Guestbook comments from the manager

"Loved the View and had a great time here. Hot tub was great sitting and looking at the moon and stars at night. Got to see seals in the river. Wonderful sunsets. Cute little house. First time stay in Jenner. Weather was just wonderful. Really love the deck. Thank you so much for opening up your house to us. Was really wonderful sitting here at the table watching this beautiful view eating breakfast, lunch & dinner, all was very relaxing. Beautiful sunrise too. Going for a walk on the beach today and then shopping at gift shop. Watching the beautiful waves. We had a wonderful time and would love to come back here again."

A wonderful vacation....Didn't want to leave

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the home on Sunday around 5pm. We walked into the home and it was a little stuffy but as soon as you open the windows and sliding glass window it instantly aired out and cooled down. We walked onto the deck and the view was AMAZING!!! I started the BBQ and was happy to see that the propane was full and they left a spare just in case(which we didn't need). That night there was a full moon so you could see the ocean without any problems. Next day we drove into Bodega Bay to take our dogs to the beach. It was so nice to be able to leave the busy area to come back to a quit little town of Jenner and hang out on the deck. Overall we loved the home we will be coming back to stay. It was a very pet friendly home and it was great to actually have a full family vacation.

Exactly What We Wanted!

  • 5 of 5

This property was adorable and the views were fantastic. We also stumbled upon what seemed like a secret beach less than ten minute's walk away. Our dog loved the area and the house itself. Super relaxing and a great way to get away from it all. Not to mention the hosts were so thoughtful - checking in with us twice before we arrived, and even mailing back a set of keys that we accidentally left at the property. Wonderful customer service and a gem of a house!

Beautiful view and complete relaxation.

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time on the Sonoma Coast. We really enjoyed the River Sea property. It is a sweet comfortable space with a great view of the Russian River and the Pacific. The hot tub under the stars is wonderful. Love that there is no internet or cell service so you can truly disconnect. Felt like a true getaway. Can't wait to return.

A very relaxing get away.

  • 4 of 5

My husband, dog, and I stayed at River Sea for one whole week. The view was superb. The location is great. The house was comfortable but we had some issues. The bath tub plug did not work so I couldn't take a bath. The property management folks were very good at sending someone over to correct the situation and we were able to improvise a method so I could fill the tub. The other problem was the Direct TV did not work at all the whole time we were there. Again, the management company sent someone right over to try to fix it but it ended up the cables were corroded at the satellite dish and we were never able to get TV. The owners tried to get Direct TV out to fix it, but they couldn't come until after our stay. Luckily they had a good library of DVDs and we watched those at night. The carpet was in dire need of a steam cleaning and we did report that.

The beaches were great, the hiking was awesome the wine tasting was top notch. The home is located in a nice neighborhood with hilly streets that are great for talking a walk with the dog. The bed was so comfortable that we actually slept until 9 a.m. on two occasions! We always get up at 6 or 7 at the latest. We can't ever remember sleeping so late. It was a a great vacation.

Romantic Getaway

  • 4 of 5

I love to stay in "off the beaten path" locations that are both relaxing and have beautiful surroundings, so I wasn't disappointed when I pulled into Jenner and could see that the town was just what I had envisioned. Pulling up to the house, it didn't really look like much. My guess is these cottages have been around for quite some time. As we opened the cottage door, we were pleasantly suprised. We knew it was small from the pictures, but the cabin is well kept with everything you need for a relaxing vacation. The hot tub was a major plus! Although the cottage has two bedrooms, I would only recommend it for a couple. Four people would be tight. We opened up the bedroom to the living room and it made a much more roomy feel. The night we arrived we had a stunning view of the river and ocean, I was in awe. Unfortunately for us, that was the only view I had of the ocean the entire four days we stayed. The fog rolled in the next morning (which I expected) but never left (which I didn't). We lived in a misty foggy rain our entire 4 day stay. Our views, vanished. Don't let this discourage you to stay here, the place is great, we just have tremendously bad luck. They broke records on rain fall set in 1962 while we were there. Since we were rained in, we did a lot of traveling in the car. Highway 1 to the north was a beautiful drive, albeit a little scary. We drove the north side of the Russian River all the way to Healdsburg which was also quite beautiful with the redwoods followed by the tuscan style rolling vineyards. We even had to cross a beautiful old one lane iron bridge that crossed the river before we arrived in Healdsburg. The area is absolutely stunning, the house is cozy and comfortable, the view was amazing (at least the first night). I would definately stay here again for a romantic getaway. The only change I can see that would have made my stay better (besides the weather, which was out of their control), would be to have a weather radio available. During our stay, we knew we wouldn't have phone or internet service, but the satellite tv also would not work most of the time due to the weather. It was frustrating not knowing if the doom and gloom was going to leave and we would once again be blessed with sunshine. I like isolation, but when it comes to the weather, that's fairly important. A weather radio would have made a huge difference.

Owner's Response: Thanks Terri for posting your review and stay. We hope that the rainy weather will not deter you to returning to Jenner when visiting CA again. It was rather odd to have the rain this time of year. We are glad you had at least a glimpse the first day and made the best of enjoying the coast while here.

Cozy comfy home in gorgeous setting

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at the River Sea! We enjoyed the small fireplace, hot tub, soft linens, and great views of the peaceful river spilling out into the ocean. The walk into town and back was just right to get the blood pumping. We loved the secluded feeling. We spent so much time at Fort Ross and Duncans Mills that we actually ran out of time to go time! Thank you for sharing your home with us. Also, it was great to note that there is a pack-n-play in the second bedroom for those of you who have babies.
