Sonoma House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Master Bedrooms + Convertible bed, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

As featured in the New York Times Home section, September 19th, 2013: 'Bespoke for the People'

Welcome to the Hydeaway House, our modern vineyard retreat in the Carneros region of Sonoma!

This property is on a one-acre rural site adjacent to acres of working vineyards, yet only 4 miles from the historic Sonoma Plaza and Mission. There is a main house that sleeps six, a separate guest house that sleeps two, and a 10' x 30', 5' deep pool with solar thermal heating from Spring through Fall. Pets may be allowed at the owner's discretion.

The 2,000 square foot one-story main house has two nearly identical master bedrooms and baths, each with a king-size bed. There is also a sleeper sofa in the public space's media area, which includes a gas fireplace, TV, sound system (accepts iPhone 4 versions) and reading niche. The master suites are on opposite ends of the home and each have their own private outdoor terrace. The main house is perfect for two couples, with kids or other visitors using the media area sleeper sofa.

The kitchen has been designed by and for cooks with high end appliances and equipment. The home is air conditioned, pet-friendly and is extremely accessible; there are no stairs and each bathroom has a large roll-in/walk-in shower.

The separate guest house had one additional one guest room with a king sized bed, bath and service kitchenette. It is also air conditioned and has a private terrace overlooking the vineyards.

The property sits directly adjacent to acres of working vineyards and has views of the hillsides beyond. There are many outdoor spaces to wander through and is great for small gathering or isolation. The front garden has a large outdoor stone dining table. Or enjoy the custom 16' long picnic table made from recycled Douglas Fir beams that sits under the large Oaks at the edge of the property. The site is also a wonderful jumping off point for bike riding, sightseeing, and wine tasting. The architect-designed buildings are perfect for folks who appreciate a modern, uncluttered, and comfortable design.

About Neal Schwartz, Principal, Schwartz and Architecture

I am an architect, professor, and dog lover with an active design practice in the Bay Area. We found this land in 2011 and fell in love with it. I designed the vacation home I always dreamed of; sustainable, accessible, modern and warm with a great focus on privacy, light and views. Every part of the design of the home is meant to focus your attention on the beauty of the landscape and the vineyards beyond. We hope to build up a group of repeat visitors with whom we can share our new home for years to come. For more information on our work, please visit by searching our firm Schwartz and Architecture.

Why Neal Schwartz, Principal, Schwartz and Architecture chose Sonoma County

For us, the site is in a perfect location. It is 45 minutes from the Golden Gate Bridge and even less from the Richmond Bridge. It is only 4 miles to Sonoma Plaza and only 8 miles to Napa and the valley beyond. We are also discovering quickly what a wonderful, open and friendly new community we have found. Please join us!

What makes this house unique

The site is so central to everything yet feels so tucked away -- really the vineyard retreat we always dreamt of.

Genius Design

  • 5 of 5

Hydeaway House is a phenomenally designed space that takes full advantage of the land. The home is situated to maximize the gorgeous, tranquil views of the working vineyard next door from every vantage. Outside, tables and chairs are strategically located to ensure there is always a spot in the sun or shade. The pool is perfect -- just big enough but not too big, and perfectly sited on the property. All of the furnishings and equipment are in perfect condition. It is clear the owners take great pride in the home, and it's impossible not to marvel at one's good fortune in getting to share the experience. We'll be back.

Highly Reccomend

  • 5 of 5

Newer, modern 3 bedroom 3 bath in excellent condition. Great location particularly if you are visiting both Napa and Sonoma. We had 3 couples and Hydeaway House was the perfect size. Great well equipped kitchen if you aren't planning to visit restaurants every evening.

Tranquil, Beautiful, Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The Hydeaway Home is a beautiful and peaceful place to stay. Our group of 8 was very comfortable, as the living area is really spacious for that size of a group. Also, it isn't so bad waking up to the lovely sights of the vineyard just in the backyard. It's just about a 10 minute drive to downtown Sonoma. And about 15-20 minutes to Napa.

Also, the ease of booking made this such a mellow process.

Basically, I can't wait to go back. Thanks so much for a great vacation!

Great House

  • 5 of 5

It was an amazing house. I would recommend it to anyone. The design is incredible and is great for a family. We had two young kids and it was a very kid friendly place.

Wonderful place to stay during our daughter's wedding week!

  • 5 of 5

Our daughter was married at Gloria Ferrer this past weekend, and we chose this house originally mostly because the separate pool house would be a great private spot for the bride and groom. The features and ambiance of the house truly added to a delightful week! We assembled welcome bags at the spacious table and prepared a gourmet pre-wedding picnic in the fabulous kitchen, where there was room for all five of us to cook. The arrangements went smoothly and Kathy and Neal were both helpful with a few questions we had. We did not want to leave. We'll be back and next time we'll bring the dog.
