I have just returned from a family holiday in California ,the first week of which we spent in this wonderful property in gorgeous Calistoga.
From start to finish this house was a superb base for a wonderful week .The house has everything one could need -and more!
Wonderful huge pool ,hot tub ,excellent garden space and total privacy and yet set amongst the comfort and safety of houses close by .We awoke in the mornings to a swim and watched the sun rise over the close by hills .Within hours we were charmed and won over.Within days we felt at home (if only!!) .More than enough garden furniture ,three outside tables ,and wonderful veranda space gave us everything we looked for .
Inside -the quality continued.Excellent kitchen equipment,well stocked with all the kitchen requirements one could ever have .The well stocked fridge and cupboards ensured that we did not have to rush out immediatly for small essentials.Our kids and i played pool before going out every night ,and sometimes after lunch .
To have a computer available was brilliant allowing us to check up restaurant reviews,plan trips and even catch up on the news back home.(we smiled guiltily when we checked the bad weather back in ireland every morning!!)
The bedrooms were comfortable ,charming and ideal .
A little walk into town in the morning gave us access to one of the friendliest communities of people it has ever been my pleasure to meet.Superb restaurants ,great coffee houses and wonderful collection of shops gave us plenty to see ,do and engage with .
And in such connectivity for all of those other wonderful napa valley towns.
The owner Robert was a gentleman to deal with from start to finish and i have no doubt that he and I will be talking again for we will most deffinitely be back!
To sum it all up in a word???.......superb .
I felt that i was sharing someones home and not merely a vacation property.
I would thoroughly recommend this property -and would be convinced that a good time would be had by all .
As i said in my intro -its cool ,calm and oh so collected.
A gem ,and we were delighted to be allowed share its lustre.
Until next time ....we look forward .
