We have been staying here for 16 years - once or twice a year and come a great distance when we vacation in the wine country of CA. It is like a home away from home. Jerry and Harold are wonderful hosts. The rooms are gorgeous, the breakfast is better than you can fix yourself!!! And wine and cheese in the evening, sitting on the deck when weather allows (most the time). There are 3 wonderful dogs and a couple of llamas!

The view is spectacular. There is a lovely swimming pool (in the summer when it is very warm out it is great - but a bit chilly earlier in the year). We love this place.

Room Tip: We like the French room as it is the only one on the first floor and my husband does not like stairs. All rooms are lovely. The Asti is the best.

We stayed 3 nights in the Sake room and enjoyed every bit of it. Jerry was a very generous host who was always ready for conversation. Our room was very comfortable and clean with plenty of extra space. Jerry always had a beautiful table set each morning for breakfast with a generous amount of fresh fruit awaiting you. A hot breakfast item is served once you are seated. Jerry will give you lots of information on what to see and do. There is a hiking trail close by that he suggested for a morning walk. The evening wine and cheese hour is a relaxing time to meet other guests and sit outside on the patio enjoying nice conversation. Once here, you are treated like family. We would definitely stay here again.

I sent an email because the website is AWFUL and clearly designed by someone with zero knowledge of hospitality or client services....after learning of their availability I responded with driving distance and some follow up questions on the BBQ the owner mentioned in the email and he replied "this is not the place for you".

Ah of course! Because I actually expect some level of decency and knowledge of hospitality from the owner of a venue I am spending 400/day to visit! I can't imagine how awful the service would be if you actually stay here!

You are correct Jerry, this is not the place for me or anyone I know and I'll be sure to tell them the same! It is quite telling that this place is the only one with so much availability....no mystery there!

I am writing in response to the email "Go Elsewhere!", Bella Villa Messina is very proud of their well designed website and ease of maneuvering. We are always happy to have our guests and perspective guests give us a phone call for personal help whatever the reason, If there is a problem maneuvering our website we will be happy to talk with you and meet all your questions and needs by telephone.

If we are having a special event such as a barbecue on July 4th for example, all guests are invited to attend the get together and enjoy delightful dishes prepared by Bella Villa Messina and close friends that often attend. These events provide lively conversation with lovely and intelligent people from all walks of life; winery owners, tasting room experts, other B&B owners and managers, local restaurant owners and chefs, and neighbors and friends.

In order to experience the high level of service and helpfulness that we give to each and every guest staying with us one needs to actually experience it first hand. Throughout breakfast and our cocktail hour there is always an appropriate and interesting conversation among the guests and with myself that provides for a comfortable and enlightening meal. Much time is spent after the meals to provide local information for touring wineries, dining, hiking and any other event or activity a guest may be interested in. We often help plan a guest itinerary for one or several days of their stay including providing maps with marked routes and destinations. We are more than happy to connect them with specific wineries or restaurants when they are looking for a particular wine or meal experience.

With Kindest Regards,

Jerry Messina
Bella Villa Messina

As all the reviews have stated, the hosts of Bella Villa Messina really go out of their way to enhance your visit. We stayed in the French room, which was very charming and well appointed. Breakfast was excellent as well as the wine and cheese served in the evening. Jerry had fantastic recommendations for wineries and the overall area. Thank you for a beautiful experience!

Jerry and Harold go out of their way to make you feel at home in theirs. After two days it felt like we had known them for years. They were tremendously accommodating and helpful with hints about what to see, where to eat and where to try the wine. We quickly realized they are well known and respected throughout the area. The rooms were very comfortable and well appointed. Highly recommend.
