Overview

Healdsburg House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, den, sleeps 6

Step into this beautifully updated mid-century modern and enjoy the beautiful garden, the serenity, and the attention to detail that anticipates your every need.

Use this as your luxurious home away from home. Venture out to enjoy the farm fresh flavors of Healdsburg Plaza's many top rated restaurants and local organic markets. Cook up a storm in the HUGE fully stocked kitchen.

Expand your knowledge of Sonoma's phenomenal wines. Healdsburg is where three well known appellations meet - Russian River, famous for big rich Pinot Noir's, Dry Creek Valley, known for Zinfandels, and Alexander Valley, for its high elevation Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah, and all three for superb Chardonnay. Enjoy this magical place with your family and friends, sharing wonderful meals and starlight evenings. Then sink into fabulous bedding in complete peace and quiet until breakfast and another day in paradise.

A bit of planning is called for if you are to explore dozens of nearby wineries and still have time for cycling, hiking, shopping, visiting the Sonoma coast, and enjoying all the wonderful things Sonoma has to offer. Uber has arrived, adding another option to wine-country exploring!

More about our Garden: Peaceful, private, large and sun-filled, with landscape that creates zen-like tranquility. An amazing surprise in the heart of town, handy to all the town square has to offer (restaurants, shops, farmers market, gourmet and organic grocery stores, wine tasting), you feel the peace of total privacy once you step into the garden. With views to enjoy you can wander into the year-round herb garden, or pick your own sun-ripened cherry tomatoes, to supplement your cooking activities. Help yourself to Meyer lemons and oranges, plums in season, and watch the walnut tree ripen! Seasonal highlights change, but this garden is beautiful all year long!

Am I Inside or Out: California living at its best, the house flows onto the decks and into the garden. The decks are designed to provide dappled shade, comfortable even in the summer sunshine. The French doors pull you into the garden, the house seamlessly flows outside, making the living and entertaining space enormous. Inside feels like a stylish loft - open, with comfy down-filled sofas to relax in with a book and glass of wine. Beautiful antiques, Persian carpets on the dark hardwood floors, and stylish ice-blue walls, make you want to stay forever. Bring your i-Phone and fill the house with the music that you love the most. Dimmer switches throughout and beautiful lighting lets you to set the mood that you want. A real wood-burning fireplace in the living room banishes any cool evenings, while you watch a movie on Netflix, check out the full sports spectrum on Direct TV or flip through cook-books planning tomorrow's gourmet adventure.

Bedroom Choices/Kitchen Delight: Bedrooms: Hate to decide who gets the nice bedroom, and who doesn't? This house is perfect! It has two master suites and a third bedroom with a beautiful full bathroom right across the hall! Three couples can enjoy total privacy and each be in love with their own room.

Kitchen: The heart of any home, ours is a gourmet entertainer's dream, Gas range (with grill), two huge sinks, loads of counter space-- For us, cooking is a group activity-- plenty of room for all who what to pitch in! For the spectators, bar stools overlook the action! Steps to the covered barbeque area, outside dining table and beautiful indoor dining. Everything you need is at hand- from new Calphalon pots and pans, to Rosenthal china (service for 12), cloth napkins, beautiful serving dishes, silver candle-sticks and more. A chef's dream, the perfect place to create delicious meals together to accompany the spectacular wines you've just discovered.

This Healdsburg home is magical - romantic, serene, beautiful surroundings both inside and out. Classic California easy living with a house that opens to the private garden! Use our yoga mats to start the day with yoga on the decks and watch the sun rise. End the day with a glass of wine looking at the golden sun set over a beautiful open sky. In-between go exploring, on foot, by bicycle, or by car - you'll be occupied with restaurants, tasting-rooms and shops, but it takes only minutes to be in the country-side, with endless choices of country roads to find and follow! The night-sky is full of stars, so tuck yourself into the hot-tub and star-gaze in a way that simply isn't possible in a city! If you want to combine rest and exercise - it is so easy, take the bikes for a ride, use our racquets to play tennis at Giorgi Park or take a hike at nearby Healdsburg Ridge Open Space Preserve.

Calling all cyclists!

Healdsburg is made for cyclists of all levels! We have six bicycles that you can use, there are two rental shops in town, or if you are elite cyclists, bring your own! You can mosey along roads that follow the valley floor (head out West Dry Creek Road and return on Dry Creek Road), or you can go for longer cycles, say up to Geyserville, or use our maps to find the super challenging hills! If the concept of exercise is better than the reality, cycle to Costeaux Bakery for an amazing breakfast (this side of the Plaza), or cycle to one of the beautiful nearby wineries for a picnic!

Amazing restaurants and wineries! Check them out, wonderful wines from Russian River Valley, Dry Creek Valley, Alexander Valley, Anderson Valley, Chalk Hill, Knights Valley, Napa Valley and Mendocino are all a beautiful drive away.... you get the picture! You can stroll around town to world-class restaurants. Some of our favorites include: Barn Diva (enjoy dining in the garden or in the elegant but casual farm-table restaurant), Bravas - a happening back garden of Spanish tapas, Scopa (Italian), The Shed - for breakfast, lunch or dinner, and Willi's Seafood (small plates, very fun), If it is named chefs you are looking for, visit Charlie Palmer's Dry Creek Kitchen, Valette, or the much anticipated Single Thread! If you want to venture further afield - Geyserville just up the road is home to Diavolo (they make their own sausage, pizzas.....yum), or Catelli's or Rustic - all three have wonderful patios and delicious food. Take the 128 over the top to Napa and visit the CIA (Culinary Institute of America) or many other amazing restaurants for lunch or dinner. We could go on, there are more - these are our favorites so far!

