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!

Absolutely beautiful!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate to stay in Tom & Julie's beautiful home in the heart of Sonoma. There were 4 couples in total and your home is a perfect location to enjoy the wineries and restaurants that were located so close to your home. Couldn't ask for a better location. The amenities your home provides for visitors couldn't be better. You've absolutely thought of everything. We are looking forward to doing this again next year and staying at your wonderful home. Thank you for everything.

Great house with lots of room and perfect location for wine tastings!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of friends loved the house and had an amazing time. The house is perfectly located for groups of friends that want to do tastings around both Napa and Sonoma. The property is beautiful with a spacious outdoor area for grilling, enjoying the hot tub or a glass of wine by the fire! Thank you to the Valdes family for their great hospitality!

Perfect Peaceful Retreat.

  • 5 of 5

First of all, THANK YOU!!!

I had a wonderful time at this rental property. We initially had hard time locating a property due to another property owner canceling on us. Julie went out of her way and worked with the dates that we had requested. She was always available for questions and always responded to text and or emails. The property was very clean and well stocked. Very spacious, I only had a couple guests but the home would accommodate a bunch. The vineyard in the back yard was just cool. The patio area with the fire pit and hot tub was perfect for relaxing and was very quiet. I don’t know if I could ask for much more. The home was about 1 hour from San Francisco but there were plenty of stores within 10-15 minutes where you could purchase whatever you needed. You didn't have to drive far to find a tasting room. The first time was an accident, the other times...well they were on purpose. There were plenty of restaurants that were equally as close. This was my first rental using Home Away and this experience exceeded my expectations. I would definitely rent this property again in the future. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

Wonderful home for a girls getaway

  • 5 of 5

9 of us, all middle-aged professional women, who've been taking a yearly retreat together for a decade, stayed here for the weekend, and had a fabulous time. The owners have done a wonderful job furnishing this lovely home, and it suited our needs perfectly. A great layout makes it possible to gather in one large group, or several smaller ones. Very comfortable beds, (with all the bedrooms on the second floor) luxurious linens, comfortable furniture, good lighting, and beautiful outdoor spaces. Great hot tub. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare and serve meals. Hiking in the nearby Regional and State Parks was delightful. We hope to return next year.
