5 BR/4.5BA/Sleeps 8 adults, extra children possible

IN MEMORY OF OUR BEAUTIFUL VILLA SANTA ROSA: We are sorry to announce that our beautiful Villa Santa Rosa, where so many of you experienced wonderful times with family and special friends over the past ten years, was completely destroyed in the early morning hours of Oct. 9, 2017, in the Northern California wildfires, along with thousands of other homes in our neighborhood and beyond. We would love to hear from any of you if you would like to share your special memories with us. Just write it in a general "no dates" inquiry. We hope our home and our beautiful hummingbird gardens stay in your memory forever, as it will in ours. For those of you who never got to experience the beauty of our home and gardens, I am sorry we never got to meet you!

SEEKING FAMILIES, GROUPS OF ADULTS, SHORT or LONG-TERM EXECUTIVE stays. DISCOUNTS for ONE WEEK or more!

Enjoy an over-sized whirlpool corner tub for two looking out over city lights at night, in your over-sized bathroom with a separate shower with spa jets for two. Surround yourself with the luxury of travertine, marble, and glass tile, with antique lighting. French doors in your bedroom lead out onto the huge round balcony, with access to the gardens, pool (heated in high season only, though you can use it year round), hot spa (open year round), and gazebo below. Upper master has private 13' balcony with mountain, valley, and city-light views, and extra indoor sitting area with views. House has 2 complete large master suites (bring your parents or best friends!). There are 2 smaller bedrooms downstairs, each w/queen bed and private exit to balcony and pool/spa area, shared bath with deep whirlpool tub/shower, and a smaller Victorian suite upstairs, w/queen bed, gas fireplace, and private glass-tiled en-suite bath (Victorian slipper tub w/shower).

CHAMPAGNE AND CHOCOLATES: We welcome you with champagne, roses, & chocolates, or help yourself at the wet bar or the Victorian bar in the parlor right outside your room. Go down for a relaxing swim or a hot spa at our jungle-style pool (heated in high season only, but can use year round) or take a glass of wine and sit among the morning glories in our formal, fragrant rose and perennial gardens, and watch as dozens of hummingbirds zip right over your head. We call our garden 'the Aviary.' Watch the hawks soar on the updrafts over the Open Space wooded canyon. Goldfinches, doves, and dozens of other wild birds crowd the feeders. Listen carefully, and you'll get to see one of the many wild quail families that live on our property. At night, a chorus goes up from the tiny tree-frogs that populate the pond. There are places to sit and take it all in everywhere. Our gardens are user-friendly!

Grill a succulent feast on our lovely 'Romeo and Juliet' style arched, covered upper loggia, right off the kitchen; sit around it's outdoor gas fireplace and play your guitar (acoustic only, please, no outdoor amplified music).

We even have a wonderful professional photographer (voted Best in Petaluma) who will come preserve your memories! Come enjoy the luxury!

NEW: Want a special dinner cooked for you at home? Try one of our fabulous recommended private chefs, who will create an incredible 5 course meal including delectable homemade desserts, while you enjoy hanging out and relaxing with friends, at a very reasonable price. They will also do very special breakfasts, or even a cocktail party (no extra guests, please). They do all the shopping, serving, and cleaning up, too!

PRIVATE WINE TASTINGS: We have two to offer. First, sample some of the richest reds you've ever had (some whites) with winemaker Bill Wertzberger, who will do private tastings only for our guests! You will meet Bill at the wine cellar out in the lush Dry Creek Valley, one of the most beautiful wine valleys around. OR, if you prefer, Sabrina Krauss, our wine concierge, will come to you at the villa, serving up an eclectic collection of boutique winery reds and some whites. Why stress about driving? Sabrina has served me all of the best wines I've ever had; she really knows her stuff. She can also get you anything you find at other wineries, and ship it to you for less than most wineries (do NOT ship wine yourself - you'll pay a premium!). Let us set you up with an appointment for Bill or Sabrina, or both!

MASSAGE: Let us help you arrange a relaxing massage right at the house, about $75 and up for 75 minutes. Mishi gets high marks from our guests who have hired her, as does Liza! Hire them both!

WINE COUNTRY DRIVER: Donna of Donna's Wine Country Chauffer has been ferrying our guests for many years, for a very reasonable hourly rate. Donna knows all the wine roads and YOU set the itinerary, going wherever you want, for however long you want. Just ask us for her number.

