Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Charming studio plus separate cozy cottage, zen garden and patio under the redwoods. Quiet, comfortable, super clean. Minutes from Sonoma's historic plaza and wine tasting. A perfect sanctuary for a group of 1 - 4 guests. Enjoy our Be Happy hideaway, designed for visiting artists, writers, business travelers, adventurers, world explorers and wine lovers! For important details about the unique layout, including bathroom access, amenities and discounts, see photos and "read more about the space."

The space
For a group of 1-4 guests, the property consists of two private, separate bedrooms (Main Studio and Cottage), connected through a charming garden pathway and a peaceful patio, surrounded by redwoods, greenery, and open sky. It's a perfect place for a small group that is close to each other and doesn’t mind sharing a bathroom. For the guests staying in the cozy cottage, it's only a 24-second (less than 1/2 minute) stroll through the garden path to your shared group bathroom, located inside near the Main Studio. There is a shower/soaking tub, washer/dryer, iron, and hairdryer for your convenience.

Both Main Studio and Cottage have a queen-sized bed, wifi, and cable TV. There is no kitchen, but each room has a mini-fridge, electric hot water kettle, coffee/tea, bottled water, fresh fruit, breakfast bars, instant oatmeal, and healthy treats. Air conditioner/heater are installed in both Main Studio and Cottage.

When you arrive...
Open the gate to your private hideaway and this place is all yours.
The entrance to the Main Studio and bathroom is three short steps on your right. Or, continue walking through the garden pathway to the cozy cottage and patio under the redwoods. Have your coffee/glass of wine on the intimate brick patio with outdoor table/seating. The peaceful garden and patio offer an inspiring setting for conversation, listening to the birds sing their hearts out, or gazing at the stars.
**We support CDC cleaning guidelines, social distancing, and masks **
For your comfort and health, we use earth-friendly soaps, shampoo, organic non-fragrance cleaning products. Since some guests may be sensitive to heavy scents we thank you for not using them in the space. And we also thank you for not smoking on the property.
**To rent the Main Studio or the Cottage only (1BR w/private bath/garden/patio) for 1-2 guests, ask about our discount. Decide which room you want to sleep in when you arrive.**
**Whether it's reserved for one room or two, the entire space is available to only one group (1-4 guests ) at a time. Separate groups will not be booked at the same time.

Where you’ll be

Sonoma, California, United States

We are located five-seven minutes away (driving) from Sonoma's historic and lively downtown plaza, wineries, wine tasting, great cafes, restaurants (ask about our favorites), shops, art galleries, festivals and special events (wine, food, art, film and more) throughout the year. In the heart of the Plaza, or the "Square," as the locals call it, there are some fun clothing and gift stores... there are walkways through the park, a magnificent fountain, a small amphitheater, a playground, a clock tower, grass to lay out a blanket and have a picnic, plus a charming duck pond. There's something for everyone! Spas and yoga classes, Farmers' Market, indoor/outdoor performing arts and music venues (Sonoma Speakeasy is a cozy, cool little music/dance venue tucked away on the Square), movie theaters, a wonderful book store (Readers Books), and fun outdoor activities... The Bike Path, just off the Sonoma Square, is a favorite local spot for jogging, walking or biking,

The Overlook Trail is great for a morning walk and casual hikers who want to experience a breathtaking view of Sonoma.

A trail with panoramic views of Sonoma and the Bay is Bartholomew Park (just behind Bartholomew Park Winery).

Jack London State Park has an excellent network of walks and trails, ranging in difficulty from 0 to 10.

Golf, beaches, and more..
For thrills and excitement Sonoma Raceway at Sears Point attracts fans from around the world.

Be Happy! That's what we named our place and that's my motto. It's great to meet new people and help make their stay in Sonoma a special one. I’m a native New Yorker and have lived in Sonoma for many years. By trade, I'm a voice over coach, producer, author and former Hollywood literary/talent agent. My experience in entertainment, combined with a Masters Degree in reading/language arts, complements my teaching and directing style. On the other side of our property is the purple door leading into RADIO MAGIC, my voice over recording studio, established in 1991. Writers, actors, students, businesses and entrepreneurs come to express themselves, learn, and find their true calling. In the main part of the house, I live with my multi-talented (legendary) musician husband, Roy, and our 3 little dogs. Yes, we are happy, too! :)
