    I came to Murphy’s to celebrate my birthday with my friends and we had an amazing time. I was greeted by Darrel upon arrival. He was very nice and humbling! He gave me a tour of the house and property as soon as I arrived. The house was beautiful and it was just a short walk right to downtown. We never had to drive. The house was very clean, and the hot tub was a great addition to our fun. The winery is right next to the house (30 second stroll down the driveway). I can’t wait to return! Thank you so much Darrel and Janet.

    Our holiday at the Villa could not have been better! This charming property is both rustic and modern. Love the wine barrels that mark the driveway! The Villa is in an amazing setting with the wine tasting room literally just steps away. Having a pool to chill out and a hot tub to watch the stars at night was wonderful. The kitchen is fabulous to cook in. It has everything you need to “throw together” some appetizers or cook up a gourmet meal. The great room is the perfect hang-out to eat, relax, or enjoy a glass (or two!) of wine with family and friends. The bedrooms are thoughtfully decorated, each one having its own ambience. The beds are inviting and comfortable, especially after a day of wandering and shopping downtown Murphys. The Villa is enchanting, clean, and very welcoming! We shall return!

    Janet and Darrell were very accommodating when we asked for a floor fan. They provide coffee and half and half as well as some snacks which was a nice touch. The place was great for our multigenerational family to stay. A full bath for each room was great for our group. A quick walk into the Main Street of Murphys. Definitely recommend!

    We have stayed before with the previous owners and have always enjoyed our stay. We weren’t at the house during the days, but it was nice to come back to AC and the kids enjoyed the pool and the hot tub at night. And of course we love how close it is to town and to pick up dinners when we didn’t want to cook.

    Bed Bugs

    1/5 Stayed Jul 28, 2021
    Submitted Aug 7, 2021

    We booked the stay to celebrate my husbands birthday. We spent a few days enjoying the pool/spa and loved the proximity to the town of Murphys. We noticed what we thought was rash develop on my 5 year old daughter the last night we were there. We rinsed her off real well and gave her some Benadryl to help with the itching. We got up early for check out and when we got home we realized she was covered all through her torso and her neck and she kept saying they all hurt. We took her to to the Doctor who advised what I thought was a rash were actually consistent with bed bug bites. At the time no one had any other signs and she informed me it would not be uncommon for them to only bite on one host. I immediately contacted Janet, the VRBO host who said she would look into. Later that night bites showed up on me all through my legs and stomach, I was so uncomfortable and so upset that my daughter had to experience this pain and itching with little we could do. In addition we had to wash everything multiple times that we had brought with us and are monitoring for signs if we have brought any home with us. I tried to resolve this issue with Janet who advised she was waiting to see if any other of the guest who stayed after us brought the issue to her. This is irresponsible and concerning for anyone who will be booking with her. She did inform a new bed had been ordered for the room and was awaiting a bed frame. Bed bugs don't just live in a mattress they can be located any where in the house, and a professional should be brought in. Not only has the lack of response to ensuring this would not happen to other guest, she has lacked any concern or empathy on the experience we have had. VRBO does not act on behalf of the traveler to resolve issues. This will be reported to the Health Department and also to the Better Business Bureau on the property it self and VRBO.

    I have been renting The Villa for the past 11 years from the previous owner. This is my first year renting with Janet and Darrel. I enjoyed meeting them both. Janet was very responsive when there was a minor issue with the pool. She has already made some welcome changes to the property and told me of plans for other changes which are much needed. I look forward to renting again next summer. This property is perfect for my needs. I invite a couple other friends and we each have our own bedroom and bathroom. The location is peaceful with the exception of the infrequent cars going up the hill alongside the house. We enjoy spending time around the pool reading and talking. The kitchen lends itself to multiple cooks at once and there is plenty of dining and lounging room for everyone. I love The Villa!

