About Pam

Small family, who love to get away to Cloverdale. The girls ask 'is it Clover day?' meaning are we going to the house this weekend.

Pam purchased this House in 2006

Why Pam chose Cloverdale

We were struck by this property for is views across Alexander Valley, and for the secluded rear nestled in an amphitheater surrounded by Oaks. Asti is between Cloverdale and Geyserville, two lovely small towns, with wine at their heart without pretensions.

What makes this House unique

If you can, go to the Cloverdale live music Friday Nights. If arriving on a Friday get here early and start your stay with music, food and art. The house and grounds offers a great retreat for families, lots of exploring to be done, and a lawn for games, a pool for fun games and swimming. There are lots of places to enjoy the peace and quiet.

                                                            suhi k.Oakland, CA

                                                            We escaped to this property to seek refuge during the record breaking heat wave. Pretty close to civilzation but feels very off the grid. We (3 families and 3 kids aged 3 - 5) loved our stay and will def. come back next year.


                                                            - Property mgmt is responsive.

                                                            - Spacious, nice kitchen, reasonablly stocked with pots, pans, dishes, cups, and some spices, etc.

                                                            - A/C, hot tub, pool, well maintained lawn

                                                            - Lots of plastic wear for outdoor eating and for children.

                                                            - Sonos speakers throughout the house

                                                            - Clean pack n play in the closet to use

                                                            Minor / helpful things to know beforehand:

                                                            - Kitchen is stocked w/ some but not others. (Had salt but no sugar; handsoap but no dish soap; coffee maker but no filter that fit the machine, etc. We left a bag of coffee filter and our dishsoap, so future guests can enjoy. The closest grocery store is about about 12 - 15 min. drive, so it wasn't too bad to make a store run).

                                                            - Not whole lot of kid friendly toys, games, or movies (we brought our own).

                                                            - Strict warning about not using the A/C all day -- I didn't know A/C could freeze up if you use it all day long. We followed the instructions and turned it off at night.

                                                            - Play structure is functional but it's a bit worn down. It's fine and kids loved to swing but it's a big rickety.

                                                            - Limited internet usage. There's strict warning about overusage charge. Everyone just used their phones and we brought a bunch of movies to watch. The house has PS3 to play DVDs.

                                                            - Outdooar patio string lights no longer work. We couldn't figure out how to use speakers on the patio.

                                                            - Fridge is nice and big but it takes forever to make ice. We ended up buying a bag of ice from the store, because we ran out of ice on Day 3.

                                                            - Pool is great but the shallow end is pretty limited. Watch your kids.

                                                            - Master bedroom could use a king size bed instead of queen.

                                                            - Pillow are a bit worn out but beddings were overall decent. Not 5 star Ritz Carlton quality but not 1 star motel 6 either. It was fine and clean.

                                                            Beautiful Property

                                                            The views were beautiful and the pool was amazing. My only problem with the house was the lack of a basic stocked kitchen. No proper cooking oils, salt and pepper, foil or anything... so be well prepared and packed for that! But overall we loved our stay there.

                                                            Owner's Response:

                                                            My boyfriend and I had a quiet weekend away with several of our friends and were awestruck when we pulled up to the house. The view of the lush green canyon from the front patio was gorgeous. Inside - a spacious, comfy home with a great Sonos speakers for your music/mood. The kitchen was super well-stocked for cooking and entertaining. If you want this home for a summer getaway BOOK NOW or hold your peace! :)

                                                            We stayed here with our extended family (my wife and two children, parents and sister and her husband) over Thanksgiving. It was the perfect setup and we were all very comfortable. The kitchen is HUGE and great for cooking. Outdoors was great too and the kids really enjoyed running around even though it was too chilly for the swimming pool. Pretty convenient to the Cloverdale downtown and not too far from Healdsburg as well. All in all, a great get-a-way for us and one we'll definitely consider again!
