Monte Rio house description

Rio Casa Del Sol is a beautiful unique two story vacation rental. Enter through a lush two-story high atrium with a waterfall and koi pond. Listen to the soothing sound of the babbling waterfall as you cook in the well-equipped kitchen, play a game of pool in the game room, curl up by the wood burning stove, or relax on the deck taking in the redwood and river views. The upstairs offers two bedrooms each with a queen bed, and doors leading out to a balcony overlooking the front yard & golf course. The hallway nook offers a desk with wireless DSL Internet access and nationwide phone service.

The spacious kitchen, living and dining room feature open beam ceilings, skylights, and large windows with spectacular views of the redwoods and front atrium. The master bedroom has a private bathroom with a large glass shower and French doors leading out to the fenced in patio and spa. The patio has stairs leading up to a large deck overlooking the Russian River. Stairs from the deck lead directly to a shared river beach.

Rio Casa Del Sol is conveniently located walking distance to the Northwood Golf Course, Restaurant, Bar and Coffee Shop. It is a short drive to downtown Guerneville, Korbel and many Russian River Valley wineries and dining establishments. It is only a 20 minute drive to the Sonoma Coast (Jenner & Bodega Bay).

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      About the owner: I am a violist and composer. Love to fish, hike, kayak, enjoy nature & books. I write via the Internet, teach and perform in the North bay, Sonoma winecountry, Healdsberg, Napa wine country & San Francisco.

                      Why the Owner Chose Monte Rio:
                      The home is right on the river & the golf course is right out the front door. I can stroll to the coffee shop and post office in the morning within a few minutes.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The back deck has some great views of the redwoods & river. The atrium has a way of calming you down when you first walk in. I call it the 'de-stressing chamber'. The large gold fish (cousins of Koi) always come up to greet you when it's not too cold. We love our kitchen! It has lot's of granite-top counter space. The 'open floor' design is spacious. That plus the vaulted wood beam ceilings give a sense of even greater space. There are large picture windows everywhere so your indoors with views of the outdoors & redwoods. On clear nights we bundle up & lay on the deck at night & watch the stars.
