About Kat

I have lived in Napa Valley since the early 80's and have raised my daughter in a beautiful, friendly safe environment. My yard is my Art! Started out with weeds and now have developed rooms in the backyard. Patio dining, secret garden, 8 organic veggie beds, twilight lounging spa. I have 3 outdoor kittys that love to chase the squirrels. My career was in Real Estate since 1988. Now I am living my purpose as a teacher of Yoga. I love to travel and am drawn to the ocean.

Kat purchased this house in 2001

Why Kat chose Napa Valley

Very charming, clean private home close to downtown Napa. This is my personal home so cared for with much attention to detail. Fully stocked, high end kitchen with spices, oils etc to share. Garden setting is very special and private.

What makes this house unique

Quiet location, large private yard with 8 veggie garden beds, fruit trees, massive oak & redwood trees.

Located south end of Napa Valley so close to downtown Sonoma as well.

Fabulous Zen Home

  • 5 of 5

This Home was more beautiful than pictured. We rented for the Napa to Sonoma Half Marathon run- the location was great- easy to get to all the main roads. After we ran the half it was perfect to come back to the house and soak in the Hot Tub and nap. The garden was so peaceful and the chimes and the cool air- just blissful. We toured wineries and ate at most of the downtown Napa eateries - again wonderful location and easy to get everywhere. We did go to Oxbow market and pick up fresh food and veggies one night and prepared in her nice well equipped kitchen! Her home was comfortable and relaxing and airy and just imbued with the restful nature and love of outdoors you get being in Napa. Easy drive to Sonoma also for further sightseeing. I want to return and bring my grown daughters for a Girls weekend!

Charming, Peaceful Home

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, spacious and charming home in the heart of Napa. Great location - close to downtown, but quiet and peaceful. Home is beautifully appointed with a well equipped kitchen. Our hostess was welcoming and available for any questions. Would highly recommend this home for anyone seeking calm, quiet and peaceful accommodations in Napa. And the garden is a true delight. Obviously a labor of love.

Perfect weekend retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband, young son and I absolutely adored our 3 night stay at this most peaceful, bright sunny home. Large space - inside and out! We most enjoyed "exploring" around the garden and playing badminton on the charming outdoor court! The hot tub as well is simply delightful. My son loved feeding the 3 (outdoor) cats every morning. Kathy was so nice and easy to work with. We felt right at home. We hope to be back SOON for more relaxation and Napa sunshine.

Great Home

  • 5 of 5

The home was lovely and worked out great for our girls wine weekend. It was in a nice, central location to the wineries we visited and the downtown area. Plenty of space to make your own meals in the home.

Absolutely amazing stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

The property is located in a very quiet residential area. The inside is warm and very welcoming. The huge space provided us (6 people) of more than enough spare to sit together and catch up. The outside space is bigger than what you see in the photos. The garden is sweet and there’s plenty of space in the patio.

The owner, Kathy, was very easy to talk to… no fuss and no frills. We enjoyed the place and would surely be back.

To Kathy - thank you for entrusting us with your home. We enjoyed every minute of stay and hope to meet you next time.

The Zen House!

  • 5 of 5

The photos do not do this house justice - it's so much warmer & vibrant - the vibe is amazing!

We came here (5 of us) for girl time & 3 birthdays to celebrate and we ended up spending some quality time "at home" - and home is how this place makes you feel. Immediately.

The house itself is warm & inviting with plenty of room to sit together or to drift off to gather your thoughts in your own space. There's a nice long dining table that invites you to break bread and enjoy good food & company.

The exterior is beautiful and peaceful with several gardens to wander into and sit with. My personal favorite is the large fig tree in the back corner with the tree stump benches all around. Oddly enough I didn't photograph it, just enjoyed sitting there one morning.

The house is situated close to shopping & restaurants so we had an easy time getting out & around.

While we never met in person, Kathy, the owner, was very pleasant to speak with and make arrangements with. Lovely woman who entrusted us with her home. (Thank you for a zen place to retreat to!)

Ah, and as a final note for anyone staying here. There are two very lovable outdoor kitties that will let you know they'd like their dinner (please). They definitely bring a touch of home!
