Our cottage is located in the suburban Browns Valley neighborhood of Napa. We are approximately 2 miles from the heart of downtown, tasting rooms, restaurants, live music and wineries. 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!
- We are a family living in a quiet neighborhood, please be mindful and quiet after hours.

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.
This was our second time staying with Jimmy and Dina at their cottage. Our stay was great yet again. Their proximity to all Napa Valley has to offer can't be beat. The cottage itself is comfortable and relaxed, with the availability of outdoor amenities (i.e. fire pit) and the company of Bingo the cat. We would highly recommend their cottage to anyone visiting Napa.
Jimmy, Dina and Jimmy Jr. were very good hosts and contributed significantly to our enjoyment of our time in Napa.
The guest house they provided for our stay was comfortable and clean. Jimmy and Dina took great care to provide us with privacy during our stay while always making sure we were comfortable and enjoying our Napa experience. They provided us with use of a refrigerator to store our snacks (and white wine, of course).
As a welcome gesture, they left a "welcome to Napa" bottle of wine which was very appreciated.
Napa has over 500 wineries and finding memorable ones can be a daunting task. Jimmy and Dina prepared a great guide including some fantastic wineries which was one of the basis of our selection of which wineries to visit.
If we ever find ourselves in Napa again, we would, without hesitation, seek to stay there 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.
