Guestbook comments from the owner

I sent this out to a while ago and hadn't heard back so I double checked and I did not send it out. Sorry.

" I am a hotel snob. I stay at 4 and 5 star hotels exclusively. I have rejected the idea of VBRO many times. This trip, I was beaten into compliance by my wife and adult children. Everybody wanted to stay in a house in Napa. I was sure this this was a bad idea. I was sure the booking would not go as planned or the house would be just dreadful. Oh my possibilities were endless for the coming disaster...

I was wrong, I was wrong on all fronts. Not easy to admit. Booking was flawless. Must be a trick. I was really wrong on this one. The house was so comfortable. Everything was neat and clean. Bedrooms were well done. It was obvious somebody cares about this house. There were 6 of us and we never ran out of dishes, utensils or towels. I had my own small vineyard. I wanted everyone to call me Don Leandro but they respect. I can't say enough good things about Chris and Kat . They communicated with me perfectly. I had many questions. They had answers and quick answers too. This adventure could not have been any better. Lee"

Smokey Napa trip

  • 5 of 5

We were up there during the fires. The home was very nice like at the decorations and all of the bedrooms were very comfortable. We managed well with the tiny kitchen. Updating the TVs and cable is needed (not high def).

We throughly enjoyed our stay at this house. It was convenient to restaurants and food shopping.

  • 5 of 5

The property was very clean and had all the amenities needed for a comfortable stay. The only exception was the Master Bedroom tub/shower combination. Once the shower curtain is closed there was very little room to move. The plastic curtain stuck to you. Made for a very frustrating shower. Maybe a hand held shower would improve the experience. Chris and Kat showed great concern for our comfort during the recent heatwave. Thank you for that!

Owner's Response: Hi Pam, We received this additional review from you through VRBO and for some reason they did not include it in your public post. Thank you so much! Your additional comments… “I would like to thank you for being such responsible, caring property owners. The thoughtfulness you should regarding our comfort concerning the blistering heat and turning on the air conditioners while we we gone for the day was more than appreciated. We would not hesitate to stay at this property again. We would happily recommend it to any of our friends thinking of going to Napa.” Pam Z We are sorry you had an issue with the shower curtain. We went there right away to check it out as we have housekeeping change the shower curtain liner on a regular basis. We discovered they put a very light liner without any magnets this time. That was an easy fix…voila !! It is already changed with a heavy liner with magnets. Our guests love that huge original claw and ball tub so we kept it as a tub and shower combo – they don’t make them like that anymore… 5 1/2 feet by 2 ½ feet and 19” in depth… makes for a great champagne bath and soaking tub with water that actually covers your whole body. The other bathroom does have a new glass enclosed tiled shower. Thanks for letting us know. Best, Chris and Kat

Great central Napa location, has lots of character!

  • 5 of 5

This 112 year old property has been nicely refinished, while still maintaining its character. There is a relatively open floor plan. It is close to the center of Napa with easy accessibility. The kitchen has new appliances - at the time of our stay the refrigerator's water supply had not even been hooked up yet. The beds were quite comfortable. The main bathroom has an old claw foot tub with a shower, while the other bathroom has a newer shower unit. We enjoyed exploring Napa and the surrounding countryside from this beautiful location.

Had a good overall experience.

  • 4 of 5

Good host, home was good except for one of the bathrooms that was between 2 rooms. One had to go thru the bedrooms to get to the bathroom. Some of the doors were squeaky. Overall my family had a good time.

Owner's Response: Thank you. Glad the house worked well for your wedding guests - wish you could have stayed there. The actual configuration is that there is an option of having a 2nd master en-suite…so it is a bedroom and full bathroom. The other master can be a private en-suite or it can be used as a main bathroom (Jack ‘n Jill bathroom) from the hall…you simply lock one of the two doors. Our guests love that flexibility. Glad our new tank-less water heaters stepped up to the plate providing ample hot water for such a large group.
