About Robert

Diana and I are both retired and we love buying, decorating and renting great vacation properties.

Robert purchased this house in 2011

Why Robert chose Sonoma County

We love Sonoma wine country and believe it to be one of the best places to live, work and play. It is only 45 miles from San Francisco and 40 miles from the Sonoma coast and it has everything you need for a relaxing vacation.

Lovely, tranquil property.

  • 5 of 5

Lavender Hill cottage was everything we needed for a visit to wine country. The house was very clean and held all the provisions we needed to make our stay comfortable. Very quiet neighborhood and the home also provided wonderful privacy on the outdoor decks. We also loved the proximity to the city of Sonoma.

Unfortunately, we needed to cut our stay short as a result of the heartbreaking fires but look forward to returning in the future!

Owner's Response: Dear guests, we know how frustrating it is to lose power! However, as soon as the power was restored we decided to open our home to any Sonoma resident whose house had been destroyed. We believe Wine Country is the most beautiful place on earth, and now we know that there are some very fine people here, in addition to very fine wines!

Lovely cottage!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Lavender Hill Cottage for 4 nights in August. We found the cottage to be just lovely! It had all the amenities we could have wanted and was extremely clean & comfortable. The stocked wine fridge was definitely a great perk! No added charge for the wine we drank...just replace it with a comparable bottle. Definitely need a car for the location but it was still very convenient to markets & Sonoma Square, which has some great restaurants. We will surely return as 4 days was absolutely not enough!

As Great as Promised

  • 5 of 5

So many VRBO units look great online, and then you get there and it's more Meh than Wow! But this cottage was every bit as good as we hoped. I have stayed in probably 100 VRBO units over the last decade or two, and this is the second best one (#1 was in Hawaii and impossible to beat). The Lavendar cottage is very well laid out, with a great, updated and spacious kitchen and a wrap around patio. There are actually 3 bedrooms here, not 2, so you could sleep 6 here. The bedrooms were nice, had good mattresses, and secluded and comfortable. The bathrooms are fine too and include a ton of extra toiletries in case you need anything. Also the kitchen had a lot of food basics for cooking, which is great so that you don't have to buy salt and pepper and butter and stuff like that to cook.

It's a funky neighborhood, but really nice trees and interesting houses and landscaping and great for walks. Lots of birds and squirrels doing battle. Also saw several deer in a field nearby. The cottage sits atop an arroyo, sort of surrounded by other houses, but there are so many trees around that you really don't notice the other houses, giving you the feeling of having your own quiet retreat.

The TV in the main room is fine, along with TV's in both bedrooms. We used the gas fireplace which was nice (but required a long stretch to light). We used the grill on the deck and it was fine too, and we ate both indoors at a large kitchen table and outdoors on the patio.

The only negatives, and these are very minor, are that the driveway is a bit tricky to pull into. The tree leaves on the patio are kind of sharp, but is just an issue if you are barefoot. The website shows a wine cellar, but that was not available. The owner and the neighborhood value their peace and quiet, so if you have a rowdy group, you should look elsewhere. The arroyo carries sound very easily.

The unit is just a mile or two from town, with a great produce stand very close, as well as a coffee house and bakery. We were about 5 minutes from wineries and tasting rooms in Sonoma, and about 45 minutes to get to Napa.

The owner was really nice and professional to deal with. The price was fair and a much better value and property than staying at a hotel or corporate property. I would absolutely stay here again. 1500 sq ft is perfect for a group of 4-6, the kitchen and main room are great, the patio is beautiful and tree-shrowded, the bedrooms are comfy, and the location is solid. I highly recommend!
