Why Pamela Dunn chose Saint Helena

Limited availability because of all a repeat guests. The house has tall ceilings which give the house of open, spacious and sunny atmosphere. Bedrooms on 2 levels affords nice privacy for couples sharing the house. House is located at the end of a dead end street so quiet (and safe for little ones). Location seems to be the most coveted aspect of this charming house - leave the car at home and walk to everything. Downtown Saint Helena - 2 blocks, acres of vineyards - 2 blocks. I bought this property because it was stumbling distance from Tra Vigne - my favorite restaurant ;)

What makes this house unique

Light and airy, spacious and comfortable, fabulous, fantastic location!!!!

Perfect Spot surrounded by the gorgeous wine growing valley

  • 5 of 5

We travel to Napa Valley every year and stay in the area of St Helena/Calistoga and during our trips we've discovered some fabulous favorite spots,and this house is in walking distance to many of those faves! Lovely, charming interior, nice outdoor garden spot for sitting as well as a lovely front porch to sip and enjoy coffee/wine. Great location and comfortable "home base" while visiting the area. Owner is extremely responsive, house was clean and well stocked with dishes, cookware, linens, etc. Perfect spot, highly recommended..

The ideal wine couontry vacation spot!!!

  • 5 of 5

We go to Napa Valley every year but usually stay at a hotel in Napa. We love Saint Helena and decided to try out renting a house. What a wonderful experience this was. The owner was incredible prompt and helpful in answering any of my questions. The house was wonderful, spacious and sunny with wine country charm and the location couldn't be better. Right behind our favorite restaurant Tra Vigne and walking distance to everything in town. Can't wait to return!!! (FYI - Farmstead, also walking distance has a great outdoor happy hour.

Tough start turned great stay

  • 5 of 5

We showed up to find the house not clean. Evidently the maid service left town and forgot to clean before doing so. What could have made for a miserable stay, turned out to be just fine. The owner was extremely apologetic and got a cleaning crew there asap. We simply headed out for some tasting and came back to a clean home.

Our stay was very nice. The home is very functional and open. The convenience is awesome. We were able to walk to coffee spots, shopping and dinner. The later being key so nobody had to be a DD, and we were able to enjoy the wine we bought each day.

Make a note that the upstairs bathroom has a tub and a handle shower so you either sit on your butt to shower or stand and deftly maneuver to shower. Not tough but good to know.

The back patio was nice and the grill was in good shape.

We would stay here again

location, location

  • 5 of 5

A nice old Victorian which has clearly been upgraded. Nice quiet street - not a through street which keeps it pretty quiet. We were greeted by a nice bouquet of flowers and bottle of Napa Valley wine on our arrival. There are stairs to go up and down both inside and out, so if you have any disabilities be aware. The location is great. We never used our car to go out to eat in St. Helena. Walked everywhere. And there are lots of very fine restaurants in town.

The upstairs is a nice sitting area with fireplace, and the kitchen off to the side. Also, one bedroom with a queen is upstairs along with a bathroom. The kitchen is well stocked and the ice machine works! (some places it doesn't) Also, the wireless system works flawlessly and the user ID and password are displayed for you to use.

The bottom floor is a very nice master suite. One room has a nice sofa, coffee table and TV. As you go further, there is a bathroom with tub and shower and the bedroom. One thing that needs attention is the rope rug. About 2-3 inches of the subflooring is exposed between the rug and tiles. Should be covered up. The bedroom holds a queen bed that is very comfortable. French doors exit to a patio and picnic table.

I should mention that we survived the big earthquake with no issues so the house has to be built pretty well! This is a comfortable house, centrally located to enjoy the wine country and good food. We stayed for almost 3 weeks and enjoyed it immensely.

Charming, charming charming

  • 5 of 5

We took my Dad for Father's day - we couldn't have been more happy with our choice. The house was equipped with all we needed for bbqing and having wonderful family dinners together outside. Left the car in the driveway and walked everywhere such a weclome treat from our normal work commute. We did spa at the Napa Valley Health Spa - great treatments and great pool - wish we could have stayed longer. Mom wants to come back for Mother's Day! Thank you.

Wonderful Experience!!!

  • 5 of 5

I just spent my 40th birthday with my husband and another couple. We spent a week at the adorable house. It is well appointed, bright and sunny. We liked that the bedrooms are on separate floors for more privacy. The best part was being able to step out the front door and walk everywhere. We never wanted to leave. Already planning to come back next year for a trip with girlfriends! Thank you for all your help in making our trip a very memorable one.

Sit up on the sunny front porch with morning coffee and watch the world go by. Hot air ballooning, great old style local movie theater. Tennis courts 5 minutes away. Rent bicycles from the local bike shop (5 minute walk) and ride thru along the vineyards path or great mountain biking 15 minutes away. Spa! Spa! Spa! Health Spa Napa Valley great fitness center, spa treatments and a fabulous pool to lounge by - 3 minutes walk.