And how about photos to remember your special time with family or friends? We have one available, voted Best in Sonoma County. Just ask.

About Maureen and Kevin

Hi, we're your hosts, Maureen and Kevin. We have lived in Santa Rosa for 25 years and 30 years. We know you'll fall in love with the natural beauty of our area, as we have: the soaring redwoods, the wild, rocky coast, and the miles and miles of green, rolling, oak-studded hills and vineyards. We enjoy meeting people from all over the United States and the world, and doing everything we can to make sure that their vacation in wine country is the best ever, from buying a birthday cake to making reservations at the best restaurants, to arranging drivers, chefs, and masseuses, or even a private wine tasting right at the house!

Kevin and I spend nights only in caretaker's studio, no shared walls, in case you need us. We are there nights only, and your privacy is respected.

Maureen and Kevin purchased this villa in 2007

Why Maureen and Kevin chose Riebli-Wallace Neighborhood Group

We did not buy it, we built it, not as a vacation rental, but as our family home, while our daughter was in high school. We planned out every artistic detail of our villa ourselves; it is truly a house like none other. Kevin and I still live at and enjoy our beautiful property and gardens, in our caretaker's studio (no shared walls), to ensure our guests have help at their fingertips. We are there nights only and have our own approach and entrance; your privacy greatly respected.

What makes this villa unique

A special place for families, and extended families to reconnect. Children are very welcome, as are groups of older and senior adults. Also, we are looking for 1-3 month (or 2-3 week) executive stays. Contact us if you are in need of high end corporate housing for short term.

Stunning property and caring owners

  • 5 of 5

Stunning property and caring owners. Tragically, this beautiful home was destroyed in the fire that ripped through Santa Rosa and Sonoma County. We owe Kevin and Maureen our lives. Can't ask for anything more than that. Once they rebuild, should Kevin and Maureen decide to rent again, we will absolutely stay as their guests.

Owner's Response: This is the first review that ever made me cry (and the last review that we will ever receive). In fact, even the fire and the loss of our beautiful villa did not make me cry. But your review really moved us. We are so glad we could be there to wake you, and that our daughter and her roommate called and warned us. (This is certainly an upside to being onsite owners!) We have never felt so close to guests, and we only met you on that harrowing night for the first time! I am sorry about the way you had to leave, and that we had to "kick you out" in the middle of the night! We hope you always remember the beautiful Villa Santa Rosa. Thank you so much for the BEST last review any VR could ever want. Maureen and Kevin.

Even better in real life

  • 5 of 5

I've rarely stayed in a house or hotel that turns out to be even better than depicted in photos. This was one of those places. It is huge, spotlessly clean, nicely decorated, and the pool and garden is amazing. The whole pool experience (we spent the whole day it in) is great. Plenty of sun or shade, beautiful mature plants, plenty of places to was just so nice. I sent my friends photos throughout the day and they asked, "Where are you, Europe?" The views of the valley are lovely.

To manage your expectations: Do be aware that this is in a suburban neighborhood. The lots are very large and there is open space adjacent to the house but this is not out in the middle of nowhere. You can see and be seen, hear and be heard, so there are limits on noise etc. Some of the bedrooms are very bright, so if you are sensitive to light you might want to bring a mask. The owners do live onsite in an attached unit with windows that overlook the pool. We felt a little self conscious about this lack of privacy at first, but the waterfall going into the pool provides great white noise, so we felt comfortable having personal conversations without worry, and they never intruded.

