Space 400 sq. ft.
Property type guest house
Minimum Stay 1 - 25 nights


About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, 2 Sleeps

Enjoy a slice of the Sonoma life in this charming in-law unit. It's great for eating in or relaxing on the garden patio before dinner reservations. Many amenities are within walking distance and its just a few minutes drive to great wineries and the historic downtown Sonoma Plaza. I have many favorable reviews on another well-known rental site, but am deciding to move to VRBO instead, so don't let the lack of reviews stop you for now.

This charming unit is on my home property, so lovingly cared for. It's comfortable, clean and the perfect place for a couple's hideaway in wine country or someone needing a home away from home. Patio is inviting and neighbors are friendly.

Living/Dining space with kitchen and all the supplies you might need. Large single bedroom and bathroom.

The patio and garden are a great place to sit and enjoy a glass of wine while watching friendly neighbors out walking their dogs. Recently added a couple of Adirondack chairs and small table with an umbrella in the garden.

A local favorite breakfast cafe is just a 30-second walk away, or if you prefer just coffee in the morning, the unit has a Keurig coffee maker with a selection of coffees provided. If you enjoy a walk in the morning to get coffee and pastries, another local favorite, Barking Dog Roasters, is just a 2 minute walk.

For the ultimate in relaxation, the Spa at the Sonoma Mission Inn Fairmont Hotel is also just a 2 minute walk. A variety of restaurants and small markets are also within walking distance.

About Christine

After living in San Francisco for 15 years I wanted the quieter, slower-paced life of wine country! It has lived up to all my expectations and now I am happy to have the opportunity to share it with visitors to the area. I live on the property (the rental is an in-law unit to the house), so I take pride in caring for the property. After many years in the software business I decided to shift careers and am now a Certified Specialist of Wine and work at a local winery. I've traveled all over the world and am now very happy to call Sonoma home--which is like being on a permanent vacation!

Christine purchased this guest house in 2014

Why Christine chose Sonoma

I settled in Sonoma because I wanted to live the "wine-country" life and it has been great. I purchased this property after living in the area for a while. I loved the house as soon as I saw it because it met all my needs, plus had an in-law unit. The neighborhood is wonderful with a very nice mix of neighbors from different backgrounds who are all really friendly and always up for a chat when out walking.

What makes this guest house unique

There is a patio in the garden with a table, umbrella and chairs, which are perfect for relaxing with a glass of wine or for dining outside. You can cook in after shopping at some of the markets within walking distance or driving to larger stores in the area or you can select from restaurants within walking distance with several options for take out food or fine dining. A breakfast and lunch place and a coffee house are just a block away.

Nice place and location, deposit refund too slow

  • 3 of 5

Well appointed place and quiet neighborhood.

10am checkout is too early especially considering the region.

$1500 damage deposit is excessive and 17 days after checkout still not refunded.

Owner was responsive and sent great details before check in. Will consider increasing rating dependant upon refund outcome.

Quiet, relaxing spot in Sonoma

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for our week long stay in Sonoma. For the two of us, there was plenty of room and everything was well maintained. It is walking distance to a nice breakfast place, and less than a 10 minute drive to the Plaza. The patio area was a perfect place to unwind at the end of the day. We would stay here again!
