About The Owner

Professional couple from San Francisco. We take great pride in our Sonoma home which we own for over 22 years. We looked for a home in Sonoma on and off for 10 years but could never find a home that felt right until we saw our home. We knew immediately that we wanted it.

Why The Owner chose Sonoma County

Sonoma is a lovely community: country yet sophisticated. It is 50 minutes from San Francisco and provides a great respit. Our children spent time there with school and birthday parties. Very kid friendly. Great restaurants and wineries close by.

What makes this house unique

Our house is completely private with lovely views and mature landscaping, including oaks, fruit trees, spruce trees and more. As soon as we walk through our gates, we feel as if we are on vacation and reality is light years away. Although we are close to the town of Sonoma, you would never know it when you are there. We maintain our house in pristine condition.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We love our home and it means a lot to us to read that our guests appreciate it. All the planning and hard work we have put into our home over the years is worth it when we receive these excellent reports. It is a pleasure to have such wonderful guests.

Great Location and Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

Recently stayed here as part of my first trip to Sonoma with 2 other couples. We had 6 adults and 1 Child and were more than comfortable in the space of the home. Each couple had their own private space and bathroom. Owner met us at the door on the day of arrival and showed us everything we needed to know and where everything was located. There was plenty of sheets, towels, and pillows in the rooms as well as all the basics provided (Kitchen items, bathroom items) plus some! Outdoor space was perfect for relaxing outside among the artwork, swimming in the pool and relaxing in the hot tub. The location was secluded enough where you didn't hear any of the neighbors, but close enough to the main road to get anywhere you needed to go. There was plenty of space at the end of the road to park the two rental cars we had as well as had a chef come in with 2 cars without blocking neighbors driveways. There were lots of notes around the house to remind you of the do's and don'ts (make sure you use coasters!) - however expected in order to keep their home nice and taken care of.

I did recommend to owner to make sure in all areas of the VRBO posting to note the correct price per night (which is $875) but payment was easy and I received my security check back in a timely manner. We would most definitely stay here again when we return to Sonoma. Thanks Diane and V.Roy for sharing your home!

Great Getaway for Out-Of-Town Group

  • 5 of 5

Lovely weekend! The main house feels cozy and homey, but with plenty of space to entertain and relax with a large group. Great kitchen stocked with lots of basics.

The property is close to highway but far enough to feel removed. I'd highly recommend for anyone looking to explore Valley of the Moon and surrounding areas.

Great family trip to Sonoma!

  • 5 of 5

This home away from home was a perfect place to spend 5 days of winter break with our two teens! The house was lovely, inside and out, peaceful and very comfortable for all. It is perfectly located, close to Sonoma with easy access to wineries and excellent restaurants and also central for day trips in Sonoma, Napa and Mill Valley. Lots for everyone to do! We also thank Ellen for her gracious hospitality. We'd love to return and stay again. We highly recommend this house for trips with family or friends!!

Girls weekend in Sonoma

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed in Ellen’s home for 4 days in October and it was perfect! There were 8 of us and there was a bed for everyone and we were all very comfortable. We spent the weekend wine tasting in Sonoma and Napa Valley, the location of this house was perfect. Ellen made the whole process easy! She has a beautiful home and I would definitely stay here again.

A great time in Sonoma

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 days at the house and enjoyed every minute of the time. It is perfectly located to jump off to all parts of Sonoma and Napa. The house offers plenty of room to spread out and relax after a long day of winery visits. The grounds are spectacular with lush landscaping, pool and hot tub. The art that is scattered throughout the yard adds a very interesting and unique addition to the experience. This would be perfect for family reunions or getting a group of friends together.

Beautiful and comfortable home in Sonoma

  • 5 of 5

I rented this property for a girls weekend getaway. There were 8 girls total. The house was beautiful, comfortable, and accommodated our large group perfectly. Everyone had a comfortable room to sleep in with plenty of access to bathrooms. The common area rooms were also very comfortable for a large group. The kitchen was roomy and fully stocked. The landscaping was beautiful and we found numerous outdoor areas on the property to sit outside and relax. Lastly, the location is quiet and tucked away on a nice street, but it is very close to the great wineries that Sonoma has to offer. The owners were extremely nice and pleasant to work with and I will certainly use this property in my future visits to the area.
