Stay Information



Property Details

Includes Wine Tasting Passport

The House. We call it a Cottage but it’s really a full house, with two bedrooms, two baths, gourmet kitchen, private garden and hot tub. It’s a great place to share with friends, family, or just that someone special!

The Location. Sonoma’s historic Town Square is the heart of the California Wine Country and it’s all just around the corner from Cottage Sonoma. Walk to wineries and wine tasting, historic sites, and fabulous restaurants.

SPECIAL: All adult guests at our vacation rentals receive a complimentary Sonoma Valley Wineries Passports providing access to discounted tastings at 20 Sonoma Valley Wineries (some exclusions apply). Many wineries charge $25-$40 per person for wine tasting, so the savings add up quickly.

The house is designed for 4 guests however we have a cot which we can provide if there's a 5th guest. There is a modest $50 per night guest fee for the 5th guest.

This property is just 1 block from the Historic Sonoma Plaza - So we highly suggest you make reservations in and around the Plaza so you can walk to each location.

Great stay! We’ll be back. Hunt was very responsive and everyone was really friendly. Easy, clean and comfortable stay. Location is amazing. Slept really well in the beds!

by Review from Airbnb Guest #229150


Great location, cute house. Just as described. Had a small hot tub issue but great communication and it was dealt with very promptly!

by Review from Airbnb Guest #223504


Absolutely loved the house! It was spotless, comfy, convenient! Kitchen had all the amenities! We would definitely stay again!

by Review from Airbnb Guest #203110


This place was amazing! Location was superb to wine tastings, park, restaurants and more. We were greated with a nice bottle of wine, cheese and coffee! Lots of books and pamphlets to let you know what to do in town and surrounding area. Kitchen was well stocked and backyard was nice to relax in. Very clean! We will definitely be staying here again

by Review from Airbnb Guest #201145


We had a great stay here. It was the perfect size for us and the other couple we traveled with. Beds were comfortable and we each had our own private bathrooms which was nice. The kitchen was well equipped and had everything we needed to make breakfast each morning. You can’t beat the location, just a short walk to the plaza. It was nice to be able to walk to dinner after a day of wine tasting. We used the hot tub a few nights which was nice, but the chlorine was really strong so we didn’t stay in long. Overall we had a great time and would definitely stay here again!

by Review from Airbnb Guest #199234


Perfect for the 3 of us attending a wedding. Super close to the town square, cafes, shopping etc. Proximity to grocery store was a plus. Would stay there again!

by Review from Airbnb Guest #198717


Great home, beautiful location and amazing backyard! We walked downtown each night! Super close to everything.

by Review from Airbnb Guest #197470


Right off the Sonoma Square, walkable to everything, cute, and comfortable. We will happily stay here again the next time we are in the area.

by Review from Airbnb Guest #192335


The location is wonderful, walk to everything. Host very responsive and flexible. The home is very clean and beds comfortable. The kitchen is fully equipped for any type of cooking, very large refrigerator. Highly recommend this home if you enjoy great restaurants and wine tastings.

by Review from Airbnb Guest #185476


The home was absolutely perfect! The layout was great for 2 couples and we walked everywhere in Sonoma. We had a wonderful time!! The queen bed is also the most comfortable bed I’ve every slept in!

by Review from Airbnb Guest #185474


My friends and I planned a last minute new years girls' trip to Sonoma after our flight got cancelled due to storms, and our stay could not have been better! The cottage is so adorable and cozy and very spacious. It was very well stocked and we were able to most of our meals at home. Beds were sooo comfy and we all got amazing sleep and had no trouble sleeping in every day. Hot tub was an amazing plus and we enjoyed using it for multiple nights! I think best of all is the location, it is unbeatable—walkable to Whole Foods, wineries, super cute boutiques, restaurants, parks, and more! Also the property manager was super responsive to our questions and provided very clear instructions for everything. Overall we loved our stay here, could not recommend more!

by Review from Airbnb Guest #170680


The cottage at Sonoma was absolutely perfect. Located a block from the town square and walkable to pretty much everything. The house was well stocked with everything you need and was a great home base to relax and enjoy the courtyard or hot tub. We will definitely be back!

by Review from Airbnb Guest #167783


Amazing stay!!! If you are traveling with kids this spot is perfect. From the moment we walked in we were so happy and it set the tone for the rest of our trip. This house is so cute. The rooms are a nice size and one of them opens up to the backyard deck. The backyard is beautiful and perfect for our family so the kids could run around and play! The towels were nice and fluffy and I loved that they had a nice array of pillows with different levels of firmness so everyone had their prefect pillow. You CANNOT BEAT this location. Just a few minute walk to downtown Sedona with cute shops, restaurants, and a wonderful park/playground. The host/property management company was super communicative and I definitely felt that if anything came up they would promptly respond (though we didn’t need any support during our stay). I would recommend this property to anyone!!

by Review from Airbnb Guest #154581


Perfect location to Sonoma Square! Immaculately clean and super cozy. Highly recommend!

by Review from Airbnb Guest #149055


Great house and great location. We had a wonderful time.

by Review from Airbnb Guest #141716


Adorable cottage in a great location! Great communication - highly recommend!

