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.

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.

Best Vacation House in the Valley

  • 5 of 5
Serene Dream was a great place to stay. We especially enjoyed the included amenities such as the hot tub, nespresso coffee maker, grill, and fully loaded kitchen. The house was extremely clean and nicely decorated. It made for a wonderful retreat to return to after a day of wine tasting. We highly recommend staying there if you travel to Napa on your next vacation.

Everything Promised and More!

  • 5 of 5
If you have read the owner's write-up on this property you get a sense that they not only go the extra step but a few more! The write-up describes the house and all of the amenities but when you actually see the house you are surprised that it is even better than the glowing description! It really is a very nice house, spotless, neat, pretty, and truly has all of the nice little extras that will make your stay even more enjoyable. It was so refreshing to have a rental price that was all inclusive and not have the "cleaning fee" tacked on. Plus, yes there was sparkling wine, and liquor, and great pillows, and nice bicycles, and a nice hot tub, and a wonderful patio with comfy furniture, and an espresso machine, and coffee and....and.... They really do go the extra mile from being greeted and welcomed by their property manager and shown everything about the house to being very prompt in returning the security deposit. I never give 5 stars but this house gets my 5 star rating and then some!!

Owner's Response: Visitors to the Napa Valley have a lot of properties from which to choose. 'GOING THE EXTRA MILE . . . AND MORE', as this review states, is one of the many things that set Serene Dream apart from other 3 bedrooms/2 baths rentals.

what a great place for a visit to the wine country! We loved every aspect of the house...the location, the amenities, the comfort! Can't think of a single thing that we would have added to it. The kitchen is a cook's dream...the beds incredibly comfortable, the bikes great for a morning ride and Suzanne a delightful hostess! We have stayed in 3 of Paula's properties...all wonderful..our only hope is that she will get more!!!!

Very nice property; great value for stay

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here as a group of 4 people in September 2014 - our group included myself and my husband along with our daughter and son-in-law.

We really enjoyed this property. The backyard is very scenic and relaxing, the kitchen had everything we could ask for and more (including a great Bunn coffeemaker), and it was great to have a nice washer and dryer in the garage while we were there.

The bed in the master bedroom was very comfortable, and the office area was great for my husband to get some work done during one of the days there.

All in all, this place has excellent value and was perfect for our stay. I would recommend it highly.

Owner's Response: REGARDING GREAT VALUE & OFFICE: We have one of the few rental properties with a fully-equipped office, including a printer/fax/scanner, wireless phones and free phone calling within the U.S., high speed wireless Internet, as well as stationary and office supplies. So guests who must attend to business while away can easily do so.

Serene dream: great location, quiet spot, just perfect.

  • 5 of 5
We stayed as a group of 4 for three nights in September 2014. This property is clearly well cared for, recently updated, and completely defines the notion of "more than meets the eye"

The house is located on a quiet street about 3/4 mile walk from downtown st Helena. As an aside, Spring Street (4 houses from the front door, and which leads right to St Helena's main streets) is lit and safe at night.

It's an unassuming property on the exterior with driveway and garage parking. On the other side of the front door is where the place really stands out. There is a comfortable sitting area, a very functional kitchen with all of the accessories one could think of, a family room/dining area with gorgeous stone wall work, and an amazing backyard complete with outdoor dining, lounging and relaxing furniture.

The bedrooms were both perfect. Beds were comfortable and the showers were wonderful. Water pressure was great!

All in, we found this place to be exceptional value, extremely nice, and will be back soon. Thank you as well for all the communication during set up and for Suzanne's in person meeting at the beginning of our stay. It was a great experience.

Every detail thought of!

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from a week long stay at Serene Dream! It is in a wonderful location close to town with the restaurants and shopping, but in a very quiet neighborhood. We cooked in many nights and were amazed at how well stocked the kitchen was - from the glassware, to cutlery, to kitchen utensils! I have not seen this in other rentals. When we decided to pack a picnic lunch for our wine tour, there were coolers and plastic containers available! The bikes were also fun to use to pedal to the farmer's market on Friday morning. Serene Dream is a very comfortable home that I would not hesitate to book again!

Owner's Response: We have been successfully operating luxury holiday rentals in London, Paris and the South of France, and most recently St. Helena, for more than 8 years. So we like to think that we know what delights discerning guests and what they expect from a 5-star property. Hence, we spend much time, energy and money addressing 'details' that may be overlooked and/or not provided by less experienced rental owners.
