Overview

Sonoma County House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom, 1 bath, sleeps 4 adults

TOT Certificate number 874N

3 night minimum stay on weekends during high and peak seasons.

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.

We are firm believers in Green Building and we used sustainable materials such as FSC lumber, non-formaldeyde insulation, and reclaimed materials where we could. We truly hope you enjoy your stay here!

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.

rural luxury

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our time staying in Julie's home; this home was just what we needed to relax! The home, indoors and outdoors, is well maintained, clean, and offers comfortable and spacious rooms and outdoor areas. The gardens are so nice, and I think these places were our favorite areas to be! Both bedrooms offer comfortable beds, and storage to allow you to unpack your bags. The bathroom is large, and also has room for you to keep all of your personal things. The wi-fi works great, and we had no trouble connecting with our business back home each day.

If this home is available for our next trip to Sonoma, I will not hesitate to book here again!

Charming vineyard property!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at several places in Sonoma and Napa and this spot takes the cake. The beautifully restored home backs up to a gorgeous vineyard. Everything is current and the backyard is incredible to enjoy after a day of wine tasting! Kitchen is great, beds are super comfortable, and Nest takes care of your temperature needs during the different seasons. Julie has this home dialed in to perfection!

Highly recommend to people looking to wine taste / soak up Northern California.

Wonderful, spacious backyard with amazing vineyard views.

  • 5 of 5

The house has many windows offering expansive views of the vineyards on two sides. It is located in a quiet neighborhood a short distance from downtown Sonoma. The outdoor space is exceptional - we stayed for a week and enjoyed playing bocce every afternoon and sitting on the comfortable furniture while enjoying a glass of wine. The views from inside the house looking out to the vineyards make this a truly magical spot.

Julie is more than accommodating and really deserves the renovation award she won from the city of Sonoma for her adaption of this residence.

Modern & Beautiful Farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was wonderful. It was our second visit, and was more enjoyable than the first. The house is clean, comfortable, with modern touches and an amazing kitchen. The view is unbeatable, looking out over vineyards, not neighbors, and 3 minutes drive from the Sonoma Plaza. So fun!!!!
