About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

This home is located less than 2 miles to Healdsburg and the Town of Windsor; two charming towns in Northern Sonoma County. Also, just minutes to major wineries including Rodney Strong, J Winery, Kendall Jackson and an abundance of tasting rooms in both towns, you won't have to drive too far.

Stay in a neighborhood right off the 101 highway and around the corner to many roads that lead into different appellations like Chalk Hill, Alexander Valley, Dry Creek and the Russian River which is why it is becoming popular among visitors who come every year. This home is VERY central to ALL of Sonoma Valley including many wedding locations or areas just for exploring. Visit the Russian River, Bodega Bay, the pool at Coppola Winery, museums and plenty of vintage stops. You're in a perfect location to visit all these areas because of its central location. No long dark roads to drive to at night!

Your party will have a pleasant retreat to come back to after a long day drive.


PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR PHONE NUMBER and the reason for your visit. We do have age restrictions but will consider all inquiries. THANK YOU. When using the BOOKING NOW option, the booking will be accepted providing we have the age of primary guest.

About Claudia Castro

Richard and I wanted to have a home in this beautiful part of California to visit as often as we could. There is a lot this place has to offer. One or two trips is not enough to discover this amazing destination. Every trip we have made here is awe-inspiring and our goal is to share this place with as many families, 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

We researched 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 its central location in Sonoma Valley while also being close to Napa Valley. The towns of Healdsburg, Sebastopol, Guerneville, Occidental, Petaluma, Calistoga, St. Helena, Yountville and many others are all relatively close by. 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

You and your party will either be exploring the area or cozying up to a gas fireplace inside or outside. It’s just the right size and price for up to three couples or a family of four that enables everyone to spend money on world class cuisines, fine wines, memorable attractions, and bucket list tours. It's just the perfect size, in the perfect location, for the perfect price.

A cozy wine fest indeed

  • 5 of 5

We (my fiancé and his family) had an absolutely wonderful time!! The pictures are beautiful but dont do it justice. It really is a large home with plenty of space, cozy, well decorated, and comfortable. The patio is just so amazing, and we had a wonderful time sitting outside. Claudia was amazing to get in touch with and provided suggestions for wineries as well. Everything was just perfect. I recommend this House to anyone and will come back!

Great house and ideal location

  • 5 of 5

Sonoma Wine Nest is a perfect house for wine country activities. The house itself is very nice, clean and is well kept. The back yard patio and fire pit will definitely draw you outdoors. The location of the house makes it central to all of Sonoma county and is quite easy to get across to Napa. We will stay here again for sure.

Great location, well equipped. My daughter had some spotty wifi service as she did quite a bit of work from her phone but we enjoyed ourselves and the house very much. Thanks for the fast responses to questions upon arrival.

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.
