The Elements was a perfect vacation rental for a group of friends! As we pulled up the long drive into a shady redwood glen, we knew our stray would be wonderful. The main house looks exactly as photographed, the grounds are superior! A lovely pea gravel patio with comfy seating around a fire pit (and sticks for roasting marshmallows), and built in barbecue , Buddha fountain and hammock appoint the grounds. The two guest houses are comfortable and complete, all clean and easy to figure out. We took a moonlight soak in the hot tub while enjoying local wine. The stars were multitudinous and the stoic redwoods enclosed us in a dramatic glen.
The kitchen had all the utensils, plates, glasses etc. that we needed to cook, and the pantry provided spices, oils and pepper towels.
It was so beautiful and luxurious, we spent a day just hanging out on the property, taking walks in the woods, and swinging in the hammock. Just 10 minutes to guerneville, the locations was very private, yet convenient to shops and activities. Excellent! We will stay again.
