Napa house description

This stylish mid-century modern home was built on a spectacular 4.5-acre setting located in the hills between Sonoma and Napa Valleys. This is the perfect vantage point to explore both Napa and Sonoma. This villa is a fully licensed vacation rental in Sonoma (where vacation rentals are legal), located right in the heart of wine country, a short 60-minute drive from San Francisco.

This villa is convenient to Sonoma and Napa valleys. Two miles one way is the Sonoma Highway (Hwy. 12), a beautiful drive dotted with many wineries, such as, B.R. Cohn, Valley of the Moon, St. Francis, Arrowood, Imagery, Mayo, Wellington, Kunde, Kenwood, Ledson, and many others. On the Sonoma side you will find fun & lively restaurants and wine tasting rooms of the town of Glen Ellen (~2 miles), tasty restaurant and famous spa in Kenwood (~5 miles) or the historic town and restaurants in Sonoma Plaza (~9 miles).

Traveling the other way you reach Highway 29, the main scenic road through the Napa Valley ~8 miles away. In fact, many of the most famous destination towns in the Napa Region are close. Yountville, with the world famous French Laundry and Bouchon restaurants, is ~11 miles away; St. Helena, with its shops and restaurants is ~14 miles away.

This view-studded villa has so many amenities to entertain you, it is also a destination. Take a dip in your private idyllic pool, like a solar-heated lake amongst the trees. Spend hours playing bocce on your own private bocce court next to a picnic area with a view of your own private little vineyard. Test out that new recipe you have been dying to try in your own gourmet kitchen, with a professional wolf range. Dine alfresco while the sunset casts a warm hue on your amazing view of the “Valley of the Moon.” Or sip wine on the 1,000 square foot deck, with outdoor couches and a view to die for. Enjoy the stars from your private outdoor hot tub. On cold days, cozy-up to the modern fireplace after a long day touring wine country. Take in a movie on a flat screen TV.

This property is behind a private gate in a tranquil setting that cannot be seen from the scenic road on which it sits.

                              • This property is located in the heart of wine country, on a mountain pass between Hwy 12 (aka Sonoma Hwy) and Hwy 29 (the main road through Napa). Is well-located for views, and to visit two of the world's most famous wine regions - Napa Valley and Sonoma. It is close to Sonoma on a scenic ridge between Napa and Sonoma, overlooking the Valley of the Moon (aka Sonoma Valley). Two miles down the road is the quaint village of Glen Ellen, and the Sonoma Highway. Glen Ellen is the site of multiple fine restaurants and a high-end gourmet grocery store. The Sonoma Highway is part of a 17-mile stretch of wineries. Just to the North of Glen Ellen is Kenwood, just five miles away from the property and home to the world class Kenwood Spa and additional restaurants. A 9-mile scenic drive south leads to the historic Sonoma Plaza with restaurants, wine tasting, supermarkets, etc. If you head down the mountain in the other direction, you will find yourself in the Napa Valley, starting at Oakville, with Rutherford, Yountville and St. Helena just a few miles beyond. San Francisco Airport is about 60 miles away. There are plenty of activities nearby. Hike the scenic Overlook Trail, horseback ride, or even rent kayaks. ...moreless

                                We decided to spend our holidays in Wine Country. Well, what a place! Windows over-looking the valley, extraordinary sunsets, Redwoods all around, a pool that looks like a mountain pond, hot tub nestled in the Redwoods. It was spectacular! There are grape vines in vineyards both front and back. A winding rock covered path on the property. Just a little piece of heaven. We played Bocce ball on the lighted court. We hiked around the property and enjoyed wine tasting at the wineries recommended by Eric. We dined at several of the suggested restaurants, but we saved some nights to cook in the gourmet chef equipped kitchen. We just keep thinking of the “little piece of heaven" statement above. So very, very true with this great property...if we could give it 6 stars we would. We will be back! R & J

                                The reviews don't lie...this house is a find! It was so quiet and private. The views were spectacular and loved all the different outdoor seating and dining areas. We will have to return in warmer weather as the pool was gorgeous and inviting. We will also have to return to spend time just enjoying the place. The location between Napa and Sonoma wineries provided the perfect opportunity to get three full days of wine tasting in. Eric offered us some insider tips for winery visits which were helpful. He was very accessible and responsive.

