About Paulina Humeres-Greene

We love the Napa Valley and can't imagine living anywhere else. My husband is retired from the shipping industry in San Francisco and I am a designer and realtor in town with

Coldwell Banker Brokers of the Valley. Have run Designs by Paulina LLC for the past 20+ years creating events and floral designs for a variety of clients in the valley, Sonoma county and San Francisco Bay Area. Now I am a full time realtor. We raised our daughter here in St. Helena who just finished college a couple of years ago.

Paulina Humeres-Greene purchased this farmhouse in 1985

Why Paulina Humeres-Greene chose Saint Helena

The location of our house is ideal, can walk everywhere, this is one of the main reasons why we bought this property. This town is charming, sophisticated yet simple and friendly and I love that it is also an agricultural community.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Few minutes from everything the town has to offer. Restaurants, parks, schools, playgrounds, movies, coffee houses, grocery stores, churches, library, Beringer Vineyards, Spottswoode Winery, CIA. Can take great hikes, long walks or bicycle rides on country lanes enjoying magnificent views and fantastic weather. If you want to venture out of town to Calistoga (north) to check out the mud baths or spend the afternoon at Solage Spa and Resort or go the opposite way to Yountville (south) to explore more restaurants, shopping, art galleries or perhaps a bit of golf, the ride is no longer than 15 minutes in either direction. The town bustles with activity and energy during the day, once 6 o'clock rolls in the town quiets down for your enjoyment of beautiful quiet evenings while sipping a glass of wine on the front porch, the back deck under the stately Oak or in front of the fireplace.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for allowing my family to spend my father's 60th birthday in your beautiful St. Helena home! The house was great in size and layout, and very well appointed. The fresh flowers were a lovely touch, especially since my father is an avid gardener. I wish that we had utilized the awesome back deck more. I almost forgot to mention how amazing the location was! Quiet St. just a couple blocks from everything. Really enjoyed walking to coffee, meals, and shopping. Everything was wonderful! We look forward to returning in a few years!

Casa Robles is beautiful inside and out. The house and property are clean, tasteful and inviting.

  • 5 of 5

We were five sisters-in-law spending the weekend In St Helena, wine tasting, eating and enjoying the beauty of Napa Valley. The moment I walked into Casa Robles, I knew I had made a great choice! Paulina was there to greet me and show me around. She was helpful and answered all my questions. She was easy to reach and immediately responsive.

The house is perfect! Clean, well maintained and has everything you could think of. The proximity to town is amazing. We walked everywhere from the house. Main St in St Helena has wonderful restaurants and wine bars, all accessible within a short walk.

I highly recommend this property and can’t wait to go back!

Wonderful family weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We visited Saint Helena and stayed at Casa Robles while attending a family wedding. The house was perfect for our family. Paulina was available for any needs/questions. The location was perfect - one block off Main St. We would love to stay there when we visit again!

Great House, Great Host, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Booked this house for a week while attending the NAPA Premier Auction. Paulina was very easy to deal with throughout the entire process. It is the perfect house for 3 couples or for a girl's getaway. Walking distance to great restaurants and wonderful shops. We thoroughly enjoyed and will return soon.

Our stay at Casa Robles

Great location in walking distance to charming downtown St Helena. Nicely appointed house and pleasant kitchen to cook as a group, with all amenities with beautiful backyard sitting area around a heritage oak tree. Had a weekend retreat for our company and we were all very satisfied. Will definitely return!
