Guerneville apartment description

Sunset Manor of Guerneville is located in the hills ½ mile east of Guerneville, within walking distance of downtown and the Russian River. It has its own outside entrance, two bedrooms with queen beds, kitchen, and living/dining room, all overlooking spectacular views of the hills above Guerneville.

The building is situated on the slope of the hill below Sunset Avenue itself, on the north side of the street. The guest space is on the lower level, on the north side of the building - away from the street, thereby a affording significant level of privacy and quiet.

The living/dining room is 14' x 19' with a wood-burning fireplace and a large HDTV with Comcast cable service. A big picture window provides a view of the hills, and a glass door leads to a deck with table and chairs for outside dining and a side yard. There is also a large back yard for your dog (the property is 1/5 acre).

Each bedroom has a queen-size bed and a TV. The views from the bedroom windows are stunning - it is a treat to wake up to the sun rising and highlighting the trees! These windows are located significantly above the neighboring homes and are thus afforded a substantial privacy.

Your hosts live above this unit and are available for your convenience as needed - and we promise to respect your privacy!

Guerneville, an unincorporated town of about 2500, is about halfway between Santa Rosa and the Pacific Ocean - approximately ½ hour either way - on the right (north) bank of the Russian River.

Downtown Guerneville is large (compared to, say, Rio Nido) - about 4 blocks square. There is a 24/7 Safeway (looks like every other Safeway, but the people are friendly locals). There are good restaurants nearby - a good resource is the local chamber of commerce.

There are lots of fun things to do in the area - varying from kayaking on the river to theater and the local night spots. Northwood Golf Course is about 3 miles west, just east of Monte Rio.

Armstrong Woods State Park is just 2½ miles away, with nature trails, picnic facilities, and horseback riding. There are at least eight wineries with tasting rooms between here and Santa Rosa.

A great ride is west on highway 116 to Jenner, and then south on Route 1 (Coast Highway) to Tomales Bay and our favorite oyster houses.

This is a peaceful place to stay!

                        I rented this with the idea of staying in town and enjoying my daughter's wedding. The apartment had everything we needed (dishes, glassware, pots and pans, towels) and the accommodations were terrific. Everything is new and fresh. I had my family (five brothers and wives and other relatives) meet there one evening before the wedding and we had plenty of room to meet, eat, chat, laugh and had a wonderful time. We could easily walk down to the Coffee Bazaar for early morning coffee and stroll around town to see what was in the shops. There is a Safeway grocery store in town if you are staying/cooking in. I've eaten at a couple of restaurants in town and they are fine. Don't plan on real "upscale" dining--you won't find much of that in Guerneville. The beach in town on the Russian River is a nice place to cool off if you are interested. Kayak rentals are available in the area and it looked like lots of people took advantage of that although I didn't have time to do so. There are MANY wineries in the area and the ocean beaches aren't far away. Northwood Golf Club is an excellent course in the redwoods of Monte Rio just west of Guerneville. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to anyone and will stay again when I visit my daughter in the future.

                        My family and I plus our two small dogs stayed here for the weekend to celebrate my parents anniversary. It happened to be pouring the entire weekend but we still had a nice time. We ate at the nearby Applewood Inn and it was delicious (5 min drive). The town was just down the hill and we also drove to Korbel (less than 10 min drive). The unit was very clean and well appointed. There were televisions in every room, two computers, WIFI, play station, books, movies, cards, a workout machine, washing machine, dishes, silverware, and more. I guess my only suggestion would be to eventually put in wood/laminate floors since it is a very dog friendly place. The hosts were very helpful and Ben even came down in the late evening after we came back from dinner to help us with the TVs. We had a really great and relaxing experience.

                        Owner response: Your party is just one more reason why we think this is a fun business! We have just this one unit, and living upstairs enjoy your presence. You are not the first to suggest a change in flooring - thank you for the comment.

