We stayed for our anniversary and Sonoma Bungalows was THE perfect place for us. The room was spotless and the owners spared no expense in creating an incredibly luxurious environment. From the ambiance of the fireplace wall to the surround sound music to the heated bathroom floors and plush comfortable bed, this place can’t be beat. Bunky, the manager, even came to give us a personal welcome and show us around despite our arriving later in the evening our first night. There’s a wonderful firepit, free rental bikes and tons of delicious food and a grocery store all completely walkable. Absolutely wonderful team/owners. This is the kind of small business we will happily support time and again. The quality of small business with the convenience and pricing of a chain—Sonoma Bungalows simply can’t be beat! We wished we could purchase our unit and stay indefinitely!

My wife and I recently enjoyed a trip to Sonoma and the broader Wine Country region of California over Christmas 2021. After doing a quick search, I came across a website for the Sonoma Bungalows. We had actually already booked another house through AirBnB, but after seeing pictures of the Sonoma Bungalows, we cancelled our existing reservation and rebooked Bungalow 5. The owners, Valerie and Mike were extremely easy to work with, answered all questions, and even proactively offered restaurant and hiking suggestions in both San Francisco and Sonoma. Based on these recommendations, we enjoyed a wonderful lunch in Sausalito and a memorable hike in Muir Woods prior to making the trip from San Francisco to Sonoma. Valerie really went out of her way to make recommendations based on both my wife and my interests. I could tell Valerie truly was invested that we enjoyed our time in California.

Once we arrived to the Sonoma Bungalows, we could immediately tell we made the right decision staying here. Mike and Valerie have done an outstanding job designing and furnishing the bungalows to make you feel at home. When we entered our bungalow, we were greeted with festive holiday music playing through the Sonos sound system (we thoroughly enjoyed and took advantage of this feature). Our bungalow had every comfort of home, including an extremely comfortable king size bed, electric fireplace, gorgeous bathroom (with heated floors), and a full kitchen. A bottle of wine and chocolates were waiting for us as well, which just added to a warm welcome.

The location of the Sonoma Bungalows couldn’t have been better. You are right next to the Sonoma Square, which makes walking to all of the fabulous boutique shops and restaurants so easy. If you want an awesome dinner, check out Valley Bottle Shop. We stumbled upon this place our first evening and had an awesome meal and great wines. It was a treat not having to worry about driving and parking when we could just walk from our bungalow over to the square.

In summation, the Sonoma Bungalows exceeded our expectations. We are so happy we found this wonderful place to stay, and can’t recommend them enough! Both my wife and I are avid travelers, and stay at higher end hotels, such as the Ritz-Carlton, Four Seasons and St. Regis properties. The Sonoma Bungalows rivaled all of these hotels, and have earned our business for all future trips to Wine Country (we are already planning another 2022 holiday trip). Don’t miss out on this wonderful property that Mike and Valerie have created. Staying at the Sonoma Bungalows will only further enhance any trip to Sonoma.

We just got back from staying at the Sonoma Bungalows for a week. We stayed in a one bedroom suite (Suite 7) and my sister, brother-in-law and our friend stayed in a 2 bedroom house (Hawker). This place is amazing! We were greeted by Bunky, one of the receptionists. She walked us to our places where a bottle of chilled wine was waiting for us at each location and gave us great restaurant recommendations, local info., etc.. Each bungalow was gorgeously decorated and spotlessly clean. The beds were SO comfortable. There are two fire pits outside to drink wine by and relax. They even provide firepit blankets in each unit! They have thought of everything. If you need anything whatsoever, there is a receptionist on site each day to answer any question you may have. Could not recommend this place any more highly. We are planning our trip for next year already. Can't wait!

Sonoma Bungalows is the cutest, little boutique hotel located in the heart of Sonoma town. This hotel is a little different to a normal hotel as it is made up of sweet, little bungalows / apartments to make your stay feel more at home. There are no hallways to walk through (def appreciated in covid times). The bungalows are super luxurious inside and the large bathrooms have heated floors. Yes please! We stayed in Dixon and it was perfect. There are 2 bedrooms and each of the bedrooms is the same size (no need to flip a coin on who gets which room lol). Brilliant! Location is prime and within walking distance to all the best places to visit in Sonoma. The park is right around the corner. Free parking & bikes to explore are always a plus! Loved our stay! Would def return!

