Overview

Sonoma County Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bed, 2 bath, sleeps 4

This cottage is everything you would hope for and more than you would expect. The moment you arrive, you are destined for the perfect vacation.

The ambiance here is serene and quaint, as well as comfortable and meticulously clean, with private gardens that are lush and peaceful providing the perfect area to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet of nature. A majestic old Oak tree provides the perfect canopy to enjoy Sonoma weather with your favorite coffee or cocktail. Grilling is easy with a Weber Propane barbeque and all the tools.

The kitchen is fully equipped and ready for you to enjoy snacks or prepare your favorite meal with all stainless steel 'Frigidaire Professional Gallery' appliances.

The dining room looks out onto Star Jasmine, Japanese Maple and a lovely Live Oak Tree. The perfect setting for a romantic dinner.

The living room has a gorgeous slate, gas burning fireplace; just the right touch for a chilly Sonoma evening. Just for your enjoyment is a 42' HD TV, along with CD and iPod docking station and player. A collection of CD's awaits your listening pleasure. A small library is also available with a nice selection of reading material. Open the French doors and enjoy bringing the outside in, while you have you first cup of coffee or tea. Coffee and tea are complimentary as well as a selection of condiments and spices.

Each bathroom has fluffy, and plush Bath Sheets, an assortment of towels in addition to hair dryers. Also provided for each guest are individual Rosemary & Mint Spa quality facial soaps, shampoo, hair conditioners, shower gel and body lotion by Essential Elements.

The en suite bath off the Master Bedroom has a spacious walk-in shower featuring a wonderful rain shower head and infrared heat lamp to keep you warm and cozy.

Each bedroom has a flat screen HD TV with all cable channels. Free WIFI and telephones with free long distance.

Each Queen size bed is outfitted with deluxe pillow top mattresses, soft white down comforters and high thread count plush linens. Extra pillows and blankets are also provided for your extra comfort.

Complete privacy or filtered light is enhanced with the lovely Plantation Shutters gracing the windows in every room.

A washer and dryer is conveniently located in the garage for extended stays as well as laundry detergent and dryer conditioners.

The cottage has an excellent history of very satisfied quests as evidenced by the guestbook on the fireplace hearth, while owned and operated as KoKo's Classic Cottage. I will do my best to maintain KoKo's excellent standard and work hard to earn your positive comments.

The yard is professionally maintained on a weekly basis.

The exterior of the home is just as immaculate as the interior. As a 'hands on' owner- manager I will take the utmost care to insure the home is thoroughly cleaned after each guest. My calendar is always accurate and updated daily.

Fully approved, permitted and compliant with Sonoma County Permit and Transient Occupancy Tax Departments.

For activites, you are just 2 1/2 miles from Sonoma Square where you'll enjoy wonderful restaurants, wine tasting, farmers market, shopping and shows. Within a short walking distance of the cottage are several neighborhood restaurants and eateries including Big 3 Diner owned and operated by the Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn. You can actually walk to the Fairmont for a spa treatment (4 minutes) from home. The Barking Dog Coffee Roasters is also just down the street. Highway 12 is close by and you can cruise up toward Santa Rosa and Kenwood and stop along the way at numerous wineries and tasting rooms. During this beautiful drive be prepared to take photos of the amazing sites and the wildlife you may chance to encounter.

If you are an early riser, take a moment to quietly sit in the yard and observe the family of deer that meanders up the road nibbling away on various brush and vegetation. A peaceful sight you are sure to remember.

Pleasantly Surprised!

  • 5 of 5

Before this stay, we had never used VRBO for lodging. However, we thought the Cottage might be a better option for visiting with family in the area. The Cottage had everything we needed for our stay and was clean. The additional living areas, both inside the cottage and outside in the courtyard, were great for visiting. The property manager was very helpful with everything starting before arrival through departure. The area was convenient to Sonoma area attractions and provided a good starting point for each day's travels. We felt safe and comfortable at this location. Given the opportunity, we would stay here again.

Cute place!

  • 4 of 5

Kit's Classic Cottage was perfect for two couples staying two nights.

We enjoyed our time in the backyard all afternoon. It was delightful!

While we didn't spend much time inside, the kitchen was well-appointed and we played music via the TV in the family room.

If you are looking for a place to call home for a few days while in the area, you'll be thrilled with Kit's Cottage. It was simple and charming on a tiny street that was exactly what we were looking for.

Lovely Wine Country Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Kit's cottage is super cute and cozy. The perfect size for 4 people (2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms). It's very nicely decorated. I loved the outdoor patio space too, great for sitting outside and enjoying some wine. I thought the beds and linens were all super comfy. Overall it was a very nice and relaxing place to stay.

Heidi, the property manager, was very helpful and quick to respond. Just a short distance from downtown Sonoma and conveniently located for visiting plenty of wineries. Overall this was a great place to stay.

Impressed all!

  • 5 of 5

When my friends walked into the home, all of them said, "good job"! They were so happy with the home. Some of my other friends who stayed at another vacation rental came over for breakfast and were very impressed. Beautiful wood floors in the master bedroom and lots of upgrades throughout. I enjoyed the lush and serene backyard while having my morning coffee. And I love the rainfall shower in the master bathroom. I would definitely come back.

Sweet Cottage in Sonoma

  • 5 of 5

Last weekend along with my husband, daughter & son-in-law, I spent two nights at Kit's Classic Cottage. Because my parents home in Sonoma was filled with other out of town family members, attending my sister's wedding, I turned to VRBO.

At the front door, we were already sure that we had found the type of accommodations we had hoped for. The decor and ambiance was delightful. The kitchen was well stocked. The beds were comfortable, bathrooms attractive and well supplied. Although we didn't turn them on, there were 3 TV's available. A gas fireplace in the living room in addition to the nice furnishings, provided a great space to read or enjoy a glass of wine. The patio is private and has a couple of different seating areas. I am very particular when it comes to cleanliness and was very pleased with the condition of this home.

The woman who manages the property was really on the ball. She contacted me several times prior to our arrival and my deposit has already been returned.

We couldn't have been happier and I have already shared the information to friends who plan to visit Sonoma.

Don't miss the Mexican ice cream shop on Highway 12. It's homemade and delicious!

Quiet and cozy

  • 5 of 5

We spent three nights at Kit’s Cottage last weekend and it was great. As soon as we walked in we felt at home. The cottage is spotless and well stocked. The size of the cottage and the two queen bedrooms were perfect for two couples. We were happy to have the lovely terrace at the end of our long days and the fireplace made it cozy when the temperature dipped down at night. There are several small grocery and produce stores within a few blocks where you can pick up anything you need. The quiet location is perfect for day trips to the various wine regions, many state parks and a nice healthy walk into Sonoma square. Some highlights of our weekend included dining at LaSalette in Sonoma, hiking through Armstrong Redwoods state park, tasting wines at Arista winery and strolling their beautiful gardens, and renting bikes and riding through Napa Valley’s picturesque trails. We thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend and highly recommend Kit’s Cottage. Thanks to Bonne and Heidi for their quick response to our inquiry, for personally making sure we had everything we needed and for taking such good care us and the cottage.
