                                                              Beautiful, peaceful well appointed studio with a tremendous view across the valley!

                                                              Loved it so much I stayed for six months!

                                                              Perfect Napa Stay

                                                              Linda P.Fort Collins, CO USA

                                                              We couldn't have been more pleased with our month-long stay at Stephen and Sabine's Napa rental. Besides the apartment being light-filled and very comfortable, we enjoyed daily sunrises and sunsets, walks into Napa to Ritual Coffee and the Oxbow Market (3.5 miles round-trip), wildlife (deer, turkeys, vultures, fox) passing through almost daily, mesmerizing oaks. Stephen and Sabine were perfect hosts.

                                                              Stunning Location - Hidden Gem!

                                                              Emma S.

                                                              We recently had a wonderful stay here. Stephen and Sabine were wonderful hosts - helpful, friendly and willing to provide great suggestions for things to do, wineries and restaurants.

                                                              The location is beautiful, the patio views alone should be enough to make you want to stay here. We enjoyed several evenings watching the local deer walking around the property, whilst the sun set. The grounds are beautifully maintained, and there are a lot of great, unique details around the space.

                                                              The location is a 25 minute walk to downtown Napa. This is a wonderful, peaceful walk which we did every morning with our dog to get coffee. Everyone is exceptionally friendly and the scenery is stunning. Its exceptionally easy to get around from this location- we used our own car and ubers during the weekend.

                                                              The inside of the property is furnished beautifully with mid century furniture, great art and some great unique details. Its fully equipped with everything you need for a stay and the kitchen is fully stocked if you plan to cook like we did. Its a well maintained, exceptionally clean and very comfortable space.

                                                              We had such a wonderful time at this location. Our friends who were staying nearby at a hotel came by, and are already planning a trip back so they can rent this location. Dont be put off with the location not being directly downtown, this is a hidden gem!

                                                              I cant rate this place highly enough, we cant wait to go back!

                                                              Stay Here!

                                                              Justin G.

                                                              You will not be disappointed! Such a beautiful place, view, and friendly owners. The actual property overlooks all of Napa. It is at the highest point to look down on the town. Very beautiful. The place above his art studio they actually lived in for a year. He remodeled places in New York and definitely did a fabulous Job with this one. I will definitely make more trips to Napa just to stay here.

                                                              Loved it! Way better than any hotel ever could be.

                                                              Perfect pied-à-terre with a view

                                                              Tony S.São Tomé de Covelas

                                                              Sabine and Stephen's place is perfect for anyone wanting to explore Napa Valley but enjoy peace and quiet at the end of a hard day's touring. The one-bedroom apartment above the couple's artist studio is well-appointed and most tastefully decorated. We loved the restrained, comfortable furniture and the original artwork, but mostly the beautiful natural light that floods the apartment by day, the quietness of the neighborhood and the superb view over Napa with regular appearances by deer, wild turkeys and squirrels. The apartment is just minutes away by car from the Oxbow Market and downtown Napa - very handy, and close to the Silverado Trail, the valley's second, quieter, more scenic traffic artery running north-south. Lots of wineries are along the Trail, including Joseph Phelps and Stag's Leap. Sabine and Stephen are both extremely friendly and approachable. I couldn't recommend the place more!

                                                              Beautiful and private retreat. Felt like home, but better!

                                                              We loved this sweet apartment overlooking the woods. Sabine and Stephen were wonderful hosts. Very responsive when we had any questions or needed anything. We both enjoyed making their acquaintance.

                                                              The photos really don't do the property justice. The remodel that they did on this guest apartment is perfect for the space and takes advantage of the natural lighting. We woke every morning to deer in the backyard. And the sunset view is gorgeous.

                                                              Both Stephen and Sabine are artist so you'll find nice little personal touches throughout the rental. We look forward to our next vacation here!
