About Valerie and Doug Richardson

Hello, We are Doug and Valerie Richardson. We love people, and we love sharing our home. Married for 36 years now, we both love outdoor activities, like running in our beautiful 5200 acre state park, situated right behind our home. We also love taking drives through the stunning vineyards and pasture lands that surround our home. And of course, we both love wine and food! If you enjoy our home and this beautiful place, well then...we will be very happy!

Valerie and Doug Richardson purchased this house in 2009

What makes this house unique

Wonderful house for a weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our weekend trip. It was in a good location to access different wineries, breweries, farmers markets, and hiking. The yard is beautiful and relaxing. The cat, Petals, was good company and spent lots of time with us. The owners are great to work with. If we make it to Santa Rosa again, we will definitely stay here.

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here during our trip to California for the Half Ironman in May. The house was immaculate and definitely lives up to the pictures. Val was great, having everything ready for us and even had a wonderful card to welcome us to the house. Backyard is so beautiful and a great location within 10 minutes of downtown. Highly recommend this place.

Beautiful Home in a Quaint Wine Country Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home in a quaint neighborhood. The location was great - close to the highway, great local/gourmet grocery store, running and hiking trails, and of course wineries. The pictures actually don't do this house and neighborhood justice. It's really nice and cute with high end appliances.

The owners were super friendly and helpful. I had a question about BBQ utensils and they got back to us within minutes. Though we are not cat people their outdoor cat, Petals, was friendly and easy to manage. The outdoor seating and BBQ patio were inviting and well maintained. We highly recommend the house, the location, and the owners! We'll come back again.
