Escape to the Heart of Sonoma Valley Wine Country

Travel up a country lane that ambles through a quiet neighborhood to a delightful 1-bedroom, 1 bath home. There’s a sense of coming home when you turn into the gated driveway, welcomed by a bright and sunny 2-acre shared property. Tranquil and secluded, it is only minutes to the historic Sonoma Plaza and its lively dining, shopping and wine tasting boutiques and a short drive to over 50 wineries. The interior is tastefully furnished in a contemporary style, and has a friendly, open design. The living area has two comfortable couches and a large screen TV/DVD. The spacious bedroom features a king size bed with luxurious linens and en suite bathroom.

The kitchen is fully equipped for assembling a quick snack or preparing a more elaborate meal. The Petite Syrah Cottage, with its picturesque setting and intimate feel, is ideal for couples. This convenient location is perfect for exploring the wine region and is less than an hour from San Francisco and the Bay Area. Escape to Sonoma and get away to a true wine country experience.

About Michael Marino

We have lived in Sonoma Valley for more then 25 years. We own and operate California Wine Tours, the areas #1 wine tour company.

Michael Marino purchased this cottage in 1999

Why Michael Marino chose Sonoma County

The Wine Country has a lot to offer but when it comes to where we wanted to buy the decision was easy, Sonoma Valley is the best. Hands down!

What makes this cottage unique

One of the best benefits of the rental is it's size. It's larger then most 1 bedroom houses out there. It's 1,000 sq feet, in addition it has a private patio and Hot Tub right off the Master Bedroom. The location is also a plus, only 2.6 miles to the Downtown Historic Sonoma Plaza and 5 minutes to the wineries.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved everything about Sonoma. Coming back to the "Petite Syrah House" at the end of an amazing day made it feel just like home. We couldn't have picked a better spot. we hope to come back very soon!

P.S. The Segway Tour of the Sonoma Plaza was awesome!

Perfect Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I come to Sonoma multiple times a year and try different VRBO rentals each time - this was by the far the best one! The location was amazing, so easy to get to Sonoma Highway and also the Sonoma Square. The setting was very peaceful and quiet. The rental was extraordinarily comfortable and clean - a perfect stay!

Beautiful clean and new!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time using VRBO and what a treat it was! The place was perfect and exactly as the pictures depicted. We spent most of our time in Sonoma which was an easy 5 minute drive away. Everything we could need was provided and the instructions were perfect. Highly recommend this place- they take such good care!

Quiet wine country retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Petite Syrah. The house was clean and well-appointed, and just the right size for 2 people. Michael went the extra mile to make sure we had a relaxing time, even draining and refilling the hot tub. Distance to town and the Sonoma valley wineries was perfect. We'd absolutely return on our next adventure to Sonoma, and recommend this property. Read all the other reviews - pretty much the truth of this place.

Wonderful property that exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

The property was everything we hoped for and more. The location is wonderful very quiet, yet just a few minutes drive to the local amenities and the Sonoma Plaza. I would have no problem in recommending this property for your holiday and would most definitely return to stay here again if Sonoma is our location choice.
