Napa Valley Dream Home-
Welcome to our home, I am writing this in hopes that you will be able to enjoy everything about the property that we enjoy about it.
Internet/Wireless: You can connect to Sprint and Verizon, although it can be a little iffy at times. Best place the front porch.
Telephone: The phone works for local calls if you need to make reservations at any of the fabulous restaurants in the Napa or Sonoma Valley. There is a magazine with all the local numbers in it. (Best idea: eat out for lunch and have dinner in.) Watch the sunset on the front porch. There are blankets to wrap up in on the Living Room shelves for when it starts to get cold.
Television/Satellite: Living Room and Master Bedroom both have satellite and DVD players. One other bedroom also has TV and DVD. There is a library of DVDs to choose from.
Fruit trees/Garden/Herbs: Please feel free to help yourself to any fruit on the trees and produce in the garden. Please do not pick more than you will use at the house. This will allow the next guests to also experience the joy of picking your own food.
Front Porch: There are cushions for the chairs on the front porch in the grey container, please return them when checking out. The seat back cushions are under the pool table.
Door Locks: Use the deadbolt only to lock the doors that is the only key you have for access.
Wildlife: You are in Napa country property; there is a lot of wild life if you leave them alone they will leave you alone. Some of the amazing animals you could see are: quail, finches, owls, bats, turkey vultures, wild turkeys, bobcats, coyotes, foxes, rabbits, squirrels, gofers, king snakes, rattle snakes, goffer snakes. AGAIN if you leave them alone they will leave you alone!(NOTE: the was a big goffer snake on the back porch Sunday)
-The neighbors all have pets and they can wonder on the property-it is best always close the gate is upon entering or leaving.
-Hiking is great here you can walk the roads or hike the country remember the country has poison oak and it is nasty when you get it. Be very carefull when hiking.(advise: when returning from a hike remove all your clothes throw them in the washing machine and jump into the shower, wash with something that breaks up oil (Irish spring works well).
-Preplan: Stop at one of the stores in town to get your supplies. There are some great stores, Nob Hill, Whole Foods and Trader Joes (All are located on Trancas between Hwy 29 and Silverado Trail). Check your list before you leave the store. You don’t want to get up the mountain to realize you have for gotten something you may need. A lot of the basics are up here for you to use.
-We have pool service and a gardener who come up once a week. They may not know you are there. Just an FYI
-The house has central vacuum, if you leave the doors open to enjoy both views until after dark you will be attacked by big flying bugs, best way to get rid of them is to use the vacuum. The hose is located in the laundry room with the hot water heater.
-Extra cues for the pool table are in the master bedroom armoire, please cover pool table when not using it, and please do not put drinks on the felt.
-There are pads for the lounge chairs in the box on the back porch marked ‘ups’.
-The outdoor Kitchen is there for you to enjoy. Some Charcoal is provided, but it is always good to pick some up on your way up the mountain. There is also a propane grill and there should be a backup tank available next to the grill should you run out of gas.
-Please strip the beds and pillow cases and put in the washer, when you are getting ready to leave. It would be a great help to have them washing for the next guest coming in.
-Please start the dishwasher on your way out the door, there is detergent under the sink for you to use.
