About Kathy Dusak

We live in Alameda, California, about 1 hour from Sonoma. For more than seven years we have been looking for that perfect Sonoma house that we could enjoy with our three children and our friends. We love to entertain, swim, play hard and rest in a relaxed atmosphere that is beautiful but not stuffy. We wanted to be close to the bay area but also feel like we were really away from everything. We love the Sonoma area and focused our search there because it is a fantastic, unpretentious place with outstanding food, great festivals, a vibrant artistic community and is ideal for couples, friends and families.

Kathy Dusak purchased this house in 2012

Why Kathy Dusak chose Sonoma County

We loved this property because both the house and the surrounding land allowed us to have nearly every amenity imaginable, all in the heart of the wine country. The house, which was built in 1995, had been lovingly maintained when we bought it. It was butter yellow with mature grape vines growing over the arbors in the backyard. The house needed some updating when we bought it, but that was a task we enthusiastically embraced. We have been waiting for this for so long that in renovating and appointing the house we tried to include every thing that allows us to really escape. The television quality is awesome, the salt water pool feels outstanding, the linens, the art, the pool table, ping pong table, yoga studio, etc. all make us feel like this is really our retreat. We could not love this home more and hope you feel the same way.

What makes this house unique

What I really love about this house is that we were able to pay attention to the little details that can make a place special like new cook books in the kitchen, indoor and outdoor wine glasses, an outdoor copper fire pit, and down comforters. Throughout the property there are little surprises like ripe grapes and peaches growing in the yard in the summer. It is truly a delicious, romantic, spacious, family-friendly retreat.

We loved staying here! This place has everything: comfortable beds, full chef kitchen, patio, pool, hot tub, and BBQ. And it is ideally located near all that Sonoma has to offer: wineries, restaurants and shops. We would definitely stay here again. Loved the decor!

Lovely and comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved this house! The location is great and is very close to downtown Sonoma, shops and wineries. The house is tastefully decorated with beautiful art, and had everything we needed -- comfortable beds, fun game room (pool table and foozball), large screen tv, fully furnished kitchen (we cooked our meals and the kitchen had everything I needed), and a wonderful backyard with a pool and hot tub. Highly recommended!

Fabulous Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Two families with teens and tween children recently shared this fabulous Sonoma retreat. The vacation home is very spacious, incredibly well-appointed, and frankly, luxurious. We are used too staying in 4 and 5 star hotels and this home was just as lovely. No detail has been overlooked. The indoor spaces are roomy and the furnishings provided plenty of space for everyone. The kitchen has everything we needed and more! The outdoor area was simply wonderful. The pool and spa were great for kids and adults, and eating al fresco was perfect. We took daily walks by vineyards only a few blocks away and our teenage kids were able to walk to nearby stores to get drinks and ice-cream. Simply a fabulous vacation home - we will definitely be back!!

This is a VRBO we will return to. It's in a great location close to the Sonoma Mission Inn. The house is well appointed with everything we needed for a family get away.

The perfect home away from home!!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent the past weekend here and had such a great time that I had to write a review. This house is not only clean and beautifully decorated but they didn't skip a beat in making sure everything you could ever need was there! The kids had a blast playing ping pong and pool as the adults played card games at night by the fireplace while lounging on what had to be the most comfortable sofa ever!! These owners thougth of everything!! They even had a yoga studio! This house is located only about 3 miles from the square which made for a nice Saturday morning bike ride:) We are definately coming back!! Btw, it might be a 4 bedroom but the sofas are huge and both pull out into beds and the over sized bean bags were so comfortable that I fell asleep on one friday night! I would say it could comfortably sleep 12.
