Fairfield House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

THIS beautiful 2 bedroom. 2.5 bath home* is located on a private California ranch near the Wine Country. The ranch is over 300 acres, so privacy in this wonderful country setting is a treat unto itself. BUT there is so much more. The property is located just off Interstate 80 and California Highway 12. Both are major connectors to all the fun, beauty & excitement California has to offer. Hwy 12 is the route to the Wine Country & 20 minutes of driving will find you in Napa. A few more miles up the road are Yountville, St. Helena & Calistoga & all the great wineries, restaurants & shopping this area offers. Or maybe you're interested in seeing the Sonoma Wine Country. It too is an easy drive. Maybe you are looking for some city life. Traveling from The Guest House, San Francisco is 33 miles on I-80 or a delightful one hour ferry ride and California's state capitol, Sacramento, is 50 miles.

The living area is a large open space with living room area, dining & kitchen. The furnishings in the home are high quality & were chosen for this home. The large screen HD television in the living room has surround sound, satellite receiver with HBO, Showtime, Encore, Starz, DVD player, DVD library, iPod dock, iPod (5 & above iPhone adapter), stereo & AUX Plug setup for playing your own music, videos, pictures of the day, slide shows, etc through house system. There is a large gas jetted fireplace. A piano adds loads of fun if anyone plays. Full wet bar complete with glassware, wine openers, ice maker & wine frig.

The kitchen is fully equipped with all the utensils for cooking & dining. Granite counter tops throughout the kitchen. Gas cook-top, dishwasher, refrigerator/freezer, full upright freezer, & in the laundry room full size washer and dryer.

Each bedroom has a King bed and its own flat-screen television with individual satellite receiver that have HBO, Showtime, Encore, Starz.

The private bath connected to each bedroom has a tub and stall shower. All the showers are tile as are the counters. In the master bath there is a vanity & large walk-in closet.

But that's not all. Outside is the private pool, propane barbecue, extra tanks are provided, umbrella-ed dining table with 6 chairs, a double chaise lounge, 4 single chaise lounges, 4 club chairs with ottomans, conversation area with love seat, club chairs, ottomans, coffee table, ping pong, badminton, croquet, stereo speakers. PERFECT for enjoying a sunny hot day or an evening in the cooling evening air.

Greeting you upon your arrival is a delicious box of See's Assorted Chocolates a California favorite, and two bottles of Napa Valley wine, a Chardonnay & Cabernet Sauvignon. All the treats are personal favorites of mine.

Property has security gate entrance.

*Reservations are not accepted for venue type events, i.e. birthday parties, reunions, bridal showers, weddings, etc. The home is reserved ONLY for overnight stays of occupants on contract.

About Eileen Ferrari

My sister and I own the ranch. We have had so many wonderful experiences over the years we thought others might enjoy this unusual but convenient destination. Numerous attractions and destinations are noted on the map.

Eileen Ferrari purchased this house in 1960

Why Eileen Ferrari chose The Bay Area

This vacation rental was not purchased as a vacation rental, it's a ranch. My family bought the ranch in 1960. Cattle graze on the acres, horses are raised and a sophisticated country life is enjoyed. Our location is one of the best in our area. Twenty minutes to an hours drive to destinations travelers hope to see when visiting the Northern California Napa Valley and San Francisco Bay Area. My professional background is hotel management. So with my experience, knowledge and attention to detail every aspect of your stay is scrutinized, from the amenities throughout the house (cotton balls, Q-tips, bottled water, cooking spices, condiments) to the beautiful arrival gift made complete with a select bottle of Napa Valley Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon, See's chocolates and other goodies.

What makes this house unique

11 miles to Napa, 25 miles to St Helena, 33 miles to San Francisco, 50 miles to Pacific Ocean, 60 miles to Sacramento...easy connections to Highways 80, 680, 12. Lake Tahoe about a 2 hour drive.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Eileen,

Thank you so much for your hospitality—we are MOST appreciative. It was great to meet you and Ruby the Wonder Dog, Official Meeter & Greeter for the Ferrari Ranch.

What a treat to be in your beautiful home! From your driveway to walking up to the front door, it was clear that you had put a lot of careful thought and consideration into how you wanted your home to function while accommodating your guests, friends and entertaining. Everything flowed and connected perfectly together and is a great reflection of you… gracious and welcoming.

We especially liked that you joined the kitchen with the living room. When “company” comes over, everyone usually winds up in the kitchen. Now everyone can feel connected to what is going on in both areas. You did a fantastic job!

In addition, the location and piece of land is perfect. The bonus is—there is no extra charge for the horses, cows and wild life. From the horses whinny and birds chirping, to the wind gently wafting through the trees… the picture was complete of what a ranch should have and look like. You did a great job in finding this gem because you are ideally located just a few miles drive from anywhere you want to go when visiting the wine country. For us it was several day trips to tour the local vineyards. These were easy drives to and from the Ferrari Ranch.

Finally, we had a great time and as we like to say in the South, “Everything was simply lovely.” There was a new beginning and happy ending to every day… from morning yoga and coffee poolside to relaxing afternoons of “Cocktails & Croquet” on the lawn.

Great Hideaway outside of Napa

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect house for two couples. We arrived a bit early and hung out by the pool until dinner. Close to the local Costco and of course all of the wineries. Swam every morning in the heated pool. The air was cool but the pool was warm. This is the best equipped rental I have stayed at. Every amenity was what you'd expect. Would definitely return to visit more wineries.

Fabulous Home!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this house! It was so open and airy and perfectly set up for lounging and sleeping. I loved how the family room and kitchen were open to the outside pool area, but that the bedrooms were well separated. The whole house was more than efficiently stocked - better than my own home! And very close to Napa and area, as well as local restaurants. I kept telling my friends the whole time that this is my dream house if it could only be on the ocean! Did not want to leave! Thanks, Eileen, for being such a wonderful hostess!

This is a lovely, lovely house! It is beautiful and comfortable plus chocked to the brim with everything you need for a perfect vacation. We had adult children with us and we all had the very best time. We will certainly be coming back to this house! Highly recommend. Great location - close to everything but gosh so relaxing too.

Perfect location for family or friends

  • 5 of 5

We were thoroughly impressed with our stay. We were close enough to Napa, but isolated enough to enjoy a night of peace and quiet on the patio without the hustle and bustle of the city.

Comfortable near Napa

  • 5 of 5

Had a relaxing and lovely stay with my husband and two teenage girls. Everyone had a great time. As other reviewers have expressed, the house and beautiful pool are private, and amazingly well set up for cooking, hanging out and relaxing.

I'm a fussy interior designer and appreciated the comfortable furniture and decor. We got unlucky with the weather as it was extremely windy over the four days we were there. It's quite close to the highway so there's some road noise. Otherwise, perfect!