Heaven in Healdsburg

  • 5 of 5

The photos hardly do justice to this beautiful, stylish and immaculate home. I'd rate higher than 5 stars if I could. This has been our 4th rental to this very comfortable and relaxing Healdsburg property. It’s both close to town and outdoor activities. Whether visiting vineyards, walking to town to explore the shops and restaurants, or biking the nearby terrain, this beautifully appointed and well maintained home is a jewel. There's an herb garden and gourmet kitchen for the creative chef, the scent of lavender and rosemary on the shaded patio, as well as landscaping that's a feast for the eyes. The owners have thoughtfully provided every creature comfort with style and charm. We can't wait to return next year.

Luxury and Amenities!!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, our family of 5 had a wonderful 4 day stay at this home! Barbara was so gracious and welcoming. The pictures of the house can not convey the warm atmosphere and luxury appointments. Every inch is maintained immaculately and every convenience was thought of (great sheets, fluffy robes, wood for the fireplace, and a kitchen that was so much fun). Barbara invited us to enjoy the bountiful cherry tomato plants on the deck, what a treat with our afternoon glass of wine. We were the envy of everyone we rode by on the bikes that were at our disposal. the convenience to town whether walking or biking can't be beat. Thank you for sharing your home!!

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home, and great location! We enjoyed the back patio / outdoor kitchen area, and the house was easy walking distance (~15min) to the square downtown. Quiet neighborhood, great amenities and we will most likely be back on our next trip to Healdsburg! House manager was knowledgeable and helpful.

40th wedding celebration/vacation perfection!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two adult children and their spouses, and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely home. We toured wineries everyday, drove to the bay, took a bike tour and visited the redwoods. The location was central to everything, and the lovely home and yard allowed us to enjoy morning coffee on our own schedules, gave us plenty of space, and we could relax in the evening when we were too tired to go out. The house had everything we needed, and it was such a help when Barbara met us there to go through the house. Although we only used the bikes twice it was great to have them available. We encountered one problem with the water heater but a quick call to Barbara solved the problem. We would love to go back and stay at the same place again and have some friends who would love to go along on the next trip. Certainly we would not want to stay anyplace else. THIS house and yard made the entire trip absolutely amazing! Thank you for allowing to use your piece of paradise (although our Florida Panhandle beaches aren't bad!)

Better than expected

  • 5 of 5

we've stayed at Healdsburg's leading hotels. this time we decided to try a house. it'll be tough to go back to a hotel. there were four of us, two couples. this house is better than you expect. the large kitchen/great room is great for cooking and visiting. the bedrooms are well sized, especially the master suite (that we lucked-out and got). there is nothing negative about this listing. my wife and i were already lamenting the fact that we're not there right now while we view our photos. it's a stunning residence. Barbara, the house manager, is great. she sets you up. leaves you alone, but is there ready to answer any questions (we only had two). let me clear up one thing: i read in some of the reviews that it's "a close walk into Healdsburg." this house is in Healdsburg, it's just not on the square which is where the hotels, restaurants, tasting rooms, etc. are located. this house is within an easy walk to all this. it's about eight blocks from the square. we will be back. highly recommended!

Loved the House!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect. It was great for 3 couples. The location was excellent - nice walk into Healdsburg, close to so many wineries. The house was immaculate and had a very well stocked kitchen. The kitchen is a great size for several people to cook in at the same time. The back yard and deck could not have been nicer. Photos and descriptions on the website are accurate. Jamie was so easy to schedule our stay and talk with regarding our dates. Barbara was so gracious and helpful when she met us at the house. We would rent this home again without hesitation. All 6 in our group were very pleased with the house, amenities, and location.

Located in the center of town is our historic Healdsburg Plaza with several different types of tree species, gazebo and water features. Surrounding the plaza are many choice tasting rooms, upscale shopping and superb dining. Enjoy miles of exploring scenic wine country roads and fall head over heels for this wine country community!

Giorgi Park is nearby with basket ball and tennis courts with occasional outdoor events. We have plenty of country roads for bicycling and exploring the area. Healdsburg Golf Course (9 hole), Russian River kayaking and swimming is a short drive away.

Other Activities: W I N E - T A S T I N G & T O U R I N G !!!!

If you're wanting more of a challenge than our Healdsburg City golf course (9-hole), wander further out to the classic Windsor Golf Course, or drive the scenic route along the Russian River to the Sonoma Coast and play the breathtakingly beautiful Northwoods 9-hole course. Once arriving in Bodega Bay enjoy their 18-hole links course. Check to see if your private club has exchange arrangements with the spectacular Mayacama Golf & Country Club near Windsor.
