Live in the Bay Area and have put our heart and soul into renovating the main house and the guest apartment. We are currently working on our garden so that in the future we can offer a variety of home grown fruit and vegetables.

NICHOLA MARTINEZ purchased this apartment in 2010

Why NICHOLA MARTINEZ chose Murphys

Needed a place to call our own and a restful place to retire. Added bonus of family across the street and wonderful neighbours.

What makes this apartment unique

Tucked away on a country road, a short walk to Indian Rock Winery and a quick drive to downtown Murphys and many other tasting rooms, shops and restaurants.

Beautiful, most importantly clean, and quiet and affordable

  • 5 of 5

Loved the comfortable bed and how clean everything was. Loved the Pecksniffs brand soaps and lotions from England. I'm going to buy some for our home! It was nice and quiet, no disturbances at all. Loved the experience.

Great spot in Murphys

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay! The home is in a lovely, quiet location and near a great downtown! We found it well equipped and comfortable. Hosts were responsive, friendly and always ready to help. There could be more cleaning before guests arrive though – we noticed the rug had not been vacuumed and there were some spiderwebs. Other than that the place was great!

Owner's Response: My apologies, I should have checked prior to your arrival. My cleaning lady, who is wonderful, mentioned that the vacuum was not picking up so well and because of the Holidays I had forgotten all about it. I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed everything else. PS. We got the vacuum fixed.
