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.

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!
This was our first Airbnb experience and it well exceeded our expectations. The place was even better than the pictures, clean and very nicely decorated. We had everything we needed, including a fridge stocked with eggs and such. The bed was very comfortable. Honestly, Pamela thought of everything. If you plan to visit Sonoma or Napa, we would highly recommend this place.
My husband and I just left Pamelas bungalow today..we had a wonderful stay at her place. The house is super cute and the full kitchen is very convenient. I had a lot of questions and she was very helpful, her dog Haywood is super friendly and we enjoyed having him around. If we return to the area we would definitely stay here again!
Pamela greeted us warmly and we found our cottage clean quiet and comfortable. The interiors were artfully decorated and, had it been cooler, we would have taken more advantage of the outdoor dining and hammock. The quiet neighborhood is away from the congestion of the central square but easy to access.
We would be happy to stay there again
Pamela greeted us shortly after we arrived and was very friendly. All was as described/pictured including the friendly dog.
The nice outdoor space was a bonus.
My boyfriend and I just returned from an amazing vacation staying at Pamela's bungalow. The bungalow was everything we were looking for and more! Impeccably decorated home, lovely (and large) backyard with a hammock and Adirondack chairs for relaxing, and an adorable dog to play with. Pamela was so welcoming and a great host. She provided us with some excellent recommendations for local restaurants and things to do. And when we were in search of blankets and lawn chairs to attend an outdoor movie at the wine country film festival, she happily let us borrow hers. I would recommend this wonderful, perfectly located little hideaway to anyone looking to explore wine country!
We had a glorious time at Pamela's place. It's a lovely respite from a day of visiting wineries. The bed is soft and inviting and the place has an eclectic charm. Pamela has a fun, inventive decorating style. The hammock out back was the perfect place to relax at night. And the AC helped take the edge off two sweltering days. (It was 102 degrees our second day there.) Pamela has lots of terrific local knowledge to share about dining and other Sonoma possibilities. She's warm and welcoming. And her dog, Haywood, is a happy, bouncy joy. Highly recommended.

About the Host, Pamela
Hello, I'm Pamela, 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.
