Our beautiful Pleasants Valley homes offer outstanding accommodations in an excellent location far away from all city noises, yet only 25 minutes to Napa downtown for all it has to offer.
There is a ～5 acres flat land in front portion of our property，where our guests host all kinds of special event： wedding ceremony，wedding receptions，graduation party，reunion party，etc。
In the middle of our property， right before the hill， there are a house compound， which contains 2 single family houses and yard around those 2 houses。
The first house is a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom country style 2 story, approximately 1900sf, with picturesque orchard and western hills views. It can comfortably accommodate up to 8 guests (10 max possible with someone sleep on the couch in living room...please inquire first to confirm).
The first floor has a formal living room, formal dining room (with seating for up to 10), chefs kitchen with breakfast nook, sun room, half bathroom and master bedroom with private bath across the hall.
The second floor has 2 bedrooms, each with mountain view and a full bath in between.
There is a wonderful wrap around deck over-looking the front yard and llama and alpacas gazing area (～ 5 acres).
The second house is a 2 bedroom 1 bathroom one story cottage, approximately 1100sf, with picturesque orchard and western hills views. It can comfortably accommodate up to 6 guests (there is a Queen size futon in living room besides a couch).
It has a formal living room, huge kitchen with dining area (with seating for up to 6), 1 full bathroom and 2 bedrooms.
All rooms offer designer furnishings and elements to make your country stay comfortable and enjoyable, with a feeling of 'home'.
There is a wonderful deck over-looking the side yard and orchard area and west hill view in distance.
There are about 50 ft distance (paved steps) between the two houses，far enough to have each private yard but yet close enough no hiking needed :-)
In the back of houses, there are 15 acres of orchard and hill, which offers you with private hiking trail all the way to the top of hill and stunning valley panoramic view of whole valley.
You will find our farm offer the best location to unwind and relax, stargazing is one of our favorite night game since city light are so far away, and yet it is so close to all the area has to offer: 25 minutes to napa downtown, 1 hour to san francisco downtown, 7 minutes to all local conveniences (grocery, shopping mall, bank, hospital,etc) .
We looked for a farm that provides peace and tranquility. This one caught our eyes with the convenient location, beautiful rolling hill view, right acreage, good irrigation water source, and 2 lovely single family houses with a large barn.
Gorgeous views of the valley from the ridge. Magnificent oak trees on hillside along the hiking path. Llama and alpacas in the field. Beautiful rustic barn that can be used for events.
We had a mid-May wedding here and it was wonderful. The owners are such lovely people... I found myself wishing that they were with us for the weekend.
The location feels remote, while being an easy drive from SF & minutes from major grocery stores & other amenities (nice when planning a big event!) Our guests were able to stay late and still drive home to SF, while many stayed the entire weekend and camped throughout the property. The houses were comfortable (my bed was a dream to sleep in!!!) and easy to cook in, even for 85 people!
I have to say... I've been hesitant to write this review because I fear someone will not take care of the property, appreciating it & it's generous owners, in the way that it deserves. It is a precious magical place... a rare gem! That said, if you're looking for hot tubs and tennis courts, this isn't your place. But if you appreciate natural beauty and the people you're with... it's perfect.
Several of our guests have asked about renting it, either for weddings, or just to hang out for a weekend with friends. We really loved it.
A group of 10 of us were looking for a house large enough to accommodate 5 couples traveling to Napa for a friends wedding. Having been to napa multiple times we knew finding a property that large was going to be a challenge! We are so happy to have come across Bin & Lawrence! Their farm was perfect! The two houses are ideal for a large groups and the property is beautiful! The larger of the two houses was spacious enough for all 10 of us to cook and have dinner together each evening which was an added benefit not having to go back out for dinner. You are away from town (which is very peaceful) but as mentioned in their listing you are only 10-15 minutes away from anything you would need including a trader joes :) Bin and Lawrence were wonderful hosts and available by text any time we needed them! Thank you again for a very pleasant stay!
