Tranquility and stars await, we'd love to share this beautiful area with you.

What makes this guest house unique

NOTE: To help support the initiatives, travelers and bookings throughout 2016, starting in February VRBO will begin introducing a small service fee paid by a traveler who books or pays through the VRBO checkout. Traveler service fees are commonplace in the travel industry, and based on research, VRBO does not anticipate that a service fee will be a meaningful deterrent to travelers wanting to book your property.

Beautiful! Amazing views! Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My parents and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Jayda Hill! The cottage is beautifully decorated and has everything you could want for a getaway in wine country! The deck is a wonderful place to relax, visit, and enjoy a glass of wine. The views of the vineyard and the mountains are breathtaking! All of the little touches, such as the fresh flowers, the fruit basket, and breakfast for your first morning are much appreciated after a long day of traveling! Yvonne and Jax are so welcoming and so thoughtful and definitely helped make this birthday a memorable one! I hope to return to the area in the future and would definitely want to stay at Jayda Hill again!

Wonderful Place in Wine Country !

  • 5 of 5

We were greeted by Mariah, Yvonne's granddaughter. She had prepared a basket of fruits for our arrival along with some crackers and cheese and muffins and coffee for the next morning. Mariah gave us some very helpful information about the surrounding area, places to eat, etc. The cottage is very cute and very comfortable surrounded by beautiful flower gardens and of course the vineyard behind the cottage. We enjoyed sitting out on the patio watching the sunset and drinking coffee and eating dessert that we had purchased from one of the local wineries. We would definitely stay here again if we make it back to the California Wine Country.

Thank you for a wonderful stay !

Beautiful place, very nice hosts

  • 5 of 5

The house is very nicely maintained with personal touches everywhere. We were really pleasantly surprised to open the fridge and find that the owners had thoughtfully placed a plate of cheese and fresh fruit, yogurt and fresh juice for the next day's breakfast in the fridge.

There is a vineyard in the back and a beautiful patio. Our two young boys spent lots of time in the vineyard and garden while we relaxed in the house.

The hosts are really nice people, and very friendly and accommodating as well. They left us a really nice welcoming note, which I found to be very nice. We've stayed at many VRBO places and this one was one of the warmest, well maintained and beautiful. We went to Russian river and had a great time. Close to all of those activities.

If you are looking for a nice getaway with Russian river, this is a great place to stay!

Beautiful home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The little home in Forestville is more than the typical vacation rental. The owners have taken special care to make Jada Hill comfortable for anyone. The moment we walked inside we could tell the attention to details: spotless interior, kitchen equipped better than many homeowners - beautiful pottery, numerous utensils, serving dishes, linens, and updated quality appliances. The bed and linens were top quality so after a day out it was easy to fall asleep. The furniture in living room was comfortable and the dining room had a lovely table set with matching bar stools for kitchen island. The bath was supplied with everything needed for a traveling couple. The outdoor deck was in excellent condition and was two levels giving occupants comfort in many outdoor seating arrangements. Perhaps the most appealing for us was the gorgeous attention to landscaping in the yard, entrance, deck, and surrounding area. It truly was one of the best rentals we have ever experienced. Thanks to the hosts for giving us "starter food" for that first morning and to all the attention to details throughout Jada Hill.

A wonderful, quiet cottage in the wine country

  • 5 of 5

We spent a very nice long weekend in the wine country at this cottage in Forestville. My wife and I are both from the Bay Area but we had never been to this part of the wine country. It was a great location. It is quiet and the drive to Forestville is very pretty but we were only 20 minutes from Sebastapol, 25 minutes from Armstrong Redwoods and 25 minutes from Healdsburg. Both Forestville and nearby Graton have great restaurants.

Yvonne and Jax were wonderful hosts. There was fresh fruit, muffins, etc. waiting for us in the fridge. They both said hello and were very helpful but gave us our privacy throughout the weekend.

The cottage is charming, spotless and very quiet and the back deck with its view of the hills is what you dream about when you get out of San Francisco to enjoy the summer weather. We will definitely be back.

Incredibly Lovely Home Away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

My Mom and I stayed at the Jayda Hill cottage in early June and had such a wonderful experience! The house is in such a beautiful, quiet location with a gorgeous deck, gardens, and vineyards right out back. Inside was incredibly comfortable with a well appointed and beautifully styled kitchen and living area. The bedrooms are lovely too -- really comfortable beds. But the best part is the warm welcome and thoughtful touches provided by our hosts, Yvonne and Jax. They provided delicious snack/breakfast food on the first day, and Yvonne was very helpful with tips about exploring wine country. Definitely a wonderful experience in every way. Thank you Yvonne and Jax!
