As you step through the arch you are transformed into another time and place. Quiet, private behind the walls of the Hacienda style home. The gardens are lush and filled with birds of all kinds. There are several vignettes to relax and watch nature.
Tropical gardens ,quiet,relaxing , colorful and unique. The Hacienda was built by our own blood , sweat and joy. It sits on two acres and surrounded by six more. Once you walk thru the arched wall you are transformed to another place. Ther are several places to hang out,eat or play on the three lawn ares within the walls. Sometimes our guests join us outside to eat and drink the many delicious wines from our home town. We are only a little over a mile from the town square and can see the fireworks from our lavender field.
There is smoking out side only.
If you bring a dog, it has to leave with you during the day.
We had a nice time at the casita! We really liked the aesthetic and the bed is incredibly comfortable. The only thing new guests should know is that to go from the living room to the bedroom you have to pass through the bathroom, so if your companion is using the bathroom you can be stuck in the bedroom. But we didn't find it to be a big deal at all and had a great time! We would love to come back in the summer!

Beautiful private setting. The landscaping & architecture near magical. About a 5 minute drive to downtown Sonoma. Hacienda de Amor offers a lovely private suite that feels like its a world away, and even offered a full kitchenette equip with fresh coffee & milk. We loved it.
The hacienda was beautiful and the location superb. This is the perfect place for two people for a weekend in Sonoma.
The ultimate Sonoma experience. Lovely landscaping, artistic and intriguing in every way. Roger and Cena, and the unforgettable Poochini, have truly mastered the art of hosting . So relaxing you will never want to leave. Thank you for opening up your home and making our stay feel like it was all done just for us.
A very welcoming retreat with great overall energy and feel. The property is absolutely beautiful and they are the lucky owners of a "happy go lucky" dog named Poochini. That might have been the best part, especially if you have dogs or like being around them. The actual residence is very clean and their are many comforts supplied including WiFi, coffee, wine glasses, nice shampoo and more. Bed and lounge area were also to expectations. Overall, very pleased with our stay.
We had a very nice stay at the Hacienda de amor. The room is tastefully decorated (with fresh flowers) and the grounds surrounding the property are beautiful. Location is quiet but close to town. If you are looking for a quiet place for a getaway you should consider this spot!

Lover of color and light! That includes gardening ( two acres) creating rooms outside.
Photographer, designer of fashion ( glamour yoga wear) wedding gowns, ( I paint them now). We love to creat ambiance here and share with all who come thru the arch. I give classes on expressing yourself with paint and palm leaves on silk scarves , redesigning clothing, furniture and the way one lives.
Roger is always building and creating, an arbor, gates, doors (out of an old water tank) or pouring concrete for a fountain for La vida Hacienda. This year there will be a giant sunflower room for a wedding here. We like combing the old with the new , and the feeling like we are always on vacation. I rarely leave the compound, Roger likes to shop, thank goodness! We love eating outside and having casita guests share their stories, while we all enjoy the good food and wine available in this area.
We built this place ourselves. Roger is an architectural engineer and wanted to create a lasting home. So it is built out of styrofoam and concrete with an old world ambiance. There are huge old beams in the house and casita. Nothing is typical and you truly feel you are in another world.
