Property Details

Modern luxury meets Napa Valley Wine Country ranch style in this beautifully 17 acre property nestled in a private valley in the Mayacamas Mountians 1,200 feet above Calistoga. We call it "Mayastoga."

The home is an elegant yet comfortable fully updated and beautifully decorated 6br/6ba modern ranch-style home on the border between Napa and Sonoma Counties. The ranch is within minutes of the best of both Napa and Sonoma wineries and is the perfect place for family reunions, groups of friends, or companies looking for a private, yet accessible retreat.

Walking into the home you'll be immediately impressed by the warm oak flooring accented with beautiful art and mid-century modern touches. The main gathering area to the right as you walk in includes a slate fireplace, large Italian sofa and designer finishes as well as a second seating area with four club chairs overlooking the grounds with large Live Oak trees.

The adjacent dining area comfortably seats 12 and is also steps away from the fully stocked chef's kitchen, set apart by a 165 year-old 5" slab of California Walnut used for additional seating or a convenient serving area. With its commercial sized refrigerator and freezer, two dishwashers, 150 bottle wine refrigerator, Miele automatic coffee maker, and virtually every small appliance imaginable, any chef will love this kitchen!

The home includes six large suits, each with its own private bath. Five of the suites have King Beds with extremely comfortable mattresses and linens. One suite has two queen-size beds for additional sleeping capacity. The bathrooms are fully stocked with luxurious Restoration Hardware towels and Napa Valley Soap Company bath amenities. Four of the bedrooms have 44" wall or furniture-mounted LED TVs with DirecTV. All have blackout drapes for complete privacy and comfort.

The home has a 3-zone central air and heat system, Wi-Fi, DirecTV, and a Sonos sound system that channels your music throughout the home, as well as on the front patio and rear pool area.

The outside backyard of the property includes a 1-acre fenced area with large, deep fully modern solar heated pool with built-in lounging deck and spa surrounded by Restoration Hardware furniture and numerous shade umbrellas for relaxing days. By the pool area is a large Weber propane grill and Kamado ceramic egg smoker. Sonos speakers provide the opportunity to create that perfect ambience!

The front deck is also complete with Restoration Hardware outdoor sofa, dining table and lounge chairs for relaxing and enjoying the view of the spectacular Mayacama Mountains. Along with the Sonos speakers, umbrellas and propane fire pit, it's the perfect place to relax in the sun listening to your favorite artists, enjoy breakfast as the sun comes up, or entertain guests for a truly spectacular gourmet dinner.

Down the walkway is a regulation-size newly refinished tennis court. The property comes complete with ample sports equipment, hiking trails, tree swing & hammock and so much more.

We've heard from so many who have rented this property that they originally arrived with restaurant reservations for each night of their stay only to end up canceling them and staying in to cook and enjoy the private time. They just didn't want to leave the property!

