About the property

Very Large Estate Home Designed for Entertaining. Formal Rooms, Spacious, Light

SONOMA & THE VALLEY OF THE MOON - Sonoma Vacation Rental estate like a country park resting on 2 1/4 acres in the exclusive and historic Spreckels Estate enclave of Sobre Vista. One of the finest Sonoma Vacation Rentals and Sonoma Luxury Rentals and Vacation Homes. Sonoma Vacation Rental in the Valley of the Moon including a grand 6,500 square foot mid-century contemporary home that was built along side the historic 1898 Spreckels Estate tennis court. There is a classic Thomas Church designed swimming pool, a raised grass volleyball court, basketball, horseshoes, croquet, and picnic areas. We always hear, in view of the limited photographs, that the property is so much more than our guests expected. We love it and hope that you will too.

Common Areas: The home features a 40 foot entrance gallery leading to the great room with its 17 foot ceilings and massive stone fireplace. On either side of the great room is the formal dining room and the den with stone fireplace. A large chef's kitchen compliments the morning breakfast room with stone fireplace and overlooks the pool, tennis court and valley views to the east. Through the adjacent billiard room you enter the family room with baby grand piano and 50' flat screen television. The artwork is historic and thought-provoking...cupids and kings, horses and cavaliers, Chinese figurines, allegories, myth and legend.

The Spa Feeling... the 7 Bedrooms & Bathrooms: While the home's interior common areas resemble a country manor or lodge the bedrooms and bathrooms are very modern and feel like a spa. Each of the 7 bedrooms are color coordinated in soft light and dark taupes and have resort quality organic linens, waffles-robes, towels and duvets from Coyuchi. All bedrooms come with custom walnut shelving, flat screen televisions with built-in DVD players, and iPod compatible clock amplifiers. Each of the bathrooms are encased in seagreen limestone and installed with European Lacava counter-top sinks, custom teak shelving and hardware from the Purist Collection. And though our other bathrooms have porcelain soaking tubs, the master bathroom suite is a special and private spa experience with a 'Tea For Two' jetted tub, double headed stall shower, and separate his and her unpacking and dressing areas. Very romantic.

Figs, Family & Friends: The home is big, and at the same time inviting and cozy. The many wood burning stone fireplaces, easy chairs and sofas provide ample opportunity for social settings and peaceful areas to find some time alone. Sobre Vista has many personalities just as the outdoors call for laying out on the lawns, picking figs, plums, apples, blood-oranges, white grapefruit, lemons and peaches or reading around the pool, playing tennis or volleyball and later a family game of croquet or horseshoes. You won't be bored. You and your family and friends will truly enjoy the seamless pleasures of our Sobre Vista Estate. From relaxation and recreation to dining, reading, thinking and just being...your time here will be memorable...a peaceful and entertaining home away from home.

Great home, terrific yard for a big group

  • 5 of 5

We had 14 people and worried that we would be comfortable... forget that concern! This place has 7 fine bedrooms and lots and lots of bathrooms. also has fireplaces from The Game of Thrones. And then walk outside. We played tennis, bocci, horseshoes and swam every day... and it was winter! The kitchen has everything you need , except we could not find place mats. They are very strict on music but that was not a problem for us at all. And lastly the driveway had parking for plenty of vehicles . we would go back.

Wonderful for large group with kids

  • 5 of 5

Our group, which rents a house every year for Memorial Day weekend, thoroughly enjoyed our stay. One great thing about it is that the bedrooms (save the Master, which is bigger and has a larger bathroom) are all roughly the same size with the same features, so nobody gets stuck in a "bad" room which is so often the case with large groups. We had several toddlers/small children in the group, but the house is so large and the common areas so varied that we never felt crammed while indoors. Of course we spent most of the time enjoying the porch, pool, and tennis courts, and we loved that there was a gate between porch and pool if we wanted to keep the little ones from having access. There are several great wineries just a few minutes away, and getting groceries is a snap. And to top if off, it's much closer to San Francisco or Oakland than most houses of this size in Sonoma or Napa counties. Oh, and I should mention that Sufia--the on-site contact--is great and made things super easy. This was one of our favorite Memorial Day houses ever and I highly recommend it!

Way better than the pictures show...

