BJ'S Comfortable Retreat

  • 4 of 5

Your host at this very accommodating, friendly, and knowledgable about the various restaurants and sites in the beautiful Napa Valley area. Barbara has carefully reviewed the local areas in her up to date travelers guide book with great accuracy so you can visit the area with complete confidence knowing that you made the right choice for food and beverage. BJ'S Nest is also great retreat at the end of the day after traveling to the numerous wineries and and shops. We brought our small Australian Shepherd dog with us and Barbara made us feel right at home immediately upon a arrival. Her attached and very clean studio has all the comforts of home with a spacious bathroom, eating area, and bedroom. You are certain to have a quiet evening so you can awake refreshed and begin a new day in one of the most scenic and prized wine growing regions of the United States of America. Thanks Barbara for your gracious help in making our stay in Napa a memorable occasion!

Perfect for a Wine Trip!

  • 5 of 5

Great location, just outside of downtown and on the edge of main road(s) of wineries. BIG bathroom with an awesome jetted tub. The kitchenette has just the right items; fridge, cups, wine opener! It’s obvious the owner has put a lot of work into the property and maintains it inside and out.

The space is the downstairs of a house, the stairs have been walled off. The owner lives upstairs. I was able to hear noises from upstairs, walking around, tv/talking, and the doorbell, but it wasn’t an issue as another reviewer stated. The sounds are muted, I could hear there was talking/tv but could not understand words.

If you want total seclusion away from everything, spend about 4x as much to stay out of the city. But you’ll miss the perfect relaxation at the end of a hard day of wine tasting soaking in the hot tub nestled among giant trees.

Cozy and warm spot in the heart of Napa!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful getaway! Barbara was so accommodating to us for things we needed to use or borrow. My boyfriend and I had a great time and this place was ideal to stay. Studio has a huge bathroom and plenty of space for two people to spread out. This place is just charming and affordable rates for the area. I would happily recommend to anyone to stay here while in the Napa area.

Great Get-Away Spot

  • 5 of 5

Great location and views. Just the kind of non-hotel property we were looking for. Plenty of space and great little deck/backyard view. Barbara was very friendly and easy to communicate with.

Thanks Barbra, we had a wonderful stay at your loft. Our first time out of a hotel stay, and it did not disappoint. Pictures sometimes can be misleading, but everything met or exceeded our expectations. Clean, comfortable, and well appointed. We will certainly recommend the loft to friends and relatives planning a Napa retreat!

What an awesome place!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed here on a quick trip to Napa, and it was amazing! It is not right in the heart of downtown, but it was a very quick drive (or cheap uber) to downtown as well as many wineries. After a day of wine tasting there was nothing better than soaking in the hot tub. Barbara was such a gracious host, as well as being extremely respectful of privacy. And the apartment had everything you could need. I would highly recommend to anybody wanting a relaxing stay in Napa, and we cannot wait until we have the opportunity to return!

Thanks again Barbara!

Located on the Silverado Trail, city limits, within 5 minutes from downtown Napa. 1/2 acre of property, spacious gardens, abundance of trees. Feels like being in the country, yet so close to restaurants, wine tasting, & theatre.
