Property Details

Updated: Mar 26, 2015
House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)


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!

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

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.

Most amazing views you will find

  • 5 of 5
We loved this thoughtfully planned out guest home. Separate from the main residence, private, open and spacious; with the french doors that make up the front wide open, and cross breezes from the windows, you feel as if you are sitting outdoors, yet shaded and comfortable on even the sunniest day. The front balcony was a perfect place to spend time watching the sunset, the fog roll in and out, the numerous hills and mountains, hawks, and to enjoy the breeze announcing a coming rainstorm. Great nature watching.

The decor was very nice, there were beautiful orchids in each room, and we were greeted with fresh tulips in the great room. The landscaping on the property is gorgeous.

The bedrooms were spacious with ample windows, and the platform beds very comfortable (I want to know what kind of mattress that was). The large bathroom was airy and there was plenty of hot water.

The kitchen had almost everything one would need for cooking (which we mostly did as we had our dog with us and didn't want to leave her in her crate too much). Our pup wanted to go explore toward the owner's home, so we ended up keeping her on a leash outside. The owners were extremely easy to work with, very responsive, and their two Daschunds were adorable and non-intrusive.

There are a few small signs of wear and tear but the owners seem very responsive to guests' feedback and to keeping the experience excellent. Don't be deterred by the drive up to the property; we had no trouble in a Prius. It was a lovely 10' drive to Healdsburg and even less to the Dry Creek valley. Don't miss going to the Dry Creek General Store. Overall, we would love to go back.

The BEST Villa in Wine Country!

  • 5 of 5
Living in the Bay Area for the majority of my life, I've stayed at my fair share of places in wine country. However, Dry Creek Villa blows all other options out of the water! Tucked away atop of a secluded hill, the Villa boasts breathtaking views of rolling vineyards and beautiful scenery. The location is truly one-of-a-kind; not only does the Villa enjoy 360 views of wine country, it is also only a few short minutes from some of the best wineries in the world (Bella, Rochioli, Williams Selyem, just to name a few). The elegant french doors enhance the view and make the space light and inviting, guaranteeing the perfect stay for any guest. The owners were also extremely cordial and considerate, and I truly cannot give enough positive feedback from my experience. I would highly recommend Dry Creek Villa to any visitor, for any occasion, and I hope to return soon again myself!

Dry Creek Villa - Fabulous

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at Dry Creek Villa with another couple of Winter Wineland. We had a fantastic time. The house was fantastic, very clean and comfortable. The linens on the beds were so comfortable! I have stayed in other vacation rentals that left me feeling dirty and not wanting to touch anything. Dry Creek Villa felt like my own home. I was comfortable throughout. Thank you for such a great experience and an opportunity to reconnect with old friends.
