Syrah House

$595-$975 per night (2/3 Night Min. Includes Pool Use)

Syrah House is a comfortably elegant, two-story contemporary Sonoma Valley Vacation Rental that sleeps six. A bower of fragrant vines frames the entryway and winds around the deck, inviting you to step inside. The first floor with its flowing design encourages congenial interaction and also allows for leisurely moments to unwind. Newly decorated with top quality furnishings that include handcrafted pieces, original art, antique accents and modern furniture, all artfully arranged, Syrah House has every amenity.

Cooks will love the spacious kitchen with plentiful counter space and preparation areas. Equipped with a Wolf gas range, double ovens, large sinks and a walk-in pantry, it has absolutely everything you need to prepare a festive meal with friends and family or an intimate dinner for two.

The dining room, with its open plan, can easily accommodate eight guests at the carved rectangular table, or take advantage of Sonoma's ideal climate and dine al fresco outdoors in the huge entertainment area by the pool. Gather some of the bounty of the region for your meal as you explore wine country. Sonoma Valley has world-renown locally grown produce, farm-raised meats and artisan cheeses, olive oils and, naturally, great wines all available nearby.

Get cozy in front of the marble fireplace in a butter-soft leather chair or watch the fire's glow together from the down-stuffed couch in the in the living room and sip a glass of wine from one of the many small producers that are making award-winning vintages in Sonoma.

Up a broad staircase is the second level, a light-filled expanse with vaulted ceilings, Berber carpeting and a more playful, casual feel. A media and recreation room features a big-screen TV/DVD/gaming center concealed in an armoire and two couches for competitors or viewers. A section of the upper floor is devoted to more active exercise, with a jogging machine, a Foosball tabletop soccer game and plenty of built-in counter and bookcase space where you can log onto the Internet or download your favorite YouTube videos. Wi-Fi is available throughout the house.

There are two generous bedrooms on this floor of the vacation rental: a king and a queen, done in subtle tones of cream and cocoa. You�ll enjoy the finest bedding with luxurious mattresses and linens that will enfold you in soothing comfort. The bedrooms share a large bathroom with white tiled floors, a contemporary sink and vanity, toilet and a shower and bathtub. Both bedrooms look out to serene views of trees in brilliant shades of green with the happy song of the chattering birds in the daytime and the relaxing sounds of the water fountain in the center courtyard at night.

The master bedroom is on the first floor -a 400-square-foot room with a deliciously restful king bed and gorgeous bed linens. The sage green walls are accented by aubergine-toned window treatments and the windows look out to lovely trees and porch railings laced with vines, filling the room with subdued natural light. The TV is suspended from the ceiling and there is a seating area, table and a large walk-in closet. The en-suite bathroom has a polished tile vanity and stone tile floors, and a large tile stall shower for two with dual shower heads. A private exit door leads from the bedroom to the rear yard with its rose-covered fences, wide lawns and fruit trees.

The eco-friendly landscaping blends with heritage trees that surround the property to create a private setting. Step outside and experience the special feel that each day brings. Share a morning coffee as the dew sparkles in the sun, stroll the grounds and decide to drain those cares away in the in-ground hot tub spa, with its Zen-like environment among Japanese Maples and stately trees. When the sun is high in the sky, dive into the turquoise-blue pool for a refreshing swim, then relax on the teak deck chairs, or gather round for a barbeque at the outdoor kitchen and dining area complete with everything you need to create a fresh and tasty lunch. Then stoke the coals in the lava rock firepit and end your day watching the sensational sunsets of blue and gold as they give way to a ceiling of stars too numerous to count. Subdued outdoor lighting guides your way throughout the grounds.
