About Russian River Vacation Homes
We are Russian River Vacation Homes, a part of D&G Equity Management, Inc., a family owned and locally owned/operated property management company. Our Story: In 1980, D&G founders and owners Michael and Patty saw a need in the area for habitable, affordable housing. At that time, many of the little cabins along the Russian River, originally built as summer cabins, were unsuitable for year-round occupancy. D&G assisted property owners with fixing up and renting their cabins. As the largest property management company in western Sonoma County, D&G Equity Management continues to be a staple in the Russian River community. Russian River Vacation Homes is an off-shoot of D&G. One fine day in 1985, Michael's client, Bob, asked "Hey Mike, can you rent my cabin out just for the week or weekend instead of by the month?" Michael said "Sure!" and Russian River Vacation Homes was born. As renting vacation rentals became more popular, Russian River Vacation Homes grew into a full-time business with its own office. Today, Russian River Vacation Homes professionally manages over 60 high-quality vacation rentals. We strive to make each and every stay the best one ever. If you have any questions or concerns about reserving or staying with us, please don't hesitate to contact us! We are here to help.
Why Russian River Vacation Homes chose Guerneville
Guerneville is the largest town on the Russian River, and has a variety of excellent restaurants and shopping. There are many wineries within 15-20 minutes. Guerneville is also home to the amazing Armstrong Woods, and it's just a quick drive out to the coast! Guerneville is a fun and free spirited town that makes for a great getaway!
What makes this House unique
Why we love Above and Beyond!- Above and Beyond is a dream! Who wouldn't want their own house among the redwood trees with a wood burning fireplace and hot tub?! Above and Beyond is just 1 mile from downtown Guerneville, and a short walk to the Russian River. It's the perfect cozy Russian River getaway!
It’s much smaller than it looks in photos. Stairs are more uneven and difficult than perceived.
Renting was easy. Not sure why we were requested to clean upon leaving when we paid cleaning fees.
And thanks for leaving a reveiw of Above & Beyond! I'm happy to respond to your questions/comments. The only cleaning we ask of guests is to do their dishes (or at least start the dishwasher before leaving), take the trash out to the cans at the road, and tidy up any spills or messes that happen during the stay. There are notes that guests are welcome to start a load of towels, but that it's not required. This is especially helpful when there are hot tub towels and the next guest is arriving in 4 hours - again, not required but the cleaners are very grateful! The cleaning fee covers the time to turn over all the linens and towels and sanitize the house for the next guests. And we are proud to pay a fair and living wage to cleaners and all other vendors that come into the homes we manage.
Above & Beyond is a charming house! We try to give guests a very accurate description, floorplans, and photos during the booking process. The house is approx. 870 square feet and there are 54 steps from the parking area to the house - both are in the listing. I was at the house recently and went up and down the stairs a few times (that happens when you forget something in the car!) and don't remember any uneven steps, so I'd love to hear specifics. There are some landings towards the top to take a breather, but the first section from the parking area is a straight shot.
I hope this helps anyone looking at the listing! Feel free to read all the reviews or contact us with questions - we want you to find the right house for your stay!
Megan @ Russian River Vacation Homes
Beautiful, tranquil, So peaceful and healing to be here.
we absolutely adored staying here. The home and amenities exceeded our hopes and expectations! All of us agreed we have never slept better in our lives. There is a healing energy to these amazing trees, and to the home overall.
One small suggestion i offer is to get a small paring knife for cheese.
We will definitely be back. Thank you so much.
In the Trees!
Above and Beyond was a great place to stay; very comfortable with all the amenities...
Only issues were the small parking spaces on the road in front (we had a pickup truck!)
and the 55 stairs to reach the house. We had our 80 year old mom with us who is not as mobile as she used to be! Other than that, it was great!
Would stay again!
