Perfect

  • 4 of 5

The Napa Art House was our perfect home base for four nights in Napa. There was more than enough space for all five of us and at the end of each day we would gather in the back yard for a soak in the hot tub and a glass of wine around the table. The location and proximity to downtown was also perfect for us and we were able to quickly access the highway to vineyards and walk to dinner. Our contact was responsive and provided answers to any question we had. We loved our time here!

Very comfortable home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

Well stocked kitchen, very soft towels, comfortable beds, great backyard area / hot tub, clean inside and out, great location. We really had no need to contact the owner or caretaker as we had no issues. Would definitely stay again.

A cool and quiet oasis in the heat of summer

  • 5 of 5

The Napa Art House was a gem that I found, while searching for a place for reunions and celebrations during my week in Napa. The living and dining areas were great for hanging out, but the most popular spot to chat and catch up over coffee was the bright, spacious and airy kitchen. The secluded outdoor deck and hot tub also provided our group of friends with many happy moments! The master bedroom was large and comfortable too.

Probably the only drawback was that there was only one other smallish bathroom, to be shared among all the other guests.

The property manager Kim was helpful and available throughout our stay.

Overall a very enjoyable week indeed! Thank you!

The Napa Art House

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Napa Art House was amazing. The space was beautiful, comfortable, and clean. Kim was extremely accommodating and offered us a Bluetooth speaker when we realized the stereo system was not functioning. We highly reccomend this space and are hoping to stay here again!
