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

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.” . . . 'Exceptional attention to detail. So much nicer than the photos.” . . . “I have stayed in a lot of airbnb and vrbo rentals and this might just be the nicest one ever.” . . . 'A real delight!

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 that 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 a variety of 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.



As a guest at Serene Dream 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 not offered by most properties 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 bath, 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.

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 and decor is our driving focus, and we strive to provide dwelling places that are more expressive, more beautiful, more comfortable than most comparable 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.

SERIOUSLY SERENE AND DIVINELY DREAMY

  • 5 of 5
We LOVED our recent stay at Serene Dream with our bff's! Although the pictures we viewed on line were enough to make us want to stay there, reality was even more beautiful! The owners thought of everything, and the special details were noticed and much appreciated. The bathrooms were amazing, the bedding divine. Whether it was coffee in the morning or wine in the evening, the back patio was a serene setting for relaxation with friends. We definitely would recommend Serene Dream - and already have - and we can't wait to go back! Many thanks to Joy and the wonderful owners.

AMAZING STAY!

  • 5 of 5
"What a fantastic place! When we were deciding what property to rent for our Napa Valley getaway, we looked at dozens of three bedrooms properties in St. Helena listed on the vrbo.com web site and nothing else could compare in terms of price, style, features (great hot tub and awesome electronic massage chair) and all the free amenities. We thought, 'This is too just good to be true.' But upon arrival, it wasn't. Serene Dream exceeded our expectations. The owner had left us a chilled bottle of Mumm sparking wine and we loved trying all the different Nespresso coffees each morning. The house was beautifully decorated ( more striking than the photos) and the owners thought of every detail to make us feel so comfortable. They even provided slippers and Robes! Just LOVED sitting outside on the comfy chairs and sip wine while gazing at the vineyard! It was very romantic!
We are booking our next stay soon!

TRULY A "SERENE DREAM"!

Truly a "Serene Dream"!
  • 5 of 5
We just returned home from a 3 night stay at Serene Dream feeling renewed and refreshed! This lovely home is a 5 Star experience with every amenity (and more) than any luxury hotel. We enjoyed our coffee every morning while overlooking a lush, peaceful vineyard and enjoying the antics of numerous hummingbirds. Likewise, our evenings were also spent on the patio while sipping fine wine and soaking in a sparkling clean hot tub. We also enjoyed riding the bikes and walking the lovely neighborhood. This home has a perfect location. You feel like you are in the country but only minutes from downtown St. Helena, shopping and great restaurants. The home is beautifully furnished and squeaky clean. We were warmly greeted by Joy and she explained in detail every thing we needed to know to make our stay enjoyable. We are already making plans to return and wouldn't consider staying anywhere else! I can say with confidence that Serene Dream lives up to it's name!

PERFECT AND CENTRALLY LOCATED

  • 5 of 5
I had the pleasure of staying at Serene Dream this past weekend and it was a perfect spot who wants to enjoy the Napa Valley. The home was tastefully done with all the amenities anyone can ask for. The home owner accounted for any needs someone would have staying at the home. The home is centrally located and walking distance to downtown which was a huge plus! I would definitely consider staying at Serene Dream again.

EXCELLENT PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
SereneDream is absolutely amazing. Nestled right up to a vineyard, it's a great place to stay for anyone coming to see California's wine country. The house is very modern and full of amenities, like a fully stocked bar! It also has a wonderful property owner that will come out and show you around the place, which is a very nice touch. No need to drive around this town at all, the house comes with two bicycles with baskets for your trips to the grocery stores, or dinner. There's too many things to list really, it's just a wonderful place to stay.

PERFECT IN EVERY WAY!

  • 5 of 5
Absolutely perfect home, couldn't have asked for anything better! We were 4 guests in our late 20's and the home was ideal. We loved how bright the home was during the day and enjoyed sitting on the back porch and staring out into the vineyards (yes, the home backs up to a vineyard!). The hot tub was a huge plus as well and overall the amenities were perfect and really made it feel like home.

The location can't be beat! In the mornings we biked to Crane Park (2mins) to play tennis and then biked to Dean & Deluca (5mins) for breakfast. During the day we explored wineries in the valley (St. Supery, Hall, Whitehall were our favorites and all within a 10min drive from the home) as well as wineries on the mountains (Barnett, CADE, Schweiger were our favorites and only 20mins away). In the evenings we walked into downtown St. Helena (10min walk) as well as ate dinner at Farmstead at Long Meadow Ranch (10min walk).

Can't recommend this home highly enough and look forward to going back!
