The home was beautiful, and the description was very accurate. I liked how big the backyard was, and had the kitchen was clearly labeled. The home provided us with a lot of blanket and pillow options which was much appreciated! I would definitely recommend this house to my friends and family!!
The house was an incredible space for spending the weekend! It easily accommodated 12 adults and provided everything we needed for making meals and relaxing. It's a great place!
The house was perfect for our large group. Plenty of sleeping space and peaceful nooks to get away from the group. My only gripe would be the overall cleanliness of the property. The linens were clean etc but the house stunk from the fireplace and the outside needed some upkeep. Overall it was not a bad place to stay in Guerneville.
Good communication from the host. House had everything we needed. Some of the upstairs rooms were smaller, but 7 people fit comfortably. Grounds were lovely. Conveniently located to the center of Guerneville.
