Napa Valley is a world reknown travel destination. We love the northern part of the wine country. Calistoga offers the tranquil setting that one is looking for in a vacation or break away. In many ways Sonoma and Alexander Valley offer the relaxed traveler a lot of opportunities, especially for the ones that look for family-owned/boutique wineries or for people that long for "just a weekend away" with family and friends from the city.

No smoking inside the house.
We enjoyed our stay very much. The villa was very neat and clean and everything working. We enjoyed the hillside views and took advantage of the nice hot tub. Our host Michele was helpful for any questions we had. We do plan to stay there again some time.
We had a wonderful time. The setting was spectacular and, although the house was modest, it was nice and comfortable inside, with everything you could want (including a great hot tub). It's a stunning location (although you will want to plan for designated drivers or Ubers in order to return home up the rural road after a day of wine tasting).
The ONLY problem was the shower water was quite inconsistent. Sometimes we had great pressure and lots of hot water, sometimes we only had a cold trickle. I asked the (very friendly!) neighbor/hostess (or hostess' relative?) about this and she said it had to do with the weather. All I can figure is it is powered by solar. That should be good a very large percentage of the time in Napa. But if you are picky about this and need certainty, it's worth considering.
Otherwise, everything was perfect.
We are thrilled that you liked your stay. Sorry to hear that you encountered issues with water pressure. We wish we had heard about it while you were still up there to address it immediately. Following your review, we re-adjusted the water pressure and it is all back to normal. The water pressure is generated with electricity from the grid - it is a very simple thing to adjust. We are committed to ensure that our guest have a great experience.
Hope you are coming back soon again!
My wife and another couple stayed at Peter's villa and had beyond an amazing time. The property is gorgeous, well taken care off and in a very accessible area to both Sonoma and Napa Valley. Peter was beyond helpful, as this was my first airbnb stay, and even provided an extra propane tank as we planned to cook all of the meals at the villa.
We would stay at this property again no questions asked. Not sure how often we will get back to the area, but Peter's property will always be #1 when we are looking for a place to stay.
We had a wonderful experience at the villa. Very easy communication with the owners and a beautiful home. Thanks for your hospitality! Would absolutely recommend to future visitors.
We stayed at the Villa with our daughter and son-in-law after spending 4 days in San Francisco. The vacation started here! The views were spectacular! Very peaceful and quiet. Pictures do not do this place justice. The hot tub is amazing; even better at night lit up by a sky bursting with stars. Inside the house is immaculate with many little extras left to make it feel like home (or better); fluffy robes, lots of towels, a few food items, condiments, candles, a picnic basket. A perfect place for a relaxing getaway; yet only a few minutes from town. We were here for a family wedding so didn't get to do much touring. We will definitely be back and would absolutely recommend this to anyone visiting the area.
We had a wonderful time at the villa. We were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary so we wanted somewhere private but also close to wine country and this was the perfect spot. We were close to both Napa and Sonoma valleys. Peter has put on a new deck, and bought a new hot tub and gas grill. The Villa was very clean and the housekeeper stopped in on our first morning to make sure we had everything we needed. We will definitely stay here again next time we are in the area.
The Napa property was great. Everything was in great working condition and much looked new. Clean, comfortable and a short drive from both Napa and Sonoma.
We also appreciated the view of the mountains, the back porch and the huge kitchen.
There are a few houses on the property so although we enjoyed plenty of privacy, you are not completely alone on the mountain.
