    My sisters and I meet in Sonoma annually for a girls weekend. This is the first time we stayed at Valley of the Moon and plan to go back again next year. The house itself is nicely appointed and comfortable with all the comforts of home. The lovely backyard is the icing on the cake. The owners were very gracious about sharing everything in the home. We like the location since we could live like locals there and be a little bit away from the rest of the tourists but not far enough way to be inconvenient. Perfect location and wonderful experience! 20 October 2010 - 22:14:49

    My son, daughter in law & myself had a wonderful stay in your home. We stayed here in 2008 & were so pleased that we returned. I highly recommend this lovely home for your vacation. The birds were very entertaining this year. 23 October 2010 - 06:52:16

    The accommodations were excellent, the private garden is very enjoyable and relaxing. We found the location very accessible to multiple destinations. We attended the Cline fall celebration and had excellent taxi service to and from. The Sebastiani evening of music in their cellar was also fantastic. 01 December 2010 - 16:01:49

    Four of us stayed in Sonoma in early October, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. This charming rental is a gem! Perfect location, right off of highway 12, but still has a quiet neighborhood feel. The backyard is beautiful, with apple trees. There was a bottle of wine from an area winery on the counter when we arrived. The home was very clean and well maintained. Barry was the best! He was very prompt in responding to any questions that we had. We could email him about anything, including restaurant and winery recommendations, and he would get back to us right away. We had such a great time and would love to return again next year! 16 October 2011 - 03:10:54

    My husband and I just returned from this Sonoma retreat. What a gem! The photo's and amenities are just as described and the owner is quick to reply with any questions/concerns that you may have. The home is conveniently located, with quick access to many wineries in Sonoma and Napa Valley. In addition, it is a reasonable drive to the Pointe Reyes National Seashore and Bodega Bay. When we return to Sonoma, we will definitely stay here again. 19 October 2011 - 02:04:10
  7. My husband and I stayed in Barry's home in Sonoma one weekend in September of 2011 with another couple. Not only was the home absolutely adorable, tastefully furnished and comfortable, but Barry could not have been a more wonderful host. While we never met him in person, he was there with us through his suggestions the whole weekend. The home was exactly as the pictures depict, very clean, and clearly loved. My husband left half of his clothes in the dresser, and Barry, without any sense of annoyance, collected all of his things and mailed them to us immediately! The house is perfect for two couples, with ample space to lounge around. The backyard is such a wonderful and relaxing space, and the apples growing out there tasted delicious! Parking for two cars was never an issue, and we were a very short drive from downtown Sonoma where we had delicious meals. So much wine tasting, so much to do, too little time! I can't say enough about how wonderful this home and its owners are, and I definitely recommend this home to anyone looking for a hassle free oasis at the end of the day! 28 January 2012 - 14:11:50

    We thoroughtly enjoyed our six week stay. It became our home away from home. For a midwesterner, winter morning coffee and afternoon lunch in our own sunny backyard, brimming with yellow roses and fresh apples, was a real treat. The home is beautifully decorated and well located in a nice neighborhood. We recommend it highly for a weekend getaway or an extended stay. 31 January 2012 - 21:45:33

    Very nice house, everything worked as stated and it was very convenient to all shopping and vineyards. 28 January 2012 - 03:22:34

    We loved the small home with the large backyard! The backyard is perfect for dining and hosting friends and family for a nice BBQ. Inside, the decor is great and the beds and linens were comfortable. The house has everything you need, including an easy-to-access washer and dryer. Plus, the owners leave a very informative book for the surrounding areas. It's so easy to get into the main Sonoma Square, and it's less than 10 minutes to several tasty wineries. I would definitely return. 14 March 2012 - 15:53:34
  11. This place turned out to be even more then what we expected. We arrived to an adorable home located about a mile out of the little town of Sonoma. Barry's home was adorable and perfect for anyone who wanted to be in the central of "wine country". The house is decorated nicely and perfect for four people. We were there with our two best friends. This was our first time out on the west coast and in the valley and Barry was so incredibly helpful with everything. The house is a complete GEM and SOOO close to so many wineries. LOVE LOVE LOVE it and would completely recommend this place to anyone who wants quaint vacation home that actually feels like home, with a perfect rose filled garden and back yard that takes all your stress away. Chateau St. Jean Winery (Sonoma) is perfect for a picnic, Benzinger (Partner's Tour- Sonoma) is AMAZING and well worth the $40 they even give you a complimentary tasting for Imagery Estate Winery (Sonoma) which is 5 minutes away from the house. Please go to Arroyo Winery in Calistoga (call ahead) amazing small winery complimentary tasting (up to 4), great wines. Hendry Winery (Napa- Call ahead $20 Tour) VERY informative tour. In Sonoma- Roche Winery tasting saloon is great place to go an relax, Highway 12 wines has complimentary wine tastings, Sonoma Cheese shop is a great place to go pick out those perfect cheeses for your vacation. Barry is very helpful with place to eat, shop, and to taste at. We really couldn't have asked for a better host, home, and vacation! 21 May 2012 - 03:47:32

