We had the best get away we could possibly hope for! The place is amazing, and we felt like staying in a five star hotel and being at home at the same time! We had everything we needed, and enjoyed every second!
Everything was fabulous, the location, the resort, the apartment. We will definitely be back any time we come back to the area.
The service we received from the resort was very pleasant and professional.
Dana was very accommodating. She graciously offered her help along the whole reservation process and even after we arrived.
I would recommend to anyone looking for a quiet, comfortable and romantic getaway in the wine country.
Dana was very responsive with all her messages and questions I had for her! I'm very glad I booked this place with her, the place is beautiful! And the resort is definitely nicer than I've expected. A very romantic getaway! The resort even has its own vineyard you can go explore.
The room was clean and very nicely decorated. Me and my girlfriend couldn't be more cozy! Although the multiple light switches can be a bit confusing. But the place is perfect for that getaway you're looking for! Has a hot tub right in the bed room!
The cleaning service only comes if you ask them, which we don't mind.
Dana was wonderful! She answered all of my questions and many emails and we were welcomed with a beautiful space and complimentary bottle of wine! The condo looked exactly like the photos and we were all very pleased.
Our stay at Vino Bello was exactly what we were looking for: A clean and spacious 1 bedroom suite that's close to downtown Napa and other wineries with an amazing pool! This was by far the best deal to stay at - and we did tons of research. Dana was so easy to work with and made our stay extremely pleasant - and the bottle of red wine was a great touch to welcome us. On our last night, we unfortunately woke up to a 6.0 earthquake (yikes!) and the next morning, Dana immediately touched base to make sure everything was fine. We were all safe, and the place did not suffer any damage. It was a memorable weekend :)
FYI - Uber now picks up in Napa, and we easily took uber to all our destinations to avoid driving - it was only $25 to get from the resort to Yountville.
My only critique is that the mattress on the pull out couch isn't very comfortable - you can request a mattress pad from the front desk which helps a bit.
Dana was our host for a 1 bedroom condo at the Meritage Resort (Vino Bello). The room looked identical to the pictures that are posted. We had all of the benefits that we would at a regular hotel room except that the cleaning service did not come to clean up after us during our stay, only before and after. If we wanted them to come and clean up during the day while we were out it was an additionall fee. We did not get this service for we figured that 4 adults could make their own beds. The resort itself was really nice and clean, it had several pools and places to get food. Located in a secluded area around some business buildings, so if you want to go outside of the resort you need to either drive yourself, take a cab, or use the resort's free shuttle service. Everyone at the resort was very very professional and kind.
Overall it was an awesome resort and our room was perfect for us 4 that stayed in it. Dana always responded the same day that I sent her a message. The booking process was super easy. No hidden fees whatsoever, unless YOU choose to sign up for something additional at check in.
Would definitely book this again if we decide to come back.
Such an amazing weekend in Napa. This property and condo were exactly as described. The staff was friendly and helpful. We definitely had everything we needed and more. Dana was right, they really do push the 90 minute "breakfast" which is really a meeting to get you to buy a time share, glad we knew ahead of time not to go to this. Thanks Dana!
In short, our experience was perfect. I guess I didn't fully read the description of the place originally (probably because I was mesmerized by the photos instead), but it is a timeshare condo attached to the beautiful Meritage Resort. This was a pleasant surprise because we got to take advantage of all the privileges of the resort while still getting to return to our large and spacious condo. To be honest, it's hard to tell where the timeshare condos begin and end with the resort. I guess if I were to nitpick anything, it would just be the "welcome" phone call to solicit me for a timeshare breakfast. All I said was "No thank you" and that was the end of it. Like I said, our experience was awesome and I definitely got points with the wife. Thanks Dana.

Married with three beautiful young daughters. At this point in my life, my only hobbies are whatever I am doing with my girls. Some may call it boring. I call it joy.
I am a timeshare owner who loves to travel. Timeshares (resale, NEVER EVER direct from developer NO MATTER WHAT) have immeasurably enhanced my family's travel lifestyle.
