Charming house with wood-burning stove in a quiet neighborhood close to small playground with basketball net. Movies, games, poker chips and felt table top, and books for all ages. Enjoy the views from inside the house, or from the brick-paver patio and upper and lower decks.

Le logement

Relax among the redwoods in your riverfront cottage with brick paver patio, deck with hot tub, and private dock with three kayaks. In the winter months, curl up with a good book near the fire in the wood stove while you listen to the rain. There are tons of wineries to check out and lots of information and discount coupons at the house. We have four bicycles (3 adult size and 1 youth size) for exploring the neighborhood or riding into town for an ice cream cone. Or go for a hike in the redwoods at Armstrong State Park or at one of the Sonoma coast beaches. You are surrounded by lots of mature landscaping, flowers, majestic redwoods & fruit trees striking the perfect balance of sun and shade.

The first thing you'll notice when you enter the house are the beautiful dark wood flooring and floor to ceiling windows overlooking the river and trees creating a cozy zen-like atmosphere.

The upstairs has two spacious bedrooms each with Queen beds and new fluffy comforters. Both bedrooms have lots of windows and one has a large deck overlooking the river--perfect for enjoying a morning cup of coffee. There is a small bedroom downstairs with Twin bunk beds.

The main living areas are downstairs with an open floor plan. The living room has floor-to-ceiling windows on one end and a wood-burning stove on the other end. There is an adjoining dining room with room for eight people. The dining room opens out onto the brick paver patio with lovely views of the river.

The kitchen is well-stocked with all the essentials (cookware, coffee, tea, spices, olive oil, etc.), stainless steel refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, coffee grinder, blender, waffle-maker and toaster oven. There is an adjoining breakfast nook with pub table seating for four and two extra folding chairs in the garage.

The bathroom is located downstairs and has a large vanity area and shower. It is well stocked with plenty of bath and spa/beach towels. There is also a private outdoor shower on the deck by the hot tub.

The patio is equipped with a propane BBQ grill, table and seating for eight, and porch swing for two. There are stairs off of the patio down to the dock where the kayaks (two single and one double) are tied up in the summer. In the other seasons, the kayaks are kept in the river or on the property depending on the water level of the river. There is an outdoor fire pit area with logs and marshmallow sticks available.

Located in the heart of the Sonoma wine country, on the Russian River, this home is the perfect location to visit the many local wineries, go for a swim, kayak, bike, visit the ocean, hike in the redwoods, or just relax and do nothing but enjoy the river and watch the local wildlife. Blue heron sightings are common especially down at Vacation Beach which is a half block walk from the house. There is also a small kids playground at Vacation Beach.

Modern comforts include High Speed Wi-Fi and HD Flat Screen TV with cable, DVD player, plus iPod/iPhone ready speaker. There are also lots of books, movies and games to choose from.

Nearby areas of interest include the world renowned Russian River and Dry Creek Wine regions (15 min), Armstrong State Park with the giant redwoods (10 min), Sonoma County ocean beaches (20 min), and restaurants, shopping, antiques, fishing, hiking, biking, tennis, golf and miniature golf.

Spent 8 days here in late August, family of 5, and had a great time. Hosts were easy to communicate with and everything was as advertised. The biggest pros are proximity to the river with kayaks available, well-stocked kitchen, hot tub, fire pit, outdoor eating area, outdoor shower, proximity to the Northwood golf course (which is amazing)... The wildlife on the river is plentiful: great blue herons (including a semi-resident at the summer dam, some locals tell me his name is Luigi!), green herons, great egrets, osprey (nest in a tree on the other side of the river), otters, cormorants, ducks, turkey vultures, seagulls, blue jays, etc). Highly recommended.

