Jim Bertlesman purchased this cottage in 2005

We joyfully lived in Casa de Luna for a year, while our new home was being built. This unique and coveted location is only a 15 minute walk, 5 minute bike ride and .5 mile drive to downtown Sonoma Square. It is quiet, peaceful and has everything you need to live for a month or a lifetime.

Behind the cottage, there are mountain and meadow views, surrounded by flower gardens, olive and fruit trees, starry skies and full moons. Fresh country eggs from our chickens await you, along with a special bottle of wine. A serene country setting, for both friends and family, is the ideal getaway.

The Casa de Luna is a specially crafted cottage, situated on one acre and located in the heart of the city of Sonoma. The exclusive cottage offers designer style living in 840 square feet, with field and mountain views from a beautiful patio in the rear. Casa de Luna cottage consists of two major buildings, connected by a breezeway. The cottage is located in the rear of our property with complete privacy and security. Parking is next to the cottage. it is .5 miles to town and a 15 minute walk. The cottage is next to the bike trail, for easy access to restaurants, wineries and the Town Square.

It is also an easy driving distance to some of the most scenic areas of the country...San Francisco (45 minutes), the North coast of Mendocino (one hour), Lake Tahoe (3 hours) and Yosemite ( 3 hours).

My wife and I absolutely loved staying in Jim and Diana's guest house. Everything is within walking distance. The neighborhood is quiet, safe, and neighbors very friendly. Jim and Diana are both very warm and respectful of your privacy. We stayed for four months and loved every minute. We highly recommend firing up the grill on the patio, opening a bottle of wine, relaxing on the lounge chairs and looking over head at the amazing sky littered with bright stars. A sight to remember for years to come. We are looking forward to staying here again.

My wife and I spent 5 wonderful days in Sonoma staying in the cottage on Jim and Diana's property. We felt like we were staying in the country when we were just a short drive or walk to Sonoma plaza, grocery stores, etc. As others have mentioned the patio is wonderful to just hang out on, the accomodations are very comfortable and our hosts were both very helpful and generous. They even lent us their toaster for our stay. They were available to help us but not at all intrusive. We came as tenants and left as friends. We took advantage of Jim's offer and helped ourselves to fresh eggs each day; what a treat! We would highly recommend staying here for a couple or individual.

This cottage is located on a beautiful property, very quiet! Spacious bedroom, comfortable bedding, large flat screen tv, small sofa & chair, large walk-in closet, and 1/2 bath. Walks out to lovely patio. The other side of the cottage has a larger living/dining area with kitchen & full bath. It also walks out to the same lovely patio! There were fresh flowers displayed on both sides of the cottage which I appreciated. I was able to take a shower on one side and then finish getting ready in the 1/2 bath on the bedroom side which freed up the full bath for my boyfriend to use. This allowed us the space we needed to get ready for the day. The cottage sits behind the owners home and there is a large courtyard between the two homes. Wow is the backyard/courtyard beautiful! Lovely trees, flowers, and green grass. Quiet sitting areas if you want to relax or read. The owners were very helpful; Dianna introduced herself upon our arrival to make sure we had everything we needed and after we left, I realized my wallet was missing and Jim was kind enough to go thru the cottage looking for it and even offered to go into town if I might have left it somewhere!! Fortunately, I found it; but I was very grateful for the help!! The location is perfect! You feel like you're in the country but you're less than 5 minutes to town. Overall, its very private, clean, well maintained, & comfortable. The only thing I would recommend is to consider adding more Kleenex boxes; I have allergies and could have used them. That is so minor; it's more of a suggestion than a criticism. My only complaint is that I just wasn't there long enough to just hang out at this beautiful property. Book it, you won't regret it! I can't wait to go back and hope to stay here again!

Beautiful Stay In Wine Country

My wife and I came to town for wedding festivities, and sought a rental near the center of town: especially near the Sonoma Lodge. Jim's beautiful property was just a few blocks off of the main drag, in a charming, quiet neighborhood alongside a small country park.

Their property appears to be a few acres (to City folks), with a beautiful split guest home, (new- clean) bbq, gorgeous grounds, a hammock, a recently renovated/new patio, country views, and chickens... yes, chickens! [But the kind that let you sleep in until around 8 or 9 am...]

It was so much more than we had expected. There were plenty of beautiful touches from fresh flowers, high thread-count sheets, a new flat screen television: the place was spotless. It really is right out of a Norman Rockwell painting.

Jim could not be more hospitable; he was warm and gracious.

The listing was accurately described, the property was well maintained, and the location was near to fun activities. We are happy to recommend this and look forward to a return next time we are in wine country! Excellent stay.

A relaxing getaway close to all the fun of Sonoma and wine country!

I stayed here for a mother-daughter weekend and it was so perfect! I can't wait to return with my boyfriend! The cottage is in a quiet location slightly off the beaten path but still so close that you can get to town and wineries within a few minutes. Upon arrival we immediately relaxed in the back yard on the lounge chairs and enjoyed some wine we picked up from one of my favorite wineries - Gundlach-Bundschu (only about 3 miles up the road). It was so relaxing that we contemplated cancelling our dinner reservations and grilling up something on the BBQ. Buut Sonoma restaurants are just too good to miss. The owner was very friendly and made everything easy, arrival, departure - so smooth! We rent houses in this area a few times a year and usually with a large group - it was nice to find a small place that we can come and enjoy the area when we don't have 8 friends joining in! The bed was super soft and comfy, the shower was wonderful, the kitchen is well suited for cooking and would be good for a longer stay. We felt so happy and content in the house and yard area that we were almost sad to go out and have fun - but knowing we had this great place to come home to at the end of the day was great! At the end of a long day of drinking and eating and shopping, we headed back with our dessert and enjoyed the peacefulness of the country. We will definitely be back!!!
