Adults-only holiday home with outdoor pool and fitness centre
Casa Cabernet , in the heart of The Napa Valley, rents by the month only. Long Term Tenants are offered a discount rate, depending on the length of the stay.
This very special place is the perfect retreat in which to relax and soak in the NAPA VALLEY LIFESTYLE. "It is the ultimate destination for those seeking chic tranquility." The owner of Casa Cabernet has always been aware of the importance of keeping a clean environment. This is not a change, as COVID 19 Guidelines for a clean environment have always been followed. Professionally laundered linens and once a week thorough cleaning weekly are two of the many amenities that the Casa has always offered.
This property is located approximately 2 miles from the town of St. Helena. St. Helena is sometimes referred to as the HEART OF THE NAPA VALLEY.
Casa Cabernet is an ideal, restorative place for long-term residents who are re-locating to St. Helena--working with realtors to find a new home, or re-modeling an existing home, or, simply a great get-away for a wonderful vacation in the country. Long term guests rent for less than the established monthly price. Many guests find it a quiet
pleasant work from home environment, complete with reliable wireless internet service provided by the owner.
It is located on five acres in the premier Rutherford Appellation or Rutherford Bench, as it is known. The Rutherford Bench refers to the 6 mile stretch that boasts the most famous soil profile. It is known to produce celebrated wines that taste dark berries and sassafrass with dusty tannins. The primary residents here are grapevines, and especially Cabernet Sauvignon Vines. Your stay at Casa Cabernet, in the heart of Napa Valley Wine Country, is owned and lovingly operated by Gaye G. Cook, a longtime resident of the Valley.

This is the kind of place that feels like home from the moment you enter, with first class amenities, to ensure that your stay is luxurious. Once a week maid service is provided by the owner. Other amenities include once a week linen service, wood for the fireplace, and more. Rooms are spacious, all with lovely views, a private terrace and grape arbor under which you may enjoy a picnic or evening under the stars.

Guests can shop the local Farmers Markets and cook in the well-equipped kitchen, or imbibe in one of the many fabulous restaurants throughout the Valley, many of which are nearby. A fabulous gym and spa are located nearby.

You can take the cottage bikes for a spin or walk through the lush vineyards.. Many of the fine wineries are within walking distance of the cottage. Or, you can walk through the vineyards to the new "Gary's Marketplace" to enjoy a latte and a morning sweet. On a warm summer's day you can lounge around the beautiful swimming pool and soak in the gorgeous views of Mount St. John.

Your cottage is set amongst the vines with forty two acres of privacy. You can be in the town of St. Helena in minutes or travel to nearby destinations, such as San Francisco, Sonoma, Healdsburg, and even the north coast beaches such as Bodega Bay.
The cottage is a fabulous place to recharge your batteries after a day of exploring.
I think you will enjoy reading the reviews to get a real sense of living in a truly special place.

casa cabernet perfection
Casa Cabernet is the quintessential wine vacation experience. Everything exceeded our expectations. The house is spotless, well equipped, and nicely appointed (you will love the luxurious bedding). The setting/landscape is professionally designed and maintained. Serenity best describes the feeling you get enjoying a glass of wine just outside your door or by the gorgeous pool that Gaye Cook invites you to use. She is the perfect host, always available to answer any questions and provide everything to make your stay exceptional. Diane and I felt welcomed and valued as her guests. Gaye is a fountain of local knowledge and history. We will definitely return - a month went by in a blink of an eye.

Rural reverie
If you're looking for a charming cottage surrounded by vineyards on all sides for as far as the eye can see in the heart of the Napa valley, Casa Cabernet is your destination. Gaye is the consummate host who proactively sees to all your needs from inviting you to pick whatever you want from her extensive garden - flowers, herbs, tomatoes - to enjoying the sweeping valley and mountain views from her nearly Olympic-size pool. The cottage is perfectly outfitted for day to day living - kitchen, laundry, closets and clothing storage - with superb weekly maid service to make your stay less stressful. The location is very private yet only minutes from Rutherford to the south and minutes to St, Helena to the north. Flora Springs winery, at the western end of Zinfandel Lane, is an easy bike ride from the cottage without having to cross Highway 29. Having lived in the Napa Valley for many years, we can tell you without hesitation that there is no better place in the Napa Valley to spend your peaceful, relaxing and far from the hotel crowds vacation or relocation home base. As you make your way down Cabernet Lane and the cottage comes in to view, you look around and say to yourself … now THIS is the real Napa Valley!

Another Great Stay at Casa Cabernet!
We stayed at Casa Cabernet four years ago, after which I wrote an extensive review of our fabulous experience at this property. While the fact that we returned is testament to how wonderful the first trip was, I'll summarize. You will not want to leave this place. The house itself is a great retreat. With its open floorplan and windows/sliders to the outside patio, it gives the impression of an even larger space. Very cozy and well-equipped. The property is park-like, beautifully landscaped and sits in the midst of vineyards with amazing 360 degree views. The location is perfect, minutes away from downtown St. Helena with easy access to Calistoga, Yountville and Napa. We also made the trip to Sonoma Valley many days with a relatively short, but winding, drive on the Oakville Grade. As others often point out, I would be remiss in not mentioning the owner, Gaye, who enhances the experience even further by ensuring that you enjoy your time at Casa Cabernet. She takes tremendous pride in the property and rightfully so. That pride is reflected in the condition of the rental and the overall grounds. The weekly cleaning and landscaping service is excellent and unobtrusive. This is a truly special and unique place which you will fall in love with, and will not find replicated elsewhere in the Valley.

Charming Casa in a Scenic Vineyard Setting
A picture perfect California-style and decorated cottage totally surrounded by vineyards and during the Spring, totally immersed in the glorious yellow glow of the mustard blooms, an artist's delight. The architectural design is so carefully crafted that each window uniquely presents an artist's view of this beautiful property. Peace and serenity, magnificent 360 degree mountain views, charming walks thru neighboring vineyards, close proximity to lovely downtown St. Helena are just a glimpse of life at Casa Cabernet. Outstanding restaurants, upscale shopping, the Culinary Institute of America at Greystone, picturesque wineries, close proximity to many hiking trails are but a sample of what awaits you at Casa Cabernet. The property reflects the meticulous taste of the owner who respects your privacy and yet so approachable should you have a question or would like a recommendation or two to be sure you experience the Best of Napa Valley, which actually is right where you are, at Casa Cabernet.

First Class Setting
A wonderful, charming and ideal setting to explore the Napa Valley. All the amenities you need to create a 'home from home' whilst you are away. The owner is charming and delightful allowing use of her own Pool should you wish. If you are looking in this area, look no further.