                        I came to Guerneville with my daughters for our special retreat weekend. The spacious and sunny private apartment was a total delight for all of us. Everything was clean and well maintained, the kitchen was generously furnished with nice quality dishes and pans, and thoughtful amenities including WiFi and two high end computers, televisions, were included everywhere -- even fresh ground gourmet coffee. My daughter discovered a great coffee house a short walk down the hill, and had fun exploring all the shops in Guerneville that were also walking distance. We spent hours in the beautiful Armstrong Redwoods State Park just down the road -- a cathedral of peace and quiet that called us back again and again. The self-contained apartment itself looks out into redwood trees and a quiet yard, and is also surrounded by the kind of quiet that let us all get deep and restful sleep. The beds are very comfortable, and the whole house feels like a private cottage getaway: A true home away from home. Perfect! We all agreed we would recommend Ben and Bill's place -- and their generous hospitality -- to friends and family, and will certainly return again and again. Thank you to Ben and Bill for offering a friendly and warm welcome, and making us feel truly at home. Highly recommended.

                        The apartment was perfect for our girls weekend getaway. We really enjoyed the well stocked kitchen, spacious rooms, flat screen TV's in all the rooms and all the amenities to make us comfortable. the property is clean and well kept. There is a nice coffee shop in walking distance and numerous wineries in the area. Ben and Bill went out of there way to be help and we really enjoyed their hospitality. We would recommend the property to friends and family and look forward to returning.

                        We stayed for only a few days but this clean, extremely comfortable, well located apartment provided everything we needed. The unit opened to a nice garden with a view and the kitchen was fully stocked and great to work in. The computer access and large monitors were very welcome, as were the entertainment options (large screen TV in living room and TVs in each bedroom). We were sorry to leave and plan to return!

                        My husband, a good friend and I just spent a week at Sunset Manor. The cottage was perfect for our needs. We spent our days visiting with family in the area as well as taking in some vineyards. Although the kitchen is small it was more than adequate for us. The living/dining room was a great space for us to entertain and even have an overnight guest stay on the couch which was incredibly easy to convert into a bed. The patio area is lovely and well furnished. The tv and interenet equipment was beyond compare. The beds were very comforable as well. Bill and Ben have thought of everything that guests could need and were very gracious so were Victor and Victoria, their dogs. Our only problem was that the only access is by a set of stairs that were a little treacherous for the three of us who are all seniors. I would return in Sunset Manor again and again.

                        We stayed in this roomy apartment while attending a wedding. It was very comfortable for the 4 of us. I loved the redwood views and quiet neighborhood. It was an easy walk into the cute town. Bill was very helpful when we arrived and I would recommend this location to everyone. Thanks for the lovely weekend!

                        this was a great find! Very comfortable for the 6 of us. We stayed for two days (I wish we had made it three and got there a day earlier). My 2 year old son loved playing on the grass and watching videos. We really enjoyed eating dinner outside, the kitchen was great, everything was really great. Very comfortable place in a very relaxing and laid back town.

                        The apartment was exactly as described: no-frills, clean and comfortable with everything you might need while away from home. The decor was a little spartan for me with nothing but TVs on the walls in the bedrooms and the living/dining room but that's just a style thing. Great location that's an easy half mile walk to the center of town where there are good restaurants and cute shops. The river beach is equally close, and the ocean beach is only a 20 minute drive away. The redwood trees are just up the road at Armstrong Woods State Park. The hosts were friendly and responsive to requests/questions. Otherwise they basically left us alone to enjoy the quiet. They had the most comfortable sofa bed I've ever encountered, one that I would actually sleep on. So when they say the place sleeps six, they mean it. We spent 10 days there the week of the 4th of July and enjoyed the fireworks in town and barbequing on the deck with our friends & family who met up with us for part of our stay. All in all we had a very relaxing and rejuvenating time and would go back again if we were looking for a vacation rental in Guerneville.

                        Me and my friends have spent the 4th of July holiday at the Sunset Manor for the past 3 years and would not think of staying any place else. The cabin is very clean, well stocked, tv's in every room and two (not one) computers with free internet!! We love the quiet location, but are still very close to town which is a quick 5 minute drive down the hill. The owner's Ben and Bill are quite responsive and accommodating, but left us to ourselves our entire stay. I would totally recommend the Sunset Manor over a hotel or an expensive and loud resort any day!
