Guest access

Guests have access to ten acres of open expansive greenery with olive trees, vineyards and mountains surrounding the entire property. There is a quiet walking path where ceremonies are performed by the willow tree! There is a hot tub and pool. It is unbearable to place coverings on the windows but enough people are wanting this so the request is being met with RH upscale window coverings! We are adding a theatre room/library. There is high speed Wifi access at all times.

Interaction with guests

I give my guests the space and privacy they demand when enjoying this oasis masterpiece. However, I am constantly available by email or phone to keep guests informed of the area and the particulars of the house. The time and the vacation belongs to guests.

My family, friends, and I had an AMAZING stay at Makiiva Estate celebrating my birthday. Janet was a wonderful host, who made our stay so enjoyable. She was extremely communicative and offered tons of advice on activities, places to eat, etc. She even left us a bottle of wine, muffins, and even a personalized card with a very sweet note. The house was beautiful. We had plenty of room for everyone, and the many beds and bedrooms made it easy for everyone to have their own space. Our group was made up of adults and one child aged 6. The house was extremely family friendly, but had plenty of amenities that would work for just adults. The pool was simply gorgeous, the property was spectacular. The house has a hot tub that is one of the best I've seen. I honestly do not have enough space to list out all the great things about Janet's property. We would love to rent the property again in the future. Thank you Jan!!

Our group of six stayed here for New Years Eve and had a wonderful stay. Jan was an excellent hostess, and was great about communicating with us prior to our stay, and checking to make sure everything was adequate during our stay. The house was spacious, clean, and perfect for the six of us. Jan offered recommendations on local wineries and restaurants which we took advantage of and were not disappointed. We would definitely come back!

My friends and I had an amazing stay at Makiivka! The farm truly is a quiet oasis and we loved the gorgeous surrounding area. Lakeport is so cute and the fall colors were beautiful. The house is stocked with everything you could need, and Janet was very communicative and responsive and was kind enough to even leave us wine and chocolate. We would definitely recommend for a weekend getaway, and we hope to come back soon!

I loved this house. Jan was very accommodating and super sweet. She had it all cleaned and welcoming when we arrived. We also last minute decided to come the day before and Jan had it all set. I appreciate all her hard work. I had the best time especially by the pool. I 100% recommend staying here.

What a beautiful estate! My bachelorette group had the best weekend - the property was gorgeous, the pool and hot tub were relaxing, the house was clean, and the location was near a bunch of wine tasting locations! There were a few wasps that made their way inside one of the bedrooms, I think because there weren't screens on some of the windows, but there were so many beds that it was easy for our party of 5 to shift around. We would absolutely stay here again. Janet was very communicative and even left a nice bottle of scotch and some chocolate! Thank you so so much! Our bride had such a wonderful time.

The photos here don't evens how how amazing this property really is - the landscaping is beautiful, with vineyards and mountain views cascading around the house to make you feel truly relaxed and at peace! A little far from wine country (1 hr from calistoga) but worth the drive.
