My husband and I moved to Santa Rosa, in 2002, and immediately fell in love with this house. We enjoy being right in the middle of wine country, with all its nature and beauty. We began raising our kids here and chose the home because of all the nature around us, its proximity to the beach and Annadel park reserve, San Francisco and of course very easy access to all of the regions beautiful wine country. We decided to keep this lovely home, and our goal is to make it wonderful for your stay!!! This is why I strive for ONLY FIVE STAR REVIEWS!!!!!
Lisa purchased this estate in 2002
The location of this home is perfect because it is close to the amenities of a city, and also right in the heart wine country. We are five minutes from the first winery, (Ledson), and five minutes from my favorite locally supplied market (Olivers). I love the privacy and views this home offers!
“We had such a wonderful time during our stay for the Levi's Gran Fondo cycling event. The house is amazing and the views are incredible. 5 star accommodations and our only regret is that we could not stay longer. This place books quickly for a reason as its one of the best places available. Hope to stay here again in the future if we come back to Santa Rosa.”
Host was very accommodating. House was perfect size for family. highly recommended
We just finished a 5 night stay at Lisa's home. I can not say enough about our stay here. I surprised my husband with a trip to wine country for his birthday. We wanted a house, instead of a hotel, where we could cook some of our own meals and just relax. My criteria in a home was a great kitchen, hot tub, and central location. This house fit the bill perfectly. Being a VRBO and Airbnb host myself, I have pretty high standards!
The kitchen is amazing and stocked with more than you will need. There are numerous outdoor spaces to enjoy, and the weather was perfect for using the hot tub at the end of the day. The beds and linens were comfortable, and the master suite was great.
I was initially hesitant to stay in the city of Santa Rosa as I thought staying in town would take away from the wine "country" experience. But in this house you actually feel like you are in the country. There are tons of mature trees all around the property and views of the mountains. From some views you can't even tell that you have neighbors.
We were greeted by Kim when we arrived and she went over all the essentials and had a nice chilled bottle of wine waiting for us. Everything you need to know is listed in the house manual, along with tons of information about the neighborhood, and surrounding wine regions. We did not have any issues during our stay but if we did Lisa and Kim were just a call or text away.
Regardless of which wine regions you are looking to explore this house is in a great location. We drove to the Napa region on 2 different days and took 2 different routes and it was beautiful, especially with the fall colors.
There are so many small towns offering many things to do in this region. We didn't have nearly enough time to do half of the things we wanted to do. Literally across the street from the house is the entrance to a park, which leads to the larger State Park. Great for walks, hikes, bike riding etc.
There was initially suppose to be 6 adults but ended up being only 4 of us and there was plenty of room. We easily could have had 4 more people and there still would be enough room!
We will definitely be back and stay here again and explore even more of the region. Would recommend for mature groups, families, couples, girls weekends.
Thanks again Lisa and Kim, we had a wonderful time!
Enjoyed staying there, and wish our trip could have been longer!!!
My family and I truly enjoyed being at this beautiful Santa Rosa home. It is a comfortable yet spacious home which allowed our whole group to spread out. The kitchen was stellar! We loved and used all of the outdoor areas...patios, deck, grill, hot tub and play set!
The home's proximity to everything we needed was perfect as well.
We created some wonderful memories and we THANK YOU!!!!!
The house was terrific and the location was perfect !
Lisa was so helpful and provided me with great recommendations for some of her favorite places.
I couldn't have asked for a better place for our family to stay as we enjoyed an exciting week leading up to a spectacular wedding (son's) at Kunde winery.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and had time to relax at this great home also.
Each morning we took advantage of the great walking trails/paths at Spring Lake Park and Howarth Park.
After long days of pre-wedding festivities, we were able to gather and take advantage of this spacious, beautiful home with great views from the deck and great soaks in the hot tub!
We would love to return and are already discussing the next trip.
Thanks Lisa !
We thoroughly enjoyed our time in this lovely home. It's a perfect set up for 8 people in a gorgeous setting. It was close to several amazing wineries, beautiful views and wild life..we saw wild turkeys and deer in the backyard. :) I highly recommend it!
This luxury, wine country home is next to Numerous wineries just 5 minutes away, including Ledson, and Kunde, Chateau Sovereign, and Paradise Ridge. It is close to Glen Ellen, and Kenwood, giving you access to even more amazing restaurants and wineries. There are several restaurants, and a starbucks within less than a 1-mile walk. We are only 25 minutes from Bodega Bay, and an hour from San Francisco. Use this home as your headquarters to Napa, Healdsburg or Calistoga, each of which would be less than a 45 minute drive from this house.
