Apartment with a view
Transient Occupancy Number 1437N
The apartment is 400 square feet and is above our garage. It was completed in March of 2015, so it is very 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 in the Sonoma/Napa area and is walking distance to a Ceja Winery, Homewood Winery, Hanson Vodka and Carneros 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. Just jump on your bike and ride.
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 Eileen Pharo
My husband is a retired police officer, our daughter is 16 years old and very involved in 4-H and FFA and I am an elementary school teacher. We moved to Sonoma 17 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.
Eileen Pharo purchased this Apartment in 1999
Why Eileen Pharo chose Sonoma
We camp often, and also do home exchanges and enjoy seeing different parts of the world.
What makes this Apartment unique
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. We are located on the most popular bike route in the Sonoma/Napa area. 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.

Napa and Sonoma Wine Tour
We loved it! Perfect for 4 people. Very quite and serene, loved the farm animals. Unit was very neat and clean. In the middle of Napa and Sonoma wine country. Eileen and Rich were a pleasure to speak with and very accommodating.
Stay in Sonoma
We were very pleased with our time at this home. The Pharos made us feel welcome and included several personal touches to our stay. The surrounding area was beautiful and fun to explore.
Loved our adventure on the farm! Great hosts and accommodations made wine country experience A+!
We loved this unique experience staying on this beautiful working farm. We got to look out over the nearby vineyard while listening to sounds of the farm. Every detail of our stay was perfect for our weekend getaway. The close proximity to downtown Sonoma and oodles of vineyards made our day trips easy and accessible. Accommodations easily fit our needs for three adults. We appreciate our hosts for making our trip a truly unique and amazing adventure!
Cute & sweet getaway
A beautiful little space away from the hustle & bustle of everyday life. Very comfortable bed for two and a pull out couch as comfortable as any pull out couch (so not very). The rest was cute and convenient and the roosters crow to wake you up at the crack of dawn.
A working farm, charming apartment, comfy
Charming and clean, comfy bed, gracious hosts. Enjoyed our stay.
While Sonoma is a lovely town with a variety of wonderful activities, we highly encourage all that visit this area to take advantage of the proximity to Point Reyes National Seashore. The scenery is spectacular and on a given day you can view falcons, eagles, elephant seals , fox, Tule Elk, deer, whales, seals, coyotes and even river otters!
