We are professionals who live in San Francisco. We couldn't resist the opportunity to buy a home in the heart of wine country. Our fourth barreling of the, on property, Syrah grapes is now resting in the barrel. We hope that you will be able to enjoy the local activities and relax in this get away.
Brandon Maio purchased this cottage in 2010
The on property vineyard is just a taste of the local beauty. With the mountain views from the front patio and local wineries a short walk down the road, this setting is truly a wine country get away.
Tour the local wineries, go golfing, enjoy a hike or just relax in the Hot Tub. This home offers something for everyone.
This is just the perfect place for 2 to 4 people to stay for a while. It really felt like home to us.
Everything was clean and tidy. The front porch is a beautiful place to hang out with a swinging bench chair and 2 adirondack chairs. The grape vines and plants in the front yard and a public park across from the quiet street made the home feel country, quiet and private. The living room has a nice big sofa and chair and is perfect for sitting around talking. There's a nice TV and Playstation 4 and wifi connected to the internet in the living room. No standard set of cable TV stations, but you can stream lots of entertainment from the internet to the TV. We weren't there to watch TV so the standard TV stations were not missed by us, but we were able to watch some olympic events streaming. The modern kitchen / dining room area is well equipped with all the amenities you might want. Everything was clean and easy to find. The whole place has a french cottage vibe that was a nice combo of modern and rustic.
The bedrooms had comfortable beds and nice closet space to put your stuff and hang your clothes. Both bedrooms have french doors leading out to a really nice patio area. There are tables, chairs a hammock and a jacuzzi all with shade and beautiful plants in the patio area. The jacuzzi was preheated and perfectly clean. It is also set in a private location with an outdoor shower nearby. We really enjoyed a nice soak there one night.
There is one bathroom that is cozy, but very cute with a single sink and a french style tub with a shower. The tub would be difficult to get in and out of if you have mobility issues. But if not, it works perfectly.
You can actually walk to a winery / restaurant almost across the street. There are also 2 other restaurants and a small convenience / grocery store within walking distance. There is a park with a large grass field and some slides / swings across the street and you can get to another park to the south with a 15 minute walk.
We were delighted with our stay here. Everything worked well and we had a great, restful stay.
We stayed here with another couple over Labor Day weekend to attend a wedding in the area. Our stay was very comfortable, and we had everything we needed. We loved the fenced in backyard and hot tub, a perfect end to our evenings! Brandon was very accessible via email for any questions we had, and we loved the thoughtful bottle of wine he and his wife left for us! If you're looking for the perfect getaway while you explore Sonoma wines, this is it.
We really enjoyed this nice cottage in Kenwood. Perfect for two couples or if one couple is looking for a little more room to spread out. Cottage was updated in and out and has all the amenities one should need. Location of this cottage was perfect for all our needs. The owner Brandon is very helpful and quick to respond to any needs you may have, whether via e-mail or phone.
3 of the 4 of us were not able to hook up to wireless on our phones. Not a big problem as your not there to be on the internet. Bedrooms could use a drawer or armoire, somewhere to put your clothes. Hooks to hang towels would have been useful too instead of hanging them over the doors. Hot tub and grill were a big bonus! Overall our stay was great and we would stay here again or recommend it to anyone.
A gorgeous little cottage, that's ideal for 1-2 couples to savor the best of wine country. The perfect mix of luxury comfort, modern amenities, classic styling, and scenic gardens. Best of all, just steps from the bevy of Kenwood wineries.
We had a wonderful stay in Sonoma. The house was exactly as pictured and described. The beds were super comfortable. We were out and about each day so we didnt get to make use of all the amenities offered, especially the hot tub. Brandon was wonderful. He and his wife were expecting their first baby at any moment but he still took the time to take my husband's calls regarding streaming movies! (Seems silly compared to what he was going through!) We would love to come back!
Our stay was great. The house was clean and bright and just the right size. Backyard landscaping was very well done. The owner, Brandon, was responsive and professional. The location is perfect for wine tasting and exploring Sonoma.
Walking distance to over 12 Sonoma wineries and tasting rooms, gourmet olive oil/ vinegar tasting, field/ park across street, wine/ food pairing at local tasting room one block away
