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.

My stay at " The Annex in Murphys"

  • 5 of 5

Larry and Nicki were wonderful hosts. I found out when I met them that I knew Larry from several meetings in the past and that Nicki new a lot of my business associates and friends.

Apartment was very nicely laid out with it's own private deck and entry. Great location and close to down town Murphys.

Will go back again.

My husband and I loved this property! It is absolutely immaculate and perfect for two. It is in a very quiet neighborhood and just a short drive into town. Had great communication with the property owner. We recommend staying here without hesitation. Murphys is a great little town!

Very clean and well cared for!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place to get away! Located in a beautiful rural area with plenty of privacy. The owners were friendly and helpful and thought of many generous "extras" to make our stay comfortable and restful in their "in-laws" quarters. Will try to stay there again...for sure!

Great little home!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location. New, simple, and clean apartment. We loved coming home to this wonderful environment each evening. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

We did not miss having cable - the wifi was great. Too bad about poor Verizon reception, but that was really all over the Murphys area.

Lovely and Private Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came for a weekend getaway and found the home very nicely appointed with plush towels, comfortable bed and linens, and a complete kitchen with a screened off exterior deck. Nicki was charming and gracious, she checked in but otherwise, we had the place to ourselves. Murphy's is about a mile away and in the neighborhood, there are lots of places to go for a walk. Be prepared for people driving by to wave a greeting. It was a wonderful respite and we'll return.

We LOVED this place!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful surprise this little place was! Quiet, clean, tidy, comfortable, relaxing. Has a European feel. We would not hesitate to recommend this to other travelers and we actually already have to another couple we met at the Ironstone Winery car show. Enjoyed early morning coffee on the deck as we watched deer stroll the yard below. This is about 2 miles from the center of the town of Murphys. Hard to find lodging in the town of Murphys when they have events in going on. This was worth the 2 mile drive. We will most definitely return.
