BEAUTIFUL RETREAT that will exceed expectations!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is right out of a Restoration Hardware catalog!! Everything you need is here. Every room is perfect. The house has an amazing view from almost every room. Even the master bath!! It is on top of a beautiful mountain!! We were 6 couples & everyone was thrilled. We planned wine tastings daily, hot air ballon ride at sunrise, and bike tours. Our only regret was filling our days too much-- We cancelled a few reservations bc everyone wanted to spend more time relaxing in our home away from home!! We had pool time daily every evening at sunset. The kitchen is AMAZING. Owner helped us find a local chef who came and prepared a wonderful gourmet dinner & dessert. Very cozy and warm home. Beds are dreamy & comfy!!! Several outdoor areas to enjoy! We had happy hour with a different view every night!!! We are planning our trip back for 2018 and wouldn't stay anywhere else. Photos do NOT do this house justice, it will take your breathe away. Lastly: owners were a phone call away at all times, very hands on, they bent over backwards to assure that our trip was as fabulous as the house!! Wish I could add our pictures here. Spectacular home!!!

Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home surpassed my expectations. We were gathering our family for our daughters wedding at Meadowwood Resort and needed a place for our family of 6 and their spouses. It could not have been more perfect. Everyone had their own space, and my daughter the bride, was so happy to have her family all staying in the same home the night before her big day! We enjoyed long walks up and down the hill which was great exercise! We sat by the pool, and had easy dinners in the large dining area. The kids played on the grass. The home is well appointed with everything we could possibly need to make large family dinners. There are plenty of towels for the bathrooms and the pool. The small movie room was nice for down time, and of course we watched Father of the Bride there! We will be staying again!

Absolutely Breathtaking!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do NOT do this place justice! The most unbelievable views you could imagine. Each room has it's own bathroom and felt very private so it was perfect for our large group. Both the manager and the caretaker of the property were both extremely helpful and their communication and planning made our stay a success. I'd HIGHLY recommend this place and would definitely stay here again in the future!

A truly stunning home with breathtaking views!

  • 5 of 5

This home is so amazing and thoughtfully designed with every comfort imaginable. While you feel like you are a million miles away, it is just a short drive to experience everything in Napa Valley. We had a private chef cook for us and it was do delicious. The kitchen is a great gathering spot and super fun to hang out there and cook/visit/take in the views.

Amazing Estate! Booking again or next year.

  • 5 of 5

This Estate was incredible!

We stayed for the month and hosted family and friends of all ages. The home was meticulously designed and has everything you'll need to enjoy the stay. The hosts also have excellent recommendations of wineries, drivers, chefs, and more. Everyone (including their concierge) was a pleasure.

The views are incredible - we felt we were in Tuscany... It's a truly magical place. You get the feeling that you're away from it all, but have the benefit of being close enough to get to town to tour some wineries and have a meal.

Can't wait to come back next year!

Beautiful House, Terrible Experience

  • 1 of 5

If you enjoy sleeping in, being treated well, or have children, this is probably not the house for you. The house is beautiful and well decorated, but when we got there, there were no blinds on most of the windows in the bedrooms. This caused both parents and children to wake up at 5am...

Calling the owner's wife (the manager) to help rectify the situation was a terrible experience, and basically all the communication that I had with her ruined my trip. Maybe I expected too much from her. I expected her to be professional, and have some experience in hospitality. That certainly was not the case.

When I called to explain that this was a big issue (I was frustrated that such a nice and expensive house did not have blinds, but certainly was not rude or mean), the owner's wife first was extremely dismissive, and told me that no one else had this problem. Then her first suggestion was that I could leave! Then she told me that she didn't like my nasty tone multiple times, and said 'maybe I was just tired'... The way she dealt with this situation was completely unprofessional, dismissive, and condescending. She did put together a temporary solution to this issue fairly quickly.

And this was just the beginning of a series of communication with her that made me very upset during what was supposed to be a relaxing vacation. She texted me non-stop about pool charges (that of course I paid in full, just not on her tight timeline) and kept texting me to explain how expensive and hard it is to run a house like this. I'm a guest, and it's not my business to care how difficult or expensive it is to run this home. All I care about is having an enjoyable experience, which turned out to be impossible. Her continued pushing and communication about this was so unprofessional, and annoying, it was just another factor into why my interactions with her really ruined my vacation. If she worked at a hotel and dealt with customers this way, she would be fired.

The owner's wife's tone was extremely condescending and dismissive. My interactions with her were extremely unpleasant, and all in all I would never stay at this home again because those interactions ruined what was supposed to be a relaxing vacation.

Another issue with the home itself is that it's on quite a windy road up a steep hill. The babysitter service that we hired told us had they known where this property was, or how difficult it was to get there, they would not have accepted the job.
