Fantastic group house!

September 30, 2015

My husband and I rented this house for 5 couples for a long weekend to celebrate my 30th birthday. The property was amazing! Spread out, beautiful decor, and amazing pool! It was also close to town so when we wanted to go into the square it was a short bike ride or 3 minute uber. I will definitely be staying here again!

Great home base for wine country exploration

September 30, 2014

Runningwood lives up to the expectations set by its beautiful pictures and rave reviews. Minutes from downtown Sonoma, and quick access to Napa Valley, it is an ideal location from which to explore the best of wine country. When the day is done there is no better place I can imagine to relax and refuel. Highly recommend!

Nicest house we've vacationed in - by far

August 5, 2014

This house is amazing! We stayed for 7 nights, and cut way back on our wine tours just so we could spend more time at the house. The combination of the beautiful location, beautiful home, whole house sound system which extends to the patio and pool, smooth jazz from the satellite, fantastic view, wonderful pool and hot tub etc - we'd all stay here again.

Fantastic Holiday Retreat

January 1, 2013

My family just returned from a wonderful holiday at Runningwood. The house was gorgeous with numerous amenities. We loved the large, open kitchen where my whole famiy was able to be together to prepare our meals. The landscaping on the property was beautiful and we used the hot tub every evening to relax after a day full of activities. The view there was magnifcent! We definitely hope to return for another family vacation soon and have already recommended the property to friends and family.

Sonoma Getaway

Gorgeous 3+ bedroom villa with spectacular views...easy access to Sonoma, but felt very secluded and private. Amazing terrace and pool...very functional and large kitchen. Would definitely return!

Most gorgeous house in Sonoma!

December 20, 2012

As we were driving into Sonoma, I saw this incredible house on top of a hill surrounded with vineyards and said, "check out that house! i'm sure that's where we're staying". I was kidding at the time, but the best part was when we drove up and realized that it was, in fact, our house! Runningwood is gorgeous. Very clean and spacious. The back patio/pool area has the best view in all of Sonoma. The house is full of windows so you can appreciate the nature around you. We will definitely be returning to Runningwood!

Wonderful Weekend

Rented this property for my family to stay during our wedding in Sonoma. The property far exceeded our expectations! One of the most beautiful homes I'm guessing in all of Sonoma. The view was incredible, the owner was very helpful & the house was very clean. We will definitely return!

Amazing Weekend in Sonoma!

April 4, 2011

We had the most amazing weekend at Runningwood in Sonoma. It was a girls getaway weekend filled with wine tasting and relaxing and this was the perfect house to stay in! The views are amazing and the house is cozy and comfortable. Relaxing in the spa at night under the stars was great and the quiet in the morning was wonderful. I would recommend Runningwood to any of my family and friends!

A great place for a special event or to get away

October 9, 2010

My husband and I rented Runningwood for one week and used the property for our rehearsal dinner and wedding. The home is beautiful and clean, and we had a very comfortable, relaxing stay here. For our wedding, this was the perfect location and setting. Just 5 minutes away from Sonoma town square, it was very convenient for our guests to stay nearby. The homeowner is very nice and accomodating, and he doesn't make you get portable toilets! He made every effort to meet or exceed our expectations so our wedding weekend would be perfect. He also worked with our vendors whenever we asked for his help during the planning process. The view from the property is gorgeous. We highly recommend this property for a vacation or for a special event with up to 100 people. It is expensive, but you most certainly get what you pay for!

My family & I had an amazing trip to Sonoma, the house and owner allowed it to be extra special. No words can express the feel of the house and Oh my God,, the view. We felt as if we traveled across the ocean to Italy. From the moment we booked or reservation, to the moment we departed, the owner of the property was available to provide us with what ever we needed. We will be back, God willing,our next trip to this area. Much Thanks to Rudy and his family for allowing us such a pleasure..

Owner Supplied Testimonials

We just loved the house when we stayed for the weekend. We spent the day on the patio by the pool and then at night we stayed outside but in the heated spa. What a lovely view of the valley. We recommend it highly. Five stars. -[Tanya]

I am familiar with the neighborhood and the property. I have stayed at Runningwood many nights and hate to leave each time. If its not the natural wildlife and botanical surroundings that capture my attention, it the house and pool itself. The level of detail given to the house is superior to any residential dwelling I know of. The layout offers great backgrounds for both casual and intimate gatherings, or more formal social philanthropic events. The property is and in my opinion still remains the most attractive real estate in the Sonoma wine country. The rates may be slightly higher than other properties in the wine country, but the experience you acquire is worth ten times the rate. I very much recommend spending time at Runningwood, particularly in August and September.