    We could not have been more satisfied. From start to finish the Villa did not disappoint. The home was well stocked with everything you could possibly need. So cute inside and out and was perfect for the whole family including our dogs. We would enjoy fun adventures during the day and come home to a soak in the pool, a little wine tasting at the winery and our walks into town for ice cream, meals, or shopping. If we didn’t eat out we enjoyed bbq outside and the views of the vineyard and nature. We will for sure be back as this was our favorite spot so far! Thank you Janet and Darryl for the experience and we will be back! The Inmans

We loved that the location gave us some privacy as the young ones could enjoy the outdoors without bothering anyone!! The pool and hot tub were a hit, but for me it was Val du Vino.

Location is fantastic, private with space to explore and only a short walk to downtown Murphys which is a beautiful mix of historic gold rush buildings, shops, tasting rooms, and resteraunts.

    So we stayed here for my birthday. It was close to Murphy’s only like a two minute walk to downtown Murphy’s. We had all our needs met. Honestly don’t need to bring much just food this place is fully stocked and loaded the kitchen is huge and there’s plenty of area to sit we had a total of 10 people and it accommodated all of us with no problems. I wish the weather was warmer because we would’ve definitely indulged in the pool. We definitely use the hot tub which was wonderful. The gas fireplace kept the house cozy. And with three full bathrooms there were never an issue with any of us having to wait to use the restroom. The owners were receptive to messages and remedied any issue we had it right away. Honestly will probably never stay anywhere else in Murphy’s again. We love this place and definitely will be back to partake in that lovely pool. By the way there’s a place to play basketball. If we had had more time we definitely would have utilize that as well. The owners winery is only a few steps down the hill great wine great company definitely again we will be back!!! ❤️

    the property worked for us, except while the kitchen and bathrooms were clean, the linens are so old and worn out that it gave the impression of not being clean. Also no bed was comfortable, only the futon the floor. The master bathroom really needs work. The toilet runs forever, so don't flush at night.

    This was a fantastic find. Send a thank you the day we arrived. Yes the pool is small but enough when there’s town just a couple minutes walking distance away. Near the main road but had no trouble sleeping through it after nightly dancing and hit tub enjoyment on site. We never needed to drive anywhere and the most memorable tasting was with Jeanine right next door. We’re looking forward to a winter stay and enjoying the hot tub and fireplace.

    Simple - Clean - Great Location !! We stayed here to take day trips to visit Yosemite and Big Tree Forest - on our way to Lake Tahoe. It was the perfect location - driving in from San Francisco we arrived late on Monday and instructions were perfect for entry into the home. We walked into Town and went to Murphy's Grill for wonderful dinner outside. The next day toured & hiked at Yosemite, arriving home to walked into town for a perfect diner @ Rob's Place - absolutely delicious. This little gem of a home - had lots of space, simple furnishings, and comfortable beds. We didn't use the hot tub or pool, or even cook - BUT - there was a to- die-for Dacor double/stove oven combination!! This home would be perfect for a family gathering - with extended family, lots of room to cook! Best part was the - easy walk to the town of Murphy - didn't realize when we booked it most of the town closes early (wine tasting done by 5:00) and many establishments close early on Monday & Tuesday.

    Our family thoroughly enjoyed a few days at the Villa. The location was perfect - at the end of the main street in Murphys allowing us to walk to coffee, etc and then come back to a quiet, large property. The kitchen was well equipped so we cooked our own breakfast each morning and could keep snacks on hand. A highlight for us was the pool - which is bigger then it looks in the photo and really great for cooling off (it's deep-so not appropriate for small children - it's not a wading pool). The owners even graciously sent back my wife's pants which she had left behind!

