Situated on a vineyard on Sonoma's desirable east-side, enjoy the views and privacy of our 2 bedroom home. The fully-equipped gourmet kitchen has stainless steel appliances including a Viking range, double dishwasher drawers, and full size refrigerator. Additional features include a farmhouse sink, and custom-built cabinets. The lovely kitchen opens out onto the backyard, which is surrounded on 2 sides by acres of vineyards. A friendly competitive game of Bocce is a must on the backyard court!

Enjoy total privacy as you unwind from a day of wine tasting, sight-seeing or shopping at the historic Sonoma Plaza. Relax on the porch swing where you can view people bicycling and walking our tree-lined street, or put your feet up and enjoy a glass of wine as you take in the unobstructed vineyard views from the back yard.

There are amazing restaurants in Sonoma, however you can also prepare meals in the fully-stocked, gourmet kitchen. It features a Viking range, high-end cookware, and Henckels knives, in addition to most anything you may need to whip up a lovely bite to eat!

Each bedroom has a Queen size bed with a luxurious memory foam mattress, cotton sheets, and duvet covers for ultimate comfort. The bathroom enjoys 2 sinks, a shower with white subway tiles and fixtures from Restoration Hardware.

About Julie Kidson

I live in the East Bay Area and have always loved Sonoma. I purchased the home in 2008 and renovated it in 2010. It is an amazing place to spend a relaxing weekend away from the fast pace of city life.

Julie Kidson purchased this house in 2008

Why Julie Kidson chose Sonoma County

It is bordered on 2 sides by acres and acres of vineyards!

Cute Cottage!

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay and may try to stay here again in the future! Had everything we needed. The shower lever is a little strange and was hard to get the right temp and there wasn't any frying pan, no other complaints!!!

Great location, clean!!!

Exactly as described and better

  • 5 of 5

This house has very good energy! From the moment we stepped foot into the cottage. We felt at home. We had tomatoes,onions and fresh herbs from the garden. Went to Sonoma market and purchased fresh crab since it is crab season right now and juicy porterhouse and prepared in the comfort of what felt like our own space. We enjoyed the backyard so much. From

Morning coffee watching the birds play in the vineyard to enjoying a glass of wine at sunset!Our little dog loved the enclosed safe backyard . Thank you for a cozy wonderful stay.

Great house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I got away for a three night stay in this great house. Although it was located very close to downtown Sonoma we felt like we had the privacy of being out in the country. The house was clean and well decorated. The kitchen was well equipped and was perfect for preparing a nice meal. The back yard garden area and bocce court was well done. Several of our favorite wineries were within 2 miles of the house. We are already talking about when we can get back out to CA. We would definitely stay here again.

Pleasant, clean, comfortable, convenient

  • 5 of 5

Nice house, nicely appointed including quality appliances in the kitchen and plenty of quality cookware, and large comfortable beds, nice bathroom especially the large shower, clean, and conveniently located (driving-wise, not really for walking), in a quiet neighborhood. Pleasant places to sit and congregate inside, as well as outside, especially in back with large patio table and bocce court. House was as represented, we would stay there again, and we would also recommend to others.

Bocce Ball & Vines, How Great Is That?

  • 5 of 5

We were on a birthday junket, 4 adults, and in this small home, we did not feel the least bit cramped...even with just 1 bathroom. Easy to find, just outside of Sonoma's town and with vineyards on 2 sides, it was lovely. The bocce ball court was definitely a highlight (we played whenever we were at the house) as were the strawberry and tomato crops. Comfy beds and living room seating as well.

The area is great for walking and there is a nice little co-op park just up the street on 8th. Watch out for the cars as many of them fly down the road, even though it is clearly marked with a slow speed limit.

I will say we did have a few downsides to this home: The BBQ is not gas/propane and for the cost of the rental, it should be. Not all of the lights in the home worked (inside and out) but I left a note for Julie so I'm sure that will be quickly addressed. We couldn't figure out the stereo system but that was OK since I always travel with my own.

We would recommend and return. We hated leaving...
