ABOUT THE PROPERTY AND ITS OFFERINGS: 'Serene Dream,' a Mid-Century ranch house, offers the best of town and country living: a convenient downtown St. Helena location that's a 10-minute walk, 2-minute drive or 3-minute bike ride (2 deluxe touring cycles provided) from St. Helena's finest restaurants, shops and services. Unlike most in-town rentals, Serene Dream is adjacent to a 3-acre vineyard, providing you with beautiful wine country views from both inside and outside the house.



Serene Dream's ALL INCLUSIVE RATE is the most competitive rate offered by any 3-bedroom/2-bath St. Helena property listed on the VRBO and HomeAway websites. As an added bonus, you get many complimentary amenities not offered by other rentals, even those with higher rates! Napa Valley sparkling wine, a variety of alcoholic spirits and mixers, mineral and sparkling water, a wide selection of Nespresso coffees and Twining teas, gourmet chocolates, deluxe touring bikes, spa robes/slippers/ toiletries – and more detailed below – are included for your comfort and convenience at no additional charge. The kitchen is even stocked with cooking herbs, spices and oils/vinegars, so all you have to shop for are groceries!



To add to your relaxation, a professional masseur is available to provide deep tissue massage and energetic healing work in the comfort of your holiday home among the vines. (Guests are responsible for the cost of this service.) 

 A dedicated property manager greets you upon arrival and is on call to answer any questions throughout your stay. Also, a LIBERAL CANCELLATION POLICY provides a full/partial refund and/or credit towards a future stay by you or another party of your choice.

About Owner

My husband Paul and I have been offering luxury holiday accommodations since 1999, with properties in Paris, the South of France, London and Napa Valley, California. Residential design/ decor and 5-star accommodations is our driving focus, and we strive to provide dwelling places that are more expressive, more beautiful, more comfortable than most comparable sized and priced vacation rentals. We live part-time in all these properties. So each functions as a personal 'home' -- not just an impersonal rental property. So there are many things, both big and small, that are not usually found in properties that are used exclusively as rentals. For example, there is a expensive Vitamix blender for smoothies, as we are both very health conscious. Also we've invested in top-of-the-line mattresses that mold to and cradle the body for a superb night's sleep. The hallmark of each residence is its personal style, which reflects its unique character and location. For example, our Serene Dream, a Mid-Century ranch with stunning views of a vineyard adjacent to the property, is thoughtful designed with the idea of bringing the look and feel of the wine country inside, with a calm white, cream, silver-grey/green palette sparked by carefully placed bursts of wood and colour of varying textures. Our philosophy is that we would never rent a property that we would not stay ourselves. So, putting ourselves into my guests’ shoes, we endeavour to 'think of everything' -- as our many 'five-star' guest reviews from our other properties confirm -- to make your stay the most positive and memorable experience possible. As Serene Dream is new to the rental market, we don't have any guests reviews as of yet . . . but do check out our reviews from our other properties. Email for links to these properties.

Hotel, never! Not when you can enjoy a home away from your home. This property has everything one needs to spend a weekend or a week as we did. Our daughter and son-in-law with their 16 month old baby stayed with us at this home for one week. Plenty of room for all of us to eat, watch TV or just hang out. All high end in the home from Ralph Lauren to Ghirardelli it's all there in the home to enjoy. Plenty of places to eat with a relaxing 10 minute walk or BBQ right at home. I can't top any of the other reviews because they've said it all.

Enjoy your stay as we have, starting with the wonderful communication with the owner, Paula and the house manager, Suzanne. They will take care of your every need.

Serene indeed

  • 5 of 5

This is an absolutely lovely house in the heart of wine country. I was searching for a different "feel" this trip..... One that was less "touristy" and more part of the St Helena community. This house was IT! The back porch overlooks a vineyard, and was a perfect place for morning coffee and post-wine-tasting relaxation. The decor is gorgeous inside, but the best part of this property is the attention to detail. There is nothing left behind. We felt as if we were the only people to have ever stayed! We had 2 couples and were perfectly comfortable. I would recommend this house to anyone wanting a true Napa Valley vacation.

Thanks also to Suzanne who was lovely and gave an amazing tour!!

We and our property management team, headed by Suzanne, work extremely hard to ensure that everything is in tip-top shape upon each guest's arrival. We strive to keep the property in a pristine state so it doesn't look or feel tired in anyway.

Location and Amenities Make Serene Dream a Five Star Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

Serene Dream, indeed! This beautifully appointed home has everything you need for a relaxing vacation in St. Helena/Napa. Spectacular location and amenities. We enjoyed sipping coffee on the deck with a beautiful vineyard view. The comfy touring bikes were perfect for a short ride into St. Helena for breakfast/lunch/dinner or shopping. After a hard day of wine tastings (ha ha), the hot tub and complimentary Chandon sparkling were very relaxing. The owners and house manager are always very kind and responsive. Suzanne was timely when meeting us and extremely thorough during the walkthrough. The home itself is nicely updated and tastefully decorated. I love the high-end touches as they are warm and welcoming without being pretentious. Truly lovely home! I simply cannot say enough wonderful things. When we visit Napa in the future, I hope we are able to stay again at Serene Dream!

Truly a Serene Dream

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed 3 nights at Serene Dream in mid February 2015. We loved every minute of our stay. The house is truly a 10 minute walk from St Helena's main street shopping area. The house actually is adjacent to a small working vineyard, within easy view of the comfortable and easy to use hot tub. The house itself is both comfortable and luxurious and very easy to navigate. The layout, appointments, decorations and special touches are new, functioning and high end. We couldn't have been more pleased with our stay there and we plan to return. Next time we'll spend more time in the comfy bathrobes and slippers you provided, sipping the coffee and the bubbly you provided and enjoying the house and setting, and less time running all over the valley on excursions, it is that special!

Owner's Response: Guests at Serene Dream enjoy many amenities not offered by other rentals. For example, a complimentary bottle of sparkling wine, variety of alcoholic spirits, 16 different types of Nespresso coffees, as well as luxury robes, slippers and toiletries, are among the property's comforts and conveniences.

Best house in St Helena

  • 5 of 5

We stay 2x year in St. Helena and this is by far the best house. Everything was just as pictures showed. Hot tub worked great while enjoying the beautiful view of the vineyard. Kitchen was well equipped, very spacious living areas, beds were vary comfortable, towels were plentiful. We did not feel like we were in someone else's house. The property manager Suzanne met us as scheduled and was very thorough. Will be renting this house again!,

Owner's Response: Serene Dream has been thoughtfully designed, renovated, and furnished to provide guests with luxury accommodations similar to a 5-star hotel but with all the comforts and conveniences of an upscale dwelling where guests truly can feel at home.

Happy Last Minute Travellers

  • 5 of 5

We are newcomers to the Napa area and had a family of teens with us. It was a short, but wonderful, trip. The concierge helped us arrange things to see at the last minute which really made the trip memorable, including reserving good restaurants in the area and planning a private wine tasting and a wine blending tour. Best of all, though, was the wonderful hot tub which overlooked a neighboring vineyard.

Owner's Response: In keeping with our 5-star luxury practices, our professional property manager offers a top-notch concierge service. From booking wine tastings and winery/vineyards tours, reserving seats at the best restaurants, hiring private drivers, scheduling in-house massages or spa treatments, she can help make your trip a most memorable experience.
