What Past Guests Are Saying
April in Napa
The 2 bedroom condo was perfect for a weekend celebrating the 50th birthdays of my son and his partner. Walking distance to the downtown, right across from the Napa River and the river-walk, it was a warm weekend and (for them) a just perfect respite from the cold and rain of Seattle!.
We even cooked on the patio grill one night.
A Napa Escape
Spent several days here in mid-April celebrating my son and his partner's 50th birthday. What a treat for them: warm weather (they live in Seattle!), lots of wine tasting and good food. The condo was perfect for the 4 of us, right by the river-walk and all the downtown restaurants. Very convenient and very comfortable. Would do it again in a flash!
Excellent accommodation, prime location in Napa!
I rented a 2-bedroom unit at villa Murialdo in March 2013 for a long weekend with my two daughters. The apartment was nicely furnished, very clean, and the location couldn't have been better. The check-in was the easiest I've ever experienced with a vacation rental. The owners live on the premises and are available in case of any questions or problems (we had none), but they are not at all intrusive. The WiFi service was excellent, notably better than most hotels, and that is a major plus for my family (and for anyone who uses travel websites/apps for information on restaurants, local attractions, etc. when traveling). I would enthusiastically recommend this rental to anyone looking for a flexible and very reasonably priced alternative to a hotel.
Perfect location, Perfect stay!
I almost hate to give this little gem a great review because I'd love to keep it a secret! It was right in the heart of downtown. Walk to dinner, coffee, wine :) Very well equipt, quiet and comfortable. We will return!
Best Place in Downtown Napa
My husband and I had a wonderful stay in Napa thanks to Villa Murialdo. The beds were comfortable and the condo was quiet. We walked to Oxbow Market each morning and had breakfast at Sweetie Pies. The location is wonderful and we had everything we needed. Thanks again!
Tahoe wine lovers
Great home base to explore Napa
We loved being able to use this home as our home base for wine tasting in Napa. The best part was coming home and being able to walk around the cute town of Napa for wine-tasting bars, restaurants, the river walk and more.
The home was cute, clean and comfy and pet friendly. We loved it!
Wonderful unit, location and overall feel!
I spent my second weekend at one of the units in Villa Murialdo. Once again I was 100% pleased with the experience. The units are very nice and the location is unbeatable. My friends and I were able to cook, relax, and do a little wine tasting. It was the perfect weekend away.
Larry & Karen
Fantastic place to stay!
In the area for our grandson's wedding in Davis, Ca and some vists to the wineries.Convenient for both! From the moment we stepped in the door we felt at home. Nicely decorated, had everything we could possibly need. Loved being so close to downtown Napa that we could walk to everything.
Grill on balcony used for steak dinner on my birthday and grilled chicken dinner for 8 on Sun. Could have used a couple more knives for that dinner for 8! but other than that we had everything we needed.
Lots of info on the wineries - easy access to Napa and Sonoma. Didn't take that long to get into San Francisco either.
Would go back in a minute if we are ever out that way again. They even printed out return boarding passes for us.
Our daughter (the grooms mother) says I should tell you what a great place you have. They also stayed with us for two nights.
Thanks again for providing a great place to stay on our vacation.
Loved the location and comfortable apartment
The absolute best thing we loved about Sandy's vacation rental is its location and on-site parking. it's literally across the road from the visitor center and the many restaurants on Main Street. It made for a very easy stroll to dinner after a day out touring vineyards. We also enjoyed the comfortable and thoroughly well equipped apartment. Sandy provided lots of information on what to do around Napa Valley - thanks!!
Tgiving in Napa
Except for the big fact that we couldn't get the bedroom TV to work, the unit was very nice. The manager came up, gave some excuse about contacting the previous renters who said they didn't watch TV and that was that.
3 Girls from WI
This apartment was absolutely lovely. The pictures on the Vrbo website are dead on. The apartment was charming, well-cared for, clean, convenient to downtown Napa and stocked with everything we needed. It was a bonus to have washer and dryer in the apartment so we could save on checking in bags at the airport. We loved everything about it! Next visit to Napa there will be no question as to where we will stay.
Clean, spacious and perfect location. We really enjoyed our stay in Napa. Loved that the door has a key and went straight to our room with no check in process. It is updated and has nice linens. Kitchen has everything needed to cook but many restaurants are within walking distance. Will stay there again.
Great Napa Spot!!!
My husband and I stayed in this sweet little 2 bedroom apt and loved the location and the accomodations!
It is literally across the street from some nice eateries, a short walk to wine, coffee, more food, shopping, etc.
The apartment is very clean, nicely furnished and well equipped. The only negative was we couldnt get the coffee maker to work (need written directions).
Overall a great place!!!
Cozy, clean and great location.
We have stayed in both 2 bedroom units. They are very clean and have all the little necessities. (Not just wine/kitchen related but also boards games, books and videos for the kids). In addition they are right in downtown with an easy walk to restaurants, shops and the river. It was a nice little oasis that felt like home. We can't wait to return!
Great stay in Napa!
We had a wonderful stay at the Villa Murialdo. The condo was bright, clean and very close to town. We enjoyed walking into town each day for breakfast. The owners were extremely helpful. I would stay here again and would definitely recommend this rental to others.
Donovan and Chris
My husband and I stayed recently at the Villa Murialdo. This is the second Vrbo condo we have experienced. We enjoyed the accomodations very much, and the easy walking distance to downtown. Not much of a carpet person so prefer wood or ceramic floors, but most everything else was very nice. Very quiet area. Nice to have a parking place reserved on the property. We would go back.
Quebec City, Canada
Average at best
We would not recommend this vacation rental. It was not our first pick but we had to settle for it. Upon our arrival we realized that the low rental price was in fact in line with the quality of the property. Not that it was terrible place but it was very average and we had something else in mind. Next time we'll go back to "Chateau de Vie".
Enjoyed this wine country location
Great location in downtown Napa
We really enjoyed the comfort and convenience of this rental. The accomodations were great, and the location in downtown Napa gave us a great way to finish our days after visiting nearby wineries - by sitting on the outdoor patio with some wine and cheese, and then heading out to dinner with many nearby choices within short walking distance.
Home away from home
Beautiful accommodation so close to the main street of Napa. Well appointed kitchen with all you need to self cater. Very clean with comfy beds - even somemtoysnto entertain my toddler. Very nice - would stay here again.
Great rental in downtown Napa!
Our stay at Villa Murialdo was absolutely fantastic - it was so great to be within walking distance of all of the great businesses in downtown Napa (Oxbow, Morimoto, Cole's, etc etc).
The apartment was very clean, spacious, and comfortable, and the owners were incredibly nice and very easy to communicate with.
I could not recommend this rental more highly. Thanks, Sandy!
Comfort and Location!
We stayed at this great rental for a girls weekend. Loved it! Great location, clean and cute, and helpful owners! What else could we ask for...
Wonderful place to visit wine country
We stayed there for 5 days last august and everything was perfect.The place was as it was advertised,clean,near all the activities and the owner very helpfull and friendly.
Silver Lake, OH
The Perfect Place for Two Couples
Villa Murialdo was the perfect spot for two couples. We stayed for four nights, and we enjoyed having the space to spread out during our stay. Also, we were able to cook dinner in the fully equipped kitchen, which saved us money. There is a cooler in the condo, so we packed it full of food and took it with us so that we could eat between wineries.
One bedroom has aC, and the other doesn't, but it got cool at night, so it wasn't a problem. The price was so reasonable for four people, and parking is included. The decor is fine, but a little outdated. If you are driving, be careful when entering the driveway; it's a little steep where the street meets the driveway. We scraped the bottom of our car the first time.
I would definitely stay at Villa Murialdo again! The location and price are fantastic!
We enjoyed our very brief visit at the great acomadations in Villa Murialdo in Napa. We hope to come back and stay longer. Thank you!
Summer In Napa
We couldn't have found a better gem of a place for our yearly visit in Napa. It's central and a convenient location for family and friends from all over Napa and Marin to get to us. It's clean, well furnished and has all the important basics to make it home away from home. Sandy is quick to help with an email or text message. Thanks again for our second summer with you.
Colorado and Mexico residents
Puerto Vallarta Mexico
A great location to walk to all of the great restaurants, riverside shops, and downtown stores. Just a hop and a jump by car to the greatest vineyards in Napa. A very comfortable, clean and home-like setting. The owner has taken care to make sure guests are aware of everything they need to know about the apartment and Napa. Clean, quiet, and private.
St. Louis, MO
Villa Muraaldo condo in Downtown Napa
Location is ideal especially with all the wonderful development in Napa restaurants, wine tasting and boutiques. The condo is clean and is a great space ideal for 2 couples (4 people) but another couple could cozy up on the sofa sleeper. Kitchen has all you need for a little or a lot of cooking
Sugar Land, Texas
Traveled to Napa with very good friends to visit Napa Valley for the first time. Could not have picked a better place to stay. It is small but very clean and convenient. We arrived on July 4th and we were able to walk to all the festivities. The apartment had everything we needed!
Everything was great
We really enjoyed it. Everything was great, the place is beautiful
This four unit condominium is in a convenient downtown Napa location, within walking distance to everything downtown and easy access to the highway to the up valley where there are lots of wineries. The apartments are very comfortable and clean and have everything one needs to make for an enjoyable stay. The temperature was fairly warm during our stay and it would have been nice to have central air conditioning. Otherwise, delightful accommodations.
Grand Forks, ND
relaxing place to come home
Thanks, we enjoyed ourselves so much. We could come home each day after sight seeing or wine tasting and relax for the evening. We would grill out on the deck or just sit and unwind from the day.
The location is so nice and close to downtown Napa that after a nice rest, we could go hit the night life or just see the downtown and even partake in the weekly street fair. We were even able to have visitors come a spend the night.
We were there long enough we even needed to wash some clothes and fortunately we could. We will come back again and again.
great place ot hang out in Napa.
this place is clean, neat, comfortable and so close to everything, we will very definitely stay there again!
San Juan, Puerto Rico
Best place to stay in Napa!
The apartment was perfect. Very comfortable, clean and kitchen had everything we needed. It had a barbecue so we had amazing dinners at home. The two rooms were spacious and nicely decorated. The second room does not have a/C so we had to sleep with our windows open and it was a little hot. But other than that it was great!
Great place in the beautiful Napa Valley!
Lovely apartment, beautifully appointed. The owners/managers have paid close attention to details and tried to anticipate your every need. It is convenient to downtown shopping, restaurants, and nightlife. The perfect place to stay.
great location in Napa, Ca
The condo was well appointed and very convenient to the wine country. The location was perfect for walking to restaurants and shops in Napa. Sandy was very helpful with suggestions of things to do in the area. The only word of caution is if you need the roll away futon for sleeping, it really is a good size for a child or a very small adult, not for our adult daughter (5'7", 125 lbs) and certainly not for our adult son (6'2" 230lbs).
Perfect rental for our stay in Napa
This was a nice two bedroom apartment rental for our girls trip to Napa. We only stayed two nights, but it was perfect. Comfortable, great walking location to downtown Napa, affordable!
My husband, parents and I had a lovely one week stay at Sandy's apartment. The location cannot be beat: it's practically downtown, but is so quiet at night. The decor, amenities, etc. were all great for our stay too. We would love to stay at Sandy's again when we're back in Napa!
Excellent place to stay for wine country
Comfortable, clean, and homey. Close to wine country and great dining close by
Sandy's two bedroom/two bathroom apartment was the perfect get away place for a girls retreat. The apartment location made it easy to quickly (2 blocks) start the walk through down town. The accommodations were clean, smartly furnished, and loaded with nice notes on "how to's." Sandy also provided a list of things to do in Napa prior to our arrival which greatly assisted us as planned more of the details. I highly recommend Sandy's place and when I return to Napa plan to stay here again.
Great location, very clean , had all the amenities, pet friendly, nice patio just all around a great place nice layout walking distance to everything very happy would definitely recommend and stay again
Wine weekend with friends
Recent Ladies weekend in Napa was great fun. Especially staying at Villa Murialdo. Just 2 blocks from great restaurants and exciting nite life listening to music at Silos. Most of all, after a day of wine tasting and a nice dinner, we all relaxed in our apt. and laughed and had a great time.
Thankyou, we look forward to our next stay there.
Bob and Georgia Groff
Villa in the center of wine and food paradise!
We had a wonderful stay at Villa Murialdo right in the heart of downtown Napa. It is on a quiet street but just step out the front door and you are in the middle of some of the best restaurants and wine bars in the country. The Villa itself is cozy, clean and so comfortable. Keith and Sandy, the hosts are very gracious. After a day of wine tasting and dining at a great restaurant, Silos is the place to go for live music and fun entertainment. We will stay here everytime we come to Napa!
Great location, owners, and overall experience!
We had the best 2 night stay at the Villa Murialdo in april. Such an amazing location was made even better by the fantastic hospitality of the owners! It felt like a home away from home.
We also suggest you check out Silos just a short walk from the front door, to watch live music if you can! Highlight of our trip!
St. Paul, MN
Comfortable and convenient
We loved our stay at Villa Murialdo - it was perfectly convenient, comfortable, and well-maintained. Owners were accessible for any questions. I will definitely stay here again. Thanks to Keith and Sandy!
Nancy and Pat Ryan
The rental was so comfortable, cozy and convenient.
We had everything we needed in the rental to make for a comfortable "stay." The furnishings were more than ample and it was so remarkably quiet I was amazed. At all times we felt we had congenial neighbors and a very safe and convenient location. We really appreciated the two off-street parking spots since we had visitors. We could easily walk to many downtown locations, and only wished we had more time to spend doing that. I greatly appreciated all the information for local travel (maps, brochures, etc.) that you had for us. We loved our stay and would do it again in a minute. I also appreciated the prompt responses I got from you regarding our reservations and travel details - I have them on file for next time. Thanks to both of you from...Pat and Nancy Ryan
Charming in great location!
Thank you for a wonderful last minute stay! Adorable villa in great location in downtown Napa! Very clean and super easy arrangements! I will recommend this to everyone! Thanks Sandy!
Everything was perfect!
