    We rented this property last weekend while up in Sonoma for our daughter's wedding. This house is charming, well appointed, and perfect for 4-6 people (including the pool house). But the real surprise is the backyard, which consists of 1/2 an acre of beautiful gardens, a hot-tub, and an in-ground pool. The day after the wedding weekend, we spent a marvelous day just chilling by the pool, enveloped in the memories of a perfect weekend. We are already planning our next stay at this incredible property. The minute you walk into the house, you feel like you're on vacation. I would recommend this property highly. 30 July 2012 - 20:15:40

    We loved the Sonoma Farmhouse and had such a wonderful time! The inside of the house is decorated beautifully and everything is top of the line and immaculate. The grounds are gorgeous and there are tons of fun places to sit/eat outside in the backyard. The saltwater pool is great, a nice temperature and clean. We spent all our time outside. We also had use of the pool house which had a very comfortable pull out couch and was a great place for the kids to watch movies while the adults had cocktails outside. Plus the house is a few blocks from the square and a few blocks from Whole Foods to grab groceries and coffee. You will love this property! 04 September 2012 - 22:41:44

    This recently remodeled home has everything we could look for in a vacation home, including 2 suites plus a well appointed pool/guest house so our whole family could be together for Christmas. The beds are comfortable, the kichen well-stocked and the immense yard beautiful. We look forward to staying here again when the weather is a bit warmer to indulge in the solar-heated salt water pool. This home is also perfectly located, within walking distance to the shops, restaurants and tasting rooms in and around beautiful Sonoma plaza plus Sonoma Market and Whole Foods for groceries and a great running trail. I enjoyed doing business with the owner of this property. He always responded quickly and all transactions were very organized. Thank you. 01 January 2013 - 22:09:02

    We had a wonderful time with our two young children here. It is a lovely home in a very central location in Sonoma, very short walking distance to the square and other amenities. Bob was wonderful to work with, very responsive and helpful in answering our questions. The house is tastefully decorated, clean and well-maintained. The backyard is absolutely lovely, even better than the pictures! I would recommend this house to a friend and hope to rent it again myself. 05 April 2013 - 18:03:03

    We rented the house and pool house for my sister's low-key bachelorette weekend and couldn't have been happier with it! The house is beautifully maintained, neatly furnished and clean. The pool house had the most comfortable sofa bed I've ever slept on - I didn't even know they made them this great. The house was a very easy 5 min walk to the main Sonoma square which saved us the hassle of designating a driver and allowed everyone to come and go and participate in activities as they wished without having to over-coordinate. The yard and pool are WONDERFUL, my absolute favorite part and better than pictured, even. That every bedroom had its own bathroom was an added plus (especially for 6 women trying to get ready at the same time!). Great house, perfect location, amazing yard...highly recommend!!! 08 July 2013 - 14:16:07

    We stayed her for a special treat to celebrate my mother. This place was just right! It has an enormous back yard that is well maintained. The pool is goregous! The house was a perfect match for the three of us. My only suggestion would be to get a larger couch in the living room. All in all we would recommend this house and definitely stay here again. Bob was easy to work with and quick with responses! Thank you for a wonderful experience! 25 July 2013 - 15:31:30

    We (4) had a wonderful stay over the Christmas holiday. The home is in excellent condition; clean, well appointed, and a very short walk to fine restaurants, shopping and the city center square. Sonoma is a unique town, one that visitors always return to. I would recommend this home ti all; you will not be disappointed. 11 January 2014 - 20:28:15

    I am half of one of the two couples who rented this property for Thanksgiving weekend of 2013. Property management is excellent - from booking to check-in to handling of the one small issue we had suring our stay. The home is well appointed and spotlessly clean. We couldn't decide whether we enjoyed the inside of the home, or the lovely backyard deck, pool and jacuzzi more. Centrally located - we walked around town more than we drove. None of us wanted to leave. Highly recommended! 14 March 2014 - 14:59:29

    We loved the Sonoma Ranch house! It was perfect for two couples! Walking distance to town square, tons go great restaurants, and shops. If you are there on Tuesday walk up to the farmers market and have great food and music. Very comfortable beds and linens, use of the washer and dryer was also a plus! This property is impeccably maintained and the yard and landscaping is beautiful! The pool was also a plus for the summer. We loved our stay and will be back! 18 August 2014 - 20:46:25

