YOUR WINE-COUNTRY MOUNTAINSIDE HOME.

Glen Ellen House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms + loft, 3 full baths with mountain views, pool & hot tub

Tucked into the Mayacamas mountains separating the Sonoma and Napa Valleys, Oliveira has been optimized for relaxed adult entertaining.

The great room flows easily into over 1000 square feet of deck with a choice of eating and lounging areas. From your fully equipped kitchen, you can look out over the mountains as you prepare fresh seasonal produce paired with local meats, wines and cheeses.

The three bedrooms are outfitted with luxury beds and Italian linens and the loft has an additional queen size sleeper sofa with a bed-like mattress.

The three full baths are stocked with the finest quality towels, as well as Kiehls shampoo and custom-made local soaps.

There are three flat screen TVs with DirecTV, an Xbox 360 in the loft, a computer with color printer, internet access and unlimited domestic calls from the landline.

The salt-water pool has solar heat during spring, summer and fall and the six-person, salt-water hot tub is kept an inviting 100 degrees year-round.

There is a small garden at the entrance that can be enjoyed from the porch swing and the 10-acre property boasts over 150 olive trees - giving it it's name (Oliveira is Portuguese for 'olive tree'). There is extensive landscaping featuring lavender, rosemary and other flowering plants.

To help you feel welcome regardless of how far you traveled, the owners speak Portuguese, French and Spanish (and are fluent in Southern!).

Come share the wonder of the Mayacamas mountains with us for an unforgettable vacation.

About Dave Brinkley

We have called Glen Ellen home for six years. Our professional lives are split between the pharmaceutical industry and real-estate. We were drawn to the Sonoma Valley by the warmth - of the people and the climate - and are very active in the community. We invite you to come home to Sonoma!

Dave Brinkley purchased this house in 2012

Why Dave Brinkley chose Glen Ellen

We bought Oliveira because of its unique combination of seclusion and accessibility. Sitting on the deck around the pool, it's easy to forget that you are so close to so much. Yet, turn left out of the driveway and in fiive minutes you are in 'downtown' Glen Ellen, the heart of Sonoma Valley, with its world class restaurants, wineries, parks and amazing village market. Turn right out of the driveway and a beautiful twenty-minute drive lands you in Oakville, in the heart of Napa Valley.

What makes this house unique

Completely updated A-frame with expansive views of the Mayacamas mountains. The home has an open interior floor plan that is perfect for entertaining but is surpassed by the outdoor space - with salt-water pool and hot tub and a number of lounging and dining areas. Oliveira is the perfect place to get away from your 'regular' life and lose yourself in the wine-country lifestyle for a weekend a week or longer.

Oliveira

We were more than pleased with the rental home. It suited our needs perfectly! The outdoor deck and pool areas had gorgeous views! The owners thought of every conceivable need and even provided excellent recommendations for in-home catering, wineries, and restaurants to visit. We wouldn't have changed a thing and would return for another visit in a heartbeat!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5
Six of us spent a lovely weekend at this amazing home. Dave and David could not have been more thoughtful and the house was WELL beyond our expectations. The location is perfect for Sonoma Valley fans....close to great wine and food.

As someone who plans many group trips, it's often difficult to find a home that meets everyone's expectations....Oliveira did! We'll be back.

Thank you.

Great location, private get-a-way

  • 5 of 5
Oliveira is the perfect getaway in the Sonoma area. The owners have thought of everything. They were super responsive and provided great suggestions for the area, in addition to a wonderful welcome basket for us to enjoy. The house was impeccable, the bedrooms were large and the bathrooms were clean and updated. If you are looking for a secluded, private space, Oliveira is amazing. The pool and hot tub are an added bonus. You do need a car, however, there is a cab service that is available (Vern's). Highly recommend calling well in advance to secure a pick-up and drop-off. Overall 5-star accommodations.

Perfect Paradise

  • 5 of 5
We booked Oliveira for a girls weekend in wine Country and could NOT have asked for more!! The home itself is kept in pristine condition and the views cannot be beat! It felt like a dream waking up each morning and heading outside with our coffee. Not to mention, lounging by the pool during the day and the hot tub at night. There is no way we would have had the same experience at a hotel.
Dave and David have thought of EVERYTHING! From the sweet welcome basket right down to the towels by the sink for "makeup removal". We had the pleasure of meeting both of them upon our arrival(per our request to help us with the sound system) and we wished they could have joined us for the rest of the weekend! Great guys with great recommendations for our stay.
We can not say enough good things about our first VRBO experience! We still look at pictures and wish we could go back every day! Maybe with our husbands...or maybe not;)

Perfect Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I selected Oliveria based on the photos and the excellent reviews. You always wonder if the "press" is as good as it sounds. In this case, the answer is an unwavering "yes". Wow is this property gorgeous, extremely comfortable and beautifully appointed. David and Dave were really thoughtful about all the details and their genuine interest in providing great hospitality and a quality experience is evident. We especially enjoyed the spacious deck, the pool/hot tub, the privacy and the amazing sound system throughout the house and the outdoor space. The location is really lovely but the drive up/down the mountain is long and winding which is not for everyone. We stayed here with our two 20-something children and their significant others. We all totally loved it and can't wait to come back.

Sonoma Valley appeals to a large cross-section of interests. Many come for the food and wine and end up discovering the nuanced history of the region, the topography that is ideal for hiking and biking, the amazing bio-diversity and unspoiled wilderness so close to a major urban center and the outstanding weather. What brings people back time and again is the friendliness of the locals and the feeling that a progressive slice of small-town America is thriving in northern California. Come enjoy real wine country!
