Fun with the girls for my 40th!

  • 5 of 5

This home was such a wonderful experience. There were 7 of us celebrating my 40th. Location was perfect and the home was clean and large with an amazing yard. We used the hot tub and outdoor area a lot. My only recommendation would be some sort of window coverings for the outdoor cottage for the 7th or 8th person that will be sleeping in that room for privacy. I have seen removable blinds that are easy to put up and down. Overall an awesome experience and I would highly recommend staying here! We will be back.

Perfect for our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the Napa Art House! It was just what our family needed for our four night stay! It was a wonderful walk from downtown and from the Oxbow Public Market. If we had any questions about hiking, wineries, restaurants or anything else, the manager was quick to provide great suggestions! We couldn’t have been happier with the accommodations, which included plenty of room for us all and an inviting hot tub at the end of a day touring the area! We will always have warm memories of our week here in Napa!

Very Comfortable Stay

  • 5 of 5

The Napa Art House was very easy to book and our stay was great. The property manager lives upstairs so had any issue come up I'm sure she would have addressed it quickly. However, we had no issues. The house is lovely. We were able to enjoy the hot-tub. The location is very convenient. We would stay here again.

Lovely Napa Bungalow

  • 5 of 5

We spent New Year's here with our family. The kitchen is really well stocked and we cooked several meals together. We loved all of the thoughtful details like blow dryers in the bathrooms and make up mirrors. Plenty of space and a very private feeling back yard, despite being so close to downtown Napa. We definitely hope to return!
