We were recently part of a group of 3 couples spending a 5 night stay at this beautiful home in St. Helena, CA. The location is excellent--you can easily walk to restaurants and shops on Main St. but the back yard also faces a vineyard and offers a beautiful westward looking view of the mountains. Enjoyed morning walks. The house is beautifully decorated and spotlessly maintained. The backyard is perfect for outdoor entertaining-- we grilled fish one night and enjoyed the sunset over the vineyard and mountains. The owners John and Pao Lien were gracious and welcoming hosts. When we arrived we found a number of thoughtful amenities we haven't seen at many vacation rentals ( bottled water, some fruit and muffins for the first mornings breakfast, and a welcome bottle of sparkling wine). They also offered a number of great suggestions on wineries and restaurants. The location provided a convenient base for exploring a number of wineries in Napa and Sonoma as well as visiting some great restaurants. In St. Helena we especially enjoyed dining at Market and Tra Vigne. In Sonoma, lunch at the Girl and the Fig was great. We highly recommend this house.
