About the Property

The main living space also features a large Flat-screen TV with Comcast cable and a DVD/Blu-Ray player. At the end of the short hallway is the roomy, bright master bedroom with an attached bathroom. Also off the hallway, but closer to the living area, is the second bedroom with a twin bed and twin trundle bed. The second bedroom, with a small desk and sitting area, does double duty as a pleasant office space. The third door off the hallway opens to the second full bathroom. Both bathrooms have combined tub/showers.

The hot tub, tucked away at the far end of the patio, is surrounded on 3 sides by a privacy screen. The back portion of the yard is shaded and planted with greenery. For the dogs in your family, a dog run with kennels is located on along the northern side of house. The large, sandy, dog-friendly neighborhood beach is a short walk away.

CHOOSING OPTIONAL FEES: If you book through VRBO/HomeAway, both Damage Protection options and the Optional Travel Insurance show in the rates. State your preference in the comments section of the reservation and we will adjust the rates before processing payment. If no preference is stated, we will contact you prior to processing payment.

Up & Away is a short walk (.1 mile or a couple short blocks) from the Patterson Point Preserve, a beautiful 2 acre bend in the river managed by the Friends of Villa Grande. Guests at Up & Away are welcome to enjoy this dog-friendly space with a large sandy beach, swimming area and fishing hole. Follow the path through redwood and other native trees down to the river and you may see native wildflowers (many are marked for our education and identification), active habitat restoration, and wildlife! This is an ideal spot for birding and you may even see a native mink (nearly hunted to local extinction by the Russians in the 1800's) or otters playing in the river. Patterson Point is a local gem and available to visitors year round.

West Sonoma County is also rich in wineries, breweries and food production. Between the once world renowned Gravenstien apple orchards of Sebastopol, local berry farms, meat producers, honey, ice cream, pies, and fresh fish, you can't go wrong when eating "local." This abundance varies with the seasons and can be enjoyed at local farmer's markets (some year round), shops specializing in local produce and goods, and an agriculture community encouraging farm visits (check out farmtrails.org).

 

Manager info

Russian River Vacation Homes

About: Russian River Vacation Homes is proud to manage Up & Away on behalf of the owners. Russian River Vacation Homes, a part of D&G Equity Management, Inc., is 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 Villa Grande, Monte Rio, CA, USA:
Up & Away is in the historic neighborhood of Villa Grande and it's beautiful. You can feel the history of the area, but the home has the modern touches to put guests at ease. It's especially fantastic for folks with dogs or who want to be near the river but not right on it - like families with young kids. We love sharing this home with guests. Here's a note from the homeowners: "We’ve been vacationing in the Bodega Bay/Russian River area for 20+ years, and have enjoyed every moment of every visit. It is our hope that your stay here will inspire you to visit the Russian River Resort area again in the future, and perhaps a return stay at Up & Away."

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The home is a hop, skip and a jump to Patterson Point Preserve, a true local gem!
