About Sandra Atwood

We are retired and enjoy living part of our lives in the wine country of Sonoma, part in Lake Tahoe, and summer and winter time near Deer Valley Utah. We are currently building a home in Baja. We own a small vineyard of Pinot Noir grapes which is on the Sonoma property.

Sandra Atwood purchased this house in 1995

Why Sandra Atwood chose Sonoma

Sonoma is a jewel in the San Francsico bay area.

What makes this house unique

Not only is it visually attractive, casually decorated, this single family house provides indoor/ outdoor living with beautiful views of the hills and the bay. You are conveniently located to all of what Sonoma Historic Town and Valley, and the surrounding San Francisco Bay Area have to offer while in a quiet picturesque setting.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Sandy-

We just wanted to send you a big THANKS for a beautiful, comfortable get away! We all enjoyed our week away from home, and it wouldn't have been so great without your hospitality, tips and recommendations for things to do in the area! We enjoyed your complimentary wine (delicious) we drank it at the Sonoma Farmers Market on Tuesday evening!

We ate at the Red Grape (great pizza), walked through the Armstrong Woods, took many walks up and around Kenleigh drive, enjoyed your fire pit outside and we enjoyed many of the wineries in this area (Chateau St. Jean was our favorite winery)! Attached we included some pictures of the 6 us enjoying Sonoma (the first one is us at the Sonoma Farmers Market on Tuesday evening enjoying your wine and the other is us at a winery in Napa called Hope and Grace, which we really enjoyed!

Sadly we will be leaving bright and early in the morning-what a perfect vacation home...



Thanks again!

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We don't have a large family kitchen, and all we wanted for Thanksgiving week was to relax in Sonoma and cook big family meals together every evening. This home was perfect in every way. We have never before stayed in a vacation home that was so completely and thoughtfully stocked for cooking, baking, grilling, and dining together, both inside the home and outside on the spacious deck. This home is very special, and we feel privileged to have been able to spend our holiday there. We hope to return very soon.

Spacious and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The house was open, spacious and spread out, likely a nice custom design, with incredible decorations. Sandy had instructions everywhere, and a kitchen stocked with condiments and most everything else a cook could need. The backyard was peaceful, opening onto the vineyard, with a backdrop view of the bay. Sandy was very easy to work with, and accommodating. We will likely return.

Nice home and good location

  • 4 of 5

I rented this home with 2 other couples and it is very spacious for 6 adults. Each of us had our own bedroom and bathroom which is what we were looking for. Beautiful outdoor area overlooking a private vineyard. Large kitchen with every imaginable kitchen utensil/tool for dining in. Overall, the home is beautiful. Unfortunately, we had to cut our weeklong vacation short, through no fault of Sandy. The disastrous fires that destroyed homes and businesses started after only our 2nd day there. The fires were as close as 8 miles away, air quality was awful and we were not able to golf or visit wineries because we were asked to stay inside, and because many businesses were closed, which is what I would have expected considering conditions all around. We decided to leave after the 3rd day, none of us were willing to risk being evacuated, or worse. However, Sandy did refund us for the unused portion of our rental for the week. We all hope to visit Sonoma and Napa again, and would consider renting this property again.

Owner's Response: Lisa I want to thank you for your nice review. I hope the lack of 5 stars was due to the fires. What a mess it has been. We are thankful that the house and the hills around us escaped any fire or smoke damage. We would be happy to have you back in the future at a 20% discount off your stay to compensate for your inconveniences. Sandy

This Sonoma home is perfection in every way!

  • 5 of 5

We have utilized VRBO for stays throughout Europe but this amazing home in Sonoma is now at the top of our list! The home is beautifully decorated and the grounds along their vineyard are breathtaking. Our group of six enjoyed several dinners on the patio plus coffee in the morning watching the hummingbirds play in the fountain. We will always be grateful to Sandy for the perfect setting for our 40th wedding anniversary!

AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

This wine country home was like a dream. From the gorgeous views of the vineyard down to the bay..to the best stocked kitchen..the many seating areas outside (the two chairs with ottomans being the fav) and the guest bedroom with outside fountain lulling me to sleep.. and the gardens..we did not want to leave. The attention to detail in the house, on the grounds and that view are unparalleled. Cannot say enough. Would highly recommend to any group of up to 6 people as the PERFECT place to stay

Sonoma Home

  • 5 of 5

This was the most beautiful home and surrounding scenery that I have ever spent time in. The home was absolutely perfect, with up-to-date bathrooms and fully stocked up-to-date kitchen. The outside of the home was picture perfect with vines and flowers. I would highly recommend this home to anyone looking to spend some time in Sonoma. We had a very delightful week.
