About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Step onto the terrace for a massage with one of our recommended masseurs or take an afternoon swim in in the 50 foot pool-with-a-view and you will feel like you are in your own private resort. Solisombra is a luxury hide-away in the Wine country available year-round for discerning guests. If you and your group appreciate design,setting and amenities a cut above the standard vacation rental property, you will not be disappointed.

The property consists of a contemporary three bedroom, two and one-half bath main house, plus a Craftsman style one bedroom, one bath guest house, on a ridge-top location with spectacular 280-degree views of the vineyards of Sonoma Valley.There are five very private, fenced and gated acres, much of them level or gently sloping with mature oak and olive trees--ideal for relaxing with your family or friends.

The large, well-appointed gourmet kitchen has a six-burner Viking range, two convection ovens, a wine refrigerator, and concrete/steel counters. There is formal indoor dining for twelve people, casual outdoor dining for 12+.

The spacious master bedroom boasts a separate stereo system, television w/ DVD/VCR, satellite service w/HBO. The master bath has a two-person, Japanese-style soaking tub and a detached slate shower w/ skylight. New in 2008: Hardcourt Tennis court w/ basketball hoop.

All bedrooms have Frette bathrobes, 620 thread-count linens and tasteful furniture.In addition, there is 1500 square feet of decking for outdoor dining and relaxing, a lap pool with an automatic cover and a 6-person outdoor hot tub with a beautiful view of the Mayacamas mountains and the Sonoma valley.*

Secluded yet only five minutes from the award-winding wineries of the northern Sonoma Valley. 12 miles from Sonoma Plaza, ten miles to Santa Rosa; 30 minutes to the Russian River and Napa valley. Child friendly. Completely remodeled in 2002. This is not a party house. WE DO NOT ALLOW EVENTS OR PARTIES OF ANY KIND! SORRY!!

Quiet Hours: 10PM - 7 AM

Maximum No of Guests: 12 (not including children under 3)

Maximum No of Cars: 1 per bedroom

*Note: On October 9, 2017 Sonoma County was ravaged by several large wildfires. Luckily, though some of the vegetation on our property was burned, the house, the guest house and 99% of our beautiful old oak trees made it through unscathed. We will be closed until October 31, 2017 to repair the landscaping, but we will be accepting rentals again after that. Thank you to everyone for all your support and kind words. From previous experience, we know that nature has a way of recovering quickly from wildfires. It's almost as if the plants were waiting for the moment to show up and shine. We have no doubt that this will happen in the Sonoma Wine Country as well.

Secondly, despite what one might think, the huge majority of the wineries and vineyards did not burn-- vineyards are fire resistant due to the wide spacing of the vines and the practice of plowing/weeding in-between the vines. They will re-open almost immediately.

A Hilltop Wine Country Oasis

  • 5 of 5

Stunning property.

A wine country oasis nestled atop a hill will sweeping 360 degree views of the valley below. The photos, while beautiful, don't do it justice. The owners have a refined sense of style -- from a beautiful art collection, to plush custom concrete kitchen counters -- this VRBO is without question a cut above the rest. The was also incredibly well stocked -- even a professional chef would be hard pressed to find a gadget or gizmo missing.

The hosts were also lovely, always available when we had a question about the property -- both in advance while we were planning the trip (great reference for on-site massage therapists) and during (when we couldn't figure out how to work the pool cover).

I hope to have the opportunity to come back and spend another weekend at this gorgeous property.

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.

The house was completely equipped for a perfect family holiday, the bedrooms lovely and the kitchen fully supplied for every occasion. The hot tub and tennis court were excellent. We enjoyed everything.

Perfect home for our family to spend Thanksgiving together.

  • 5 of 5

We chose to go to the wine country for Thanksgiving, despite the recent fires and were very glad that we did. We were looking for a home that could accommodate three generations of our family, and the four bedrooms including a guest cottage were perfect - giving us enough space to easily sleep 6-8.

The chef kitchen was fully equipped, with room enough to inspire "the kids" to pitch in and help out with preparation of meals including Thanksgiving dinner, as well as "cleaning up" - hooray!

The setting is beautiful, and even in the Fall, we could eat brunch outside on the patio. The tennis court was used; unfortunately pool and hot tub were out of commission because of the recent fires. Thank you to Tineke and Will for sharing your beautiful home with us.

Beautiful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The house and the setting are spectacular. We stayed for 4 nights but wanted to stay forever. Convenient to the vineyards of Sonoma and Napa. I would suggest visiting them in the late morning and then returning to the house for the remainder of the day. Really hope we can return soon! Already missing it
