Amazing views and house.

  • 5 of 5

Wine Country Escape is amazing! The photos online do not do even start to showcase this amazing property. The views and privacy are incredible. It's at the top of a ridge and there are exquisite views in all directions.

The house itself is beautiful and very comfortable. They have thought of everything! Comfortable beds and linens and every room is attached to a bathroom. The kitchen is a chef's dream. It is the most well stocked kitchen of all the houses I've rented. The doors that open to the pool keep the kitchen and dining area cool and comfortable.

I was concerned that the house didn't have HVAC, but it wasn't needed. The cool breezes on the ridge and the low temperatures at night kept the house very comfortable.

You will not be disappointed in any way with Wine Country Estate. It is one of the most amazing getaways.

Perfect weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We met five other couples there to celebrate my wife's birthday. It was the perfect gathering place with room to spare. Great accommodations with perfect balance of privacy for each couple and common areas for the group. We enjoyed it so much that we never left the property after doing some wine tastings on Friday. Views are spectacular. Make sure you schedule a private tasting with Chuck McCoy and tour his vineyard. Priceless! The property manager (Melanie) is on top of her game. Can't imagine a better overall experience.

Fabulous Views and Sunsets!

  • 4 of 5

Our group of 9 adults stayed here for 5 nights to celebrate a friends 50th Birthday. We had a fantastic time! The views from this home is amazing! One of the best stocked kitchen's I have ever experienced in a rental home. We loved that we all had our own bed and bath and each room was very private. Melanie is great and provided a great list of local experiences! I suggest starting your trip with a private tasting with the neighbor! He is a special soul! We spent most of our days out wine tasting, but the house was so great that we enjoyed our nights cooking in.

My only complaint is that the house does not have air condition. That would normally not be an issue, BUT, if there is a heat wave of temperatures in the upper 90's during the day (which is what happened to us 2 days into our trip) it is very hot without air conditioning!

This is the MOST amazing property!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 10 adults recently stayed here for a birthday celebration for three nights. We were absolutely blown away by everything this property had to offer. The other reviews are completely accurate - gorgeous views, high-end appliances, expansive floor plan, modern furnishings and linens...the list goes on and on...and on. Melanie was amazing from the very beginning, so accommodating and friendly. She provided us with perfect suggestions, where we discovered Chef Tiffany Friedman (!). The entire stay was just more fabulous than I can describe. Treat yourself to Wine Country Escape - the memories will truly last a lifetime!

Amazing wine country getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Wine Country Escape (WCE) for 3 nights in early June to celebrate my boyfriend's 40th birthday. We could not have been more thrilled with the home, amenities and location! It was truly a perfect weekend.

Upon our arrival, we were warmly greeted with champagne and a cheese board and shown the house and its features. The property manager also told us about some other hidden gems in Santa Rosa and helped us hook up with Chuck McCoy, owner of McCoy vineyards and neighbor to WCE. We had Chuck to the house and he did a private wine tasting for us - he has a wonderful life story and we loved drinking wine with him!

We had 12 adults in our party and there were plenty of accommodations. One really nice feature is that each bedroom has its own bathroom and there was no "less desirable" room in the house. Everyone was happy, which doesn't always happen when you rent a house. It's also nice that they provide bath and beach towels and bed linens so you don't need to bring those items along.

The outdoor pool and hot tub were great, and the Santa Rosa weather meant we could enjoy cloud-free days hanging out by the pool. The indoor sauna and steam room were spa quality and very nice. Sonos music system filled the house with music and the gentle breeze and open layout kept the house cool even though the weather was in the 80s. The house was very clean and well maintained.

The chef's kitchen was a joy to cook in! Two dishwashers, massive refrigerators, great stove and all of the utensils and tools you need to cook a full meal. We rent a lot of vacation houses and often find that there aren't key things like coffee filters or a working coffee pot, good knives, garbage bags, cleaning supplies, etc. WCE has all of this and more, plus plenty of plates, glasses, silverware, etc. Everything you need to put out a great meal except the chef (which you can actually arrange to come to the house if you need one).

We spent the evenings out on the amazing back patio overlooking the Santa Rosa/wine country valley. There is no one around and you feel like you have the whole world to your self. But you are just 30-40 minutes away Sonoma and Napa and closer to Santa Rosa.

Everything at WCE was truly perfect and amazing. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a wine country getaway with a big group. Thanks to Melanie and Dede for their hospitality and help along the way. They are very easy to work with and wonderful hosts!

The Escape is located on a hilltop with sweeping views of Sonoma County. The home is surrounded by Vineyards, rolling hills, and a beautiful natural landscape.

Take a Tour of the McCoy Vineyard (our fabulous neighbor Chuck McCoy), and enjoy a private wine tasting of his label, Volante, at the Villa.

A beautiful place to walk and explore the country.
