  • Great, but missing the attention to detail

    "This was a great house with a functional layout, decent kitchen and a wonderful views of the river and redwoods. When I look for rental houses, I always try to find ones that are cozy and comfortable without seeming super "lived-in". You don't want to see someone's toothbrush on the sink, family photos everywhere or a kid-themed room. That said, I felt like this house went a little too far in the direction of not lived in. It lacked the attention to detail that makes a home inviting--the beds are in mostly empty bedrooms on plain metal frames, there's no art on the walls downstairs, no curtain on the upstairs bathroom, the pillows and comforters were all synthetic fill, the bottom cushions on the two small couches slide off when you sit etc. With just a few small changes this whole house could be transformed from functional and fine to inviting and amazing: with some bedroom furniture, better bedding and pillows, and some more and better seating in the living area (a sectional would be lovely!), you'd have the perfect russian river getaway. A few other things to note: 1) Heat distribution was an issue for us with only one thermostat--we were here in December so it would get uncomfortably warm in the living room upstairs and the bedrooms would be chilly downstairs. We had our 4 month old with us and had to rearrange where everyone was sleeping the second night to put her upstairs where it was warm enough for her. I imagine this wouldn't be an issue in other seasons where it would be warm enough to open the french doors out to the beautiful deck. 2) if you want to light a fire, you need to buy those duraflame logs--you can get them at the safeway in downtown guerneville, but the house does not provide them. 3) the property manager and owner were both responsive and helpful. We had some issues with the water heater and they were very prompt in answering the phone and helping us troubleshoot. Overall, we had a wonderful stay here and the house worked out well. With just a few adjustments, this house could easily be a five-star getaway."
