Napa Valley House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

Situated on a quiet residential corner of Downtown Napa across from stately bed & breakfast mansions, is Magnolia House, your home-away-from-home in the heart of the beautiful Napa Valley. Magnolia House is an 1890 Victorian farmhouse that has been recently restored and updated to feature today's modern conveniences. Magnolia House is one of the 42 LEGALLY PERMITTED non-hosted, whole~home vacation rentals in Napa. We hold the City of Napa Vacation Rental Permit # VR09-0015; City of Napa Business License #26780. **In Napa, rent ONLY from legally permitted City vacation rentals to ensure your reservation will be honored and available when you arrive.**

As a general rule, there is a 3-NIGHT MINIMUM on stays at Magnolia House. (We will honor 1- or 2-night stays if you are booking within one month of a desired travel date and to fill in our calendar.) We also offer DISCOUNTED NIGHTLY RATES IF STAYING MORE THAN 3 NIGHTS IN MAR-OCT---please enquire with your Host.

**TAKE 20% OFF our rate when booking any available nights over the next 30 days! (See our availability calendar which is always up-to-date.) This is a great way to save if making last-minute travel plans~~so much better than a hotel stay!**

Magnolia House guests enjoy the convenience of being a short walk to the Napa River and the Riverwalk Shopping and Dining District. Enjoy 5-star dining, live music, wine bars, shopping, and the new Memorial Park which hosts Napa's free Summer Friday Concert Series, and 4th of July fireworks over the Napa River is only 2 blocks from the house! Rent a bike at Velo, 3 blocks from the house, then ride the new Napa River Trail on the east side of the river, southbound, which will bring you to the new Cinemark Movie Theatre Complex, The Forge Pizza (opening soon), In-Shape Gym, and the Farmer's Market on Tuesdays and Saturdays. The corner grocer is only a block away from Magnolia House which boasts some of the finest meats and poultry in Napa, and return to bbq in Magnolia House's garden. A short morning stroll will bring you to Sweetie Pies--a local favorite--for morning coffee, scrumptious quiche and baked goods, then head back to the charming front porch of Magnolia House to enjoy a good book, good friends and plan your activities for your day in the wine country. Just blocks away from the house, you'll discover world class dining (Napa's best restaurants: Morimoto's, Angele, Cole's Chop House, The Pear Southern Bistro, Celadon, Napkings, ZuZus). When staying at Magnolia House, The Napa Valley and all it has to offer are easily within your reach. Wineries are a 10 minute drive from the house in any direction, and San Francisco and the Bay Area are one hour to the south.

Owned and operated by a local Napa fine artist and wine label illustrator, Magnolia House was completely refurbished in 2005. Magnolia House sleeps up to seven guests in beds and consists of a ground floor queen bedroom suite with a spacious, light~filled bathroom featuring a tub/shower combo. Also, there is a downstairs half bath and laundry for the convenience of our guests. Upstairs features two charming bedrooms (one furnished with a pillow top queen bed, the other features a pillow top full-size bed and a twin daybed) which share a hall bath with shower. We furnish Magnolia House with high thread-count sheets, comfy latex as well as soft man-made faux down pillows, and an abundance of fluffy towels are provided, as well as bath sheets for out guests using the spa. During your stay you'll enjoy free wifi, 37' flat screen cable TV with an extensive DVD library, a comfortable living area, wood~burning fireplace, spacious indoor dining for 8, washer and dryer, a fully-equipped cherrywood kitchen featuring all stainless appliances, granite countertops, and gas range. Magnolia House offers off-street parking for up to 4 cars in its generous driveway. The backyard features lawns, deck and paved areas with tables and seating, bbq, fire pit, and a hot tub that seats 6.

Magnolia House is close to easy access to Highway 29 and the Silverado Trail, home of the finest wineries in the world. Drive time: 5 minutes to Carneros Region wineries (southwest Napa) and 5 minutes to Napa wineries off Silverado Trail, 20 minutes to Sonoma Square, 15 minutes to Yountville, 25 minutes to St. Helena, 40 minutes to Calistoga.

Why Suzy Ballesteros chose Napa Valley

Since 2008, Suzy Ballesteros has owned and operated Magnolia House, the Napa vacation rental home situated closest to downtown Napa's dining and shopping district. Despite its convenient distance to town, the home is located on a quiet residential block, boasting lovely bed & breakfast mansions. The host's goal is to meet the needs of their traveling guests by keeping a well-stocked home with updated amenities that one would expect to find in one's own home, making the property, truly, a home-away-from-home!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Suzy, our family would like to thank you for the OUTSTANDING hospitality Magnolia House offered us during our visit to Napa. We honestly felt as if we were invited into your personal home for the week, sharing all of your delightful amenities. You are so generous, and we would love to stay here again some time. All the best, and, again, thank you so much for all your attention to every detail.

Great House and Location

  • 5 of 5

Rented this house for my birthday, spacious house, great garden and hot tub and only a 5/10 mins pleasant walk in to town. All 3 bedrooms had a double bed which was great as we were 3 couples. Really everything thought of, the house has plenty of cutlery and glasses, towels, kitchen utensils, washing machine and powder, leaflets on local activities, maps and guides, parking. Absolutely nothing bad to say, great stay in a great location.

This was out first time to Magnolia House and spent seven great nights there. Two couples that are both very active and we found the location to be excellent; easy to downtown and to The Oxbow Market. The House and grounds were clean, spacious and relaxing. This was a great way to see Napa and we for sure will be repeat visitors. Thank you Suzy!!!!

Spacious, Well Decorated Home with Fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 6 nights at the Magnolia House and had a great experience. The home is very well furnished with everything and more that you might need. We had extra towels, blankets, cooler and such that made it feel like home. The kitchen was amazing and well furnished to cook. There was plenty of information on Napa that we appreciated. The hot tub, grill, backyard and outdoor eating area was beautiful. All this and a terrific location as well. We did several trips into downtown Napa as well as St. Helena. The owner was great to wrk with and responsive. Definitely will come back !

Love Magnolia House!

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect stay. It was just my best friend and I for a first trip to Napa. The house is perfectly located, spacious, and clean. Just what this diva traveler needed. Relaxation was guaranteed as we enjoyed breakfast on the back deck each morning and evenings soaking in the hot tub.

Thank you Suzy for an amazing getaway. We will be back!

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure meeting you both and I am so glad you found Magnolia House to be such a fitting home base for your first visit to the Napa Valley. I'm so happy you were able to enjoy the back garden and that you found your time at the house rejuvenating and its proximity to town convenient. We would be happy to have you stay with us again should your travels with friends or family bring you back to Napa.

We are concluding our second stay at Magnolia House. It is such a wonderful location and Suzy is so responsive to any need or concern. The back deck is one of the home's most inviting places to relax, and have lunch, dinner or snack. An easy and short walk to restaurants and shops, and wine tasting. You will not lack for any amenity, as Suzy has thought of everything. Many thanks for sharing your home with us.

Great Location to Gather with Family and Friends!

  • 5 of 5

This house was great for our college reunion with close friends. There was ample space with many activities at the house and around the neighborhood. Some of us hung out around the fire pit both in the morning and afternoon. Others went for walks and runs and the rest of us cooked and watched basketball. The kitchen was supplied with many of the basics (spices, olive oil, cream, sugar, coffee) so we didn't have to spend extra on those items. The hot tub was great for evening soaks and fun conversations. The owners were great. Easy to work with and very helpful. It was an easy walk to downtown if you prefer to eat out but the deck and private backyard of the house rivals any ambiance you will find downtown.
