Property description

Hummingbird House is a beautiful find: a lovely well-equipped home on a sunny property with views, privacy, numerous amenities, and a central Russian River Valley location. Sit out on one of the lovely decks with morning coffee, soaking up the sun, enjoying the tranquility. Then, set off on a great day of exploring all Sonoma County has to offer! When the day is done, come back, make dinner with the local ingredients you’ve collected, and take an evening soak in the large hot tub.

Hummingbird House is a 3 story home nestled against a sloping hill and overlooking a grove of redwood trees. The top story, which is also the entry-level, has the open living room, kitchen and dining areas. The kitchen is well-equipped, the dining table comfortably seats 6 people, and the living room has floor to ceiling windows, a large couch, a flat screen TV (you can log in to your Netflix, Pandora or HuluPlus accounts) and a wood-burning stove. Sliding doors lead from the dining area out to the first of three decks, where the gas BBQ and outdoor dining table are located. Also on the top story are a small office, with a desk perfect for finishing a bit of work or browsing the internet, and a bathroom with a free-standing tub.

The second story, accessed by stairs from the living area, has a bedroom with a queen bed, a half bath/laundry room, and the master bedroom, with a king bed, its own bathroom and sliding doors to the middle story deck. The master bedroom bathroom has a shower/bathtub combo. Stairs from the middle story hall lead to the lowest story, which is entirely made up of a bedroom suite with a queen bed, small sitting area and a bathroom with a shower. A door leads from the suite to the lowest deck, where the large hot tub and lounge chairs are located. The hot tub deck can also be accessed by a spiral staircase from the second level deck or from stairs leading up from the yard.

The meadow-like yard is large and is full of open space and scattered fruit trees. The upper portion of the sloping hillside is tastefully landscaped. There is plenty of space for kids to play and dogs to run (please note the yard is not fenced, so unleashed dogs need to be under voice control). Surrounding the open meadow area is a forest of redwood trees. The Russian River is just down the road, and river access is less than a mile away. The start of Russian River Valley Wineries is less than 3 miles away.

Hummingbird House features a keyless entry system, meaning you will have the convenience of an express check-in directly at the home!

MAXIMUM OCCUPANCY: The maximum occupancy at Hummingbird House is 6.

QUIET HOURS: Quiet hours are from 10:00 p.m. until 7:00 a.m. Outdoor amplified sound is prohibited at any time.

PARKING: On-site parking is permitted for a maximum of 3 vehicles. RVs, trailers and campers are prohibited, per the Sonoma County Vacation Rental Ordinance.

Additional information about rental rates:

Additional Fees -Cleaning/Linens Fee -11% Taxes on Rent and Cleaning (9% Transient Occupancy Tax and 2% Business Area Improvement Fee) -Damage Protection, see below -Optional Travel Insurance DAMAGE PROTECTION: Guests choose between a $49 Vacation Rental Damage Protection Fee and a $1000 Refundable Security Deposit. A $30 Processing Fee is added to reservations with the Security Deposit option. The Vacation Rental Damage Protection is strongly recommended and is the option most guests choose. It covers up to $3000 of accidental damage and can be used for many common 'damages,' such as an excessively dirty hot tub or pet-related damage. CHOOSING OPTIONAL FEES: If you book through VRBO/HomeAway, both Damage Protection options and the Optional Travel Insurance show in the rates. State your preference in the comments section of the reservation and we will adjust the rates before processing payment. If no preference is stated, we will contact you prior to processing payment.
When a reservation is received, we process payment and send an email confirmation within 24 hours or less. Confirmed reservations are final. NIGHT MINIMUMS: -Two night minimum October to Memorial Day Weekend (holidays have a higher night minimum) -Three night minimum Memorial Day Weekend through late June, and September -Four night minimum end of June through August, expect week minimum over the July 4th Holiday and the first week of August. -Major holidays including Thanksgiving, Winter Break and President's Day may have a longer night minimum. -All specials exclude holidays and must be mentioned at the time of reservation. Read our Reservation Info for more information on our policies, including night minimums and rates.
NOTE: We use an automated system that integrates the VRBO/HomeAway booking engine with our own reservation software. This is generally a good thing; calendars and rates are more accurate than they ever have been and are becoming more reliable every day. However, this is new technology, and has occasionally malfunctioned. If your reservation seems to go through for less than the stated night minimums, or if the rental rates or availability seem too good to be true, be aware that the system may be experiencing an integration issue and your reservation may not be accepted. If you have any concerns, please don't hesitate to give us a call. TOT #2111 Permit #ZPE11-0026

Russian River Vacation Homes

Year Purchased: 2010

About: We are Russian River Vacation Homes, a part of D&G Equity Management, Inc., a family owned and locally owned/operated property management company. In 1980, D&G founders and owners Michael and Patty saw a need in the area for habitable, affordable housing. At that time, many of the little cabins along the Russian River, originally built as summer cabins, were unsuitable for year-round occupancy. D&G assisted property owners with fixing up and renting their cabins. As the largest property management company in western Sonoma County, D&G Equity Management continues to be a staple in the Russian River community. Russian River Vacation Homes is an off-shoot of D&G. One fine day in 1985, Michael's client, Bob, asked "Hey Mike, can you rent my cabin out just for the week or weekend instead of by the month?" Michael said "Sure!" and Russian River Vacation Homes was born. As renting vacation rentals became more popular, Russian River Vacation Homes grew into a full-time business with its own office. Today, Russian River Vacation Homes professionally manages over 60 high-quality vacation rentals. We strive to make each and every stay the best one ever. If you have any questions or concerns about reserving or staying with us, please don't hesitate to contact us! We are here to help.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Hummingbird House is the best of both worlds! You'll feel like you're tucked away in the forest, but you're just minutes from river beaches, restaurants, and tasting rooms! Hummingbird House has great outdoor space, including a large yard and multiple decks. This is a great home to simply get away and relax, and it's also a great central location for your wine country adventure!