From the location in Napa, cleanliness of the room, & the layout of the unit was perfect for us. It was our first time staying there even though we have been to the area in the past and I probable would not stay anywhere else in the future. The best place we have ever stayed at in Napa and I would recommend it to all.
Great condo, great location!
We loved the location of this condo, just steps away from our favorite restaurant, Angele, and lots of others. The condo was very clean, perfectly equipped and very quiet. Sandy and her husband were very helpful and efficient. We shall certainly come back again. Thanks!
The absolutely perfect getaway location and experience!
I stayed here for a two night getaway with a couple girlfriends. From the moment we arrived everything was perfect. The unit was even nicer than it looked in the pictures. The patio was great for soaking up the sun. The kitchen (with an adorably set dining table) made preparing food for a picnic while wine tasting and then grilling at night as easy as can be. Lastly we couldn't have asked for a better location. Everything in downtown Napa (restaurants, Oxbow Market, wine tasting rooms, etc.) were within walking distance.
Overall the perfect experience! I highly recommend staying here for a hassle free, comfortable Napa experience.
Amazing location, nice place, but a bit drafty.
The location of this place is wonderful, it is two blocks away from main street (near Celadon restaurant).
The place is nice and clean. The only negative is that the windows which have a/C units are very drafty. Because we visited in December, the rooms with the a/C units got rather cold.
Highland Park, Illinois
Comfortable and Homey
My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Villa Murialdo. The two bedroom apartment was clean, well maintained and comfortable. There were books and maps about Napa and the surrounding area in the apartment that we used to plan our sightseeing for each day. The kitchen was well stocked with the necessities such as plates, utensils, pots and pans, drip coffeemaker and there were plenty of washcloths, handtowels and bathtowels as well as toiletries. The location is perfect as it is within walking distance or a short driving distance of the Napa sites. We felt at home in this apartment and will definitely stay again at Villa Murialdo when we return to Napa.
Quiet, comfortable, efficient and cozy
We really enjoyed the accomodations. The hosts were very helpful prior to our arrival exchanging emails regarding what staples the unit included, etc. We really liked the layout of the condo and having two private bedrooms and bathrooms was really a plus. There was even a washer & dryer available within the unit. The location is very convenient within walking distance to a number of dinner options. It was very quiet!
Jennine & Eddie
Exceeded Expectations, Great Location, Clean and Comfortable
I was referred to Villa Murialdo through a friend and was not disappointed. The place was large enough for two couples to stay comfortably and it was no problem sharing a bathroom.
There are plenty of things to do within walking distance. We will definitely be back.
Also, we booked a mini-van wine tour through Sandy and that really made our weekend even more special. Rob, our driver, took us to some really great spots that we never would have found without him. Excellent value!
I wasn't sure what December weather would be like, but it was beautiful. The vineyards were gold and yellow and the sky was clear blue. Light jackets and scarves were all we needed to be comfortable.
Great location; ideal accommodation
We found this rental via Vrbo; we were staying in Napa for two nights following a conference and wanted something more comfortable (and affordable) than a luxury hotel. Villa Murialdo definitely filled the bill; only $150 per night per couple, immaculate, fully and tastefully furnished, with great flat screen TVs, DVD and CD players and free Wi-Fi (regretfully, we only used the latter). There is both covered and uncovered off-street parking. The locale couldn't be greater; tucked in behind the Napa General Store and near the Napa River. Our unit (there are four units) was upstairs and extremely quiet, a great bonus since we went to bed early, worn out with wine tasting! We wished we had been able to stay longer. The only drawback is the $100 non-refundable cleaning fee. (I believe they also accept pets.)
Spring Lake MI
Absolutely the perfect place!
A couple girl friends and I visited Napa for a get-a-way, and this was the perfect spot to stay! Sandy went above and beyond letting us know everything there was to know about the condo and area. Parking was perfect and was in walking distance to everything we needed in Napa. Very clean, plenty of room for the 3 of us and no complaints at all. I would absolutely stay here again!
Can't Wait to Come Back
We loved the Condo. Not only was the location ideal, but the condo itself was very clean and pretty. We hope to stay there again.
Great condo in downtown Napa
I stayed here with two friends for five days in October and it worked out wonderfully! Check-in was a breeze, the condo is spacious, nicely decorated and clean. It's in a quiet location and gets lots of sun on the balcony. Sandy and her husband (who's name escapes me...sorry!) live on the premises and are lovely. And you simply can't beat that location...just steps from great restaurants and shops in Napa. Only reason for 4 out of 5 stars on Comfort was that there are limited kitchen supplies (i.e., just 4 place settings of each item, and little/no available trash bags, tupperware, or the like). We used the kitchen quite a bit for breakfast/lunch (to balance out the huge restaurant meals every night) it would've been nice if there was a bit more there. But we got by, and I would definitely recommend this place to people looking to visit wine country!
Great place to stay!
Our stay (two couples) at Villa Murialdo was delightful. The apartment was spacious and attractive, and it had all the amenities one could want. The location is outstanding -- just a five minute walk from excellent restaurants in downtown Napa. This was our second stay here, and I hope we can return soon.
Grand Rapids, MI
My mom and I celebrated my sister's birthday by staying at Villa Murialdo and touring the wine country. We really enjoyed our stay at the Villa! It is in a fabulous location to the new River Walk area of Napa - right across the street - from amazing shops, restaurants and bakery. It was so nice to have the roominess of a two bedroom condo with kitchen and family room. It was also extremely quiet. We will definitely stay at the Villa again! We also talked to Sandy and Keith often for tips on wineries and restaurants - they are so friendly and helpful!
Perfect for friends and in convenient location
The rental unit was perfect for friends since so many B&Bs; cater to couples and chain hotels just don't seem right for Napa! The location was in downtown Napa so great for walking to local restaurants after a day of wine touring. The unit was also very clean and well-equipped.
St. Augustine, Florida
Our Month in Napa
Had a very nice time. Location is
hard to beat, good parking. Other tenants a bit noisy at times.
Bought extra kitchen and bath towels which we brought home but left all the hangers we had to buy. Cannot use wire hangers on decent clothes.
Otherwise would have rated it a 5.
Great location, spacious apt with 2 bedrooms, living and dining (Master bedroom with king bed), clean and well appointed, quite (that's great when you have a 6 month old with you) small but nice patio! This is a keeper! Will definitely return.
Clean, Quiet, Comfortable, and Everything Close By
This is a perfect get away. The hosts are ready and wiling to help in any way they can. Wee were celebrating two special anniversaries, and we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hosts left helpful suggestions in a folder in the room, and they even helped with making touring appointments at a couple of wineries. It's a great place to stay and we are looking forward to coming here again.
Thank you, K. + S., for everything.
Mountain View, CA
Perfect condo in the heart of downtown Napa!
My mom and her friend came to visit for a weekend in October and really wanted to do a wine weekend - after searching high and low for hotels and only finding options in Santa Rosa, I decided to search Vrbo, which I use for my Tahoe ski trips. Sandy's place had amazing reviews and just happened to be vacant for the weekend! I couldn't have asked for a better experience. She was quick with returning all emails and the place was a catch. You can't beat the location: literally 1 block from downtown Napa, and the condo was gorgeous. The beds were comfortable and all of the decorations are adorable. Perfect for wine country. We even had coffee to make in the morning and it was delish. Needless to say I would definitely stay again or recommend to a small group or 2 couples venturing to Napa :-)
Calgary, Alberta Canada
It was a nice quiet unit. It was equipped with everything we needed to cook with. After a couple of days in wine country.
We will rent from Sandy again.
Great Location and attentive Owners
My husband and I along with my sister and brother-in-law spent 8 wonderful days in Napa to celebrate my 50th birthday.
Our home base at Murialdo was fantastic! It is conveniently located to all the popular places of downtown Napa, we were able to walk wherever we chose to go in the immediate area.
The villa itself was comfortable and accomodated us well. The essential things for general housekeeping were readily available. The only thing we needed to supply was the food we wanted to cook or to have as snacks.
My husband had planned a few surprises for me upon our arrival to the villa and Sandy was instrumental in making those happen. It was great, thank you Sandy!
My only recomendation would be minor maintenance issues, such as placing towel racks/hooks in guest bath/bedrooms; replacing blown light bulbs and consider replacing/updating pots and pans.
If ever back in Napa would definitely want stay here again!
First Time Napa
Great location and comfortable accommodations.
We spent two nights with my two sons and their girlfriends. The unit is easy to find and located close to so much in downtown Napa. We spent most of our time (when not on the road touring wineries and eating dinner in Yountville) at the nearby Oxbow Marketplace. We especially enjoyed Gott's Roadside (for burgers)and Modern Bakery (for breakfast). There also happened to be a nice farmer's market open near Oxbow on Saturday. We also discovered that there were many other eateries and shopping within walking distance.
The accommodations were comfortable. Since we had three couples, one couple had to sleep on the fold out bed in the living room which was not so comfortable. They slept better the second night putting the mattress on the floor. I think for 2 couples it would have been very comfortable. The bedrooms were neat and comfortable and the bathrooms were no worse than your typical hotel bathrooms. We didn't cook there so I can't comment on the usefulness of the kitchen.
Overall, I would say that nothing was over the top in luxury,but everything was certainly comfortable. The location was terrific for a base because of convenience to so many services. I would stay here again, preferably with just one other couple.
Exceeded our expectations!
From check in to check out a week later, we could not have enjoyed our stay at Villa Murialdo more. The apt was clean and comfortable and suprisingly well furnished to meet all our needs. The owners, Sandy and Keith,live right next door and were friendly and helpful but never imposing. The bed was very comfortable and the linens definitely high quality. Having a washer and dryer in the unit was a plus. We cooked in several nights and found everything we needed to prepare and enjoy our dinners. The very best part of Villa Murialdo is the wonderful location! It is within easy walking distance to the River Walk, restaurants and shops and nightly entertainment at Silos. We covered the whole Napa Valley area and found that buying a picnic lunch at Whole Foods (packing it in a cooler provided in the apt) then enjoying a picnic in a beautiful winery each day followed by a wine tasting worked best for us. Our favorite wineries were Hess and Suttui Winery which has a great deli and plethora of cheeses on site plus pleasant picnic facilities.
The weather and wineries were great in September, and we are already looking forward to a repeat visit and staying at Villa Murialdo,of course!
Villa Murialdo is a perfect location for a visit to Napa /Sonoma. Centrally located,clean and having all the amenities; it is a great base for your Wine Country vacation. Thanks Sandy...we will be back!
My girlfriends and I wanted went to Napa over Labor Day weekend and had a great time at the Villa Murialdo. We were able to walk to downtown restaurants for breakfast/lunch/dinner. The villa was a perfect size for 5 girls. We had a great trip and felt right at home.
Exceeded our Expectations in Every Way
Not a single complaint. Excellent location in downtown Napa and superb accomodations. Very clean, quaint and comfortable. Service was great to boot.
WA win lover
Fantastic stay in Napa!
We really enjoyed staying at your unit in Napa. We loved the close proximity to downtown! The kitchen was excellent - we loved being able to make breakfast and pack our picnic lunches for the day. Everything was nice and clean - we felt like we were staying at a friend's house. We definitely plan to stay with you again and recommend your unit to any friends interested in visiting Napa!!
Comfort and relaxation at your fingertips!
Villa Murialdo is my favorite place to stay in Napa! Sandy thinks of even the smallest details to make sure you have everything you need for a relaxing vacation. The beds are so comfortable and the days just fly right by. The best part is the location--walking distance to some of the best restaurants around.
Close to everything!
My husband spent three wonderful days at Vila Murialdo in downtown Napa. It was great being within walking distance to so many great shops, restaurants, bars and wine tasting venues. We didn't have to drive at all once we got back from our winery visits to get something to eat and go shopping. The apartment was comfortable and had everything we needed for our stay. Will definitely look at staying here again if we're in the area.
Check in was easy. Sent to us a head of time knew just what we needed to do. Very nice place, bed were very comfortable. We walked to just about everywhere. We rented all 3 condos. In each one there was a book with palces to go and things to do. Sandy and her husband are very nice. The live in the 4th condo so if you need anything (which we really didn't every thing was there) they are there to help you. We did need to print our boarding passes and they let us do it at their condo. Would stay there again in a heart beat!!!
Cute condo in a great location
We booked this condo for a girls' trip to Napa/Sonoma over Labor Day weekend. The condo was perfect for the 5 of us. It is clean, comfortable, and a great value. Highly recommended.
Bill & LeeAnne ( and the dogs)
Great Time In Napa
We really enjoyed our stay here. The apartment was well furnished and very comfortable. Loved the Hershey Kisses!
We traveled with our dogs and the neighborhood had lots a green spaces to walk them. You can't beat the location- 1/2 block off downtown and the hosts were very helpful. We highky recommend staying here and plan to return in the future.
Tampa Bay, FL
Great location and value!
We stayed in an upstairs 2 bedroom condo for 6 nights. The location was perfect! We walked everywhere we wanted to go in the downtown area. The condo had all the comforts of home and we really enjoyed our time there. It is a great place to rest and relax after a long day in the valley. We will definitely stay again on our next visit.
My sister and I took my mom to Napa for her birthday. Staying in this cute apartment was such a nicer option than the hotels we stayed at for the rest of our trip through the San Francisco area! The location is very convenient to anything you would want to do in Napa. The beds were very comfy and it was great to have our own kitchen. Also it is very nice to have an "all inclusive" fee!
castle rock, colorado
excellent location and space
great location, helpful owners, and they also treated us to a special musci night downtown. great time!!!
Great location near downtown Napa
We had a great stay at the Villa Murialdo. Communication with Sandy was quick and easy -- all the check-in and parking instructions were sent to us well ahead of time. The apartment is only a two minute walk to the Napa riverfront and its many restaurants. After a few days of wine tasting, Downtown Joe's was a great place along the river to grab a brew. Our favorite place, though, was Sweetie Pies bakery which was even closer than the downtown. Oh, and the wi-fi was fantastic!

