Upper master has private 13' balcony with mountain, valley, and city-light views, and extra indoor sitting area with views. House has 2 complete large master suites (bring your parents or best friends!). There are 2 smaller bedrooms downstairs, each w/queen bed and private exit to balcony and pool/spa area, shared bath with deep whirlpool tub/shower, and a smaller Victorian suite upstairs, w/queen bed, gas fireplace, and private glass-tiled bath (Victorian slipper tub w/shower).

CHAMPAGNE AND CHOCOLATES: We welcome you with champagne, roses, & chocolates, or help yourself at the Victorian bar in the parlor right outside your room. HEATED POOL: Go down for a relaxing swim or a hot spa at our jungle-style pool (heated except in winter or rainy days), or take a glass of wine and sit among the morning glories in our formal, fragrant rose and perennial gardens, and watch as dozens of hummingbirds zip right over your head. We call our garden 'the Aviary.' Watch the hawks soar on the updrafts over the Open Space wooded canyon. Goldfinches, doves, and dozens of other wild birds crowd the feeders. Listen carefully, and you'll get to see one of the many wild quail families that live on our property. At night, a chorus goes up from the tiny tree-frogs that populate the pond. There are places to sit and take it all in everywhere. Our gardens are user-friendly!

A house truly made for outdoor living. Grill a succulent feast on our lovely 'Romeo and Juliet' style arched, covered upper loggia, right off the kitchen; sit around it's outdoor gas fireplace and play your guitar (acoustic only, please, no outdoor amplified music). So many balconies to choose from, all with gorgeous views! Each downstairs bedroom has it's own private exit to one of the balconies and the gardens, pool, and hot tub below. We welcome quiet groups of family and friends; NO parties; sorry, NO weddings. House has many ipod docks and NEW, free unlimited NETFLIX movie and PANDORA music streaming! Or deal out the hands for a long night of poker and fun at our new Victorian poker table w/poker set, down in the Victorian bar room.

DOWN BEDDING: All of our beds now have down bedding and pillows (cotton and alternatives for summer), and comfy feather beds or memory foam toppers (optional). We now have one queen sofa bed for extra children or adults, with high-end, truly comfortable foam mattress, in the downstairs game room. Our beds are newer, high quality and very comfortable; we only use high thread count luxury linens, for a luxurious night's sleep. Two fluffy robes provided in every closet. There are also 3 large jetted tubs in the house, in addition to the Victorian slipper soaking tub.

NEW: Green Mountain Smoker/Grill for that perfect smoked turkey, brisket, pulled pork, or whole salmon! Small home gym w/rower, runner, and Chuck Norris slider, etc. in smaller carpeted garage. Free Netflix and Pandora. KARAOKE MACHINE has BLUETOOTH!

Luxurious Outdoor Living: Visit one of our areas many fine gourmet restaurants, or dine-in by cooking in our gorgeous chef's kitchen, with granite island and stools. The kitchen is stocked with basics. There is both a formal dining room and a kitchen nook with fabulous Open Space views of the valley below. There is a large living area next to the kitchen with comfy seating, a large flat screen T.V. in living area and one in each bedroom, ipod docks, telescope, and gas fireplace. A lovely covered, arched veranda with outdoor fireplace, propane grill, lots of seating, and breakfast bistro set is perfect for sipping wine and watching the view (wild hawks, birds, deer and other wildlife are plentiful). There are 3 other balconies in back, including a majestic inlaid travertine round one with fountain, and a private one w/bistro set and view off the upper master bedroom. There is a large patio area around the pool, with many loungers and lots of other seating, and 2 different gazebos in the lawn and rose gardens. This house is perfect for enjoying outdoor living.

Close to everything!: Drive an hour to our beautiful Sonoma County wild beaches and cliffed coves, walk in giant redwoods, kayak or canoe on the Russian River, or fish at Lake Sonoma. Hundreds of gorgeous wineries and tasting rooms in every direction. Tour the beautiful gardens and historical tasting rooms of Korbel Champagne Cellars. Visit the quaint historical towns of Calistoga or St. Helena, or hike in our beautiful state parks. For a unique side-trip, visit Safari-West African Wildlife Park, just minutes away, where you ride in jeeps past free-roaming animals, with no crowds. Visit the historical squares of Sonoma and Healdsburg for many choices in first-class dining and shopping. We are happy to act as concierge for you, and make reservations, arrangements, or recommendations for whatever you need, from a private chef to a masseuse, to a wine concierge who will come right to the house for a private tasting. We even have a wonderful professional photographer (voted Best in Petaluma) who will come preserve your memories! Come enjoy the luxury!

