Description

Green Valley Retreat is a magnificently remodeled home with high-end taste. It's a wine county gem in an agricultural community celebrated for the Farm to Table food movement. Charming and renowned restaurants and wineries are minutes away, but you can pick fresh produce from the massive guest garden and (newly planted) orchard. Additional fruit trees are scattered throughout the property. With a large in-line gas BBQ on the back deck, and choice dining in or outside, guests love cooking in as much as going out. The kitchen boasts plentiful counter space, deluxe appliances and quality accessories.

The attention to details like original artwork, ample lighting, 60+ inch TV and access to fresh cut flowers from the garden make for an excellent retreat. The main house boasts 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms along with an office/laundry room, and living and dining areas off the large kitchen. Just outside - off the back deck - are an additional full bathroom and an outdoor shower for your trips to the pool and hot tub (built into the pool).

The Pool House offers an additional sleeping space with a Queen Murphy bed and sleeper sofa in case your group isn't all couples - the maximum occupancy is still 6 people total. It's also a media room - perfect for movie time - and things like a break from the sun and gourmet coffee station.

In addition to the gardens and front yard orchard, the backyard contains a meadow of native bunch grasses - not your typical lawn - along with a stand of redwood trees, oodles of flowers, multiple seating areas, and one of our favorite built-in propane fire pits. BYOM (Bring Your Own Marshmallows). You may never want to go home!

Traveling for work? Everyone can have their own bed at Green Valley Retreat. This is an excellent location for your off-site executive retreat!

The house offered many spaces for some privacy in addition to lovely gathering areas inside and on the back deck. We enjoyed exploring the local area as well as just chilling in the hot tub and making meals. We made yummy kale salads from the garden and cut flower arrangements. We look forward to returning.-Via Airbnb

What an amazing retreat. We loved everything about this house. The gardens and surroundings are amazing and serene. The kitchen is bright, spacious and amazingly well stocked. We found everything we needed and more. The bedrooms were a great size with comfortable beds and lovely bathrooms. Everything was spectacularly clean, and the design was modern and elegant. We loved all the thoughtful touches like firewood of different sizes to help start the wood stove and detailed home instructions.

We'll be back!

Amazing home, amazing location, amazing amenities. This was beyond perfect for a quick weekend getaway to catch up with friends and escape from the weekday grind. From the first moment we stepped onto the back deck, we knew this rental would rise to the top of our short list for future getaways. Usually in a rental review I'll try to give a heads up to help future guests avoid problems, but none needed here - there are no drawbacks and only relaxation in your future. Thank you to the hosts!!

This is a great property for a weekend away! We loved the garden, the house is immaculate and well decorated, and love the automated shades, pool cover, and general investment in quality cook ware. Some small touches that would make it even more approachable: some laundry detergent, aluminum foil, and plastic wrap for folks staying here for more than a few days would make sense given how stocked the kitchen is already and there are not that many towels, which means you have to do laundry. Would come back!

This was our second stay: beautiful property: clean, functional, tasteful. Very comfortable beds, excellent linens, stocked with everything you need from the kitchen to the bathrooms.

Absolutely amazing stay and cannot wait to go back! The place is even more beautiful in person than in the pictures. A few things we loved:1. The house was sparkling clean and well decorated.2. The kitchen was beyond well stocked. Everything you could need was there and more. Bring your groceries or have Whole Foods deliver and you never have to leave!3. The whole house is hooked up to a Sonos sound system and you can play Spotify music with a touch of a button.4. The garden is out of this world - plenty of fresh lettuce, chard, and winter greens. 5. The beds were comfy and there were plenty of pillows and extra blankets.A few minor tweaks on a basically perfect house:1. The deck had splinters, could use a fresh seal.2. Bring your own coffee ground or beans!3. The bath towels were pretty starched and crisp and were uncomfortable.All in all, we will definitely be back. I cannot recommend this home enough!

