This house is "gorgeous" and serene. I couldn't have asked for a better weekend.

So many outside activities to choose from. I love the playhouse! Jeana

Wine Country Trip

  • 5 of 5

This house was awesome! Beautiful grounds, lovely location, everything we needed. We had 6 couples total and it was perfect for all of us. We toured both Napa & Sonoma wineries and this was a great location for both. We were able to fix breakfast in the mornings and cooked supper one of the evenings, and the house was equipped with everything we needed. We would definitely consider renting Buena Sonoma again!!

This house is perfect. The photos really don't do it justice. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed to cook for a large group and it was far more modern then anything else available. Enjoy your time at Buena Sonoma!

Wine Country Perfection

  • 5 of 5

A group of 11 of us stayed at this property for a bachelorette and we couldn't have asked for a better place. We had plenty of space, enjoyed the wonderful kitchen, and the grounds were amazing. The location was close to many top notch wineries and Sonoma Square but still felt private and secluded. The beds were comfortable and the house had everything we needed. I've stayed at many rentals and it is rare to find one this true to the photos and reviews. We were sad to leave today and would like to come back for a more extended stay next time to enjoy everything the property has to offer.

Great Property for a Couple's Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 5 couples looking for a sophisticated and fun getaway to the Napa/Sonoma wine country over the Labor Day holiday and finding a place large enough to accommodate us proved fairly difficult, as most properties don't have that many double/queen/king beds, but this place was PERFECT! We felt very safe at the home and since we are in our mid 20's and still like to stay up late and hang out, we felt secluded enough that we wouldn't be a bother to surrounding neighbors with the area's noise curfew. We cooked at the house and everything was in good working order. Bathrooms/bedrooms/common areas were all nice and clean. Lots to do around the property so we wish we had more time to just hang out at the house. Pictures are also very true to the property. I can't really think of one bad thing to say and would definitely stay here again and recommend to friends and family!

A wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful week-long family vacation in this beautiful home. There is so much to see and do in the Sonoma/Napa area. Historic downtown Sonoma was just a few minutes away and offered great restaurants, shops and California history. That said, this home is what made it a memorable week. Being able to get the entire family together - children and grandchildren - is always special. Being able to have everyone enjoy the swimming pool, the hot tub, the sauna, the bocce court and the pool table made it seem like we were staying in a resort. I'll definitely return for another stay in the future.

Wow! LOVED THIS HOUSE! We've been renting through VRBO for over 10 years in the Napa/Sonoma area and this house was BY FAR the best house for our group of 12. The house, guest house, location, pool, hot tub, outdoor fire place were all AMAZING! Looking forward to renting again next year!!
