About Matthew Demchuk

This has been our families home since 1986 when my mother decided they didn't want to rent a place in St. Helena any more and bought the quaint little 2 bedroom 2 bath home on Tainter Street. I have lived here in St. Helena since 1990 and am currently raising my three young daughters here in this idyllic place we call home.

Why Matthew Demchuk chose Saint Helena

This property was purchased by my parents in 1986 as a weekend getaway. They eventually remodeled the home in the early 1990's with the intent to eventually retire here. Didn't quite work out that way, but now this home is available as a fantastic short term rental and is one of only 25 permitted Short Term Rentals in St. Helena. This property has many unique features and is suitable for adult couples or families.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

This home is wonderful for entertaining and is designed to truly enjoy the outdoors. There is a full size bocce court, with balls, in the backyard, as well as a fire pit and BBQ. There is private patio with a dining table near the hammock. Both of which are under a tremendous Elm Tree that is one of the largest in town. With a large back deck and outdoor dining table, meals can be enjoyed while taking in the sunset. Indoors, you will find an amazing kitchen with two separate cooking and prep areas. Perfect for the inner chef in all of us. There are also three fireplaces located inside. The home is located just a block from downtown St. Helena and all of it's shops, restaurants and tasting rooms.

Lovely home!

  • 5 of 5

Such a lovely home and convenient location! We walked downtown easily to enjoy the quaint shops and businesses. We especially enjoyed the English muffins from Model Bakery and the unique hot chocolate at Woodhouse Chocolates! The home was a perfect set up for three couples!

Beautiful house in a wonderful location!!!

  • 5 of 5

The property is very pretty, fun house for a group who enjoys playing boccee ball, sitting by the fire both inside and out and enjoying a huge great room to play games! The rooms all have beautiful redone bathrooms and the balcony off the master is amazing! This house will not disappoint! We loved every minute!

Quiet Neighborhood Close to Town

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in St. Helena. I wish we could have had more time to take advantage of the well stocked kitchen and the wonderful back yard. This property is within walking distance to a fantastic grocery, coffee shops, bakeries and main street. We would defiantly stay here again!
