About listing

Hello, and welcome to Sonoma and the Sonoma Wine Valley… For years we sought a place that would rejuvenate our souls by making us feel far away, while still being close to the activities that we enjoy: our love of wine, food and life in all its forms… Today we are living that dream and we welcome you into our home: 'Vie du Reve' (living the dream). Our 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms home is located in the secluded hills of Sonoma, but just 8 minutes from the historic Plaza. It's really ideally suited for 3 couples who enjoy vacationing together... From the minute you walk in the door, the view will draw your eyes to the nature that surrounds the property and the peace and quiet that engulfs you. You’ll immediately feel like you’re in your own private tree house and your workday woes will begin to fade away. You enter the house on the main floor that has the living room, kitchen, dining area, half-bath and “top deck,” which is ideal for morning coffee and evening appetizers. Walk down one floor to the middle level that has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. Walk down another floor to the entertainment room on the lower level (great for extended visits when there is more time to enjoy a movie or watch a sporting event). In addition to the “top deck,' there are decks off the master bedroom, the front and back of the house (four decks total). As the sun moves through the day, you can find sun or shade, whatever fits your wishes… In the summer of 2015 we replaced the lower deck, so please view pictures of the new addition. Remember that nights can get chilly when the sun goes down, so pack that favorite sweater. While we are minutes from the historic Sonoma Plaza, you won’t feel it or hear it… YOU are now on vacation!! In our view a good night’s rest is the centerpiece to a pleasurable vacation. Beds are all new and have premium linens. The bedrooms offer quiet sleeping environments… Mornings are truly special at Vie du Reve. If you are the early bird of your group, start your day on the top deck, enjoying a favorite book or cup of coffee as you overlook the tranquil valley of trees that’s behind the house. Or take a walk in the neighborhood, past the local vineyard just up the hill. As your guests arise, they can join you as you plan the day’s events… Once you decide to get going, you won’t have to travel far as wineries, restaurants, walking trails, golf courses and more are all close by. Remember that we are hear as your local resource, so please let us know if you'd like a recommendation. You could truly enjoy your entire stay without driving more than 10 minutes, but you’ll want to explore the world-class activities and surroundings that Sonoma has to offer. The beauty of Vie du Reve is that you, and your guests, can plan the days to match your desires. Relax at home or be active, go out for lunch and dinners or cook at home, Vie du Reve has all the amenities you’ll need (see list of amenities below). If this is a return trip to Sonoma, you’ll probably already have your favorite places. However, if this is your first trip to Sonoma, our Guest book provides suggestions on places to go and where to shop. In advance of your visit, if you'd like a recommendation, just let us know... Evenings provide a great opportunity to un-wind from the day’s events. Do some reading, take a nap or choose one of the decks and enjoy a glass of wine and some appetizers before dinner. The sun sets off the back decks and one of our favorite times of day is when the sun drops behind the hills across the valley. After the sun sets over the hillside, you’ll still have about 45 minutes of daylight before the sun truly sets. The air is pure; evening and nighttime skies are simply beautiful… To help you make your decision, Vie du Reve is most ideally suited for 2 or 3 couples. We realize that one house cannot fit everyone’s needs; therefore, we are an adult-only, no pets and a non-smoking household. While we love children, our 3 levels (including a spiral staircase to the entertainment room) would mean constant supervision. Also (and unfortunately) if any of your guests use a wheelchair or have mobility limitations, we want to remind you that our home has 3 levels. Although you’ll have plenty of privacy, you’ll be in a neighborhood with full time residents (who are wonderful) and you are not in a typical tourist area. Please enjoy our home respectfully and responsibly… We’re glad you are choosing Sonoma Valley and we hope you choose Vie du Reve. We want your trip to be a great one, so please make sure we answer all of your questions.

    If you are looking for a 3 bedroom place in the Sonoma area consider this place. Very well appointed and just like the pictures. Multiple decks with great views (there is a spiral staircase to get to the lowest deck level and family room). Comfortable living areas. All bedrooms very comfortable. Good beds, nice bedding and pretty. The owners were quick on the emails and very detailed and helpful with info on the house and the area. Very clean, smelled so good, nice fluffy towels. We loved the Harvest Moon for dinner on the Sonoma Plaza. I would highly recommend this home in Sonoma and hope to be back! 23 September 2016 - 03:32:00