                                My wife and I stayed here with two other couples and had an amazing time. As everyone has said the views are incredible. We had a beautiful view of the sun rising over the mountains and setting in the evening. You don't realize how many stars are in the sky until you view them from the deck of the house. Eric couldn't have been easier to work with as an owner. We contacted him about his thoughts on local restaurants as well as how long it would take to get there. He was great about providing suggestions (which were very good). If you are planning on making a lot of day trips to and from the house keep in mind it is a pretty winding road to get to the house.

                                My husband and I stayed at this property with two other couples. The views and amenities at the property are undeniable. While the drive up is a little steep, it is well worth it once you get up to the house. While staying at the property we grilled outside, played bocce, relaxed in the hot tub, and played games while listening to music. We also did limo tours in Napa Valley as well as a special dinner at French Laundry. The house is located in Glen Ellen, and the downtown area is located around 7 min from the house and is a great place to have a relaxed dinner and martini after a long day of tastings. The owners of this property are also very helpful and responsive to any questions or concerns we had pre-arrival. It is as good as it looks, so would not hesitate to book again!

                                We and two other couples recently rented this beautiful home for a four night stay in the Sonoma hills. I have to say, the beautiful pictures online were what originally drew us to this property and the pictures did not lie. The view from the top of the mountain surpassed even the amazing pictures of the home. My only regret is that we planned such a full schedule of things to do during our short stay, thanks to all of the invaluable information Eric so willingly provided when we had questions, that we didn’t get to enjoy the outside amenities to the fullest. While we did run into one small issue during our stay, which as everyone knows can happen during any vacation, Eric and Michelle bent over backwards to accommodate our needs, which allowed us to proceed with our vacation and still enjoy our long awaited getaway. If you want to rent a property with spectacular views, a beautiful home and owners who go out of their way to ensure you have a great trip, this one is for you.

                                Our stay at this home was wonderful. The views are beautiful and the sunsets are extraordinary. Since you are up on the mountain, you do not have any traffic noise. It was very peaceful. The house had all the amenities we needed and the kitchen was fully stocked. We were able to meet Eric and Michelle and have a glass of wine with them. They are extremely nice and strive to make sure the guests have the best time ever in their home. I would highly recommend this home - the location is perfect since you are between Napa and Sonoma. It has everything you could ask for - location, scenery, tranquility, pool, hot tub, bocce court, lovely furnishing and beautiful views.

We traveled cross counrty to share the celebration of our 40th wedding anniversary with family and friends and where thrilled.....But the BEST part was dealing with Eric- he coudn't have been nicer and informative......Thank you Eric....We do hope to return.....

                                Beautiful, clean, well maintained home with loads of amenities (Pool. hot tub, bocce court etc…bocce court is lighted for night time play, nice touch...). The location is great with quick access to both Napa and Sonoma wineries. Wonderful views from the large deck. My wife and I traveled with 2 other couples and the home was extremely comfortable for our group. Entertaining outside was awesome as well, with little to no bugs. The owner was very easy to contact and prompt with all communication. We received our security deposit back in less than a week. We highly recommend this rental,

                                It's a twisty, turny road to make the two miles from Hwy 12 up to this property, but it's worth every turn of the wheel. Gorgeous! Great views, a fine house, and a deck/pool/bocce court to finish it all off. There was hardly a major thing to improve upon this getaway. This is an excellent location to hit both Sonoma and Napa valleys. We dined in Glen Elllen, or shopped there and dined at the house, and played golf on the Silverado Trail. Our first day of vacation we hit the markets in the Marina District of San Francisco and sailed the Bay. Then we headed up to this tremendous house and had a great vacation. And we drank a little wine. Top notch.

                                Recommended for: Girls getaway, age 55+.

                              Why the Owner Chose Napa:
                              We live in San Francisco, but fell in love with wine country. After years looking, we finally found a home on our favorite road in Sonoma, between the Sonoma and Napa Valleys. We have always been fans of Mid-Century Modern Architecture. We fell in love with this home at first sight. We are avid users of vacation rentals, and this home gives us the opportunity to provide all the amenities we have found so inviting over the years. We hope you love our home as much as we do!
