About Janelle

We are a family living in San Francisco. We have two daughters.

Janelle purchased this villa in 2010

Why Janelle chose Sonoma County

We have always loved Sonoma County, and Sonoma in particular because it really feels unspoiled.

What makes this villa unique

Our outdoor space includes a concrete table for 10 shaded by olive trees, and a built-in charcoal barbecue. There is a bocce court in the middle of the olive orchard and a ping pong table in the studio. Sonoma Square, which is close by, is filled with great restaurants and shopping. Lovall Valley Road is one of the best bicycling routes in the Sonoma area. We have six hybrid bicycles, helmets and locks for your use during your stay.


Wine tasting at premier wineries are located within biking/walking distance including Ravenswood, Buena Vista, Sebastiani and Gundlach Bundschu

Great property for a family reunion

  • 4 of 5

Great place to relax and enjoy a break with a large group. Photos and descriptions are very accurate. Only reason for not giving a 5-star rating: we were there during a heatwave and the lack of AC made things a little uncomfortable at times.

Great Family Fun!

  • 5 of 5

For the last 5 years, we have rented a house in Sonoma during the month of August to escape the city fog. This house did not disappoint! It's so family friendly. The kids really enjoyed the grounds - plenty of swimming, bocce, and of course the game room with the ping pong table and the foosball. Every day we rode the provided bikes in to town for breakfast at Basque Cafe, and explored the town square. The main house has a great layout for hanging out too - spacious living room with big comfy leather couch. And the kitchen is good too. We prepared most meals inside, or BBQ'd, and then ate on one of the outside tables. Overall it was an awesome month - thank you for sharing your house with us!

Even better than the pics, perfect for a group!

  • 5 of 5

We are already trying to plan our next getaway back here!! It was simply the perfect place to stay.....staying a week was just about right. We felt like locals going down to the square every morning for our coffee and treats at the Basque bakery, some people walked, some rode the fabulous bikes provided. The food around Sonoma was phenomenal and the house and grounds were large enough for people to really spread out. Ever wonder how well a solar cover works on a pool? Wonder no more! It makes it quite toasty so I suspect even staying in Spring or Fall you can swim and be comfortable. There were 6 girls for a 50th birthday gathering and then a few of the husbands came in for the weekend and a few of the girls flew out. It was just the perfect spot and the owners were very responsive with the few quick questions we had. Book it fast!

Amazing home in a fantastic, central location

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a 3nt stay at Janelle's beautiful home and I already can't wait for the next visit. This was a girls trip for myself and 5 friends. The home was well laid out - more spacious than the pictures let on and the entertainment 'factor' was unbelievable. 3bdrms/2 ba in the main home w/another bdrm/ba/living area/kitchen in the cottage. The beds were very comfortable. The pool was gorgeous w/a good number of lounge chairs and plenty of beach towels to use at the house. Bocce court, bikes and outdoor space did not go unused. We had a blast at the place and hated leaving. Usually I'm pretty busy exploring Sonoma and the surrounding towns during my visits but this time... we largely stayed at the house because it was so comfortable, well laid out and just fun! If I could make any improvements - it would be for heated pool year-round (not a huge deal but would be a nice bonus) and a hot tub/Jacuzzi connected to the pool for the cooler nights. Regardless though - those factors would not stop me from renting the place again. Janelle was also wonderful to work with... thank you, Janelle, for your hospitality!

Awesome house in great location!

  • 5 of 5

6 of us recently stayed at this home for a girls weekend away. The house was lovely and was perfectly equipped for our vacation. Although we could not use the pool as it was still too cool, we did sit outside and enjoy the fire pit. The interior was perfectly spacious and we never felt crowded at all. The home is about 10 minutes drive to downtown Sonoma and many Sonoma wineries. It is about 30 minutes to Yountville and associated wineries. We had great luck with mynapavalleydriver.com and Barry specifically for anyone in search of a wine driver.

We enjoyed eating out at Girl and The Fig and El Dorado Kitchen though our dinner away at La Bottega was the group favorite. I highly recommend this home for couples, families (there is a fun play room with foosball and the backyard bocce) and ladies outings!
