“A Comfortable, Convenient Home Base for Wine Tasting”
Reviewed January 10, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

people found this review helpful

After travelling from New York, meeting family in San Francisco and then hitting a couple of wineries we were tired and ready to relax at our home away from home. We were very happy with our rental of the Retro Retreat. It was a perfect place for our family of 5 (from age 19 to 55) to spend time together during our 4 day visit to the valley. Everything we could have possibly wanted was available for us - washer & dryer (so we didn't have to bring ten days worth of clothing with us), a well stocked pantry and kitchen, and even a welcome bottle of wine. The price was what first attracted us to this house but you get a lot of "bang for your buck" by staying here. It is convenient to the town of Sonoma and its lovely square. We enjoyed going to the bakery each morning for fresh baked goods and breakfast sandwiches but we certainly could have cooked meals in too if we had wanted to. If we come back to the area, we definitely will stay at Josette and Dave's home again. They were always courteous and prompt in their correspondance which I really appreciated.

6 of us rented this house for a week of wine tasting. We traveled from Wisconsin, so when we walked in the house after a long day of traveling, we were so impressed and happy with our choice. Not only was it clean and spacious, the location was close to downtown and easy to get to anywhere in the area. The house is an excellent choice for anyone who wants relaxation and convienience to the area. We loved it, and would definately rent this house again.

“Well-kept and well-appointed house”
Reviewed August 1, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

My group (parents, sister, and significant others) had a great time at this very practical rental. It met all of our needs. Rooms were clean and comfortable and the kitchen was very well-stocked for simple meals and picnicking. The living room and kitchen get plenty of light looking out through a virtually all-glass wall to the spacious backyard, which has several tables and lots of chairs. The owners were very easy to deal with and provided a lot of helpful information.

“Fun for friend reunion...and great backyard!”
Reviewed March 1, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

Very comfortable for a small group of friends (1 couple+ 3 singles). This house was our jumping off point for visiting Napa and Sonoma, and wasn't really "close" to anything. It is in a residential neighborhood right off of a busy corridor, not really walking distance to much, but it was easy enough to find our way around with a GPS and car. The back yard was great and we even played croquet with the set provided. Overall, a great experience.

Management Response
Feb 28, 2013
Our rental house is 2.3 miles from the Sonoma Plaza. Guests will need a car to visit the Sonoma Plaza, wineries and site see. The closest wineries are Valley of the Moon, Little Family, and BR Cohn, which are 3 miles away. There are over 50 wineries and tasting rooms within 10 miles. There is a ice cream shop, fruit stand, and a small number of restaurants within walking distance (quarter to half mile), such as Hot Box Grill, Mary's Pizza Shack, Big 3 Diner, a few taquerias and Sante Restaurant in the Sonoma Mission Inn. The house is east of the Sonoma Mission Inn, across highway 12. The house is in a quiet neighborhood. You cannot hear the highway noise, which is 0.2 miles away.

“Delightful home”
Reviewed January 27, 2013 for a stay in September 2012

A long overdue review...We loved our stay at this clean, well furnished & bright home. Near wineries & restaurants. Dave was very courteous & helpful. We will definitely return! Enjoyed by family members from 2 yrs old to 80. Walkway was a bit challenging for our senior members but doable & the house is well suited for all ages. Delightful retro home & vacation!

My husband, myself and our 18 month son stayed in this rental with our friends and their 20 month old daughter. We had one side of the house and our friends were on the opposite side. The layout of this house was perfect, we all had our own space. The rancher with huge windows made it so we could see our toddlers at all times. We were pleasantly surprised from the moment we walked in at how beautiful, bright and clean the house was. It was fully stocked with everything we needed. It was definitely a home away from home. The owners are extremely professional and helpful. I would highly recommend this rental to everyone, especially with young children. We had a wonderful time.
