Overview

Sonoma County Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 3+ Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 7-10)

This large 3+-bedroom, 2.5 bath vacation home is located amongst beautiful redwoods, on the bank of Matanzas Creek, on a 26 acre property, all situated in the heart of Bennett Valley, in Sonoma County. Oak trees, redwoods, and 100 year old bay trees as well as Matanzas Creek surround the house. The 3000+ sq.ft. house was remodeled in 2008, and brand new high quality furniture and appliances make the place exceptionally comfortable and easy to use.

As beautiful as the inside is, the outside is incredible. The majestic redwoods and bay trees decorate the large 2000 sq.ft. patio adjacent to Matanzas Creek, all surrounded by year long green vegetation. In season various flowers adorn the whole environment. The patio in the front and the deck adjacent to the kitchen are generously furnished, ready for outdoor entertainment and cooking, with two large grills, four heat lamps and two fire pits. Finally, yet importantly are the trails, alongside the creek under the breathtaking trees.

The children will enjoy the toys, kids power wheels, the bicycles, the basketball hoop, as well as the play structure and swings which make the whole place a heaven for kids. They can also run around the trails, in the vineyard , up and down the trees and just have a great time.

The Vineyard: The 10 acre vineyard consists of twelve blocks of different varietals and clones. Each season brings its own charm and beauty to the vineyard. The buds start coming out in spring and in September when the leaves start changing colors, it is amazing to look at the majestic grape bunches hanging from the vines.

No pets.

Why Shawn Moaveni (Owner) chose Sonoma County

The vineyard is our second home, and we'll be glad to share it with others.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for opening your home and grounds to us. Our stay here at Moaveni Vineyard was absolutely delightful in every way. We enjoyed walking the trails, admiring the vineyard, and feeding the chickens, among many other things (oh, and the swing was so much fun). The attention to detail of both the house and the property was impeccable. One can tell the owners love their property, and this translates into a pleasurable vacation for those who appreciate both a beautiful landscape and the comforts of a cozy home. We will return again!!

Amazing family getaway graduation weekend...

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Moaveni house for our daughter's graduation from SSU. From the moment we drove down the driveway we knew we had found paradise! We arrived to find a welcome basket with wine, chocolate, and coffee! (and a welcome note from Shawn, the owner)... it was a perfect place for our extended family and everyone had their own room and plenty of space to relax. We enjoyed the spacious house, including the kitchen and outdoor cooking areas. We enjoyed the fire pits on both decks each day and walked the property daily. We even enjoyed fresh eggs from the chickens! The owners were available to answer questions and help with whatever we needed. Thank you so much for creating a family memory for us. We will definitely be returning for future vacations!

Great place ....as advertised. Owner was easy to work with as well.

  • 5 of 5

The house is located in the middle of a vineyard. A lovey location. It was nice and well equipped for a large group that likes to cook. The outdoor grills and heaters made for a perfect location to dine and later sip wine by the fire.

It was magical... we just had to come back!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Shawn's house twice now– and love it! The first time was with our families and it was magical. The grounds are perfect for young kids to explore and there is lots to play with. The second trip was for a team retreat with my business. There are 4 bedrooms, and lots of community space— making it perfect for us. It's far enough from town to feel secluded and allow us to see the stars and breath in the night sky, but close enough to hop into town for some groceries. We hope to back again!

couldn't be better

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented the house for our immediate family for a long weekend. The house was large, clean and accommodating, completely comfortable for 7 adults and 2 kids. The master bedroom feels tucked away in its own redwood grove. There were many relatives staying in the area, for a wedding. There are many attractions in Sonoma County but this house became our family headquarters for visits and get-togethers. The commodious, well stocked kitchen made mealtime for a large bunch easy and fun. There was space and outdoor furniture for every possible mode of sun and shade. The games and toys, especially in the garage, kept everyone entertained. The grounds are beautiful, plenty of space for walks and visits to the gardens, the chickens and the tire swing. I was impressed with the roses and other flowers, everything was so meticulously attended.

We also appreciated the hospitality and generosity of the owner and daughter, who went the extra mile and returned some forgotten items after our departure. Many kudos from us and our whole extended family. This is a fabulous place for a vacation or get together.

This house and property are truly enjoyable. The grounds are beautiful and very relaxing. The house was well set up, comfortable, well equipped and had a great layout. It was out in the country but not too far. We have three children all different ages and everyone loved it!!! Internet and cell service are not great and TVs were a bit problematic but those were the only issues we encountered. The owner is super nice and we were perfectly comfortable there. The redwoods and landscaping are amazing. A very enjoyable stay!

Owner's Response: I am sorry that you had some issues with the cell phone, Internet ant TV. I wish you had told me right away and I could at least remedy the TV issue. ATT cell service is great at our house, with Verizon a little lower quality and Sprint also not that good. I checked the TV which is provided through Dish network satellite and all four TVs worked fine on HD. No issues at all and all premium movie channels were working. Our internet is the best DSL provided by ATT. Unfortunately there is no cable and high speed internet available there. Therefore streaming may not be that good. Again I am sorry for your issues and I will do my best to make sure to improve the part I can manage to do.

This house is amazing!

  • 5 of 5

A perfect retreat for a lot of people. This house has everything from volleyball and basketball courts to board games etc. The house is immaculate and the grounds are the most beautiful and prestige that i have ever seen. You will feel like you are in tucked away in a small village in Italy! It is fully stocked and even has heat lamps for outdoor fun. This was a great place to stay for our daughters graduation from Sonoma State. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!
