About this listing
A canopy of shade and tranquility covers a furnished one bedroom cottage with kitchenette, a private bathroom with shower and plush towels, ceiling fan, and queen size bed in residential Sonoma. The bedroom has a contemporary feel beneath a cathedral ceiling and warm decor that provides a relaxing and restorative ambiance. Ample closet and storage space exist for your needs. Two century-old Oak and Sycamore trees grace the deck for pleasurable afternoon/evening reading.... Free and secure street parking in front is available. Comcast, DVD and Wifi capability (computer not provided). Additionally, we offer a reasonably priced, therapeutic massage with Kathryn, if you desire.
Our cottage is located about 2 miles from the historic town Plaza and within walking distance to charming shops, art galleries and restaurants. The Plaza hosts the Sebastiani Theater-one of the few remaining theaters that features independent films; the Mission San Francisco Solano de Sonoma-a historical building from the time of early California history; and a sampling of Sonoma's fine wineries and tasting rooms. The Plaza comes alive Tuesday evenings for the Farmer's Market where locals and tourists meet to shop for and sample fresh seasonal produce, enjoy picnics on the lawn and listen to live music of various genres.
In addition to the Plaza, Sonoma offers great trails for hiking, biking and nearby parks for exploration and relaxation. For those inclined to the "hands on experience", Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn and Spa is less than 10 minutes from the cottage.
Note: Sonoma County requires that we charge and collect a 9% "Transient Occupancy Tax". This has been included in the rate that you see on airbnb.
Hope to see you here!!
We had a great experience at Kathryn and Steve's cottage. The space was perfect for our need--private, clean, comfortable and extremely convenient to Sonoma. Steve and Kathryn were kind, gracious and responsive; and we really enjoyed the breakfast! We highly recommend it to anyone.
Kathryn and Steve's cottage feels so private and relaxing- exactly what we were looking for! They really went above and beyond with the little extras to make sure we felt welcome. If you are thinking of staying here during your visit to Sonoma, do it!
Kathryn and Steve were wonderful hosts and truly made our stay so great in Sonoma! We loved the attention to small details such as the wine and nuts on the bed when we first arrived, to the breakfast at the door every morning! Thanks for the wonderful hospitality!
We loved our stay at peaceful easy feeling! The cottage had everything we needed. Continental breakfast delivered to our doorstep each morning was such a treat! I spent my mornings reading on the comfy chaise outside on the lovely private patio under large shaded trees. Perfect. Would absolutely return next time we are in California wine country.
We loved staying here. It was just as pretty as it looks in the pictures, and really lives up to it's name! Staying here was peaceful and easy! We loved all the thoughtful little touches, including complimentary wine waiting for us when we arrived, fresh fruit and juice in the mornings, a kitchenette with everything we needed, a beautiful bathroom with nice towels and essentials, and a information book with helpful recommendations. This place was beautiful (especially the lovely deck!) and we hope to return next year! Thank you for everything, Kathryn and Steve!
Our stay with Kathryn and Steve exceeded expectations. The wealth of positive comments are well justified. We spent a majority of our time touring Sonoma/Napa, but the time we did spend at the cottage was great. Both Kathryn and Steve were very friendly when we ran into them one of the evenings. The cottage itself is very warm/cozy, and felt like a little home away from home. The picnic basket breakfast was a perfect way to start the morning, and there were a number of other nice touches that we enjoyed (e.g. coffee, plates/silverware, movies, magazines). I would recommend this airbnb to any family/friends who need a place to stay in Sonoma.
The cottage is lovely and very peaceful as described. I cannot say enough about how welcoming and thoughtful Kathryn and Steve were -- they had every need anticipated. And they gifted us with a bottle of wine and light breakfast each morning, which was very sweet.
The location is about 1.5-2 miles from downtown Sonoma, so a rental car is needed - although we used Uber and taxis a couple times with no problems. It's an easy location for biking to the vineyards also.
Our only critique is the bathroom; the screen door that separates it from the main room of the cottage doesn't allow for maximum privacy. If you aren't comfortable with your spouse/companion in close proximity to you while one is using the restroom, you should think carefully.
Overall, this was a five star experience!
