Our location is a perfect jumping off point for travel North up-valley, South to Carneros or West to Sonoma and Marin. To our front door, it is under 1 hour from San Francisco (free of traffic, of course).
We look forward to welcoming you to Napa!

Dina was a very lovley host and offered us most amenities that would put a traditional hotel to shame --such as complementary wine, beer, and a stocked fireplace. The space itself is nimble, but the large outdoor deck makes up for it. She stocks great coffee for the coffemaker --bonus points.
A quiet, clean spot to relax after a day of wine tasting. Dina was very welcoming and we were charmed by young Jimmy and Bingo the cat. We loved relaxing by a fire under the tall trees and stars of Napa. In the morning the chickens pecked away under the Orange tree in the back yard. Coffee was amazing! In the evenings Uber was very convenient to head into Yountville to Bouchon one night and Redd the next. We are enjoying the bottle of Sean Minor 2011 Cabernet sauvignon left for us as I write this. Thank you Dina!
Dina was very concerned for our comfort, and settled us in nicely, making sure we knew she was there for anything we might need. Very nice central location for exploring Napa, and with Jimmy in the wine business there were some very good suggestions in the book. Excellent restaurant suggestions, nice hiking trail close by... We highly recommend Dina and Jimmy and their lovely home.
We had a great stay! Dina and Jimmy thought of everything to make their guests comfortable.
Very cute and cozy guest room; Dina was really warm and welcoming, and helpful and flexible despite our late arrival time. The little details that she thought of really made our stay special, like how she turned on the heat so the room would be warm when we arrived, had really lovely soaps and shampoo and hand cream available to use, provided extra towels, and - the best part - a bottle of wine to enjoy. The guest room itself is a bit small, it was a bit acrobatic to organize two big suitcases (for 2 girls who love to shop traveling from Europe!) but it was accurate to the pictures shown, so we knew in advance that it was going to be a bit tight. Also, since we spent all of the day out and about, it was hardly noticeable. The location was really great, a 3 minute drive into town (I would say that a car is necessary, though), and away from the main road to visit all the restaurants of Yountville and the wineries of Castiloga and St-Helena, which was great. Free parking and a private entrance to the guest room really helped too. Overall a really great stay, thank you so much!
Our host made us feel right at home. The guest cottage was perfect, just as advertised. The neighborhood was peaceful and quiet. This was a great place.
Jimmy & Dina were incredibly welcoming (even saved us from a freak hail storm with some umbrellas). The cottage was incredibly cozy and well appointed, a great jumping off point for our adventures. We would happily stay here again.
We are New Yorkers born and bred, but now live, work and play in the Northern California paradise known as the Napa Valley! We both work in the Napa wine business for small, family-owned wineries.
