About the property

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!!

Spacious Home on vineyard, 26 acres, Wonderful for All Ages
average rating of 5.0 based on 49 reviews

Spacious house stocked with everything we need, beautiful property, great location.

  • 5 of 5

Our two families spent several days here, cooking, relaxing, walking and playing. Our kids had plenty of entertainment between adventure walks, bikes and scooters and visiting the animals. Adults had many places to walk and lounge. Location is minutes away from Glen Ellen market, and 30 minute drive to Sonoma or downtown Santa Rosa. Beautiful relaxing property.

Amazing location with all of Sonoma County's best features- redwoods, views and vineyards.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were getting married at a nearby venue, and this was a perfect retreat where my family could stay and relax between wedding events. The owner was very attentive, and was available by phone whenever we needed anything. It was a very welcoming experience. The property is beautiful and the kitchen was well stocked. Lots of activities for families including bikes, ping pong, books and board games, as well as great outdoor spaces. I'd highly recommend Shawn's beautiful home to anyone looking for a vacation in Sonoma County!

Awesome vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

Great house, great location, amazing views, too many great things to say about this house. We have stayed here twice and each time we've had a blast. It's a great spot to kick off the day (especially when you have a day of wine tastings ahead of you). Even comes with a bottle of wine that is made from the grapes on the property!

The Greyshock Family and Friends, party of 10 Adults

  • 5 of 5

This Home and Setting could not have been more Perfect! What could be more Welcoming than arriving to a gorgeous, spotlessly clean, well stocked Home with a beautiful kitchen, nestled within a mini Forest of towering Redwoods, surrounded by well tended Vineyards, with a Creek running through the property! The outdoor viewing, entertainment and relaxing areas with plenty of seating and outdoor heaters, were perfect for our large party of 10 adults. We all enjoyed ourselves, and appreciated everything extra that this owner did to make our stay as enjoyable as possible! All was spotlessly clean, with comfortable beds and great living and conversation areas. The owner was very prompt with his response to our reservation request, we received great follow ups and a detailed check in "package".

Thank you Shawn for the wonderful bottle of wine that awaited us! We would recommend your "Home within a Vineyard" to anyone looking for a unique and special place with no worries "attached"!

Exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Shawn's house and have only good things to say. From the time we expressed interest in the property, Shawn was incredibly responsive, warm, and engaged, and that continued throughout the entire process. When we arrived at the property, we were blown away by the beauty of the home and its surroundings - the vineyards, the gorgeous landscaping, the amazing Redwoods. The home was clean and well-maintained and had all the amenities you could ask for (including small details like tissues in all the rooms, a first aid kit, toiletries and paper products, etc.). It really felt like we were guests in Shawn's home! We especially enjoyed all the things for the kids - books, toys, places to sleep, dinnerware, etc. All we needed to bring was ourselves and clothes. The decks and patio furniture were wonderful and were the perfect place to host family dinners (note: the kitchen was equipped with EVERYTHING we needed to cook, serve, and enjoy meals).

I would - without reservation - recommend this property to anyone looking for a relaxing and peaceful vacation in the countryside.

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!
