Why Michael Marino chose Sonoma

The Wine Country has a lot to offer but when it comes to where we wanted to buy the decision was easy, Sonoma Valley is the best. Hands down!

What makes this cottage unique

One of the best benefits of the rental is it's size. It's larger then most 1 bedroom houses out there. It's 1,000 sq feet, in addition it has a private patio and Hot Tub right off the Master Bedroom. The location is also a plus, only 2.6 miles to the Downtown Historic Sonoma Plaza and 5 minutes to the wineries.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved everything about Sonoma. Coming back to the "Petite Syrah House" at the end of an amazing day made it feel just like home. We couldn't have picked a better spot. we hope to come back very soon!



P.S. The Segway Tour of the Sonoma Plaza was awesome!

Perfect Anniversary in Sonoma

  • 5 of 5

First, the pictures do not do this home justice. The little cottage is absolutely perfect. In fact, it is the best VRBO we've ever stayed in. Mike and Valerie were fantastic hosts.

The house is beautiful. It's a really nice, private property. The house is kept in immaculate condition. They have a nice fridge, laundry, and nice cookware. Truly, it could not have been more perfect. We loved it so much that when we come back to the area, we wouldn't even consider staying anywhere else.

The location is great. It's very very close to downtown Sonoma. For us, it was a reasonable drive to Napa and Russian River Valley. Full disclosure, we live in a high-traffic area, so the drive time for us didn't really matter. The mileage isn't far between Sonoma/Napa, but the speed limits are low. Not at all an issue with the house, though. We chose to stay in Sonoma when booking the trip, knowing we would make the trek to Napa and Russian River Valley.

Anyway, I truly can't say enough good things about the house and Mike and Valerie. The house is so charming, beautiful, and so well-maintained. There were people staying in the house next to us, but we had so much privacy, we didn't notice they were there. Valerie called the day we arrived and made sure we were in California, so she could confirm everything was ready with the house for us. We had no problems checking in/out. All easy.

Thank you so much to Mike & Valerie! This is a very special cottage!!

Everything that we hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Petit Syrah in Sonoma! The house was perfect with everything we could have possibly needed. The owners were very helpful and accommodating but gave us our privacy as well. We would definitely choose this house again or possibly one of the others on the property if we came with friends or family. We loved it!
