Lovely private space

  • 5 of 5

It's a nice large space with a comfortable bed, a HUGE tv, and a bathroom with heated floors, oo la la. As I age I have less interest in crawling into a clawfoot tub and the shower has a tendency to overflow onto the floor, but those are minor points.

It was just a few minutes into downtown Sonoma, and we also explored the area (drove out to Pt. Reyes, etc.) - it's a really good location.

The owners are very organized, responsive and friendly, all of which was really amazing considering we were visiting right after the wildfires.

We enjoyed our stay very much. The bed is comfortable and there is Peet’s coffee and fresh half and half in the little fridge. The bathtub is amazing. We will definitely be back! Thank you so much Geraldine and Joe!

Private and clean, oh and GORGEOUS!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Sonoma. The cottage was absolutely gorgeous, impeccably clean and had everything we needed. Joe met us when we arrived and showed us around and told us how to get around town. I wish we could have stayed longer and if we head back to Sonoma some day, I would love to stay with Joe and Geraldine again. Thank you for sharing your beautiful cottage with us!

Neat, tidy, quiet and well located studio apartment.

  • 5 of 5

What delightful accommodations at Geraldine and Joe's! Impeccably clean and neat, very close to downtown Sonoma and all it's fun shops and restaurants. Plenty of space in the very large studio with nice outdoor seating both front and back, gigantic TV(fun for watching sports!), and nice little touches like coffee and cream, a few sweets, and nice towels. I'd recommend this highly!

Excellent property, hosts, and location.

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for a wedding and to explore Sonoma. We stayed here 3 nights and loved it. Everything inside was very nice and very clean. We absolutely loved the bed and the shower. One evening we sat out back and had some wine and cheese. We felt secluded in our own little area and the view from out back is excellent. It's great having a nice TV. As others have pointed out, you don't go to Sonoma to watch TV, but we had it on while we were getting ready and while we wound down at night.

Joe and Geraldine were extremely nice and helpful. I like that they wanted to meet us and give recommendations on places to go. If socializing isn't your thing, don't worry, they aren't intrusive at all. I enjoyed talking with them and getting tips from them as locals.

Thanks, Joe and Geraldine! When we return to Sonoma we hope to book your place again.
