Guestbook comments from the owner

"We stayed here to celebrate our 20th Anniversary and a birthday. It was amazing! It is very private and we loved the sauna. The house is nearly new and everything is in great condition. The view from the deck is stunning. We enjoyed many meals out on the deck enjoying the view. I especially appreciated the Sonos music system and the fireplace. During our stay we only left twice. Once to the go the beach and a second time to go to the "River's End" for a romantic sunset dinner. The rest of the time we thoroughly enjoyed the home. It's quite a way up in the hills on a graded dirt road, which was a nice scenic drive in our SUV. We even saw a bobcat on the road. Both the master and 2nd bedrooms were large with king beds. Both very nice and quiet. I highly recommend it for a romantic getaway where you want to be away from it all. "

Amazing location. Privacy and a view!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home, a work of art. It is easy to find, just take it slow and put it in a lower gear going back down.

There were many windows in the house to let in natural light and the view was absolutely breathtaking. Privacy was no issue, you can barely see other buildings through the trees. We spent most of our time taking in the view from the deck, listening and watching to birds fly less than 50 feet overhead (I heard a raven's wings flap and just soar. Pretty cool!), and using the hot tub / spa area a flight of stairs below. The ocean sunset was beautiful, even through the windows! I've never seen such deep blues right at dusk.

Thanks John for allowing us to spend some time at your beautiful property, I hope to be able to visit again in the future!

Indescribable Peacefulness

  • 5 of 5

Although we were challenged in finding this haven on a very dark and lightly raining night it was worth the effort. We would suggest posting the address so that it faces arriving guests. Luckily we are the sort who are comfortable with adventures; someone else may have found the inconveniences we encountered that night too challenging. All that aside, once we finally got into the property, we LOVED it. This home is amazing! The kitchen is very well stocked and truly, we think you would find whatever you need here especially if you are looking for solitude and the opportunity to leave all your cares behind. Cell service is especially poor in this area and we had to deal with doing without. Not too hard. The hot tub location is spectacular as the view of stars on a clear moonless night is astounding and on a rainy night it is a treat to have warm soothing water to relax in while cool raindrops and fog surround you. The view toward the ocean is wonderful and as we left to return to our "usual" we were treated to a glorious day of sunshine sparkling on the water and urging us to come back. That would be spectacular! In the daylight! Arrive in the daylight! That's what we recommend. Many thanks to our hosts for giving us a much needed respite!

Peaceful and beautiful getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house is spacious, comfortable, and well equipped. The views are gorgeous and it is fun to explore the area, including kayaking around Penny Island in Jenner and wine tasting at Fort Ross! It was nice to sit on the deck in the evening and cook meals in the home.

What a wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

The views were second to none and the house was well furnished and spotless. A truly unique location that makes you feel far removed from everything yet the beach is 10 minutes away. The hot tub and sauna were very clean and were in perfect running order. We will definitely be coming back to this awesome spot.

Secluded sanctuary that exceeded all expectations

  • 5 of 5

Casa Cielo is a stunning, well-finished, fully-furnished home nestled amongst the redwoods with breathtaking, all encompassing views and gracious, accommodating owners. This secluded home was the perfect spot to enjoy a weekend getaway with our college age children. Over the years, we have rented many homes up and down the Northern California coast and we all agreed that this spot was by far our favorite. There aren't words enough to do the experience justice. We are so looking forward to returning soon for a longer stay. Thank you John and co. for sharing this wonderful home with us and for your kindness.

Just an hour and a half from both San Francisco and Napa Valley, come and stay on the gorgeous Sonoma County Coast, in beautiful and secluded Jenner, CA. Revel in the fresh scent of the sea with lovely mild days and brilliant evening stars. Enjoy a variety of activities, including hiking, beach combing, bird watching, whale watching, stargazing, and wine tasting. Russian River is just a hop, skip and a jump away where you can see live theater, hike in the redwoods, rent bicycles, go on an eco tour or enjoy a canoe trip. Just 15 miles from Casa Cielo is the tranquil Osmosis Day Spa Sanctuary, where you can enjoy a cedar enzyme bath, get a massage or facial or use their meditation gardens. Casa Cielo is our little piece of heaven that we are waiting to share with you!
