Rick was a thorough and generous host. His home is absolutely beautiful, and the pool house is just as cozy as it looks. We would definitely return!
Rick's pool house was adorable. We loved being in the midst of the forest and enjoyed using the jacuzzi. It wasn't quite as secluded as we expected (we could see neighbors' homes and the main house) but it still felt private and quiet. Rick was quick to respond to questions/concerns and eager to make it a pleasant stay. Easy driving access to many cute small towns and tons of vineyards. We would visit again.
Amazing honestly. Very relaxing and beautiful. The photos really don't do it justice. A great value too. We can't wait to go back!
The Monte Rio Pool House was the perfect place for us this past weekend! We were attending a wedding in Monte Rio, and were able to walk the short beautiful mile down the hill and across the river to the site. The house is exactly as pictured in the site. We arrived while Rick was at work, but he had left as sign out for us indicating which house was his, and had great small amenities ready to go (coffee, sugar, popcorn, toothpaste, shampoo, etc.). We sat in the hot tub, and lounged on the back porch. He also had the grill and the bonfire ready to go, but we were unable to use them as we were so busy with the wedding. We definitely would go back if we're ever in the area again!
Rick was so thoughtful in welcoming us to the pool house. He made sure to contact me a few days before our stay to be sure that we had directions and to prepare us for our stay. I'm glad he did because his directions were much more helpful than the directions from our navigation system. The pool house was clean and cozy - a perfect place for a couple's getaway. Rick made sure to have coffee supplies and he even left some popcorn for a movie night. We were in town for a wedding, so unfortunately we didn't get to spend as much time at the pool house as we would have hoped for. There is a hot tub and a fire pit that we didn't get to take advantage of. But we did enjoy unplugging for the weekend (little to no cell reception). If I ever needed accommodations in Monte Rio again, I would definitely look to stay here.
Great place! Great host!
This delightful redwood cottage was WONDERFUL! Rick was a thoughtful, caring, and helpful host. The cottage is beautifully and thoughtfully appointed with everything you need, and the hot tub under the redwoods is TO DIE FOR!
Rick was the best host! Great communication before, during, and after our stay. I am from the area and know how hard it is to find good places that doesn't cost a fortune. My boyfriend was doing the Vineman, so we really appreciated the proximity to the event, the relaxing setting, and the awesome spa right on our deck. Like another review noted, the pictures don't do the place justice, it is an oasis: gas grill, heat lamp for chilly nights, fire pit, spa, beautiful redwoods, great parking, quiet, wi-fi, etc...it was just great to have all we needed and more while in the middle of the forest. Thanks Rick!
This was my first airbnb experience and I couldn't be happier. From the first contact two months ago to check-out yesterday, Rick was responsive, attentive when needed, discreet when not and really just a pleasure to deal with. He is a truly generous-hearted person.
The Pool House (otherwise known as Kathy's House ;) is absolutely delightful, far beyond my expectations. The entire property is perfectly beautiful. I was able to spend some days there by myself and several days with my husband at the end. As a single's retreat it was quiet, private and utterly relaxing. As a romantic getaway it was just that - romantic, romantic, romantic!
The whole Russian River Valley is breathtaking and The Pool House is a wonderful base from which to explore it.
If you are even thinking of booking this space, stop thinking and do it. You will be so glad you did.
Rick, you've set the bar mighty high, my friend! Universal blessings.
A lovely peaceful and calm week spent at the Pool House. Quiet evenings nestled in the deck under the redwoods or soaking in the hot tub. The house is well-equipped and Rick was an easy going, charming host. This is a comfortable and private retreat.
