Sonoma House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps up to 6 adults.

Ditch your car keys and discover Real Wine Country on foot or bicycle from our 1889 CHARMING, recently renovated, Victorian Cottage, just 2 SHORT blocks from Sonoma’s Historical Plaza District. As your wine vacation destination, we offer a spacious, historic, & tastefully decorated, 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom home that can accommodate up to 6 adults comfortably. With unmatched charm, personality and modern renovated uniqueness, our home will embrace you with comfort and convenience during your stay. All rooms are bright & colorful--each boasting its own Sonoma contemporary style (see pictures!)

Being native to the Bay Area (and fellow wine lovers), we have been traveling to Sonoma County for many years, using VRBO/Homeaway, encountering some great experiences. It has been a long process, but we finally were able to purchase our first vacation home in the Diamond A area, Western Sonoma. Because we fell in love with Sonoma (again), we also wanted a 'city' property close to Plaza. Better yet, one with history, dating back to all that was happening in Sonoma in the late 19th Century. Now, we want to share it with other travelers seeking all that this area has offer, and hope that you will love it too!

What is not to love about Sonoma, especially right near the Plaza? There are unending things to do and see--wine tasting, eating experiences, historical site-seeing, outdoor adventure and shopping!

BEST RENTAL NEAR THE PLAZA HANDS DOWN!

This was our 4th year of coming to Sonoma, near the Plaza. Without hesitation, I need to say that this property’s charm and décor outmatches the other homes that we have rented within walking distance to the Plaza. I understand it’s fairly new on the rental market, and our experience couldn’t have been more pleasant and enjoyable! The décor was very updated, as was the furniture and general character of the home—very Pottery Barn a la Sonoma! Within a block, there’s Whole Foods, Sonoma Market, a Cycle Shop, and Safeway (just to name a few spots). There’s even a Yoga studio (Community Yoga) on 5th, just a short walk. And that’s not even mentioning the Plaza—so many shops, wine tasting rooms and eateries—we especially liked Harvest Moon and Girl and the Fig (outside patio a must!). Anyway, we felt very comfortable and renting the property was very easy—they even have a keyless (wireless) entry system, providing a code that we choose for gaining access. Both Kathy and Allison were awesome to deal with, and we got our deposit returned very quickly. Can’t say enough about how wonderful a little vacation we had at the Vintage Cottage!

The Vintage Sonoma Cottage was the ideal choice for our mini family reunion and birthday celebration! It was cozy and super comfortable for our party of 6 adults and 2 children. We enjoyed basking in the warm sun on the patio, lingering over breakfast at the large rustic table, taking hot showers in the ultramodern bathrooms, and sleeping like logs in very comfy beds. The house was clean and neat, equipped with everything one would need for cooking (though we preferred taking meals out), and especially perfectly situated for exploring on foot the lovely boutiques, restaurants, and wine-tasting spots in Sonoma. What a luxury to be able to leave our car and enjoy the short walk to the Plaza and surrounding neighborhoods!
Special thanks to owner Kathy and house manager Allison for their excellent communication before and after our rental weekend. All went so smoothly and was so pleasant that we hated to see our weekend come to an end. We hope to return someday and heartily recommend this great house for your next stay in Sonoma!

Lovely CHARMING stay at the Cottage!

We loved every single little detailed aspect of our stay at the Sonoma Vintage Cottage. First of all, it is a very quick walk to the Plaza--you are right there in minutes. You could really get a feel for the historical aspects of the house, which added to the spirit of our stay in exploring Sonoma. We took several walks to the Plaza & had loved all the tasting rooms, especially Enoteca Della Santina (w/ great cheese pairings) & Hawk. Our favorite restaurant was Hot Box Grill & Lasalette. From the booking process to check out, the owner and house manager made it very convenient and easy for our whole group of 5 women celebrating a special 50th. Thanks again--loved it all!!!!!

Perfect Location!

We came to Sonoma with another couple and their adult daughters for a wine-tasting weekend. This house was in THE best location, very clean and comfortable. It was nice to be able to walk just a block to the market or 2 blocks to Sonoma Plaza. The first night, while having a wonderful dinner at Meritage Martini Oyster Bar & Grille (again, just a couple-minute walk away), the power went out in Sonoma. The restaurant staff quickly brought out lots of candles for the diners making our dinner even more memorable! Back at the house, the battery-operated candles came in quite handy. We had one of our best wine-tasting trips with our driver, Rosanna from Swirl 'N Sip Wine Tours. She took us to fabulous wineries, most of which we'd never heard of. Would not hesitate to come back to this home again!

Sonoma Family Gathering

  • Stayed: Feb 2014
Our stay in Sonoma was short, but sweet. Having rented the Victorian Cottage, however, made our family time, quality time! We had 6 adults and 2 small children in the house and had plenty of space for everyone. The house was clean, comfortable, well stocked and super close to the Whole Foods and downtown square. If I could have changed anything, it would have been to request a pack and play (not sure if one was even available, but it was our bad not for asking) and the water temperature might need to get turned down a little. The sink and showers got scalding hot! I would definitely stay here again, and even met the owner on our way out and she was lovely -
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for letting us know what would have made your stay more enjoyable and comfortable. If you have small children that need special equipment, please feel free to let us know prior to your stay so we help to make those arrangements (most guests w/ infants & toddlers bring their own personal items). Regarding the water temperature, we have set our hot water heater at the "mid" range so that there is enough hot water for all (potential) guests (6+) to take showers and baths without running cold. We would suggest that, if you do have small children you are bathing, to check the temperature on their behalf to ensure their comfort. We hope this information is helpful!

Our Victorian-era Cottage is located a quick 2 blocks from the Plaza, the largest 'square' in California. Sonoma Plaza is surrounded by a plethora of historical buildings. The Plaza, which is a National Historic Landmark itself, hosts many community festivals, and serves as the town's focal point. With world-class restaurants, shops, wineries, farmer's markets, and parks, the Plaza is THE central tourist attraction of Sonoma.
