About the property

Indulge in your own private villa nestled in the heart of wine country, located perfectly on a short cut between Sonoma to Napa Valley, 2 miles from the main Sonoma road of wineries, 9 miles from Sonoma Plaza. This stylish mid-century modern home was built on a spectacular 4.5-acre setting located in the hills above the Sonoma Valley and is a Licensed Vacation Rental with the County of Sonoma. Take a dip in your private idyllic pool, styled as a lake amongst the trees. Hang out in the outdoor hot tub with views of mountains and redwoods. Spend hours playing bocce on a court next to a private vineyard. Test out that new recipe you have been dying to try in your own gourmet kitchen. Dine al fresco on your private deck, then sip cocktails on outdoor seating while the sunset casts a warm hue on your amazing view of the “Valley of the Moon.” On a cold night, cozy up by the warm fireplace. Take in a movie, or relax, on the sophisticated and modern furnishings. This property is behind a private gate in a tranquil setting that cannot be seen from the road. The home is designed to maximize outdoor living, with plenty of windows to take in the view, and doors situated to allow easy outside access from almost every room! Each bedroom has its own private exit. The home is surrounded by amenities, and tranquil settings.

While you visit, see wine country and relax. This villa is well-located and is very convenient to Sonoma and Napa valleys. The house is about two miles from the Sonoma Highway (Hwy. 12), which is not only a beautiful drive, but it is also dotted with many wineries, such as, B.R. Cohn, Valley of the Moon, St. Francis, Arrowood, Imagery, Mayo, Wellington, Kunde, Kenwood, Ledson, and many others. A short drive or taxi ride down a scenic road are the restaurants and wine tasting rooms of the towns of Glen Ellen (~2 miles), Kenwood (~5 miles) or the Sonoma Square (~9 miles). Key towns in the Napa Valley are also close by. Yountville, with the French Laundry and Bouchon restaurants, is ~11 miles away; St. Helena, with its shops and restaurants is ~14 miles away; and Highway 29, the main road through the Napa Valley is ~8 miles away.

This villa has so many amenities to entertain you, it creates a great vacation. You will be tempted to return year after year.

Because we require a written vacation rental agreement (sent via email) it is best to use the "contact owner" feature before a request to book.

County law requires us to inform potential guests of the following:

- Our vacation rental permit number is 996N

- Guests must observe quiet hours between 10:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m.

- Guests must not have more than three vehicles at this home.

Why Eric chose Glen Ellen

We live in San Francisco, but fell in love with wine country. After years looking, we finally found a home on our favorite road in Sonoma, between the Sonoma and Napa Valleys. We have always been fans of Mid-Century Modern Architecture. We fell in love with this home at first sight. We hope you love our home as much as we do!

What makes this house unique

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION AND AMENITIES! This home has many spaces to lounge while you are home, and puts you in the heart of where you want to be when you are out -- in the center of the wineries. There are top rated restaurants just down the hill, and the elevation provide spectacular views.

Private Bocce Ball Court, with outdoor dining, and with view of hobby vineyard, is located on property in the back yard. This property is a single family residence on a large wooded lot, with no guest homes. There are neighbors in the area, but trees maintain a sense of serenity and privacy. We own the property down the hill in the view areas, so no homes obstruct the view.

Outstanding wine country home!

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome stay in this beautiful home. We enjoyed the pool and the lovely views, the hot tub and especially learning to play bocce ball. The house was very comfortable and had everything we could need. Although Trinity Road is a winding road, it was perfect for easy access to both Sonoma and Napa Valley. I would definitely recommend this property and hope to return again next time I'm in wine country.

Amazing Sonoma Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends & I stayed here for a long weekend and we had the most amazing time!! First of all, the house is BEAUTIFUL!! It's spacious, has an amazing chef's kitchen, a hot tub and a bocce ball court! (Yes, we took advantage of all 3!) It's in a great location, very near downtown Sonoma & a ton of wineries. The homeowner, Eric, was super accommodating, very easy to work with, and very thoughtful in the amenities provided (even little things like a hair dryer!). My only caution to those who get car sick is that the drive to/from the house is pretty windy so be prepared for that. If you have the opportunity to stay here, I would highly recommend it! We would all love to come back some day!

Wine Country Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

There are so many things we loved about this property! First, the views are absolutely amazing! It's so relaxing to sit out on the patio and drink coffee in the morning and enjoy the gorgeous valley views. At night, we enjoyed the hot tub with a glass of wine. It was a little chilly to spend much time in the pool (May) but we jumped in a few times. The house is an entertainers dream vacation house with so much to do! We played ping pong in the basement but didn't get a chance to use the bocce court. The house is fully stocked with everything you could want to cook for an evening. We enjoyed staying in and bbq'ing two nights. Eric is extremely helpful and responsive to questions. This was an amazing wine country gem :) We would definitely stay here again!

A beautiful home with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this home. The house itself was beautiful and spacious. The views were amazing!! We cooked breakfast every day and dinner all but one night during our stay. The suggested wineries that Eric provided us were spot-on and we visited several in Sonoma and Napa. Our favorite restaurant for lunch was the Rutherford Grill. We would come back late afternoon, sit on the deck drinking our wine purchased earlier in the day and just enjoy the view. It was a little too cool yet to enjoy the pool, however the hot tub was very nice. We also enjoyed playing Bocce ball nightly. Great fun was had by all.

The steep, twisty-turny road to the house was a little intense at first but, after going up and down and couple of times was no big deal. We can't say enough positive things about our stay here. If we have the opportunity to stay again, we will!!

Amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

Had a family celebration in the Napa Valley. This VRBO was just as the pictures indicated. The house was clean, organized and very accommodating. The view was stunning as we spent mornings and evenings on the deck enjoying the scenery.

This property is located in the heart of wine country. The home is well-located for a tour of world renowned wineries -- two miles from a restaurant hot spot amidst the Sonoma wine region. It is situated on a scenic ridge between Napa and Sonoma, overlooking the Valley of the Moon (aka Sonoma Valley). Two miles down the road is the quaint village of Glen Ellen, and the Sonoma Highway. Glen Ellen is the site of multiple fine restaurants and a high-end gourmet grocery store. The Sonoma Highway is part of a 17-mile stretch of wineries. Just to the North of Glen Ellen is Kenwood, just five miles away from the property and home to the world class Kenwood Spa and additional restaurants. A 9-mile scenic drive south leads to the historic Sonoma Plaza with restaurants, wine tasting, supermarkets, etc. If you head down the mountain in the other direction, you will find yourself in the Napa Valley, starting at Oakville, with Rutherford, Yountville and St. Helena just a few miles beyond. San Francisco Airport is about 60 miles away. There are plenty of activities nearby. Hike the scenic Overlook Trail, horseback ride, or even rent kayaks.