by Review from Airbnb Guest #141072


We loved staying at Hunt's place. You cannot beat the location and the property itself is beautiful. Plenty of space for 4 people with a great kitchen & outdoor space to enjoy the weather. The wine passports provided were a huge bonus as they included half of the wineries we wanted to visit anyway, cutting our cost at each place in half. Would stay here again!

by Review from Airbnb Guest #140215


We loved our stay at Cottage Sonoma! The house is quaint but had everything we needed for four of us to be comfortable. Our favorite part was the location and how easy it was to walk to everything in Sonoma Square - especially some great restaurants like Sunflower Cafe for breakfast and El Dorado Kitchen for dinner - and just a short drive to some amazing Sonoma Valley wineries. Would definitely stay again!

by Review from Airbnb Guest #133424


Walking distance to the square.

by Review from Airbnb Guest #128013


We had 2 couples for a getaway. The place is in a perfect location. Walked to dinner every night, was able to have pizza delivered and there is a small back yard that is perfect to hang out. Convenient location to Sonoma valley and Napa is about a 15-20 min ride.

by Review from Airbnb Guest #124591


Awesome house! Everything was comfy and clean. The hot tub was great! Convenient location

by Review from Airbnb Guest #116617


Wonderful location. And adorable home.

by Review from Airbnb Guest #106336


Location couldn’t have been better! The house was perfect for getting to downtown Sonoma and the great spots to get dinner or just a drink. Also would definitely recommend taking the short walk to grab coffee in the morning from Scooteria.

by Review from Airbnb Guest #105193


This rental was absolutely perfect! Can’t beat the location. Was spotlessly clean. The kitchen had everything we needed. The backyard with the hot tub, grill, deck, and even the lemon tree really stood out as extra fun amenities. Thank you for a great place to stay in Sonoma. Would rent here again for sure!

by Review from Airbnb Guest #104546


Such a nice stay!! My 12-month year old twins and I loved it!! Thank you so much, Hunt!!

by Review from Airbnb Guest #102059


We really enjoyed the space. Super clean and comfy and a great location. Loved the nice wine and welcome basket. Lovely back yard and perfect for downtown Sonoma restaurants.

by Review from Airbnb Guest #100869


A 2 minute walk to the city square and a hot tub in the backyard - what more could you ask for?

"Wine Country Wonderful!!"

Exceeded our expectations and perfect choice for a getaway with dear friends. The cottage was charming, excellent location to the square with many special touches. Look no further— book this now for your vacation to wine country.

"Well appointed cottage convenient to the square"



We enjoyed our stay at Cottage Sonoma and appreciated the owners’ efforts to make our visit wonderful


by Patricia Barnes


Loved the cottage and proximity to the square!

"We loved this home. It was spacious, clean, and an amazing location to walk to the square."

by Allison Brown


The home was beautiful and the layout worked very well for us and my mom to have bathrooms attached to our bedrooms. The house had everything you will need during your stay (and more!). Will be back next time we come to Sonoma!

"Great place!"

by Emily Grazaitis


This house was amazing and in great proximity to everything! We will definitely be back!

"Wonderful convenient cottage!"

by Holly Wilson


Great location and very well stocked cottage.

"Beautiful back yard, well equipped, bright and sunny kitchen, comfortable beds. Fantastic location!"

by Cyndy Hanson


Perfect location for a fabulous Sonoma vacation.

"Always a pleasure!"

by Justin Remmelts


This was our second time staying here and we will return again! The cottage is in a PERFECT location to access the Sonoma square and walking distance to great restaurants and tasting rooms. If you are looking for a wonderfully kept cottage with great location then look no further.

"Perfect location, wonderful home"

by Ethan Lucarelli


We just spent a week at Cottage Sonoma, and I have to say it was one of the best home rentals I've done across half a dozen states and three foreign countries (including three other stays in Sonoma). The location is wonderful. A short walk to the square, but still away from the bulk of the foot traffic. So close to shopping like Whole Foods or 7/11. And in a perfect location to hop in your car and quickly get out of town on Hwy 12. The house itself was very well maintained and had all the amenities and kitchen accessories you could hope for. The A/C was extremely effective, which was important on this very hot week, and the washer and dryer were large and new. The management was very easy to reach and highly responsive, but completely hands off if you didn't need them. And the back yard/hot tub combo were perfect for relaxing at the end of the day. This is an ideal house for two couples, but with the pull out sofa, could easily accommodate slightly larger groups.

We had an amazing stay. I couldn't recommend it more highly!

"Our daughter going to Sonoma St. University"

by emery medeiros


Our family attended orientation for Sonoma St. We stayed at this great cottage. Very nice stay. we will be back very soon.

"Surpassed expectations!"

by Samantha Egan


This was the first time I ever experienced a situation when the actual house was better than the pictures. This cottage was gorgeous in a fabulous location. We were able to walk nearly everywhere. Byron was accessible, accommodating and provided very clear and helpful instructions in the guest book. I also appreciated his restuarant recommendations! A truly amazing place.

