About the Property

House- 1 Bedroom - 1 Bath - (Sleeps 1-2)

Please feel free to call the owner with any questions you might have--707 963-5589. Casa Cabernet is located in the country, just outside of St. Helena, "the beating heart of Northern California Wine Country." Casa Cabernet is a very private cottage/home on five acres of land. It is a one bedroom and furnished in a country casual way, with an exceptionally large living/dining room and well equipped kitchen, all with a fireplace in view. All rooms open onto a patio and grape arbor with two picnic tables.
Guests have the exclusive use of the owner's beautiful swimming pool and the gardens.
This architect designed home is in the heart of wine country and is surrounded by 42 plus acres of vineyards and lovely gardens designed by renown landscape architect, Thomas Church.
Everything is included-high speed wireless internet access, Sonos Sound System, Sony Flat Screen TV, wood for the fireplace, a gardener, a once a week maid/ linen service, bottled water, and all utilities except telephone. Other amenities include complimentary wine and terry robes.
It is within walking distance of more than 6 wineries as well as Dean & DeLuca, the famous gourmet market. Casa Cabernet is approximately 2 miles from the town of St. Helena. The views are spectacular with fields of grapes and gorgeous
mountains as a backdrop. There are excellent
restaurants. It's the perfect place to relax. You are removed from the congestion and noise of town living, but within close proximity to the town of St. Helena.
Ca. Home and Design Magazine says "ST. HELENA IS A NAPA VALLEY creative enclave that, though only a quick drive from San Francisco, feels a million miles away from the bustle of the big city. It's there, in the beating heart of Northern California's Wine Country, that people go to relax, to enjoy fantastic food and even better vintages, and to escape the manic pace of the day-to-day
"2016-2017 RATES The one month rate is $4 750, all inclusive. That translates to a daily rate of $158.00 per day. For stays of 6 months or longer, the rate is $3,750 per month. That daily rate is $125.00. In addition, there is a damage deposit of $1,500. Should you wish to stay a partial month, the rate is the same. All other expenses related to the rental are paid by the owner--weekly cleaning with professionally laundered linens, bottled water, wood for the fireplace, and all utilities including high speed internet.
I do not accept pets of any kind. It is a non-smoking environment.

The Napa Valley is pastoral and picturesque with acres of grapes and many wineries. The Valley sits between the eastern and western slopes and mountains. Casa Cabernet is located in the premier Rutherford appellation. The cottage is approximately 2 miles from the town of St. Helena, 2 miles from Rutherford, 18 miles from the city of Napa, and approximately 66 miles from San Francisco. It is possible to fly into Oakland, San Francisco, Sacramento or by private plane to the Napa Airport.

The seasons bring delightful changes to the Napa Valley. In the Spring, bright yellow mustard fills the vineyards. In the Summer, the valley is a carpet of green, and at Casa Cabernet, fresh vegetables are ripening, along with delicious peaches and pears, and eventually apples and. In the Fall, the valley turns many fall colors and the harvest of grapes begin late summer into Fall. In the Winter, the valley is a more quiet place, an unhurried time to visit. The stark brown twiggy vines in the fields are most attractive.

Long-term guests are welcome. It is an ideal place to stay while building a new home in the Napa Valley or looking for property to buy in the Napa Valley.

Manager info

About: I am a long time resident of the Napa Valley, having moved here in 1973, when we began the process of developing five acres, some in grapes and the remainder in home, garden structures, swimming pool and guest house. Prior to that, I graduated from The University of Ca. Berkeley where I affiliated with the Kappa kappa Gamma Sorority. After graduation, I taught first grade in Berkeley for six years. I now rent my guest house and enjoy the process. It is fun to meet new people and to provide for them so that they have a memorable time in The Napa Valley.

Why Saint Helena, CA, USA:
This property is considered to be one of the most desirable in the Napa Valley. It is a five acre property with 42 acres surrounding it. There are magnificent views of the vineyards and Mount St. John. It is within walking distance of Dean and DeLuca, a nice walk for coffee and treats, or one of their outstanding sandwiches. If you choose not to cook, you can get a gourmet dinner to take home. It is a short distance to the town of St. Helena and Rutherford, Ca.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This property, Casa Cabernet, is a small home for one or two people. When available a larger 3 bedroom, 2 bath home can be rented. Casa Cabernet Grande is truly stunning. It is only available when the smaller Casa is not rented.
