Book with confidence! Magnolia House is one of Napa's only 41 legal whole~home, non-hosted Vacation Rentals (since 2008). City of Napa Vacation Rental Permit # VR09-0015; City of Napa Business License #26780.

Situated on a quiet tree-lined street in Downtown Napa, is Magnolia House, your home-away-from-home in the heart of the beautiful Napa Valley! Magnolia House guests enjoy the convenience of being a 2-block walk to the Napa Riverwalk Shopping and Dining District. The home is an 1890 Victorian farmhouse that has been tastefully restored and updated to feature today's modern conveniences, and has been well-stocked and equipped to provide our traveling guests with everything they would need to make it the perfect home base while they explore all that Wine Country has to offer!

Enjoy being steps away from 5-star dining, live music, wine bars, shopping, and galleries. The Oxbow Market is also a short walk from Magnolia House as is the new Napa River Trail on the east side of the river, southbound, which will bring you to the new Cinemark Movie Theatre Complex, Velo Bike Rental, Forge Pizza, In-Shape Gym, and the Farmer's Market on Saturdays. The corner grocer is only a block away from Magnolia House where you will find some of the finest meats and poultry in Napa, then return to bbq in Magnolia House's welcoming, spacious back garden. A short morning stroll will bring you to Sweetie Pies--a local favorite--for morning coffee, scrumptious quiche and baked goods, then head back to the charming front porch of Magnolia House to enjoy a good book, good friends and plan your activities for your day in the wine country. Just blocks away from the house, you'll discover world class dining: some Napa favorites are Morimoto's, Angele, Cole's Chop House, Basalt, Celadon, Allegria's, Napkins, ZuZus. (Dining and winery maps and guides are provided at the house and the Napa Visitor's Center is 3 blocks away on Main Street.) When staying at Magnolia House, all that Napa Valley has to offer are easily within your reach. Wineries are a 10 minute drive from the house in any direction, and San Francisco and the Bay Area are one hour to the south.

Owned and operated by a local Napa fine artist and wine label illustrator, Magnolia House sleeps up to seven adult guests and 2 children in beds and consists of a ground floor queen bedroom suite with a spacious, light~filled bathroom featuring a tub/shower combo. Also, there is a downstairs half bath and washer/dryer with detergent provided. Upstairs features two charming bedrooms (one furnished with a pillow top queen bed, the other features a pillow top full-size bed and a twin daybed) which share a hall bath with shower (baths furnished with hair dryers and plenty of extra towels). We furnish Magnolia House with high thread-count sheets, comfy faux down pillows, and fresh towels, as well as bath sheets for out guests using the spa, and all of the paper goods and detergents you would expect to have in your own home--toilet paper, paper towels, napkins, soaps and shampoos, etc. During your stay, you'll enjoy free wifi, a new 43"' flat screen cable TV with a DVD library, central A/C and ceiling fans throughout, a comfortable living area, wood~burning fireplace, spacious indoor dining for 8, a fully-equipped cherrywood kitchen featuring all stainless appliances, granite countertops, and gas range. The kitchen is well stocked with everything one might need to cook including most condiments, spices, coffee supplies, as well as some staple food items. Magnolia House offers off-street parking for up to 4 cars in its generous driveway. The backyard features lawns, deck and paved areas with tables and chair and lounge seating, bbq, fire pit, a corn hole bean bag game, and a hot tub that seats up to 6.

Magnolia House is close to easy access to Highway 29 and the Silverado Trail, home of the finest wineries in the world. Drive time: 5 minutes to Carneros Region wineries (southwest Napa) and 5 minutes to Napa wineries off Silverado Trail, 20 minutes to Sonoma Square, 15 minutes to Yountville, 25 minutes to St. Helena, 40 minutes to Calistoga.

It's a 55 minute drive to San Francisco, 55 minutes to Oakland International Airport, and 75 minutes to San Francisco International Airport.

To enhance your wine country experience, upon request, we are happy to supply our guests with concierge links on local activities and services such as wine tours and day spas, in advance of your visit to the Napa Valley.

Perfect House for Girls Get-away

  • 5 of 5

This cute Napa Farmhouse was the IDEAL house for our Girls Napa Get-away. There were six of us ladies and we couldn't have had a better stay. The layout of the house is terrific with one bedroom downstairs and two up... Beds were comfy, kitchen has everything you need to be able to cook your meals and the front porch and hot tub were very nice bonuses. Another nice feature was that we had plenty of Hot Water. With six ladies getting ready to go in the morning, we all were able to have a hot shower. Homeowner, Suzy, was terrific with her communications prior to our arrival and left us clear instructions in the house with how things run and also gave us ideas for places to visit in Napa and maps on how to get there. The location for this house is so convenient to downtown and it's in a super cute neighborhood of vintage homes. So Cute!! We had such a great experience staying here and will absolutely book again for our next trip. Thank you, Suzy!! We had so much fun!

The Best

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at many VRBO's across the country and this may be the best. The location in Napa was great, we walked to the visitor center and to dinner. The house is an older home with lots of charm and essential updates. We used the hot tub on the back patio and had morning coffee on the deck surrounded by a beautifully landscaped back yard. We were all able to watch a movie one night and there was lots of comfortable seating space in the living room. We needed a three bedroom to fit our crew and everyone loved this home. We will definitely be back!

Excellent experience

  • 5 of 5

Excellent choice to stay in NAPA. The house was great and very accommodating for 3 couples. It was an easy walk to restaurants, shopping. A nice porch and back yard with sitting area. We would stay here again the next time we are in NAPA.

Outstanding Napa House Rental

  • 5 of 5

Having scouted the property beforehand, and being rather familiar with thr neighborhood from previous visits, we expected a comfortable, decent accommodation. The house well exceeded our preconceptions. It was very well appointed, easily allowing the six of us to enjoy privacy as well as communality. Whether it was breakfasting (and birdwatching) on the back porch, relaxing in the hot tub, or just lounging in the large dining/denning room, we quickly adapted to all the comforts afforded. We also appreciated having the washer/ dryer (don’t get at B&B’s or hotels generally), the well-stocked cupboards, 21/2 bathrooms (no waiting), & 3 bedrooms with plenty of closet and bureau space. The house was conveniently located within easy walking distance of downtown,several fine restaurants, and the river promenade. AC worked fine. The driveway easily accommodated our three rental cars. Wi-fi worked well. Would happily return in a future visit, or recommend to anyone looking to stay in Napa. Thank you, Suzy!

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Napa! It was great to have a place from which we could walk just about anywhere. Coming back to a hot tub and extremely comfortable beds each night was s delight. We’ll be back!
