Overview

About the property

Great room, expansive decks, 3 bedroom, 2 full baths, outdoor shower, sleeps 6.

This unique two-acre property, with heated swimming pool, looks out on the beautiful Russian River Valley vineyards and the never-ending Western panorama. Only minutes from award winning food and shopping in downtown Healdsburg, its within easy walking or bicycling distance of tasting rooms at J, Rodney Strong and other acclaimed Sonoma wineries.

This elegantly appointed, remodeled, 3-bedroom, 2-bath (+ heated outdoor shower), luxury cottage overlooks an exquisite new 40-foot, heated pool (see heating rates) . Gracefully spaced steps span the entire front of the pool so you can lounge in shallow water enjoying a drink, reading, or simply admiring the view. On the grounds, a wooden bridge takes you across a winter creek to native California foliage. Enhance your enjoyment by playing outdoor Foosball on the deck or classic French Pentaque on the court nestled between vineyard and pool. After exploring the wineries, wind down by the fireplace. A sophisticated retreat for families and friends.

Enter property through our Malbec vineyard : Young, exclusive vineyard of 156 vines frame the entrance to our special home. Pear, apricot, fig, pomegranate, and walnut trees grace the two acre expanse. Indigenous, native oak trees circle the property, with six heads of free range calves across the creek on neighbor's land.

Well Water: The cottage's water supply is filtered well water (as most of the house are in Healdsburg). At times there might be a slight odor. It is perfectly safe to for drinking, cooking, showering.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I stayed last winter for one night with my friend. We went into town for dinner

(Healdsburg Hotel) and had a great fire in the fireplace that night when we got

back. The view of the pool and vineyard view is amazing. Everything is tasteful,

comfortable and clean. Great accommodations for two or a whole group.

A SLICE OF HEAVEN ON EARTH!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing setting! House is so warm and inviting. Perfect wine country experience, including roosters crowing, cows mooing and the evening tree frog symphonies, not to mention the view and sunsets! The pool was perfect and the outdoor shower was wonderful!!! Doesn't get better than this! Being here from Georgia in August was great--weather was so refreshing, cool, crisp mornings, daytime the pool was inviting, hot with no humidity, and evenings, after cocktails and dinner on the deck we even had a fire in the fireplace. We love Healdsburg and had lunch in town, but stayed home at night to enjoy our view. Nilus is a great host! I swiped some lavender from his garden to make a sachet. We will return for sure!

Fun stay in the winelands...

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at Vineyard Vista cottage. Everything was clean and neat. The heated pool was great and the home had everything we needed. To wake up with the cows and rooster was great. We had a real farm feel to our vacation. Very central location. Wish we could have parked closer to the cottage. Felt dark at night where we had to park. Some better lighting between parking spot and cottage would help. Also, small vineyard right on property is unkept and had us worry about what the cottage would look like. Luckily the cottage was neat and well kept. Overall we had a good time...

Great place to stay !!!

  • 5 of 5

Communication was excellent with Nilus. The on-line photos were accurate and the house was very clean with all the necessary items. The pool was beautiful and very well maintained without the smell of chemicals. We were six and the outside shower is a pleasant way to make it easy when getting ready for an evening out. We had a fun time playing crochet in the yard behind the house. We only had one full day to enjoy the house and were sad to leave. I would definitely stay again.

A Relaxing Retreat

  • 5 of 5

I spent a long weekend in this beautiful cottage with my husband and 3 adult kids. We had a relaxing time hanging out in the pool, BBQing on the porch and chilling out watching movies. We enjoyed eating indoors and out, and cooking in the well-equipped kitchen. This house is a short drive into Healdsburg and to many wineries. Our host was very helpful with advice on what to do and where to eat, making our weekend a real pleasure. Thank you!
