"This property is fantastic. Looks as good in person as it does the photos! House manager was very friendly and helpful. The proximity to the beach and boardwalk were great. The open floor plan was perfect for the feeling of space, even for larger groups. Kids appreciated the puzzles, games, Wii and DVD movie collection. The bikes and surfboards were enjoyed by all. Hot Tub got lots of use! Truly a great Santa Cruz retreat! I would not hesitate to stay here again!"

"Fantastic weekend at this property. The house is spacious and well-appointed. The grounds are gorgeous, with a stunning garden. Excellent location right in the heart of the Russian River Valley. Easy to get to restaurants and wineries. Would stay here again in a heartbeat."

"Where to start! My husband and I were seeking a true getaway near the ocean with proximity to Sonoma wine tasting---well Oyster Shell could not have been more perfect for us. We have not seen this level of sparkling cleanliness ever before in a rental property, well appointed in every way, with every detail attended to by the delightful owner who personally checked us in. The views were such a bonus to the value, from the magical little gardens to the upstairs rooms. We had such fun walking at the beach, and so convenient to be able to shower off outside upon returning to this charming home away from home. Wine tasting just a short drive away, as promised, making for great fun by day then returning to our quiet escape by night. Cannot wait to return again and again, thank you!!"

"It was perfect for our weekend stay. The room was clean and comfortable for what we needed it for. The location was great, walking distance to the downtown Mill Valley, 4 miles from Muir woods, 40-45min drive to san fran with traffic. (Side note- if you plan on going to Muir woods, make arrangements for a ride home because there is no cell phone service there). Checking in and out was easy."
