About Thom Thompson

Before creating this and two other Vacation Rentals, we spent many years in the hospitalty industry. We moved to Northern California after selling an award winning boutique hotel in Palm Springs.

We feel that Vacation Rentals provide a unique hospitality opportunity. We look forward to sharing our vacation homes with you.

Thom Thompson purchased this house in 2005

Why Thom Thompson chose Napa

Owning Vacation Rental Homes seemed like a natural transition from the hotel and hospitality industry. Compaired to hotels Vacation Rentals offer great value and an experience that can not be duplicated in a hotel.

What makes this house unique

Located 9 minutes from downtown Napa and and 9 minutes to Yountville, two locations you will want to spend time in, makes this villa ideal for enjoying what the Napa Valley offers.

Located on 1.5 acres, the property is very private, yet close to shopping, wineries and great restaurants.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Thom/Julie,

Just wanted to thank you for everything this past weekend. The house was beautiful and made our stay in Napa amazing! We loved every minute of it and appreciate all the detail that was put into the house. The pictures online did not do it justice! If you ever consider selling it- I am interested :)

Hope you have a wonderful week.

Perfect Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

This home was even more beautiful than it looks in the pictures. The location is great, the amenities are incredible and the layout very private. We filled the house with 8 family members and were very comfortable. The pool/jacuzzi were a hit along with a real-wood fireplace for the chilly fall nights. The kitchen is fully-equipped and the downstairs galley came in handy for our Thanksgiving dinner. We certainly enjoyed our stay and I would highly recommend this property.

Absolutely beautiful home and gardens. Great wine tastings!

  • 4 of 5

We were 4 couples there for a week of wine tastings, SF city, nice dining experiences and outdoor activities and hiking. This location offered all in abundance (of course getting to SF and Muir Woods meant we had to drive an hour +, but it allowed us beautiful views along the way :). The house was so great though, that it made the drives back excited. Honestly, we couldn't wait to get home, all get in the kitchen together (always fun with a group of friends), sit in the outdoor living room together with our wines of the day and laugh and talk while we relaxed in the hot tub. The pool is beautiful and made for a good morning swim too! Home and furnishings were very "Italian Villa" and we'll maintained. I gave this a 4 star though because the hot water heater made strange noises at night and woke those in the rooms nearby. I and my husband were in the beautiful upstairs rooms though:). I believe they may be repairing that though since I mentioned it at checkout. But that is not really why it gets a 4 star. The 4 star is because the sofa bed mattress was terrible. I did not sleep on it but the other three couples tried to and one even ended up putting a blanket and pillows on the floor and sleeping there. On day 3 we went and bought air mattress. About $180 so that was disappointing. I did tell Julie at check out about this so I feel sure she will have a new mattress put on that sleeper sofa. She was so quick to respond if we had a question or concern . For example the lights did not work at the grill the first night by early the next morning someone was there to repair that . Very attentive care. It may be worth asking about hot water heater and sleeper mattress if you should consider this home though and will be using the downstairs sofa. We would definitely return to that home or recommend it to anyone.

Owner's Response: Dear Guests, Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We are very pleased that overall your experience at the house was positive. We are also grateful that you brought the two items to our attention. The hot water heater has been replaced. The plumber said that it was in the process of going out. Had you not brought the noise to our attention it could have gone out completely which would have been even a greater issue. We have replaced the mattress on the sofa bed with a new one. Again, thank you for both your positive review and bringing these issues to our attention.

Great home - very nicely decorated, very comfortable!

  • 4 of 5

Fantastic home for large family or couples visiting Napa area! Rooms are very nicely decorated and comfortable. Hot tub and pool were great gathering locations after a long day of exploring the area. We made good use of the grill. Kitchen had all necessary utensils...and the home is within a couple miles of Whole Foods, Trader Joes and a nice local grocery store, so it's convenient to stock up on provisions. The only (really minor) recommendation I'd offer is to suggest that the owners provide a few more basic cooking ingredients (stocked spice rack, etc.). We'd definitely stay at this location again!!

Excellent value and location for our 6 adult Napa Valley vacation.

  • 4 of 5

The home was as presented, very clean and maintained, and well appointed. Wonderful linens and a generous supply of towels, which is sometimes lacking.

The pool and "gathering place" was a favorite after a day of wine tasting.

The heating/cooling system was challenging, and we eventually simply turned it off. The property was an excellent choice for our family group.

Owner's Response: Dear Guests, Thank you very much for taking the time to write this review and for your positive comments. I apologize that you had an issue with the H/AC systems. I hope that you were made aware at check-in there are 2 separate H/AC zones. Each one has its own thermostat. There is one upstairs and one for the downstairs. If that was the issue I apologize that you were not made aware of the dual zones at check-in. Immediately after this review we tested the systems and were unable to find a problem. The current renters are not experiencing any issues either. My only regret, beyond your being inconvenienced, is that, as we were unaware that you were experiencing an issue during your stay, we could not address the issue promptly. We hope that you will consider staying at the house again on future trips to the Napa Valley.
