About the property

Mi Compania Dulce (My sweet company). A luxury hideaway for 2 in the Gold Country. Drive along the winding valley road, through beautiful vineyards and you arrive at Villa Vallecito Vineyards. As the wrought iron gates open, you climb to the top of a hill toward your personal Casita ' Mi compania Dulce' As you look to the west you are struck by the awesome sights of New Melones Lake 500 feet below.

Your eyes drink in the 360 degree views of water, hills and vineyards in a very private setting. Your one-bedroom Casita is handsomely decorated in old Mexican charm. It comes fully equipped with all the modern amenities including a nicely equipped kitchen and 2 verandas to enjoy the breathtaking views.

Visit the many local wineries in Murphy's. Tour the historic mining towns, enjoy golf at one of the local courses or ski Bear Valley. All are within 15-45 minutes of your private secluded hideaway.

Lovely California Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at the casita!! It was very well appointed for a couple with a fully outfitted kitchen, big comfy bed and endless views. The property was an easy drive from the Bay Area and we made use of its proximity to nature, visiting Calavaras Big Trees (45 minute drive) and Yosemite (2.5 hour drive). Really enjoyed Murphys as well with its nice selection of restaurants and wine tasting.

The grounds themselves were so lovely we could have had as nice a time just staying put! It was a very relaxing setting with the surrounding vineyard and constantly changing lake views.

If you're looking to stay connected, the wifi was decently fast and reliable, but the entertainment system made it a little tough to stream. We brought our own Chromecast, but the built in audio set up is more tailored to CD/DVD playing.

The layout is very open which made it great to cook together (or if you please, 1 cooks and 1 reads by the fire), but I wouldn't think it would work too well for families or a larger group.

All in all, a fantastic stay and we can't wait to come back!

Beautiful and remote

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the casita. As with the first time, the beauty and remote nature of this property is the basis of its charm. You feel as though you are away from the entire world, surrounded by vineyards and a lake.

The casita has all the basics, though if you plan to cook special meals, you may want to bring your own cookware, as the options are sparse. There is a coffee maker and filters, a BBQ, full stove/oven/microwave/fridge.

The bathroom is fully stocked with towels, shampoo/conditioner and lotion. The TV has limited channels, but they do have cable.

Ghee is the most gracious host, allowing casita guests to use the pool/spa at the main house. We will continue to come back and visit for years to come.
