Architect designed main home (3 bdrms, 2 baths) and cottage (1 bdrm, 1 bath)
This is the rare house that includes two separate structures: the main house and the cottage. The modern home is located down a country lane, 4 blocks from downtown, Saint Helena, the "heart of the Napa Valley".

The year around beauty associated with the wine industry surrounds our home in every direction.

About Byron and Kelly
Twenty years ago we came across a 150-year-old vacant lot hidden in the middle of a residential block in Saint Helena. We jumped at the chance purchased the lot; then designed and built this contemporary home while Byron worked as an Architect in a firm in Saint Helena. The design is a nod to the iconic western storefront with metal roofs and siding one sees around town. Kelly worked as the Art Director at the Saint Helena Boys and Girls Club. We have lived in Saint Helena since 1997.
Byron and Kelly purchased this House in 1998

Great location new a lot of wineries and shopping
Home was clean but would be nice to have some extra towels. Bedrooms were comfy and outside space perfect for enjoying some wine and friends. Showerhead needed replaced and owner was easy to reach and resolved quickly. Perfect location near all off Napa’s wineries and shopping!
Perfect Napa Hideaway
Perfect Napa Hideaway, quick walk to downtown St. Helena and all it's delicious restaurants. We have stayed two years in a row, love this house and location!
Great location and the perfect size
This spot was perfect for our group, the location was great and the house had everything we needed. We really enjoyed the outdoor spaces when it came time to relax!
Great location and accommodations for a girls weekend away!
A total of seven of us stayed at the Napa Valley Hideaway for four days while on a long weekend trip and were quite pleased with the location and accommodations. The house is a quick walk to Main Street St. Helena which has a ton of restaurants, shopping, and things to do. The house itself was clean, roomy, and the beds were comfortable. The cottage is detached from the house, but is a 10 step walk through a little patio / courtyard to a door to the main house. There is no air conditioning in the cottage, however the windows opened allowed for a nice breeze to cool off the warm midday sun. The kitchen was small, but had everything you could imagine needing and more to make breakfast and dinners for all of us. We enjoyed drinking our morning coffee in the courtyard and settled in each night in the same. It was perfect for our group and we would absolutely stay there again.
A Hidden Gem in St. Helena
My family and I stayed here in April of 2017. This is the fourth year we stayed at this property. It meets all our needs, but the best is the location. It is off a quiet street in St. Helena and is about 4 blocks from Main Street. That is perfect for us because we can walk to our favorite restaurant, Cook. The house is spacious and well equipped. We don't do a lot of cooking but it has everything we need to have a light breakfast in either the dining room or outside on the patio. On warm afternoons, we love to sit at the outside table, open a bottle of wine and enjoy the Napa Valley climate. I always tell folks that the air is a little fresher and the sun a little brighter there! Do consider this property for your next visit.
Property was great. Clean and well kept.
Our only complaint, there is one towel and one wash cloth per person for 3 days. No extras, no laundry soap to wash them. Everything else was great. We would probably stay there again.
We are located in a very pleasant off the road spot with an easy level walk to downtown's mid area. Across from our lane is a small park with picnic tables and benches.