PERFECTION! by Anonymous 08/18/2017
I never write reviews, but for this property it was impossible not to do so. We were 9 adults and 5 children and all of us loved the house, pool, tennis court and location. The kitchen was incredible and had everything you could ever imagine needing to cook any meal. Ample indoor / outdoor seating for meals / lounging, common space, etc. Somehow we all felt close yet never crowded and with many options for privacy. We are already planning our return!
We loved staying at the Wine Country Ranch by Carolyn M. 08/11/2017
We were a large group - 6 adults and 7 children -- and were incredibly comfortable. The house is spacious and well appointed - we never wanted for anything: the yard and pool were incredible and the kitchen was completely stocked with everything we needed. It's also conveniently located - close to a few great towns and a short drive to many wineries. The Mayastoga host was a lovely host - communicative, helpful and incredible generous We didn't want to leave!
Outstanding and Luxurious by Tim J. 07/26/2017
We were a party of 12 Brits over for a wedding in nearby St. Helena so used all the rooms in the house. Without exception all were delighted with the house which is very well appointed and comfortable. Although the place was "full" it did not feel at all crowded as the individual bedrooms are spacious and comfortable and there are 2 separate outdoor areas, plus a big lounge area, so we were not penned in together at all times. Also, it was very hot while we were there (by Northern European standards anyway) so the pool was well used. It is salt water based rather than chlorine or some other chemical which was appreciated. Also, the very efficient and quiet aircon inside was a big plus. We had agreed that the nights we were in that there would be an appointed chef who would cook for the house...which is when we realised how well equipped the kitchen is so some top class cooking was delivered. All in all a genuinely good experience; understated luxury, everything worked and on the 2 occasions when we had minor issues our host was super-responsive which was appreciated. The only downside was that when we wanted to visit Calistoga (great little town) the Uber drivers had difficulty finding the place so we had to wait a while. A small price to pay for the peace and solitude of such a beautiful location.
The Perfect House by Cathy L. 06/05/2017
We stayed at this house in June and I can't say enough good things about this house. Very luxurious and it has everything you can think of. Our family stayed there with my sisters family and we had more then enough space and things to do for everyone. I would highly recommend this property! The host is the best to work with. He goes out of his way to make sure you have a perfect stay at his house. Thanks again Mayastoga!
Best House and Location! by Susan N. 05/25/2017
For more than a decade, we have been renting houses in the bay area and this Calistoga home is the best! Perfect location. Great walks, biking and Calistoga is a quick drive over the hill. The house is well designed, high quality and private. The owner has thought of the little details that make a difference- lots of extra towels for the pool, well stocked kitchen with enough dishes, and the second dishwasher is always appreciated with a large group. Perfect getaway!
One Word...AMAZING! by Corrine M. 05/21/2017
This beautiful property was a home away from home but only better. Traveled to Napa for business and this home made our stay. The homeowner was fantastic and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. 10/10!New Review
Napa Family Vacation by Rosemary F. 05/09/2017
This is home is unbelievable. We could not have asked for anything more from a rental property. It far exceeded our expectations. The photos do not do it justice. Arthur is the perfect host and is beyond thorough when making sure you know where everything is and how all the electronic devices work. He truly wants you to enjoy his home and goes out of his way to ensure you do. The house is fantastic. Upon your arrival you are not only stunned by the exceptional décor and cleanliness but by the beauty of the landscaping and views. The house comes equipped with everything imaginable. The kitchen is fully stocked; the sound system is awesome. There are robes, toiletries, cookbooks, comfortable beds and beautiful linens, pool towels, sunscreen......everything. We did not want to leave the house and were always happy to come home and jump in the pool/Jacuzzi after a day of wine tastings. You will not regret renting this property and will spend your time trying to figure out when you can return. Thank you Arthur for making a stay enjoyable. Your home belongs in Architectural Digest.
Fantastic Getaway in Calistoga by Rob B. 05/03/2017
This was a quick getaway for us to visit Napa to enjoy its numerous wineries and amazing restaurants. The home slept 8 of us comfortably and luxuriously. Every detail was thoughtfully appointed - making it a great place for 4 couples to enjoy both privacy and communal facilities. The grounds were amazing and secluded. I look forward to making a return visit - I just cannot imagine a better home for a small group of adults.
Increadible House in Calistoga by Diane S. 05/01/2017
This was our first trip to Napa Valley. We had 4 couples staying in this home. Each couple had their own bedroom and bathroom. We had plenty of room to move around. Linens and bath towels down to the soap were amazing. Gourmet kitchen was incredible. Fully equipped with anything you would need. It was very clean and comfortable. Outside patios, decks were amazing. It was a beautiful house to stay in. It didn't not seem like a rental property. It was in a very private picturesque setting. I hated to leave. We even got to meet the host and told him how much we loved his home.

Perfect Location with all the Amenities by Helen B. 04/22/2017
I needed a large home for a group of CEO's to spend several days together enjoying wine, food, and some meetings. The home laid out perfectly to accommodate (7) of us. We brought in a chef and took advantage of the large, modern kitchen. We enjoyed the pool, the tennis court, the weights in the garage. One night we brought in karaoke on the back deck. When we woke in the morning we saw rabbits and deer roaming the property in pristine natural silence. The pictures of the home can't do it justice and the discriminating team I brought with me kept complimenting me on the quality of the house I selected. Home was well stocked and the check-in, check-out was flawless. Best rental we've ever had.