Low key bachelorette party
We chose to stay at the Villa Murialdo on a whim because a previous reserviation with another vacation rental fell through, and we thought this would be perfect and we were right. It was 3 girlfriends and myself and we enjoyed our time thoroughly. We enjoyed the location of the rental as it was within walking distance to all of the restaurants we wanted to enjoy and walking allowed all of us to be able to enjoy a drink with dinner as well. :) The condo had all the things we needed to bake and cook, and the beds were comfy. I wouldn't suggest having any more than 4 or 5 ppl in this unit as 4 was just perfect. I would highly recommend this rental to friends and anyone looking for a quiet getaway that is close to everything Downtown Napa has to offer. The Oxbow Public Market is a must!
Cozy and clean 2-bedroom downtown Napa aparment!
We checked in late Friday night and checked out Sunday morning with no problems. No one could beat this location. Right near the river, great location for a morning jog and to grab any meal during the day. It is walking distance for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. This two bedroom was big for four of us adults. The best part was the balcony and a washer and dryer. The kitchen was stocked with necessary goods. Did I say the location was great?!? I recommend eating at Carpe Diem, Grace's Table, and Sweetie Pies. Model bakery in the Oxbow was amazing, too. Too bad we did not stay here long enough to enjoy all what the apartment and the location had to offer.
We stayed at Villa Murialdo in a two-brm apartment for 13 days while visiting family. Well-kept, great location, comfortable and extremely reasonable rate. We were very touched with the complimentary passes for the 4th of July celebration at the River Inn. It is a place that we will definitely come back to for our next visit. Thank you.
"Great Condo, and Great Location"
I recently traveled to Napa Valley with my sister and a friend, we had a wonderful
time. We stayed at Villa Murialdo the perfect vacation spot. located within
walking distance to the downtown area. The condo has features most vacationer
look for when searching for a vacation getaway. The beds are very
comfy, the kitchen has all the essential you will need, the patio feature an
outdoor grill, also two parking spaces is provided. This was our first time in Napa
we had a blast. I really enjoyed the wine tours, met a lot of people from all over,
and once our day came to an end we retreated back to the condo which was
like our home, away from home. The only downside, we stayed only three days,
I wish we had stayed longer and foregone the trip to San Francisco.
The proprietors were very nice and helpful.
Look forward to next year!
Home away from home
home away from home
first time to napa valley. went with my sister and a friend. we all were amazed at the homey feeling of the condo and we were extremely satisfied with the location and the cleanliness of the condo. we really wished we had stayed longer, but we will return in 2012. we had such a good time in napa, but the condo was the best. we were really close to downtown. we walked most places, and we did many tastings in town and took a tour of a couple of wineries. i would highly recommend this rental unit and we will definitely be back next year. thank you sandy austin for having such a lovely property.

