                        Our House is the perfect place from which to explore wine country. Great location, great property, and perfect accommodations for up to 6 couples. We recently stayed at Our House as a home base during Winter Wineland weekend. We were 5 couples from various parts of the US and had stayed on this property on a previous weekend getaway. The house is well appointed and lives up to the descriptions on VRBO which is too often not the case. The grounds are beautiful and we wished we were there when the pool and outdoor patio would have been of more useful. (Nice hot tub on site, too!) Our only wish was that we could have stayed longer. I would highly recommend this property as a base for wine country exploration or as a family/friends reunion.

                        In June of 2012 we stayed at Our House for about a week and a half for our daughter’s wedding at Arista Vineyards. The house was the perfect “home base” for friends and family who had come from around the country. We enjoyed it so much that we rented again for the New Year’s week of 2013-2014, and hope to do so again. The comfort and amenities are amazing, ranging from the beautiful swimming pool and hot tub to the extraordinarily comfortable beds and high-end linens. Fully equipped kitchens (two!), beautiful art and collectibles on display, gorgeous gardens, and many comfortable sitting areas indoors and out, help create such a homey place to hang out that one hardly needs to leave the grounds. However, the wineries beckon, including Preston Vineyards which is a pleasant walk away. Ideal bicycling roads are right at the foot of the driveway. And of course the spectacular Russian River Valley invites extensive exploration. The hosts, Jim and Viola, are a phone call away if you need them, and scarce if you don’t. Support staff is invisible, the wood pile is replenished, and the gardens are kept watered and tidy. The only hard part is leaving.

                        In September 2013, my family celebrated my daughter's wedding at Chalk Hill Winery. Seven of us traveled to Healdsburg from Minneapolis, Wisconsin, Chicago and Tokyo. Our House provided a wonderful home setting for our four-day stay. The views are panoramic vistas, the landscaping setting is lush. The bedrooms and baths offered privacy for each couple. The showers are modern and thoughtfully prepared for travelers. We were greeted by the owner, who showed us around the grounds and living space. The dining, fireplace and living room area and the outdoor terrace all contribute to a very inviting and casual lifestyle. The kitchen and pantry areas are well-designed and maintained for all styles of cooking and easy entertaining. We all agreed that our stay was more relaxing than a hotel stay, with a greater opportunity to experience the beauty and life of the vineyards and Sonoma. When you select "Our House" you are "in Sonoma."

                        We had such an amazing time here. The owners are delightful and very attentive people who keep the house and property in immaculate condition. The house and guest house are in great condition and decorated in an understated, elegant manner. Both are very comfortable! The house is furnished with all the kitchen gadgetry you would ever need if you are cooking in, and it's close to town if you are going out. Beautiful pool and hot tub, landscaping, patio, and barbecue. I would recommend this to anyone. Really a great spot

                        This is a great wine country house and the owners are super engaged and helpful. We spent a long weekend here (2 couples and 4 kids between the ages of 9 and 12) and the house was perfect. Everyone has their own very comfortable space (the main house has 2 bedrooms and the separate guest house has 4 bedrooms, including one that kids will particularly love because of the fun decorations). The pool is one of the nicest pools I’ve been in and has terraced stairs running the length which makes it great for kids and for adults hanging out with kids. The hot tub and pool were also both fully functional and in great shape (which has not always been our experience with all vacation rentals). The grounds are beautiful and feeding the fish in the Koi pond was a big hit with the kids. House is well located to fun vineyards (including Preston), Healdsburg and Geyserville. We will definitely be back.

                        Our House exceeded our expectations on all accounts! True to the website photos, it is a beautiful home inside and out. I was there with a group of friends to celebrate a 50th birthday. We have visited wine country as a group for the past 7 years and have stayed in other VRBO properties. This house is our favorite by far! The owners were very attentive and personal from the day we booked through the day we left. Upon arrival, the owner met our group and gave us a very thorough tour and helpful information which allowed us to fully enjoy the house. The large open kitchen and living room space was perfect for us. We enjoy cooking and eating in together and the kitchen is equipped with everything you need. The kitchen leads out onto a beautiful outdoor patio overlooking the pool and hot tub. It is a great space to hang out and enjoy the serene landscape and gardens. Coffee on the patio and an early morning hot tub became a ritual for us. So relaxing! One of the best things about this house, although perfect for a group, is that you can find a nice quiet place if you need some time to yourself. The bedrooms are very comfortable and spacious and provide the right sense of privacy without feeling removed from the group. The guest house is located a few steps from the main house and has its own kitchen which was a nice addition for those mornings when you wanted some fresh brewed coffee but didn't want to walk to the main house in your pajamas. And the location of the house is perfect for wine tasting! It is easy to visit a number of wineries within a few miles of the house. All in all we found the house absolutely fantastic and can't wait to stay there again next year. In fact, I'm not sure we will try to book any other house for our annual visit. We really loved it!

                        I just spent a weekend at this beautiful home in Healdsburg!! I couldn't have been happier. The grounds are breathtaking and everything was well beyond my expectations. The pictures do not do this place justice! Every detail of the home is thought out. The owners, Jim and Viola, are so welcoming and ensure everything is just right as you start your stay. This is hands down the best vacation home I have stayed in. A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