    Everything about the Sonoma Farmhouse Ranch was perfect! The house was beautifully decorated and very clean. The grounds were gorgeous and we were glad we were able to make use of the pool. It's the perfect location and it was so convenient to be able to walk to restaurants and shops. Bob was great to rent from! He answered emails quickly and gave great suggestions of things to see and do. Also we got our security deposit back very promptly! 13 October 2014 - 01:29:32

    Sonoma Farmhouse Ranch is very conveniently located within easy walking distance of downtown Sonoma shops and restaurants. The house is lovely, especially the grounds and pool. It is the perfect place for a relaxing stay. We definitely enjoyed our stay and would recommend it! 17 May 2016 - 13:35:52

    We had a lovely stay here. The house and grounds are beautiful and very well kept. We only wish it had been warmer so we could enjoy the pool more. The house is in walking distance to restaurants, grocery store and wine tasting. We parked and never moved them the entire weekend. It was the perfect place for our mom's getaway. 19 May 2016 - 08:04:41
  13. We stayed at the Sonoma Farmhouse for a girls' weekend and had a wonderful experience. A group of us rented the main house and the back cottage. It's perfectly located within walking distance to Sonoma Square and amazing restaurants, and it even has its own little vineyard vibe going on in the back yard. We spent Friday afternoon lounging on the back patio enjoying our own private wine and cheese situation before walking into town for dinner. Went wine tasting all day Saturday, then came back and stayed in to make our own meal. On Sunday we enjoyed coffee on the patio overlooking the beautiful backyard -- a totally relaxing weekend! Such a great VRBO find. Would definitely recommend to anyone! Thank you for making it a special weekend. 27 July 2016 - 19:55:08
  14. Malinda M.
    Had an excellent three nights here for a wine tasting weekend with four women. Walked to town for take-out to enjoy with a bottle of wine by the pool one night and walked into town for dinner the next. Also walking distance to a lovely bike shop that sent us out on a tasting-tour of the local vineyards. Property was clean, well-supplied, completely updated, and extremely convenient! Would stay here again in a heartbeat. 30 September 2016 - 20:49:27

    Sonoma Ranch House The ranch home was perfect for us, two adult couples. Very close to the plaza in walking distance. Excellent restaurants and shopping. The ranch home was very nice and well equipped. The backyard was amazing even though it was too cold for us to use the pool. We would highly recommend this home for a visit to Sonoma. The owner was very nice as well and his assistant Mary. Reviewer location Madison Wisconsin Date of arrival September 29, 2016 12 October 2016 - 01:00:21

    This house was perfectly set up for our family of 4 and Bob was so accommodating. The yard and pool are amazing and the perfect oasis, my 3 years old is an explorer and loved everything about the backyard. The location is ideal and central to everything Sonoma has to offer. We can't wait to go back!!! 18 May 2017 - 05:55:00

    I had a wonderful experience at the Sonoma Farmhouse. The house is centrally located in town and is within walking distance of the town square, which was wonderful. The house itself is a great size with two bedrooms, two baths and a great living room and kitchen area. The real gem of the experience is the wonderful pool and outdoor area where we ate breakfast every morning. Our only real regret is not spending more time on the property. Bob was kind, accommodating and a great host. Highly recommend. 20 May 2017 - 22:17:00

    Sonoma Farmhouse is WONDERFUL! Very comfortable, had everything we needed for cooking and relaxing. Bob was awesome, very friendly and so knowledgable about the area (his restaurant suggestions were spot on!) The back yard pool is the icing on the cake, spent a lot of time there unwinding ... just what we needed! Will go back! 08 June 2017 - 19:20:00

    We had a fantastic time! The Ranch House is gorgeous and perfect for 4. Everything was clean and safe. The yard is huge and made for a relaxing day soaking in the October sun. It is very close to the Sonoma town square which made everything so easy. We can't wait to come back! 30 October 2017 - 18:18:00

    We are a family with young kids who was in town for a family wedding. We truly could not have been more pleased with our stay at the Sonoma Farmhouse. The house has two beautiful bedrooms with private bathrooms that worked great for our kids. The living room and kitchen were great. The pool house was way beyond our expectations and worked great for our babysitter that stayed with us. The pool is separated from the house by quite a distance so our kids could be napping and we could be swimming and talking by the pool and it would not wake them up. It is an absolutely beautiful pool and so peaceful. The back yard is so big and private! Everything was very clean and decorated beautifully. Lastly location, location, location. We could walk to Whole Foods, Wonderful Restaurants, and the square in minutes. I really have no complaints and would definitely stay here again. 26 July 2013 - 03:56:55
