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"

Napa never disappoints and the house was perfect

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here right after the fires hit the area. The house was in a great location and walking distance to many great resteraunts. We went out every night and never had air quality concerns. The house easy handled all 6 of us. It was clean, ladies out well and a nice place to say. Beds were super comfortable which is much needed after long days of wine tasting.

Napa is a beautiful place and although they are going through a lot they welcomed us with open arms. We were able to have a normal vacation even though the fires were still being contained. If you are afraid to go due to the fires, don't listen to the media. Everything is ok and we had a blast! Go experience Napa and stay in this great house

Owner's Response: Dear Texas guests… We re sorry we didn’t get a chance to meet you all but so glad you had a wonderful time in Napa. We were happy you decided to stay with your original vacation plans … even within the same week the fire started! 95% of Napa is and looks as it always has… you are so right, the media keeps calling it “ The Wine Country Fires” showing the devastation and burned neighborhoods in Santa Rosa (Coffee Park) over and over again on the news and that are actually in another County…Sonoma County. Santa Rosa is 1 ½ hours from Napa . Napa’s unfortunate Atlas Peak fire was part of the Eastern Hills only and affected Silverado Country Club and further east into Solano county. Sonoma and Solano are different counties from Napa County. First Responders in Napa did a stoic job – we are so grateful. Now the media is clumping us together with Santa Cruz under the heading of “California Fires are Still Going”. We are about 3 hours (without traffic) from Santa Cruz. We understand that it is difficult to know what to believe if you are listening to the news. Always feel free to call us or any Napa officials. Napa is fine! Wineries, vineyards, restaurants, shops, spas and every that makes Napa world-renown are all up and running and eagerly awaiting! Thank you for your unbiased and informative comments!

The property was perfect for our group get away weekend. Very walkable distance to many restaurants and entertainment options. The multiple sleeping areas provided privacy and the common areas were bright and comfortable for gathering. The owners were responsive to any inquiries we had.

Excellent location & accommodating owners!

  • 5 of 5

This house was fantastic! The owners Chris & Kat were responsive from the day the house was booked for this trip several months in advance. Our group number changed a few times, and they were more than willing to work with us to accommodate our group. Once the fires hit in October, we were concerned about our trip being a few weeks away, but they communicated what the status was in the area and assured us we'd be taken care of if it impacted our trip. It turned out to be just fine and the people of Napa expressed their gratitude that we visited despite the reports of damage in the area- and really, we only saw minimal damage en route to one of our wine tastings. The air was fresh and the scenery was beautiful! In the house we enjoyed the spacious living area and two large dining tables. We didn't cook any elaborate meals but the kitchen had everything we needed. We walked all over downtown Napa with ease and took advantage of the great location.
