Healdsburg house description

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!

                        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 :)

                        Owner response: Nathan, thanks for your kind comments. We're delighted you had a memorable experience and we hope to see you again.

                        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.

                        Owner response: We look forward to seeing you back again in the summer!

                        We stayed for 2 nights; the house is extremely comfortable and clean. The owners have created a well-appointed and organized rental home that is easy to move right into and feel comfortable right away. The views are tremendous and is far enough from town to feel like you are in the wilderness, but close enough to get to restaurants, shopping and wineries very easily. Thank you and we hope to return!

                        This is our second year staying at Lavender Hill. It was a wonderful stay - a perfect base from which to cycle, taste wine and experience beautiful Dry Creek and the surrounding area. Scott and Bill are always welcoming - flowers and figs this year...including a great recipe for grilled figs - now in our permanent recipe collection! We took advantage of their knowledge of Healdsburg and found new favorites. Ending our days with a hot tub soak under the stars cannot be beat. You will not be disappointed with a stay at Lavender Hill!

                        Fantastic place to stay while exploring Healdsburg, Dry Creek and surrounding areas. Amazing, private location nestled in a private vineyard. Pet friendly- our dog had great freedom to hang in the sun. Well-appointed kitchen, bedrooms and bath. Bill & Scott were helpful, accommodating and friendly. We would love to stay again.

                        We had such a wonderful time. The house was just far enough off of the beaten path to provide the perfect private getaway for my best friend's bachelorette party. Scott and Bill were so friendly and offered wonderful suggestions for places to eat on our first night in Sonoma. Incredible views, impeccably clean, everything we could have hoped for.

                        We had a wonderful stay at the villa during our week in Wine Country. The view is absolutely amazing and it is so quiet. We enjoyed having the amenities of the villa, which made the stay that much better. We will definitely stay there again on our next trip to the area.

                        Lovely lovely stay, in a beautiful place. Our hosts were so gracious and accommodating. And the view and availability of activities from wine tasting, eating in nearby Healdsburg and cycling, exceeded our expectations. We really appreciated all the flowers blooming in pots, or in vases! Such a welcoming gesture.

                        We spent two wonderful days in this excellent Villa outside of Healdsburg-Dry Creek Valley. The location, although a bit challenging to drive up to, was well worth the effort. The owners have done a wonderful job designing and building what amounts to Tuscany in Sonoma County. From the hillside vistas to the comfort in the bedding and topped off by a hot tub in a vineyard it was an exceptional experience! The listing and photos was very accurate. It was clean and well maintained and close to shopping,dining and wine tasting. I would certainly recommend this properrty! Many thanks to Bill and Scott!
