Napa Valley House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

License #27744 VR09-0049

The two bedroom one bath, Mediterranean Cottage on First Street is listed in the historic register. This beautiful home has been fully restored to its original elegance. The entire house is appointed with furnishing and fixtures from the 1930's.

Enter this stunning residence through the garden courtyard bordered with potted plants and feel immediately at home. The formal living will welcome you with the sophistication of Persian rugs, built in shelves with books for your perusal, inviting fireplace, writing desk and comfortable sitting area. Continue through the French doors to the formal dining room that is certain to stimulate your appetite. Enjoy a bottle of wine in the garden over a game of Bocce Ball!

Take a short walk up First Street to the heart of the downtown where restaurants, wine tasting rooms and shops abound. St. Helena Hwy is just a few blocks away and will take you to any of the vineyards and wineries you have dreamed of.

The charming, refurbished kitchen, with its sunny breakfast room, is the perfect place to take pleasure in your morning coffee or afternoon tea. The bedrooms are tastefully furnished, one with Mediterranean style furniture and Adra’s dressing table, the other with Art Deco Waterfall furniture. A wonderful night’s sleep awaits you in these dreamy beds, complete with fine linens.

Let the last bit of stress melt away while you soak in the deep, cast iron tub. Admire the skillfully tiled floor and craftsmanship of a time past.

The perfect property

  • 5 of 5

This adorable home was the perfect landing spot for three out of state girlfriends. We enjoyed the front patio, slept soo well, and walked to the downtown for dinner each evening. It was really easy to find and access, and was spotless and comfy! I highly recommend the charm of the 1930s kitchen, breakfast room, and the gardens are beautiful! I wandered through them each morning! Well done owners! Thumbs up!

Very nice, ......, but....

  • 4 of 5

The property was immaculately prepared and detailed as a 1935 movie set. Very cool.

However, the televisions were about the size of the screen on my laptop computer. We don't watch a lot of television, but we like the news, we were there for almost one week. It was an irritation.

Secondly, there was a humidifier, or something like that in the anteroom between the kitchen and basement/exit, that was very noisy and interrupted our sleep occasionally.

All in all, it was worth it, and we enjoyed our stay.

Wonderfully Charming (but a bit humid)

  • 4 of 5

We all love the house. It was well appointed and very clean. The decorations were charming and the beds were comfortable. The only small complaint we have is that the house had extremely high humidity. I think the humidity originates the basement as my clothes that I left on the floor were damp in the morning. Still loved it though!

Wonderful Napa Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spend 10 days in Napa visiting our new granddaughter and her family. Massa House was perfect. Convenient to our son and his family, easy walk to downtown Napa. The cottage was roomier that we thought and was very clean. There is an excellent washer and dryer in the basement and the kitchen had everything we needed. We would highly recommend this property.
