About Heather & Bryan
We live in the town of Sonoma, not too far from Guerneville and Elements. We lived in downtown San Francisco for the better part of a decade, and often spend summer weekends in Guerneville and Sonoma. We're absolutely thrilled to share our "home in the Redwoods" with you, a very special place. We've made numerous upgrades since acquiring the property in 2015. Our goal is to create a space that exceeds your expectations in every way. We ourselves make it up to Elements on a regular basis and love the serenity that abounds here. It's one of those places that you must visit to truly appreciate. We both work in the tech industry, but have found a calling in hospitality. We've been hosts on VRBO for over 8 years in San Francisco and Sonoma, having happily hosted hundreds of guests from around the world. Just as we love traveling the world ourselves, we love sharing what we can with travelers and hearing their unique stories.
Heather & Bryan purchased this Estate in 2015
Why Heather & Bryan chose Cazadero
When we first saw Elements it was love at first sight. You really have to visit to understand the feeling of serenity that surrounds you here. We live in the city, and while we've come to love the convenience of it all, we immediately appreciated that Elements felt worlds apart from all that hustle and bustle even though it was a short drive away - we knew it was a place that we wanted share with family and friends for years to come. The western part of Sonoma Valley has a much milder climate, which is why its ideal for the Pinot Grapes. This area has a blend of fine wines and great food, along with a unique environment with the Redwoods and the Coast. We think it's the perfect balance of what Sonoma County has to offer.
What makes this Estate unique
There is a tranquility and peacefulness to this place that feels unique and special. It's one of those things that must be experienced to be appreciated. The upper deck has this amazing energy about it - it's difficult to describe, but many of our guests have agreed they can feel it too. The views over the redwood forested canyon and the abundant sunlight is really all you need to reconnect with what it means to be alive. When was the last time you sat in a jetted hot tub surrounded by 100 ft tall redwoods? The experience cannot be missed. Be sure to check out our 500 year old "grandfather" redwood tree - this "dwarf" was among the few trees spared in the entire valley in the 1800s. The Elements features a chef's dream kitchen with a high-end Wolf® 6-burner industrial stove, All-Clad® cookware, microwave drawer, Keurig coffee maker, replete with all the small appliances, cups, glasses, and tools that any chef could ask for. And while you may be away from it all, you can stay connected at the Elements. With a fast internet connection and enterprise-grade wireless, you can stay as plugged-in as you want. Elements is also equipped with a variety of high-tech entertainment options, including a 55-inch curved OLED HDTV, a Sonos sounds system with speakers throughout the property, and Nest thermostats. Elements has a high-end cable subscription, replete with HBO, ESPN, Showtime, On-Demand Movies, and so much more. Additionally, the Apple TV has access to Netflix and several other apps and games. It's a great way to relax after a long day of exploring or wine tasting, or catch up on the game back home. Rain clouds in the forecast? Don't fret! Elements is also wonderful in the rain - the incredible Austin Creek valley is gorgeous, and you can hear the seasonal creek roar. We're also equipped with the latest technology to keep you warm and safe - the property is connected to a generator and high battery systems to ensure that you are never inconvenienced.

Wonderful property & space!
We stayed here for a long weekend with our three grown kids & their spouses. This was a perfect space for such a gathering!! A great time was had by all!
beautiful place up in the redwoods area. was a perfect place to take a break, only wish we were up during the summer as it got dark early during the winter. still a lovely quiet place for our family to enjoy the holidays together
This was our second year and we love it! Very lovely main house with a welcoming feel. Room for others to have some space. There are so many thoughtful touches in the house that I cannot begin to describe. Loved the hot tub! Went down to the ocean (Goat Rock Beach..not far at all) which was a lovely experience. Breathtaking views. Hoping we can reserve next year!!
A perfect getaway with every amenities!
Could not have asked for a better experience! Room to gather and room to spread out! Stayed in and cooked as a group, made some-mores, used the hot tub, played games.....totally enjoyable! Safe for a toddler. Luxurious and cozy! I recommend this fabulous little compound to any group wanting together time. Thank you to the very responsive hosts. Not a single negative thing to say. Everyone was very comfortable. Hoping to return next year!
