Overview

About the property

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 tastefully restored and updated to feature today's modern conveniences, and has been well-stocked and equipped to provide our traveling guests with everything they would need to make it the perfect home base while they explore all that Wine Country has to offer.

Magnolia House guests enjoy the convenience of being a short walk to the Napa River and the Riverwalk Shopping and Dining District. Enjoy being steps away from 5-star dining, live music, wine bars, shopping, and galleries. The Oxbow Market is also a short walk from Magnolia House, or rent a bike at Velo, 3 blocks from the house, and 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, Forge Pizza, 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 welcoming, spacious back 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: some Napa favorites are Morimoto's, Angele, Cole's Chop House, Napkins, Celadon, Allegria's, Napkins, ZuZus. (Dining and winery maps and guides are provided at the house.) 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 sleeps up to seven adult guests and 2 children 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 washer/dryer with detergent provided. 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 (baths furnished with hair dryers and plenty of extra towels). We furnish Magnolia House with high thread-count sheets, comfy latex as well as soft man-made faux down pillows, and fresh towels, as well as bath sheets for out guests using the spa, and all of the paper goods and detergents you would expect to have in your own home--toilet paper, paper towels, napkins, soaps and shampoos, etc. During your stay, you'll enjoy free wifi, a new 43"' flat screen cable TV with a DVD library, central A/C and ceiling fans throughout, a comfortable living area, wood~burning fireplace, spacious indoor dining for 8, a fully-equipped cherrywood kitchen featuring all stainless appliances, granite countertops, and gas range. The kitchen is well stocked with everything one might need to cook including most condiments, spices, coffee supplies, as well as some staple food items. 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, a corn hole bean bag game, and a hot tub that seats up to 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. For the family with fun on its mind, the local playground is 5 blocks away at historic Fuller Park and Six Flags amusement park is 20 minutes south. It's a 55 minute drive to San Francisco, 55 minutes to Oakland International Airport, and 75 minutes to San Francisco International Airport.

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.**

To enhance your wine country experience, we are happy to supply our guests with concierge links on local activities and services such as wine tours and day spas, in advance of your visit to the Napa Valley.

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 ideally located on a quiet residential block, boasting lovely bed & breakfast mansions. The host's goal is to meet the needs of her 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.

Charming and beautifully kept home in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

Charming and beautifully kept home in a great location. Even though we did not physically have a host, we instantly felt at home and welcomed. The house was very clean, perfect size for six guests, it included all the amenities you except and then some. Located in a beautiful neighborhood, about a 5 min walk to downtown. The backyard is amazing, it quickly became our early morning coffee/late night wine private oasis. We are already planning our next trip to Napa and hope to stay here again!

We're glad you were able to enjoy the back garden during your stay, as we strive to maintain the gardens and amenities so as to be as inviting and comfortable as possible. When it comes to equipping and furnishing the house, we try to think of everything so that YOU don't have to~~just step in, relax, rejuvenate and enjoy! It was our pleasure to be able to share our slice of Wine Country with you and we'd love to have you stay with us again should your travels bring you back to Napa.

We Love Magnolia House!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of five adults stayed at Magnolia House when we were in Napa for a family wedding. We found it to be welcoming, cozy and the perfect place for our group to stay -- way less cramped, way more comfortable than hotel rooms. Highly recommended for any groups travelling to Napa!

Perfect location and great home!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect house for our girls weekend. Everything was clean and well taken care of, all of the amenities you could want were included, and the back yard is truly a little oasis! The location was amazing too, just a short walk to everything in downtown Napa which is perfect for a wine weekend. We would definitely book this home again!

This charming home was a perfect spot for our girls' getaway weekend! The beds were comfy, kitchen well stocked and the backyard is beautiful! We loved the hot tub every night and the mornings! Location is within easy walking distance to downtown Napa . We loved grabbing breakfast at Sweetie Pies, a few blocks away, before starting our wine tasting! Suzy was so helpful with all of her recommendations! We would definitely stay here again :)

Great weekend with Girlfriends

  • 5 of 5

Just wanted to thank Suzy for having such a great place. We loved the location. The house was easy to find. It was full of charm and have just enough space for our group of 6. Kitchen was comfy and fully stocked. Dining/Living room area made a great gathering place. We would have loved to use the outside but it was a wet rainy weekend! Overall a great find and we are really hoping we can stay here again next year.
