Why Keith and Maurie Jacinto chose Central Valley California

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 are own connections to the wine industry and we have a vineyard of merlot grapes, thus came the name 'Merlot Bungalow'.

Beautiful and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two nights with family and friends and celebrated my mother's 90th birthday with a brunch at the house. The house was perfect for this visit and event. The kitchen was spacious and modern allowing me to prepare a brunch easily for a group. The rooms were exceptionally comfortable and allowed easy talking and visiting. The guests were impressed with the historic house and renovation. The upstairs bedrooms were clean and attractive. Thank you so much for the extra touches such as the bottle of local wine, seasonal flowers and the delightful Holy Cow cheese from a local cheese shop in Lodi.

Cozy Stay in Classic Home

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time my family and I have stayed in this beautiful house. We were able to fit 7 people comfortably. The beds are very comfortable and all of the amenities were exactly as listed. The property is extremely well kept and very clean. We even got a compliment on the house when we were walking out one night by some people walking by. We received excellent customer service--the landlord is very prompt and accommodating to the needs of the patrons. I would definitely recommend this house to any family who is visiting the area--whether it be to Lodi or wanting to stay outside of the big cities surrounding it. It is in perfect walking distance of a shopping area and movie theater in a very family friendly neighborhood. If we get the chance to come back, we will definitely try to stay here again.

Return Trip!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I love this house, and this was our second return as a group. It is beautifully restored and decorated. One can find many things to do in Lodi. We love to combine bird watch with wine tasting. However, I should add that the rooms in this house are so well configured for socializing that we also like to cook for ourselves and just hang out and socialize despite the fact that great restaurants are within walking distance. We have plans to return.

Merlot Bungalow

  • 5 of 5

Three girls enjoyed our three night stay at the Merlot Bungalow in Lodi, CA. It is approximately two blocks from downtown Lodi which has great restaurants and a number of wine tasting rooms as well as Lodi Beer Company....if you prefer a beer amongst the best Zin Country we've ever been to! Upon arrival we were welcomed with a nice bottle of wine along with cheese and crackers in this mature, yet renovated, home. The house was just perfect for accommodating the three of us with three nice sized bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, a great kitchen, living area, nice backyard. Maurie, the owner, was so helpful in suggesting restaurants and wineries we should hit. Parking is provided if you have a car, in a very safe neighborhood, we would go back next weekend if we could! Highly recommend!!!!
