This house is "gorgeous" and serene. I couldn't have asked for a better weekend.

So many outside activities to choose from. I love the playhouse! Jeana

Beautiful Wine Country Retreat!
average rating of 5.0 based on 17 reviews

Well maintained and clean property.

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful house for a family gathering where the family could congregate for breakfast and snacks at leisure. It is in a great location close to Sonoma and its many nice restaurants. The on line photos set the stage for a memorable and relaxing retreat. The house and its vast property were well maintained and presented a warm and peaceful setting. We look forward to going there again. All members of our family loved it!

A Perfect Place for Us in Wine Country

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 10 friends (40s) spent 4 nights on this lovely property centrally located to both Sonoma and Napa County Vineyards. It was perfect for our group with plenty of comfy beds and bathrooms! We wine toured for for two days and took a day to just relax and enjoy the property. It's too nice of a location to not spend some quality time there while sipping on some wine. The owner was very helpful with directions (flooding had closed some roads), restaurants, and any other tourist related questions. He also made sure that a coat that was left behind, made it's way back to Nebraska. The kitchen is amazing and we prepared some delicious meals while we were there. Upon the owners recommendation, we also had a meal prepared by a local chef and catering business. It was indeed a special treat that made the trip complete! We enjoyed the hot tub and outdoor fireplaces every night. It was a perfect place to celebrate a 40th birthday with good wine and even better friends! We'll definitely keep Buena Sonoma in mind when we return the next time to Wine Country!

Our Home Base for a Wine Country Wedding

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Buena Sonoma for a week in advance of attending a wedding nearby. The house is very spacious with an open floorplan, beautiful views from the deck and pool area, and easy access into town or the surrounding wineries. Michael the owner was a pleasure to work with and made himself available for a handful of questions we had during our stay as well. We would highly recommend!

Wine Country Trip

  • 5 of 5

This house was awesome! Beautiful grounds, lovely location, everything we needed. We had 6 couples total and it was perfect for all of us. We toured both Napa & Sonoma wineries and this was a great location for both. We were able to fix breakfast in the mornings and cooked supper one of the evenings, and the house was equipped with everything we needed. We would definitely consider renting Buena Sonoma again!!

This house is perfect. The photos really don't do it justice. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed to cook for a large group and it was far more modern then anything else available. Enjoy your time at Buena Sonoma!

Wine Country Perfection

  • 5 of 5

A group of 11 of us stayed at this property for a bachelorette and we couldn't have asked for a better place. We had plenty of space, enjoyed the wonderful kitchen, and the grounds were amazing. The location was close to many top notch wineries and Sonoma Square but still felt private and secluded. The beds were comfortable and the house had everything we needed. I've stayed at many rentals and it is rare to find one this true to the photos and reviews. We were sad to leave today and would like to come back for a more extended stay next time to enjoy everything the property has to offer.