  • 5 of 5

Sobre Vista Resort was the place for my wife's birthday party last week. Best friends arrived from around the country and all were impressed by the grounds and the home in general. Frankly, the pictures do not do the property justice. The home is a large U shape, with bedrooms and bathrooms on the uprights and the kitchen, dining rooms, billiard room, sitting room and so forth in the connector. The common areas are left as they were a half century ago. The fireplace is enormous and a great place in winter to gather and talk over wine. We used the area between the billiard room and kitchen for wine tastings - a great place to do this given the fantastic view. The bedrooms are all modern with extremely comfortable "European feel" mattresses. The kitchen has a Sub Zero refrigerator, two dishwashers, and a gas stove that impressed even my wife who is a chef. The grounds are very nicely kept, and lemon and grapefruit trees provided fresh juice for us. Look: I have several ocean front rentals on the outer banks of NC and know this business... the owners spared no expense and details on this home. You will love it.

Great for large gatherings

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a large family gathering over Labor Day weekend. We were 14 all together. The house is so spacious we never felt crowded. The kitchen has everything you could need, and the bedrooms and bathrooms have been remodeled and are very comfortable. My only complaint is that the house needs a little TLC and one inside bathroom did not have a functioning exhaust fan. The grounds are beautiful, and we happily stayed on the property talking, swimming, playing tennis and BBQ. Plus the owner Olivia and manager Sufia were very nice and helpful. They readily agreed to a late check up :) I will highly recommend this property!

Wonderful House

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this house for a week every August for 4 years. It works wonderfully for our family, ranging in age from 6 to 85 years old. Plenty of space, beautiful grounds with pool and tennis court and jacuzzi, and the house itself is very well appointed with comfortable beds, linens and plenty of towels. I highly recommend the house for big family gatherings or groups where you both want to be together but also want to have space to be alone. Both the owner and the property manager (Sufia) are friendly and very helpful.

4 nights was not enough. What a great place.

  • 5 of 5

Sobre Vista is really easy to find. Sufia, the property manager, was there to greet us and show us around. Sonoma is about 10 min away and has all the stores and restaurants-we found a very good Mexican restaurant called Plaza Tequila on Hwy 12. There were 3 couples, we each had our own wing of the house. The common areas are very well laid out with a piano and a pool table in one area. The kitchen very easily accommodates 3 cooks the outdoor barbecue was clean and well maintained. We spent a lot of time in the pool and Jacuzzi, the tennis court was newly redone-beautiful. There is so much to do on this property and it is also very relaxing. We had fresh picked grapefruit and fresh squeezed blood orange juice for breakfast, and fresh lemon aid in the afternoon (there is a great juicer in the pantry). We played a round of golf in Santa Rosa, nice course very reasonable. Can't wait to go back, maybe for a larger family reunion! Margie Capra, Seattle WA

About Olivia Robertson

The proprietor of the Sobre Vista Resort is San Francisco Real Estate Developer Scott L Robertson. Scott is also the owner and developer of The Regency Center--the largest privately owned Special Events and Concert faciltity in the Bay Area. His daughter, Olivia (pictured), manages the estate.

Why Olivia Robertson chose Sonoma

After searching nearly 20 years the property at Sobre Vista became available. The rest was easy...this niche neighborhood is above and beyond compare to almost any other location in Sonoma County...The Valley of the Moon.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have updated and changed our overnight and rate policies. In Sonoma County recently changed vacation home regulations have tightened up on larger functions and gatherings leading to limitations on guest uses while renting vacation properties. NEW RATES for the 2011 season are as follows:

FREE Fourth Night is at no charge throughout the year. $1950 for Friday/Saturday. $1350 weekdays.

Children three and under do not add to the overall guest limitations. 14 adults overnight...and six additional (non-overnight) guests to share in your activities while on the estate. See you soon. Scott

Sonoma, Sonoma County, Wine Country, California, USA (Near Sonoma Town Square: Wine Tasting, Golf, Hiking, Biking) -- The property is 'gated' at the entry to provide maximum privacy, security and safety at all times. Sonoma generally, and Sobre Vista especially, are very safe environments...still the gates are nice. Mountain View: Beautiful sunrises over the eastern hills rimming the Valley of the Moon can be seen from most of the property. At night, the skyscape explodes with stars and constellations. Our estate is part of the 3000 acre 1898 Speckles Estate. The original main residence compound is just 14 acres and provides wonderful walks among mature trees along with some interesting history. Charley Chaplin and Ronald Reagan played on our tennis court...just as the Speckles Estate itself was once called 'The San Simeon of the North.'

Other Activities: shopping, basketball court, health/beauty spa, horseshoes
