About Steve Shepard
I have lived in the Bay Area my entire life and have no intent of leaving. Between Marin, Sonoma and Tahoe I can; bike, hike, ski, eat, dine and play just about anything with some of the worlds great people.
Steve Shepard purchased this House in 2013
Why Steve Shepard chose Sonoma
Having lived in the Bay Area my entire life I truly believe Sonoma is one of the great hidden gems of the world (and yes I have traveled extensively. The best comparison I have found is the slow pace of Southern France) Where Napa may have the name for wine, Sonoma has access to all the great wine PLUS small old town charm. The Sonoma Square (one of two, Healdsburg is the other) offers a relaxed atmosphere that has not changed 100 years. This is also the birth place of California for the history buffs. El Mirador (from Spanish, from mirar to look, affording a view of the surroundings) offers unparalleled views from Mount Tamalpais past Mount Diablo, in the middle, through the east bay. Truly amazing on a clear day. All while less then 5 minutes (under 2 miles) from the square. Read the reviews as pictures just cannot do it justice. The house was fully remodeled in 2014 and has all the bells and whistles you could ever ask for while keeping the quite of this tranquil hilltop location. You will not be disappointed.

a little bit of heaven
The property is quite beautiful and inside the home is well appointed. The beds are like sleeping on a cloud. I would recommend if you are thinking about renting this property you just hit the button!
Wonderful family retreat
Our stay at El Mirador was wonderful. The view was beautiful and the accommodations were lovely and comfortable. Steve was incredibly responsive to any and all questions. Location was terrific and we were close to many wineries, hiking trails, and restaurants. It was a perfect getaway.
Fantastic house for a family
We loved our stay here. It’s a beautiful property, and the home is well maintained. Lots of extras like shampoo/conditioner/laundry detergent/cooking spices provided by the owner. Fluffy robes from Restoration Hardware are in every bedroom.
Luxurious and comfortable
This house was beautifully decorated and appointed. Beautiful views, comfortable bedrooms and amazing kitchen and pool. It had all the amenities of a 5 star hotel.
Steve was very helpful during the booking process and throughout our stay - his property was just as described on VRBO.
Loved the big spaces that made our company sit-downs productive and personal. Pool was great, as you might expect. Kitchen was awesome with all the stuff you need to prepare your own meals. Just delightful all the way!
A perfect Sonoma house
This house has one of the best views in Sonoma and the organization and layout of the property was perfect for our group of six adults. A private gated lot gives you the privacy to enjoy the property and the pool. The large, adjustable umbrellas were perfect during our time during the record heat wave. The master bed and sheets were likely the most comfortable we have ever had the pleasure of sleeping on. We would recommend this to anyone staying in Sonoma or wanting to visit SF and stay in the country for excellent views, wine and food.
3 minute drive to the square, yet in the country side!
