Sonoma house description

Our spacious well-appointed 2700 sq. ft. 4 bedroom home will make your vacation dreams come true. It is located on 1.5 acres in a private community at the top of the hills west of Sonoma, and sits 1300 feet above the valley floor. It is surrounded by mature Oak and Bay trees giving you beautiful wooded views from every window. There are sweeping views of the hills and the south end of the Sonoma valley, the Carneros wine region and the north end of the San Francisco bay waters. Our hills are bustling with deer, wild turkeys, squirrels and many, many species of birds. Our guests say that our house feels like a '5 star' hotel: that’s exactly what we’d hoped. As you enter the front doors you are greeted with the warmth and welcoming feel of this home. There are neighbors but with the beautiful mature vegetation you can’t see other houses. You will feel like you’re in a world of your own. We are 5 miles from Sonoma’s central square where there are world class restaurants & shops.


More About Us: Our kitchen has always been a favorite gathering spot. Lots of counter space, a great expanse of windows, a fireplace and our “pub” table all provide the perfect atmosphere. Our spacious dining room lends itself to romantic dinners or upbeat gatherings.

The living room and sunroom overlook our large deck and the expansive views of the valley and distant mountain ranges. The morning sunrise is spectacular. If you prefer to sleep late, just grab a robe and enjoy the valley views with your first cup of coffee.

The Sonoma valley is known as the Valley of the Moon. There is nothing more breathtaking than the big orange moon rising over the hills in the evening and flooding our deck with its glow. You’ll have a bird’s eye view.

Our Bedrooms are Inviting: Each bedroom has a personality of it’s own. Every bed has a down feather comforter to give you warmth without the weight and down feather pillows that will perfectly adjust to your preferences. All bedrooms have additional seating that will give you comfortable places to get-away from the group if you need a quiet time to talk or read.

The wine country is a destination in itself: add to that this really terrific house and you have the perfect combination.

                                Perfect in every way! The Pepperwood Place property exceeded our expectations. We were a group of 7, my husband and me, plus our 2 teenage sons, my in-laws and brother-in-law. The views are fabulous especially from the decks and hot tub. There are very nice house robes for all and outside spa robes for all guests. New washer and dryer was a plus! The owner is professional and is very detailed oriented. I would stay here again. Book it!

                                From Looking for a place to celebrate our "75th" bdays to 5 "High School Friends" staying 1 week at this comfortable, clean and beautiful location the process was above average. The owner, Karen, was always available to answer questions, help with minor issues (it was cold our third evening and we couldn't find firewood. It arrived very quickly. We had fires every night thereafter and a few mornings. too). We had issues with the electronics (music, tv, etc.) All caused by 75 yr olds that have no clue about all the modern ways of doing things. Everything was fine once we walked it through. Try sitting in the hot tub after a long day of touring with your wine bought at amazing wineries. You can see the lights of Sonoma and western San Fran. Enjoy the sunrise every morning with your coffee on the huge deck wrapped in a blanket and watching the deer in the yard. Beds are comfy, linens top of the line, views from almost every room, What are you waiting For?? We will talk about it for a long time. A perfect celebration. Thanks, Karen for everything, Jacki, Va Beach, Va; Carolyn Tucson, AZ; Mary G The Villages, FL; Mary B Maplewood, NJ ; Janet Upper Montclair, NJ

                                Are recent stay at Pepperwood was everything we expected. Clearly the house was being looked after and we'll maintained. The house was well appointed, kitchen was well stock and easy to prepare food. With four couples we were concerned about space, however this house with its wonderful deck provided plenty of space and privacy for all. The only disappointment was the hot tub was not working. Certainly we will return to this property.

                                Owner response: I felt really bad that we weren’t able to immediately resolve the problem with the hot tub. It turned out to be simply an issue with the filters but it took 2 days and 4 service calls to get it resolved. On the second day of the renters stay I received a call saying that the hot tub was warm but that they couldn’t get the jets to work and they couldn’t turn up the temperature. I immediately asked our maintenance person to go up to the house and check it out. There appeared to be an electrical problem, so I sent up an electrician. He determined that the problem was with something else. Next came the “hot tub experts” and it turned out to be simply an issue with the filters. We ordered new filters and had it up and running properly the next day, but it wasn’t in time for this group. The guests were completely understanding about the situation, which I really appreciated, and as you see they still gave us 5 stars and said they’d come back.

