Rio Casa Del Sol is a beautiful unique two story vacation rental. Enter through a lush two-story high atrium with a waterfall and koi pond. Listen to the soothing sound of the babbling waterfall as you cook in the well-equipped kitchen, play a game of pool in the game room, curl up by the wood burning stove, or relax on the deck taking in the redwood and river views. The upstairs offers two bedrooms each with a queen bed, and doors leading out to a balcony overlooking the front yard & golf course. The hallway nook offers a desk with wireless DSL Internet access and nationwide phone service.
The spacious kitchen, living and dining room feature open beam ceilings, skylights, and large windows with spectacular views of the redwoods and front atrium. The master bedroom has a private bathroom with a large glass shower and French doors leading out to the fenced in patio and spa. The patio has stairs leading up to a large deck overlooking the Russian River. Stairs from the deck lead directly to a shared river beach.
Rio Casa Del Sol is conveniently located walking distance to the Northwood Golf Course, Restaurant, Bar and Coffee Shop. It is a short drive to downtown Guerneville, Korbel and many Russian River Valley wineries and dining establishments. It is only a 20 minute drive to the Sonoma Coast (Jenner & Bodega Bay).

Thomas purchased this house in 2005
The home is right on the river & the golf course is right out the front door. I can stroll to the coffee shop and post office in the morning within a few minutes.
The back deck has some great views of the redwoods & river. The atrium has a way of calming you down when you first walk in. I call it the 'de-stressing chamber'. The large gold fish (cousins of Koi) always come up to greet you when it's not too cold. We love our kitchen! It has lot's of granite-top counter space. The 'open floor' design is spacious. That plus the vaulted wood beam ceilings give a sense of even greater space. There are large picture windows everywhere so your indoors with views of the outdoors & redwoods. On clear nights we bundle up & lay on the deck at night & watch the stars.
Absolutely fantastically excellent!!!!! You really should spend more time there so you can enjoy it too.........The misty fog along the river this morning and the blue heron topped off a wonderful relaxing time..delicious breakfast and all.
Thanks ever so much.
I have been renting this house for a number of years now and as always we really enjoyed our stay. The deck and viewed are lovely and the house is spacious and very comfortable. This is a unique property for the area so highly recommend that property.
Second time we stayed here and it worked out great. Grocery is close, golf course across the road and great view of the river. We showed up early and Thomas was very nice to let us bring everything in and gave us suggestions on where to eat.
Breathtaking views of the surrounding forest and river, quite neighborhood, large eclectic house, imaginative and approachable property manager. Stayed over the Christmas holiday with two teenagers and assorted visiting grandparents – Thomas made the vacation a snap. The house itself, access to the golf course and nearby towns provided the teenagers (and adults) with a variety of welcome outlets. Being from out of town we were totally reliant on Thomas to deliver us the essentials for our pre discussed holiday festivities. Thomas delivered on those expectations and beyond. I believe that if discussed earlier, he would have been prepared for any holiday we would want to celebrate; “Festivus” through Ramadan.
Kitchen was well outfitted from broiling/BBQ, to desert baking and anything we needed including privacy could be delivered from Thomas. Ability to accommodate pets was nice and the security for them was better than expected. Sunset enthusiasts beware – the end of the day from the deck on this house will make you want to stay. We will come back here again.
A group of my best friends wanted to escape the city for our New Year's, and Rio Casa Del Sol provided a wonderful atmosphere for us to relax and celebrate. We spent our time bird-watching and laughing on the deck, preparing feasts in the awesome kitchen, and playing games on the pool table and around the wood stove. The atrium added a beautiful Zen to our stay, and the beds were incredibly comfortable (I will never forget the skylight stained glass window above my bed)! Communication with Thomas was easy and delightful - he welcomed our love of music! We hope to make this a tradition.
Great location right by Russian River and with the home having its own kayaks/ access to the beach, it was perfect. However we did grill and cook while we were there and felt that the kitchen was lacking in many basic utensils and equipment. We somehow managed but I would have given it a perfect score if the kitchen was better equipped.
We had a great time in this beautiful spacious house. It had everything we needed. The person managing the property is very kind and helpful. He gave us every small possible detail about the house and things we could do around in the area. We will definitely go here again to enjoy this beautiful place.
