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'.

Spacious and well-stocked!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a wonderful time staying the weekend at the Bungalow. Spacious home, with comfortable beds, and well-stocked with the basics you'd need for your stay, e.g. cooking spices, snacks, and toiletries. Our host Maurie was thoughtful and responsive to messages, which I greatly appreciated. If you're looking for a place stay in Lodi/Stockton area with a group, consider this cute craftsman!

Nice place...easy walk to town

  • 4 of 5

Recently stayed here with some family for a quick wine tasting get away weekend. Nice place, welcoming touches and very close to town -- an easy quick walk will get you right into the heart of Lodi. Cute neighborhood, lots of craftsman homes nearby.

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.
