Multiple outdoor seating and dining options give it a resort-like feel along with the outdoor BBQ and fire pit.

Paresa Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a family vacation. It was absolutely perfect. Gorgeous setting, spacious, perfect for morning and afternoon lounging at the pool and evening meals. Owner was extremely responsive, and helpful. It was obvious how much she loves her home and enjoys sharing it with others. A true gem!

Outstanding vacation house

  • 5 of 5

Paresa was perfectly located--close to great wineries, close to Sonoma, easy to get to Napa--but very private and a beautiful oasis. The house is clean and beautifully outfitted. We had a lovely time laying by the pool and unwinding between trips to wineries. The interior is immaculate with beautiful and comfortable furnishings. We cooked in the kitchen a number of times and it had all the supplies we needed.

Kelly was outstanding to work with, she provided excellent recommendations for our stay and clear directions to the property. She quickly responded to any question or request. I would absolutely stay at this property again!

Paresa is an awesome property with great amenities, including an amazing, private outdoor space.

  • 5 of 5

First of all, Kelly was really great to work with and extremely responsive. Her property, Paresa, is very secluded, but yet very close to many great wineries and a perfect launching point for Sonoma or Napa. The house was immaculately clean and the expansive layout is perfect for three couples. Our group really enjoyed using the updated kitchen and each night we spent time unwinding by the pool and connected hottub. The private outdoor space surrounded by vineyards and great views really makes the property. We look forward to reaching out to Kelly again next year and enjoying all that Paresa has to offer. The ping pong table was an added bonus as well.

Paresa was wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Paresa was everything we had hoped for and more. The house was great and had all the amenities we needed for a long weekend with a group of 8 adults. Plenty of space for everyone. It was so nice to stay in a rental home that was well taken care of and not just full of others second hand furniture. The outdoor area was great - especially the pool and hot tub. Kelly was so easy to work with and responded immediately to any questions we had. We will definitely be back next year! Missing our fabulous stay in Sonoma already.

Amazing Sonoma Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing time at Villa Paresa! The home was immaculate, and just what we were looking for with our girls group. There was more than enough space and sleeping for 9. Everything is updated and gorgeous. The outdoor area, especially the beautiful pool right next to the rolling vineyards, was perfect. Kelly was super friendly and helpful, and returned my deposit very quickly. If you are looking for a great VRBO experience, and a beautiful home in wine country, you've found it!!

Spectacular house with breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about this house. It had everything we could possibly need and so much more. The kitchen is fully equipped and nicely remodeled as well as the rest of the house. We were a family of 7 and enjoyed the spaciousness of the bedrooms, closets, bathrooms. Kelly gave us great recommendations on restaurants and wineries to visit. Overall a wonderful experience at Paresa. Would love to go back. Thanks for a great 4 days Kelly!!
