Eli's place was very different to your standard holiday let. It was brilliant for us and we really loved his remote shabby chic getaway home. The published description and pictures are an accurate account of the property etc. If you are open minded and are adventurous and looking for a back of beyond retreat to escape to then you will probably love it too. We found the whole dwelling unique and therefore fascinating. It was also comfortable and clean. Thank you Eli for sharing your wonderful unique holiday home with us.
We enjoyed our stay among the redwoods. Eli's place isn't fancy--and sadly his record player wasn't working--but it's comfy with great views from the main bedroom, deck and dining area. We didn't realize how close his neighbors are to his cabin but it was fine once we drove through the gates--inside we found the peace & quiet we were looking for.
Eli was super responsive - each time I reached out during my stay he would respond within 10 minutes. early morning and late night.
His description is very accurate - its rustic, and charming.
Its a beautiful place with views of the forest all around. The proximity to river is very nice too. Although I would say, some of the inflatables do have leaks, and it took us a while to inflate them using the provided electric inflater (very handy), so going to Burke's down the street for rentals may be a better option.
Eli's recommendation to check out Goat Rock at sunset was spectacular, best part of the California Coast I've seen - just a 30 min drive from the house.
Overall I would recommend! its very chill.
This house is so great. The patios are quiet and peaceful with nice views of the forest. The cabin itself is simple without being sparse and chic without being showy. Great if you're looking to get-away with a couple of friends or if you're looking for a quiet retreat to get some writing done.
Lovely spot in Cazadero, our favorite Russian River locale. Interesting and fun decor with gorgeous views and a great deck for stargazing. If you are open to a TV and internet-free weekend, this is the perfect place.
We really enjoyed our time in this home. It's very eclectic. There is interesting memorabilia throughout the home, an old record player and an assortment of great records. The place has a really cool design. There is a great loft that would be ideal for kids, a bedroom with an amazing view, and a living room that is totally charming. That said, if you're looking for something that is modern, formal, and elegant this may not be the perfect place for you. But, if you're looking for something that is highly unique, has a ton of character, and is a place that you will think fondly of for years to come, I would give this place a second look. I don't think you will be disappointed. I would definitely stay there again.
Absolutely stunning location and an adorable cabin. Came up here for a break from technology/civilization and it was exactly what we hoped for.
We had a wonderful four days here. Even though the cabin is surrounded by other houses, its location is private and quiet. Memories include lovely relaxed mornings on the deck enjoying a fabulous view of the redwoods, delighting in California quails skittering across the hillside below us, and watching humming birds. The house was very comfortable for two people and well equipped.
Eli was great from the moment I booked; he gave easy to follow directions and made check in simple. The cabin is better than the photos- it's cozy, well appointed and the porch is THE BEST! Great place to read, walk in the woods, get some peace and quiet. When we checked out and forgot a bag, he was responsive and I got it back a few days later.
Beautiful little getaway with endless trees. I'll definitely be back!
Eli was great. Easy going, good guy, fun to talk to, undemanding. Interesting life and career. Completely trustworthy.
Eli is the best. Trustworthy and responsible. Good at ping pong. A steadfast supporter of fish stews. You should rent his place and also be his friend if that's an option on here somewhere.
Not only is Eli all-around pretty great, but he is apparently a masterful decorator, home fixer-upper, and handy-guy. If you're staying at his cabin, I have no doubt you'll be delighted. He's put an immense amount of care into making the space a unique and beautiful retreat. Given that Eli is such a lovely host, I'm positive he'd make a wonderful guest, as well!
I would stay at Eli's house! In fact, I have stayed there many times before. It's a lovely, quiet, secluded retreat. Expect to see lots of trees out of the windows. As for Eli himself, I believe he would make a quiet and respectful house guest, if his non-house-guest persona is anything to go by (it is.) Please consider this man and his home vouched for.
Eli is one of my favorite men. I've known him for nine years. The home he's listing for rental here on airbnb makes an ideal hideaway. I helped him fix it up a little bit (just a little bit) after he bought it. The idea of going back to that house lifts my spirits.
Not only is Eli a fellow of excellent character and vim whom I have known for several calendar years, I also happen to have visited this very cabin in the woods, emerging with all my major limbs and organs intact. If you're looking to get out of San Francisco for a while, it's hard to imagine a sweeter spot. I VOUCH FOR THIS MAN.
You would be hard-pressed to find a kinder and friendlier fellow than Eli. He's also smart, charming, and an excellent host. His Forestville getaway is an awesome place that he's transformed into a lovely writer's retreat with his own blood, sweat and tears -- a perfect destination for those wanting a respite from a hectic city life.
Eli is a gracious man with a decent mid-range jumper. He's at his best when hosting people at his cabin and discussing carpentry. He might be at his worst when he's alone, but how would I know? Eli is also a man of very few needs. As a houseguest, I imagine he's ideal!
