We grew up outside of New York City, went to Yale and Cornell, and raised our families in Sonoma County.
David Keip purchased this house in 2008
We have a large family with nine children, their spouses and 10 grandchildren. We bought this house so we could all be together and relax and visit, and enjoy the river, the woods, the ocean and the gardens. We love it.
Proximity to so many healthy activities, beautiful forest, great swimming pool, tennis and golf nearby. Our adult children and our grandchildren love to come.
We just loved the house. I went there to celebrate my 30th birthday with my husband and 4 other couples. The house was amazing, so beautiful and so much room. The kitchen was amazing, so much fun to cook and eat together. It was close to all of wine country and within 3 miles of a Redwood State Forest. It had a pool and hot tub and in the garage there was a game room. It was perfect for a large group, with 3 total kitchens and enough beds to sleep 28 people. Just know that some of those sleeping spaces include pull out couches and bunk beds/day beds. I would definitely love to stay again!
Our group of 10 adults and one baby had a lovely stay over a holiday weekend. We appreciated that the kitchen and dining area was fully equipped and had all that we could possibly need to cook and dine with our large group, including 2 dishwashers for easy clean up. The yard was spacious and well suited for hanging outside, with plenty of tables and chairs and areas for lounging (although we didn't do much as it was a cold winter weekend). All in all, it was a great rental property for our needs.
The only thing that we should have paid more attention to was the bedroom layout; the three bedrooms off the main living & dining area are lovely, but the two additional sleeping areas are a bit less desirable- both are through the pantry, off the kitchen, with one being a slightly odd, small room off a tiled "family room," and the other being a loft area above the garage (with no bathroom). These sleeping arrangements might work fine for children or teens, but the 2 couples that were in these locations definitely felt like they were getting a slightly lesser experience compared to the three couples that had "real" bedrooms.
One of the highlights of our stay was how easy it was to book, and how communicative David was prior to our stay. We had all of the information needed to enjoy our visit, and felt that we were in good hands. We appreciated the level of detail provided about the home and arrival information, and how thoughtful the owners were in providing all of the amenities that we'd ever want. Thanks for a lovely rental house experience!
Had a change to celebrate my wife's and two other dear friends birthdays at Guerneville. The house was bigger than expected and felt quite spacious! Would love to come back here during the summer!
This house was so amazing!! We had 9 people in our group and there was more than enough room for everyone to relax and have fun. The children (4 of them age ranging from 16 - 12) basically had their own wing! 2 twin beds and a set of bunk beds and a big screen t.v., leather sectional, their own bathroom and kitchenette! The dinning room was big enough to fit our family with out having to bring extra tables in, which is rare for us. LOVED the peace and quiet of the neighborhood, all you can hear are the birds, wildlife and the wind through the trees. It was also really nice to be close to Armstrong Woods. To walk through with these tall giants was amazing. We would all stay here again.
We came here with two families and certainly had plenty of room. The place was very comfortable and clean with all the amenities for the kiddos. The location is excellent. A good walk from town. We enjoyed walking to and from at dinner time. The pool was an excellent break in between activities. We enjoyed all the wild blackberries in the surrounding area. The location is also excellent for hiking, a quick ride to the beach or Healdsburg! Thank you for such a wonderful experience!
Great space for multi generation family vacation - kid friendly, accommodates multiple families, great pool, large dinning, kitchen, and living spaces with multiple refrigerators and dishwashers, awesome air hokey & billiard table. Well stocked with linens, towels, and kitchen supplies. Wonderful garden with great vegetables & herbs & fruit. Fantastic location. Suggestions - screen in sliding door, blinds on large door/window, kitchen rugs, board games/toys for younger kids, and better signage outside in gate. We had a really great time thank you!!!
