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.

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.

Amazing birthday get away!!

  • 5 of 5

Tom and Julie have a spectacular home and pay attention to detail. I was celebrating a milestone birthday and when I walked in the door there was a lovely bottle of wine accompanied by a Birhday wine glass and very sweet birthday message. There were also a few b.d. Signs in the house. Extremely thoughtful!!

House was super clean,beds were extremely comfortable and the house provided all the comforts of home.

We all had a fantastic time!!!

Thank you Tom and Julie!!

A great palce to stay

  • 5 of 5

Our daughter got married on a nearby estate and we /the brides family members, stayed here. It was wonderful. Great location, we visited several of the nearby wineries. The house was immaculate, centrally located for our needs and spacious. We used the fire pit almost every night as a gathering place to review the days events.

Was the perfect place for our family the weekend of our sons wedding!

  • 5 of 5

Had the most wonderful experience at your beautiful home! Pictures do not do it justice. Plenty of room for everyone to be together or to get away from it all. The outdoor space was really just breathtaking...especially at night, with the lighted pagoda to the wonderfully warm fire pit, all overlooking a lit up hill and vineyard. It was a bit cool at night so the fire pit and hot tub was much appreciated. With all of us in the wedding party, we had ample room to get ready for the big event. everyone had their own large bedroom and plenty of bathrooms! The location was perfect for our wedding in Glen Ellen and the rehearsal dinner in Sonoma...everything was just minutes away. Wonderful restaurants and market within 1/2 mile! Thank you again Julie for all your help and so appreciated the opportunity to stay at your lovely home !

Had a wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our group of 8. It was centrally located to everything we wanted to do during the day. I loved the market and it was just right up the street. The patio was wonderful. We enjoyed our evenings around the firepit and in the hot tub while grilling out. The backyard scenery was beautiful. The house was roomy and comfortable with all the amenities we needed plus more. We enjoyed cooking and grilling each night and the kitchen was very well stocked with all cookware.

Thank you for letting us stay. I hope to be back.
