My wife and I planned this trip (ourselves and 4 adult family members to experience Napa) for at least 6 months and so much hinged on how well we would like this house and location. After a week stay we highly recommend this property. Location was excellent! House was even better than the pictures. We had planned a full week of sightseeing, tastings and immersion in the Napa experience we have come to love. Even included a day trip into SF for a baseball game and sightseeing. The house and hospitality of everyone involved with the house was phenomenal.
First night in the house we experienced a 6.1 earthquake at 3:20am. There was much damage to contents but the house and the 6 of us were quite shaken but unharmed. Having never experienced anything like that we called to see if there was anything we should do (where to turn off gas, etc). Mike came out within 20-30 minutes to check on us, even though he had experienced significant damage at his home as well. He helped get us settled down and was back at 9am with a crew to start the full clean-up. We went off to enjoy our Napa plans and that is how the rest of the week went as well. Mike (manager) and Thom (owner) took such good care of us (replaced furniture as needed, lots of dishes and glassware, etc, cleaned carpets and rugs, etc). And virtually all of that was done while we were out enjoying Napa and Sonoma.
The house was great and accommodated three couples very nicely. So fun to come back at the end of each day and prepare and enjoy evening meals, great wine and gorgeous sunsets from the deck. Mornings brought the hot air balloons across the sky which was so fun to see.
All in all the trip my wife and I had so much hope for being a truly memorable experience turned out to be exactly that! And the earthquake became just an added historic experience that was completely unexpected by us. Clearly building codes have been designed well for newer construction in the area as, structurally, the house was seemingly unscathed.
Much praise to Thom and Mike and all who helped them throughout the week. We could not recommend this property more highly. We will clearly return to Napa and will look forward to staying at this property as often as we can.
