Modern country cottage: swimming pool, privacy, vineyard & 5 min. to Healdsburg

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Oct 28, 2014
Great room, expansive decks, 3 bedroom, 2 full baths, outdoor shower, sleeps 6.

This unique two-acre property, with heated swimming pool, looks out on the beautiful Russian River Valley vineyards and the never-ending Western panorama. Only minutes from award winning food and shopping in downtown Healdsburg, its within easy walking or bicycling distance of tasting rooms at J, Rodney Strong and other acclaimed Sonoma wineries.

This elegantly appointed, newly remodeled, 3-bedroom, 2-bath (+ heated outdoor shower), luxury cottage overlooks an exquisite new 40-foot, heated pool. Gracefully spaced steps span the entire front of the pool so you can lounge in shallow water enjoying a drink, reading, or simply admiring the view. On the grounds, a wooden bridge takes you across a winter creek to native California foliage. Enhance your enjoyment by playing outdoor Foosball on the deck or classic French Pentaque on the court nestled between vineyard and pool. After exploring the wineries, wind down by the fireplace. A sophisticated retreat for families and friends.

Enter property through our Malbec vineyard : Young, exclusive vineyard of 156 vines frame the entrance to our special home. Pear, apricot, fig, pomegranate, and walnut trees grace the two acre expanse. Indigenous, native oak trees circle the property, with six heads of free range calves across the creek on neighbor's land.

Well Water: The cottage's water supply is filtered well water (as most of the house are in Healdsburg). At times there might be a slight odor. It is perfectly safe to for drinking, cooking, showering.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I stayed last winter for one night with my friend. We went into town for dinner

(Healdsburg Hotel) and had a great fire in the fireplace that night when we got

back. The view of the pool and vineyard view is amazing. Everything is tasteful,

comfortable and clean. Great accommodations for two or a whole group.

Romantic charm, all conveniences, Healdsburg bliss

  • 5 of 5
We were joined by two other couples for a perfect extended weekend at Vineyard Vista. The property lacks absolutely nothing (every convenience and amenity is provided) while its charm and rustic flair give it the ultimate wine country feel. The living space is very comfortable with the fireplace and large dining table being two favorites of our group who enjoyed eating in two of our three nights.
Outside, the pool is kept quite warm so we were able to swim (November) and also took advantage of the private outdoor shower. Lots of spots on property to take scenic photos to capture great memories of our stay in this home. You'll want to move in!
The location is along a busier road but since the house is set back among its own small vineyard, you do not hear any traffic noise. You are about 5 minutes by car to town so the property offers a great balance of convenience and privacy.
We loved our stay and hope to make it an annual trip at Vineyard Vista!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at Vineyard Vista. Excellent location: Close enough to Healdsburg for cheap taxi fare but still surrounded by vineyards. One of the highlights was cycling around the country side. BBQ, pool, and petanque made for a great recovery from wine tasting. Super comfy beds.... slept like a baby. Highly recommend this property!!!

We had a wonderful stay here. The property was beautiful! Just perfect! From the heated pool to the cows mooing next door. Loved everything! Clean & well maintained. Location was great as well. We were 3 couples that went for a wedding and lots of room! You won't be disappointed!

Birthday weekend with two families!

  • 5 of 5
Perfect property with the most perfect, cozy house. We were two couples each with a 2 year old child. This was a kid friendly, yet chic house! perfect layout, furniture, the deck is made of a soft material so it was easy for kids to go up and down stairs to pool. The pool was perfectly heated and we really appreciated the electronic pool cover! We hung out on deck entire weekend using the table, grill and lounge chairs. We cannot wait to return!!!

Beautiful home in the wine country

  • 5 of 5
Such a comfortable, cozy home! The location was fantastic and it was very relaxing. We enjoyed the annual Dry Creek Winegrowers wine & food event "Passport" while we were there. The home was very clean & comfortable for 6 adults and the pool was an extra bonus. Perfectly appointed and equipped with everything we needed to enjoy our stay. Would love to stay there again!

disappointed at best...

  • 2 of 5
The listing photos are misleading.
This property sits off of a very busy street.
The owner did not bother to have the property cleaned up for our rental.
The grass was overgrown and the property in general looked unkept.
Nothing like the pristine look of the photos.
The home was as pictured although felt somewhat dirty.
We had no top sheets on our beds.
There was a "welcome" basket when we arrived and that was nice.
We were glad we only booked for one night.
We thought it odd when the owner made it very clear on the rental agreement that there was no early check-in before 3pm and check-out was 11 am and to "not even ask for an earlier arrival entry time." We should have taken our cue by this quite unaccomodating attitude.
The heated pool was expensive per day and the pool cover was to remain on at all times when not in use, which was unsightly to sit and look at.
Have you ever stayed somewhere that just felt unwelcoming? This was it.
My husband and I travel extensively and stay in many homes.
This would never be a place we would return or reccomend.

Owner's Response: Dear John,

We are committed to making sure all of our guests are more than satisfied and comfortable in our house. We are sorry that your stay was not up to your expectation. Having read your review we would like to address your issues:

"We had no top sheets on our beds."
Our 100% down comforters are encased in Egyptian cotton and linen duvet covers that are laundered after each and every guest.

"The grass was overgrown"
The lawn gets mowed once a week.

"owner made it very clear on the rental agreement that there was no early check-in before 3pm and check-out was 11 am”
It takes 3-4 hours for the cleaning crew to have the house ready for incoming guests (11am-3pm).
You did not ask us for an early check-in as we always, always try to accommodate our guest’s requests.

"The heated pool was expensive per day and the pool cover was to remain on at all times when not in use, which was unsightly to sit and look at.
Our electric pool cover is operated by just flipping a switch. The cover has to be closed (by code) when the pool is unsupervised. We love sitting on our deck, with the pool open, looking out at the sunset. Unfortunately, heating a pool is very expensive. We post our rates clearly on our site.

This property sits off of a very busy street.
Our house is 300 feet away from the country road with our pool, petanque court and vineyard separating our property from the road.
We are very glad you enjoyed our welcome basket.
