“The perfect place to stay in Healdsburg”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

We came to Healdsburg for the first time and stayed with Jerry and Harold for one night. The hospitality was amazing and really enhanced our stay. From the great wine and cheese at cocktail hour to the delicious french toast in the morning, we could not have asked for a better experience. They had great winery and restaurant recommendations as well. All in all, we recommend Bella Villa Messina without hesitation.

We were celebrating our twentieth wedding anniversary with a short visit to Healdsburg and stayed with Jerry and Harold. We were entertained and treated like long lost friends even though it was our first visit. They could not have been any nicer to us and their home was beautiful and it made our anniversary unforgettable. The room was great. The views were great and we can't wait to visit again.

We spent 3 nights with Jerry and Harold. Jerry's breakfasts are indeed excellent (more kudos for the Hawaiian French Toast), and his advice about the area helps you plan your days. Every spot that he recommended was excellent, including the scenic areas and the wineries. Plan to be around 5:30-6:30 for happy hour - a great way to unwind and chat about the day before heading out to dinner.

We really enjoyed out stay!

Room Tip: The Burgundy, French, and Asti rooms are all wonderful.

We had a great time staying in the Italian room for a long weekend. Jerry and Harold put out a tremendous dose of hospitality and knowledge of the area. The breakfasts and happy hours were great and made for great conversation with our hosts and other guests. The French Toast was my favorite breakfast item, so be sure to ask Jerry about that one. Jerry also would call in reservations for us at some of the great restaurants in Healdburg and had great recommendations for vineyards in the area for wine tastings. They both really went the extra mile to ensure we had a great vacation!

Thanks again!

This bed and breakfast was as wonderful as everyone has made it out to be. Jerry and Harold were amazing hosts who gave us a true home away from home. Their house is immaculate with perfect views of this beautiful area. Jerry provided great home cooked breakfasts each morning and the happy hour was a lot of fun. We enjoyed getting to know the other guests as the environment was very intimate yet we also had the privacy and space we needed. Jerry and Harold were very knowledgable of the areas and really helped make our trip complete!

What a pleasant surprise to drive up to this beautiful house on a hill overlooking the Dry Creek and Alexander Valley areas of Sonoma county. Jerry met us at the door and quickly ushered us in. The first words out of his mouth were, "this is your lucky day, I've upgraded you to the Asti Suite." This happens to be the best room in the house. A huge suite, complete with 4 poster bed, deck with loungers, fireplace, and a large bathroom with a jacuzzi tub and separate shower. The decor in all the rooms is simply spectacular. We soon learned that Harold is the antique collector, and both he and Jerry have quite the talent for decorating. Cocktail hour is a great time to hear Jerry and Harold's many stories. Jerry will steer you in the right direction for wine tasting and dinner reservations. Willi's and Bacci in Healdsburg were fantastic! You will not be disappointed, and don't want to miss an opportunity to experience this wonderful place! Jim & Cindi

Room Tip: All rooms are quaint and beautifully decorated. We recommend you try the Asti Suite if you want a l...

My boyfriend and I stayed at Bella Villa Messina this summer on a weekend getaway to wine country. We had a fantastic time and Jerry and Harold could not have been more hospitable. Cocktail hour was unforgettable as was the breakfast each morning. Jerry mapped out activities which best suited us and got us a reservation at a great restaurant. We had a blast!
