Overview

Sonoma County House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

**The calendar is always kept current**

Syrah House is a very large 2 bedroom 2 1/2 bath two-story contemporary home that comfortably sleeps four. Vines frame the entryway and wind around the covered porch, inviting you to step inside. This first floor features living room, dining room, chef's kitchen, 1/2 bathroom, master bedroom and full bathroom.

The master bedroom is a 400-square-foot room with a comfortable European King Bed and gorgeous bed linens. The sage green walls are accented by neutral toned window shutters that look out to lovely trees and porch railings laced with vines, filling the room with subdued natural light. There is a large HD Flat screen TV along with a seating area, table and a large walk-in closet. The en-suite bathroom has a polished tile vanity and stone tile floors, and a large tile stall shower for two with dual shower heads. A private exit door leads from the bedroom to the rear yard and patio with its rose-covered fences, wide lawns and fruit trees Hot Tub and Outdoor Patio Area.

Cooks will love the spacious kitchen with plentiful counter space and preparation areas. Equipped with a Wolf gas range, double ovens, large sinks and a walk-in pantry, it has absolutely everything you need to prepare a wonderful meal.

The dining room, with its open plan, can easily accommodate four guests at the carved rectangular table. Gather some of the bounty of the region for your meal as you explore wine country. Sonoma Valley has world-renown locally grown produce, farm-raised meats and artisan cheeses, olive oils and, naturally, great wines—all available at our nearby Sonoma Market.

Up a broad staircase is the second level, a light-filled expanse with vaulted ceilings, an elegant yet more playful, casual feel. A media and recreation room features a big-screen TV/DVD/gaming center concealed in an armoire and two couches for comfortable viewing. A section of the upper floor is devoted to more active exercise, with a jogging machine, a Foosball tabletop and plenty of built-in counter and bookcase space where you can log onto the Internet. Wi-Fi is available throughout the house.

There is another generous bedroom on this floor with a California king bed, along with a full bathroom. You’ll enjoy the finest bedding with luxurious mattresses and linens that will enfold you in soothing comfort. The bedroom looks out to serene views of trees in brilliant shades of green with the happy song of the chattering birds in the daytime and the relaxing sounds of the water fountain in the center courtyard at night.

The eco-friendly landscaping blends with heritage trees that surround the property to create a private setting. Step outside and experience the special feel that each day brings.

Michael Marino purchased this house in 1999

Why Michael Marino chose Sonoma County

The Wine Country has a lot to offer but when it comes to where we wanted to buy the decision was easy, Sonoma Valley is the best. Hands down!

What makes this house unique

One of the best benefits of the rental is it's size. It's larger then most 2 bedroom houses out there. It's 2700 sq feet and is very private. The location is also a plus, only 5 minutes to the downtown plaza and 5 minutes to the wineries.

Nice but needs some mosquitos control

We enjoyed our stay but could not enjoy the outside area as mosquitos were so bad.

The house worked perfectly for our needs for this trip to wine country.

  • 5 of 5

We loved that this house provided two king bedrooms to allow for two couples to stay and be very comfortable without trying to figure out who had to have the smaller bed/room. We loved the hot tub and although we had a minor clitch with the hot tub, Michael responded to our calls very quickly and got the matters taken care of very efficiently. Everything we needed was at the house and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thank you!

Great thanksgiving stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 nights, up on our arrival the heating had gone out and it was cold in the house and Mike had mentioned the problem with the heater. They had supplied heaters for the bed rooms, which were very comfortable, but the other ones in the sitting areas were not doing there job.As soon as we called about the problem we had heaters and wine. They were very accommodating. The house is very nicely furnished and extremely comfortable. I have no problem recommending this property, they are nice to work with. Becky from Dallas

Lovely home in Sonoma!

  • 4 of 5

The home looked just like the pictures - well appointed, cozy, comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook, great BBQ outside for grilling. Plenty of linens for both bedroom and bathroom needs and hot tub. Hot tub fits 4 people fairly snug, but a good one. Loved the outdoor dining table with the outdoor chandelier overhead - made for a great outdoor dining experience and we lingered a long time at that table enjoying our company. The property was a short 5 minute drive to the Sonoma square, and a short 2 minute drive to gas, ice, drinks, etc. There are two other houses on the property behind the gate, so if you are looking for complete isolation this might not be the place for you. Our home shared a backyard gate with another home that was like a lock off garage property - I believe our roofs were connected. But we didn't have any issues with noise or anything from others, I think the detached house next door was the only other one rented besides ours that weekend.

WoW

  • 5 of 5

The home is very comfortable and beautifully decorated. We were 2 couples with plenty of room. I thought it was very nice touch that the owner met us to show us around the property. We would always stay here when we come to Sonoma.
