We have lived here in Sonoma county for 30 years and love the area for its beauty, hiking, biking, wineries, music concerts, farmer's markets and the close proximity to amazing restaurants, cafes, and shopping.
Julie & Tony purchased this house in 1998
Lovely location here in the country on 3 acres, yet close to Santa Rosa, Windsor, and Healdsburg
We loved your place, it was so nice and peaceful,and clean, thanks for letting us know of some
wonderful wineries to visit, we look forward to visit again soon
We loved this place. It has a lovely elevated deck overlooking trees and shrubs. We spotted a few early morning deer while enjoying coffee on the deck, and relaxed with our wine and cheese in the evening, enjoying the serenity of the surroundings. We also laid out on the lounge chairs on the separate patio area at night time, taking in thousands of stars and the frog music of the night. We even saw one spectacular, memorable shooting star. After a day of wine tastings, we soaked our weary bodies in the hot tub under a sprawling tree. Inside, the studio was very nice with tv, coffee maker, and a comfy bed. Everything was clean and as advertised. The wifi was not connecting on the morning in which we were leaving, but I believe that was problematic in the entire area, as we experienced similar disconnects in other wifi spots. We highly recommend this place.
This was our first stay at a VRBO & we could not have been more pleased. We met Tony when we arrived, who gave us a few winery suggestions as well as a restaurant in Healdsburg. The studio was clean, great bedding & comfortable bed. We were able to cook breakfast on the hot plate, which was convenient. We stayed 3-nights & it was nice of Julie & Tony to empty our trash, provide water bottles in the frig & replace our towels, which we did not expect. Having stayed at hotels in Napa & Sonoma, this was such a better option for us and great wineries in the Chalk Hill area. We definitely would stay here during future visits. Next time will take advantage of the patio & maybe the hot tub!
This studio apartment is on the lower floor of the owners' $1M+ home which is perched on a steep hillside on picturesque Chalk Hill. Within an easy drive of all Napa/Sonoma destinations, but also away from it all. Minutes from the beautiful Healdsburg and Windsor downtowns and Santa Rosa conveniences. The owners offered help if we needed it, but being very familiar with the area, we didn't ask for any. So they left us alone to enjoy our 4 day stay. The rental includes a private paved parking spot directly below with private stairs up to the unit. The apartment is as advertised by the owners, and has everything you need as long as you're not planning to do any gourmet cooking. Our "complaints" were very minor. One is that you can hear footsteps on the floor above--probably because their floors are tile or wood, but the owners were otherwise very quiet and kept normal sleeping hours. Someone else below mentioned the privacy concern. The apartment is connected to the main house by 2 inside doors, one which you can lock and the other up some stairs but covered at the apartment level by a curtain. The curtain is right at the entrance to the bathroom, so you must "trust" that the owner will not surprise you by opening their door at an inconvenient time. They said they wouldn't and did not, but that would be one worthwhile change to the unit--a lockable door there for better privacy and the feeling of security. Otherwise, we really liked the place and found it to be a good value. Clean, well kept, nice bed and furniture. Adequate kitchenette. Good bathroom and shower. Full walk-in closet though some of the space was occupied by the owners' things. All considered, we'd recommend it and will likely come back again.
We enjoyed our 3 night stay. The location is lovely, so quiet. The balcony was pleasant, perfect for enjoying a morning coffee or afternoon glass of wine. Julie and Tony were helpful hosts and gave us some great tips. The hike in Foothills Regional Park was just fantastic. We did cook our breakfasts however the two burner electric hot plate is not adequate for a meal preparation, something we enjoy doing. We would return!
Overall my husband and I really enjoyed our stay. The room was exactly how it is pictured. The room itself was clean and roomy. It was defiantly a plus to have a small kitchen area. Unfortunately, there are a few negatives.
The largest negative was that the room doesn't have air conditioning. While it wouldn't be a problem for those who visit in the cooler seasons, we were here when it was 95 degrees. It was extremely uncomfortable to sleep because it was so warm. If the room did have air conditioning, it would have to have been monitored by an upstairs thermostat that we did not have access to. So as far as temperature, we had no control . Maybe I missed this in the description, but pointing this out should be required. Also, the footsteps. I had read in prior reviews that this was irritating to people, I never thought it would bother me as much as it did. You can hear everything from upstairs. Almost every morning I was woken due to people walking around upstairs. Lastly, all the coffee cups and wine glasses were dirty. We arrived in the mid to late evening our first night and hoped to share a glass of wine to kick off our anniversary weekend. Out of about 10ish wine glasses not one of them were clean. All of them had dried wine in the bottom. Almost as if someone drank out of them and put them right back in the cabinet-coffee mugs were the same. Dish soap was abiliable to wash them so it wasn't the end of the world, but it was a bit frustrating. I would like to note that the owners of the home had temporary renters upstairs. They had been housesitting for the owners for the last three months. So, I'm not sure who was responsible for preparing our room and checking to make sure things (like the dishes) were clean.
If you read prior reviews about the privacy concern, I would not worry. We never experienced any issues. It would be nice to have an actual door between the hall to the main house and the bathroom rather than just a curtain. But overall, It wasn't an issue for us.
Would we revisit? During the cooler weather seasons, we would love to revisit. The price is unbeatable and location is wonderful.
The studio is nice and clean and pretty spacious. The property itself is beautiful and the jacuzzi tub was a nice perk although we didn't take advantage of it. The location is quiet and only 15 minutes from downtown. Our one big complaint is the house was not well insulated so we were able to hear all the noise from inside. The owners were away and had renters in the main house. They walked around the house at all hours of the night. It was like they never slept. Their heavy footsteps kept us up all night the entire time we were there. If it weren't for those people we would've enjoyed our stay much more.
Close to Chalk Hill winery which is on 2400 acres and has an amazing tour, then only 12-14 minutes to downtown Healdsburg, or 5-7 minutes to downtown Windsor, great location as we are in the country yet close to many activities and shopping
