“Luxurious Tranquility - Must Experieance”
Reviewed 28 November 2017 for a stay in November 2017

I have traveled around the world and not experienced the beauty, attention to detail, breathtaking views, and more importantly our wonderful host Briana and Nic. The pictures don't do it justice, and for those of you who appreciate Architectural design I'm confident you will be impressed! From the welcome card and basket to the incredible amenities my wife and I were truly impressed. Briana arranged a couple's massage on the deck of the beautiful infinity pool with the waterfalls running and it was pure bliss. One thing is certain, Casa Bella Verde will be a destination we will visit again!

“Great place, great host.”
Reviewed 31 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The house is lovely, the view is spectacular, the pool is gorgeous. It is the perfect setting for a restful stay. We are very happy we brought all our food, since the last few miles of the road are unpaved and unlit, and we would not have wanted to tackle them in the dark. We bought our food at the Nugget in El Dorado Hills, on the way. (One tip: put your food in the frig before taking the tour of the house--there is a lot to see.)
The pool is not heated, so it was too cold to swim in October, but we enjoyed floating on the inflatable chairs that were provided, and just sitting by the infinity pool was so restful.
Briana was a perfect hostess (Nick was away when we were there). She gave us complete privacy, but was only a text message away.

Hi Steven,
We so enjoyed having you and your lovely wife Georganne. You were both lovely. :o) I just wanted to clarify that the country gravel road that you drove on to get up here is actually only half a mile from the main road to the doorstep of Casa Bella Verde. It is only a 4-5 minute drive. I just wanted to clarify so future guests would get accurate distances. Thank you so much again for staying with us! We are so happy you enjoyed your stay. :o)

“Perfect”
Reviewed 24 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015


Our stay at Briana and Nick's retreat was unbelievable. The space was large and gorgeous yet perfectly intimate. The view speaks for its self. We planned to come and go all weekend but ended up being glued to this little oasis in the mountains. The infinity pool overlooking the incredible scenery is breathtaking. This view is also seen from your own private guest house which is something straight out of a celebrity dream home show. The guest house has all the amenities you could ever want, all with the beautiful personalized touch of it's lovely owners. On top of all these qualities, Briana and Nick's warmer-than-family hospitality makes Casa Bella Verde a dream getaway. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a secluded and intimate retreat while feeling like royalty for a day. Thank you so much to the owners for making our romantic weekend so special. We will definitely never forget our time and be back to Casa Bella Verde again some day soon.

“There's one word for this place: paradise!”

Does drinking margaritas under the stars in front of a roaring fireplace with something tasty sizzling on the BBQ sound good? How about gazing out from your secluded terrace across a breath-taking vista while hummingbirds dart among the lavender? Or working up a sweat in your private gym before a refreshing dip in the infinity pool and maybe a well-earned nap in your king-size Heavenly Bed?

Well, to me it sounds like heaven on earth… AKA Casa Bella Verde.

My (then) fiancé and I combed Airbnb for the perfect honeymoon destination. We’ve both been lucky enough visit some nice places on our travels and, for a once-in-a-lifetime trip like our honeymoon, we were always going to be a tough crowd. Expectations were sky-high as we turned off the main road and started up the private drive towards CBV. What we found took our breaths away. From our first glimpse, we knew neither of us had ever stayed in a more breathtaking place.

You’ve seen the pictures and read the reviews but nothing can prepare you for how spectacular CBV really is. From its location to the accommodation, the facilities and hosts Briana and Nick, the entire experience is simply delightful.

Spacious, luxuriously appointed, completely private accommodation? Check. Infinity pool overlooking mountains? Check. Outdoor kitchen and poolside fireplace, complete with sofa for starlight lounging? Check.

The cherries on top of this delicious confection are CBV’s hosts. From the moment we arrived, Briana and Nick made us feel completely welcome and pampered, while at the same time letting us know our privacy was paramount. The couple live on site (CBV is their self-built dream home) but their sensitivity and discretion mean anyone wanting to do a Greta Garbo and be alone will be well catered for. However, if you’re open to more interaction, you’ll discover your hosts are the loveliest people you could wish to meet.

Even before we arrived (it took about 2.5 hours of very laid-back driving from SFO) we were already texting with Briana and had received a lunch recommendation for locals-only taquería en route, which was super tasty and excellent value. Briana made it very clear that no question or request was too small and that they were there to make our holiday absolutely perfect. CBV gave us the honeymoon of our dreams with the unexpected bonus of amazing new friends!

On a practical level, CBV’s secluded location means having a car is a must. It’s a scenic 25 minute drive down the hill into town, where you’ll find great restaurants and top-quality grocery shopping. The area also boasts some outstanding wineries, hiking and white water rafting, although I have to admit we couldn’t bear to leave CBV long enough to check out these other attractions. Next time! Oh yes, there will be a next time.

It was hard not to feel very sad leaving this amazing place. It’s a true paradise. If you’re able to, book CBV right now… before we beat you to it!

“An Unforgettable Experience”
Reviewed 24 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

From the moment we booked the reservation to the morning we had to leave, our experience at Casa Bella Verde was truly remarkable. Briana's attentiveness to detail and commitment to serving the needs of her guests far surpasses that of any hotel/resort that I have ever stayed. This loving atmosphere, combined with one of the most beautiful and technologically advanced homes I have ever been in, made for an unforgettable experience. We will certainly be returning in the future :)
