About The Owner

I started out with a friend looking for a B&B. As the story goes she got up early one morning and after listening to all the woes from the owner she said 'No Way' --'This is as hard as our regular job.' We are both nurses. I was too afraid to go it alone-- So we thought how about the B (bed) with out the B(breakfast) and that lead me to a vacation home. She eventually bought one too not very far from mine. I never heard of the Russian River except for a Chardonnay I always liked. When I was shown around the area I fell in love with the Giant Redwood trees and the Ocean Breeze and thought what a great location being close to the wineries of course but also the coast and enjoying the river. When I saw this home I had a picture in my mind of grape vines going up the long drive and Vista Serena seemed like the perfect name to gather family and friends for fun and relaxation. The 10 year old vines were planted in 2007. I am learning about pruning. Table Grapes made sense so we can all enjoy them immediately. I hope you come share my beautiful Vista and make wonderful memories to last a long long time.

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

Why The Owner chose Russian River

I live in Orange County and the Russian River is a wonderful escape and change of life style. I love being able to walk to town and restaurants and shoppes. The crisp air and breeze spreads a clean scent of redwood trees to the whole area.

Of course all the wineries are great but so is golf, hiking and boating/swimming in the river. There are so many choices and fun things to do each day.

The California Coast in this area is beautiful. From Bodega Bay to Mendocino has unbelievable views as you drive the coast. Great restaurants overlooking the water in Jenner just 14 miles away.

Some days I just sit on the deck and walk among the grape vines and Just Chill Out

What makes this house unique

Location Location Location

Walking to town-river-beach- forget the car

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Clare,

My family and I would like to thank you for giving us the opportunity to have a new experience in a new location. Your very comfy home was so welcoming and invited us in with all its charm. We had the BEST family weekend...Goat Rock Beach...Jenner...A hike through Armstrong Woods...A stroll over the bridge to Downtown/River...of course a stop at Korbel for a little tasting, and our delicious family dinners. A time that was filled with lots of stories and laughter. We couldn't have asked for anything more. You have thought of everything to make your guests comfortable and even for the furry babies.�� We definitely plan to come back!!! I hope that Elizabeth found your home in good order when she arrived today.

Thank You and CHEERS!!!


Jean, Geoff, Katie, Eric and Jen (we ended up with only 5 because Jen's boyfriend couldn't join us)

PS I enjoyed chatting with you on the phone.

Wonderful time @ Vista Serena

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at Vista Serena and Clare was a great host. The house is walking distance to Guerneville and was ideally situated near the river which is a few minutes drive. The house was very comfortable and very well appointed. We spent most of our time in the living room and the wonderful deck overlooking the property. The kitchen is loaded with every possible implement to cook any meal and all the appliances worked perfectly. The bathrooms were super clean and included soap, shampoo and more than enough towels. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely come back to Vista Serena in the future. Only gripe is the barbecue which could use some help. And, Clare is truly a kind and wonderful host which makes everything better.

Owner's Response: I do appreciate you lovely review and I am most pleased that you and your family had a great time and birthday celebration. Thank you for heads up on the grill. I am perplexed with the grills. I have 2 grills. One is the typical propane gas grill for charring foods example steaks and burgers. The second propane grill is info-red indirect cooking for slower cooking example chicken, fish and even a roast. I thought by having the 2 grills guests have a choice to which one is best for their meal. Maybe my explanation needs to be expanded upon on my House Info Sheets. Or maybe I am just making it too complicated or one is wearing out. I will be doing my home fall maintenance the month of October including refinishing all the hardwood flooring and will take a closer look at each grill to see they are functioning properly and replace as necessary. You need to BBQ in Sonoma County. Hope you and your wonderful family all come back. Clare

Family Get-together

  • 5 of 5

I rented Vista Serena over Labor Day weekend for our family. The house was large enough for 6 adults, 1 toddler and 1 dog. Everyone had a great time. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you could possibly need. Refrigerator ice machine was well used, due to 100 degree weather. The king bed upstairs in the master was firm, but the queen bed and the twin beds down stairs are soft. The younger adults enjoyed the hot tub in the evening, when the weather cooled down a little.

