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.

Fantastic find in Sonoma!

  • 5 of 5

This house is absolutely amazing! There is plenty of room for 3 couples and it has everything you need for a great week or long weekend.

In addition to a great house, there is a separate game room (with a pull out sofa and full bath). While we were too busy exploring wineries to use the game room, I could see how it would be a great benefit for a group who wanted to chill out in the evening. The yard is stocked with fruit trees and shrubs. Raspberries, apples, pears, limes, and figs are just a few of the wonderful finds available depending on the season.

The location is wonderful as well. You could walk to a couple of restaurants if you wanted to. It's on a corner lot so there is plenty of parking in the driveway and on the street.

Joe the owner is wonderful. He sent emails every week or so with things to do, see and explore while visiting. I felt extremely welcome and well-prepared before and during our stay.

I would highly recommend this house to anyone!

Great location, spacious, clean & fully equipped

  • 5 of 5

5 adults stayed in the home & we had plenty of space & privacy. The home was clean & had everything we needed for our long weekend vacation. We loved the fruit trees in the yard! The home is close to everything yet felt like a private retreat. Joe was incredibly helpful leading up to our trip, providing excellent communication, information & recommendations for everything from wineries to restaurants. Thank you for your your part in making our first visit to Sonoma one that created beautiful memories for a group of long-time friends!

Great property! Awesome owner! Beautiful gardens!

  • 5 of 5

The Amadora house had everything we needed! Comfortable living spaces and bedrooms. Great use of the garage for a game room and extra bathroom. We enjoyed spending cool mornings and evenings in the yard surrounded by beautiful flowers and fruit trees. The property is just a short drive to the Sonoma plaza and grocery store.

Joe provided a wealth of information on things to do and places to eat and drink.

I would definitely stay here again and recommend to friends visiting the area!
