About Jacqui Smail

Jacqui was born and raised in East Lothian Scotland. She had a very successful career in the travel and tourism industry in Edinburgh for twenty five years! In 2009, Jacqui, her husband Andrew and their two sons were given the opportunity to move to Sonoma County and the rest was history!

The whole family fell in love with this stunningly beautiful part of California and wanted to share it's beauty with their nearest and dearest. When choosing their new home, they decided to buy a property that would allow for just that. Nestled in the beautiful Skyhawk area is their home with Wine Country Retreat, right on the property.

Jacqui Smail purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Jacqui Smail chose Santa Rosa

The moment I saw this property, I knew it was the one for us. It was love at first sight. I never tire of the location, the mountain views, or the bright airy feel. The choice of food and wine options are endless. We love how close it is to Annadel Park and Spring Lake where we enjoy walking.

What makes this cottage unique

The location of Wine Country Retreat is superb. The open views are quite stunning and the host is so friendly and welcoming. The property is spotlessly clean and bright. Our linens are of superior quality and the space is bright, comfortable, clean and private.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wine Country Retreat has only been open since May 2014 and already I have stayed twice! I have family in this area and come to visit often, but like my own space and what an adorable space this is. If you are looking for a charming little guest house, that is very clean, in a great location and with a delightful host. Then this is the one for you.

Look no further for a place to stay in Sonoma! This one's a must!!!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is in a beautiful home on a very quiet street in a great neighborhood. From the moment we arrived, we felt at home. The apartment is perfect! We arrived with a welcome sign on the table and a bottle of wine chilled in the refrigerator. We immediately open the wine and enjoyed it on our large, private deck (an absolute essential in my book). The apartment had everything we needed and it couldn't be in a better location. We were in the Sonoma Area for the first time and we were thrilled with the accessibility to all of the wineries we sought to visit in Sonoma and Napa. We were also just a short drive to the coast and north to the Redwoods. This vacation was on our "bucket list" and this stay made it possible!

The apartment was exactly as described. It was exceptionally clean and orderly. The owner was very gracious and completely available. We will be recommending this property to all friends and relatives who visit this area.

With absolutely no reservations, we very highly recommend Wine Country Retreat!

Tranquil Oasis

Everything was just perfect! The owner put so many extra touches to the property and was very friendly. The place was spotless and filled with anything you could need on vacation. The deck was lovely in the early evening looking out over the beautiful property. A terrific find! Would stay again in a heartbeat.

Loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed this property and would come back again! The location was perfect for access to all that the Santa Rosa area has to offer...from a day in Sonoma for wine tasting, to a day walking thru the redwoods, to a day at the ocean! It was great to have this clean and comfortable place in a quiet neighborhood to come back to at the end of our day to relax and sit on the deck, grab dinner, or watch a bit of tv. The owner, Jacqui, made us feel right at home and helped make our vacation memorable!

Beautiful, clean, relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely gorgeous vacation cottage. Everything we needed was available. Jacqui was a great host and made time to stop by when we arrived to make sure we had everything we needed.

The home was clean and spacious. Comfortable living space with a lovely view from the balcony. If we are lucky enough to visit the area again we would stay here in a heartbeat!

Thanks Jacqui!
