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.
Thanks so much for the wonderful house! We enjoyed our stay and all the
beautiful flowers only added to our "happiness"!
The wineries were super and all our "new" friends were the perfect hosts!
Thanks again for sharing with us,
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!
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.
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 were two families who had the best long weekend ever in this amazing house! The house made the best base for a fantastic holiday in the Sonoma district. Aurora had left us wine and blueberries, and organized for the neighbor to deliver fresh eggs. We had the most wonderful dinners out on the beautiful patio, and the children lived in the pool. If you ever go to Sonoma, you cannot go wrong with this house. The best recommendations from us!
We had a lovely time in Santa Rosa. The location was perfect for touring wine country. Close to the shops and easy access to all the highways yet so residential and so quiet. I slept good every night!
And the house was absolutely lovely. Clean, spacious, accomodating. We cooked, barbecued, swam in the pool and the hot tub was great att he end of the day.
My husband and I were on the main floor in our little oasis and the rest of our group were upstairs. We could really spread out and enjoy our own space.
Thank you Aurora for everything. It will be on of our favourite places we have stayed and we will treasure our memories.
We enjoyed the house. We were welcomed with fresh organic eggs and wine. We enjoyed grilling and eating on the patio and the taking in the hot tub in the evenings. We felt the house met all of our needs. And we appreciate the quick response from the owner when we had any questions. Everything went very well. Everything was working and was clean. We definitely would recommend to our friends and are looking to come back again.
We enjoyed many of the excellent wineries and restaurants in the area. Loved Café Citi in Kenwood, and wineries i.e. Kunde, Pendleton, Siduri, and Ferrari Carano. We also did find the croissants one block away, excellent.
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.
