Property description

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. 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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose St. Helena:
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!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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!
