Property description

Welcome to the estate we lovingly call, 'Compound Joy'!

The tree-lined, dappled sunlit approach to our property on Mt. Twin Sisters feels like you are entering a mystical and magical land. As soon as you set foot on the property, your whole family or group will smile, feeling right at home in casual comfort and elegance.

With 5 bedrooms and 3.5 baths, you have your choice from king-size bed with adjoining bathroom privacy to 6 bunk beds for the kids or others in your entourage. Perfect for a family retreat, your own version of 'The Big Chill' type of reunion, or group spiritual journey.

In fact, the house decor is intended to evoke peacefulness, energetic renewal and conscious expansion. A Native American ceremonial drum and other percussion instruments are available for your soul awakening, group bonding and delicious JOY!

We're on 20 acres, so expect all the quiet and privacy you can fathom... and enjoy the panoramic views of Suisun Valley.

We're 20 minutes drive from downtown Napa, only an hour from both San Francisco and Sacramento. Local wineries are within a 5 minute drive. The local Jelly Belly factory is a few miles away and great fun for kids of all ages! From June through December, nearby Larry's Produce is a throwback to a simpler time of getting fresh, locally grown food at prices that will make you smile. Trader Joe's and Safeway are about 10 minutes away. The highly rated, Mankas Tapas & Steakhouse, is also only a mile away.

The solar heated pool is sheer delight (in season). Given our unique micro-climate on Mt. Twin Sisters in bucolic Suisun Valley (rarely found in the Bay Area), you may enjoy a warm summer evening stroll or dip in the pool or soak in the hot tub under the stars. Large kitchen area (with brand new refrigerator and dishwasher) connecting to indoor dining room makes meal preparation a fun social event. Or grill outside and have your meal outside on the deck or poolside.

We have wi-fi internet access, 60 inch TV, DVD player, iPod ready speakers, ping pong, tennis court, basketball hoop, outdoor gas grill and kitchen, pond/fountain water feature and 10kw solar panels to make Compound Joy your very own playground as well as sanctuary. And if you appreciate wildlife, we have regular visitors including deer, wild turkeys, hawks (and doves!), hummingbirds, rabbits and lizards. Feel free to hike our 20 acres or walk up the road for breathtaking views.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2002

About: A reformed and retired money manager in the stock market, I am focused on the kind of wealth that money can't buy. I have co-authored a book, 'Inner Security & Infinite Wealth: Merging Self Worth and Net Worth,' hosted a Sirius satellite radio show for three years, 'Inside Wealth', and created a short form business video series, 'Inner Espresso.' I am now co-hosting a TV talk show in Santa Barbara called 'Get Conscious Now.' I grew up in Long Island (New York), went to college at Cornell U. and received an MBA in Finance from Northeastern U. I have a total of 5 children, with my 16 year old son living with me full time in a guest house on the property.

Why Fairfield, CA, USA:
I moved from the 'high rent district' of Tiburon, CA with Golden Gate Bridge views because the land called me. The peace and quiet, the nature and wildlife, the valley views, the full moon nights that are so bright that the trees cast shadows... it all called me away from the 'rat race.' As Lily Tomlin said, 'The problem with the rat race is, that even if you win, you're still a rat!' (big smile!) I have hosted many beautiful, heart-opening non-denominational, community gatherings and ceremonies inside the house and outside on the grounds. Many of our guests can viscerally feel the warm, inviting energies upon entering the property as if they were present in those past events.

The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
I love the Mediterranean architecture, the tiled roof and breezeway leading to the front door. The property has so many activity and quiet zones - from tennis court to hot tub, from the courtyard with water fountain flowing to bench with views of Mt. Diablo - its versatility accommodates any mood and recreational interest for me. And the house and property is so spacious that it's the perfect venue for larger gatherings, retreats and reunions. I've had so many parties here.. and have hosted so many guests here who have had amazing experiences here... this place truly is magical!
