About Morgan Morton

We built this house in the Napa Valley as a weekend get away from San Francisco. We love the weather here and being so close to the most fabulous wineries and great restaurants. We love entertaining friends and family and built the house to have all the amenities that one could possibly want while here.

Morgan Morton purchased this house in 2000

Why Morgan Morton chose Calistoga

We love the location. We are on the Valley floor and see both mountain ranges on either side of our property . We are surrounded by vineyards with excellent privacy but CLOSE to all the restaurants and wineries,

Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful house and property - we brought our family of four for a week - and had a few couples cycle through. Had a wonderful time. It is amazingly decorated - much better than other rentals - even at this price point. And it is fully furnished with all appliances, kitchenware etc.

Location is very convenient - and it has been meticulously maintained.

Amazing Home - Best Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this villa for my husband's 50th birthday. We had 4 other couples join us, so 10 of us total. It was an amazing week!! I agree with the others who said "The pictures don't do this place justice"!!! Where do I start? The home itself is exquisite - beautifully decorated but not over the top. It is a welcoming and comfortable space. The bedrooms are spacious and our guests loved that they all had their own bathroom. The kitchen - very large and beautiful. We ended up eating out only once. We all had so much fun cooking in. The patios - outdoor spaces abound! So many beautiful sitting areas to have coffee, lunch or wine. The grounds - beautifully manicured!!! Roses everywhere. Each morning we would pick peaches from the peach tree - they were delicious! Other outdoor spaces: pool - very large. We were there over July 4 weekend and the water was perfect! Tennis court - so fun!! We also played badminton on that court. Bocce ball court - again, so much fun!! Our guests commented that we had ruined any future vacation for them because this house was so amazing.

The homeowners are awesome! Always quick to respond and made great recommendations on places to visit/things to do. It was truly the vacation of a lifetime. I highly recommend this home - you will not be disappointed!

Absolutely Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures on VRBO do not do justice to this vacation get away. The house is absolutely fabulous! My husband and I had rented this property to celebrate a nieces wedding in St. Helena and my husbands 60th birthday. With a very large extended family, that had not seen each other in over 5 years , we needed place close to the venue for the wedding plus also offered us plenty of space when the family was together for the birthday celebration and through out their visit. This house offered it all. With a large family room, a large living room, and a large outdoor area, there was plenty of room to meet and yet also have room for quite time. All I heard all week long was how exquisite, well taken care of, and beautiful both the outside and insides were of the property. The kids enjoyed the swimming pool and the adults loved the bocci court, with many professed experts of the game. The kitchen is a cooks dream with every conceivable amenity available. We cooked and grilled almost the whole time we were there and enjoyed eating outside against the backdrop of the grape vines and mountains. The double fireplaces outside were a dream at night, were you could easily converse, watch the sun set and stars rise and still keep warm. The house is also very convenient to many small wineries as well as the more well known wineries of St. Helena. The owners were easy to contact, pleasant to work with and always responsive. This was a very memorable event for us as well as our extended family. I can not recommend this place enough! Thank you for letting us enjoy your fabulous villa!

Best Week Ever

  • 5 of 5

We are from the Bay Area and rented this stunning estate to celebrate my wife's 50th birthday. The villa, situated on the Silverado Trail, is close to wineries, restaurants, and downtown St Helena and Calistoga, and built and maintained to the highest standards. It is a home, full of warmth, exquisite furniture, art, beds, linens, etc. Each bedroom is beautifully decorated and private. The mountain/vineyard views, and grounds- pool, spa, tennis court, gardens, bocce ball, trump any Four Seasons, or other posh resort. So much so, that we too, like many of the other reviewers, had trouble leaving, even though the valley has so much to offer. We cooked and catered-in meals, including a memorable birthday celebration with a big group of friends from home- great party house, wired for music, lighting, etc. We had the owner's housekeeper cater our first evening, which included some of the best carnitas I have ever tasted; I highly recommend you do the same. The owners are ready to help with recommendations, though their written instructions have covered every detail. If you are thinking of celebrating, touring the valley, or just relaxing with friends and relatives in one of the most beautiful places in the world, this is the spot.

Over the Top

  • 5 of 5

What can I say but OVER THE TOP. We have a group of 5 couples who travel a lot and are all over 70. Our stay was wonderful. The house, grounds, pool and scenery can not be duplicated. I am a builder and was very impressed with the detail that went into the design and construction. Floors from France, antique beams from San Francisco, furnishing from Italy. I spent time just admiring the details. Each day we spent on a private wine tasting at a new winery, then a fabulous CA lunch, then a little shopping, then back to the house for a swim or nap. The house is so great, we stayed in each night and cooked in - all to enjoy the house and surroundings. Nothing like a Napa sunset sitting around the outside fireplace. Each couple had a super bedroom and bath. We all decided that this will definitely happen again. The owners are very helpful, even though we did not need a thing. Thank you for letting us stay in your OVER THE TOP villa.

Perfect Napa reunion venue!

  • 5 of 5

VRBO was recommended to me on numerous occasions and I searched many times for various opportunities. The wedding of a nephew at nearby Meadowood, provided the impetus needed to make our first booking. My skeptical (workaholic) husband is now a believer and is searching for our next vacation site!!

We certainly were spoiled by our first rental and everything the owners provided for our use. We spent the week prior to the wedding relaxing at this estate. The only problem was that we did not want to leave the grounds (pool/spa, fireplaces, pizza oven, tennis & bocce ball!) to attend other events, although we did pull ourselves away to sample the fruits from several of the local vineyards!

The bedrooms were beautiful, spacious and comfortable – the only drawback for our group was that the 1st floor bedroom was not the best option for my 82 year-old parents. The bed and the side of the bathtub were too high for them to maneuver, however, they were able to climb the stairs to another bedroom and our daughter enjoyed the one on the 1st floor. My parents’ difficulty in getting in & out of the bed/tub did not prevent them from defeating 2 recent DI college athletes in Bocce ball!

I agree with previous reviewers that the photos do not do justice to the home and surroundings. The owners were very responsive to all questions that I asked. As being unfamiliar with the process I asked quite a few:) Our most important one was how to heat the spa- thankfully an easy solution: cannot heat the pool & spa at the same time. The pool water was comfortable in the middle of August and the spa took less than an hour to be a perfect temperature. We truly loved every aspect of the property and surrounding vistas. You will NOT be disappointed in renting this beautiful estate!

Thank you to the owners!
