“Absolutely Wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

We stayed with Jerry and Harold for my birthday weekend. Jerry is an incredible host, making
sure all of his guests are happy. Even though we have been to Sonoma, Jerry helped with
the wineries that we had not thought of, including "J" for champagne. He called the restaurant where we were to have dinner and made sure they knew it was my birthday--Jerry knows everyone and they all adore him, as we do! The breakfast as my husband says "is to die for". We both can't say enough about our experience-- Yes, we are already planning a trip back! Book early!!

Room Tip: Asti room is the largest!

We loved staying at this bed and breakfast - it made our trip to Healdsburg, CA truly great. We loved the wine and cheese gathering in the evening, the company was wonderful, and the views from this bed and breakfast are incredible. We spent a lot of time on the deck, admiring the scenery and the pet llamas. Jerry and Harold are fantastic b&b owners, very personable and very friendly. They were incredibly accommodating with any requests we made (including one that was fairly unusual - they were just great about it). The breakfast was also wonderful.

Our only complaint is that it is fairly far from any downtown restaurants. We heard a few stories of people getting stuck in downtown Healdsburg for a few hours waiting for cabs to come from neighboring towns to pick them up. This was not an issue for us, but something to keep in mind.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Italian room and while it was perfectly nice, it was a little on the small side. We...

Our stay with Jerry and Harold was beyond compare. I have traveled all over Europe and the US and we have never had a more welcoming greeting and stay. Jerry is passionate about his guests enjoying their stay at Bella Villa Messina as well as their time in Sonoma. The breakfast spread that Jerry created was the perfect start to the day. He even made me Gluten Free blueberry pancakes ( what a treat). Daily Wine and cheese was a great time to relax and have great conversations overlooking the Alexander Valley mountains. All the raving reviews are correct. Book your stay now and be prepared to have an experience you will never forget.

My husband brought us here for our 30th wedding Anniversary, and he could not of picked a better B & B! The hosts are so friendly, knowledgeable ( will help you plan your day with maps , references etc) warm and welcoming.
Jerry, is an amazing chef! I would go back just for breakfast! if I could. They have a wonderful happy hour.
Now our room.... oh la la with a private balcony and huge bathroom , with a jazcuzzi tub, a fireplace etc., it is loaded with antiques . I could probably babble on for days on how great it is but you should try for yourself.
i promise you will not be disappointed!

Jerry and Harold are great! Very kind, approachable, and accommodating. My husband and I stayed two nights this week and they were great - helped us plan out our tasting routes and provided referrals for free tastings. Every winery they recommended was fantastic!

We just spent two wonderful nights at Belle Villa Messina. The hosts Jerry and Harold are so accommodating. Jerry mapped out our plans for each day and pointed us in the right direction on what to see. The 2 hr cocktail hour was delicious. The outdoor seating area is a great place to watch the sun set. I don't there is one detail that was left out right down to the ice chest provided with waters each morning as we set out for the day. We would definitely recommend this B&B!

An added bonus were the two great couples we meet that were also staying there!

Ron & Mariann

Room Tip: We stayed in the Burgandy room but every room looked beautiful.

We made a last minute reservation at this Bed and Breakfast and didn't expect much. We were greatly surprised by how wonderful it was. From the owners and staff and the warm reception, to the beautiful atmosphere and stunning views, this was the highlight of our weekend. We wish we would have booked for more than one night. Jerry and Harold, the owners, were so welcoming and helpful. Everything about this place was amazing. We will definitely stay here again and will highly recommend it to our friends and family!!
