Wine Country Paradise
Montedulche is a beautiful property in a perfect location. The home and grounds are even better than the photos posted on line. Charlie is a fabulous host. He stayed in close contact from booking to checkout, and checked in with us during our stay. We rented the estate for our daughters wedding bridal party. They were over the top ecstatic with their stay at Montedulche. The beautiful entry and and portico has gorgeous vineyard views. It was the perfect location for our daughter and her brides maids pre-wedding prep photos. The day after the wedding the wedding party got back together for a post wedding BBQ pool side at Montedulche’s beautiful pool overlooking the vineyards. It was the perfect finish to an amazing wedding weekend in Sonoma.
The house is well equipped for your every need. There is a beautiful renovated kitchen outfitted to meet the needs of even the most accomplished chefs. The bedrooms and bathrooms are beautifully decorated and spacious. The master has fantastic vineyard and Mountain View’s. All facilities in the home worked perfectly especially the air conditioning which was needed on two days that exceeded 100 degrees. Every switch or control device in the home is well marked, and WiFi worked flawlessly.
Charlies local host, Diane gave us an excellent orientation to the home upon check in as well as providing some historical background of the estate. She was a lovely person and extremely helpful.
We couldn’t have been happier with our experience at Montedulche and highly recommend this estate for a group visit to Sonoma or for a small special event.
Great wine country get-away
Wonderful property and helpful/attentive host.
Thanks, Matt! Really appreciate the positive feedback and hope to welcome you and your family again soon.
Incredible weekend to celebrate my youngest sisters bachelorette party. We had 12 girls stay. The house is stocked with everything you need. The house is very clean. The pool area is gorgeous, the views are spectacular. Charlie & Diane were both a pleasure to work with. I cannot wait to come back!
Dreamy Abode in Wine Country
Myself and 11 other girls stayed at Charlie's stunning home for a bachelorette weekend in June. The property and house could not be more beautiful- every detail from the throw pillows, wine glasses, lounge furniture, and 'welcome' bottle of wine with cheese were perfection. Highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a private, dreamy-escape to wine country. Charlie was also super communicative and helpful throughout the process. We did not want to leave!!
Great space for large group
The house is located just far enough off the main road to provide for a relaxing and peaceful oasis. Rooms were large and accommodating for our group of 10 adults. Owner provided great recommendations and communicated via text which worked great with a large group. Cell service at house did have some dead spaces so connect to WiFi (those with kids back at home had some difficulty face timing until connecting to WiFi). The kitchen has everything you need and more and the towels,sheets,etc were higher end with plenty of extras. Was so nice we cancelled dinner reservations for one night to grill at house and dine pool side. Security cameras in main living space (connected to kitchen) was on the whole stay (green light on camera never turned off) which made a few guests uncomfortable but we didn’t let it bother us. We didn’t see any cameras in bedrooms or bath areas. The house is after all a bit remote which is great and makes security cameras reasonable. Pool area is beautiful and made for a great setting for dinner or morning yoga. Not sure it would work for really small children. Didn’t see any play areas and the higher end finishes would worry me if I had a toddler in tow (more of what the toddler would do than harm to the kid). For adults and older children the house is well suited to entertain and find a quiet space all the same time. Would stay here again. Highly recommend for family reunion, large group of friends traveling together or large family groups.
Thank you for the nice review, Melissa. To address the matter of the inside security cameras, I of course completely respect the privacy of my guests and they are turned off for the entirety of the stay. Your point is well taken, and so now I or my representative unplug the two cameras (one each in the kitchen and the living room, none in the rest of the house) at the beginning of my guests’ stay so there are no such concerns. I enjoyed having you and your group and would welcome you to stay again.
Three generations filled the house to capacity to celebrate birthdays. The house absorbed all of us nicely. The kitchen is fully stocked and well organized. We would have liked more furniture in the living room for a group our size. Kids loved the pool. Good house overall. We were happy with our choice.
Mike, It was great to have your group celebrate all their milestones at Montedulce. Thank you for staying and I hope to welcome some or all of you again in the future! Best, Charlie
