MID-CENTURY HILLTOP OASIS

Santa Rosa House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

This one acre property sits atop Taylor Mountain, 15 minutes southeast of downtown Santa Rosa; a whole world away from the hustle and bustle. This very private home is clustered within a small community of houses that are surrounded by ranches and vineyards affording breathtaking views high above most of the winter fog and cold temperatures of the Santa Rosa Plain. Bennett Valley, Kenwood and Glen Ellen are 20 minutes away and the historic town of Sonoma, Russian River Valley, Healdsburg and the Bodega Coast are 40 minute drives. The excitement of downtown San Francisco is just an hour away.

This classic ranch style home has high celings and an open floorplan with a chef's kitchen. The living/dining/family room opens to the large covered terrace, perfect for year-round alfresco dining. A cozy sitting area/library with 100's of varied titles to browse is nestled around a wood burning fireplace. The Master bedroom has bathroom en-suite and affords a wake up view of the valley below. The second bedroom has an en-suite bath with tub. Both bedrooms have queen beds and cable TV.

The gardens have been designed by the landscape architect owner and have been featured in Sunset Magazine/Western Garden Book, Better Homes and Gardens and other publications. Many garden rooms with different themes such as the English Mixed Border, the Sunset Perennial Hill, the Vegetable Terraces, the Lookout Point, The Maple Dell, have many different places to sit matching any particular mood. There are two water features and a pond full of colorful fish. (Please see the separate link to the Picassa Web Album for copious garden photos). The swimming pool shares the BBQ terrace with a nearby outdoor shower can be used after sundown under a star filled or even rainy sky.

Wildlife watching abounds, especially with the morning birds queueing up to be first in the feeder. Bluejays wait to be treated to peanuts and clumsy quail, sometimes 20 at a time jump up on the terrace wall in search of breakfast. Hawks, Geese, Woodpeckers and hungry Herons fly overhead and owls serenade at night. Deer, fenced out of the gardens, browse below and and an occasional fox can be seen at sundown along with turkeys roosting in the oaks.

Wineries, Armstrong Woods, Annadale State Park, the Prince Memorial Bike Trail along Santa Rosa Creek, Sugarloaf State Park, the Valley of the Moon, Lake Sonoma, Historic Petaluma, the Charles Shultz Museum are local attractions that are closeby. Downtown Santa Rosa with Historic Railroad Square is home to numerous restaurants, bookshops, antique shops, museums and theaters.

Keywords: Chef's kitchen, open floor plan, high ceilings, bright sunny rooms, resort style private gardens, expansive southwest views.

A VERY NICE PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
This place is like paradise. A superb view, a nice pool, a beautiful garden and a comfortable house is waiting for you. Richard and Bassam were very good hosts, they even make a very good cake for us at our arrival. This place is well positioned to visit wineries in Sonoma County, and you can drive one hour to visit wineries in Napa Valley. Thanks for this pleasant stay. We hope to return soon!

HEAVENLY RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
This review is long overdue. We spent our honeymoon at this beautiful property. What an amazing ten days we had! We were warmly welcomed -- and here is where the standout quality of this place begins--. Freshly squeezed citrus juices, home baked goods, fresh-picked fruits and vegetables; these were just a few of the special touches. Each day we seemed to discover some new area of this beautiful property--both outdoors and inside, where each room is tastefully decorated. I don't think we've ever found a place that so well suited our style and pace. Richard, the owner, was helpful and unobtrusive both; the perfect host. He has built a very unique home, where we felt fortunate to have the opportunity to celebrate this very special time in our lives.

RELAXING OASIS

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay at this beautiful house, It was well very clean and well maintained. The pictures are exactly as shown. The owners were wonderful with good communication and answered all our questions. Little extras like milk, eggs and bread left in the refrigerator were a plus! There was also a fabulous garden on the property but at the time we were renting ,it was a little too earlier for most of the crops so we did not get to enjoy it. The outside pool is very nice and warm with the solar heat for those chilly mornings or evening swims. Overall a great experience and we would rent again. The property is great for 2 couples and a family with adult children.

RETIRED EXECUTIVE; SPOUSE IS PRACTICING PLASTIC SURGEON

  • 5 of 5
Outstanding experience. My wife and I have traveled extensively domestically and abroad. This was our first VRBO experience and must admit we were apprehensive. All concerns vanished when our hosts greeted us at the door after a 10 hour trip on airplanes and at airports. They showed us their gorgeous home, explained thoroughly all the details of the residence, the area, favorite places of interest etc. The kitchen was well stocked with everything necessary to prepare meals if one chose to eat in, including fresh vegetables from their lavish garden, home made bread, etc. etc. We were their eight days and enjoyed all aspects of the home, from lounging on the patio, swimming in the pool, reading in the relaxed living room, to just sitting and taking in the views and scenery . We were so satisfied with the overall experience that we have booked another week in early October 2013.

FANTASTIC VIEW

  • 5 of 5
Our stay was fantastic. The view from the backyard was stunning. Wine, golf and then to come home to relax by the pool. What more could you want? Trying to describe the beauty of the landscaping would be impossible. You need to see it to believe it. Beautiful. I hope we have a chance to come back and stay again. Perfect for 2 couples.

FANTASTIC STAY IN WINE COUNTRY

  • 5 of 5
There were four of us (2 couples) who stayed a week during the Fall of 2012. We had a fabulous time! Immediately upon arrival to this home, we felt our stress levels drop with the peaceful surroundings of the property. The photos on the site are accurate in depicting the property, but they don't do real justice to the actual experience. The serenity of the gardens alone is well worth considering a stay here. Bird watching, deer, wild turkeys all add interest as well. There are several points within the gardens where you can sit and relax, just absorbing the beauty of the grounds. We were very comfortable in the home - plenty of room for the 4 of us. It was clean and very well maintained - no issues there.

The location is perfect as you're never more than about 30 minutes from any of the top wine country areas - Napa, Sonoma, Healdsburg, Dry Creek, Russian River Creek. This makes a perfect home base for exploring as much or as little as you want. San Francisco is about an hour away, also allowing for time in the City as desired. The owner was great - no issues or problems in arranging our stay. My only hesitation in recommending this location is that the secret will be out, making it more competitive for us if we want to stay again!
