We visited Sonoma with 5 friends to celebrate a birthday and a wedding anniversary and could not have asked for my from our rental- the La Prenda Vineyard Victorian was exceptional in every way. The space was well appointed with all of the comforts of home-- the kitchen had more than enough of everything we needed to prepare our own meal; there was great space both inside and out for spending time together; and the bedrooms were perfect for quiet time apart. We simply could not have asked for anything more- thank you for sharing your space with us! Cheers!!
We stayed at the La Prenda home for 4 nights recently. There were 5 of us in total (+ small dog) and we would have been comfortable in this spacious home if we had twice as many guests. The pictures are accurate, but do not convey in total, how impressive this property is in person. Everything, including all furnishings, landscaping, appliances, towels, etc, are in top notch condition. The home was spotless. Every cupboard and drawer were labeled on the outside with the contents inside. You can't imagine what a timesaver it is to not have to open every drawer to find a spoon or spatula! The only issue we had was the AC not working in master bedroom. Since we only used the room at night, we were comfortable with the fans, so we didn't complain. Midway into our visit, we took advantage of the complimentary tasting and tour offered by the owners, Erika and Ned Hill. Do not miss out on this opportunity!! Our visit with Ned was the highlight of the trip. Well, I happened to mention the AC issue in passing to Ned, and it was fixed by that afternoon.
You will need a vehicle to get into town (about a 5 minute drive). You will want a car anyway to visit the amazing nearby towns, such as Glen Ellen, Napa (obviously), Healdsburg, etc. We enjoyed great meals at The Girl and the Fig, Glen Ellen Star, and LaSalette.
Ned and Erika are perfectionists. We have stayed in many VRBO homes throughout CA, and this is by far the nicest one. They go above and beyond to make it a special experience for visitors. I recommend this home without any hesitation!
The beautiful house is exactly as advertised. I stayed with a large group of girlfriends who flew in from all over the country to enjoy time catching up and relaxing while also enjoying all that Napa Valley has to offer. The house is cozy, comfortable, beautiful and spacious. My girlfriends already inquired about staying again in the future!
The pictures don't lie. What you see is what you get, and this house is siply awesome! I stayed here recently with 11 of my closest girlfriends in a trip through Sonoma Wine Country, and we absolutely loved it. It is a beautiful home, and it is huge. Not once did we ever feel cramped in this house, and we took full advantage of all it has to offer. Well worth it! Just book far in advance as it appears to be pretty popular!!!
This house is great!! A group of friends and I rented this house for Bottle Rock 2014. We all loved the house so much it made it hard to leave to go to the festival every day. It is a very good location if you are looking for a wine country get away with friends. Ned and Erika have made the house very easy to stay in for guests and have paid attention to small details. Did I mention the hotub?? I highly recommend this house and hope to rent it again one day! The only problem is that you will be sad to leave it!
Perfect Family Retreat! A beautiful, immaculate and comfortable home for all ages. Not only does the house have plenty of beds and baths but, it's very spacious and has many areas to relax or play. The kitchen was fully stocked and they even provided games and toys for children as well. The gated, front yard was large enough and safe for the boys to ride their scooters. Thank you for sharing your relaxing and VERY accommodating home!
