Our LONG deck. 1200 SQ deac. You can play pool,ping-pong take a deep in the hot tub or just be by your lovely self for quiet/book time. There is more than enough space for all.
Ronit was a great & responsive host. We rented the house for a relaxing & fun bachelorette weekend on July 4th, and our whole crew loved how warm the house is, the beautifully crafted interiors that truly feel like a home, the hot tub, the guest house, and of course the deck. We cooked many meals with the fully stocked kitchen & hung out in the kitchen, and ate our meals on the deck -- just beware of mosquitoes only during sunset on warm nights, I would bring citronella candles with me next time! The guest house is a nice quiet place for someone who wants more seclusion. The bathrooms are lovely, with strong hot water for a nice shower. Our cars navigated the driveway, and others parked just a little down the road. The neighborhood of other cute little houses & wonderful trees is a nice place to walk around. We also loved the small town of Guerneville just a few minutes drive down the road, it was perfectly quaint with good foodie options, little beaches to hangout on the river, and the community feeling for the 4th of July fireworks was really nice, everybody seems to know each other. This was a perfect, comfortable, and convenient basecamp for an awesome weekend. When small issues came up at the house, Ronit was helpful & generous in resolving them. Thanks Ronit for being a thoughtful host!
Thanks so much for visiting our house in the woods.
I will look into all the detail you have suggested us and will take good care of it.
We definitely be happy to host you again and make sure that you are getting a great deal for your money.
We are in Sonoma Vally area and for the size of the house as far as I know we are in a great place in the middle.
No house in the all area has the DECK we have.
You get a great experience and lots of value for the money you spend.
As you experience it your self.
When I send the email with all the house detail I do mention to:
"Print the info since reception is bad in this area."
I do not know witch one of the provider is better, that why we also have a land line.
Hot tub is being service every week and some times twice a week.
We use Bromine and not Chlorine so the water are less harm for kids and adult skin.
The bed was Not broken the 4 first night you were there, I don't know how was sleeping on it or what kind of activity they did to have the frame give in.
But as you said it was taking care off the morning after you told me about.
Thanks again for all the info.
Have a great rest of the summer.
Ronit April V.
Redwood Serenity Deck was so lovely and charming! We enjoyed the amenities very much, especially the deck and ping pong table! We'll definitely be back for another weekend getaway. What a charming place hidden in the forest, perfect for a retreat with friends or family.
What a wonderful experience staying in this paradise away from home!. Ronit was so accommodating from the time we made the reservation until we checked out. The listing and pictures described the house exactly and made for an amazing weekend. Ronit was available via phone/text/email when needed for basic check in questions and was pleasant to work with. All of our friends had a beautiful vacation and cannot wait to return!
We had a lovely stay at the Redwood Serenity Deck - perfect for a weekend away with friends, especially when feeling under the weather, it was an easy and comfortable place to relax and take in the trees. Ronit and Harvey were immediately responsive when we called to say that the dishwasher wasn't working and offered a discount before I even had to ask. The beds were super comfy and we all had delicious much needed sleep. Thank you so much!
A magical, wonderful place. So many amenities at the home, e.g., the pool table, the hot tub, and a piano! The house is wonderfully well-equipped, and the location is great. We had a wonderful time and hope to rent this home again.
About the Host, Ronit April
My name is Ronit and I am a mom for 2 great boys and a wife to Harvey.
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 good time.

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 other 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.
