Napa house description

Napa VR Permit # VR09-0015; City of Napa Business License #26780 **Located on a quiet corner of Downtown Napa is Magnolia House, your home-away-from-home in the heart of the beautiful Napa Valley. Magnolia House is an 1890 Victorian farmhouse that has been entirely restored and updated to feature today's modern conveniences. Magnolia House is located only two blocks from Napa Valley's finest and newest restaurants such as Morimoto's, Celadon, and Angele French Cuisine, wine bars, live music, shopping, galleries, and the new Riverwalk Promenade. Throughout the summer, Magnolia House guests enjoy the convenience of being only 3 blocks from the new Memorial Park which hosts Napa's free Friday Concert Series, and Fourth of July fireworks. The corner grocer is only a block away from Magnolia House, and a short morning stroll will bring you to Sweetie Pies, a local favorite, for morning coffee, scrumptious quiche and baked goods. Then head back to the charming front porch of Magnolia House to enjoy a good book, good friends and plan your activities for your day in the wine country.

Magnolia House sleeps up to seven guests and consists of a ground floor queen bedroom suite with a spacious bathroom featuring a tub/shower combo. Upstairs features two charming bedrooms (one furnished with a pillow top queen bed, the other has a pillow top full-size bed and a twin daybed) which share a hall bath with shower. High thread-count sheets, comfy latex pillows and fluffy towels are provided. During your stay you'll enjoy free wifi, 37' flat screen cable TV with DVD library, a comfortable living area, fireplace with gas insert, spacious indoor dining for 8, washer and dryer, a fully-equipped cherrywood kitchen featuring all stainless appliances, granite countertops, and gas range, and off-street parking on an over-sized driveway. The backyard features lawns, deck and paved areas with tables and seating, bbq, fire pit, and a hot tub that seats 6.

Also within walking distance: Napa Opera House, day spas, antique stores, movie theatre, and bike rentals. Easy access to Highway 29 and the Silverado Trail, home of the finest wineries in the world. Drive time: 5 minutes to Carneros Region wineries (southwest Napa) and 5 minutes to Napa wineries off Silverado Trail, 20 minutes to Sonoma Square, 15 minutes to Yountville, 25 minutes to St. Helena, 40 minutes to Calistoga. For the family with fun on its mind, the local playground is 5 blocks away at historic Fuller Park and Six Flags amusement park is 20 minutes south. It's a 55 minute drive to San Francisco, 55 minutes to Oakland International Airport, and 75 minutes to San Francisco International Airport.

To enhance your wine country experience, we are happy to supply our guests with concierge links on local activities and services such as wine tours and day spas, in advance of your visit to the Napa Valley. Your hosts live in the neighborhood and we wish to make our visitors feel at home in the Wine Country. Won't you be our guests?

Comment from recent guests:

'We enjoyed our whole experience at the Magnolia House. Your home surpassed our expectations and the pictures on line really do not do the house justice. It is such a neat house, the kitchen was absolutely fantastic, and the beds very comfortable. I was only sorry that we didn't have time to enjoy the beautiful back yard. The house was much better stocked than we had imagined, and we ended up returning a lot of items to Safeway that we found we did not need. I especially want to tell you how much I appreciated how easy you made the whole transaction. It was just terrific in every way.'

--N. Starr, Ft. Myers, FL

'My friends and I had a fantastic time and we all loved the house! I have stayed in other rentals and yours was by far the best stocked, and the kitchen was great. I am definitely going to pass the information on to others about Magnolia House.'

--C. Sharp, San Diego, CA

                              About the owner: Suzy Ballesteros

                              Why the Owner Chose Napa:
                              Since 2008, Suzy Ballesteros has owned and operated Magnolia House, the Napa vacation rental home situated closest to downtown Napa's dining and shopping district. Yet despite its convenient distance to town, the home is located on a quiet residential block, boasting lovely bed & breakfast mansions. The host's goal is to meet the needs of their traveling guests by keeping a well-stocked home with updated amenities that one would expect to find in one's own home, making the property, truly, a home-away-from-home!
