Welcome to Riverhouse!
Walk through the door and leave the stress behind! Imagine the possibilities...a relaxing weekend with the family, a reunion of old friends, a Girls or Guys weekend getaway or a Holiday getaway! Do nothing, or do it all. Curl up with a good book in front of the fire place. Sunbathe on the deck and enjoy the view of the Gualala River where it meets the Pacific ocean. Play soccer with the kids in the fenced yard. Let the kids play in the yard while you observe from the deck above, with wine in hand! Roast marshmallows in the fire pit for 'smores. Go to Glass Beach in Mendocino, ride the Skunk Train in Fort Bragg, catch a movie in Point Arena. Or leave the kids with the Grandparents and enjoy an adult getaway. There is an endless list of activities from kayaking to hiking to getting massages...The choice is yours...
Our beach house has been lovingly remodeled from shack to chateau! You will find all the comforts of home and then some but the best part is that you're NOT home! You are here in Gualala away from the phone, the bills, the chores and all the other things that stress you out. There are 3 queen beds, and 4 twins. This house is furnished with nice linens, electric blankets and duvets for comfort, a fully stocked kitchen, satellite TV and lots of games and books. There is no dark wood or dated furnishings here...it is light, bright and comfortable!

About Nannette Wilkinson
Nannette and Philip Wilkinson. We are a Physical Therapist and a General Building Contractor. We have transformed this property from little more than a neglected, run-down shack, to its current form.
Nannette Wilkinson purchased this House in 1998
Why Nannette Wilkinson chose Gualala
Because Gualala is amazing! And our home is perfectly situated for privacy yet within walking distance to town.
What makes this House unique
Our property is great for large families or family groups. With 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms there is plenty of room for privacy. Time together can be spent around the large dining table, the site for wonderful meals and games, reconnecting. Things can of course spill out onto the spacious deck for luxuriating in the sound of the ocean, watching the waves, and into the large yard for games, tag, hide and seek. Sneak up to the treehouse for a bird's eye view of things!

Three generations of family gathered at this special home for the Thanksgiving holiday. This home, which sits on a bluff above the place where the Gualala River and Pacific Ocean meet, had everything we could have hoped for. Beautiful views, cozy home, well-stocked kitchen, and plenty of room for everyone. Loved the opportunity to sit on the large deck and listen to the waves as the turkey cooked! And the lighted truck parade with the arrival of Santa was a fun surprise! We hope to stay at this remarkable place again soon.
A lovely house. Everything we needed. Lots of special touches that show care for their guests, A great spot to relax and kick back.
Unforgettable reunion in a beautiful house
Fabulous house, very welcoming. All guests enjoyed bedroom privacy and lovely common area. Great view from platform. Easy walk to Trinks, where people could handle email, buy great coffee. Across the street from fun shops to explore. Superb beach hiking. Everyone of us loved it.
Loved the house and the owner, not pleased with VRBO.
I so enjoyed the house and the owner if amazing. We left the house in excellent condition (10 women who all run households and had kids). The VRBO housekeeping staff indicated there were "dog marks" and they had to do extra cleaning. We did not have a dog and left the place in excellent condition.
Advice - take pictures of all the rooms/bedding to have in your back pocket in case VRBO housekeepers try to scam you on the deposit.
Our family enjoyed a wonderful 3 days at the River House. Well stocked kitchen, nice views, easy walk to town for shopping, restaurants, groceries.
Beautiful views and nice, comfortable home.
The views from this home are beautiful. Would have liked easier coastal access but that's not the nature of the northern california coast. Home is well-furnished with everything you could want and plenty of dishes for everyone. Very clean and comfortable with a responsive host.
Gualala is North of Bodega Bay and South of Mendocino.
Other Activities: Kayaking, Wildlife Viewing, Miniature Golf, Boating, Health/Beauty Spa, Shopping, Basketball Court
Golf: The Sea Ranch Golf Course is just a couple of miles from the house!
