About Andrea Chevalier

I travel between Sayulita Mexico where I have two vacation rentals, my business, and Connecticut where my mother and family live. I feel so lucky to have the options and choices I have and wish to share them when I am not there to enjoy and appreciate them myself.

Andrea Chevalier purchased this house in 1999

Why Andrea Chevalier chose Russian River

This wonderful spot has been my home for the last 14 years, I have seen Healdsburg grow from a small farming community to a chic vacation spot in the best of Wine Country. I think Dry Creek, Alexander Valley and the Russian River Appellations are the best in Northern California, and I have a special spot there that I think you will enjoy as much as I do.

What makes this house unique

I love enjoying the hot tub on the deck under the redwood trees, watching and listening to all the birds that visit my feeders and garden. The sound of the fountains, the perfumed air of jasmine, mock orange and other blooming flowers are very soothing and relaxing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Andrea,

Thanks for the notice about the security deposit. We so enjoyed our stay at your home and in Healdsburg. The house was perfect for the 2 couples and it's location to the wineries was very convenient. We all thought that the house was well taken care of and we appreciated the fact that the kitchen was so well stocked with dishes etc. We enjoyed the hot tub almost everyday and loved the view from your back yard. Overall, I don't think there were any negatives about the rental.

Thanks again for helping to make our visit to wine country a pleasant one, and I would definitely recommend your rental to others. Hope we have the opportunity to connect again....

With warmest regards, Debbie

A local's opinion

  • 5 of 5

We had reason to stay at this property for two months this winter. The property is very comfortable and quite inviting. It is not ultra impressive in the Ohhhhhhh sense, but is cozy and heart-warming in the ahhhhhhh sense. We would gladly stay here again in the future.

The location is quite convenient to the Healdsburg and associated wine regions that surround it. It is located above a main road serving Fitch Mountain, but is sheltered with elevation and a just-right fence that blocks much of the traffic noise without diminishing the views. With a southern exposure, it gets good light throughout the day. The beds, though not kings, were quite comfortable. Andrea, the owner, was always pleasant and very accommodating. Don't expect modern top-of-the-line kitchen or baths, but do expect to feel right at home. Not breath-taking, but stress-taking...

Couldn't have found a more beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

My 96 year old mom, standard poodle and I were so fortunate to be able to spend two months in Andrea's beautiful home. We were so comfortable here we really didn't want to leave. We enjoyed many cool summer mornings and evenings sitting on the peaceful back deck watching the birds, squirrels and deer. We went to the plaza is the mornings to walk our dog and people watch or in the evenings we would go and have an ice cream cone from Noble Folk. Healdsburg is such a cute town and Andrea's home is in the perfect location. This is a vacation home you will not forget.

Coming back - soon!

  • 5 of 5

We were SO comfortable in this home - perfect location and the view of the mountains was an added plus. It was so relaxing to sit out on back porch. The house was so clean. Healdsburg is an adorable town. We have been to the wine country a number of times though this was the first time that we spent a whole week there. We would most definitely stay in this home again and have already recommended it to others.

Amazing HOME!

  • 5 of 5

The location of this wonderful home is fantastic! (definitely a home and not just a house!) Close to the

town centre, yet feels like you are in a country oasis! The property is even more beautiful than the

photos; the yard, deck and hot-tub areas are fabulously private, beautifully furnished and well maintained. The interior is also wonderful with many different options for seating / dining. The kitchen is actually a cook's kitchen and more than fully equipped - the best "rental" kitchen we have ever been in!

We will definitely be back to enjoy again!

Quintessential Wine Country Experience

  • 5 of 5

We belong to several wine clubs and have been visiting Healdsburg for several years now. It's always been enjoyable, but this home is very special and we had our best stay in the area so far thanks in large part to this amazing property. This warm and inviting home is absolutely spotless with nice supplies in place for cooking and relaxing. The gardens, plants and overall groundskeeping were perfect with sweeping views of the valley and complete privacy us city dwellers cherished. Proximity to the square is very reasonable and easy to access. We originally hadn't planned to do much cooking but found this house so lovely that we elected to grill a few dinners and eat breakfast on the beautiful back patio instead of going in to town. This place feels like you've been invited to a close friend's beloved home to stay rather than a vacation rental. The owner was responsive and made us feel very welcome. We would definitely return in the future!
