Overview

Windsor House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.25 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This is a beautiful 4 bedroom home in the heart of Sonoma wine country. We're also situated on the 18th green of one of the premier pubic golf courses in the area with many other fantastic northern California golf courses in the immediate area. We're 5 minutes from the Russian River Valley, the Dry Creek Region, and the city of Healdsburg. Santa Rosa is only 10 minutes to the south. This is a great place to relax between wine touring, golfing, shopping, and exploring the nearby pacific coast. If you need the big city and impressive cultural life style, San Franscisco is only 90 minutes to the south along Highway 101.

This 2-story home includes a large private swimming pool with an integrated hot tub. The beautifully landscaped backyard showcases fruit trees and flowering plants and serves as a great backdrop for entertaining around the outdoor grilling center.

On the first floor guests will find a complete dining room, full-service kitchen with breakfast nook, and living room with gas fireplace. The four bedrooms as well as the laundry room are located on the second floor.

The spacious master bedroom allows for solitude in luxury. Guests can enjoy a soothing shower or relaxing bath in the jacuzzi tub while taking in spectacular views. The remaining 3 bedrooms have queen sized beds and share a full bath.

This house fulfilled a lifelong dream to create a haven in the wine country where one can escape 'reality'. We chose this house because it is surrounded by some of the finest dining, world class wines, and limitless outdoor activities.

About Barry Graves

I am a commercial general contractor living in Denver, Colorado. I now have the best of all worlds with a permanent home in beautiful, colorful Colorado and vacation home in the heart of the Sonoma wine country.

My son also reside in the Sonoma Valley and works in the town of St. Helena in the Napa Valley as a Director of Projects for capital improvements in the Constellation winery division. Prior to this position he spent three years as an assistant wine maker.

Barry Graves purchased this house in 2008

What makes this house unique

When I arrive at this Windsor, California home, a smile immediately appears on my face as I drive up Golf Course Drive and see the beautiful golf course that lies across the street from my destination. This course offers both challenging golf and incredible natural beauty with unique vegitation and wildlife.

Also situated adjacent to the golf course is a renowned restaurant called Charlie's that offers great food and an impressive wine list. Great opportunity to enjoy an nice meal and bottle of wine and take the 5 minute walk to the house along the golf course.

The two most impressive wine regions in the Sonoma Valley are only 5 minutes away. The Russian River Valley is only 5 minutes to the south and the Dry Creek region is only 5 minutes to the north.

If shopping in specialty shops that typify the region is your game, Healdsburg is only 5 minutes to the north and you will find many cute shops on the Square.

Healdsburg weekend crew

  • 5 of 5

Me and some of my girlfriends stayed here over the weekend and had a lovely time! The house is right across from a golf course in a very nice area. We loved this house. The pool and spa were wonderful. We had a great time and are looking forward to staying here next year on our annual girls weekend!

Great Family Accommodations

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this spacious four-bedroom home with our daughters and their families. The backyard oasis was the best thing about the home…warm pool and spa, built-in barbecue, fruit trees, and plenty of seating. The living areas inside were plentiful and the huge master bedroom had room for two large mattresses on the floor for our younger grandchildren. The kitchen was stocked with spices, coffee and coffee filters, utensils, and dishes. Our sons-in-law enjoyed golfing at the course across the street, and we stayed in the Sonoma/Healdsburg area to wine taste, rent a pontoon boat on Lake Sonoma, and explore the town of Windsor.

Great space and location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented Barry's home for 2 months. The house space is open yet has a cozy feel. Noteworthy were: very comfortable beds, ample sheets, towels and linens, stocked kitchen tools and outdoor grill. The pool/spa are exceptional as is the large and private backyard. Barry was attentive to any house issues we had, and repair work was almost immediate. We enjoyed playing golf across the street at the Windsor Golf Club. The restaurants in Windsor are quite good especially Asian cuisine. The house is perfectly located for exploring the Dry Creek, Russian and Anderson Valley vineyards. We look forward to returning very soon.

Far and Away Exceeded our Expectations

  • 5 of 5

Where do I start?? First, dealing with Barry was easy and communication was great from the start. Everything from making the deposit, to the staggered payments, all the way to the detailed instructions, fell into place. We flew in from Austin, TX for a cycling event, which we made into a weeklong excursion. From the moment we drove up, we knew it was going to be a great week. The house has everything you could possibly need. From TV’s, appliances, to dish ware, the house was fully stocked and comfortable. The linens were fresh, bedding was clean, and overall we could not ask for a better place to call home for the week. The BBQ and spa were used nightly after hundreds of miles and many hours in the saddle. I cannot stress how relaxing and great this place is. When you travel, you always want to get away and not have to worry about your accommodations. This is one of those places where you can just relax, chill, and worry about what you are going to do next. Thanks to Barry and his family for letting us stay at your beautiful home. We look forward to coming back and having even a better time in Windsor than we did this year.

NEEDS PROFESSIONAL CLEANING!!!

  • 2 of 5

This house at first glance was very appealing. It is spacious, and the backyard is gorgeous. However, once we all celebrated the superficial appearance of this house, we saw a lot of issues.

The bathrooms were DEFINITELY not cleaned. There was hair in the shower. The floors in the bathroom were filthy. The hot tub never got up to the ideal temperature. There was food left in the disposal. There was dust on the shelves and staircase. The kitchen was not properly stocked. After finding the hair in the shower, we were worried that the bedsheets may not have been changed. Sure enough, when we pulled back the comforter, we saw a couple pieces of hair on top of the sheets. I'm not sure who cleans the house and how often, but with the amount that is charged per night, in my opinion, it should be PROFESSIONALLY cleaned after each stay.

Owner's Response: It is difficult to live up to every renter's expectations and each individual expects different elements when renting through VRBO. There are no established standards and no two house are ever the same. If you expect everything to live up to your standards at your home, you may be disappointed. In four years of renting this home through VRBO, this is the first note of disappointment. I always strive to accommodate my guest's every need and have been quite successful at it. After each renter departs, the house is completely and professionally cleaned and all bed linens are washed and placed on the beds. I strive to make every renter's stay a great experience and hope they enjoy it as much as I do whenever I stay there. As with every home, there will be items that breakdown or need to be replaced or repaired, but I always try to be available and responsive to all reasonable requests. Thank you

Groom's family wedding weekend

  • 5 of 5

This home is very nice and spacious. It faces the golf course and is quiet. It is furnished nicely with enough items in kitchen to cook even though we did not. The backyard is beautiful as well. It is close to downtown Windsor and of course many wineries. We were there for our son's wedding so we did not utilize the pool! Barry was very easy and great to work with! We hope to rent it again!

Car: recommended

My home is located across the street from one of the best public golf courses in the Sonoma Wine Country. We are only 10 minutes from either the Dry Creek or the Russian River wine districts. You can be in downtown Healdsberg or Santa Rosa in 10 minutes. Beautiful bicycling roads throughout the area. You can be on the beach at Jenner within 40 minutes and 60 minutes to historic Bodega Bay.

The drive from the Oakland International Airport is made within 45 minutes. Napa Valley is only 45 minutes to the east. This is an ideal opportunity for wine lovers and outdoor enthusiasts.

Across the road from 18th green on the Windsor Golf Course.
