The Napa Vacation Bungalow - Downtown Napa
City of Napa "Non-hosted" Vacation Rental license number VR09-0023.
The Napa Vacation Bungalow is a unique 4 bedroom. 2.5 bath retreat nestled a block from the Napa River in Old Town Napa. The property consists of a Main House and a private Garden Studio which are rented together as one property. (Note: There is NO additional charge for the Garden Studio - it's included!)
We are one of the 41 legally permitted "Non-hosted" vacation rental homes in Napa. Our City of Napa Vacation Rental Permit number is VR09-0023. (NOTE: In Napa, rent only from permitted vacation rentals to ensure your reservation will be honored and available when you arrive.)
What does "Non-hosted" mean to you? It means you are able to enjoy the ENTIRE property by yourself without on-site hosts impacting your privacy. (The City of Napa also permits so-called "hosted" homes, where an owner is required to live on premises - think AirBnB.)
Ok, we love the so-called ‘sharing economy’ but when its finally time to relax during your hard-earned vacation, we think you'll appreciate having a whole house to yourself without well-intentioned, meddling hosts. Share a good good bottle of wine, not your vacation.
Just blocks away you'll discover world class dining (Napa's best restaurants: Morimoto's, Angele, Cole's Chop House, The Pear Southern Bistro), shopping and nightlife in downtown Napa. The Napa Valley and all it has to offer are easily within your reach. San Francisco and the Bay Area are one hour to the south.
Owned and operated by two artists who live in San Francisco, the home features beautiful, hardwood and Italian tile floors, original photography for sale, as well as lovely, tasteful touches that will be sure to tickle your senses and refresh your soul.
The entire property has been refurbished 2016.
Each bedroom has access to it's own commode and sink. Two of the three bedrooms in the Main House also share a full bath. The Garden Studio has it's own bathroom. (Not suitable for very large persons.)
Additionally, the private Garden Studio offers two french doors leading to its own deck, a completely stocked kitchenette, including refrigerator and microwave as well as it's own separate, full bath.
During your stay you'll enjoy free WIFI, a 44' flat screen TV entertainment with surround sound, iPod friendly sound system, luxurious linens, a barbecue/dining deck, a dining room that seats eight, washer and dryer, a completely stocked gourmet kitchen including gas range, blender, cuisinart, professional quality cookware, mixing bowls, microwave, ice-maker, toaster, coffee maker, plates, glasses, and utensils and off-street, covered parking. All bedrooms and living room have ceiling fans. Both the Main House and the Garden Studio have heating and air-conditioning and provide on-demand filtered water.
The property features a secluded back yard with spa/Jacuzzi and lovely Asian touches such as a huge black bamboo grove, Japanese maples, a water feature, an enormous apple tree and romantic lighting.
NOTE: Weekends, we generally have a five night minimum. Weekdays, we can offer shorter stays. We have *some* flexibility depending on many factors, so if your proposed visit doesn't fit this criteria, please do contact us and we'll review your options.

About Bill Davis
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.
Bill Davis purchased this House in 2007
Why Bill Davis chose Napa
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!
What makes this House unique
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).

Perfect home for our group of 7.
Wonderfully located home in downtown Napa. The house had all the basics we needed, was decorated so beautifully and the outdoor area was a perfect retreat. Bill & Paul were very accommodating and responsive- a pleasure to work with. We would absolutely come back again!
We're happy to hear you enjoyed the house and your stay in Napa! Please consider our place again next time you're in the area! -Paul & Bill
Excellent experience, beautiful house!
I visited the San Francisco/Napa area with 5 friends to celebrate 3 of our 40th birthdays. This house we rented enhanced our overall vacation experience due to its charm, location, backyard area and space for us all. The beds were very comfortable, it was a quiet neighborhood, the kitchen was fully stocked and it was super close to downtown Napa. The hot tub in the backyard provided an excellent way to end each day after wine tastings in the region. I would absolutely stay here again.
Better than home
Beautiful property. Clean and well maintained. The second living space was perfect for our group.
Perfection all around
I can't come close to describing just how wonderful this property is. Everything was so clean and the home was decorated and furnished so tastefully! I was easy to be comfortable and feel right at home. We had such a wonderful time staying there and will cherish the memories forever!
The house was clean, very charming, and a great location. Paul and Bill were super friendly and helpful. Bill has beautiful photographs of his work around the house(great eye). We met Paul for a few minutes and he was very kind. I would definitely recommend this house and also chose to stay there again.
Excellent get-away in Napa
Paul and Bill did a great job with their bungalow. Great location close to excellent restaurants and wineries. Perfect for 3 or 4 couples or a few friends. Thank you, Ricardo
