I'm Sally and am a local in Sonoma since 1979. I've owned this vacation rental home since 1985 and have improved it substancially over the years yet kept the authentic cottage look and feel. I moved here from Minneapolis where my photo was taken and I love to be outdoors hiking, biking, exploring...all walking distance from the cottage!
Sally Mertes-Stone purchased this cottage in 1994
The location is perfect for a weekend in Sonoma. Just a block from the main square, lots of shops, restaurants, places to taste wine, historical sights. What more could we ask for? Both couples had their own private bathroom, there was a bottle of wine waiting for us and a bakery selection for the next day's breakfast. We will be back!
We've stayed at several places booked on VRBO and this was the first time I was disappointed. For the price, they really should upgrade the bathroom, one is really not functional. The other bathroom had no working lights. Left a message for Sally but she was not very helpful. My bad, I should have read all the reviews, not just the first few. My advice, don't stay here.
We had never been to Sonoma but I knew I wanted to stay close to the plaza. I was so completely PLEASED with our stay at Casa Chiquita Cottage. The place was decorated very cute and the location is unbelievable! It is less than a block from the plaza and the best restaurants in town (The Girl and the Fig and El Dorado Kitchen). We also really enjoyed sitting on the front porch after our winery visits and before we went out for the evening.
There are two bedrooms in the cottage both with an private bathroom. One has an authentic claw foot bath tub and the other with a shower. The cabinets are fully loaded with all the supplies and dishes you would need.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Cottage and would come back again!
I have stayed at Casa Chiquita at least 5 times. I love it! I love the convenience to the square, beautiful roses, exquisite interior design, and the gracious host. It is rare to find a place where you feel right at home and pampered at the same time. I love to kick off my shoes and settle in for a lovely retreat.
My wife and I had an absolutely wonderful vacation at this beautiful cottage. The cottage is tastefully decorated and has everything we needed for our two week stay. Its proximity to the village square allowed us to walk to the restaurants, movie theatre, shops and tasting rooms . The owner was very helpful with information regarding the Sonoma Valley. The cottage has a fully equipped kitchen with all the modern conveniences. The bedrooms are cozy and comfortable. We plan on making this a regular Christmas visit.
My elderly parents rented this house for a month and a half....one problem after another...owner not attentive...hard to contact...never responded to problems...there was a heat wave in June 2013 that was unbearable and she had forgotten to turn on an outside switch for the air conditioner...never came around to check...promised a partial refund...never paid a refund...totally ignored us...needs major cleaning...mold on ceilings...dirty carpets...brought our own dishes and kitchen utensils...not safe for elderly people...no outside railing up and down stairs...outdated old stove unsafe and HOT at all times. I would not recommend staying here at all!
