Beautiful Places

Moonstone, Napa
The Bounty Hunter staff experienced a real treat this week.  We toured  two exclusive luxury villas in the Napa Valley and enjoyed a wine reception in a 32 foot high observation tower.  Partnering with BeatifulPlaces, a luxury villa rental and epicurean adventure company, our clients can now experience Wine Country in a whole new way.  Villas can be rented for as little as 3 nights or as many as 8 weeks, depending on the particular home.  We explored both the Zinfandel Wine Tower and Moonstone.

Moonstone is nestled on a 20 acre Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard, with nary a neighbor in sight.  This state of the art, ultra-modern villa rents for approximately $25,000/week, depending on the season and length of stay.  We walked around slowly, taking in all the amazing details, unable to decide which piece of the landscape we preferred: the pool, the rose garden surrounded by vines or the outside kitchen equipped with a grill and wood fire pizza oven.

We then traveled down Zinfandel Lane to the Wine Tower, a brand new 3 bedroom modern home directly across from Raymond Winery.  This home has a large open kitchen and living space with access from two different sliders out to a large garden area.  One direction takes you to the six-person hot tub, while the other takes you to the curved stairwell that leads to the wine tower.  Fifteen of us enjoyed the beautiful 360 degree views of Napa Valley while sipping some great Bounty Hunter wines and munching on some nifty nibbles.  This property would be perfect for entertaining guests – the WOW factor is off the charts.

We enjoyed ourselves and learned first hand of the high quality villas that BeautifulPlaces represents.  If you are coming to Napa Valley or Sonoma anytime soon, we can steer you straight to our friends over at BeautifulPlaces, where you have an opportunity to experience Wine Country like the locals.
