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.

Jimmy was great and the guest house was exactly what we needed. His guidebook of places to visit was phenomenal and we used it extensively. They really know their stuff when it comes to Napa! Would love to stay with them next time we are out in wine country. Cheers!
What a wonderful place to spend time in Napa. The cottage was beautifully decorated and very pleasant.
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.
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 and his colleagues were great guest! They were quiet, friendly, had great communication, were very good about reaching out, and left the apartment spotlessly clean. We recommend Jimmy and his colleagues without reservation to any Airbnb host. We would be happy to receive Jimmy and his colleagues back as a guest anytime. Thanks Jimmy!
Excellent guests; they were a pleasure to host and I heartily recommend them to other hosts. Thanks for staying & hope to see you again soon!
It was very exciting to have a guest visiting all the way from California. He was a happy,enthusiastic and positive guy.He enjoyed his stay at the cottage and spending time in the Riebeek valley.I had an opportunity to show him my art studio and he loved the homemade organic raw chocolates.Hope to see you again in the near future!
Jimmy was a great guest! Very responsive and easy to communicate with and he left the apartment in a clean state at the end! Thanks again!
Dina and Jimmy are warm, caring and kind and their hospitality is unmatched. Though New Yorkers at heart, their adventurous spirit has helped make Napa Valley their home. Need a tip on upscale dining, roadside breakfast, vineyard tour, day hike, or a suggestion of a cool watering hole for a refreshing afternoon dip? Don't be afraid to ask. Dina and Jimmy are happy to help guide you. The cabana is a world onto itself - private, inviting and very cozy.
Jimmy and Dina have created a slice of paradise in Napa and they are always happy to share it with friends and family. If you are spending time in Napa and are new to the area you will have no better "concierge" than Jimmy and Dina! They know their food and wine, from the coolest breakfast place to the most elegant dining spot. I can guarantee that after spending time with Jimmy and Dina in their cabana accomodations you may arrive as a stranger but you will leave as a friend!
Jimmy and Dina are two of the greatest people in the wine industry, I consider them both friends AND colleagues. They are extremely professional, talented and all around fun great people. We have spent some fun times watching Gillian Welch perform at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass and they are always great guests on our blankets, so I have no doubt that they would be equally great hosts!
My wonderful friends who have a real passion for enjoying and appreciating life. Napa is a really magical place and Jimmy and Dina know all the ins and outs from a very insider perspective. Wonderful dinners, poker games, wine cave parties, market shopping, olive oil tastings you name it -- all brought to you by J&D.
GREAT, WARM, WONDERFUL PEOPLE. DELIGHTFUL, COZY, EASY, ROMANTIC PLACE TO SPEND TIME. WHENEVER I LEAVE, I IMMEDIATELY WANT TO TURN RIGHT AROUND AND QUICKLY RETURN. IT'S THAT PLEASANT!!
J&D define hospitality and thoughtfulness. As a regular visitor to their Napa cabana, I always look forward to my visits -- not only for the bountiful food & wine that Napa has to offer, but also for the incredible escape made possible by their thoughtful personal touches, spot-on food & wine recommendations (from street food to fine dining and everything in between), and the peaceful retreat they've created for themselves and their guests to the Napa Valley.
Jimmy and Dina are some of the sweetest friends in the whole wide world. We've never met a couple that goes so far out of their way to make us feel welcome when travelling to their place in Napa or getting together for far flung journeys at new restaurants or cities across the globe.
