About this listing
Our amazing family home will be your comfortable spot for your stay in Wine Country. It has a spacious layout, lovely backyard, and a park around the corner. While located on a quiet street, we are close to wineries, downtown, and beaches.
Our beloved home is the perfect balance, close to every kind of enjoyment imaginable. We are 45 minutes from Pacific Ocean beaches (sun, swimming, surfing), 75 minutes from San Francisco (opera, concerts, theaters, museums, sports stadiums), 30 minutes from Calistoga Hot Springs, and less than 20 minutes in every direction to world class wineries (Napa Valley, Healdsburg, Dry Creek). We have a wonderful climate year round.
Sonoma County is a hub for organic local food, as well as talented local musicians and artists. Point Reyes National Seashore, a national treasure 1 hour south, has phenomenal hikes, biking and beaches, as well as locally crafted cheese, oysters and agriculture. Closer to home, it is ten minutes to Annadel State Park, where you can explore for an entire day or more on bikes or on foot without retracing your steps.
This is our primary family home and not purely a vacation rental. The home is 1,950 square feet with three bedrooms and two bathrooms, plus an office. When you enter the home, the living room is on the right with the amazing baby grand piano and comfortable sitting area. It is our favorite place to read!
The spacious master bedroom is to the left with a king bed, en suite bathroom (and lovely tub). The second bedroom is a twin and is set up for a child, and the third has a double bed (with new mattress!) which is very comfortable. There is also a fourth room that we use as an office that is just above the double bedroom. If you'd like, we could set it up with a very comfortable pad or some other solution for you to sleep another person. It has a large closet, but no door.
The modern kitchen has granite countertops and includes a dishwasher and garbage disposal. It opens to a dining space that seats 6, and a lovely family room.
Other amenities include a washer/dryer, microwave, a/c and heating, and high-speed wifi.
The patio and backyard are a true secluded oasis. We would love for you to use our BBQ. We do have a hot tub but please note that it is not currently working. We even have a tree house! There are three sliding glass doors to the patio as well as beautiful picture windows in the family room. We have no neighbors behind us, just a hill of beautiful natural boulders and bay trees.
Our home is child friendly but adults will enjoy it just as much. We do have a pack-n-play if you'd like to borrow it. We live in a very quiet neighborhood on a dead-end street, around the corner from an excellent elementary school as well as a wonderful nursery/preschool. We are one block from Hidden Valley Park.
We know you will love your stay in our special home! We are happy to provide more photos upon request. Also, we are willing to work with you regarding fees, check in and check out times, and most other things, depending on the size of your party, the length of your stay, etc.. Contact us for more information. We do allow one night stays but greatly prefer requests of two nights or more. Thanks!
Guests will have the house to themselves.
Interaction with Guests
Generally, we stay within an hours drive and are available by email or text. Occasionally we go out of cell phone range but will alert guests if that's the case.
We live in a quiet, suburban neighborhood with a mix of younger couples, kids, and retired folks. We are about ten minutes from downtown Santa Rosa.
You are welcome to park in the driveway or on the street. You will need a car.
Other Things to Note
Please note this is our primary family home, not only a vacation rental. There are personal belongings throughout!
Please remove shoes in the house. No smoking, no pets. Please no eating or drinking (except water) in carpeted areas. There will be a manual in the house which includes check out instructions. Please take care of your dishes as best you can, and if you have time before you go, we'd appreciate you stripping beds. We live in a quiet neighborhood and request your cooperation with keeping it that way. Thank you! We look forward to having you!
We had a great time at Dana's house. The house was as listed, very clean and everything is well stocked. The master bedroom was huge. My kids had a great time playing in the backyard. Dana communicated with us couples weeks before our arrival to see how she can make our stay more comfortable. I highly recommend her house and we will definitely come back again next time when we visit the area.
Dana and her husband had excellent communication every step of the way. There was a little bad luck with a couple short power outages and they made us feel like they would do anything they could to help (power outages were short and didn't affect our stay). Friends and I were in town for a wedding. The house was convenient and had plenty of space for all of us.
As described, Dana's home was warm and inviting. I stayed with my 2 grand daughters and I loved that the house was child friendly . Enjoyed the backyard, sitting out in the patio while my grand daughters played loved BBQing I have to admit the house rules of no shoes indoors was difficult at first.
Comfortable beds and home. Dana was available for my emergency of needle and thread. Thank you Dana.
Dana was very accommodating and helpful. She was out of town for the weekend but was available via text and left a ton of information for us. I was happy to have a calm, quiet, warm place to stay for the weekend. Would love to go back (when I'm not in Santa Rosa as a bridesmaid)
The stay was absolutely wonderful. The house locates in a quite neighborhood with big backyard and a tree house!! The tree house was a huge hit for the boys. They also have a lot of toys. The house is clean and cozy and spacious. Really loved it.
Instructions were exact and easy to follow. Highly recommend it for family with young children.
Everything was as described in the posting. Plenty of space, excellent instructions, and exactly what we were looking for. Our group of two families, including three kids, was right at home here. Thanks for having us.
It was great staying there for one night. They left the house clean and the beds were comfortable. Definitely requires some tiny work on your part (i.e. putting the sheets in the wash) But otherwise great place. Nice back yard where we shared a glass of wine :)
