Villa Tranquila was the perfect rental for a perfect week. The group included 5 adults. Everyone was satisfied with the sleeping and living arrangements. The only downfall was the 2.5 bathrooms - one more full bath would have been great. The kitchen and open breakfast area was great for talking while cooking.

Because of the weather we were not able to fully enjoy the outdoor seating area however it looked beautiful.

The house is outside of the more familiar wine country towns however the town of Guerneville is cute and there are great restaurants and vineyards within 20 mins.

"Amazing weekend in Wine Country"

5 of 5

Villa Tranquila is the perfect place to stay for a group of 10-12. We stayed the weekend for the Healdsburg Half Marathon and 5k. The house has plenty of space and a beautiful yard. The weather cleared up a bit and we were able to enjoy the hot tub to relieve our sore muscles. The house is located in a quiet area and the perfect escape from the busy city of SF. It was conveniently located near wineries and a short drive away to Healdsburg square.The hosts were very responsive and reached several times to answer any questions we had and to make sure everything went well. This was the second year my group of friends has stayed at Villa Tranquila and we will hopefully be back again. We would definitely recommend it!

"The perfect place for a bachelorette weekend!"

5 of 5

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++.

"Great house!"

4 of 5

Great house in a great location. Very peaceful backyard with a hammock and nice hot tub. The kitchen was very nice, with a professional stove top and ovens. The bedrooms were also nice. Six of us stayed here and we all felt like we had plenty of space. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because the grill was broken--and we had brought alot of very good steak to cook on the grill. The owners are very responsive and nice and I would definitely stay here again.

Manager Response:

Hello!
Thanks for the review! Villa Tranquila is a great house - I'm sorry to hear about the BBQ... It was working before your stay (just one burner was not 100%) but we're always happy to get someone out to fix something if you call during your stay too. We even have a loaner BBQ at the office just in case!

"An Exceptional 50th Birthday Celebration"

5 of 5

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.

Manager Response:

Happy Birthday! How great that you got to celebrate this milestone at such a beautiful home! I love that Villa Tranquila has a fire-pit, and thank you for including a photo of it in action. I'm surprised that Safeway was out of firewood, however the temperature does have a tendency to dip rather unexpectedly this time of year, causing a run on supplies. There are other places to get firewood here in town - the hardware store on River Rd and a ranch off of Hwy 116. - and you can also frequently find some at the little markets and convenience stores nearby. Next time, just give us a call and we can direct you to the nearest source!

Thank you for choosing Russian River Vacation Homes!

"Simply awesome!"

5 of 5

We were here with a group of friends for a weekend of R&R.; I agree with all the reviews mentioned before. This house is perfect for relaxing, enjoying nature, easy access to Guernville. We had a great time.

Manager Response:

Glad you enjoyed your stay at Villa Tranquila! One of the coolest things about this home is that it is so accessible to town and local amenities, yet it still feels like a "retreat."

Thank you for staying with us!

"Russian River Jazz/Blues Festival"

5 of 5

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.

Manager Response:

Hello!
Thank you for sharing! Villa Tranquila is a perfect choice for the Jazz and Blues Festival - we're so glad you shared the experience! And it was a great festival this year... Even from the very crowded river in a kayak!

"Great Place!"

4 of 5

Villa Tranquila was a great place to stay and I would recommend this house to friends and families. Spacious layout and an amazing back yard. Perfect for multiple couples or a big family. Looking forward to renting it again. Ps, The next door neighbors dog likes to bark in the early morning hours..Not sure if this happens all the time?

"Great chillaxin"

5 of 5

Great place to come with a medium size group. Large public spaces both indoor and out, with room to spread out. We came up with several families with kids, and had a great time. Weather was perfect an spent the evenings outside watching sun go down through the redwoods, and then beverages under the stars.Small hike to get to town/beach but not far, and also makes the house a little more isolated/private. Great kitchen indoor and out to cook for large groups.

"Perfect getaway"

4 of 5

The Villa Tranquila was a perfect way for a group of girlfriends to get out of the city and enjoy all that the Russian River Valley has to offer. The home is spacious and inviting; only a quick drive to some of our favorite vineyards. The large kitchen and outdoor grill are ideal for making a memorable home-cooked meal, and the hot tub was a nice treat in the morning and evening.

Manager Response:

Hello!
Thanks for the great review and we're glad you had such a great time as well!

