Green Valley Retreat

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!

Pool & Hot Tub Temperatures:
The pool is solar heated Memorial Day through September to approx 82°. It is not heated the rest of the year. It will be cold, but you may still use it. The hot tub is built into the pool.

It does not operate between midnight and 7 am.

In the backyard is a meadow of native bunch grasses. It is not a lawn and is not mowed like a lawn. The grass is very sturdy and more drought tolerant. Feel free to walk, run, romp and play in the meadow!

There are several sets of 2 to 4 steps throughout the property - all outside. Inside the main house and the main front and back decks are all on one level. The Pool House is a separate building and down 3 or 4 steps depending which path you take.

We had a fantastic time in your very beautiful both inside and out house in Sebastopol. Everything is sparkling clean, decorated in good taste and fully fully equipped! We loved being inside and outside at beautiful pool and deck. My wife was thrilled to spend her birthday there with her family! We have rented many homes and none of them compare to this one! A piece of heaven!

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!

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

We stayed at this property for a family weekend and had a wonderful time. The house was amazing and exceeded expectations. The kitchen was a joy to work in and made it possible to have some fantastic meals. Great location with easy access. We're planning to come back and stay during the summer so we can enjoy the amazing back yard and pool!

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. Our time there felt truly restorative.

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. =)

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!!