    All of us enjoyed our week in this house. While it was old, everything worked well and it had been well-maintained. It was spacious so we could have meals together. The pool and hot tub were used and we were able to spend a lot of time outside. The location was perfect because we could walk downtown and do wine tasting without having to worry about driving back. We were able to get to Yosemite on 2 separate days and to Mono Lake on one of them. We told Jeannine about the squeaky faucets in the master BR but they worked OK. The only thing I wished there were more of was some small glasses. We did not always need big ones and they took up much more space in the dishwasher - not a big deal but I thought I'd mention it. There were plenty of pots and pans! All in all we thought this was a great vacation house in a great location. Thank you!

    This is a large and beautiful home just a short walk from the main tourist and winery area of Murphys. The house is delightful and the kitchen is to die for (8 burners and 2 big ovens). You will be staying on the grounds of a winery, with views of the vineyards. We would love to return! Great spot for wine lovers, cooks (and be sure to visit The Spice Tin in town) and California history buffs.

    This was our second stay at this rental. We especially like the fact that there are 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. Although we used the A/C during the hot August days, we only needed to open the windows at night for natural cool air. It was so neat to hear the cows mooing nearby! Nice, large kitchen with lots of counter space. Another major perk is that you are walking distance to the shops and restaurants. We also appreciated that we could bring our two small dogs with us. The owners are very generous. I would highly recommend this rental.

    We knew after meeting and talking to Jeannine at the winery that we had to rent the villa. My family has a teeny home off Murphys Grade Road but it's really only good for hosting a few people. Luckily the perfect occasion for renting the Villa presented itself a week later, and the weekend we were looking at had magically had a cancellation so we were able to swoop in and reserve it. Beyond the perfect location for enjoying wine tasting in Murphys (startijng with some of the most delicious right out the door at Val du Vino), the Villa was so comfortable for our group. We had four adults and 4 children, so the large kitchen and multiple dining area options were key and we had lots of fun preparing meals together in the beautiful kitchen. And on the night when we were all too tired to cook, we took a short walk to Firewood where there's a nice low-key vibe and options for hungry folks big and small. We spent an entire day with the kids in the pool, which was something we were so grateful for as the temperature was well over a 100 that weekend. Although it's small, it was perfect for our young crew (age ranges 18 months - 9 years old). All of the bedrooms were comfortable and having three full bathrooms was great (since we were a household of girls-only for the weekend). While we love our little Murphys house, I will definitely be renting the Villa again in the future. Especially since my little nieces told me over and over how much they loved our weekend together. Such a treat!

    The Villa at the Winery has a great location for visiting Murphys and Calaveras Big Trees. We walked into town for shopping, dinner, wine tasting, and cocktails. We also walked to Ironstone Winery and Indian Rock Winery for picnics and wine tasting. We drove to Mercer Caverns for a fun and interesting cave tour, and we drove to Calaveras Big Trees State Park for a day of hiking and picnicking. It was great to be so close to town, but our evenings in were quiet and relaxing. The villa slept 6 comfortably in the 3 bedrooms, and we had 2 on the couch and futon. The 3 bathrooms were clean and worked out great for 8 people. The kitchen, dining, and family rooms were spacious and comfortable for our group.

    This was our second stay at The Villa. We enjoyed it just as much as the first, and have already reserved a third stay later this year. We are grandparents, and hosted our daughter son-in-law and two young grandchildren. The place is clean and well kept. The owners are delightful and helpful. The three bedrooms and three bathrooms are perfect for our needs, and the floor and furnishings are well-suited to having two small ones running about with minimal worry about hurting themselves or breaking anything. The kitchen is truly professional grade with a full complement of really first class cookware, big side-by-side fridge-freezer, toaster, blender, microwave, two large ovens and eight (!) gas stovetop burners I love to cook, and found the kitchen a joy to work in. Everything worked, with the exception of the fridge ice maker (which may simply have been turned off). There is a very good large-size flatscreen TV on which we watched the Super Bowl. On both our stays we found the place thoughtfully stocked with the basic necessities -- good towels and sheets, cloth kitchen towels, a roll of paper towels, toilet paper, and even shower gel and hand soap in the bathrooms. The Wi-Fi signal was too weak in the house for our laptops to pick up. but if one strolls a few steps down to the porch of the winery, the signal is excellent. Wish we could be here in the hot summer weather to enjoy the pool. The only additional comment I would have for prospective renters is: Don't mess this place up! We are coming back and we want it to be as nice next time as we left it this time!

