SONOMA & THE VALLEY OF THE MOON - Sonoma Vacation Rental estate like a country park resting on 2 1/4 acres in the exclusive and historic Spreckels Estate enclave of Sobre Vista. One of the finest Sonoma Vacation Rentals and Sonoma Luxury Rentals and Vacation Homes. Sonoma Vacation Rental in the Valley of the Moon including a grand 6,500 square foot mid-century contemporary home that was built along side the historic 1898 Spreckels Estate tennis court. There is a classic Thomas Church designed swimming pool, a raised grass volleyball court, basketball, horseshoes, croquet, picnic areas, hammocks and an outdoor Jacuzzi. We always hear, in view of the limited photographs, that the property is so much more than our guests expected. We love it, and hope that you will too.
Common Areas: The home features a 40 foot entrance gallery leading to the great room with its 17 foot ceilings and massive stone fireplace. On either side of the great room is the formal dining room and the den with stone fireplace. A large chef's kitchen compliments the morning breakfast room with stone fireplace and overlooks the pool, tennis court and valley views to the east. Through the adjacent billiard room you enter the family room with baby grand piano and 50' flat screen television. The artwork is historic and thought-provoking...cupids and kings, horses and cavaliers, Chinese figurines, allegories, myth and legend.
The Spa Feeling... the 7 Bedrooms & Bathrooms: While the home's interior common areas resemble a country manor or lodge the bedrooms and bathrooms are very modern and feel like a spa. Each of the 7 bedrooms are color coordinated in soft light and dark taupes and have resort quality organic linens, waffles-robes, towels and duvets from Coyuchi. All bedrooms come with custom walnut shelving, flat screen televisions with built-in DVD players, and Ipod compatible clock amplifiers. Each of the bathrooms are encased in seagreen limestone and installed with European Lacava counter-top sinks, custom teak shelving and hardware from the Purist Collection. And though our other bathrooms have porcelain soaking tubs, the master bathroom suite is a special and private spa experience with a 'Tea For Two' jetted tub, double headed stall shower, and separate his and her unpacking and dressing areas. Very romantic.
Figs, Family & Friends: The home is big, and at the same time inviting and cozy. The many wood burning stone fireplaces, easy chairs and sofas provide ample opportunity for social settings and peaceful areas to find some time alone. Sobre Vista has many personalities just as the outdoors call for laying out on the lawns, picking figs, plums, apples, blood-oranges, white grapefruit, lemons and peaches or reading around the pool, playing tennis or volleyball and later a family game of croquet or horseshoes. You won't be bored. You and your family and friends will truly enjoy the seamless pleasures of our Sobre Vista Estate. From relaxation and recreation to dining, reading, thinking and just being...your time here will be memorable...a peaceful and entertaining home away from home.
The proprietor of the Sobre Vista Resort is San Francisco Real Estate Developer Scott L Robertson. Scott is also the owner and developer of The Regency Center--the largest privately owned Special Events and Concert faciltity in the Bay Area.
After searching nearly 20 years the property at Sobre Vista became available. The rest was easy...this niche neighborhood is above and beyond compare to almost any other location in Sonoma County...The Valley of the Moon.
We have updated and changed our overnight and rate policies. In Sonoma County recently changed vacation home regulations have tightened up on larger functions and gatherings leading to limitations on guest uses while renting vacation properties. NEW RATES for the 2011 season are as follows:
FREE Fourth Night is at no charge throughout the year. $1950 for Friday/Saturday. $1350 weekdays.
Children three and under do not add to the overall guest limitations. 14 adults overnight...and six additional (non-overnight) guests to share in your activities while on the estate. See you soon. Scott
The house is very spacious and comfortable. It is perfectly set up for family gatherings. One of best thing about this house is the manager. Her name is Sufia. She is the sweetest person I ever met. She was helpful in all aspects starting with the finding catering companies, expediting communications with the owner of the property. When we came to look at the house, she treated us as her relatives or old friends. She also gave us lots of advice regarding organizing our party. It was a pleasure to deal with her. The only one downside was the neighbor (one in particular) who complained about noise at 4:00 p.m. We got a phone call from security warning us about a potential fine due to a noise complaint.
This was a terrific house for our group. Plenty of room with loads of common space to enjoy. We put the tennis court, the pool and the ping pong table all to really good use. The bedrooms are nicely appointed and comfortable. The owner and the manager were very easy to deal with and accommodating. Kitchen worked great for our group.
The only downside we had, as a 40th birthday party, was that we were intent on having a good time. Through no fault of the owner, the neighbors (I would imagine there is one in particular) were adamant about the 10pm curfew, which was fine, we were finishing dinner outside and did not realize the time. We moved indoors and there is plenty of space for it. However we were called by security a second time the next day -- while we were not even at the house -- and accused of being loud again. Security warned their could be a fine. I found this to be a little much. While I would absolutely recommend the place and the owner, I'd caution that if you will have a louder group that you'd need to be aware of the noise issues.
We went to Sobre Vista for my husband's birthday with four other families. We could not have had a better time. The house was gorgeous - spacious, with a lot of character (we loved "the great room"), comfortable and stocked with everything you could need from extra sheets to games to mattresses. Since we had a bunch of kids, the family room with the pool table, piano and tv came in very handy when we wanted to get some adult time on the other side of the house. The tennis court is gorgeous, and its location right near the pool meant that you could cool off as soon as you were done.
Sufia, the property manager, was very helpful and available at any time when we needed her. There is a Safeway and Whole Foods close by in case you need to stock up but other than that, no need to leave the property. The kitchen is a bit dated but has everything you need and 2 dishwashers and coffee machines. We stayed 2 nights and it still wasn't enough to enjoy every nook of the house. Highly recommend it. My only gripe is that it's not available for my birthday coming up! This is my go-to house for groups in Sonoma!
The home was better than described. We had a great time. Very clean. Our only regret was that we didn't realize until the last day that there all kinds of toys in the garage. We would have loved playing croquet on the huge lawn. We be back.
We were in Sonoma for our son's wedding in June. After much research, we decided on Sobre Vista for our large group - and it was a GREAT decision! Everything was perfect, and all the facilities were superior. All the amenities were used - swimming pool, tennis courts, horshoe court, outdoor dining areas. It made the whole weekend even more special. Scott, the owner, couldn't have been accommodating. Hopefully, we will be back!
My family (8 adults; 6 kids) stayed here over Christmas 2009 it was perfect! The house, grounds and furnishings are absolutely astounding! Truly one of the nicest places I've ever stayed. Scott (the owner) is very accomodating and professional -- much appreciated and we will be back in Summer 2010!
Sonoma, Sonoma County, Wine Country, California, USA (Near Sonoma Town Square: Wine Tasting, Golf, Hiking, Biking) -- The property is 'gated' at the entry to provide maximum privacy, security and safety at all times. Sonoma generally, and Sobre Vista especially, are very safe environments...still the gates are nice. Mountain View: Beautiful sunrises over the eastern hills rimming the Valley of the Moon can be seen from most of the property. At night, the skyscape explodes with stars and constellations. Our estate is part of the 3000 acre 1898 Speckles Estate. The original main residence compound is just 14 acres and provides wonderful walks among mature trees along with some interesting history. Charley Chaplin and Ronald Reagan played on our tennis court...just as the Speckles Estate itself was once called 'The San Simeon of the North.'
Other Activities: shopping, basketball court, health/beauty spa, horseshoes
