Greetings! We are Kevin and Sophia O’Donnell and we are currently residing abroad as US Diplomats. Kevin is a Bay Area native and this is our Russian River dream home. We love to visit for its peace, tranquillity, and convenience to wineries, California’s many natural wonders, and our extended family in San Francisco. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do. If you are planning to travel to Panama, India, Colombia, Mexico, Africa and Australia we have lived there and can give you some background.

Perfect family home
This was by far the best rental we’ve had. Toys unlimited and thoughtful touches throughout. They had a play pen, bed railing, books, and toys to play at the river from kayaks to paddle boards! Kitchen was well equipped and the owners were super nice.
Bring your coffee pot! Perhaps better suited for late Spring and Summer and 6 people
The interior of the home was nice and well taken care of. Many normal accommodations like pots and pans, books to read, plenty of board games... normal household items. The home was comfortable overall - great beds, clean, and spacious enough for a small group of people. Had a small gathering of friends over... 8 people. The detail page mentions the home sleeps 8. It does not. It sleeps 6; 7 at most. There are 3 beds and 1 couch (not a pull out) somewhat suitable for sleeping. There was as sleeping bag in the closet, perhaps that was the 8th spot for sleeping. So one of our friends got to sleep on the floor.
Small things about this home made it unworthy of a return visit and a little annoying: No coffee pot to make coffee in the morning (there is a coffee maker with no coffee pot); the hot tub was dirty and had no instructions on use that we could find; there were only 2 towels per room and only hand towels in the bathrooms - would have been great if there were more for use of the hot tub (or river if it was summer); only a few extra blankets lying around the home. This last one - while it was a winter stay I was still somewhat surprised by the condition of the exterior... the backyard was really overgrown, any outdoor furniture was completely covered in leaves and mud or dirt, and the underside of the house had all sorts of things strewn everywhere. There are no pictures of the exterior for a reason. Additionally half of the photos currently on the website are old photos.. furniture, exterior, and deck are different now.
It was a comfortable stay but not convenient or worth the money in our opinion. Will not be returning.
Thank you for your feedback
I changed the VRBO number of guest from 8 to 6 one year ago when I removed the pull out Sofa bed it was changed on my Dashboard but not on the VRBO Website, I will contact VRBO on why it was not changed. I will buy a new coffee machine and pot as I was not aware of it not having a pot. The Spa Technician lives next door and he usually cleans once a week, please in the future contact the owner on that type of problem as we usually can arrange a 10 minute visit to fix that problem. Thank you for the notice of the Garden I called our Gardener and his daughter told me he left for a death in the family unfortunately no notice to me. I am sorry you were disappointed with some of the items on the property, it is such a special place with an amazing atmosphere we want everyone to have a stellar stay at our house. Thank you.
Wonderful house to gather with friends and family!
The house was clean, well stocked, and in a perfect location to enjoy both wine country and the coast. I was pleasantly surprised; it's much nicer than it appears in the pictures.
Very chill spot on the river
The house was clean inside and the dock and hot tub were definitely a bonus....coffee and mimosas out on the deck overlooking the river in the mornings were very cool. Would come back again!
I love The Russian River!
It was perfection! My family and I enjoyed every moment of our stay. It was comfortable, beautiful and peaceful
