Santa Rosa house description

BEGINNING IN NOVEMBER, THROUGH FEBRUARY! FORTH NIGHT WILL BE FREE (not including holidays or events)!! We are just 5 minutes from the wonderful LEDSON winery and castle, perfect for picnics and wine tasting. Please read our reviews, they speak for themselves! This home is perfect for mature couples, families with kids, multifamilies, reunions, or an adult retreat. With 4 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms, this luxury 2900 square foot home is located in a quiet neighborhood, on a hill-offering beautiful mountain and distant vineyard views. The accommodations will fit 6 people comfortably, and accommodate a maximim occupancy of 8 adults. The house is only five miles from the heart of Sonoma Valley wine country, with famous wineries including Ledson, Kunde, St. Francis, Matanzas Creek, Chateau Souvreign and Paradise Ridge. Our home is conveniently located near the highly regarded scenic Highway 12, which will lead you to Kenwood in 5 minutes, and Sonoma Square in 25 minutes. Each guest is greeted by a personal concierge who will answer any questions you have about the house and your stay and will offer a chilled bottle of wine upon arrival!

Our gourmet kitchen is well loved by many of our past guests (see reviews). We have Thermador professional grade cooktop, a convection oven/ microwave, plus two additional ovens, two dishwashers, and a subzero refrigerator. The kitchen is beautifully apppointed with granite counters, brazillian cherry cabinetry and maple hardwood flooring throughout. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the basic cooking ingredients, spices, oils and utensils. Perfect for those of you who enjoy cooking. In the bedrooms where each room is themed, you will find European Cotton, 500 thread count sheets,(We received tons of compliments about how comfy our beds are) and iPod docking stations/alarm clocks. In each bathroom, we have wine country soaps, lotions, as well as Shampoo and blowdryers. The Master Bedroom, with dark hickory wood flooring, and beautiful artwork, has double french doors opening to views from both sides of the room, with a bathroom that has a double head shower, a large 2 person soaking tub and heated tile floors.

We have a play structure for the kids, and 2 outdoor eating areas to seat 6-8 people. One is a BBQ area with views off the deck, the other is a relaxing gazebo area. The house backs up to Howarth and Annadel parks, as well as Spring Lake, which are sought after by the locals for challenging mountain biking trails, with great areas for family walks, hikes or jogging. You can also rent Kayaks at the park and Kayak through the lakes. For those with kids, you can walk to the park in minutes where you will find a train ride, carousel, horse back rides, and a petting zoo in the summer months. Less than a mile away, you will find a quaint plaza with Mary's Pizza Shack, The Union Hotel Restaurant, The East West Cafe (which serves a great breakfast), and an old fashioned movie theater. Further down, you will find Montgomery Village with its fabulous coffee shops, restaurants, a yogurt parlor, and unique shopping. For those who like to walk, you can walk to Union Hotel restaurant (awesome Italian food), a yogurt shop, and a starbucks-- less than a mile away.

The house is perfect for anyone who appreciates electronics. It is equipped with an amazing indoor/ outdoor sound system (dock your ipod, or use our ecclectic CD collection) that can be heard at the BBQ area and Gazebo; as well as throughout the house. We have a Bluray player which will allow you free access to Pandora Radio, and you can listen to virtually any type of music. Each area has it's own volume control, so rooms can be turned up, down, or off, to tailor to your personal preferences. House has 3 Tv's, 2 of which are brand new high def, and 3 dvd players.

Be sure to enjoy our amazing and private tree lined hot tub with a glass of wine, at the end of those longs days of sightseeing! We even have a couple of robes to snuggle up in.

For those of you big city folks, San Francisco is an hour south, and Bodega Bay ocean with it's gorgeous coast line is just 35 minutes from here. There is so much to do! Use this home as your headquarters to all of Northen California wineries. We are close to EVERYTHING!!

Please remember that if you would like me to assist, I can arrange a limousine wine tour of the closest wineries, as well as an in -home massages, or...private catering. I have reliable and wonderful connections in these areas and would love to help you plan that special weekend! I can also arrange daily gym passes to a fitness club if that is your desire.

We have a limit of 8 people per visit due to the common courtesy of our neighbors, so no large parties, or receptions.

                      Numerous wineries just 5 minutes away, including Ledson, and Kunde. Close to Glen Ellen, and Kenwood, giving you access to even more amazing restaurants and wineries. There are several restaurants, and a starbucks within less than a 1-mile walk. We are only 25 minutes from Bodega Bay, and an hour from San Francisco. Use this home as your headquarters to Napa, Healdsburg or Calistoga, each of which would be less than a 45 minute drive from this house.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2002

                      About the owner: My husband and I moved to Santa Rosa, in 2002, and immediately fell in love with this house. We enjoy being right in the middle of wine country, with all its nature and beauty. We began raising our kids here and chose the home because of all the nature around us, its proximity to the beach and Annadel park reserve, San Francisco and of course very easy access to all of the regions beautiful wine country.

                      Why the Owner Chose Santa Rosa:
                      In 2011, we began travelling for my husband's work, and decided to make this a second home. Later, we decided to turn this into a vacation rental. We are very customer service oriented, and flexible. We care for this home greatly, and focus on renting to responsible people. Someday, we want to move back to Santa Rosa to retire. Converting our home to a vacation rental has allowed me to somewhat fulfill my dream of someday owning a bed and breakfast!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      I love going for a run through Annadel park, then coming home, and putting on my favorite music to play on our awesome indoor/outdoor sound system.
