About Julie Valdes

Hi Guests! Thank you for your interest in our Sonoma home for your next trip to wine country!

After our first visit to wine country only 5 years ago, we knew this place was something truly magical. Since then we began our search for the perfect property that would become the setting for so many amazing family memories and we finally found it!

We are from Los Angeles and take every opportunity to escape the stress and head up north to take in the beautiful wine countryside.

We welcome your stay and look forward to sharing this special place with you and your family. We hope you fall in love as we did and make many special memories!

Julie Valdes purchased this house in 2013

Why Julie Valdes chose Sonoma County

It is truly the best of all worlds. As you cross the architectural steel bridge and enter Glen Ellen you will know exactly why this property is so special and unique. Nestled in the hills of the famous Jack London Regional Park and only mins away from the vines, this property was exactly what our family had been looking for. Close enough to walk to some of our favorite eateries and wineries.

What makes this house unique

The house location is in the heart of Sonoma with easy access to all the wine country has to offer but nothing beats cooking a gourmet meal in the kitchen while looking out at the beautiful backyard vines. Or even waking early and taking a morning walk to the Glen Ellen market for a cup of coffee and delicious freshly baked pastry. Or even just as the sun begins to set over the hills, taking a glass of your favorite wine find of the day and sitting up at the terrace in the vines overlooking Sonoma regional park. This place is truly remarkable!

Fantastic home in the wine country

  • 5 of 5

We love this house. It had everything we needed to make for a wonderful wine country experience. We were greeted with a bottle of wine and a personal welcome note. The house is well decorated for a homey feeling. The grounds filled our hearts with a walk through the vineyards and an evening soak in the hot tub. We had everything we needed for supplies and the local market was a short walk down the road.

Loved it.

Thanks for letting us stay.

A perfect getaway home! Beautiful, spacious, and awesome central location for wine country!

  • 5 of 5

I surprised my wife with a 40th bday getaway......with 3 other couples! The property was in a quiet, central location to Napa, Sonoma, and Alexander Valkey. It was perfect. The house is spacious and there was plenty of room for all, particularly, when lounging around the firepit outside in the crisp, cool air. Plenty of space for grilling and chilling after a long day of touring/tastings. the Valdes Vineyard on property is an added bonus to pull you right in the spirit of your surroundings. For several couples or large family, highly recommend.

Beautiful home in good location

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home. Clean and comfortable. Perfect for our group of 6. The kitchen is in great shape for preparing meals. The outdoor firepit is lovely.

There are too many great wineries nearby to visit in a week. Glen Ellen is a terrific little community. We would stay here again.

Women Folk Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Nine of us ladies from around the country enjoyed our stay here. There was plenty of room for parking and sleeping. The kitchen had everything we needed and the setting both inside and outside was perfect. We enjoyed great conversations while cooking and while relaxing around the fireplaces (inside and outside) and we took full advantage of the hot tub and the surrounding wineries. The grocery store was close as was the local chocolate shop. Our hosts were attentive and made sure we were well taken care of. We will surely return again.