                                Great home in an ideal location with incredible views. It was a pefect home for 4 couples and has a large kitchen for socializing in as well as cooking. Karen, the owner, was very accessible and quick to respond to the only issue we had. The house is very clean and the owner obviously goes to great effort to make it an enjoyable place to vacation. Hope to return to Sonoma again some day and stay here again.

                                I cannot say enough about this beautiful property! Our group consisted of 4 couples and this house was had absolutely everything we could have ever hoped for. Like most other reviews...we would visit wineries during the day but were all anxious to return afterwards to this amazing place on the hill with amazing views, privacy and so so much space. I would recommend this VRBO to anyone and everyone! I would very much love to return someday! Thank you Karen so so so much.... from all of us! We had the best time!

                                Our family spent 2 nights in this warm & welcoming home for our daughter's Sonoma wedding. Each room has such personal attention to comfort & detail, we felt right at home. We loved exploring the little touches that made us feel welcome, were greeted daily by the little deer family (note: they love asparagus fern!), lingered on the deck our last day for breakfast & mimosas with our new in-laws & told wedding stories. Every room is decorated with such care, all is spotlessly clean, hot tub on the hill most inviting (we never had time to use it, but plan to return some day!) & the valley view astonishng. We can't recommend this lovely home highly enough! Karen is delightful to work with, provided detailed notes & instructions, responded instantly to our questions & even let us stay beyond her normal check-out time. The kitchen is very well-equipped & even has decorative platters, bowls, dishes & cryatal - none of that "it's just a rental" feeling! We will return, we will return, we will return!

                                Our first time to the wine country and this house made our trip! It was great to hit the wineries by day then relax at this wonderfully comfortable house. We spent a lot of time on the deck, playing cards at night, and just enjoying the view with our coffee in the morning. We had fun with the games in the closet and actually tried some we had never played. The hot tub was a great addition and there were plenty of robes to go around. We were pleasantly surprised at all the amenities this home offered (including the waffle maker) and would recommend it highly to future vacationers. Thanks for letting us live in your home for a few days.

                                I stayed here for 2 nights with 6 of my girlfriends to celebrate my 40th. This home truly exceeded my expectations. It is comfortable and spacious. We ate dinner on the patio/deck which has a view of Sonoma that is simply breathtaking. The location is great for wine tasting - just minutes away from some incredible wineries. The jacuzzi is nestled up in the trees - very serene. It feels very rustic outdoors. While there, we saw a deer on the property looking through our bedroom window and a mother turkey walking by with several of her little chicks in tow. I'm already daydreaming about returning for another getaway.

                                We had a wonderful time at Pepperwood Place-- despite being up in the hills, was very conveniently located. The deck is just lovely, and the house was full of amenities- even including comfortable robes for guests- we felt right at home. The house was exactly as the pictures show- lots of space, beautifully tucked back into the trees overlooking the valley below. Such a wonderful place to be spending our girls' weekend in Sonoma. Would highly recommend this property to anyone! Thanks to Karen for being so helpful.

                                We had a wonderful week at Pepperwood. The views were spectacular, the house was immaculate. Plenty of space for us all to spread out. Everything we needed was on hand, even an assortment of spices! Located only 10 minutes from Sonoma, was ideal for dining out if we wanted. Most nights we stayed in because we enjoyed the house so much. We loved "A taste of the Himalayans". Time went by too quickly, we would definitely stay there again.

                              Year Purchased: 1988

                              About the owner: I'm a retired educator. I began my career as a public school elementary teacher, but soon discovered Montessori education and spent the majority of my working life in Montessori as a teacher, school owner, school administrator, college level instructor, and executive director of an international Montessori organization. Now, I'm happily retired.

                              Why the Owner Chose Sonoma:
                              I lived in this wonderful home for over 20 years and everyday I felt like I was on vacation. When I moved to Pacific Grove in 2006 I decided to turn my Sonoma home into a vacation rental. You will see from the reviews written by our guests that this is a special place.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              The house is nestled among beautiful old oak trees. The views are wonderful. The wildlife is every present. You can't help but relax when you're here.
