Napa House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)


Napa Vacation Rental License No. VR09-0012. City of Napa Business License No. 26850.

Fully refreshed 2700 square foot home with open floor plan; vaulted ceilings, and lots of windows to open view to garden and oak-studded hills. Very large flagstone patio with dining for 12, hot tub, and gazebo which provides a beautiful garden setting for entertaining and relaxation.

As you can see, the property receives excellent reviews, is located in an exclusive neighborhood and woodsy neighborhood, and has a great open floor plan for gathering with friends and family both inside and out.

About The Owner

I originally redesigned this home for raising my children and relaxing with friends. I've since remarried and moved elsewhere in the Napa Valley, but I'm pleased to offer this as a great vacation rental for families, or other groups looking for a modestly priced, high quality home. Here's a note I recently received from one of my renters: 'Chuck. Thank you very much for letting me rent your property on Montecito Napa - it was a wonderful place to have our family gather for a long weekend together and a great location for our wine tasting ventures....your home is beautifully furnished and the floor-plan provided comfortable space for our family of nine to visit, dine, sleep, and have fun together....the back yard is very private, serene, and a perfect place for having a barbeque, for socializing, and for enjoying the hot short, we could not have found a better place for our family gathering....again, thanks for allowing us to use your property! Best Regards, Bart' I'm a lawyer representing numerous wineries and vineyards in the Napa Valley. I'll be glad to help you find the right winery or restaurant to visit, and possibly help you make arrangements for a special private tasting.

The Owner purchased this house in 1996

Good location

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay in this house. The group I was with traveled to Napa for a wedding. The rest of the wedding guests stayed nearby at the Westin, we choose to rent this house. It was a great choice. It's in close proximity to downtown Napa, vineyards, etc. The communication with the rental agency was excellent.

Very nice home and close to Napa

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 6 stayed for 5 nights and were overall very pleased. The house is well furnished and the kitchen is well equipped if you choose to cook. The backyard is very nice(we had deer in it one night)The location is great since it is close to the city of Napa and all the vineyards. Would definitely recommend.

Great stay in Napa

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in Napa at this beautiful house for a girls' weekend. The house has everything you could possibly need. We were all thrilled by how comfortable the beds and pillows were, and it was great to have a bunch of different spaces where people could hang out. The stay included an hour of concierge services from Concierge of the Valley which was a huge asset - Crystal-Rose helped us secure a driver and arranged for our fridge to be fully stocked before we arrived. The location is close to downtown Napa which is great to check out local restaurants and markets. Chuck and Tina made the booking process easy and clear. Any of us would book again in a heartbeat. Thank you!

Napa vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for five couples! Prior to renting I was concerned about one reviewers comments regarding the "curfew". Based on the price, location, and the fact that all five couples would have their own room, we decided to rent it anyway. The Napa Ordinance regarding quiet times was clearly stated in the rental agreement, so there was absolutely no surprise. We were perfectly fine coming inside prior to the quiet times. Based on the size of the interior, we were able to hang out inside through the night without any problem. It was a non-issue for us. We all agreed that we would definitely rent this property again. Additionally, the property manager set us up with a private chef for dinner one night. I highly recommend if you feel like staying in one night.

Owner's Response: Sam, thank you very much for your very kind review. As I mentioned in response to the prior review, ALL of the vacation rentals in Napa have to abide by the City's rules and we make sure guests initial those reviews when they first sign the contract. Most importantly, I make every effort to help my guests enjoy their stay, and have designed the house so that it is a great place to gather with friends, inside and out. I'm so very glad you enjoyed your stay -- come back soon. Chuck

Recommend, but a few things you should know...

  • 4 of 5

We booked this house for a girl's vacation (6 women). The location was good, the property was nice and, overall, we liked the house. A few things that we learned that we feel others should know about: one of the neighbors apparently hates that this place is a vacation rental. Supposedly he'll complain at the drop of a hat. Upon arrival we were told that we must be inside the house by 10 pm. If the neighbor were to call and complain to the owner or police we'd get a $300 fine. We are adults. We wouldn't have been throwing a raging party...but we would have been liked to be treated like adults and enjoy the use of the patio and the hot tub until whatever time we wanted. This made us feel that we were children and restricted to a curfew. Had we known this (which we weren't told until we showed up) we wouldn't have rented the property. Who wants to get away from their kids and husbands for a week, meet up with old friends from across the country and feel like they're under restriction?

Finally, the owner needs to fix a few items: 1) the shower drain in the main hallway was extremely backed up. It's gross having three women share a shower and stand in water from the person who showered before you. This happened on day 1 - so it wasn't us that caused it. 2) the water filter and ice maker on the fridge doesn't work. We were told the owner knows but won't replace the fridge b/c it still works. Well, 'work' is a term I'll use loosely. The fridge cools but doesn't keep things as cold as a fridge should. We were also forced to buy ice and water jugs. Seems a fridge is a small investment for one who cares about the comfort and needs of the guests renting from them.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay, felt the property served us well - but we would have probably booked elsewhere just for the scrooge neighbor threat.

Owner's Response: As you can see, this is the only non 5 Star review I have received on this property. I'd like to clarify the guest's concerns. These guests, as is true for all guests, signed a rental agreement required by the City of Napa at the time they made their reservation that lists the City's required House Rule -- which explicitly require guests to be inside after 10:00 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. This rule applies to ALL vacation rentals in the City of Napa and is rigorously enforced by the City. We also then send a copy of the signed rental agreement to the guests a week before arrival reminding them of the City's rules, and then my manager reiterates the rules on a walkthrough on arrival. So, this isn't a situation where we arbitrarily tell people to go in early -- it's a City ordinance that all of the vacation rental owners have to live with or be at risk of losing their license. It turns out that a two different groups of prior guests had been outside partying until very late at night which caused my neighbor to become frustrated because guests were ignoring the rules -- which is the reason we have reminded new guests of those requirements. To provide additional privacy to my guests, and for my neighbor, I'm actually in the process of building fences and planting beautiful olive trees to minimize everyone's concerns in the future. But even with those improvements, the City's House Rules cannot be ignored. I am sorry if the drain was slow when these guests arrived. The houses are very busy, particularly in the summer and harvest season, sometimes with as many as 10 women staying at the house using the facilities (which can result in a lot of hair going down the drain). My staff cleans the houses after each group leaves and addresses any issues of concern mentioned by the prior guests, but we must not have received any mention of a problem with this bathroom beforehand. We immediately bring a plumber or other repair person out whenever an issue arises. The reason the ice maker does not operate is the water line for the icemaker broke in the area between the floor and the ceiling of the laundry room, causing a leak into the downstairs. Rather than take the chance of further leaks I temporarily capped off that line. We provide ice for our guests on arrival and ice trays for additional ice. Thank you Erica for the 4 star review -- I'm sorry it was not a 5 star experience for you like it has been for my other guests.

Great house that can even withstand a 6.0 earthquake!

  • 5 of 5

We were so pleased with the Montecito home - lots of light, space and amenities. The back yard is set up nicely for meals, conversation or a quiet escape. But the best news is that the earthquake that hit only a few miles away from this home did little damage to anything inside. We all felt a tremendous jolt in our individual bedrooms and only found one broken pottery vase and a couple of pictures shaken from the walls. We found out that the property manager actually drove by the house around 6:00am to make sure we were ok and the home owner (without hesitation) refunded back the last night we were unable to stay due to concerns for aftershocks further damaging roads back to San Francisco. We look forward to a return visit as this is just a great house and location for touring the Napa wine country.
