We enjoyed our stay, there were a couple glitches. The house and the grounds were beautiful. Vlada was very friendly and welcoming.
The cable didn’t work, it was fixed on the 2nd day of our stay. That was a drag as the men were looking forward to their sports. The house has a few step downs that were pretty invisible, luckily Vlada pointed them out for us, however she forgot to mention the step in the laundry room and my sister in law fell on it. That could of been a real disaster, luckily she was just a little bruised. The house lacked the basics like paper towels, Saran Wrap, ziplock bags, Tupperware, soap in the showers. The house says it sleeps 12, so I assumed there were a couple pull out couches, there weren’t, you could just lay on the couch and sleep that way. So it basically slept 10.
It was a good learning lesson for me to be aware of the things to look for and ask if there are supplied, when I’ve stayed at hotels or suites or other homes they will leave you a few items in the kitchen that are the basics, I was disappointed that for the price we paid for this home that those basic necessities weren’t there.
Thank you for taking time to leave your review. Your comments were very helpful.
I wish to extend my sincere apology once again about the cable television service interruption. Repairman explained interruption was caused by wind. I am thankful DISH was able to send a tech early next day. Sorry to hear about your sister in law. Hope she is doing well... I usually don't mention step in laundry room since it's a regular step down ( unlike those on hallways). Thank you for pointing this out, I will make sure to do so with our future guests.
After running VRBO for over 5 years we learned that most of our guests like to bring their own soaps so we now provide only hand soap. To be more environmentally friendly we replaced paper towels with cloth towels. Kitchen is equipped with basic cooking dishes however we don't provide Tupperware, aluminum foil, Saran Wrap and Ziploc bags.
Regarding our sleeping arrangement, Villa offers 5 bedrooms where we can accommodate 10 guests. Additional 2 guests are welcome to stay for free and use couches, extra linens are available.
Thank you again so much for choosing to stay with us. I so enjoyed meeting you and your family.
The property is truly amazing. We felt like we were in a Tuscany villa in Italy. The place was very spacious and clean. Vlada welcomed us with some krganic grapes and chocolate. It was sweet of her to do that.
Thank you for staying with us and for being such a wonderful guests.
I would so welcome opportunity to host you again in future. :)

Girlfriends Wine- tasting Getaway
We spent 3 days at this lovely home and had an amazing time. We would go wine tasting in the day and come back in the late afternoon to enjoy wine and appetizers on the property overlooking the vineyards and the beautiful scenery and sunsets. Enjoyed coffee in the morning on the balcony watching the hot air ballons go by and then hiked in the vineyards afterwards. Vlada was a very gracious and accomodating host and we enjoyed the fact that she was willing to join us one evening and share her stories. We would definitely come back, we were made to feel like this was our second home.
What a pleasure it was to meet you and your friends. Villa host many guest but only some leave such found memories with us as you and your group did.
I very much look forward to opportunity to see you all again in near future.
Gorgeous views and amazing house
Vlada was a gracious amazing host. We rented the house for a gathering place for our wedding prep. Vlada was sweet and helpful and offered her assistance to us. The house is massive and impressive. The views are spectacular! Thank you Vlada for the warm welcome and stay. We really enjoyed ourselves and it was a perfect place to stay and get ready for our wedding!
Great Getaway Spot
We only stayed for 2 nights for a girls getaway, but enjoyed hanging out in this spacious home. It is clean and pretty well maintained. Some of the furniture is a little tired, but comfortable. The view is amazing, with a beautiful outdoor space to hang out.
The property manager is very hospitable and made us feel very welcome. We will consider this home for our next visit.
Thank you again for being such a wonderful guests and for your helpful feedback.
I agree with you, we could use new couches and are planning to replace current soon....:)
