About Christina Bonetti

Hi my name is Christina I have worked independently for 22yrs as a hair stylist in downtown. In my spare time I volunteer with Tuolumne Co. Sheriff's SAR (search and rescue) . I invite you to visit Sonora and see the many reasons why I feel it's a truly lovely community.

Christina Bonetti purchased this bungalow in 1998

Why Christina Bonetti chose Dodge Ridge

In 1980 I moved to Sonora from San Diego Co. Though I missed the ocean and beaches, I quickly fell in love with the beauty and tranquility that Tuolumne Co. offered. I attended the local community college, set up my business and started putting down roots. The next step was a home. When I found my bungalow I feel instantly in love with it. It is the perfect place to come to at the end of the day, be it work or play!

What makes this bungalow unique

Being downtown is such a treat. Walking to restaurants, wine bars, theater. I am so proud to offer my home as a romantic vacation retreat or family get away. I know you will love to stay here for a long weekend or an extended stay. You'll find plenty to do – or maybe you'd just like breakfast in bed!

Great Location For Our Adventures

  • 5 of 5

Our family of three spent 2 nights in the Sonora downtown home. We were very pleased with the location. Easy walking distance to downtown Sonora and close driving distance to all of the areas sightseeing destinations. The home was updated and clean with loads of charm. The home was comfortable with a homey atmosphere. The home was close to a grocery store. It was convenient to pickup items for our meals. Since, the home is older I was concern about there being enough hot water for all of our showers. This was not an issue. Everyone had hot showers-not a problem. The home accommodated our family nicely. We enjoyed our stay and would like to return and explore more of the area. Thanks for letting us enjoy your beautiful home.

The home was lovely and a great location!

  • 5 of 5

Christina was a great hostess and provided some nice treats upon our arrival. The house has an inviting backyard with gas grill, patio lighting in a private setting. It is located within walking distance to good restaurants and pubs. The kitchen was completely stocked with anything and everything you can imagine. Didn't need a thing! Also there is a SafeWay grocery store (a few others as well) on a few miles away. Would rent again if ever in the area.

Family Trip

  • 5 of 5

Both the house and location were great. Good place to go off on day trips around the area (towns and Stanislaus National Forest). The parks on Routes 108 and 4 have a lot to offer and do not have the large crowds. The owners also has a lot of good tips and well as a beautiful house.
