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, however, the cottage has a ceiling fan only. 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. If privacy is not a concern, for no additional cost, a maximum group of eight can be accommodated by using the 4th bed, located in the open loft on the 2nd floor. This requires sharing a bath, being a bit crowded around the dining room table and pulling up an extra chair in the living room.

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 comfortable gathering place allows guests to easily enjoy themselves without a car, creating a casual and relaxing atmosphere.

FELT LIKE HOME

  • 5 of 5
We were a group traveling to St.Helena to attend a wedding which included two couples and 3 single adults. The accommodations were perfect for all of us in providing great shared space and privacy. It had everything we needed just like home. Property is clean and well maintained. The location is within walking distance to downtown St. Helena's shops, grocery stores and restaurants. Communications from the homeowner were always prompt and helpful. Thank you for the relaxing vacation! We would highly recommend booking here if you are traveling as a group.

GREAT HOUSE, IN AN EXCELLENT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
This is a really great house! The location is unbeatable, and the description of the house in the listing is spot-on. Also, the owners are very responsive (which has not always been our experience when renting from other people). Overall, a really great place to stay!

A SUPER VALUE IN ST. HELENA

  • 5 of 5
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!

WONDERFUL MODERN ARCHITECTURAL HOME

  • 5 of 5
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

  • 5 of 5
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!
