About Irina Itsekson

We are a family of kids, adults who are kids at heart, and dogs. We love to explore new places, try new and exotic food, do adventurous activities, play games, and have fun. We wanted a place where there was a variety of stuff to do and was an awesome place to stay. We built this place with all those needs in mind. There is something for everyone to do and see, and the place is super comfy, well stocked with everything we could think of. We love it there and hope you will too!

Irina Itsekson purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Irina Itsekson chose Russian River

We wanted the kind of location where we could walk to places and where our kids could hang out with other kids without us worrying for their safety. We looked at a bunch of places in the Russian River area, but all were on big roads and not within walking distance of anyplace. Rio Nido is the kind of place that reminds one of how it used to be - kids meeting other kids and disappearing for half the day, and we don't worry about them. We usually find them playing pool at the restaurant or swimming (lifeguard on duty), or playing tennis or miniature golf with other kids. And its all a short walk away. That's why we love this place.

What makes this apartment unique

We love the towering Redwoods above us, it might be 100 degrees by the pool, but our place is nice and cool. The yard has a really cool stone hearth-fireplace, probably from the days of the original Russians that settled there. Great place to make smores!

Perfect Russian River Getaway

  • 5 of 5

First of all, Irina (the owner) was super helpful and everything was what I expected.

My favorite thing was hot tub and 4-6 people can fit comfortably.

The location was very close to Guerneville downtown, Armstrong woods and wineries.

Also there is a cute bar close by and they had a live band, so it was perfect birthday celebration place.

We went to early November and Armstrong Woods was very beautiful with colorful trees.

Perfect for kids and group of families. Many bunk bed, so everyone chose their favorite beds.

We will definitely go back there again for summer time.

Perfect - can't wait to come back!

  • 5 of 5

I am so glad to have found this lovely, dog friendly spot!! The apartment was clean, comfortable and well-maintained, the photos definitely do it justice. I felt SO welcome, from the coffee in the cupboard, to the dog bed out back, to the Safeway Club card (to get store discounts) in the info binder. When the river is higher there's a beach close enough to walk to, other nice spots are a short drive away. The blue-green algae scare was in full swing when I went, but Jenner is only about a 30 min drive away so I took the dog to the coastal beach instead (Blind Beach is on-leash dog friendly), we even snuck over to the back side of Goat Rock beach (technically no dogs) where we got the calm of the river but enough salt water that I wasn't worried about the algae. Having a hot tub to come back to was AWESOME, and there's a pub down the road - walking distance - if there's a night you don't want to worry about who'll be the designated driver. Only warning on the area is that a lot of Yelp listings list when the bar/pub part of local places shut down, but the kitchens shut down earlier. Plan accordingly.

All this space and all these perks for less than a hotel room, with much more privacy. I really can't wait to come back.

P.S. Irena was great, very communicative and even looked into beaches where my dog would be welcome.

Redwoods hideaway

  • 4 of 5

Cute hideaway in among the redwoods. Well equipped, and the Murphy bed was a treat. Bring your own water and ice, as the water is very iron rich. And a note to Irina: new pillows for the beds would be appreciated - the pillows on the beds are very flat, and we needed to use pillows from the couch to keep our heads elevated.

The owner is very helpful and very sweet. The house is in a great location and came equipped with everything you would need for a getaway. We had a girl's trip and had plenty of space and privacy. I would highly recommend to anybody going to the area. Very relaxing and just a perfect vacation. Thank you!!!

Nice inside. Noisy and unpleasant around.

  • 3 of 5

This was a nice rental, however, we had trouble with the amount of noise (particularly loudly screaming children at all daylight hours and dogs barking-starting at 7am). We also did not enjoy the downstair's neighbors chain smoking making it unpleasant to be anywhere outside. The bed and furniture were comfortable. It was quite pleasant inside the apartment (minus the noise outside), but the deck and hot tub were never used as the surroundings were very uninviting. Dog poo around the property is also an issue. Overall not a great stay but okay if you don't mind noise, smoke, dogs.

Owner's Response: I am very sorry the surroundings were unpleasant, I have no way of controlling the behavior of other people, however, when the smoking guests requested another stay I told them about your complaint and they will not be staying at our property again. I hope you understand and thanks.
