About Claudia Castro

The start of this business grew from my husband and I wanting to have a home in this beautiful part of California to visit as often as we could. There is just so much this place has to offer and discover. One or two trips really is not enough to get to know such an amazing part of the country. Every trip we have made here is awe-inspiring and our goal is to share this place with as many family, friends and new friends as possible. We are excited to share our experiences and recommendations with you!

Claudia Castro purchased this house in 2014

Why Claudia Castro chose Sonoma County

My husband and I researched the Napa, Sonoma and Russian River areas for almost 2 years before deciding on the town of Windsor. Although this town has not been popular with the locals as a vacation destination, it is the best kept secret because of it's central locale in Sonoma Valley that is also close to Napa Valley. The towns of Healdsburg, Sebastopol, Guernville, Occidental, Petaluma, Calistoga, St. Helena, Yountville and many others are all in relatively close proximity. With the Santa Rosa airport just 7 miles from the home, it provides incredible convenience to get to as well.

What makes this house unique

With the location of this home, you will either be spending the majority of your time exploring the area or cozying up to a fireplace inside or outside. It’s just the right size for up to three couples or a family of four that is comfortable so you can spend your money on world class cuisines, fine wines, memorable attractions and bucket list tours. It's just the perfect size, with the perfect location, for the perfect price.

Great Property in Wine Country

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property ten minutes from the heart of Healdsburg. Quiet home with very comfortable furnishings. Everything you would find at home was provided. Looking forward to our next visit. Downtown Healdsburg shopping area was great. Wonderful shops and restaurants. I highly recommend this property.

Great weekend stay

  • 4 of 5

The house was in the perfect spot to tour the area. Just an hour from the ocean and short drive to the wineries along Dry Creek. The central location proved to be perfect for us for the long weekend.

Claudia was great to work with and her restaurant suggestions were helpful and accurate.

Immaculate, well-appointed, lovely house with all the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

Having rented many homes over the past 25 years, I was extremely impressed with how responsive Claudia Castro was to our every need. Six of us stayed in the Sonoma Wine Nest, and the accommodations were perfect. This was a Zero Birthday celebration for family and framily, and we arrived from all across the country - Portland, OR/Chicago/Phoenix. Claudia's entry and check-out instructions made light work of getting settled in and checking out. We had an architect and designer in our group, and they both commented on what a well-appointed home SWN is. You instantly feel comfortable in this cozy ranch. You literally could eat off the floor because it's so clean - a must for rentals - and we were quite pleased. We loved being outside on the deck/patio in the back and even did a yoga class out there (we had an instructor among the group) one morning after a pleasant walk to the park in the neighborhood. The only comment we had was we wished it was not so hot during our stay so we could have enjoyed the backyard a little more in the evening. It's truly a lovely setting with beautiful flower gardens and a calming pond. The pictures don't do it's a spectacular home and wonderful backyard.

Claudia recommended Scopa and Bravas for dinner venues, and we loved both of them. Healdsburg is a darling town, and we managed to find every ice cream shop on the square! Since our wine tastings took us north of Healdsburg and south of Sonoma, being right off the 101 was key.

I would not hesitate at all to stay at the Sonoma Wine Nest again. When you find a gem for a vacation "home," it enhances your vacation all the more - and the Sonoma Wine Nest certainly did that for our group. We will definitely stay there again if we are in the area.

Thank you, Claudia, for helping make this Zero Birthday celebration a memorable one.

Lovely homebase for wine country

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Wine Nest for a recent birthday - we had a total of 5 people and it worked great. The bedrooms were all well appointed and the kitchen had everything we needed. Wifi was easy and fast, the living room fit all of us comfortably, and we loved being able to pull the car into the garage. The house is well located, an easy drive up to Healdsburg or around the region - great for relaxing and for a homebase when jaunting out to the wineries.

The home is less than 5 miles from the towns of Healdsburg and Windsor. Healdsburg was rated the top 6 most romantic cities in the US by CNN. Windsor is popular for concerts on the Green (on the park) where you can bring your chairs, food and wine. Most all popular Sonoma County towns are under an hour and with the highway being so close, you can get to anywhere quickly.