Relaxing spot during visit to see family
Villa Murialdo provided my family with a nice spot to relax and have our own space while visiting family in Napa. We loved the location and enjoyed walking downtown each morning for coffee/breakfast. The unit was in great condition and the owners were very nice. It was a treat to have a washer and dryer in-house. With a 3.5 year old and 6.5 year old you never know when you'll need to run a load of laundry. We will very likely stay again when we are in town to visit family. Thank you.

My husband & I stayed @ Villa Murialdo for 7 nights.What a perfect location! We come to Napa area every other year & in the past have stayed at hotels.This was perfect! We were within walking distance of so much The condo was well equipped with anything that we could have possibly needed
Paula and Kevin
Location, location, location!
We loved this place - we were right downtown, but on a quiet neighborhood street one block from the river, short walk to the Oxbow market. We had free Wifi, and Sandy was kind enough to print our boarding passes the night before our departure. If they were to make any improvements, they need a new stereo and new couches, but it didn't hamper our fun! Thanks!
The condo was great. It was so very clean. It was in a great location. The place had everything you could want including a washer and dryer. It was so nice to have all the little extra's even an extra toothbrush, toothpaste, bandaides, etc. The deco was so cute. Bed was very comfortable and we loved the sheets. We will definitely be back.
Thank you Sandy for your hospitality.

