Sonoma Wine Country Get-Away
I am an art and mindfulness teacher, an artist, and independent woman with a great dog! The mother of two grown kids and a native Texan. I now have time and the means to travel, and am curious about most everything! I've lived in Vienna, Hamburg, Boulder, Boston, Austin and now Northern California. I love ceramic sculpture and making visual art. And I live in a beautiful little town, Sonoma, which I hope you enjoy visiting.
Our Home & Location
I have a lovely, light-filled 2-bedroom home which is located centrally in the beautiful town of Sonoma, California. My house is within walking distance to shops and restaurants, banks and markets, just a block from the historic town plaza, and close to many famous wineries, walking trails, and other parts of the Bay Area. My guest bedroom has a double bed and downstairs is a VERY comfortable queen sleeper.
On Friday mornings and summer evenings the plaza has a fantastic Farmers' Market with live music, food, and fresh produce. Everyone comes out to picnic! You will enjoy exploring the area, going wine-tasting, to the beach, San Francisco, Napa, and Berkeley. Or ride my bike on the bike trail next to my home! Sonoma is a highly sought-after, famous tourist destination, so hotels and AirB&B's are very expensive. This is a deal!!
Responsibilities & Pets
I have a beautiful 3-year old Husky, Lakota, who needs a kind, energetic person to hang with while I travel. She is very sweet and loving to all people. While housesitting, you would be responsible for walking/running and feeding Lakota twice a day, which is not hard because there are so many beautiful places to walk in every direction! Please do not bring an animal along, as Lakota does best by herself though she does sometimes play with other local dogs. The two garbage cans go out to the curb once a week.
