Comfortable and spacious house

  • 5 of 5

Our group was very happy with our stay at Vista Serena. It’s a spacious and comfortable house that lacks for nothing by way of amenities. Clare is a thoughtful and communicative host, and has made Vista Serena a place I would definitely rent again!

Like a second home

  • 5 of 5

Not my first visit - but I always love returning to Vista because it feels just like walking into my own home. The property is always clean and well taken care of with a full stock of everything one would need - from kitchenware to dog blankets to extra pillows. We even were able to make French onion soup for our friends! The spa was a little funky when we arrived, but the Spa Man took care of it while we were out running errands. We didn't even realize he had been there until Clare thoughtfully let us know the spa should be all good to use! Not sure what the previous guests did, but we've never had an issue with the spa following the provided instructions. This was not our first visit to Vista and we almost never have any issues, but Clare is always attentive and available if we have any questions or concerns. Vista is a gem and we can't wait to return and enjoy all the offerings of Guerneville and Sonoma County wine country.

Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The house is lovely and the location is great. Very quiet area, but not too far from 'things to do'. We had a 3.5 yr old child with us, so the park across the street was a real plus. The proximity to town was perfect; a nice walk for a few forgotten grocery items at the local Safeway! And the beautiful Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve, just a 6 min drive away, offers different levels of hikes and a picnic area in an enchanting forest. The kitchen is VERY well stocked with just about everything you could want for meal preparation and service. (We're all 'foodies', and made good use of it!) The complimentary bottle of wine from Clare was a very sweet touch! The bottle was from one of our favorite wineries. Lots of sitting room in the living room/great room area for enjoying the play-off game together. The hot tub was especially nice after hiking, during the cold weather. As this was a winter trip, we didn't spend much time on the deck other than to soak in the hot tub, but it looks to be quite inviting in the warmer months. Beds were comfortable. There is sleeping room for 10, but some of it is shared space. If privacy is an issue, I would not plan on a party of 10. There were 6 adults and 1 child in our party and it was just enough with the 3 bedrooms. All in all, it was a very relaxing and enjoyable stay and we would book this house again. The owner has done much to ensure a pleasant stay!

Owner's Response: Susan, thank you so much for taking the time to write a review and talk about all the activities you enjoyed in and around Guerneville. It is a very central location. Armstrong Woods is the number 1 Sonoma County attraction and we are lucky to have it right here in our town with all it's beauty. I have received several positive feedback reviews for the local park with the children's area as well as tennis courts and basketball courts. It is well maintained. Even when it is too cold to use the river there is plenty to keep guests busy. The surrounding local towns are all close and each unique. I always contact guests personally when they are requesting to bring 10 adults or grown up children. I have done my best to describe the sleeping arrangements on the VRBO sight as well as including pictures but I still do a follow up so guests can understand there is shared sleeping space in the master with 10. Every year, I do get several families and groups of ladies celebrating a special occasion with the full 10 adult guests. Hope you all return again. You are a joy to host. Clare

BE PREPARED TO LOSE YOUR SECURITY DEPOSIT

  • 1 of 5

You may be like me--a conscientious, rule-following guest, who treats the home of others as if it were your own, but if you rent this place, BE PREPARED TO LOSE YOUR SECURITY DEPOSIT. I planned to give this property a good review, however, due to inaccurate conclusions reached by the owner, I am not able to do so. The home is lovely and well appointed. It's clean and well maintained. Communication with the owner was timely and thorough. As we departed the home, we all enthusiastically agreed that we would "definitely come back to this place". However, within 24 hours of our departure, I had an email from the owner telling me that I was being charged for damage to the spa. Unfortunately, due to the weather, we didn't even sit outside--let alone use the spa. In fact, we never even unlocked the doors to go onto the deck. Her spa maintenance man came while we were there to service the spa. The next day, her cleaning lady reported that the water was cloudy. Despite my assertion that we did not use or even touch the spa, we have been charged for repairs that we are NOT responsible for. She has the word of her employees, yet, as a stranger, she believes that I am being untruthful. She has said that this has been a problem in the past, and that other tenants have been caught in lies. (Which also makes me wonder why she's having ongoing problems with the water turning cloudy?) I encouraged her to talk to neighbors, look at security footage--whatever she needs to do, because I know the truth that our actions could not have caused any issues with the water being cloudy. Nonetheless, she is holding me financially responsible. By far, the most difficult part of all of this is the insinuation that I am a liar. While I am sympathetic to the position the owner is in, it doesn't change the fact I did nothing wrong and that my integrity and reputation have been called into question. I am out a considerable amount of money for something I didn't do. It's a very unfortunate situation and it saddens me that the owner has lost such faith in others that a persons word seems to mean nothing. Despite this being a lovely home, unless you are willing to risk your security deposit, I cannot in good conscience recommend it to future travelers. I feel it's important to give a full report of my experience with this rental property--both the good and the bad, and I hope that reading this will save others from the angst I've experienced over this.

