Great stay and great home. The hot tub was perfect and the yard is to die for!
Lovely space. My guests and I really enjoyed the view of the river, the large dining table and the ample amount of parking. Everything was fully stocked and nicely kept up.
The Swquoia Beach Dreamery was such a unique experience. The level of attention to details is amazing -- as you keep looking around especially outside, you see more and more little things that add to the beauty of the place. You have a beautiful creek in the backyard! And a hot tub where you can look up and see the moon rising from the tall trees. Mesmerizing place.
Beds are very comfortable, living room gives you ample and comfortable space, and the kitchen has everything you need. We could not ask for more.
The owner was very kind to send us details about the area, trails, etc in advance. And, the staff at River Homes Russian River Vacation Homes were a joy to do business with.
All in all, an A+ experience. You won't be disappointed!
This is a great little spot in an ideal residential area of Guerneville. The house is actually much nicer and cozier that the pictures seem to show. The interior has tons of warmth and comfort and the kitchen has almost anything you'd need. The property looks great and the hosts made it super convenient to close up and check-out.
The house is right on the river on a street just off 116. It doesn't get better than that if you're looking for some time on the Russian River. The back terrace/porch is super spacious, isolated by tall sequoias, with great views and a hot tub. With plenty of room for 6 or more, we'd book again in a heartbeat.
The house was the perfect location for our girls weekend away! The kitchen was wonderfully equipped for a large group to make a meal together, and the space was awesome for a group of 8. We will definitely be back! Check in was very easy because of the key code and all of the instructions were very clear. The house was clean and the location could not have been better - a short 5 minute drive to the cute downtown. Thanks for an awesome stay!
Castle Crag was amazing! I celebrated my birthday there, and it was better than expected. The house had amazing views, was well stocked, and communication with River Homes was always great and quick. I would definitely stay there again, and recommend to my friends.
The Austin Creekside Retreat offered the perfect weekend getaway from San Francisco. The home is surrounded by Sequoias on a very private wooded lot next to Big Austin Creek. The photos don't do it justice- the decor was chosen with care and definitely feels like a home rather than a vacation rental. The house was spacious and well-furnished with plenty of room for 6 in 2 bedrooms and a loft. The jacuzzi on the deck offered a perfect vantage point for stargazing.
We were within a short drive of restaurants in Guerneville, the quaint shops in Duncan Mills, and the spectacular coastline in Jenner. Overall, I can't recommend Austin Creekside Retreat highly enough, and Russian River Homes made our stay easy and delightful.
The pictures don't give this house justice. The place is perfect for a weekend getaway. I think I was spoiled because the last two guests stayed or thanksgiving and christmas. This would be a wonderful place to host the holidays. I was worried there wouldn't be enough silverware or plates but I was wrong. There's plenty! The hot tub was perfect. The number of bathrooms and supply of towels, etc is great. The owner had games spread throughout the house so we were never bored. The kitchen had everything you needed to cook a delicious meal as well as the BBQ being ready to use! We brought a dog and the entire house is fenced in which is great. It's a narrow uphill road to get to the house but it's a short stretch and worth me being a little scared. The heating of the house was regulated perfectly for my friends and I. Like others have said, it would be nice if there was some grass but hey, having redwoods right outside your door makes you forget about having a grassy field for the dog.
It was easy to check in after hours.
I would definitely come back again.
The Pyramid House is a timeless beauty. Very comfortable and cozy. Fireplace warms up the upstairs pretty quickly. Enjoyed the deck!
Really pretty and very close to downtown Guerneville. The Jacuzzi was amazing and right under the redwoods! The cabin was cozy .. a bit chilly at first but the fire really heated it up fast and well.
Everything was well marked and clean. We didn't use the second room below as it has a private street entrance so wasn't terribly handy but would be for a second couple or a friend :)
I will be back! LOVED it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's a magical place!
