About Owner / Property Manager

We are Dana and Marsha Merrill. We are committed to Paso Robles and the many generations before us in our family that were and are Paso Robins. We absolutely love to travel and find similar and special attributes here in Paso Robles that remind us of places we have visited around the world. We hope that you have the opportunity to visit and experience the charming place that we call home.

Why Owner / Property Manager chose Paso Robles

This property holds a special place in our hearts. It was in this home that we raised our family and created memories to last a life time! Recently we have relocated our residence further out in the beautiful country side. Most days you can find us working at our family business, Pomar Junction Winery and keeping up with our wonderful grandchildren! We are thrilled to extend our home to you with the hope that it will bring you an opportunity to relax and enjoy your family and friends in a unique and special place we call La Hacienda del Paso de los Robles.

What makes this house unique

Location, Location, Location is what first grabs your attention. Located on five country style acres only a couple miles from shopping, restaurants, gas and freeway and yet completely private and peaceful and one story! The entire home is one level and extremely spacious with multiple living and family room areas. Five large bedrooms, a studio/recreation area that functions as it's own suite and bedroom as well as several areas to get cozy on couches and relax in wine country. This home is a perfect get a way for multiple families with a wide variety of ages. Everyone can be comfortable and participate which is what it is all about!

Guestbook comments from the owner

How five couples planned a last minute retreat to Wine Country, we don't know, but we do know it could not have been more perfect!!!! Christie, the Property Manager, picked us up some groceries, got us checked in early and arranged a complimentary private tasting at the family vineyard, Pomar Juction Winery within hours. To say the hacienda is a magnificent home is an understatement. Everything was immaculate and just beautiful. The rooms and walk in closets were large and lovely and the home itself... you can get lost in and yet still so cozy comfortable. We are so glad that spent a few hours a day wine tasting and left the rest of the afternoons to enjoy the property and the views. We counted 6 deer, several bunnies, too many quail to count and an owl in the large oak that made us hoot! We all could have walked that property and sat around the fire pit for days! There is not question we will be back sooner than later. You can't imagine what you're missing if you miss our on this home! Thank you.

Family gathering

  • 5 of 5

We had a family gathering at this lovely home and it was wonderful. The house was comfortable and spacious. It accommodated our group of 11 with room to spare. We enjoyed cooking a meal in the beautiful kitchen and took advantage of the spa. We could have spent more time just enjoying the house and property but we were there to do some wine tasting. Friday evening was spent in Tin City enjoying some local breweries and Saturday was wine tasting. The location of the house was perfect for these activities. This house will definitely go on our short list of places to revisit. Thank you so much Christy ( property manger) for you prompt responses to our requests, you were a pleasure to work with.

Perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

Last year, my wife and I got married in Paso Robles; and we rented this property along with some close friends, for that occasion. Besides being so close to the wineries, the house was the right size for us; and had the right amenities. We enjoyed sitting out in the back patio, or by the pool; and enjoyed having a bbq watching the sunset. The house is very comfortable and well equipped, and offers a high level of privacy from the neighbors. We really enjoyed our stay, and look forward to coming back at a future time.

Mom's Birthday and Welcome Home Military Celebration

  • 5 of 5

My family loved this house. We have rented through VRBO before and have not been disappointed with our choices. We especially pay attention to the reviews and this is why my review gives this house 5 stars. First - working with Christie the manager was wonderful.

She replied to my emails, addressed my concerns and was available the week we rented for any problems we might have encountered. We did not have any !

I agree with one of the reviewers that the pictures do not do the house justice.

It is beautiful, from the surroundings, to the outdoor entertainment area and to the cozy warm feeling of the inside. Oh, and did I mention that the house is huge! We lost our way a few times but never was disappointed in the cleanliness or comfort. The Kitchen had every utensil and gadget you could hope for. We enjoyed our family meals and game playing in the dining room which is very spacious.

Because the pool is covered and the temperature in the afternoon reached 75 we were able to swim ( in late December) and this helped to tire out our 4 year old. We had deer visit us a few mornings as we were eating breakfast and the kids were thrilled.

The City of Paso Robles is a cool town to hang out - nice shops , great coffee.

A big thank you to Marsha and Dale for lending us their family estate.

We had a wonderful time.

Amazing property with everything you could possibly want

  • 5 of 5

You know those places that you visit and never want to leave? This is definitely one of those truly amazing experiences. The hacienda has everything and then some. All the rooms are spacious, the kitchen is a chef and hosts dream. The property is just breathtaking and we can't wait to return for a longer stay. The owners and property manager have created an oasis, the attention to detail is apparent throughout. Little notes to help you get acquainted with everything, toiletries in all the bathrooms, an abundance of pool towels and toys, bathroom towels, kitchen is fully equipped Highlights for our family are to many to list, the pool, resting underneath the majestic oak trees, the old Santa Margarita BBQ, catching a glimpse of the cottontail bunnies in the front garden, the beautiful and unique furnishings, art work and how clean the whole house is. Thank you for a lovely weekend.

Family gathering for wedding

  • 5 of 5

Everyone loved this property. We enjoyed the swimming pool and hot tub. This is the first time I have used VRBO and its the way to go! It was so nice that pool towels were provided as well as all the other amenities. We saw a baby lamb one day old down the hill and bunnies on the lawn early in the am. I highly recommend this property.

Located on the Central Coast, Paso Robles is a vacation destination! Rolling hills decorated with 100 year old oak trees and breath taking vineyards for miles...Ahhhh! It's the New Napa gone slightly cowboy chic with it's Mediterranean climate and award winning restaurants and boutique shopping with less than a five minute drive to our downtown square! Paso is booming with festivals, art, agriculture, concerts and exploration. The historic downtown square is "Walton-esq" with its small town traditional architecture and local ware for sale. You can wine taste, olive oil taste, sample honey, visit the lavender farm, select local produce at Farmers Market on Tuesdays and Saturdays and stroll leisurely while taking in the fresh air and charm! This property is beautifully unique in that it is close to town yet sits quietly on five acres in the country.
