About the property

4 BR/4 BA Vineyard Retreat - Solar Heated Pool, Spa, Views

'Mona, a name given to the house by our daughter when she could not say 'Sonoma,' is a four bedroom/four bath home. The property includes a one bedroom/one bath guest house and is in the heart of Dry Creek Valley in Healdsburg, California.

Our vacation home sits on one acre nestled among the vines of Dry Creek Valley including its own vineyard on the property. It is surrounded on all sides by acres of vines, lavender and mountains. Please visit out new website (see below) for the complete information.

The house has a beautiful front porch running the span of the house. Four rocking chairs sit year round on the porch so you can enjoy the sunsets. The back yard has a covered patio, grill, outdoor furniture and new hot tub. As well, there is an in ground, solar heated pool. The pool has 2 shallow ends and stairs that run the width of the pool for in pool seating and has a locking automatic safety cover. A newly built covered porch sits at the end of the pool and has 4 lounge chairs and 3 end tables. There are two more lounge chairs below the walnut tree on the other side of the pool.

French doors line the front of the house from the kitchen to the living room to the master bedroom. There are three full baths in the main house - one for each bedroom. The master bedroom has a queen sized bed and gas fireplace, the second bedroom has a queen, 2 built in bunks and a trundle and the third bedroom has a very comfortable pull out couch (no bar in the middle!). All beds have high end linens.

The separate guest house is a large one bedroom with its own bathroom. There are French doors that open onto its own porch shaded by a walnut tree. Note: Guest house is rented with main house only, not rented separately.

The main living room overlooks the front yard, apple tree and vineyards. There is a fireplace, flat screen TV, directtv and DVD. There is a second TV with Directv in the third bedroom/sitting room. The house has WIFI as well.

The kitchen was remodeled with state of the art appliances; including a 6 burner stove. There are ample plates, glasses, serving dishes and kitchen tools for your cooking needs. The table sits 8 but has a leaf to expand to 10-12. The kitchen also overlooks the vineyards and the french doors lead to the porch where there is an outdoor table and seating for 8-10 over looking the vines and sunsets.

The property is surrounded by acres of Dry Creek vines, lavender, roses, and even apple trees, peach trees, and walnut trees. Just a short walk down the private country road is Dry Creek. It is truly a magical place.

About Heather Elder

We are a family of 5 that lives in San Francisco. We have homes in Healdsburg, CA and on Nantucket as well that we enjoy and rent via VRBO. We have been renting our home for over 15 years and have much experience doing so. We want our renters to feel at home when they rent from us and create the same special memories that we do when we spend time on the properties.

Heather Elder purchased this house in 2000

Why Heather Elder chose Healdsburg

The sunsets are magical and the pool spa like. Being in the vineyards makes you feel like you are miles away. We have created wonderful family memories here and hope you will too.

Amazing Weekend at 'Mona!

  • 5 of 5

We had a 'girls' weekend at 'Mona and it was amazing. Even though it was pouring on Friday when we got to Healdsburg, there was plenty of room inside (and covered porches) to gather and catch up. The next day when the sun came out we enjoyed the hot tub and the gorgeous grounds. Lots of places ie wineries, General Store to walk to or just hang out. The house was great and had all the comforts of home! I'd like to come back when we can use the pool ;) I miss hearing the frogs at night! SO fun! Two thumbs up!

Perfect Wine Country House

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at 'Mona couldn't have gone better. The house was perfect for our group and the location is great. Everything in the house is updated without losing any of the charm of the place. We can't wait to come back another time when we can use the pool!

Corte Madera


  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a girls' weekend getaway, and this place is absolutely perfect - pool & hot tub in the middle of a vineyard, fully stocked kitchen, tons of room and comfortable places to sleep. I can't think of anything that could have made our stay any better. We had a fantastic weekend, and we plan on making it an annual event here.

Beautiful place for a girlfriends getaway

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a place to host my best friend's bridal shower getaway in wine country. 'Mona was an ideal place — beautiful home set among vineyards with comfortable beds and a kitchen stocked with all the right pieces we needed. It was the perfect home to let our group of girlfriends unwind, recharge and enjoy the local wineries and restaurants. Loved the outdoor lounge chairs by the pool as well!

Slice of Heaven in Wine Country

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking to escape to the wine country but still be close to town & several popular wineries this is the spot. Well kept home tucked in the middle of Dry Creek Valley with nice furnishings and relaxed vibe. The hot tub was perfect to relax in during the crisp winter nights and I imagine the pool would be amazing during the warmer months. A quick walk gets you to the Dry Creek General Store for quick necessities otherwise it's an easy 5 minute drive to Healdsburg. Many tasty wineries nearby. Grab a new bottle, sit on the porch and watch the sunset. A little slice of heaven
