Welcome to one of Sonoma County’s finest vacation homes:
Mantanzas Maison offers a dramatically beautiful home inspired by French Provincial architecture, conveniently located in the very heart of Sonoma County’s world renowned wine country with easy access to the myriad and varied attractions of Healdsburg, Sonoma, Sebastopol, Bodega Bay and only an hour’s drive from San Francisco itself.

The high peaked rooflines, the stucco exterior, vaulted ceilings, wood windows, wide plank pine floors, hand troweled plaster walls and sunlit rooms all contribute to the unique European ambiance of this charming property.
Our guests enjoy the warm Mediterranean like climate while sitting poolside sipping a glass of their favorite wine and sampling from an abundance of local cheeses, fruits and other delicacies.
Beyond the entry hall area, lies the living room with a gas fireplace and a massive arched top window looking out to the front lawn. The dining room windows look out towards Spring Creek as well as French doors leading to a covered porch with outdoor seating near the pool. The kitchen and nook area offer separate views of the pool, accessible by another set of French doors.

Thank you for a wonderful week in Santa Rosa. My family and I had the perfect week reconnecting with our friends here in town. Your house was more than accommodating. The kids had a great time in the pool and the yard. The house is welcoming and spacious. We hope to get back to Santa Rosa next summer. All the best.
We were visiting Santa Rosa for a family wedding and chose this home because it was close to where the bride and groom lived. We were 3 couples, one with a toddler, another couple solo and another couple with 2 college-age girls. The main space of the house was big enough that everyone was happy and we didn't get in each other's way. The master bedroom was spacious and had a small outdoor balcony. One thing to consider is that the bathroom in the master bedroom does not have a door and so if you are 4 people (using the trundle bed) there may be a problem with who is in the room when someone else is showering ... We worked it out so it wasn't a real problem. The other two bedrooms were somewhat small, especially with a crib in one, but like I said, it all worked out. The house was very comfortable and it had every amenity described in the listing. We contacted the owners about the whereabouts of the crib and they were very helpful in pointing us in the right direction. We didn't get to use the pool because it wasn't warm enough, but I should think in the warmer months it would get a lot of use! It was a very nice place to stay and we would recommend it to others!
THIS WAS A GIRLS GET A WAY AND IT WAS WONDERFUL!!! THE HOUSE WAS BEAUTIFUL AND VERY CLEAN. WE HAD 6 WOMEN AND WE WERE VERY COMFORTABLE. WE WENT ON WINE TOURS DURING THE DAY, THAT WERE VERY EASY TO GET TO, AND WE GATHERED AT THE POOL AT NIGHT FOR OUR OWN WINE TASTING AND CONVERSATION! WE WOULD DO IT AGAIN IN A HEART BEAT. THANK YOU JACKIE FOR ALL YOUR RECOMMENDATIONS AND ACCOMMODATIONS:) THE GIRLS FROM MINNESOTA WILL BE BACK!!
Our three generation party of 7 recently stayed in this beautiful home for 4 day stay to celebrate our mom's 70th Birthday. We chose the Santa Rosa area for it's convenient proximity to various points of interest in Sonoma County that would be interesting for two kids as young as 8, as well as for their parents and grandparents. We visited Healdsburg, Guerneville & Johnson's beach, and the coast. Within Santa Rosa, we were extremely close to the Russian River Brewing Company (for the beer fans out there!), great biking and running at nearby Howarth/Spring Lake/Annadel Parks, and the terrific Charles Schulz museum.
I can't say enough about how perfect this location was for our group. We had enough space, yet there was a coziness about the home. My own family of 4 stayed in the very spacious master bedroom, which still had enough space for all of us to spread out and be comfortable. The pool was a great feature for our older kids aged 8 and 11, and the grounds are beautiful.
Jackie, the host, was very friendly and responsive, making herself available for any questions we had. On the Sunday we were to arrive, Wine Country was hit with a strong earthquake. When I had called her to see if all was okay, she offered to call the local grocery store to make sure they were open and unaffected by the temblor. I really appreciated the offer which helped me know that I didn't need to make a plan b for stocking the fridge!
I'm so glad we chose to stay here and would highly recommend it to friends and family!
Matanzas Maison was the perfect place for two couples doing a week in wine country. (I hope the earthquake didn't do any damage). Immaculate condition, well stocked kitchen, lovely pool and deck area. Grill works great. Comfy, homelike and plenty of space to stretch out! Close to Oliver's Market (great shopping) and you are in the middle of wine country!!! Jackie goes above and beyond-even got a message to us when we couldn't be found! Outstanding.
We (5 college buddies) had our annual reunion about a week ago in this house. We definitely wanted a place with outdoor swimming pool for afternoon cool down (after visiting wineries), and this house met our expectations. Also, the neighborhood is quiet w/ rather large grounds and reasonably well maintained. The master bedroom is huge, but the other two bedrooms could be larger with better ventilation since house has no A/C although it gets cool at nights in that area. Layout of the house is nice and kitchen is large and reasonably well equipped. Location has very close proximity to a shopping mall with nice grocery store (Lucky's) and couple of nice restaurants as well as CA 12 & 101. Overall, we enjoyed our stay, and would recommend this place.
On a related note, we acquired services of Sharon and her daughter from Valet of the Moon wine tours to drive our car to different wineries (no need to get arrested for DUI while on vacation), and would recommend them as well.
We stayed here with our children and both sets of parents and found it to be a perfect fit for everyone. The owners were extremely helpful with providing great restaurants, wineries and near by shopping. It was a very central location for touring wineries and if not.....lounging by the pool!!
