Welcome to Cavallo Ranch, built for a new breed of traveler. This home was featured on the Emmy award-winning TV show, Staycation!

About Cavallo:
Inspired by the love of Polo, architecture and travel adventure, Cavallo Ranch by AvantStay sets a new standard in creating an exclusive vacation experience without sacrificing the comforts of home. We set out to rewrite the way you spend time with family and friends, offering a bespoke 5-star personalized experience that will create unforgettable memories. Cavallo includes a staff dedicated to making sure your every want and need is taken care of to the fullest capacity, with endless active-lifestyle experiences to choose from. From horseback riding lessons on the Polo Field to customized Spa & Party Packages, get ready to rediscover adventure on The Ranch.

The Space:
Inside the 8,500 sq ft Mediterranean-style villa, you'll find a formal living room connecting two wings of the house, complete with wood-beamed ceilings, a stucco fireplace, and mosaic tiling. The open-floor plan features a modern Chef's kitchen, Polo Bar, and marble entryway with a spiral staircase leading to a second-floor master suite. Each of the eight equestrian-inspired bedrooms are uniquely named after the various breeds of horses, meticulously designed for comfort and luxury. The pool table, professional poker setup, grand piano and surround-sound speakers make for the perfect adult playground, while the dedicated office space in the master suite creates a relaxing work-from-home experience.

The Experience:
Before your stay, you will have access to Cavallo's dedicated concierge who will work with your group to craft the ultimate, curated itinerary. Whether it be enjoying an in-home message or morning yoga on the white-sand beach, we'll make sure we do the planning, so you can spend more time relaxing. Treat yourself to Chef Justin's dinner in the barnyard - or cast a line and catch your own in the lake filled with freshwater bass. Play a game of tennis or bocce ball then hit the Polo Bar for happy hour. As the sun starts to set, enjoy breathtaking views of the Santa Rosa mountains from the infinity pool. This is Cavallo Ranch, your night has just begun.

Pets are welcome at this property! All pets must be pre-approved a minimum of 48 hours before check-in and we require a $150 non refundable pet fee and a $300 pet deposit to be charged after booking. Please also let us know in advance if you plan on bringing your registered service or support animal so that we can arrange accordingly. Un-authorized animals are subject to a fine of $100 per day, minimum $500. Any damage or additional cleaning attributable to pets shall be the responsibility of the guest.

There is nothing more important to us at AvantStay than the health, safety, and experience of our guests & staff. We've enhanced our cleaning and sanitation protocols and are taking extra care to disinfect all surfaces between reservations with hospital-grade disinfecting solutions.

As a reminder, we do work with 3rd party vendors to maintain the property, and although we adhere to the strictest CDC guidelines and advise all contractors to wear PPE equipment, we can not always enforce. We strongly advise guests to please deny access if any vendors fail to meet and adhere to these standards.
