Napa house description

City of Napa Business License #27744
City of Napa Vacation Rental Permit #09-0049

The Mediterranean Cottage on First Street, listed in the historic register, has been fully restored to its original elegance. The entire house is appointed with many of the furnishing and fixtures from the 1930's.

Enter this traditional residence through the garden courtyard bordered with potted plants and feel immediately at home. The formal livingroom will welcome you with the sophistication of Persian rugs, built in shelves with books for your perusal, inviting fireplace, writing desk and comfortable sitting area. Continue through the French doors to the formal dining room that is certain to stimulate your appetite for delicious food, Napa Valley wines and discussion about your incredible day. Plan to cap off your day with a game of bocce ball in the regulation sized court off the back gardens.

The charming, refurbished kitchen, with its sunny breakfast room, is the perfect place to take pleasure in your morning coffee or afternoon tea. The bedrooms are tastefully furnished, one with Mediterranean style furniture and Adra’s dressing table, the other with Art Deco Waterfall furniture. A wonderful night’s sleep awaits you in these dreamy beds, complete with fine linens.

Let the last bit of stress melt away while you soak in the deep, cast iron tub. Admire the skillfully tiled floor and craftsmanship of a time past.

                    The Masa House truely is a magical place. My wife and I just spent over a week in Napa and the Masa House was really a highlight of our trip. It was our home away from home and we could not have been more sad to have to say goodbye. From all of its character to its proximity to anything in downtown Napa this house is excellent and we would highly recommend it to anyone visiting the Napa Valley.

                    My boyfriend and I stayed here along with another couple. The house is tastefully decorated and very cozy. The beds are comfortable, although, if you are picky with pillows, bring your own. The house is perfect for couples as it's spacious and the bedrooms are separated by the bathroom--excellent alternative to renting hotel rooms. It is also perfectly located a short walk away (1 mile) to Downtown Napa. I would definitely recommend this home to anyone heading to Napa and would stay there again in a heartbeat! The only "trouble" we had was with the Wifi as we couldn't find the password anywhere--perhaps the owners can just add it to the welcome sheet!

                    We stayed at the Massa House over Labor Day weekend. There were four adults. We LOVED the house. It was impeccably decorated with period furniture and had everything you could want. It was conveniently located to downtown napa as well as Highway 29. The owners were very nice and pleasant to work with. They provided a book with extensive information on Napa and the surroundings. Plus the free WiFi is fast!! We would definitely stay here again.

                    My wife & I stayed here with another couple for a weekend in June and had the best time. Walking distance to numerous dining establishments made every night fun and easy. Very good locations for easy access to highway 29 and endless wineries. Very clean and cozy house. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing trip to Napa.

                    We've stayed in Massa House twice now, and bring all of our out-of town-guests here or recommend it if we can't go ourselves. You feel at home the minute you walk in, there's something about this house that is so welcoming. It's been beautifully restored, everything just seems right. I can't agree with the other review enough, it's so much better than staying in a hotel room. The bocce court is a hoot (even though we are awful at it). Great to be able to walk into town and leave the car behind - enjoy dinner and those Napa wines!

                    We had an absolutely fabulous time at Massa house. Our friends fell in love with it and were so glad we had rented it instead of hotel rooms. I agree!!! The bocce court was a real hit... perfect for after wine tasting and before going to dinner. It was so much fun to have something like that to do.. especially with the weather so nice . Your beds were very comfy and your interior decor was so lovely. We loved the front "parlor" (especially the large windows!!)and breakfast nook. All so cozy and comfortable.You obviously have quite a talent when it comes to interior design! All the details showed how much love and care you put into maintaining Massa House.

                    For anyone that is thinking of visiting Napa, I can’t think of a better place to stay then the quaint Massa Cottage. My sister’s and I stayed for the weekend and we had a wonderful time. We were all impressed with how beautifully decorated the home was. There was so much attention to detail. There was so much character to the home. Everything was in top condition. It was extremely clean and very charming. We especially enjoyed the location. We had a great time walking into town to shop and have lunch. It was so close. It was really nice to have space for all of us. We had plenty of room to visit in the family room and enjoy breakfast in the kitchen sitting area. We wished we had more time to stay. We didn’t even get to enjoy the backyard patio and bar-b-que. It really was the perfect place for us to stay. What a wonderful memory!

                  The location, on historic First St., withing a short walk to downtown Napa and a short drive to hundreds of wineries is ideal. Don't miss a game of Bocce Ball in the back yard!
