About Robert

Diana and I are both retired and we love buying, decorating and renting great vacation properties.

Robert purchased this house in 2011

Why Robert chose Sonoma County

We love Sonoma wine country and believe it to be one of the best places to live, work and play. It is only 45 miles from San Francisco and 40 miles from the Sonoma coast and it has everything you need for a relaxing vacation.

Our wonderful stay in Lavender Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have picked a better property to rent for our Sonoma/Napa vacation! The property owners truly make it feel like a home away from home - well stocked with everything we needed. It's a perfect retreat after a day visiting wineries and sight seeing. Nestled among the trees, the deck was great for lounging with a glass of wine and some appetizers. I highly recommend it and plan to stay there again on our next visit!

Perfect place for a relaxing honeymoon week

  • 5 of 5

This house is simply beautiful! From the moment we pulled into the driveway we knew it would be perfect. The house is well stocked with all the essentials. Everything from laundry detergent, hand soap, kitchen utensils, and even spices for cooking. Every bedroom and bathroom had plenty of towels and linens and they were all extremely soft and well cared for. No thin hotel room towels here! We were most impressed with the kitchen. We had planned to cook most of our meals and this beautiful kitchen allowed us to do that. We only needed to purchase the food itself as the house had everything else we needed. We grilled outside on the deck a couple of nights and cooked on the stove. It had more than enough plates, cups, and utensils. We could have fed a family of 8 easily. The livingroom was wondefully comfortable with the fireplace and tv with cable. We discovered it was Netflix enabled and that was GREAT! The neighborhood is nice and quiet. The house is centrally located to the wineries and the Plaza and basically everything you could possibly want to do. The owners were very responsive to emails and kept open lines of communication throughout or stay. We enjoyed it so much not only will we be back but are looking at other properties they own. This house was simply perfect.

Great place for a week in wine country

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in the house. The house is very comfortable, with a great kitchen; we had dinner

"at home" a couple of nights. There were plenty of extra towels in the bathrooms, along with many extras. We ended up driving all over both Sonoma and Napa; the house was an easy drive from all of the places we wanted to go. We even found live jazz in "downtown" Sonoma one night. The neighborhood was very quiet.

Beautiful, secluded getaway

  • 5 of 5

This family-friendly home had wonderful touches that made our trip so much easier (A baby crib and a high chair! So much less stuff to pack!). The deck is a lovely retreat and the open-concept living area is perfect for everyone to interact while meals are being prepared and eaten. We easily fit 3 cars in the driveway and even saw a deer while we were out for a walk. Loved the location, just minutes from stores and a quick drive into Downtown Sonoma. Thank you for a wonderful home base for our family trip!

Perfect Sonoma Wedding Home Base

  • 5 of 5

My nephew was getting married in Sonoma and I wanted a convenient, quaint location to stay between all of the wedding festivities. Lavender Hill provided exactly that. Bob and Diana take wonderful care of their wine country retreat. When you first walk in the front door you feel as though you have come "home." The decor is warm and inviting plus they've provided all of the amenities you could ask for. One word of advice - check the garage for any missing trash cans! I failed to remember this detail. If you want a quiet, cozy wine country retreat, don't wait, book Lavender Hill!
