Staying with Monica and Jack on their Orange Grove is amazing. Learning their history and tasting local food was a hit.

Wicky Up was an escape from cares of every day life with the comforts of home. Our hosts, Monica and Jack were warm and caring. Talents displayed in the kitchen were super! Their information on interesting and beautiful places to see and things to do enhanced our visit with great memories for when we returned to the rat race.

Gracious hosts share their 100 year old craftsman home and its history and furnishings, gourmet breakfasts with accents from their garden, with terrific tips for day trips turned our 2 night stay into 3 nights. Delightful!

For those who want to return to what life was like in early California, the ranch, the home and the gracious hospitality you will find no better example. A restful oasis in the midst of modern day chaos.

My family and I were thrilled with the facilities and hosts at Wickyup. We loved the peaceful surrounding and elegant breakfast. The Owners even suggested a place to see the sunset! It was lovely.

This is our second time at Wicky Up! What brings us back is the warmth we feel every time we visit. Monica and Jack will make you feel at home with their welcoming spirit. Every detail is though of... the delicious breakfasts, comfortable bed, clean, comfortable rooms, and the special extras. We will definitely be back!

We had a wonderful time at Wicky Up! Monica was fabulous with her recommendations for dinner, trail map for a sunset walk, and directions/advice for Sequoia National Park. We loved being about to pick fresh oranges to eat and use for our orange juice in the morning. The breakfast was fantastic and my husband had a great time chatting with Jack! Our room was great and made us feel very much at home during our stay. If we are back in the area again, we will definitely be staying here.

My sister and I spent Easter weekend here and it was delightful! As we drove up the drive on Friday night it smelled like HEAVEN! the citrus groves mixed with the blooming jasmine was something I will never forget. Monica and Jack could not have been more accomodating. They hosted our adult daughters for breakfast on Saturday and we all spent several hours chattng in the shade and enjoying a rare opportunity to be together in lovely surroundings. The breakfasts were amazing-fresh orange juice, white grapefruit with lavendar honey, sliced oranges with balsamic reduction just enhanced the beautiful baked goods and breakfast casserole or omelette. The coffee was delicious, plentiful and available as early as we wanted it. Sitting on the veranda, drinking coffee and reading while the delightful scent of the orchards wafted in is almost indescribable. Monica also shared hiking tips and local restaurants with us as well. We really enjoyed learning about the lovely house and family. GREAT place!

We stayed for two nights over Easter weekend and took possession of the upper floor with 2 bedrooms, bathroom and delightful sitting area. Monica and Jack were outstanding host and hostess and we were spoiled and pampered from the moment we arrived until our reluctant farewell. From the lace edged cotton sheets, sprayed with Lavender water, to the bedside chocolates and sumptuous breakfasts, we were spoiled at every turn and Monica went out of her way to ensure we made the most of our two night stay. We would return again without hesitation. A luxurious stay in a beautiful and treasure filled homestead

I dare anyone to stay and not leave feeling happy, satisfied, spoiled, and a little like one has been invited into the cozy inner sanctum of a very special place. Monica and Jack are the perfect hosts.
