Such a great spot, on Main Street, but away from the crowd. Plenty of parking, not squeezed between other homes, view of vineyards and pasture even cows. A true vacation with hot tub, dipping pool and basket ball court and much more.

Really enjoyed it.

  • 5 of 5

Loved the convenient location, the setting in the vineyards, the privacy offered by each of the 3 bedrooms (each with its own separate outdoor access), and the large communal kitchen area. Highly recommend.

The rooms are elegant, the kitchen is the attraction. Meanwhile a hot tub, pool, and dog run. Couldn't be a better choice. Did i mention the tasting room next door? 6 stars. Volume to 11.

A great girls' getaway weekend

  • 5 of 5

We knew after meeting and talking to Jeannine at the winery that we had to rent the villa. My family has a teeny home off Murphys Grade Road but it's really only good for hosting a few people. Luckily the perfect occasion for renting the Villa presented itself a week later, and the weekend we were looking at had magically had a cancellation so we were able to swoop in and reserve it.

Beyond the perfect location for enjoying wine tasting in Murphys (startijng with some of the most delicious right out the door at Val du Vino), the Villa was so comfortable for our group. We had four adults and 4 children, so the large kitchen and multiple dining area options were key and we had lots of fun preparing meals together in the beautiful kitchen. And on the night when we were all too tired to cook, we took a short walk to Firewood where there's a nice low-key vibe and options for hungry folks big and small.

We spent an entire day with the kids in the pool, which was something we were so grateful for as the temperature was well over a 100 that weekend. Although it's small, it was perfect for our young crew (age ranges 18 months - 9 years old).

All of the bedrooms were comfortable and having three full bathrooms was great (since we were a household of girls-only for the weekend).

While we love our little Murphys house, I will definitely be renting the Villa again in the future. Especially since my little nieces told me over and over how much they loved our weekend together. Such a treat!

We love this place....

  • 5 of 5

Not fancy but fully equipped for a fabulous visit to Murphy's. Walk to town, cook, swim, hang out. We are three couples and this house is perfect for us, three bedrooms, three baths, big kitchen for group cooking, gas BBQ and the winery has terrific wines. We've been here for three visits and are working on next year's trip already. Highly recommend!

Gorgeous and perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We came into town to hear matchbox 20 on Monday night. We arrived on Sunday, and it was an easy stroll into town for an amazing dinner at a funky little restaurant with fairy lights. The next day we headed up to big trees state park, we had had a great hike , And then we headed back to Murphy's for some great shopping, and the house was in walking distance to the concert. The rooms are big and spacious the bathrooms are beautiful the kitchen was lovely. Everything about this place was phenomenal.

Owner's Response: Thank you Debbie for your kind comment on the Villa. You can come back anytime and visit us in Murphys, hopefully we will not miss you next time you come. Hopefully the heat was not too hard on you and the pool helped. All went well with Jonathon we are really relieved and happy. Stay in touch. Cheers, Jeannine
