Why Keith and Maurie Jacinto chose Lodi
We have an antique and estate sales business and had come across this house in disrepair. We had known the owner and this house for a long time and had admired it's architecture. We couldn't pass it up in such a beautiful location. It is close walking distance to everything! We have spent almost a year lovingly restoring it. We have just added another new central heat and air upstairs for the summer months. The wine industry has grown so much in Lodi, but very few places are available for rent for the wine events. We have our own connections to the wine industry and we have a vineyard of merlot grapes, thus came the name 'Merlot Bungalow'.

Lovely Spacious Home, Attentive Hosts and Convenient Location
This is one of the nicest VRBO's we have stayed in. The home is exactly as it appears in the photos. The host went above and beyond to ensure we enjoyed our stay. I would definitely come back and vacation in this home again. Thank you!
The home is done beautifully. We felt so at home here. Maurie made us an amazing Sunday brunch that really topped our weekend off and made our mother’s birthday fantastic.
Charming house in a lovely neighborhood
We enjoyed our stay at this beautiful house in Lodi. It was within walking distance of the lovely downtown area with lots of shops, restaurants and a movie theater. The rooms were comfortable and the kitchen was beautiful and well equipped.
A real gem.
Love this place!
This place is fantastic; lots of room to socialize and entertain, plenty of bed-space, and the A/C is amazing in the Lodi summer heat. Would definitely rent again.
Beautiful stay in lovable Lodi!
A perfect home to celebrate our aunt’s 90th birthday. Excellent location to walk to town. Antiques in each room were beautiful! We would recommend this home for any Occasion!
Home has everything and is right in the heart of Lodi.
This was the perfect home for our visit to Lodi for a family wedding. We walked to local places and wine tasted nearby. We all loved the comfort of this well cared for Home. We had everything we needed and some extras. We felt very welcome upon arrival and hated to leave at the end.
Lodi is a huge area for tasting some of the best wines in the state and nationally, with over 80 wineries and events.
More breweries have been added to the downtown area also that have weekend events/music.
Many activities are nearby but more than15 minutes if you are up to traveling. We are centrally located to many outdoor activities.
