About This Listing
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.
Our host was very welcoming! We had great communication all the way up to the day of our arrival and on our arrival she left us detailed notes that I thought was a nice, personal touch. No guess work settling in at all! The accommodations were ready and inviting with every amenity we needed. We even asked to do our laundry and Li was very nice to provide all that was necessary to get our wash done. And our host was so pleasant to help with information about the area. We will come back anytime we are in the area.
We didn't meet Diana in person, her parents met us instead. They were very welcoming and kind, which reminded me of my grandparents. Since we have a party of three people, they already made the sofa bed prepared before our arrival. And they also provided us with fruits, milk, butter and yogurt stored in the fridge, which was very sweet. If you plan to visit Napa valley, Diana's house is a good choice!
We had a wonderful stay with Ligia and Don. We were in Sonoma for a wedding and their place was really convenient for diving into town and visiting lots of attractions in the area. We were traveling with our three year old and they made everything super cozy and home-like for her. It is a really spacious and comfortable house with some great outdoor spaces to explore. We enjoyed watching the sunset over the hills and seeing great horned owls. As great as everything was the best part was Li and Don themselves. They were very kind and generous with their time and very useful information. We hope to go back someday (our daughter already wants to go back tomorrow!).
Absolutely wonderful experience, our hosts were incredibly kind and understanding and the house itself was marvelous. If you want beautiful views and lovely people, you can't beat this property.
We had a great time staying at Ligia and Don's place, which was very comfortable and homely. A brilliant base to explore the region and lovely hosts. Would love to visit again.
Nice spacious accommodations--private suite a plus. Hosts provided the perfect balance of helpfulness and privacy. Relaxing country setting only a few minutes to Sonoma plaza. Would recommend to anyone without hesitation.
We had a great time in a lovely and peaceful location! Ligia and family were great hosts, even lovely enough to give us a ride to a vineyard & offered many options to explore in the neighborhood !
We would Definitely encourage you to stay here
