Overview

Sonoma House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 8-10

Only 1.5 miles from Sonoma's Historic Plaza in the most coveted East-Side neighborhood of Sonoma, this retreat is surrounded by vineyards and gorgeous country lanes leading to the Plaza - an easy walk or bike ride away. There are events every weekend at the Plaza and nearby are the finest restaurants in the Valley. The house is also ideally located for wine country touring in in all the valleys of Sonoma and Napa. Napa county is only 10 minutes away.

The property is located a block away from the historic Old Wine Road and walking distance to the most famous and oldest wineries of Sonoma. We offer 10 bicycles so you can explore the town and wineries. There are 9 adult bikes and 2 kids' bikes, including helmets and bike locks.

Set on a half-acre there is a large front lawn and porch as well as a large back lawn with a new pool and spa. The deck of the kitchen goes to the pool and a wisteria-covered arbor with outdoor fireplace and large outdoor dining table that seats 10. There is a stainless steel gas grill for outdoor cooking and entertaining. The pool has an automatic, recessed safety cover that keeps it clean and warm. Comfortable seating on all decks and porches, extensive lawns, large oaks trees and flowers provide a perfect setting for outdoor dining, pool time and relaxation.

Inside the house there is a large, open eat-in kitchen that is fully stocked with views through large sliding glass doors to the back yard. The large kitchen island can seat 8.

The living room has a fireplace and 42' flat screen TV complete with call cable channels. The living room bookcase is filled with books to read, including many wonderful books about Sonoma. There are board games and puzzles and a Bose sound system and dock to play your music. Stepping through the French doors from the living room is the outdoor dining area with fireplace for ideal indoor/outdoor entertaining.

The single level home is spacious and can sleep up to 10. We contemplate that large groups will include children and not more than 8 adults. There is a large master suite with king bed private master bathroom. The limestone master bath includes a soaking tub and separate shower with skylight. The guest bedrooms include one with a Queen bed, one with a Full size bed and one with four bunk-beds.

The mudroom has a large washer and dryer and there is a hair dryer and other amenities in the bathrooms for your convenience.

If you are interested in more room for a larger group, we offer another house for 6 right across the yard from this one. Please email owner if you are interested in booking both houses together.

Why Hilary Billings chose Sonoma County

We purchased this home in 2012 and just completed a full renovation of the property. Only 45 minutes from our home we love coming to Sonoma and enjoying the wonderful warm weather. There are events every weekend in the Town Square and so many things to do. We look forward to sharing this wonderful place with you!

Absolutely beautiful, spacious, modern home.

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I stayed here for my bachelorette party and toured the wineries. We all absolutely loved this house. It is spacious with a very large kitchen and plenty of room to sleep many people comfortably. The pool was wonderful, and we ate outside one night on the patio with the fireplace going! Not enough words can express how much we enjoyed our stay here!

The bikes was an added bonus! We biked to a winery and to downtown Sonoma!

A perfect stay in Sonoma at a wonderful house!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay in one of Hilary's homes. In a past year, we rented her smaller one, and this year we stayed in this larger one. Both are beautifully remodeled and maintained. She has such nice taste, and thinks of everything.

This August, we stayed at the larger house for four weeks. It was great! The location is very convenient to Sonoma Historic Square, and also for driving back to San Francisco if desired.

The furnishings are all new and very attractive, in a modern style that is pleasing and useful. I like the layout of the house. It's good....four bedrooms, well-laid out around the large kitchen and family room.

The pool is one of the best features, it is generously sized, and there is a hot spa with jets.

The yard is huge... we practiced our frisbee throwing. There are lots and lots of bicycles ready to ride in the garage.

The outdoor dining area is very large and includes a a gas grill.

Hilary is a really good owner, manages the property well, and is available for a quick question or email.

In summary, this is my favorite place in Sonoma for a modern, well-maintained property at a reasonable price, with all the conveniences, in a great location. Highly recommended!

Excellence in Sonoma

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful property. Hillary has a beautiful home with every amenity one could ask for when vacationing. She has thought every detail out and has provided the most comfortable living conditions. I can't say enough about it from the comfortable beds, the fully stocked kitchen, and the beautiful pool. You will not be disappointed. It's worth every penny!

Great location. Great house

  • 5 of 5

This house was just great for our family of six. Close to everything in Sonoma and an easy drive to Napa. Very modern kitchen that was the most well-appointed kitchen we have had in a house rented via VRBO. Kitchen had everything we could need including variety of pots and pans and spices. Pool was awesome and we spend most of our time while at the house in the pool and backyard - plenty of beach towels provided. Hilary, the owner, was very responsive and helpful. Beds and baths were clean and comfortable. We will be happy to rent this house again.

Wonderful Location & Get Away!

  • 5 of 5

We had the absolute best girls weekend away and this home was perfect! We lived outside at the pool. The home is in great condition with higher end items! We used the bikes for a fun group bike ride and had a blast (a few need some tune ups...). Can't wait to rent it again and return to the gorgeous California wine country! :)

Sonoma Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family and friends had a wonderful time in Sonoma. We enjoyed the beautiful house and accommodations. Very well maintained with a lot of amenities provided. The pool and hot tub were great after a day of wine tasting. Cooking in was great and we had enough plates, utensils for the family. Bikes were available to use. Hilary responded quickly with all our questions and a pleasure to deal with. Hopefully we can come back soon! I would highly recommend this home.
