We joyfully lived in Casa de Luna for a year, while our new home was being built. This unique and coveted location is only a 15 minute walk, 5 minute bike ride and .5 mile drive to downtown Sonoma Square. It is quiet, peaceful and has everything you need to live for a month or a lifetime.
Behind the cottage, there are mountain and meadow views, surrounded by flower gardens, olive and fruit trees, starry skies and full moons. A serene country setting, for both friends and family, is the ideal getaway.
The Casa de Luna is a specially crafted cottage, situated on one acre and located in the heart of the city of Sonoma. The exclusive cottage offers designer style living in 840 square feet, with field and mountain views from a beautiful patio in the rear. Casa de Luna cottage consists of two major buildings, connected by a breezeway. The cottage is located in the rear of our property with complete privacy and security. Parking is next to the cottage. it is .5 miles to town and a 15 minute walk. The cottage is next to the bike trail, for easy access to restaurants, wineries and the Town Square.
It is also an easy driving distance to some of the most scenic areas of the country...San Francisco (45 minutes), the North coast of Mendocino (one hour), Lake Tahoe (3 hours) and Yosemite ( 3 hours).
Availability still to book your cottage now for the 2013 Sonoma Wine Country Weekend event from August 30-September 1!
This property is fab. Very comfortable, charming and clean. Jim and Diane are great hosts. This place is the best of both worlds, fairly close to the square (1.5 miles) yet rural with chickens and other farm animals out back on adjoining property. We plan to come back in summer in order to utilize the outdoor space as well as walking to the square. Loved it.
Loved staying at Jim and Diana's cottage this fall! The house is close enough to town to walk to dinner but far enough away to get a "country" feel and enjoy the autumn colours. The cottage is comfortable and tastefully decorated with everything you need for a long or short stay. I would highly recommend Casa de Luna to friends and family!!
Once you figure out the two-structure routine, this is a fantastic place to stay. So much room, so serene, yet 2-minutes from downtown Sonoma.
Jim & Diane are perfect hosts, attentive and non-intrusive.
This was absolutely a perfect getaway. Of the many many properties we've stayed at with VRBO this was the one we like the most. Close enough to walk into the square, but also private with a rural feel. We made a fire each night and sat outside with a bottle of wine. Excellent hosts, they even shared the eggs from the chickens! Very comfortable furnishings, could not have asked for more. We hope to return soon.
We stayed at this property for four nights in September. We really loved our stay and the cottage. It was so nice to have a "home" that was so close to downtown (Sonoma Plaza and great restaurants) yet secluded enough to provide a private and peaceful back yard. We were able to have our own space for relaxing and enjoying a glass of wine for the sunsets, and breakfasts on our patio before heading out for the day.
The rooms were clean and well kept. Jim and his wife were very hospitable hosts who were always happy to provide suggestions for touring the area and good restaurants.
We would definitely stay here again next time in Sonoma. Thanks for a great stay !
