About This Listing

The casita has electric kettle for tea and coffee in sitting area with full couch and iPod dock. There is also a small refrigerator in the sitting room.

Very clean and spacious cottage, check in and out was very easy, would stay again
Cara's cottage was so lovely and was even better in person. It was very clean and we felt extremely comfortable. Don't let the lack of air conditioning deter you, the temp in the room was comfortable at night. We came in August and had no problems with the temp in the cottage. It is very convenient to downtown and only a couple of blocks to the entrance to Hwy. 29. ,so if you're coming to tour the vineyards you will be very happy with this location. If we visit again we would love to stay here.
Nice little cottage and the salt water swimming pool was perfect for unwinding after a hard day at the wineries! Cara was a great communicator and quick to respond, we only met briefly but she was very nice.
I had the pleasure of staying at Cara's cottage for 2 nights at the end of June. Her cottage was exactly as described, cute yet spacious enough for two guests. It is also in a great location - just a short drive to downtown Napa. When we arrived, Cara was out of town but left us all the instructions we needed. She also left plenty of information on wineries and even a few tasting coupons. I look forward to staying at Cara's cottage again!
My reservation to stay at Cara's place in Napa was pretty last minute but she was very accommodating with my frantic energy and was very quick to respond to necessary correspondences.
Her place is lovely and as Cara was out of town the day I arrived, I got to experience the serenity of her yard and pool area alone. It is lovely.
The cottage is sweet and really is much bigger than the pictures show. The bathroom is pretty, if a little tight, but the use of space is efficient.
The bed was comfy, the linens were good, there were plenty of towels and other necessities, and the pool was a dream.
Cara's instructions for using the place were very clear and easy to follow and I was very comfortable coming and going during my two night stay.
I highly recommend Cara and her sweet cottage in downtown Napa.
Cara was wonderful. The apartment was clean and perfectly situated within Napa. It was exactly what we needed and as described. Would stay there again.
