This property was the perfect size for our group over the weekend. We booked this trip to get away from it all and also access Harbin Hot Springs. It was about 20-25 minutes away which was quite convenient. The house was designed beautifully and decorated to the nines. Its got a totally funky, vibrant aesthetic which was so enjoyable. The beds were awesome and falling asleep to the sounds of the creek was great.
The house was clean except for the second fridge. That was pretty dirty. I had to wipe down the patio tables a few times to get them clean. Other than some much needed weed wacking and piles of wood/ building materials (which makes it look messy) the property was decent. The little canyon it sits in is quiet and secluded, minus the road that runs directly in front of the house and separates the property and creek. Traffic was light but obvious. The drive down the long half paved, half gravel road (Big Canyon Rd) was an adventure through magnificent burnt terrain. It is so serene to see the landscape come back to life. The stated signage of "Griffin's Nest" didn't exist but a very rough number sign marked the house.
Overall it was a lovely stay with all amenities available except the BBQ. When hooking the propane up, the attachment to the tank kept leaking gas. So it was just a quick change of plans for dinner. No big deal.
If you have 10, it will sleep comfortably. Eating could be an issue since the only tables are outside. So just keep that in mind. During the summer the deck is the place to be. Dragonfly's galore and no mosquito bites.
Beautiful property in the middle of nowhere; great get away from the city, but you really must double check to pack everything you might need.
We were there for the long July 4th weekend and it was the perfect solitude getaway we needed from the busy Bay Area. The house was well stocked and clean and modern. It’s on a unpaved road and no houses nearby. We played in the creek with the kids and enjoyed Harbin Hot Springs down the road. The nice part of the lake was quite a ways away so we never made it but other than that we had a great time star gazing the skyscape and enjoying the weather on the deck. The only other setback was not having a common area to eat around when the sun was too hot to eat outside.
Great summer home
We had a great experience. The house is brand new and the decoration is spot on. It is very spacious and have beautiful bathrooms (that’s right i said bathrooms). The nature surrounding it is gorgeous.
Highly recommend this place for a group of friends or family.
Thank you so much Taysir for taking the time to review us, we loved shared our place with you. Looking forward to host you again.
Serene and peaceful
This is our second stay at this location...super isolated and remote with well appointed home and lots of peace and quiet. We stopped for provisions in Napa and stomped in the creek for afternoon entertainment. Will be back as our oldest daughter and her family are not far away and we can have them for a sleepover.
It is so nice to hear that this is your second stay with us in our place, we loved!
Thank you so much for you review and the 5 stars, looking forward to host you again soon.
