    About this property

    Tanda Tula, Wine Country Sanctuary

    Tanda Tula means ‘place of peace’ in the Zulu language, and you will find the home and its grounds the perfect place to relax. On 1.25 flat, landscaped acres, and surrounded by vineyards, the property consists of a main house opening onto a pool, hot tub and gardens, as well as a private cottage, a barn and a studio. Main House The house consists of three stylishly appointed bedrooms, with one large tub for two, and showers in the two bathrooms. The beds all have Duxiana, Simmons Beautyrest or similar hotel quality mattresses with high thread count Egyptian cotton linens, and down duvets and pillows. There is a California king in two of the rooms, and a queen in the third. The living and dining room are furnished with modern country pieces and wine country artwork on the walls. A wood burning stove and 42 inch flat panel TVs with DirectTV and DVD player provide comfortable areas to relax around a game or to watch a movie. A high quality Sonos music system and ceiling mounted speakers throughout the house provide rich music for your stay, controllable from your phone, and wireless internet and a computer are available if you wish to stay connected. A modern kitchen with Subzero refrigerator and 5 burner chefs stove with warming tray provides everything needed for the most delicious meals. Coffee maker, French press, toasting oven, mixer, waffle maker and Wusthof chef knives are among the many appliances and accessories to this well equipped kitchen. The home is equipped with both heating and air conditioning for all seasons, as well as washer and dryer. Large French doors bring the outdoors and views of the vineyards inside from every direction. A mains connected Weber barbeque is available on the deck for outdoor cooking. The patio offers a modern concrete firepit and comfortable lounge sofas for enjoying a cheese plate and a glass of wine, while a large rustic outdoor table seats 10 comfortably under the filtered shade of the arbor. French style café tables and chairs offer additional seating under the redwood or walnut trees, and adirondacks by the pool or on the lawn are another lovely choice for relaxing. Cottage The cottage is newly remodeled and private, with open beams and a sliding barn door, sleeping two on a queen bed, and another two on a futon. Ceiling fan, heating and air conditioning help offer a good nights sleep. Well appointed shower, Bluetooth music system and flat panel TV are further amenities. Gardens and Pool The gardens offer a large lawn for throwing a ball, or a game of croquet, surrounded by palette of wine country grasses, olive trees, and a little vineyard with 8 different varietals of table grapes. Fruit trees include persimmons, plums, apples, figs, pears, nectarines, pomegranates and cherries, while a seasonal herb and tomato garden are yours to enjoy. The regulation size bocce court offers another great way to enjoy an afternoon. The hot tub warms up quickly to 104 degrees and the pool is solar heated to extend the season for its enjoyment. Several modern chaise lounges and large adjustable umbrellas set the scene for a perfect day by the pool. Studio The Studio is a classic, small and private wine country cabin, next to the main house, recently remodeled, and consisting of a well-appointed room with queen bed, 42” flat panel TV and Xbox, with beautiful French doors opening onto a private patio with French café table and chairs, in the shade of a mature redwood tree, and with commanding views of the pool and garden. The studio is detached from the main house and does not have its own bathroom, so may be more suitable for day use, depending on your needs. Barn The barn is the perfect place to enjoy a game of pool or table tennis, or for the kids to hang out and listen to music or play on the back deck. The Area Dry Creek Valley, a premium winegrowing region, is located in Northern Sonoma County, California, only an hour north of the Golden Gate Bridge/San Francisco. Renowned for its idyllic undisturbed beauty, Dry Creek Valley is home to over 9,000 acres of vineyards that carpet the intimate 16-mile long x 2-mile wide valley, floor to hillside. Visitors to Dry Creek Valley can find a complementary mix of wine country history and modern luxury in nearby Healdsburg. Only moments away from the wineries and vineyards, the quaint charm of this town has made it a popular destination for locals and tourists alike. Activities in the Healdsburg and the Dry Creek Valley include wine tasting, cycling, kayaking, hiking, spas, boating, dining, exercising, and yoga. You also have the option of hiring a personal chef.

It is a condition of the rental agreement that any security deposit will be forfeit in the event of a neighbor noise or parking complaint. TandaTula is available for a maximum of 10 overnight guests.

    A fantastic property in the Healdsburg Area

    This place was perfect for two families with kids. The house is open and had lots of areas to hang out in. We had a blast spending new years here.

    Very Special Property

    Tanda Tula is truly a special place - every guest said they'd love to return. Wine Country Sanctuary is absolutely the right description - we did not want to leave. The grounds are amazing, the home beautifully decorated and fully stocked (cleaning supplies, kitchen condiments, bathroom and shower toiletries... which I can't say for all vacation rentals). The layout is incredible... and the property is abundantly full of amenities and entertainment. The owner is also super responsive and helpful. I will return, regularly I hope!

    4/5 Good

    Beautiful home

    We had a wedding up in Healdsburg and as we are a large group decided to do a house. Place was clean. Lots of towels and linens. Stocked spice cabinet and condiments all the stuff you need for a long weekend. Grounds are perfect! We didn’t want to leave. We want to plan another trip that’s how nice the place was.

    5/5 Excellent

    Perfect Location and Awesome House

    A group of 3 teenagers, 3 moms and one godmother with dog, stayed at this property in June. Although I hesitated at the price, I loved the house and cottages so much that I am already trying to figure out when I can go back, The house truly is just a few minutes from Healdsburg, but is the perfect oasis. Really no need to leave the property, but great wineries in the area when you do. Perfect kitchen for cooking. Be aware that one of the queen sized beds is in a cottage without a bathroom - which worked fine for us. And one of the main house bedrooms is tiny -but all done with thoughtfulness and taste. Don’t hesitate, book this fabulous location. Save time to just relax by the pool.

    5/5 Excellent

    Perfect weekend away!!

    We had such a nice stay at Tanda Tula!! The home was beautiful and clean, with bottles of water and fresh fruit on every bed stand! The yard is incredible with a pool, hot tub, bocce court, basketball hoop and tons of grass. Our kids loved it all! We had a wonderful stay and will definitely be visiting again!
