About The Owner

We Are John and Liv. We live in San Francisco with our two children and enjoy the outdoors, great food, friends and family.

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why The Owner chose Sonoma

Love the atmosphere and weather.

What makes this house unique

Privacy, space. Can walk out to vineyards and stroll over to a large pond and watch the egrets and other birds. Swim all day without having to share the pool with a mass of people. Great for small groups getting together to relax and reconnect and for families with children. We have made it really kid friendly.

Peaceful Retreat!

This is our second stay at this property. We love how close it is to downtown yet you feel like you are in an oasis. Liv & John are wonderful owners and the property is simple and well appointed. We look forward to our next stay!

The houses, property and pool are all excellent. What made our stay even better was the professionalism of the owner. When we first arrived there was a minor hicup that we had to deal with. Once I told the owner about the problem she immediately resolved the situation and made sure the rest of our stay was enjoyable.

Lovely stay in Sonoma

  • 5 of 5

Great property - the grounds are beautiful, the home very clean and the studio very well kept, as well. The owner is very responsive and a genuinely nice person. We have now stayed here twice and loved every moment. Quick 5-10 min drive to most Sonoma wineries and a few great options within a mile from the house. Only issue was a non-working remote! Great experience all around. It's a house with a lovely vineyard view, with a pool and a grill perfect fora small group of family or friends.

Must visits: Cornerstone and Obsidian Winery on premise there. The gardens are beautiful too.

Stunning Property minutes from downtown Sonoma

  • 5 of 5

The property was lovely with a beautiful yard, pristine pool, and lots of lounging space. The house and guest studio were both cozy and clean. Most of all, the owners were kind, organized, and helpful. I'd highly recommend this as a getaway spot!

Not maintained and dirty

  • 2 of 5

Stayed during winter holiday 2015. House needed thorough cleaning including sweeping under furniture/couches. Kitchen was dingy. Vents and air filters were extremely dirty. Lawn was unkempt and over grown. Only 2 burners were functioning during our stay. Disappointed especially for the price and it being our first time visiting wine country. Didn't leaving a good lasting impression of the area with these accommodations.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry that it was in the condition. It was the start of our winter season and sparsely used during this time of year. I wish you had let me know so that I would have been aware of our cleaning services lack of professionalism. Had I known, I would have had them go back out to clean twice over again and address anything that needed cleaning and or fixing. We have since updated our cleaning crew to ensure high standards are met.
