NAPA VALLEY HIDEAWAY: QUIET SETTING IN ST. HELENA

St Helena House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 beds, 2 baths & Cottage, 1 bed, 1 bath (sleeps 8)

We the owners, an architect and artist, built our modern home on a hidden lot overlooked for 150 years, conveniently located down a private lane just four blocks from Saint Helena’s Main Street. It sleeps a maximum of 8 guests.This was our family home for 14 years. With children grown, we increasingly enjoy our other home on Flathead Lake in Montana.

The main house features stained-concrete floors, galvanized metal finishes, stucco, rustic wood beams, re-purposed barn doors & windows, and antique light fixtures. Furnishings include one-of-a-kind finds, such as the beautifully restored bamboo living room set, as well as pieces that have been passed down through several generations. The living room has a flat screen TV with DVD/Blu-ray, a wood burning fireplace, 9' tall French doors, a beautiful chandelier and a grand piano.

A separate dining room is adjacent to the cook's galley kitchen, which is outfitted with a wide range of utensils and kitchenware as well as a Thermadore gas range and hood, Sub- Zero refrigerator/separate freezer and a dishwasher. The first-floor bedroom has an eastern king sized bed in a French-sleigh frame and adjacent bath. This floor also has a laundry room with a washer and dryer.

The vaulted-ceiling-ed second floor master bedroom has a cal king bed and ceiling fan. Wake up to morning birdsong and sun light pouring through an antique window with wavy glass panes and an old key hole from its’ former life as a door. There is also a bath and secluded deck. Additionally, there is an open loft that shares the second floor with the master bedroom. The loft has curtains for privacy and an antique four poster double bed.

We recently built a separate studio cottage with a private entrance, bathroom and high ceiling with a ceiling fan. It has a queen-sized bed. All beds have feather comforters and pillows. All showers have traditional ceramic tiles that we purchased from the old Healdsburg tile factory when building our home in 1998. The main house is air-conditioned and there is Wi-Fi throughout.

Outdoor spaces include a sunny front yard behind a privacy creating waxy-privet hedge. Between the cottage and the main house there is a casual partially covered outdoor dining area & barbeque. The living room views a heritage English walnut tree which shades the terraced area inviting you to relax on lounge chairs outdoors.

In summary, with six people, each two-some will have either a private floor or the guest cottage, all with private baths; or eight people can be accommodated by using the loft and sharing the bathroom on the second floor.

Fifteen years ago we came across a 150-year-old vacant lot hidden in the middle of a residential block in Saint Helena. We jumped at the chance to live there, and designed and built this contemporary home with a nod to the iconic western storefront with metal roofs and siding one sees around town.

Byron purchased this house in 1998

Location and privacy. Walk to vineyards, specialty food and wine stores, bakery & coffee shops, farmers market, playgrounds, great restaurants, cinema, luxury shopping, tennis & bocce courts and a health spa with a pool.

Modern, unique architecture in a close-in yet private location. This luxurious gathering place allows guests to easily enjoy themselves without a car, creating a casual and relaxing atmosphere.

A Super Value In St. Helena

We really like the proximity to downtown St. Helena. It's a quick walk to all the restaurants and shops. It is a well maintained property and, while decorated beautifully, it is also comfy and inviting. It's on a quiet street and the neighbors are quiet. The house offers every amenity you could ask for and is spotlessly maintained. We're definitely coming back!

We had a lovely time.Perfect place for 3 couples. This was a first time for one couple to Napa region and the property was the perfect place for introduction to the wine region. The house is very comfortable and convienent to main street.We would absolutely rent this house again and would highly recommend it to our friends.

Close to everything, shopping, food, and liquid refreshments this home had an exceptional kool factor. Tucked away in st Helena's but easy walking distance to town, three couples chilled in the afternoon shade drinking local wine and eating fresh cheese in this oasis. The home is comfortable and well detailed, easy directions and plenty of elbow space for everyone.
We can not wait to return .....

Wonderful family gathering place

We so enjoyed our family get-together at the Napa Valley Hideaway over Memorial Day weekend. This was our first get-together in a long time and the Hideaway provided a relaxing, quiet and big enough space to accommodate our family. The weather was perfect (mid 70's F) so we were able to utilize the outdoor areas to "expand" our gathering spots. The kitchen was nicely equipped although a bit small for the number of people at the house, so we limited the kitchen to the cooks! The location is ideal - walking distance to the main street in St. Helena with a wide range of boutiques, shops, and restaurants, and a very nice gourmet market a few blocks away. We also tried several great restaurants in St. Helena - The Press, Tra Vigne, Tra Vigne Pizzeria, and Gotts. If you have a chance, we highly recommend them all! And of course the area is scattered with so many great wineries!
The house has a washer and dryer which came in handy with a full house of people. Also a BBQ in the backyard...although we ate out so much we didn't use it. The cottage was small and had no closet to hang clothes but served its purpose for showering and sleeping.
We look forward to our next stay at the Hideaway!

Wonderful location

House & location was great. Very comfortable for 3 couples. My greatest disappointment was the off & on (mostly off) internet. A $50 modem and it would have been fixed. It is so common that they recommend where you can go in town to get internet. Also a TV in the living room would help.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback. In response, a wifi extender has been added so reception is good in all parts of the house now. A new "smart", flat-screen television and DVD/Blu-ray player have been installed in the living room to complement the other TV's located elsewhere in the house.
