The Space

Come stay at my Napa Valley "Heavenly Retreat"! It's beautiful all year round in the Napa Valley with wineries pouring their fabulous offerings
The warm weather makes it perfect to tour and taste with my local (optional) seasoned tour guide/driver. and then return home to relax and swim (April - November) in this serene, very private backyard garden with pool (and propane heaters at night) listening to birds singing, tree toads croaking, sipping wine and cheese while looking out on a view to a private vineyard. Or wake up to hot air balloons floating down valley while having your morning coffee/breakfast. It's a wonderful way to start the new day!
This bright and airy home with it's high ceilings is filled with light and is a perfect couples weekend (or weekday!) getaway destination to relax and enjoy winery touring, soaking in the Calistoga warm mineral pools, visiting museums (Hess Collection and numerous galleries), Oxbow Market, concerts, NV Opera house or partaking a decadent meal at one of Napa's remarkable restaurants (Tra Vigne, Culinary Institute of America at Greystone, Bottega, French Laundry, Bouchon, Ad hoc, Don Giovanni, Bistro Jeanty, Fish Story, Morimotos, etc).
Get a good night's rest in your very private guest room in the ample king-sized bed with high thread count Egyptian cotton linens, and a silk down comforter. Enjoy your private ensuite bathroom and wrap yourself in luxurious towels after a 'couples' shower. Your bedroom has cable TV, a docking station for your IPOD, and you can always access high speed WiFi . Possibility of renting the extra queen (open loft) suite with balcony and chairs overlooking the vineyard if you have another couple that wants to stay. The second couple (your friends) will be charged only $135 per night. You will need to share the one bathroom. (And no, I will never rent the loft to someone you don't know at the same time you are staying in the luxury guest suite.) And yes......wine and appetizers will be waiting for you when you arrive (as will my adorable and loving Akita therapy dog --- Kody!)

So, hit the 'book it' button and experience Napa Valley as you should and as the sign says in the guest room : "...and they all lived happily ever after".

  • Blissful Napa Valley home from home. Judith really is a star, making you feel totally pampered. Helping with excellent 5 star recommendations for food
    loves like Jeanette and I.

    Judith has a lovely home, exactly as pictured, light airy and most of all really homely. Our room was gorgeous, nice and airy with lovely large blinds, the bed was super comfy. The bathroom has Powerful spar shower, with lots of yummy shampoos and gels to give you the full 5 star treatment.

    It was a lovely treat to be able to swim in the early morning the wonderful heated outdoor pool in Judith's beautiful private secluded garden surrounded by native bird song. A real treat to watch to humming birds from the pool collecting their breakfast!!

    Kody is the most gentle creature, a real old soul. If you are looking for a blissful stay away from everyday life I cannot recommend staying here highly enough. It's was just magic. Judith, Kody, Moon and Star Thank you for making our first airbnb experience so perfect. We'll sure be back to stay again soon :-)

  • We stayed with Judith for 2 nights. It was a perfect stay.
    Nice house, nice room with bathroom, nice cats and adorable dog Kodiak.
    Her garden is truely beautiful, next to a vineyard, the pool heated to a very comfortable temperature.
    Judith gave us lots of ideas what to do in Napa. One evening she had friends over and they invited us to eat with them and we had a very nice chat with everyone.
    Judith was the best host we could have imagined and we can recommend her to everyone who loves a beautiful place to stay with animals and lovely chats.

  • My husband and I recently stayed at Judith's home. All previous reviews are spot-on - from her fantastic, friendly pets to the heated toilet seat. Judith was warm, welcoming and made everything very seamless for us. She recommended several places for us for lunch and dinners, and nothing disappointed. She was even kind enough to call one of the restaurants to see if there was room for 2. Everything is spotless, super comfortable and private when you need it. Thanks so much!

  • Wonderful time from start to finish. Judith spoiled us rotten greeting us with champagne and a cheese board poolside to celebrate our wedding anniversary. She is a marvelous hostess and couldn't have made us feel more at welcome.

    LOVED sitting on the back patio in the mornings, sipping coffee, smelling flowers, listening to birds sing, and taking in all the beauty of Napa valley. Coming home in the afternoons to the pool was such a treat! Judith has a wealth of knowledge and recommendations that are sure to please - even for frequent Napa flyers like us. She sent us to a fabulous restaurant we'd never tried and now will be sure not to miss. We didn't just have a wonderful place to stay, we've made a true friend. Thank you, Judith. Can't wait to see you again!

  • We had a great stay with Jude and her beautiful dog Kody. Bed is comfy, pool is warm, central location and pretty much everything you need for your trip to Napa!

  • Staying at Judith's home for 5 nights was one of the best decisions we have ever made.
    She is the most gracious host, surpassing all of our expectations.
    Her house is spacious and comfortable, makes you feel cozy and relaxed right away. Her garden is gorgeous and everything around the house is tidy and well kept.
    We had our own room with a private bathroom, that had toiletries/towels/hairdryer readily available for us. Oh, and the heated toilet seat, it's a dream come true!
    Our room was very comfortable with beautiful silk bedding, ample storage space and freshly cut roses. The house is situated in a quiet street, the only thing you'll hear are the birds outside your window in the morning.
    Judith's two cats are real characters and her fluffy akita named Kodiak is the best dog ever!
    We will be returning to Judith's house for sure. It is the perfect home away from home! :)

  • what an amazing stay! 1) Kodi is our new best friend and we already miss him. 2) the place was roomy, relaxed and felt like home. 3) our host judith was warm, kind and welcomed us with open arms. I expect we'll be back again soon to visit our new friends.

    April 2014
  • Judith's home is extremely clean and well-stocked. Kodiak is as friendly as everyone says he is. Judith was very accommodating of our odd schedule and I would definitely stay here again.

About
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who adores the beauty and serenity of Napa Valley. I arrived here "kicking and screaming" in 1993. It took me about 15 minutes to realize that I had died and gone to heaven. I've never looked back. I'm an avid hiker and love to wine taste. I know the valley quite well and would love to help you set about getting the most from your visit here
