About this listing
This newly built, very private property is only five minutes from the Sonoma Square and very close to world class wineries and Napa County. We built this gorgeous 3,500 sq-ft home from ground up in 2013 with two things in mind: luxury and comfort!
Description: You will find here all top quality finishes, appliances, furniture, and amenities. Enjoy a brand new heated swimming pool and built in hot tub. Enjoy outdoor lounge areas, large teak outdoor table under a trellis with grape vines, bocce ball court, outdoor stone fire pit and more. For kids, there are endless activities including swimming pool, outdoor playground (swings, monkey bars, etc), ping pong table, biking and more.
This is the perfect location in the wine country. It is very quiet and green. This home is 2 miles east of the Sonoma Square. You have access to all top quality wineries, most of them walking distance. Ravenswood, Buena Vista Winery, Sebastiani, Bartholomew, Gundlach Bundschu and other top wineries are a short walk or bike ride away. Of all wine country destinations, this location also is the closest to San Francisco, only 40 minutes away.
Enjoy a glass of Sonoma Pinot Noir on the deck, lounge by the pool, enjoy an evening with the stars in the hot tub and don't forget to get a glass of scotch by the fire pit, all in an extremely private setting.

Other Things to Note
Unlike all the homes I personally stayed in the Sonoma Valley, this house is not built as a rental. Most rental homes in Sonoma look nice in pictures but are worn out when you visit them. They have old furniture, uncomfortable beds, dirty pools, etc. (no matter how nice they look in pictures). In contrast, this is a brand new home, built by the owners for the owners. We rent it only a fraction of the year. As such, it has all top of the line finishes, grounds, pool, furniture, kitchen, etc. The people who rented through other websites have said that this is the best house they have ever stayed in the wine country by far!
Here's the bedroom configuration:
Bedroom 1: King size bed with its own bathroom
Bedroom 2: Queen size bed, plus a bunk bed. Upper bunk is twin and lower bunk is full.
These two bedrooms above are each the size of two bedrooms, they are very big.
Bedroom 3: Queen size bed with its own dedicated bathroom.
Bedroom 4: Two twins plus a twin trundle bed. These two twins can be put together for couples
Bedroom 5: This room is right next to the main house but is detached. It has a brand new queen sized bed and en-suite bathroom. Perfect for privacy.
Bedroom 6: There is a brand new Room and Board sleeper. This queen size sleeper is just as comfortable (if not more comfortable) than regular beds.
The main house has four bathrooms. Two in the bedrooms and two to be shared. The detached room has its dedicated bathroom.
We will ask you to sign an acknowledgement form once you make the reservation confirming that you are OK with the following bullet points. If you are not OK with them, please do not reserve this house.
•No outdoor music at any time of the day
•There is a strict noise ordinance in Sonoma after 10:00pm. Please enjoy our back yard or front yard until 10:00pm. After 10:00pm, take your group inside the house.
•No more than 12 people at night and 16 people during day are permitted at the property.
•No more than 6 cars are allowed at our property. Please do not park at Lovall Valley Court. Please park the cars in our property.
If we receive a complaint from any of our neighbors you will forfeit your security deposit and you will be asked to vacate the property.
No smoking in the property. The maple dining table in the living room is very expensive. Please wipe off any stains immediately and do not use hard objects on it. Also do not put burning hot items on the table directly. Hot tub is for adults only. You are responsible for keeping kids and adults away from the swimming pool and hot tub if they are not water safe. It takes only a few minutes for the hot tub to heat up to 100+ degrees after turning it on. Please do not keep it on when you are not using it. Keeping the hot tub on for a long time consumes hundreds of dollars of electricity in one day. Also it cuts the water circulation of the main pool and stops the self cleaning process for the swimming pool. Only turn the hot tub on when you are using it. Please keep the pool covered when you are not using it. The button to close and open the pool is by the kitchen, outside. Please use only plastic glasses outside. Do not take any glass outside especially by the pool. No adults by the play structure. Play structure is designed for kids. The beams may not support anyone more than 125 pounds. This house can not accommodate more than 16 guests during the day and 12 people at night as per the wine country regulations. All the houses on the east side of Sonoma County are on a septic system. Please throw only one cut of toilet paper at a time. This is a fragile septic system. There are trash bins in each of the five bathrooms. Please use these bins for excess toilet paper. Due to liability issues, trampoline and zip-line are not for guest use. Trash day is Monday in our neighborhood. If you are staying over Sunday night, please take the trash out to the side of the street Sunday night. Please put the trash bins next to our mailbox 19380. Make sure that the trash lids' opening face the street. Trash trucks arrive Monday early morning. Please take the trash back in Monday afternoon if you are staying on Monday. There are on the back side of the garage, inside the chicken coups stacks of fire logs. Please feel free to use our logs at the fire pit. Once you're done with enjoying the fire pit, please extend the hose by the vegetable garden and put off the fire. The biggest source of fires in the wine country is unattended fire pits. Please drive slowly at the court. Please check the following website to see if it is legal to burn wood during your stay. A few days between November to February it is illegal to burn wood.
