About Marc Kaye

A PERSONAL NOTE

From Alexander Farr

My wife Mara and I rented the villa for a special family gathering for our first visit. During our stay we fell in love with the property. We reconnected with what is most important in life. Villa Mara is not just the ultimate wine country compound, it's a place of peace, privacy and luxury surrounded by natural beauty. Villa Mara is the ideal place for you to create unforgettable memories.

Why Marc Kaye chose Napa County

Villa Mara has had no expense spared during construction. From the 1 foot thick walls, to the massive 12,500 square foot residence, to the finish work throughout the estate, you will be surrounded by PURE LUXURY. While enjoying the hand-crafted home, you are surrounded by unparalleled natural beauty and immersed within thousands of acres of vineyards.

Surprise Engagement trip actually date was 2010

  • 5 of 5

Its been long overdue for this review and to the the Awesome owners I apologize. My surprise trip to my now Fiance was back in 2010 and what a trip it was. I wanted to go big or not go at all as they say. I tracked down this magnificent Estate and with all the help from the owners planned a masterful Engagement for the love of my life. Though they normally tend to large groups and longer stays they made an exception and allowed my party of seven to fill in on short notice. We felt like Kings and Queens. Every aspect of the Estate is pure delight. The kitchen was fabulous for all of our stay in meals. The movie room perfect before a nightcap and show after any long day at the wineries. The rooms first class and though I only stayed in the Master bedroom which was unbelievable my other guest's morning happiness showed their pleasures. The Master bathroom there is absolutely no words for and I miss it every day since. At times in the house you forget you have guest with you as it is so spread out from end to end. I proposed on the 3rd day 6am out back with the fog rolling down the mountainside. Stunning and Breathtaking all in one. I have been fighting to return and just get married at the house buy my Fiance's life dream is to get Married on the Ocean. You will never go wrong figuring out how to make it happen staying at this Estate. Top notch owners as well as venue. Make it happen and you will not be disappointed.

To the amazing owners we will be back and we hope that you will allow us to stay at your gorgeous Estate again. We will never forget our engagement thanks to you. So sorry for the well deserved but delayed review.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our anniversary with friends in Napa and stayed at this wonderful estate. It was as lovely as the pictures suggested. We particularly enjoyed morning coffees on the deck enjoying the beautiful surroundings and afternoon sunbaths on the pool deck that felt like you were at a high end resort. I wish we could petition Napa county to be a bit more lax with their noise regulations at night but if keeping quiet is the biggest problem with a rental property then I am delighted...

The owner thoughtfully showed us around on arrival and we have had excellent service dealing with everyone related to the property. This property comes highly recommended!

Dream Home

  • 5 of 5

Our recent stay at Tenstone was nothing less than amazing. The pictures do not do the property justice. We had eight guests and there was plenty of room for more. The home was exceptionally clean. Owners were local and gave a review of home features such as the theater, pool, spa, lighting and a/v. If you want to have a getaway with friends in wine country, this is the place to go. You will not be dissapointed.
