Casa Luna Verano is a comfortable, spacious home on an acre of land in a quiet, country neighborhood just ten minutes away from the Sonoma Plaza. There is a beautiful pool and patio area with enormous outdoor daybeds for lounging. It's a perfect base for exploring Sonoma wine country with the Carneros and Kenwood regions within 15 minutes. Note: Pool is solar heated and generally a comfortable swimming temperature from late April through mid October (dependent on sunny weather).
Our comfortable home is located on a quiet country road that alternates between olive groves, vineyards, farm fields and residences. It's a perfect place to relax and enjoy a little sunshine yet it's incredibly convenient to everything that wine country has to offer.
The pool is surrounded by oak trees, lavender, Catalina Cherry Trees, Manzanita and golden raspberries. There's a pool pavilion with an enormous day bed sectional, perfect for relaxing with a glass of wine or reading a book, once you've had enough sun for the day. The back patio is perfect for al fresco dining with a view of golden grasses, hundred year old oak trees and the eastern mountains framing Sonoma Valley.
We wanted to sleep well in our home, and you will too. One bedroom has a Keetsa eco-friendly king size bed with memory foam, the other bedroom a pillowtop queen size sleigh bed. (Note to European guests: these are US mattress sizes, King= 193cm x 203cm; Queen= 152cm x 203cm). Both feature high thread count cotton sheets, feather pillows (foam available on request) and double cell slumbershade blackout shades, to help ensure you have a quiet and dark bedroom as long as you want to sleep.
There is a full kitchen including refrigerator, microwave, electric range and dishwasher; full set of dishes, pots, pans, glasses and barware. You'll usually fine basic pantry items as well (oil, seasonings, etc). If you use a pinch of salt, no need to replace it - but if you bake a cake, please replace what you use from the pantry!
NEW Nov 2016: We take feedback from guests seriously and use it to improve our property. We've installed a brand new high-end dishwasher, new shower valves and refurbished the BBQ grill. A washer and dryer are now available to all guests.
A high BTU propane grill is available on the patio. The formal dining table has seating for 6, though you can squeeze in 8-9 if you bring wood chairs in from the patio. There is high speed Internet, and speakers in the kitchen and dining room with a plug for ipod/ipad/android phone and a flat screen TV in the living room with basic cable and Showtime. See notes about Sonoma's noise ordinance in the "House Rules" section.

We are longtime San Francisco residents who rebuilt our home there from the ground up in 2012. More recently, we fell in love with Sonoma during the many visits we made for wine tasting, hiking, biking, and visiting friends. And now, we're pleased to share our homes in both locations with you, our guests.
Michael is an interior designer focusing on residential remodel projects and has worked with numerous clients to realize their dreams for the home. Kraig works in technology for a San Francisco-based clothing retailer.
In both homes, we strive for furnishings that are elegant yet feel comfortable sharing with friends and family. One of our favorite things to do is to cook for groups of friends and you'll find our Sonoma kitchen outfitted with just about everything from cookware to staples that you'd need in support of a great meal. Although our dog is no longer with us, the Sonoma property is set up perfectly for a dog (or a human) to enjoy lazy days in the grass and sun.
