About Daniel Silewicz

My Family and I have lived in Sonoma County most of our adult lives. We love this beautiful area and all it has to offer for those who love the outdoors. I am the property manager for my families property and a real estate agent for Century 21 NorthBay Alliance. My parents bought a little old farmhouse, lifted it, moved it, remodeled it, expanded it and put our fingerprint on its new design. It was our goal to make the outdoors as much a part of the living space as the indoors. We believe that we have succeeded! We invite our guests to enjoy Villa in the Vines as much as we do!

Silewicz Family

Daniel Silewicz purchased this house in 2012

Why Daniel Silewicz chose Sonoma County

We live in Sonoma County and chose our farmhouse to transform and mold into the retreat of our dreams because of its exceptional location in the vineyards of Sonoma Valley. It is near town, yet far away. The location and views could not be more appealing. The setting and location are incomparable.

What makes this house unique

Villa in the Vines is centrally located for family gatherings and is located in an ideal location for guests due to its close proximity to Sonoma Plaza and the wineries of Sonoma, the Carneros, and Napa Valley.

A Wine Country Oasis

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED our stay at Villa in the Vines! We had a group of 8, 4 total couples. The house was spacious and had everything we needed. We enjoyed spending our days out wine tasting, and then retreating back to the house to hang out in the backyard, pool, spa, etc. during the evenings. The owner and property manager are both wonderful to work with, too!

Beautiful views, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely LOVED our stay! It is a great location- we found it easy to get to wineries and downtown Sonoma. It was the perfect home to come back to after a few tastings and relax by the pool, play bocce, and grill. We loved watching the sunset over the vineyard and mountains from the back porch. Our group thoroughly enjoyed this home and would love to come back!

Fantastic house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa in the Vines for three nights and wish we had stayed longer. 8 of us traveled for a girls weekend to celebrate all of our 30th birthdays. The house is even better in person than in photos! We had plenty of space both inside and out. We truly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend to everyone.

Even better in person!

  • 5 of 5

We were very excited to visit Villa in the Vines, but it was so much better than we ever expected. Yes, it looks great from the pictures, but the backyard is INCREDIBLE, the most amazing views of the vineyards and surrounding hills! Backyard is also so private and relaxing with everything you can imagine and more; bocce, yard bowling, Frisbee golf, fire pit, swing, arbor, covered porch with retractable sun screens, pool and hot tub. And the location is perfect, minutes from downtown Sonoma! We had 3 couple and the home was perfect, but can easily accommodate 4 couples. Home is very spacious plus nicely updated kitchen with every kitchen item and gadget imaginable. It was so nice that they supply oils and vinegar, spices, dish soap, paper towels, laundry detergent, and even some cleaning supplies if you need to wipe up a spill (most VRBO rental come completely empty with "supplies" so this was a nice bonus). Very clean and well maintained with nice bed linens. If you are looking for the perfect home in wine country, look no further, this is it! And make sure to go visit downtown Sonoma for Tuesday evening farmers market and live music.

Perfect Setting

  • 5 of 5

Six of us stayed at Villa on the Vines at the end of April, three adult couples. The home and amenities more than exceeded our expectations. All rooms are spacious, clean, updated, and well supplied (spices and other pantry items to beach towels). We enjoyed two evenings on the back patio - grilling, eating outdoors, playing bocci ball, sitting by the fire pit, and enjoying the views of the vineyards. The stereo system is fantastic with outdoor speakers. As other reviewers write, the owner and agent were responsive and helpful every step of the way. The owner provided tip sheet gave us lots of great suggestions. The location is nice, close to Sonoma and so many wineries. We couldn't have had a better time.
