About this listing
Rio Lindo is the ideal spot for couples, families, and friends to get away from the hustle and bustle of life!
Rio Lindo is a beautifully remodeled riverfront two-bedroom one-bath vacation rental. Tucked away in a quiet Russian River neighborhood in the small town of Villa Grande, Rio Lindo is the ideal spot for couples, families, and friends to get away from the hustle and bustle of life. Rio Lindo guests are greeted by a charming, landscaped front walkway, which continues up a few stairs up to the front porch. The front door opens to a short hall leading to the bright open living, dining and kitchen area. A door from the living room leads out to the back deck, which is furnished with an outdoor dining set, a gas grill, and new spa. Stairs from the back deck lead to a large lawn, a great place to relax and play. A sturdy stairway and path leads down to private river access with a seasonal beach.
Rio Lindo's kitchen glows with dark granite counters, custom cherry wood cabinets and wonderfully crafted wine nook. Two bottles of complimentary wine are waiting for you in the fully equipped kitchen, that also offers new appliances and a dining table that seats 6 guests. The living room features large windows that overlook the back lawn and river. Rio Lindo's comfortable living room has 32" flat screen television and DVD/CD player. The sofa folds out to accommodate a single sleeper on a double bed. The light and airy bedrooms at Rio Lindo, each with a queen bed, are located opposite each other off the hall entrance. The bathroom is also off the hall and has a bathtub/shower combo.
