GORGEOUS DESIGNER HOME WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE TO 8 WINERIES! THIS IS THE SPOT!

Sonoma Estate Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 6+ adults luxuriously / 3 spacious bathrooms

One of the few vacation rental properties within walking distance to so many wineries! Hacienda Sonoma was custom built in 2008 -- professionally designed and beautifully decorated, every detail has been thoughtfully considered with wonderful weekends in mind. Entertaining is easy here, and the location is perfect -- walk to seven wineries, (and over 50 wineries within 10 miles), walk to a nice dinner, and no one has to be the 'D.D.' on vacation. If you're a 'foodie,' this house was designed for you! Every possible amenity is available for entertaining in style, including a wood-fired pizza oven!

The Hacienda offers a huge professionally-equipped gourmet kitchen (2 dishwashers!), luxurious pillow-top mattresses, travertine bathrooms with lots of elbow space, two fireplaces, bocce court, pool table and bar, plasma TV, and whole-house sound system. Our gardens are filled with flowers (plus a lavender field behind the house - 540 French lavender plants!), a zinfandel vineyard, and herb garden. Gorgeous outdoor living / dining / and cooking areas are lit by chandeliers.

A thousand activities close by!: Sonoma Valley is full of fun things to do. Whether you're into birdwatching or skydiving, there's something fun for you in our area. There is a full listing of area golf courses, event calendars, and ideas for planning your vacation on our website at: http://www.haciendasonoma.com/index_files/activities.htm.

Girls' weekends are great at Hacienda Sonoma! We can arrange for a private chef and/or massage therapists on site, and there is also one of the World's top spas (as rated by Conde Nast magazine) just a couple of minutes down the road, with a gorgeous adults-only pool for your use. The best part about our location in Wine Country? No one has to be the driver. There is a full weekend of wine-tasting within a 5-block radius of our property. If you'd like to sample some of the more than 50 wineries within a 10-mile radius, let us recommend a great limo service to take you wine-tasting in style!

A foodie/wine-lover's paradise: Sonoma Valley has been rated as one of the top destinations in the world for food and wine, and Hacienda Sonoma was designed to be the perfect environment for enjoying them. Our kitchen is huge, and extremely well equipped. When have you rented a vacation home that came with an Italian wood-fired pizza oven, a KitchenAid stand mixer, an emulsion blender, two dishwashers, two coffee pots, built-in grill, electric wine bottle opener, and matching place settings for 20? We love to cook and entertain, and we love to do it in style. Visit the local farmers' markets and be inspired, or, hire our chef to come and cook for a truly memorable occasion.

Fun is everywhere at Hacienda Sonoma! Our bocce court, pool table, whole-house sound system, plasma T.V., upstairs bar, Blu-Ray DVD player, DVR, DirecTV Satellite system, VCR, puzzles, board games, WiFi, and even the redwood play structure in the back yard, means that fun is had by everyone in the group.

I'm a grapegrower, winemaker, mom of two kids, and executive recruiter. My husband, Rick, and I are wine lovers and enjoy 'getting away from it all' but not so much that we have to get in the car and drive a long way to do something fun. We can walk to many of the wineries in our area, some great restaurants, a neighborhood market, and some cute shops. We can walk down the street to live music, food pairings, or barrel tastings on most weekends, and are surrounded by the friendliest people. We love Sonoma Valley!

Bridget Henry purchased this estate in 2007

We looked for 5 years for the perfect spot to build a custom home. At first, we looked at mountaintop properties with expansive views, but we quickly realized the drive up a winding narrow road would defeat the purpose of buying in Wine Country. We wanted to be near everything fun, enjoy a short stroll to dinner or lunch, or even walk to a wine and food pairing. And yet, we didn't want the traffic and noise of being downtown, and we wanted the gorgeous views of rolling vineyards. Kenwood is our perfect spot! Our friends can visit and no one has to be the 'D.D.' There is a World-Class spa about two minutes down the street, great restaurants, fabulous wineries, golf, and a small-town feel to our area.

We are one of the few vacation rental properties so close to the many gorgeous vineyards in our area. You can walk just 2-4 blocks for wine tasting at 7 wineries. One of them offers a 7-course gourmet food pairing for just $25! It's food and wine heaven in our neighborhood. The house is custom-built with lots of fun amenities like a bocce court, pool table, zinfandel vineyard, giant gourmet kitchen, lavender field, two fireplaces, soaking tubs, and more. We gave a lot of thought to every detail (we had 5 years to think about it!), and the house was designed with entertaining in mind.

