Overview

Sonoma County 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.

The BEST

  • 5 of 5

Accommodations were spot on. Immaculate. Roomy. Comfortable with premium bedding, linens and everything we could have needed. The views from the bedroom recliners and deck were spectacular.

Kathy is an accommodating host. This rental is a must when visiting California's wine country!

Perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed only two nights - but I wish we would have planned for more! Everything is exactly as the photos depict - however, one thing the photos didn't show was the welcoming feeling you get when you arrive! Kathy and Dave are perfect hosts :-)

The apt was clean, well maintained, and was stocked with everything we needed. I have been sharing this rental with everyone I know and encouraging them to check it out if ever in the Santa Rosa area!

Breathtakingly beautiful!!!!! A must stay!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at quite a few places through Vrbo/Homeaway, and this one beats them all! The views are gorgeous, the home is lovely, and Kathy could not be any more hospitable. Everything was clean, comfortable, and well thought out. I really appreciated the nice shampoos, soaps, lotions, and well stocked kitchen. Kathy gave us a bottle of wine the day our car was involved in an accident and was ready to do whatever was needed to accommodate us and also allowed me to use her washer and dryer. So very sweet!!!!! We also enjoyed being greeted by Sam (their dog) each day. Too sitting on the deck watching the deer is always a treat for us.

We hope we can return soon. If you go here....you will not regret it!

Family visit

  • 5 of 5

My adult daughter, my ten year old niece, and I had a wonderful time! The owner was available and helpful, yet we were also offered complete privacy. The rental is located near the top of a mountain, and the views are stunning. Everything you could ever want is included, and all is clean, modern, and inviting.

Thank you again, Kathy, for being SO kind and welcoming.

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property! Plan some time just to relax at the property. The views are soul enriching. We were busy much of our time and feel like we missed a big opportunity to enjoy tbe home itself. I took some morning walks which felt like reconnecting with nature. The home is wonderful too, finished with real wood that matches throughout. Pair of chairs at a bay window are great for watching either the sun rise or set on the hills. The owners are friendly and go out of their way to help and provide , plus you are greeted by Sammy, their golden lab. It was difficult to leave because it felt like home. Thank You Kathy & Dave
