We had an unbelievable stay at this gorgeous home. The views are stunning in every direction. The decor is beautiful. The swimming pool is luxurious. The outdoor space is perfect for al fresco dining. This is a great place to stay with children or for an adult weekend away! You can not go wrong with these lovely accommodations! I can't wait to go back.

Modern, spacious home with all the comforts. Stunning property and views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a Moms trip for 5 and everything was great. All amenities. Beautiful home. Location in Kenwood was central between Sonoma, Healdsburgent and Santa Rosa. Very close to Kenwood Spa (a must for a girls' trip).

We all stayed in the main house...2 in master king, 1 in King pull out in master bedroom (not your average pull out) and 1 in each of 3 other rooms/queen beds. It worked out great. 2 full washrooms plus powder room in main house.

House is open, beautifully decorated, modern. Only recommendation would be to have a small garbage bin in the powder room.

Note to travelers, use Google and not Wayz to find the home which is very close to Kunde wines, Kenwood and many others.

Thank you for a wonderful stay in Kenwood.

Beautiful Setting

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Kenwood at this beautiful home. Spent the evenings cooking family style meals and drinking wines of the region. The home is located in a rather remote spot so prepare to drive to activities in the area. We hope to return some day to take advantage of the beautiful pool when the weather allows.

Breath taking views

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at a fabulous home. The kitchen was well stocked with pot,pans etc for a big group at Thanksgiving. There was plenty of space for all. There were a few minor issues slow drains in the master bath, and the kitchen needed a deep clean from years of visitors. The minor issues did not take away from the fun and memories we share from the trip to the wine country. The design and views from anywhere in this home are simply breath taking!

Private Location Beautiful Views Poorly Stocked Home

  • 3 of 5

Here is a brief version of an email I sent to the owners within 48 hours of our stay.

-- I wanted to share a few things with you that may require your attention at VRBO #17364. Also I hope some of the things I am sharing may help you with future rentees.

1. The toilet in the 1/2 bath continuously had to be fixed in order for it to flush throughout our stay. The flapper chain kept coming off in the toilet’s tank.

2. The dishwasher soap left under the sink was enough for one load of dishes. And as you know we stayed several nights for our family get away. The same was true for the washing detergent for the clothes washer.

3. All soap dispensers in every bathroom needed to be refilled and two out of three toilet rolls needed to be replaced upon our arrival.

4. The left sink in the master bedroom drains very slowly and appears to be clogged.

5. As a health care professional I was uncomfortable with the “previously used" bars of soap in every shower.

6. Although we were lucky the weather was warm, I wish we had been told prior to our arrival the pool would not be heated. I reread your VRBO description and the “polar bear” experience as stated in the Welcome binder was not documented in VRBO add.

7. Bed pillows should be replaced in Master Bedroom. There was significant amount of yellow and blood stains on several of the pillows.

They have never responded to my email. The owners describe the home as a "luxury hide-away in the Wine country", I believe the owners need to put more of an effort into preparing their home for rental or reduce their rates. These are the reasons, I gave 3 stars.

Great house with a ton of space and amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

The house was great. There was more than enough space for the 9 people in our party. The grounds were perfect to let our kids go out and play, as well. The décor was modern and made the house feel very comfortable and warm. It's perched on the very top of a hill which provide excellent views of the surrounding area, whether you are outside on the deck on inside taking advantage of the huge windows in the main living space. It's about an hour away from the Napa Valley depending on which road you take, but the drive is manageable. This house is perfect for a weekend spent in Sonoma, though. When we arrived it was very clean and everything was easily accessible. It was also very secure given the location and gate at the entrance. We had a bit of an issue at the beginning of the weekend because I didn't read all of the instructions (user error), but when I called the owner she was quick to respond and very helpful. Highly recommended if you have a large party, or just want to get away to work on your novel.
