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.
If you would like to bring your dog, a $45 pet cleaning fee is required, left by either check or cash with us. It is completely fenced but please do not allow them to wander unsupervised.
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!
Pets need to be picked up after, there is a gray garbage can on the NW side of the property (by the big pine tree).
Smoking is allowed in your backyard area only, please make sure they're out and dispose in the little cans on the stumps.
Though a cleaning fee is paid by you, it's very much appreciated if you do your own dishes. It helps keep the cleaning fee low! Thanks so much!
The gate needs to be closed when coming and going for your privacy.
That's it...see you soon!
We were delighted that Pamela responded to our last minute booking request. On the evening of our arrival she was available on the first call to guide me to the precise location (I had misplaced the street number). Once we got situated in the bungalow Pamela called to make sure everything was OK. From there on we were on our own (as we wanted to be). The accommodations were great, beautiful decor, warm comfy bed, good heater and great view out to the backyard. We felt at home here and the bungalow, with all its eclectic accouterments, exceeded our expectations.
This was a lovely place. The separate guest house allowed for privacy. The place was very clean, warm, and welcoming. We would love to stay here again!
Pamela and her place were both lovely!! This was exactly what we were hoping for and her listing/description are spot on. Such a relaxing environment and she was nearby to help us in any way. We had an amazing stay and hope she'd have us back if we head to Sonoma in the future!
I was lucky enough to stay at the bungalow this past weekend and couldn't have asked for a better experience. Pamela was a warm and inviting host who went out of her way to make my girlfriend and me welcome. It was a perfect location that had an intimate feel. There was a lovely backyard complete with a babbling brook and a cozy hammock.
If I had to choose a place to stay again I would choose this place 10 out of 10 times.
I stayed at Pamela's vintage guest bungalow with my sister this past weekend and it was perfect!! The bungalow was just like the pictures - beautiful furniture, fun style, and thoughtful touches throughout. We didn't end up cooking any meals but the kitchen was fully stocked. I only wish we'd had better weather in Sonoma so we could have enjoyed the outdoor space looking over the creek!
Check in and out was easy, plus my sister and I enjoyed talking to Pamela (and her cute dog!) and getting a few local recommendations. Both of us were new to Sonoma and felt comfortable knowing we could reach out with questions. Convenient location to the the main part of town and many of the local wineries. Can't wait for a return trip to Sonoma and Pamela's guest bungalow!!
Pamela was super quick with her responses. The cottage was great fun to stay in; we kept finding neat little touches everywhere we looked. It was very comfortable!
We had a fantastic stay at Pamela's.
The bungalow was completely charming and there was a lovely attention to detail with the décor. The quality coffee and magazines were much appreciated as was the affectionate resident dog.
It was the perfect place to discover the Sonoma region, Pamela was a lovely host and we would definitely stay at the bungalow again.

Hello, I'm Pamela, your hostess and Haywood, the friendly puppy in the photo. Like you, I love to travel as well...airbnb is great! 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 my favorite things to do here. Ok, I LOVE SPAS too. Oh, the FOOD...everything is so farm fresh! I've worked in the home & design industry for many years and there are amazing shops that shouldn't be missed...I may have to open a tour group! I Love living here and look forward to sharing our little haven and the Wine Country experience.