"A perfect getaway!"

by Amber Lerma


We loved our stay! The home is beautifully updated and everything worked as far as we know. The garden is gorgeous and relaxing. It’s a terrific location, right next to the downtown shops and restaurants. The pull out bed has a thin mattress but most of them do, so no surprise there. It was a cozy time together for the five of us. Thank you!

"Great location and house"

by Patricia Lafferty


The house has a large kitchen with deck and backyard. Very nice!

"Absolutely Wonderful Experience"

by Stephen Miller


I have stayed at several properties found through VRBO. This property is hands down the best place yet. Everything you need is there. The owners have thought about what is needed to make your stay enjoyable and haven't missed a thing. The kitchen is my favorite spot and this one didn't let me down. I only regret that I wasn't there long enough to take advantage of the grill outside. I wanted to see if the electric Weber would work. It is in a very convenient location and off high traffic roads so no street noise. Walking distance to where ever you need. Comfortable and quiet. No one ever bothered us. I highly recommend this for a great Sonoma experience.

"Feels like home, only better!!!!"

by Katherine Benziger


This Sonoma cottage is absolutely perfect for a wine country retreat! Truly feels like home but better because there is no stress!

"Wonderful stay, great location."

by Terry Hagen


Clean, bright property. Small but 2 master rooms with baths. 1 block from the square..great spot.

"Great location!! Cheryl C"

by Cheryl Minardi


Stayed here for a girls weekend!! I highly recommend this cottage! walking distance to restaurants grocery stores and wine tasting!! The property was lovely, bright, cheerful!! Beds were very comfortable Very clean, open kitchen nice deck and lovely backyard with hot tub!!

"Always a Pleasure"

by Anne Ritchie


We enjoy returning to Cottage Sonoma whenever we're in the wine country. We couldn't think of a better place to stay. It's conveniently located--just a short walk from downtown Sonoma--and a pleasant place to return to in the evenings, perhaps for a soak in the hot tub.

"Great house and great location"

by Patrick DeVane


House was very clean and can't beat the location.

"Great location in Sonoma!"

by Robert Barnett


My family attended a wedding in Sonoma and stayed at Cottage Sonoma, which is one block from the town square. Great location! Unfortunately we had to deal with quite a bit of rain and cold weather the 1st 2 days, but after the sun came out we were able to explore the surrounding stores, restaurants and offerings of town square. The house was great, very clean and well kept in a quiet neighborhood. No problems whatsoever, and we look forward to our next visit to this beautiful part of California!

"Love this Sonoma Cottage"

by JoAnn Clay


We have stayed here multiple times, and have spent three months here most recently. Great kitchen with all the appliances , utensils etc. needed to be a gourmet cook, Love the location . You can walk to restaurants, grocery stores, wine tasting rooms, bocce ball courts, farmers market. It has become our winter home.

"Wonderful Sonoma location one block from town square."

by Howard Graybehl


Well appointed entry leads in to an open, sunlight lit kitchen and dining area. Perfect for small parties. Kitchen is well equipped if you want to cook. Bedrooms are comfortable.
Spent 8 nights in the cottage over Christmas and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Hope to return.

"Wonderfully relaxing!"



We have stayed at this property several times. We have become repeat renters because this house is very clean and well appointed. It is comfortable, the kitchen has everything you need to make a great meal, and the hot tub is a great way to relax after a long day of wine tasting!

"Perfect place to stay in Sonoma!"

by Stacy Hulley


Everything about the cottage was wonderful! You can’t beat the location being walking distance to Sonoma Square and nearby markets. The amenities were top quality, especially the hot tub. They even had a pack-n-play, high chair and stroller you could borrow if traveling with a kid. We hope to stay here again in the future.

"Perfect location."

by Rebecca Ratcliff


Loved this cozy and fully stocked home just a short walk from Sonoma square, shopping and restaurants!!

"A great location and perfect environment for 2 couples to relax."



From start to finish the booking and accommodation were seamless and exactly as described. The beds were very comfortable and the layout of the house perfect for everyone.

"Great house in perfect location!"

by Nellie Hohne


The house was very clean, well stocked and just a block away from Sonoma Square. It had everything we needed...parking, great kitchen, toiletries and lots of local information. The owner was great to work with and made everything very easy. We would have preferred firmer beds, but that wouldn't keep us from staying there again. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

"Wonderful and quaint!"

by Lain Brown


We had the best time on our girls trip and this cottage was a large part of it! It is located so close to the square! The owners are so thoughtful and have things labeled and easy to find. They also had staple items available for you if needed. Typically when staying in a rental with a kitchen it is completely bare and you have to buy everything. They had individual packets of things which made it so nice. We had a lovely experience here and can't wait to go back!

"Perfect Location"

by James Carpetis


Wow talk about being in the center of all Sonoma has to offer. Great house, great location and we really took advantage of it. We walked to Whole Foods 3 minutes away. We walked to the Sonoma Grille 3 minutes for a wonderful dinner. Visited Kunde wines, a must see loved the cave tour and at night enjoyed the deck and hot tub. We called to report a mishap with the patio umbrella do to a gust of wind and the management couldn't been nicer. All in all a great time !

