Villa Tranquila is a home of historical beauty. With stained glass windows, original interior artwork and spectacular grounds, this luxurious home is a vacation destination all in itself. For one looking for elegance, privacy and convenience of location, there is no need to look further.
Downstairs: The living room features a large river rock fireplace, comfortable seating arrangements and a large flat screen TV. Numerous windows and doors look out to the back yard and gracious archways lead to the hallway to one side and the dining room to the other. The mahogany dining set seats 12. The dining room and hallway is the chef's delight; a gourmet kitchen with stainless appliances including a six burner Dacor Professional gas stove, a griddle and two ovens. Off the kitchen is a sunny breakfast nook. Continue through the breakfast nook, past the quaint side entrance way, to the master suite and the other downstairs bedroom. The master suite is spacious, with a fireplace, king bed, French doors to the back deck and an entertainment system with a flat screen television. Off the master bedroom is the master bath, with a double vanity and a dual-head walk-in shower. The master bathroom also has a door into the hallway, so it can be easily shared with the occupants of the second bedroom, which has a king bed and a double futon. There is an additional half bathroom (toilet and sink) off the same hallway.
Upstairs: Stairs from the front hall lead to the upper level, which contains three more bedrooms and one full bathroom. The room at the end of the hall has a king bed and a flat screen TV. The second upstairs room has a queen bed and the third bedroom has two twin beds that can easily be converted into a king bed. All three bedrooms are filled with natural light and have views from their windows. The full bathroom has a separate shower and bathtub.
Exterior:Over 1/2 acre of gated grounds
Gated, landscaped grounds surround Villa Tranquila. The front circular driveway passes between a lovely garden and lawn and the front entranceway. The backyard is a tree-lined hideaway,with views of forested hills in the distance. The backyard consists of a large, in-deck 6 person spa, a dining patio with a state-of-the-art BBQ and smoker, chaise lounge chairs, decks, a large lawn,and a woodsy lower area with a fire pit. Villa Tranquila is located at the top of “the hill,” in a quiet and scenic neighborhood. It's a ten minute walk down to Guerneville's shopping, dining, nightlife and the Russian River.
Below are a few reviews for the home not available on VRBO!
"The home was beautiful, and the description was very accurate. I liked how big the backyard was, and had the kitchen was clearly labeled. The home provided us with a lot of blanket and pillow options which was much appreciated! I would definitely recommend this house to my friends and family!!"
"The house was an incredible space for spending the weekend! It easily accommodated 12 adults and provided everything we needed for making meals and relaxing. It's a great place!"
"From start to finish, Villa Tranquila (& Russian River Vacation Homes) was the perfect choice for a bachelorette weekend! From the comforts of the Villa to the wineries and beyond, we had a fantastic time! Russian River Vacation Homes was great to work with and provided excellent service. We chose the wine country for my sisters bachelorette weekend. Her friends flew into SF, we rent two vans and made our way to Guerneville, a quaint little town in Sonoma Wine Country. The Villa offered plenty of room with all the amenities and necessities (well stocked kitchen was a plus)!! We will use Russian River Vacation Homes again!! Only one wish - one more bathroom in this Villa. Three bedrooms shared one small bathroom. We survived, but one more full bathroom would make this Villa 5star++." —A FlipKey verified reviewer on 11/20/2013

We are Russian River Vacation Homes, a part of D&G Equity Management, Inc., a family owned and locally owned/operated property management company.
In 1980, D&G founders and owners Michael and Patty saw a need in the area for habitable, affordable housing. At that time, many of the little cabins along the Russian River, originally built as summer cabins, were unsuitable for year-round occupancy. D&G assisted property owners with fixing up and renting their cabins. As the largest property management company in western Sonoma County, D&G Equity Management continues to be a staple in the Russian River community.
Russian River Vacation Homes is an off-shoot of D&G. One fine day in 1985, Michael's client, Bob, asked "Hey Mike, can you rent my cabin out just for the week or weekend instead of by the month?" Michael said "Sure!" and Russian River Vacation Homes was born. As renting vacation rentals became more popular, Russian River Vacation Homes grew into a full-time business with its own office. Today, Russian River Vacation Homes professionally manages over 60 high-quality vacation rentals.
We strive to make each and every stay the best one ever. If you have any questions or concerns about reserving or staying with us, please don't hesitate to contact us! We are here to help.

Why we love Villa Tranquila!-
If you're looking for elegance, privacy and convenience of location, there is no need to look further.
Villa Tranquila is a great home for families and groups of friends! It has ample space to spread out, and the living and dining areas are large enough for the whole group.
Villa Tranquila is just a short walk from downtown Guerneville and the Russian River, and a short drive to amazing hiking in Armstrong Woods and Austin Creek State Recreation area.
Villa Tranquila is also a great wine tasting headquarters! Russian River Valley wineries are just 15 minutes away.
I celebrated my 50th birthday with my husband and 5 other friends in this house, which is where we were married in 2008.
The setting is incredible(being almost right in the Redwood forests of Northern California), the house is charming, great amenities, and so close to the wineries and ocean.
We used the spa, which was very nice, and the firepit.
Also, having bedrooms somewhat separated (2 down and 3 up) was really nice.
Guerneville is a little out of the way for those wanting more "action" like in Napa, Sonoma, or say Healdsburg, but it's perfect for what we wanted.
The only negative,if there was one, we had to obtain firewood and the local Safeway was out, so we had to make do the first night and wait to get some the next day.
The living room was large and comfortable, the dining room held 10 of us easily, the kitchen was well equipped for cooking.
Loved the house, the yard, the location. I would definitely recommend this house to family and friends.
Great house. More than enough room for our party of 12. The backyard was great, especially with the hot tub and grill outside. The house is clean and well stocked with spices, pots, and pans.
Our party went floating on the river and easily walked the ~0.5 miles back to the house from Johnson's beach. We would definitely come back!
We had 10 people attending the Russian River Jazz/Blues Festival and needed a comfortable house to accommodate everyone for 4 days. The house was perfect and had enough room for everyone. The backyard was wonderful. We would definitely recommend this house and we will be booking again.