    Our stay at the Villa in Murphys was a wonderful experience. We came into town for a wine tasting weekend and were not disappointed. The Villa was clean, comfortable, welcoming, within walking distance to town and well equipped for a group that enjoys cooking and entertaining. We had 10 people for dinner and there was plenty of room for all around the large dining table. The weather was fabulous and we spent a great deal of time outside just relaxing by the pool. The best part is that the owners of the villa own the winery next door and they produce wonderful wines. We highly recommend this vacation rental to all, and we hope to be returning just as soon as time will allow, as we all joined their wine club and look forward to attending one of wine club events. Please put the Villa in Murphys on your list.

    Thanks to the Val du Vino Winery Owners for the perfect Villa (home-away-from-home) experience! Fabulous venue for intimate celebrations and just steps from great wine tasting and Historic Downtown Murphys! The Villa is charming, warm, comfortable, fully equipped, in a country setting yet close to all of life's sweet pleasures! The Villa Kitchen is a dream but no need to cook with amazing restaurants such as Grounds, Magnolia Cafe, Firewood, and more...don't forget Aria Bakery for a slice of heaven on earth!

    The house was perfect for our event. The bedrooms were all nicely furnished as were the baths. The kitchen was killer with an enormous range and lots counter space. You have to walk down to the winery to make the internet access work - ~ 100 ft The main street and wineries are all just a few steps away We enjoyed it a lot. I would go back there again. Highly recommended.

    The Villa is Fabulous!!

    I am a wine club member at Val Du Vino and have rented the Villa for the past two years for a week at a time for a womens' getaway. It is perfect for a group of people with three bedrooms and three full bathrooms. The kitchen is set up for gourmet cooks. There is everything you could possibly want. The pool is wonderful on hot summer days. The winery, which is right down the hill, hosts the farmer's market on Thursday evenings with a great gourmet bbq dinner by Jeannine at a very good price. So we can get all the produce we need for the week and dinner too! The house is within walking distance of everything in town. Jeannine and Jonathon are wonderful hosts...not to mention producers of some of the finest wine in the area!!

    Where do you start? Jeannine and Jonathan are absolutely wonderful hosts and their rental is both charming and well cared for. It truly is a home away from home. Each room is nicely decorated and the kitchen is extraordinary, fully equipped with everything you could need and quality appliances. The fact that their winery is right next door is an added bonus!

    Amazing trip, thank you!

    Thank you so much for allowing us to stay at your wonderful Villa. There were 6 adults in our party and with three full bathrooms & bedrooms there was plenty of room for everyone. The kitchen is WONDERFUL. We arrived Friday and didn't leave until Monday and only ate out for one meal becuase of that great stove. The decks and yard around the property are lovely and it's such a quick walk dowtown and as a bonus your fabulous tasting room is only steps away. Thank you again for allowing us to rent your home, it was perfect!

    What a wonderful experience. We'd never been to Murphys before and now we know we'll be going back again and again. The house, owners, wine, and town are all wonderful for a multi-couple vacation weekend. The house is well appointed, clean, comfortable, and a quick walk from everything you need downtown. The wines in the Murphys tasting rooms are fantastic and affordable. I can't imagine needing or wanting to go back to Napa or Sonoma. The property is suppose to have internet access but we couldn't get it to work. We really didn't need it so we didn't even bother mentioning it to the owners. If you haven't been to Murphys, definately go but don't steal this fantastic house on the weekends I want to be there! ;-) Don't miss Val du Vino winery's tasting room. The petite syrah is lovely!
