House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Experience the perfect wine country get away for you and your family at a lush hidden oasis in the picturesque town of Glen Ellen, 10 minute drive from downtown Sonoma. Surrounded by specimen oaks, Japanese maples, kumquat, apple, persimmon, plum and pear trees, rose bushes, mature landscaping and long, level lawns, this 3,000 square foot single-level home situated atop two well-manicured acres will charm one and all. The estate is conveniently located just past downtown Glen Ellen, a 60-minute drive from the Golden Gate Bridge.

Enjoy warm summer weather in the beautiful back yard, furnished with heated in-ground pool, large hot tub, chaise lounges, umbrella table, patio area with wooden furniture, awning and a Viking professional grill, a wooden jungle gym, a basketball net and a 22 foot putting green with chipping area. The entire rear yard and pool area is fenced in for privacy and safety.

The interior of the house boasts a newly remodeled master bathroom with floor to ceiling marble, Jacuzzi tub, custom cabinets, stone floors and designer fixtures. The kitchen is chef-worthy yet family-friendly with custom rift white oak cabinets, slate floors, Sub-zero and Viking professional appliances and Viking microwave, concrete counter tops, refrigerated wine/beverage storage and an eat-in alcove with large bay window.

This is a very special place to relax and unwind and build precious memories. No detail has been overlooked and every toy or activity a child could want has been lovingly included. The home also features a collection of contemporary art. This is a family home at heart and is not available for use for parties, events or corporate gatherings.

Longer stays are required during holidays, including Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas.

No smoking. Maximum occupancy is 8 adults, no exceptions. 10 with children. Only 4 cars allowed at the property. Quiet hours are 10 PM - 7 AM. The pool is heated only from Memorial Day til the end of September. Sonoma TOT: 959N. Finally, I generally do not accept 2 night weekend rentals during the prime season, unless it is a week or so in advance and the home is not rented.

About Craig

We live in San Francisco and this is a second home that we have owned and lovingly renovated since 2000.

Craig purchased this House in 2000

Why Craig chose Glen Ellen

it is truly the most scenic area of Sonoma valley and walking distance to the quaint town of Glen Ellen and only an hour drive from San Francisco.

                                                        Mr BillFriendswood Tx

                                                        Beautiful home with interesting art collection , large rooms 3 bath, outside putting green and play toys, great for children having also a play set. plenty of parking nice pool and hot tub, Large Living with space and great TV.

                                                        Fantastic family friendly home

                                                        HEather B.

                                                        This is the place to go, particularly with small kids. Hours of enjoyment in huge, private fenced backyard with separate pool area and kids' play structure. Beds were very comfortable and outdoor furniture was especially so. Great kitchen set up with every possible tool and pan at your disposal. Adults not forgotten with putting green, hot tub and ping pong table, not to mention separate wine fridge, at the ready. 3 bathrooms allowed for each family having their own space. Only slight downside is that the 2 queen size bedrooms are linked by a pocket door. This space made sense for a couple with a small child, but that left the other couple sharing the bunk bed room with their 2 kids. Worked fine for everyone, but this set-up might not suit people without small kids. Having said that, met our needs beautifully and we would highly recommend this home. We happily spent 3 nights there, only leaving to get more groceries. Very private and safe property, and also close (10 minute) drive to historic downtown Sonoma.

                                                        Wonderful family vacation

                                                        OmamaSan Rafael, CA, USA

                                                        This property was absolutely perfect for our yearly family vacation. It isn't easy to find a place that is beautiful and yet comfortable for a family, grandparents to toddlers. The kids played safely in the completely fenced yard and the adults were able to enjoy the amazing art collection in the house, everything placed either on the walls or safely out of reach of little fingers. You could tell this is a house well loved and cared for by the family that owns it. I also enjoyed dealing directly with the owner in arranging our stay. I hope we will be able to return next year.

                                                        Great for Families!

                                                        Jamie B.San Carlos, CA

                                                        My husband and I, our dog, and 1 yr old rented this house for a week. Some of our friends and their kids came up for a weekend. It was fantastic for all of us! Plenty for kids to do with pool, hot tub, yard, and play structure. The grounds are just beautiful with various fruit trees all over. We would definitely stay here again.

                                                        Note that 2 of the bedrooms are connected with a pocket door. These are the rooms that are in what used to be the garage and they are right off the kitchen and laundry area and share a bathroom. The rooms are quite spacious and nice, but it is good to know the setup if you are needing to use all bedrooms in the house.

                                                        GREAT place to stay!

                                                        Bob C.Mill Valley, CA

                                                        We really enjoyed our stay here. Here are the pros: private location, beautiful grounds, nice patio area, comfortable home, fenced pool, fenced hot tub, good wifi, play house, ping pong table, golf putting area, loads of pool toys/floats etc for the kids. Here are the cons (which are minor): ice maker in refrigerator did not work (though I think this is being repaired), only half of the BBQ worked, built in espresso machine did not work, and alarm system did not work. I would have given this a 5 star rating if everything had been working properly.

                                                        Great Choice for a small family vacation in Wine Country

                                                        RyanSan Francisco

                                                        This was a great location nestled among wineries in the quaint town of Glen Ellen. The house had many amenities for young children and adults, including a amazing number of fruit trees. While we were there, figs, apples and plums were readily visible and ripe for picking. We had slight issues with the maintenance of the pool, putting green and patio, as these seem to be less well maintained than the interior of the house. Although we found it amusing and didn't mind our green friends, some guests might not appreciate frogs in the pool. Overall, a good place to spend the weekend with family.
