Our families have been vacationing at 'The River' since Penny's grandfather rode the train from San Francisco to his 'cabin in the redwoods' in the late 1800's. Over the past 100+ years, 5 generations of our families have spent their vacations and holiday weekends here!

In 2007, Penny & Mike purchased and remodeled 'Pearadise' to provide the most comfortable and fun year round vacation retreat for our expanding family.

We use the income from VRBO (since January 2009) to maintain and improve the property. Our latest project was to build in a fireplace and mantel (to restore the one that was removed when the house was raised by the previous owners) and replace the carpet with a 'green' product (made from recycled plastic pop bottles.) Our goal is to provide a clean, green, bright, comfortable and 'turn key' vacation home for our family and yours.

We love being ON the river: water sports (swimming, kayaking, canoeing, sailing, etc.), visiting friends on the river, exploring, fishing, and observing (people during the warm Summer and spectacular nature during the pleasant Spring and Fall and even in the chilly Winter!)

We also enjoy BBQing and entertaining on our spectacular deck, cooking in the great kitchen and bar areas, gaming and movies in the downstairs 'game room' and having lots of room for folks to 'do their own thing' too.

Local activities that we like to do include: hiking and biking (especially in Armstrong Woods and around Austin Creek), eating in the many good local restaurants, wine tasting treks, driving out to the ocean (Jenner is only 10 miles away), shopping in the funky town of Guerneville, movies at the Rio Theater, Pee Wee golf and many annual events and festivals (Jazz & Blues festivals, Civil War Days, Stumptown Parade, July 4th fireworks, Bohemian Show, Sonoma County Fair, Apple Fair, Vine Man triathlons, RR rodeo, and Wine Road activities to name just a few.)

Fabulous Holiday Gift: A Weekend on the Russian River

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 14, 2014
  • Stayed: Dec 2013
My family of 10 had a wonderful weekend in Pearadise. The house has spacious rooms, a well-stocked kitchen, and very enjoyable places to sit back and relax with large and small groups of people. It’s also convenient to downtown Guerneville and steps away from the Russian River. And even if we couldn’t use the kayaks, canoes, and bbq during this December visit, we had a lot of fun shopping and dining in Healdsburg, touring wineries, walking in the redwoods, and driving out to the beach on a sunny day in Jenner. I must say, though, the house is definitely made for summer. There is no central heat on the first floor, only portable heaters, and it went into the 20s at night. We also had some hot water issues in one of the showers upstairs. We managed and still had a lovely time.

Pearadise was exactly that. We had a wonderful time for my Mom's 84th Birthday. We rent vacation homes often and I've yet to find a place as well stocked as Pearadise. Every thing was great. Thanks Penny and Mike! We look forward to next year.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much, Wade. We're so glad that you and your extended family appreciated the comforts and details of Pearadise and had such a great time.
It was really our pleasure!
Hope to see you next year.

Pearadises is paradise

Pearadise was a wonderful place for our family to stay for our summer vacation. The property was just as advertised - maybe even better. It was immaculate and there was a great supply of kitchen and barbeque equipment. The bath towel service is a good touch because the towels were luxurious and spotless. The river provided a great recreation opportunity for all levels of swimming skill. We spent a lot of time in and on the river. The surroundings were tranquil, serene and lush. The canoe and kayak were put to good use. It was a great location on the river. We walked to Guerneville to eat and play mini golf . We visited the redwoods in Armstrong Park. Korbell Champagne Cellar was very close by and the tour was free. A real highlight was going to Safari West north of Santa Rosa. Throughout the process the owners were helpful and responsive. We really could not ask for a better experience. We highly recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Mary! And thanks for the tips on fun things to do that are close by. (I'm glad to know that the Korbel winery/gardens tour is still free ...). Hope your family comes back again next year! Penny

Family Vacation!

Pearadise was wonderful! The house had a very homey inviting feel. It was bigger than we imagined. We all fit comfortably. The kitchen was fantastic and fully stocked with many cooking essentials. We ate all of our meals together at the house. The dining area both inside and out was big enough for all of us to sit together and enjoy our meals.
The house is in a great location. We ran or biked to The Armstrong Redwoods several times. We utilized the dock, canoe and kayak daily. The house was so amazing that we stayed there a majority of the time. We planned on going to wineries and the beach, but Pearadise allowed us to have such a fun, relaxing atmosphere to enjoy each other’s company that we just stayed there.
Penny and Mike mentioned in every correspondence that if we needed anything they were a phone call away. We never had to call, everything went seamlessly.

My entire family agreed that Pearadise was wonderful; no one wanted to go back to reality.

Annual Family Vacation

  • Stayed: Aug 2012
Our stay in Pearadise was a pleasure from the start. The house is comfortable and well equipped. Our grandchildren, ranging in age from 11 to 20, all swimmers, said it was the best house we've stayed in yet.
They spent many hours down on the dock and in the water. Having the dock in our backyard was a big
attraction and the family didn't feel the need to go anywhere else. They did avail themselves of the Sonoma Canopy Tours zip line on the last day and had a great time. Oh yes, all the birdlife around was a big plus too. My husband is an avid birdwatcher and he has "infected" the rest of the family! We highly recommend a stay in Pearadise.
