This secluded 8-bedroom/7-bathroom Calistoga estate is located just outside of the village of Calistoga in Napa Valley. The private villa sits in the center of an 8.5 acre parcel surrounded by 4 acres of vines and gardens with no nearby neighbors. While secluded, it has the distinct advantage of being located only 1.5 miles from downtown Calistoga with plenty of restaurants, markets, and shopping.

The breathtaking panoramic views are reminiscent of Italy overlooking the vineyards, olive trees, the Palisade mountains, and Mount St. Helena. At sunset, the colors can change from deep golden yellows and vibrant pinks to rich rusts colors as the sun sets behind the hills.

The estate is divided into 3 adjacent villas and a yurt with a total of 8 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms (1 king, 4 queens, 11 twin beds, and queen/king pullout sofas); one villa contains 3 bedroom suites and the second villa has 2 bedroom suites....each bedroom has its own bathroom each containing two luxury robes for your convenience. The third villa contains 2 bedrooms and a bathroom with a large bunk room which sleeps 4 people. The estate was intentionally designed with three distinct villas to increase privacy and reduce the noise that usually results from hosting a large number of people. It also contains 2 large living/family rooms, each with a 50” plasma TV and home theater.

A fully equipped Yurt has recently been built that sleeps an additional 6 people for an extra charge and has 2 sets of twin size bunk beds and a queen sleeper sofa. Please contact owner for pricing.

The main villa contains the fully stocked gourmet kitchen with a six burner Viking Range, 2 ovens, a Sub Zero refrigerator, 2 dishwashers, a wine refrigerator, and a microwave. The adjacent villa contains a kitchenette with a refrigerator, sink, and microwave and an office with a high speed broadband Internet connection, phone, and printers. There is also wireless access in and around the property as well as an audio system (iPhone/iPod ready) to broadcast music both indoor and out. The villa has central air conditioning and heating, an indoor and outdoor fireplace, and 3 sets of washers/dryers.

The estate was designed for outdoor living. It contains 12 sets of french doors that open to ~1000 sq ft of balconies and ~2000 sq ft of covered patios. There is a large outdoor gazebo with a full outdoor kitchen that includes a professional gas grill, 2 burner stove, sink, and refrigerator. The estate also contains a large pool and Jacuzzi/spa (42x20 ft) with a child safety auto-cover, a tennis court nestled into the vineyard, a professional grade sand volleyball court, bocce ball court, outdoor gas firepit, outdoor shower, and a fully equipped exercise room with a treadmill, elliptical trainer, Olympic weights and dumbbells, and 4-stack weight machine.

The property also contains a newly constructed barn that houses a private game room with a pool table, ping pong, air hockey, and dartboard and a large rose garden adjacent to the Villa which provides fresh roses on a daily basis.

This property is KID SAFE and KID FRIENDLY. The pool/spa have an auto safety cover, outlet covers and all furniture is made of stain resistant microfiber. We also have child booster seats (2), pack-n-plays (2), a stroller, plastic cups/bowls, and plenty of children's toys available for guest use. No need to travel with all the extra child gear!

About Scott

Our Estate is located just over a mile outside of the village of Calistoga.

Scott purchased this estate in 2007

Why Scott chose Napa County

We live in San Francisco and have always dreamed of building a home in the Napa Valley. It took us 2 years of hard work, but we finally finished our dream home in June 2007. Located a little over an hour away, it's just far enough to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life, but not far enough that we don't waste our precious free time on the road commuting back and forth. Napa offers year around activities, some of the best restaurants in California, great weather, and beautiful scenery. We searched for years to find the perfect piece of land. The Villas are located at the center of an 8 acre parcel that is surrounded by 4 acres of premium vineyards at the base of Mt. Saint Helena and the Palisades mountains. The view from our property is the best Napa Valley has to offer.

What makes this estate unique

Our families are very outdoorsy and appreciate a wide variety of activities. Our estate offers a wide range of activities including tennis, volleyball, bocce ball, swimming, jacuzzing, a complete gym and game room, an outdoor gas fire pit, and gourmet indoor and outdoor kitchens. Great biking and hiking are minutes away along with a host of excellent restaurants. We're so self-contained, we rarely feel the need to leave the property.

Great Location, Amenities and Hosts

  • 5 of 5

My family, friends and I were very grateful to have had the absolute privilege of staying at this beautiful property during Napa's harvest season. The outdoor kitchen and dining area allowed us to enjoy amazing meals at home while nestled in the middle of 10 acres of vinyard and overlooking St. Helena Mountain. This was of course when we didn't indulge in one of the many 5 star restaurants just minutes away.

We also made great use of the pool, hot tub, volley ball nets and tennis courts which were all impeccably maintained.

Dan the property manager made us feel welcome and was very attentive to our group. He even let us try some of their fresh pressed virgin olive oil from their many olive trees on site - Thank you Dan. And Scott, the owner made the reservation process seamless and helped us with local suggestions - Thank you Scott . Also, the fact that there were multiple guest houses gave us the opportunity to spread out which was great as we all enjoyed some private time even though we were part of a larger group.

Most importantly, however when we first booked this home, I was unfamiliar with Calistoga and thought we would have to travel a bit further to get to the many Napa Vinyards and to my pleasant surprise we were very close to everything worth seeing and the drive to anywhere we went was spectacular with winding roads and beautiful scenery. The town was also quaint and fun to explore. I will definitely endeavor to be back again.

All in all, this was a 5 star experience and thank you again to the team at this beautiful estate.

Beautiful Property, Close to Wineries

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this property for large group business purposes. The location is wonderful, very close to the main street in Calistoga and very close to a large chunk of wineries! The property itself is very well maintained, as well as the houses, there are a lot of amenities and beautiful vineyard views! The pool, volleyball court, bocce ball court and fire pit were put to good use most evenings!! It was such a relaxing place to be and hope to come back again!

Family Holiday in Napa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful home last December. It was everything that we hoped it would be...immaculate, beautifully appointed, spectacular grounds...exactly as depicted in the property description.

We had such a wonderful time that we're planning a return trip in November. Everyone from our family said it was the vacation they had ever been on - something for everyone from an 8 year-old to family members celebrating their 50th birthdays!

Fantastic Napa Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay here. It was, indeed, a fantastic family getaway, fully represented by the site. It easily housed our extended clan of 17, ages 5 - 75 years old. The full package of accommodations was outstanding - elegant and full service. We ate gourmet meals, roasted s'mores by the fireside and fully enjoyed the pool, tennis court, game room, bocce court, large trampoline, and beach volley ball court. This property makes you feel both totally at home, and completely far away in a wonderfully pampered way. Wonderful!

Recommended to us by friends who stayed here in 2009 we decided to visit in July to celebrate a special event in our family.

The family [ 11 ] was accommodated with ease and comfort and enjoyed the numerous excellent on

site amenities which are accurately reflected in the photos.

Calistoga and its surrounding area has much to offer in the way of excellent restaurants and wineries.

The owners are to be congratulated on designing a fully functional property of this calibre, well maintained and with a very helpful on site caretaker with good connections in the area for restaurants and wineries.

Highly recommended for a family vacation and we would stay here again.

To fail to enjoy a stay here would be of your own creation.
