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 almost three 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.
We really enjoyed our stay at Diana's place. The unit was very clean with plenty of amenities. Lots of little warm touches everywhere to make you feel welcome. It was comfortable quiet and closely located to town. Diana was very helpful with all questions we have and she is the perfect host. On our last day she invited us to a perfect full breakfast. Yummy.
What a lovely place. The hosts are very thoughtful and provided most things you'd need. Too bad we only spent one night there and were out most the time that we didn't get to spend more time talking to the hosts. Would love to go back again tho!
Ligia and Don gave us a warm welcome to Sonoma. We loved the cosy place and the very friendly atmosphere. The facilities were very clean and we found everything we needed.
I was searching for a cozy, affordable space for four people near my friends' wedding venue, Gloria Ferrer Winery for two nights. Luckily I planned early because I looked no further once I saw this cute place. Diana was very responsive and sincere with all our correspondences. Once we got closer to our arrival date, I began corresponding with Ligia, her mom who owns and lives in the property with her dynamic duo husband, Don.
Ligia was so hospitable from the time we stepped in. Who knew we would be having hospitality services parallel to a hotel, if not better? She encouraged us to help ourselves to towels/linens, snacks, beverages and toiletries. We also had access to free wifi and all kinds of movies in DVDs and VHS. We ended up watching Ghostbusters one afternoon. With all the makings of a quintessential ranch house and lifestyle including the bucolic scenery and southern hospitality, we could not have asked for more. Daily complimentary rides was truly an icing on top! And we were super close to Whole Foods and shopping district. All four of us highly recommend this home for your stay in Sonoma.
Warm and welcoming hosts. Very helpful in finding wineries and places to eat. Highly recommend.
We had a wonderful stay. Very friendly host(s) and a great area to spend a few days!
I booked a stay for a wedding in Sonoma for myself, my boyfriend, and our roommate. I ended up not making it at the last minute, so it ended up being my boyfriend and our roommate. Although I didn't stay with Ligia and Don, I was told that they were extremely kind and welcoming hosts. My boyfriend, who is very picky, told me this was the best Airbnb he's stayed at! (And we've been to several.) Our roommate said that Ligia was exceptionally nice, even offering him a ride to town and to help with ironing his formal shirts for the wedding. I was told that both the bed and the sofa-bed were very comfortable. I also found the communication with Ligia to be great, especially since I had to change plans last minute (I initially only booked one night, but had to add a second for the rehearsal dinner). Absolutely a fantastic host and an excellent value!
Thank you so much Sherry for your encouraging and strengthening review! We love what we do and I am so glad that the guys enjoyed their stay; they were very easy to host, very nice, indeed! Thanks again and hope some day you will be back in this part of the country as we would love to host you again!
