Interaction with Guests
I generally don't see my guests but am always available via text or phone and I do drive by to check on things occasionally!
This is a quiet residential neighborhood located just a few minutes by car to the Sonoma Plaza.
Verns Taxi at (phone number hidden) or Sonoma Tax is recommended as there is little public transporation. You can get to the plaza one way for under $10.00...
Other Things to Note
Super close to Sonoma Mission In, Villa Palms is very centrally located to head 'up valley' for wine tasting on Highway 12, a beautiful and popular route, or minutes to the Sonoma Plaza or Napa...

This was our first Air B&B and it was fantastic!
Very easy check in, and everything was as described. A lovely quiet and secluded area, quaint accommodation and gorgeous garden/plunge pool. It was the ideal spot for exploring Sonoma wine country as part of our honeymoon. Highly recommend it to other couples!
Exceeded expectations in every way! The house was clean, beautiful and well stocked, the backyard was the perfect retreat. The arrival process couldn't have been easier, and we felt like we had our own little secluded oasis the whole time. We did rent a car, and that made the whole stay really convenient. Joe gave us great recommendations and we had a great time!
Really enjoyed This place. It was a close drove to the plaza and an easy jumping off place to the rest of Sonoma. Everything was as described and we enjoyed our stay.
Everything was clean and ready for us to enjoy. All the brochures and menus were a great help when deciding what to do for the day/evening.
This place is beautiful! My boyfriend and I like to escape to Sonoma from time to time and usually stay at a place a little closer to the square but recently adopted a dog and therefore started searching for places that accepted animals. We came across this gem and it sounded right up our alley. Although it's a bit further out(meaning it takes 10 minutes to drive to the square) it was a wonderful space. Nice pool(dipping so think large, cool tub!) patio furniture, umbrellas to provide shade, a grill to BBQ and a fire pit. We made fires both nights after eating dinner on the outdoor table, under the stars. The cottage is a perfect size for two people but would've been cramped had anyone else stayed there with us. There's a microwave, dishes for two and a small fridge/freezer. We went wine tasting one day which was about a 15 minute drive from the house, but only because you drive thru town and there's always a little traffic. The wineries are actually quite close. (I wouldn't stay here if your planning on biking around however, a little too hilly I would think.)
We will def be staying here again!
Great place! Loved it. Easy check in/out, clean and nice location. The pool was great!
We've stayed at Twin Palms before and it was just as comfortable and inviting as we remembered it to be. Thanks Joe, we'll be back!
