Nine wonderful days at The Napa Art House!!! WELL worth the price!!

  • 5 of 5

Our party of two 60+, two 30+, and two 6 and under year olds rented this charming house for a stay in Napa that revolved around a family wedding. The house was perfect for all our needs, with AMPLE spaces for everyone's privacy, as well as group activities. We especially loved the backyard that was like a private paradise. Oh, how I miss the sight of those white climbing roses! The large, bright kitchen with two walls of windows (often opened for the fresh, sweet breezes) overlooking the backyard was where we started our glorious days. The kitchen was extremely well equipped, with everything working well. Everyone slept dreamily (even the kids) on great beds with super sheets and pillows. (The front bedroom did have a bit of street traffic noise, so LIGHT sleepers in that room may want to bring earplugs.)

The children and I enjoyed walks in the beautiful neighborhood to the nearby park with a great playground. Everything else was a convenient drive. Whole Foods, Trader Joe's and Target are in the same shopping center about 7 to 10 minutes away. Be sure to check out the cabinets and fridge before shopping, because there will be things left by former renters to take off your list.

Kim was amazing and quick help with some needs we asked of her before our arrival. Even though, she lives upstairs, we NEVER saw her in our total stay. It was a comfort to know she was available and nearby should there have been a problem.

I so wished I lived closer (currently live in Florida) to be able to stay more often at this house in Napa.

Lovely house, nice amenities

  • 4 of 5

Clean, nice house. We enjoyed the hot tub and front porch for morning coffee. Quiet neighborhood, if it was a little out of the way (10 min walk to downtown).

Beautiful home, excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my extended family for a week, and we had a wonderful experience. Plenty of room for two families with small children. The open kitchen and back patio were fantastic, and the separate cottage was a great space for the kids to have their own space for games/tv/etc. during the day. We used the hot tub almost every day! Kim was very responsive and helpful with our quesitons. Would stay again!

Simply the Best!

  • 5 of 5

What a GREAT HOUSE for a couples get-a-way or a group (6) people get-a-way like ours. The home is comfortable, spacious and has the best back yard with hot tube and little sitting room TV house. Close to downtown Napa, you can even walk and there is a great park just a block away.

We can't wait the book the Art House again!

Amazing home for a memorable girls weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This house was the perfect accommodation for a girls weekend with eight ladies. It is centrally located near downtown Napa (walking distance if you feel like walking ~1 mile) and a super easy Uber. It was a wonderful location to be able to see both Sonoma and Napa. The house was clean, the hot tub and deck were to die for, and it was stocked with plenty of necessities. Common areas comfortably sat eight which made our nights in fun and cozy. Would absolutely stay here again!
