About this listing

Description

The space

Please read this about our minimum night stay: We have a five night minimum in April through end of May. We may occasionally do fewer nights if it falls in the weekdays. We have a one week minimum from June 12 through August 20. From August 20 through end of October we have a five night minimum. From beginning of November until end of March, we have a four night minimum but we would consider three night rental depending on the specific weekend. During 4th of July, Labor Day, Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years, we have a one week minimum.

Description: You will find here all top quality finishes, appliances, furniture, and amenities. Enjoy a brand new heated swimming pool and built in hot tub. Enjoy outdoor lounge areas, large teak outdoor table under a trellis with grape vines, bocce ball court, and more. For kids, there are endless activities including swimming pool, outdoor playground (swings, monkey bars, etc), ping pong table, biking and more.

This is the perfect location in the wine country. It is very quiet and green. This home is 2 miles east of the Sonoma Square. You have access to all top quality wineries, most of them walking distance. Ravenswood, Buena Vista Winery, Sebastiani, Bartholomew, Gundlach Bundschu and other top wineries are a short walk or bike ride away. Of all wine country destinations, this location also is the closest to San Francisco, only 40 minutes away.

Enjoy a glass of Sonoma Pinot Noir on the deck, lounge by the pool, and enjoy an evening with the stars in the hot tub, all in an extremely private setting.

Guest access

There is ultra fast wifi throughout the property, next to the pool, in all rooms and throughout the garden.

Other things to note

Unlike all the homes I personally stayed in the Sonoma Valley, this house is not built as a rental. Most rental homes in Sonoma look nice in pictures but are worn out when you visit them. They have old furniture, uncomfortable beds, dirty pools, etc. (no matter how nice they look in pictures). In contrast, this is a brand new home, built by the owners for the owners. We rent it only a fraction of the year. As such, it has all top of the line finishes, grounds, pool, furniture, kitchen, etc. The people who rented through other websites have said that this is the best house they have ever stayed in the wine country by far!

Here's the bedroom configuration:
Bedroom 1: King size bed with its own bathroom
Bedroom 2: Queen size bed, plus a bunk bed. Upper bunk is twin and lower bunk is full.
These two bedrooms above are each the size of two bedrooms, they are very big.

Bedroom 3: Queen size bed with its own dedicated bathroom.
Bedroom 4: Two twins plus a twin trundle bed. These two twins can be put together for couples
Bedroom 5: This room is right next to the main house but is detached. It has a brand new queen sized bed and en-suite bathroom. Perfect for privacy.

Bedroom 6: There is a brand new Room and Board sleeper. This queen size sleeper is just as comfortable (if not more comfortable) than regular beds.

The main house has four bathrooms. Two in the bedrooms and two to be shared. The detached room has its dedicated bathroom.

Important: Owner is severely allergic to pets. So absolutely no pets allowed. If you have a service animal, please disclose before requesting reservation.


House Rules
No smoking
Not suitable for pets
No parties or events
Check in is anytime after 4PM

We will ask you to sign "noise pledge" once you make the reservation confirming that you are OK with the following bullet points. If you are not OK with them, please do not reserve this house.

•No outdoor music at any time of the day
•There is a strict noise ordinance in Sonoma after 10:00pm. Please enjoy our back yard or front yard until 10:00pm. After 10:00pm, take your group inside the house.
•No more than 12 people at night and 16 people during day are permitted at the property.
•No more than 5 cars are allowed at our property. Please do not park at Lovall Valley Court. Please park the cars in our property.

If we receive a complaint from any of our neighbors you will forfeit your security deposit and you will be asked to vacate the property.

