About the property

3 br, 2.5 ba on 3 acres, close to Healdsburg Plaza and great wineries

Featured by Sonoma Magazine as one of their "Stunning Wine Country Vacation Pools."

The Healdsburg Resort House is a 3 acre property located in world famous Alexander Valley, has fantastic views of the vineyards/mountains and has its own hillside vineyard (we will provide a bottle of cabernet sauvignon and chardonnay grown from the hillside vineyard). The house is a great combination of privacy and proximity, with the closest house a quarter mile away, but wonderful downtown Healdsburg only an eight minute drive.

Enjoy a world-class backyard. An "everything you need" deluxe outdoor kitchen, custom pool, large in-ground hot tub, waterfall, firepit, vineyard, expansive kid's play structure and of course great views. The outdoor kitchen has a large and small Viking BBQ, 2 refrigerators (food and beverage), freezer, icemaker, 2 sinks, 3 burners, warming drawer, oven, dishwasher and 2 large islands. Next to the kitchen is a double sized mosaic tile outdoor dining table, seats 12, and has cafe lights strung overhead for evening ambiance. After dinner, settle around the large firepit (with automatic starter).

Inside you will find another very well equipped Chef's kitchen (complete with large Viking griddle, 4 large gas burners, large island, wine frig and more). House also has a wood-burning fireplace, great entertainment system (80" 4K HDR TV with DirecTV, AppleTV, Netflix, Blu-Ray, and 7.1 surround sound), huge covered wraparound porch with amazing vineyard views, exercise equipment (treadmill, elliptical trainer) and $3,000 electronic Toto toilets (very addicting). Maintain perfect temperature control with centralized A/C and heat.

As for beds, there are 7 in total (8 if you count the queen size luxury aerobed). The master suite has a king bed, and is located upstairs with its own double-sink full bathroom and separate sitting room. The other bedrooms are downstairs, both with queen beds and direct french door access to the backyard. There is another full bath downstairs plus a half guest bath. There are fold out couches in the upstairs sitting room and downstairs living room. There are also two twin beds in the sunroom off of one of the downstairs bedrooms.

The property is gated and fully fenced with the nearest neighbor a quarter mile away. We look forward to sharing this wonderful place with you.

About Leslie

We are a family of three (including Milly age 12). We have lived in Healdsburg for 15 years and love sharing its wonders with guests from near and far.

Leslie purchased this house in 2003

Why Leslie chose Healdsburg

Healdsburg is a wonderful town with something for everyone. World-class restaurants, diverse wineries, spas, shopping, central plaza that hosts music festivals and weekly outdoor concerts during Summer, gourmet cooking classes and bi-weekly farmer's market May-October. We love that our home is in a country setting among wineries and vineyards, but with convenient access to the center of town in just eight minutes.

What makes this house unique

We can recommend favorite wineries, restaurants, salons, spas or shops, and children's activities if you have kids.

Perfection in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Visiting wine country at harvest time is paradise....vineyards have gorgeous colors and the fall weather is beautiful. But true perfection was staying at this awesome Healdsburg home! Location, location, location! The home and surrounding property are absolutely stunning. Every small detail is thought off--from posted instructions on how to operate outdoor lights, outdoor kitchen, spa, creek fountain and fire pit (yes, the property has all of these amenities) to the movie library and HUGE tv to the charging cables for your phone,ipad in every room! If you like to cook, the home is a foodies heaven--great gourmet kiitchens (indoor and outdoor), and it has an awesome entertaining layout. The property is very inviting and very comfortable....plenty of room to spread out (our party each enjoying our own bedroom) and a great room with fireplace and HUGE TV and lots of comfortable seating for hanging out. The owners were fabulous--great communication and follow-up--and they welcomed us with a bottle of white and red wine from their vineyard! Our only disappointment is that we didnt have enough time to just stay "home" and enjoy the accommodations! Can't wait to come back!

We had another terrifc stay and Michael and Leslie's fabulous home!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at this home, and the experience during the winter was almost as great as it was when we stayed in July! The house is super comfortable for a group of 6 adults and two children, and the location is superb. We will definitely return!

Nice yard

  • 4 of 5

Stayed in November. Nice location. Close to wineries, restaurants, downtown Healdsburg, groceries by car. Leslie very receptive to questions. Offered many recommendations. Deposit return was timely.

Outside setting and property was nice. Would be great in better weather. We enjoyed the fire pit on cool evenings. Inside was fine. Kitchen and family rooms were a good size. Bedrooms/bathrooms ok. Beds were comfortable. Could use a little refresh in spots.

Incredible place to relax and play

  • 5 of 5

The house and especially the outdoor areas were fantastic. There was plenty of space. Everything worked well including the pool and hot tub heat. They do alternate so you can only have one on at a time, however the hot tub heats up quickly. I found Leslie accommodating and easy to work with and she even left us a couple bottles of wine from their own winery. It was exactly as advertised. We had a phenomenal group trip!

Great home, so well equipped, conveniently located...

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 11 very hot nights and enjoyed our time immensely. The pool was refreshing and the kitchens (inside and out) made for great meals to coat our bellies after wine tasting. Leslie and Michael did a great job making us feel welcome in their home.

A wonderful retreat in Alexander Valley

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this lovely retreat in the Alexander Valley.

My girls did not leave the property and had a wonderful time playing in the pool. The kitchens (indoor and outside) were great for family dinners. And my dog had a great time, too.

Would recommend highly.