An Incredible California Vacation
I was a little hesitant when my sister decided to have her birthday celebration in California instead of in Europe. I was prepared to have a good time, but staying at Sandy austin's place turned it into the best vacation of a lifetime. From the accommodations to Sandy's recommendations for activities, food and entertainment, everything was superb. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we plan to come back with our parents. Sandy, thank you for making this an amazing vacation.
I loved the room, not only was clean and cozy, every detail was thought of. I truly could live there. The location is amazing. I took an early walk to downtown Napa and stopped by the local bakery for a double espresso and a roll. ummm so..good! There were many events going on from music in the park and amazing resturants. Villa Murialdo is the perfect location. Keith and Sandy were very generous and heplful in all our needs.It was perfect!
Felt at home and relaxed
We could not have had a better experience here. Very comfortable and convenient. My friends loved having laundry facilities. We are all early 60's and the steps were a challenge for a few of us carrying our luggage. We enjoyed being able to walk to restaurants. Thanks!
Wonderful stay, great location and helpful hosts. Could not ask for a more perfect experience. Thank you Sandy and Keith!
This is the right way to do Napa
Villa Murialdo is in a great location and a couple of blocks away from downtown. It's in a charming neighborhood and easy to get to other points in Napa & surrounding areas. Our condo was so tastefully decorated and very comfortable. I highly recommend staying in this place, a perfect home away from home.
Not quite up to scratch
The location is perfect for the very short walk to excellent restaurants. The standard of the apartment was not up to the level of the other 3 we rented for our trip- rather tired decor, not overly clean and the use of melamine plates and bowls not what we expected.
A Great Vacation
My wife and I had agreat vacation. We attributed this to the comfortable, well cared for and clean home that Keith and
Sandy set us up in. The home is in a great location, easy to get anywhere in Napa or Sonoma. A beautiful part of the Earth, great wines, a great place to stay and great people! Like I said: A great vacation!
My fiance and I stayed with another couple and visited several vineyards while in Napa. It was a great experience and we enjoyed having a kitchen and staying in one night and cooking dinner.
It was perfect.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Napa. We walked to the riverwalk everyday, walked to shops/restaurants, and plenty of activities in the area for children to do. Condo was clean and spacious. Thank you to Sandy and Keith.
Much nicer than expected
From the above picture this place doesn't look like much. But the apartments are large, nicely appointed and I'm not sure if you can beat the location. within walking distance to great shops and restaurants, even if you are not a walker. The owners live on premises and are friendly and make themselves avaiilable for anything you may need or questions you may have. We will be staying here on our next visit to Napa.
Wonderul Trip! Loved the apartment!
This was a perfect place to stay. Plenty of space and all the comforts of home. Location was fabulous! Walking distance of downtown Napa! Perfect!
One of the best locations in Napa
My daughter in law and I decided to make a quick weekend getaway to the beautiful Napa Valley. We wanted to bring our little four legged friends along so we
May daughter in law and I decided to take a little weekend getaway in Napa to soak up a little sunshine paired with some great wine. We booked this apartment so we could bring our little four legged friends along. It was such a pleasant surprise when we checked in, very easy to find and extremely roomy and comfortable. Beautifully appointed with everything we could need for an extended stay much less a weekend. Since my daughter in law had lived in Napa for six years previously, we both were very familiar with the area and this is truly one of the best locations. A short walk will take you to all of the best restaurants and shops in the heart of downtown Napa including the beautiful new riverwalk complex. The owners were very friendly and accomodating, the place was immmaculate when we arrived and the beds very comfy. We love the area so much and like to visit several times a year and now I definately feel like this is the perfect place to stay.
Villa Murialdo is the best!
Villa Murialdo is comfortable, luxurious, spacious, perfectly located and affordable! I highly recommend this place.
My first stay in Napa!
I am so glad I ended up going with this rental. I had checked a few of the hotels in downtown Napa, and thought the prices a little bit crazy - especially for March (the off season). This rental ended up being cheaper than any hotel I could find, and was probably better in the long run. The apartment was very nicely furnished, very accommodating, and had all modern amenities. The only downsides were that because its on the ground floor you really need to keep the blinds closed for privacy. Also the people upstairs were very "stompy". But other than that it was great. Everything was in walking distance as it is basically right on the end of main street. In two short days we managed to walk either into or past about 20 wine tasting rooms and ate at several very delicious restaurants. Highly recommended.
Visitors from Iowa
Villa Murialdo, located in downtown Napa, provides a great launch pad for a trip to wine country. We had everything we needed to be cozy with an at home feel. We were close to downtown for evening dinners and strolls. Everything was hassle free. We had help close at hand if we needed it but also complete privacy. The maps and guides the owner supplied was amazing!
great Napa experience
Wanting to stay in Downtown Napa, we chose the Villa Murialdo for our two night stay. It was perfect. A two bedroom light and airy apartment close to everything. We walked to dinner downtown and to the OxBow market and we were so conveniently located to many tasting rooms outside of town. I would definitely go back. Plus Sandy her husband are great hosts and can give you lots of ideas for things to do in the area.
Great vacation spot
We really enjoyed our stay at your condo. The place was fully stocked and we had everything we needed. It was clean, had a very comfortable bed, and the linens were great. We enjoyed being so close to everything that we could go on foot. Our daughter enjoyed the play ground that was a few blocks away. We would stay here again if we were in Napa.
Happy in Napa!
It was relaxing and trouble free.
The amenities, location and cleanliness made our stay a delight. As we went about our business and bumped into Sandy and Keith they were friendly, kind and inquired if we needed anything. We had a great time!
Ron & Jan
These units are located perfectly to downtown Napa.
One block to the library (we stayed a month so had time for this) Two blocks to restaurants, shops, evening entertainment.
Well equiped kitchen, comfortable space for eating in and relaxing. Sunny bright unit with porch.We loved being upstairs.
Keith & Sandy were very hospitable and helpful.
We would definitely visit them again.
San Diego, CA
I stayed here with a friend this past weekend and I will have to say I was very impressed! The photos do not do this place justice, both bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. The patio is an excellent place to lounge after a day of wine tastings. And the location is steps away from downtown Napa where some of the very best restaurants are located. I can't wait to stay here again!
Jacksonville Beach, FL
Couldn't ask for more...
The hospitality my friends and I experienced was so appreciated. We had a peaceful stay in our condo which was centrally located in Napa. Keith was wonderful with recommendations based on our inquiries. They also provided a fantastic service by driving us around to the local vineyards so that we could all enjoy the trip together! All in all, it was a wonderful experience and we are all planning to complete the trip again next year...at the latest!
A Very Happy Guest
San Francisco, CA
In a word...Outstanding!
Great location...steps to dining, shopping and most importantly wine! Beautifully appointed units which lacked nothing. The single serve coffee system with pods supplied was an unexpected and pleasant way to start the day. We're already making plans for our next visit.

Walnut Creek, California
Clean, comfortable and walking distance to great shops and dinin
The location is excellent if one likes to walk, a nice walk along the river gets you to shops and dining. After a day of wine tasting walking to nearby restaurants is a plus. We actually occupied two units and they were both very well appointed, very clean and the mattresses and linens were very comfortable. It was nice to find some bottled water in the refrigerator upon arrival and the single cup coffee maker with coffee provided was also a nice touch. We brought our own espresso machine but never took it out of the car. The owners have provided reading material on local attractions, maps etc.
Kelowna B C
The location was great. Restaurants are within walking distance. Whenever we visit Napa again...we plan on staying here.
Beautifully furnished condo
Beautiful! Very quite and comfortable! Had a wonderful time and felt right at home. Walking distance to restaurants, jazz club and coffee shops on the Napa River. I cannot wait to return!
The Anniversary Couple
Orange County, CA
The two bedroom rental was in a perfect location to wine and dine throughout downtown Napa. It was also very quiet and the owners were helpful in fulfilling requests. Overall the unit was quite nice and very clean. However, it would be great to see an updated master bath area on our next trip! The flooring/sink area/shower were clean, but showing quite a bit of age. Also, with the cleaning deposit required I would have hoped that we would not be responsible for the stripping of beds at the end of our stay.
Maybe next time? All in all we would certainly stay here again and enjoyed our stay.
Spent a weekend there with 2 girlfriends. Close to everything and gave us a place to just relax, watch movies and spend some time together. It was perfect.
Great homebase for wine touring
Very comfortable accommodation for four people. Spacious master bedroom, kitchen and living area. It was too cold to use the patio, but it would be great in summer months for grilling.

