Santa Rosa house description
The house interior: The great room includes the living room with fireplace, dining area, and the gourmet kitchen with a Viking range, a Sub-Zero refrigerator, and a Miele dishwasher. There are exposed beams; and the ceiling reaches 12 feet high. The three bedrooms in the house have very high ceilings, and are brightly furnished with a French farmhouse feel. Each bedroom is distinct. The spacious master bedroom offers views from the bed out the French doors and all the windows. Just outside the door is the pool and spa. The master bath has a shower with room for two, and a tub with a view. Big windows and a door out to a flagstone patio make this room bright, and open to views of the surrounding landscape. The second bedroom has a queen-size bed and a double set of French doors opening onto a deck with a view of garden and vineyard. The third is small and cozy, with a skylight and a double bed. A bathroom with toilet, sink, and shower is located between these bedrooms and the great room.
The Quinta: The fourth bedroom is a special, more rustic hideaway. It's up a stairway between rows of vines -- then up some stone steps and paths even higher to the Quinta. Here, a large flat area on the hillside above the valley has been civilized with a romantic white fabric tent-cabin and an expansive patio. A queen-size bed, tables, chairs, lamps, and a CD player make it akin to sleeping outdoors -- but with few of the disadvantages. Antique windows look out over a stunning view of the Sonoma Plain. At night, you can see the lights of towns and suburbs in the distance. On most days, you can see mountains on the other side of the valley, and the coastal sky beyond. With a small outdoor fireplace, the patio makes an ideal spot for gathering to catch the late afternoon rays or to watch the sunset and stars. A winding path leads to an indoor/outdoor bathhouse with an open-air, raised tub and a sunny shower. A colorful Mexican sink is sheltered from any rain by the tin roof.
Out and about: Just outside the kitchen door is a large ground-level deck with a charcoal grill, an herb garden, and a dining table and chairs. Market umbrellas and six lounges are available around the pool for relaxing in the sun. The flagstone terrace under an old redwood tree, some Japanese maples, and rhododendrons, also has plenty of comfortable outdoor seating.
The location has surprisingly easy access to Highway 101. There are many wineries in the area. The Russian River area, Petaluma, Santa Rosa, Sonoma, and Healdsburg are close by. And the Sonoma coast is within one hour. The Napa Valley is about 45 minutes away. Best of all, most of this travel is over beautiful back roads.

ReviewsWrite a review
A group of us (friends) stayed here October 5th-8th to celebrate a few of our wedding anniversaries. We had such an outstanding time here. The place is absolutely beautiful. The layout of the house is perfect for entertaining. The hot tub and swimming pool and overall outdoor spaces to enjoy were amazing. We give this place 5 stars (because we can't select more). We would all come back and visit again!

We have stayed here several times over the years. Talk about relaxing. It is the type of place that makes you just want to "unplug" and tune out. The yard is so beautiful, we rarely find ourselves indoors before sunset. The pool and hot tub can't be beat. As a person in the food industry, the kitchen is more than sufficient. There is also a charcoal BBQ. If you like to grill, don't miss Bud's Custom Meats. They have a great selection of sausages, meats and sauces. Oliver's in Cotati is a great grocvery store. We try to do all our shopping before arriving so we never have to leave. The Quinta is a bit of a hike, but never fails to be worth it. Bring a nice cold beverage (or 2) and enjoy the view. We have two dogs and they seem to enjoy themselves as much as we do. Be sure to check your dogs for tics after your visit. On our last visit, our 2 year old really started to enjoy the pool. We had a hard time getting her out. There isn't a fence around the pool, so you need to keep an eye on the little ones. Overall, we love this house and can't wait to return with some friends for a birthday weekend.

I have stayed here several times, both in the house and in the guest house, and will surely stay again. The pool is the centerpiece, with its surrounding rocks, gardens and lounging space. That being said, I have been there in the winter as well, with the fireplace roaring and the soup simmering on the stove. The house is remote, but not hard to find, and quiet for peaceful retreats and great sleeping. It has everything you might need (tv, stereo, etc.) and is fun and festive and comfortable.

My family stayed at this home for four days in Early Oct, 2006. The exterior of the home is beautiful, a lovely landscaped deck or patio outside each door but the interior upholstered furnishings are tired and worn. Walls need a fresh coat of paint. The homeowner has some lovely wood pieces such as side tables, interesting mirrors and the house was once top notch. Cleanliness was a big issue for us, as the home was filled with many, many cobwebs, so we were puzzled where the collected cleaning fee went to. The curtains which are in place of kitchen cabinet doors were very gray and dirty, from hands reaching into the cabinets. We also found out why the home is pet friendly, as the owners 2 cats were on site and difficult to keep outside. We thought pet friendly meant WE could bring our pet if we wanted to, not that we spent time with his pet. We are not allergic to animals and we have owned several pets, but the house definitely had a cat odor. We have rented several homes before and we were surprised to find that we were to share space in the refrigerator, bathroom and closet with the homeowners personal items. At the time we rented, the homeowner advertised a washing machine, but it was locked in the garage and not available for our use. He has since removed that item from the list of amentities after my complaint to him. The casita is very cute, also needed some cleaning, but it is a long, steep walk up to it,better left to younger (or fitter) people than myself! My adult children loved the casita and spent several evenings enjoying the patio with firepit. With a major, deep, thorough cleaning, some fresh paint and a few replaced furniture items, this home could again be top notch!

Owner response: This review was posted 3 years ago and it is the only negative response I've received. The two "tired" chairs have been replaced with new leather club chairs and the other living room furniture has been reupholstered. The great room has been painted. I cant guarantee no cobwebs.We try, but the house is in the country. The cats (now only one) were left there because the renter liked them and asked that they stay. They are able to open the screen doors and let themselves in. Now the cats always go with me when I leave. I've never been told of a cat odor. There is no cat box. Sparky goes outside. And there is now a washer and dryer in the house.
