STUNNING VACATION HOME WITH RIVER AND OCEAN VIEWS!

Gualala House Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps up to 10)

Welcome to Riverhouse!

Walk through the door and leave the stress behind! Imagine the possibilities...a relaxing weekend with the family, a reunion of old friends, a Girls or Guys weekend getaway or a Holiday getaway! Do nothing, or do it all. Curl up with a good book in front of the fire place. Sunbathe on the deck and enjoy the view of the Gualala River where it meets the Pacific ocean. Play soccer with the kids in the fenced yard. Let the kids play in the yard while you observe from the deck above, with wine in hand! Roast marshmallows in the fire pit for 'smores. Go to Glass Beach in Mendocino, ride the Skunk Train in Fort Bragg, catch a movie in Point Arena. Or leave the kids with the Grandparents and enjoy an adult getaway. There is an endless list of activities from kayaking to hiking to getting massages...The choice is yours...

Our beach house has been lovingly remodeled from shack to chateau! You will find all the comforts of home and then some but the best part is that you're NOT home! You are here in Gualala away from the phone, the bills, the chores and all the other things that stress you out. There are 3 queen beds, and 4 twins. This house is furnished with nice linens, electric blankets and duvets for comfort, a fully stocked kitchen, satellite TV and lots of games and books. There is no dark wood or dated furnishings here...it is light, bright and comfortable! Many more photos available at http://stef.zenfolio.com/p259504011 ...check them out!

About Nannette Wilkinson

Nannette and Philip Wilkinson. We are a Physical Therapist and a General Building Contractor. We have transformed this property from little more than a neglected, run-down shack, to its current form.

Nannette Wilkinson purchased this house in 1998

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Our large family made many wonderful memories throughout our 7 day stay. Sunny late mornings provided fresh air out on your spacious front deck for breakfasts, sunning, and just hanging out together before beach excursions, while the tree house and tire swing offered special old fashioned fun breaks for our grand kids' from their hypnotic digital devices. Your huge dining room table was perfect for mealtimes, conversations, and games, and we enjoyed warm, cozy evenings together by a crackling fire in your efficient fireplace in the living room. For us, the elderly parents (and grand parents) in the group, our most memorable family activity at River House was watching a special DVD one of our sons had made for us as a Christmas gift...a twenty year span of old 8 mm movies from 1965 to 1985, documenting our six children's' births, birthdays and Christmases! As Bob Hope used to sing at the close of his programs, thanks for the memories."

We loved this home! The owner was kind & helpful before, during & after our stay. This home will work nicely for almost any family. We only had a few glitches due to my husband’s mobility difficulties (he needs the use of a walker or wheelchair). The stairs into the home are sturdy & the railing is strong but it was a difficult for my husband. We loved sitting out on the deck with the beautiful view, sound of the ocean & occasional bark of a seal. This was a favorite spot for my husband who could come in & out of the house easily. We loved sitting out there to talk, play cards, & watch the family playing yard games down below or just look at the beautiful view (including deer). My husband & I used the bedroom next to the kitchen which has its own bathroom. He could easily get into the bedroom & bathroom using his walker but he was unable to shower due to the bathtub being too narrow for a shower chair or stool & there were no grab bars. The other downstairs bathroom has a beautiful claw bathtub everyone else enjoyed but my husband was unable to access it.
Even though the River House is in town it does not feel like it. The home is situated in a way that you feel you are away from the rest of the world. We had good cell service (Verizon). The TV was turned on a few times for sporting events & the children enjoyed the DVD player & movies in the play room. We opened up the chairs in the play room for our young adult sons to sleep on but they were not comfortable so we moved the children there & they were happy as clams. The owner had told us that room was best suited for children; she was correct. All the other beds were very comfortable.
There is a nice assortment of pots, pans, dishes that worked for all the meals we cooked. It was an easy quick drive to the store for any groceries. We also used the BBQ gas grill at the home.
We enjoyed the nearby beach just on the other side of the Gualala river bridge. You can park there for $7 & walk or ride a bike along the paved path. We brought my husband one day & took our time pushing the wheelchair. It was a lovely walk but for him to view the water we had to leave the paved path & work hard to get to a picnic table overviewing the beach. It was always windy and colder at the beach than at the River House.
The tree house was breathtaking. The preteen loved it & felt she had her own special place. I loved was the bluff overlooking the water just through the back gate – so close!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your detailed review. I'm very glad it worked out for your husband as well as it did, considering we had discussed the limitations of the house beforehand and knew what you would be up against. This house has gone through three remodels and thankfully now it is possible to get a w/c in the house whereas before it would have been impossible. When we can afford the next remodel, we will put in a ramp, grab bars and a hot tub! (So tell your friends! :)) The state park has actually done a lot of work to make it more family friendly and accessible during the last 15 years...a few years ago there were no picnic table, only benches so I'm happy there is at least progress in this area and you were all able to enjoy it.
Please come back again.

This house is just picture perfect!! In fact the pictures do not really show how beautiful it is. It is so perfectly set up with everything you could ever need. The views and the gentle sound of the ocean was so relaxing. There are beaches in every direction, we when on a different walk every day exploring. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home. <3

Inviting ocean view home. A great place to relax.

  • 5 of 5
I'd stay again! The home is well kept and comfortable, even for a large group (11 of us), but also has areas for privacy and space for quiet time. Wonderful view of the ocean. I loved hearing the ocean in the background. It had comfortable beds. The kitchen was well stocked and very functional. It is within walking distance of an ocean ridge trail and many shops in town. Beach access is a very short drive. Although there are other homes around, there is a very private feeling. I would definetly recommend this home to friends and relatives. It was the perfect place for a women's retreat!
