About the property

Treat yourself to some luxury, peace and quiet, just 3 mins walk to the river.

Enjoy the peace and quiet in our King deluxe master suite that is 3 mins walk to the river and trails. Be independent in your own space, unwind and take a long soak in the spa bath, enjoy 'eating in' using your private little kitchen, sit at the breakfast bar and enjoy the freshly roasted special blend of coffee provided by your host, or look out to the tranquil back garden from your dining room table. But most of all, get a good nights sleep on a very comfortable bed!

Superb location near the river where you can go for leisurely strolls along the river trail. The neighborhood is quiet and safe.

Be independent with your own external access, private luxury bathroom and kitchen. We have just rehabbed the kitchen with a sink, breakfast bar, plenty of counter space and everything you need to prepare your meals; a decent sized fridge you can stock up, microwave, coffee pot, small portable oven, induction cooking element with pots, utensils and crockery and glassware.

Karina is a coffee snob and used to own her own cafe in New Zealand, so roasts her own unique blend of coffee at home which guests love! Karina thinks it's the best coffee in Redding!... Come and see what you think ;)

This is a great place to stay for conference attendees/visitors to Redding and gives you the opportunity to stay in and cook some basic meals yourself rather than having to eat out all the time.

It is a 4.8 mile drive to Bethel.

There is a very comfortable Cal King bed in the room, plus an armchair that pulls out to a bed. There is also a fold out day bed in the closet for a 4th guest.

You have your own outdoor patio with chairs, comfortable Cal King bed, night stands, own private bathroom accessed through your bedroom only, small table and chairs, wifi internet, central air conditioning, off street parking outside (to the right of the garage), laundry facilities.

We love to host and enjoy getting to know our guests. We also respect your privacy and need for space. We are available to answer any local questions you may have. Karina works from home (up the other end of the house) so will be there most of the time, however, may not always be available to chat.

About Karina

Matt and Karina are an easy going couple and love getting to know new people from all over the world. Matt grew up in Pismo Beach, Southern California and loves surfing and mountain bike riding. Karina is from New Zealand and since marrying Matt in 2012 has made Redding her permanent home. Karina loves espresso coffee, healthy food, triathlons and road trips with Matt surfing :) Matt and Karina both did Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry and are now long term Bethel members.

We live at the Moonstone River Retreat House and our little family consists of Matt, Karina, our baby Ella and 'Jimmy' our adorable Jack Russell/Chihuahua cross dog who is very loveable and loves meeting new guests!

Karina purchased this studio in 2013

Why Karina chose Lake Redding

Guests rate us very well (most 5/5) and common feedback is that they love the decor and sleep very well in the comfortable cal-king bed, and, enjoy the luxurious bathroom with the double sinks and jacuzzi style bath with jets.

Of course it goes without saying, we're a friendly, easy going couple, who love meeting new people from all around the world! And, we have the cutest little dog who gives a warm welcome and cuddles to all our guests!

One guest said "We love this place as it is very restful, with little bluebirds that hang out in the tranquil back yard, and the river trail is just across the road".

We've just rehabbed the kitchen area and put in a sink, new countertops and small breakfast bar. Just another reason to stay here!

Welcoming & well-appointed

  • 5 of 5

The room is very spacious, yet cozy. Bed is comfy, chair is great for reading & watching movies. Bathroom is spa-worthy with that jetted tub, shower, fixtures, and ambiance. Kitchen has all you need especially for tea or coffee in the morning! Offerings on the TV are fun & plenty! (I don’t watch TV except in hotels/lodgings!)

Neighborhood is safe, garden is welcoming & lovely, hosts are very kind & happy to help & have guests! Jimmy is the cutest dog EVER.. I was sad I didn’t get the chance to check out the nearby hiking or take Jimmy for a walk or take much time in the jacuzzi tub- too little time.. I hope next time I visit my family this place will be available & I can enjoy all there is to offer!

Perfect place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, baby and I stayed in the River Retreat Studio for a month and loved it: Karina and Matt were the perfect hosts (there whenever we needed them, but very respectful of our privacy). it's a lovely, big space, very comfy bed and sheets and good quality towels and bath supplies, big fridge and enough space to cook a decent meal. If ever we needed anything extra (be it kitchen supplies or shop recommendations), Karina and her Family were quick to offer help. Also what's been really nice was the area the apartment is located in: a quiet residential area right next to the river and long walks along it, but also a quick car ride from all the shops (Walmart, etc).

We absolutely enjoyed our time there and wholeheartedly recommend this Studio apartment to anyone visiting Redding! :)

Comfortable Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at the River Retreat. Comfortable bed (very important to me) and bath, fully equipped kitchen and use of the laundry facilities. Loved being close to the river walk path.

comfortable value

  • 4 of 5

A very nice quiet neighborhood that encouraged us to explore the lovely town of Redding. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was large and well equipped. The owners make everything convenient even offering a BBQ, but we decided it was easier to go out these 3 nights. The full size refrigerator made picnic lunches a breeze as we checked out scenic areas of Whiskeytown waterfalls and Shasta Lake Caverns and Dam. Would love to return sometime!
