About the property

2 Bd/2 Ba .. Everything You Could Want to Escape the Ordinary

Timeless style and good taste abound at the Sonoma Gracious Getaway.

You'll notice the peaceful, quiet neighborhood as soon as you turn down the lane! The tree lined cul-de-sac is just one of the many charms of this home. This home as the perfect retreat, a place to relax and unwind after a day of Sonoma fun. Please note: late-night outdoor activity is STRICTLY PROHIBITED.

Open the front door and take in the living room's breathtaking floor to ceiling imported limestone fireplace ... then step into the fully equipped gourmet kitchen to find every cook's culinary need anticipated and filled.

The beautiful adjoining solarium is bathed in bright sunlight and beckons you to read an interesting book or magazine – or just take a restful nap.

Three steps down to the rear flagstone patio there’s a 5 burner Charbroil gas grill and stylish teak furniture –dining set, conversation set and 'couples bench' -- all with comfy pillows. Colorful market umbrellas will keep the hot, mid-day sun at bay. But after the sun sets, the flagstone patio becomes an enchanted setting with twinkling Tivoli string lights. On chilly nights warm yourself under the two propane patio heaters or just thoroughly relax in the gazebo-covered, 4-person Fantasy Spas hot tub with a soothing waterfall feature.

Upstairs in the loft you can take in a wide variety of cable shows on the 50” Panasonic smart flat screen television. And if you prefer, dozens of classic and popular DVD movies are available for your viewing enjoyment.

In addition, high speed internet makes surfing the web on your laptop or tablet a breeze. If you just can't get away from work, a comfy chair and desk are provided. Key-less entry and Xfinity total home comfort system makes it easy to control central heating and air-conditioning as well as some lighting from the simple-to-use console.

When the star-filled wine country sky tells you you're finally ready for a truly relaxing night's sleep, both bedrooms are outfitted with brand new, top-of-the-line Sealy Posturepedic queen mattresses and 400 thread count sheets. Extra pillows and blankets are conveniently available in both bedrooms for your sleeping comfort.

Enjoy a large rain shower head in the master bedroom's shower. The second bathroom has both a bathtub and shower. In both bathrooms you'll find Paya organic bath gel, shampoo and conditioner as well as thick, fluffy towels and washcloths. Hair dryers, ironing board and iron, razors, sewing kit and other amenities are also available.

For early risers, grab a quick cup of coffee from the Keurig or fill the French Press and take it out to the front yard teak bistro set to enjoy the sun rise.

Before heading out for the day's adventures, create a delicious breakfast in the dream wine country kitchen.

Begin the day tasting at some of the country's best wineries. Fill the house picnic hamper for an easy, alfresco luncheon. Spend the evening at a world class restaurant OR gather ingredients at either of Sonoma's farmers markets or one of our local upscale grocery stores (Whole Foods or Sonoma Market) and make your own dinner at the Sonoma Gracious Getaway. Don't forget to garnish with fresh herbs grown just outside the solarium door.

As a precaution, we do ask that our guests purchase the minimum level of Property Damage Protection from CSA. A security deposit will be held in the event of any noise complaints.

Why Vicki Vaughn chose Sonoma

The wine country inspires my creativity. World class dining and wines along with unparalleled natural beauty in a unique area of Northern California is what we love about our place. My husband and I have been coming to Sonoma County for years and finally decided to acquire a permanent getaway.

What makes this house unique

The moment we walked in the front door we knew this was meant to be our place ... from the professional stove and ovens to the high end finishes was exactly what we were looking for. Everyone told us we'd never find the 'perfect' house but we did...and now we want to share our little slice of heaven with you.

Sweet little retreat for a Sonoma getaway

  • 5 of 5

Worked perfectly for our trip to Sonoma for the weekend. Each couple got their own bed and bath. Cozy spaces to relax after a day of wine tasting and a great kitchen that we used to make breakfast each morning. Quick Ride to the square for dinner. Would definitely stay again and have already recommended it to others.

Beautiful, modern cozy home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay to celebrate my 40th birthday. The house was a perfect size for 2 couples. The kitchen was fantastic with all the spices, oils and cooking essentials you could imagine. The bedrooms and bathrooms were clean and updated. The owner was extremely accommodating and attentive. She also gave us lots of tips to maximize our stay. We hope to come back to Napa in the future and would definitely come back to this house!

Overall just perfect

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property with fruit trees all over the back yard. A very well equipped kitchen that can save some money eatting out every night. Only 2 miles from Sonoma square. Which is a 11 to 14 dollar uber ride. Platypus tours will pick up from this location and take you on a vineyard tour. A perfect home for the weekend get away

Wonderful Stay in Sonoma

  • 5 of 5

What a great home! Very nicely furnished, comfy beds, great showers, and a wonderful sun room! The yard was nice and quiet and private - great spot to wind down after a day in the wineries. We had a private chef prepare dinner for us one evening and the kitchen was well stocked with cookware, utensils and great appliances. Thank you, Vicki, for sharing your home with us!
