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!!

Since its opening in 2008, 80+ guest reviews confirm Dry Creek Villa 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!

Dry Creek Villa Healdsburg

  • 5 of 5
A great getaway! The "villa" is located on the owners property surrounded by grape vines! The location, in the hills above WestDryCreek Rd is a world away from from the busyness of the valley below. Whether sitting out on the deck or in the hot tub in the evening, you may hear frogs, crickets and occasional coyote. You won't have to drive far to some great wineries in the Dry Creek Valley. Only a 4-5 mile drive into Healdsburg's eateries and shopping. The house is fully equipped for cooking or barbecuing. After visiting wineries during the day, the villa is a great place to return and relax!

Charming, accessible villa with gorgeous views!

  • 5 of 5
I booked this property for my hubby's 40th birthday and it exceeded our expectations. It is situated on a vineyard hill with gorgeous views. The villa itself is clean and cheerful - filled with lots of light. The living room and outdoor patio become one great room when the french doors are open. The kitchen and outdoor grill worked well for dining in after a day of wine tasting in fabulous Dry Creek and Alexander Valley wine country. Our hosts were attentive and accommodating, even climbing onto the roof when the satellite reception was not working. Fresh flowers greeted us on arrival and were a welcome perk. I have already told friends we need to return and hope it is soon!

Owner's Response: We're glad you enjoyed the birthday weekend and that we were able to make sure the satellite allowed March Madness viewing to continue! See you again.
cheers.

Diane and Paul and our two college kids from Minnesota

  • 5 of 5
Being from Minnesota, we were in search of sunshine and a green countryside. We found both and an extraordinary view from Scott and Bill's villa! Having spent several days in San Fran, the Dry Creek Valley wine country was a needed change. The villa was perfect with lovely flowers in pots and growing naturally as wildflowers along the roadside. The villa was beautifully appointed, comfortable, and perfect for the four of us. We enjoyed sitting on the terrace and were frankly, reluctant to leave to go to the various vineyards. The stars at night were spectacular - especially from the comfort of the hot tub. We would definitely return. And it is the perfect respite from city life but with great access to the lovely town of Healdsburg and many, many wineries!

Great Stay

There's plenty of 5 star reviews here, so I won't repeat the same stuff. We spent a magical 2 days, it was way too short and can't wait to go back

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Bill and Scott were incredibly responsive, friendly and helpful before, during and after our stay at their lovely villa house. We came during an unusually stormy weekend and the power on their entire street had been knocked out the morning we were due to arrive. Scott notified us in advance and had many ideas about how to either keep our plans or modify them, including offering to cover a night at a local well known hotel if we preferred. The power came back on so it was a non-issue, but the villa had plenty of lanterns and it was so comfortable I'm sure we would have been just fine without electricity. Due to the owners' proximity to the villa and responsive communication, this minor blip had no impact on what turned out to be a really perfect weekend stay. The views are great (even with cloudy weather), we were grateful for the option to have our dog with us, the kitchen was well equipped, and the house itself was cozy and comfortable. My only disappointment was that we didn't make the time to enjoy the hot tub because we were too busy chatting inside drinking wine. I especially loved the remote-feeling location, despite being not too far from lots of wineries and places to eat, etc.

Thanks Bill and Scott! I'm optimistic that we'll find another excuse to return.

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5
First Bill our host responded quickly to all email and questions prior to our stay. He was very friendly and helpful. The place was outstanding. Comfy beds.
Beautiful sweeping views in all directions. Quiet and peaceful. Clean and all the amenities you could need. Hot Tub under the stars was a great way to end a day of local wine tasting. Close to many vineyards. Morning coffee on the deck in a sunbeam. Truly relaxing.
