Overview

Guerneville House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + 2 Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Real Neato is located just a mile and a half from Guerneville where great shopping and good restaurants abound. Canoes and kayaks can be rented there or at Burke's, about 8 miles east on River Road. Korbel Winery is only 5 minutes away and we are just 10 minutes from Westside Drive where several top-notch wineries can be visited. Armstrong Redwood Park which has miles of great hiking is also only minutes away. If you prefer the ocean, the Pacific Ocean (Jenner, Goat Rock, etc.) are only 25 minutes to the west.

Required quiet hours are 10 PM to 7 AM. Maximum vehicles allowed are 2.

The huge 'great room' is sunny and cheerful with large double-paned windows throughout. Beautiful hardwood floors and oriental carpets give it a warm, cheerful aspect. The dining room table will seat 10 when fully extended. All kitchen and washing appliances are sparkling new. There is a deck extending 3/4 around the house leading to a hot tub which overlooks the river. The large front deck perched above the river is anchored by two redwood trees. In the summer you will be delighted watching a parade of canoes, kayaks and frolicking swimmers. In the morning and early evening the ducklings and many water birds venture out.

Because we are on a bend in the river, there are delightful river views from every room in the house (except one back bathroom). The master bedroom which stretches across the front of the house has views both up and down the river.

River access is available by stairs on both sides of the house and on the left is a new swimming dock with a ladder for easy egress/ingress.

About Sue Schueler 769N

Jeremy and I had been renting at the Russian River for 7 years. We loved the proximity to our home in San Rafael (one hour travel time), the beauty of the river and the fun of swimming in fresh water. I had always wanted to have a home with a water view and we got it! There is a beautiful river view from every room except one bathroom.

Sue Schueler 769N purchased this house in 2006

Why Sue Schueler 769N chose Sonoma County

River front homes are hard to find so we were thrilled when this house which is so close to the river you could almost fish from the deck came on the market. It is only a mile and a half from Guerneville which has a 24 hour Safeway, good restaurants and shops. Armstrong Redwood Park is about 15 minutes away and Jenner and the Pacific Ocean only about 25 minutes away.

What makes this house unique

We love watching the parade of canoes and kayaks coming down the river on a summer day or just sitting on the deck watching baby ducks and other birds. We have uncovered two sets of stairs down to the river and added ladders in the water so it's easy to swim. In the winter we enjoy gathering around the gas fireplace which turns on with a flick of a switch or warming up in the hot tub.

Really was Neato!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Real Neato! Pictures can't do the view justice. Bring a kayak for extra fun. Sue the owner is quick to respond. The home was clean and had all the amenities you need. The fact that our dog was welcome was the icing on the cake. Can't wait to return!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Owner was very responsive to emails, and the description of the home is accurate. It's a very nice 2-story house with 2 beds and a futon, right off the main road. The deck surrounding the the home is great and has fantastic views of the river. The location was my favorite part because where the house is on at the river, even during this drought, is very full and deep which is great for swimming. Even has a nice little private dock. The hot tub is also a nice bonus. Close to Korbel, and just a mile or 2 down the road to Safeway. The only downside I could see anyone complaining about is the sound of road traffic right out front, even at night. But we didn't mind much. Would rent again.

Great weekend getaway at Real Neato

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Real Neato! It was a great place to get away for a weekend. The seating area on the deck had beautiful views. To seat there and have a glass of wine in the evening or a cup of coffee in the morning looking at the river was just priceless. The only thing we did not like is the proximity to the road and if you open the windows, you can hear the cars driving by. Overall, we had a great time....thank you Sue!

Great location, cozy house

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Real Neato! It was perfect for what we were looking for - a place to getaway, relax on the river, be near wine tasting, and just enjoy each other's company. We slept all 8 of us very comfortably, and the house had everything it said it would. It was perfect. And the view and access to the river was amazing!! We'd stay again, and said we should make it an annual trip! Thank you Real Neato for allowing us to visit!

Beautiful views on the river

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed Memorial Day weekend with friends at Sue's home. The views were beautiful and we enjoyed a few nice BBQs on the deck. It's a good jumping off point for floating/kayaking and the hot tub was functional and perfect for the cooler nights. The home is modestly furnished and feels like a true home. We enjoyed cooking in the kitchen almost every evening! Sue is also very responsive and flexible. Thanks and look forward to visiting again!

Amazing 4th of July Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome location and a great house. 8 adults stayed over the 4th of July weekend and we are hoping to make this an annual tradition. Huge deck overlooks the river, nice dock on the river with great swimming and fishing(caught 8), laundry, kitchen was stocked w all cooking supplies, bedrooms were well-kept and s generous size, and the house was very clean. Location is great as you are walking distance to a few restaurants, down-town Rio Nido, and only a 3 minute drive to Guerneville. All around great place to stay!
