The homeowner will nickel and dime you and will try to squeeze every penny out of your deposit. She charged $350 to remove a wine stain out of the carpet. You can replace the whole area for that much. She charged $10 for having mascara on an old wash cloth. You can buy a brand new one for $3.99!!! She... More

Stunning views from the three verandas, the pool and hot tub. We stayed in August with warm days and cool nights. Stars abound. We even catered a dinner at the Villa from Lee Ann from The... More

Upon arrival to this property it was all that we thought it could be. Location is great because you are located close to all points of interest. The home was great and clean in most of the areas. The outside pool area needs some help. Bird droppings and mold all over the furniture and tables make for a not to... More

Really loved staying here and will definitely visit again, if the opportunity arises. 10 family members visited, we had a wonderful time. Plenty of room for us all and the beautiful kitchen, pool and other areas in the home were enjoyed by all. Excellent!

Sitting atop the beautiful Sonoma hills and looking down on some of the most beautiful horses in the country, this place looks like it is out of a fairy tale! The Villa is settled in between wineries which makes it a relaxing quiet place to enjoy hanging out. During the day we used the pool and at night the hot... More

I just had my second stay with friends at Black Sterling Villa and realize i was remiss in writing a review from last year's stay! Two years ago I booked rather last minute for a Thanksgiving party with 12 friends. It was perfect! I'm an avid cook and the kitchen is wonderful. The bedrooms were spacious, well maintained, well appointed.... More

My Sonoma weekend getaway for 12 people from around the country was almost ruined by the owners of Black Sterling Vineyards. I booked our stay in early January, after confirming multiple times that the property was available. At 2:19am the morning we were scheduled to check in, I received an email that the owner happened to notice someone else checking... More

As owner of the Black Sterling Villa, we take great care to never double book this luxury home, as we don't own a chain or string of franchise hotels which we may offer a guest accommodations in, should we be double booked--as this guest suggests she should have been offered. The facts, in this guests reservation: The home was previously... More

Our friends arranged the Sterling Villa house for all of us to stay to celebrate a 40th birthday. It was spacious but if you happen to get one of the many pull-out beds (wine cellar) they are not comfortable AT ALL! Full of springs poking you in the back. My wife and I could not even sleep in the same... More
