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.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean, well stocked, and in a perfect location to enjoy both wine country and the coast. I was pleasantly surprised; it's much nicer than it appears in the pictures.

Very chill spot on the river

  • 4 of 5

The house was clean inside and the dock and hot tub were definitely a bonus....coffee and mimosas out on the deck overlooking the river in the mornings were very cool. Would come back again!

our family of 5 had a wonderful stay at Casa De Rio. Great property & location. Loved every minute!

  • 5 of 5

Casa de Río is a great property and the location was perfect for river fun. The home is clean, safe, and very well appointed. We spent most of our time outdoors kayaking, paddle boarding, swimming, and enjoying the natural beauty of the Russian River area.

Ideal vacation house

  • 5 of 5

This house has everything we needed for a lovely, relaxing and fun river vacation. Fully equipped kitchen (although it could use some sharper knives), full-size grill, delicious spa, and the river is RIGHT THERE. Beds and linens are super comfy, house is ideal combination of luxury and comfort. Great book collection!

When the hot tub went kaput on our second day, Kevin was super responsive and it was fixed by the neighborhood pool guy who was very nice.

I would definitely go back again!

Great memories

  • 5 of 5

Spent my summers when I was much younger at my grandparents cabin. This stay at Kevin's place brought back all those memories. Peewee golf the five and $.10 store and of course the river with all the toys provided. Our stay was wonderful and a great time for the whole family. When the grand children arrived they went right to the river hardly stopping to say hi.
