Beautiful, secluded, near-perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

Well-appointed, well-maintained, beautiful views, comfortable. The house is spacious, with plenty of opportunities for socializing as well as privacy and quiet. The art - and there's a lot of it - had me wondering what to expect, but the collection suits the place perfectly; unusual, eclectic, high-end, stimulating and pleasing, and certainly not overpowering or fussy. I wish I had taken more photos - but that's just another reason to return soon!

Chic Summer Style

  • 5 of 5

We have rented with VRBO for the last 15 years of different destinations, but this property has been the best of best. We will coming back at every opportunity, it's very obvious the present owners loved and take magnificent care of this home, just let me know when they will be ready to sell this property I would like to be the first on line with an offer.

Mid Winter Stay

  • 5 of 5

I'm a VRBO property owner myself, Lake Tahoe, CA, and Lake Havasu, AZ, so I always make it a point to stay at VRBO properties when I travel. This property was absolutely spectacular with a great location for our Mid-Winter Sonoma Wine Country trip. The VRBO photos are exactly what your get, perfect views, very comfortable inside and out, with all the amenities. The architecture was top end , the art and furnishings nicely done, and the entire house put together very professionally. We had three couples on this trip so the 3BR/3BA layout was perfect. No one ever felt closed in or crowded. Of course we didn't get to use the pool during Mid-Winter but we enjoyed the BBQ, the Spa, the decks, and all the other perks of the property, all of which worked perfectly! I can't wait to go back in the Summer and try that pool!

Superb Property - Beautifully maintained, spectacularly designed, gorgeously appointed

  • 5 of 5

Every year, my family travels around the world and stays in a private luxury rental – usually one we have found on VRBO. Last year was Chania, Greece, the year before, Captain Cook Hawaii, before that, the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. Our standards are very high- and we are hard to please. As nice as all the homes are that we’ve stayed in (and there have been some spectacular pieces of property), Palazzo Marzino exceeds all of them by miles.

It is the first property we have ever stayed in to which we will return – and we can’t wait for that day.

The pool was perfection – the temp was exactly right – you just never want to get out of the water. The pool furnishings were above and beyond – truly exceptional, right down to the floats: no cheap inflatable rafts, these were the thick blue foam-rubber ones, with no cracks or wear.

The kitchen was properly equipped with LOTS of dishes, pans, and gadgetry (although a food processor would have been nice, but that’s a very minor quibble).

The views from the main floor were positively stunning . It’s hard to measure these kinds of things, but we’ve been in some pretty exotic locales – and this view was by far the most enchanting. We never tired of looking out on that expanse of redwood covered mountains, with the Russian River placidly flowing below.

There are ALWAYS problems with these houses. It’s their nature – they have lots of complicated systems everywhere you look. The big question is how the management company and their vendors resolve the problems as they crop up. We had one problem – and it was handled expediently, efficiently, and expertly. The management company even gave us a $75 credit for the inconvenience (which was totally unnecessary).

We’d like to suggest adding a way to attach an external music source (smart phone, iPod, etc) to the technology suite. Speaking of – the internet speed was a reliable 40Mbps – way more than you need for streaming HD movies (most TVs were HDMI equipped).

As I said – we can’t wait to return. We’re in total withdrawal and already figuring out when the next trip will be.

Beautiful rental---poorly maintained and managed!

  • 4 of 5

Upon entering the home we made contact with the cleaning personnel. We were told the refrigerator was not working properly and that this had been a previous problem. After a call to the management company, a repairman came, could not fix the refrig. and subsequently brought in a temporary mini fridge. We went to town and bought ice and coolers to keep food for six people cool overnight. We then reset breakers and the refrig. worked the next day.

Following check- in instructions, we checked the hot tub and it appeared to be working. We attempted to use the hot tub 2 days later and it was empty. We called the service company and they stated that they were aware that there was a leak but did not believe it was severe. The pool serviceperson came and pulled the motor and stated that it would be fixed the next day. Never heard from the service company again and we never got to use the hot tub during our entire visit.

On Saturday, the day of our arrival, we wanted to use the pool and the temp. was 74. We called the management company to advise them that the pool was not heating properly. We were told that was normal for the pool temperature. The pool service called and we advised them of the heating issue and were told someone would be there Monday to check the pool. On Monday the serviceperson discovered someone had changed the settings on the pool controls. He reset the settings and it took 4 days to increase the pool temp. to 78 degrees.(that is not normal for the bright, sunny weather that we had during our entire stay)

Considering the amount of rental charged for this property, someone should be checking to make sure that all the amenities are operating properly!!!!!!!

The property had a beautiful view and was comfortable for 6 people. The photos of the property are accurate in it's description.

If the house and it's amenities would have been properly maintained it would have been a more enjoyable visit.

Owner's Response: Thank so much you for your four star review. We are so sorry for the maintenance issues you encountered during your stay at Palazzo. We do our very best to make sure our homes are in tip top shape, but occasionally things do break down, and when that happens, we do our very best to get them fixed as quickly as possible. It is quite unfortunate that you had several of these issues occur at once during your stay. That is highly unusual, especially for this immaculate home. Past issues or not, we inspect before every arrival, and spa maintenance occurs weekly, and if we had known the refrigerator, hot tub or pool was not working properly, we would have either had it fixed or notified you of the issue. I'm a little confused about the sequence of events with the hot tub and pool, as it sounds as though the spa maintenance company was on site and in contact over a number of days. The hot tub could not be repaired during your stay, which is disappointing, and which is why you did receive a refund. The pool is solar-heated, and temperature is limited by a number of factors, including how warm the weather was in the weeks prior to your visit. It was unfortunate that a prior guest turned the solar heat system down because it can take a long time to heat back up; if the weather were warm enough, it would have heated to a higher temperature given time. We now check this regularly to make sure the problem does not recur. Palazzo is a very well-maintained property, with owners who really care that guests are happy, and we have an excellent reputation for maintaining our properties. This booking included a series of unfortunate, largely unavoidable events that we and the spa company dealt with as quickly and efficiently as possible. I encourage you to return and enjoy Palazzo, which is in great shape this season!. -Rachel, Russian River Getaways
