My husband and I travel for pleasure at least 3-5 times a year. Me for business 10-15 times a year. The first phone call I made to the Villa's @ Messina Hof was answered by Emily. She listened to what I wanted and then suggested rooms that would meet my requests. The only time I had to call her again is when I needed to make a correction. I received a confirmation email from them when the rooms were booked and then follow up email's related to activities going on at the Vineyard and the Villa's.
I booked two rooms at the Villa to surprise my Sister for a big yr birthday celebration! Upon arrival I met with Jean who gave us the lay of the land and keys to both rooms so we could have her birthday gifts, flowers, balloons, wine, etc waiting for her arrival. Jean saw to every need or question that I or my husband raised, she is an great lady!
We were able to do the wine tour with the wonderfully animated Michael who was soo much fun. This was my 10+ time of doing the tour but my sister and my husband's first time and they enjoyed it immensely.
We had the Thomas Jefferson room & The Venus room. I put my sister and her boyfriend in the Thomas Jefferson room as it has the greatest view of the pond, waterfall and the vineyards!
The Venus is a lovely room but the view is that of the parking lot, but the balcony is still equally inviting for a sipping your wine late a night (excellent breeze to in the am for sipping your Mimosa!)
We had a lovely breakfast and even visited with Mr & Mrs. Bonariggo (the owners of Messina Hof) while we ate. Mrs. Bonariggo is a lovely lady and her husband is an outstanding gentleman.
We live in B/CS and this was our first stay at the Villa's @ Messina Hof. As I previously stated I go there frequently with girlfriends and business associates but we will make it a point from this year forward to stay at least one every other year for a birthday celebration.
We vacation 28-40 days a year and are 5 years out from full retirement!
