5 of 5

We stayed at the beach retreat and had a great time. Super family and dog friendly house/community. The river is a short walk from the house and we basically spend most of our days on the river with our kids and dogs. The house was clean and very spacious for a family of 4. Everything we needed to cook was in the house. Great for entertaining too. Thanks for a wonderful time.

Beach Retreat

  • 4 of 5

The Beach Retreat is a really great spot to spend time when in the Guerneville area. It is only about a eight minute drive to downtown Guerneville and yet is only about a five minute walk to a private beach area along the river. The view from its balcony is lovely (although there in no view of the river itself) and provides perfect privacy. The master bedroom is separate from the the rest of the house and also provides privacy and quiet that are very nice. The kitchen has recently been remodeled and the appliances were very nice. Parking for up to three cards is conveniently right out front. The fenced-in yard is great if one had dogs.

On the other hand, when the place gets warm, it is hard to get air circulation because the only opening in the back of the house is the back door to the balcony. When sitting outside, there is some truck noise from Highway 116. While overall quite nice, parts of the house looked a little shabby -- an ottoman in the living room that has seen better days, moldings that need care, some parts of the house the cleaners missed (dust), a kitchen that had basic supplies but we've seen better (e.g., salt and pepper were supplied but no other spices). The balcony railing was not as sturdy as one might like. Especially near the gate it seemed really wobbly. We wanted to do a really good job of cleaning up as we had dogs with us, but the vacuum cleaners in the house were in poor condition and made extra work for us.

Perfect place for a wine tasting getaway

  • 5 of 5

The listing was very representative of the location, layout and amenities.

The property was very clean and well-maintained

The owner provided great service and good communication of everything we needed to know.

I would recommend this property to family and friends.

The property is at a great location for wine tasting, visiting town or any water activities on the river.

Beautiful, sunny house

  • 5 of 5

Loved the deck and the hot tub! Russian River Rentals were on top of things when we called them for more towels. Kayaks were a lot of fun although the access to the "beach" was less than I ideal-mostly mud.

Just what you need for a river getaway

  • 5 of 5

I had family coming in from out of town and wanted to get out of the city so we rented this lovely river home. It's not riverfront in the sense that you can see the river, it's a bit of a walk down to the river, but that's not a bad thing at all. The layout is great - one room has its own bathroom and then the other two rooms are near the other bathroom so it works well for multiple couple/family/people who need more privacy than others. It's a really clean place with a fully loaded kitchen - great appliances and gear. The hot tub is large and gets hot up to 104 degrees which was a change from other places I've rented with older tubs that seem to never get past 101. One slight drawback is that none of the windows in the living room & kitchen open up so the place is quite stuffy and you have to have the door to the deck open to get some circulation. Maybe a ceiling fan would help move the air around to make up for that. A bonus of this rental is that it's perfect for dogs. We didn't end up bringing ours after all but once I saw the space, the fencing, and the beach area, I knew I would be renting this place again the next time I do want to get away with the dogs.
