About Kim Gauer

We are the owners of the "Napa Art House" in downtown Napa. Joel grew up in Napa and Kathy is an artist whose work can be seen throughout the home. Their fondness for color and comfort is obvious in the casual furnishings and attention to detail that makes this home a special place. They are happy to share their love of the Napa Valley by making your stay as enjoyable and fun as possible.

The "Napa Art House" is one of only 42 legally permitted "whole-house" vacation rental homes in Napa (permit #VR09-0001).

Kim Gauer purchased this house in 2016

Why Kim Gauer chose Napa County

The Napa Art House is perfectly located for visitors to the Napa Valley. It is walking distance to Old Town Napa and less than a mile from Hwy 29 for access to the rest of the Valley.

What makes this house unique

The Napa Art House was built in 1920. It has all the charm and character of an original Craftsman house but also offers all the comforts and amenities that modern technology can provide. There is a beautiful and private back yard with a separate studio where you can work or relax after a hard day of wine tasting.

Charming Craftsman-style House!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED our stay at The Napa Art House! There was ample room for 8 adults; the house is much larger than we thought by looking at the photos. Keys were available to check ourselves in, and a welcome bottle of wine was chilling in the fridge. There are plenty of dishes and wine glasses, along with cooking utensils, pots, pans, and basic herbs and spices. The yard is beautiful, with a darling office building in the backyard. The hot tub was perfect for 8 of us! Once the doors are closed at night, it is very quiet. No neighborhood noise, and we never heard the property manager, who has an apartment in the upstairs of the house (she didn't hear us, either, despite our giggling into the night!). Although Kim did offer to take our photo on the porch as she was coming out one day! She was very patient with us and took several photos. She was kind and friendly. In communicating before the stay, she was prompt in getting back to me. This was a great place for 8 girlfriends to have a reunion. If we come to Napa again, we will definitely book this property again! Thank you!

Absolutely beautiful, very comfortable and convenient location!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Napa Art house for an absolutely perfect weekend! Also, our group split up at one point and ended up needing an extra key. The property manager was extremely sweet and accommodating in getting us an extra one--she really went above and beyond.

Thank you again for sharing your beautiful home with us!