"Fantastic cottage near the square"

by Tami Wilkinson


My two daughters and I had the best time on our first trip to the wine country. This place is immaculate. The kitchen contained everything you could possibly want, down to packets of creamer for our morning coffee in the fridge. The beds were extremely comfortable, the bathrooms were fully stocked, and the hot tub was a nightly hit. We loved relaxing amongst the beautiful flowers after visiting some of the great tasting rooms and delectable restaurants. There are so many fun shops within steps of this cottage. I've stayed in a lot of short term rentals and this has been the best by far. The owner has done such a fantastic job of outfitting that you truly want for nothing and we never had a reason to reach out for assistance because everything is so well laid out. The fresh flowers in the bathroom were a delightful touch. I will definitely be staying here next time I'm back in the area. Thank yo,u Byron, for making our providing us with such a remarkable experience.

"Could not have found a better place!"

by Michael Turpen


The pictures do not do this home justice. It is a lot bigger than expected.. The living area is nice. The kitchen/dining area is huge. The back yard is wonderful! The beds were very good.. Having two bedrooms, each with their own bathrooms, was perfect for two couples. It was a short 4-5 minute walk (one block) to the Sonoma Plaza. It was easy to get in and out of town each day, heading to the vinyards in Napa. The home was new on the inside; loved having a washer/dryer. I highly recommend.

"Great stay!"

by Megan Heegan


We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful cottage. Beautiful, clean home with a perfect location. Walking distance to many delicious restaurants and the town square.

"Fantastic location with everything we needed!"

by John Downes


The cottage is so close to Sonoma Town Square, and such an easy walk for dinner, drinks, ice cream and everything else. Byron has provided everything anyone could possibly need! The kitchen is well organized and perfectly stocked. While we never got to use the hot tub because we were so exhausted when we got back from the vineyards, it looked great, and the water was super clean which is always the case with hot takes work to keep the tub clean and Byron's team gets the job done!

We've stayed in HomeAway properties in the US, Europe and Asia, and this cottage was among the best we've ever rented. When we come back to Sonoma, we'll definitely stay here again. Thanks!

"Beautiful property and an awesome location"

by Stephanie Morris


Gorgeous backyard and the hot tub was a real treat in the evening. Awesome location with ability to walk to many tasting rooms and restaurants. And the interior is beautiful and really well appointed (well stocked kitchen, too). We will definitely stay here again!

"Perfect location!!!"

by Mark Overdevest


We stayed here with friends and it was the perfect location. Walking distance to restaurants, wineries, and grocery stores. Loved the quaint cottage and really felt Ike home.

"Great weekend getaway to wine country"

by Joanne Hart-Aguilar


After staying in this cottage I would never book a hotel in Sonoma again. It was perfect for 2 couples and is in such a great location. We were easily able to park, get to the raceway, and walk to town to enjoy the local bars and restaurants. The only mistake we made was not staying longer!


by Rob Altomare


Everything about the cottage was perfect. Very well kept. Nice amenities. Great size. Beautiful back yard. Excellent location a block from the square! Highly recommended!

"Felt like home"

by Katherine Benziger


My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cottage Sonoma. Truly felt like home!

"Cottage Sonoma is perfect!"

by Ysleta McDonald


We enjoyed our stay at Cottage Sonoma so much! The home is beautiful and comfortable and felt like home.

"Great location and beautiful home"

by Kari Riegner


We really enjoyed our stay at the cottage Sonoma. It was in a great location just right off the square. Easy walk to restaurants and wineries. The home was also very nice with comfortable beds, a nice sized, well stocked kitchen and a nice backyard.

"We’ll be back"



Did a mother/daughter getaway recently and this house was the icing on top of a great long weekend. Everything we needed (the bathrobes were a lovely touch). Perfect location, terrific kitchen, comfy beds, great to have two baths------and the hot tub was a great way to wrap up the day. Little things like an easy-to-use thermostat and handy extras in the bathrooms and extra blankets in the closets and coffee in the kitchen made a big difference. Nothing but good things to say, can't wait to visit again. Owner and manager were easy to reach and pleasant to work with.

"Most impressive"

by Rene Bruckner


We really felt fortunate to have found this rental. The house is clean and well kept, has a huge kitchen, and is in a truly prime location, one block from the Sonoma Plaza. Ideal for a family of 5 or fewer, or maybe for 2 couples. I suppose one of the down-sides is that it isn't very secluded, but the proximity to the plaza is really fantastic.




Cottage Sonoma was truly a home away from home. The location close to the square made everything we needed within walking distance. The spacious kitchen and dining room table was the major spot for entertaining friends and family while we ate and played games. Of course, proximity to wine country made it all even better. Anything that Byron Jones rents is always top class.


by Becky Bickett


We stayed at this house in December with one other couple for a 50th birthday trip. It was perfect. Very clean, well stocked with everything we needed to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. We cooked breakfast in every day and walked to the Plaza for dinner. The location is fantastic and Byron was wonderful to work with. Highly recommend for anyone looking to rent in this area!

"Beautiful cottage with great location"

by Edward Rupert


We thoroughly enjoyed our time in this clean, bright home. All the amenities you need and so close to downtown Sonoma. Better than the pictures. A lovely stay in a great place.

