MEDITERRANEAN INSPIRED VILLA ON 1+ACRE W/HEATED POOL & HOT TUB

Sonoma Villa Rental Photos and Description

Large Villa with 3+ Bedrooms and 2.5+ Baths in Quiet Agricultural Neighborhood

Casa Caliente was inspired by the farm houses and small villas of Spain and Italy. Located on over one acre of terraced gardens, the property has vegetable and flower gardens, olive and fruit trees, huge California and live Oaks, and a charming seasonal creek.

Take an afternoon swim in the approximately 40-foot solar heated pool, relax in the hot tub under the stars, create great food in the fully equipped kitchen, or lounge on one of the terraces and simply enjoy the best of wine country living. Total privacy and lush landscaping leave no doubt that you are in the world renowned wine country.

Beds include 2 California King bedrooms, 1 Queen bedroom, and luxury Queen convertible sleeping in a semi-private den. (These are not your grandmother's sleeper sofas. These are luxury convertibles with 10 inch thick mattresses and luxury linens.)

La Casa Caliente is located just north and west of Historic Sonoma Square (approximately 4 miles), and just south of the charming town of Glen Ellen (approximately 5 miles). The nearest winery is approximately 0.5 miles from the property. World class restaurants and shopping are also nearby, all of which make the Sonoma Valley so special.

Casa Caliente is a wonderful place to gather with friends or family for that special occasion or holiday.

Casa Caliente is fully licensed by the County of Sonoma to operate as a vacation rental.

Guestbook comments from the owner

First off, let me just tell you, we absolutely loved the rental property. You have truly done a magnificent job. We all raved about our experience and give you credit for a superb house. Between my wife and I, and my parents, we have stayed in dozens of VRBO properties across the country, and have never enjoyed any of the other homes anywhere near as much as your property.



You really have a thoughtfully designed and supplied house, which is superbly decorated / landscaped, and just sits in a league of its own. So, to answer your question, we absolutely loved the house. We have been telling all of our friends in SF about your place, and encouraging them to go up there and stay.

Nicoletos Family Wedding

  • 5 of 5
Our Family stayed at La Casa Caliente for my son's wedding at Viansa Winery which is not far from this home. The home was spacious and clean and accommodated the family comfortably. I appreciated the fact that the home provided nearly everything we needed, i.e. towels, sheets, TP, tissues, trash bags, soaps, etc. It also had irons and various hair dryers! -a life saver since we had to steam one of the bridesmaids dresses!
Weddings can be stressful so we enjoyed the peaceful grounds on this property which are absolutely beautiful. The pool was warm and a treat for all. Be sure to use the hot tub at night when the sky can be seen with no light interference-it was heavenly.
We particularly enjoyed the hummingbirds and butterflies that frequent the flowers. One night upon our arrival we saw deer in the front yard. We picked peaches from the trees, tomatoes and grapes from the vines and herbs for our dinner. The neighbors are nice and some even got to meet the owners mother who was very informative too.
There was not one complaint from the bunch and that has never happened before. Love this place and would return again. Thank you Sean.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you were able to enjoy all of the wonderful aspects of La Casa Caliente. It is a truly special place: the butterflies, hummingbirds, deer, peaches, tomatoes, star gazing in the hot tub . . . the sounds of crickets and frogs at night.

We hope you and your family will come back soon!

Perfect House for a getaway weekend!

  • 5 of 5
I had a group of 12 staying at La Casa Caliente for a bachelorette weekend. Five of us went up Friday afternoon and the rest came up Saturday morning for the remainder of the weekend. The house 10 times better in person than the pictures online. The pictures do not give this home justice. It is spacious, extremely clean and has everything you could possibly need for a weekend away.

The kitchen is stocked with everything from dishes, silverware, cups, cooking utensils, pots, pans, baking dishes, etc. There were enough towels for everyone to use. Washer and dryer were available for use. We used the dryer to dry our towels and swimsuits after using the hot tub. Hot tub was perfection! We did not want to get out. The pool was not heated, although a few of the girls took a quick dip in it anyway. Maybe it wasn't warm enough for the solar heating to heat it? Each bedroom also had its own iron in the closet.

The grounds outside were kept clean. It is about a 5-10 minute drive to Sonoma square. It is really quiet at night. I find that to be quite relaxing.
We went wine tasting Saturday. The house is about 40 minutes from Calistoga, 20 minutes to Napa.

I would definitely rent this house again, but next time I would go when it is summer time so I could just lay out and tan. I would want to stay at the house all day for the entire weekend.

I dealt with Sean to rent the house and he was absolutely delightful. He was very helpful and got back to me quickly with answers to my questions. He mailed my deposit check four days after checking out.

The house was perfect for my large group, we weren't stepping on top of each other, plenty of places to sleep. Beds were comfortable and the couches were cozy too. The couch sleeper mattresses looked like real mattresses. They looked thick and plush.
I feel like we didn't take advantage of all the different common areas in the house. Next time I will be sure to enjoy all the rooms.

10 Year Wedding Anniversary

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed at La Casa Caliente with two other couples to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary. The home was exactly what we expected it to be and then some. The pictures and description on the VRBO don't do it justice. The property was clean and well kept throughout, both inside and out. And very spacious. The location was ideal...we spent one day in Sonoma and one day in Napa. We had a limo service both days and the limo picked us up at the property both days and made the short drive to the wineries. The property was perfect to come back to after a day of wine tasting. Large kitchen and deck with a grill for preparing and enjoying meals. The weather was very hot while we were in the area, so we spent most of our evenings by the pool and eventually in the hot tub as the evening cooled.
We loved everything about this property and could not asked for a better place to spend our anniversary. Sean was great to work with prior to, during and after our trip. We will definitely stay here again when we make our way back to the area.

Gorgeous House

  • 5 of 5
I found Casa Caliente here on VRBO and it seemed like the perfect fit for my bridal shower girls weekend - we were not disappointed! The house is HUGE and so beautiful! It easily slept all 12 of us and did not feel crowded at all.

We spent all day swimming in the lovely pool, and took advantage of the croquet set and played several rounds on the lawn. We also went wine tasting at Ravens Wood winery and it was a really quick trip to get there. Very easy to get to down town Sonoma, though not what I would consider walking distance. But a very quick and easy drive.

Really we just loved hanging out at the house, it is fully stocked, has AC, and during the 90 degree temps that weekend the pool was a life saver, we didn't want to get out! The hot tub was also perfect at night time.

In addition there is a beautiful garden with fresh fruit, veggies, and herbs for those who like to cook. The kitchen is perfect for making large meals and serving big groups. All the ladies were so impressed, and my relatives who came by on Saturday loved the house as well.
We would all definitely come back!

Absolutely Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5
Our group of 8 adults and 2 children rented this glorious house last weekend. Words cannot describe how nice it was. The neighborhood and surrounding area is quiet and peaceful and perfect for a family/friends vacation. The house itself is spacious, open and inviting with comfortable, elegant furniture throughout. The kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms are equipped with all the comforts of home, as well as the pleasures of a luxury vacation. The outdoor areas are equally wonderful. The pool was clean and lovely and the hot tub is divine. The children had fun picking cherries off the tree and we used the fresh herbs from the garden in our cooking. We plan to rent this house many more times in the future and will try to time our trips so that we can enjoy the other seasonal garden treats. I give this rental my highest recommendation. If you're reading this review, then I'm talking to you - you simply *must* rent this house for your trip and see for yourself.
