Saint Helena House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 3 Bathroom, With Pool And Hot Tub. Private Yet Close To Everything

Relax in our gorgeous, airy, quiet, spa-like retreat just three blocks from shops, restaurants, and winery tasting rooms. Luxuriate in high thread-count cotton sheets with goose down bedding. Each of the three guest rooms has its own bathroom, making each a master suite. Lounge by our fireplace. Cook in the fully-stocked gourmet kitchen. Shower outdoors in our heated spa shower next to the Jacuzzi hot tub. We have a gas grill, speakers in every room, and Wifi throughout. There are four bicycles to use, a ping pong table and DVDs and games. Every amenity awaits your visit. Sit in our steam shower to warm up on a cool day. There are lovely places to dine al fresco on our patios or sit in outdoor arm chairs with a glass of wine. Our West Side streets are fun to stroll and there are also acres of vines within a couple of blocks of our door. St. Helena is the best place to base a visit to the valley from because it is so central. Let us help you with recommendations for things to do, places to eat and restaurants to try. Lie on our deep window seat reading a novel (there are plenty of books in the house). We are eager to make your visit as fun and relaxing as possible! The house sleeps 6 in luxurious suites that feature king or queen beds. It really is paradise and you will feel yourself unwind from the moment you arrive. This is a NO SMOKING house and we can't do short rentals because we don't have a short term rental permit.

About Mila Holt

We have four kids, and bought this house as a family weekend getaway. We are TV producers in the Bay Area, doing shows mainly for HGTV. Mila always imagined creating a fun rental experience for guests, so she has had a great time getting the house ready with fluffy towels, toiletries, warm throws, and every comfort. She wants to know the minute a guest thinks something could be improved! We are fun-loving creative types who like to decorate.

Mila Holt purchased this house in 2013

Why Mila Holt chose Napa Valley

We made a bid on this house immediately after touring it because it is unique in its beauty, charm and design. Everything is so well thought out. There are endless ways to enjoy the home, and all of it is uncluttered yet cozy and serene. You can park your car and not use it for days if you want, or tour the valley from this very central location. There are lovely vineyard walks within a couple of blocks. The Wine Country is truly one of the most beautiful places in the United States, and the variety of great eating, drinking, hiking, and biking experiences that await you is unmatched. It changes with every season!

What makes this house unique

When you open the three huge french doors that face onto the pool, turn on the slow-moving overhead fans, and plug in your Ipod to our whole-house sound system, you will know why we love this home. The neutral colors of the walls are soothing, and the light pours in through the huge, steel windows. Outdoors, there is a veggie garden, from which you can usually pick lemons or tomatoes or herbs. At night, the outdoor lighting creates a magical environment for al fresco dining or wine tasting with friends. Set out the candles and relax!

Absolutely awesome home...Outstanding hospitality from the owner

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful home for the month of July and all I can say is that this home and yard are amazing in every way! The home was so warm and inviting with all the amenities that one can think of. We loved the comfortable beds and the washrooms were perfect. I could go on and on about how great the house is, but wanted to leave room for saying how we felt like we were at a private 5 star boutique hotel when we were in the backyard. The pool and hot tub are amazing, the seating area and table and chairs were perfect, and we loved the outdoor shower. The location of the home was key! We really enjoyed being so close and just walking into town for morning Latte, afternoon stroll down main street and also to some restaurants for dinner. St. Helena is for sure the place you want to be for your Napa holiday. Thank you Mila and Tyler for sharing your home with us. You were amazing hosts that cared so much that we were looked after and that we were happy with everything. Our stay at your home exceeded our expectations in every way!!

