About Janelle

We are a family living in San Francisco. We have two daughters.

Janelle purchased this villa in 2010

Why Janelle chose Sonoma County

We have always loved Sonoma County, and Sonoma in particular because it really feels unspoiled.

What makes this villa unique

Our outdoor space includes a concrete table for 10 shaded by olive trees, and a built-in charcoal barbecue. There is a bocce court in the middle of the olive orchard and a ping pong table in the studio. Sonoma Square, which is close by, is filled with great restaurants and shopping.

Amazing home in a fantastic, central location

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a 3nt stay at Janelle's beautiful home and I already can't wait for the next visit. This was a girls trip for myself and 5 friends. The home was well laid out - more spacious than the pictures let on and the entertainment 'factor' was unbelievable. 3bdrms/2 ba in the main home w/another bdrm/ba/living area/kitchen in the cottage. The beds were very comfortable. The pool was gorgeous w/a good number of lounge chairs and plenty of beach towels to use at the house. Bocce court, bikes and outdoor space did not go unused. We had a blast at the place and hated leaving. Usually I'm pretty busy exploring Sonoma and the surrounding towns during my visits but this time... we largely stayed at the house because it was so comfortable, well laid out and just fun! If I could make any improvements - it would be for heated pool year-round (not a huge deal but would be a nice bonus) and a hot tub/Jacuzzi connected to the pool for the cooler nights. Regardless though - those factors would not stop me from renting the place again. Janelle was also wonderful to work with... thank you, Janelle, for your hospitality!

Awesome house in great location!

  • 5 of 5

6 of us recently stayed at this home for a girls weekend away. The house was lovely and was perfectly equipped for our vacation. Although we could not use the pool as it was still too cool, we did sit outside and enjoy the fire pit. The interior was perfectly spacious and we never felt crowded at all. The home is about 10 minutes drive to downtown Sonoma and many Sonoma wineries. It is about 30 minutes to Yountville and associated wineries. We had great luck with mynapavalleydriver.com and Barry specifically for anyone in search of a wine driver.

We enjoyed eating out at Girl and The Fig and El Dorado Kitchen though our dinner away at La Bottega was the group favorite. I highly recommend this home for couples, families (there is a fun play room with foosball and the backyard bocce) and ladies outings!

Great spot

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed staying here for girlfriend reunion with 6 of us. Took advantage of the bocce court, fire pit, picnic table and gas fireplace inside. Fairly quiet here. Slept us all with a separate beds (one used the couch in the cottage). Too cool for the pool, but enjoyed sitting near it for relaxation in the afternoons. Would have appreciated a few more hand towels for ladies wanting them for face washing rather than just drying off hands. Comfy beds!

Amazing Home!

  • 5 of 5

This property is beautiful and a great space for a group of people. The home is located very close to Sonoma square and great wineries (e.g., Buena Vista). The home has everything you need: bikes, fire pit, full stocked kitchen, super comfy beds, pool, game room, etc. Sadly it rained the weekend we stayed at the home, but I am hopeful we can return in the summer and fully enjoy the bocce court, bbq, and pool. The olive trees are also a great touch! Highly recommend this home!

Wonderful, eclectic, cool property close to town!

  • 5 of 5

Our friend's 50th birthday wine tasting weekend was made even more wonderful with the stay at this great property. It spans a large area, and the multiple structures and well designed landscape layout make excellent use of space and light. We immediately felt indulged and comfortable! The game room/studio was a great hit, as was the bocce court. The main house kitchen came equipped with everything and our group thoroughly enjoyed a home cooked meal after a long day of tastings. We'd love to return in the summer, to take advantage of the pool!

What a beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

The front of the house is deceivingly simple. I honestly thought I had put the wrong number in the GPS the evening we first arrived, but my worries were soon laid to rest. The main house is adorable and comfortably kept my two teenage girls, aunt, husband and myself. My mother and father stayed in the guest cottage which was a bit more rustic, but a nice retreat from the main house. They liked the privacy, yet could still easily be a part of the group.

I can't imagine how beautiful and enjoyable the yard is in the summer! We weren't able to use the full potential of the pool because our gathering was in January, but the remaining bocce ball court, deck and fire pit were entertainment enough. The bonus room or party room as my nephew called it, was a perfect place to play ping pong, foose ball, and coloring. The bikes were a nice bonus and I wish we would have taken advantage of having them. It was rather wet every morning and we didn't want to risk getting caught downtown in rain, but it would have been a perfect ten minute jaunt to the square.

Thank you Janelle for sharing your beautiful home with us! It made a wonderful 50th anniversary memory for my mom and dad.

Amy