OUSTANDING! by Mike S. 03/21/2017
I rented this gorgeous house to host about a dozen friends (including 3 seven year olds) for my 50th birthday weekend. - Fantastic house: Beautiful, quiet and amazingly appointed from top to bottom. - Fantastic host. Responsive and all the recommendations we needed. Highest recommendation!!
Exceptional Everything by Sarah C. 02/09/2017
I had the highest of expectations, and they were exceeded in every way. This home is stunning - far more beautiful than the pictures capture. It is perfectly laid out for a large group of people to have plenty of space and privacy, and the setting is magical. Something that is difficult to grasp from a website is how special the homeowner is. This home is stocked with every imaginable thing you could want (or had forgotten), and his extraordinary attention to detail was evident in every way. I would return to this home every year for the rest of my life if I could with family, with friends, basically with anybody.

Work Retreat and Team Get Away by Sarah F. 01/22/2017
We rented the house for a team offsite and retreat - a mini work vacation after a long couple months and as a way to build team morale and reconnect as a team. And the house was just perfect for this use. It was the perfect place to be able to work but also be able to relax while still maintaining privacy for everyone. Everything in the house worked perfectly. We couldn't have been happier with the arrangement.

Private Modern Luxury in the California Wine Country by Jessica M. 11/17/2016
I don't usually write reviews but this place was just perfect. It was my 40th birthday weekend gathering with a bunch of friends and kids. The registration and check in process could not have been easier and more convenient. The place was perfectly organized and stocked with everything you could think of. You could tell that a lot of care has gone into decorating and maintaining this house. The reviews were absolutely right about the kitchen being a perfect chef's kitchen! We couldn't believe how well stocked it was. We really enjoyed our stay here and I highly recommend this property.

Great Harvest Season Celebration by Thanksgiving Guest 09/27/2016
We had such a great time at the Wine Country Ranch. We had a 9 friends gather for a weekend of wine tasting and fun. The Mayastoga host met us, got us set up and we had a great time utilizing all the great resources set up at this house. We had dinners out planned for every night, but ended up changing our minds most evenings and just cooking and hanging out at the property. We hope to come back again someday.
STUNNING! by Julie M. 09/21/2016
This house is even more amazing than it looks in the photos. We had six couples and there was plenty of space both indoors and out. Not one detail has been overlooked. From the furniture, to the pool, to the huge gourmet kitchen, it's the kind of place you never want to leave. The property is expansive and setting beautiful. It's only about an 8 minute drive to Calistoga which has plenty of restaurants, shopping and groceries. The owner, Arthur, was wonderful too. He was very responsive and helpful throughout the process and greeted us at the home when we arrived. This was our sixth time renting a home in wine country and we've rented countless other vacation properties. This house goes straight to the top of the list and we've already decided we're going back next fall!

Beautiful Oasis by Livia N. 08/19/2016
We loved every minute of The Calistoga Wine Country Ranch. The house was perfect for our 3 families - kids (4 and 7 years olds), parents and even grandparents! The kitchen was stocked with everything from condiments to a blender, waffle maker, and even a Miele coffee machine! It's a cook's dream kitchen! We ended up canceling 2 dinners just to stay in and enjoy the grill, fire pit and outdoor deck. Every evening the deers, jack rabbits would wonder onto the the property which delighted the kids. Arthur is the most organized, sweet, and attentive house owner we ever had. We have rented many houses America and Europe and this house was by far the best!!! We cannot wait to return again!

A Total Escape by Brooke H. 07/23/2016
I spent a few days here with some third time to visit...and I cannot wait to go back. The house is large yet SO warm and comfortable. Multiple seating areas, big and small. Anything you need to cook a wonderful meal onsite is at at your fingertips. The pool is feel like you're at a spa. The beds are unbelievably comfortable, the entire place is spotless and it's so easy to slip into true vacation mode when you're there. The location is unreal...a quick drive to any and all of the surrounding towns. Eating, shopping, wineries, is all right there. A true paradise.

Exquisite Property and Setting in Bucolic Calistoga by Anne J. 05/04/2016
Just returned from staying at this property with 4 other couples. It is simply perfect. It is decorated and appointed perfectly. Very comfortable for a large group, because it has multiple sitting areas. The kitchen is AMAZING. I have already referred the property to two friends who happen to be looking for a place to rent in the area!!
A Little Taste of Heaven in Calistoga by Sherri F. 05/04/2016
We've been traveling to the wine country for over a decade and now we can bring friends to enjoy paradise. We've enjoyed this property now for the 4th year in a row. The property gets even more beautiful with each visit. Well-appointed, inviting, relaxing and CLEAN. We are always torn between staying in to enjoy the house or go out for wine tasting? You're greeted daily with wildlife and the scent of the rolling hills. Enjoy it all by the fire pit, the pool or a leisurely stroll to the tennis courts. This house is a "don't miss" opportunity!

