Both Bill and Paul are artists who live in the Bay Area. Bill is a full-time photographer and Paul works at the University of California San Francisco directing research projects. As an alternative to the buzz of the big city, they love the peace and quiet of Napa. Bill loves to cook and both love to sample good wine. In their spare time, they survey the back roads of Northern California on their motorcycles and love to go motorcycling and camping in their Airstream. They designed the Napa Vacation Bungalow to be as comfortable and relaxing as possible and figured that if it met their expectations, chances are, it would meet other's. So far, it's been a great success. Almost everyone that visits says the property is much more beautiful than the pictures on the internet led them to believe. Practically everyone seems to fall in love with the peaceful, attractive setting. Seriously -- read the reviews! Bill and Paul are excited to have you stay at this oasis while you visit this amazing area. They welcome everyone and they're supportive of marriage, for everyone, and families, of all kinds.
Paul Cotten purchased this bungalow in 2007
Bill and Paul visited friends in Napa and fell in love with Napa's geographic beauty, world-class restaurants, wineries and its proximity to San Francisco. They searched for many months to find the perfect home. The Napa Vacation Bungalow turned out to be an ideal location balancing privacy with access by foot to downtown Napa shops, spas and restaurants. With so much within walking distance and wine tours available to pick you up from our home, you can enjoy an auto-free vacation!
Guests who stay at the Napa Vacation Bungalow say the pictures on the web don't do it justice! They find the home peaceful, relaxing and quiet, with everything possible provided and that they'd come back in a heartbeat.
We've strived to create a special place that isn't fussy or uptight and doesn't feel like a rental but feels like your home might feel. We've created a place that we love to visit when we can and we reasoned that if we really liked it, others would too. And it worked! We are always thrilled when guests arrive at our house and we watch the reaction on their faces as they see the property for the first time. It's always fulfilling and reassuring to know that guests are totally delighted with their selection. That is the start of a memorable vacation! Please visit our website (see link below).
As a professional travel writer, I spend countless days each year flying around the world and inspecting vacation destinations like hotels and boats for reports in magazines. It never ceases to amaze me how many of these places are nothing like their advertisements. So many properties out there are all marketing and no substance.
I was thus both relieved and pleased to see that the Napa Vacation Bungalow was exactly as advertised--cute, safe, comfortable, and a short walk to town. The rental process was handled professionally, the house was fantastic, and my vacation was terrific.
I was in Napa for my 40th birthday with a group of female friends, and everyone absolutely loved the place. We had a great time touring the wineries up in the county by day, walking to gourmet restaurants in town at night, and then enjoying a nightcap in the bungalow's hot tub. Even the people who slept on the pull-out sofas were comfortable. It was an absolutely superb experience, exactly as I had hoped it would be.
Loved the location, details were exquisite. Really enjoyed the high end furnishings, comfort and attention to detail (black washcloths for makeup!). Will be back, thanks.
My wife and I took our 2 children and their significant others to Napa for a short trip while we were out there visiting them in Southern CA for the holidays. The house was really perfect for our stay. My wife and I took the guest house and the younger adults had the main house to themselves. It was close to downtown, very nicely done inside and had all the amenities we needed. Makes a good homebase in Napa for a small group.
I travelled with my husband, dog, sister and her husband. This house was PERFECT. It is impeccably clean, and arranged very well for two couples plus. If any of us had young kids, it would have accommodated them as well. The house is open and perfect for drinking wine, cooking and talking. The owners are very helpful and attentive. The yard is absolutely lovely. I went for a few walks by myself early in the morning and meandered into historic Napa, as well as some other nice areas. The house is close to wineries, groceries, restaurants, bars...you name it.
The house is well decorated and furnished, so much so that my sister and I commented frequently about how we could just stay there for weeks. The location is great, and the house is great to return to. Beds are wonderfully comfortable, the bathrooms plentiful and well arranged, and I can't say enough good things. I highly recommend!
We were more than satisfied with our stay at the bungalow. The beds, pillows and linens were amazing. The kitchen well stocked with everything you could possibly need. Unbelievable attention to detail throuout the home. Nice glassware and plenty of large soft towels. Very well decorated and comfortable. The outdoor area was amazing including a wonderful covered hot tub. Wonderful lighting inside and outside the home. Wonderful landscaping including Beautiful lemon trees in back.The location was convenient. As we pulled up to the home, the lights were on and the hot tub was ready for use. Owners checked with us by phone to answer any questions. They were accomodating to our needs. I wouldn't hesitate stay here again or to recomend it to others. Thank you for a comfortable place to stay. It's clear you take great pride in your home.
This home was perfect for our family's get together. We enjoyed sitting in the backyard, using the hot tub and preparing a dinner together in the kitchen that was well stocked for cooking. The privacy of the separate bedroom in the backyard was perfect and the house was extremely clean. Thank you for the wonderful vacation memories, we hope to be back!!!
After weeks of researching we finally picked Bill and Paul's beautiful Napa bungalow. As stated by other reviewers, the house is beautifully decorated. Stocked with everything you would need. The entire house was immaculate. The back patio area was very inviting. Our group on a girl's getaway missed the hot tub before we pulled out of the driveway. Thank you Bill and Paul for providing such an excellent home away from home. Highly recommend and we will definitely be back.
