CHARLESTON, S.C., December 1, 2018 – Select Registry (, a diverse collection of independent, boutique properties located throughout the U.S., is pleased to welcome the award-winning The Canyon Villa in Paso Robles, CA as its newest member. The luxury boutique Inn is situated among the rolling hills and vineyards of the Paso Robles wine region in Central California.

“We are delighted to welcome The Canyon Villa and its owners, Wills and Katherine Bloxsom-Carter, to Select Registry,” said Select Registry CEO Mark Jaronski. “The property offers guests a really luxurious, relaxing getaway amidst the amazing Paso Robles wine region and its many vineyards and outdoor activities.”

The Bloxsom-Carters purchased the Inn in 2015.   They searched for over five years before finding the perfect property in the Paso Robles wine region.  Wills was the Executive Chef and Food and Beverage Director at the Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles for three decades. There, he perfected his culinary craft garnering worldwide respect from his peers and earning numerous accolades.
