4 bedroom, 2 bath ranch style home available for vacation rental. Located in the beautiful Coombsville area of east Napa, in the foothills, separated only by vineyards. 3 queen beds and a double futon. Beautiful kitchen w/granite counter tops and backsplash, gas stove, fully stocked with all cooking utensils, pots/pans and dishes. Many, many large windows throughout entire house, all with gorgeous views. Privacy at dead end street and down driveway. Surrounded by the Napa hills and vineyards. Be aware, since we border a vineyard, there are some times when you might be awakened during the night by tractors, or "other" vehicles. Depends on the time of the year. It's all part of the "Napa Valley" experience. We are on a well, but the water is totally drinkable. We have a filter and there is not even an odor.
Washer/Dryer available for use. Solar heated swimming pool, fireplace w/wood. BBQ area. All linens provided.
3 miles from beautiful, historic downtown Napa, with world class restaurants, entertainment and wine!. Uptown Theatre, The City Winery, endless wine bars, night life!
The quiet serenity and beauty, plus location to all the attractions Napa has to offer, gives you the best of both worlds! Don't be surprised to see deer right outside your window! We've seen as many as 12 at one time in the yard. You can go days without seeing any, then 1 day you will see them every time you look out the window....please leave them be...if they make you uncomfortable please shoo away from a distance.
We also have 2 cats that we hope you won't mind giving a scoop of food in the a.m. The food is by the back slider and their dish is on the deck rail immediately to your left, through the slider.

Gerard & Darlene have a beautiful home that served as a perfect home base for our Napa weekend. They left a bottle of wine and some snacks for us, which was a wonderfully thoughtful touch. Thank you so much for facilitating our Napa retreat!
My friends and I loved our long weekend at Gerard and Darlene's! The house is amazing...very spacious, cozy and with beautiful views of vineyards and Napa Valley hills. In addition, Darlene and Gerard and thoughtful hosts -- we had everything we needed and more. Upon arrival, we were greeted with delicious nut bread and wine.!
We loved the location -- easy drive to downtown Napa, St. Helena and Yountville.
It's a quintessential Napa Valley experience and I'm looking forward to my next visit. Highly recommend!
Gerard's place is fantastic for a group. Plenty of room for my group of friends to relax about. The back yard is wonderful with a great view of the vineyard. We were a bit early with our check in but Gerard let us hang out while things were being tidied. We would definitely booking here again next time we're coming with a group of friends.
We were greeted with a bottle of red wine and there were fresh pastries for our breakfast the next morning. That set the tone for a great Thanksgiving weekend. The kitchen was functional and great for cooking our Thanksgiving meal. We had everything we needed. The terrace and pool are located next to the vineyards and the view of the Napa countryside is outstanding. This is a very comfortable place to kick back between visits to the nearby vineyards.
Check-in was a breeze. The house is huge and very clean. The property itself was amazing. It was too cold to swim in the pool but we enjoyed the scenery anyway.
We stayed in the back room, which was probably the coldest room furthest from the heat stove in the kitchen. There are cats that seem to be outdoor cats. During the night they scratched at the screen doors making it impossible to sleep (like nails on a chalkboard). The host acknowledged this and apologized. The hosts also provided some light breakfast and a bottle of wine to enjoy.
We would love to come back and enjoy the house again.
we can't apologize enough about the cats. If it's very cold we do let them in, but otherwise we just shoo them away and they usually leave and do not come back. We do have an enclosed space out of the weather for them, with a heat rock in it. Glad you enjoyed everything else :(
Listing description was accurate. Location was excellent. The scenery in the backyard was stunning. Only negative was that the showers were a little weak.
We have lived in Napa all our lives and would like to share our home! I am a massage therapist here in the Napa Valley, and my wife works for the Napa Valley Unified School District. We have a little piece of heaven, right here on earth, and would like to share it with you!
