We had our daughter wedding here...

  • 5 of 5

If you are wanting the most amazing wedding venue...this is the place...not only is it a very elegant , classy and impressive place....but the people, Helen and Humberto are a dream to work with in every way.... all we heard all night long was what a wonderful venue...we agreed.

the catering company provided the best wedding food we have ever had at a wedding....everyone raved about it...so different than any other ....the bartender that they provided (for an extra fee) was worth every penny.....she was amazing and all the guest really enjoyed her...this was my daughter and her husband's dream wedding....a lot of the guest said it was the best wedding they had ever gone too...all thanks to this amazing place!!!!!

This place was amazing and everyone had a great time!

  • 4 of 5

There were 19 of us and we all had an excellent vacation here. We all voted for the review and came up with an average of 4.2, and 9 of us had the following comments to add:

Beautiful location with amazing amenities, but wish the honeymoon suite had proper doors.

It's a nice facility. I like the jacuzzi.

Overall the location was very lovely, but minor details in the honeymoon suite could be upgraded like wallpaper, new curtains, etc.

It was a great venue for a large gathering.

Loved the in door (air conditioned) Spa. Beautiful location, beautiful house, solid amenities. Spa and Pool were not cleaned to my standards.

This place was awesome. Only real complaint is that the pool and spa were cloudy the first two days, which was a disappointment.

Living arrangements as promised, spa and pool in poorly maintained quality.

Although the place is showing a bit of wear, it was well maintained, the view was gorgeous, and it was very clean! Loved the pool and the side eating area.

Great place to stay. Considering how expensive the place is, I wish the internet was comparable; it was flaky and felt like it was from the 90s'.

Thank you for having us!!

Owner's Response: Thank you James for your review. Your feedback is very important to us, to help us continually improving the property and better serving our guests. Regarding the pool and spa, there was a big party prior to your group, they have used the pool heavily, plus there was a heat wave in our area that week, the temperature reached above 110F, and it rained as well, the Property Manager did his routine pool cleaning, he actually did more thorough cleaning than normal, and add more tablets to clear the water faster, but due to the above mentioned reasons, the water was cloudy by the time of your check in. He has explained to you that the water is clean but just takes some time to clear out. He came back the next morning, the water cleared out about 90%, then he came back in the afternoon at 3pm, the water was perfectly clear. We apologize that the pool was not perfect for the day of your check in. As for the internet, what we have is DSL provided by Verizon, this is the only service we have here in the wine country area. We do not have Fios, or Cable service. Hopefully in the near future one of these companies will bring service to our area. Great to have you and family on the property, hope to see you here again!

Great Property for multi families, If booking a wedding or event READ CAREFULLY!

  • 4 of 5

I booked this property for a small family reunion and ended up deciding to have a small wedding here. I read ALL the reviews and not one mentioned anything about any additional costs So heres the REAL INFO:

Weddings:

If you want to book a wedding for this property BEWARE that the owner will try to sell you a $9,999 wedding package. If you want to plan your own wedding be prepared to fork out additional money for EVERY PERSON that walks on property beyond what is allowed. Its just another way to get money out of you.

Events:

If you want to hire someone to come make food, set up games, etc be prepared to be told you have to use the owners PREFERRED VENDORS. Its quite a headache and a bit of a run around but as long as they just DROP things off you can have people deliver, just not stay or serve on the property.

The property:

The reviews are correct. Its old, its a rental property, what should you expect? Lots of reviews complained about little things. I understand to a point but also seen about 5 maids there on 4 different occasions so I think they try their best. It is a mish mosh of well traveled decor thrown into one location. The property itself is odd and added onto in different areas. HOWEVER I think thats what makes it unique. I wouldn't want to live there but it was fun for a visit. There is more that enough room for everyone to do there own thing and it still feel like a quaint setting.

Additional Guest House:

This rents for I think $800 additional per night. Its WEIRD. Its a large room with about 10 beds in 1 room! It does have a separate kitchen and game/lounge area. Its odd and SUPER FAR from the main house and pool. Maybe it would be good if you had about 20 teenagers to throw in there but NOT COUPLES.

Staff/Owner:

The owner corresponds decently. You will meet her for the upset for the $9,999 wedding package and then she is pretty much done - She has someone manage the property, Humberto, He was AWSOME to deal with! Very helpful and accommodating. It made the trip a stress relief asking his advice and questions prior to the visit.

If I had it to do all over again I would rent the property. It was perfect for my small 40 person wedding and reception. The only reason I didn't rate this 5 star was the gouging of extra fees and the shape the property is in.

*Please note, lots of pictures are DATED on the listing and do not reflect current condition or current furnishings.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, however, lots of information in this review are NOT correct, let me clarify here so the future clients will have a clear true picture: 1) Private events: this property is very selective in regards to hosting small private events, all events have to be pre-approved. The cost of event varies depending on the size of the event and nature of the event. There is no such a thing "$9999 wedding package for small wedding of 40 guests" as described in this review. 2) The additional guest house, which we call it "Section B": As stated in our property description, it is $795 per night, additional to Section A. We made this part of the property optional, so the clients with smaller group (up to 20) can book and enjoy the property without having to pay for unneeded space of Section B. Section A alone is close to 12,000 sqft, it has 7 bedrooms and can accommodate up to 20 guests. Section B has about 10,000 sqft, with 4 large bedrooms, a large kitchen and family entertainment room. one of the 4 bedrooms has one king sized bed, two bedrooms have two queen sized beds, one bedroom has 3 queen sized beds. There is NO room with 10 beds in it. Section B can accommodate up to 14 guests. In additional to 15 beds in total (Kings and Queens), we have 10 additional cots that can be placed in any bedrooms, for children to share the bedroom with parents, all sheets, blankets and pillows provided. 3) We have one booking agent and one property manager with team of staff to manage this property. This property was built in 2003, and has been very well maintained indoor and outdoor. Most clients who visited the property stated that the property is far better than the pictures, because we constantly improving the property. The light decor (the bedding, the curtains, the chairs, etc) might be different as we change them periodically as they get used. 4) We welcome our clients to come visit the property before booking. Most clients come at least one time. This client came 5 times, and we have accommodated them with courtesy.

Worth every penny!

  • 5 of 5

We met for a family reunion at this property. There were 33 of us (7 families), ages 7 weeks to 75 years old. We had an amazing time. We spent most days at the property - swimming, playing tennis, playing games. We made a few excursions to Disneyland, San Diego Zoo and the beach. The property was spacious and spread out enough that we didn't feel like we were falling over each other. It was comfortable and had all the amenities that we needed. The home is beautiful and well taken care of. I would highly recommend this to any large group looking for a place to relax and enjoy access to both LA and San Diego.

Wow factor throughout the house!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house with plenty of room for our 22 member family reunion. While house could use some maintenance ( murky pool, missing tiles from roof), the incredible detail and expense in design and furnishings made us truly feel we were living in a palace. Chef Julio and his team from Europeanpersonalchef.com gave us a fantastic catered dinner. Weather was hot but we did a lot, including hot air ballooning, wine tasting, and trips to San Diego beach and zoo. A great trip!!

Beautiful home that made our summer vacation memorable

  • 5 of 5

This amazing home was full of beautiful art pieces, would find something interesting to look at each time I walked down the spacious hallway. Comfort throughout the entire house, the children really enjoyed the pool, game room and the movie theater. This is a perfect location for a larger sized family or big event. Peaceful, relaxing, yet fun for the children to enjoy themselves. Good for family vacation and to spend time with one another.