Downtown is within walking distance (heading left on Drake Rd, passing under Hiway 116, following the road to the right, you will see the walking bridge), and Johnson's beach is located in the downtown area (Church St). There is also a Safeway on Main St, in case you forgot anything.

Clare, the owner, was quick to respond to my emails, answering questions. She even called after we arrived to make sure everything was to our satisfaction. She is a very pleasant person and easy to talk to. I would highly recommend her home.

Owner's Response: Thank you Diane and family for choosing "Vista Serena" for your Labor Day Weekend Vacation spot. It was a pleasure having your family stay at my home. I am glad you liked the location with a walk to town and the beach. It is always nice to see a family getting together and enjoying Guerneville and the Russian River Valley. I look forward to your return. Clare

Lovely and spacious

  • 5 of 5

We loved Serena Vista. Two families had tons of room to spread out and relax. The hot tub was delightful. And we loved that we did not need to drive anywhere. Town, park and river are all walkable.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to send a review. Yes I think "Vista Serena" is perfect for 2 families with children so you each have your own floor for bedrooms and bathrooms. It makes it nice for children to have that play area on the second floor with TV and DVD so they can enjoy being together while Moms and Dads are enjoying a nice dinner on the main floor. Hope you all return for another vacation next year. Clare

Another Successful Girls Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Vista Serena for our annual girls getaway. It was spacious, extremely well maintained, really comfortable and a perfect floorplan. We spent a fair amount of time just being in the house relaxing. Everyone made themselves at home easily in the kitchen to make breakfast on their own while one of us was in there all of the time "creating" snacks for all to enjoy. The home was located within walking distance of the Guerneville "main drag" which my college age daughter and her friend took advantage of even though they drove their own car. It was conveniently located close to Johnson beach and easy access to the highway for day trips to Sonoma and the coast. The owner was really easy to work with and very reasonable. The only draw back was that the neighbors enjoyed their recreational cannabis several times and the smell drifted over to us and was fairly strong given we kept the doors to the outside deck open most of the time. This is just the nature of Sonoma county. I'm willing to bet this is an issue no matter where you stay. A great vacation!!! We are talking about returning to Vista Serena next summer.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. I do appreciate it knowing how busy everyone is these days. Glad you all had fun relaxing at Vista Serena and enjoyed Sonoma County. Sounds like you all did the same things my family does when we get together at Vista Serena. Everyone has their specialty snack they make for the whole group. I really focus on having a kitchen with all the small appliances and gadgets one needs to play chef. Elizabeth does a fantastic job at keeping the home clean. We have a routine to keep it maintained. This year we had the whole outside and decks painted. The hard floors will be refinished in October followed with our 2X a year carpet and furniture cleaning by the the best ( according to me) carpet cleaner in Santa Rosa "Star." He has been maintaining my home since I started. I am so pleased you were pleased and look forward to your return next year. Clare

A great place to stay while vacationing on the Russian River!

  • 5 of 5

The main living/kitchen floorplan is spacious and comfortable for enjoying family and guests - plenty of seating for everyone. I loved that I could snuggle with my kids all around me as we watched movies in the evening. The couch is amazing!

I was worried about not having A/C during the recent heatwave, but we followed Clare's advice about when to pull the curtains & when to open doors for a cross-breeze, and the house was definitely comfortable when we returned from the river.

Everyone in my family agreed that the beds and pillows were comfortable.

The spice cabinet was nicely stocked, as was the sunscreen/lotion/sundries drawer in the main bathroom.

We would love to visit again next summer! I would recommend Vista Serena to my family & friends. Convenient location & comfortable accommodations.

OH! Also, we noticed that the prices in town were reasonable - no horrible price gouging.

Owner's Response: Shawn, Thank you so much for the wonderful review. I appreciate you taking the time to share your experiences at "Vista Serena." I too do find the town of Guerneville is committed to hospitality and do work very hard at keeping prices reasonable as well as offering lots of choices to dine,and shop. Having an in town Safeway is wonderful. Location is great and we are blessed with the river and redwoods and the coast so close. And of course the 100 + wineries is great. Thank you for giving "Vista Serena" a chance and hope you all return. Clare
