Overview

About the property

This amazing property is only five minutes from the Sonoma Square and yet in an incredibly quiet and rural setting nestled among world-class wineries. This is also the best location to visit both Sonoma and Napa wine regions. We are on the east side of Sonoma, very close to Napa.

We built this gorgeous 4,000 sq-ft home from ground up in 2013 with two things in mind: luxury and comfort!

You will find here all top quality finishes, appliances, furniture, and amenities. Enjoy a 40 foot long, brand new saline heated swimming pool and built in hot tub. Enjoy outdoor lounge areas, 12 person teak outdoor table, and bocce ball court. For kids, there are endless activities including heated swimming pool, outdoor playground (swings, monkey bars, etc), ping pong table, biking and more.

This is the perfect location in the wine country. This home is 2 miles east of the Sonoma Square. You have access to all top quality wineries, most of them walking distance. Ravenswood, Buena Vista Winery, Sebastiani, Bartholomew, Gundlach Bundschu and other top wineries are a short walk or bike ride away. Of all wine country destinations, this location also is the closest to San Francisco, only 40 minutes away.

Enjoy a glass of Sonoma Pinot Noir on the deck, lounge by the pool, and enjoy an evening with the stars in the hot tub!

Important notes: We have a five night minimum from April, May and first half of June. It is a one week minimum during the summer months from June 12 through August 20. For the Summer of 2018, we can accept three night reservations during weekdays. It is a five night minimum from August 21 through October 31. We can NOT rent this house for two or three nights during these months. Only time we would consider less than five nights is if it falls in the weekdays or it fills between two reservations.

For November, December, January, February and March we have a minimum of four nights. Occasionally we can rent it for three nights during these months. We can not rent it for two nights for these months.

Finally, For Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's weeks, we have a one week minimum.

There is a strict noise ordinance in Sonoma. No outdoor music at anytime. Also guests are expected to enjoy the property inside after 10:00pm. Based on our agreement, you can not use the backyard after 10:00pm. Our vacation rental permit allows us to have a maximum of 12 people at night and 16 people during the day. We can not exceed these numbers based on our license. Also maximum five cars are allowed in the property. We receive a lot of requests for larger parties. We simply cannot accommodate these. So, for example, we can NOT have 22 people on a Saturday for a small gathering. It is simply against our vacation rental permit. Thank you!

About Bora Ozturk

I love good wine, good company and a good round of golf. Sonoma has been my dream destination for more than a decade.

Bora Ozturk purchased this house in 2012

Why Bora Ozturk chose Sonoma

We fell in love with the home and location first time we saw it. We rebuilt the whole house from ground up.

What makes this house unique

It is very hard to find a brand new home with luxury this close to Sonoma Square and to San Francisco. Also the privacy and quietness of this home make this a very unique destination.

Gorgeous home, great location

  • 5 of 5

Our whole family loved our stay here. The home is beautiful and the yard is incredible. We had plans to do some sightseeing and wine-tasting but found we didn’t want to leave. The kitchen is very well stocked and it’s such a pleasure to eat outdoors in the grapevine covered veranda, swim in the beautiful pool, and play ping pong or bocce. We had a fabulous time here.

great yard

  • 4 of 5

Great yard with lots to do for the kids. We had issues with AC, driveway work on neighbors drive (cut access to drive in half), some ants within the house, some cat dander (although not cat present). Issues with AC / drive are unpredictable. House was very clean although it is nearly impossible to perfectly clean from a cat and we probably would not have noticed except one of our members is allergic to cats. We bought some ant motels and placed out and significantly reduced ants.

Owner was very responsive with AC although issue started on Sunday and could not be resolved until Monday.

Overall we'd stay there again if available.

Owner's Response: Thanks Michael. I am glad to hear that you would want to come back and that you had a good time. Also I am very happy to hear that you liked the house and the yard in particular. You brought up several issues and I will address them one by one here. I am severely allergic to pets myself and I can assure you that it is impossible to have cat dander in the house. All the furniture is brand-new and all throughout our ad, we specifically mention that "no pets are allowed in the house because the owner is allergic". So, I don't believe any tenants brought any pets without my knowledge. Regarding the driveway, we have two driveways leading into the house. It is an exception because most houses have one single driveway. I am not sure why you mention it in your review but with one of the driveways open, you should have been able to access the house very easily. The neighbors were working on fixing their driveway, first time in years, and hence the 24 hour closure of one of the driveways. Again, this should not have impacted you at all. Regarding the AC, it is a brand new system. Turns out some fluid was too low and needed to be replenished. And we got it fixed the next day with emergency HVAC service after you mentioned it. And finally about the ants. We've never had infestation even in the rainiest of seasons. There are occasional ants all around Sonoma County because it is countryside after all. -bora

Gorgeous home, perfect for a group!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this beautiful property! We were a group of 6 couples, celebrating my husband’s 40th with 5 days in wine country. Everything was as-pictured, and very comfortable. We loved the open plan of the living space and the vaulted ceilings, which together with the outdoor areas made it feel spacious even with 12 adults. I’d say the den with the pullout isn’t ideal for a bedroom since it’s a pretty flat/smushed mattress, but since we didn’t fill up every available bed in the other rooms, we repurposed a futon mattress on top of it and made it work! The home is new and lovely, the bedrooms are thoughtfully done in a split plan, and there are lots of bathrooms. The backyard is fabulous, we loved playing bocce! The noise rules are tough, but that’s the case with all similar properties in the area since it’s an ordinance, so we didn’t mind. The kitchen was well outfitted, we were able to make breakfast for 12 several days, and reheat some dinner/snack items other times. The location is so convenient to the Plaza and Whole Foods, and there’s a coffee/breakfast place right on the corner that we loved!

Sonoma is our happy place, and this home is the perfect Sonoma oasis. We definitely hope to be back soon!

Perfect Wine Country Home

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our group. The size, space, and amenities were great. We had 11 people and had plenty of space. The house is stocked with all the conveniences making our trip easy and relaxing. The proximity to downtown Sonoma, as well as wineries in the area, was very convenient and made the trip very enjoyable as we didn’t spend a ton of time in the car. The owner was very responsive and helpful. Overall, I would definitely recommend this property if you are looking for a relaxing wine country vacation!
