About Brandon Maio
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
Why Brandon Maio chose Kenwood
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.

A nice, tidy little 2-bedroom home near Santa Rosa and Glen Ellen.
The property is in a lovely area surrounded by wineries, including some very good ones (VJB, Ty Caton). The house is comfortable, clean (except the oven), charming garden, well furnished. Could use a few more amenities, like an iron and an ironing board, a tea kettle, lamps on both sides of the beds rather than just one. The owner is super nice, and very helpful by email. The drive into Santa Rosa is about ten minutes... fantastic area for biking, too. Kenwood had some major damage from the fires, but it was localized and many blocks from this rental. You don’t see it, or smell smoke, or anything. More broadly, you can visit and enjoy Sonoma without feeling that the area is a war zone, the way the news made it sound. These fires were horrible but also patchy, and the vast majority of Sonoma Valley is totally untouched, even right in Kenwood which might have seemed likely to be about as impacted as could be found. So don’t hesitate and come visit a stunningly lovely area, with sensational wines, fantastic restaurants, and really nice people. The aftermath of the fires won’t somehow ruin the visit.
Amazing property and great location!!
We were in for a wedding at Chateau St Jean which is right down the street and rented this gem for four days while we were here. It is exactly as shown in the pictures. Great location walking distance to several wineries, restaurants and a convenience store. The quiet, secluded backyard with the hot tub was a welcome respite after a day of wine tasting! The house was immaculately cleaned and the beds were very comfortable. Sonoma center was a short 15-20 minute drive and there are plenty of Ubers to get around. Brandon was a great host and the communication was perfect. I highly recommend this property -- you won't be disappointed!
Thank you note
I am very pleased with customer support by owner and property was exelent.
Great location - Great back yard with hot tub
Close to hiking trails, wineries, dining and groceries. Several wineries within minutes driving - tasting rooms within walking distance. Enjoyed hiking in several state parks only minutes away by car. Everything you need is very conveniently located. Enjoyed quiet evenings in the private back yard.
Property was just as described. Very comfortable and clean.
We thought the location was perfect. It was very nice to walk to a couple of places to eat and taste wine. Owner was very thorough with directions while in the house ( hot tub, lights, etc). We would love to return.
Great weekend cottage!
This place was perfect for me and two friends for a long weekend. It's very cute inside and the porch swing and hot tub made for great additions to the home. We had a small snafu with something in the house, but Brandon was super quick to respond to fix the issue and the weekend continued without a hitch. My only small complaint is that with the claw tub, the shower curtain wraps all the way around and I felt a little cramped while showering. But, that's just a personal thing! Plus, there is an outdoor shower that can be utilized instead. Brandon is a great host and I would definitely stay here again.
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. I have 4 bee hives on the property in the side yard that help us produce local honey. You will see honeybees sipping water from the fountain in the private back yard. Although the bees have never been an issue, if you are allergic to honey bees, this is probably not a comfortable property for you to stay at. Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions. County codes do not permit parties at short term rentals. TOT#891N
