Santa Rosa House Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom-sleeps 2, 1 full bath, kitchen

This rental is located on 8 acres in the scenic hills above Santa Rosa. Our rental is designed for couples who want a little luxury in a country setting. Although we are in the country, you are only minutes away from shops and fine restaurants. Serene and beautiful mountain views can be seen from the balcony and all the windows. Wake up to a view of mountains and the song of the numerous birds that live in our fields. The road begins and ends in two regional parks that are wonderful for hiking or mountain biking.

We are in the Sonoma Valley Wine Region, also known as the Valley of the Moon. You will understand why if you are here to see the lovely moon rise from the balcony. The valley begins at the base our road (HWY 12) and ends 16.5 miles later at the town of Sonoma.

Here is a detailed layout: The rental has a separate entrance. The door connecting the rental to the main house has been sealed off and sound-proofing installed. Your private entrance is through the drive-through carport. You have your own kitchen, which is located downstairs as you enter into a small hall. The kitchen was installed 3 years ago with new appliances. It has a stove, sink, dishwasher and refrigerator. It is stocked with silverware, pots and pans, and dishware.

Stairs lead to the upper level and largest area. There is a small dining room just at the top. A door to the right leads to a master suite. You enter into a hallway with built-in bookcases. The bedroom area to the immediate right is about 20’ x 25’ with high wooden ceilings. The sitting area is by the bay windows in front of the bed. There are 2 chairs and a table here for you to enjoy the view of the mountains and valley. This room also has a gas fireplace and flat screen TV.

A balcony runs the length of the unit and has 2 sliding doors. There is a small table with 2 chairs here so you can enjoy your morning coffee. The balcony faces east and can be seen in the photos (double rainbow in winter). There is a bar sink, mini fridge, and microwave in the hall next to the balcony.

A large walk-in closet is between the bed area and the bathroom. The bathroom is extremely large and also has high wooden ceilings. We have a 2 person Jacuzzi, walk in shower, and double sinks. My husband is a remodeling contractor so the detail work is high end in the California craftsman style. All the cabinetry and built-ins have been made in his wood shop.

About Kathy and Dave

I have lived in Santa Rosa for the last twenty five years. We left San Francisco to build our home and studio near Hood State Park. We have raised our two children here and become part of this unique community. During this time I have come to appreciate the extraordinary beauty of this area from painting landscapes in the vineyards and park lands.

Guestbook comments from the owner

On a scale of 1-5, I would give this place a 6. It is immaculately clean, beautifully decorated, and very cozy. It is sunny, private and peaceful; away from the hustle and bustle, yet within a couple of miles from a convenience store (good thing because I ran out of deodorant!). You will enjoy waking up to the morning sunlight and the birds singing outside. You can sit with your coffee by the bay window in super comfortable chairs admiring the spectacular view, or watch the marvelous sunset with a glass of vino. Hotels in the area don’t stand a chance in comparison. There are simply no hotel rooms that will provide the amenities this place has at such a reasonable price. For wine lovers, it is the perfect place to stay; equidistant to vineyards in the southern part of Sonoma as well as northern Sonoma. Pinot Noir fans, this is your spot. Kathy is super sweet and a wonderful hostess. (Sammy will greet you upon arrival; the nicest yellow lab you’ll ever meet.). I highly recommend this place and look forward to returning one day.

Beautiful retreat in Sonoma Wine Country

  • 5 of 5

We had a great 4-day getaway to Sonoma Wine Country, and this rental was one of the highlights. See that bay window and upper deck in the picture? That is your space. BEAUTIFUL view. It was a great place to retreat after a day of wine tasting and sightseeing. Kathy and Dave are very nice. Property is up in the hills, yet conveniently located near Santa Rosa with all its amenities (including Trader Joes, Whole Foods, etc.). You can also hop onto Calistoga Road near your lodgings and be in Napa Valley in a few minutes. So if you want to visit both Sonoma and Napa areas, this rental is a great choice. We hope to stay here again.

High up in the hills

  • 5 of 5

This property is high up in the hills just east of Santa Rosa. The view is nothing less than spectacular. Kathy left the key in the door off the carport. On the first level is a kitchen well stocked with utensils and appliances but also with the necessary spices, condiments etc. Upstairs is the best part. From the large bedroom/sitting area, you can relax in recliners looking out over the hills. The king size bed is very comfortable. Behind the bedroom is a huge walk in closet that is reached by a hall on both sides of the property. The bathroom is behind that and features a deep jacuzzi tub and a huge walk in shower along with double sinks. The design is impeccable, the decor perfect and the condition and cleanliness is all we could have hoped for. We met Kathy while we were there and she gave us tips on the local area including the State Park that is at the top of the hill. Wear you hiking boots and take water if you go as it is as rugged as it is beautiful. Kathy did her best to make our visit relaxing and carefree and she succeeded beyond measure. We were there for only a couple of days but we will be back again for a longer stay. Thanks Kathy

Beautiful views and wonderful accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the views from the master bedroom windows each morning and evening. Even though we spent most of the days in Napa Valley or Sonoma Valley wine country, we enjoyed coming back to this lovely and well-equipped rental property for dinner each evening. The kitchen was stocked better than most rental properties and the bedroom/bathroom linens were exceptional. Thanks for a great stay!
