Magical venue

  • 5 of 5

The charm of Rancho Wikiup still lingers after our recent visit. This unique and intriguing venue was perfect for our family of 16. All of the bedroom areas are so quiet and private which worked perfectly for several of family members who have small children. The courtyard is lovely and provided a friendly greeting in the morning and again in the evening as we enjoyed the beautiful Santa Rosa weather. Fully equipped kitchen was a bonus. Loved the artwork displayed throughout the house and yard. Thank you for sharing your the Wikiup!

Beautiful villa, perfect for a group vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

We had six adults and nine kids here and it was WONDERFUL!! Plenty of space to play, relax, and everything you would need to cook for the masses. The house is so interesting - there are endless places for kids to explore or relax. Truly a spectacular vacation for all of us. Thank you!!

Relaxing and spacious retreat close to local amenities and attractions.

  • 5 of 5

We gathered here to celebrate a milestone birthday with a small group of friends and family. The kitchen was perfect for collaborative cooking for some while the outdoor seating provided a lovely happy hour location. And once the gourmet meals were done the dining room was ideal for our group to assemble. Plenty of space for folks to have some quiet time and perfect gathering spots for conversations.

Each of the rooms is comfortable and well appointed. There are some bathroom logistics to keep in mind as this is a reconfigured stable so not all rooms have adjoining bathrooms thus there is a bit of sharing that needs to take place. Not a problem just something to be aware of.

Nancy was easy to communicate with and we would most definitely come back here again.

The accommodations were quirky in the best possible way!

  • 4 of 5

We rented out the converted stable as home base for a large family get together. Nancy was very responsive. We had a fabulous time, the kids were able to run around in the enclosed court yard which is bigger then you think. This is a great spot for large gatherings.
