Healdsburg house description


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!
