Paresa is a stunning 3 acre estate located between Sonoma and Glen Ellen in the beautiful Sonoma Valley wine country. Perfect for entertaining, this wine country compound boasts a mid-century main home with 3 bedrooms & 2 newly remodeled baths set on 3 panoramic vineyard & hill view acres between Sonoma & Glen Ellen. Additionally, there is a spacious attached guest suite with a newly remodeled full bath & private entrance, a detached game room with ping pong table and half court basketball. Newly remodeled 1/2 bath in game room and an outdoor shower.

This 2600 square foot wine country escape has walls of glass that bring the outdoors in, with sweeping vineyard views. Newly stained concrete floors add a contemporary touch. Relax at the brand new, sumptuous salt water pool, custom spa, patio and bocce court and basketball court + a new outdoor shower. Multiple outdoor seating and dining options give it a resort-like feel along with the outdoor BBQ and fire pit. The property also comes equipped with a tandem bike, suspension mountain bike and a custom cruiser for touring the trails and wineries in our backyard.

The main house has three bedrooms, all with brand new furnishings, bedding, artwork and appointments.

There are two additional bedrooms, one with vineyard views and queen bed and one with 2 twin extra long beds. Both share a newly remodeled bathroom with brand new washer dryer.

The large, open living room and dining room each have floor-to-ceiling brick fireplaces + vineyard and garden views for exquisite and entertaining backdrops. The open kitchen was newly remodeled in May 2016 with all new equipment, and open bar.

The attached guest suite has a large, open format with brand new American Leather sleep sofa (with high end king bed), daybed and pull-out trundle (2 twins), new leather club chairs and a new 46' plasma TV; DVD/CD player with high speed internet/WiFi and cable. The guest suite also has a pot belly stove, full, newly remodeled bath and breezeway kitchen pantry with additional sink, dishwasher and wine cooler.

The property is surrounded by lush vineyard and hill views with complete privacy. Beautiful Manzanita and fruit trees along with raised beds filled with organic vegetables and flowers also adorn the backyard alongside pool, spa, bocce, basketball and barbecue.

The estate is minutes from multiple wineries, fine dining and state parks with endless trails, hikes and panoramic views.

Beautiful, well-located wine country suite

  • 4 of 5

I stayed at Kelly's property with a group for the weekend of our wedding held at a winery just minutes away. Kelly was easy to work with and very communicative leading up to and during the stay. Pros: Breathtaking patio with vineyard views, ample parking, a beautiful and well-supplied kitchen. The home was big enough that we were able to split up the bridesmaids/ groomsmen throughout the entire morning of the wedding. Cons: Given that there is a lot of brick/ concrete in the house, it was difficult to keep the house warm in November - the thermostats had hourly programs that weren't easily overridden. Also, some common amenities like bath products, dishwasher detergent, etc. weren't supplied or easily located. We would definitely consider staying at Paresa with a group of this size again. Thanks Kelly!

As beautiful as the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

Kelly is truely an amazing host- extremely quick response time, very accessible (prior to and during our stay) and was extremely helpful in planning our trip to wine country, as well as the coast of California! She was so warm and welcoming that we really felt at home. The property felt very private- we couldn't get enough of the pool and views! We even cancelled plans to spend a little more time in the backyard by the pool. The home was very spacious for our group of 7- we were all impressed by the beautiful updates to the home as well as cleanliness. The kitchen was well stocked and we had everything we needed to cook a few meals at home (the grill made it extra convenient!). I would very highly recommend this property and we hope to visit again soon!

Stunning home, Gorgeous View, Amazing Host

  • 5 of 5

We rented this for a bachelorette weekend for my sister in Sonoma, and it could not have been more perfect. The house itself is beautiful - newly remodeled, spacious, impeccably clean, and stocked with everything you could need including beach towels, dishware, cookware, glassware, etc. We had 9 in our group and everyone had more than enough room to spread out. The backyard patio and pool space is absolutely stunning - a saltwater pool and several seating areas overlook gorgeous rolling vineyards. Our favorite part of our stay was enjoying the beautiful mornings and sunsets out here, or just the pool time, all which came with an incredible view. Kelly was so awesome to work with - she is extremely responsive, warm, and welcoming, and has thought of every detail in advance. I can't wait to come back and stay here again!
