I have stayed at this property a number of times and completely love it. It is absolutely gorgeous and well-maintained inside and out and I cannot recommend it highly enough, I only wish I could give it 10 stars! I find myself coming back here again and again, as other houses in the area simply don't compare. Many of my friends have stayed here on my recommendation, and all have been so excited about their visits here and it has exceeded their expectations as well. The owners are helpful, accommodating, friendly, and easy to work with.
The house is newly-renovated with a beautiful new kitchen and redone bathrooms with custom Italian tiles. The home features large, expansive windows that look out to the grounds and the vineyards. The living room is well-decorated with a cozy fireplace. We never watch TV while we are there, but there are a couple of flat-screen TVs available.
The grounds are immaculately landscaped with many areas of interest which makes it perfect for entertaining. Imagine waking up to the mist rising over the vineyards and having coffee on your private sitting area off of the master bedroom - complete with fire pit! Long lunches, BBQs, cocktail hour and dining with family and friends are perfect under the pergola. The hot tub and swimming pool area is completely fenced, so safe for families with small children, and faces the vineyards for a private, secluded retreat. The miniature wood house, tree house, bocce ball court etc. make this an extremely family-friendly environment that my two-year-old loves.
I have booked this house for romantic,serene getaway weekends for two, family weekends with other friends with young children, and also for a shower weekend with girlfriends. It is completely versatile! It would be an ideal place to rent as a "base camp" while attending a family wedding in the wine country, and also for a honeymoon spot.
It is just around the corner from Dean and DeLuca, and a short distance from the town of St. Helena, definitely walkable. If you are active, you can walk out the front door and ride your bicycles, take a run or walk through the vineyards. You will be in the heart of the wine country, with many attractions, restaurants, activities, but why would you ever want to leave this house! One tip - book as early as possible.
