This large 3+-bedroom, 2.5 bath vacation home is located amongst beautiful redwoods, on the bank of Matanzas Creek, on a 26 acre property, all situated in the heart of Bennett Valley, in Sonoma County. Oak trees, redwoods, and 100 year old bay trees as well as Matanzas Creek surround the house. The 3000+ sq.ft. house was remodeled in 2008, and brand new high quality furniture and appliances make the place exceptionally comfortable and easy to use.
As beautiful as the inside is, the outside is incredible. The majestic redwoods and bay trees decorate the large 2000 sq.ft. patio adjacent to Matanzas Creek, all surrounded by year long green vegetation. In season various flowers adorn the whole environment. The patio in the front and the deck adjacent to the kitchen are generously furnished, ready for outdoor entertainment and cooking, with two large grills, four heat lamps and two fire pits. Finally, yet importantly are the trails, alongside the creek under the breathtaking trees.
The children will enjoy the toys, kids power wheels, the bicycles, the basketball hoop, as well as the play structure and swings which make the whole place a heaven for kids. They can also run around the trails, in the vineyard , up and down the trees and just have a great time.
The Vineyard: The 10 acre vineyard consists of twelve blocks of different varietals and clones. Each season brings its own charm and beauty to the vineyard. The buds start coming out in spring and in September when the leaves start changing colors, it is amazing to look at the majestic grape bunches hanging from the vines.
Address: 3245 Matanzas Creek Lane, Santa Rosa, CA 95404
The vineyard is our second home, and we'll be glad to share it with others.
Thank you so much for opening your home and grounds to us. Our stay here at Moaveni Vineyard was absolutely delightful in every way. We enjoyed walking the trails, admiring the vineyard, and feeding the chickens, among many other things (oh, and the swing was so much fun). The attention to detail of both the house and the property was impeccable. One can tell the owners love their property, and this translates into a pleasurable vacation for those who appreciate both a beautiful landscape and the comforts of a cozy home. We will return again!!
This was a perfect place for our group on our annual outing. It was very impressive from the moment we turned into the property...beautiful vineyards and fantastic grounds. The home has so many places to gather to eat, visit, or just sit and enjoy the Redwoods all around the house and the sound of the water in the distance. The kitchen was completely stocked with any appliance or dish you would ever need. The owner and the person taking care of the home were so friendly and helpful and they did everything they could to make us comfortable, even gathering a dozen eggs from the chickens for our breakfast! Highly recommended!
My friends gather every March to cook, relax, watch hoops, shoot hoops, sit by the firepit, stretch our legs outside, and get away from it all. We've scoured VRBO, and there is no other place that could fit our needs any better. From the moment we pass through the gate and descend down the vineyard road towards the soaring redwoods and creek encircling the house, it is always a blissful and perfect stay, rain or shine. This is the fourth year we have been at Moaveni. It gets better every year. The new deck and bbq addition made a perfect house even better. The owners are very friendly, prompt with their communication, and easy to make arrangements with. We love the seclusion and amount of space offered by both the house and the surrounding environs -- the grassy field across the creek is a great spot for throwing a ball. The house is very comfortable with plenty of room for everybody to do their thing. But the living room with big tv, fireplace, and windows looking out to the trees and creek beyond is a fantastic place for a group to have a good time. Look forward to coming back with families as it would be a great spot for kids too. Already looking forward to next March. Highly recommended.
My only problem in writing this review is I wish I could give it more stars!! The house is just as described - clean, spacious, and very well maintained. We had 6 sisters-in-laws here for 5 nights. There was plenty of room and it felt like home immediately. The grounds were incredible - with the vines, flowers, gardens, chickens, paths, creek and bridges! The central location made it easy for us to go tasting in different directions too. We would all highly recommend this property and the special treatment from Shawn. He left us a nice gift basket, made sure we were comfortable, and we were able to taste wine from their vineyard - our favorite!!
This home was just stunning. The vineyard is hilly and beautiful. Even better, there are two redwood groves on the property. We had 7 adults and our 19 month old grand daughter. It was perfect for her with a playroom, playground, toys, crib and books. She loved the grapes and seeing the chickens. The house is spacious, comfortable and clean. We were in town for a wedding. We had a barbecue with several relatives and friends and everyone was amazed at how beautiful the whole thing was. The owner and his son-in-law (who is the winemaker) were very gracious hosts. Also, We enjoyed Matanzas Creek Winery which is a few minutes away. I look forward to coming back.
My husband, friends, and I rented this house to celebrate my 30th birthday. We could not have been more pleased with our stay. There were nine of us total and we had plenty of room to spread out. The house layout is very open so you do not feel like you are on top of each other all the time, which was important for our size group. The location is completely private and serene. We dined al fresco one night on the deck with the heaters and fire pit going. It was perfection! Shawn was great communicating with me prior to our trip to make sure we had everything we needed. Upon our arrival he left us a welcome basket with coffee, chocolate, and a bottle of wine from the family vineyard! We got to meet his son-in-law as he was processing a few bottles of wine in the cellar. Unfortunately, we didn't get the chance to head down and watch the process. He did however leave a special birthday bottle on the door step that he just corked for us to enjoy! We loved every minute of our stay and wish we could stay longer. I would definitely recommend staying here if you have a large group.
This is the second time we have visited Moaveni Vineyards vacation rental. We stayed for a long weekend with 3 couples. As was our experience the first visit, the house is beautiful, the grounds are gorgeous, and the environment is very relaxing. We cooked, walked, and visited, we were close to town if we needed anything but far enough away to feel like we were way out in the country staying on a vineyard. The owner's invite you into a home that they take great pride in and it feels very warm and luxurious. We actually live in Santa Rosa in a very small home and this worked perfectly for entertaining our friends. On this our second trip we found that the property had some added touchs that made it even nicer than our first stay. Trails around the property are well maintained, a couple new decks and more fruit trees, and gardens had also been added. The house is laid out well so that everyone felt they had privacy, yet there were many areas for all of us to congregate. With 6 of us we could have had 1 or 2 more people with no congestion at all. In the heart of wine country this location can't be beat.
