Riviera Retreat is sure to wow guests with its impressive list of amenities and superior riverfront location.
This architecturally unique vacation home is located on the Russian River with private seasonal dock and a rooftop deck, only a mile from the town of Guerneville, and a short drive from top Sonoma wineries, the coastline, Armstrong Redwoods, hiking trails and the nearby towns of Monte Rio and Forestville. The house boasts stunning river views that can be enjoyed from most rooms and all three levels of decks, providing the perfect home base for a truly memorable stay.
Riviera Retreat Interior: The open floor plan kitchen, living and dining area is well-appointed. Large floor-to-ceiling windows in the living room showcase the beauty of the area. A reclaimed wood dining table made by local artisans, with stylish seating for six plus bar stool seating for four, and all items needed for cooking, dining and relaxing are provided. Guests will enjoy the fireplace, 50-inch flat screen Cable TV with AppleTV and DVD player, wireless internet, wireless streaming music throughout the house from your own device or the in-house iPad, and enjoy the river view from the bar side deck, equipped with a gas BBQ located just off the dining area. The two bedrooms, one with a king bed and the other with a queen bed, and one bathroom, with many updates including a new tile shower and new tile floor, are located on the same level. Each bedroom has its own flat screen Cable TV with DVD player. A queen size sofa bed is also available in the living room. The newly built second full bathroom with tile shower, is located one half-level down from the main level and is accessed using exterior covered stairs, providing privacy and convenient access from the ground level deck. New artwork is also featured throughout the house.
Riviera Retreat Exterior: The outdoor living areas make Riviera Retreat truly distinctive. The rooftop deck, accessed via an interior stairway from the main living level, is a place of serenity, privacy and enjoyment and may indeed be the centerpiece of your relaxing Sonoma vacation. In addition to being the location of both a hot tub and a cedar sauna, this deck envelops you with privacy, bathes you in sunlight and offers river and redwood skyline views. It is also appointed with furniture for outdoor lounging and dining and an outdoor shower. Shade is provided. If you want to be alone with your book, there are two more beautiful riverside decks on both the main level and the ground level, with more seating and full shade on the ground level. Stairs from the lower decks lead to a seasonal private dock with ladder. When in season, a paddle boat and two single kayaks are provided.
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.

The maximum occupancy at Riviera Retreat is 4. Quiet hours are from 10:00 p.m. until 7:00 a.m. Outdoor amplified sound is prohibited at any time.

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.
