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 a great property if you are looking to stay in the heart of Santa Rosa. The 5 of us slept comfortably. This was most well stocked rental of any property we have rented. The owner was very easy to work with. The property was very clean and we enjoyed our stay. Thank you!
We had three couples stay. Plenty of room for everyone. Kitchen has anything you need for cooking. Property is very well kept and beautiful. Great location to wine country. Sonoma County, NAPA, Plus only a little over an hour from SFO
This was a fun place for a girl's get away weekend. Aurora was so easy to work with. She gave a wonderful recommendation for dinner, had a bottle of wine in the refrigerator to welcome us, and even had a birthday cake waiting for our celebration. The house is very retro, which adds to the charm, has comfortable beds, plenty of room to relax, and is in a good location for jumping on the highway to explore wine country. Only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because some electrical outlets don't work, so we woke up with dead phones a few times. There is also no door on one of the bathrooms which makes it very awkward. However, that little detail did provide moments of comedy relief. Overall, a great place to stay while enjoying beautiful Sonoma wine country.
The house was spacious, with everything stocked beyond our expectations. Loved the hot tub, and beds very comfortable. The location of the house was great ,close to a lot of things we wanted to do. Would highly recommend Aurora's vrbo. We had a great time despite rain every day. Would recommend going earlier in October.
We loved the house! It was very spacious, comfortable and conveient to restaurants and to several wineries. We would highly recommend this property!
PERFECT place to stay! Upon arriving, we got to met the owner Aurora. She was very nice and made us feel at home. How sweet too that she left us a bottle of wine to start our stay and some nectarines to snack on. This house fit 3 couples wonderfully. We would eat breakfast, then visit wine country each day and ended up back at the house late afternoon to relax for the evening. Room for everything and everyone. Sitting room, dining area, living room (with television, which we didn't watch as this was a getaway and wanted to spend quality time with family). Much of the time we sat outside either in lounge chairs or at the patio table n chairs. We really enjoyed the pool, the hot tub, cooking meals in a nice and completely stocked kitchen, and also loved using the charcoal grill (a big gas grill was available as well). The backyard was full of beautiful flowers and plants and kept very nice. Everything was very clean when we got there. Very comfortable beds and linens. Bathrooms were well-stocked with towels, t.p., kleenex, shampoo, creme rinse, and lotion. A Safeway store was not too far away. Wineries not far really either. We also took a drive one day along the pacific ocean and to see the redwood trees. Neat experience. LOVED EVERY BIT OF THIS BUCKET LIST VACATION!!! If we ever come back to the area, would definitely stay here again :-)
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.
