MODERN SOPHISTICATED PRIVATE LUXURIOUS W/VIEWS & HOT TUB

Healdsburg House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

DEAR POTENTIAL GUEST: PLEASE CHECK CALENDAR BEFORE INQUIRING ABOUT AVAILABILITY - IT IS ALWAYS CURRENT. THANK YOU!!

Dry Creek Villa was completed during 2008. Since opening, 80+ guest reviews confirm the house to be a truly exceptional, idyllic retreat. The property consistently rates 5/5 stars from prior guests. Among the various comparable options in the Healdsburg environs, Dry Creek Villa is totally without comparison: Modern, private, sophisticated and luxurious. It is also a legal vacation property, something that rental houses advertised within Healdsburg City limits are not permitted for.

Perched on a hilltop about a mile up a rustic private road and behind automatic gates, this secluded & modern 2BR, 1BA guest house comfortably sleeps 4 - up to 6 people max - and is the perfect retreat in rural wine country. It's just 12 minutes to the downtown Healdsburg plaza and is very close to many award-winning wineries. Lake Sonoma is also 10 minutes up the valley. The iconic Dry Creek General Store is a short drive away.

The Villa's two stylish bedrooms are both furnished with contemporary queen-size platform beds, ultra-comfy premium mattress and quality linens for a restful night's sleep. There's also a clock radio dock for your iPod in each bedroom and room-darkening shades to enjoy a lazy morning in bed. Reading lamps help snuggle up with a book or magazine.

The spacious modern bathroom with vessel sink and over sized shower with room for two is not connected to either bedroom, making it convenient for all guests. Fluffy towels and robes make you feel right at home.

The full electric kitchen with granite counters comes complete with all the accessories to prepare light snacks or a complete gourmet feast, while a dishwasher helps make cleanup a breeze. Outdoors, there's a gas BBQ available seasonally to grill your favorite foods.

The vaulted, airy main room with its bamboo flooring has a rectangular dining table that seats up to six. There's also a pull-out sofabed that converts to an additional sleeping platform. Two comfy Fatboy beanbag chairs completely meld to your body after a full day of wine tasting. For entertainment, there's an AV receiver +iPod connection, and a flat screen TV with a DVD/VCR player and DirecTV satellite with 100's of channels including premium HBO/Showtime/ESPN for your viewing enjoyment. Board games, puzzles and reading materials round out the relaxation options. If business calls, there is a built-in desk for use with your laptop to connect to the available Wi-Fi broadband connection throughout the villa. Locals calls can also be made from the in-house phone.

After a long day's adventures, soak yourself in the secluded, six-person hot tub while viewing the the deep starry sky and then rinse off under the private outdoor hot-water shower. By prior arrangements made during your stay, you may also take a dip in the 48 ft. solar-heated lap swimming pool at the main house nearby on the property (from approximately May thru September). Guest passes to the full-featured Parkpoint Health Club in Healdsburg are also available for $20/person/visit.

For special insider tips and advice, take advantage of the owner's local knowledge to introduce you to winemakers, shop-owners and restaurants and other off-the-path info. We can even arrange to pre-stock the villa with items from your shopping list to make your arrival care-free and ready to relax. Wine country living doesn't get better than this!

The pictures shown are how you will find the Villa for your visit. Please email with any questions, or if you are in the area, call us to stop by for a look. We have taken great care to think of everything you'll need to make your wine country visit truly exceptional. Thanks for checking us out. We respond to all inquiries promptly.

Dry Creek Villa is operated in conformance with Sonoma County Zoning Code section 26-88-120 and required TOT license (#6O9N). Please note that the city of Healdsburg prohibits all vacation rentals. If you are considering a property advertised for rent within the city limits of Healdsburg, it is not legal to do so, and there have been cases of some renters being evicted by local authorities without recourse! Be diligent in your research of all Healdsburg rentals!

QUIET HILLTOP GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
Lavender Hill provides spectacular views, and no dinner reservations are not required ! Prepare your favorite meal and dine on the patio for breakfast, lunch or dinner, you won't be disappointed. We especially loved the outdoor shower and relaxing vibe this hilltop getaway provides. You'll also enjoy the close proximity to Healdsburg, a 15 minute drive to great restaurants, shopping and music on the square. This area is also a cyclists paradise with quick access to smooth quiets roads winding through beautiful green vineyards.

PERFECT LOCATION FOR DRY CREEK WINE TASTING

  • 5 of 5
An ideal location for a group of 4 people that want to enjoy a true wine tasting experience. The location in on a beautiful hill that overlooks vineyards, hills, and the valley. The house is super clean, fully stocked kitchen with every type of cookware that you could possible want/need. BBQ out front, go to John's Market in Healdsburg for fresh seafood, produce, cheeses, etc. The hot tub was a great way to start and end each day. We would recommend this spot to anyone that plans on visiting Sonoma. Also, you might be able to use the pool (salt water) if you ask the owners first.

COUPLES VACATION

  • 5 of 5
My sister and I planned this vacation with our husbands for anniversary celebrations. We loved staying at the Dry Creek Villa. It was perfect distance to the town of Healdsburg, vineyards, and centrally located for day trips to different areas. The villa had great views and was very comfortable! We would highly recommend staying here and would definitely go back again.

DRY CREEK HEAVEN

  • 5 of 5
Bill and Scott greeted us on arrival for a quick tour. While they were on the property, their house is far enough away that we felt secluded. The views are amazing, and one morning we awoke to fog in the valley as the sun rose behind the mountains...truly like heaven in dry creek. I would definitely stay here again.

A GREAT GETAWAY IN WINE COUNTRY

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I visited this house along with a friend and our dog and found this property to be a perfect place to have as home base before exploring the Healdsburg area. The drive up to the house is a bit tricky, but have faith and you'll reach the property eventually!

Once we made it, we found the house to be just what we needed. There's a great view from the front living room, we wanted to leave the huge french doors open all weekend. The living room and TV worked fine, the kitchen was well-appointed and the Wi-Fi worked well. The bedrooms were nearly identical and both comfortable, with plenty of sheets and blankets. The bathroom was clean and the shower was great, and there were plenty of towels available.

The outdoor amenities were great, as well -- the grill was conveniently located and worked fine, the hot tub was a perfect way to unwind at the end of the day, and the porch furniture was all in good shape and was ideal for having as many meals outside as possible.

Can't really think of any downsides... highly recommended! We'll be back hopefully :)

AMAZING WINE COUNTRY RETREAT MINUTES FROM DOWNTOWN HEALDSBURG

  • 5 of 5
Bill and Scott are great hosts, and just as important....completely professional and prompt in answering any and all questions you might have. They also have great recommendations on the area since they have been lived there for many years.

The villa is extremely private and has sweeping views. Though the vineyard is dormant since it is winter, it is still beautiful. The roughly 1.5 mile unpaved road to the property is nothing to worry about, especially if you have driven around the coast before and wouldn't let previous posts about the road deter you in any way. It's part of the charm.

The best part of our trip was easily being able to sit in the hot tub at night and watch the show above. Even though it's just minutes from fine dining and Wineries there was virtually no light pollution making star gazing a real treat.

We are looking forward to trying this place again during the summer or fall and highly recommend to anyone trying to stay away from chain hotels.
