About Brigette Prater

Looking for an escape from busy lives and summer fog, we found the perfect location just an hour's drive from San Francisco. We've lovingly renovated our retreat, Casa Soleado (sunny home), into a happy, magical space perfect for gathering with family and friends. We've fallen in love with the mellow vibe, welcoming community, beautiful countryside and all that Sonoma has to offer. We're certain you'll love it as much as we do!

Perfect Sonoma Valley escape!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have imagined a better place to stay for our Sonoma vacation! Bridget is amazing, and has everything in the house we could possibly have needed- including a very welcoming bottle of wine! It was the perfect layout for 2 couples, and the perfect location to explore Sonoma Valley and relax! The only TINY downside to our stay was how hot it got in the house without A/C- but the highs were high 90s-107 degrees while we were there, which is not terribly characteristic for the area, and it just gave us more of a reason to enjoy the pool :). We would come back to stay here in a heartbeat, thanks Bridget!!

Perfect home for a girls weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home near downtown Sonoma. Well maintained and decorated very nicely. Enjoyed the backyard space in the evenings after wine tasting in Sonoma and Napa in the afternoon. Hope to be back soon!

Loved This House!

  • 5 of 5

Just came back from spending a long weekend in Sonoma and we loved our stay at Casa Soleada. The house was clean, charming and has an awesome backyard. I was there for a mom's weekend away (4 adults) and we fit comfortably in the house. It is not a massive place, but it is was very nice, complete with new furniture, linens and decor. The kitchen had everything we needed and the french press and milk frother were a fun bonus. The house location is perfect - about a 5 minute drive (if that) to the Sonoma Square. The owner, Bridget, was also so sweet in sharing with us her favorite restaurants and winery recommendations, as well as leaving us a bottle of wine to welcome us in the home. I would definitely go back and stay here. I also think if you wanted to bring a family this is a great house for that. They had a pack n play in one closet and kids movies and games available. There is a washer and dryer and the backyard with the pool, fire pit and pergola with charming outdoor lighting was a place I could see my family enjoying so much!

The home was wonderful. The backyard pool area was peaceful and beautifully landscaped. Even prettier than the posted pictures!!!

Wonderful host and in a great location to walk or bike ride into town. It is an open open floor plan with great interior decorating. Just charming.

We will be back for sure!!!