Cozy Napa Gem!
We loved this place - beautifully apointed and comfortable. Cant beat the location - if it hadnt been for the rainy weekend - we woudl have walked everywhere in downtown Napa!
We'll definitely be back, soon!
Las Vegas, NV
Beautiful and Comfortable apt !
I stayed in the 2 bedroom units with my husband and 2 other girlfriends for our Napa trip. This was the first vacation rental that my girlfriends has stayed in and they were absolutely blown away by how beautiful and comfortable the apt was, not to mention that the unit is located within walking distance to downtown Napa.
The unit was stocked with everything we need, washer/dryer unit, satellite tv in all rooms, internet connection, all down to hot chocolate and tea ! :)
We were a bit worried about checking in since we got delayed and arrived in Napa on a rainy night around 9:30pm, but were soon put to rest as everything we needed to know was on the email that Sandy sent me a few weeks prior. Checking out was just as easy! I will highly recommend staying at Villa Murialdo and will most likely stay here again for my next visit! :)
We bought this trip with my brother and his wife at a silent auction. We stayed two nights and had a great time. Very quite area but within seconds of Main street Napa...thats walking.
The unit had everything we needed and was very clean. Great weather allowed us to enjoy the balcony for our evening cocktail and morning coffee. Only one bath but we shared nicely.
Would definitely go back and stay here.
The location is the best
wonderful little apartment in a 4 unit. great location downtown! well equipped and very homey. loved all the winery info. had a 11 month old with us and crawling around apt. not an issue.
Fabulous, quiet, walk to most anything!
My cousin and I stayed here for our birthdays and rented the 2 bedroom 1 bath. It was very clean, roomy, comfy sofa, Dvd's, and fully equipped with wonderful towels, linens, and everything you need in the kitchen.
They recommended the Platypus Wine tasting tour which was great! Platypus picked us up at our apartment and dropped us off. A top notch 5 hour tour and wine tasting!
We enjoyed every moment and hope to go back!
A beautiful hidden gem right in downtown Napa!
This place truly is a hidden gem right downtown. My husband and I vacationed with another couple and the place was wonderful for two couples. Not a ton of privacy, but plenty of room to spread and out and be comfortable. We did the wine tour (9:45 - 2:45) with Keith and highly recommend it - he is a great tour guide and very knowledgeable about the area. Keith and Sandy were also very helpful in making restaurant recommendations. The condo really has everything you could possibly need - we grilled in one night and were able to prepare a meal comparable to anything we could have made at home. Being able to walk to everything downtown was nice. We used our GPS to locate the place and had no trouble at all. Good WiFi signal (nice touch). We will definitely return and stay with Sandy and Keith!
Convenient, comfortable and affordable!
The location of this condo in the heart of downtown Napa and right across from the Wine Train is ideal and provided the perfect "home base" for us to not only visit the wine country but neighboring areas such as St. Helena and Yountville where we enjoyed trying a variety of restaurants and smaller wineries. Accommodations were very comfortable and provided everything we needed. We will definitely stay at Villa Murialdo again!
Extremely comfortable & convenient location
Sandy was a great host - very helpful when organizing our trip by giving suggestions along the way. Upon arrival at the home we were pleased by the fantastic location and proximity to downtown Napa (walking distance to shops!) .. The home itself was very comfortable, and had every amenity we could think of. My husband had forgot his toothpaste, and Sandy had travel size toothpaste ready for us in the bathroom vanity area to use. We were very happy with our accomodations & would recommend this home in the future to any potential guests!
Winnipeg, MB Canada
Location, location, location...
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Any amenity we needed was there when we arrive, the location was the absolute best, and the check-in/check-out went without a glitch. We would not hesitate to stay here again and would highly recommend it.
We had a great experience at Villa Murialdo. The condo was spacious, attractive, and well-appointed. Some very nice restaurants were within easy walking distance. The location was great for touring the many local wineries. I would certainly stay there again!
Aurora, Colorado and Gothenburg, Nebraska
Pleasant Facility and Great Location
Our group was very impressed with the cleanliness, the adequate facilities, and the wonderful location of the condo. It felt like home for our 10 day stay. It was centerally located for our day trips to San Francisco, Sausilito, Bodega Bay and Jenner, Sonoma, Vacaville, Sacramento, and the Napa Valley. The rooster was an added treat!
Outstanding location in beautiful Napa.
Everything was beyond expectations. Recommend to anyone.
Croxley Green, UK
We had a great time at Villa Murialdo - the apartment is perfect...extremely comfortable and in a really good location. Sandy was great in the booking of the apartment and also hints and tips for Napa.
We also did the wine tour and Keith was superb.
I definitely hope we can return soon!
Girls trip to Napa
I just returned from our stay at Villa Murialdo. The accomodations were perfect for our girls weekend in Napa. Much more room for the 4 of us to spread out than in a hotel room. The location is great...you can walk to many restaurants, tasting rooms etc.
Villa Murialdo is a great self-catering alternative to a hotel or B & B. Location is just minutes walking to downtown Napa, and perfect for driving to all of the sites and the Vineyards. Full kitchen, washer & dryer, and wireless internet makes this a top choice for short and long term stays. Well done!
This place is great! Clean and amazing location. Walking distance to all the good restaurants and night life of Napa.
Honeymooning in the Valley
My wife stumbled upon Sandy's listing in our search for a great Napa location for our honeymoon. Sandy was great about responding to our inquiries, and provided lots of great info about the town and the valley.
Her husband, Keith, was very helpful as well. If its your first time in the valley, make sure to ask about their private wine tour service. Keith drove us and another young couple around all day so that we could check out different wineries.
The property was in great shape and was very comfortable. We felt very much at home and secure throughout our stay. The location really is amazing - only two blocks to the downtown area of Napa. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone interested in a week or two in the Valley.
A great comfortable time
We stayed for a couple of nights whilst in the Napa Valley. This unit was the perfect location, and enabled us to comfortably rest during our stay. I would definitily recommend it!
Ft. Lauderdale, FL
Great stay in Napa
Our family stayed in this nicely doecorated, clean and well maintained apartment for the 2 nights we were in Napa. The location was wonderful and the owners, who we met upon our arrival, were friendly and wanted to make sure our stay would be comfortable. There was plenty of room for everyone and we truly enjoyed our stay. We would not hesitate to stay here again should we have the opportunity to return to Napa.
Excellent place, well worth it!
This place was excellent, everything you need. All the comforts of home, we loved every minute there. Central to exploring Napa Valley and the area. Close to San Francisco, with the peace and quiet of a small town. Thank-you to the host for such a comfortable stay. We will be back for sure!!
Napa Wine Tours
Loved Villa Murialdo!!! Keith and Sandy are perfect hosts. Their home is lovely and walking distance to everything in downtown Napa. I can't wait to go back.

