Estate surrounded by vineyards for total privacy and relaxation

About Tom and Gigi
My name is Tom and my family and I purchased this property 25 years ago. We have recently completed a lot of renovation work and with our kids now grown, we are now offering it to guests on VRBO so that you can experience the exquisite quiet and sense of relaxation that we have enjoyed here over the years. We are local to the Bay Area and live in San Francisco. Clos d'Imelda is named after my dear mother-in-law.
Tom and Gigi purchased this Estate in 1991
Why Tom and Gigi chose Calistoga
We love the Napa Valley and this property is totally unique. It was originally the home of the Founder of Sterling Vineyard and it is surrounded on three sides with vineyards. When you are there, you can look in every direction and not see another house. There is complete quiet except for the buzz of a dragonfly, air balloons floating overhead, or the Napa River running alongside. During the Fall, the vineyards come alive with the crush season and every major road has trucks moving grapes from the fields to the wineries for processing. This estate is perfect for a family reunion or a corporate meeting and we have myriad referrals we can give you for winery tours, private chefs or caterers, even in-house massage.
What makes this Estate unique
Originally owned by the founder of Sterling Vineyards, you enter this secluded property on the Valley floor via a quarter-mile long tree canopied driveway. The main house is surrounded on three sides by vineyards and on its fourth side by the Napa River. The main house on the ground floor features a 2 story vaulted living room; a game room; a completely updated kitchen (including an inductive range and wine cooler), along with breakfast nook; and a separate dining area overlooking the pool. There is also a bedroom and bath on this level. Upstairs, there are two in-suite master queen bedrooms, one with both a bed & a new sofabed that is great for a family with children. A separate “bunk house” located near the pool has a bedroom in the front with private bath accommodating three guests and a second bedroom in the rear with private bath accommodating a couple. Perfect for overflow guests, or parents with children!! The premier attraction of Clos d’Imelda is its almost four acres of manicured grounds—lovely lawns (one large enough for a game of touch football), a signature 100 year old barn, and mature trees everywhere that provide total privacy. Adjoining the main house is an extensive patio area overlooking the Napa River with all the seating and equipment necessary for casual entertainment at night, Napa style. There is now a firepit for late night conversations and maybe some smores! And of course for the warm Napa days there is an over-sized pool as well as an adjacent hot-tub. Known among locals for its lovely private grounds, this is the ideal retreat for couples or families wishing to experience the Napa Valley dream.

Great location and property!
Our large family had a great time at Clos D'Imelda. The house and bunkhouse gave us a lot of flexibility around space, the house is well equipped and the property itself is beautiful! Perfect spot for a family reunion. There are many wineries and great restaurants in close proximity too.
Responsive and super nice staff. Incredible property!
Our stay was absolutely perfect! The property is beautiful, set on a vineyard with plenty of space for both adults and kids. Close to town and wineries. We had a wonderful time and experience. Also, the staff were a pleasure to work with. We would definitely choose this place again without question.
The compound is beautiful and private. Everyone enjoyed their stay. I highly recommend this property for anyone who wants a unique Napa Valley experience!
Great location, Wonderful Property
Our group of 10 was pleasantly surprised at just how great Clos d’Imelda turned out to be. Fantastic location, clean, spacious and relaxing. We used a private Chef familiar with the house which made it all the more enjoyable. Great stay!
A lovely stay!
We loved everything about this beautiful home! The drive into the estate is serene. The home is comfortable with lots of space to sprawl out. Tons of natural light! The kitchen is equipped with everything you'd need to prep & serve for a large group. The beds are luxuriously comfortable. We spent our afternoons in the pool & hot tub to unwind after a few hours of winery visits. Already plotting our next stay in this lovely place!
Gorgeous home close to everything we wanted to do - being ON a working vineyard was unreal.
This home is so beautiful, it’s well maintained, roomy, spacious... the pool is to-die-for!! The house had everything we needed to make several meals, comfortably seat 13 together outside in two different locations... just wonderful! Cannot overstate the beauty of the property - we jogged the perimeter of the grapevines every morning... wow just wow. Pull-out couches are (as to be expected) not the most comfortable but the beds (room for 11 in real beds) were great. Nothing but rave reviews from our party! We want to come back to this home!