"Convenient, clean, and cozy"

by Mary Stone


We very much enjoyed our stay at Cottage Sonoma. It is in a perfect location for restaurants and shopping on the Sonoma Square. It also was very clean and very comfortable. We would stay there again if the opportunity presented itself.

"Wonderful cottage. Everything we hoped for."



We loved Cottage Sonoma. Close to the Plaza and all the restaurants. The cottage was lovely. Everything you needed. Just wonderful!

"Very cute"



Very nice property. Such a cute and comfortable cottage. Would love to come back.

"Can’t wait to come back to Cottage Sonoma!"



Arrived on a Thursday afternoon and opened the door to loveliness - the home is soo spacious and welcoming. My boys loved the long hallway and running around in the backyard. We appreciated the short walk to the Square to have dinner, cheese or letting the boys run around and play on the play structures. We enjoyed wine tasting at Lasseter & Gundlach Bundschu as well as a dinner out at Aventine (Glen Ellen).

We come to Sonoma quite frequently and have to say, this is one of the best homes we have rented! You will definitely enjoy Cottage Sonoma if you are lucky enough to reserve this place!

"Cottage Sonoma"



Cottage Sonoma was a delightful place to stay! It is very clean and comfortable with many amenities. Best of all it is in a great location. We were able to walk to the town square to shop and eat. I would highly recommend this cute cottage!

"Perfect mini vacation in Sonoma"

by Janine Ferderer


This great little house is perfect for a small family or two couples vacationing together. Only one short block from the Plaza, you can walk to dinner, shops and wine tasting in the square. It is also within walking distance of a Whole Foods for stocking up on any groceries you may need for a long weekend.

It has two bedrooms, each with its own private bath, super comfy beds and a huge kitchen with everything you could think of.........from simply making coffee in the morning to cooking a full breakfast or dinner in the evening. It also has a lovely patio and backyard for relaxing in the evening and enjoying those wines purchased during your wine tasting day.

The only caution I would add is that it is a very small driveway and since it is so close to downtown, there's limited street parking. We only had one car so it was not an issue but having more than one car to park for the weekend might be difficult.

Thank you, Byron.......We will definitely be back!

"Location, Location, Location!"

by Melissa Cortez-ROth


We booked the Cottage Sonoma for along weekend in July. We wanted to be walking distance from the square, but preferred a house to a hotel since we were going with another couple and thought it would be nice to have the extra space. Just a block of the square, we were able to enjoy wine tasting and dinner out without having to drive. There is also a Wholefoods two blocks down, which is perfect since we decided to stay in and cook one night. The kitchen had everything we needed and the backyard is nice to sit and relax. My only complaint would be the pillows. They were a bit too flat for my taste, but lucky for me i usually bring mine with with me!

"Home away from home"

by claire lawson


An immaculate and extremely well equipped cottage in central Sonoma. Beautiful open kitchen/dining room with deck seating and bbq overlooking a small back garden. Beds a little soft for our personal taste but very very clean and comfortable accommodation with easy access to both Sonoma and Napa wine country. Highly recommended.

"Great Stay and Great Location!"

by Michael Simpson


The Sonoma Cottage was the perfect place for a weekend getaway. We couldn't have asked for a better location, walking distance to shopping, restaurants and walking/biking path. A very clean and spacious home with backyard, deck and hot tub! We would recommend this property for anyone visiting the area.

"Great place for a relaxing stay!"



This is a clean, well equipped place to stay. We cooked in every evening, and having the grill and well equipped kitchen is great for that. The back yard is a great place to either enjoy the hot tub or just sit on the deck and enjoy the garden. The location can't be beat for a walk to the town square, or a nice walk on the bike path or the trails behind veterans park.

"Great Location in the Heart of Sonoma Plaza Area"



We had the pleasure of staying here as our base to celebrate my wife's 40th birthday and our 15 year wedding anniversary. It had everything we needed and was a 1 min walk to Sonoma Plaza which made it easy to grab breakfast and just walk around the shops and tasting rooms. It was also a great home base for our visits to several of the nearby wineries in both Sonoma and Napa. Both couples commented on how comfortable the beds were and the front room and back patio were great places to hang out and catch up.

"Cute, convenient, close to city center and cozy."

by null null


Two couples used the Cottage Sonoma for our base to explore the Sonoma Valley. The Cottage was very clean, neat and well furnished. Parking for one car was fine. Did not use the Hot Tub, but sat on the backyard deck in the evenings and found to be very pleasant. Short walk to Town Square, restaurants, Church and Seven 11. Would use Cottage Sonoma in a heartbeat in the future.

Good job and thank you,

"Darling house, great location"

by Lissa Weimelt


Thanks for a great stay! We have stayed in many VRBO's and this one was right up there with other very nice properties. Ideal for the 4 of us, the yard, privacy and closeness to the Plaza was great! Kitchen was wonderfully equipped and the rooms very comfy. There could be a bit more usable storage in the bathrooms (rather than decorative storage) but for a few days, you can work around that easily. We will be back and hope to stay here again! Thanks for a very nice house in great condition.

