About the property

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

Though it's in the woods there are lots of sunny areas all over the deck and house.

Peaceful, beautiful outdoor getaway

  • 5 of 5

Ronit was very accommodating to our group! She was very responsive to our questions and was always there if we needed anything. The place itself is a very quaint and modern home in the middle of a peaceful and beautiful forest. Even though the downtown area was only 2 minutes away, my group and I felt as if we were out camping. Even when we were at the house, there were so many things to do. There’s a ping pong table, a pool table, and even a hot tub! Inside there was also a plethora of different cooking utensils and basics and we were able to comfortably cook and eat our own meals. 5/5 would reccommend!

An Oasis...

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were visiting our daughter and her family, who live in Oakland. Another of our daughters also joined us with her 2 kids.

This place was WONDERFUL for us, and making the arrangements with Ronit was a great pleasure. It was fun exploring the area, even though

it was rather cold while we were there.

HOPE TO STAY HERE AGAIN on our next trip!!

Lovely home and location

  • 4 of 5

The house is very cozy and the deck is massive! We stayed during a very chilling February weekend and we had a fantastic time. The central heating did not work but there are space heaters in every room, it just takes a bit to heat up the house. You are just minutes from the Russian River and 15 mins from Jenner and the Pacific Ocean. All the beds were very comfortable and the water pressure was amazing! We had a really great weekend here.

Really great house

  • 5 of 5

Very spacious house that is stocked with everything you need. The outside patio is amazing and has a very large hot tub. The owners were easy to work with. ( Tip: the drive way is steep and only fits about 3 cars).

AMAZING forest retreat

  • 5 of 5

Wow! Tucked into a serene corner of Guerneville/Monte Rio, the deck alone made our trip. Surrounded by trees and plenty of space to spend time with family, we couldn't have asked for a better location. Being across the street from a pretty amazing 9-hole golf course didn't hurt either! If I ever bring a big group back to the area, I would 100% book this place again. Thanks Ronit!
