Amazingly decadent private estate

  • 5 of 5

Five couples shared an amazing 3 nights in wine country heaven. When we had to select our rooms, it was hard to decide which one was the top choice. All are wonderful. Each bedroom having its own bath was really nice. The house has lots of spaces for people to enjoy and we used every inch of it - the fire pit, hot tub, pool, poker table, pool table, patio, kitchen, den, steam room, sauna...The kitchen has everything you could ever need. Melanie was great. She was wonderful prior to our arrival with connecting us to tour drivers, a private chef and take out dinner locations. We arrived after dark and we would not have found the turn off to the estate without her coming to find us. It is remote. It takes a good 20 minutes to get anywhere, but for us it was perfect. We toured wine country all day and were very happy to head back "home" to the night. The views are fantastic. We enjoyed watching the fog roll in each morning and the sunsets were great. We would absolutely stay there again. Highly recommended. The pictures truly represent what the place is like but still don't do it justice!

Thanks so much for making our weekend perfect!

5 STARS - Not Enough

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do justice to this location and the amenities of this property are quite better than described. Far beyond what you might expect in every category. There is a reason that every review is 5 star. If you want something secluded and yet within a few minutes of town and/or wine country, this is a truly great place to stay.

The best of the best! An excellent base for exploring Wine Country or a relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

Excellent + property and experience. Great size for large groups. Plenty of room to spread out indoors and out. Great location. You feel away from it all when there but can quickly get to the things you need and the places you want to go in Sonoma or Napa. Melanie, the manager or should I say concierge, is a great resource. She connected us to an on-site chef, an on-site yoga instructor, gathered items we had shipped in, brought (without us asking) extra items we used for the Thanksgiving feast, was super responsive to fixing the one hiccup, and quickly processed the deposit refund. Very clean and well maintained property . The kitchen is big, functional and well stocked with appliances, pots/pans and dishes. Great amenities, too. The steam room was tagged as "life changing" and the large TVs were great for movie night and Game Day. But the really, really great and best part of the property is the way you can interact with the outdoors. The view is fantastic regardless of weather with amazing sunsets. And the hot tub, pool, fire pit, swings and dining table let you relax and soak it all in. WCE is a truly excellent experience. We're already planning for our next visit.

Gorgeous views in the Mountains

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 9 adults in town from Boston, Scottsdale and Chicago to celebrate my mom’s 60th birthday in wine country. Every single person was overly impressed with the cleanliness, organization, amenitites, and most of all the views. Melanie was so sweet and easy to work with, she set us up with a perfect weekend for everyone. Words cannot express our gratitude and appreciation for our stay. From dancing in the huge kitchen to the amazing sound system, to eating a family dinner in the spacious kitchen, to hanging in the sauna and the hot tub, we really didn’t even need to leave the house. We hope to come back soon!!

Our time here was surreal!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this property with several of my friends for my 50th birthday celebration. There was a bottle of champagne waiting for us in the refrigerator to get the adventure started! Thank you Melanie!

We loved this place! Secluded, gated property. The view is breathtaking! The sunsets spectacular! Deer frolicking thru the fields. The bedrooms are fantastic, each with it's own bathroom, the beds so comfortable. We took advantage of the sauna, steam room, pool and hot tub, all of them in excellent condition and added a whole extra level to our experience. We had a chef, Maria Veigas, who prepared a beautiful birthday dinner and did an exceptional job! Highly recommend her. The kitchen has everything we needed to prepare our other meals. There is a large wooden table outside of the kitchen, where we ate most of our meals admiring the view. Pool table and blackjack table for evening fun, as well as a piano. You do not need to leave this place except for groceries.

Melanie, the property manager, was wonderful to work with, responded back quickly to any questions we had. Our time went too quickly there, miss it already. I will treasure these memories. We all hope to return.

Beautifully appointed home! Perfect setting for our college reunion. The home is a wonderful blend of private and group gathering spaces - both inside and outside. Melanie was an attentive and helpful host. We look forward to staying here again. We highly recommend it!

Take a Tour of the McCoy Vineyard (our fabulous neighbor Chuck McCoy), and enjoy a private wine tasting of his label, Volante, at the Villa.

A beautiful place to walk and explore the country.
