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

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Sep 19, 2016
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 (see heating rates) . 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.

Cozy comfort

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the home. It was cozy and comfortable. They had everything provided that we could ever think we needed. Home was very clean and I loved the open space. It was raining when we visited so we stayed warm indoors and relaxed on the comfy couches . Thank you to Nilus, for providing a wonderful space for my family and friends. Highly recommended!

A SLICE OF HEAVEN ON EARTH!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing setting! House is so warm and inviting. Perfect wine country experience, including roosters crowing, cows mooing and the evening tree frog symphonies, not to mention the view and sunsets! The pool was perfect and the outdoor shower was wonderful!!! Doesn't get better than this! Being here from Georgia in August was great--weather was so refreshing, cool, crisp mornings, daytime the pool was inviting, hot with no humidity, and evenings, after cocktails and dinner on the deck we even had a fire in the fireplace. We love Healdsburg and had lunch in town, but stayed home at night to enjoy our view. Nilus is a great host! I swiped some lavender from his garden to make a sachet. We will return for sure!

Homey, Excellent Location and AMAZING pool

  • 5 of 5

I had a mini family vacation with 3 kids and 3 adults. The home was perfect. The pool was great for the 3 year olds who sat on the stoop before stepping in and there was plenty of space to hang out, relax and enjoy each others company. The location is great, as it is the quieter side of Healdsburg but a very short drive to the main square. Will definitely go back again.

Delightful

  • 5 of 5

Lovely well appointed house with pool, view of vineyard and hills. Just 3 miles from downtown Healdsburg, about 15 minutes from Santa Rosa airport. Comfortable stay for 2 mothers and their 2 daughters. Things went smoothly, owner responsive to our questions. High recommendation for pleasant get away.

Cozy, but needs some TLC

  • 3 of 5

Pros:

- Great location to the wine country

- Open layout

- Nice deck to enjoy

- Pool is aesthetically pleasing

- Nilus was very helpful with an early check-in

Cons:

- The two queen rooms were very small, especially the one in the back. There was only room to walk around the bed and one nightstand. No dresser because the room wasn't big enough, and the closet was full of owner's items. Nowhere to lay out luggage or unpack.

- The pocket door on the second queen room doesn't shut all the way, making it difficult for privacy

- Beds had no headboards and were on rolling frames, making the beds look and feel extremely cheap.

- We agreed with other guests that having no top sheet for bedding was uncomfortable.

- The property was right next to a farm. So a rooster would start calling out at 5:45 am every day and would not stop. Made it impossible to sleep in on vacation.

- No A/C in the house, and we weren't allowed to run the vent fan. Since we couldn't open the windows due to the rooster, it made for very hot sleeping arrangements

-There were spiders all over the house. I realize it's the country but still made it uncomfortable.

-The outdoor shower is a plywood wall, with basic plumbing handles, and owners storage is right next to it. Definitely not luxurious as stated.

Overall: the house has good bones, but needs to have some updates, especially in the bedrooms. With a little TLC it would be a gem of a house.

We all agreed that $600 per night was too expensive for the condition and the lack of normal amenities.
