The space

Awww, Sonoma, beauty surrounds us...all within 5-10 minutes of your sweet Vintage Bungalow. Once you open the privacy gates, you can park directly across from the Bungalow. It is separate from the main house and studio with it's own private yard, adirondack chairs and bistro table that look out to the seasonal creek and oak trees. The entire property is fenced and feasible for dogs.
As a former French Antique importer, we've filled the interior with a modern mix of french antiques that will make your stay unique, comfy and airy. It is furnished with a
comfortable, beauty rest queen mattress, down comforter, extra pillows and blankets and if traveling with a child we can provide extra bedding and a french daybed upon request.
Full kitchen, fridge, gas stove, fully stocked with appliances so you can make your own meals and enjoy eating and sipping in our inviting, spacious backyard.

Guest access

We have a lovely outdoor area set up just for you or if you'd like to sit under the big oak tree, Willy, walk over the foot bridge and to the right is a picnic and bistro table up on the hill.

Interaction with guests

Our goal is to keep you happy and comfortable and private as possible, if there's anything you need, I am onsite some of the time, but I am ALWAYS available to help you by phone, text or email, anytime!

Getting around

There are two major airports, SFO & Oakland that you most likely be flying into. Sonoma is a smaller community and renting a car, limo service or driving your own is the most accessible way here. Once you've arrived there are many bike rental shops, even a vespa rental shop if you'd like!

Other things to note

***Like many wineries and spas, traffic can be busy and noisy. Please drive safely when you come to stay with us. Use your signal, slow down well before turning right, pull up closely to the gate marked with our address (just past the big palm tree). The privacy gate has a pull in the center, on the left. Lift up and push open from the center, repeat with right gate. Pull into a marked gravel space on right across from the cottage. Whenever entering or exiting, please close privacy gates behind you. Thanks!

As stated above, there is an assigned parking space for you directly across from the Bungalow, also have additional but limited offstreet guest parking if you'd like to entertain, please inquire.

Please be kind and respectful regarding noise to our neighbors to the south, do not disturb tenant in the main house. We are here for you anytime you have a question!

This place is such a gem! A beautiful experience overall. The place is cute and just perfect for a weekend getaway. It was an ideal location for a romantic weekend. Centrally located and really the perfect home away from home. Only wish we had more time to enjoy the backyard and cute creek/hammock during our stay. Ella was a doll and Mr. Hayward was super friendly. Will definitely be back!!!

Ella's bungalow is perfect for a Sonoma getaway. It is ideally located to many wineries and downtown Sonoma. The place itself is on a great property with a wonderful backyard. The bungalow is beautiful decorated, clean, and has nice touches like plush towels and a hammock in the backyard. I would highly recommend Ella's place.

Ella's space is so cozy and comfortable. Perfect for a long weekend with my husband and our little dog who were in town for a wedding. Ella has an AMAZING backyard that is so huge with a small creek running through it, lots of space for sitting, enjoying the beautiful trees, having a glass of wine, and playing fetch with our dog. Her dog Haywood was so friendly and always came up to greet us as we arrived at the gate. Loved seeing them playing fetch in the backyard. Wifi was strong, everything was super clean and very comfy, heater was great as well. She even had coffee and a fresh box of creamer and fresh fruit for us! We really enjoyed our stay and would come back. Super serene and peaceful, and well decorated :)

Hello, I'm Ella, your hostess and Haywood, the friendly puppy in the photo. We love living in the Bay Area, and after spending many years in San Francisco and traveling for work often to France, the move here makes it that much sweeter. I enjoy the wineries, of course, so many amazing and endless vineyards to explore. Cycling, hiking, and well, shopping are some of other favorite things to do here. Oh, the FOOD...everything is so farm fresh! I look forward to sharing our little haven and the Wine Country experience.
