About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)


La Casita Bonita is a two bedroom home located in historic downtown Napa. The charming, 1600 sq. foot home was built in 1927, and is a Spanish-style bungalow with lots of windows and beautiful light. The home is centrally located and private. It is walking distance to many renown local restaurants such as Morimoto and La Toque, Breakfast and wine-tasting venues,The Wine Train, OXBOW, and the Napa Valley Opera House. Other amenities include a large, private garden at the rear of the house, a business center, a 42' plasma tv with surround sounds, and built-in wardrobes in both bedrooms for clothing storage.

The home is decorated with tasteful, modern style. The gourmet kitchen is fully equipped. There are three options for dining or entertaining - a large table seating 10 in the dining room, a cozy table for four in the kitchen, and a teak table with umbrella on the back deck that can accommodate 8. Enjoy fresh eggs from your neighbors Sunny and Lucilla our friendly hens(very quite little hens if you were wondering), by reaching in the little door of the chicken coop located in the back of the garden.

La Casita Bonita features a complimentary Concierge Service. If you wish, we are happy to make restaurant and wine-tasting reservations, as well as recommend activities or itineraries throughout Napa Valley.

La Casita Bonita is a perfect Wine Country pied a terre for wine lovers and foodies to experience the Napa Valley lifestyle.

Great house, great location

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time! La Casita was wonderful - perfect location and a great place for us to call home for our long weekend. We were able to walk into town every day and the neighborhood is great.

Unresponsive and cheap

  • 1 of 5

The house itself is nice with a very good location....but problems quickly emerged....

1. They provided the very barest of minimums. There was one roll of toilet paper in each bathroom for a four night stay! There was no hand soap in either shower and three pods of coffee. One hair drying for two bathrooms. A trip to the grocery store remedied all that but come these prices?

2. Also you weren't allowed to use the fireplace and there was no propane for the grill.

3. The manager agreed to provide propane, since we were grilling for dinner that nigh,t we asked them to please bring it by early. No problem they said. Be there at two they said. When no one showed we called the manager 4 times and the owner 2 or 3 times. No one answered the phone. The owners phone was listed for emergencies! Good thing one of the pipes didn't break.

4. He did show up well after dinner was over and mumble something about delays and thanks for our patience. When we told him we had went out and bought propane I think he mumbled thanks and left.

So overall, house is pretty nice in good location. But owner is obviously cheap and unresponsive to any issues. Avoid the aggravation and rent a hotel room. You can get them for what you are paying here and at least the service will be better.

Wonderful cottage in downtown Napa

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend at La Casita Bonita and loved it. The wisteria blooming profusely over the front porch made a lovely welcome to this roomy and very comfortable house. The up to date black & white kitchen is fabulous, the master bathroom luxurious, and we slept like babies in the master bed. We enjoyed exploring downtown Napa, a charming town, about a 15 minute walk. We really appreciated the owner's restaurant recommendations - breakfast at Alexis Baking Co. is not to be missed. This is a wonderful get away spot for two couples.

Very nice, great location

  • 4 of 5

The property was very nice and well maintained. Only minor things could be improved upon- very slow wi fi, no printer access for tablets (wireless printing), no access to garage for bike storage. But those things were minor items.
