Interaction with Guests
Call me if you need anything before or during your stay!
I will send you a Things to Do in the area doc when you book. I also live near-by and can guide you to the best places to eat, hike, beach, lounge, shop, wine taste etc.
AZ is located at the top of the Redwoods 1 mile from town but feels a million miles away!
Car is the best. There are steep hills between you and the town and river. We can have bikes delivered to your door....or you can walk...
Other Things to Note
There is everything within a few minutes..fine dining, casual dining, unique shops, Armstrong Woods, Wineries, a Golf course, tennis courts...the Russian River is a 5 min drive, the ocean a 15 min drive!
If you choose to book I will send you our paperwork with Directions, check out procedures (basically if you make a mess clean it up), and key info.
Beautiful place with a nice hot tub, grill and kitchen. The house rules are a bit much (everything is a fine) and added a sense of paranoia to the stay. Not as secluded as we thought as there are plenty of neighbors nearby. Overall we enjoyed it.
Well..I have to speak to the lowest common (email hidden)ople who have rented to throw some epic party to those who have NEVER rented a house before. All it takes to turn the language I use currently is 1 night and with 7,000 of damages...it changes ones perspective as a homeowner!
Thanks and glad you had a good stay.
The home is very comfortable with a marvelous enormous bedroom and terrific sauna, hot tub, and hammock in the yard. Very peaceful and welcoming. Stace was very thorough in handling paperwork and expectations and available for guidance with regards to area attractions and activities. Guerneville is a lovely destination with much to offer.
Absolute Zen was an Absolutely amazing getaway for me and my boyfriends anniversary. I highly recommend this home for a couples relaxing retreat. Just a few of the highlights were soaking in the hot tub, falling asleep in the hammock, letting my mind go in the Zen room, cooking dinner on the outdoor grill, and laying in bed while looking at nature through the windows. I only wish I could have stayed longer. Being from San Francisco we are used to walking, so its only a 20 minute walk downtown to the local stores, restaurants, bars, and beach, and we did all of those things during the weekend! I definitely hope to come back soon...next time we'll bring our dog and some bug spray. :)
What a wonderful piece of property. Fair warning that it's not the easiest home to find in the evening (it's exactly as billed, peaceful and remote/dark) and with as steep as the hills are, you likely wont be doing much walking/biking around the house, but otherwise it lives up to it's "Zen" name.
Nestled in a lush forested area, you'll find this quaint home. I was there to escape the everyday hustle of the City, and my girlfriend wanted a peaceful place to relax for a couple of days after a tough semester of school. "Absolute Zen" did the trick. For my money, you can't beat soaking in a hot tub under the stars at night and sitting by a fireplace drinking some of the world's best wine. That's my definition of "at peace".
The bedroom is enormous and very comfortable, so expect to spend the majority of your time hanging out in there when you're "home".
Unfortunately for us it rained the entire time, so that was prohibitive of us enjoying any outdoor activities that the river had to offer, but it did force us to slow down, relax, and just enjoy the moment.
It was also my first trip to Guerneville, which was a pleasant surprise. The restaurants we tried were fantastic and the people of the town were all quite nice.
• Large, comfy hot tub
• Very comfy, king sized bed
• Two fireplaces that are great for ambiance (and warmth if needed)
• Lush forest surroundings
• Tons of cable channels to choose from, including premium channels
• The wifi worked flawlessly (I was connected most of the day working)
• Close proximity to some amazing wineries and restaurants
• Lots of house rules (which is fine, just don't expect hotel style treatment)
• Can't predict the weather
Stace was very friendly and made herself available if we needed her, but the getaway went well and we were in and out without needing to bother her. I would certainly recommend "Absolute Zen" to a couple hoping to get some quiet time together and looking for a slightly different experience.
I am so happy you loved Absolute Zen. It is a wonderful house and you guys were perfect guests. Look forward to your next visit.
thanks so much,
PS sorry for the house rules. we have guests on varying ages and renting experience...this helps us level out the playing field.
