It's very easy to communicate with Trini or Star Rentals. The house was AMAZING! Not only the decor is fitting our aesthetics, the location is great. We enjoyed the hot tub, morning sun and the view!
The road was a bit busy as expected, so the noise was a mix between nature and cars.
Other than that, I'd totally recommend this place!
The house was exactly as it was pictured on this site, clean, inviting and very cozy. Everything we needed was included in the house and the hosts were very accommodating and our stay was incredible. I highly recommend this vacation home. We will definitely be back!
The house was great! It's very roomy and well laid out. The hot tub was a hit :) You get a bit of a workout getting up the stairs to get to the house. The drive getting up to it was a bit dicey...and parking is at a premium, but it's worth it. Phone, wifi, cable, blue-ray player, wii, and movies and games (wii and board) are all provided.
This place is an absolute treasure. My GF is an interior designer and loved everything about this space-- and kept pointing out every small detail that made this spot so special. We cooked, we made smores outside at the fire pit, we used the hot tub every day/evening. We drank wine on the porches.... we fell asleep watching netflix on a gorgeous HD screen every night. This will be our go-to spot when we want to go to the Russian River.
Monte Rio is an adorable town and this cottage really made us feel like were were part of it, even if it was just for a weekend. We had several couples stay since we were all going to the same wedding. The house was well equipped for a group like this and we were very comfortable.
The location is a bit difficult to navigate to, but the home is decently accommodated. Deck is nice. We had trouble with the hot tub.
What a wonderful week at River Gem! The booking process was quick and easy and every question and concern I had was answered promptly. The house was even better in person! We must have spent the entire time on the back deck. The garden and yard was much larger than we had thought it would be and we spent many hours lounging under the apple trees. We took the river gem canoe out for a 5 mile trip down the Russian River! We will most definitely be back to rent River Gem again- words can't express just how perfect this house was!
We arrived late, but the directions were thorough and made getting into the house very easy. The house had been well stocked with towels and sheets, and the amenities were all fantastic and as described. The spa and pool which were kept clean - as evidenced by the very brief visit from the pool guy on Monday. The neighborhood is really sweet, and deserves a few morning walks with coffee, and the proximity to the main town area and other River Road establishments can't be beat - as long as you don't mind walking up a little hill on the way back home, which we did not!
Everything was perfect. The photos represent exactly what the house is like inside and out. The home was so comfortable to relax in, and all of the furnishings and kitchen setup made our stay so easy and comfortable. The river access was excellent, the fire pit and hot tub were great in the evening, and the remote feel of the property and surroundings really gave it a very special touch. Perhaps the best part was the deck, all day long. It was relaxing to sit out there in the morning and watch the birds in the warm sunrise, it was great to have lunch in the shade, and it was the BEST to stretch out at night and stargaze. One of the most beautiful star skies I've ever seen. Loved playing music over the outdoor speakers as well. It was such a nice touch to make the whole world seem perfect there. Would love to come back again and again. What a wonderful home on the river!
The Green Ridge Retreat was a wonderful place to celebrate my birthday with two friends. The home was very modern, spacious, clean and cozy. The kitchen is stocked as a chef's kitchen and the grill on deck added to the cooking experience! We enjoyed time relaxing on the deck and in the hot tub, but missed the loungers pictured in the post. The bedrooms were all spacious and comfortable, but it is important to note that the third bedroom is below the deck and only accessible from the outside and does not have direct access to a bathroom. This was a happy place to stay!
