Overview

St Helena House Rental Photos and Description

Outstanding Property, Location, Amenities, Client Service w. All inclusive Rate

WHEN COMPARING PROPERTIES & RATES please note: Our 'all inclusive' rate is the most competitive offering among similarly sized vacation rentals. Many others rentals charge cleaning fees of up to $200.00 plus a local sales tax of 12 percent. Some even add on damage protection insurance! The result: you wind up paying much more than their advertised nightly rate! With Serene Dream, a luxury spa-like retreat on a private vineyard in downtown St. Helena, you only paid our nightly rate quoted. As an added BONUS, you get many COMPLIMENTARY AMENITIES, COMFORTS and CONVENIENCES not provided by other rentals.

“What a find – just amazing.' . . . “We had a 5-star 'hotel' experience but with space to roam.” . . . “The hot tub and vineyard were spectacular, and the amenities were fantastic throughout. Everything you need they have, and more.” . . . “The house was spotlessly clean and equipped with every amenity, including a Nespresso maker, complimentary champagne and a fully stocked bar.” . . . 'Excellent value for the money as everything is included.' . . . 'Exceptional attention to detail. So much nicer than the photos.” . . . “I have stayed in a lot of vrbo rentals and this might just be the nicest one ever.” . . . 'This lovely home is a 5 Star experience with every amenity (and more) than any luxury hotel.' . . . 'A real delight! I can honestly say we plan on becoming 'frequent renters' and would highly recommend Serene Dream to others.' These are just a few of the ways guests have described our unique spa-like retreat on a beautiful vineyard in downtown St. Helena and their unforgettable holiday stay here.

Please see these and other excellent (five-star) guest reviews to learn more about the outstanding quality of the property/furnishings/decor/location/amenities and client service.

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.

WHAT TO EXPECT: Open the front door of this 1,700-square-foot, 3 bed/2 bath/2 car garage deluxe property with light, airy open-plan living/dining/and kitchen areas and second living/HDTV entertainment room and see a beautiful vineyard beyond the landscaped exterior deck and yard. This turnkey-perfect property, decorated with a tasteful combination of contemporary furnishings and 18th/19th century antiques, is designed to give guests an exceptional spa-like experience in the privacy of a home away from home.

WHAT'S INCLUDED: Many features and amenities not found in many other St. Helena rentals of similar size and price: a four-person Sundance hot tub with stunning vineyard views along with olive and pomegranate trees illuminated at night, a Jacuzzi multi-jet hydromassage unit in the master bath and a whirlpool bath in second bathroom, a Human Touch fully reclining robotic massage chair that works the entire body, two smart HDTVs with DVD players both in master bedroom and entertainment room (both internet enabled with 175 channels to choose from), two made-in-San Francisco Public bicycles (costing $750 each), a Chi Machine that energizes the lower back with a smooth, lulling motion, luxury king/queen beds and linens, your choice of natural feather down or synthetic pillows and blankets, plush robes/slippers, and Vitamix blender for making healthy smoothies. All this PLUS utilities, WIFI, U.S. and local telephone calling and taxes are included in the rental rate.

A custom-built buffet area with a matching quartz countertop that's perfect for entertaining flanks the dining area and divides it from the entertainment area. There, coffee lovers can choose to use either a Nespresso machine with 16 different selections of coffee capsules, a Nespresso milk frother (for making a perfect cappuccino), a BUNN drip coffee maker with Cuisinart coffee bean grinder, a Philips Senso machine or Bodum french press.

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.

Lovely home in St Helena

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I found this home on VBRO and decided to come for our planned two week stay. We were met upon arrival by the owner's representative who went through and over everything for us...she was so very helpful. Serene Dream is just as described by the owner, maybe better once we really noticed all the useful and thoughtful touches provided. The home has been a delight to stay in for these past two weeks!

Delightful stay!

  • 5 of 5
Two weeks in Napa in this fine home! We have had a wonderful stay at Serene Dream while in St. Helena. The location is perfect...close enough to walk downtown and backing to a vineyard, which is beautiful even in December. Everything we needed was supplied and Paula's description and pictures very accurately convey what actually was provided...we will stay here again!

Great time

  • 5 of 5
This beautiful home is a must if your visiting the Napa / St. Helena area. We had a a party of 4 on our trip & we enjoyed the home, hot tub, & the entire surroundings of things to do. If time permits definitely take advantage of the massage therapist. This was our first time to this area of California & this wonderful experience has already planning our next trip. The owners of this home & their property manager are wonderful people to deal with & made our trip 100% enjoyable.

Napa dream

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful week in St. Helena at Paula and Paul's home. There were 3 adults - 2 of us together - and we fit perfectly in this adorable home. Well-furnished, very clean, and has just about everything you need from kitchen utensils/cookware/glasses to towels set aside for the hot tub. I would live there year-round if I could. House sits in a quiet neighborhood and backs up to a small vineyard block - you do get enough privacy from the neighbors b/c the backyard is fenced in. Perfect location for your needs and we will be renting again in the future for trips to Napa.

Spa-like Napa vacation

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful extended weekend in this great property. The house was just right for two couples and absolutely spotless. The owner thought of everything we could possibly need in our stay and the whole experience, including being greeted upon arrival, was very enjoyable. We loved sitting out on the patio and looking at the vineyards; very peaceful with a glass of wine. Location was perfect; walking distance to Main Street, restaurants and markets (if you wanted to cook yourself although with the abundance of great restaurants, that might be a mute point). Would highly recommend Serene Dream to Napa Valley visitors.

Heart of the valley, walk to town, exceptional home

  • 5 of 5
What a great place for 2 couples to stay for our visit to wine country! Everything is as described and more. Spacious, comfortable, well-appointed and spotless. My wife commented 'I would live here in a heartbeat'. Hot tub is so nice at the end of a day of touring wineries. Quiet street, easy walk to town, convenient to grocery store, beautiful views. Thorough introduction to entire house upon arrival. Will stay here again next year!
