We enjoyed our two nights at the Villa. A very creative chef Tom the Inn Keeper. He was charming and very accomadating. The Inn is located on a hillside and Tom has special plans for a unique St.Valentines Celebration. Looking forward to spending time in Paso Robles in the near future.

Our host, Tom, made us feel comfortable as soon as we arrived, with a quick lesson in winemaking and a glass of pinot. He recommended two VERY good restaurants and accompanied us to one and entertained us at the other with his guitar playing. We'll be back.

Spent a couple of terrific nights at Tom's place. Comfortable and relaxing. Views to die for. We even helped in the wine making. Tom makes great wine by the way. Looking forward to seeing him and it again. If you have a chance to hear Tom play guitar at a local venue don't miss it! His breakfast was delicious!

I have never been to Paso Robles and wanted the perfect getaway. I found the Villa Valdemosa on line and called the Tom and the next thing you know I had my perfect getaway. When I arrived I couldn't believe how beautiful it was. The Villa over looked all of Paso Robles and was right in the heart of all the best wineries. Tom and his home gave us the most hospitality and best experience I have ever had. I now have my perfect getaway for the future and plan to return shortly. It is truly a magical place.

My fiancee (now husband), best friend, brother and a new friend we had never met before stayed at Villa Valdemosa for a weekend getaway over Columbus Day weekend... oh, and we got married while we were there.

First, regarding the Bed and Breakfast: Fabulous. Each of us are regular travelers, although most of our experience is out of country... even our dog has circumnavigated the planet... and each of us felt that the charm of Villa Valdemosa coupled the graciousness of our host made for a wonderfully memorable stay. Tom was actually performing at a nearby vineyard when we arrived. He left a note for us on the table in the entry to let us know which rooms to tuck into as well as passes and a map to nearby wineries. Anxious to meet our host, we started with Sculpterra where he was playing. Contrary to a previous reviewer's experience, we found the area to be easily navigable. The nearby wineries were each lovely with very individual personalities; all of them were enjoyable. We were welcomed warmly, engaged in intelligent banter about the varietals and looked after with a smile.

We were having so much fun at the wineries, that we barely made it back to the Villa for our wedding!

To the topic of having our wedding at Villa Valdemosa: planned, executed and celebrated without a hitch! The overlook patio in the sunset was perfection. The wine maker's feast (prepared by the host) was scrumptious. We drank wine and port late into the night on the back porch and woke to the smell of fresh coffee and pastries which we snacked on until Tom's utterly FABULOUS breakfast. The souffle was light, yet creamy and Tom very conscientiously took my best friend's vegetarian status into consideration in the preparation (extra bacon for ME!).

You know, you travel here and there... you stay in a five star in Munich followed by a boutique hotel in Bangkok followed by a bare bones in Chuuk... a well appointed room anywhere is simply that, a well appointed room. Our rooms here were certainly well appointed: the bed was big and comfortable, the bedding thick and smooth, the bathroom huge (garden tub AND walk in shower) with big fluffy towels. What makes Villa Valdemosa such a special place to stay comes down to the people running it. Tom is a very genuine, very real person... yes, the Villa is a business, but the hospitality is the heart of it. Tom is "good people"... this comes through in the Villa.

Not only do I recommend Villa Valdemosa, I can guarantee that we will return ourselves.

The jet port at Paso Robles makes this a very easy weekend getaway! All we had to do was park the plane, jump into the rental car they had waiting for us and scoot over to the Vila... Paso Robles truly is a hidden gem. Explore it!

Four of us spent one night at this charming well-sited, Tuscan-style B & B. Tom Roebuck is an interesting, laid back host who promptly responded to our every request.

The room was gorgeous! The website does not do the rooms or the property justice. It was everything we expected and more! It was beautiful, quiet and relaxing.

We arrived late in the evening and were greeted warmly. We were served a delicious plate of cheese, crackers and apples by the chef. Both mornings the owner prepared a mouth watering breakfast. We took our delicious coffee and sat on a deck overlooking the beautiful vineyards before adventuring to the nearby wineries for a weekend of memorable wine tasting. We recieved excellent personal service by the owner, Tom, who made sure all of our needs were taken care of.

We are looking foward to our next trip and we will be staying here again. We would highly recommend the Villa Valdemosa to everyone.
