Everything before and during this trip was wonderful. Renting was easy, the description was accurate, check-in was easy, and, most importantly, the house was gorgeous and perfect for a weekend.
However, I am extremely disappointed with what occurred after checking out of the house. Despite spending hours cleaning the house (in addition to paying the $225 cleaning fee), I have received countless passive aggressive TEXT messages from Mr. O'Kane. A 12% tax was specified to be collected upon arrival, but because I never saw Mr. O'Kane, I never provided him with payment. Once he had heard that I did not leave a check in the house, I would have expected a message on Airbnb asking when I can send payment. The 15 text messages I have received over the course of the last few days are defensive, aggressive, and definitely unprofessional. It was enough that he bothered me during my vacation, but now he continues to bother me during work. I have reported this behavior to airbnb.
Our family came to Maison Bleu from Virginia, Pennsylvania and SFO for a wedding. The house is well stocked and had everything we needed. One night, after a short trip to the local Safeway food store, we grilled veggies, chicken and steaks for an enjoyable meal. All the dishes, glasses, cookware were on hand to meet our needs. Other family members staying at Calistoga hotels stopped by, and after a tour of Maison Bleu were envious. The house is clean, warm and comfortable with plenty of seating areas. The upstairs bedroom and four bedrooms downstairs were very comfortable. All three bathrooms are modern and clean. The front porch looks out to a vineyard across the street, and was a regular meeting place at all times of the day. We used the bikes to go into the town, and had a ping-pong tourney at the table in the back yard.
We could not have been happier with Maison Bleu. We were a group of six women celebrating one friend's significant birthday, with four of us flying in from the east coast, and some had never been to Napa Valley before. The house was very clean, warm and welcoming with comfortable sitting areas and a beautiful well-appointed kitchen (important for this group). Paul was very helpful and accomodating and almost always got back in touch quickly. The upstairs bedroom was beautiful, and four bedrooms downstairs were very comfortable; the only odd part is the downstairs bathrooms, where the showers are open to the room and the floors get very wet as a result. Other than that, it was practically perfect. The front porch looks out to grapevines across the street, and was a great place to have morning coffee and afternoon wine, watching the fog lift and the skies clear. We did not take advantage of the backyard area due to limited time, but it would be a great addition for a group in warmer weather. The neighborhood is nice and welcoming; great running/walking and friendly neighbors. Spottswood Vineyard is literally steps away, so our only regret was that we didn't book a tour well in advance, as they request. I recommend this place highly and hope to be back one day.
Madison Bleu is wonderful. We rented it to celebrate a friends birthday. The house was perfect. It is well stocked with everything we needed. The location is perfect and the sunset from the front porch is stunning. Thank you very much for the use of your lovely home, and hope we can use it again sometime.
Great house, great location, great experience...I highly recommend staying here!
We had an awesome stay at the Maison Bleu over New Year's 2014-15. There were eight of us, and house had plenty of space for everything we wanted to do. We cooked a bunch, hung out in the back yard and great common space, and overall had a great time.
The house itself is beautiful. It's clean, well-appointed and nicely decorated, and stock full of cooking equipment, plates/glasses, and all that good stuff that you need when you're cooking and eating up a storm. The bedrooms were nice and a good size, and the bathrooms were super clean and modern. The master in particular is really large with a great window that looks out onto the deck over the backyard. We were able to use the backyard quite a bit, even in the middle of winter. There's great furniture out there, with a huge dining table and outdoor couches as well as a firepit that really helped when it got down close to freezing at night.
Paul was a fantastic host and provided us with everything we needed to have a fun, comfortable few days. We'd go back for sure.
Maison Bleu was a great experience for my family and I. The house had every amenity thinkable for hosting a great Thanksgiving dinner for 13 people. Bedrooms worked out great, comfortable living areas, and the beautiful backyard had us never wanting to leave. The bathrooms are awkward at first, but people got over the glass doors. The washing machine was not working, so over all that was the only issue we encountered.
Beautiful house perfect for large gatherings.
