Private Hilltop Vineyard Estate surrounded by private vineyard above Napa Valley

Bedrooms 4
Property type chateau / country house


About the property

Private Vineyard, Hilltop Home, 4 BR/4 Bath, NOT available for short term rental

This spectacular 4 bedroom, 4 bath private vineyard estate is on 6 very private acres of which 3 acres are planted with our Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. The view from our hilltop estate and grounds alone makes one never want to leave (Read our Five Star reviews from past guests). Our hilltop estate is surrounded with over 100 acres of our neighbors vineyards. To the west, the view from our hilltop estate is across the Napa Valley and to the north up the Silverado Trail. With a magnificent and enormous outdoor terrace on the top of a private hill facing the Napa Valley this is the perfect place to entertain, or enjoy our private vineyard yourself. The outdoor area, half of which is decked and the other grass with a gazebo has a pool with spa attached that looks out over the surreal Napa Valley and the city of Napa. The city view at night is breathtaking! Located only a few minutes from downtown Napa, great dining, entertainment, shopping, Napa Wine Train and the Oxbow Market. Wine & dine at your very own visual paradise. Also, we can recommend your very own private chef to cater to your wishes.

The house is spacious with a newly remodeled kitchen with all granite counter tops and top of the line appliances. The kitchen's view of the valley below and the Skyline Park Green Belt is wonderful to see as you enjoy your morning coffee or prepare a snack between vineyard tours. The estate is professionally furnished by Thomas Bartlett Interiors (see link below) & decorated with a splendid new garden and landscaping.

Two of the four bedrooms have king size beds one of which is a master with a gorgeous and sprawling bathroom with separate shower and large Jacuzzi. The third bedroom has a queen size bed and the fourth bedroom has two twins and large Jacuzzi. All bedrooms have a private bathroom and flat screen TVs with Direct TV and Wi-Fi.

Located in the Coombsville AVA of the Napa Valley just five minutes from downtown Napa and The Silverado Trail insuring wineries & vineyards are an easy drive. The estate is privately gated and also on a private gated road.

Easy access to airports in Sacramento, Oakland and San Francisco.

Two complimentary bottles of our Cabernet Sauvignon when you arrive. Cheers!

I recently was fortunate enough to stay at this lovely property with a party of 7. It is hard to describe how great it was. You know how most rentals have a sort of stripped down feel, like half the decor has been hidden away? Not here. It is like visiting the home of your well-heeled friend with great taste. Gorgeous, elaborate decor. Everything you could need in the kitchen and plenty of nice toiletry items. Lots of space to gather. Then there's the

outside. Huge patio with a variety of sitting areas, one which was covered and had a firepit, which was where we mostly sat. Great pool and hot tub circled by beautiful landscaping and flowers. Killer views across the valley, complete with sunsets. A vineyard to stroll! It wasn't far to the grocery store and downtown Napa, but it felt like we were in the country. David the owner and Bill the property manager are very helpful and responsive. This home was the centerpiece of a fabulous vacation. Thank you for making it available.

5 Star Villa, Location, and Views!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, the pictures on this site cannot possibly capture how stunning this property is. From the moment we pulled up to the front of the house and toured the house itself, to the moment we exited the back of the house to the patio and grounds and views, views, views, it was all jaw dropping gorgeous! We actually felt as though we were staying in a five star hotel with all of the amenities provided -- an endless supply of all toiletries and towels and luxurious bedding and sheets. The decor is stunning, the huge kitchen feeling as though you're in a Tuscan villa. The master suite is massive, and the other 3 bedrooms beautifully furnished, all with ensuite bathrooms. The back patio is very large with a lovely pool, spa, fire pit, lounging area, and outdoor dining. Not to mention the vineyard that starts where the manicured lawn ends, and the breathtaking views of Napa beyond. And we were treated to some spectacular sunsets, as well as hot air balloons rising in the morning. So, so peaceful. A wonderful retreat after long days of wine tastings and tours. The booking process with David was quick and easy, and Bill, the property manager was very helpful and great to deal with. Bill is also the property manager at the Oxbow Market in downtown Napa. Visited several times, as well as the outdoor market across the street on Tuesday and Saturday mornings. A must! All in all a very memorable vacation. My husband and I are 5 star travellers, and we will definitely stay here again when visiting Napa. I very highly recommend it to others.

The Perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

WOW just about sums up this house! What could be better than waking up in a magnificently decorated/appointed home in the middle of a vineyard and then sipping wine in the hot tub with a sun set as the backdrop every night. The house is an easy 5 minute drive into the town of Napa, yet is very secluded and peaceful. The Chef's kitchen was lacking for nothing. We were there at harvest and must admit to sneaking into the vineyards to snitch grapes...what fun! The neighboring vintner, John "F." Caldwell, is delightfully "salty". I highly recommend booking a tasting with him. We arrived six days after the earthquake. The property manager and owner (both of whom are wonderful to deal with) had everything in top shape. We can't wait to go back! Cheers!!

Beautiful and Relaxing Home for Couples on Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This home and property are beautiful and magical. Our group of 6 adults had a wonderfully relaxing experience and enjoyed the peaceful surroundings.

We enjoyed every amenity offered including the fire pit in the morning while having the first cup of coffee, chaise lounges in the afternoon looking out over the valley watching the beautiful birds soar above us, the pool and jacuzzi, relaxing afternoon naps beneath the huge Weeping Willow, dinner around the island in the kitchen and daily hikes in the surrounding vineyards.

John Caldwell of Caldwell Vineyards and Winery entertained us with his remarkable unique story-telling and afternoon tasting of his wonderful wines.

Bill, the property manager was great to work with and helpful when needed.

Thanks for letting us enjoy your home in Napa. We definitely look forward to staying with you again.

Awesome Property... Wonderful People!

  • 5 of 5

We travelled as a group of 4 couples from Canada to stay at this beautiful property. Hard to describe how beautiful this home is with professional landscaping and magnificent views of the valley. The house is completely "enjoyment ready" with lots of room for the 8 of us to have space to ourselves, but also get together for time spent in the kitchen, dining room, living room... and the yard is totally awesome! Can't beat sitting in the hot tub watching the sunsets after a day of touring! Both the owner and the property manager were great to deal with. They responded immediately to any questions or concerns we had. We would highly recommend this property to others and hope to be able to visit again someday!

Wonderful Harvest Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We recently stay at this wonderful home. It was absolutely perfect. Every amenity you could think of. Sunsets at the end of the day in the pool or Hot Tub were a treat for our group at the end of busy wine tasting days. The home is well appointed and set on a beautiful hill top. The views are incredible. We are already planning on returning again. The owner is also a pleasure to work with and has a superb property manager that made sure our stay and orientation of the home was very detailed. Highly recommended!
