About David Smith

We (Jay and David) are an early-40's couple based out of Seattle. We *love* this condo, and have had such wonderful times with friends and family there. We call the condo 'Chateau Nonfamous' (it's a long story), and while it may not be as grand as some if the true chateaux in Napa Valley, as our home away from home it feels like a castle to us.

David Smith purchased this condo in 2010

Why David Smith chose Napa County

We bought the condo in 2010 when we were living in San Francisco as a weekend getaway. We loved it so much that we spent practically every weekend there. We spent a lot of time making it as comfortable as possible -- particularly setting up the kitchen for some amazing dinner parties.

When we moved to Seattle in 2013 we couldn't bear selling. We still visit when we can, but not as often as we used to. We'd love for others to share in the amazing Wine Country lifestyle when we can't be there.

What makes this condo unique

You couldn't ask for a better location. It's just a five minute walk to some of the best restaurants and wineries in the Valley, yet still in a peaceful location. You'll get the best night's sleep you've ever had.

Can't wait to get back...

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time spending time at this condo and will do so again. Perfectly located in the center of the valley and, if you have children as we do, there are so many activities and camps through the summer to keep everyone active.

The perfect Napa getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was a great location for a month in Napa. Walking distance to St Helena with all the restaurants, tasting rooms and shops you can possible need. The condo is absolutely everything that it claims! A great kitchen, comfortable bedrooms, a quiet location with a lovely outdoor area. Perfect for small dogs with a dog friendly park right across the road. I hope that, should our travels take us back to the area, we are able to rent this condo again!

Chateau Nonfamous....the perfect vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I are regrettably preparing to depart from this most perfect vacation getaway. We have rented apartments & villas in Europe frequently, but never have we had one as well equipped or better located than Chateau NonFamous! David & Jay, the owners, were instantly responsive to any questions or minor problems we had, and supplied is with a wealth of valuable information on the condo & the area activities & dining.

We eagerly anticipate our return next year, hopefully.

Fantastic home....

  • 5 of 5

Not only is this home lovely, with a gourmet kitchen and just blocks from downtown St Helena, but the owners were amazing to work with. We had a little "hiccup" with electricity and David was on it in 5 minutes and had it fixed immediately. Candice, who manages it for him and Jay, is also a lovely gal...easy to work with, checked in on me several times...Beautiful neighborhood, swimming pool right across the street. Loved it so much that I just booked it for three more months.

Wonderful Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation in Wine Country! Chateau Nonfamous is a wonderful place to stay in St. Helena. The location is very convenient, and the chateau is quite comfortable and well-equipped. We really appreciated the concise instructions the owners provided, and arrival and departure worked smoothly. We would highly recommend Chateau Nonfamous.