A birthday to remember
My husband Steve and myself stayed at villa Murialdo with our 2 best friends to celebrate Steve's 60TH birthday on the 4TH July. We had a fabulous time, beautiful property furnished and equipped to luxury standards, prime central location and most importantly, the unconditional help and friendliness of sandy and Keith.( sorry Keith, never did manage to get to your bar...Just so much to see and we only had 7 days). Keith was available to assist us, if required, but did not interfere or cramp our style. We loved the fact that the Centre of town, with a fantastic selection of eating places, was just a 5 minute walk away but the apartment was in an extremely quiet and peaceful location. We were fortunate to be a part of the July 4TH celebrations in Napa and thoroughly enjoyed the experience and the warmth of the locals.There is lots to see in the surrounding area, not just wineries. I cannot recommend this property, and Napa itself, highly enough. The only problem was that the Propery we rented for our second week did not live up to this standard, you spoiled us so much!
Enjoyed it, roomy & good value.
We had a great time at Villa Murialdo. We were in town to visit family and my husband also ran in the 1/2 marathon. The condo was well equipped (appreciated the extras like laundry soap and cards/board games for the kids). The first night we were worried about street noise since it is close to downtown shops/restaraunts but it was quiet and we slept wonderfully in the comfortable beds. The condo was roomy enough for our 2 young kids to play and was much better than staying in a hotel. It was also nice to be able to walk to the mall and river walk. We will stay here again.
San Luis Obispo, CA
Truly relaxing visit!
My sister & brother-in-law joined us on an extended weekend getaway. We stayed at Villa Murialdo Fri-Mon and had a great visit! The condo was exactly as described with all the amenities. Including four bottles of cold water in the fridge.
It was situated within walking distance to downtown Napa.
We took the "Walking tour with George" $20 each well-spent. For the wine testers in the group we should have bought the $20 tasting card the minute we arrived. It is found at the Visitors Information Center. We could have utilized it more over the course of the weekend. However, it is useable on a next visit as it expires at the end of the year.
The drive up the Silverado Trail was fabulous and we had a nice walk around Calistoga and Sonoma.
Great Place, Great Location.
We stayed at this apartment in July of 2010. We were traveling with 5 of us. The apartment is very nice and well furnished. We easily slept 5 of us comfortably. The apartment was very clean and well maintained. The fully equipped kitchen and bbq grill on the porch allowed us to easily cook dinner there. The location is great located right in the heart of Napa. The city center as well as the river front district are a short walk away. The only complaint I would have about this apartment is that there is only one window a/C unit and it struggled to keep the house cool.
A Comfortable Nest In Napa
My wife and I stayed at Villa Murialdo over the July 4th week. The unit was all we needed to be comfortable and to suit our needs to be convenient to downtown Napa, good restaurants, shopping and early morning walks around the neighborhood to loosen up before getting the day started. Also very handy to getting to Hwy. 29, Silverado Trail, and Interstate 80 to San Francisco. The location is in a quiet well established neighborhood. We both would recommend staying here during your wine country get-a-way.
Lovely Home away from Home
Nicely decorated apartment equipped with everyday comfort necessities! Walking distance to downtown Napa.
Kansas City, KS
A wonderful experience once again!
This is our second time staying at Villa Murialdo and certainly will not be our last. The experience of traveling with three generations of family and everyone feeling comfortable and excited about the lodging is rare. I absolutely know that the fabulous accomodations contributed to the positive and special experience that we had in Napa with family and friends.
Most wonderful stay in Napa!
Sandy is a joy to work with. I live in Napa and arranged the condo for my extended family. This is their second trip to Napa-here to celebrate both daughter's high school graduations. I could not have done it without Sandy's guidance and hospitality.
The condo is perfectly located, is so comfortable and relaxing...It's the perfect place. I will continue to recommend Sandy and her rental for all of my extended family and friends.
My husband and I stayed at the Villa Murialdo with my brother and sister-in-law and absolutely loved it. I will never stay anywhere else in Napa! We were walking distance from all the shops and restaurants. The interior was lovely and truly felt like my own home. I was completely comfortable and couldnâ€™t be happier with the accommodations.
Saint Louis, MO
Perfect location, perfect weather perfect place for the 4 of us!
The condo was well situated for our stay - the one item amiss was the corkscrew - but within minutes of our phone call to Sandy there it was and we could enjoy our first taste of Napa wine on the deck of our condo. The deck was a really nice feature. We intend on coming back to Napa and hope there is an opening for us at the condo. 4 of us enjoyed this visit my husband & I along with another couple.
I really enjoyed my stay here at this hidden gem. It truly was a home away from home. We came for a wedding so it was nice having a spacious place to stay compared to a hotel. Since the location is pretty close to wineries, we were able to spend the weekend at the local wineries. Great deal for a great place.
Delia & Victor
Home away from home!
An absolute delight! It was definitely a Home away from home setting for us all. Sandy provided all the comforts of home in every room and made us feel so comfortable. Thank you so much for helping to make our stay enjoyable and memorable. We will definitely be back and will highly recommend your location to everyone we know!!
Great Location, Great Value, Awesome Place to Stay
We loved our trip to Napa, Ca and Villa Murialdo.
The apartment was spacious, clean and had everything we could possibly wish for. Towels, soap, coffee, etc.
It is located right where the River Walk starts and so close to downtown Napa. Sweetie Pies Bakery is right around the corner and an absolute must!
We were looking for a quiet place to celebrate our honeymoon and it was just great!
ME Wine Enthusiast
The perfect place to stay to discover the Napa Valley
Villa Murialdo's two bedroom unit in Napa California was the perfect base for our recent visit to Napa Valley. Conveniently located just steps from the Napa river walk with it's shops and restaurants or to just get out for a brisk morning walk, you really could not ask for a better location in Napa.
The unit was very clean, well laid out and quite comfortable. Sandy has thought of everything in these units and we lacked for nothing. Need tape? Just look around. A soft sided cooler for a day trip? It's there! We packed light and washed our clothing as needed in the handy washer/dryer in the unit. There is a gas grill on the deck which we utilized for a dinner or two. It was really just like being home!
Napa is the perfect base to discover the Napa Valley and surrounding area. Sandy's place is just minutes from Route 29 or the Silverado wine trail. We visited a dozen or more wineries, made a day trip to the Pacific Coast Highway, and spent an afternoon in San Francisco all within easy driving distance from Villa Murialdo. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to return again soon!
White Rock, BC
2 nights in Napa not long enough!!
We (2 couples) stayed at Villa Murialdo and were very pleased with our stay. The well appointed suite was beautifly decorated, the amenities were abundant and the location was perfect. Will definitely be back and will be recommending to friends.
Jennifer and Bill Reed
Very accommodating, comfortable, clean with a great location.
My husband and I have been enjoying the Villa Murialdo for a number of years.
It's a spacious, well appointed unit which is walking distance to good
restaurants, a jazz spot, shops and all that Napa has to offer. The owners take
great care in assuring your stay is welcome and comfortable. If you prefer, the
kitchen is well equipped to allow for your own cooking and grilling on the
deck. Or, simply saunter over to the bakery or restaurants a block or more
away and enjoy a sunny spot eating by the river. You even have your own
laundry facility if you need it. Covered parking and convenient wireless
Internet is provided. We really enjoy staying here and plan to return for our
annual spring trek to the wine country.
Clean, close and comfortable
We were in Napa to visit children so we were very pleased with the location. It was perfect for having our grandson over to visit. Close to downtown with our own parking spot. Comfortable and nicely decorated with great beds. We were impressed with the cleanliness. Washer/dryer and dishwasher were a plus. Shower was a bit difficult to maneuver. We would definitely recommend this location. Sandy and Keith were very friendly and welcoming.
Perfect place to stay in Napa
Another couple and I were in town for a weekend wedding and we loved
staying at this condo. The rooms were spacious (coming from NYC
apartments!) and everything was clean and comfortable.
We were within walking distance of everything we needed, but the parking
spaces were very convenient for this times when we wanted to drive
We absolutely recommend staying here and hope to return in the future.
san luis obispo
It was a lot of fun and everyone was so hospitable and the local resturaunts treated us awesome. The room was perfect and quiet. It was spotless when we arrived and we had everything we needed. If there was anything we forgot, they had extras for us there:)! It was the best time we had in a LONG TIME!!! Thanks
Visitor to Valley
Awesome Experience in Napa
This rental was awesome -- spacious 2 bedroom/2 bath apartment very well appointed with everything needed for the week we stayed. Owners go the extra mile to equip the apartment with the little things you might not think about but are very appreciative to have such as coffee filters and coffee and laundry soap for the washer. Apartment was nicely decorated and well maintained. The only exception was the screen door to the porch being off the track, but the temps were too cold and there were no bugs to keep out, so it didn't matter to us. 2nd floor location was very secure.
Location was quiet area 1 block off the main street in downtown Napa -- easily within walking distance of everything we needed. Lots of information available in the apartment about the Napa Valley area to browse at our leisure. Free WiFi a definite plus.
I would stay here again in a heartbeat!
Fantastic Accomodations in and Outstanding Location
My wife and in-laws stayed the weekend at Villa Murialdo and absolutely loved it! The unit was extremely clean, well decorated and came with all the amenities. We were able to make use of the kitchen, washer-dryer and really enjoyed the location.
We were within walking distance of great restaurants (including AM coffee runs), the river and a cool little jazz club (Siloh's).
After a day of wine tasting we were able to enjoy some great music, delicious appetizers and a low-key atmosphere. Best of all, we only walked about 200 yards to reach the front door of our accomodations.
In summary, our stay literally could not have been improved. We will definitely be booking this unit again!!

The place in Napa
Villa Murialdo has one of the best locations for long-term stays in Napa. 1 block to restaurants, bar and unique stores. Safe, easy to find from either highway. We stayed one week and felt totally at home. The unit is perfectly equipped, laundry with supplies, great equipped kitchen, assortment of wine glasses, decanter, excellent coffee. Even if you are out and about this property has all the comforts of home.
Great hosts, discreet but available should you need them. We will stay again on our return.
A Delightful Stay!
This is a very special place that far exceeded expectations! It is clean, quiet and comfortable and the owners have thought of everything to make it a home away from home. I would recommend it to anyone. The location couldn't be better!
Great Location, lovely place, a value!
Very clean and comfortable condo that made a great "home-base" while we explored wine country. The owners had thoughfully outfitted the place, with their guests' comfort in mind. Could not beat the location as it is as easy walk to restaurants, stores, etc. I would stay here again, and will be recommending it to friends! Compared to nearby hotel rates, this place is a bargain!
Villa Murialdo was very cozy, quiet and in a great location. The mattress was extremely comfortable (not a canoe!!), the shower was very nice and the kitchen was well-stocked. We will stay there again and again.

