The house was perfect and as advertised.

  • 5 of 5

Love Sonoma, the people and the house. We were there as the fires broke out and the people of Sonoma are some strong, wonderful people. I can't wait to visit again when things are better for this wonderful city. Rent this house, you won't be disappointed.

Perfect in Every Way

  • 5 of 5

The house is very stylish and comfortable. The 2 master suites were a real plus, since we were 2 couples traveling together. We enjoyed the hot tub a couple of evenings. Being so close to the square is very nice, as there are so many good restaurants to visit and nice shops and galleries.

We would highly recommend this bungalow for anyone visiting Sonoma!

Best of Sonoma!

  • 5 of 5

Located just minutes from restaurants, grocery stores and boutique shopping this place is perfect for a Sonoma get away for 2 couples. The house was impeccably clean and comfortable. There is a hot tub and bikes to use, good WiFi and TVs. We spent our evenings on the cute private patio. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need to cook. Micheal and Valerie went out of their way to ensure all our needs were meet prior to and during our stay. Highly recommend!

Great location and superb accommodations

  • 5 of 5

We spent five wonderful nights at the Broadway Bungalow. Despite facing the busy Broadway St., it was very quiet indoor. The tranquil and shady backyard was a nice oasis away from both the air conditioned indoor and the scorching heat outdoor. The interior rooms are all spacious and tastefully decorated, and the air-conditioning provided comfortable temperature, although I should have asked for more detailed explanations of the settings and adjustments on the thermostat. The state-of-the-art washer and dryer were excellent but perhaps a little too large for economical use for short-time guests like us with small washing needs. The top load washer was so deep that I had difficulty in taking out the small items after washing. I particularly loved the spacious and well equipped kitchen with a great gas stove and useful utensils. This was the first VRBO rental I stayed in that provided sharp knives! There were many staples, perhaps left by previous guests and the owner, and I added some when I left. The only quibble I have is the sizes and weights of the china and glass wares: they were too large and heavy for easy handling. This might explain why some plates and bowls showed some chips.

We loved the small but sophisticated town of Sonoma with great restaurants and a particularly excellent Sonoma Market. We would like to return to this charming town and this great vacation home.
