About this listing
A luxury setting for a beautiful, restful, or romantic wine country stay.
A gated side entrance near the driveway leads you from streetside into the garden and to the large, elegant suite (457 sq.ft.) featuring a master bedroom, reading room and master bath. The suite is within the owner's home, but its access offers guests separate accommodations. Furnished in country French, the suite is decorated with Asian accents and original artwork. Guests are welcome to enjoy full use of the Asian-inspired garden as well as the deck and patio areas.
Your host resides in the main section of this home, located on Sonoma's popular east side. There is ample parking in the driveway and in front of the house.
A short, 10-minute walk (.9 mile) and you're at the famous Sonoma Plaza where you can browse through quaint shops, catch a movie, visit the many wine tasting rooms, restaurants, boutiques and historical California landmarks. The downtown attractions and other historic wineries are all within minutes of the house.
Suite details: Queen Bed, fine linens, down comforter and memory foam mattress topper. The en suite 6' jetted tub (currently not available due to the drought) and separate shower offer a luxury master bath setting that looks out onto the charming garden with mature trees and redwood grove.
Guests can enjoy coffee or tea in the privacy of their quarters or in the garden.
There is no air conditioning in the home, but the suite is equipped with portable and ceiling fans for your comfort on those few hot days that occur.
For a relaxing afternoon, read a book on the chaise lounge or wander around the property; enjoy the garden and tranquil Quan Yin meditation area.
This is a quiet, centrally-located residential neighborhood. Guests are asked to observe "good neighbor" considerations as regards parking and keep noise levels and outside conversations low after 10 pm.
A wonderful choice for a romantic or relaxing stay in Sonoma's wine country.
To enhance their enjoyment guests are welcome to access the following shared areas: the back garden grounds and deck areas on this gorgeous quarter-acre property with its redwood "grove", majestic oak and a variety of fruit trees.
Interaction with Guests
You will be personally welcomed by the host upon arrival and given a full orientation to the suite. Let us know if you'd like concierge services, and we will be happy to help you develop an itinerary for your Sonoma stay.
We are located in the highly desirable east side neighborhood in the City of Sonoma. You can walk to the Downtown Plaza and most places within a few minutes, and it's easy access to roads taking you further into Sonoma and Napa counties.
On your way to the plaza you will see many beautiful gardens and most recently, due to the drought, some very creative solutions to low water, low maintenance landscapes.
Since Sonoma was originally an old Mexican settlement many homes were made from adobe brick and have been designated historic landmarks. Ask your host for a self-guided map if you'd like to create your own tour of these homes.
You can walk to the plaza in about 10 minutes. For longer distances bike rentals, taxi services, private tours, or car rentals can be easily arranged.

SAFETY: Though we are located in a safe, residential neighborhood, Sonoma is not crime-proof, and nothing can ruin a vacation faster than some unpleasant incident. Therefore all doors, windows, and gates must be closed and locked whenever you leave the premises. We are not responsible for any lost or damaged personal goods. If any windows or doors are left open or unlocked, you will be surcharged $25 per day for every day we provide security service. There is a lost key charge of $150 for any lost keys.
The dog gate is to be kept closed at all times as well.
