About the property

3 br, 2.5 ba on 3 acres, close to Healdsburg Plaza and great wineries

Just featured by Sonoma Magazine as one of the "16 Stunning Wine Country Vacation Pools."

The Healdsburg Resort House is a 3 acre property located in world famous Alexander Valley, has fantastic views of the vineyards/mountains and has its own hillside vineyard (we will provide a bottle of cabernet sauvignon grown from the hillside vineyard). The house is a great combination of privacy and proximity, with the closest house a quarter mile away, but wonderful downtown Healdsburg only an eight minute drive.

Enjoy a world-class backyard. An "everything you need" deluxe outdoor kitchen, custom pool, large in-ground hot tub, waterfall, firepit, vineyard, expansive kid's play structure and of course great views. The outdoor kitchen is the centerpiece:

* Two Viking BBQs

* Two refrigerators (one for food, one for beverages)

* Freezer

* Dishwasher

* Ice maker

* Oven

* Three burners

* Two sinks

* Warming drawer

* Large islands

* Double sized mosaic tile outdoor dining table will seat 12, has cafe lights strung overhead for evening ambiance.

* After dinner, settle around the large firepit (with automatic starter).

Inside you will find another very well equipped Chef's kitchen (complete with large Viking griddle, 4 large gas burners, large island, wine frig and more). House also has a wood-burning fireplace, great entertainment system (80" 4K HDR TV with DirecTV, Blu-Ray, 7.1 surround sound and selection of over 1,000 movies on demand), huge covered wraparound porch with amazing vineyard views, exercise equipment (treadmill, elliptical trainer) and $3,000 electronic Toto toilets (very addicting). Maintain perfect temperature control with centralized A/C and heat.

As for beds, there are 7 in total (8 if you count the queen size luxury aerobed). The master suite has a king bed, and is located upstairs with its own double-sink full bathroom and separate sitting room. The other bedrooms are downstairs, both with queen beds and direct french door access to the backyard. There is another full bath downstairs plus a half guest bath. There are fold out couches in the upstairs sitting room and downstairs living room. There are also two twin beds in the sunroom off of one of the downstairs bedrooms.

The property is gated and fully fenced with the nearest neighbor a quarter mile away. We look forward to sharing this wonderful place with you.

About Leslie

We are a family of three (including Milly age 11). We have lived in Healdsburg for 14 years and love sharing its wonders with guests from near and far.

Leslie purchased this house in 2003

Why Leslie chose Sonoma County

Healdsburg is a wonderful town with something for everyone. World-class restaurants, diverse wineries, spas, shopping, central plaza that hosts music festivals and weekly outdoor concerts during Summer, gourmet cooking classes and bi-weekly farmer's market May-October. We love that our home is in a country setting among wineries and vineyards, but with convenient access to the center of town in just eight minutes.

What makes this house unique

We can recommend favorite wineries, restaurants, salons, spas or shops, and children's activities if you have kids.

Perfection in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Visiting wine country at harvest time is paradise....vineyards have gorgeous colors and the fall weather is beautiful. But true perfection was staying at this awesome Healdsburg home! Location, location, location! The home and surrounding property are absolutely stunning. Every small detail is thought off--from posted instructions on how to operate outdoor lights, outdoor kitchen, spa, creek fountain and fire pit (yes, the property has all of these amenities) to the movie library and HUGE tv to the charging cables for your phone,ipad in every room! If you like to cook, the home is a foodies heaven--great gourmet kiitchens (indoor and outdoor), and it has an awesome entertaining layout. The property is very inviting and very comfortable....plenty of room to spread out (our party each enjoying our own bedroom) and a great room with fireplace and HUGE TV and lots of comfortable seating for hanging out. The owners were fabulous--great communication and follow-up--and they welcomed us with a bottle of white and red wine from their vineyard! Our only disappointment is that we didnt have enough time to just stay "home" and enjoy the accommodations! Can't wait to come back!

Paradise in Healdsburg

  • 5 of 5

My family and I went to wine country to celebrate my father's 80th birthday. This property was perfect for us! It really felt like home--clean, comfortable, fully stocked, and every detail was thought of. The owners were accessible but not intrusive, and the outdoor space was stunning! There are several areas outside to entertain and relax--from the firepit to the expansive outdoor kitchen, to the gorgeous pool and hot tub. My father, who has not been swimming in 40 years, felt compelled to take a dip because it was so inviting. Also, the landscape surrounding the property is extraordinarily beautiful! The location is close to several wineries, and convenient to local grocery stores and the restaurants in town. Overall, it was a fantastic rental home, and the best vacation ever--you will not be disappointed!

Summer vacation outdoor dream

  • 5 of 5

We could not have had a better time at this gorgeous property. The house was very nice, but the real star was the back yard, with the most elaborate outdoor kitchen I've ever seen, a stunning pool, hot tub, creek, vineyard views, fire pit, and multiple seating areas. Leslie was so nice and easy to work with. We would love to come back and stay again!

Amazing Stay! Beautiful indoor/outdoor vacation space.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Leslie's beautiful home. She was extremely responsive and helpful throughout the booking process. While there we spent most of our time enjoying the amazing outdoor space - the pool to keep us cool on a hot summer day, the outdoor kitchen to grill up our dinner, and the overall space for relaxation and time with family including the hilltop views. The house has everything you could need including a well stocked kitchen for the adult cooks and enough entertainment including TVs, games, and pool toys to keep the kids entertained. The house is well located - close to town (5 minutes to the store for last minute items) but far enough away to feel like you are in the country with vineyards and expansive views and close to many wineries or the river should you want to explore the surrounding area.

I recommend the home for anyone looking for a relaxing vacation place and can't wait to return with my family. Thank you Leslie!

It is a fabulous property, especially the outdoor space!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful setting looking out over the Alexander Valley! And the outdoor space in back is perfect for family dinners, tiring the kids out in the pool, and acoustic guitar jam sessions by the fire pit. We loved it and hope to be back soon!

Absolutely the Best in Healdsburg

  • 5 of 5

Me and my friends wanted a weekend away from San Francisco with our own pool and we happened upon this gem and snatched it up. When we arrived, we were astounded that it was better than we expected with a fully equipped (better than most indoor kitchens) kitchen completely stocked with anything you could need to prepare a family dinner or enjoy your day at the pool. The house was very cozy with all the comforts of home and the hosts of the home could not have been more gracious. Out of town themselves, they welcomed us via email and and made sure we were comfortable and didn't need a thing, which of course we didn't. I highly recommend this home for a short or a long stay, it is centrally located, has amazing vistas of the Alexander Valley, a gorgeous pool and hot tub and outdoor living room/kitchen. You won't be disappointed!!!!
