Why Keith and Maurie Jacinto chose Central Valley

We have an antique and estate sales business and had come across this house in disrepair. We had known the owner and this house for a long time and had admired it's architecture. We couldn't pass it up in such a beautiful location. It is close walking distance to everything! We have spent almost a year lovingly restoring it. We have just added another new central heat and air upstairs for the summer months.

The wine industry has grown so much in Lodi, but very few places are available for rent for the wine events. We have are own connections to the wine industry and we have a vineyard of merlot grapes, thus came the name 'Merlot Bungalow'.

2nd stay in this wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

We were in Lodi for a family reunion with our 2 small grand kids. It was so nice to have the park across the street for them. The house was well equipped and we loved staying there for the 2nd time. Such a cozy home! Thanks.

Great house, highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this house was great. The house itself is beautiful and very well maintained. It provided plenty of space to entertain all the guests we had for a rehearsal dinner before my sons wedding, and guests for the day after brunch. The house is well equipped with just about anything you need. The location was within walking distance to downtown. There is also a nice city park just across the street.

Clean and comfy

  • 4 of 5

House is darling-clean and very comfy! Close to town and certainly easy to find. Street noise can be a bit much and BBQ needs to have a significant cleaning or replaced but overall a wonderful experience!

Owner's Response: We had just purchased a new Barbeque but didn't want to disturb you! So sorry we didn't let you know since you hadn't indicated or asked about the barbeque. Thank you for all the wonderful comments in our book.

Lovely appointed home in downtown Lodi

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home as s close family member was getting married in this cute town. Members of our family were in the wedding so we came early and stayed an extra day. We asked for an early check in and the owners graciously accommodated us. The home is very clean and well laid out. The was much information about things to do, places to eat, etc. We chose o couple of them and were very pleased. If we came back to the area I would definitely stay here again. Thanks for the nice stay!
