Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We live in San Francisco since 1993. Started renting in the Sonoma, Russian River area different vacation properties in mid 1990s to spend summer time with our kids on the river. Exploring this area (Summerhome Park/Forestville/Guernville) during summer vacations we just felt in love with it. We've got this property from foreclosure (it took 8 months to get it!) in 2010 and finish renovating in 2013. Now we would like to share it with other people. Our favorite travel destination in US - Sonoma County and Amsterdam in the Old World. Latest visit to Amsterdam - renovated Van Gogh Museum was a killer, must see. Favorite food - good cheese accompanied with a good wine, you can't beat Sonoma on this one.

Why the Owner Chose Forestville, CA, USA:
Property completely updated/upgraded since: all bathrooms are new as well as whole lower level. Property located among magic redwoods on the bottom of the Ice Box Canyon - 150 feet from Russian river. We have our private beach located on 2 separate parcels and can enjoy swimming/boating on the river during Spring - Fall time (from April- until November). A lot of activities around: wine tasting of the World Class Sonoma County wineries, Korbel just across the river. See more wineries in my VRBO Guest book - http://bit.ly/1qisyRk Night-life, restaurants in Guerneville within 10 min driving. We also love to shop at various antique stores in Healdsbourg and Sebastopol within 15-20 min of driving.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
It not usual rental property, this is our family and friends vacation home. We enjoy it all the time we are able to spend there, the rest time we share it with our guests and we are making sure they are getting the most comfort and service for their money. The Retreat is located among stunning redwood trees that naturally shade the decks for comfortable outdoor dining and is surrounded by a beautiful fence crafted in Japanese traditions, that gives it ultimate privacy. 1/2 acre land with private beach on Russian River shore. The weather is generally sunny and beautiful from April through October, yet as our property is also only 35 minutes from the Pacific Ocean, the cooler marine air nearby keeps the summer days from getting too hot. Night time temperatures are cool and refreshing.
