We stayed at the house with 7 adults and 3 kids. The house was spacious enough to fit us all without feeling cramped. The deck is really wonderful. Although it rained for most of our trip, we made the best of it and had a great time as the house is stocked with toys for kids, the huge hot tub and ping pong/pool table for adults. And having the piano was a nice touch. The kitchen is well equipped with plenty of cooking utensils. Although the house is drafty, each room has its own heater so make sure to turn them on right when you get there and they worked nicely. The location is great as it's close to the main st of Guerneville/Safeway and close to the coast/highway 1 for sight seeing.

Our family of four, 2 parents and two adult kids, enjoyed being together in this house in the woods. Unfortunately it was cold when we were here, so we couldn't use the truly lovely and well-appointed deck pictured. The house is as described - rustic with modern conveniences. Here are our pros and cons: Cons: -house heater wasn't working and it was cold when we arrived. We didn't feel comfortable using the space heaters the first night. Thankfully, the weather got warmer after our first night and we tried the heaters out in the daytime (after our night time arrival) and used them when needed subsequent nights. NOT A PROBLEM IN THE SUMMER/WARMER WEATHER. -Steep driveway - really steep. -Glass door on kid's room. Our 21 year old son slept in there and would have preferred privacy. If you are traveling with adults, you need to be away of this. Pros: 1. Lovely and well-appointed deck. (for warm weather use). 2. Big kitchen with good appliances. Easy to prepare meals. 3. Large kitchen table for enjoyable gathering. 4. Spacious - we all had our own space and didn't feel crowded when in the common rooms. 5. Easy check in with clear instructions from hosts and a lock box on the premises. 6. Good wifi - important to our family.

Response from Harvey:
Hi Alison, Thank you for the review, both pros and cons. Just to answer some of the cons, the driveway is steep, but nothing in comparison to many of the other houses in the hills above the river, but I will get to taking a foto of the drive that reflects the angle. For some drivers, it might be a challenge. Glad you managed with it. We do get about one comment a year about it. In regard to the heat, the raccoons ate the ducts that are under the house so that the central forced air does not work, but in the interim, we found that the other heaters do the job to keep the place warm. But I will get the guy that is the local manager to come over when it is cold and turn the heat on in advance. There is no problem with any of those heaters to stay on the night. Your comment about the glass doors is interesting and I will put a shade on the door for more privacy. Almost all the guest in the past have come with children and they appreciate that the door is glass panes. But good point, I never thought of that. Other than that I am glad you got to enjoy yourselves. You should be there in the summer when it's hot. Paradise. All the best, Harvey Varga

Beautiful deck! It's the star of this property. The rooms are somewhat oddly sized, with a huge master and two small rooms that many beds are crammed into. Great kitchen, very well stocked. The hot tub wasn't very well maintained, but they tried their best to communicate with us about it.

Response from Harvey:
Thank you, Christina. Sorry that you felt " cramped " in this 1200FT house. As we had talked before the hot tub echoes was an unfortunate one. I was happy to reimburse you some of the money back and offer you a one night free next time you come. All and all your experience was very positive and we are happy for that. Wishing all the best and hope to serve in the future. Kindly. Harvey.

Ronit & Harvey were great hosts, and their home is amazing. The deck is huge and has all of the games that I love to see in an AirBnb - ping pong, pool table, hot tub, BBQ. The house is surrounded by redwoods but still gets plenty of natural light. The interior is modern and comfortable. Would definitely stay here again!

Hello,
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.

Enjoy.
