My husband Glenn, dog Zoe and I spent a wonderful, relaxing 5days at the Casita. We enjoyed visiting nearby lakes to let Zoe swim - as well as wading in Murphys Creek, wandering through the town, wine tasting, beer tasting for Glenn at Alchemys, and sitting out at night watching the multitude of stars - even saw 6 shooting stars in one night. The casita was very comfortable. The outdoor space was wonderful and well equipped. After a full day we would bring home dinner (used BBQ also), open a bottle of wine, turn on some music and enjoy a quiet evening. The location is perfect - close enough to town for convenience but far enough out for relaxation. Barbara, Chris, Titan and Bandito were perfect hosts. Available for recommendations and information but unobtrusive and respectful of our privacy. Titan and Bandito were a pleasure to be around and didn't mind Zoe visiting their home! I had been to this area years ago and have been waiting to share it with Glenn. We were very happy with our time at Murphys and can't imagine a better place for our home base!

Owner response: What active people, even after winding up a 2 week road trip! So glad you thoroughly explored our County and all the fun things to do and see. And glad you stayed here at the Casita. Titan and Bandito say "hi - bark" to Zoe!
Amazing Bachelorette Party Weekend
Amazing Bachelorette Party Weekend
I have always wanted to stay in Murphy's...and I got my wish...and I think my fair godmother was watching out for me because our stay at Estate and Casita was so spectacular!!!! Outstanding views and property!!! We loved the kitchen (full kitchen with everything...utensils, plates, glasses, spices...you name it and it is there). Everything was very organized with easy instructions and notes...hot tub & out door BBQ. Loved the feeding the chickens and coy fish. Our dogs were also able to come...and loved loved their stay also. I felt so at peace and happy here...I can't wait to come back!! Everyone who came felt the very at home...all the way down to comfy beds and luxy bathrooms!!! I will never ever forget my stay!!! I miss everytime I think about it. You can tell this place was built with love...any may be my fairy godmother. ;)

Amazing home for a great weekend in Murphys
Amazing home for a great weekend in Murphys
This home was more than we ever expected. What an awesome place to have a girl's weekend! The home itself is beautiful, huge, and very clean... Not to mention fresh eggs from chickens in the morning, a hot tub, outdoor grill, and a great outdoor space. We could have easily not left the house for the entire weekend, and just relaxed in the garden or on the patio reading and drinking wine, enjoying the tub, or exploring the grounds. I do not hesitate to recommend this VRBO, and home to return soon. Thanks!

Owner response: A group of ladies had a wonderful time that weekend. Shopping in Murphys, wine tasting, and relaxing on the deck was a much as their agenda could take! Thanks for your stay, and hope to see you soon.
An impromptu weekend escape to the Casita. The owners were wonderfully accomodating to us and our small family. The Casita is warm, comfortable, quiet and private. The full property is amazing and in the morning we explored the creek, the pond, and the indian grinding rocks. My little girls even collected fresh eggs from the chicken coop with the owner! Thank you for the hospitality. And sorry for belated review. We'll be back soon!

Owner response: Ah, the wee blondies were so darling! It was fun showing them all that our property has to offer. Even bull frogs! Come back anytime, good family.
My husband and I stayed in the casita for our anniversary and loved it! The owners are very welcoming and professional. This was so much better than staying in a hotel! Everything was very clean and we even had a newspaper left at our door. There were people renting out the house at the same time and we couldn't even tell they were there. Highly recommend this place!

Owner response: And you had a wonderful time at the concert at Ironstone too! Even with 6 women in our main house for a "girls weekend", we are glad that you enjoyed your stay and your anniversary weekend celebration! Thank you and come back another time. You'll always be welcome!
This house was perfect for our getaway! We rented both the house and the casita for the six of us and had the best time ever! Upon arrival we found an amazing house with treats on the counter waiting for us. Each morning after we let the chickens out and gathered eggs, we sat outside on the beautiful balcony overlooking the vineyard and pond drinking coffee and chatting about the days events. In the evenings we cooked devine dinners in the fabulous kitchen! During one of the afternoons we packed a picnic and after shopping in downtown Murphys we went to the winery just a quarter mile away from the house and had a wonderful time sharing wine while eating lunch out by the lake. This place is such a treat for anyone! And the Wildevines soaps and canned goods just added the perfect touch to our perfect weekend! It's crazy how you truely feel like it's home away from home. We will all look forward to coming back again next year and doing it all over again! Thanks for making our girlfriend getaway something we'll never forget!

Owner response: What fun this ladies group had in Murphys and at our home. They called to invite me to join them, which would have been a blast! They truly utilized the Estate, with cooking, good conversations, hot tubing, sun bathing, and massages in the Casita. We're so glad everything was perfect, including the weather!
Wonderful weekend retreat!
Wonderful weekend retreat!
My wife and I spent one night in the 'Casita', which was just perfect for what we were looking for: a peaceful, serene spot to get away and relax. We brought our dog with us, and he loved romping around in the yard with the owner's three dogs! The property itself is even more lovely than it looks in the photos, and the house and casita are beautiful. The area around the property is also beautiful, with a lovely winery and tasting room within a short walk, and a number of quiet roads to walk on without having to worry about traffic. The owners are very friendly and accomodating - we felt like we were staying at a friend's house, rather than renting a room for the night. Thank you!!!

Owner response: Thank you so much for your stay! Uno was quite the big dog in little stature. He loved chasing the ball and quickly outrun mine by yards! The 3 of you are welcome back anytime!
Fabulous EstateGuest comment entered by owner
This gorgeous estate home is one of the top places my husband and I and our friends have ever stayed. It could very well grace the cover of Sunset Magazine. The home has every amenity. We took advantage of the big barbecue and covered deck out back for dinner. Everything is very clean and spotless. We also liked how close the home is to Murphys and all the wineries we wanted to visit. There is also a Casita where a third couple could stay, or 1 couple for a weekend away. Perfect weekend!

Wow...what a get-away we had!!! My fiancee, our Golden Retriever and I arrived on 12/23 and sadly left the Estate Home on 12/31 (we loved it so much, it was hard to leave!) . We all agreed it was the best vacation we've ever had and by far exceeded our expectations. Chris and Barbara, as well as all the furry critters, greeted us warmly and the hospitality we received was excellent. This was my first experience renting someones actual home and was afraid I might be a little uncomfortable doing so: Happily I was wrong and we all felt so at home here ~ it was truly the rest and relaxation we so needed. We will come back again (we come to Murphy's twice a year), next time staying in the Casita. I would highly recommend staying at the Estate Home and/or the Casita...both are tastefully decorated and so very comfy. We loved the close proximity of Murphy's when we wanted to get to town, but appreciated the ability to have the privacy that we wouldn't have found had we stayed elsewhere. We knew we wanted to get married somewhere in Murphy's but had yet to choose the venue ~ this place is PERFECT for it and will most definitely plan to do it here. Thank you Chris and Barbara for such a memorable vacation. We will see you soon! Give Max some pets for us. :) Ann, Lee and Roxy

Owner response: Oh My Gosh. We are so very pleased that you were both able to relax from your stressful jobs in LA; enjoy the town; sit on the deck overlooking the vineyard; do some creative cooking; and most importantly, feel like you were at "home" for your holiday. Thank you for your stay and for your kind words. See you again this summer! Oh, and thanks to Roxy for being such a good girl!
A wonderful retreat spot for family and/or friends! Beautifully appointed, well stocked , gorgeous decor! You can't ask for more!
