Wine Country Vacation Rental, Santa Rosa Ca

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (beds for 8)

Attractive & comfortable 2500 sq. foot home right in the heart of Wine Country.

Location, location, location. This home sits between Napa Valley & the beautiful Sonoma Coast making each area you visit a spectacularly beautiful drive, but not an unbearable distance.

Golden Gate Bridge & San Francisco 60 minutes

Valley of the Moon/Sonoma Valley 10 minute, countless wineries

Ledson Winery & Vineyards 6.2 miles

St. Francis Winery & Vineyards 7.3 miles

Hidden Ridge Vineyard 7.5 miles

Paradise Ridge Winery 4.4 miles

Russian River Resort area and amazing canoeing & swimming 20 minutes

Muir Woods 1 hours + 10 minutes

Armstrong Redwoods 39 minutes

Napa Valley only 30 minutes of spectacular driving to get there

Bodega Bay & Doran Park 48 minutes

Jenner & Goat Rock 60 minutes

Annadel State Park & amazing hiking, amazing mountain biking, fishing & swimming, Spring Lake Regional Park with gentle hike/walks around an inspirational lake that has canoeing & Howarth Park an outstanding park that caters to younger children that has a train, amazing childrens play area & another lake. All 3 parks touch each other and easily access each other.

Doran Park & Sonoma Coast State Park at Salmon Creek are another unique and wonderful aspect of the magnificent Sonoma Coast. The Sonoma Coast is powerful & threatening most of the time & Doran Park provides a reasonably safe beach area for younger children with Caribbean types of waves as it is protected by Bodega Bay from the powerful surf that comes in from the Pacific Ocean. Sonoma Coast State Park at Salmon Creek has a unique beach that has wonderful sand dunes for the adventurous to explore all day long.

All this is why this home is unique for a trip to wine country.

Do not underestimate the wonderful winter weather at the Sonoma Coast. This is one of those 'local' secrets that the fall, winter & spring weather at the coast is actually quite nice & more appealing than the summer weather.

If you do not want to drive anywhere, literally across the street is Upper Brush Creek Regional Park. This is a stone throw from this home and it provides 5 acres of undeveloped park with oaks & personal solitude for a invigorating walk in the morning.

There is a dog (border collie) on the property. IF you have anyone in your party that is extremely allergic to dogs my property is not what you need. The dog spends an occasional night in the home.

About The Owner

I like my dog. I like my friends. I like my children. I like my grandchildren. I like where I live. I like people. I like my work.

The Owner purchased this house in 2000

Why The Owner chose Santa Rosa

I always dreamed of living in Northern California because of the its incredible beauty & amazing weather.

What makes this house unique

I enjoy gardening and have a wonderful & unique greenhouse, along with raised beds that I enjoy growing my own beets, turnips, cilantro, basil etc...

I love volley ball and the yard is 3500 sq. ft. so we keep a volleyball net up all the time that can be quickly removed. On Saturday mornings @ 11 am there is an Ultimate Frisbee club that meets 2 minutes away @ the north end of Montecito Park.

Great house with plenty of room

  • 4 of 5

We came to CA to attend a wedding for my niece. Three families stayed here and had plenty of room. Ken is the most accommodating host I have ever met! The house was clean and had all of the things we needed at our fingertips. Thanks again Ken!

Wine Tasting Week

  • 5 of 5

Rented the house for a week wine tasting in Napa and Sonoma. Great starting point for any place you want to go. Grocery store close by. The kitchen was supplied with the necessities to grill and cook.

We thought the house was as advertised. If you are tall, the Murphy Bed might not be ideal, but it works. Not big on amenities - bring you own soap, shampoo and hair dryer. Functional for three couples.

Pool table a plus!! We had a fun time staying at the house.

First time utilizing VRBO and Ken made it so easy!! He replies back promptly and provides detail information JR is a nice resource while staying at the house.

We loved how new and updated this house was! The kitchen was fun to cook in, beds were comfortable and we all had more than enough room! JR was very helpful, even when we arrived later than expected. Beautiful backyard as well - love the jacuzzi!

Caretaker lives on site. Rang doorbell at 8:00 a.m. after we arrived late the night before. Involved in everything - like having an extra roommate! Bedrooms and baths are dated and small. Small parking area in dead end street. WAY OVERPRICED!!!!

Owner's Response: I show respect to my neighbors and parking is an issue in our area. There is lots of parking, but it is a 100 yard walk. I have a 2 car policy at the property in the contract and these guests chose NOT to respect that and my caretaker waited until 8 a.m. to ask them to move their car from my neighbors parking area. These guests critique is inconsistent with the rest of my reviews, so you may decide.

Was Perfect for our Group

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our group of four adults and 5 teenagers. We were in Santa Rosa for my son's wedding so out of town family stayed together at this rental. We had a pre-wedding celebration at the house for family and wedding party and this home was big enough to comfortably accommodate everyone even though it was raining and we couldn't use the yard. We had friendly foosball, pool and ping pong competitions. Portable twin bedding allowed teen cousins to sleep together in the family room.

The kitchen was amazing! It had everything we needed including a double oven! Bedrooms were comfortable and the master with the extra room provided a perfect place for my son and his wedding party to get ready before the wedding. After guests left we enjoyed the hot tub even though it was raining! We were hoping to use the backyard volleyball net, but again we had a rainy weekend.

Ken always responded in a timely manner and his on site caretaker, JR was a delight. The only challenge we had was parking - however understanding where parking was available ahead of time helped and we put up balloons and sent email notifications to guests as to where to park. Again, the rain provided a challenge, otherwise the short walk from parking to house would not have been an issue.

The house was clean and had plenty of towels for a house full of women getting ready for a wedding plus use for the hot tub and toweling off from the rain. I would recommend this property.

Beautiful house, nicely set up

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Kenneth's house. The house is beautiful and the yard is large and well kept. I did not think the pictures did it justice. Thanks for the great stay!
