Home Away From Home

Review submitted: December 1, 2013   Date of arrival: November 23, 2013

This was our second stay at BJ's Nest while visiting relatives over the Thanksgiving holiday. BJ's is the guest room you wish your folks had: plush, comfortable, private, and quiet. We're provided with a small fridge, toaster oven, hot pot and coffee maker, sink -- all the essentials for quick meals and late night snacks (hey, who cooks while visiting Napa?). There's a hot tub outside (separate towels are provided) and jetted tub inside a spacious bathroom, four down pillows, cable TV, and DVD player. The location on famed Silverado Trail is very convenient and with windows closed we did not hear traffic noise at night. The tidy yard was great for dog walking. Barbara, the owner, is a welcoming, but unobtrusive, hostess.

Our best experience in Wine Country

Review submitted: November 24, 2013   Date of arrival: October 16, 2013

We've been to the Napa/Sonoma valleys several times but this was by far our favorite.

Beautiful grounds, serene location, convenient to the Trail and downtown Napa, BJ's Nest the is perfect place for spending some time getting to know the Napa and Sonoma valleys. We stayed 11 days and each day when we returned from our tastings and travels, we felt like we were coming home. We've never felt that relaxed on a vacation, ever!

Barbara is a font of knowledge about the local area and a very gracious hostess. She is very friendly and approachable no matter the question or concern. She excels at providing a friendly ambience in her manner and in the space.

We're coming back for 9 more days in 2014.

Private, comfortable, and most pleasant

Review submitted: November 13, 2013   Date of arrival: November 4, 2013

We had a very pleasant 5 day stay. This studio is very clean, spacious and comfortable, and Barbara overlooks no detail in ensuring that her guests have everything they could possibly need. The towels and face cloths are plentiful and changed out every second day. The living area furniture and the queen bed are very comfy (did not try the day bed) and the studio has very good lighting throughout. Bathroom facilities are superb! The little kitchenette is stocked better than most, with good quality knives and cookware, even spices and teas. Barbara had also left lots of fresh ground coffee in the fridge for us - both regular and decaf. The hot tub was a wonderful treat for the fall evenings as well, and we found extra towels in the bathroom cupboard for the tub. The only thing that prevented it from 5 stars in our opinion was the proximity to a busy road which made daytime sitting on the deck a little noisy. Having said that, we were out and about most of the day anyway. Inside, however, it is totally soundproofed so excellent for sleeping. And sitting in the hot tub in the evening is fine too because the tub jets override any traffic sounds, and all the large trees around make it very private. Barbara also respects the privacy of visitors as there is a separate entrance and private deck so it's really your own space. We would not hesitate in recommending this studio to others and we disagree entirely with the comments from the previous renter. VRBO is not for everyone perhaps, but we have used it in many countries and really enjoy it. We have found that each place is entirely different and you have to be flexible and willing to adjust to individual practices. Otherwise stay in a hotel. Barbara is welcoming and thoughtful and offers a lovely oasis for her guests.

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, sight seeing
