WHEN COMPARING PROPERTIES & RATES please note: Our 'all inclusive' rate is the most competitive offering among similarly sized vacation rentals. Many others rentals charge cleaning fees of up to $200.00 plus a local sales tax of 12 percent. Some even add on damage protection insurance! The result: you wind up paying much more than their advertised nightly rate! With Serene Dream, a luxury spa-like retreat on a private vineyard in downtown St. Helena, you only paid our nightly rate quoted. As an added BONUS, you get many COMPLIMENTARY AMENITIES, COMFORTS and CONVENIENCES not provided by other rentals.

Everything you need they have, and more.” . . . “The house was spotlessly clean and equipped with every amenity, including a Nespresso maker, complimentary champagne and a fully stocked bar.” . . . 'Excellent value for the money as everything is included.' . . . 'Exceptional attention to detail. So much nicer than the photos.” . . . “I have stayed in a lot of vrbo rentals and this might just be the nicest one ever.” . . . 'This lovely home is a 5 Star experience with every amenity (and more) than any luxury hotel.' . . . 'A real delight! I can honestly say we plan on becoming 'frequent renters' and would highly recommend Serene Dream to others.' These are just a few of the ways guests have described our unique spa-like retreat on a beautiful vineyard in downtown St. Helena and their unforgettable holiday stay here.

The kitchen is even stocked with cooking herbs, spices and oils/vinegars, so all you have to shop for are groceries!

Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: My husband Paul and I have been offering luxury holiday accommodations since 1999, with properties in Paris, the South of France, London and Napa Valley, California. Residential design/ decor and 5-star accommodations is our driving focus, and we strive to provide dwelling places that are more expressive, more beautiful, more comfortable than most comparable sized and priced vacation rentals. We live part-time in all these properties. So each functions as a personal 'home' -- not just an impersonal rental property. So there are many things, both big and small, that are not usually found in properties that are used exclusively as rentals. For example, there is a expensive Vitamix blender for smoothies, as we are both very health conscious. Also we've invested in top-of-the-line mattresses that mold to and cradle the body for a superb night's sleep. The hallmark of each residence is its personal style, which reflects its unique character and location. For example, our Serene Dream, a Mid-Century ranch with stunning views of a vineyard adjacent to the property, is thoughtful designed with the idea of bringing the look and feel of the wine country inside, with a calm white, cream, silver-grey/green palette sparked by carefully placed bursts of wood and colour of varying textures. Our philosophy is that we would never rent a property that we would not stay ourselves. So, putting ourselves into my guests’ shoes, we endeavour to 'think of everything' -- as our many 'five-star' guest reviews from our other properties confirm -- to make your stay the most positive and memorable experience possible. As Serene Dream is new to the rental market, we don't have any guests reviews as of yet . . . but do check out our reviews from our other properties. Email for links to these properties.
