Overview

Northwood House Rental Photos and Description

130' long deck with a stunning house in the Redwoods.

The most prominent feature of this house is the enormous outdoor area on our 130 foot long deck. Surrounded by monarch redwood and fir trees and manicured to let the sun in, there are different sitting areas, an extending table for 12, a hot tub area with its own little deck, ping pong table, pool table, barbeque, the atmosphere is woven with wildlife, ocean breezes, flowers and shrubbery with gentle counterpoints of bluejays and owls.

Though its in the woods but there are lots of sunny areas all over the deck and house.

The deck is a great and safe place for kids in that it is completely contained. Even though there are houses nearby you have the feeling of privacy and that you are miles from anywhere or anyone.

The house is bright and modern with hardwood floors throughout; the living room has a stove/fireplace, a spinet piano, TV/cable/vcr/dvd and Wi-Fi.

The main house sleeps 6-8 people and the cleaning fee for it is:$150.

The guest house is an additional $80 per night for up to 2 people. When the guest house is also rented the total cleaning fee is to $180.

There are 3 bedrooms, each with its own charms, new comfortable beds, down comforters, hardwood floors;

2 bathrooms in Carrara marble, (one with a jacuzzi bathtub),

4 large skylights, and great outdoor views from all sides of the house.

AVAILABLE FOR $80/NIGHT PLUS ADDITIONAL CLEANING FEE OF $30.

This is a great house for family, friends and kids.

This is NOT a 'PARTY ZONE' we respect our neighbors and like to keep the noise down at night.There is a 'quite time' between 10pm-8am.Please be mindful of it

and respectful to our surroundings.

Parking- There is room for 3 cars in the driveway.

This is an up slope driveway,all concrete cover so it is easy to drive up.

If you drive a low car you will like to consider parking on the side of the road..at the end of the deck on the road side on the right side there is a place to park as well.

Most cars have no problems to park in the driveway.

****NO DOG PLEASE.****

inside the house or outside on the deck.

This house invites you to relax, share the company of your family and friends, eat well and drink good wine.

Please note that there is a 'Quiet time ' between 10pm till 8am. Voices on the deck at night carry far into our neighbors bedrooms.

Please be mindful and talk very softly if you are out on the deck late at night.

Serene and beautiful!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at this beautiful house! Everyone had such a great time. I was in charge of planning my sister's bachelorette weekend getaway. She wanted to do something fun and relaxing and this was the perfect fit. The house is located in the beautiful woods, it felt like you were in a tree house. We spent a lot of time cooking together in the kitchen, hanging out in the living room, on the deck, and in the hot tub. On Saturday we also went into town and spent most of the day in the river. There were 10 of us including including my younger sister and mom and everyone had a great time. The house is very comfortable and was a great place to get away. You are a short drive into town. I love Guerneville, such a cute place! There are some great places to eat and always fun to hang out by the Russian River. At the house, there is great wifi, netflix, and all of the pillows, blankets, pots, pans, cooking and serving dishes and utensils you would need. There is also a pool and a ping pong table. The hosts are both very nice and responsive. If you have verizon, you will get cell phone reception at the house, but otherwise you probably won't, but at least you can access wifi on your phone and there is a landline at the house you can use. The driveway is at an incline and felt a little treacherous on the way up and down, we survived, and the house made it up for, but we did have to help guide each other up and down each time. All in all, we had a wonderful weekend stay! Thank you so much for sharing your house with us!!

Serene AND all around fabulous

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at Ronit's. The place is more beautiful than the pictures are able to convey. The kitchen was great and really well equipped, we ate every meal at home. The beds were very comfortable. The hot tub was invitingly clean. My one year old grand daughter came and had great fun playing with all of the toys at the house. I wish we had been there a week with time to fully enjoy the deck. The check in and check out went smoothly. We all had a wonderful time. I can't wait to go back!!! Deborah

Perfect for a ladies weekend or friend reunion

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 10; with several people from all over the country coming to celebrate a friends pregnancy with her and her partner. This place blew our expectations and were really just taken away in how nice it was. It was very cold when we arrived and having the fireplace just changed everything for us. I would definitely recommend this place and Ronit was great to work with. :)

Great for vacations of families with kids

  • 5 of 5

We were three families with kids ranging from newborn to 7, and this house was perfect! I agree with other reviewers who wrote that space is perfect for kids and families. We stayed there for one week and would have stayed longer. The kids enjoyed their room with lots of toys. The deck was a nice place to sit outside, the hot tub was clean but not too hot to be there with kids. The kitchen is convenient and well stocked

The location itself is very close to the river, so we spent a lot of time on the beach, but also it was a pleasure to return to the house every day.

We will certainly consider this house next time.

Perfect weekend getaway for families with kids

  • 5 of 5

We were three families with kids ranging from newborn to 7, and this house was perfect! I agree with other reviewers who wrote that space was beautiful and felt very private; also perfect for kids. There is a separate room for them with multiple beds and lots of toys. Plus the deck is fully enclosed so no one can escape--allowing parents to fully relax. Hot tub was clean, hot, and easy to cover and uncover--again helpful with kids. Kitchen was well-stocked with pots, utensils, and cooking equipment we needed to prepare large meals for big groups. We picked in part because of location--close to coast, river, and wine country--but once we got there, we never left, because it was so beautiful and relaxing!

Wonderful Family Stay

  • 5 of 5

We were three families with young children and found the house perfect for us. It was in a nice setting under the redwoods and had a lot of secure space the kids to run around. The deck and kids room was a great hangout space for the kids while the adults hung out. We recommend this place highly in general, but especially if you are traveling with kids.
