We loved the location and had many wonderful dinners and great conversation. The deck, being the focal point of the house, was pretty gross and required extra cleaning. It was an unseasonably hot weekend and not all of the fans worked and there isn't AC so we spent the majority of the time outside. There are some exposed wires and there are renovation projects that still needs to be finished. We definitely still enjoyed our stay immensely.

Response from Harvey:
Dear Nicole. 1. Redwood tables don't mold, they have too much tannin which is a mold block; they get black in response to drinks and food 2. One of the benefits of being surrounded by trees is that they are full of birds. I have tried to talk to the birds about pooping on the deck but to no avail. You would think that with a 1400 sq ft deck they would spread it out evenly. They have told me that when the cleaner comes on Monday or Tuesday they can't wait until Sunday to let it loose. 3. Inside the house is within my control. Almost passed muster too. Two of the three fans are easy to figure out how to turn on and they work just fine. The third has a 3-way switch so it can get confusing but also works just fine. Nobody up there has AC except the hospital. 4. Yes, there are some renovations that need to be finished( and some exposed wires that are not hot), but renovations in that climate are continuous. 5. Thank you for adding that you "enjoyed your stay immensely; loved the location and had many wonderful dinners and great conversation." Hard to imagine how you could do that while you were being "so grossed out." I will add more precise info on how to turn on the fans though. Thank you.

We loved our stay at this house in the redwoods. It has a great family-friendly set-up all on one level with an enormous outdoor porch (all enclosed) for hanging out. We stayed here with our four young kids, the kids-room was awesome for them complete with many toys to entertain. Our au pair stayed in the room with the attached bath which was nice for her to have some privacy. Kitchen had everything we needed. It is a short drive to Jenner where the view is just breathtaking!

The Deck was everything! This place is for anyone who dreams of their own little cabin in the woods and does not have one. The kitchen is stocked well enough supplies to cook just about anything. Overall very happy with the atmosphere and comfiness of the home. Thanks, Harvey!

We had a pleasant time and I think Harvey is working on improvement's to the property. The deck is the focal point.

"Redwood Serenity Deck" sums it up perfectly. The deck is as huge as portrayed and is like being in a treehouse in the Redwoods complete with hot tub. The house is lovely with an open, modern sensibility and the bedrooms and beds were great. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking. It was just what we needed and we hope to return!

I am Harvey Varga
The house that you see is a work of love and care for all of my family member (5 years and 10 years).
We worked on it for a long time and enjoyed every min of it.
We love being there rain or shine. The summer on the deck is a fun relaxing time.
The winter inside when the fire place is burning as its own filling to it.
We love to host and have a friend gathering for food wine and a good time.
When you chose this house for your vacation we know what the place hold in it.
I would like to make sure you feel at "home", so please ask any question you need,let me know if you have any thing spacial you need to know or want.
As a family, we love traveling in the united state or any other places in the world.
We enjoy using another airbnb host when we go away.
when I come to the house I love to seat in the sun and look at the tall trees.
In the winter my favorite thing to do is to seat by the fire place,and at night to sleep when the fire is still going on.
we welcome you to visit and relax.
