Well maintained bungalow, with an incredible outdoor space and walking distance to downtown Napa.

  • 5 of 5

Cant wait to book again! Incrediblely beautiful home, clean with a fantastic space to entertain in the back.

Might recommend a more neutral palate in one of the two bedrooms? Was very pink...

Great house and great location

  • 5 of 5

Advertised as walking distance to downtown and that is absolutely accurate. We had a great time. Highlight - as far as house goes - Walked down to the Oxbow Public Market and grabbed a marinated tri-tip from the Five Dot Ranch and Cookhouse. Brought it back to the house for a BBQ and Bocce night.

If the house is available for your stay - I recommend you book it.

Absolutely beautiful !

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I decided on the Massa Cottage for our 25th anniversary trip to Napa and Sonoma. We fell in love with both California and this cottage. It was perfect for us. The 1930's decor was so quaint. It was the perfect size for us. The kitchen made it so easy to eat at home before a day of wine tasting. The fruit trees in the yard allowed us to have fresh fruit for breakfast. The neighbors were so incredibly kind and welcoming. We truly loved this cottage and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a well priced stay conveniently located so close to downtown Napa.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We had a girls wine weekend and stayed at the Massa House, it was absolutely perfect! I could not ask for a better place to stay in Napa. It was walking distance to shops and restaurants, house had everything we needed and more. We ate breakfast on the front patio and had evening wine and appetizers in the back yard amazing oasis! It was extremely comfortable and relaxing. I would highly recommend and would stay again in a heart beat! We did two wine tours, one by bus/van and another full day bike tour. Both were fantastic, but would encourage everyone to do the bike tour as you see so much more.

Charming cottage with plenty of space & walk to downtown

  • 5 of 5

The Massa Cottage was the perfect getaway for our ladies retreat! We would gather around the dining table or sit around the couch, drink wine, and chat the night away.

The neighbors are very friendly too and gave us suggestions on places to go.

Each night we walked downtown and had dinner after a day of wine tasting. The Napa night life is happpening!

To top it all off, we finished with lunch at The French Laundry which was only 15 minutes away.

Such a wonderful, transformative weekend. Thank you for opening up your home to us!

Exactly as described! Charming.

  • 5 of 5

Let me start by explaining my review standards: If a property is both as described on the site AND in decent / functional order, I think 5 stars is appropriate. After all, anything other that holding them to their advertisement is subjective. I will however, give some insight into what exactly you can expect, so that you can decide for yourself if you'll enjoy Massa Cottage as much as we did.

Amazing perks:

-walking distance to many things, including great dining in downtown Napa

-adorable and charming vintage cottage with cool history

-great decor

-necessities provided (additional towels, plates, corkscrew ;) etc)

-clean and well prepared for guests

-beautiful outdoor space available for use

Realities (not complaints just things to take into consideration):

-No Main area TV. This is not a complaint. Its just a fact. If we had wanted to relax in the evening with a communal movie, for example, this isn't possible. This is clearly posted in other reviews, so it shouldnt be a surprise, but should be considered depending on who you are with, how long youre staying and what youre looking to do. Also, the tvs in the rooms were good as they had both channels and a dvd player built in. However, since they are small they may pose a problem if you have less than great vision.

-Essentially No Wifi. Seriously. There is wifi but it was so bad that it literally STOPPED our phones / devices from working and we had to turn it off and run on data. Again, this was clearly noted by previous guests, but I am just confirming. Not a complaint. We had decent enough cell service to get out any pressing emails/ texts/ etc. But dont think they are exaggerating. If you need to work online for anything requiring heavier data / wifi capabilities while here, bring a hot spot or choose another location.

The cottage is simply adorable and perfect for a girls weekend or maybe even a couple's trip. We loved the book that explained a little about the history of the property, as well as the attention taken to recreating the original aspects of the house and its decor. Thank you so much for a wonderful home and if we are in Napa again, we would come back for sure!

Owner's Response: This house has fast wifi/internet. After reading this review, I performed a speed test standing outside of the house in the backyard on a cell phone and the speed tested was 32.3 mbps download and 3.16 mbps upload. This speed is described in the report as "your internet speed is fast." The speed report also noted "your internet connection should be able to handle multiple devices streaming HD videos at the same time." I wish I could attach the speed report for you to see with your own eyes, but the Homeaway system does not support attachments to responses. Every time a guest notes they are having trouble with the wifi and I go over to check on it, I find that one of the wifi components is unplugged. Yep, if you unplug the equipment, it will not work!! If you need help with something while you are at the house, simply ask so that your concern can be addressed in a timely manner during your visit. There is a TV in each bedroom along with its own Comcast Cable Box.