Perfect Northern California Getaway by Annonymous 03/23/2016
The ranch-style home, and the 17-acre property where it is located are absolutely exquisite. The home has 6 bedrooms, each with it's own bathroom; 4 separate indoor "sitting areas;" large dining room, large gourmet kitchen; 2 laundry rooms; pool; hot tub; outdoor seating/lounging areas; fire pit; tennis court; hiking trails walking distance from the house; and extremely private. The owner is extremely accommodating and easy to work with. We were there with 2 families (4 adults and 6 kids ages 8-15) and the house was large enough to easily accommodate us all. I would highly recommend this property.

Fantastic House! by Anonymous 10/08/2015
Quite possibly the most well-stocked vacation home you could ever find - they even have a strawberry topper and cake stands! When you have strawberry toppers and cake stands in a gloriously large kitchen, you know you're set for your vacation. The house comfortably sleeps 14, and it's possible to do your own thing without impinging on others. There were multiple days where we just hung out at the house and enjoyed the pool. If you need anything, Calistoga is just 10 minutes away by car. There are multiple good wineries and restaurants around the area, and the Petrified Forest park was quite interesting too. The house itself is modern and well designed, and the wifi and in-house sound system was seamless. Arthur is a conscientious and understanding host, and I thoroughly enjoyed working with him.

Perfect Reunion by Dawn H. 08/25/2015
Held my husband's 40th with his closest friends which felt more like a reunion. Arthur's home served as the perfect balance for entertaining both adults and kids. The home is approx 30-45 min away from some amazing wineries and 45 min from Oxbow, downtown Napa. It's very convenient, but once you're at the home make sure you have everything you need because you will not want to leave until check-out. It's private, quiet, and beautiful. An amazing time was had by all.

Modern Luxury at its Best by Morton & Laura S. 06/15/2015
My wife and I had our wedding at a venue in Napa, and we stayed at the ranch with the rest of the bridal party for an extended weekend. The ranch is a truly amazing place. Everything is extremely well-kept and well thought out. We especially enjoyed the super cool interior design and the new amazing pool. This place is understated modern luxury at its best. The best way to describe it is as a newly renovated 5-star resort, but with all the practical benefits and privacy of a private home. We highly recommend it to everyone seeking a luxury getaway in wine country.
Amazing Home! by Jenni H. 06/30/2014
We absolutely loved our stay at this home. The home itself is beautifully furnished, with every detail considered and available to make it a perfect week. We had 3 families with kids - and there was plenty of room for everyone to feel like they had their own space. The outside living space was just as great ... rolling hills, a hammock, and a beautiful pool ... all in a very private setting. We felt like we were alone, yet surrounded with the most wonderful comforts to make it a truly special vacation. I highly recommend this home.

Great House...Great Location by Pat G. 06/24/2014
My son's wedding brought us to Calistoga at the end of June (2014) - booked the house for the long weekend. It was everything the pictures depict. Well furnished, kitchen well stocked, clean - lovely location. Nothing lacking. Easy 7 min. drive into the Town of Calistoga. Owner very easy to work with. Just a great place! Highly recommend the property.
A 5-Star Hotel by JC 06/05/2014
I recently rented this place for a group of friends to celebrate a birthday, and I do not hesitate to recommend this house to anyone looking to visit wine country. Not only is the location is great (very close to "downtown" Calistoga and St. Helena), Arthur has thought about everything to make the house a clean, comfortable and luxurious place to stay. The attention to quality and detail is unbelievable. The heated 2-level pool, outdoor fireplace, outdoor grill, hammock, tree-swing, tennis courts, iPad-controlled indoor/outdoor sound-system, surround-sound entertainment centers and soda machine that dispenses Coke in old-school bottles (!) are some of the amenities we found indispensable. Would give this place 6 stars if I could. Absolutely amazing. Can't wait to go back Arthur!

