Guestbook comments from the manager

Everything was beautiful and much more than we expected. The furnishings, flowers and decor was beautiful. We would love to return and also tell our friends and family to plan their visits at the same place.

Like an European vacation

The Starfire home is such a gem! Location was perfect - near Casino, Solvang, golf courses and wineries. Home was exquisitely decorated, we appreciated all the attention to detail to make our stay very comfortable. Kitchen is well stocked with everything we needed to prepare meals and BBQ. The multiple patios were lovely in the mornings for coffee, and late afternoons to enjoy the wines we purchased during the day. Rental agency was very efficient and helpful too. We all agreed to return to the Starfire again soon.

Just came back from an AMAZING stay at the vineyard! This home is absolutely beautiful and well maintained. Our group of 6 gathered here for our annual girls' getaway. We could not have asked for a more relaxing venue as this one offered. Both owner Lucinda and rental coordinator Jillian were helpful and accommodating. Highly recommend this place and look forward to going back someday!

Our group of 6 loved everything about our stay at the chateau. We were celebrating our reunion of a trip we enjoyed together in Provence a few years back - and I must say this was an ideal venue! The local market is fabulous - we cooked in a couple of meals. Local restaurants and wineries were lovely. Rooms are so spacious and elegant.

The Perfect Escape

  • 5 of 5

Starfire Vineyards is a dream come true. It is easy to relax because there is nothing left undone. The owners have compiled a binder of winery and restaurant suggestions with easy to follow directions. And if dining out is not your plan, the kitchen is perfectly stocked with everything from cutlery to pots and pans. We chose to BBQ and enjoy the stillness of the vineyard and setting sun. I cannot wait for a return visit and try another of the beautifully decorated bedrooms!

Thank you Starfire Vineyards

The property was in an amazing location! The home was just what the Doctor ordered, soooo relaxing and beautiful. This home made our vacation very memorable. We were able to make meals and enjoy each others company. The owners overlooked NOTHING, we felt very welcome from the moment we walked in the door. We received our deposit back with in the week.
