About David Keip

We grew up outside of New York City, went to Yale and Cornell, and raised our families in Sonoma County.

David Keip purchased this house in 2008

Why David Keip chose Guerneville

We have a large family with nine children, their spouses and 10 grandchildren. We bought this house so we could all be together and relax and visit, and enjoy the river, the woods, the ocean and the gardens. We love it.

What makes this house unique

Proximity to so many healthy activities, beautiful forest, great swimming pool, tennis and golf nearby. Our adult children and our grandchildren love to come.

California Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We just loved the house. I went there to celebrate my 30th birthday with my husband and 4 other couples. The house was amazing, so beautiful and so much room. The kitchen was amazing, so much fun to cook and eat together. It was close to all of wine country and within 3 miles of a Redwood State Forest. It had a pool and hot tub and in the garage there was a game room. It was perfect for a large group, with 3 total kitchens and enough beds to sleep 28 people. Just know that some of those sleeping spaces include pull out couches and bunk beds/day beds. I would definitely love to stay again!

Well appointed Home with ample space.

  • 5 of 5

Nine of us stayed in the Valley House for a Thanksgiving get away. The home has large living areas and is exceptionally well appointed. It is located less than a mile from shops and groceries as well as hiking in Armstrong Woods. Vineyards in this immediate area were not affected by the recent fires.

This Home would be excellent for children, there are games, puzzles, a pool, air hockey etc. etc. David responded to our inquiries within the hour. Thanks for sharing your lovely home.

Wonderful property with all of the amenities

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed with 2 other families at Valley Lane. For a grand total of 6 adults and 5 kids, we felt comfortable and really enjoyed our stay. The kids loved being able to wander in the garden in the front yard which is completely fenced, and when it was time for them to jump in the hot tub they had a blast in their as well. The kitchen was beyond organized with every drawer and cabinet clearly labeled and appropriately filled with so many different supplies we had plenty to choose from. The BBQ appeared brand new as well. We felt comfortable letting the kids get into exploring here as there were plastic bowls and cups as well as adult-friendly settings. There wasn't much they could mess up, and so much for all of us to enjoy. There were so many different bedrooms to choose from and even though a couple of kids switched rooms mid-night (of course) they all had someone they felt comfortable staying. The house is an easy mile walk to town, a quick jog to Armstrong Redwoods State Park, and located in a quiet neighborhood. We would definitely stay here again and happily enjoy the property.

Great family compound for reunion

  • 5 of 5

10 of us stayed at this property for the weekend for a family gathering. Everything was perfect!

We LOVED the garden and the landscaping. We spent practically the entire weekend outside. Its obvious lots work and care has been put into the landscaping. Having the gate closed made the property feel totally isolated and we hung out in the front yard for one evening!

The inside of the house is also lovely. Great for our group was that there was ample space for everyone to gather in the living room as well as a big dining room table for family meals.

Thank you again!

Great home for big groups. Loved the outside area.

  • 4 of 5

Overall this was a great place. The hot tub and pool weren't sufficiently cleaned which was a bummer since those were really the whole reason we stayed at the house - but everything else was nice and the place was great for our large group of people.
