It was clean and perfect when we arrived. We loved the week we spent there and did not want to leave. It felt like we were just far enough away from neighbors to feel private and conducive to our family retreat. Be prepared for a one lane paved road up the hills to the house. Totally doable, just helpful to know its coming if you are not used to roads like that. The management staff were attentive the one time we called.
My girlfriend and I really enjoyed our stay at Ananda. I would recommend this house and host. The house is very comfortable and clean. The host were responsive when when we had a question after hours, and got back to us right away!
The house is a renovated cabin typical of the Monte Rio area. It's the right balance of update, and still has that cabin feel with a stone fireplace and a few wood walls. The best feature is the large outdoor deck. We spent a lot of time on the deck reading and relaxing outside because the deck was so great. We also enjoyed waking up looking out the sliding glass doors and seeing the redwoods that surrounded the house. The kitchen is very well equipped, better than most AirBnB's that we've stayed at.
The kitchen has been slightly expanded and the outside a new color since the pictures have been taken. This expansion made space for a nice dining area, and expanded the kitchen counter space.
This is a great place and I would recommend.
This place is very special, nothing short of magical! The house is cozy, modern, and the location is perfect! There are other homes around you, but you feel secluded in your own retreat. I will be back for another personal retreat at Ananda!
It was perfect. Cozy, clean, convenient to town but secluded. The perfect getaway.
We loved the two days we stayed at Ananda! It felt like we were in the trees and it was so quiet! Everyone could just relax, and enjoy the house with its beautiful surrounding.
Only negatives I have is that the cleaning people left two loads of laundry in the washer and dryer with a note saying they ran out of time with the insinuation that we would finish. I wasn't going to do laundry on my vacation lol. The other is that check in time is so late at 5, and check out is at 11. It felt like there was some lost time that could've been spent at the house relaxing.
I would stay at Ananda again, and would recommend this place to everyone.
Thanks for leaving a review! I apologize about the laundry left in the machines. The housecleaner wasn't authorized to do that. I'm sorry that you didn't call to alert us. We would have been happy to send someone by to take care of it immediately. I'm glad you enjoyed this lovely home though, and we hope to see you back soon!
Our stay at Ananda was great! The place is much like a treehouse, set among the redwoods with views of foliage from ever window and in every direction, including the two large skylights over the living room. The layout is efficient yet spacious with ultra comfy beds, a well equipped kitchen and lots of space for lounging about...which is just what one wants with a retreat in the woods. Plus the hot tub is actually HOT....unlike many other rentals which have a maximum temperature somewhere on in 90's. This tub gets into the 100's...nice and hot! Throw in a big fireplace and this place delivers on all levels.
