My husband and I found this beautiful gem and can't say enough amazing things about The Canyon Villas. Chef Wills and Kath were genuine hosts who truly know the meaning of hospitality. Their attention to detail made our time there very special. We spent a day cooking with Chef Wills in "kitchen stadium" and it was neat to see his creativity come alive as he shared his years of culinary knowledge with us. The food was spectacular and absolutely beautiful. A true work of art made by an artist. We also loved Sunday Supper as we were able to share a meal with Chef Wills and Kath that he prepared. We also enjoyed telling stories and just chatting with them. Chef Wills and Kath know how to do it right and we are forever grateful for the time we were able to spend at The Canyon Villas. Add it to your bucket list. You need to go. We hope to return.

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

Caio David, Grazie Mille ... Your experience sums-up our hospitality perfectly. What impressed us the most is your amazing amount of touring to world-class cultural destinations along the Central Coast, relaxing afternoons enjoying the Villa as your home base, winery tastings, the Sunday Supper "trifecta" (conversations with all the guests, the wine and the food) and most of all, your kindness and respect for our property and us. We look forward to welcoming return visit! Con Affetto, Kath and Wills

Chef Wills and Kath were exceptional hosts! It was a pleasant surprise to be greated by Kath personally upon our arrival. First of all, the property itself is so beautiful
with manicured landscape, and perched on the hill overlooking the local vinyards. We loved the various birds scurrying around outside. Our room (Siena) was not only immaculately clean, but beautiful and relaxing with a fabulous view from our balcony. The bed was so comfortable, and cozy. Wine hour, and breakfast were our favorite. Kath shared lovely wines, and Chef Wills made us the most delicious tastes for wine hour, including various cheeses, dips, home made lavash crackers. The breakfasts were superb! We were able to enjoy mini croissants ("cornetti") with jam, a fruit parfait with granola, mint and lime zest, a fritatta with homemade Italian sausage, avocado toast, and orange slices with a maple ginger glaze. To be honest, the wine hour, and breakfast was the food we enjoyed most while in Paso. Our only regret- not adding on the dinner with Chef Wills (or staying Sunday for dinner!- We will be sure to do that next time!) We will certainly be back!

The Canyon Villa was incredibly relaxing. Wills and Kath were very inviting and gave exceptional service. We stayed for two nights but wished we stayed for longer. The room was so comfortable with a gorgeous bathroom and huge jacuzzi tub. The views around the property are stunning, great to enjoy the sunrise or sunset. One major highlight was the food that chef Wills prepared. Our breakfast was incredible with delicious croissants, frittata and a yogurt parfait. On top of that, we had a romantic 4 course dinner on the back patio that was tailored to our liking by the chef. Easily one of the tastiest and most romantic dinners I’ve had. I really cannot wait to book my next trip here. If you are looking for a romantic, quiet getaway, this is THE spot.

This was a vacation for the books. My wife and i set out for what was to be a babymoon but it turned out to be more than just a babymoon. Wills and Kath attention to detail is unmatched. The room was clean and met all our needs including a big whirlpool tub.
They've got a complementary cocktail hour where you get to sample chef's cheeses of the day and the day's blend of both white and red wine.
Best of all is the complimentary breakfast OMG...... Unrivaled....
Want the best of Italy? I dare you, try Wills dinner, you won't be disappointed

My husband and I stayed at canyon villa for 2 nights and we didn’t want to leave. The hosts Kath and Wills are just amazing human beings. They made us feel right at home from their very luxurious rooms and the most delicious food by Chef Wills🫶🏾. Every time spent there will be forever cherished. Chef Wills made me delicious vegan meals and I will forever be grateful. Definitely going back. If you are debating wether or not to go let me help you. Go! Book it! You will not regret a thing😊

Spent a fantastic long weekend at the Villa for a birthday celebration and can’t wait to return! Kath and Wills run a top notch place. It is a beautiful setting and so welcoming and clean. The breakfasts and wine hours are amazing, and the Sunday dinner is ridiculously good - so much so that we arranged a private dinner at the Villa on Monday - which I highly recommend. We ate at several great restaurants during our stay, including the Michelin starred restaurant at Justin (which I would also highly recommend), and the private dinner at the Villa was the best! One of the best aspects of our stay was getting to know Wills and Kath and the other guests staying there with us. We will definitely be back!!

What a great place to spend a few days in Paso’s wine country! The villa is lavishly comfortable, and Innkeepers Wills and Kat are so welcoming that you instantly feel at home. The daily wine hour is a grand way to start an evening with Kat pouring wine and Wills preparing delicious charcuterie boards. The Sunday Supper is a great tradition, and should not be missed. We also enjoyed a private dinner on our arrival day that was extraordinary. The Villa seems quite remote, yet it's only a few minutes to downtown Paso. Truly an exceptional place to unwind and feel pampered.

We have just returned home from our third visit to The Canyon Villa. Each stay has rivaled the one before. The owner/hosts Chef Wills and Kath are gracious and consistently offer their guests luxurious and immaculate accommodations, impeccable service and five-star cuisine.

Upon arrival you are warmly greeted and escorted to your room by Kath. You immediately feel welcome and ready to enjoy your stay in their beautiful Villa. We highly recommend arriving in time for the daily wine hour (5:30-6:30). Kath serves wine (a red and a white usually curated from one or more of Paso's numerous wineries) and Chef Wills presents his charcuterie board which features many of his own creations (his house made crackers are other worldly) and cheeses and cured meats that are often imported. It is truly a foodies delight in presentation, flavors and creativity.

Equally wonderful are the breakfasts. Once again Chef Wills offers delectable dishes which often feature local farmer’s market ingredients.

Even though there are many excellent restaurant choices for dinner in Paso we encourage you to stay in one evening and request Chef Wills’ private four course dinner. This was our third time experiencing his culinary magic and it rivaled Michelin Star quality.

So let your imagination go and The Canyon Villa's architecture, furnishings and landscaping along with its vineyard views and the gracious hospitality of Wills and Kath will transport you to Tuscany in the blink of an eye. It's a memorable and relaxing stay that will delight all the senses.

Cari saluti,
Marie & Ted Anderson, Hermosa Beach, CA

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!

Ciao, We would love to have you stay with us in October. Visiting then is magical as harvest is in full swing with wineries bustling with excitement of the grape crush. You are correct that it is impossible to predict state-to-state requirements. We are confident that travel will be open to visit our Villa. We are accepting reservations from out of state guests. I'd like to add that we just received our Select Registry "Select Safe" certification for 2021. This was a rigorous inspection that benefits our guests, our staff and us. Please call us with any questions. We welcome you. Kath and Wills
