My extended family has vacationed at the Russian River for four years, and although we've enjoyed every home we've stayed in, we never found one that fully meets our needs...until we found the Jade House this summer! The home is beautiful, clean, modern, light, with lovely views of the trees and the river...There are lovely outdoor decks (with hot tub), and it's a short easy walk to a small private beach that's safe for young children.

We had a lovely time and particularly liked that there were two separate living spaces, so people with kids could stay in one and people who wanted to sleep in could stay in another. We had an amazing weekend!
While there was ample room for our girls weekend for 5, it is obvious the lack of care this place receives. The floors feel sticky and baseboards are thick with dust. There were spiders and dusty spider webs in many of the corners and we requested the shower curtain upstairs be replaced -- it was covered in mold. Note that it is a "vintage" tub requiring a surrounding curtain. The tub is in front of a large window facing a house in close proximity. They replaced the white moldy curtain, with a clear one. We proceeded to take our showers downstairs to keep from giving the neighbors a peepshow.
While the furniture/decorations are pretty on paper and color scheme looks great in photos, the walls and items are banged and bruised and covered in filthy handprints which is such a shame! This house could be incredibly comfortable and lovely if only a little care on the details were taken. If the owner could make updates every month or even quarterly, I would consider staying here again. As it is now, I would not recommend this place.
I recently booked the Jade House for nine girls. Overall, we were extremely disappointed in this house and would not recommend this house if you are coming here with a large group, especially for the price!
The water pressure in the downstairs portion of the house was horrendous. All four girls that stayed downstairs complained about the lack of water pressure.
If you want a warm shower, in either the upstairs or downstairs, you will need to be the first person to shower. In a house that accommodates a large group, there should be a big enough hot water heater to ensure everyone has a hot shower. Everyone, but the first person who showered each day complained about their lukewarm or cold shower.
The four girls that stayed downstairs complained about cobwebs, bugs and general uncleanliness in the downstairs.
Each of us only had one towel to use for the entire 4 day stay.
We literally used all the trash bags they had in the house. Because, you are expected to clean the house and leave it exactly like you found it. Therefore, you would think there would be enough trash bags to ensure all the trash gets taken out. We stayed Friday through Monday and the trash bins were overflowing with trash. If a house is going to accommodate such a large group, there needs to be enough trash bins to accommodate everyone’s trash. There was only 2 small trash cans for trash, not enough room to handle our trash for the 4 days.
Kitchen was also lacking utensils and dishtowels. The refrigerator upstairs was on the small side.
And lastly, our biggest complaint. DO NOT BE OUTSIDE AFTER 10:00 pm!!! For a vacation rental that accommodates such a large group, for there to be NO noise after 10:00 pm is ridiculous. I repeat, do not stay here with a large group. We were a group of 30 year olds enjoying a night in the hot tub, when the property manager entered our back yard and scared all of us girls. He informed us that neighbors were complaining about our noise level, but refused to tell us which neighbors were complaining. The house to the north of ours was empty, so we weren’t “disturbing them.” We thought it was extremely unsettling for a man to enter our closed back yard to tell us to be quiet.
The upstairs was exactly liked it looked in the pictures, super cute.
The upstairs queen bed closest to the bathrooms was super comfortable.
Checking in was super easy, since I was given a door code to enter the house.
I will definitely verify that the house is great. The space is very accommodating to hang out, both inside and outside and the two unit set up works really well for people on different schedules. Accessibility between units is only through the back patio / stairs area. 3 bedrooms upstairs (two queen beds, two twin beds) and 1 & 1/2 bathrooms (no master suite with bathroom). A lovely kitchen / living area and deck, but small fridge - good thing there's another fridge in the kitchen downstairs! The downstairs set up is a little weird, you have to go through a bedroom with a queen bed to get to another bedroom with 2 twin beds. I suppose that's fine for a family. And one more bathroom downstairs.
The house is really right on the river with a little public beach area, which is the best part. I'm tempted to give 5 stars just for that. Weekdays it's pretty empty, weekends it gets crowded. Water pressure in the showers was incredible. Having a hot tub to go in was also really key. The grill works really well. And house comes with things you'd want like innertubes, a kayak and beach chairs. Bring paper towels and toilet paper.
A few minor notes: sound travels really well in the house, for example doors are loud as they open and close, you can hear it anywhere in the house. Everything you read about quiet time is indeed true. We got a noise complaint call almost immediately after 10pm on Friday night, however, we were inside cooking while the house next door had a party with a bunch of people outside on the patio with music playing at a medium level, so the call was actually for them. The dishwasher doesn't work great, which wasn't a big deal except that most of the dishes were dirty when we got to the house so we had to rewash them all (like 5 noodles and red sauce stuck on a plate dirty).
Overall I loved Jade House and I'd totally recommend it. We were a group of ten 30-somethings with some extra day people (you pay extra for day guests). It's lovely and everyone had a great time.
We booked the Jade House for a group of 9 for my grandmother's 70th birthday celebration from July 20-27th, 2011. The house is absolutely beautiful and the access to the river is wonderful! Our disappointment came with the amenities offered and the requirements of the rental agency. With 9 ladies for 7 days, the supplies were very limited. For example: we were only given 1 towel for each person, requiring us to wash towels daily. The towels were low quality and small which made it even more difficult. We were only provided 2 rolls of toilet paper per bathroom for the whole week. 1 roll of paper towels per kitchen for the week. As well as only 1 or 2 dishrags. I don't mean to sound picky, and let me add that this is probably my 15th time renting a vacation home through VRBO with this review being my 1st negative. It's just for the price we paid, and the rental agreement showing we have 9 ladies for 7 days, a few of these basics would of been expected.
Our other biggest issue was the rental requirements. The contract clearly says quiet time after 10pm. Before 10pm, we all came inside the house, closed the doors and windows and played a game of cards. at 11:00pm we received a call from management saying the neighbors complained we were too loud. The house next door is only a few feet away on both sides, and the floors in the house are wood with no rugs or curtains to muffle sound. We were merely talking with no music, no loud noise or anything you would expect when getting complaints. We received 3 more calls throughout our stay for the week of complaints. To say we were disappointed and our stay was hindered because of this is an understatement. For a rental house that sleeps 10 and expects visitors on vacation, the expectations of SILENCE after 10pm are ridiculous.
One more big issue - trash. Okay so check in day is Wednesday, the trash comes on Thursday. After only being in the house 1 day we did not take the trash out we barely had anything to remove. Of course though a week later on check out, we had a week's worth of trash (with only 1 trash can) out in the trash area. I received an extra $45 charge for having excessive trash that wouldn't fit into the can. I understand excessive but this is not excessive for 9 people for 7 days.
Overall - the house is beautiful, but if you are coming with a big group to have a good time, I would not recommend this rental.
