OAK LEAF RETREAT - 5 ACRES, SPA & VINEYARDS! PEACEFUL.

Healdsburg House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Nestled on 5+ acres at the end of a secluded country lane and shaded by a canopy of majestic oaks, Oak Leaf Retreat is a stunning, 3300 sq. ft., 2-story, luxury 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath custom home with a wrap around porch, abundant spectacular features, and gorgeous amenities. This elegant country Retreat offers the best of the two worlds of country and town, where you can enjoy the peace and serenity of a pastoral and vineyard setting that is only a 10 minute drive to the town square of charming and historic Healdsburg, the ‘crown jewel’ of Sonoma County’s Wine Country.

Oak Leaf Retreat is located next to Nicole's Vineyard of J Winery and is within a 20 minute drive of over 100 wineries in the Dry Creek Valley, Alexander Valley and Russian River Valley appellations. Naturally, there are dozens of fine restaurants within 15 minutes of Oak Leaf Retreat.

This special home in the ‘Tuscany’ of Northern California, has a fabulous gourmet kitchen, the heart of this very special retreat. The main level entry hall leads you to the expansive well-equipped kitchen, on your left, which opens to the dining and living areas, all with high ceilings, custom lighting, abundant windows and doors opening to the 3-sided porch and back patio, and the well designed flowing floor plan makes for nearly effortless transitions from room to room. With everything your ‘chef’ will want or need, this kitchen is truly heavenly and includes abundant custom lighting, marvelous maple cabinets, a large island with a professional Fisher&Paykal 5-burner gas cook top and prep sink, new appliances including a built-in oven, stainless steel Maytag fridge-over-freezer, dishwasher, Magic Chef microwave, and a large stainless steel sink

The lovely dining area conveniently awaits service of your culinary delights, just adjacent to the kitchen, with a rustic dining table, 6 luxurious leather high backed chairs and windows all around to let the splendor of nature ‘join’ you as you enjoy sipping, supping, and good conversation. From the kitchen/dining area, you can ‘flow’ into the large living and entertaining room with plenty of comfy seating for all including a large sectional sofa, 2 leather chairs, and an ottoman. The spacious living room’s audio/visual entertainment is provided by a Phillip’s 30” widescreen HD TV.

The Retreat’s main level is completed with 2 lovely bedrooms with full baths, a guest bathroom and a convenient laundry room. Situated to the left and right of the entry, the bedroom suites are on opposite sides allowing for maximum privacy. The bedroom suite on the left has a comfy queen bed, a full glass door to the side porch, and a private en-suite bath is well-appointed with a shower over tub and pedestal sink. You can use the available, trusty iMac computer. Also, WiFi delivers high-speed internet connection that reaches throughout the Retreat and outdoors more than 200 feet.

On the right front side of the home, ‘lives’ the second bedroom suite also with queen bed, peaceful décor, ceiling to floor silk drapes for the window, and full glass door, leading to the back deck and spa. There is also a wall-mounted 32' flat screen TV. A well appointed second en-suite bathroom features a huge walk-in, fully tiled shower with 2 showering stations with wands and a teak ‘in shower’ bench. Additionally, there is a private water closet, vanity, small dresser, and mirrored wall which completes this roomy and efficient ‘getting ready’ station. Finally, on the main level you'll find an additional half bath and an laundry with large washer and dryer, sink, wine fridge, and another full glass door to the side porch.

But wait! Climb the staircase to the upper level of this very special home to the expansive 1400+ sq. ft. multi-use Great Room suite. A private family retreat unto itself, this beautiful space creates a relaxing environment full of amenities and opportunities for play, watching TV or a movie, or a rejuvenating, restful sleep. Enter the upstairs expansive living entertainment area with sofa and loveseat and a 52” Panasonic HD widescreen TV with DVD player and an iHome Speaker/Charger System for you iPad, iPhone or iPod.

This very special haven’s alcoves include a bedroom ensemble with king bed and armoire, a queen bed, two single beds, a play area with game table & dart board, a desk/work station, and a wet bar with a small fridge. Spa inspired, the suite's bathroom is grand, and features a private bath and shower room that includes a jetted Jacuzzi soaking tub with wand and a large free standing shower with wand. Also, adjoining is a private water closet, and a private vanity with mirrored wall.

Considering the splendor of it all and spectacular and abundant amenities and features of this magnificent Retreat, you may never want to leave and may have to be ‘pried’ out to enjoy the beauty of Mother Nature and the many adventures to be enjoyed in Healdsburg, Windsor and the surrounding areas. The outdoor features of the Retreat include a 3-sided wrap-around porch, back deck with 2 tables and chairs for 10, another round table with umbrella and 4 chairs, two lounge chairs, a new high-end 7-person Belize 1500 hydrotherapy spa, a new gas grill for your BBQing pleasure, the shaded canopy of 100 year old oaks, over an acre of lawn, and the glorious sunsets over Nicole’s vineyard. During the early morning hours of the ballooning season, you may also enjoy balloons overhead and, if you listen carefully, you'll hear distant conversations from above.

My wife and I built our home in late 2003. After living in our dream home for 6 years we decided to return to the East Bay to be near (our two daughters and) our four granddaughters, all under the age of 5. We did not want to sell our home so we decided to provide our home as a vacation rental. This way we can return whenever the home is not occupied and show our granddaughters their goat and sheep friends on the neighboring property and help them indentify the birds (nearly 50 different birds appear throughout the year).

We intend to constantly upgrade our home with the amenities that make for a relaxing and memorable retreat or vacation. We encourage feedback from our guests so we can improve the 'wine country' experience for future guests.

Thank you for considering our home for your 'retreat.'

