Greetings! We are Kevin and Sophia O’Donnell and we are currently residing abroad as US Diplomats. Kevin is a Bay Area native and this is our Russian River dream home. We love to visit for its peace, tranquillity, and convenience to wineries, California’s many natural wonders, and our extended family in San Francisco. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
If you are planning to travel to Panama, India, Colombia, Mexico, Africa and Australia we have lived there and can give you some background.
The Owner purchased this house in 2011
The river, the deck, the dock, the redwoods, the hiking, the natural beauty, the pinot noir, the beaches, the farmers markets, the restaurants, the rustic charm, the hot summer days, the cool evenings, the fireplace, the morning fog, the artisan shops, the sauvignon blancs, the amazing vistas, for our kids and for the kids inside of us.
You can enjoy the natural beauty of this special area in an elegantly appointed house with all the amenities to make this a unique experience.
Great, the place was nice and worked well for the six of us who stayed there.
We had a great stay, very much enjoyed it. Kevin was responsive and helpful.
I booked this house for my family visiting and it was the worst experience with a host we have ever had. We've stayed at over 40 rentals and I have never experienced such poor communication with the host. He didn't give us a code to enter the house until late afternoon of the check-in day which ruined my family's day as they planned to leave in the morning and explore the area but couldn't leave until Kevin sent the code. I reached out to him the day before and didn't hear back until late next day. As a result, we spent the morning looking for another rental place in the area. He finally got back to us and said he'll send the code in an hour which he did not...It was unbelievable and very stressful. I sent him over 10 messages that day and we left him 6 voice messages on his phone (he never picked up the number he gave us). The house itself is nice, located right by the river, but it also shares the backyard with the neighbors (never mentioned in the description). The instructions in the house are very confusing and different from those we received (different check-in, check-out times, different phone numbers of the house etc.) Internet also didn't work which happens occasionally, but again, with most hosts you can resolve it quickly, but it's impossible when they don't get back to you. We wrote all of this to the owner as we don't like writing bad reviews, but his response was: I was able to reply at noon (that he would send a code in an hour which we didn't receive until later after 2pm) and the drive takes us 2h from our place so we were fine. That response made us write this review and warn other renters which I notified Kevin I was going to do. Only then, he said he would like to make up for the damage by letting us stay in his house for free in the future which we will never do, as communicating with this person is simply a nightmare. I read a few reviews that complained about the communication with the host but thought it was an exception as many places usually have one or two unhappy renters. Wish I paid attention to it as this was a very sad experience and ruined our family trip.
The house is very nice and well furnished great deck and hot tub-spa. Private dock with your own river access and kayaks and water toys makes this a perfect vacation. We would love to stay again next summer.
Walked in to a very clean home. We had everything we needed for a comfortable stay- cooking supplies, direct river access, cozy beds. It's in a quiet setting, but only a couple minutes to town. My group already decided we'd like to return next year!
