Live in the Bay Area and have put our heart and soul into renovating the main house and the guest apartment. We are currently working on our garden so that in the future we can offer a variety of home grown fruit and vegetables.

NICHOLA MARTINEZ purchased this apartment in 2010

Why NICHOLA MARTINEZ chose Murphys

Needed a place to call our own and a restful place to retire. Added bonus of family across the street and wonderful neighbours.

What makes this apartment unique

Tucked away on a country road, a short walk to Indian Rock Winery and a quick drive to downtown Murphys and many other tasting rooms, shops and restaurants.

Great spot in Murphys

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay! The home is in a lovely, quiet location and near a great downtown! We found it well equipped and comfortable. Hosts were responsive, friendly and always ready to help. There could be more cleaning before guests arrive though – we noticed the rug had not been vacuumed and there were some spiderwebs. Other than that the place was great!

Owner's Response: My apologies, I should have checked prior to your arrival. My cleaning lady, who is wonderful, mentioned that the vacuum was not picking up so well and because of the Holidays I had forgotten all about it. I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed everything else. PS. We got the vacuum fixed.

My stay at " The Annex in Murphys"

  • 5 of 5

Larry and Nicki were wonderful hosts. I found out when I met them that I knew Larry from several meetings in the past and that Nicki new a lot of my business associates and friends.

Apartment was very nicely laid out with it's own private deck and entry. Great location and close to down town Murphys.

Will go back again.

My husband and I loved this property! It is absolutely immaculate and perfect for two. It is in a very quiet neighborhood and just a short drive into town. Had great communication with the property owner. We recommend staying here without hesitation. Murphys is a great little town!

Very clean and well cared for!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place to get away! Located in a beautiful rural area with plenty of privacy. The owners were friendly and helpful and thought of many generous "extras" to make our stay comfortable and restful in their "in-laws" quarters. Will try to stay there again...for sure!

Great little home!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location. New, simple, and clean apartment. We loved coming home to this wonderful environment each evening. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

We did not miss having cable - the wifi was great. Too bad about poor Verizon reception, but that was really all over the Murphys area.
