Perched in the hills of Sonoma surrounded by 100-year-old oaks and an undulating pastoral landscape, Mayacama is a dream retreat for oenophiles and their loved ones. Tasting fine wine here is a given, and so is teeing off on the spectacular Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course, luxuriating at the European spa, and then returning home to lavish private homes and delectable gourmet meals. At Mayacama in Sonoma, a vibrant Club lifestyle is blended with 5-star service and year-round social, culinary and wine programs, making membership here remarkably unique.
It’s all a new, bacchanalian spin on the Private Residence Club model, an innovative, fractional homeownership concept that is growing in popularity in the U.S. and abroad. At Mayacama, homeowners enjoy a new level of sophistication for personalized escapes in wine country: think 3,000 square foot wine cellars and top-rated wine served all over the property. Members at Sonoma’s Mayacama are also given exclusive access to social, culinary and wine gatherings attended by leading winemakers and industry experts throughout the year.
As part of Timbers Resorts, Mayacama Residences offers luxury, practicality and convenience in a picturesque setting with a 40,000-square-foot, Mediterranean-inspired clubhouse. The grounds also feature spa services, a fitness center, tennis courts, the golf course and formal and alfresco dining. To top it off, members of Mayacama in Wine Country enjoy ample services and benefits. For example, each time they travel to Sonoma, their beautifully furnished and impeccably maintained residences are waiting, refrigerators and pantries stocked, personal concierges at the ready to ensure their time here is flawless. With several options for ownership, buyers can tailor a membership at Mayacama to fit their lifestyle.
“Our members come from all over the world, though the majority are from the Bay Area. A good amount are also from the Northeast,” says Jonathan Wilhelm, managing partner of Mayacama. “The golf course and the clubhouse are amazing and we have received many accolades, but the soul of Mayacama is the wine. We are a wine club, with the occasional round of golf.”
With an opulent Mayacama Residence comes a membership in the Signature Mayacama Vintner Member Program. This elite group gives members an introduction to 35 leading winemakers from Napa and Sonoma – some of the world’s most notable vintners. These wine celebrities host special events and provide behind-the-scenes access to their wineries, and members are also invited to educational seminars and guided tours that offer deep insight into the enticing world of wine.
Mayacama is more than a luxury Private Residence Club. It is an all-encompassing lifestyle experience defined by high-class gastronomy, stunning landscapes, state-of-the-art amenities and sumptuous accommodations, all revolving around an appreciation for the world’s most coveted wine and the finer things in life.