    Omgoodness, where do I start? Our visit to Sonoma wine country was incredible! We LOVED spending evenings on the patio enjoying the day's finds. The house is very comfortable and it was literally like home-away-from-home. It was conveniently located right in the middle of all the vineyards we wanted to experience...Coppola, Russian Hill, Matanzas Creek (fantastic wine & cheese pairing plus lavendar garden), Siduri, Gloria Ferrer (recommend the tour), Gundlach Bundschu (oldest family owned winery in California) just to name a few! We also enjoyed taking a stroll around the town square. Being a Foodie and a Guy Fieri 3-D follower, we'd also recommend Mary's Pizza (they deliver!), Schellville Grill, and The Fremont Diner. We didn't want to come back! 03 November 2012 - 12:02:37

    My husband and I recently stayed here and explored wine country for our 40th birthdays. We had a spectacular time and it was definitely in part because of this cute little house! It was clean, organized, charming, cozy and had absolutely everything we needed. Everything! We spent evenings here making dinner and enjoying the house with a bottle of wine and spent mornings here for breakfast before heading out to experience Sonoma. The location was perfect for exploring TONS of wineries/vineyards and we found the Sonoma Square to be a short drive and lots of fun too. Since it was our first time to Sonoma, we found the binder at the house (full of local information and suggestions) to be very helpful. There is SO much to see and do! We'll definitely be back and we would stay at this place again - no questions asked! 18 August 2013 - 19:08:20

    Our yearly girls weekend getaway to Sonoma was wonderful. We really enjoyed this home, it was a perfect place to come home to after a day of adventures, it was clean, comfortable and in a quiet neighborhood. Our morning coffee was enjoyed on the patio overlooking the beautiful garden. Barry and Bonnie were great to work with, and we appreciated their quick response to our questions, and the ease of the rental process. Looking forward to our girls retreat next year at this home. 11 October 2013 - 02:22:56

    The house was very comfortable and centrally located. We came up to Sonoma to wine taste and this was perfect. It was very clean and the kitchen was well appointed and the bar be que outside was great. The owner was very accessible when we called with a question and called us back right away. We would stay here again. 11 January 2014 - 01:12:43

    Valley of the Moon Wine Country Retreat is a formal way of saying, "The perfect, peaceful respite; well-appointed and conveniently central to the wine country." Bonnie and Barry are the most gracious hosts, generous in their welcome and thorough in their guidelines for what do and where to go. We've been here now 6 or 8 times and each and every time we want to stay for another week. Two comfy bedrooms, a great kitchen, wonderful backyard and a cozy living room. Perfect for two and still roomy for four (we shared a couple of long weekends with the parents). For a restful getaway to one of the most beautiful places on the planet, stay in this lovely home away from home. 10 January 2014 - 05:18:16

    House is every thing as advertised and fully equipped for a comfortable stay. Barry was very helpful in recommending restaurants in Sonoma and the book in the kitchen lists the favorites. We tried a couple and were not disappointed. We visited a few wineries in Sonoma and also Jack London's home. All of the wineries were worth the visit and most did not charge or there was a very nominal fee. Napa was a disappointment, being too crowded and too commercial. Barry's suggestions for reasonable hotels in SF were also helpful as we finised our vacation there. We would definitely come back. 14 January 2014 - 01:37:21

    We enjoyed our stay at Casa Bonita very much. Even though we live in the Bay Area, it was so nice to be able to spend the day and night and not worry about driving back in the dark.The house is beautifully furnished and the back patio is wonderful. We really liked having a big table for the meals we had and the beds were comfortable and welcome after days of sightseeing and wine tasting. 23 March 2015 - 00:52:49

    Comfortable, convenient, extra touches - just what we needed. Sunny yard was a lovely welcome to Sonoma - as was the bottle of wine waiting for us on the counter. Everything was clean and comfortable. This is not a fancy house. It is a small home in a neighborhood and it suited our purpose perfectly. Very affordable. 27 March 2015 - 15:09:00
  20. We stayed at Casa Bonita during the long 4th of July weekend and had a wonderful time. The house is in a cute neighborhood that's only a quick $9 uber ride from the plaza. The back patio was an added bonus. Very reasonably priced and perfect for our needs. 06 July 2015 - 18:33:04
