You will have the entire lower floor of my house. You have your own entrance-there is no inter-floor connection to the upper floor where I live.
The lower floor has a kitchen, living room, bathroom and a bedroom with a covered deck looking out on the redwoods and Russian River from your hammock.
Please note that the apt. is in two sections separated by the covered deck which is like a large open air living room.
The bedroom is at one end of the deck and the kitchen, bathroom and small living room are at the opposite end.
The bathroom is off of the kitchen.
The entire floor has views of redwoods and hills across the river. It is a unique space and very beautiful but is probably not the spot to stay if you are looking for a cookie-cutter hotel experience.
Wi-Fi is throughout the unit. Large flat screen TV and a CD player are in the bedroom. IPod dock in the living room.
The apt. Is only suitable for a maximum of two guests and is not suitable for children.
The hot tub deck is just steps from the bedroom and is available for your use.
There is a 3 car parking deck so you will have your own parking place. The house is one mile from River Road--the main highway from US 101 freeway to the coast.
It is very quiet and is on a private dead-end single lane dirt road that is wonderful to walk on.
Everything you would want to see in Sonoma county is close at hand. Wineries, restaurants, beaches are all 20 minutes away.
Check-in starts at 3pm. It would be best if you arrive no later then 8pm. Check-out is at noon.
Interaction with Guests
I am always happy to share any tips on restaurants or any other things in the area that you might want to know. Please don't hesitate to ask for any advice. I am usually around but like to give my guests total privacy.
Other Things to Note
Please make a copy of the detailed directions.
Please do NOT use your GPS instead of the directions. It will send you to a washout and you won't know how to find the house!
***Only Peaceful, Responsible, Clean, and Respectful people need respond.***
No smoking except outside on the decks. Sorry no pets.
I don't wear shoes inside the house. I am not making it a rule but only ask that you try it.
This is a rural area--the house is on a septic system. Do not flush any manufactured item other then toilet paper.
Please keep your recyclables separated from your trash. I can give you a separate bag for them if you like.
Again this is a rural area. Sound carries easily. Please be respectful of the neighbors and do not use the hot tub after 10 PM.
Greg was a gracious and warm host. He gave great restaurant decorations and was not intrusive at all during our stay. Great hospitality! Place was cozy and a nice retreat!
Gregory was a wonderful host. He made us feel welcome in his beautiful home tucked into the hills above the Russian River. He was easy and accommodating and made our weekend getaway memorable. I highly recommend a stay with Gregory!
This space is a relaxing dream!! We stayed for two nights and it felt as if we were sleeping in the trees. Gregory is a perfect host and the space is just how it looks in the pictures. We are looking forward to returning soon!
Gregory and the property were both fantastic! It was the perfect experience for us, secluded, comfortable and serene. The art on the property was great as well. We had such a fantastic experience.
Gregory was a fantastic host -- he greeted us upon arrival and showed us our way around the place. The retreat was quite comfortable and the views/surrounding are simply breathtaking. And talk about the quiet -- we got a great night's sleep! His outdoor kitty, Rigo, was also a joy.
Gregory was very gracious in sharing his home with us. First let me say his directions are spot on...and the home is exactly where we hoped it would be...in the trees. Gregory met us upon arrival...showed us where everything was, demonstrated the hot tub controls for us, gave us a key and from there we only saw him a few times coming in and going out.
House is as described and pictured. The patio is great...quiet and relaxing. The hot tub is outside the bedroom door and is just perfect for 2 people to relax and unwind from a great day of wine tasting in Russian River. Price is right, host is great, solitude just what the doctor ordered.
This was our first Airbnb stay. Gregory was responsive during the booking process and answered all our questions before we booked our stay. Even when there was a big accident on the main road to the house, he was able to direct us using an alternative route late at night.
He has a gorgeous, whimsical house with an impeccable view. Trust the pictures, they are extremely accurate. We loved the layout with the deck sprawling the bottom floor, which made for a lovely morning relaxation area. We also enjoyed the hot tub that was clean and very enjoyable. The full amenities were ample from cable tv to kitchen utensils!
The town of Forestville was so close to the house with delightful restaurants and stores. With wineries nestled near the house, you are in short driving and biking distance to numerous wine tasting rooms. We brought our bikes so we could bike around the area, which was very bike friendly.
Advice for the next potential customer: the roads to the house are small and windy, so drive slowly, especially at night!
Overall we truly enjoyed our stay at Gregory's house and would absolutely book again!
