Barry is a retired executive and Bonnie is an active Interior Decorator. We bought the house with the original intention of fixing it and selling it but after we fixed it we actually fell in love with it and decided to keep it as a second vacation home. The idea of vacation rental came to us about six months later and we put it up on VRBO and never looked back. We keep a book of the before's and after's in the house and most of our guests get a great kick out of it. Bonnie is exceptionally creative in turning a house from, as we say, from 'OK to Oh Wow!' The pictures of our place before and after certainly demonstrate that creativity.

Barry Walner purchased this house in 2005

Sonoma has always been one of our favorite getaway locations and now that we have this Vacation home we can get there much more often. Because of the wine and olive oil industries, the community of Sonoma seems to have some sort of festival every week. We particularly enjoy the annual Sonoma Jazz Festival. Summers in Sonoma are magnificent, winters are quite mild, and spring an fall are absolutely spectacular. There is something very special about wine country in the fall during harvest which occurs through most of September and early October.

Great weekend in wine country

I brought my East Coast family in town for a visit to wine country, and this Sonoma home made for the perfect base to explore Sonoma. We loved the backyard and grill, which was perfect for a low-key barbecue after a day exploring the area. We also liked that the house was right near by Route 12, which made accessing the wineries easy, but also a short drive to downtown Sonoma. We had a party of four adults, and the house felt spacious enough for us all! Considering that the hosts were also fantastic, we highly recommend the house!

Weekend vacation

House is every thing as advertised and fully equipped for a comfortable stay. Barry was very helpful in recommending restaurants in Sonoma and the book in the kitchen lists the favorites. We tried a couple and were not disappointed. We visited a few wineries in Sonoma and also Jack London's home. All of the wineries were worth the visit and most did not charge or there was a very nominal fee. Napa was a disappointment, being too crowded and too commercial. Barry's suggestions for reasonable hotels in SF were also helpful as we finised our vacation there. We would definitely come back.

Centrally located house

The house was very comfortable and centrally located. We came up to Sonoma to wine taste and this was perfect. It was very clean and the kitchen was well appointed and the bar be que outside was great. The owner was very accessible when we called with a question and called us back right away. We would stay here again.

Valley of the Moon Wine Country Retreat is a formal way of saying, "The perfect, peaceful respite; well-appointed and conveniently central to the wine country." Bonnie and Barry are the most gracious hosts, generous in their welcome and thorough in their guidelines for what do and where to go. We've been here now 6 or 8 times and each and every time we want to stay for another week. Two comfy bedrooms, a great kitchen, wonderful backyard and a cozy living room. Perfect for two and still roomy for four (we shared a couple of long weekends with the parents). For a restful getaway to one of the most beautiful places on the planet, stay in this lovely home away from home.
