The estate is available for weddings and events. Event pricing is available upon request.
There is an estate manager on site. They assist with directions to the estate. Can act as a concierge, or help with any questions or concerns. They can also recommend local restaurants, wine tasting rooms, wine retailers, etc.
There is a 0.5-mile country road that leads to the estate. An SUV is recommended during the dry season (two-wheel-drive vehicles are fine if you drive slow). A four-wheel-drive vehicle is recommended during the rainy season.
The property is a 20-minute drive from Pacific Coast Highway and a 30-minute drive from the 101 Ventura Freeway.
We had a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday. Lots of activities and the home was beautiful and spacious. Already planning for next year.
This place was AMAZING! We had our wedding here at the end of April 2017, but also stayed for a few days - so whether you're looking for an incredible vaca spot or a spectacular event venue, read on:
The views are breathtaking.
The house is beautiful.
Marlon, the groundskeeper, is a rockstar! Whatever you need, whatever you didn't realize you needed, he's got you covered. He became a second coordinator in the week leading up to our wedding, and was completely hands-on the day of.
The owners are also very attentive. There were some staffing changes over the course of the year between when we booked and our wedding - and they stepped in to keep the communication going until the new staff was up to speed. It's the little things like good, clear communication that make this a great event venue.
If you're a dog lover - there is an adorable and SUPER FRIENDLY Rotweiller named Chief on site. I LOVE this guy! He just wants to lean on you and snuggle. (If you don't love dogs, Marlon can keep him confined during your stay, but please love dogs - Chief is the sweetest!)
It is challenging to get to, but if you take the recommended directions (which is to take McReynolds - NOT Baller) and you drive slowly, it's really not a problem. We drove it in daylight and dark. We drove it in a moving truck, small SUV, and a sports car - all did just fine. Don't let a dirt road scare you away. Trust me - it's worth it when you get to the top!
It does get rather buggy - at least it did at the end of April after a rainy winter, but we didn't notice (m)any bugs during any of our walk-throughs throughout the year prior.
We had 50 guests and in hindsight, we could have easily had 75 and still felt cozy and intimate in that setting. But if you want more, you can definitely fit more.
Ultimately, this site is a see-it-to-believe-it kind of place. Pictures just don't do it justice. The sights, the smells... it's everything.
The morning before we left, we made some coffee, hung out on the patio overlooking the canyon and ocean. The breeze was cool, the sun was warm... it was quiet, serene... it was perfect.
Great getaway location with vey helpful staff!
Five rooms with a view and no neighbors is a tough find in LA. We all had a great time. Our event was my 50th birthday and I dont think I could have found a better place. Its a big house which allowed us all to either hangout together or go to another area for some quite time. but there wasn't much of that! Im a chef and the house had plenty of amenities to to cook just about anything. While we couldn't use open fire bbq's, the kitchen had enough horsepower for me and 5 other chef friends. Tim and Don were great. Don't sweat the dogs, they were chill once everyone settled in.
This home served as a vacation getaway for my husband and I, a home for our wedding party to stay and enjoy, and the magical, unforgettable venue for our wedding. We could not have dreamt up a place like this or people like Don, Edwina, and Tim. We had already felt like we'd escaped from reality after the relaxing and scenic mountain drive, and, when we arrived to the house, it was meticulously clean and ready for us, right down to classical music playing and fresh flowers set out. The grounds looked beautiful. The vines were full and everything smelled so fresh; especially when paired with the expansive ocean view!
The estate is clearly magical, and in communicating with Don and Edwina, the owners, and Tim, the manager, throughout the planning and the wedding weekend, we just felt more and more confident in our experience. Tim was extremely helpful and considerate throughout our entire stay. He gladly answered all questions about the house, the estate, and things to do in the area, and all of our wedding guests raved about his hospitality.
Overall, we wish we never had to leave! We cannot wait for our next visit, whether it is just the two of us, a family stay, or an anniversary celebration with the wedding party, we know it will be great. Last but not least, be sure to try a bottle of the wine, as it is yet another aspect of the estate that will captivate you! We had the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon, and it became a staple at our rehearsal dinner. Before we checked out, we'd decided to pick up a few extra bottles for ourselves, and a couple bottles of their 2009 and 2011...we do not regret it!!
We simply can't say enough good things about Don and Edwina and our stay at this beautiful house. Don and Edwina were wonderful. They were friendly, accommodating, responsive, and went above and beyond. We rented the property for a week in October of 2014. The house / property not only served as a residence for us (bride/groom) and 10 family members, but also hosted our rehearsal dinner, wedding ceremony, and reception (about 100 guests). It was the PERFECT all-inclusive wedding location. The house is AMAZING, and you can't beat the view. It is breathtaking - our guests continue to rave about its beauty and uniqueness. The details of the house, the view, and the vineyard made for stunning wedding photos. The house is quite perfect for any sort of get together or getaway (reunions, weddings, vacations) with lots of room and a private and remote location. We can't imagine having been married anywhere else and we can't thank Don and Edwina enough for the part they played in our special day.
