The Vandenberg House was a great experience and we will defiantly use it again in the future :-)
Christiane was a great host and very accommodating considering it was a last minute booking :) The space was like as listed and perfect for our meeting. We would definitely recommend this place to others!
Christiane was very nice and accommodating, it was a pleasure to work with her. Everyone loved the place, it was the perfect setting for our friend's baby shower. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a beautiful, cozy place for their event!
Absolutely gorgeous and intimate space. Christiane is a pleasure to work with, so friendly and helpful! Looking forward to hosting more successful events here.
This space was absolutely perfect to celebrate my wife and I's wedding reception. From our first visit, we knew we had to do it, and Christiane was so accommodating and generous with us having access around the space. Everything was easy to maneuver and I would absolutely recommend it for weddings and/or wedding related events. I absolutely see us using the space again sometime in the future.
Christiane provided us with an absolutely incredible space for our reveal. We had a very specific theme and she happily accomodate removing the pictures for us for this to be fulfilled. Christiane happily answered any and all questions I had & provided staging suggestions whilst setting up. All of our guests were blown away by the space. I would hold another event here in a heartbeat & so would many of our family members. Thank you so much for making such a meaningful day so easy & carefree.
The space was beautiful and clean, and Christiane was helpful and responded promptly to any questions I asked. I would definitely recommend renting this space! It is also cheaper than other options (even some smaller ones)
Renting this space was the best decision I made! Christiane's space offers the perfect setting for an intimate event, or a full blown larger event. The characteristics and decor on the inside make this space very special, offering it a sophisticated yet casual style featuring one-of-a-kind antiques, velvet chairs, unique lighting fixtures, and so much more. Your guests will wonder how you pulled together such a beautiful spot. Christiane had impeccable communication with me the entire process, and even let me come to the event space a couple extra times to drop off and pickup items. with little notice. The kitchen is fully functional, and truly a lifesaver for any event. Bonus perks worth mentioning - there is ample furniture to curate your event, speakers that are fantastic, wifi, serving platters and accessories, coffee machine, and a clothing rack - so many wonderful elements that will allow you to focus on your event and not the "little stuff". Will for sure book again - thank you!!
This space is perfect for casual events. My guests and I really enjoyed the vibe and the layout was perfect for small-scale catering. It was clean and well-maintained. Christiane was easily reachable, friendly, and extremely helpful. Would not hesitate to book again!
I had an amazing experience booking with Christiane. She was reliable and knowledgeable. The space was super cute and better than I expected. It was perfect for a small party. I would definitely book a space with Christiane again.
