Sonoma Estate Rental Photos and Description

Five Bedrooms, 5.5 baths

Stylish mid-century modern located in the heart of wine country in the exclusive Sobre Vista neighborhood. Our property is close to the town of Glen Ellen and five miles to Sonoma Square. The house sits on 2+ acres of mature landscape with towering oaks and lots of greenery. The house itself is 5 bedrooms (4 that are en-suite and the 5th with a bathroom across the hall) with an additional room that sleeps 2. One bedroom is off the master, but has a private entrance from the garden deck. Additionally, the house has multiple skylights, walls of windows, 2 stone fireplaces, living room, formal dining room, large family room, eat-in-kitchen and 5.5 bathrooms. The outdoor area is surrounded by gardens with ample outdoor seating and dining options. We have a solar heated pool (May through October) and a hot tub (year round) for those of all ages to relax in. Enjoy after dinner drinks or indulge in s'mores by the fire pit. The property offers areas for both quiet retreat and social time and is great for friends and family reunions and corporate retreats. There are fruit trees to be enjoyed around the property - delicious apples, peaches and more, when in season. And just minutes from the house are numerous wineries and restaurants if you want a break from relaxing by the solar heated pool or our brand new jacuzzi.

** Please note that Sonoma County vacation rental laws strictly enforce quiet hours that begin at 10 PM and end at 7 AM daily. Please be respectful of this law so that we do not lose our vacation rental license. There is also a maximum parking of 4 cars allowed on the property.

Why Anne Sipes chose Sonoma County

We live in the Bay Area and like to spend time with our family and friends in the Sonoma area. This part of Sonoma is rural yet close by many activities including wineries, sonoma square and other fun stuff. We purchased this property due to its great location and potential to be a great destination for families and adult get-aways.

What makes this estate unique

The spaciousness of this property offers the perfect atmosphere for family reunions, out-of-town retreats and corporate off-sites. There are three main social areas (living, dining and family rooms) inside the house and lots of spacious grounds outside. It has a very rural feel, but we are just minutes to restaurants and grocery stores.

Perfect for 5 Couples

  • 5 of 5

This is almost a resort in itself. 5 bedrooms with bathrooms, well-equipped kitchen, BBQ grill, hot tub, pool, fire pit, cable TV perfect internet, music, ping pong table, grounds to walk on. There is plenty of room inside for family or group dinners, games, cocktails etc. Oh, easy check-in and checkout.

The landscaping at Anne's house makes it look like a nursery; beautiful trees, luscious bushes and plants. You'll love sitting or just looking outdoors. By the way, indoors has all first class appliance, comfortable bed and nice bedding, nice furniture and great showers.

The location is minutes to Sonoma where there is nice shopping, the awesome Sonoma Market (groceries) and a fun selection of restaurants. And it's short jaunt up the highway to Glen Ellen where you have good restaurants and groceries. We enjoyed the food at the Glen Ellen Inn, pricey but unusual food.

Wineries are close too-some you'll know and some smaller, family run. A note about BR Cohn Winery close by. It's 20 bucks for tasting some really good reds and an interesting Chardonnay that are not sold at retail outlets. Caution, though, there is a soft but persistent push to join their club that requires purchasing 12 bottles a year (and you get your $20 back. Live music Sunday afternoon and free olive oil and balsamic vinegars tasting daily.

The beds are king and queen size but he place should work well for kids and individuals.

Bottom line- we highly recommend this beautiful place.

Lovely home, fantastic location

  • 4 of 5

We were 4 couples sharing this home for one week. The pictures are accurate -- a large home with more than enough room for all of us to have our own space. Huge family room, large living and dining rooms, and very well equipped kitchen. The bedrooms were large and beautiful with great mattresses and linens. Bathrooms all had starter shampoo's, lotions, and soaps. The outdoor area is beautiful!! So tranquil yet right on a main artery between Sonoma and Glen Ellen. The hot tub is awesome, and the pool huge. We used both. We love staying on the Sonoma side -- much less hectic and commercial than the Napa side, with a more laid back feel, yet close enough to do tastings on that side as well. We enjoyed going to the Sonoma Market one evening, and do check out Paradise Ridge Wine and Sunsets!! A really fun evening with, as the name suggests, great live music, very good wine, and fantastic views over the valley. However, most of our evenings were spent relaxing at this beautiful home making our own simple dinners and enjoying the wines we had tasted and purchased during the day. Our whole group has been to Napa and Sonoma several times before, but said that this was a really special week. Thanks Anne -- everything was perfect!!!!

Gorgeous home!

  • 5 of 5

This home is stunning! We rented this property with 4 other couples to celebrate our anniversary. The space is vast and the amenities are also! We enjoyed the outdoor space (patio, spa, pool, fire pit, ping pong, etc.) as much as inside the home. Decor is beautiful!! The bedrooms are separated from the living space, so it was easy for all to relax at their leisure. We had a private chef come in one evening to cook for us and it was quite easy for her to settle in and prepare a gorgeous meal as we lingered on the patio area and ate in the beautiful large dining area. Anne is so kind and very accessible to answer questions. Beautiful!! We will definitely be returning to this home in the future!

Great Sonoma wine country house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this great house in May 2016. We only had 2 couples as the third had to back out, so we had our choice of bedrooms and bathrooms!! This house has a really interesting layout allowing for lots of space but also common area. The Master has a bedroom/bath (nicely remodeled!) attached but could be for another couple if accessed from the deck rather than the connecting door. But it would be perfect for a family who wants the kids close by as there's also another small bedroom area also attached. The property is lush - wonderful mature landscaping and a really great pool and hot tub. Other reviews mention the road noise, but it didn't bother us when we sitting outside as we usually had some music playing. The property is very private and there's plenty of parking. Close to both "downtown" Sonoma and Glen Ellen area. We hiked in the Jack London park area one morning before returning to swim at the house. Thank you to Anne for all of her information and help - we truly enjoyed our stay!!

Relaxing, beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

The owner of the house couldn't be any sweeter and helped me with any and all of my questions prior to our stay.

The house location, propery and inside of home was awesome! The pool, firepit and outside area was even nicer and we hung outside by the pool daily when we weren't wine tasting! We loved every minute of it.

Additionally the house is located in a great location right between Sonoma and Glen Ellen.

Will definitely consider staying here again!

Perfect getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is definitely better than the pictures suggest. We had the right number of couples show up for a birthday/Napa Wine Tour&Tasting bash. There was plenty of space so that no felt like they were on top of each other and we could not have asked for anything better. We enjoyed the fire pit on those chilly November nights and it was perfect to sit and sip wine all night long. The owner was great to work with and would definitely recommend this home to our friends.
