Saint Helena House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

A stunning house in the Wine Country (Napa Valley), our house is located in walking distance to top wineries, shopping, and restaurants in Saint Helena, California. Our home contains all the opulent amenities you'll need and homely comforts. We could also extend our own third-party luxury services upon request.

We have had many people come to view our home prior to renting, and our home ends up the choice of every occasion. It is a gorgeous 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom home, with a designer kitchen, high ceilings, granite and French limestone touches. Outside we have an 'al fresco' dining area next to a koi pond with a trickling brook containing fish and our pet turtle 'Fred'. Here you will also find an outside gas fireplace and SPA. We have planting boxes filled with fresh herbs, tomatoes, etc. You can pick cherries, lemons, oranges, pomegranates, apples and pears from our garden depending on what time of year you are here. We also have an outside industrial gas grill under a wisteria trellis for barbecuing and dining. We also have a beautiful screened in front porch with outdoor furniture that seats 5 - 8.

Great home for family or friends.

  • 5 of 5

We came to St Helena to celebrate a 50th birthday. There were 8 of us and we were quite comfortable in the house and loved the 2 outdoor spaces. It was clean and nicely decorated. It was nice of Steve to walk us through the house to show us how everything worked. We loved being able to walk to town and also liked the neighborhood. We would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful Home/Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful home in St. Helena over Memorial Day weekend. Home is beautiful, well appointed, and very comfortable.

The home is located walking distance to restaurants and Sunshine grocery. The kitchen has everything you could need to cook (although we didn't use it during our stay). All you bring is the food to prepare. There is a nice screened in porch for enjoying coffee in the morning (bring coffee with you) or you could sit in the peaceful backyard.

The neighborhood was nice and quiet. Beds were plush. Thanks again for letting us stay at your home :)

Great home and Ideal location in the Napa Valley

  • 5 of 5

My family had an incredible trip to St. Helena! This was our third time traveling to the area and we knew we wanted to stay in St. Helena given it's our favorite part of the Napa Valley area. However, this was our first time using VRBO and we had a great experience. This home is in a great little neighborhood, a short walking distance to St. Helena shops and restaurants and an easy drive to the greater Napa area wineries as well. The location can't be beat and the home is lovely and well appointed. We would love to return soon!

Great house, location and owner

  • 5 of 5

This house was wonderful for our family vacation. It is the perfect location - walking distance to plenty of restaurants and wineries. The house itself is great as well - unlike most VRBOs it is nicer than the pictures convey. Would absolutely stay again. It made our trip.

Best of Napa-owner easy to work with ,Very accommodating Wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

Traveling from Michigan on our big rivalry football game day- Steve made sure he upgraded his Direct TV so we could watch the game. Steve also taped it for us so we wouldn't miss any thing! Steve is very responsive to any communiction-email, text, phone call.

Easy to walk to EVERYTHING even though we had a car we chose to walk into town for shopping and dining. Morning walks by vineyards yet very short walk to all restaurants in town. Morning coffee on the front side porch. Beds are very comfortable. Quiet neighborhood.

We used Napa Dave as our driver to Porter Family Vineyards, Robert Baile Vineyards, Chateau Lane as well as Silver Oak. Also visited T-Vine and its sister tasting roomTank . Would recommend all again- but the top of the list is this home and area.
