Sonoma Villa Rental Photos and Description

Perfect for large groups, corporate retreats, family reunions (no big events)

With spectacular mountain-top views overlooking vineyards, this wooded, hillside resort on over 150 breathtaking acres offers utter privacy, relaxation and solitude. Relax on the wrap-around deck or float in the pool overlooking beautiful Sonoma Valley.

Gorgeous outdoor pool (not heated) is lovely during the warmer months.

The estate is large, with plenty of space for everyone to curl up with a book or splinter off to enjoy talking over a glass of wine.

Some favorite spots to spend time:

- Curling up by the fireplace in the great room

- Lounging in a wicker chair on the deck wrapping the house on 3 sides

- Swinging in the hammock or sitting in the Adirondack chairs on the large lawn

- Lounging by the outdoor pool (unheated, open for swimming Memorial Day - Labor Day)

About The Owner

I'm honored to manage this beautiful property. It is quite possibly the loveliest place in all of wine country, and I love helping guests experience it. This estate has been owned by the same family for several years. It is exquisitely maintained and professionally managed.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2000

What makes this villa unique

The 150 acre property is truly unique. You feel you're worlds away, but we are within short driving distance of several wine country towns.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We can't thank-you enough for allowing us to use your house this weekend for the family to stay at during the wedding!! When we got there it was so beautiful we thought we could have had the wedding there!! We felt like the entire weekend was fairy tale. It was perfect and you ordered perfect weather too.

Trip of a Lifetime!

  • 5 of 5

What made the trip so special was that we had 18 people able to stay and congregate on the property. We were there to celebrate my wife's 60th birthday. The property is indeed unique and even though the house is a little dated, as much upgrading as possible has been done. Everyone was satisfied with their accommodations. The kitchen was big enough but we probably could have used another refrigerator. Any minor issues we had during the week were handled immediately by Kevin on the phone. He was very helpful. The location to Sonoma and Glen Ellen was perfect. We did take trips to Napa and Healdsburg which were not too far away. Finally, the chef we had cook the birthday celebration dinner was local and knew the property. This helped her prepare so that we had a perfect evening. The weather was a little warmer than usual early in the week and we weren't made aware of an attic fan that might have helped those sleeping upstairs. All in all it met our expectations and I would certainly recommend it to a group that wants an ideal place to get away. Good value.

Fabulous family-friendly retreat surrounded by nature

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a most enjoyable and memorable week-long family reunion at the Moon Mountain house. We have only superlatives to describe the experience.

The house is beautifully furnished and maintained yet children friendly.The mountain views are a constant presence as our three-generational family swam in the sun-dappled pool, hiked up the mountain ridge, barbecued on the lawn or had everyone gathered round the large dining table for a meal cooked in the spacious, well-equipped kitchen (two dishwashers, two coffee machines, two ovens and a professional chef’s stove!)

Thoughtful touches made this house special ... the hammock under a canopy of trees, the ping-pong room, the wrap-around terrace and verandah where children could do an art project on the outdoor table under the shade of a large sun-screening umbrella while a mum or dad caught up with the inevitable office phone mail just a few feet away. Wifi was good out on that verandah and in the comfy TV room where we caught the start of the Rio Olympics. Even with a big extended family there was always enough quiet spaces to retreat to, to read or just to nap.

The responsiveness of Bridget and Kevin the on-site staff was exceptional. She was contactable for our every question and need, driving up to fix a sticky door one day and bringing us a replacement coffee grinder on another.

We loved that Sonoma’s vineyards, cafes, shops, supermarkets and yoga studios were just a ten minute drive away. Yet we were living amidst nature’s serenity where our city children got the chance to see animals such as hare, eagles, a coyote and a mother partridge leading her eight babies into the bushes right next to the house. Those who got up at 4am one morning to catch a reported meteor display were not disappointed. We highly recommend this Moon Mountain house!

Amazing house

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing house and it was perfect for our family of 12. Beautiful views, gorgeous pool with great landscape. We enjoyed cooking in the kitchen, it had everything we needed. The only thing we wished were different is faster internet, sharper knives and more dish towels in the kitchen. Overall, 5 stars!!! Would stay here again and did not want to leave!

Lovely place to be

  • 4 of 5

The Moon Mountain Estate is breathtaking. The pool and grounds are lovely. Even though not heated, the pool cover made the pool very comfortable for swimming. We loved sitting out at night to watch the stars and the nightly visit by bats, and other wildlife.

The staff was very helpful with anything we needed. That said, a few things could have been improved. The house is really not fully air conditioned. The upper level is not, and was very warm for sleeping. There is a fan that is supposed to pull the cool air up, but it does not help. The dishwashers were not properly attached to the cabinets, and had to be held in place when loading and unloading. Wifi is sporadic. The televisions are very difficult to use. One oven was not working.

All of that said, my group had a wonderful week and the kids would love to return next year.

Outstanding Views!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful house. The pictures on VRBO don't do it justice!! The house is very comfortable with many bedrooms (6 I think, plus a den with a pull out couch). But the best parts are the outside space and the views. Gorgeous!!!! The house is set high on Moon Mountain, all by itself. There are no neighbors nearby. It is a few miles off the main road, but we had no problem getting taxis to pick us up and pizza delivered! I can't wait to go back.
