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!

All we wanted and more!

  • 5 of 5

The Vineyard Vista property was absolutely gorgeous. We spent most of our time lounging on the expansive deck and swimming in the heated pool (extra charge to heat) during our stay but we did leave a couple of times to wine taste at J Vineyards and Rodney Strong which were literally across the street, and to enjoy downtown Healdsburg which was about 3 miles away.

All that we needed for dining and entertaining was available in the kitchen, the beds were comfortable and quiet, and we just melted into the sofas in the living room.

Nilus was very responsive and helpful while booking his property and there was not anything more we could have wanted during our stay.

This will definitely be our go-to property when we visit Healdsburg again!

Second stay at this lovely property

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time I've stayed at this property for the weekend. Well located in the midst of beautiful vineyards and close to Healdsburg. I especially love the front and back outdoor spaces, and we enjoyed the wood-burning fireplace when it was cold. Definitely recommend this spot.

Convenient location, great pool, and very clean!

  • 5 of 5

Less than 10 minutes from downtown Healdsburg, three bedrooms, all very neat and tidy. Our 11-yr old son loved the pool, fussball, and bocce. We loved the great bike riding right outside the front door.

The perfect place to get away and completely unwind...

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with three other friends and we couldn't have been more happy with the location and the homes amenities...everything was perfect for cooking, enjoying, and relaxing by the fireplace in the evenings. The home is situated nicely for visiting some amazing Wineries in the area including a short walk to the one across the street. You get an absolute secluded feeling, but you're only minutes from downtown Healdsburg, which is one of the most amazing small towns we have here in California.

Thank you so much Nilus and Jennifer for opening your home up, very much looking forward to returning here in the near future!

Just Awsome!!

  • 5 of 5

This was an ideal setting to our last visit to Healdsburg. The property offers everything one expects of a very well appointed country home. A very comfortable interior, awesome pool and grounds and an ideal location to visit our favorite wineries in the Sonoma Wine Region. We highly recommend it for groups of friends or families with children. It doesn’t get much better than this. We definitely will visit again.

Just Awesome!!
