right inside. It was the perfect retreat setting for a romantic weekend of fine dining out just five minutes away and replenishing by the poolside drinking champagne. I will return again and again!

Misleading location

  • 3 of 5

I have been renting from V.R.B.O. for over 15 years and this is the first time that the owner has misrepresented the convenience of the location to me. The house itself is your average V.R.B.O. rental home that is obviously loved by it's owners , however , when I spoke with the owner to confirm that it's location was near where we needed it to be , she said that it was 15 to 20 minutes away .It is actually 30 to 40 minutes away ( which is a big deal if you are going back and forth several times a day ). When we arrived at the house and realized that it wouldn't work for us I called the owner immediately and let her know that we wouldn't be staying there. Unfortunately I then had to spend several thousand dollars on hotels that were more conveniently located. I am hoping that the owner will refund me the thousands of dollars that I spent reserving her property based upon her location claims.

Owner's Response: We are very sorry that our guest didn’t find our home as conveniently located to the Horse Park in Sonoma as she would have liked. Goggle Maps and MapQuest, which are available online, show that the driving time is approximately 28 minutes from Villa Serena. We drive past it on our way to our home in San Francisco and it takes 20 to 25 minutes depending on traffic. We have learned from the many testimonials by our guests from all over the world, that they have had extraordinary, memorable and transformative experiences on our property. We only wish that this guest, before she left, had taken the time to enjoy the serenity of Villa Serena as so many of our other guests have.

Beautiful Home

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed this beautiful home along with the beautiful view off the back deck. The deck was so lovely with some many different areas to relax. The home had everything we needed to make our stay very enjoyable.
