What Past Guests Are Saying
Remote hilltop getaway with amazing views
House was well equipped and nicely laid out, and just close enough to town that it feels convenient even though once you're there, you're out in the woods. The views are nothing short of incredible. It's a roller coaster ride getting up the hill, and the turnoff can be tough to catch at night, but easy once you've done it once. Very comfortable for four of us, would have been just fine with the full six. My only pet peeve is the lighting in the front walkway - there's none, which makes returning home a t night a little dicey.

We'll pass your concern about the lighting on to the owner. Thanks for the feedback. -Rachel, General Manager
Soleil was a wonderful place to stay for our mini-break from the city. The house is nice, new and clean. The pictures do a good job representing what it looks like. We cooked in both nights and enjoyed the open floor plan. The view is amazing from the deck and the pool - a nice treat at night with a glass of wine or in the morning for breakfast. It felt quiet and secluded and really allowed us to relax.
Beyond all expectations.
If you are considering this rental, stop right now and go no further. What an amazing discovery we had in Soleil. Stunning views, spacious, open plan upper floor,comfortable beds, and all the amenities we needed. The hot tub, pool, fabulous deck, and wonderful gardens were just icing on the cake. Located minutes from Guerneville and armstrong State Forest (redwoods), and a short drive to either the fantastic Sonoma wineries or the stunning parklands of the Sonoma coast. Great farmers' market on fridays in nearby Occidental, along with a culinary gem of a bistro, so the location really is ideal: a peaceful getaway with access to all you would want. Russian River Getaways was perfect to deal with. Soleil was, hands down, the best vacation rental we have ever had the pleasure to stay in.
The only thing to know in advance is that the neighborhood is perched on a steep grade road (17% or 450 feet climb over a half mile), so make sure your car is in low gear when arriving! It is a bit disconcerting the first time!
5 stars does not do this rental justice--add a "+" from us...
What a view!
This was the fourth time we have rented from Rrgetaways, but the first time we have stayed in Soleil, what a great house! Soleil was a very nicley updated and modern house, I'm a bit of a nut when it comes to clean rental homes, and this one was clean. The beds and bedding made me never want to get up in the morning. The upper floor is very bright and open with a great kitchen. We could have sat next to the pool and looked over the edge at the view forever. We will be back next year to Soleil house! I would like to say that the road going up to the house is not for the weak of heart, or a weak transmission! Be sure to get the directions to go up the back way, and it becomes more scary after dark when the deer come out to play on the road! Oh, and did I mention that the road is a two way street that is not much wider than a bike path in sections? But that being said, it was still that wonderful, we just didn't leave the house much!
Soleil is a lovely home - my family (6 adults) thoroughly enjoyed our stay. All bedrooms were spacious, as were the main living quarters. The best part of the house is the deck - from the deck, there are sweeping views. The house is located at the very top of a steep climb, which makes the view spectacular. We relaxed by the pool, and enjoyed the peace and quiet and the many hummingbirds who came for a visit. The pool isn't huge, but is more than adequate, and again, affords a wonderful view of the forest and river. I would definitely stay at Soleil again - highly recommended.

Wonderful home - sucky neighbors
We really enjoyed the home and the services of Russian River Getaways, but the neighbor put a big damper on our weekend by complaining about every little noise we made... even at 11:00am...
We also had a nasty note tacked on our gate, warning us to be quiet or the police would be called and we would be kicked out.
Response from Russian River Getaways - 07/05/2011
We're glad these guests enjoyed the house so much, and we're very sorry that the neighbor was difficult. We've spoken with him and his landlady, and have resolved this problem. That said, there is a County Ordinance for vacation rentals requiring quiet hours 10pm-9am, so we do ask guests to keep their voices quiet and hot tub jets on low after 10pm. -rkl

This house was amazing! I have rented from RR Getaways in the past by far this is the best house ever. The house is beautifully located in the redwoods with magnificent views. The bedrooms were nicely decorated and beds were extremely comfortable, especially the master bedorom with its own bath. The house is adequately equipped with appropriate kitchen utensils, just need to snoop around a bit to find them. One thing that was lacking were pot holders for anything coming out of the oven.
My partner and I rented this house with 3 other adults. The living room area is a bit tight for 5 adults, but we managed to make do while catching up on the worldly news.
I would highly recommend this house for families with older children or a group of friends traveling together. The upper deck does have glass panels which did not appear to be child friendly - also stairs going down to the pool area and hot tub. The pool looked inviting but we did not have it heated. The hot tub was fun - can comfortably fit 4 adults...just cleanliness was a concern. I informed RR Getaways and I am sure that has been addressed by now.
As far as the appliances - everything is practically brand new and green! I love that since I work for a company at an Ivy League University that bases its vision on sustainability!
If you looking for a great getaway that has spectacular views, this is the place to be! Can't wait to rent again!