First impressions can never be reestablished, when entering the property at Sonoma Bungalows it is very obvious that every thought went into creating the perfect retreat. My wife and I were very impressed with the excellent design of the property and the perfectly laid out bungalows. The parking is mere steps from your assigned bungalow; when we were beginning to unpack, Bunkie (sp?) was quick to greet us outside of the guest services building and give us a quick overview and some tips and recommendations about the area. When we entered our room, our jaws dropped. This is not just another place to stay while on vacation, it was a home away from home. A great place to return to after each day, relax with the in-room sound system, cozy see-through fireplace, full kitchen for when we didn’t feel like going out to dinner. Absolutely everything you could need was in the room and it was meticulously clean. There was a chilled bottle of wine, the fireplace was on, and relaxing music was playing through the built-in speakers; back to my comment on first impressions, this is how you do it. The location of the property is perfect with the Sonoma Square and dozens of restaurants and stores about a block away, and available as your heart desires. Most wineries in the valley are within 30 minutes or less in the case of each we traveled to during this trip. When we travel back to Sonoma this will be the only place we stay, and we will recommend this property to everyone we meet.

Sonoma Bungalows will be the only place we stay when we visit the Sonoma region from now on. Mike was absolutely wonderful and he made us feel so special. He was there to greet us when we first arrived and give us a quick tour of the grounds. Our suite was absolutely gorgeous. A perfect place if you want seclusion. We arrived with music playing in our bungalow, the fireplace on, and A bottle of wine and chocolates waiting for us. Getting a little colder in November in Sonoma, I greatly appreciated the heated floor in the bathroom. Everything was brand new, every single dish and cup had no dust on it. They did a wonderful job cleaning the place before we arrived. We toured wine country most of the day so at night it was so nice to cozy up next to the fire inside our room and we enjoyed the bonfires right outside of our bungalow. The price was so worth the experience. Easy to find parking, no stairs to worry about and walking distance to all of our favorite restaurants. It’s right around the corner from the girl on the fig, El Dorado restaurant, and right across the street from Sonoma Grille. The lady at the front desk even called the girl and the fig to surprise us with complementary champagne and a beautiful cheese platter for dinner on our last night in Sonoma to celebrate our engagement!!. I cannot believe we lucked out to find this beautiful property. If you want a guaranteed beautiful stay with a worry free mindset then you need to stay here. Thank you so much for that wonderful experience. We will be only staying here from here on.

Excellent in every way. It’s very hard to tell from the Internet how much is hype and how much is real. This place Fully lived up to everything we ever heard about it.

Here are some highlights that you may not of seen. The kitchen is fully stocked (except groceries) and the frying pan color matches the decor.

There’s a Whole Foods within easy stroll distance about a minute.

You can take out some bicycles for a bike ride – they are included

There’s a grill.

Check-in and checkout are extremely easy.

You can cast from your phone to the TV for stuff like Netflix.

You can get an in room massage

A luxury alternative to the usual wine country hotel or B & B. You can tell the property is a labor of love from the reclaimed wood floors to the marble bathrooms and gourmet kitchen. Anything you want? It is there. If not just ask. It is a nice walk to the town square and nearby restaurants. The care and attention to detail is amazing. We will be back.

One of the best hotels we have stayed in. Gorgeous location, and it only gets more breathtaking when you walk in.
Excellent hotel with great location steps from the Sonoma Plaza, where we took advantage of the downtown location to walk to dinner, check out a couple galleries, and have drinks. Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed by the very friendly Bunky. She just came out of our Bungalow where she turned the chill music and the fireplace on to make sure that we are as relaxed as can be. That was when we knew that our vacation was going to be a promising one.
Bungalow 8 was extremely clean & comfortable. It had a large bedroom, large bathroom with heated floors, great living room and a fully stocked kitchen that had all the comforts of home.
For our first dinner, Bunky helped us secure a reservation at the Girl & the Fig restaurant. The food was delicious and the wine was superb. We discovered the best tasting Syrah ever under the restaurant label. Thank you Bunky for a beautiful meal.
Valerie was kind enough to recommend wineries and a place for lunch for the next day. She made reservations for several wineries. she also made a reservation for dinner at the Salt and Stone restaurant nestled among the vineyards. The food was fantastic. Thank you Valerie.
We had a wonderful experience at the Sonoma Bungalows. Every staff member we encountered was delightful and eager to help.
I Would definitely recommend this hotel to everybody. We will certainly be back soon.

Very convenient location - we walked to all the restaurants. Beautiful landscaping and outdoor social space with plenty of room to "distance." The room was very stylish with lots of nice perks like thin towels, a complimentary bottle of wine, a fan and air conditioning and several little patios off of the room itself.
Will definitely return and recommend to others.
