A time to remember
5 families gathered from Seattle, Bay Area and Tokyo, Japan for my son's CIA graduation.
30 min to commute the steep winding unfamiliar road to/from Napa Valley to Pope valley was one of challenge however the size of the house was needed for us and found it as perfect place.
Roy the host was nice to provide us all information needed and great in communication via phone, txt and emails. He speaks several languages as well. (He said he even trying Japanese :P)
- you'll be in middle of nowhere - this place is totally different from the busy Napa valley.
- Beautiful three bedrooms with king sized beds and beautiful views of vineyards and mountains.
- Breakfast nook and big living room where we spent most of our time.
- Has formal dining room for 8 people (didn't use this time).
- Cozy family room became nice sleeping area for the 5th family (we've expected this and brought some bedding staffs for the nights).
- Whole house was warm with perfect heating settings (we've visited in middle of April).
- Outside BBQ area is a place to gather to spend in warm evening grilling our favorites and sip drinks. (could stay until around 9pm, then air temp dropped significantly which we've came in)
- Views views views! and sooo quiet throughout the day.
- Complete kitchen with high-end appliances worked perfectly.
- Internet worked perfectly while it is a bit slow - which is understandable.
Cons, no serious issues at all:
- the 4th bedroom with a queen bed is not actually for a guest at this point (Apr 2018) - BIG gap from the other bedrooms. So you may want to consider there's only three bedrooms.
- drainage of guest shower was a bit slow.
Note as it is stated by owner this is not a smaller kids friendly place since there's several things that you may not want them to touch and break. You may end up chasing them around and exhausted :)
The gate to the house does not have house number. You may find a red corn.
Thank you Roy for your kind hospitality while I could not meet you at this time.
Together with the wonderful spring weather, we truly enjoyed our stay.
beautiful house in a stunning location
great outdoor kitchen with a cozy fire pit. amazing views of the valley. a perfect getaway and the house was ideal for entertaining.
I am happy that you enjoyed the villa and it met your needs. I think the outdoor living areas are one of the best features and most enjoyable for people to enjoy each other's company.
Please come and see us again!
Excellent Stay in the Wine Country
The house was fabulous--better than described. We find the owners easy and communicative--but they did not overdo it. We grilled steaks on the barbie and sat outside with a wonderful fire at the end of our days. Probably one of the best holidays we have had and it is primarily because the Villa was so nice!
Thank you for such a lovely review. I am so glad you enjoyed the villa and your stay here. We are hoping to see you next time you come to St Helena! You were such considerate guests leaving the home in such a great condition!
We very much enjoyed our stays at Villa Monticello and Villa Roma! fantastic inside and outside.
Thank you, Bruce!
We were glad to be able to host your Cisco guests and that they found the accommodations enjoyable for your event.
Wonderful stay at Villa Monticello and Villa Roma
My whole family, 11 of us, spent the weekend at both the luxurious Villa Monticello and lovely Villa Roma. We were all in awe of our majestic surroundings. The former Villa has absolutely everything available that one could desire and accommodates a large gathering beautifully. It is very secluded and quite a bit of a way from St. Helena, so you should take all of the needed food and supplies with you but it is well worth the trip. Once there, you won't want to leave and the beds were fantastic, I might add. The host/owner is most helpful and so gracious. I highly recommend these Villa's, as they were like a dream to us!
Thank you for your gracious review Sharon. You were a pleasure to work with and I am so happy you and your family enjoyed your stay.
Not what we expected!
Let me start by saying that if you want to be near Napa Valley, this is NOT the place to stay. It takes about 20-25 minutes to get back to St. Helena and the drive is up one side of Howell Mountain and down the other into the next valley. It is a pretty hairy drive especially at night. We even had trouble finding a driver willing to come get us. The house is nice. There is one big master bedroom and two much smaller ones that share a small bathroom. We had some water issues and actually had no water the day we left. This is the first time I have been disappointed renting thru VRBO.
We are very sorry for the guest's inconvenience for not having water on the last day of their stay.
However the maid came at 11:00 am the same day after the guests left and there was no problem with the water issue. So we are perplexed about that as we have never had that problem before. Even before receiving this review I called the guest to apologize for this problem and to offer a one night's stay at our downtown St Helena accommodation. Villa Monticello is secluded like our ad says. I always state when renting Villa Monticello that it is 15 miles from downtown St Helena and is wonderful if you are looking for seclusion. There are many comments from other guests that enjoy the seclusion that 27 acres offers. Our guests often hire a driver or call Uber and have not had problems doing so in the past. Again, we would like to apologize for his inconvenience and our offer to compensate with a night in St Helena lodging is still available.
The beautiful Napa Valley Wine Country has a variety of attractions including wine tasting at famous wineries, dining at fine restaurants, hot air balloon rides, wine train excursions, and mud baths / spa treatments.
