The owner, who does everything and does it very well, is always present to welcome the guests, plan the meals, and even serve a glass of wine for a late arriving guest. The location is remote, but that is a plus, as there are few opportunities for distractions. The grounds are beautiful, the food is outstanding and the rooms are... More

This is a beautiful inn with the feel of a European country estate. The grounds are really beautiful and well-kept with nice touches and spots to sit and enjoy; very peaceful. Our room was very clean and comfortable. A couple of small things could have been updated ~ the faucet on the spa tub needed a small fix; and baseboards... More

We had a great time and had a fun conversation with the owner/manager during wine tasting. The room was comfortable and had all that we would need or want. The breakfast was great and the setting was peaceful and beautiful. There were some minor things that we felt could have been an improvement and we mentioned them in writing when... More

The owner wears many hats which is very commendable, but he needs to work on his people skills. He was EXTREMELY RUDE to us when we checked it and at the wine tasting he insulted my friends intelligence (literally). I spoke with many other guests and they had the same experience. The grounds are beautiful, but we will never return... More

We apologize your overall experience wasn’t up to par. We feel there may have been some confusion regarding a simple misunderstanding due to language barriers, and we are very sorry if anything that was said came off as rude. We are very happy to hear you enjoyed the grounds. Thank you for your feedback. More

I noticed a trend throughout the course of the previous reviews; a lack of courtesy on the part of the owner/manager. I cannot speak to those experiences; I can only speak to my own, but mine could not have been any more different. I too ordered a vacation through Groupon and extended it through the end of the week. Immediately... More

Groupon buyer - Here's the real deal on how your experience will go. We purchased an upgraded groupon package that included a two night stay in a villa, dinner for two, and a couples massage. First, the positive aspects. It is a beautiful villa and spa resort. The villas are spacious, but slightly dated to the 1980's. We enjoyed a... More

We are happy to hear you had some great food and enjoyed our villa and spa resort. We wanted to bring the Groupon fine print to your attention, which discloses: $ 54.89 for 11% rooms tax, $ 30.00 resort for two days ($15.00 a day), $ 27.55 for the Private dinner ( 47.50 per person or $ 95.00 per couple),...

We booked then read the reviewes. So glad we knew what to expect or we would have been very disappointed. We didn't cancel because the meal and massages meant the most to us and those received consistency good reviews. We agree - The dinner and massages were very nice. But the whole concept is weird. Personally, it is awkward watching... More

We stayed here for two nights on the weekend. I had stayed here once before so we had an idea of what we were getting. The Villa is in a beautiful location out towards the bay. Not sure why they advertise "Southern Wine Country"? There are no Vineyards out at the coast its too cold and it would be Western... More

I really wanted to like this place, but from the first day to the last, our experiences were unpleasant. The owner showed us to our room in the rear building. It was small and dark, not what we expected for a "Deluxe Junior Suite." Once we saw the slipcovers on the small sofa and stained armchairs, we asked to be... More
