The check in/key pick up process was super easy, and the house was great. We loved the side patio, grill, and hot tub.
Lovey escape in the Russian River. The house was very comfortable for four adults and two dogs and stocked with everything we needed. In addition it was very close to town and lots of fantastic wineries, hiking, and the ocean. Great stay and would love to go back.
My parents and I had a an amazing weekend here! We all loved the hot tub and the spacious and well heated/insulated cabin. Location is so beautiful!
Comfortable home on the quieter side of Guernville area in Monte Rio. Would love to come back in the future!
This was a nice place, but not a great value for the money, in my opinion. The master bedroom was very nice, but the second bedroom was quite small. There was no room left at all if the trundle bed was pulled out. The kitchen worked great and was well provisioned and the neighborhood was friendly and close to Guerneville for anything you needed.
Came to Up and Away for a weekend in early April with a group of girl friends. We were close to some nice wineries and hiking areas. It's a lovely home in a very quiet neighborhood. We most enjoyed the well-equipped kitchen and the bbq, since there were several "foodies" in our group.
AT&T users had no service at the house (Verizon was fine), but the wifi allowed us to be connected when we needed to be.
Overall it made for a very relaxing getaway; would love to find time for a longer stay!
My friends and I had a lovely, relaxing weekend at this vacation home. Checking in and out after hours was hassle free! The location was in a quiet neighborhood and everything in the house was clean and new. There was plenty of space for 3 couples and 3 dogs. The floor plan is open, making it easy to socialize and cook at the same time, and there's even a balcony located right off the main living room for extra chilling space. The back yard is fully fenced and perfect for letting dogs play and run. All the amenities listed were functioning properly and the host had a detailed guide available for quick reference on operating appliances, electronics, and the spa. Very helpful! The beach is a close walk from the house and peaceful. Overall, we enjoyed Up and Away and would definitely return in the future.