Suzi and David's place is super cute. Check-in was really quite simple and we felt that things were accurately described. Pros: location, location, location right on the water, well appointed kitchen, a fantastic outdoor shower complete with shampoo, conditioner and body wash! (having only 1 bathroom and 6 people was NEVER an issue and we loved being outside for a shower), the spa is amazing, having access to the three kayaks was a HUGE hit. The double kayak fit myself, my teenager and my 7 year old (in between). We used the kayak's literally every single day we were there. We also loved how there was so many board games available. Suzi and David were easy to work with. There was an issue with the spa but someone came to fix it very quickly and we were only without the spa for one night. We also loved the fire pit. We sat around and told ghost stories and roasted marshmallows Cons: While we loved the home and would love to go back, there were at few things that were sort of a bummer. Certainly no fault of the owners but we were somewhat disappointed at how loud the road was on the other side of the river. This would likely be an issue with any house on the Russian River but we have never been there so didn't know. We were traveling with my parents who are in their 70's. Accessing the kayak's and getting in and out of the water was very difficult for them as there was no ladder. My parents didn't go in the water the last two days because they had such difficulty. We utilized all the beds and while I found the bed I slept in tolerable, it wasn't overly comfortable. My parents had a more difficult time getting comfortable in their bed and didn't sleep well that last could nights. Again, much of this could be preference. I would recommend bringing your own pillow as the pillows were quite flat. Overall an amazing location, an amazing river, close to the ocean (only 20 minutes) and close to wine tasting. We had a great time and made many family memories.

Réponse de Suzi & David :
We are happy to report that we now have a ladder on the dock to make getting in and out of the river easier for our guests. We are sorry the road noise was a concern for this guest but as she said, it is an issue for most of the homes along the river. We are happy our house is not on a busy street and that you can't see the road from our home. As far as the beds and pillows, it is a matter of personal preference. A prior guest asked us what brand of mattress we had in the River View bedroom as she had such a good sleep there. Also, there are many pillows on the beds to choose from and extras in the closet, but we agree nothing is better than your very own pillow!

Could not recommend this place highly enough. I've stayed in many AirBnB's and have never come across one so well stocked and clean. Suzi and David have thought of everything! This is more than just a beautiful home with a river view. With all the amenities there's no need to leave! We enjoyed the hot tub amongst the trees. We made an evening fire in the outdoor pit and cooked smores. We enjoyed morning coffee on the balcony. We also kayaked and swam in the river. On top of that Suzi and David were excellent to communicate with. Thanks so much!

I've been to many vacation rentals in the area. I can certainly tell you this is one of the better, if not the best place I've been to. I'm sure all of my friends who stayed on this trip can attest to that as well. The love that David and Suzi put into this house really shows, down to the fine details. First off, the location really can't be beat, -being right on the river and so close to downtown.(about 5 min. drive) My friends and I usually spend an equal amount of time in town as we do the house we're staying at. So we get a good combination of rest/relaxation and also the perks of eating out and hiking in Armstrong, or out and about exploring what Guerneville has to offer. We loved this house so much, that we rarely left the entire duration of our stay. If you book here, you won't find yourself the slightest bit bored at any time. I couldn't believe everything was so readily available. From the hot tub under the beautiful towering redwoods, the fire pit and riverfront, the bikes with helmets in the garage... to the beautiful relaxing home, with anything you could possibly need. sigh. typing about it makes me miss it already. We made great use of pretty much everything the house had to offer, except the fire pit, which we plan on using the next trip. David and Suzi we're quick to answer any questions I had, and even let me check in early when i requested. Very accommodating and sincere hosts. The only recommendation I have would be to add a handrail down the steep steps to the river. It does take some concentration and balance, but nothing too difficult. I read most of the reviews on this house before booking, and you can tell David and Suzi are constantly working on improvements and adding more things they think their guests would love. We will most definitely be back. I almost want to say this house is horrible, and rate it low, so I can have it all to myself ;) but that just wouldn't be fair. Thank you David and Suzi for a getaway to remember. See you soon!

We had a fantastic time. The rental was a perfect base camp for a family getaway and Suzi and Dave were very helpful and accommodating.

We rented this place for my mom who it in her 80's and cannot deal with stairs. There were a couple of steps up to the house that I was informed of ahead of time and one down to the deck, so it was fairly easy for her to get about and everything she needed was on one level. The bedroom on the ground floor is small and wheelchair access was a bit tight, but she managed to do fine. the house is beautiful on the inside and the outdoor space out back is really nice. Great views of the river.

We are transplants from the midwest now living in Berkeley, California. We feel blessed to own such a perfect getaway in the Sonoma wine country on the Russian River less than 90 miles from San Francisco. We enjoy hearing that our guests enjoy our home and surrounding area as…
