About this listing
Welcome to a food and wine lover's paradise. A unique, private, cozy, wine country room awaits you in the city of Napa. Comfortable memory foam mattress, historic furniture, close to a jogging/hiking trail & 10 min to Downtown Napa & Yountville.
My house is located in a superb part of Napa. A hiking and jogging park is a few blocks to the west. Vineyards are within walking distance. There is easy access to Yountville and downtown Napa. Restaurants are just a mile or so away. The prestigious Mount Veeder, Oak Knoll, Yountville, and Carneros AVAs are just a short drive away (Oak Knoll is walking distance).
When staying with us you'll get discounts at local wineries and even free wine tastings (I've secured tasting cards at a few of my favorite wineries for you in advance)! Bethany and I are happy to recommend places for you to visit & have plenty of pro tips for you. I've been in the wine industry since 2008 & grew up in Napa. Bethany has worked in wine for going on 6 years, though she did grow up in Canada. She knows as much about wine as she does hockey!
City of Napa Permit # VR16-0012. So we're on the same page... I'm not a corporate vacation rental or anything like that.. The City of Napa has required permits for legal AirBnB rentals. What does this mean for you!? My house is certified safe! The fire inspector, building code inspector, planning and finance departments have all signed off on my house. Homes lacking a permit haven't been inspected by the city to make sure they're not violating any health and safety codes.
Access to the kitchen is included in your rental, as is space in the refrigerator. Feel free to relax in the backyard. We have hammocks!
Avoid the hassle of Napa's traffic & parking woes. We're in north Napa, providing easier access to the less congested roads. I have plenty of parking available, with a spot dedicated to you!
Don't feel like driving? No worries! A public transit hub is 2 miles away with a bus route .5 miles from my house. Uber works great & can get you anywhere you need to go.
My fiancée Bethany and I live here together. We both have full time jobs (mine requires a lot of travel) and the room is booked often. Sometimes our jobs can require long working hours so we might go to bed pretty early. Usually we're getting up at about 7am to make coffee and get ready for the work day. Dropping off luggage is always ok and please let me know if you have any questions during your stay. I am available via phone, text, email, and the airbnb app at just about any time.
Your guest room, bathroom and pretty much the entire house sans our bedroom and office. Need to do laundry? Got ya covered. The backyard is also yours to hang out in. I stress how awesome hammocks are. We have 3 (one fits two people!). BBQ away as well! Oh yes, and our dogs! Play with or ignore them as you feel fit!
Interaction with Guests
It all depends on the day! I work full time at H&A Financing and Services (a barrel management company) in St. Helena. I'm in grad school at UC Davis as well. Bethany works from home and is taking night classes in graphic design. We'll certainly set some aside to help you with your visit to Napa, though sometimes we might not be able to hang out as much as we might like.
This is a very safe neighborhood in a court. Two local police officers live within eyesight and all of us neighbors know each other. Street parking is ample & we even have off street parking available! We're walking distance to hiking/running park, parks, vineyards, restaurants.
A public transit hub is two miles away. Evan's Airport Service is 1.5 miles away. Uber works well too. We even have bicycles for you to use!
Other Things to Note
My fiancée Bethany and I live here together. We both have full time jobs (mine requires some travel). Dropping off luggage prior to check in is always ok and please let me know if you have any questions during your stay.
My dogs can get excited and playful when you arrive. If you're a dog person, you're going to love it here. If you're not a dog person, you're still going to love it here. If you're a cat person, I'm sorry. Think of my dogs like cats, but with personality and compassion.
Thirsty? Help yourself to a beer in the fridge. Not interested in a beer? Water glasses are to the left of the microwave & filtered water s in the fridge as well. Look for the tap on the left wall when you open the door.
Not in to water? Well, this is wine country so you're not alone. Most people around these parts believe water needs to be filtered through a vine and stored in a grape before being squeezed out, fermented, and put into a barrel for a few years prior to finally ending up in a bottle. Wine glasses are in your room & even more glasses are next to the doors leading to the backyard.

Fitness nut, wine lover and foodie. I grew up in Napa, lived in LA, and have traveled all over the United States and Europe while also dabbling in China and Thailand. My ideal Saturday consists of bacon and eggs, cycling, a UCLA Football win, an hour in the hammock and a ridiculous meal with friends in the back yard.
