About this listing
Surrounded by an secret garden from 1923 lies our two bedroom, one bath modern cottage. Newly renovated and professionally designed, this is a contemporary, yet cozy, Sonoma experience in the heart of wine country.
*Sonoma Occupancy License #1424N
On a residential street, a short drive to the Sonoma Square, and surrounded by the region's best wineries, restaurants, shops, parks and hiking/biking trails. This is a modern cottage in a neighborhood location.
Each of the two bedrooms has a plush Queen bed with a memory foam topper, and French doors opening out to a wrap around deck and garden. The bathroom has a double vanity, soaking tub and heated floors. The fully equipped chef's kitchen has Viking appliances, a dishwasher, quartz counters and views to the front garden. The dinning and living area flow seamlessly from the kitchen, with additional views of the greenery. There are stain glass windows, custom light fixtures and hardwood floors throughout.
In the back garden, under an antique apple tree are lounge chairs, recliners and umbrellas perfect for enjoying a book or soaking up the sun. Beneath an old plum tree stands a family-style dinning table. Enjoy breakfast in the front garden with the sound of the rock fountain and the smell of jasmine and roses.
A bottle of wine and fresh flowers welcome you. PEET's French Press coffee and espresso, as well as selection of teas, are provided. Two bicycles, wi-fi, HDTV cable, HBO, and board games are furnished for your entertainment.
For guests who need accommodation for a fifth person, the living room's platform sofa can be used as a single bed when the back cushions are removed.
Guests have access the main part of the house, but are restricted from the side unit and shed.
Interaction with guests
We greatly appreciate forthcoming communication with guests, as we hope to avoid surprises and unmet expectations.
The home is located in the flat western part of the town of Sonoma, a residential area only a 5-10 minute drive to the Sonoma Square (1.6 miles). It is the more recently developed part of town that is mostly residential. While it is a corner unit, there are other neighborhood homes to its left and back and of course across the street. This part of Sonoma does not have side walks, so driving usually is the best option.
Bringing a car would probably be best, as there is not much public transportation easily available. Car services can be hired if needed. Uber services the area.
