La Rive Gauche is a charming family home nestled among the redwoods and overlooking the Russian River.
This cozy and rustic home features warm rich colors, wood floors, woodstove and country charm. Two sliding glass doors from the living room open onto a sunny deck with river views. The deck features a 4 person hot tub, redwood furniture and a charcoal barbecue. A flight of stairs leads to a seasonal vegetable garden and fenced yard with outdoor furniture. From the yard, 40 steps lead down the riverbank to a seasonal deep water dock and 3 kayaks (available mid-May through mid-September depending on river conditions). A great home for families in a quiet, residential neighborhood!
With 4 bedrooms and 3 baths, this home comfortably sleeps 8 guests. On the main floor, you'll find a full bath and 3 bedrooms (1 King and 2 sets of Twins). On the second floor is a master suite and full bath with lovely river views. Downstairs has a separate garden entrance and offers a game room with air hockey and a full bathroom (great for rinsing off after a swim). The well-equipped kitchen has a large refrigerator, granite countertops, garbage disposal, electric oven, gas cooktop, work island, plenty of counter space and a laundry room with a front-loading washer and dryer. No dishwasher.
Centrally located in Monte Rio, La Rive Gauche is within walking distance to many local attractions, including the Monte Rio public beach, Rio Theater, Bartlett's grocery, restaurants, bars and shops. Jenner by the Sea, Northwood Golf Course, Armstrong Woods and many Russian River wineries are just a short drive away. Explore the river by kayak, go fishing in the river, feed the ducks from the dock, or watch for river otters, turtles, ospreys and herons. The garden is for guests to enjoy, so feel free to pick some blackberries for breakfast, vegetables for dinner or apples for a pie!
Know Before You Book:
Damage Waiver: The non-refundable damage waiver included in the reservation charges replaces a standard security deposit. The damage waiver covers unintentional damages to real or personal property of the rental unit that occur during your stay. The policy will pay a maximum benefit of $3000.00. Any damages that exceed $3,000.00 will be charged to the guest directly. The damage waiver plan does not cover replacement of missing items, additional housekeeping charges, intentional damage or gross negligence, or damages resulting from a violation of the rules outlined in the Russian River Vacation Homes guest agreement. To ensure that you are not charged for any damages, you are responsible for reporting any accidental damages to Russian River Vacation Homes in a timely manner.
*PLEASE NOTE* HomeAway offers a damage protection fee during the online check-out process. This is different than the waiver that we offer and costs more for less coverage. DO NOT select the damage insurance offered at checkout.
Maximum Occupancy and Quiet Hours: The maximum occupancy at La Rive Gauche is 8. Quiet hours are from 10:00 p.m. until 7:00 a.m. Outdoor amplified sound is prohibited at any time.
Parking: There is off-street parking for 2 cars in a narrow driveway and carport. Two small cars (or one larger vehicle) can park directly in front of the house. Additional street parking is available on a first-come first-served basis around the corner from the house. RVs, trailers and campers are prohibited, per the Sonoma County Vacation Rental Ordinance.
Bed Sizes: Master bedroom: Queen bed; Second bedroom: King bed; Third bedroom: 2 Twin beds; Fourth Bedroom: 2 Twin beds
Heat Source: Central heat, woodstove (no firewood or kindling provided).
Yard: The lower part of the yard is fully fenced for dogs. Well-behaved dogs and owners are welcome, provided that owners pick up after their pets.
Docks and beaches are seasonal only and available from mid-June to mid-September providing the summer dams are in. Canoes, kayaks, paddleboats and rowboats that are provided in some of our homes are also available from mid-June to mid-September only. The river is usually too swift for boating in the winter and many docks and beaches are under water until late spring.
Standard amenities not included: The kitchen does not have a dishwasher.
