The house is absolutely gorgeous and is even better than on the pictures. We got to ride horses for a separate fee in the morning. But that's all on the positive side of things.
Janna had the worst customer service as a host I have ever encountered using AirBnB. As we first arrived to the property, we had to wait outside the gate for 30 min, because the access code Janna texted us a day before was incorrect. The connection was very spotty, so luckily a neighbor was passing by and shared the code to get in.
After texting Janna that we couldn't get in, she was extremely rude and unprofessional. She said it was our own fault and after 1 hour of texting back and forth provided an additional 30 min of check out time. This has already ruined the first impression.
She never met us to greet in person. The next day for check out, she texted me that she will be there, but never showed up. Our entire group waited for 30 min and she finally let us know that she is not able to make it.
To our entire group's surprise, she texted the following evening saying that we did not follow the checkout procedures. Then said that we owe her additional $950 (!!!) for damages. One of the things she claimed was a broken chair from Pottery Barn for $115 (which nobody even used, as we spent majority of our stay on the deck). Clearly, she just wanted to get more money out of us.
This was the most disappointing stay ever. When we communicated via text and I mentioned that I was pregnant and this is too much stress for me, she said, "I feel bad for your unborn child." This is just an example of this person's interaction.
My recommendation to everyone would be avoiding booking with this host. She is extremely dishonest and flaky. Save yourself some pain and go with somebody else! This will make your vacation much more pleasant!
The reservation was canceled 204 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.

The villa has spectacular vineyard views from nearly every window, and there is a working Friesian horse ranch on the property, so you also have views of big, black, bold Friesian horses grazing in the pastures!
