  • Thank you for sharing your home. We enjoyed every minute of it. Will plan on a return trip!

  • Casa Sophia is an oasis. Very private, all the comforts of home. Clean, comfortable, really a terrific place to stay among the Redwoods with or without kids and dog!

  • Skeeter and Alex were fabulous, as always. Our stay, however brief, was delightful. Soaking in the hot tub under the redwoods is one of our favorite activities. Casa Sophia is very relaxing and well set-up to enjoy everything there is to enjoy at the Russian River.

  • This place is special! Spacious, comfortable rooms, an expansive porch to soak in the peaceful, beautiful views, a fun play set and games for the kids, and an OK to bring our dog... I couldn't have asked for anything better. Skeeter was very friendly and flexible with our needs, she responded almost immediately to all of my messages, and we were even greeted with a card of welcome and a bottle of wine. Great experience all around!

    Response from Skeeter:

    Thanks so much for the info on the ants. We treated for them right before we left, but will do so again. I appreciate the feedback. Skeeter

  • We really enjoyed staying at Casa Sophia. The house was set up perfectly for guests, with everything you could need. The kids loved the play house and swings.

    June 2014
  • Skeeter was very professional in handling our scheduling mixup. Looking forward to staying at his wonderful place.

  • We LOVED this home. The pictures do not do it justice (may want to take more Skeeter :))

    Everything was perfect, great location, quiet and beautiful. We played cards by the fireplace all night, jumped in the hot-tub and slept comfortably. We only spent a day and a half in the area, but while out wine tasting we actually were EXCITED to get "home" and enjoy the house more before we had to go!

    Thanks Skeeter for topping off a great "Airbnb" trip!

    John, Chris, Amy and Alice :)

  • We had a group of 6 women that needed a relaxing and fun weekend away, Casa Sophia was PERFECT! We loved the house among the trees, sitting on the back porch or in the hot tub looking up at the blue sky or stars through the Redwoods was amazing. The inside of the house was very comfortable and very clean. I loved the open kitchen, gas range and the large dining room table. Also that the kitchen was stocked with decent pots, pans, knives, serving utensils, bowls, etc. The last place I stayed in the kitchen was gross (not an AirBnB rental) so this was definitely something on my radar and I was very pleased. A couple days before the trip Skeeter reached out to me to see if there was anything I needed before our arrival, a simple but nice gesture that made me feel very welcome. Thank you so much for letting us use your home! Thank you!

  • This places was an amazing retreat for our group! Perfect for kids, wine tasting and hot tubbing under the stars, we would love to stay again for longer!

  • Casa Sophia is the PERFECT home for a quiet getaway. The house is spacious and has a big back yard with a play structure for kids, a big back porch with a chiminea and grill, and a hot tub. The neighborhood is quiet and the houses aren't built on top of another, as they tend to be in Guerneville. The drive to the center of Guerneville is only about seven minutes, so you have access to all Guerneville has to offer.

    I would highly recommend this home!
