The Retro Retreat is a fabulous little house built in 1951 and recently updated for comfort and convenience with central heat and A/C. It is centrally located in a very quiet neighborhood just north of the town of Sonoma, with easy access to highway 12. We have an updated kitchen with new cabinets, appliances and granite counter tops.
The main living room, kitchen and dining area is open, providing an extra large space for entertaining and relaxing with family and friends. A great space for celebrating holidays, birthdays, anniversaries, or just long weekends! One entire wall of the living room, dinning and kitchen area is glass, looking out on a covered patio and large back yard. The floor plan is ideal for two couples or a family. Two bedrooms, a full and half bath are in one wing of the house, another bedroom and full bath are in the other. The living room, dining area and kitchen are in the center of the house, providing complete privacy between the two wings.
The Retro Retreat is just minutes from the Sonoma Plaza (2.4 miles) for shopping and dining experiences, and within walking distance of the world famous Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa. In just a few minutes, heading North on highway 12, you will visit dozens of the best wineries California has to offer.
If you want to stay in after a day of wine tasting, dinner is a snap with provisions from Whole Foods or Sonoma Market. In addition to the new kitchen, there is a BBQ, dining table, chairs and lounge seating on the covered patio. Plus, staying at the Retro Retreat is a great way to save your $$, so you can splurge all that much more on Sonoma’s fine wines and dinning.
When you book with us, let us know if you like red or white, so we can greet you with a bottle of one of our favorite Sonoma wines.

About Josette and David Eichar
Josette and Dave have lived in the Sonoma Valley for 12 years. While living in San Francisco, we often spent long weekends in the Sonoma Wine Country, so we decided to move here to enjoy the warm sun and the outdoors, away from the city traffic and noise.
Josette and David Eichar purchased this House in 2011

Perfect for our girls trip to Sonoma!
The house was clean, well stocked and provided lots of space for the 5 of us. We loved the location and the beautiful outdoor patio!
We would definitely book again, the owners provided lots of information and the house was at a great value. What a great time!
Lots of space and great location
The "Retro Retreat" was perfect for 3 of us celebrating a big birthday. We spent 3 nights there, each had our own space, cooked in the well-supplied kitchen, and drank wine out in the big backyard area.
Wine country is virtually all around and the 'action' in Sonoma is only a few miles away.
Josette and David are quite particular about the cleanliness of their property and it shows. We really felt at home and our only regret is that we didn't stay longer.
Great house, spacious and well located. There was everything we needed in the house, and we even got to enjoy a couple barbecues on the patio thanks to an unexpected warm weather in November. Quiet neighborhood. Will definitely come back next time we visit our family in Sonoma.
Great vacation home
The house was clean, convenient, and spacious. It was perfect for what we needed. It was very relaxing sitting on the back porch in the evening. David was extremely accommodating and went out of his way to ensure a great stay. I would definitely recommend this vacation home to anyone staying in Sonoma or surrounding area.
Beautiful property in quiet neighborhood
This was a fantastic place to stay. Josette and David are very friendly and helpful. We loved sitting outside on the deck. The area is beautiful as well as with good hiking trails near by and great food and sights to see in the town of Sonoma.
Girls Trip 2017
The home was perfect for our girls trip to Sonoma. The home was clean and provided everything we needed. The neighborhood is quiet and was a good location for our visit. It's a few minutes from the Sonoma Square (be sure to eat Girl and the Fig) and several grocery stores. We enjoyed sitting on the back porch in the evenings - lots of seating if you have a bigger group. If I am fortunate enough to visit again I would request to stay at the Retro Retreat. Thanks for the hospitality David and Josette!
Three dozen world class wineries within a 10-mile radius.
