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 3 BBQs (one big, one medium and one for searing), 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 8 in total. 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 sofabeds in the upstairs sitting room, master bedroom alcove 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. Pets are welcome (up to 2, for an additional fee). 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!

Fabulous all around

  • 5 of 5

The entire stay was great as is the home, but the outdoor area stands out as extremely special. Was great to use the outdoor kitchen and have dinner together outdoors. They thought of all the little things - like phone charging chords next to all of the beds. Leslie was extremely helpful and accommodating. Hope to stay here again in the future.

Our stay at the Olch’s beautiful property in Healdsburg was absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

The owners, Leslie & Michael went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect. The communication with them was superb and so helpful with tips about the property and area. Their home, pool, outdoor kitchen and living space are fabulous. The house was very clean, comfortable and so well equipped to make our stay flawless. We went to Healdsburg with our family to bike through the wine country and could not have picked a better property or location to do so. We can not thank them enough for making our trip so memorable.

I rented this beautiful house for my 50th Birthday weekend and let’s just say that we can’t wait to come back next year!!!

This home was a very private with beautiful views of Alexander Valley. The backyard has so many beautiful things going on. From outdoor kitchen, pool waterfall, fire pit, creeks on the property, playground, huge outdoor table under the stars, front porch swing and so much more. My favorite was sitting around the fire pit with friends after a wonderful BBQ and then jumping in the jacuzzi looking at the stars and enjoying a glass of Chardonnay from the homeowners Vineyard.

“Now that was the icing on my birthday cake”

The homeowner Leslie was so easy to work with and was available anytime if we had questions. The only struggle we had was with the Apple TV remote. We found the directions to it the day we were checking out. LOL 😝?

Thank you Leslie...We can’t wait to return next year!!!
