napa vacation bungalow


is legally permitted and licensed by the City of Napa



Important background regarding vacation rental homes in Napa:

40 whole-home vacation rental homes are legally permitted and licensed by the city of Napa. Legally permitted vacation rental homes typically list their Vacation Rental Permit number for potential renters to see. (Outside the city limits of Napa, vacation rental homes are NOT legally permitted.) What does 'whole-house' mean? It means you get to enjoy the entire property to yourself without on-site hosts impacting your privacy.

These 40 licensed vacation rental homes participate in annual safety inspections conducted by the city of Napa Fire Department and abide by a comprehensive set of guidelines developed in collaboration with the city, resulting in a safer, superior lodging experience for guests.

The city and county of Napa works to identify and close illegal vacation rentals. Therefore, if you choose to book a vacation rental in Napa other than ours, please ask for a permit number and, if in doubt, check the permit number with the city of Napa Business Department. This will ensure that your reservation will be honored and available when you arrive.

We’ve created an oasis to be enjoyed -- and it gets better every year. Our house isn’t a showcase of our grandmother’s breakable antiques, that’s not our style. We’re two young-at-heart artists who enjoy making living spaces! We know if we enjoy living here, other people will too. In fact, we love to stay at the bungalow when it’s available and we take note of what needs updating, replacing or adjusting. We’re always improving things and we actively gather and implement suggestions from our guests.

The Property: While the original historic 1906 home appears petite from the front, as you enter the property, it opens to exciting architectural elements and creative, private outdoor spaces which provide more expansive spaces to enjoy. The home features beautiful hardwood and Italian tile floors, vaulted ceilings, original photography, artful touches and thoughtful lighting throughout that will tickle your senses and refresh your soul.
