We love the wine country and Sonoma in particular. Our Sonoma home provides us with the life we enjoy when we are not at home in Milwaukee.
The Owner purchased this house in 2006
We love Sonoma, wine, and living and the San Francisco Bay area.
Relax and enjoy the good life while being close to everything if you ever want to leave the property.
Hi Peg & Sandy,
I wanted to send a quick note and thank you for letting us rent your home in Sonoma. It is beautiful and we enjoyed every minute of our stay! The property is truly spectacular and we will definitely be back!
Thank you again for your hospitality.
What a wonderful house in a great location!! Equipped with all we need and the stunning views made the week a blast. The outside pool area and fireplace were used alot along with the hot tub. The deck on the upper level was used alot for dinner, overlooking the pool and views were nice while enjoying wine during dinner. It was hard to leave, luckily it rained just the one morning of our departure. So it made it just a little easier. The deer in the backyard were neat to watch and the cows and one billy goat next door were a riot. We needed two more days there to get done all we wanted but what a great place... If I have my way we'll be back very soon :-) Erika Howard; Rochester, NY
Friends stayed to celebrate a recent wedding and a milestone birthday. Our first impression continued each time we entered a room, turned a corner, woke each morning...WOW! Thanks for thinking and anticipating the needs of the guest! From extra bedding to the abundance of cooking spices to the multiply seating options, it was all included. It was not actually walking distance to the market, but certainly close enough to make a Starbucks run for the addict in our party! Please note that the driveway incline is TOO STEEP for a limo to drop at the door. Ask them to pull halfway up and then take your luggage to the bottom of the steps. We could not get the outside grill by the pool to work even with the instructions in the very detailed book! Later we were informed that it did not actually work and used the Weber grill on the rear deck which worked perfectly! It was great that the items left by other visitors were left for us and we in turn left items to be shared (sealed of course!). The arbor lighting switch is actually not in a black box, but in a gray box on the fence that faces the pasture! We discovered that best thing was to eat outside and enjoy the views! However, the bees were in abundance!! Not to sting, but to steal our food! The traps helped but there were still plenty to go around! Please note that this is not suitable for handicapped individuals or those who cannot climb stairs or get winded easily! A perfect location for visiting wineries and enjoying Sonoma.
We plan to return!
We were four couples coming in to have a long weekend reunion. We decided to splurge and rent this beautiful house, and we are so glad that we did. Everyone had a comfortable bedroom and bath situation, but we spent almost no time in those rooms. This is a house for outdoor living, and we proved it. There were at least 7 outdoor tables and chair sets in various places around the property, and we ate or lounged at a different table every meal, and we still didn't get to them all. The pool and spa were great - even though it was early in the year, we had really warm weather, so we enjoyed them both. The house is beautifully furnished, has everything you would need in the kitchen, and is set on a hillside with no other houses very near. While we drank coffee one morning, we saw deer, goats and even a few cows grazing up the hillside next to the property. The landscaping is incredibly lush, with a small grape arbor, several avocado trees, a rose garden, an herb garden, cascades of rosemary falling over the wall near the parking area, etc. The sound system allowed us to play our music through the outside speakers, and even though the house rules prohibited playing the music loudly enough that we would disturb the neighbors, we found that it wasn't a problem. We simply kept the music at a volume consistent with carrying on conversations, and it was fine. The location, too, was terrific. The historic center of Sonoma is very charming, and we did the Overlook Trail hike, which was wonderful. We used our location in Sonoma as a base to explore Healdsburg, Napa and St. Helena, as well as other places. We would love to return here again sometime with our whole family - our adult daughters would really love this place. AND, our security deposit was returned within the week! I can't recommend it highly enough.
We stayed with one other couple in early June of 2012. This property absolutely exceeded our expectations! We've never been to wine country, and we just booked again for next year due to the ideal location and the exceptional amenities. The pool is AMAZING - reminds us of Italy and is so private, yet so close to Sonoma! Great spot for multiple couples. Great kitchen - everything you need and then some. Did I mention the pool area?? FABULOUS!! I highly recommend this property!!!
Great location, isolated yet still close to town. Loved the property, and the house. Wonderful time around the pool and pool deck. Desert one night by the outdoor fireplace. Loved the multiple spaces in and around the house, for reading, sunning, wine, conversation.
There are so many wonderful things to say about this property, the first being that the pictures do not accurately represent how incredible the outdoor space truly is!
It's completely secluded, private and beautiful. The pool is fantastic with a great inner bench that surrounds the perimeter. The spa is lovely and comfortable, nestled right in the middle of the arbor. The arbor is beautiful with plenty of places to lounge about including an outdoor fireplace. The outdoor grill is perfect for poolside cooking. There's a mini vineyard with a dining table - perfect for a little moment of magic! More cozy lounge chairs sit beneath a cozy awning overlooking the pool. The upper balcony has another place to dine with great views of the hills. There's a little garden in the back of the property - with more dining and a fountain! Even more, there's honeysuckles, an avocado tree, and lots of little birds flying and chirping about.
The kitchen is stocked, the bedrooms are really comfortable and the seemingly endless number of places to dine throughout the property made finding our next place to eat such a treat.
I absolutely recommend this home, especially during the warm season to truly take advantage of the gorgeous outdoor space.
