RETRO RETREAT: COZY, MODERNE, AFFORDABLE HOUSE IN WINE COUNTRY.

Sonoma House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Retro Retreat: Cozy, Moderne, Affordable House in Wine Country.

3 bdrm, 2.5 bath for the price of 2 bdrm 1 bath rental!! We are new, so we are offer low prices. Not sure how long these prices will last......

The Retro Retreat is a fabulous little house built in 1951 and recently updated for comfort and convenience with central heat and A/C. It is centrally located in a very quiet neighborhood just north of the town of Sonoma, with easy access to highway 12. We have an updated kitchen with new cabinets, appliances and granite counter tops.

The main living room, kitchen and dining area is open, providing an extra large space for entertaining and relaxing with family and friends. A great space for celebrating holidays, birthdays, anniversaries, or just long weekends! One entire wall of the living room, dinning and kitchen area is glass, looking out on a covered patio and large back yard. The floor plan is ideal for two couples or a family. Two bedrooms, a full and half bath are in one wing of the house, another bedroom and full bath are in the other. The living room, dining area and kitchen are in the center of the house, providing complete privacy between the two wings.

The Retro Retreat is just minutes from the Sonoma Plaza (2.4 miles) for shopping and dining experiences, and within walking distance of the world famous Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa. In just a few minutes, heading North on highway 12, you will visit dozens of the best wineries California has to offer.

If you want to stay in after a day of wine tasting, dinner is a snap with provisions from Whole Foods or Sonoma Market. In addition to the new kitchen, there is a BBQ, dining table, chairs and lounge seating on the covered patio. Plus, staying at the Retro Retreat is a great way to save your $$, so you can splurge all that much more on Sonoma’s fine wines and dinning.

When you book with us, let us know if you like red or white, so we can greet you with a bottle of one of our favorite Sonoma wines.

Josette and Dave have lived in the Sonoma Valley for 12 years. While living in San Francisco, we often spent long weekends in the Sonoma Wine Country, so we decided to move here to enjoy the warm sun and the outdoors, away from the city traffic and noise.

GOOD STAY IN SONOMA

  • 4 of 5
Thank you for such a smooth experience into your home. Very easy to find, easy to get the keys, and no issues with the owners. I think the rate is good for the time of year and having others split it. The home is cute and the backyard is awesome and those stars are night are so bright!! Love the bottle of wine they left and tons of cooking items to help!
i will say I was shocked to find for 4 days only 1 travel size shampoo and conditioner in our bathroom for 2 ladies to share but there was a big bottle of body soap.
The bed had two very flat pillows but I found 1 in a spare closet which was much better. Driving in, you first pass a trailer park and then get to Aguas Calientes area which seems a bit run down and older. Overall, we felt safe but just didn't look the best compared to all the other areas.
It was great to have a a place to call home on our trip. Thank you!

Owner's Response: We appreciate all reviews and are always looking to improve our guests stay. We have made a number of improvements and have added items for the use of our guests over the 2 and half years we have been renting out our vacation rental.

Most guests bring their own shampoo and conditioner, as they usually have a strong preference on brand, etc. We always have a large supply of travel size shampoo and conditioner and small soaps in the half bath/laundry room closet. We have added this to our information binder, in hope that future guests don't miss finding items they need.

We do offer extra pillows of different types, since we know guests have a range of preference, and we just added 2 new fluffier pillows. We ourselves each like different pillows; one likes flat pillows, while the other likes more fluffy pillows.

Our vacation rental is actually in Boyes Hot Springs, between Sonoma and Aqua Caliente. Resorts in Boyes Hot Springs and surrounding communities were popular health retreats for tourists from San Francisco and elsewhere until the middle of the 20th century because of the geothermic hot springs. The Sonoma Mission Inn is a luxury resort located in Boyes Hot Springs and is still a popular resort and spa. Most of the homes in the area were built between 1905 and 1970, with a few newer one mixed in. Our vacation rental house was built in 1951. The neighborhood is not a planned suburb with cookie cutter houses. Many of the homes built before 1950 were small vacation homes for families in the San Francisco Bay Area. We live just a few blocks from the vacation rental, in the same neighborhood, and often walk the neighborhood for exercise.

We encourage our guests to call us if they have any questions or need information.

GREAT GET AWAY COTTAGE

  • 4 of 5
Home was extremely clean and well stocked for our get away week in Sonoma. The home had everything you could ask for and was a perfect retreat at the end of a long day of wine tasting. Wish the location would have been closer to town, but it was only a short drive into Sonoma for shopping and dining. Would highly recommend this property.

FUN, FAMILY TIME

  • 4 of 5
Family gathering for six, we all felt comfortably at home. It is very clean, savvy, updated, roomy, quiet. Neighborhood might deter some, but it is actually rather peaceful. Close to everything. The owners have obviously invested much time, thought, and effort into making this place one of exceptional quality. Wished it was mine!

A LOVELY RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
The six of us (2 grandparents, us and 2 kids) stayed here very comfortably. It is a lovely, clean and cozy home with a very spacious patio and backyard. David and Josette have thought of everything their guests may need. Sonoma plaza is a 5 minute drive and there is a very handy little grocery store that's a short walk away. Thank you for a nice experience in Sonoma!
