Sunset Manor of Guerneville is located in the hills ½ mile east of Guerneville, within walking distance of downtown and the Russian River. It has its own outside entrance, two bedrooms with queen beds, kitchen, and living/dining room, all overlooking spectacular views of the hills above Guerneville.
The building is situated on the slope of the hill below Sunset Avenue itself, on the north side of the street. The guest space is on the lower level, on the north side of the building - away from the street, thereby a affording significant level of privacy and quiet.
The living/dining room is 14' x 19' with a wood-burning fireplace and a large HDTV with Comcast cable service. A big picture window provides a view of the hills, and a glass door leads to a deck with table and chairs for outside dining and a side yard. There is also a large back yard for your dog (the property is 1/5 acre).
Each bedroom has a queen-size bed and a TV. The views from the bedroom windows are stunning - it is a treat to wake up to the sun rising and highlighting the trees! These windows are located significantly above the neighboring homes and are thus afforded a substantial privacy.
Your hosts live above this unit and are available for your convenience as needed - and we promise to respect your privacy!
Guerneville, an unincorporated town of about 2500, is about halfway between Santa Rosa and the Pacific Ocean - approximately ½ hour either way - on the right (north) bank of the Russian River.
Downtown Guerneville is large (compared to, say, Rio Nido) - about 4 blocks square. There is a 24/7 Safeway (looks like every other Safeway, but the people are friendly locals). There are good restaurants nearby - a good resource is the local chamber of commerce.
There are lots of fun things to do in the area - varying from kayaking on the river to theater and the local night spots. Northwood Golf Course is about 3 miles west, just east of Monte Rio.
Armstrong Woods State Park is just 2½ miles away, with nature trails, picnic facilities, and horseback riding. There are at least eight wineries with tasting rooms between here and Santa Rosa.
A great ride is west on highway 116 to Jenner, and then south on Route 1 (Coast Highway) to Tomales Bay and our favorite oyster houses.
This is a peaceful place to stay!

Nice quiet getaway
We enjoyed a very nice quiet weekend at Sunset Manor. The owners live upstairs, but completely respected our privacy. They were also readily available when we needed anything. Overall, a nice place to stay for a get-away.
Loved the place.
Great value and minutes away from downtown Guerneville.
Spent a weekend here with my family. I was thoroughly impressed how professional the whole check in and tour was. The property had everything we needed to enjoy ourselves. Great entertainment setup, barbecue grill and outdoor deck, an exercise room, even a computer and printer. The kitchen, though a little small, had everything we needed(except groceries of course) to cook all our meals. Will be back next summer and recomend this property to anyone great accommodations without paying an arm and a leg.
Great property! Amazing view, and friendly owners!
This property is great for getaway! It's close to lots of beautiful sights and fun adventures. The owners are very accommodating and kind. Beautiful view!
Thank you! We had a good time as your host. We look forward to seeing you again!
My impression: cold but clean
Overall, it was a great stay. I found the place very clean and well kept. That being said, the front room was freezing even with the heater on hi (80) and a fire lit. We could not get it warm up there at all. Our rooms were very toasty though with the heaters on in them.
We're mystified by the complaint about the heat. Since we didn't hear about it until after the tenants left, we have no way to determine why it was cold. However, the only previous complaint we've had came from a tenant who didn't find the thermostat!
These were great tenants who left Sunset Manor exceptionally neat and clean.
Good location within walking distance to town. Natural setting and quiet privacy
The owners were welcoming and nice. The 2 beds very comfortable. Lots of hot water
In the shower.
The drawbacks for us 3 ladies was the musty smell, the mold in the shower caulking
and although there is working condition of most things there could be repairs cosmetcally
There was sufficient heat in bedroom wall heaters but main living area was inadequate and we had to turn on oven to warm the living room somewhat.
I believe pets are allowed so that would explain urine smell down to door of apartment.
We are grateful that the ladies have taken the time for a thoughtful review.
We are aware of a number of needed improvements; however, the inadequacy of the shower head is new to us.
The heat issue is odd, since there is a very adequate wall heater with a thermostat on the wall. The oven is in the adjacent kitchen and certainly very inadequate for the purpose. We provide a booklet to every tenant with information about Sunset Manor, and the heat for the living room is clearly described. We are also available to help 24/7.
Many wineries nearby with wine tasting; Armstrong Redwoods State Park; Russian River nearby; 15 miles to Pacific Ocean
