About Luis Mitter
I am an excited American, born in São Paulo, Brazil, in 1967. I moved to this country in search of peace, respect and dignity. Here, I found more drama, but I also found the freedom and respect I never had. My passion for California relies mostly on the diversity of cultures and the incredible harmony between this enormous diversity. That, combined my over 15 years experience working with Real Estate property management in San Francisco, made me a better person. My background is in journalism. Although I don't practice it anymore, I kept the skills of a great communicator. My favorite hobbies are landscaping and painting; so, you will notice that once you stay at Russian River Summer Retreat. I personally take care of our garden, which is gorgeous by the way, and 2 of my artwork are hanging on the walls of the 3rd bedroom. After years living in California, I developed another passion. I love a good wine very much. On the weekends, if I am staying at Rivendell Summer Retreat, I love to open my favorite wine while watching the sunset. The experience is incredibly pleasant. I am always exploring new wineries and Sonoma County is my favorite area for great wines. The most important thing for me if the love for life I have. Life is a gift given to us that should not be wasted or abused. Best regards! Luis

Great House in Guerneville
Beautiful new modern house with pool. Luis was very helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Beautiful home--would highly recommend!!
Two girls and I stayed in Luis' house for a weekend getaway following a work trip. The instructions on getting into the house and settled were spot on and super detailed. It made getting situated a breeze! This home is absolutely GORGEOUS. I read some of the reviews complaining about the "house rules", but the guide is all about being respectful to the property--and that's clearly why this house is in such pristine condition. Everything is clearly outlined in the house guide with instructions on how to use all the great amenities offered. I would absolutely stay here again!
Will definitely stay there again!
Luis has impeccable style and you can expect a well appointed home, with many stylish touches. The house is super clean with very nice settings. It has everything you ever need. The bathrooms are amazing and we loved the tub and shower. It is a lovely, yet stylish and contemporary, oasis in the trees. In addition, Luis is a very thorough and responsive host. Perfect perfect place for our family vacation. And when we had any questions, Luis responded within minutes. Super host! Will definitely stay there again!
Beautiful secluded home. An oasis in Sonoma County
This is a beautiful secluded home near Guerneville. Lush landscaping creates a sense of privacy while enjoying the pool, decks and hot tub. The guest information folder covers any questions you may have about the property. Guests are also encouraged to contact the owners with any questions. A window wall in the main living area opens to the upper deck creating a large space to relax and dine. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking, more so than other homes we have visited. There is also a large grill on the deck. We were surprised to find a bottle of wine and coffee beans waiting for our arrival! All baths have an adequate supply of towels and toiletries plus additional towels for the pool and hot tub. The beds and pillows are comfortable. It was a memorable weekend and we hope to return!
A beautiful home! Everything you need for a memorable and high style vacay!
This is one of the most beautiful homes I've stayed in at the Russian River. There were six adults, the house was comfortable and well laid out. Although compact, we never felt cramped and while we were out and about most days, we always wanted to get back to this lovely spot and soak up the sun, lounge by the pool and cook in the well appointed kitchen. The acordian doors open up the deck and hot tub area which is almost like a second living room with comfortable seating and shade. We used the grill which was nice and the beds and linens were top of the line. Stay here!
