The Space

Real Neato is located just a mile and a half from Guerneville where great shopping and good restaurants abound. Canoes and kayaks can be rented there or at Burke's, about 8 miles east on River Road. Korbel Winery is only 5 minutes away and we are just 10 minutes from Westside Drive where several top-notch wineries can be visited. Armstrong Redwood Park which has miles of great hiking is also only minutes away. If you prefer the ocean, the Pacific Ocean (Jenner, Goat Rock, etc.) are only 25 minutes to the west.

The huge "great room' is sunny and cheerful with large double-paned windows throughout. Beautiful hardwood floors and oriental carpets give it a warm, cheerful aspect. The dining room table will seat 10 when fully extended. All kitchen and washing appliances are sparkling new. There is a deck extending 3/4 around the house leading to a hot tub which overlooks the river. The large front deck perched above the river is anchored by two redwood trees. In the summer you will be delighted watching a parade of canoes, kayaks and frolicking swimmers. In the morning and early evening the ducklings and many water birds venture out.

Because we are on a bend in the river, there are delightful river views from every room in the house (except one back bathroom). The master bedroom which stretches across the front of the house has views both up and down the river.

River access is available by stairs on both sides of the house and on the left is a new swimming dock with a ladder for easy egress/ingress.

My husband and I are in our 70s. We don't travel much anymore except to family weddings, etc. We like to go to the river house about once a month. We entertain at the house and eat out several times a week in Guernevile. In summer it is delightful to swim off our dock. We even had people swimming in early June last year. We love to read. Even in winter it is often warm enough out on the deck to read in the sunshine. That way we can get some vitamin D, catch up on our reading and watch the river activities. On cold days, it is cozy to read in front of the fireplace. We often take the dogs (2) for walks on the beach at Monte Rio , in the local cemetary and in Armstrong Redwood Park. Korbel Winery which you pass on River Road has a very nice tour which we take visitors to see. Prior to purchasing Real Neato in 2006 we would rent a house at the river for a week every summer. Other trips we took were to Alaska, Peru. Kenya and Nepal. We had always wanted a home with water view, so when this house came up for sale we "seized" it and did major remodeling to suite our taste for open space living. So I guess our motto would be carpe diem (seize the day)!.
