About Seth Israel

We live in San Francisco and love the wine country. Originally from the east coast, we have lived in San Francisco Bay Area for nearly 15 years.

Seth Israel purchased this house in 2012

Why Seth Israel chose Sonoma

Sonoma is a special place and this home has many of the key attributes that make this experience special - close to many wineries and attractions, beautiful peaceful views of adjacent farmland, vineyards, and hills, plenty of land to roam around, a classic barn for entertaining, and great indoor and outdoor space for relaxing.

What makes this house unique

The living areas - both indoor and outdoor - rural setting, beautiful views, and central location make this place truly unique.

Awesome stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing stay here! The house was so spacious and so many different areas that anyone who needed a little "alone time" had the space to do so. We came in February so we did not use the pool, however the hot tub was definitely perfect after a long day wine tasting! We didn't really utilize the barn/play room, but it would be great place for any families with teenagers to hang out in. The location was perfect as well! So close to restaurants, stores and wineries as well. It was perfect for us since we did tours in both Sonoma & Napa! Seth was easy to work with as well. We highly recommend this place!

Wonderful and Relaxing stay in beautiful Sonoma!!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have loved our stay at this Sonoma retreat any more than we did!! This home was absolutely perfect for our girls weekend, and accomodated our group very comfortably! Seth, the owner, was easy to get in touch with and had left very careful and simple instructions at the home to guide us through our stay. The house was clean and cozy when we arrived and we had everything we could have possibly needed. The backyard space is incredible, the perfect place to watch the sunsets, hang out by the pool and enjoy the hot tub. The living and dining area was more than comfortable for meals all together, watching movies, and relaxing. The bedrooms were super cozy and inviting. We didn't use the barn too much but we checked it out and it would be an awesome hangout space for families and groups with kids. We all agreed that our husbands would have loved it!! Being a group of girls, we all felt completely safe at the house and had absolutely zero issues during our stay. If I were to ever come back to Sonoma, I would stay here again in a heartbeat as we could not have asked for a better experience or a more perfect place to stay!

Outstanding Sonoma Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My son and I decided to rent this wonderful home in Sonoma to celebrate my grandson's 4th birthday. It was clean, safe, well marked and well maintained. All the descriptions were spot on, as well as the online photos. The owner answered my questions promptly. I would highly recommend this property to anyone. What a perfect location and a short drive for having a child's birthday party at Train Town--just a few miles down the road. His friends from Mill Valley could easily drive to the darling Train Town for the party and return in the same afternoon.

We wanted to include my niece and her family who live in Lotus, CA, on our weekend festivities--a long overdue reunion. We were all very comfortable and thankful to have such a lovely home for our gathering. The owner, Seth, has done due diligence readying this home making sure everything--and I mean everything--is well stocked and well appointed with lovely furnishings, kitchen paraphernalia, towels, sheets, blankets, etc. We made lots of wonderful family memories at this wonderful property. We will definitely come again. After all the children left, my husband, cousin and I toured the Benziger Winery in Glen Allen--a very high tech and environmentally conscious vineyard. Later in the evening, we went to a restaurant in Glen Allen called Star. It was excellent. Seth's home is centrally located and very convenient to the lovely downtown Sonoma village.

We look forward to our next visit to this outstanding property.

Perfect spot for our family gathering!

  • 5 of 5

Our week spent at this house was one of the most relaxing in years. The occasion was a family gathering of sisters, husbands and sons and this house turned out to be the perfect choice for our group of eight. We chose the spot because we like Sonoma's charming town square and nearby wineries, and because of its proximity to Napa, San Francisco and the coast. Once we arrived we were reluctant to leave the premises! The owner has chosen tasteful furnishings for the house and provided activities with his guests' comfort and pleasures in mind. It feels luxurious without being pretentious. The barn is a unique feature of this property, offering an area for relaxation and fun. We enjoyed the pool and patio and the gorgeous views of the sunsets and the neighboring field. There was plenty to do and to enjoy. We have plans to return to this beautiful retreat and we've already recommended it to friends.

Unforgettable vacation at this AMAZING property!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about this property! We were in Sonoma to attend a wedding and had an amazing stay. It was perfect for our group, which included 3 couples, but the house could easily and comfortably accommodate 8. We were a little worried about feeling cramped or that we wouldn't be able to “get away from each other,” but with the open floor plan and multiple areas of the house, it was no issue at all. The house is cozy, inviting, and very clean. It’s updated throughout and includes almost everything you might need for your stay. The beds were VERY comfortable and the sheets were SUPER soft. There were only 2 bathrooms for the 3 couples, but again it wasn’t an issue. The master bath is big and includes a huge walk in shower and spa tub. The master bedroom is large with a huge walk in closet and has a little patio with a separate door off the side. The other 2 bedrooms are good size and have nice closet space. The living room has a large, comfy sectional with a flat screen TV and the kitchen is equipped with almost everything you will need (all we bought were our groceries.) The WI-FI worked perfectly and the Sonos audio system was one of the highlights for us. It can play music indoor & outdoor and we used it everyday. The entire property and its surroundings are beautiful but the views from the large windows in the house and out onto the patio are breathtaking. We spent most sunrises/sunsets/evenings on the patio in the comfy seating area sipping wine. It was a bit too cold for the pool, but it is a nice feature. There is also a heater on the patio to use. The house is on a quiet street and is a 5 minute drive to Sonoma Square and about a 20-30 minute drive to Napa. The owner, Seth, was very accommodating and answered all of my questions/concerns quickly.

I looked through tons of listings and reviews and I'm so glad I chose this house. It definitely sets the bar for any of our future vacation rentals! There is no question we will try to stay here again when in the area!

Fantastic place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

I came to Sonoma for the first time with a group of girls from all over the country. We had such an amazing stay at this house! There is a ton of space and the open kitchen/living/dining room layout was ideal for us. The bedrooms were great too and the master bathroom was amazing, more than enough space for the 7 of us. The sunsets overlooking the farm were incredible and I hope to come back sometime in the summer to take advantage of the pool! Overall a really great place to spend the weekend but I could have easily spent the week as well. The owner, Seth is great to work with and extremely accommodating. I highly recommend this property!
