Overview

About the property

Villa, 3+ Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 7-10)

This large 3+-bedroom, 2.5 bath vacation home is located amongst beautiful redwoods, on the bank of Matanzas Creek, on a 26 acre property, all situated in the heart of Bennett Valley, in Sonoma County. Oak trees, redwoods, and 100 year old bay trees as well as Matanzas Creek surround the house. The 3000+ sq.ft. house was remodeled in 2008, and brand new high quality furniture and appliances make the place exceptionally comfortable and easy to use.

As beautiful as the inside is, the outside is incredible. The majestic redwoods and bay trees decorate the large 2000 sq.ft. patio adjacent to Matanzas Creek, all surrounded by year long green vegetation. In season various flowers adorn the whole environment. The patio in the front and the deck adjacent to the kitchen are generously furnished, ready for outdoor entertainment and cooking, with two large grills, four heat lamps and two fire pits. Finally, yet importantly are the trails, alongside the creek under the breathtaking trees.

The children will enjoy the toys, kids power wheels, the bicycles, the basketball hoop, as well as the play structure and swings which make the whole place a heaven for kids. They can also run around the trails, in the vineyard , up and down the trees and just have a great time.

The Vineyard: The 10 acre vineyard consists of twelve blocks of different varietals and clones. Each season brings its own charm and beauty to the vineyard. The buds start coming out in spring and in September when the leaves start changing colors, it is amazing to look at the majestic grape bunches hanging from the vines.

No pets.

Why Shawn Moaveni (Owner) chose Sonoma County

The vineyard is our second home, and we'll be glad to share it with others.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for opening your home and grounds to us. Our stay here at Moaveni Vineyard was absolutely delightful in every way. We enjoyed walking the trails, admiring the vineyard, and feeding the chickens, among many other things (oh, and the swing was so much fun). The attention to detail of both the house and the property was impeccable. One can tell the owners love their property, and this translates into a pleasurable vacation for those who appreciate both a beautiful landscape and the comforts of a cozy home. We will return again!!

A first class property!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at this home. The amenities were all above par and the location was perfect for our extended family. The grandchildren enjoyed playing with the bikes, balls and playground, while the adults were able to relax on the beautiful patio. We had fun watching the grape harvest and the turkeys that roam the area.

Shawn responded to all my emails within an hour or two. We had no reason to contact him while we were at the property. Although he had noticed the foosball game needed new balls so he dropped some off for us. We would all love to return for another stay. I highly recommend this property.

An outstanding home in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Moaveni Vineyards far exceeded our expectations. We were a group of family and friends, eight adults from four states who met up in Sonoma to celebrate my “special” birthday. The house was beautiful, equipped with everything we needed (and more) to make our stay wonderful. The inside was spacious, clean, well-maintained and comfortably furnished, but it was the outside we loved even more. Some of the things we especially enjoyed were: the fire pit (with plenty of wood to keep it going on chilly nights); the outdoor “kitchen” including a beautiful gourmet grill, sink and fridge; the magnificent views of the vineyards in the front; giant redwoods all around; wild blackberries and herbs ready for picking; the family of wild turkeys marching down the aisles of the vineyard every morning; the full moon poised between the redwoods; the chickens and the rooster crowing at dawn (OK – maybe not everyone appreciated the rooster); the beautifully landscaped gardens; the trails around the property. I could go on; the pride Shawn takes in his property is well-deserved.

As a property owner, Shawn was a pleasure to deal with. We had some trouble with our internet connection when we first arrived, but one quick call to Shawn resolved that. And he left us a lovely gift basket with coffee, chocolate and a bottle of his own delicious wine.

We were also pleased with the location of Moaveni Vineyards. It’s just a 10-minute drive to the delightful town of Glen Ellen, where there’s a wonderful market and some great restaurants (we really loved Glen Ellen Star). And we took Uber to Sonoma so we were free to enjoy our dinner at the girl and the fig with great wine pairings without the concern of driving back.

If there was one thing (just one thing) we could have used, it was additional bathroom space. The master bedroom with its en suite bathroom was perfect for one couple, but for our group that left 6 adults sharing the remaining 1.5 bathrooms. Overall, maybe that’s a small shortcoming for a home that truly lacks nothing else. I hope we have the opportunity to return soon.

Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What can I say? This home and property are WAY better than advertised! The setting is one of the most beautiful places that I have ever seen. Very secluded, peaceful and serene.

The home is immaculate and very well appointed. I have rented several VRBO homes over the past few years and none of them were as well stocked with the basic necessities as this one. It is very clean and livable. Lots of space and very comfortable. The outside living set up is really spectacular with huge trees, awesome decks on both sides of the house. Pathways around the property are very nice.

I cannot say enough good things about this property and the hospitality of the owner.

Way above expectations!

Breathtaking!

  • 5 of 5

This property is breathtaking. Rolling hills of vineyards and walking trails at your leisure to explore. We had such an amazing week of relaxation and reconnecting with the family at Moevani Vineyards especially with our children ages 17, 10, 9, and 6. The rule was no electronics for the week and no one complained or cared. We spent most of the day exploring the property, biking, playing basketball or other sports, or just playing tons of different board games outside in the front or backyard. Shawn was so easy going and a pleasure to work from beginning to end.

Spacious house stocked with everything we need, beautiful property, great location.

  • 5 of 5

Our two families spent several days here, cooking, relaxing, walking and playing. Our kids had plenty of entertainment between adventure walks, bikes and scooters and visiting the animals. Adults had many places to walk and lounge. Location is minutes away from Glen Ellen market, and 30 minute drive to Sonoma or downtown Santa Rosa. Beautiful relaxing property.

Amazing location with all of Sonoma County's best features- redwoods, views and vineyards.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were getting married at a nearby venue, and this was a perfect retreat where my family could stay and relax between wedding events. The owner was very attentive, and was available by phone whenever we needed anything. It was a very welcoming experience. The property is beautiful and the kitchen was well stocked. Lots of activities for families including bikes, ping pong, books and board games, as well as great outdoor spaces. I'd highly recommend Shawn's beautiful home to anyone looking for a vacation in Sonoma County!
