The Sonoma Bungalow is set under the giant oaks of California. This recently remodeled 2 bedroom home is surrounded by nature. Trees are seen from every window. This peaceful retreat is beautifully decorated with art and artifacts from the owners travels around the world. It has hardwood hickory floors covered in oriental carpets, a travertine tile bathroom with views into the trees from bath or shower, skylights, hand-tiled wood burning fireplace, and all new kitchen with cherry cabinets, granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances and gas stove. There is a 32' inch flat-screen TV, Blue Ray DVD player and access to Netflix and Pandora (no cable, just movies for those who want to escape a bit of the real world), and high speed wifi.
There is a queen-size bed in the main bedroom with lush down bedding, and a full size bed in the second bedroom (note: the second bedroom is small and cozy!). The bungalow is located 3 miles from the Sonoma square in a quiet, residential neighborhood with mostly owner occupied homes. The street is filled with old, live oak trees and in the winter a babbling creek flows through the property. During the summer months all you can hear at night is the sound of crickets.
After a day of wine tasting or exploring the Sonoma/Napa Valleys, return to your retreat, park behind the gated entrance and cross the bridge to rest on the hammock under the oaks, relax on the new, expansive redwood deck or dine in the garden under the shade. Perfect for enjoying the beautiful warm Sonoma days and evenings.

With prior approval, we welcome friendly, well-mannered dogs. Please note that the property is not entirely fenced - the front is gated and fenced, so dogs can't wander onto the road, but the sides are somewhat open. My dog happily sits on the deck watching squirrels and doesn't go anywhere! There is also Lucy, the GIANT neighbors dog who comes to say hello. She is VERY friendly towards everyone and dogs too!
Smoking is restricted to outside the bungalow for the consideration of future guests.
