About Michael Ray

My husband and I love to travel and stay in unique homes. When we were looking for a home to offer as a vacation rental we knew immediately this home would be perfect. There isn't another home like it, anywhere. It has a fantastic location in the center of the wine country, is very private and is surrounded by beautiful views and landscaping.

Michael Ray purchased this house in 2011

Why Michael Ray chose Sonoma County

We love Sebastopol. It's rural, but it's 15 minutes close to everything any big city has to offer and it's only an hour drive into San Francisco. People are friendly, open and accepting and the tasting rooms are relaxed and uncrowded.

What makes this house unique

This home is like no other home. When you drive through the front gate it gives you the feel of arriving at a castle. There is an open floor plan, great for a large or small family, with three bedrooms (king, king, queen, a den/bedroom with a full size bed and a large recreation room). You can barbecue out on the deck while dipping in and out of the hot tub ~ or talking to those inside watching TV on the flat screen.

A great time had by all!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lot of fun at this house. We stayed in October for 3 nights. We had two babies and 5 adults. We were greeted by Michael and he gave us a tour of the house. As you can see by the pictures, it's a very eclectic house, which makes it even more fun. After touring the wineries during the day, we enjoyed cooking in the kitchen, playing pool in the game room, and going in the hot tub. We mentioned to Michael that we were Cubs fans and hoped we could get the playoffs, and he upgraded his cable just for us! I also left behind 2 swimsuits, and he is mailing them to us. This is a very fun property to stay at!!

We had a great time in our stay at the Castle. Mike and Kristin met us and graciously gave us the tour and history along with many superb recommendations for the area as well as wine tasting coupons. We were a family of 7 meeting from all over for our youngest's 30th birthday. We used the game room for a 1920's themes goodbye tot he 20s dinner and the house vibe was just how she wanted it. Beds were comfortable, kitchen had all we needed, hot tub even in the rain was wonderful. For a unique place, in a great location, for an adult group, it was what we wanted.

The Castle House lives up to it's Name

  • 5 of 5

The castle house was beautiful! I really loved the openness of the living area and Kitchen. My Grandchildren could not get enough of the bewitching eyes of the Wind God who guards the house. The house was equipped with everything we needed to include games and even a small train for my Grandson to play with. The property is huge and includes it's own little vineyard. It is conveniently located to Santa Rosa and Bodega Bay. We were able to visit several wineries, and a brewery. The only issue we had was that we had to leave.

Unique and Charming- Right in the Heart of Wine Country

  • 5 of 5

The Castle House was perfect for our young family. Our daughters thought they were in a real Disney Castle and the adults found it intriguing. We missed the tour from Michael as we arrived later than expected and never had the chance with our busy schedule, but I highly recommend setting this up with him as the home has several unique attributes we wanted to know more about. Its nestled on a nice size property with grape vines, redwoods and water features you truly have it all. The main house has everything you will need including high end appliances and comfortable beds (with lots and lots of extra bedding). It is well equipped with kitchen utensils, spices and even an outdoor grill. They had a bottle of wine on the counter for us when we arrived, how amazing is that! They also had a very nice collection of maps and complimentary tastings to wineries all over the area including the winery that is literally down the road within walking distance. There were several lovely bakeries and eateries fairly close as well (we loved moms apple pie and the bakery right next door). We spent our time at many of the area wine regions as this home is about a 30 minute drive to many of them. We did Napa, Sonoma, Russian River, Alexander Valley and Dry Creek. It was so nice coming home at the end of the day to sip wine on the quiet back porch. Check out process was very simple. This will be a home we will always remember! I highly recommend the Castle House and hope your experience is as delightful as ours.

Bocci ball is at many near by wineries! The Russian River is less than 3 miles away with kayaking rentals at Burkes, tubing and sunning! Bodega Bay (Pacific Ocean) is only 25 minutes away
