Beautiful place, has everything you will need for your vacation.

  • 5 of 5

This place is cozy, quiet and clean. Has all the amenities you will require for your stay. The shower is amazing and spacious. Good distance from the downtown area, 25 minutes if you wanted to walk. The yard is spectacular and has so many options to just relax and enjoy the beauty of Napa. Barbara is wonderful and took good care of us. Touched base on regular intervals to ask if we needed anything. Thank you Barbara for a wonderful stay.

We are a short distance from downtown, approx. 1 mile, so we are able to experience some space between houses, which makes it so very nice for my guests. I hope you will be able to return one day, it would be a delight to have you back again. Warm regards, Barbara

Exceeded Expectations!!

  • 5 of 5

Kidnapped the wife for a wine tour weekend. She didn't have a clue what she was in for. BJ's Nest met and exceeded all my expectations and got my wife's 100% satisfaction so needless to say, this guy did real good! Barbara was the exemplary hostess and the unit was impeccably clean, well appointed and the layout and amenities were thought through so no need was left unmet. For a couples special retreat, ladies weekend out or friends just looking for the perfect location, excellent pricing and super close to the heart of Napa, this is the place. We would also recommend for wine country tour: Intimate Wine Tours and The Blue Note for a awesome evening of Jazz. Thanks Barbara, hope to see you again next time!!

3-night stay in Napa: great location, spacious, comfortable, well-equipped and squeaky clean

  • 5 of 5

BJ's Nest was a perfect base from which my husband and I explored Napa Valley. The host, Barbara, has thought of everything; the apartment had everything we needed and more. There's plenty of room to spread out and relax; the beds are comfortable; the linens are high quality; and the kitchen and bathroom are well-equipped. Also, the sound-proofing prevents guests from hearing any traffic or other noises, making the apartment a quiet, peaceful retreat. Barbara is charming, and she respects guests' privacy. All in all, we had a great stay.

Perfect place to explore Napa, Sonoma, Calistoga and Rutherfords

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was spotless. Barbara was helpful and available for questions and suggestions but in no way intrusive. The property is beautifully landscaped and relaxing. Soaking in the big tub after a day of wine tastings was delightful!

Place was nice

  • 4 of 5

The place was very nice and a great location near the Silverado trail. The owner thought of everything a person would need away from home.

Only complaint was the inability to adjust the room temperature. Two nights it was very hot to sleep. Otherwise the place was great.

Owner's Response: Dear Aaron & Heather.... It was a delight to have you as my recent guests. And thank you for this nice review. Am happy you were pleased with the accommodations. Am sorry tho that you did not contact me to turn on the air conditioning, so you would not have not been uncomfortable for these 2 nights. This is an older built home, with controls upstairs, and when my guests desire temp to be cooler, they just give me a call and I accommodate them. Very easy. I strive to make my guests happy and comfortable for their stay. After all, I want my guests to return again and to look forward to a wonderful stay! Best regards, Barbara
