Overview

Santa Rosa House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Other (See Description), Sleeps 8

This Art Deco beauty with pool and hot tub has 3 bedrooms, with 3 baths, perfect for 3 couples, or two couples w/children! TWO complete master suites! The lower master has a queen bed, a separate walled off sleeping area with beds for children or an extra guest or two, and a huge wall of windows looking out over the glittering blue pool. The upper master has it's very own HUGE 100% private rooftop sundeck, perfect for sunbathing in walled seclusion. Both masters have private, en-suite bathrooms w/walk-in showers. Smaller third bedroom, perfect for children or couple, has own large bathroom across the hall, with seafoam green Art Deco deep soaking tub/shower combo, and lots of counter space. Tiled Art Deco kitchen with large center island lets you spread out while cooking. Brand new refrigerator w/own icemaker for those cocktails out by the pool. Two large living rooms! Two dining areas, one formal, one breakfast area.

Further Details: House has high chair and porta-crib for our littlest guests. We welcome families!

Lounge around by the gem-like swimming pool with your favorite summer drink in the sunny, green back yard, or spend the evening socializing with friends or family in the brand new hot tub with massage jets. Complete and total privacy in the large backyard, with gas grill/charcoal grill barbecue and dining pavilion, for those sweet summer barbecues by the pool. After a few, you may even be brave enough to drag out the Karaoke Machine!

This private, 2 story villa on a quiet, tranquil lane that backs to large green fields is the perfect oasis to come home to and relax after a full day of wine tasting or exploring. It feels secluded, yet is close to everything: 5 minutes from downtown restaurants and theatres, even closer to major and gourmet grocery stores. In the morning, walk one short block to the ''Cafe De Croissant'' and it's piping hot buttery creations, or a little further to Starbucks.

Or cook up a huge breakfast in this well-stocked modern kitchen.

There are major wine roads in all directions from the house: 10 min. to the south is the verdant Sonoma Valley, with it's lush vineyards and stately old oaks. Stop in at Ledson Winery incredible Gothic castle for a picnic from their deli on their beautiful grounds, take in the serene French chateau at St. Francis Winery, or go underground into the wine caves of Kunde.

Ten min. to the north on Hwy 1 is the quaint town of Healdsburg, with it's charming Victorian square, tasting rooms, shops, Zagat rated restaurants, and the hopping off point for the Dry Creek Valley wine road, with dozens of award winning boutique wineries, and the fabulous gardens out at the villa at Ferrari-Carrano Winery, always worth a visit. Or head NW to Calistoga, the starting point for Napa's famed Silverado Wine Trail.

Relax in this Victorian town's mud baths and sparkling hot springs!

Or head out to the redwoods, only 20 minutes away, and do ''the Loop'': stop in at the last of the free tasting rooms, Korbel Champagne Cellars, and savor gourmet sandwiches under the Redwoods in their outdoor cafe, with a glass of bubbly or your favorite microbrew. Then stop for a leisurely, level stroll at Armstrong Redwoods State Park, easy for non-hikers, and gaze at 350 ft. tall giants along fern-filled streams. After that, it's only about 15 min. to our wild Sonoma Coast, with it's famed coves an bluffs and many beautiful beaches. After a day at the beach, go south, and stop in for wine tasting on the sundeck of Gourmet au Bay, or watch the sun set eating huge fried oysters or other seafood in the picture window of Lucas Wharf Restaurant in Bodega Bay. Turn back in to the little town of Bodega, where Hitchcock's ''The Birds'' was filmed, and if the shops are still open, go antiquing.

Lots of charm and character!

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful and welcoming, with lots of charm and character. There were six of us (all family) and the three bedrooms/three baths were perfect. We enjoyed grilling out and sitting at the outdoor dining area every evening. Very close to town and all the locations we wanted to go.

Relaxing Stay in Sonoma County

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a relaxing week in this lovely home. We were met as we arrived by the owner Aurora and warmly greeted. She provided us with local farm fresh eggs and fruit.

The house is conveniently located not far from the main roads to easily get around wine country. It is located in a quiet neighborhood on top of a hill providing nice views of the surrounding area.

The home is well appointed and well maintained. The kitchen has any item needed to produce large or small meals. The pool area was very nice and we were able to enjoy it after a day of wine tastings.

I would recommend this home to other couples or families visiting this area who need a comfortable place to vacation. Also, Miss Aurora is so sweet and willing to provide assistance when requested.

Great place

  • 4 of 5

This is the first time we have rented from VRBO and we weren't disappointed. The property was just as advertised, there were 4 adults, 1 couple and 2 singles. We found so much room that we never even used. The hot tub seemed to be a little heavy on the chlorine but that is probably because it is covered when not used so if you opened it and turned on the jets a couple minutes before you used it, that would probably help. The eggs and bottle of wine were very much appreciated as well as those wonderful cherries!

Perfect every minute

  • 5 of 5

Our family just spent 2 weeks at this beautiful home. It was very apparent that the owner wanted to make sure a good time was had. A gardener, a pool maintenance man, and a property "manager" were there periodically for any possible problems and general up keep. The garden was beautiful and so was the inside of the house. All the beds were excellent and the furniture was very comfortable. The kitchen was completely outfitted. That was very convenient. A plus: Safeway, Peets Coffee, and a park for the kids were within walking distance. I would certainly return for another vacation. Thank you , Aurora.

Will stay again

  • 5 of 5

Aurora was very attentive and made the reservation, payment, and access all so very simple. I was here for business, but was able to incorporate leisure as well since this is such a relaxing property. The pool and Jacuzzi were awesome additions to the rental. The beds were comfy, the house was clean and the towels were super soft...all the things I love when staying away from home. You will not be disappointed in this property. I will definitely book this property again next year for my stay.

We are in the center of Wine Country, with major wine tasting roads, like Dry Creek and Alexander Valleys, Sonoma Valley, and Napa Valley's Silverado Wine Trail in every direction (hop on the Napa Valley Wine Train!) We are 20 min. from the Redwoods and Russian River for kayaking and canoeing, and 40 min. from the coast. 10 min. from downtown, with it's Wed. Night Market, and 15 min. from Healdsburg and it's Zagat rated restaurants. Safari West is 15 min. from house, and San Fran is less than an hr. away! The mud baths and hot springs of Calistoga, Napa's Victorian spa town, and the ivied walls and iris-filled moats of the famous Chateau Montelena are only 20 minutes away. It's the perfect jumping-off point to experience the best winery tours of both Napa and Sonoma Counties. There is something to do in every direction, but don't forget to relax at the house and pool!

5 min. from downtown Santa Rosa, one hr. north of S.F.
