Absolutely exceeded expectations - we truly didn’t want to leave! What we enjoyed: -Hosts Kath and Chef Wills; they’ve created an experience to be treasured -Tapestries, fine art, and beautiful books throughout -Hummingbirds and warblers bathing in the fountain -Peaceful wind flowing through the many trees surrounding the villa, best enjoyed from our private patio -Sweeping wine country views -Immaculate guest quarters with plush linens -Jetted tub for ultimate relaxation -Sipping coffee under the pergola while watching the quail scurry about -Morning breakfast on the patio with unique and perfectly balanced creations by Chef Wills -Evening wine hour with host Kath pouring beautifully curated wines to go with Chef’s carefully prepared selection of cheeses, fruit, and handmade breads Our only regret was not staying on a Sunday night to enjoy Chef’s famous “Sunday Supper.” And now we have a fine reason to return again to the villa. Enjoy!…
Out of this world hospitality in an incredible villa situated on incredible setting Wills and Katherine treated us a royalty. Wills is a master chef and his morning creations are fabulous. Afternoon wine and cheese time are full of wonderful wines and cheeses. We enjoyed a private dinner cooked by Chef Wills (who has an extensive and impressive resume). The Villa sits atop a hill overlooking multiple vineyards equally as impressive as any Tuscan property. Only four suites which allowed privacy if wanted or opportunity to visit and make new friends. Highly recommend this adventure We were here for four nights and each day and night were special on their own
From our first view from the balcony of our suite we were in awe of this wonderful escape. We enjoyed incredible meals both nights. Wills is an artist with the plating of his delicious foodie wonders. Each bite was a magnificent adventure of tastes. Kath was the ultimate hostess and the two compliment each other in making you feel at home. Definitely will be returning sooner than later. Thanks Wills and Kath!
As much as we wanted to love being here, we didn’t. It felt very restrictive as there were written rules to adhere to. They present you with their handbook via email so you know what to expect in advance of your stay. Wills and Kath were a bit to pretentious for our liking. To each their own. The rooms were very nice and the bath with a jacuzzi tub was a nice touch. The breakfast was plenty and presents was nice. Nothing over the top, but nice.
"Tuscany without TSA" is the best way to explain this fantastic Gem in Paso Robles. My wife and I spent two wonderful days at this fantastic Villa. 2 miles from downtown Paso and you are transported to a Tuscan hillside villa. The reception and attention you receive from your hosts Wills and Katherine is far superior to any 5 Star hotel, and the gourmet food ranks above most Michelin star restaurants. The rooms (only 4) ensure that you are pampered and have the most fantastic meals by Chef Wills. Katherine's hospitality is evident from the moment you arrive at the gates, she is a consummate hostess. My wife and I have already booked our next visit and will bring another couple to experience this gem of the central coast.
My wife and I came here with three other couples, one of whom was celebrating a milestone birthday. The hospitality and ambiance were phenomenal, and Chef Carter (of Playboy Mansion fame) is the proprietor here and there are some amazing culinary experiences that you can make happen during your stay at the Canyon Villa. Chef Carter made some amazing food for every food eating occasion. Beautiful views, clean facility and it’s an adults only venue with only 4 rooms so we had basically rented the facility out to our party. Can’t wait to come back again. Highly recommend to friends and couples wanting a quaint upscale long weekend experience in the central CA wine country.
Myself, my husband, and three other couples stayed at Canyon Villa for a weekend in June 2022. We were very impressed with the atmosphere, cleanliness, and quality of everything. The food and service was spectacular!!! My birthday meal was absolutely amazing customized to my palate and done in such a professional manner. Every meal and wine hour was delightful. I will definitely return and highly recommend! The location is excellent, very quick drive to Paso downtown, and yet it feels so remote and private. Comfortable beds, impeccable rooms, views for days, and attention to detail. Cool towels upon arrival is one example of feeling pampered after you’ve traveled and it’s 100 degrees outside! Cannot wait to come back! ~Very impressed guests, Lori and Josh
This was our first bed and breakfast stay and wow, the bar is set high! Thank you Wills and Kath for your amazing hospitality, you know what you’re doing. Wills food will blow you away. Kath’s warmth and welcoming persona will make you feel at home. We can’t wait to come back and celebrate again! Photos: @nikkelsphotography
My husband and I spent 2 nights at the Canyon Villa on our 3rd visit. There are so many reasons we keep coming back - the welcome we get from Kath and Wills, the spectacular breakfasts and wine hour nibbles, the gorgeous and convenient location, the extremely comfortable and quiet rooms. On this visit we really enjoyed sitting on our balcony and watching the birds and other wildlife. Needless to say, we'll be coming back the next time we're in Paso!
My wife and I visited between June 8-10 and our stay was extraordinary in every way. Katherine and her husband Chef Wills went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and welcome. The Villa is perched on a hilltop with a commanding view of the valley and the vineyards--a breathtaking location. We stayed in the Sienna Room which was very comfortable and had a king bed. The piece de resistance X 2 was Chef Wills gourmet breakfasts and daily wine tasting with a personalized charcuterie board--I would return for those two experiences alone. A relaxing and very tranquil visit; highly recommended and we would return.
