This secluded Calistoga estate is located just outside of the village of Calistoga in Napa Valley. The private villas sit in the center of an 8.5 acre parcel surrounded by 4 acres of vines and gardens with no nearby neighbors. While secluded, it has the distinct advantage of being located only 1.5 miles from downtown Calistoga with plenty of restaurants, markets, and shopping.
The estate is divided into 3 adjacent villas with a total of 7 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms; one villa contains 3 bedroom suites and the other 2 bedroom suites…each bedroom has its own bathroom each containing two luxury robes for your convenience. The third villa contains 2 bedrooms and a bathroom with a large bunk room which sleeps 4 people. The estate was intentionally designed with three distinct villas to increase privacy and reduce the noise that usually results from hosting a large number of people.
This property is KID SAFE and KID FRIENDLY with a pool safety cover, pack 'n plays, booster seats, etc.

We stayed at this beautiful home last December. It was everything that we hoped it would be...immaculate, beautifully appointed, spectacular grounds...exactly as depicted in the property description.
We had such a wonderful time that we're planning a return trip in November. Everyone from our family said it was the vacation they had ever been on - something for everyone from an 8 year-old to family members celebrating their 50th birthdays!
We absolutely loved our stay here. It was, indeed, a fantastic family getaway, fully represented by the site. It easily housed our extended clan of 17, ages 5 - 75 years old. The full package of accommodations was outstanding - elegant and full service. We ate gourmet meals, roasted s'mores by the fireside and fully enjoyed the pool, tennis court, game room, bocce court, large trampoline, and beach volley ball court. This property makes you feel both totally at home, and completely far away in a wonderfully pampered way. Wonderful!
Beautiful setting, great facilities, ideal location. This was a great place for our extended family event. Would definitely go back.
Recommended to us by friends who stayed here in 2009 we decided to visit in July to celebrate a special event in our family.
The family [ 11 ] was accommodated with ease and comfort and enjoyed the numerous excellent on
site amenities which are accurately reflected in the photos.
Calistoga and its surrounding area has much to offer in the way of excellent restaurants and wineries.
The owners are to be congratulated on designing a fully functional property of this calibre, well maintained and with a very helpful on site caretaker with good connections in the area for restaurants and wineries.
Highly recommended for a family vacation and we would stay here again.
To fail to enjoy a stay here would be of your own creation.
Quarterly executive meeting held with 6 participants. This is one of the nicest locations we have found so far since changing our meeting format from resort hotels to villas where we can all be together for a couple of days. Great facilities and layout. Good privacy in each room. Would be wonderful with families and kids. We did not have time to enjoy all parts of the house or facilities offered. We were lucky with 90 degree weather in October.
Myself, some family and friends stayed here and really enjoyed it. The buildings look to be newly renovated and are very tastefully done, spacious and well-appointed. The setting is truly gorgeous - the property is in a beautiful valley just below Mt Helena, and a vineyard surrounds the buildings. It's also only a few minutes from downtown Calistoga. There are lots of activities on the property, from the tennis court (with a ball machine!) to the sand volleyball pit, a bocci ball court, a separate play house with a pool table and air hockey for the kids, and a large swimming pool. And of course there is all the rest of wine country just past the end of the long driveway. Great for individual families or groups. A little over an hour outside of San Francisco.
Calistoga is known as California's spa town, with natural hot springs and mud bath spas to relax the most harried of visitors. It's a low-key, unpretentious place compared to the rest of the Napa Valley. With its local wineries, restaurants, shopping and outdoor activities, it's simply the best place in Napa to enjoy a carefree vacation with family and friends.
Our small town ambiance, coupled with both sophisticated and local dining and shopping, makes Calistoga a favorite of most wine country visitors. Stunning mountains overlook world-class vineyards; the surrounding countryside is spectacular, and the weather is almost always perfect. The 8-acre estate is located just over 1 mile from Calistoga and is easily accessible to Napa, Sonoma, and Alexander Valleys.
Other Activities: Hot Air Ballooning, Wine Tasting, Volleyball, Bocce Ball, Hiking, Private Gym