I would absolutely rent this house again.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much, we are so glad you enjoyed the grounds, gardens, and pool/spa so much, and the house too! I would like to stress that our studio has NO shared walls with the house. We are across a balcony from the main house, beneath the garage, not the house, with air on the other 3 sides; we cannot hear you unless you yell. Each bedroom has either light blocking drapes, or pull-down shades w/lighter curtains. Some rooms are darker than others, but all have one or the other. If you don't like the light that comes in around the edges of shades, a mask is a great idea! While we don't promise complete privacy, I should have made clearer that we are never home in the day, when we are rented, so there was no reason to worry. We work 17 miles south in Petaluma, 7 days/wk; we leave by 9 a.m., and do not return to our separate studio until 9:30-10 p.m., sometimes later. Your conversations are private, with or without the waterfall. The view of our pool/spa area is 100% blocked from the house across the canyon by a long thick row of 40' tall Redwoods, and our tropical palm pool backdrop. The view of our other neighbor, when they are down in their yard, is completely obscured by thick morning glories and climber roses on our shared fence. They are the only neighbor who could see into the pool area, & only from their upper balcony, not their yard, and even that is blocked by many large, strategically planted trees. The fact that we have an owner's studio onsite is clearly stated in our ads and the contract, but it says we are there "nights only." We do have noise restrictions (clear in our ads and contract), as do all responsible VR's, out of consideration for others. We are not in a development. Ours is a Private Lane, with only 5 owner-built houses on one acre lots (each one completely different, and ours is unique) on the lane, an empty hillside across the street, and legal Open Space lands (a long wooded valley) bordering our long back fence. At twilight, you can watch for deer, quail families w/babies, hawks, and other wildlife from our yard, or from the living room/bedroom windows above, looking out over the Open Space. You can hear coyotes sing at night, and many nights it's hard to hear each other over the chorus of frogs in our pond. While you will have the feel of a country property, and plenty of privacy (we're not home!), you will also be a short drive from great restaurants, wineries, shops, and all the major wine roads.

Stunning vacation home - great for families!

Amazing home

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for renting your beautiful home to us. There are many things near by and Maureen was great about giving us little tips on things to do on our trip. I highly recommend Rob Vidal if you would like to have a chef come in. He and his wife were great to us and the food was amazing. We also went to trattoria for dinner one night and we're treated like family. There were plenty of pool toys there for everyone to hang out by the pool and there are strawberries and grapes growing that you can pick and eat. Thanks again Maureen and Kevin

Owner's Response: We're so glad you came and enjoyed it so much! We're also glad you got some strawberries and grapes before the quail and their babies got to them! And yes, Riccardo et al at Trattoria Cattaneo's treat all our guests like family; it's such a fun place! Please come again. Maureen and Kevin.

Beautiful house, fabulous location! Perfect for my 50th birthday celebration!

  • 5 of 5

We found Villa Santa Rosa after our reservation with another VRBO was cancelled by the owner. We have to say staying here was an upgrade! From the first time we emailed and spoke with Maureen she was friendly, helpful, and accommodating. The house is gorgeous, yet comfortable, and the yard and view is incredible. The pool and spa were relaxing and perfect for our family party and get together for my 50th birthday! Thanks for saving the day!

We are located in the hills above Santa Rosa, in the heart of Sonoma County, 10 min. from downtown Santa Rosa and just a short drive to hundreds of fine wineries and about 45 min. from San Francisco and the beautiful Sonoma Coast. The quaint towns of Healdsburg, Calistoga, and Sonoma are nearby, with their many fine restaurants, art galleries, and pampering spas. We are ten min. south of the Dry Creek Valley on Hwy 101, 20 min. from Calistoga (Napa), and 10 min. north of the Sonoma Valley. Or just relax at the villa and enjoy our English-style 'hummingbird' gardens from the many benches and gazebos around, with literally hundreds of birds zipping around the flowers and flowering trees. You may even see a wild hawk soaring above the open space valley we back up to. At night there are city lights, and by day there are views, views, views!

Other Activities: Walk in the Redwoods along the Russian River (or canoe through them!), go wine tasting in the gorgeous Dry Creek, Alexander, Sonoma or Napa Valleys, or take a jeep tour through Safari West, among African animals, sipping wines or enjoying a ranch style feast afterwards. Taste champagne at Korbel Champagne Cellars on your way out to our beautiful wild coast, then circle back south for seafood in Bodega Bay, and check out the little antique and treasure shops in the towns of Bodega and Sebastopol.

Golf: We have several golf courses nearby. There is the Fountaingrove Country Club, the public Bennet Valley Golf Course, and the most beautiful one of them all (though only 9 holes): Northridge, out under the Redwoods on Hwy 116, about 20 min. away, on the road to the coast. Golf beneath the giants.

Ski: We are three hours by car from Tahoe, with it's many ski lifts, and 5 hours from Yosemite (for summer sightseeing). If you don't feel like driving that far, our beaches are only 35-40 min. away and beautiful any time of year! (Too cold to swim, though, bring a picnic or a fishing rod!)
