About the property

Exquisitely appointed Villa with 4 master suites minutes from Healdsburg

If you want to enjoy all that Sonoma County has to offer, why not be in the center of it? Just 20 minutes from Healdsburg Plaza, 30 minutes to Bodega Bay, 40 minutes to Sonoma and less than 10 minutes to Sebastopol or the Russian River and Redwoods. Villa Vernazza, one of the premier vineyard estates in Sonoma County is surrounded by 55 acres of premium Pinot Noir Vineyards in the Russian River appellation. As you approach the the Villa through 1/4 mile of vineyards up the stately gated drive the image of Mount St. Helena and surrounding hills awaits in the distance. The picturesque Villa grows into view as you grasp the scope of this sprawling single level nearly 6,000 sq. ft. vineyard estate. The entire home and property offer access without a single step to climb so that everyone regardless of age can enjoy their stay. The grand entrance boast an 18 foot high sunlit foyer adorned with fine tapestries. An immense great room awaits with abundant seating, a baby grand piano and a dining area with seating for 12 that is open to a wonderful gourmet kitchen fit for the most discriminating chef. There is also additional seating for 8 for casual dining at 2 counters.

There are 4 beautiful master suites with king sized beds and full baths en suite. A family room with game table and a large flat screen HD TV has a sofa sleeper and can be used as a fairly private 5th bedroom on the east wing. There is also a study in the the west wing with another HD flat screen TV and sofa sleeper that can be closed off from the main living space to be used as a 6th bedroom.

Outdoors you will have the option of a walled courtyard with small ponds and a huge fire feature in front or the beautiful back yard with a large heated pool and built in spa. A large BBQ grill is great for outdoor cooking while you take in the views of the vineyards, horses and mount St. Helena. There is also a large lawn of grass for lounging and games.

Villa in the middle of a Vineyard!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent three nights at this exquisite villa with friends and family.

Loved everyone minute of our stay. The villa is so spacious, warm and cozy as well.

We really enjoyed the pool, and bocci ball court !

The garage has a pool table and ping pong which we used every night! So fun, we really enjoyed Chef Trip and his wife , we had dinner and massages for the ladies! Really relaxing and a great way to end our stay in this wonderful area.

Villa Vernazza was Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend at Villa Vernazza for a birthday celebration with our extended family. First of all, Randy was very easy to work with preparing for our stay. The property and the house were just amazing. The home is very specious, furniture was high quality, beds were very comfortable, and the open plan was perfect. The property is what sets Villa Vernazza apart from other options I looked out. Sitting in the middle of a working vineyard with great views from every part of the back of the house, where we spent most of our time. The pool, jacuzzi, outdoor furniture, bocce court and views make the backyard the primary place you'll want to spend your time. We also had Chef Trip Fuchs, who 5Star recommended, prepare meals for 2 of the nights. He was a pleasure to work with, extremely accommodating, and his meals were world class. He's a must if you plan on having someone prepare meals while you're there. Woody's Wine Tours is also highly recommended if you'll be out wine tasting. Woody was fantastic and the unique wineries he chose were perfect. We'll be back!

House manager did not greet us

  • 2 of 5

When we first arrived, no one was at the house to greet us ( he called me and said he could not make it). For this priced property, this should be a given.

Patio around pool needed a good sweeping

Water in the house has a foul sulphuric smell. A simple whole house charcoal filtration system would solve this.

Water pressure in the east side of the house is very week.

Wifi in the west side of the house was very weak to non existent

No pool towels provided

The propane gas tank in the fire pit was empty

Old food was found on the outdoor dining table

Plastic cup and trash in the pool

11 bags of trash greeted us in the drive way when we arriveded

Owner's Response: I have to say that I was shocked to see this review and I called the renter immediately to apologize that he did not have a wonderful experience . I have since had a chance to talk to other renters that checked in 2 days after these renters and before this review came. The owner and I checked personally on all of these issues later and we are very confused about this review. First of all on the day of check in I called to explain that there was an emergency situation at another Villa we manage and can't be there but that I could walk him through everything over the phone, which I did. (It was a leaking pipe causing damage and I could not leave but I didn't go into the details.) I asked him to please call if they had any questions or concerns. Later I received a call about excess garbage from the renters that had checked out that morning. I came by the the next morning to remove the trash and asked one of the guest if everything was OK and he said everything was great and that they loved the place. The next day I got a call that they were out of trash bags and no comment was made about any other issues so I dropped more bags off to them but there was nobody there when I arrived. These guest were in the house for 8 days and I never heard a word from them about any other problems or concerns until I read this review. That is why I was so shocked to see it. The cleaners must have missed something left on the table in the back yard as other guest (very messy) checked out that morning and some things could have blown into the pool at any time. The new renters that checked in 2 days after the reviewer's group checked out said that the water pressure was fine in fact very strong and that they didn't notice any smell. The owner tested the wi-fi throughout the house and there was a full to strong signal everywhere and we confirmed that the water pressure was great everywhere and didn't notice a smell to the well water. So I am baffled as to why this 2 star review was written. I can assure future guest that this is an anomaly and that they will have a wonderful experience.
