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...

Amazing stay! Hoping to make a trip back to stay at the Villa Palms. House/backyard were great - thanks again!
The guesthouse was lovely, we really enjoyed our stay! It looks in reality exactly as it does in the pictures. The location was very convenient with respect to exploring Sonoma and its nearby attractions. We never had any need to contact Joe during our stay at the property, but he was very responsive and helpful in the days beforehand. The directions he provided for check-in and check-out were clear and simple, making things very easy for us. In short, the listing is accurate, we enjoyed our stay, and we would certainly stay here again!
Joe's guest house was a perfect getaway for a couple looking to explore Senoma and other wine country regions. It is only a 10 minute drive to Sonoma Square as well as the best wineries in the region. We enjoyed having a nice clean place to relax and enjoy time away from the city. Upon arrival, the house was very clean and instructions were straightforward. Very low maintenance vacation! Strongly recommend to others.
My only complain was there was a loud party on Saturday night in the main house that detracted from the serenity of the stay, otherwise I give this location 5 stars!
Our host was very responsive via texts and emails, and very welcoming of us and our dog. The check-in instructions were very clear. The room was accurately described and very comfortable, clean, private, and really quite beautiful. We liked the neighborhood and the location--close to town but not right in town. We were grateful to find a place that is pet friendly.
As a first experience with airbnb I could not be happier. Joe's private guest house was clean, comfortable and presented as advertised. We truly enjoyed our experience in Sonoma at this beautiful backyard venue. The fireplace/ heater is a nice little touch too for a romantic evening after a day at the vineyards.
This place was the perfect location for our anniversary getaway. It was easy to find and had plenty of room for us for the night we were there. It was clean and the bed was very comfortable. We never saw the host, but the process was so easy that that was not a problem! I would highly recommend this!
What a charming little hideaway! I 100% recommend this air B&B! The out door area is the shinning star hear, although we couldn't use it much do to rain. Lovely, warm, clean and so close to the heart of Sonoma.