Exquisite Stay! by Hillary D. 05/29/2014
We returned a week ago from an extended wedding weekend stay. What a spectacular place! Our family of 11 adults adored this property, but I think the three young kids (ages 2-4) loved it even more. The pool is fantastic. Solar heated all day long, so it is a pleasant dipping temperature. The "Baja bench" area is perfect for non-swimmers and sunbathers. Most of the non-wedding memories are from time spent lounging around the pool and floating on the mats. This property seems to have been built for entertaining. Everywhere you turn, there are plenty of seats and chairs for impromptu gatherings. One other reviewer said it, but the owner has exquisite modern taste. The artwork is beautiful, the furnishings are gorgeous, and yet it still feels open, clean, and totally luxurious. I'd recommend this treasure to anyone. We had grandparents who would visit us during the day (not staying with us), and they were blown away by our accommodations. Thanks Arthur! Everything from Diana Kroll Pandora playing in the pool area to the fire pit and hanging swing in the front yard made for such a memorable stay. We hope to return!!!

Fantastic Wedding Accomodations! by Kimberly K. 05/27/2014
This property would honestly be pretty perfect for just about any get away: vacationing families, couples retreat, wine country adventure, family reunions etc... but we chose to host our small wedding here and it was nothing short of amazing! The property owner went above and beyond to ensure that every detail was taken care of prior to our arrival: even going so far as to power wash the driveway himself! We hosted our families- who hadn't met prior to the weekend- at the house and with six large bedroom each with their own bathrooms, it accommodated us all very nicely. Everyone had enough space and felt that they had privacy when needed and with several communal areas could also be social when each wanted to as well. The setting for the ceremony and reception was gorgeous and the large property provided room enough for guests to move easily from one location to the next providing them with a truly unique yet intimate experience. As mentioned, we had family in from out of town and the goal was to provide an authentic Napa valley/wine country atmosphere: Something elegant but unpretentious and that is exactly how everyone: family and friends alike described their experience. Each and every guest raved about how beautiful the property was and how well appointed the house itself is. (The homeowner has really spectacular taste). We can't say enough about how great our experience was with both the property as well as the homeowner himself. We can't wait to stay again!!!

This house is as great as the pictures show. We had six couples stay here, and the house served all of us very well. This location served as our base for our Napa and Sonoma winery visits. While a bit of a drive, the rental was a great oasis to return to. The kitchen is outstanding.

Outstanding House and Property by Ali 08/29/2013
This house leaves nothing to be desired. The inside is well laid out-- 3 bedrooms and bathrooms on one wing and 3 bedrooms and bathrooms on an opposite wing so noone felt on top of one another. The house is well-stocked from hairdryers and more than enough towels in every bathroom to ample laundry detergent, a full-stocked kitchen, and tennis rackets and balls with which to hit. It is also fully wired. There are many different areas around the inside and outside of the house that make it relaxing and private if that's what you'd like. The house is in outstanding condition- in fact the pictures don't do the interior or exterior justice.

Wine Country Ranch Rental by Leslie 08/06/2013
We rented this house over the summer to celebrate our mother's 65th birthday. In short it was an AMAZING vacation. We had a group of 8 adults and 5 children all under the age of 5 and it was the perfect rental for us. The home is gorgeous, modern, and had plenty of space to accommodate the whole group. We loved the large kitchen, having 2 dishwashers was a great perk! We had been looking for a vacation rental where we could entertain the whole family without leaving the property (not always easy with the amount of little ones we had with us), this home hit the mark. We spent the week swimming, taking nature walks, and exploring the property. It was great to be able to spend so much time outdoors, waking up to have coffee on the deck while watching the deer wander by, afternoons in the pool, and sitting by the fire pit at night after having had dinner outside. Arthur was very accommodating and helpful as well. We hope to return to this property again in the future.

Awesome House by Rishi J. 07/11/2013
I have been remiss on not writing this review earlier. We stayed at Arthur's magnificent house last summer for a week and enjoyed the week very much. In fact we never ended up leaving the house it was so great. We had 3 couples in the group each with children. Everything from the tennis courts to the pool to the hammock were spectacular. Inside is very modern and there is plenty of space outside to read a book or enjoy the company of others. Definitely a great find!
