About the property

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.

Santa Rosa Art Deco Villa we return again!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have spent 4 years renting from Aurora. We spend a solid 4-5 weeks every winter as well as occasional short visits. We are wine lovers and the location allows us easy access to Sonoma and Napa wine country as well as short trips for nature outings, nice restaurants and last but not least, the comforts of home. The "Art Deco Villa" has everything we need to entertain, allowing us to have friends come and stay from other parts of the country. Also, we appreciate the customer service that Aurora has become like a second home to us. Thank you Aurora

Spacious and Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We immediately felt at home, thanks to the warm hospitality of Aurora and her gifts of wine, fruit and fresh, free-range eggs from a neighbor's hens! The house is comfortable for two, a family, or several couples and is centrally-located for taking trips to Napa, Sonoma, and the beautiful ocean views of Bodega Bay. With many excellent restaurants available in the area, we still couldn't resist having a couple meals in the backyard. Close to everything Santa Rosa has to offer, yet private and quiet with surprising sightings of deer and wild turkeys! We would definitely stay here again on a return visit.

Old and run down

  • 1 of 5

The pictures online must have been taken 10 years ago because they sure don't match the look of the house now. It looks old and rundown . We were disappointed. The place was clean and the beds were comfortable although the pillows were flat and useless. We could only get one burner on the stove to work and the pots and pans look like they came from a yard sale. We ran out of propane and had to call twice to get the tanks filled. The patio off the second floor master bedroom didn't have any furniture on it. the picture online showed Furniture . so it was essentially useless. I wouldn't say that the shape of the house ruined our vacation but it certainly took something away from it I do not recommend this house

Art Deco Villa: comfortable, spacious, as advertized

  • 5 of 5

My family rented this house for a week in Aug, 2017. Overall, we liked the house very much.

On the plus side:

swimming pool is great, kept very clean & free from leaves, debris; solar heated pool water worked well; backyard propane BBQ: very nice, we used it almost every day; air conditioning (heat pump) worked well; two car garage plus parking for 2 more cars in driveway worked for us; Wi-Fi suited everyone (no complaints from the 20-somethings); room layout is well suited to large group (8 adults, in our case); backyard hot tub was well attended by the younger folks in the family; quiet neighborhood; located near Safeway market and shopping.

On the down side:

the house is showing its age in a few spots; kitchen is a bit small but adequate.

Overall, this house was pretty much what we expected and we consider it a good value. We will consider returning here next summer.

Great rental. Great Location. Great Owner.

  • 5 of 5

Aurora did an outstanding job welcoming our group to Sonoma County including going above and beyond with a cake and wine for our celebration. The entire property was excellent and allowed us to feel as though we were at home. The patio space, pool, and hot tub were also great add-ons to the experience; allowing us to enjoy the excellent weather. The owner had the right amenities to make us feel as though we were at home, thinking of everything, the entire time - including a cooler for our travels around wine country. Space was excellent for three couples to each have a bathroom and full bedroom. We will be back!

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.

Other Activities: Shopping, Kayaking, Basketball Court, Hot Air Ballooning, Miniature Golf, Health/Beauty Spa
