Charming little studio plus separate cozy cottage, zen garden and patio under the redwoods. Quiet, comfortable, super clean. Minutes from Sonoma's historic plaza and wine tasting. A perfect sanctuary for a group of 1 - 4 guests. Enjoy our Be Happy hideaway, designed for visiting artists, writers, business travelers, adventurers, world explorers and wine lovers! For more details about the unique layout, including bathroom access and amenities, see info under "The Space."

The space

Open the gate to your private hideaway and this place is all yours.
The entrance to the main studio is up three short steps to your right. Or, continue walking through the "secret" garden pathway to the cozy cottage and patio under the redwoods. From the cottage, back to the main studio, it's only a 24-SECOND walk through the garden to your shared guest bathroom (Yes, we timed it!).
The bathroom for your group has it's own entry, located in the hallway, adjacent to the main studio, which has it's own privacy door.

The bathroom has a shower/soaking tub, washer/dryer, iron and hair dryer for your convenience..
Both main studio and cottage have a queen-sized bed, wifi, cable TV, mini fridge, electric hot water kettle, coffee/tea, breakfast bars and healthy treats.
Air conditioner/heater installed in both main studio and cottage.
Have your coffee/glass of wine on the intimate brick patio with outdoor table/seating. The garden and patio offer an inspiring setting for enjoying peace and quiet, listening to the birds or gazing at the stars.

* For your comfort and health, natural earth friendly soaps, shampoo and organic non-fragrance cleaning products are utilized. Since some guests may be sensitive to heavy scents we thank you for not using them in the space.

* The two bedrooms (Main Studio and Cottage) are rented together as part of the entire space, available for a group of 1 - 4 guests. Because of the shared bathroom, the bedrooms are not rented to two separate unrelated groups at the same time.

Guest access

Park in the single brick driveway, which we've reserved for you. Easy off street parking is also available.

Interaction with guests

We'll say hello when you arrive and we like to show our guests to their rooms. After that, we respect your privacy, yet are quickly available should you need assistance or have any questions.

Other things to note

Mascots! FYI, three small friendly white fluffy dogs live in the main house, completely separate from the studio and cottage.

Adjacent to the main house is the RADIO MAGIC VOICE OVER STUDIO, founded by your host and voice over coach, Madeleine Wild. Interested? Ask Madeleine to take you on a "tour" of her cozy recording studio.

Madeleine is the author of "How to Be a Voice Over Success!" and has trained hundreds of voice over professionals. She offers private and group training sessions at special rates to Be Happy! guests. No prior voice over experience necessary.

Our stay at Madeline’s place was perfect. The space worked out so well for myself and my two sisters, we were able to spend time visiting out on the patio and enjoyed having the separate spaces for sleeping. It was private and quiet and a short trip to central Sonoma and all the restaurants and tasting rooms there. Madeline was a great host and the place was spotless! We hope to return someday soon!

We celebrated my friend Elizabeth this weekend with a bachelorette in Sonoma and Napa… I chose this Airbnb and we were not disappointed. Madeleine was a gracious host, it was very cute, clean, and comfortable… Very private. We felt very safe and it was conveniently located near downtown Sonoma. Just an Uber ride away for a fun night out. Thank you again for everything!

Enjoyed a great stay at Madeleine's place- attractive accommodations, comfortable, clean, great location (just a few minutes from the heart of Sonoma). Madeleine made some great recommendations of where to go and what to do. She was very communicative and a wonderful hostess. Thought the property was a great value. We had a group of four adults that took two rooms- only thing to note is one of the rooms does not have a bathroom directly in it and all common area space is outdoors (i.e.- no indoor living room, etc.). Would highly recommend.

My coworker and I stayed at while working in Napa & Sonoma. Madeleine was extremely helpful and friendly. The two separated rooms were prefect for a business trip.

Be Happy is all that its owner states in her description, and the location, accessible to all the fine things in Sonoma, is perfect. We did not even rent a car--used Lyft when necessary and walked the rest of the time.

Clean rooms with air conditioning. Fridge and TV in the room. Madeleine also provides snacks and water for the room too which is a nice touch. Her garden is so cute and you have the option of taking two rooms with one of the rooms and the bathroom in the actual house while the other bedroom is in a guest house in the back.

Be Happy! That's what we named our place and that's my motto. It's great to meet new people and help make their stay in Sonoma a special one. I’m a native New Yorker and have lived in Sonoma for many years. By trade, I'm a voice over coach, producer, author and former Hollyw…
