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

The pictures really do not do this home justice. The gardens and landscaping are amazing and the house has perfect sleeping arrangements for couples or girls trips with enough privacy and bathrooms for all. The appliances are high end and kitchen has everything you would need. We enjoyed sitting outside listening to the waterfall and admiring the hummingbirds and rose gardens. We also loved the state park adjacent to the property for ease of hiking and outdoor enjoyment. House is very central to all the Sonoma wineries. Valerie was great to work with, super responsive, and went out of her way with little personal touches to make us feel at home. Wish we could have stayed longer. Can not recommend enough for your getaway, can't wait to go back!

Outstanding. So serene.

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in many VRBO's over the years but have never had an owner be so accommodating and hospitable. Not only did they give us early access to the house but gave us a glass of wine while we waited for another person in our party to arrive. They really wanted to make sure we were comfortable in their house.The house was well appointed and the beds were amazingly comfortable. Would highly recommend renting this wonderful house.