"The Perfect Cottage"

by Debbie Moreyra


Cottage Sonoma is located in the perfect location, less than 2 blocks from Sonoma Square, Whole Foods grocery store, wine tasting rooms, restaurants, shopping and a park. The 2 bedroom each with en suite bathrooms floor plan is ideal for a family or 2 couples. The cottage is impeccably clean, professionally decorated and well equipped with everything you will need to make your stay even more comfortable than your own home. We enjoyed the warmth of the cottage and relaxing on the deck in the back yard so much that we cancelled our dinner reservations and grilled in the evenings. We definitely plan to stay at Cottage Sonoma on our next visit to California wine country. Thank you Byron, for making our stay very special.

This cottage is wonderful, quiet, close to the Square, and very peaceful... Well worth the time spent here... From the comfortable beds, the well-stocked kitchen, & the hot tub, the overall 'feel' leaves you feeling you have been on a weeklong vacation from the two days we stayed at the cottage...

"We Loved This Cottage!"



We have previously stayed with our friends at one of this owner's properties: Auberge Sonoma. We loved that condo off the Sonoma Square and we love this cottage equally. Very thoughtful in the decorating and the functionality of living in a cottage. Each of the two bedrooms has en suite bathrooms and the kitchen is amazingly well appointed. We lacked for no cooking utensils, baking dishes, baking sheets, etc. We actually ate in every night because the deck and outdoor table and grill were perfect for us after a day of viewing lovely scenery and visiting wineries. We were a very short walk from the Sonoma Square, one of our favorite places to be when we travel. The cottage is located in a very quiet neighborhood and within walking distance of markets, bakeries (love Basque Bakery and their offerings!), restaurants. We would stay at this location again in a heartbeat. Thank you, Byron, for making our trek out to Sonoma always so enjoyable. See you next year.

"It doesn’t get better than this!!"

by Tom Malensek


We have stayed at Auberge Sonoma before and thought that was wonderful. This time we stayed at Cottage Sonoma and it couldn’t get any better. The kitchen/dining area is large and such a great meeting place as well as a place to hang out. The kitchen is one of the best stocked kitchens of the many VRBOs that I have stayed at. The backyard is private and the deck is inviting. Sitting there for breakfast, lunch or dinner and watching the different birds, especially the hummingbirds, is very relaxing. The close proximity to the Sonoma Town Square is nice. You can walk to restaurants, shopping, coffee, and so much more. There is an all purpose trail just a block away. I can’t say enough about this wonderful and comfortable rental. Most importantly, the place is very clean and well taken care of.Also important to mention is that voicemails and/or emails are promptly returned. Thanks to the proprietor, Byron, for maintaining a great place that makes you feel like your at home. We will definitely stay at one of Byron’s places again.

"Perfect getaway!!"



This house was the perfect location for easy access to the square and all the restaurants. A short drive to so many others! The hot tub was easy to use and the emails before we arrived helped to clarify any details we needed. The rooms were very comfortable and the house was perfect for two couples. Kitchen had all the cookware we needed and the grocery store was only a quick two block walk away. Book this house!! You will not be disappointed!

"Great Location, comfortable beds"



Fantastic location, adorable house.

"Very clean, and a great location"

by Christine Hardenberg


My family came to Sonoma for a four day wedding event. Cottage Sonoma was walking distance to each event. We were so close that my 87 year old mother could walk with us everywhere. The house has a great floor plan, in that people can be taking naps, while others enjoy cooking and socializing in the kitchen. The beds were so comfortable that when you would just lay down and put your feet up for a minute, you would fall asleep. The kitchen was well equipped with quality, Henkel, cookware.

"Centrally Located Cottage"

by Ansari


Cottage Sonoma is walking distance to the Town Centre where all amenities were available and the cottage is ideal for short-term rental. As UK citizens booking it with very little insight to the property was helped through by the owner.

We found the cottage had very comfortable beds; fully kitted kitchen and furniture of good quality. The cottage also had air conditioning that we found very useful as the local temperature soured over 100 degs.F during our stay.

Our only concern was the cottage lacked maintenance and we put this down to our rental falling at the tail end of the summer season!

We arrived at the cottage around 9 p.m. and as we entered the cottage we could not switch the lights on in the lounge whereas the rest of the cottage was fine. The following morning we contacted the manager who visited the cottage and found all side lamps not working - one needed a new bulb; one wasn't plugged-in and with the third she had to fiddle about to get the switch working. There were also some 7/8 down-light bulbs under the kitchen units that didn't work. These were not replaced throughout our stay. We found the air vents very dusty and as I suffer from asthma this caused me quite discomfort. Nothing was done about this even though the manager agreed the vents were filthy. During the second night of our stay the kitchen smoke alarm kept bleeping even though we had not used the kitchen during our first two days stay.

All such issues should be checked out at the cleaning / change-over stage before the rental to enhance the guest experience. The cottage though great obviously requires someone to check everything on a regular basis and to make the guest experience great in the future we would advise the owner to put in place a maintenance checklist and equally from time to time visit or better still stay a night or two to check out the facilities functionalities.

