About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.25 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This is a beautiful 4 bedroom home in the heart of Sonoma wine country. We're also situated on the 18th green of one of the premier pubic golf courses in the area with many other fantastic northern California golf courses in the immediate area. We're 5 minutes from the Russian River Valley, the Dry Creek Region, and the city of Healdsburg. Santa Rosa is only 10 minutes to the south. This is a great place to relax between wine touring, golfing, shopping, and exploring the nearby pacific coast. If you need the big city and impressive cultural life style, San Franscisco is only 90 minutes to the south along Highway 101.

This 2-story home includes a large private swimming pool with an integrated hot tub. The beautifully landscaped backyard showcases fruit trees and flowering plants and serves as a great backdrop for entertaining around the outdoor grilling center.

On the first floor guests will find a complete dining room, full-service kitchen with breakfast nook, and living room with gas fireplace. The four bedrooms as well as the laundry room are located on the second floor.

The spacious master bedroom allows for solitude in luxury. Guests can enjoy a soothing shower or relaxing bath in the jacuzzi tub while taking in spectacular views. The remaining 3 bedrooms have queen sized beds and share a full bath.

This house fulfilled a lifelong dream to create a haven in the wine country where one can escape 'reality'. We chose this house because it is surrounded by some of the finest dining, world class wines, and limitless outdoor activities.

About Barry Graves

I am a commercial general contractor living in Denver, Colorado. I now have the best of all worlds with a permanent home in beautiful, colorful Colorado and vacation home in the heart of the Sonoma wine country.

What makes this house unique

When I arrive at this Windsor, California home, a smile immediately appears on my face as I drive up Golf Course Drive and see the beautiful golf course that lies across the street from my destination. This course offers both challenging golf and incredible natural beauty with unique vegitation and wildlife.

Also situated adjacent to the golf course is a renowned restaurant called Charlie's that offers great food and an impressive wine list. Great opportunity to enjoy an nice meal and bottle of wine and take the 5 minute walk to the house along the golf course.

The two most impressive wine regions in the Sonoma Valley are only 5 minutes away. The Russian River Valley is only 5 minutes to the south and the Dry Creek region is only 5 minutes to the north.

If shopping in specialty shops that typify the region is your game, Healdsburg is only 5 minutes to the north and you will find many cute shops on the Square.

5 Stars Doesn't Do it Justice!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed at this beautiful house for a wedding and I have to say, wow. It's one of the most accommodating and gorgeous VRBOs that I have ever stayed in. The kitchen is fully stocked and operational. The property is expansive and beautiful. It sits in a quaint part of a very quiet neighborhood across the street from a visually appealing golf course. The pool is beautiful and the landscaping is very professional. It beats any of the local hotels by an incredible margin. I highly recommend this to your friends, family, anyone. Make sure you take advantage of the beautiful pool and be respectful of the neighbors. You won't regret booking this VRBO. Trust me.

A Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this lovely house for a girls getaway weekend, and had a blast! The house is beautiful and close to some fun places (i.e. ziplining in Occidental, downtown Santa Rosa, Bodega Bay). The pool/hottub was very popular that weekend, very nice and relaxing to soak up some sun and swim. I would highly recommend staying here!!

Very nice weekend house

  • 5 of 5

It is clear that the owner takes care in providing above and beyond for the benefit of guests. The house is maintained and has many conveniences that make you feel at home. The pool and backyard are especially relaxing and nicely landscaped. House was very clean and is in a very convenient area of town with golf course views.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

Great house! We had four couples and it was perfect for what we needed. Big open kitchen and living room, dining room and four bedrooms with 2.5 baths. The kitchen was very well equipped. The backyard was our favorite part. We spent a lot of time in the hot tub and hanging on the patio. The owner, Barry, was quick to respond and great to work with. I would recommend this house to anyone. We can't wait to go back in the future!

Amazing Wine Country Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of friends attending a wedding nearby, and this house was by far the best find compared to all of the rentals that other wedding guests told us about. Aside from the large, comfortable bedrooms and living areas, the air conditioning and pool were great features that other houses in the area lacked. The kitchen has all of the supplies you need for cooking your own meals if you choose. The house is about two minutes from 101, so it's really easy to get anywhere you'd need to go, but it's also very quiet. The owner was very responsive via email when we had questions leading up to our stay. All in all, it's a fantastic place and I can't recommend it enough!

Car: recommended

My home is located across the street from one of the best public golf courses in the Sonoma Wine Country. We are only 10 minutes from either the Dry Creek or the Russian River wine districts. You can be in downtown Healdsberg or Santa Rosa in 10 minutes. Beautiful bicycling roads throughout the area. You can be on the beach at Jenner within 40 minutes and 60 minutes to historic Bodega Bay.

The drive from the Oakland International Airport is made within 45 minutes. Napa Valley is only 45 minutes to the east. This is an ideal opportunity for wine lovers and outdoor enthusiasts.

Across the road from 18th green on the Windsor Golf Course.
