Great Spot!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time here - great location, beautiful patio overlooking the river. Close to Guernville. Kitchen is really well stocked with all the cooking utensils, pots/pans, knives, etc. that you could possibly need!

Lovely riverfront property!

  • 4 of 5

It is all about the deck and river view! Very comfy deck chairs, nice hot tub, clean and comfortable interior, perfectly appointed. Also nice to be in the heart of Monte Rio, near kayak rental and restaurants/grocery. One of the lower bunk beds tended to be pretty squeeky--perhaps that is something that can be fixed? Very relaxing and reguvinating!

Great location - owner extremely helpful and flexible!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay right on the river and the owner Rick was so accessible, helpful and went way out of his way to deliver an item we accidentally we left next day air. Perfect location a few blocks from key areas on Monte Rio. Wonderful hot tub and very comfortable home. We will likely come back again next time we are in the area!

Outstanding Extended Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time that asked the family for an extra day and they had no issues with it! I would recommend for families, weekend getaways and anyone looking to escape the everyday hustle & bustle. The deck was beautiful for sunrise & sunset and the locals were great people. We will for sure use again!

A wonderful weekend!

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a great location and comfortably sleeps 6 people. It was a beautiful weekend and we really enjoyed sitting out on the huge deck watching people in the water and soaking in the warm sun. The house is conveniently located so you can walk to the town nearby and to the river! It was a relaxing weekend and would love to come back :-)

Great weekend for family

  • 4 of 5

We had a great weekend at the Russian River with our family. The Perfect View is a great location, right on the river (although a bit of a drop to get to the water) with a wonderful views of the river and Monte Rio beach. It is right next door to a nice restaurant and a few blocks from another and grocery store. You can walk over the bridge to the old theater and other restaurants. We decided to rent kayaks in Guerneville, 3 miles further inland, and go up river from there to enjoy the many rope swings since we had done that part of river the year before, but the kids swam in front of house and explored Monte Rio beach area as well. The house sleeps 6 in 2 bedrooms and has 1 bathroom so worked for our family and would be great for a couple. The deck is large and was great for early morning tea watching the osprey grab a fish before the kids got up and for dinner in the evening watching last boaters head home. The house has been remodeled (new kitchen and bath) and there are a few minor parts that are still not completely finished - trim work in bedrooms around windows - but it did not bother us at all. We hope we can get up again next year.
