About David Bosch

I grew up here, climbing the Oaks and exploring the surrounding hills. The Oaks are native, but my Mom planted all the other trees and shrubs on this 1.6 acre hilltop estate. Now this is our retirement home, and I have inheritied my Mom's appreciation for the land and her love of gardening!

Why David Bosch chose Napa

We have two dogs and a parrot who travel everywhere with us, and they love exploring the hillsides on this property. We come here several times a year to upgrade the property and just to share the relaxed atmosphere with family, friends and neighbors.

What makes this house unique

We always enjoy the quiet tranquility of this wooded setting, only disturbed by the chatter of squirrels and the night time calls of owls. And yet it is only one mile for CA Hwy 29 with access to all the attractions of downtown Napa and wineries up the Valley. Makes a great setting for your next family gathering, business retreat or wedding reception!

Great house on a hilltop

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this home. It is a beautifully-preserved '50s ranch with gardens all around. You can see some vineyards in the distance from the backyard.

It was a great jumping-off point for our tour of the Napa Valley, and I would definitely recommend it for anyone coming to see wine country.

Beyond Expectations

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed 3 nights at the end of May and the house is absolutely amazing. The pictures do not do it justice, we miss the house so much already and we just got back. The owners so great and responsive it makes setting up the stay so easy. They have paid attention to every detail and they give you very specific instructions on how to fully enjoy the home. The house is spotless when you arrive. It is on a large piece of property, very private and secure, it is your own hidden oasis. You are quick 8 minute drive to Downtown napa, 30 minutes to St. Helena, 1 hour to Santa Rosa. Very cool old school charm, comfortable beds and plenty of area sit and talk with your family and friends. Nice large open kitchen so you can cook at talk with people, outdoor heater and BBQ. They have every utensil and kitchen amenity you can think of also!!! 5 Stars really is not enough. Thank you we will be back for sure.

Great Home

We really enjoyed our stay in Napa, The home was exceptionally clean and the grounds were beautiful. It was centrally located for all our needs. The ease of renting their home was definitely a plus. We would not hesitate to rent this home again.

Napa, CA


  • 5 of 5

This home is the definition of homey and sweet. We lived in it for three months when we relocated to Napa and were remodeling our purchased house, The owners are SO fabulous to work with and SO hospitable. The grounds are AMAZINGLY beautiful and well kept. The gate gives a nice sense of security and privacy. Hot air balloons float over on a regular basis and the neighbors are very nice. We lived here with our three young daughters and they loved it! It is VERY well equipped with everything you need for your stay and has all of the wifi and tv your could want. It is a bit dated (as you see from the photos) but the accommodations are super comfortable and the charm is never ending!! You wont be disappointed!

A Vintage Home - And Great For Dogs!!

  • 5 of 5

This home is like stepping back in time.....everything is vintage. Everything from the pictures in the home, the lamps, and the appliances are vintage. But don't let that dissuade you - everything functions perfectly!

We packed thinking we had to bring spices, certain cooking dishes, etc. But this house really is fully furnished. It had everything you could possibly need.

Our dog enjoyed the property. The gardens on the top of the hill are beautiful. If you feel a little more rugged, you can walk down the hill and enjoy the rest of the property. Our dog sure did and we felt very safe letting her wander at will.

I would highly recommend this vacation rental. We will definitely go back!

"GREAT" Oaks Estate

  • 5 of 5

House and property were great, and fit our family perfectly for our Christmas getaway. Grounds were great for our four legged friends and the setting and landscaping were beautiful. Though a rainy stay, the house was warm and cozy and met all of our needs. We would definitely stay here again, and would highly recommend it to friends. Home was very well stocked with all of the necessities and just felt like home immediately. Owners were very accomodating with our check in and out times, and the instructions were clear and easy to follow.
