About the property

A beautiful wine country home amidst nature and minutes from downtown Sonoma

A beautiful 4 acre property located only an hour away from San Francisco and about an hour and 15 minutes away from the bay area. This wonderful wine country home is only a short drive (2 miles) from downtown Sonoma (and Sonoma Square) located in the coveted east side of town. Its also a short drive or a bike ride away from many wineries. This is a brand new rental as of June 2015, a newly remodeled home with all new furniture - new beds (and mattresses), sofas, bunk beds and more. A fully-equipped kitchen with everything you need to cook a wine country meal for you and your family. This home is a perfect week long or weekend getaway. It is very comfortable for up to 6 adults and 6 kids OR 8 adults (we allow up to 10 adults).

We are neighbors with Chris and Lori Melancon, who run Lolafarms, Sonoma next door. Feel free to contact them for a farm tour or buy fresh meat/produce. They have 3 beautiful dogs, goats, pigs, chickens, bees and mouth-watering organic vegetables. You can reach them at -

Features of the home -

Walking into the front door you'll immediately notice the openness of the floor

plan, with a formal dining room and kitchen that opens up to the large living room that flows into the pool area. The home boasts gorgeous views from every room.

From the guest bedrooms, kitchen and dining area, enjoy amazing views of the vineyards rolling over the hills across the street. Master bathroom includes a walk-in shower and large whirlpool tub.

Outdoor living space:

The outdoor pool is equipped with 2 8-seater dining tables (if you want the kids to sit separately) and and plenty of lounge chairs and outdoor seating. Cool off in the pool following by a relaxing dip in the 6 person jacuzzi. The pool can be heated for an additional charge. At night, enjoy the sounds of country living sitting outdoors by the outdoor gas fire pit! You might spots a few bats flying overhead and enjoy the clear night sky and stars! The property is home to beautiful trees. When you relax by the pool you will notice how beautiful and calming these trees can be. Don't miss the Red Tail Hawk nest high up in the trees.

One of the best feature of the property is the Windmill and Pond located in the back of the property. This serene pond and windmill are a great feature for kids to explore. You can enjoy a picnic by the pond, while the kids spot frogs and fish. You may even spot deer or ducks or that occasionally stop by for a drink. You may try your hand at fishing but no swimming is allowed.

There is a fully equipped outdoor kitchen and a BBQ in the pool area, perfect for a pool party.

Great time!

We loved the house, it is large with comfortable beds, nice location with vineyard views. We enjoyed the hot tub in the evenings.

Overall Nice

  • 3 of 5

Overall it was a nice place to stay but the outside of the house was not picked up and the heat was not working the first night we were there and had to get by with space heaters. The indoor gas fireplace was also broken and there was no propane in any of the tanks outside so we couldn't use the outside fire pit either. I would likely stay again as the location was nice and the inside clean but I think a few improvements could be made before the guests arrive to ensure they have a nice time.

Wine country retreat, great for a big group!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed out stay! The house was set up perfectly for our girl's trip to wine country! The location is great as it's a close ride to Sonoma Plaza and there is a really cute deli just up the street! There was one area that could definitely be improved on. When we arrived, all the patio furniture was covered up and not ready for guests. When we uncovered everything, the cushions were too dirty to sit on and the patio and pool needed to be cleaned. Since California has such beautiful weather, it would have been nice to spend more time outside. Other than that, a great time was had by all!!! Sanjay was very easy to work with and responded to our requests right away! Thank you!!

Wonderful, big, inviting home!

  • 5 of 5

We rented Sanjay's home for a bachelorette party and could not have been more impressed! The house is 10 minutes from Sonoma Square and is absolutely gorgeous!! Even with lots of girls, we had plenty of space for everyone. In fact, the house is much bigger in person than in the photos. There are so many amenities! We used the hot tub both nights and it was perfect. The kitchen is very large and has everything you need to make meals. It even has a professional stove. :) I was also super relieved that there was plenty of space for everyone to park. All-in-all, it was an amazing trip and my only regret is that we didn't stay longer and enjoy the house more.
