Raves for River Ranch

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented River Ranch for 10 days for a relaxing time of wine tasting, golf and hiking. On the weekends our daughter came up from San Francisco to join us at the pool and enjoy the sunny weather. The house is comfortable, meticulously clean and tastefully decorated. The beds are very comfortable and the kitchen is modern and complete. We enjoyed the stunning backyard and pool. We got in the hot tub after a round of golf (Northwoods Golf is a wonderful 9 hole course only a few minutes away), played bocci and of course loved the large pool that was always an inviting temperature as a result of the solar cover that closed each evening. The house has 3 bedrooms and very nice baths so clearly two or three couples would be comfortable. We have already decided to be back next summer!

Amazing House!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I along with two other couples recently rented the River Ranch house for a relaxing weekend, and some wine tasting in the Sonoma area. The property is nestled into an area that provides tranquility and relaxation. Its location is convenient to town, vineyards, and Armstrong State Park. We enjoyed grilling, late afternoon swims in the pool, and an evening fire under the stars. The house came supplied with everything one would need and was plenty spacious for the 6 of us. The outdoor space was paradise. The house exceeded all of our expectations. We'd recommend it to our friends and will be sure to return. Thanks for sharing your home, Sean and David.

I wanted to write to thank Shawn and David for the opportunity to rent their fantastic home. I was pleasantly surprised that the house was even better than the pictures. No detail was missed in making this home a perfect get away. I hope to return many times.

An Oasis in the Russian River Valley

  • 5 of 5

My family rented the River Ranch for a stay in the Russian River Valley this past weekend, and we were absolutely blown away. The property is fabulously designed and meticulously maintained; every detail has been thought of. The pool, the deck and hot tub, the back garden and fire pit - all make for outdoor paradise. The kitchen and living areas are integrated and spacious, perfect for cooking and socializing. We couldn't think of a single thing we would change, even if we could! Besides, Armstrong Woods reserve is up the road, Guerneville is down the street and the entire Russian River Valley - canoeing, biking, wineries, breweries, shopping - is at your fingertips. We hope to be back very soon! Thank you so much Sean & David!!

Amazing house!

  • 5 of 5

We love spending time in the Russian river and this rental was perfect. It was comfortable, clean, and spacious. The saline pool was ideal for daily swims. We barbecued everyday and barely left the home during our week stay. Booking the rental was easy and Sean was highly professional. We adored the River ranch!

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the ranch in July 2010 with two adults, one toddler and a golden retriever. We all had a great time, the house is gorgeous, the garden is spectacular, the pool is divine. We can't wait to go back!
