Absolutely beautiful home with European details found everywhere!

  • 4 of 5

Leopi is the most gracious host in every respect! The artistic details in this apartment are found in every corner. The bed and pillows are very cozy and comfortable and I slept like a rock every night. She is most generous in supplying a bottle of wine, snacks, and some simple but delicious items in the refrigerator to make a breakfast; fresh eggs, wheat bread, ghee and homemade lemon curd which was fabulous!

The European from top to bottom complete with a bidet.

I'm a country girl so I did find the neighborhood a challenge for me or this would have gotten 10 stars. It truly is the most beautiful VRBO I've stayed in...thanks Leopi!

Warm Home by the Water

  • 5 of 5

The place was great! Super quick drive up to Napa which was nice, but also conveniently close to my friends in the East Bay. Very clean and modern feel. Stayed for about a week so the washer dryer definitely came in handy as well ;) Definitely be back next time I visit the Bay.
