Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Delightful Cabin with Yard, Spa, Dog Run, Walk to River

Up and Away is a tastefull getaway, a true Villa Grande find. Stay in this historic river community and at the same time enjoy the comforts of modern construction and amenities. The Villa Grande community has a gorgeous river beach, great location and a laid-back ambience.

Up and Away has an open floor plan. The kitchen is complete with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. The adjacent living area has a queen sofa bed and the dining area has a dining table for 4 (there is room for 2 to dine at the counter bar). All occupy an open, well-lit room with hardwood floors and high ceilings. A door off the living area opens to a lovely front porch, furnished with a bar height 2-person table and chairs and a double porch seat.

The main living space also features a large Flatscreen 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.

Up and Away has a large, fully fenced yard and patio. The patio, easily accessible through a side gate, is the sunniest spot on the property. An outdoor dining set, gas barbecue and two chaise lounges are set on the patio. It's a great place for cooking and hanging outside. 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.

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 Up And Away is 6. Quiet hours are from 10:00 p.m. until 7:00 a.m. Outdoor amplified sound is prohibited at any time.

Office Hours and Booking Information:

Our office is open from 9 am to 5 pm every day, excluding major holidays.

After making a booking and confirming their security deposit vs. damage protection preference, guests will be sent arrival instructions and a contract with our terms in detail to sign and return. You will be contacted within 24 hours of making your reservation.

No same-day reservations past 2 pm. It should not happen, but in case the system is allowing you to book for same-day arrival and it is after 2 pm, please reach out to us. If it is after 5 pm, please do not complete your reservation; no one will be available to process your reservation and prepare for your arrival.

About Russian River Vacation Homes

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 Russian River Vacation Homes chose Villa Grande

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."

What makes this house unique

The home is a hop, skip and a jump to Patterson Point Preserve, a true local gem!

Villa Grande cabin

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations were as advertised. What was nice was that the property was well equipped. No need to run to the store to buy salt!! Everything was clean and directions were very clear.

The inside of the place was great. The outside appeared not to be ready for the season.

  • 3 of 5

The inside of the place was great. The outside appeared not to be ready for the season. Furniture was covered and dirty. An electrician, landscaper and hot tub maintenance guy all came by to service the place while we were there. I feel this maintenance should have been done prior to our arrival so the place would be ready for us when we got there.

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).
