The Space

Our house is located in the Hood Mountain Regional Park, a couple miles above St Francis Winery with wonderful views of Kenwood and St Francis Winery. There are hiking trails right outside the house gate to the peak of Hood Mountain and Sugar Loaf. There are plenty of wineries along Highway 12. Downtown Sonoma, Russian River Valley and Napa are all within 30-minute drive. Bring or rent bicycles if you are adventurous.

We live between this Sonoma house and our San Francisco apartment with our less than 1 year old twins. Because of a couple of bad experiences with renters last year, we are now very selective and careful who we rent to this year. We do prefer renters who understand and respect that this is our house and not a hotel, as most home owners would do the same.

For groups who want a bit more comfort and privacy, there is a 4th bedroom with its own bathroom available for rent as an additional charge to renting this 3 bedroom 2.5 bathroom house. It's available for $180 additional per night. Please let me know if you want this addition or not in your request. Thanks!

While we do have solar panels to generate most of our electricity, we would still like to remind you to turn off lights when you don't need them. You might also want to check out the stars with our equipment if you can figure out how to work them without breaking them.

We don't have cable nor Internet. We have a plasma TV but not a DVD player. We don't watch TV any more. It's time to really enjoy wine country and the wonderful company of those around you. Just in case you still need to stay connected, AT&T has great signal here so you will have to use your own cell phone as a hot spot.

If you do smoke, please do so outside and don't throw your cigaret butts everywhere. Please make sure they are put out before throwing them into the trash.

The house is completely separate but attached to the main house where my sister and her daughter live in. So you will have complete privacy.

There are 3 bedrooms with 2.5 bathrooms. Master bedroom has a king bed and the other 2 bedrooms have queen size beds. If you have children, please ask them not to jump on the beds, especially not on the antique Chinese wedding bed. The living room has large sectional sofa which can sleep 1 or 2 people. And the TV room has 2 sofas which can also sleep 2 people. If needed, I can also provide a queen size air mattress. We are only renting out the entire house with minimum 3 nights booking starting at $350 per night during low season and $450 per night during high season (mid-March to Thanksgiving).

There is a wood-burning fireplace insert in the TV room and a huge open wood-burning fireplace in the living room. We have plenty of the firewood within easy reach.

There is a swimming pool on our property but it is not heated and please be safe and use at your own discretion.

Just as a side perk... I own a few wine stores in Shanghai and know many winery owners in Sonoma and Napa personally. So if you wish, I can recommend a list of what I believe are some of the best value and quality wines in Napa and Sonoma.
