Thank you very much for letting us stay at your beautiful house. We had a blast and would love to return someday soon. We will be leaving shortly and already miss this place.
Have you ever looked for a retreat that was your idea of Paradise? We found it in this Estate the moment we drove through the gates. Water was flowing beautifully in a multi-tiered natural recycled waterfall. The vineyard was blushing with vines & grapes. We forgot we were in the California Wine Country and were transported back to our fondest moments of the lovely French wine countryside. Locally grown flowers and wine awaited us. The gracious hosts went above and beyond when accommodating us from reservations to departure. Erica helped us arrange Spa Services from Napa, Wine Tours, Dinner Reservations, Cooking Classes, Olive Tastings and an excellent Private Chef who prepared a dinner that rivaled anything we have had from other private chefs and restaurants. The Chef has prepared meals for many illustrious guests who have stayed at the Estate. The estate provided private spaces for each member of our group as well as great shared spaces where we all could happily enjoy wine, relax and dine together. The cleanliness of the house is of the highest standard. All the bedrooms are individually decorated with very comfortable beds. The decor has many unique art pieces from around the world and a very extensive original art collection. The updated kitchen provides everything you could ask for and perfect for and is perfect for a private chef to entertain and cook in. The pool area with spa and outdoor dining is magnificent. The entire Estate is set in a very peaceful setting with gorgeous landscaping and flowering plants and trees. Jasmine vines scent the air by the pool. We could have enjoyed a wonderful vacation without ever leaving the Estate. For those who don’t want to escape reality there is good Wi-Fi access throughout the house and HD flat screens that have DirecTV with DVR. If you’re looking for a beautiful wine country experience with all the R&R's, rest, relaxation, recreation, renewal, reconnecting, look no further. This is it! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
Many things about this property are not as advertised &/or omitted to prevent a thorough evaluation. This is a large house with multiple bedrooms. When I requested further information prior to booking, the agent would not give me the exact address - only the neighboorhood where the condo is located. The apparent reason for this is that the house is surrounded by properties with farm animals. There were donkeys in a pen directly behind the pool area. When the wind blows in certain directions, the odor of the nearby animal waste & the animals (horses, donkeys, llamas, & camels- yes camels) come drifting into the property.
The house is at least 30 years old with outdated decor; garage space for 5 cars that is all locked up; broken screen doors; no central ac or heating; WIFI does not work most of the time/ limited to 15 gb/month- forget streaming a movie near the end of the month-poor to absent internet service; half of the outside lighting did not light up; CARETAKER WOULD NOT ANSWER MY PHONE CALLS; half of the mattresses / box springs needed replacement - they were squeaky & you could feel the springs; no stopper for bathtub in master bath- could not use it; dead fallen tree across back yard during my stay; & 10 to 15 min drive to downtown Sonoma.
HERE ARE THE POSITIVES: The outdoor pool area is as beautiful as in the pictures on the webpage with beautiful pool jacuzzi, & landscaping; interesting artwork; this house is quite spacious; & interesting farm down the street with camels, emu, llama & donkeys (interesting to view - not good to smell)
The Estate was the ideal property for our group, which ranged 8-10 guests over the stay. All 5 bedrooms are lovely with quality linens and many nice touches. The kitchen is great to cook in but we ate out all the time in the great restaurants close by. There is lots of space indoors and out. We love the beautiful pool and spa. The property is very nicely groomed. The property was able to accommodate all of the 4 cars in our party within the gates with no problem. We wish we could give it more than 5 stars because it deserves it. The house grounds, pool and setting are all spectacular. We were referred by another guest who stayed at the estate who is an international travel agent. She also recommended some great Napa wineries that were an easy and close drive from the property. Many thanks again for letting us stay in your beautiful property.
My friends and I live all over the US and Canada, and due to a conference in SF, wanted a Sonoma getaway that was close to town, but allowed us quiet time to just hang out together. This was ideal. It has the most amazing location, just an 8 minute drive to downtown Sonoma, but still removed enough that it is surrounded my Sonoma's most breathtaking nature. The house is great, lots of room, great spaces to sit around and chat while sipping wine and playing games, a well stocked kitchen, and the towels and other supplies are all perfectly appointed. We had 10 people, and though that is the near max, there was still so much space.
But, what really takes the prize here is the land / the estate. We got there and ran all over looking for the pool. After a few minutes of hiking this amazingly huge back yard that drops to a creek bed, we thought we made a mistake about there being a pool. That was until I did exploring and found the most UNREAL pool complex next door - carved into the hillside, with a vista trail, Jacuzzi, hammocks, tables and chairs, tea light lanterns. It was more spectacular than pictures could show. What a place to spend time. We only were there for a short spell, and now I know why they laughed at us and out 24 hour booking - you'd need way more time to enjoy all the offerings of this lovely home!
Looking for quality time with people you love in a place you'll love - this is it.
PS: The owner is a great communicator, making everything smooth and stress-free.
Our group of 8 were not cramped in this sizable villa. It had all we needed to relax, make meals, and entertain. The house is situated near excellent Sonoma vineyards and was perfect for us.
We visited this estate in late August with 4 other couples and had an amazing experience. This was our first time to Napa and we thought getting a house that we could all share would really create some great memories. Please note the house is actually in Sonoma about 10 minutes from the Plaza. We were so happy that we decided to stay here and Erica was very accommodating. The house itself is older with additions but still very nice and well decorated. The backyard (with pool area) is total luxury! There was plenty of room for everyone and also cool amenities like a ping pong table and basketball hoop made the guys very happy after long hours of wine tasting. We will definitely be coming back for a future trip to the Napa/Sonoma area.
