Overview

About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 6

This warm and charming house, a true Sonoma craftman's style built in 1891, sits on almost half an acre of land, totally enclosed to give you privacy and let you forget about the world. A nearby walking trail leads to Sonoma Plaza.

The main bedroom features a plush California king sized bed. The second and third bedrooms each have a pillow-top queen bed. Views of the Sonoma hillside are available from all bedrooms.

Relax and unwind in the lounge chairs just outside the covered back porch. To the right is a hot tub for four with an outdoor shower station, and to the left is an eating area for six with a three burner BBQ. Take a siesta after a nice meal, lie down and swing gently on the hammock for two.

The garden offers delights seasonally through year with 30 fruit trees and shrubs (peach, apple, pear, tangerine, pommelo, orange, grapefruit). Among the grove of the trees, settle back in a rocking chair, or relax on the comfortable sectional sofa under a gazebo.

Game Room: A recreation room has been added recently, with an 8' pool table, a 55' TV connected to HD cable box and Blue Ray DVD player, and a lounge/ bar area.

Wireless Connectivity: There is wireless connectivity throughout the property, so you can go to the internet with your laptop from the gazebo, the cabana, the porches, the game room or the al fresco dining area.

Orchard in A Garden Setting: There are different fruit and berries for different seasons. In spring time, there are 2 different kinds of cherries and strawberries. In summer there is an abundance of plums, followed by apricots, then yellow and white nectarines, ending with peaches. Blackberries, gold and red raspberries, along with 7 different kinds of table grapes are common in late summer. A couple varieties of apples, pears, and figs herald the arrival of fall, with chocolate and coffee cake persimmons and pomegranates ending the season. Winter is celebrated with Cara Cara oranges, limes, pommelo, grapefruit, tangerines and citron. When the all the citrus trees bloom in late winter, the whole property is perfumed with the most refreshing, soft and sweet smell. A new 3-1 pluot tree has just been planted in 2009, along with a sweet kiwi vine. Please note that due to different weather conditions, fruit yield and harvest time may vary from year to year.

The Best Vacation Home Ever!

  • 5 of 5

We spent an amazing week at Amadora with our adult children; it was truly the most welcoming and well-appointed home we have ever rented. The house is beautifully furnished with plenty of space for relaxing or entertaining. The kitchen is spacious and well-equipped, and a very nice gas grill and outdoor dining area makes evening meals 'al fresco' a special treat. The game room in a separate building on the property has a pool table, two sofas, and a wide-screen TV. We were lucky enough to have some friends visit us while we were at Amadora, and entertaining them was as easy and as comfortable as if we were in our own home. Joe (the owner) provided us with a literal book full of information on extra amenities, restaurants, wineries, and activities, and he even has arranged some special discounts at some activities for guests of Amadora. But by far the best feature of this wonderful home is its gardens - the entire property is covered with fruit trees, herbs, and flowers of every variety. We feasted all week on fresh figs, peaches, raspberries, and tomatoes from the garden. What a wonderful bonus! We will certainly return to Amadora next year.

Races Oasis

  • 5 of 5

Every year for the past few years we have been coming to Sonoma Raceway for the NHRA Drag races, and we have stayed at Amadora for most of those weekends. The one time we didn't just wasn't the same. It is such a pleasure to stay in such a comfortable, clean and well maintained home. Joe is very easy to work with and always gives us plenty of information. Since we spend most of our time at the race track we don't eat at the house but have found a gem of a restaurant nearby called Mamma Taninos. We enjoy morning coffee around the dining table and evening wine in the gazebo. The beds are comfortable. We usually have time for a couple games of Eight Ball. Love the fruit trees and bushes, usually we get few berries, peaches and nectarines when we come. Thank you for sharing this wonderful house.

Quaint and picturesque

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful experience staying in this Sonoma home. The pictures are great but don't even do this home justice :) it is much more spacious than we expected and the outdoor space was wonderful. The berries were in season and they were to die for. Not only was the house perfect but the owner made our trip planning so easy! We received several emails to assist with our itinerary. Thanks for sharing your home with us and we can't wait to come back for even longer next time!

Amazing house and location. .

  • 5 of 5

Our only constructive feedback would be that the mattresses need to be replaced and the bedrooms were really hot. We were here during a stretch of time with near 100 degree temps, so it would not normally be an issue.

Owner's Response: We have high quality mattresses with euro plush pillow top or mattress topper. Most of our guests love their sleep experience, but we understand that the choice of mattress is a highly personal one. Our portable ACs have wheels and they can be moved around when needed. Thank you for your suggestions, we will keep them in mind during our regular quality checks.
