About David Keip

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

Why David Keip chose Sonoma County

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.

What makes this house unique

Proximity to so many healthy activities, beautiful forest, great swimming pool, tennis and golf nearby. Our adult children and our grandchildren love to come.

California Getaway

  • 5 of 5

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!

Wonderful grounds, pool is fantastic, a little dated on the inside, very well stocked and maintained

  • 4 of 5

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!!!

Best Vacation Rental!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home! I have rented at least 20 vacation rentals & this is by far the best one yet. We were there for our annual girls week. The house is just as the pictures look. There is plenty of seating in the dining room as well as the living room, family room & back yard. The back family room & bedroom are great if you have a need for a private area. All the beds were very comfortable (we did not use the loft). The kitchen is very well stocked, it's nice to have 2 dishwashers. We enjoyed to garden, used herbs, onions, lettuce & artichokes, can't get any fresher. We spent a lot of time on the deck, it was a bit cool for the pool but we did use it & the Jacuzzi. There are many wineries near by & the coast is a short day trip. Armstrong Redwood is a must visit!

Amazing Home

  • 5 of 5

My family, our doggie, and I loved the whole property! Very hard to decide which is our favorite, but if we had to choose just one, I would have to say the pool area! Very private, open, clean, lounge chairs available, pool toys, deck, and you are able to see it from the kitchen window and the sliding doors.

I loved the property because it was big enough for our whole family and it allowed us to spend some quality family time as if we were right at home. We didn't have any issues with the home or owners. They David was so helpful and kind.

Thank You and we would definitely book with you on our next trip to Guerneville!

Gorgeous property

  • 5 of 5

We loved the space in the property, especially the dining table and the living room. It was great to have everyone gather (in our large party) in one space and also outside on the lounge chairs. The property was gorgeous and it was nice to be able to use some of the herbs from the garden. All of my friends commented very positively about the house and the comfort of the beds. Thank you so much for sharing your amazing home with us!

Tranquility and Peace

  • 5 of 5

We had a family getaway with 13 folks, and were pleasantly surprised at the openness and spaciousness of the house, and the thoughtfulness of the owners to stock facial tissue (half of us were sick)! We loved the different areas - the air hockey table, pool table and hot tub were quite popular. I especially loved the tranquility and peacefulness every morning watching the fog drift through the trees in the morning while sitting at the dining room table with a large mug of tea. The garden also is very peaceful - as we were there in January, there weren't any fruits or vegetables to be had. All the beds were very comfortable, although the loft area has a sloped ceiling so the older kids (over 5'8" tall) didn't want to sleep there since they'd hit their heads. The owner and manager were excellent to work with, and answered all my emails patiently. We had a wonderful time. Thank you for sharing your beautiful and comfortable home!
