Bella Villa Messina, the comfortable and gracious Tuscan style villa retreat, sits perched above the rolling hills of the Sonoma Valley in the wine country of charming Healdsburg, its hosts, Jerry and Harold, welcoming each guest as a revered friend or family member. These innkeepers have it down, living and thriving in Healdsburg, they are now considered locals. The couple... More

Jerry and Harold are the best hosts. Jerry was so informative with advise on where to go for lunch and dinner. The rooms are beautiful and Jerry's breakfasts were delicious. Would highly recommend staying there while in Sonoma. Love Jerry and Harold.

Jerry and Harold were so welcoming and after being greeted with wine and cheese, the patio was a perfect spot to enjoy a little quiet time before heading to downtown Healdsburg for dinner. They are very knowledgeable about all the offerings in the area, so as the previous reviewer mentioned, there's no need to bring a guide book. I felt... More

We couldn't have found a better, more relaxing social experience short of staying additional nights! Our hosts made us feel at home in this exquisitely decorated hilltop 'Villa'. We had obviously seen the pictures, but our arrival still was breathtaking as we entered the long driveway, climbed further to expanding 360 degree views and a most beautiful home. We arrived...

Bella Villa Messina is a beautiful place over looking Healdsburg. For a change, we decided to let Jerry Messina our great host, plan our winery and restaurant itinerary and he impressed us! Rooms had terrific views of the valley. Cocktail hour was full of great wines and edibles, and breakfasts were delicious. We will definitely be back.

We just returned from a 5 night stay with friends at Villa Bella Messina. What a wonderful experience we had with the gracious hospitality of Jerry and Harold in their beautiful Villa with spectacular views of at least three famous valleys and amazing sunsets. Leave your tour guide book at home because Jerry is exceptionally knowledgeable of wines, wineries and... More

The property had great views, well maintained and extremely clean. Jerry and Harold could not have been better hosts, especially providing advice and directions to the wine country. My experience will be a lasting memory that will be hard to match.

This is a wonderful B&B experience with the amenities of a hotel. The hosts were wonderful and extraordinarily accommodating. The breakfasts were so good with a variety of special treats--lovely California fruits, special breads as well as home cooked selections. The rooms were spacious, well appointed and quiet at night for a good night's sleep. Jerry Messina, innkeeper extraordinaire, gives... More

My wife and I were the sole guests for three nights at the inn. Harold and jerry were wonderful hosts, with great breakfasts and wine tasting every night. We were upgraded to the asti room for no additional cost. While we enjoy B & B with a full house, our hosts gave us great recommendations on dining and winery visits.... More

The property was very nice, had great views. Jerry knew a lot about the area and had great suggestions on where to go for wineries, dinner etc. Having previously stayed at another B&B on the trip, I have to say that Bella Villa Messina did not live up to our expectations. Breakfasts were OK, good start for a day of... More
