About the property

Villa Estate, 6 Bedrooms, 5 1/2 Baths, (Sleeps 12) with Valley Views

This lovely Tuscan retreat is located on Howell Mountain, just minutes from the charming town of St. Helena in the middle of the world-famous Napa Valley. The property presents a unique combination of luxury and open country living, all minutes from resorts, restaurants, wineries and shopping. The property offers 6 bedrooms and 5.5 baths, surrounded by dozens of varieties of fruit trees, flower and vegetable gardens, state-of-the-art pool, spa, sauna and open air pool house.

The approach is a drive lined with fruit and olive trees that takes you into a generous parking area that will accommodate up to six cars. The main house has an open space plan with beautiful limestone floors, modern art work, and a sunken living room with a cozy seating area centered around the fireplace, with a large flat screen TV. There is a dining area with table and chairs, and a spacious country kitchen and half bath. The space is light-filled and has access to the outside patio, gardens, pool and spa and pool house.The kitchen is fully equipped with kitchenware, cooking utensils and service for 12, pantry, a restaurant quality gas-burning stove, dishwfasher, as well as coffee, cream and tea for the morning. There are fresh farm eggs delivered from the chicken coop on the property available for guests, if they desire.

Upstairs, there are three comfortable bedrooms, all with queen beds. All feature quality linens and towels and locally made bath products. Two of the bedrooms share a bathroom with shower and tub. The master is spacious with an ensuite bath with shower, walk in closet, a fireplace and a separate sunroom with access down to the spacious patio and pool/spa area via a back staircase. There is a dramatic view east into the valley and toward Atlas Peak from the sunroom.

There is an additional small bedroom on the first floor off the outside patio with queen bed and ensuite bath with shower. The attached tower has its own private entrance on the first floor to a small living area with limestone floors, fireplace, love seat sofa, compact galley kitchenette and dining area for four. The kitchen is equipped with its own refrigerator, cooktop and microwave, dishes, silverware and basic cookware. There is a bookcase with a small library of books and information on the Napa Valley and wineries in the area, board games and a TV. The first floor features its own entrance to the courtyard, back garden, and landscaped grounds with pool and spa. There are views to the east valley and patio from a bay window.

Two queen bedrooms with ensuite baths are located on the second and third floors. Each bedroom has a private bath and balcony. The decor is casual-elegant European country with high-poster feather-beds, armoires, high quality linens and woven shades. The rooms have sweeping views of wooded hillsides,mountains and vineyards. The ambiance is clean, light, serene, quiet and private.

The mediterrainen grounds and gardens that surround the house are spacious and lovely and offer a myriad of choices for entertaining, dining and relaxation. The main patio directly off the kitchen has a comfortable outdoor seating area and there is a long wooden table for dining that seats up to 16 and overlooks the valley view for evenings. The beautiful pool and spa area are situated to capitalize on the view and anchored by an open-air pool pavilion and picturesque Italian pergola, that features an outdoor bar with a refrigerator and sink, TV flatscreen, outdoor table and chairs, chaises for sunning, storage, bathroom, and outdoor shower. The bocce ball court runs adjacent, and there is a small sauna. All is surrounded by a fragrant Italian garden of olive, rosemary, thyme and lavender.

This is the perfect wine country retreat for groups of family and friends that want to gather for special occasions, particularly retreats, family weddings and reunions, or to attend special events in the the Napa Valley, and want a bit of luxury and space in a prime location of the valley without the cost of the major resorts. Incredibly secluded and tranquil, but in the heart of Napa Valley within minutes of dozens of world renown wineries, restaurants, the town of St. Helena and Meadowood resort, it is an ideal consideration for those attending weddings, the Napa Valley wine auction, Napa Valley film festival, BottleRock Concert and harvest events. The property is a beautiful and a perfect spot for those who want a place to gather and relax, read, swim, play bocce ball and cook.

About Janie Green

We have been owners of this property since 2014. This past year we enhanced the landscaping of our outdoor space, including improvements to the pool, spa, trellis, arbor, outdoor pool house and bocce ball court. The changes have made a wonderful addition to an already stunning property. Our family lives in San Francisco and we love the beauty, weather and tranquility of the Napa Valley. We are excited about the possibility of sharing this wonderful property with others!

Janie Green purchased this villa in 2014

Why Janie Green chose Napa County

This property is the perfect retreat for vacation travelers, and particularly groups, looking for a short-term rental in the Napa Valley that is close in proximity to everything, but a quiet retreat that offers independence and good value to guests. With its many bedrooms and baths, spacious outdoor living space, and over 5 acres of property with unhampered views, it is a perfect retreat for our growing family and visiting friends. More photos coming soon!

What makes this villa unique

The views and grounds are secluded and beautiful and the property is a quiet oasis, yet very close to Meadowood resort and the town of St. Helena. We are less than 5 minutes to downtown and two minutes to the Meadowood Resort. It is the perfect location base for family and friend gatherings, weddings, and ongoing events in the Napa Valley. There are wonderful views of hillside and vineyards, but full privacy in your own small valley. Our guests love being able to enjoy all of the benefits of the area, but having this lovely retreat to return to at the end of the day.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

We spend a week in Napa each August with 5 other couples. There's a lot of wine tasting, eating in, tubing down RR, riding bikes... This home was the perfect place - incredible views, hot tub to sit in as we sipped what we brought home that day, close to absolutely everywhere we wanted to go (del Dotto, Plumpjack, Faille, Goose and Gander, Auberge...) and a gourmet kitchen and long outdoor dining table for flawless al fresco meals. And fresh eggs brought to the door each morning! The hosts were nice and helpful and unobtrusive. After 10 years of this annual vacation, I think we've found our home-away-from-home next year. If you need a property for a large group, don't bother going anywhere else - this is paradise!

Can't wait to return!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many vrbo homes but this by far and away the most best. Janie and the manager Lisa were incredible and even offered to help when our car broke down. Fantastic. Thank you!

Wonderful house in the wine country!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house for the weekend recently. Because we were attending a wedding, we didn't spend as much time at the house as we would have liked so we definitely want to return!

Lovely Property

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful valley views are the backdrop to the pool and guesthouse. The living area is a little cozy for a group of 4, but ample grounds and the rooms make up for it. The owner was wonderful in accommodating my requests, and we look forward to another relaxing stay here.

Fantastic Stay

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed staying at this quiet getaway! Fantastic views from above the valley and great grounds to wander. We really felt like we owned the mountain and were really isolated. Would definitely stay again - Strongly recommended!!!

Lovely getaway place for wine lovers

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed staying at this lovely getaway - it was far enough to enjoy the peaceful surroundings, including our morning walks, yet close enough to be minutes from the wineries and the shops and restaurants of St. Helena. The grounds are spectacular and provide a very relaxing atmosphere -- ideal for a pre-dinner glass of wine. It was too cold for us to enjoy the lap pool but it was well maintained and a great addition to the property. The inside accommodations were excellent and we especially appreciated the very comfortable beds and linens. We truly enjoyed our trip with friends and would recommend this property for a great wine getaway.