"Sonoma Cottage"

by Claudia Edwards


We Stayed here to attend a family wedding and it was just perfect and much less expensive than any of the hotels in the area. The house is very clean, and fully equipped with everything you will need right down to spa sandals and robes for the hot tub. The back yard is lovely and the house is only a block away from the main square. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it highly!

"Cottage Sonoma"

by Gena Gruber


The cottage was a comfortable, clean, and an attractive place to spend five days. The cottage was spacious enough for the four of us. It had all the amenities that we needed. We used the hot tub a couple nights and it was very relaxing. We loved being so close to town and walked to town two or three times. Overall we would love to go back there again!!!

I would have liked a small dresser in our bedroom because we were there for a wedding and it was a little difficult to find the space to store all our clothes in our room, otherwise, fantastic place!!


by Margaret & Paul O'Driscoll


Fantastic location, beautiful well equipped home. We loved everything about it. Look forward to staying there again.

"Sonoma Cottage"

by Kristy King


My husband and I stayed in the cottage for our honeymoon and loved it! The property and home were perfect! We especially loved the very private backyard and hot tub and the easy access to the town square. We had rented a different property from this group before and were not disappointed either time! Thanks for making our stay in Sonoma so special.

"Sonoma for son’s wedding"

by Elayna Cross


This was the perfect place for our family to stay for our son's wedding in Sonoma. The cottage has everything we needed. It is within walking distance of the Plaza with all its shops & restaurants. I'm reading to visit Sonoma again & stay at Cottage Sonoma!


by Lisa Van Dusen


My husband and I drove up to Sonoma from the Peninsula with another couple on Friday evening - and when we crossed the threshold, we immediately felt relaxed and "on vacation". Everything was in perfect order, beautiful and functional - a winning combo. We had a lovely, short walk to the Square for breakfast Saturday morning, my husband took a beautiful run beforehand and we look forward to going back for longer soon. Oh, and the beds were incredibly comfortable. We slept so well!

"Absolutely wonderful Cottage"

by Patty Leibold


My sister, brother-in-law, husband and I stayed at Cottage Sonoma. We loved the Cottage. We could not think of anything that was lacking. It was close to the Sonoma Square for dinner, shopping or wine tasting, but also had a grill for cooking there. Everything we needed was accessible, labeled, written in detail also with many restaurant options. We had a wonderful stay!


by Michael Tormey and Dolores Caliso


This cottage is absolutely PERFECT . . . great location, clean, two updated bathrooms, beautifully decorated, comfortable beds and pillows, a well stocked updated kitchen, backyard with flowers, paved patio, and hot tub. A wonderful house to share with friends and family.

"Adorable Cottage"

by Brd Evans


My family absolutely loved our week-long stay at this cozy yet well appointed cottage within a block of the cute town square of Sonoma. The beds were amazingly comfotable and my wife fell in love with the soft pillows. The owners took the time to create a complete notbook of the area haunts with maps and reviews of all the local businesses and eateries. We would highly recommend this cute cottage to anyone of our friends.

"Great Cheerful Location"

by Judith E. Salter


We stayed for a weekend here to enjoy biking among the Sonoma wineries. This cottage is painted in yellow throughout so you feel like you are sitting in sunshine no matter the weather outside. The kitchen is completely furnished. The bedrooms are spacious with well appointed baths. The hot tub was divine after a long day of riding, It is two blocks from downtown and two blocks from the bike trail. The cottage was spotless. Like other renters, I found the beds too soft.

"perfect getaway"

by mary rudd


We stayed for a week, wish it could have been longer! The house is in a great location to be able to walk to great restaurants, shopping, some great wine tasting rooms, the bike trail and hiking, but still in a relatively quiet neighborhood. The hot tub was great for after long days of wine tasting. The kitchen has everything you need (we did stay in a few nights!) to prepare great meals. There was only one minor problem with the outside light which was fixed very promptly after we reported it (thanks!!). We will definitely go back to Cottage Sonoma...

"Great Vacation Rental"

by Kimbir Tate


My sister and I went to Sonoma and stayed at auberge. This place is amazing. The rooms are comfortable, the kitchen is fully stocked with just about everything you need but the best feature is the patio. The location is also perfect and within walking distance of downtown. I will without hesitation stay at auberge on my next trip to Sonoma.

"Florida and Maine travelers"

by Elizabeth A. McCann


We loved the cottage. The location is perfect. WE enjoyed eating in the sun-drenched kitchen and sitting on the beautiful patio. Everything needed is there. Thank you for a great vacation.

"Great Cottage!"

by Robin Higgins


Short walk from great shops and restaurants, beautiful yard, super comfy beds. I would love this kitchen for my own! Easy access to wineries and shopping. Byron was very helpful with suggestions and recommendations. I have already recommended Cottage Sonoma to friends who are planning trips to wine country!

"The perfect home away from home a few steps from the Town Square"

by Mary E Turnbull


We just stayed at Cottage Sonoma for four days with close friends. Sonoma Town Square offers such a range of things to do and see - from galleries and gift shops to wine, cheese, olive oil and chocolate tasting to great cafes and restaurants to historic sites. It was so good to be able to pursue joint and separate interests - all just a block away from this gorgeous little cottage!

