About owner/property manager
I'm a fun loving, free-spirited person. After my two children left home I decided to make my home available for full time vacation rentals. I love meeting the many unique, fun and creative people I have hosted. I recently returned from travels to Vietnam and Cambodia all through vacation rentals; I am grateful to be a part of a community who love the idea of staying in someone’s home vs a hotel. I enjoy cooking (and do regular pop-up dinners in Sonoma, serving crepes, and some favorite vietnamese dishes, BanhMi and Pho), socialize with friends, listen to music, and dancing! I am an entrepreneur, owning several businesses in the food industry. Before I started my first business -over 25 years ago- I researched opening a Bed and Breakfast, so hosting travelers is like fulfilling the 4th business I never started! I look forward to meeting you~ I also host on Airbnb since 2011, and have many reviews on listing https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/185577. I look forward to meeting you~
owner/property manager purchased this House in 2006
Why owner/property manager chose Sonoma
The reason I love this property/area is because it's rich in history, and it is is removed from the touristy town square, yet a close drive or bike ride away. This neighborhood is adorned with sweet little cottages, small winding streets with plenty of adorable yards and gardens to admire. It's a very organic area, with beautiful oaks and natural luscious beauty that you don't find in the more manicured areas of the square. It's got character and real charm, and feels hidden way even though the action of the town is minutes away.
What makes this House unique
There is another unit on the property I also rent out. It's perfect if you have a larger group to rent it also :) Here is the link: https://www.vrbo.com/1253443?unitId=1804403 When I was looking for a home to buy, this home found me, literally! It had been on the market, yet my realtors didn't show it to me. One day I decided to go out on my own and I drove by it and saw the adorable porch, the white house and white picket fence and I fell in love. The rest is history. Many people have driven past my home and told me it is their favorite property in the area; The cute porch is definitely an attraction! So fun to just sit and relax and enjoy the cute yard. I am also a big fan out outdoor sleeping, and that is why I have a comfortable couch on each porch!

Good communicator and very clean
Close to everything!
Small, quaint but good home for the 5 of us. Easy drive to downtown and lots of great wineries. It was hot one day and into the evening with no a/c but they have fans to help cool the home down and for sleeping it was about 59 degrees by 11pm.
Cute and Quaint In Sonoma
Loved our time here! Cute and Quaint property with a lovely garden area. Wish we would have known another rental unit was available on the same property, but maybe I missed it in the listing
Great location close to downtown Sonoma. Lorene was a wonderful hostess! It was very easy to communicate with her and she was always quick to respond to any questions. House was clean and very lovely!
The house was amazing and the owner, Lorene, was so welcoming.
There were 4 of us staying in the house and it was more than adequate with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. There are wonderful knickknacks throughout the house, eye catching pictures and all in all - a real delight.
You notice something different depending on where you sit. There is a sheltered front porch with a picturesque front yard and a sheltered back deck with comfy sofas and chairs. And if that isn't enough, the back yard is quite large with a BBQ and large seating/dining area. We definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to visit the area. A memorable visit.
Wonderful Visit to the Shrangri-la
This is a wonderful, inviting home. Seems the perfect setting for a wine country visit. Lorene was a wonderful host and checked in throughout our stay to ensure everything was going well. I was considering a 4 rating as we were there during the hottest days (historically) of summer and the home does not have AC. (Many of the homes in the Napa and entire Bay area don't have central air. These luxuries have not been necessary in past years). Lorene graciously provided a mobile air unit that helped, but it was tough against 110+ degree temperatures and as a result of her hospitality I will go with a full 5-star rating of our stay. We would absolutely book this property again.
