Crista's place is very comfortable & lovely. The pictures don't do justice. We enjoyed the sun and the view from the main room, perfectly equipped kitchen and stylish decor.
Crista gave us great hiking recommendations and was very responsive to our questions. The internet was slow and spotty at times. Overall we had a great experience and we hope to return.
Comfortable, modern design that really maximizes a relatively small space. Beautiful deck with a woodburning stove, great spots for reading, relaxing and a small kitchen that was big enough to cook Thanksgiving dinner. Great spot in Guerneville.
Crista's place is like a hidden treasure in the woods! The interior space is really comfy and beautifully decorated. There are lots of little details that make you aware of how thoughtfully everything was put together. The apartment faces south so it gets wonderful sun all day long. I appreciated how open and bright it felt. Additionally the kitchen is well-equiped, from a good selection of knives and cookware to really great drinkware. Being in the wine country, I appreciated being able to drink my wine out of a decent glass. I've stayed in many rentals and often you feel the kitchen is full of hand-me-downs or discarded, less-functional plates, knives and cookware. This was not the case here and it made cooking and eating that much more pleasurable. One of the most amazing features of Crista's place is the large deck with a fireplace. It has an amazing vista and was where we spent every afternoon as the sun warmed the air. When the cool air moved in at dusk, it was great to throw a log in the fireplace and be able to enjoy being outside longer. I don't want to forget to mention the bathroom. The super deep tub is amazing for a nice soak, and the malin + goetz products were a very nice touch. Crista was away when I stayed so I didn't get to meet her in person but she was really great and flexible with the arrangements for arrival, etc… We met her mom when we came but the space is so private I don't think we saw her again all week. I can't say enough how enjoyable the stay was and I hope to come back here again! Thanks Crista!!!!
Crista's place was wonderful and just what we were looking for. It was private with a beautiful view and quiet. We loved the decor and wish we could have stayed longer. We will be back!!
Crista's home was a fantastic retreat from SF into the trees of Russian River country. The home was impreccably decorated, clearly recently, and was fully furnished with anything we could dream of needing. We will stay here again if we ever return to this part of Northern California. Thanks Crista!
Our stay was amazing from start to finish. Photos don't do justice to the beauty of this place. Instantly felt at home, relaxing in light filled living room.
I highly recommend staying here. Not only is the place lovely, but so is the owner. She's got hospitality down to her core. The best hostess.
Truly amazing retreat in Guernville! Photos don't do it justice just like what other people said here. Modern decor with a swing in the living area. Now I want a swing in my future getaway house. The kitchen is well equipped so it is perfect to make your own breakfast and enjoy it at the deck outdoor. It is only 3 mins drive to the town and the river beach. Didn't get to meet Christa in person but he gave us detailed instruction on how to get into the house. Highly recommend this lovely house!
LOVED our retreat in the woods! Fabulously decorated, divine bed and amazing patio. This is the place to stay - just minutes to downtown, less than 1/2 hr to the coast. Crista is an amazing host :)
Great house ...perfect for a couple or 2 plus one guest. Nice modern decor in a great location a short drive from town.
Christa was great!
This sunny retreat is more like a private resort. Crista has created an incredible environment with pleasing decor and many thoughtful appointments make you want to stay in and enjoy the surroundings and the breathtaking views from the deck. I highly recommend this beautiful retreat!
bella persona , e anche collega di lavoro, socievole e simpatica. Grazie Crista
Crista is a really really friendly girl!! Clean, kind..I highly recommend her to all other hosts!!
HI Crista, too bad we did not had the chance to meet you on person, Thank you so much for staying with us and hope to see you again soon !
Crista was super friendly and lovely to host, she was fun to talk to and just had great energy, very easy going and sweet. They took great care of the apartment and left it spotless. I would without a doubt recommend for anyone to host them.
part treehouse, part loft, this spot is quiet and cozy with sleek "forest chic" design and crazy comfortable beds. the kitchen is great for chefs, the bathroom has a spa tub that would fit an amazon, and the view from the deck out into the redwoods will lower your stress level several notches, whether you're sipping morning coffee or an evening manhattan from the stunning living room. definite A+++ on this one - the "sunny modern retreat" available on airbnb is one of my favorite places anywhere!
PS crista is one of those rare people whose sense of design just works. always. i've been staying with her in guerneville for several years and every one of her properties is outfitted with just the right touches to make you feel like you're relaxing in style without feeling at all like you're in a cliched page from a magazine. boon hotel + spa, boon restaurant, and big bottom market are impeccably styled and operated - it's hard not to buy everything when i visit the perfectly curated market. don't miss all these killer spots when you're in town.
Crista is the most on-top-of-her-game person I know. Beautiful sense of style, clean and extremely caring about the comfort of others (hence owning a Hotel/Spa and two restaurants). If you want a relaxed vacation in Guernville, this would most definitely be the place to do it.
Most amazing hideout in Guerneville. Crista's modern, sophisticated, clean style - not to mention the most comfortable California King bed - will have you never wanting to leave. A Heath tiled shower, a swing in the living room and a forest off the porch, what more could you ask for?
Crista is one of the more real, honest, and solid people that I know. She is there for her friends. She has an incredibly big heart. She also has a rad sense of style and design, which makes staying at her place and being around her a lot of fun. I am very glad to know her!