Feels like arriving home again - a true gem in St. Helena

  • 5 of 5

We just spent another February in Mila & Tyler's lovely, warm, delightful, very special home - our favorite spot to stay now in St. Helena, where we have been coming for over 20 years. At this point, we feel like it is our very own home that we "share" with Mila and Tyler whenever we can. If you are coming to the wine country, and can stay awhile, don't miss it. I am a VERY picky vacation home renter, and this one is a real winner - comfortable yet stylish, very livable and inviting - and the backyard, pool and spa are incredible! We had superb weather and were outdoors most of our entire month-long stay - out in the back yard relaxing and/or using the strong WIFI throughout the yard, walking through the vineyards, walking to a great restaurant for another great meal (yes, you can walk anywhere in St. Helena in minutes!), or grilling at home in the lovely spa-like back yard. The pool truly looks like a photo from the Four Seasons, with 4 loungers, large umbrellas, a secluded spa tucked around the corner in a private nook, comfy wicker seating/conversation areas plus a dining table + 8 folding teak chairs for easy outdoor dining under the wisteria-covered pergola. Divine! And my husband and I can't say enough about the responsiveness of the owners, Mila & Tyler, and consider them to be friends now. We feel like locals now, and always feel immediately at home when we arrive at this blissful spot in the heart of the very best town in Napa Valley… highly recommended!!

fabulous wine country getaway

  • 5 of 5

this gorgeous home is a ten star retreat (though the scale only goes to 5, that's how spectacular it is) replete with a fabulous kitchen, super comfortable beds (and i am picky on this one,) great showers and fuzzy bathrobes, a pool that makes one exhale just looking at it from the comfortable lounge chairs beside it, each with its own sun umbrella, beautiful outdoor and indoor entertaining and dining spaces, luxurious private hot tub and outdoor shower in a garden setting, and gorgeous flora everywhere including a voluminous fig tree and flowering wisteria covering the trellis ensconced outdoor entertaining area. all of this is a short walk into town with fabulous restaurants and a great little bike shop. road cycling in this area is to die for. amazing wineries are close by. while there is no reason to spa anywhere else but the house, i would recommend calistoga for the farmer's market. we were there for a girls reunion, but this is a romantic and intimate spot that would serve well for good friends, families, and couples alike. the owners, mila and tyler, are super responsive and were clearly invested in their home and in our having a great experience there. i will be back. highly recommend!!

Owner's Response: when you said you were spending so many weeks with old friends, I wondered how it would go, and it sounds as if it was a success. The wisteria vines bloom on and off for months, so come again and you may well experience them some more. I'm so glad you enjoyed Napa Valley. Best, Mila

Exceptional resort style retreat

  • 5 of 5

This home is a true gem!

Ideal location and beautifully decoratedwith confortable beds and powerful showers.

A small walk and you're in the center of St Helena.

This resort style home resembles a 5 star hotel with all its amenities including a fantastic heated pool and jacuzzi.

The kitchen is fully stocked and the bedrooms are very comfy and stylish.

The owners are very responsive and always available for any recommendations

We've been all over the world and also rent our second home and this home

sits on the top of the most memorable.

We would love to book again very soon, its spotless clean, safe and peaceful. Highly

recommended for couples and families alike.

Thank you for allowing us to experience your beautiful home.

Absolutely perfect rental in wine country paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfectly set up for an idyllic stay in Napa any time of year. Plush bathroom robes, lounge chairs and umbrellas by the pool, bikes for riding into St. Helena...Mila and Tyler thought of everything to make our stay comfortable and relaxing. It was like our own private hotel. I can't wait to go back!

All the comforts of home and much more

  • 5 of 5

Perfection! Think HGTV remake for your vacation home. Perfect for 3 couples or a family. Privacy for everyone. The beds are better than anything you have slept on. Even the nightlights are thoughtfully placed so you know where you are in the dark. A great chef's kitchen with all you would need if the best of St. Helena weren't 3 blocks away! Great living room with a huge built-in day bed area plus comfortable sofas for lounging and conversation. A spa backyard with a hot tub and wonderful pool. Great lounge chairs with huge umbrellas or not. Dining and conversation area. All this just in the backyard. Not a huge house but it feels huge and spacious. As good as the photos on the website are, they don't do it justice. It's even better.
