About the property

Tuscan Lifestyle In This Lovely, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths Home.Ask re: winter rate

You'll enjoy this lovely, two story, Tuscan home, nestled in more than three acres of chardonnay vines. From the wrap around upper deck you'll see rolling hills and vineyards. The country kitchen has granite counters, five burner gas range, and all the equipment you'll need to prepare elegant meals. The upstairs bedroom has its own area for morning coffee. Downstairs you'll find the family room, laundry room and two more large bedrooms, each with its own private bath.

You'll be located near several important wineries, and we'll be happy to recommend our favorites.

This is a home for adults. Because of the hardwood stairway and other elements of the house and vineyard that would be dangerous for children, we are sorry but we can't rent to families with children under the age of 10. Please respect this when you book your reservation.

Our minimum stay is 3 nights during high season, 2 nights in winter with the exception of Thanksgiving and Christmas, where we have a 3 night minimum stay.

Legality issue:

We are a legal Sonoma rental and pay for licensing in Sonoma County. Guests should be aware that there are many unlicensed rentals in Sonoma city and County. Your deposit is at risk if you reserve one of those, and it is shut down prior to your arrival.

About Carol Collier

Many years ago we visited Sonoma and fell in love with the small town atmosphere and the lifestyle. When an opportunity arose to relocate, Sonoma was the obvious choice. We have resided here for fifteen happy years. We sell our chardonnay grapes to several important wineries. In 2014 we created our own wine. We call it "Namesake" and the label portrays the beautiful Western Meadowlark, whose flocks travel through the vineyard in the spring. We just bottled our third vintage.

Carol Collier purchased this estate in 2013

Why Carol Collier chose Sonoma

My husband and I were hobby winemakers for several years. When this beautiful property became available it was an opportunity to grow our own grapes, and the gorgeous Tuscan style home was a bonus. A morning walk through rows of chardonnay vines while the sun lit up the vineyard was all it took to convince us. We love watching the hawks soar overhead and the hares bound through the vine rows. The vineyard is beautiful even after harvest when the vines are bare of fruit.

What makes this estate unique

This home has a lovely view from every window. We knew that when more living space was added, it would be perfect as a vacation home, so we began an extensive remodel. This very private, restful retreat is still close to the downtown amenities, the restaurants, tasting rooms, movie theatre and other activities. We know you'll like living here.

Its not difficult to provide a review of the property, it can be summed up in a word "Amazing". This home is located in an area that has numerous vineyards to visit. We were able to navigate to many location with ease. The home itself is extremely clean. The layout of the home works perfectly for 3 couples to visit and still maintain privacy. From the furnishes to the detailed tile it has that luxurious hotel feel. The kitchen has all the amenities needed to have a 5-7 course meal (bring your own chef). The views from the home are breathtakingly beautiful. The wrap around deck on the second floor provides great sunset views of the Valley. Privacy is another experience you will enjoy at this property. Walking the on site vineyard is a must. If your looking for a relaxing private experience with all the amenities and great location this is an excellent place to start.

Lovely Vineyard Home Close to Everything in Sonoma & Napa

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this lovely property for a holiday vacation with our adult children and their significant others. Carol was a wonderful host and made sure we had everything we needed to enjoy our time in wine country. We would highly recommend this property. This was our first time in a private home vs hotels in Sonoma and Napa. It was perfect. We were able to cook out on the grill and spend evenings gathered together in the well appointed living room. Carol welcomed us with croissants and their label Chardonnay. Every detail was attended to and we can not say enough about what a wonderful time we had. Would definitely stay again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your nice review. When guests come to Sonoma during the holidays, we realize it isn't the same as celebrating at home, so we try to make it as special and festive as possible. Sonoma is back on track as a great place for a vacation. The fires in October were bad, and many homes were lost including some nice vacation rental properties. We were fortunate that our area was spared. We have owned this property for several years and have hosted nice guests who respect the home and many return for another visit. We hope to see you again and again.

Owner's Response: We appreciate our guests' comments and their time spent writing a review. During the recent fires, we have experienced an outpouring of contact from prior guests who saw the news and wrote or called to wish us well. We are grateful that our rental property has been unharmed when so many other residences in the valley have suffered great damage. Our local fire fighters and many workers from other states have worked hard to contain the blazes and save lives through rapid evacuations. Many areas of our country are vulnerable to fire, winds, and floods, but we believe Sonoma residents and business owners will pull together to recreate our lovely vacation town and welcome guests again in a few weeks. .

Flipping amazing! Way better than a hotel!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with 2 other couples. The views are ALL DAY long! Sunsets are so beautiful and change by the minute. The owner actually owns the vinyards around the house. There's a grill fire pit etc. we would be out most of the day and come back at night to relax. House was stocked well enough for us to grill out there. Beautiful deck on the west side of the house. Great calm quiet location. Definitely better than being in Napa.

Owner's Response: When we travel, we're always pleased when a rental home appears true to its advertisement. We can honestly say we have pleasant views from every room because we are surrounded by vines, lovely at any time of year, and we have a view of the beautiful rolling hills of Wildcat Mountain. We are always pleased when our guests appreciate the very special qualities of the home.

We rent this property because of the close location to the Sonoma Raceway. The owner is so sweet and the house is stocked with everything needed for a comfortable long weekend.

Three large bedrooms with full bathrooms for each room, ideal set up! Lots of room to park many vehicles in a beautiful vineyard setting..what's not to like.

Owner's Response: Visitors come to Sonoma for many reasons. The excellent wine brings us many guests, but there are also other attractions. Sonoma Raceway, (formerly named Sears Point Raceway and Infineon Raceway) is a 2.52-mile road course. Our vacation home is a few minutes away and convenient for drivers and others who attend the races. We look forward to greeting our return guests each year and appreciate their loyalty to our vacation home.
