Great experience overall. The house was just as described and was an amazing property. It's right by a great beach on the river, and it was an easy walk into town. Would definitely stay again.
Above and BEYOND was very peaceful and well maintained.we had an enjoyable and memorable weekend get away.
The house was lovely and perfectly situated for our friends weekend. It's cozy and comfortable with all of the amenities we needed and wanted. If I'm ever back in the Russian River area again, I will certainly look to stay here again.
Was great. Nice and quaint. 4 people was perfect amount for the space. Has excellent beach access and decks are great.
Above and Beyond is a great house to rent! I hope to rent it again one day and highly recommend it. Everyone in our group had a great time. Overall the house is very comfortable, clean, and recently remodeled.
A few tips: The kitchen is especially well equipped, the only thing it didn't have is a salad spinner. Plan on bringing your own hot tub towels since the towels in the house are just for showers. We did find that the pull-out couch was slightly broken and pretty uncomfortable, which we told the rental company about. The other beds were very comfortable. There are two large decks outside with plenty of seating. There is a nice fireplace and there was plenty of wood in the wood pile for us. Also, the hot tub is great!
