Amadora, meaning the gift of love in Italian, is a 3 bedroom 2Â½ bath vintage Sonoma craftsman-style 2200 square foot house, built in 1891.

What Past Guests Are Saying
Sisters birthday getaway
4 sisters and 3 nieces spent the weekend at this vacation rental to celebrate our little sisters birthday. We often go on sisters getaways and this was the best rental we have ever had. It was immaculate, roomy and was stocked with everything we needed and then some. The grounds were beautiful. Places to relax, to rest and look at the fruit trees and flowers. The separate game room was great for those that wanted some alone time or to watch the big flat screen TV. The owner, before we arrived, sent many informative e-mails to let us know what was in the area. We loved it and want to go back.
Great Place to Stay for any Small Group!
Stayed here in early December with wife and two other couples. Perfect setup for us. Cooked and hung out in the house in the morning and when we returned from vineyards. Played til late into the night in the gameroom while enjoying more drinks and spending time together.
Amenities are easy to use and and everything is right there for you. Thanks for a great time!
A little piece of heaven
We had an absolutely wonderful stay at amadora. The home is charming and the gardens a dream. We ate fresh fruit and berries each morning from the garden. What a treat. The neighborhood is quiet and the rooms are comfy and cozy. The house, which has 3 bedrooms is tastefully decorated. The only draw back is there is one main bathroom and a small 1/2 bath in the home so you have to be comfortable with sharing. But there is a guest house/game room with a lovely new bathroom a few steps from the main house. The owner/manager Joe was a delight. He provided us lists of restaraunts we should visit and they were all yummy. Amadora is very private and perfectly located for a nice visit to the wine country.We would love to stay there again. You will not be disappointed.
Amadora is beautiful and historic, plus close to great restauran
Amadora is a late 1800's Craftsman house. It is comfortable, pleasing to the eye, and completely furnished, meaning that there books on the shelves, games in the closet, a full set of matching dishes in the kitchen, and there are no fussy textiles. It isn't your home, because there is free surface space for interesting vases and artwork. There is a separate dining room that seats 6-8 comfortably and was a pleasant setting for a family gathering. Easy wifi and full satellite TV and a billiard table were welcome plusses. It was raining while we were there, and the fireplace was easy and beautiful when lit. The garden was a complex landscape with old trees and perennial color filling in every sq ft., very NorCal, and was an excellent view. There is a separate game room with an additional full bathroom. The second shower turned out to be essential with five adults getting ready for wedding. The house was scrupulously clean, so the cleaning fee is worthwhile. Also, a really comfortable mattress in the master bedroom was a welcome surprise in a rental. Someone thought of everything.

Our experience in Sonoma at amadora House was spectacular. The house is beautiful and the amenities were plentiful. The abundance of fruit and flowers on the property was such a special treat. The gazebo area was a great place to relax and sample the many wines we purchased on our stay. We can't wait to come back and we will definitely stay here again.
A Great Getaway
Four friends and I rented Amadora House for a long week-end. It could not have been more perfect. The house is elegant, yet very inviting and comfortable. The entire yard was a beautiful floral landscape--it was like being in a botanical garden. An orange tree was covered with oranges. Everything we needed was there. The location was great. It's a short walk into town, and it's close to all the wineries. One day we even drove to Sonoma Coastal Park (about an hour and a half through beautiful, green, rolling hills) and did a fabulous hike on the bluffs above the ocean. On top of all that, Joe is incredibly helpful. He gave us a lot of information before we left, and he answered all of our questions. I have rented a lot of properties all over the world, and Amadora House is very close to the top of my list of favorites.
Definitely going back!
We stayed at Amadora for the second time in March.
Our first stay was in August 2009, the first time
we booked a rental home. We were very pleased with
the house – the beds (with multiple pillows) were
comfortable, the kitchen was well stocked for
cooking and dining at home, and there were plenty
of stem glasses for red, white and bubbly wines.
The gardens were spacious and a lot of fun. There
were so many peaches in the trees and they were low
enough to pick without a ladder. We made smoothies
out of them. We also harvested strawberries,
raspberries and tomatoes. On our second stay, the
spacious game room, which was converted from a
detached two car garage, was completed. It came
with a pool table and a large screen TV.
Unfortunately the men in our party, the husbands
and boyfriend, liked it so much they pretty much
commandeered the room. The ladies got the house
and the gardens (lol). We loved lounging around in
the gazebo in the middle of the fruit trees, next
to a new water fountain. The location is great,
the house is located between Sonoma Plaza and all
the wineries on highway 12. We felt like we were
in the country, even though we were in town. It
is a great place to wind down and relax. We will
make our third trip later this year.
