Why Neil Kay chose Windsor

This property was originally built by a Swiss-Italian stone mason - hence the massive stone pool and other remnants of his design. We extensively renovated the property while keeping true to his vision.

What makes this villa unique

Upon enterring Villa Terra Bella you will imediately feel relaxed and like you enterred another world. Palm trees, vineyard, stone and Italian architecture create a feeling of old world hollywood luxury. Experience the life at a multimillion dollar wine country property at an affordable price!

The property has three unique living spaces to allow privacy and also options for diverse groups.

The hobby vineyard was donated to Windsor Vineyard Academy in 2010. The vines are over 100 years old and the wine is superb! Guests can purchase bottles of the estate old vine zinfandel wine and proceeds go to the school.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Darlene…My sister, Florine, and myself wish to thank you for a most lovely ’stay’ at your Villa Terra Bella property. The main house is outstanding as well as the cozy cottage. We were delighted as there was so much space and bedrooms for everyone. Our children and grandchildren (and my sister and myself) had a very- very memorable vacation together. The pool, of course, was just lovely and the area large enough that all could enjoy.

We had a fabulous 2 days at your ‘Villa’…the lovely black bottom swimming pool was my favorite place to be and enjoyed the spaciousness of the main house. The grandchildren loved the spa. The grandchildren were completely entertained and so were the adults.

Thank you for the Windsor Jaguar Zinfandel…I think the wine was produced from your vineyard and will look forward to having dinner with my sister and tasting the old vine wine. Also, the bouquet of flowers were glorious…it was such a large arrangement and looked as fresh when we left. We left it at the Villa for your next guests.

You were a delight to communicate with and we appreciated you introducing us to property before our helped situate all the families in the bedrooms. A memory for life for our family gathering.

Very nice tranquil setting, plenty of space!

  • 4 of 5

Rather quirky furnishings but plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms. Oddly, one of the two master suites could only be accessed through the other master suite, and only had a bath (with a non functional plug) and no shower! Kitchen pretty small for a house this size, with a single oven and a non functional toaster. TVs and internet service good. Good size sitting room with lots of seating and a good fireplace. Can seat 10+ easily round dining room table. Very good pool and hot tub facilities with lots of chairs and table outside with good barbecues. A treat for nature lovers, several sightings of great horned owls in trees at back of house! Close access to Safeway and Raleys (2 1/2 miles) also close to vineyards and good hikes In regional parks within 10 minute drive. Overall it worked very well for us for a family get together of 12 people !

A Perfect Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for my son's wedding and stayed at the beautiful Villa Terra Bella with new in laws and other family members. It was the perfect set up for a large crowd. The pool was amazing and the way the house is set up gave people enough privacy with lots of family gathering in the kitchen. We thought the location was just so easy to hit the wineries and not far from our wedding venues. Just can not say enough nice things about the house, about the ease of which we communicated with Darlene. Villa Terra Bella we will try our hardest to come back again.

Good as it gets!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a four day adult weekend at Villa Terra Bella. The weekend was fantastic. Great property, great location, endless amenities. This property and location speaks for itself, so I must emphasize what a pleasure it was working with Darlene to plan our weekend. She is very professional, accommodating and reliable. She is also readily available at all times, and was prompt to respond to any and all of our needs. Let me also note that I worked off of her list of recommendations available on her website. We arranged for Robert Negoesco of Eli Grace Catering to prepare a private dinner in the Villa one evening. He much like Darlene was great to work with, prompt, efficient, precise and reliable. He designed and executed the perfect family style dinner party for eight people that we enjoyed from beginning to end.

May I also point out that the fresh flowers and bottle of wine on the dining room table was a very nice touch to welcome us to the property. I highly recommend Villa Terra Bella, Darlene and her associates. Thank you for everything, I hope to return soon!

Words cannot describe how perfect

  • 5 of 5

Villa Terra Bella was the perfect location for our small, intimate wedding and week long stay with our best friends. I arranged everything sight unseen from Ohio through Darlene, the home owner, and the wonderful wedding planner she recommended, Kathy of Coppedge House Weddings & Events (highly recommend!!). This location, our wedding day, and the entire week could not have been more perfect. Everything exceeded our expectations. Darlene was so helpful to me throughout the six months of planning. She really did much more than rent her home to us. Our photographer, Deanna of Deanna Kay Photography, also did an amazing job.

First of all the main house and cottage were just perfect for us and our guests. We spent most of our time sight seeing during the day and then we spent our evenings around the large dining table inside or outside around the pool. The outside was fantastic with the outdoor kitchen, heat lamps, lighting, radio/speaker system, hot tub, large table and plenty of seating. This is where you want to be at the end of the day!

There was plenty of room throughout the house, especially the large master bedroom in the back, which held all of us getting ready for our big day (makeup artist, photographer, friends). The patio off this master was also the perfect place for us to have a cup of coffee together each morning before joining the group (having its own Keurig machine, kcups, creamer, and cups was a really nice touch.) The other bedrooms were also lovely as was the cottage. We watched TV only one night and the living room was also perfect and comfy for a large group.

The property was just stunning. We stood in the center of the small vineyard to exchange our vows and this was even better than what we envisioned. We also purchased a case of the wine made here and it is very good! The landscaping, palm trees, and entire pool area were just gorgeous. It really is the perfect place to have your own little retreat yet be so close to Windsor Square, Healdsburg, several amazing local vineyards, and the highway. I highly recommend this very special place!

Perfect place for a large group

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place and so perfectly located. A couples long weekend get away for 12 adults and we had a blast. The hot tub and grill area allowed us to prepare and eat outdoors and then enjoy the hot tub. My friends and I visited for the Wine Road tour and I have to say, having a super nice place to come back to each night was a huge plus. Everyone had a great time and so enjoyed the house and cottage. We will definitely hope to stay here again. Darlene is so accommodating and always available should you need anything. Can't wait for another trip!