No smoking in the property. The maple dining table in the living room is very expensive. Please wipe off any stains immediately and do not use hard objects on it. Also do not put burning hot items on the table directly. Hot tub is for adults only. You are responsible for keeping kids and adults away from the swimming pool and hot tub if they are not water safe. It takes only a few minutes for the hot tub to heat up to 100+ degrees after turning it on. Please do not keep it on when you are not using it. Keeping the hot tub on for a long time consumes hundreds of dollars of electricity in one day. Also it cuts the water circulation of the main pool and stops the self cleaning process for the swimming pool. Only turn the hot tub on when you are using it. Please keep the pool covered when you are not using it. The button to close and open the pool is by the kitchen, outside. If you'd like to manually heat the pool the additional cost is $100/day. In shoulder months and summer, the solar heat automatically heats up the pool at no extra charge. There is no additional charge to heat the hot tub all year long. Please use only plastic glasses outside. Do not take any glass outside especially by the pool. No adults by the play structure. Play structure is designed for kids. The beams may not support anyone more than 125 pounds. This house can not accommodate more than 16 guests during the day and 12 people at night as per the wine country regulations. All the houses on the east side of Sonoma County are on a septic system. Please throw only one cut of toilet paper at a time. This is a fragile septic system. There are trash bins in each of the five bathrooms. Please use these bins for excess toilet paper. Due to liability and regulatory restrictions, trampoline, firepit, and zip-line are not for guest use. Trash day is Monday in our neighborhood. If you are staying over Sunday night, please take the trash out to the side of the street Sunday night. Please put the trash bins next to our mailbox 19380. Make sure that the trash lids' opening face the street. Trash trucks arrive Monday early morning. Please take the trash back in Monday afternoon if you are staying on Monday. Please drive slowly at the court. Please check the sparetheair website to see if it is legal to burn wood during your stay at the fireplace inside. There are certain days throughout the year when it is illegal to burn wood. They are posted at this website.

You agree that Thursday afternoons landscape maintenance people come for a short visit to take care of the grounds (mow the lawn, etc). You agree to not deny them access. Same with pool maintenance person who comes once a week to ensure that pool chemicals are in good condition.

exactly as advertised, beautiful home, grounds and located centrally in wine region. about 45 drive to large napa valley wineries, though there are several wineries within 5-10 minute drive of house. Town has everything you need including 24 hr grocery store. Open kitchen which was great for large group meals. easy communication and checkin/ check out. would stay again

If you're looking for a super relaxing, no-fuss weekend away from the city, this may not be the best spot for your group. Take a very close look at the long list of, well communicated, yet, restrictive rules (from how much toilet paper you can use to how long you can be outside). At this price point, think very hard about whether or not all of the rules will allow your group to have a good time. The host communicated very well, check in was a breeze, and the property is very accurately depicted in the listing.

Response from Bora:
Gary, you and your group flew drones all around the neighborhood and on top of neighbors' private yards and their vineyards according to our neighbors. We have great neighbors but they were understandably apprehensive when they noticed flying objects. When I requested you guys to stop, you were upset and hence the only non-five-star review. After you guys, cleaning people complained about the extra mess. We go out of our way to please guests but it is upsetting to see that you and your group were utterly disrespectful not only to the house but the whole community there. I do not wish to rent to you again in the future..

Very quiet neighborhood and great park like setting. Convenient to get to Sonoma and to Napa. All in all a wonderful home that all in our party greatly enjoyed.

We had a wonderful experience at this property and would highly recommend it! The home is spacious and airy and the layout and floor plan worked perfectly! We were traveling with young children and the home was perfect--we especially appreciated that the pool had a safety cover and that the yard was such a beautiful place to play, relax, and eat. The location is also super convenient to downtown but the house feels quite private. Bora was really responsive and helpful and everything that you'd want in a host. We would definitely book here again. Thanks Bora!

First time using the Air BnB service, and I expected it to be professional and well stocked and serviced. Bora exceeded my expectations. I'm pretty yuppie, and consider the Four Seasons camping, so when I say I loved this place I mean it! Everything was there that you needed, and all was top notch. Mattresses were very good in full size rooms, and the grille worked great. Nice to have had HBO as well so I didn't miss GOT! This place is a bargain, but don't tell Bora that... I don't want him to raise the prices!

The best Airbnb property I've ever rented. Better than the photos or description. This house was built with an eye for detail and well equipped for a group or several couples. We did not want for anything. Very pleased with our experience. Would rent again and again.

We held a family reunion at Bora's house in Sonoma recently and we could not have been more happy with the place. The house and grounds are quite beautiful but very functional as well. Every amenity needed to make our stay very enjoyable. Bora was very quick to answer questions that arose. I would highly recommend this house and Bora to anyone looking for the Sonoma experience! Thank you Bora!!!
