The space

This large, 3 bedroom, 1.5 bath house in the redwoods has just been completely remodeled with all the comforts of home.

An open plan for Living Room and Kitchen is great for entertaining with guess while cooking. The large bathroom has a walk in shower with dual shower heads - and, a tub for soaking! The kitchen is well stocked with every thing you need for cooking a large meal or simple breakfast.

Sit on the sunny roof deck which is furnished with a gas grill, table and chairs for a BBQ or enjoy a bottle of wine you purchased at one of the many tasting rooms in the are sipping on a nice 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 parking for one car in the front driveway, and one in the driveway in the rear of the house.

You are just a 5 minute walk to a variety of fun destinations: Swimming/Boating in the Russian River, playing Marco Polo in 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.

This house is in Rio Nido, I would not go back there. It is right off the main road and right next to the "Road House" that has bands and noise. The house is not as spacious as the pictures, the decor is dated. The house is well stocked and the deck is a big plus! Be careful, there are problematic neighbors and they were not friendly, there was a domestic disturbance and an altercation out on the street which ended in an arrest.

The house was lovely, well stocked, and in a great location. It was close to town and the river is a five minute walk away! Great for groups.

This house is perfect for family or a small gathering getaway. The house has almost all the amenities one would need for a great stay. The rooms and bathroom are a great size and the open concept is great for interacting with family or friends. The owner and housekeeper are very friendly and helpful. The location is perfect for wine tasting, going to the river, Armstrong National Park, downtown Guerneville, and for relaxing. I would definitely recommend this house.

House was perfect for a short 2 nt stay. 20 min. from wineries and Healdsburg. Johnny is a great host - communication is great. Only con for us was that there is no AC at this house, only ceiling fans. The weekend [June 17] we were there was one of the hottest they've had. We made the best of it opened up windows and doors etc. it cools down after the sun goes down. The back porch deck was nice at night BONUS: if you're lucky enough to be there when Levi Lloyd & 501 Band and Weekend at Bernie's are playing at the Rio Nido Roadhouse make it a point to eat in (Pizza from downtown Guerneville) sit on back deck and enjoy the music!! An unexpected highlight to our weekend!

Response from Johnny:
Thank you for your feedback. Yes it's been unusually hot and it would be great I'm sure to have AC for the summer months However as it says all the listings under the section amenities – you can see that AC is not available in this unit

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
and I have founded and run several 3 galleries in San Francisco ( 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 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.
