The space

This cozy, rustic bungalow in the redwoods has just been completely remodeled with all the comforts of home.

This house is perfect for a couple on a weekend, romantic getaway. The open floor plan is ideal for family a budget; there is a queen size bed as pictured and also the couch in the seating area open up to a full size bed to accommodate 2 guest, plus the chaise folds down to sleep 1 guest. You would not guess this little house has a large walk in shower with dual shower heads. The kitchen is well stocked with every thing you need for cooking in. Sit on the front porch and enjoy a bottle of wine you purchased at one of the many tasting rooms in the area. Or toast to that well deserved vacation with a special bottle of Champagne from Korbel Winery - which is just a 10 minute drive.

The neighborhood is nestled in the redwoods. Canyon 7 Road winds thru the the lush canopy and you realize you are not in The City any more. There is off street parking for one car, guest can park safely on the street.

You are just a 5 minute walk to a variety of fun destinations: Swimming/Boating on the Russian River, playing Marco Polo at the Rio Nido Pool, a round of Pee Wee Golf, dine at the Rio Nido Roadhouse .

Driving to Rio Nido is just 1 hour 40 mins, 74 mi from San Francisco.
You can also take Golden Gate Transit from San Francisco and connect in Santa Rosa on Sonoma County Transit to Rio Nido

The air is fresh and you are surrounded by redwoods at every turn.

I decided to treat myself to mini solo retreat near the Russian River and Johnny's place was perfect. The small sectional couch made for a comfortable spot to watch tv or work on my laptop. I had the best time exploring all of the cool little towns in the area. I took a stand up paddle boarding lesson on a private lake in Occidental and then enjoyed a cedar enzyme bath at Osmosis in Freestone. Dinner at the Rio Nido Roadhouse is a must. You won't regret renting this lovely cottage right in the center of everything! Thank you, Johnny, for such a great property at an affordable price!

I can't add much to the 500 plus positive reviews. We arrived at dark and were thankful for the motion lights that lit our walk to the front door. It was a great stay and perfect place.

I am originally from North Carolina (yes, i still have my 'southern' accent even after 27 years living in San Francisco.

I am fine art and commercial photographer (johnnyda(URL HIDDEN)
and I have founded and run several 3 galleries in San Francisco ((URL HIDDEN) and produced many art events to raise money for non-profits. I am also an artist coach and still maintain my connections to sell art by local artists.

I love traveling when time and finances permit. I've been to Egypt, Turkey, London, Paris, Germany, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Costa Rica, and Mexico. Hawaii of course if you live on the west coast ! I want to go to Asia or Peru next.....

I must have my coffee first thing in the morning and have been known to get coffee across the (URL HIDDEN) that I can meet a friend for coffee later. I will eat pretty much anything unless it is really hot and spicy. I love red wine, wine tastings.....and who doesnt like margaritas. However, martini's at "The Top of the Mark" is what you drink there.
