Overview

Sonoma County Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Our home includes a main house, art/music studio and guest cottage which surround a center courtyard with a large deck, concrete dining table, lawn, pool, bocce court and olive orchard. The main house has 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms (newly remodeled in January 2015). There is a full bathroom in the hall. Master bedroom has a Cal King bed and private bathroom with dual sinks. Second bedroom has a Queen bed. Third bedroom has twin beds. Our home is reminiscent of a tuscan villa, with rustic wood floors, and a large country farm table. The kitchen has concrete countertops, a country farm sink, and is fully stocked with all modern amenities. There is a breakfast nook and two person bar adjacent the kitchen, perfect for guests to mingle while preparing dinner. The kitchen opens up to the great room with living area, dining room, and gas fireplace.

Living/dining room patio door opens up to courtyard with large deck for barbecuing and outdoor dining. There is a concrete table for 10 under olive shade trees, and a built-in charcoal barbecue.

The separate 1 bedroom/1 bathroom cottage features wood and tuscan tile floors, full kitchen, queen bedroom, air conditioning, and a private deck/patio overlooking the bocce court and olive orchard.

There is a 800 sq. ft. open studio with art supplies, stage, guitar and keyboard. There is also a ping pong table and a bocce court.

The saline pool stays warm in the summer with a thermal cover.

We have 6 new hybrid bikes of various sizes with helmets and locks for you to enjoy during your stay.

The property is located on Sonoma's East Side, complete with a rich variety of vineyards and wine tasting, including Gundlach Bundschu, Buena Vista, Ravenswood, and Sebastiani. Sonoma Square is a flat 1.5 mile bike ride or stroll away. The Lovall Valley Loop is a great road bike ride just outside our front door.

Please call 415-407-7023 before sending payment for your reservation!

Check in (after 4pm)/out (before 11am) is weekdays only. We have a strict 9:30pm loud noise curfew.

Why Janelle chose Sonoma County

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

Amazing Fun Property

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this great home. It has every convenience you can think of. Bikes, pool, bocce court, ping pong, outdoor table in an olive grove, fire pit and much more. The kids had a blast. We cooked and played to our hearts' content. Our host was gracious and accommodating and this is the best home we have stayed in yet. The landscaping and decor are fabulous. What a treat. Thank you for such a nice vacation spot.

Paradise in Sonoma!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Villa for a 3-day ladies getaway weekend. There were 8 of us and we fit comfortably in both the main house and the guest house. The property was GORGEOUS and very well maintained. The house was cozy (but not small), extremely clean and had everything we could possibly want for a relaxing weekend. The weather did not cooperate and it rained the entire time so we did not get to enjoy the pool or outside amenities. We did LOVE the studio and did yoga every morning. The bikes were a nice touch and we braved the weather to ride to the vineyards that were close to the property. There seems like there is space for more than 8 guests but I guess the septic is the limiting factor. I'm hoping to return for a family vacation with a few families!

Welcoming and relaxed

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed out getaway weekend in Sonoma. Everything worked really well. The place was clean and well laid out. The outdoors areas were great to enjoy a meal or drink. Loved the bocci court. Sadly too cool for the pool. The bikes were an added bonus - plenty of places to ride, hills or flats. Having helmets was key. We would highly recommend this place!

Perfect home and location

  • 5 of 5

What a find! The vacation started the moment we walked in the door. The home is well-supplied with everything you could need for your time in Wine Country. Everyone agreed that the beds were incredibly comfortable and the bathrooms are well supplied with towels, shampoo, soap...just bring your toothbrush!

We cooked two nights, and the kitchen was equipped well with lots of pots and pans and serving pieces and utensils.

The outside space may be even more inviting than the inside space, with several decks, patios and other places to just sit and enjoy. A firepit is provided as well as a charcoal grill. It was too cold for the pool, and we just didn't have enough time for bocce, but we were so impressed with the amount of land and how well-kept everything was.

The studio is another fun place, with a karaoke machine, and electric piano and art supplies. The bikes are also located in its garage.

We had a couple stay in the guest house as well. It was perfect to have them so close, yet have their own private space.

Be aware that the third bedroom in the main house does have sliding barn doors which don't do much to block out any noise, but it did not bother our group.

Enjoying Sonoma

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a week over the Christmas holidays. The house is on a very large property and includes the main house, a separate guest house, and a game room. The house is about 1.5 miles from the Sonoma square, but very easy access, including via the six bicycles included with the rental. The house is loaded with pretty much everything we needed......well-equipped kitchen, modern functioning appliances, comfortable and plentiful furniture, and incredibly comfortable bedding. The only problem we had (and I think it was our lack of familiarity with the equipment) was getting the TV to work. The system apparently recently transitioned to a universal remote, but there were not adequate instructions on how to use it and we could not figure it out.

All-in-all, the spaciousness and the location of the house make this a 5-star property......everyone in our group had a great time, and would most certainly stay there again if the opportunity to visit wine country arose again.

The owner was also evry easy to work with, and the entire process of arranging and paying for the rental was smooth and easy.

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Property was great for a family vacation. Plenty of room for everyone to have their own space and also room to spend time together. Location of the home was perfect- Close to town,grocery, restaurants, etc. Really enjoyed our stay! Would love to come back during the summer. The owner, Janelle, provided extremely prompt replies to any questions we had before/during our stay. Property was well maintained and attractive. Our favorite activities included visiting the Armstrong Redwood Forest and Sonoma Coast State Park. Just under an hour drive, but the scenery and drive was a beautiful trip in itself.
