Our patio and garden area are a standout and have been called by some "a little slice of heaven''. There are walkways meanderng thru the large well manicured flower filled yard.

The patio itself has the same Italian tile that the house has. and it has a nice big firepit surrounded by large Adirondack chairs, A patio set with four comfy chairs and an umbrella for outdoor dining as well as a 48' Vermont Castings gas grill. There is also a flagstone patio with another sitting area in the sunshine it is wonderful on those days you want to just enjoy the sun the flowers and the quiet.. except for the birds and the squirrels. The yard is filled with 400 yr old Valley Oak trees and offers a Wonderful 'ZEN' like setting. These words are how most of my guests have described the yard and most say they don't want to leave even for dinner as they want to spend time in the garden and patio. I have flowers in the yard year-round as gardening is my hobby so it is always easy for me to make it beautiful as I love it. The patio and garden area is surrounded by little white mini lights in the evening for a magical feel .
This cottage is for people used to only the best. I have hosted two PGA Golf PRO's while they played the Charles Scwhab Cup Champions tournament. They both wrote nice reviews and loved my attention to detail. Ask me who they are?
Evening times you can hear the sound of crickets from the nearby Sonoma Creek and either that or the waterfall will lull you to sleep...I am a designer/developer in Lake Tahoe and put my experience to work in making this a perfect wine country getaway!!!
READ the reviews and you will see how very special this cottage is.

About the owner: We are both in the real estate business David full time realtor Helen a developer/designer in Tahoe. We have been in this business most all of our lives and own and manage other properties ..We know what we expect when we travel and we try to do the same with the first class amenities we provide and the immaculate condition we have the cottage in for each guest.. David was born in SF and grew up in Redding CA where he was a fire Captain for CDF. He retired early to join Helen in the sales business. I was raised in Los Gatos CA where I worked with the family business of development and property management .. We love to travel and go to new places but enjoy Maui the most!! We have traveled a lot and look forward to more but mostly we love to golf and travel to places where we can play the local and resort courses. We love Sonoma area for the golf and the closeness to the SF area as we love the theater also.
Why the Owner Chose Sonoma, CA, USA:
We love the convenience of the property to all the wineries and the Sonoma Square. It is within walking distance for our guests and the wineries are within five min from the cottage. The cottage is in a quiet neighborhood.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We love our little cottage and you will find that it shows and it has a warm and happy feeling the min you walk thru the door!! We have some guests who have returned to visit our cottage now as many as six times.. When you walk in the front door you can see out to thru the big French doors the beautiful yards with big large old oaks and the white roses that climb the fence, the flowers and the big fig and meyer lemon tree. Truly a gorgeous sight. The quiet is Zen like and some have called it my "little slice of heaven" it truly is. Come and stay and see for yourself!!
