This cottage style home is situated in a very quiet neighborhood and an easy walk to downtown St. Helena. The year round climate is wonderful and perfect for drinking wine on the front porch or in the privacy of the backyard where there is a BBQ and large eating area.

We are a retired couple who have lived in St. Helena for over 30 years. If we are not traveling in the summer you will catch us fly fishing on Rock Creek in Montana or in the winter sitting on the beach in San Pancho, Mexico. The rest of the year we live in St. Helena and enjoy the beauty of the valley and the access to great wines. We hope you enjoy our home in St. Helena.
Tara Godoy purchased this house in 1990
We love the climate and we love the access to the charming downtown area.
Our renters that love to cook love our house! We have a gourmet kitchen with a Wolf range and an island great for prepping. You will have a choice of dining inside or outside, sipping wine and enjoying cheese in the front or the back, this house has a style that fits everyone.
What a treat it was to stay at this home....all the amenities one could ask for. Also front and back areas to enjoy the outside. Kitchen is fully stocked.. Would definitely stay here again....
Had a wonderful time with friends this past weekend & this house was perfect. Loved Wilbur too!!
Must recommend Platypus Bus Wine Tours also! Will probably be in Calistoga next year but this place was
great & you won't be disappointed!
We had a lovely stay here in September, 2014, and recommend it highly. The house is delightfully compact and comfortable and the location - an easy walk to downtown St. Helena - cannot be beat. We especially enjoyed the nicely stocked kitchen and extensive back yard where we spent a couple of evenings enjoying fresh food and plenty of Napa wine (with no worries about making it back to bed safely). The house kitty is friendly and frisky and adds one more notch of charm. Tara was very responsive to our questions. Again, highly recommended!
The is our second stay at the St.Helena Gem. The house is as neat as a pin and you feel like you are in your own home. The kitchen is absolutely wonderful. It's a very short walk to Main Street. The house kitty, Wilbur, is friendly and tells you when it's time to feed him. The neighborhood is very quiet. The home owner, Tara, is very helpful and answers all questions promptly. We will be back.
This home is perfectly located to enjoy the Napa Valley; walking distance or short drive to excellent restaurants. We also enjoyed cooking in the very well equipped kitchen. Beds are very comfortable & neighborhood is quiet. The house cat is a great companion, & Tara replied promptly & helpfully to our inquiries.
...or at least we try to get here every year. We love our hudson home. Everything about it is fantastic. Even Wilbur. This is our favorite place and Tara is a great hostess! Thank you! Can't wait to come back!!!
Cheers! St. Helena is a social event that is offered downtown St. Helena on the first Friday of the summer months. Nearby Crane Park hosts our weekly Farmer's Market on Friday mornings. We have some of the best restaurants in the world within walking distance and hundreds of wineries in the surrounding area.
