About this listing

My sunny '70s 2 bedroom cabin with exposed redwood cathedral beam ceilings has amazing canyon views. There's a hot tub and a small one bedroom outbuilding that's its own little getaway. It's in a very special neighborhood with really nice people.

The space

Vacation Rental Permit # ZPE16-000, Transient Occupancy Certificate #2650N. My house was part of a special group of homes designed and built by a gay couple in the late '70s. Their thought and detail is seen everywhere in the house. It's not a big home, but it's designed to maximize space. Exposed redwood cathedral ceilings are in the living room and there are 2 bedrooms. A very large lower deck contains a hot tub, outdoor shower and a small cabin that has a bed. Truly a special getaway the owner has decided to let others enjoy.

Guest access

Guests will have access to hot tub and outdoor shower. Outdoor shower and running outside water may be off in the winter due to freezing pipes.

Interaction with guests

I won't be around during the stay, but am available at all times. I can have as much interaction as necessary including the actual stay. I prefer to answer questions and help as much as I can.

Other things to note

It's a one mile walk to the river- head out on the 116 for a short walk to Odd Fellows Road and hang a right. There's a cool bridge and beach area. Continue across the bridge in the summer and you'll get to Korbel. At the house AT&T has the best mobile reception. There is a landline there if needed.

This is not a house for large parties. There is only one bathroom. If it's discovered there are more than the permitted amount of guests during a stay airbnb will be notified. Extra guests beyond the limit of four need to be negotiated with owner. Small dogs are negotiable but I need to discuss this in advance. No cats please. No smoking in the house. I'd prefer to not have smoking on the decks due to possible burns and risk of fire. I expect guests to not be loud at night outside past 9pm to respect the neighbors. Official quiet time is between 10pm and 7am per Sonoma County restrictions. To be considerate of the neighbors please do not have any large parties during the day or night. My place is a relaxing retreat and is best used that way!
Most of the homes in the area like this one use septic systems. Please don't flush any objects beyond normal bathroom usage and toilet paper- it's a very sensitive ecosystem.

This house was awesome! I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing weekend in Guerneville. The deck(s) and hot tub were great to unwind and take in the redwoods. Bob was very communicative with clear instructions on finding the house and how to use everything.

Bob's house is truly amazing and perhaps the most unique Airbnb I have experienced yet. Bob was really easy to work with and I lucked out by being able to make a last second reservation for the same day. The house is really well designed and the views are incredible. I enjoyed sleeping in the small room by the hot tub as it was like living in a tree house, with all the amenities needed in the house above. All the reviews before do a terrific job explaining why this is a terrific property and Bob is a great host. I hope to return again one day.

We had such a lovely stay at Bob's place. The house is beautiful, as is the area immediately surrounding it. Those trees! Bob's communication with us was great, and he told us everything we needed to know to have a great trip. We would happily return again.

Bob's home is a gem. A secluded, artistic retreat amongst the trees. The perfect place for reflection and relaxation. Bob's communications and house directions were clear and friendly. A great host.

Stupendous hospitality in a stunning, funky setting. Celebrated my 40th birthday with a group of girlfriends at Bob's glorious 1970s retreat. We loved the architecture, the decor and design throughout. Lounging on the decks and in the hot tub was just what we needed. Additional tiny cottage was adored by all, and had a lovely, fresh cedar scent. Landscape lighting on giant redwoods at night was magical. Bob was the most generous, responsive, and thoughtful airbnb host I've had yet. Truly exceeding expectations. A short 5-minute drive to bars, restaurants, river, and hiking.

Bob's house is amazing! He's my neighbor and let me rent it to house guests for my wedding. I've never really been inside before but always checked out the beautiful modern design when walking my dogs. Bob was immediate on getting information to me and making sure I had everything in place before my big day. We live in an incredible neighborhood and Bob is an example of one of our many awesome people in our community. I would definitely recommend this home to anyone who wants to enjoy the Russian river in comfortable modern artistic style.

I'm a creative director and appreciate all of what Northern California has to offer. I've looked to find special architecturally interesting and significant homes as I love the period of architecture in the area from the mid to late '60s, as well as 1970s. My properties are thoughtfully decorated to the period they were designed, yet updated appropriately.

I've been collecting special mid-century furniture, objects and artwork. I'm also into vintage muscle cars. I'm on the board of an organization to document and help preserve buildings of the modern movement. I'm not a big TV watcher, but never tire of the classic TV sitcoms of the past. I don't do reality TV as I'd rather use the time reading about architecture or design! Or going outside.

I love traveling to Europe occasionally, as well as I'll always love Hawaii. I've been to all the islands but Kauai.

My place in Guerneville affords access to great local food, as well as some awesome wineries. I feel fortunate to be so close to such amazing places!

In my job and in my life, I'm very detail and goal-oriented. I hope you see that detail and care in both of my homes and enjoy your stay!