Byron, the manager, is great to deal with - very prompt to respond to questions, and also sending follow up emails just before our arrival (just in case we'd forgotten to print off the entry code and other important information). He also provided a wine tasting card for each couple which offered free tastings at places which otherwise charge a fee. Another lovely welcoming touch was fresh yellow and white roses (picked from the very pretty cottage garden) on the table.

There is a 7-11 store on the corner, and a great Whole Foods store within an easy stroll too. After being on a road trip for almost a month it was a delight to be able to cook our own food from delicious local produce, and to chill out with plenty of good Sonoma wine - the bright kitchen and dining area flows out onto a sunny deck complete with excellent barbeque and there is a hot tub in the pretty, private back yard. We have never stayed in a holiday rental with such great kitchen equipment as well as a pantry stocked with every cooking basic - including dried herbs and spices, oils, vinegars, sugar, flour, pasta etc.

Included in this really attractive and practical living space is a work desk complete with a desktop computer - there is also free wi-fi access if you bring your own laptop. On the shelves above the computer are a lot of very good books - both in terms of local information, but also an informal book exchange for keen readers (such as ourselves).

The two bedrooms are small but very comfortable, the master bedroom has an ensuite as well as French doors to the back deck. Both bedrooms have good window coverings (for late sleepers) and they are quiet and peaceful (no traffic noise).

You enter from the front porch to a really comfy living room equipped with TV and DVD - and there's a single pullout bed there if needed.

There is also a great laundry room with huge washer/dryer, ironing board etc.

"Cottage Sonoma,424"

by Dr. Michael Gerberi


It was amazing. The weather was wonderful. We traveled to the wineries in Sonoma and Napa, took the Wine train for the lunch trip, and drove all over in the area to enjoy as much as we could take in while we were there. Everyone was very friendly and accomidating. Would recommend this to anyone and have. Thank you for a wonderful week in Sonoma.


by Roberta Rossi


We were more than happy with the accommodations and will no doubt go again. We've already recommended the cottage to a daughter and a niece. Great location, beautiful yards with lots of flowers, well maintained, couldn't have been better

"Excellent stay"

by Wade Shanley


While not inexpensive, you get what you pay for. This is a top notch place, extremley close to downtown Sonoma...litterally steps away from shopping an restaurants. If you can splurge a little I gaurantee you won't be dissapointed in this location. Be sure that dowtown Sonoma is at least a few days worth of your trip to make the money invested here worth while. It was incredibly convenient to just walk out the door and have restaurants, wineries, wine bars etc just steps away. Rooms are very spacious and beds are extremley comfy...but on the soft side for those who prefer firm. The outdoor covered deck is could have your own little party out's almost as large as the whole appartment. Great place for relaxing with friends and a few botttles of wine after a long day of touring wine country.

"wonderful experience"

by Mary Murray


Location is fabulous for enjoying a stroll downtown. Close to everything yet peaceful. Home was immaculate and will stay again if in the area.

"Charming cottage – just steps away from Sonoma Square"

by Elizabeth Lacy


We just returned from a weekend in Sonoma and our first stay at Cottage Sonoma. What a lovely place! We were very comfortable and took advantage of the very short walk to Sonoma Square. The cottage was accurately described on the web-site and we were not disappointed! We had dinner at Girl in the Fig one night (delicious), which was litterally one block away and pizza from Mary's Pizza Shack another night (try the pesto breadsticks - they are wonderful)! We definitely plan on making this an annual tradition and plan on staying at the cottage next year (and the year after, etc)!

"A wonderful stay"

by Mary Grundy


We stayed at Cottage Sonoma for Labor Day weekend. It was our first getaway with our baby daughter who is 3 months old. The house is lovely. We just loved how bright and sunny it is. The patio was nice in the evenings. We would hang out there after our daughter went to bed. The kitchen is fully equipped and very clean. And we LOVED that the cottage is around the corner from the square. We were able to stroller over there every day and enjoy the shops, restaurants and fabulous park. I had no idea Sonoma was so baby/kid friendly! I would absolutely stay at Cottage Sonoma again. The house is charming, very clean, and comfortable. Can't recommend it enough!

"Our four day stay at Cott…"

by JoAnn Clay


Our four day stay at Cottage Sonoma in March of 2010 was so enjoyable. The house is well equipped and very comfortable. The location is perfect -walking distance to restaurants, markets, and shopping. I would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting wine country for a few days.

"We stayed in Cottage Sono…"

by Rick A


We stayed in Cottage Sonoma with another couple and found it to be an incredible accommodation to see Sonoma and Napa. The Cottage was very quaint, extremely clean, very well decorated and was located one block from downtown Sonoma. Cottage Sonoma was like living at home while on vacation. It was equipped with everything including a hot tub which we unfortunately did not get to use because of time constraints. The Cottage is perfect for two couples. Both bedrooms and bathrooms were good sized and very comfortable. The beds were extremely comfortable. Everything looked new and worked...sometimes you're not sure what you're getting when you see photos online, but this Cottage was all we hoped it would be and more. We would highly recommend this to anyone not wanting to stay in a traditional hotel, but also wanting something really nice. Byron, the owner, was also very helpful before and during our stay. We would definitely book it again!