Owner's Response: It is always the goal to refund security deposits in full. Over 98% of the time this has been possible since Vista Serena started in 2007. The majority of your security deposit was refunded, minus the extra spa service, through the HomeAway online payments system which can take from 5 to 7 working days depending on the location of your bank. Vista Serena has never had to withhold a total security deposit and I thank my guests for making that possible. The spa is only accessible for guests since access is from within the house. Clare

Comfortable and Clean Gettaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for five days with four adults and four kids, aged 1, 2, 3, and 5. Most importantly for us, the house was very clean and had all the amenities we needed. A nice playground across the street and an easy 10-minute walk into town and the river bank were great.

Additionally, Goat Rock Beach on the coast and a redwood forest state park were easy drives. We didn't do any winery visits but those are also a ~15-20 minute drive away. Very convenient location for what we were looking for.

Clare was super responsive and helpful throughout the booking and our stay. She was kind to leave a bottle of wine for us.

Guerneville is a funky place, which can be both good and bad. We live in downtown SF and are used to living alongside people with mental and addiction issues, but were surprised to see it so prevalent in Guerneville. None of us felt safe crossing the bridge, which seemed to be where these individuals collected, into town after dark.

Overall a great stay. Very relaxing and exactly as advertised.

Owner's Response: Thank you Aaron for taking the time to express your appreciation of a clean and comfortable vacation home. I will pass your compliments onto Elizabeth who deserves the credit for doing such a good job. I too very much appreciate the location and intentionally fell in love with the home and Guerneville because it is located between the vineyards and the ocean. That ocean also provides a breeze off the river and more comfortable summer days than inland locations. The homeless folks here as well as where I live in California have real needs but no solution. Hope you all come back for summer river fun. Clare

About The Owner

I started out with a friend looking for a B&B. As the story goes she got up early one morning and after listening to all the woes from the owner she said 'No Way' --'This is as hard as our regular job.' We are both nurses. I was too afraid to go it alone-- So we thought how about the B (bed) with out the B(breakfast) and that lead me to a vacation home. She eventually bought one too not very far from mine. I never heard of the Russian River except for a Chardonnay I always liked. When I was shown around the area I fell in love with the Giant Redwood trees and the Ocean Breeze and thought what a great location being close to the wineries of course but also the coast and enjoying the river. When I saw this home I had a picture in my mind of grape vines going up the long drive and Vista Serena seemed like the perfect name to gather family and friends for fun and relaxation. The 10 year old vines were planted in 2007. I am learning about pruning. Table Grapes made sense so we can all enjoy them immediately. I hope you come share my beautiful Vista and make wonderful memories to last a long long time.

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

Why The Owner chose Guerneville

My home is in Orange County and the Russian River is a wonderful escape and change of life style. I love being able to walk to town and restaurants and shoppes. The crisp air and breeze spreads a clean scent of redwood trees to the whole area.

Of course all the wineries are great but so is golf, hiking and boating/swimming in the river. There are so many choices and fun things to do each day.

The California Coast in this area is beautiful. From Bodega Bay to Mendocino has unbelievable views as you drive the coast. Great restaurants overlooking the water in Jenner just 14 miles away.

Some days I just sit on the deck and walk among the grape vines and Just Chill Out

Guestbook comments from the owner

HI Clare,

Staying at your place was one of the highlights besides my son's wedding.

The place was immaculate, the welcome wine was perfect, I could not think of anything that was missing. I was able to find just about anything that one can ask for.

What a generous and gracious your family is in allowing folks like us to enjoy the beautiful family pad.
