Warm and cozy villa in a super convenient location!

VRBO Bear stayed here

Apr 1, 2016

“The villa was beary perfect in every way! We knew it was going to be a special place from the moment we pulled up to the iron gate and drove through the grape vines down the front driveway of the property. When I walked through the front door, the home’s interior took my breath away. Everything was perfect. It was modern, yet had a very cozy and warm feeling. We had a lot of fun playing some of the games that were available for us while sitting near the toasty electric fireplace. The home was fully stocked with everything we needed and more. There were even fun toys and a highchair for our baby bear! Not only did we have a beautifully decorated dining room to eat in, we had a second option to dine outside in the back yard, which had breathtaking views! It was nice to sit amongst the fresh herbs and flowers or by the pool looking out at the hills and trees.. The location of the property is quite convenient and close to everything. There were many walkable shops, restaurants and wineries with tastings right across the street to enjoy. Anyone who has a chance to stay at this romantic (and it was very romantic!) 5 star villa hosted by a 5 star owner would be very lucky and have a guaranteed relaxing time. Erika, thank you for such a truly wonderful stay!”

The property was beautiful and spotless. Convenient location and Erika was great.

  • 5 of 5

The house was spacious and quiet with a beautifully landscaped backyard. It was convenient to the heart of the wine country. Wonderful restaurant literally across the street with tasting rooms nearby. Erika was a perfect host who communicated everything we needed to know as well as helpful suggestions. We will definitely come back.

Great Location - 4.5 Stars

  • 4 of 5

This is a great location for visiting wineries in Sonoma and Napa Valley. The house is set back from the road. The lot is beautifully landscaped in the front and back. The backyard is made for outdoor living. The inside has been renovated and they have done an excellent job. The bedrooms are large and well appointed. Two are ensuite and one has access to the hall bath. There is also a 4th 3/4 bath in the laundry room, which is nice. We enjoyed the common areas and the outdoor amenities. There are also restaurants and tasting rooms within walking distance so you don’t have to drive everywhere. The owner also provides guests with passes to Jack London State Park ( great for hiking) and a Supervalu Membership Card ( lower prices on groceries in Santa Rosa) which are really nice. We enjoyed our stay and would stay here again.

A beautiful spot in Sonoma Valley

  • 5 of 5

The owner takes great care in ensuring a wonderful stay in the well-appointed house with lush landscaping, spa tub, pool, bocce court, fire pit, and plenty of lounging chairs. The kitchen is well-stocked, the beds are comfortable. The central location in Kenwood means you can explore the town entirely on foot. We loved our stay!

The Perfect Fall Retreat

  • 5 of 5

As you turn in the driveway, drive through the open gate and pass between rows of grape vines you know you are in for something special. Inside Villa Ticino you are greeted by a spacious living room with a comfortable seating area before the fireplace and a pool table. The dining/kitchen area is tasteful and functional - you won't want for wine glasses. Our host, Erika, treated us with a fine bottle of Kenwood wine.

Our visit was in late November so we didn't get to fully enjoy the beautiful garden and swimming pool, which is solar heated and too cold to use that time of year. The hot tub was great. Every one in our group complimented the beds. Have stayed at many VRBOs and this was one of the best. We'd certainly stay there again.

Awesome Villa!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place right in the heart of Sonoma Wine Country. You can walk to several wineries and tasting rooms and Cafe Citi which is a very cute Italian restaurant. Perfect for 3 couples, very comfortable and the outdoor area with pool, hot tub, firepit and lots of comfy chairs and loungers was awesome. Erika was super easy to work with and she even found a money gift given to my daughter for her birthday and sent it to my daughter. We will be back!

Wonderful VillaTicino

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay in Villa Ticino. It was very warm and welcoming and a perfect size for three couples. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed to prepare a meal. There were very nice bed linens and bath linens and all the essentials for a comfortable stay.

The patio area was so relaxing with a pool and wonderful table we could all sit around for dining and enjoying a very nice bottle of wine Erika had waiting for us on arrival. We loved the beautiful garden that is filled with roses, herbs, fruits and vegetables and the gorgeous view of the mountains.

It was a nice walk down the drive lined with grape vines to cross the road to a delightful lunch at VJB Cellars and another evening having dinner at Citti, an Italian restaurant, which was also located across the road. We enjoyed wine tastings at wineries that were located close to our Villa. It was in a great location.

We had a fabulous time at Villa Ticino until our stay was cut short by the devastation of the fires We were very thankful that Erika called to alert us to the fires and guided us to a safe location and stayed with us. Many thanks to Erika for her kindness and care.

We would highly recommend Villa Ticino.

We would love to return!!!
