Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The house is super close to the town and the grocery store, which was very convenient. As well, its surrounded by many amazing wineries. The hard part was choosing which ones to go to!

We loved sitting on the wrap around porch drinking the wine we had bought that day as we watched the sun go down. The two rooms in the main house are really big and very comfortable. The guest house is a bit cramped but as long as you are okay with a slumber party feel it works perfectly .

Tranquil sanctuary in Sonoma

  • 5 of 5

Lovely house set in a country setting. Very attractive kitchen amid spacious accommodation. The hosts were very attentive to some minor problems which we had. We had to evacuate amid the tragic Sonoma/Napa fires of October 2017 and the owners were very fair in reimbursing us for the days which we were unable to stay as a result of the fire hazard. We recommend this house for those with a big group or family.

Fabulous Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house was exactly what we were looking for. We had never been to Healdsburg wine country and were so lucky to find this gem.

The house was clean and very well kept. It was stocked full of amazing toys our kids loved along with a high chair too. The property itself is beautiful, I'm still dreaming of relaxing on the large deck overlooking the valley. The kids loved the pool and I loved walking the nearby streets in the woods and just being in nature. It is also super close to some of the most delicious wineries too.

Both the owners and property managers were very prompt, kind, and always available when we had any questions at all. We went grocery shopping before we arrived. I wanted to ask about a grill so I called the property manager who answered his cell and gave me that information and more helpful tips. There is also a great information book at the property which was so full of useful goodies we really felt right at home the second we arrived.

Whether you are a family with young kids like us, a couple, or just some friends looking to getaway this house is perfect! Know you will have a wonderful place to stay with no stress so you can just enjoy your vacation.

Great stay in Healdsburg

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at the Natsch's home. The house was very very clean including the baths which is a plus for the kids. We loved the expansive deck with great views and the Adirondack loungers. The pool was also very very clean and was great in the summer afternoons. The house did not get hot even though it was 85 outside.there are tons of toys and children's books which kept our little ones entertained all weekend. The only blemish was the atypical layout of the third and fourth bedrooms which are in a separate structure with no bathroom and you walk through the third bedroom to get to the fourth. We made do just fine since we only used three bedrooms and the third bedroom was used by a family with young baby so it actually worked out for the best. The best thing was the fresh fruit on the property. The peaches were an amazing treat at breakfast. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Wonderful Country Home in Wine Country

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Jack Pine Retreat and it was perfect for our family get together. The only problem was the weather. For several days the temp was over 100 degrees and the main house is not air conditioned. The guest house has a window ac unit and was fine, but the main house was warm. We made do with fans realizing that this was very unusual weather. It only lasted a few days and the house was very comfortable after that

The managers were great and available and even provided us with a misting hose for the deck. The deck is large and has a wonderful view of the valley. The pool was a lifesaver. The pool and grounds were wonderful for the kids with fruit trees and lizards to chase and plenty of driveway for bikes. The location is perfect. It is close to Safeway and Healdsburg, but on the wine trail with numerous wineries just down the road.

We had a great time and would highly recommend this rental.
