“Gate House And hosts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

We are repeat guests of Bella Villa Messina and have nothing to say except WOW....
Jerry and Harold are truly the most exceptional hosts ever, different as night and day the perfect match for knowledge and entertainment. Jerry will actually prepare your meal to suit your taste and more. We loved staying in the gate house which is not found online it has its own bathroom but the shower is inside the main house, they provided us with lovely long robes for showering.
There is a terrible review written on the gate house and truly people like that should never stay at a B an B. We totally enjoyed the privacy and the views were awesome as it has windows everywhere.
Happy hour incredible.......
Breakfast to die for....
JERRY thanks for the personal touch, loved the chef outfit on Sunday ad the convertible ride....

This is a do not miss in Sonoma.
See you next year
Cynthia and Richard

My wife and I stayed two nights at the Bella Villa Messina recently while we toured the Sonoma wineries and area. Our room, one of the smaller units, was well appointed and very comfortable. The villa is beautiful and located conveniently just outside Healdsburg. Jerry and Harold are wonderful hosts. Jerry's breakfasts were terrific. The blueberry pancakes were superb. The nightly wine and cheese happy hour features wine, cheese, fresh fruit, and a beautiful setting. We would definitely recommend this B&B.

My girlfriend and I recently chose Sonoma Vally and Bella Villa Messina as our wine country destination while making a trip along the entire Pacific Coast and central California. We both still can not stop raving about our experience, from the gorgeous architecture, stunning artwork, beautiful views, cozy rooms and last but not least our incredible host, Jerry. This is one host that genuinely cares about your experience at both his B&B and Sonoma County. From his warm, gracious demeanor to his extensive knowledge of both the town and valley, you will feel so welcome and at home. Our room was both large and quiet and had its own unique charm from the others. Plus our stay included a free cocktail hour with tremendous wine and cheeses to choose from. Our last night included a drink with sunset view on the patio and felt like the perfect end to our time there. We will most definitely be back!

Room Tip: Sake Room has the BEST sunrise views of the valley....

My wife Kathy and I recently spent at night at Bella Villa Messina during our vacation to Sonoma and Napa in August .. and being our very first stay at a B&B .. all I can say is OUTSTANDING!! Jerry was a very gracious host and made us feel immediately at home and made our stay at his great B&B a memorable visit (incredible hill top views!). The room was very nice, along with the outstanding breakfast and wine H-Hour the evening of our arrival (he even got us a reservation at a close by, excellent restaurant at the last minute). I would strongly recommend anyone to stay at Bella .. and if we return to the Sonoma area, will be certainly planning to stay there again. Gary G.

Life is full of surprises: some good, some not so much. Bella Villa Messina was a wonderfully good surprise. Large, quiet room. Breakfast is amazing. You would pay at least $60/couple for this breakfast at a SF hotel. Great views. Jerry knows everything about Healdsburg and the area. Evening wine and cheese is great. We will definitely be back.

We are from Santa Rosa , were in Healdsburg for a concert and decided to find a place for the evening. From our first inquiry about the villa we were impressed. A few minutes from down town, an absolutely beautiful place. Quiet, secluded, extremely clean, the owners so friendly and helpful. Truly a gem in the wine country! What a great getaway for a local ! We look forward to returning soon!

This quaint B&B is a wonderful place to stay. The owners are so accommodating and hospitable. The breakfast and cocktail hour are special perks and quite delicious. The rooms are clean and comfortable. We definitely recommend staying here on your wine country trip and we plan to visit Jerry again. You don't want to miss out on this charming experience!
