House in the country only minutes from downtown Sonoma by car (probably too far to walk). Your suite is an independent section of the main house with private entrance. It includes a spacious living room with king sized hide-a-bed couch and a foam memory mat for more comfort, a private bedroom with queen bed, private bathroom and fully equipped kitchenette (including coffee, tea, milk, chips, energy bars, popcorn and excellent water from a deep well). Satellite TV with DVD/VCR with a limited selection of movies. Wi-fi ready and plenty of parking.
It is total country with a view of magnificent sunrise and sunsets. An excellent place for a run and for a quiet night-sleep. Bikers, check out (website hidden) for a great high-end bike rental. (We're related to the owner).
All Valley wineries are within minutes- drive. If you plan to party, we offer free drop off – if before 9:00 PM.
Return via taxi and you do not disturb the hosts or neighbors regardless of how late you return.
Your hosts are a Christian couple who have been affiliated with Airbnb for over two years and old hands at hosting through global exchange programs and who will go out of their way to make your stay as pleasant as possible!
This is a private section of a large country house. It would be courteous to the family living on the other side if you would keep the noise down after 10:00 p.m.
Please don't smoke in the house - which is pretty standard all over the entire state of California.
No other "house rules" but just think about what would a reasonable person do.
This was our 2nd time staying at Diana and Li's place. It is very nice. We have two babies and we were able to separate them, so they slept good. The little kitchenette is perfect and Li is very sweet. The land and view is just exceptional and so beautiful. We will definitely keep this on our favorite lists. Thank you! Oh and the fresh milk and cheese's in the frig were yummy and little Makenzie sure liked the fruit snacks she found.
Li and her husband were wonderful hosts. Shortly after we arrived they came over and welcomed us. We felt every comfortable in there home. The property was beautiful and everything was just how they explained in the (website hidden) even called us to let us know we left some stuff in the bathroom. I went for a walk in the morning and felt very safe in the neighborhood. We only stayed for one night but will definitely come back if we are visiting Sonoma again. They were good about giving us our privacy but next time we would like to spend more time talking to them. Thank you for such a wonderful stay.

The on-site managers, Don and Li, clearly wanted us to feel at home. We arrived late at night to an open garage door, lights on, and a sign "Airbnb guests park here", with an arrow pointing to the garage door through which we entered the Suite. The suite consists of an entrance hallway, large bedroom, large living room, bath, and small kitchen. Very homey and comfortable, with black-out window treatments that encouraged sleeping in! The area is safe, feels like it is safe, and there was no need to lock things up.
The daily upkeep of towels, coffee, fruit, etc was unfailing, and more than adequate. The Columbian cofee was delicious!
Li and Don were our (website hidden) was out of town, so Don took excellent care of us. Having family in the Valley of the Moon, we did not spend much time at the house, and he was fine with that. Very, very pleasant people.
Their place is on the west side of the Valley where the land is flat, with grazing, vinyards, citrus trees, eucalyptus, flowers. Lovely part of the Valley, and short distance from Sonoma Plaza.
We be returning to Sonoma, and will stay here again if it is available. We'd even change our travel plans to get it!
We thoroughly enjoyed our time staying with Ligia and Don! They were both incredibly welcoming and generous with their time. Their home was just as lovely as described. We found the location to be convenient to both the town of Sonoma and the surrounding area. Hopefully, we'll be able to go back and visit them sometime soon!
I rented this home for one night as a part of a girls getaway weekend. We were pleasantly spoiled by the hospitality of Diana's mother and father, & I appreciate their ability to make our stay a memorable one. From setting up their patio so that we could have dinner under the stars, to excellent restaurant recommendations, we were left with wanting nothing. It was a perfect transition to a slumber party from a long day of wine tasting :-)
We can't wait to return to enjoy this mini haven in wine country!
We stayed here one night and it was very pleasant!
We booked in the last minute and got a quick and kind response and the communication was very (website hidden) and Don welcomed us kindly and were happy to help and answer all our questions including advice on things to do. They were also very happy with our baby and offered help if needed.
We enjoyed the peacefulness of the place. The night there is so quiet and calm, the dark sky has so many stars and the only sound is the frogs from the creek.
We had a lovely breakfast on the back deck, which is connected to the main section in the house. They were happy to let us go through the house to the deck, and provided whatever we needed including freshly squeezed orange juice!
lovely couple, lovely home nestled on the outskirts of Sonoma. Very welcoming hosts, super quiet accommodations.