Bin and Lawrence are such great hosts, very considerate and accommodating, aside from the fact that they provided a heavenly place to our family.
I rented the house for my family reunion; my family came from different parts of the country, all have different departure schedules, Bin kindly agreed to let us stay over check-out time till we have to separate later in the afternoon. Bin and Lawrence, thank you for the perfect memory!
Many many thanks to our host Lawrence and Bin! The limo and winery they recommended were awesome, so we booked the limo to get to the winery and we had a great time there. And the night we spent in the ranch was just soothing and relaxing, we woke up in the fresh, cool air in the morning and enjoyed our freshly made coffee in the bright kitchen. Nothing is better than a mini vacation/getaway in such a great place! Highly recommended!
Let me start by saying that we own 4 vacation rental properties, and we have used VRBO numerous times on our own vacations and this is by far the worst experience EVER. The owner states that the house is 25 minutes to downtown Napa and she told me it was 20 minutes on the phone. In fact it is 30 miles to downtown Napa and will take you at least 35 minutes if you have no traffic. If you want to go to a winery, plan on spending 45-60 minutes minimum driving each way. The house is old and in disrepair. There is no privacy in the bathroom, door knobs came off in hands and things didn't work properly. There is only one thermostat for a two story house which won't allow you to keep the whole house at a comfortable temperature. The pictures of the house make it appear nicer than it is. "Designer Furniture" includes old sofas with slipcovers and very average or below average furnishings that you would expect to find at a thrift store. The house is over-priced for the location, size and decor. The housekeeper was cleaning the house upon arrival. When told that the BBQ didn't work, the housekeeper was unable to fix it. If all this were not enough, the owners charged an exorbitant "security deposit" three times greater than any deposit I have been asked to place on a rental property in the past and far greater than the amount recommended by HomeAway in their owner's guidelines. There is no mention of security deposits in their rental agreement or procedure for returning them. In my experience, security deposits are a fraction of what they charged and all the responsible property owners that we have stayed with in the past have returned our deposits immediately after the stay. It has been almost 3 weeks, and she has not provided us any information on the return of our money or any explanation for why she is holding it except to say that the house was "messed badly". Really? 4 people were in your house for less than 24 hours and the kitchen was cleaned prior to departure and the house was so messy that the ample cleaning fee didn't cover the cleaning?
This was an absolutely terrible experience, stay away from this property!
This place is great for anybody who has a large group! The two houses made it so everyone could fit and sleep comfortably. Lake Berryessa isn't too far away and that's what we did during the day. The lamas/alpacas were very cute and everyone had a good time going out to the front and watching them. The property owners were very friendly and were very accommodating. I would definitely recommend this place!
My husband and I decided we wanted to get married on a farm, in front of a barn, and Bin and Lawrence's place was the perfect spot for that occasion. As soon as we pulled into the long driveway, we knew this was going to be the perfect place for our wedding. Right from the beginning, Bin graciously came out to meet with us at her beautiful property to show us around. She even worked with our wedding coordinator and was super accommodating to our needs. Bin was very responsive anytime we had a question or concern, and she was instrumental in making sure the farm was ready for our event.
The property was exactly as described. It sits a huge piece of land with two good-sized houses nestled into the hillside. My husband and I, along with my parents, stayed in the two houses on the property and they were well-stocked with all the amenities we needed. Each house was clean and comfortable, had washer/dryer, internet, plenty of bedrooms and beautiful views. The feeling I had sitting on the front porch of the front house at dusk, surrounded by the quiet hillsides and beautiful lush greenery was a feeling I can't describe. We didn't want to leave.
Regarding our wedding, we got so much positive feedback on the venue location! We are still hearing from our guests that it was the best wedding they have ever been to.
I would absolutely recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a rustic, romantic setting for their wedding, or even those looking for a peaceful weekend surrounded by breathtaking views. It really has it all!
Thank you Bin and Lawrence for sharing with us your beautiful farm! We can't wait to come back soon with our friends and family!