Our stay at Green Valley Retreat exceeded our expectations in every way. The house is aesthetically beautiful, but also practical and well-designed for guest use. The kitchen was well-stocked and had everything a home cook could possibly want. The pool was amazing and the temperature perfect. House was immaculate and welcoming. We loved the quiet and peacefulness of the area. The garden is AMAZING and we made daily use of the fresh herbs. We truly loved this home and look forward to returning!

The house was immaculately kept, everything labeled to make easy to find and operate lights and appliances. It was very tastefully designed from interior to landscape, brilliantly thought out, and constructed in a very high quality manner. It just felt like home (maybe better) from the moment we walked in. All features were exactly as advertised. A real treat. By far the best rental we have stayed at over the years.

Six flight attendants gathering for a very special birthday! The house is amazing-the pictures really do not do this beautiful house justice. The kitchen has everything that you can ever want or need for cooking and entertaining. The bed was very comfortable and the bathrooms were nicely appointed. The out door space was truly amazing, we loved the pool and the fire pit. The garden was very lovely and we picked fresh herbs everyday for our meals. We did feel that the quite hours where very strict, but that really wasn't a big deal. The biggest complaint that I had was when we arrived the outdoor trash and recycling bins where full to the brim already. We ended up taking our recycling to Whole Foods to dump in there recycling bins. I did email the email provided about this issue, but did not receive a response. All and all it was a amazing house and help create amazing memories. We hope to come back very soon!Source: VRBO Manager Response:  I am so glad to hear you and your group had a wonderful time at Green Valley Retreat. It is a truly beautiful property, and I completely agree, the photos don't do it justice. I'd like to apologize for not responding to the email regarding the trash bins. Our office missed the communication. We appreciate you handling the situation. While quiet hours may seem strict, it may help to know that vacation rental quiet hours are set in place and enforced by the County of Sonoma (along with occupancy and parking standards) and are a much better alternative to an outright ban on vacation rentals. We really appreciate guests like yourself who read and follow these standards. It keeps our neighbors happy and our industry in good standing. So, thank you! We hope to have you back again sometime soon! Ellen -Russian River Vacation Homes

This was the most gorgeous rental I have stayed in, in a perfect location in wine country! Our one year old twins loved the pool, which has a nice wading area as well as a deep end. Taking in the stars in the hot tub was excellent. The kitchen was stocked with top end appliances and gear, which made cooking a treat. My only advice would be to wear shoes on the outdoor deck as we got a few splinters. Can't wait to come back!!

Beautiful property. Even better when you get it at the offseason rate. It is perfect for entertaining but the strict rules in regards to occupants/visitors really limits the opportunity.-Airbnb Guest-From Russian River Vacation Homes:Thank you so much for staying with us! We are so glad that you enjoyed the house - and the off season rate! =) We shall hope to host you again! Sonoma County does have very specific occupancy and quiet hour criteria that all homes must adhere to in order to be permitted. Green Valley Retreat can have 8 people during the day, and 6 guests overnight. Quiet hours are from 10:00pm to 9:00am, and the extra two day guests would need to leave the property by the time quiet hours begin. We appreciate our guests cooperation with this criteria. =)

Loved this property, and my husband who is a Chef loved this kitchen. We've stayed in many different vacation homes and this one by far exceeded our expectations in the kitchen department. It was stocked with every kind of utensil and appliance needed, plenty of platters and plates for our Christmas dinner. The setting was beautiful, and so relaxing. The perfect getaway from the city. I do wish that there was a TV in the living room of the main house (we missed our yule log) but we quickly were able to adapt and entertain ourselves.Cant wait to come back during the summer and enjoy the pool!!

We rented this house over Thanksgiving weekend and it was fantastic. The house and property are in exceptional condition and the house is very well stocked and organized. There is everything you need to cook, dine, read, and play (even games for kids too!). The surroundings are peaceful and quiet. The hot tub/spa is new and so nice. All of the information provided about the area is great too. We know (and love) this area of Sonoma well and all recommendations and nearby listings are excellent and spot on.