    6 of us spent a week at Jeff/Jackie's house in early October. Overall the home is inviting and the decks allow some awesome views. The beds, linens, towels, etc were all top notch and very comfy. They even had an extra toothbrush which was great because my husband forgot his. The hot water took a little to figure out, but Jeff was very responsive once we texted him. We cooked a big breakfast each day before wine tasting and found all the supplies that we needed available in the kitchen. My only suggestions to make it perfect would be to add some sort of fire pit / heater, so the patios can be used on cool evenings. Replace the spiral with a conventional stairs (after wine this became a little too treacherous) and add a few more kitchen towels. Overall it worked great for the 3 couples and I'd recommended this for your next trip! Norene G. 24 October 2016 - 17:35:00

    Our group loved the home and were extremely comfortable. It was a reunion of old friends so we enjoyed the intimacy and comfort of the home. After a long day of wine tasting, or in our case a music festival, if was nice to come back relax and barbecue a couple of nights. On the other nights the owners supplied a great list of things to do in the area, including great restaurants. Overall we couldn't be happier. 31 May 2017 - 20:55:00

    Everything was perfect: so clean; organized; comfortable; spacious; great location; thanks for the yummy welcome treats; and the owners' advice about area restaurants, etc was SPOT ON. Wish we could've had more time to enjoy the many peaceful and scenic outdoor decks -- we spent most of our days in the area wineries. I'm rather picky when it comes to cleanliness, and this house exceeded expectations. The photos online give an accurate view of the comfortable accommodations. The owners were so responsive and helpful from the beginning of the booking to the end. They really care about ensuring a comfortable and good experience. I was reluctant to book a private home vs booking hotel rooms for our family vacation, but I hit a home-run with this booking! This lovely home provided the needed space for each of us to have our own spot to rest and relax as well as great gathering spots. I HIGHLY recommend this home! 17 July 2017 - 14:41:00

    Jackie and Jeff's home in Sonoma was absolutely wonderful. Our group of 6 traveled from Kentucky and Florida to run the Napa to Sonoma half marathon. We found their home to be very well appointed, and even had a lovely welcome basket waiting for us when we arrived. Jeff was gracious to provide a great list of winery and restaurant recommendations for the area prior to our arrival. We definitley took advantage of the list when making some last minute plans. The beds were very comfortable, and the views on the decks were amazing. We really enjoyed our stay and would gladly return next time we visit Sonoma! Thank you! 18 July 2017 - 22:28:00

    This was the perfect spot for our mother/daughter visit to Sonoma. So very comfortable with beautiful hillside views and easy access to Sonoma square and the many wineries. We especially appreciated the many tips and suggestions Jeff provided as well as the welcome basket which set the tone for a wonderful stay. Hope to return soon! 30 July 2017 - 00:30:00

    Great for our group of 3 couples. Enjoyed several of the restaurants on Jeff's list and all were fantastic! Highly recommend this home! 12 August 2017 - 00:10:00

    Jeff and Jackie were wonderful and so accommodating. They left us a very generous gift basket which was so sweet and thoughtful! We loved every minute of our stay!! We would definitely stay here again. 27 August 2017 - 13:23:00

    Overall experience was simply awesome! We enjoyed being able to comfortably relax, lounge, and simply be beautiful women in this amazing, well equipped and maintained home. We enjoyed the cleanliness of the home, however we would suggest a deep cleaning as the season is changing and there are a few webs that need clearing. The location is simply breath-taking. The home had everything we needed for cooking, which is a huge plus-thank you. Overall, your home made our girls trip complete. I pray your next guest feel and appreciates your blessing and feel blessed. Thank you Kim & Her Girlfriends 01 September 2017 - 02:09:00

    The home is beautiful, comfortable & the owners thought of everything! Kitchen with all the cooking supplies, extra towels, pillows & bedding. The beds are so comfortable & the tips for keeping the house cool helped. The decks are wonderful! We sat outside every evening until the sun went down. Jeff responded to questions in advance, provided instructions & "how to" use the appliances & gave us suggestions as to what was happening in town. My husband & I visit wine country every year, it was our first VRBO in Sonoma, as we traveled with our parents, brother & sister in law. We were all thrilled with spacious & comfortable home! 26 September 2017 - 16:28:00

    Great location, very comfortable, pictures don't do it justice. It was very comfortable for 3 couples. Would absolutely go back! 04 October 2017 - 00:20:00

