About the Property

5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps up to 10)

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 is light, bright and comfortable!
