Staying here was a joy! I love the feel of the place - the natural earthy materials & tones really put me at ease. Bonnie made us feel welcome from the moment we parked our cars, and made amazing breakfasts for us each morning (the coffee cake was AMAZING). It's the perfect place for a getaway.
I recently stayed here for a weekend as part of a small group retreat. Everything about the experience was outstanding. Beautiful Spanish style architecture and decor, very comfy luxurious bed, spa style bathroom in the upstairs master, fabulous gourmet breakfast and incredible views from every window. The owner is a great host and tequila expert. She offers tequila tastings as part of the villa experience. Highly, highly recommended!
This "Santa Fe Style" B&B is absolutely awe-inspiring! Located on a private 15-acre forested meadow, it is completely private, quiet, beautiful, stylishly furnished, and very comfortable. So private, there are no houses or any other buildings anywhere within sight! Only nature, birds, trees, and clear skies! Bonnie, the hostess, is very knowledgeable and pleasantly helpful, not to mention a fabulous chef who prepares and serves your breakfast and coffee! Did I mention the tequila tasting? (Another treat you won't find anywhere else!) I honestly can't say enough about this place!
How can I put into words the magic of Villa Agave? Remote, unique, charming, detailed, stunning, and bright—it was absolute perfection. The owner Bonnie, was responsive and knowledgeable, and went out of her way to make sure we had a great time. Prior to our arrival we inquired about things to do in the area, as we were spending the weekend celebrating a bachelorette party with 9 ladies. She personally recommended wineries and river spots less than 5 miles from the Villa that were perfect for our group and rounded out the weekend to be a great amount of enjoying local attractions and spending time at the Villa. Upon arrival we had our temperature checked, and you could tell the house had been cleaned and sanitized, which made us all feel a little more comfortable. The details that were put in our stay truly made us feel like we were at an exotic resort. We enjoyed a fantastic tequila tasting, getting to taste different types of tequilas and learning about the regions which they come, it was like nothing we’d ever experienced and a highlight of one of the gracious amenities. The villa itself is stunning. Large and spacious enough that it didn’t feel like we were on top of each other, but quaint enough where we felt like we could make it our “home” for the weekend. The beds were super comfortable and the rooms were all uniquely decorated, even named after different types of tequilas! Every room had a view of the beautiful property, and the sound of the fountain in the courtyard was enough to lull you to sleep at night. Everyone in our group had enough space to sleep comfortably, utilizing the pull out trundle in the master as well as in the tequila bar. The location was perfect, it felt remote because the property is so large and secluded, but we were only a 10 minute drive from wineries, restaurants and the American River. I highly recommend the Villa Agave for anyone looking for a quick get away or an extended stay, as it is easy to make this place feel like your eccentric home away from home!…
