About the property

1 bedroom-sleeps 2, 1 full bath, kitchen

This rental is located on 8 acres in the scenic hills above Santa Rosa. Our rental is designed for couples who want a little luxury in a country setting. Although we are in the country, you are only minutes away from shops and fine restaurants. Serene and beautiful mountain views can be seen from the balcony and all the windows. Wake up to a view of mountains and the song of the numerous birds that live in our fields. The road begins and ends in two regional parks that are wonderful for hiking or mountain biking.

We are in the Sonoma Valley Wine Region, also known as the Valley of the Moon. You will understand why if you are here to see the lovely moon rise from the balcony. The valley begins at the base our road (HWY 12) and ends 16.5 miles later at the town of Sonoma.

Here is a detailed layout: The rental has a separate entrance. The door connecting the rental to the main house has been sealed off and sound-proofing installed. Your private entrance is through the drive-through carport. You have your own kitchen, which is located downstairs as you enter into a small hall. The kitchen was installed 3 years ago with new appliances. It has a stove, sink, dishwasher and refrigerator. It is stocked with silverware, pots and pans, and dishware.

Stairs lead to the upper level and largest area. There is a small dining room just at the top. A door to the right leads to a master suite. You enter into a hallway with built-in bookcases. The bedroom area to the immediate right is about 20’ x 25’ with high wooden ceilings. The sitting area is by the bay windows in front of the bed. There are 2 chairs and a table here for you to enjoy the view of the mountains and valley. This room also has a gas fireplace and flat screen TV.

A balcony runs the length of the unit and has 2 sliding doors. There is a small table with 2 chairs here so you can enjoy your morning coffee. The balcony faces east and can be seen in the photos (double rainbow in winter). There is a bar sink, mini fridge, and microwave in the hall next to the balcony.

A large walk-in closet is between the bed area and the bathroom. The bathroom is extremely large and also has high wooden ceilings. We have a 2 person Jacuzzi, walk in shower, and double sinks. My husband is a remodeling contractor so the detail work is high end in the California craftsman style. All the cabinetry and built-ins have been made in his wood shop.

About Kathy and Dave

I have lived in Santa Rosa for the last twenty five years. We left San Francisco to build our home and studio near Hood State Park. We have raised our two children here and become part of this unique community. During this time I have come to appreciate the extraordinary beauty of this area from painting landscapes in the vineyards and park lands.

Guestbook comments from the owner

On a scale of 1-5, I would give this place a 6. It is immaculately clean, beautifully decorated, and very cozy. It is sunny, private and peaceful; away from the hustle and bustle, yet within a couple of miles from a convenience store (good thing because I ran out of deodorant!). You will enjoy waking up to the morning sunlight and the birds singing outside. You can sit with your coffee by the bay window in super comfortable chairs admiring the spectacular view, or watch the marvelous sunset with a glass of vino. Hotels in the area don’t stand a chance in comparison. There are simply no hotel rooms that will provide the amenities this place has at such a reasonable price. For wine lovers, it is the perfect place to stay; equidistant to vineyards in the southern part of Sonoma as well as northern Sonoma. Pinot Noir fans, this is your spot. Kathy is super sweet and a wonderful hostess. (Sammy will greet you upon arrival; the nicest yellow lab you’ll ever meet.). I highly recommend this place and look forward to returning one day.

Gorgeous apartment with spectacular view, rural setting

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was beautifully designed, well built, and tastefully decorated, and the location is truly special. The rooms are exactly as pictured and described. The spacious master bedroom is the perfect place to relax, sitting in the comfortable armchairs, by the fire, in front of the stunning scenery. The bathroom is probably the most attractive bathroom we've ever seen in a rental, and the handsome walk-in closet was a luxury too. The property is located a few miles off the main road, way up on a hill. It was rainy while we were there and sorry we couldn't sit out on the balcony to fully appreciate the view, but it was nice even in the rain! Kathy and Dave were so accommodating, from offering restaurant and winery recommendations, to turning on extra heat for us in those slightly cool days. The apartment was thoughtfully provided with everything you could want. Spending time there was really a memorable experience; you didn't feel like leaving once you were settled in! Thank you, Kathy & Dave. We'd love to stay again.

Better than expected!!

  • 5 of 5

This property was everything posted and more. We spent a week enjoying amazing views in the most clean and comfortable rental we had ever used. Kathy and Dave have taken care of everything you could possible need. The bedding and linens were high quality and chosen with their guests comfort in mind. The pictures do not do justice to this rental. We wanted a week of relaxation and we got it. There are so many restaurants and wineries close. Menus and other guests suggestions were provided. Groceries were also close and the kitchen was stocked in all of the little 'forgettable items', so you were able to cook anything. The weather at this time of year was spectacular as was the fall foliage. I would recommend this property to everyone. Thank you Kathy and Dave!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just completed a three night getaway to the wine country and could not have had a better time. Spectacular Views is just the right combination of "off the beaten path" but still close to both Napa and Sonoma counties. We spent a full day in each area and the house was perfectly located for that. The peaceful nights were so quiet you could hear the dear walking in the grass outside. Everything in the home is first class and well done. We would definitely stay there again!

Beautiful retreat in Sonoma Wine Country

  • 5 of 5

We had a great 4-day getaway to Sonoma Wine Country, and this rental was one of the highlights. See that bay window and upper deck in the picture? That is your space. BEAUTIFUL view. It was a great place to retreat after a day of wine tasting and sightseeing. Kathy and Dave are very nice. Property is up in the hills, yet conveniently located near Santa Rosa with all its amenities (including Trader Joes, Whole Foods, etc.). You can also hop onto Calistoga Road near your lodgings and be in Napa Valley in a few minutes. So if you want to visit both Sonoma and Napa areas, this rental is a great choice. We hope to stay here again.

A Piece of Paradise!

What a fantastic place to stay. Everything you need to be comfortable either on the go or for a relaxing evening in. Kathy and Dave are charming hosts who are there if you need them but allow for all the privacy you want. The views are incredible and accommodations so perfect. We highly recommend !!!