"Everything you want, tastefully done and very reasonably priced"

5 of 5

I stayed here for a weekend with 10 friends for my 30th birthday. The service was great leading up to the stay (and during) and we loved the place. It is pushed back from the street so feels very private. The place is really solid and decently luxurious while still being homey and comfy. The kitchen was extremely well-stocked which we really appreciated. The jacuzzi is great as are the bedrooms. Loved that the music is set to play all over the house (and outside), though the fact that we weren't supposed to have music outside at night made it difficult as we couldn't find a way to turn off only those speakers. I will definitely be back to villa tranquila!

Manager Response:

Hi!
Thank you for the great review! We'll look at those speakers... But we're so glad you enjoyed Villa Tranquila!

"Wow - Amazing place!"

5 of 5

We were looking for a well-located area where group of close friends could enjoy some R&R.; This place fit the bill amazingly! The house is absolutely gorgous, in a super central location for visiting wineries, forest, river, etc. Large kitchen for making great meals and a jucuzzi hottub for soaking in the evening. I can't rave enough about our stay here...highly recommend.

"Fabulous getaway homebase!"

5 of 5

This place was a great location for a recent group weekend in Russian River. The only thing it's missing is a pool. The kitchen is gorgeous, the house spacious, well set up with everything needed, etc. Highly recommended, and we will likely be back!

Manager Response:

Hello!
And thank you for sharing your review! And we'll pass on your pool-thoughts to the owners... I'm not sure if the hill will take it, but it would be lovely!

"Excellent choice for large families or reunions"

5 of 5

We were a very large group of friends with toddler and preschool children who gathered for a little reunion for a long weekend. The Villa was a great choice. It is large, spacious and well equipped. We especially enjoyed the lovely yard where the kids played and laughed. The outdoor dining table was wonderful for al fresco meals. And the beds were comfortable. With the exception of not being able to find a strainer for pasta in the kitchen we had no complaints. The location is great, just a short walk down the hill. The climb back up could be challenging to those out of shape so plan accordingly! Overall, I'd highly recommend this rental!

Manager Response:

Hello!
Thank you for such a specific review! And for letting us know the colander has gone missing! We'll get a new one... And I recommend the local taxi for the walk back up the hill, personally!

"Awesome!"

5 of 5

The house is beautiful! Nice surroundings, equiped with anything a homeowner would need to stay for all our family! We were there for our oldest son's marriage at a winery nearby. Even the little grandchildren loved the house and playing out in the backyard. My only regret was that we should have stayed longer!

Manager Response:

Thank you!

We love Villa Tranquila too!
I hope we'll see you again!

"Very peaceful, tranquil stay!"

5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much! It was a family gathering for my family, sisters, parents. We came from all over and really enjoyed the home and stay together! Loved the backyard! Felt that the kitchen could have been stocked more with utensils, everyday stuff, but was fine. We would come back here again! It was our first time to Russian River, and loved it! Thanks for making it memorable!

Manager Response:

Hi!

Thank you for leaving such a lovely review! I'll pass on your suggestion for the kitchen... All the minimums are covered, so we'll see what can be added. We look forward to seeing you again!

"Gorgeous Getaway"

5 of 5

Our group of 12 were all first-timers to this property and we all hope to stay here again. The house is gorgeous, the grounds are inviting and well-maintained and the location can't be beat. Each bedroom was extremely comfortable and the kitchen is perfect for accommodating a large group. The house has a lovely villa feel with lots of light and warmth and was well-stocked with everything we needed. We cannot wait to book another trip to Villa Tranquila.

Manager Response:

Hello!

And thank you for the lovely review... Villa Tranquila is GREAT!

"Guerneville Bliss"

5 of 5

We shared the villa with some friends, and it was a blast. The interior details are amazing. The master bedroom's bathroom is a peaceful getaway. The villa is large enough for a big group or a family getaway. We'll be back.

Hello!

We're so glad you enjoyed Villa Tranquila! I hope we'll see you soon!

"Meca for Lasting Memories Shared with Long Time Friends"

A group of friends from around the us met for a wonderful stay at Villa Tranquilla. The house, chef style kitchen and outdoor areas formed a perfect arena for long dinners in the dining room, wine on the patio and in the spa, and trips to explore the wonderful wineries in the Russian River and surrounding areas. The group will return again before too long to repeat this fantastic week.
