Welcome to your private wine country estate located at the top of Spring Mountain within 1 mile of a dozen award winning wineries. With vineyard views and a breathtaking view of Mount Saint Helena, you will experience a sense of calmness and peace as you listen to the birds playing in the fountain surrounded by oaks, madrones, and fir trees. Experience the sunrise with a cup of coffee and the sunset with a glass of wine from the look-outs, patios, and private balcony.
This gated Mediterranean villa is 2-stories, 2400 sq. ft. with quality finishes which include exquisite tile work, faux finishes, hardwood floors, granite and marble counters in the kitchen and bathrooms, a fireplace in the living room and family room. There are 3 bedroom suites each with their own sitting area and bathroom plus a separate bedroom with a private patio and adjacent half bath.
All rooms have panoramic and/or forest views. The estate has many outdoor entertaining areas and places to dine. There is a competitive bocce court that is lit at night and a loccia with fireplace and piped in music. Guests love to sit in the loccia and enjoy the sunset with their friends and/or family.
My family and I spent some time over Thanksgiving at this property and everyone loved our stay! Just like the property description and photos we found the house to be very clean and well maintained. We enjoyed visiting the nearby wineries, some of which you can see from the front yard! A couple of the property highlights for us was the outside fireplace which was a perfect place to enjoy a bottle of wine next to a fire and watch the sunset. We also enjoyed having the outside grill with the option of being able to eat outside at the table or inside the large dining room. Even with a large family of 8 people we fit comfortably in all the rooms and still felt like we had plenty of space.
Having visited Napa numerous times this was the best option for a larger group/family looking for a relaxing getaway. Already looking forward to our next visit to the Fish Villa!
My friends and I rented out the house for a wedding weekend and getaway! It was such a charming house, stocked with every amenity one could need! It was almost impossible for us to leave at the end of the weekend! The house was in fabulous condition & was very comfortable for our group. There were various seating areas outside that overlooked different vineyards. The bocce court was a huge hit as well! Thank you to Leticia for your gorgeous home!
This is a beautiful home located in the hill of St. Helena. The house is comfortable and well maintained was equipped with pretty much everything you could need. the three bedroom suites are nicely furnished and have comfortable beds. The living room and family room have nice views of the area. The grounds are well laid out and the outdoor seating area with the fireplace was a very nice place to relax and enjoy some wine. The younger people in the group realy enjoyed the Bocce Ball court. The kitchen was well equipped and we ate in for breakfasts and one dinner. The house contained an abundance of books on the area and allowed us to become more familiar with the region in general. The property was convenient to the St. Helena/ Rutherford/ Oakville/ Yountville area and we visited numerous wineries. The hostess was very friendly and helpful and we enjoyed the stay very much!
My friends and I feel very lucky to have stayed here -- it was quite difficult for us to leave at the end of our trip. Leticia and Ford are superlative hosts. Not only did they give us complimentary champagne and brie, but they equip the house with everything we could possibly need, from luxurious L'Occitane bath products to ample Duralogs and firewood for the various fireplaces to great CDs to enjoy. There was even a beautiful arrangement of fresh flowers in the kitchen -- a nice touch! We were originally going to eat out, but the kitchen was so well-stocked with great appliances and supplies that we ended up eating most of our meals at home, allowing us to enjoy each other's company, magnificent views, and the sounds of nature outside. There was also a lot of space for each person in our party of eight to spend time either in smaller groups or by themselves because of the tables and chairs set up all over the property. The interior is very beautiful -- everything is nicely decorated and clean and makes you feel at home. The rooms were all spacious, and there were two rollaway beds to accommodate our party. The bocce court was a great hit -- most of us had never played it before, but picked it up right away. The house is nestled away, so it's also very private, quiet, and calm. I don't remember another vacation where the environment made me feel so relaxed.
The drive up to the property is something to note. It's only five miles, but it takes about 10-15 minutes to cover those five miles because of the narrow and curvy nature of the road. Also, the signage leading to the house can be confusing because it is mixed with lots of other signs leading to other houses. We recommend that anyone who drives for the first time at the house to do so in the daytime to familiarize yourself with the road before driving at the night. Also, the traffic in downtown St. Helena can add time to your commute if you're going to any events south (e.g., Oakville, Yountville, St. Helena), so be sure to allow extra time for that (5-10 minutes, depending on the time of day). That said, though, we really didn't mind the road or the traffic after the first time we drove it. Driving up that mountain gave us the opportunity to enjoy the gorgeous mountain views, which we would not have traded.
There are not enough words for me to praise how wonderful this house was. Anyone who has the opportunity to stay here is very lucky.
A comfortable stay, especially during the hottest part of the day. The air conditioning was wonderful. Getting to the Villa was a little bit longer than we had anticipated, it is only 5 miles from St. Helena, but the road is narrow and has a lot of curves. The fully equipped kitchen was a delight, and our hosts were there to meet us and show us around. The quiet surroundings and wonderful views put everyone in a relaxed mood.