NEW: Want a special dinner cooked for you at home? Try one of our fabulous recommended private chefs, who will create an incredible 5 course meal including delectable homemade desserts, while you enjoy hanging out and relaxing with friends, at a very reasonable price. They do all the shopping, serving, and cleaning up, too!

PRIVATE WINE TASTINGS: We have two to offer. First, sample some of the richest reds you've ever had (some whites) with winemaker Bill Wertzberger of (check out Bill's website!), who will do private tastings only for our guests! You will meet Bill at the wine cellar out in the lush Dry Creek Valley, one of the most beautiful wine valleys around. OR, if you prefer, Sabrina Krauss, wine concierge ( will come to you at the villa, serving up an eclectic collection of boutique winery reds and some whites. Why stress about driving? Sabrina has served me all of the best wines I've ever had; she really knows her stuff. She can also get you anything you find at other wineries, and ship it to you for less than most wineries (do NOT ship wine yourself - you'll pay a premium!). Let us set you up with an appointment for Bill or Sabrina, or both!

MASSAGE: Let us help you arrange a relaxing massage right at the house, about $70 for 75 minutes. Liza gets high marks from our guests who have hired her.

WINE COUNTRY DRIVER: Donna of Donna's Wine Country Chauffer has been ferrying our guests for many years, for a very reasonable hourly rate. Donna knows all the wine roads and YOU set the itinerary, going wherever you want, for however long you want. Just ask us for her number.

And how about photos to remember your special time with family or friends? We have one available, voted Best in Sonoma County. Just ask.

Hi, we're your hosts, Maureen and Kevin. We have lived in Santa Rosa for 25 years and 30 years. We know you'll fall in love with the natural beauty of our area, as we have: the soaring redwoods, the wild, rocky coast, and the miles and miles of green, rolling, oak-studded hills and vineyards. We enjoy meeting people from all over the United States and the world, and doing everything we can to make sure that their vacation in wine country is the best ever, from buying a birthday cake to making reservations at the best restaurants, to arranging drivers, chefs, and masseuses.

Maureen and Kevin purchased this villa in 2007

We did not buy it, we built it, not as a vacation rental, but as our family home, while our daughter was in high school. We planned out every artistic detail of our villa ourselves; it is truly a house like none other. Kevin and I still live in and enjoy our beautiful property and gardens, in our caretaker's studio (no shared walls), to ensure our guests have help at their fingertips. We are there nights only; your privacy greatly respected.

We are located in the hills above Santa Rosa, in the heart of Sonoma County, 10 min. from downtown Santa Rosa and just a short drive to hundreds of fine wineries and about 45 min. from San Francisco and the beautiful Sonoma Coast. The quaint towns of Healdsburg, Calistoga, and Sonoma are nearby, with their many fine restaurants, art galleries, and pampering spas. We are ten min. south of the Dry Creek Valley on Hwy 101, 20 min. from Calistoga (Napa), and 10 min. north of the Sonoma Valley. Or just relax at the villa and enjoy our English-style 'hummingbird' gardens from the many benches and gazebos around, with literally hundreds of birds zipping around the flowers and flowering trees. You may even see a wild hawk soaring above the open space valley we back up to. At night there are city lights, and by day there are views, views, views!

Other Activities: Walk in the Redwoods along the Russian River (or canoe through them!), go wine tasting in the gorgeous Dry Creek, Alexander, Sonoma or Napa Valleys, or take a jeep tour through Safari West, among African animals, sipping wines or enjoying a ranch style feast afterwards. Taste champagne at Korbel Champagne Cellars on your way out to our beautiful wild coast, then circle back south for seafood in Bodega Bay, and check out the little antique and treasure shops in the towns of Bodega and Sebastopol.

Golf: We have several golf courses nearby. There is the Fountaingrove Country Club, the public Bennet Valley Golf Course, and the most beautiful one of them all (though only 9 holes): Northridge, out under the Redwoods on Hwy 116, about 20 min. away, on the road to the coast. Golf beneath the giants.

Ski: We are three hours by car from Tahoe, with it's many ski lifts, and 5 hours from Yosemite (for summer sightseeing). If you don't feel like driving that far, our beaches are only 35-40 min. away and beautiful any time of year! (Too cold to swim, though, bring a picnic or a fishing rod!)
