About the Property
Apartment with a view
The apartment is 400 square feet and is above our garage. It was completed in March of 2015, so it is brand new! The views are incredible from every window. You can see all the way to the bay area on one side, vineyards to another and finally, a working farm, complete with cows, turkeys, sheep, horses chickens, dogs and cats on another side.
The apartment has a full kitchen, full bath, and a living room. There is a fold out couch in the living room as well as a queen sized bed in the bedroom. There is a partial wall separating the bedroom from the living area.
Quiet hours are 10PM-7AM, as we love our neighbors! The maximum amount of guests is 4 and the vehicle limit is 3.
It is situated on one of the more popular bike routes and is walking distance to a local winery and brewery. There are a handful of wineries just minutes away and the town of Sonoma is just three miles away. The city of Napa, another popular wine country destination is just 15 minutes away. The home is situated on a quiet road surrounded by vineyards, and other small family farms. It is a two and a half acre lot, with no homes close by. Our neighbors include horses, sheep, cows and goats. We also have horses,sheep,chickens and turkeys and a steer. Yes, the roosters do crow in the morning, so we will provide ear plugs. Our home offers a unique country experience, while you enjoy all the wine country has to offer. We have organic flower gardens, vegetable gardens, and an organic orchard. . We have children ourselves, so our home is very kid friendly.
Dana from Corte Madera writes 'What a great house! We stayed here with our daughter who loved the horses and other farm animals. It is a quick drive to the square, Napa, and local wineries. We took a beautiful morning walk along the vineyards -- a very peaceful place. We look forward to staying here again!'
Please see Sonoma Valley Visitors Center for local events. Also, Homewood Winery, Carneros Brewery and Fremont Diner are within walking distance.

About the owner: My husband is a retired police officer, our daughter is 14 years old and very involved in 4-H, and I am an elementary school teacher. We moved to Sonoma 15 years ago to be closer to family. We love the area and the people. There is never a dull moment and we are very close to San Francisco if you want something more. We enjoy our animals and gardens, and grow /produce a large portion of what we eat.
Why the Owner Chose Sonoma, CA, USA:
We camp often, and also do home exchanges and enjoy seeing different parts of the world.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The peace and quiet. We are off the beaten path, so we get very little traffic. It is a Great place to unwind and relax. Picking broccoli one minute and eating it ten minutes later is pretty cool. People say our eggs are the best they have ever had. We walk, ride our horses and bikes all around the neighborhood. It is very calming here. It is well located for trips to both Napa (fifteen minutes) and Sonoma (ten minutes).We are fortunate to be about a quarter of a mile, a short walk, away from Fremont Diner, Carneros Brewery and Homewood Winery.