LOVE THIS HOUSE!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
My 5 girlfriends and I rented this home for a girls wine tasting weekend getaway! It was perfect!! The home is decorated so beautifully, not one detail was overlooked!! I loved that each bedroom had a king bed and its own bathroom!! Made for a very comfortable stay for 6 gals who tend to spend a lot of time primping!! We spent one day doing a walkabout in Kenwood. The house is close to several tasting rooms and restaurants and we had a blast walking from location to location. We also capitalized on the large, fully stocked kitchen including an outdoor grill and pizza oven! We loved the played bocce-ball court – a sport you can easily play holding a glass of wine!! The owner (Bridget) is super sweet, professional and accommodating. All in all, 5 stars for this Hacienda! I will definitely be returning!

WHAT A PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
This gem of a home is tucked away down a side street in Kenwood. Seemed odd at first but easy to find. I would have loved to see it with everything in bloom; however, in the thick of winter it was warm and inviting. Close to everything we wanted to do - tour wineries. Great kitchen and the outdoor pizza oven has motivated me to remodel my backyard to include one. Played a little bocce. drank a little wine. Great place to bring friends to. We traveled with two other couples. Plenty of room for all. I would highly recommend the Hacienda Sonoma for those looking for a place to stay while exploring Napa and Sonoma.

GORGEOUS VACATION HOME

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent a week to celebrate our 8th anniversary. We have rented many homes in Sonoma County and this did not disappoint. The location was very convenient with many wineries close by. I highly suggest bwise tasting room. The wines and people are amazing.

The home had everything we could possibly need and even though it was winter and we couldn't enjoy the outside, the landscape was beautiful.

We cooked many nice dinners in the gourmet kitchen and on the grill. We played pool and generally relaxed every evening.

It is truly a lovely property and we would definitely recommend this home for anyone looking for luxury vacation rentals.

GORGEOUS, PRIVATE, GREAT LOCATION!!

  • 5 of 5
Let me say I never write reviews. But I just had to for this. It started with the planning. Right away, working with the owner, Bridget, I knew this was going to be a great experience. She was responsive and provided so many details on the property. It was more amazing than the pictures if that is even possible. Top of the line everything! The property is picturesque and the town of Kenwood is quaint and if you're there for wine, you're smack dab in the middle of wine country. Amazing views and great distance to wineries! We can't wait to go back! It was a trip we will cherish forever and will always remember the Hacienda.

OUTSTANDING PROPERTY - AMAZING VACATION GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
If you are interested in staying in a wonderful area of Sonoma that is in close proximity to everything you need, end your search with Hacienda Sonoma! 6 of us (3 couples) traveled to Sonoma/Napa for a few days and could not have had a better experience. This home exceeded our expectations with incredible amenities and its immaculate condition. Bridget was so kind and helpful in preparing us for our trip and we could not have had a better stay. We played bocce in the backyard, made our own brick oven pizza, enjoyed wine we purchased while sitting on the gorgeous patio and even managed to get a couple of games in on the billiards table. Do yourself a favor and check out this wonderful vacation rental.

FIVE STARS!!!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I along with another couple stayed in Hacienda Sonoma for a week and cannot say enough great things about it. Bridget made it so easy for us (we flew from Cape Cod, Massachusetts which is pretty much the farthest East you can get to San Fran, the farthest West!! The house was completely furnished with everything you could want! Amazing fully stocked chefs kitchen, beautiful serving dishes and glassware, the most comfortable beds with fine hotel quality linens, hairdryers, plenty of towels, modern washer/dryer, two dishwashers, big flat screen tv upstairs, great soundsystem (that is hooked to everyroom!) The outdoor sitting area was fantastic. Loved the outdoor table surrounded by amazing vines, rose bushes, lavendar, and the perfect herb garden that complemented every meal we made. The Bocce court hosted more than one grand championship (the boys won) and the pool table upstairs was the perfect end to our adventurous days (the girls won!) We hit 7 Winery's all within 3 miles... some within 3 blocks (Make sure you do the tasting at 1400 ft at Ridge!!!) We drove to the Armstrong National Forest (only 30 miles) for an incredible picnic amongst the Redwoods and then looped around to the Pacific coast for an incredible drive.. Sights you can't imagine. Then it was back to our beautiful Hacienda Sonoma for dinner. We made pizza in the outdoor pizza oven and watched the meteor showers from the unobstructed back yard. The residential neighborhood is quiet and peaceful and there is a market and package store down the street as well as some amazing restaurants for dinners (or lunches) out. We were so sad to leave, but can guarantee that we will be back!!! Thanks again Bridget for a wonderful vacation!!!
