About the property

1 bedroom casita overlooking Lake Melones

Children/pets prohibited.

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.

What a Special Place!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed all over the world and used VRBO often. This place ranks up in the top 3 for sure! The spectacular views immediately melt away any stress or anxiety you may have. It is secluded, private, comfortable with anything you may need. We didn't need a thing but Ghee and her son made it clear they were available to us at any time. Bed was comfy, all creature comforts in the country. Will be back! Ghee - thanks for sharing your little slice of heaven with us!

Just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for our 20th anniversary and could not have been more pleased. The views were breathtaking and the quiet was just what we needed to get away from our hectic day to day. We can’t wait to have the opportunity to return.

Port Elliot, South Australia. Australia

In a word... PERFECT! Even photoshopped pictures fall short. We loved the casita. Ole!

  • 5 of 5

As another reviewer stated, our expectations were exceeded! We are experienced travellers, but the Vallecitos casita scores a perfect 10. The casita is beautifully appointed and every detail provided. Gourmet kitchen including some very nice spices and oils, warm Mexican blankets for the patio, a really fun puzzle, luxury linens, great sound system. And the view!!! I want to live here!

Ghee and Alan are wonderful hosts. We parted friends and I really hope they will visit us in Australia. Their wines are SUPERB!

A suggestion: Stop by Trader Joes and bring some fun food along as there are no convenient markets. Murphys and Angels Camp have some great restaurants, but we loved whipping up happy hour and meals in the casita. It was a self contained paradise!

The Gold Country makes for a wonderful holiday. We plan to return and will definitely stay at the Villa Vallecitos casita.

Everything Promised and More

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed in many VRBO over the years. The Casita at VVV is truly special. The privacy and views are unsurpassed. The owner, Ghee, has refined taste. The construction, the orientation, the color choices, fixtures, furniture, and atmosphere are beautifully integrated. The short drive down a private and well maintained road, adds to the allure. Bogart, the property mascot, is a quiet and very friendly dog. Ghee was very kind and responsive. We will be back!