Great, luxurious & spacious house for a group of friends
  • 5 of 5
I was a little concerned that the prior reviews and photos were too good to be true, but they are in fact perfectly representative of this wonderful wine country retreat. The house is actually bigger and more spacious than the photos suggest, making it an ideal place for a group of friends. I was there last weekend with 7 girlfriends and everyone kept raving about the house - it's amazing vineyard views, the beautiful kitchen perfect for foodies, the luxurious bathrooms, the convenient access to Healdsburg, all the outdoor seating, even the plush carpet. Plus, it was super easy working with the owners. They were communicative and helpful and friendly and everything was just seamless. A real gem.

Magical Stay at Oak Leaf

  • 5 of 5
I can't stop thinking about all of the memories we had during our stay at Oak Leaf Retreat. From the incredible days of wine tasting at renowned wineries within minutes from the house, to the lunches in the ultra charming (yet chic) downtown Healdsburg, to the warm breeze gently blowing through the oak trees on the wrap around deck as we dined al fresco during the evenings, to the relaxing ending to our days in the crystal clean spa. Every part of our stay was perfection. The home is well equipped with everything you need for a comfortable experience; including a fully stocked 'cook's kitchen', extra blankets/linens, hairdryers, toiletries, and the list goes on. Whether you are looking for a place to just gather with friends and family to reunite, cook, eat, play games and enjoy the breathtaking view of the vineyard on a private 5 acre property, or a weekend 'out and about' with friends exploring everything that wine country has to offer, Oak Leaf Retreat is the place to stay. The home owners are extremely knowledgeable about the area and very easy to work with. When you are staying at Oak Leaf Retreat, you will never want to leave. It's definitely a place we will be coming back to over and over again.

Great place for family and small kids

  • 5 of 5
We shared a long weekend at this home with my relatives and their small son - and we brought our baby and preschooler. The kids could not get enough of running around the expansive yard. And they loved visiting the goats down the lane. We were treated to an amazing sight in the early mornings - a sky filled with hot air balloons. We all loved watching them float right above the house.
The location is great - 5 mins. to Healdsburg for dinner, shopping, or wine tasting and not too far from Guernville and the Armstrong Redwood Preserve, as well as several Russian River beaches.
The home is easy to be in with small children - good layout and lots of space for them to run around. We had a 1,2, and 3 year old in our group and we didn't have to be right on top of them in the way we might have in a hotel or another home. I also appreciated that Kay and Andrew have some nice kid-friendly plates, cups, and other items - high chair, pack 'n play/crib.
We held a smal gathering of about 20 friends and everyone was impressed with this spot. Friends kept asking how I found the house and as the sun set while we watched our kids chase bubbles on the lawn, adults lounging on the back steps with glasses of wine, someone said, 'We could be in Provence.' We could have! But it wouldn't have been as easy or relaxing, I bet.
We'll be back!

Owner's Response: Dear Holly,

Thank you for the wonderful review. So glad you were visiting during the annual Hot Air Balloon show. Every year it takes place over our property and it's spectacular. Also, our friends compare Oak Leaf and environs to Provence as well as Tuscany. Do come back!

Perfect weekend house

  • 5 of 5
I stayed with my husband and some friends for three nights while we visited the area for Passport to Dry Creek Valley. It has become an annual tradition with friends to gather for the weekend and rent a house. This house has been the best! By far most impressive. While the photos on this site are beautiful, we all agreed that the house and the grounds were even more beautiful in person. The house is spacious, the kitchen is huge and well stocked, the beds and furniture is very comfortable, and everything was in great condition. The yard is amazing. It's large, with plenty of cutely placed chairs. My dog loved lounging in the grass. The jacuzzi was a perfect evening activity. The wraparound porch was the perfect setting for a cup of coffee. The house is private and is quiet, but just a few minutes drive to grocery stores and the fwy. Kae was a great correspondent, she always answered my emails and addressed my questions promptly. Overall, a wonderful experience and we would stay again in a heartbeat.

Owner's Response: It is wonderful to read your comments. Since we built our home in 2003 and lived in it for nearly 7 years, we enjoy it immensely that our guests experience Oak Leaf the same way we did. Do return...thank you.

Beautiful and Welcoming Wine Country Retreat!

  • 5 of 5
Our group of long time girlfriends came up for our annual barrel tasting trip and had a wonderful time. We have stayed in many beautiful wine country homes but there was something very special about this one. We all enjoyed the beauty and serenity of the setting. Thank you for creating such a lovely home! It was by far the most well stocked and well equipped home we have ever rented. We will certainly be back. Thank you!

Wonderful home at a unique location

  • 5 of 5
Spent 3 days at the Oak Leaf Retreat and it was a great time. The owners were quick to communicate and answered all questions we had. The home is well stocked with excellent cutlery and dishes. We cooked in one night and it was perfect! BBQ is in excellent working order, spa was hot and clean, home was spotless and the view of the vineyards was spectacular. Waking up in the morning, grab a cup of coffee and watch the baloon's float peacefully by almost within touch. Location is quiet, peaceful and relaxing...near the freeway and shopping. If I had to complain at all it would be the beds were a bit small (mostly doubles) outside of the master. Other than that, we had a wonderful time...thanks Kae

Owner's Response: Dear Laurence,

Thank you for the special review of our home. We, too, love to sit on the deck in the morning, sip our tea and coffee, and watch the hot air balloons slowly drift by. As you suggest, sometimes the balloons are so low that it's possible to hear conversations among the passengers.

I have one very minor correction: besides our master King bed, we have three Queen sized beds, not double beds.

Best to you,

Kae and Andrew
