A perfect piece of paradise in the Wine Country

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Cherie's home and hospitality. I was looking for a getaway with my adult sons, and this property fit the bill perfectly. The rental is a sparkling clean, beautifully decorated, self-contained apartment below the main house. The area is stunning...vineyards everywhere...and this gorgeous property is perfectly situated to visit everything the area has to offer (wine tasting places are everywhere!!!) We packed a picnic lunch and spent a wonderful day kayaking nine miles down the Russian River (Soar Inflatables- Russian River Adventures in Healdsburg- be sure to make reservations well beforehand), and visited the Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve. We especially enjoyed the quiet evening we spent at Cherie's property barbecuing and relaxing under the stars in the huge Jacuzzi. Cherie was the perfect hostess and made us feel so welcome. (And we fell in love with her adorable dogs!) I will definitely be time for a romantic getaway with my husband! Thank you, Cherie, for sharing your lovely home with us.

This property is serene, beautiful, comfortable and charming.

My friend and I loved this VRBO. It was comfortable and quiet. The patio off the kitchen and bedroom was so sweet. The hot tub was right there, but of course summer is not hot tub time!

The location is perfect if you want relatively easy access to Healdsburg and wineries, but far enough away to escape to your own private, bucolic world.

I would so come again!

Quiet, beautiful, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My daughter (who just turned 21) and I decided to do a girl's trip to wine country. This property was a lovely way to do it. Situated 15 minutes from Santa Rosa on winding narrow roads, this is not a place to stay if you plan to visit wineries all day and overindulge without a designated driver! However, it is a gorgeous place to relax at the end of a long day exploring the area. We stayed at the Zin. The property is clean, well stocked and roomy, Cherie (who lives upstairs) and her little dogs are friendly and greeted us with a bottle of local wine. The sounds of the hummingbirds zooming around the feeders, a woodpecker knocking in the distance, butterflies and lizards rustling in the flowers, the sight of an occasional hawk overhead, and a cool evening breeze framed our conversation on the comfortable lounge chairs in the garden. Very close to beaches on the Russian River, and two wineries right around the corner. I would definitely stay again.

The Zin was nice and well equipped. Most furniture was comfortable and clean. Kitchen was excellent and easily accessible. Outdoor Patios and seating was nice with beautiful views of vineyard. A nice home away from home.

Peaceful setting with a kind host!

  • 5 of 5

Came up for Memorial Day weekend to enjoy the Russian River and last minute found this gem. The place was so peaceful, surrounded with a beautiful garden and access to a vineyard across the street for strolling. Cherie made us feel right at home, and even lent us some beach chairs and floats for hanging at the river. We really enjoyed this setting and hope to come back again soon. Thanks again, Cherie!