    I booked this house for a family trip to wine country to celebrate my mom's 60th birthday. It was absolutely perfect! Beautiful home and perfect size space for us (group of 5) but would comfortably fit a few more. Jackie and Jeff provide a lot of nice touches - the welcome wine and cheese was so thoughtful, mattress warmers for the cool nights, etc. The outdoor patio spaces were amazing and we spent time relaxing and enjoying the views. The guys loved the "man cave" to catch some football. Bathrooms and bedrooms were roomy and the beds were comfortable. Jeff was easy to contact and communicate with and provided a great guide to answer anything we'd need related to the house and the local knowledge guide was awesome - we tried a local coffee shop, some restaurants, wineries and other suggestions on his list and were not disappointed with any, all were spot on! A big thank you to Jackie and Jeff for opening their wonderful home to our family. We all loved it, so much so that everyone said we should book it every year. You won't regret booking this property! 15 October 2017 - 19:21:00

    After having vacationed many years in wine country this property was absolutely immaculate and very comfortable. The owners have taken much pride in the decor and added those personal touches to make the experience that much more. The area is very quite and serene but within minutes to the plaza and all attractions. I would definitely recommend and hope to stay here many times in the future. 10 August 2010 - 22:32:29

    We felt right at home, but at the same time with all the special touches of a fine hotel. The beds were super comfortable, the views were serene, and the owners thought of everything. 16 November 2010 - 02:36:04
  15. Jessica
    Our group of five women had a wonderful time, due in large part to this beautiful home! The beds were super comfortable, the kitchen fully stocked and easy to cook in, and the view was a real treat. The owners were extremely helpful and gracious. Thank you for a wonderful Sonoma experience! 20 July 2011 - 16:42:15
  16. We have three couples that have been traveling together for several years, and we try to stay at homes rather than hotels...we hope to find homes that allow us places to gather together to eat, chat, have some wine, etc., and still have some private spaces as well. This home allowed us to do everything we wanted! We could hang inside or out, the kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals, the space felt open and warm, and the location was private and still very close to town. The owners were accomodating and easy to work with...we highly recommend this house! 10 August 2011 - 18:19:23

    We rented the house for a girls weekend and trying to accommodate a variety of opinions, the house couldn't have been more perfect! The kitchen is fully stocked with every kitchen utensil you could ever need, the house is beautifully decorated and all the outdoor spaces have lovely, quiet surroundings. The linens and towels were also of very high quality. We didn't get a chance to use the media room in the basement, but it was very impressive and a hidden get away if you need some peace and quiet from other guests. The owners were fantastic to work with. They were very responsive and gave us great insights on which wineries to visit, restaurants to dine in and spas to pamper ourselves. 01 June 2012 - 02:45:02

    Our family spent four wonderful nights here celebrating Christmas. It was so perfect for six adults with lots of room for gathering, exchanging gifts and playing games. With three lovely bedrooms on the lower level there was also plenty of privacy.We also loved the entertainment room, an extra bonus. The beds were the most comfortable I have EVER slept on! The house is beautifully decorated and the views are astounding. I could not take enough pictures! Most of all, the owners, Jackie and Jeff, were so responsive and went "above and beyond" to provide information and answer questions. We accidentally left a book there and Jackie personally delivered it to our son the day after I inquired about it. Thank you for a wonderful stay, we can't wait to come back!! 05 January 2013 - 02:12:02

    We just returned from an incredible trip to Sonoma/ Napa. We stayed at Jeff and Jackie's amazing home in Sonoma. The home is in a quite neighborhood and close to town. We took Uber to the town square for dinner and was a 8-10 minute ride. The home was equipped with everything and more you would need on your trip. The decks are great for entertaining and the top deck is perfect for watching the sunset. The home was extremely clean with nice linens and incredibly comfortable beds. Jeff and Jackie were also easy and great to work with. They were always responsive and even had some great recommendations for wineries, restaurants, and other things to do while in the area. If you are considering homes in the Sonoma area I highly recommend this incredible property. 17 May 2016 - 13:30:42
  20. As if vacationing in Sonoma isn't amazing enough, this property was the IDEAL place to wake up, unwind and relax in! There were six of us total (three couples), and we were greeted with a beautiful gift basket that we enjoyed throughout our 3-night stay. This was a continuation of the hospitality the owners had already shown us through our communication prior to arrival and all of the tips they offered us regarding the area. The owners have paid attention to every last detail in the house -- it felt like staying in a luxury hotel, but with the comforts of a home. The views and plentiful outdoor space made for relaxing mornings and evenings before and after dinner. There is plenty of space and we never felt like we were on top of each other in the house. The house is a quick drive (less than 10 minutes) to town. I would highly recommend this property for your stay in Sonoma! I just got back yesterday and want to return already! 26 September 2016 - 15:43:43
