We had a great mini family vacation thanks to Johnny sharing his lovely home. Everything was as perfect as the pictures online. We will be visiting again soon and hope Johnny will have us again.
Johnny was very responsive to all of our questions and even checked in to see if we were enjoying our stay. The house is as described. Great for kids too!
Home was nice and neighborhood was perfect for the dog due to the nearby dogpark.
Johnny's house truly was a Russian River paradise. It was spacious, clean and the perfect place to stay over the weekend. It was right near the Russian River, Guerneville and all the other great happenings the area has to offer. We feel lucky to have been able to stay there.
Johnny was very responsive during the booking process and everything went smoothly with our stay. The house is fantastic for groups, with a large living room/kitchen area for group cooking and talking. The grill and outdoor deck are lovely. It was a little rainy during our stay, otherwise we would have made much more use of the deck area. The area is very nice -- some good walking paths through the redwoods.
Received great set of detailed instructions upon booking. Great location with fun bar/restaurant with band close by, access to nearby cute town, and wonderful drives to beautiful wineries. House was well appointed and comfortable throughout.
Johnny's property was exactly what we were anticipating - clean, well located, very well appointed and ready for us a few hours early. Johnny responded to all my questions quite quickly, and was willing to reconfirm a few details. The housekeeper was also nearby, and checked-in with us after losing power to be sure everything in the house was ok. The local bottles of wine at the house for purchase were very convenient! And the five us felt that the house was spacious and cozy at the same time.

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 ((website hidden)),
and I have founded and run several 3 galleries in San Francisco ((website 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 street....so 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.
