Hacienda Sonoma is close to everything wonderful that Sonoma Valley has to offer. Walk to 9 wineries, a couple of restaurants, some cute shops, and our neighborhood grocery market from our property. No one has to be the "D.D!" You'll feel as if you've "gotten away from it all" in our peaceful setting, but you're just steps away from everything fun. This beautiful custom home is the PLACE. While we have been renting since 2008, we're new to Airbnb. See how great Sonoma can be!
Our location is IDEAL. We are in the part of Sonoma Valley with the greatest concentration of vineyards and wineries -- you can walk to 9 wineries within 6 blocks, a couple of restaurants and gift shops, as well as our neighborhood grocery market. Yet, it's peaceful and serene, and surrounding by rolling hills covered in vineyards. We built this house in 2008 and designed it for just this purpose -- getting together with friends and family, in a spacious, welcoming environment. No detail has been overlooked -- from the luxurious beds and spacious bathrooms (not having enough outlets or mirrors has always been my pet peeve when traveling, so there are tons!), huge gourmet kitchen with 2 dishwashers, to all the fun amenities like a bocce court, wood-fired pizza oven, board games, pool table, bar, whole-house sound system... we have everything to make a vacation fun!
The whole house. Our yard is incredibly beautiful. Not only is there a small Zinfandel Vineyard (we make wine, too) and a French Lavender field with over 500 lavender plants, we have an herb garden, heirloom tomato plants, two peach trees, a fig tree, and a mandarin orange tree. Feel free to pick some produce or arrange some flowers from our yard. Just be inside by 10pm! The County of Sonoma has strict rules about "quiet time."
Interaction with guests
I am more than happy to help you plan your stay at any time. We have lots of reviews elsewhere, and I'm known for my hospitality!
Other things to note
We like to stay often at our vacation home, so have stocked it with the things that make a visit as easy as possible -- coffee, creamer, sugar, salt, flour, olive oil, many spices, hairdryers, etc. We don't like to pack any more than we have to, either!
- Sonoma County has a strict Vacation Rental Ordinance. There cannot be more than 8 people on our property at any time, and no more than 6 adults overnight. We are prohibited from having guests outside in the yard after 10pm. This is a no-smoking home and no pets are allowed (we have a child with severe allergies). Please treat this home as if you were staying at a friend's home and we will do everything we can to make sure you have the best vacation ever! Our main concern is protecting our vacation rental permit with the county -- we cannot have parties or events on our property (the County requires an event permit). While we are very forgiving if little things get broken, if you intentionally misuse the home or should we receive complaints from our neighbors that are not immediately resolved, or if police are dispatched to the property, all rental fees and damage deposit will be forfeited, and you may be required to vacate the premises. Please help us keep Airbnb rentals from being prohibited in Sonoma County!
I'm a vacation rental homeowner and have been renting since 2008. Our property is called Hacienda Sonoma in the Sonoma Valley. My husband and I have two teenage kids, we're foodies, we grow zinfandel grapes and make wine, and we love to travel. We are new to hosting on Airbnb, but are looking forward to showing travelers here how wonderful Sonoma Valley is!
