RENT A PRIVATE PARK AND WILDLIFE PRESERVE

Willits House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Family Room, Sleeping Porch, Sleeps 10+

Super Private Custom Built Home on 388 acres.

This is a one-of-a-kind vacation rental because of the level of privacy and the large piece of property that is exclusively yours to use and explore. You will have the entire property (388 acres) all to yourself to enjoy. The house is a beautiful custom built home with hardwood cherry floors, two large redwood decks, four bedrooms and two baths, a family room, living room, dining room and is in one of the most beautiful locations that you can imagine. It is like renting a park without any other people. Located in the redwood belt you can enjoy miles of trails along cascading streams and little waterfalls that run through fern covered redwood forests. Fish or swim in the pond, bike or hike along the trails. Lay out in the hot tub at night and watch the stars in the crystal clear skies. The quietness of the property is truly amazing and is like nothing you will find anywhere else.

Have an undisturbed family reunion in one of the most beautiful pieces of property that you will ever visit.

The custom built house is only a little over ten years old and until recently was our home with many homelike qualities. There is a large play set for the children and a gas barbeque for entertaining. A beautiful creek runs past the front of the house and two ponds are on the property. One of the ponds is only 100 feet from the house. There are numerous species of wildlife including hawks, owls, pond turtles, river otters, and great blue herons to name a few.

There are two decks, one is covered and faces the pond and the other faces a meadow with 250 year old oak trees. The kids can pitch a tent in the adjacent meadows and explore the forests and creeks while you lay in the hammock among the oak trees.

This rental is as close to a wilderness adventure as you can get without actually having to rough it.

Additional photos available upon request.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Art and Muaureen,

Today is Blair's birthday and I rented your home as a gift to him. We couldn't ask for anything better! No sooner did Leta leave than Blair was at the pond reeling in his first fish. That was yesterday. Want to guess where he is now, 30 hours later? At the pond! Your home and its surroundings are spectacular! Leaving is going to be difficult as we feel we've discovered paradise!

Sincerely,

The Edwards

BEAUTIFUL HOUSE AND SURROUNDINGS!

  • 5 of 5
I just spent my birthday weekend here w/ my closest friends and our kids and dogs. There were 8 adults, 4 little kiddos, and 3 tiny dogs. There was plenty of room for us all, and we even got all the adults around the dining room table for a birthday dinner. The hot tub is full-size and got super hot. It was beautiful under the stars at night, surrounded by the woods. The kids loved looking at the salamanders and turtles in the pond, and of course they loved the play structure with swings and a slide. The yard and surroundings are amazing--you feel like you've been transported as you drive the dirt road up to the house. It's like driving through a rainforest. My friends loved it, and we were all sad to leave. We plan to return, for sure.

Of note, the property photos are totally accurate and the place was clean and well-maintained. It is "off the grid", so you have to be somewhat thoughtful about electricity usage (you can't have every appliance going at the same time), but we had no problems with it. The fridge is kind of small, so just be thoughtful about how much stuff you bring, or bring an extra cooler. The stove and oven are also petite, but we managed to cook an entire ham in the oven, and we cooked a big delicious indian dinner on the stovetop, too.

A WONDERFUL PLACE

  • 5 of 5
We had such an amazing time, with lots of peaceful relaxing but also lots of hikes on the various trails. The property is stunningly beautiful. The beds are comfortable. The house/kitchen is well stocked, for example we were thrilled to find really good cast iron pans in the kitchen. Even just around the house there's lots for the kids to go off and explore on their own. We can't wait to go back and want to experience the place during different seasons. This is probably one of our all time favorite VRBO rentals.

BEAUTIFUL CHRISTMAS MEMORIES!!!!

  • 5 of 5
This is my family's first experience with using a rental home, and we couldn't have been more pleased. We have a large family with 8 children ranging from almost 5 to 14. The bedroom set up was perfect as we also had my mom travel with us and the downstairs master room was perfect for her. We personally didn't care about no cable tv, internet, and other things that we really needed a break from. Our children really enjoyed the hundreds of acres of redwood forest that kept them busy on adventures for hours and our own family time at night. We stayed for six days and highly recommend this beautiful surrounding for a real getaway. Thank you for this wonderful first rental vacation!!!

KEEP THE COMFORT, LEAVE THE THNEEDS...

  • 5 of 5
For me, this is the perfect place with all the things you need to relax and enjoy nature. This was my second stay here and a first my sister and brother-in-law. I worried they would be disappointed to not have internet access...but to the contrary, they had no problems "unplugging" for the weekend. The kids were entertained by pond turtles and the play structure. Our trip to Hopland on Saturday led to a barrage of texts from co-workers, but the world did not end for anyone! We had plans to watch one of the many great DVDs one night, but after a day of relaxing we enjoyed a lively political discussion by the fireside instead! My sister called the air porter service to check with departures and when asked to consult the internet she said, "I'm talking to you from a phone connected to the wall!" The woman said,"I'm sorry!" My sister said,"Don't be, this place is great!"

A MAGICAL PLACE

  • 5 of 5
Our group has now visited this quiet paradise for 4 years now and continues to be a remarkable place. From the time you enter the space you feel as if you are home. The hiking is wonderful, the house is beautiful and the quiet of the land is all around you. Truly a sacred space marked by both mirth and reverence. As many have said before us, we wish it was our home. We hope it continues to be our retreat. Mary
