Even though you are within an hour of a major city it feels like you are completely isolated. The wildlife and birds make for great theatre. The pool and hot tub were a wonderful oasis. The kitchen is a cooks dream with everything you need. You have an outdoor refrigerator at the pool also. The bathrooms seem to be everywhere. The casita is great for a couple who want more privacy and everything is brand new in it. The decks are wonderful in the evening and the humming birds are always buzzing the feeder for your entertainmant. I would highly recommend the property.

Amazing place for a get together of friends - we definitely want to go back
Amazing place for a get together of friends - we definitely want to go back
We spent a week at Blue Sky for my husband's birthday, along with friends. It happened to be a heatwave in California, so we were all in the swimming pool within an hour of arriving. We had to resort to the aircon to sleep at night, but if it hadn't been so extreme we would have loved the ceiling fans and open air from the many windows. The house is perfect as a place to reconnect with friends, to celebrate and relax. There are 3 en suite bedrooms in the main house, and the Casita provides another en suite room with a bit more privacy. There are also 2 additional sofa beds in the main house that could be used if needed. The kitchen is very well equipped, and is easy to move around in, even with multiple hands & bodies involved in food prep, drinks prep and clean up. There is an air hockey table which converts to a pool table, as well as many board and other games provided if you're bored (we certainly weren't). The house is wired for sound, and you can play your music throughout the house and also hear it at the pool, while you bob around on a pool lounger. We walked to the main road and back each morning for exercise, greeting the friendly donkeys and goats along the way. The swimming hole seen from the house is amazing - with a little waterfall to stand under and make you feel like you're in a shampoo commercial. There are also cute little turtles and curious fish in the swimming hole. Although there were quite a few couples staying over the week, there are enough places to escape for some quiet time alone down by the creek, or watching television, or in a wisteria covered courtyard. Staying here, you feel like you are miles away from anybody else, but there is a grocery store a short drive away when you need to stock up on essentials. If you have to connect, there is WiFi and television. Sutter Creek is near enough for a nice evening meal out, and there are wineries nearby (we recommend Sierra Ridge). We would definitely like to come back here again, in cooler times, to try out the big fireplace and the hot tub. Becky (the owner) was very responsive to all our questions and emails, and couldn't have been nicer or easier to work with. We all left with amazing memories of a wonderful place in the sun. We've not used VRBO before, but will definitely try out other places and hope they are as great as Blue Sky.

Blue Sky was magical! Truly a personal "mini resort" with everything adults and children would want for a fun, relaxing weekend away. We swam in the pool, soaked in the hot tub, and our intrepid 11-year-old swam in the creek (the younger kids were not game). We lounged on the decks and the kids played air hockey, pool, and archery. Our kids wanted to move in permanently. The home and property are very nicely appointed and maintained, as depicted on VRBO. What the VRBO photos don't show are the expansive decks and outdoor seating areas. I think we counted 6! And the creek, at least at this time of year, was bigger and even prettier than pictured. To top it off, Becky (the owner) has been so nice and helpful and easy to work with. This was my first time using VRBO and I can't imagine I'll have another experience as good as this one.

Unfortunately I didn’t get to rent this home but would have loved too. My group decided to go to a beach house instead. I just wanted to thank Becky (the owner) of this beautiful property for being so helpful. Becky is very easy to talk to and will accommodate your every need. Becky answered all questions in a timely manner via email or phone. Becky by far is one of the best property manager I’ve ever spoke with, she is very nice. And the rental rates are very resonable. Thank you again for being so helpful.
