About The Owner

I love to run and cycle...great place for both of those, and mountain biking too.

I also love to cook and entertain and find the house to be very conducive with the kitchen being the center of the house.

The Owner purchased this house in 2008

Why The Owner chose Sonoma County

We love Sonoma---it is a beautiful town with a soul. A community that is second to none and all the best of the wine country.

Wonderful Sonoma Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

My family & I (5 adults, 2 children) stayed at Dave's house for a long weekend & it was just perfect! The interior of the house is beautiful. Very spacious & welcoming. It's the little touches that make it feel like home -- the pantry full of essentials like sugar & spices, the piano in the living room, the games in the den, the books & magazines (which I really appreciated since I accidentally left all of my kids' books at home!). There are a lot of different rooms for people to spread out in & the dining room is a good size for a large group. The beds are all very comfortable!

The pool area is inviting & relaxing, with a lot of different seating options. I enjoyed eating breakfast out there in the quiet cool mornings & relaxing there at night. The pool is surprisingly large.

The home is close to the heart of Sonoma -- about a 5 minute drive -- so it was easy to get in and out of town.

Dave was a pleasure to deal with -- responsive to emails & calls & very accommodating. This home was a wonderful find! My kids (ages 3 & 6) are ready for a return trip to Sonoma & are begging to stay in this house again.

great place

  • 5 of 5

We had a large group here, aged 2 to 82, for a wedding weekend. The place was wonderful - immaculate, stocked with everything we needed, great pool. Dave was a gracious and helpful host. Would love to come back for a longer stay!

Amazing weekend in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a long weekend trip to Sonoma, and had such a wonderful time at Dave's home. Not only is the house perfect for a getaway, it is in a prime location (just a few miles from Sonoma Plaza) and has a gorgeous backyard oasis.

Dave was so easy to work with, and readily available either by phone or email. We grilled steaks the first night we were there, as he left us with charcoal and grill to use, and enjoyed dinner at the outdoor table.

Saturday we were a little "tired" from our weekend activities, so spent most of our day floating in the pool and napping in the very comfortable hammock and lounge furniture.

Dave also left great recommendations for us, and the check in and out process was a breeze.

I have stayed in Sonoma several times before, and have rented other houses through VRBO, but I will only stay here from here on out :)

Great place -all around

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here over Father's Day as I had a wedding in town - there were 8 of us family members in the house - from infant to grandparents. There was plenty of room to spread out, with two family rooms in addition to the bedrooms. The outside space was also great, and we enjoyed hanging out in the pool and eating dinner outside. We were able to visit several close-by wineries and easily get to town - close enough to go by bicycle. Some of us also went jogging right from the house and found some good country roads nearby. The house was in good condition and everything was clean and functioning. We had a question about operating the pool filter, which was answered by the owner very fast. The owner was responsive and clear in all communications prior to arriving and throughout the process

Overall, it was a great weekend, and we all want to go back.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house while we were in Sonoma for a wedding and it was perfect. The house was only a few minutes drive from downtown. The house was clean, fit our large group comfortably and the kids loved the pool! I would rent this house again.

Wonderful time

  • 5 of 5

This house was a hit! Big thank you to the family for sharing it with us.

I stayed with a group of friends at this house for a long weekend. It had everything we needed for the weekend including a kitchen-aid!! There was room for a few cars which was helpful as we arrived on separate days/flights. They even left pool floaties out for us to use and we were pretty lazy after running the 1/2 marathon.

The kitchen had ample space for cooking & hanging which is good because everyone was always in the kitchen! We enjoyed dinners both outside & in and we never had to worry about space.

The owner left us with a lot of helpful information regarding the house/internet use/local cabs/vineyards. Sonoma town center was 3 miles away & we were surrounded by farm stands & vineyards. Not to mention the edible landscaping – so helpful to have easy access to lemons!

All in all a wonderful place to stay in a perfect location!
