Sonoma House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 8-10

Only 1.5 miles from Sonoma's Historic Plaza in the most coveted East-Side neighborhood of Sonoma, this retreat is surrounded by vineyards and gorgeous country lanes leading to the Plaza - an easy walk or bike ride away. There are events every weekend at the Plaza and nearby are the finest restaurants in the Valley. The house is also ideally located for wine country touring in in all the valleys of Sonoma and Napa. Napa county is only 10 minutes away.

The property is located a block away from the historic Old Wine Road and walking distance to the most famous and oldest wineries of Sonoma. We offer 10 bicycles so you can explore the town and wineries. There are 9 adult bikes and 2 kids' bikes, including helmets and bike locks. We also have a EV charger in our garage for your electric car.

Set on a half-acre there is a large front lawn and porch as well as a large back lawn with a new pool and spa. The deck of the kitchen goes to the pool and a wisteria-covered arbor with outdoor fireplace and large outdoor dining table that seats 10. There is a stainless steel gas grill for outdoor cooking and entertaining. The pool has an automatic, recessed safety cover that keeps it clean and warm. Near the pool is a pool shed with lots of pool toys. Comfortable seating on all decks and porches, extensive lawns, large oaks trees and flowers provide a perfect setting for outdoor dining, pool time and relaxation.

Inside the house there is a large, open eat-in kitchen that is fully stocked with views through large sliding glass doors to the back yard. The large kitchen island can seat 8.

The living room has a fireplace and 42' flat screen TV complete with call cable channels. The living room bookcase is filled with books to read, including many wonderful books about Sonoma. There are board games and puzzles and a Bose sound system and dock to play your music. Stepping through the French doors from the living room is the outdoor dining area with fireplace for ideal indoor/outdoor entertaining.

The single level home is spacious and can sleep up to 10. We contemplate that large groups will include children and not more than 8 adults. There is a large master suite with king bed private master bathroom. The limestone master bath includes a soaking tub and separate shower with skylight. The guest bedrooms include one with a Queen bed, one with a Full size bed and one with four bunk-beds.

The mudroom has a large washer and dryer and there is a hair dryer and other amenities in the bathrooms for your convenience.

If you are interested in more room for a larger group, we offer another house for 6 right across the yard from this one. Please email owner if you are interested in booking both houses together.

About Hilary Billings

Hello! We are the Billings family. We are a family of six and live in San Francisco. We have dreamed of owning a property in Sonoma for years.

Hilary Billings purchased this house in 2012

Why Hilary Billings chose Sonoma County

We purchased this home in 2012 and just completed a full renovation of the property. Only 45 minutes from our home we love coming to Sonoma and enjoying the wonderful warm weather. There are events every weekend in the Town Square and so many things to do. We look forward to sharing this wonderful place with you!

Amazing, Beautiful, Magical, Luxury+ Family Home

  • 5 of 5

I can not say enough about this rental property. We actually rented both of the owners' homes, and my children lovingly referred to it as the "compound" for the five nights we stayed over Thanksgiving. Hilary, the owner, is so very accommodating and responsive with questions or other needs. Because we had 4 grandchildren with us, we wanted to be able to use the pool/hot tub and Hilary was wonderful to make this happen for us. The property itself is in a fantastic location. We are all runners so loved running toward Sonoma Square on the bike/jog path. The bathrooms and bedrooms are top of the line in terms of linens, comfort, decor and warmth. Our favorite area was the very spacious and open family room and kitchen. The island is huge and we loved gathering around it each morning and we finished our evenings there as well. The pictures do not do this home justice. Did I mention the outdoor furniture? Thick cushions on chairs that surround the pool--more comfortable than many beds!

My family of 14 is still talking about the amazing time we had, and this home is the reason why. With four adult children and their significant others plus grandchildren, we have learned that if they all have their own space/bedroom, everyone is happier. Because we rented Hilary's other home around the corner with backyards that connect with each other, we moved back and forth between the two homes. Really, it was the perfect set-up. If you're on the fence about renting this home, I can guarantee you will be so happy you chose this one!

One more think--the Sonoma Wine Association hosts a Holiday Open House every year on the Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving. We bought 10 tickets, hired a driver through Wine Tours, and had the time of our lives. I'm still amazed at $45 per person, we were able to visit up to 17 wineries and the price included the tastings!! Plus, many of the wineries had appetizers out for us. Epic experience and I highly recommend it if you're in the area for Thanksgiving.

Perfect Wine Country Home

  • 5 of 5

Our week in wine country was perfect, and this house was the cherry on top. It is modern, bright, and spotless. The kitchen has every amenity that one could need. Although it rained for most of the week, and we couldn't spend as much time as we wanted outside, our group of 6 adults never felt cramped or on top of each other.

The house is only a mile or so from the Sonoma square with lots of great restaurants and tasting rooms. And several wineries are also close by. Our group unanimously gives this house a 10/10.

We were so thrilled with this rental. The house is absolutely beautiful. The decor is lovely and every little detail down to selection of dishes and cookware is very carefully thought out. We very much enjoyed the pool and outdoor eating area. Wonderful Sonoma experience!

Absolutely beautiful, spacious, modern home.

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I stayed here for my bachelorette party and toured the wineries. We all absolutely loved this house. It is spacious with a very large kitchen and plenty of room to sleep many people comfortably. The pool was wonderful, and we ate outside one night on the patio with the fireplace going! Not enough words can express how much we enjoyed our stay here!

The bikes was an added bonus! We biked to a winery and to downtown Sonoma!

A perfect stay in Sonoma at a wonderful house!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay in one of Hilary's homes. In a past year, we rented her smaller one, and this year we stayed in this larger one. Both are beautifully remodeled and maintained. She has such nice taste, and thinks of everything.

This August, we stayed at the larger house for four weeks. It was great! The location is very convenient to Sonoma Historic Square, and also for driving back to San Francisco if desired.

The furnishings are all new and very attractive, in a modern style that is pleasing and useful. I like the layout of the house. It's good....four bedrooms, well-laid out around the large kitchen and family room.

The pool is one of the best features, it is generously sized, and there is a hot spa with jets.

The yard is huge... we practiced our frisbee throwing. There are lots and lots of bicycles ready to ride in the garage.

The outdoor dining area is very large and includes a a gas grill.

Hilary is a really good owner, manages the property well, and is available for a quick question or email.

In summary, this is my favorite place in Sonoma for a modern, well-maintained property at a reasonable price, with all the conveniences, in a great location. Highly recommended!
