About Don & Kathy Oliver

Don grew up in L.A. and was in the Food Industury for many years. Then he moved up to sonoma county in the late 70's. Kathy grew up

in the south bay area and work for electronic companies and moved up to sonoma county in the mid 70's. Don and I met in 1990 and married the following year. We both fell in love with all the beauty of the area and wonderful things it has to offer.

Don & Kathy Oliver purchased this house in 1997

Why Don & Kathy Oliver chose Sonoma County

When we first saw the property we fell in love with the views and liked the location of being on the edge of town, but we are still close to everything. We see wildlife, like deer with

their fawns, sometimes we see foxes and alot of different birds. This place and the area has become very special to us.

What makes this house unique

We love the views of the winter creek, valley and mountains. The courtyard in the front of the house with our beautiful Japanese Maple tree.

Accommodations fit out group of 10 perfectly

  • 5 of 5

Very nice house with nice owners who greeted us warmly; very complete information about how to use items like the TV; also good information about the locale. We had six different family units (a total of 10 people) so the accommodations were perfect. We were all there to attend a wedding and having the house enabled us to spend time together when there were no "wedding" activities. Worked perfectly for us.

Really comfortable and convenient home in Santa Rosa

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay at the Olivers' beautiful and spacious home in Santa Rosa. We had plenty of room for our large family--some who stayed here with us and others who joined us for evening dinners together.

The neighborhood is really comfortable for families with children and is close to parks and recreation.

Kathy and Don did everything possible to make our stay enjoyable. They are wonderful hosts!

A must stay anytime in the area

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful spacious home. It is decided in 2 wings with 3 bedrooms in each. The furniture is amazing and the home is very peaceful. We had all of our meals outside on the deck and had a blast. The owners are very nice and very helpful with all needs. It was a very short drive into downtown and a Safeway is 3 minutes away which is very convient. I would recommend this to anyone even if you did not need all 6 rooms, you will not be disappointed.

Perfect Vacation Getaway in Fantastic Location!

  • 5 of 5

Don and Kathy were wonderful hosts, and this was a beautifully maintained and comfortable property that we did not want to leave! The location was perfect for day trips to Armstrong Woods, downtown Santa Rosa visits, Healdsburg shopping, and wine tasting in a variety of areas. It also fit our group's desire to spend leisurely mornings having coffee on the deck and sharing evening meals using the well-stocked kitchen. The location and view off the beautiful deck was so peaceful and included deer, wild turkeys, and many, many birds. We could not think of anything the gracious hosts failed to provide. Top notch linens, towels, toiletries; roomy storage areas; extremely comfortable beds; new appliances--and they even kindly provided a bottle of wine and snacks to get our relaxing weekend started. We will be back in the future when we need a property of this size. Can't say enough about this fantastic property and the hosts! Thank you, Don and Kathy! You made our family reunion/girls' weekend the best yet!

Perfect place for us in every way!

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 11 adults, looking for a large home to stay for our son's wedding at Kunde Family Winery. It needed to be within reasonable distance to Kenwood (~14 minutes drive, typically) and it was in a quiet residential neighborhood, but close to Highway 12. We definitely wanted a single-level to accommodate an elderly person and not only is the house single-level, but access to the front door is a ramp from the driveway - perfect! No stairs any where! Here are other features that we appreciated the most:

- Don and Kathy are the perfect hosts. They were very friendly and accommodating, but not in any way intrusive. They were responsive before and while we were there. They met us when we arrived and oriented us to the house. In fact, I think they met all our family members at one time or another and everyone had nice things to say about them. It's wonderful to have them living on the property.

- the driveway was long, and covered by the front door. At one point we had four cars & a van and all were easily accommodated.

- there are two wings with 3 bedrooms in each wing, separated from the living areas, which is nice for sound isolation. This was perfect for us; allowing everyone to have their own space. The living room was spacious enough, but our family made great use of the back wraparound, covered deck, spending a lot of time there. Five of the bedrooms have direct access to the deck, which is amazing. The kitchen was fine, with everything we could need. There were two ironing boards and irons, which was helpful, given that people were all getting ready for the big events at the same time.

- there is a Safeway grocery store an easy mile away. We can't comment about restaurants in the area because we really didn't eat out; except the rehearsal dinner at Aventine in Glen Ellen, which was fantastic!

So, two recommendations - if thinking of staging a wedding in the area, check out "Boot Hill" at Kunde Family Winery (a spectacular setting) and stay at Don & Kathy's place for any occasion.

Lovely home, great location

  • 5 of 5

There were eight of us ranging from 6 years to 70. Plenty of room, very clean and nice decor, good access to parks and trails. Bird feeders right outside the window with plenty of hummingbirds and woodpeckers. Super nice owners. We were very impressed.