This was a lovely condo for a few women to stay at for a wine vacation.
Comfortable furnishings, and the kitchen seemed to have everything we
needed. Owners were very responsive and easy to deal with. Condo is a short
walk from downtown Napa, which makes it easy to drink plenty of wine with
dinner. Would stay again.
The Villa was more then we expected! From the very beginning of even booking the place, we were very impressed at how easy and accomodating Sandy and everything was. The place was easy to find and Sandy's suggestions for first time Napa visitors was extremely helpful and appreciated. The condo itself is beautiful, spacious, clean, affordable and convenient.
There is a grill on the balcony which was great for us who love to go to farmers markets, get fresh produce and cook ourselves. We took advantage of the grill and all that the place had to offer.
I would stay there again in a heartbeat and highly recommend to anyone. Thanks again Sandy for a making a very special trip even better!

WONDERFUL LOCATION, GREAT UNIT
Great little 2 BR condo right downtown located very close to many good wineries. The unit had everything we needed and was clean and quiet. Close to shops, grocery stores and restaurants. Lots of literature and coupons for our winery visits.
Minutes from the wineries and only an hour from San Francisco, this was a great value at a good location. Check-in and check-out couldn't have been easier or more convenient. Sandy answered all of our inquiries very timely and was a pleasure to deal with.
We will definitely stay here when we come back in harvest season and highly recommend it to anyone wanting to visit the Napa area.
Very clean 2 bedroom unit. Nice size bedrooms and kitchen. The living room a bit small but nice. All of the little things were noticed and enjoyed. Parking was good and the location down town was fun as we could walk to most things.
We will return and recommend your unit. Thank You

Beds were extra comfortable. the owners have thought of everything to make you feel at home. Loved their wine tour too! Can't wait to go back!
What a Place
I own a time share, and have spent many weeks in resorts aroud the US, Mexico, and Canada. I can say that these units rate among the best I have stayed in. There was simply nothing missing. It was all there. Clean, convenient, great parking, and intertainment, resturants, it was all there. Would recomend.
Very comfortable, clean and convenient
My two sisters and I had a WONDERFUL experience. We thought the
accommodations were great, and we were in a very central location.
Everything was clean and comfortable.

Bryan/College Station, TX
Great place & close to everything!
We loved our stay in the Villa Murialdo. It's so close to everything in Downtown Napa (loved Silo's on St. Patty's Day) and not far from all the wineries. It was great to have a kitchen to come home to cook dinner and socialize with our "roommates" on the patio. We highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a great, quiet get away or even a place to stay after travelling to all the wineries in Napa!
We had a wonderful stay in Napa thanks to this fantastic apartment. It is
appointed beautifully and is extremely comfortable. And what an amazing
location! You literally walk out your front door into the riverfront/downtown
area of Napa, but at the same time you feel like you're on a quaint, quiet side
street when your home. Great stay!

Convenient location, super clean, and equipped with all you will
We loved our stay at this lovely condo. Walk to
everything is right! So convenient, but very
quiet. And Sandy has outfitted the condo with
everything you can possibly imagine.
It is a perfect property for enjoying the area.
We used the "Downtown Wine Tasting" card -- $20 to
visit 14 tasting rooms, all within walking
We were there for the Napa Valley Marathon. We
visited wineries on the Silverado Trail as well,
and it was great to come home to this beautiful
Napa's hidden treasure
Raleigh, North Carolina
If you go to Napa and you are looking for a place to stay, Sandy and Keith Stansberry's Division Street villa in downtown Napa may be the best deal you will find in this quaint town.
What makes this place special really are the hosts - Sandy and Keith.
They catered to our every need and to top it all off they own a jazz place across the street (Silo's) that really landed up being our hangout after dinner every day. Live band, great people and great service.
The 2-bedroom cottage is wonderful - not only was it clean, it was homey. It has everything you need, and everywhere in downtown, you can walk. That means tasting more wines in more places. : )
Alas! We had to leave and if Keith and Sandy will allow us to use the place again in a few months, we would jump at the opportunity.
Thank You Sandy and Keith. We can't wait to return the favor. And Mum's was delicious.. : )

Location superb, apartment exceptional.
The location is all you could want; within walking distance of all of downtown restaurants, across the street from the library which we used often, and close to Sweetie Pies, a shop that doesn't help you count calories! Two bedroom, two bath apartment was ideal for entertaining guests. Perfect place for starting a daily walk along the waterfront, going to the theater or roaming the neighborhood without using the car. We wouldn't want to say more since we may want to return to Napa next year and would want some apartment availability! I suppose that says it all.
Response from Sandy Austin - 03/10/2010
We'd love to have you come back next year!
Best Napa Getaway
We had a great time in Napa. The location of our flat was PERFECT. It was clean and well appointed. We have little children and it was great. We are planning on being here again next February!!!
Response from Sandy Austin - 03/10/2010
Glad you enjoyed it! Your kids were so quiet we hardly knew you were here! Please come back again.

Great stay in Downtown Napa
My wife and our friends from out of town enjoyed a wonderful stay in Villa Murialdo. The apartment was very spacious with all the comforts of home; much better than a bed & breakfast. It was also conveniently located walking distance from all the activities Downtown Napa has to offer. Will definitely stay again and will recommend it to all my friends.
Central Coast California
Perfect Location and Very Comfortable!
We really enjoyed our stay at Villa Murialdo. Downtown Napa is undergoing a great waterfront transformation and this is the perfect location to experience that. Great food, wine and walking just out the front door.
Then, drive just across the river and hit the Silverado trail North for quick access to wine tasting in Napa, Yountville, St Helena, and beyond.
Great, relaxing Birthday Stay
We came back to Villa Murialdo in December, because we had spent such a lovely week there in May for our anniversary. This stay was equally nice for us. The place was very relaxing for us away from the hustle and bustle of our everyday lives.
IT has a lovely livingroom to sit and unwind. It has a deck that is equally prized when the weather is nice(which it is, most of the time). The fully functional kitchen is furnished with whatever wares you may need and even has a bit of a pantry to help with spicing up your meals. You can even rusltle up a cup of coffee in the morning before you head out.
The bedrooms are ample and decorated very nicely with a wine country motif.There is even room for more that just 2 or 4 people to stay if you need.
The location is perfect for walking to downtown Napa. There are many things to do there. Its also great because its so close to your first winery of the day, wherever that may be.
We will definitely come back to stay again.

Great Walking-Distance Location: Downtown Napa!
Villa Murialdo was a great convenient location with easy walking distance all downtown Napa restauarants. The unit was very nice with washer / dryer, full kitchen, etc. This is a great value and excellent location for your Wine Country vacation - the tour service they offer is unmatched in value. Thanks Suzette for the tour and thanks Sandy for your hospitality - we'll be back!

Best hidden find in Napa
We've stayed at the Villa Murialdo apartments many
times and can't imagine staying anywhere else. Right
in downtown Napa, with a little kitchen, comfy living
room, comfy and quiet bedrooms...it's perfect for us
and another couple. With so many dog-friendly
wineries we always bring our little pup and these
units allow for that which adds to our love of this
place. The decor and amenities are hotel-equal (not
resort, but anything you might need). Really great
and we plan to come back twice a year for our Napa

A splendid stay in Napa
We throughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Murialdo. Very comfortable accomdations, felt like home. Very quiet and in a nice neighborhood. Centrally located near downtown Napa and within walking distance of many restaurants. Great "home base" to explore Napa, Calistoga, Yountville. We will definitely reccomend to our friends and family and look forward to stying there again.
Enjoyed our stay
Clean, quiet, central
This condo was very clean, equipped with everything we expected (bring shampoo and conditioner). Walls and ceiling seem to be insulated as we didn't hear neighbors above. Lots of brochures, books and info for your stay in Napa. Excellent restaurants and Silo's jazz club are literally across the street, downtown Napa/Napa River and River Walk are 1 block away.
Great apartment in great location
After staying in hotels for the past week or so it was nice to have an apartment, particularly one so well equipped. We took advantage of the wine tasting driving service and it was well worth it. The property is also in a great location for bars and restaurants.
Perfect place to stay in Napa
This Villa is a wonderful condo with plenty of space and very updated. We were pleasently surprised with the high quality and conforts of home feel. The location is also great if you want to be close to downtown Napa. I would recommend this place for 2-4 people. Thanks for a great stay.
