I rented Soleil for my 30th birthday celebration. The pictures of this home cannot do it justice. It has the perfect common area for entertaining, cooking and playing games, and is very open. The beds are comfortable and it is in a serene neighborhood. And the view! we couldn't get enough of having wine on the upstairs deck and staring into the trees. Everything was spotlessly clean. It is a short drive (3-5 minutes) to downtown Guerneville and a nice beach on the river. Also, take advantage of the abundant meyer lemon tree on the property! We used slices on our barbequed salmon. The pool and hot tub make this a place that you won't even need to leave. Great for an grown-up getaway or for families, too. Only caveat? bring your own cheese grater! Read more
I'm so glad you had such a great time at Soleil and appreciate the great review. We'll let the owner know about the cheese grater. I hope you'll come back and stay with us again. -Rachel, Russian River Getaways

My friends and I stayed in Soleil this past weekend and had such a lovely time. It's everything you'd want for a relaxing Russian River getaway -- peace, quiet, clean home, nice appliances, etc. We loved it and will be back! Read more
Soleil is awesome, and we're so glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for the good review, and please do come back soon. -Rachel

I would have easily given this home 5 stars but it was advertised as having a solar heated pool but we found out the solar had not worked since it was fired up. Disappointed that the water was so cold.
Also the refrigerator was not turned on early enough and when we loaded our food it was warm and stayed that way for 24 hours. We had to put our perishables in a cooler with ice.
On the positive this was a well kept home with lots of little touches that made it so comfy. The view was magnificent. I would rent again knowing in advance that I would not be swimming. Read more
The weather probably was not warm enough to warm the pool to where you wanted it. That's the thing with solar. With the pool's opening in May, we'll check it out to make sure it's all okay. We don't turn appliances off in between reservations, so the refrigerator should have been cold. Again, we'll check it out. Please next time call us so that we can get things working right while you're in the house. We're glad you enjoyed the house, and hope you'll come back. -Rachel

Russian River Getaways just always delivers - this house is gorgeous. The boys headed off and played golf while the girls spent most afternoons cooling in the pool as we were there during a heatwave. Soleil is modern and spanking clean with plenty of room to spread out. My only gripe is that there were no umbrella and loungers for around the pool (apart from those plastic venus-fly-trap things from the 70s). Also would have loved some loungers and umbrella on the deck upstairs where I spent evenings with a glass of vino watching the eagles hunt in the trees down below us - just spectacular. Read more
Soleil is a great home with a truly amazing view, and I'm so glad you enjoyed it so much. Thanks for sharing your joy. We'll pass the request for loungers and umbrella on to the owners. Come back again soon for more eagles! -Rachel, Russian River Getaways
The House in the Heavens
Left on 06/20/2013 for a stay in June 2013 | Runaway
We loved the house! But, there were a few things that would have been good to know prior to arriving. As you go up Summit Drive the house is not visible from the road. All you can see is a fence with the house number on it. The pool is 4 foot deep throughout (which was perfect for my son). There is not a staircase inside the house. To access the downstairs room you must use the outside stairs. This makes it nice if you are sharing the home with another couple but not so great for a family with smaller children. Both of the upstairs rooms have queen beds; the king bed is in the downstairs room. The home does not have air conditioning but there is usually a nice breeze to cool off the upstairs. None of these are negatives, but would have been good to know at the time of booking.
The home was clean, well equipped and in wonderful condition. The view is amazing! When we woke up and looked out the fog was below us...hence us naming it The House in the Heavens. The have a lovely garden complete with two garter snakes. We never saw them but the book in the house tells you they are there for insect control. If you are bringing a dog keep in mind that there is no grassy area and there is a drop off on the far side of the pool. We brought expens and gated off the access to the drop off area.
Will definitely go back

I spent 3 nights here with some girlfriends and we had a great time. The view is amazing. We did a lot of cooking and were so pleased with the kitchen set-up. We all noted how clean and new everything looked, and how comfy the beds were. We had a great time both indoors and outdoors. The only thing we would have changed is that the downstairs bedroom has a separate entrance (i.e. it is not internally connected to the upstairs, so you have to go outside and up the deck stairs to get upstairs), but that wasn't even a big deal. We'll definitely be back next summer.

Good views of the valley. The house seems was recently renovated. But spartan furnishings and bedding is much desired. Don't expect any luxury out this house beside the views. We have forgot our set pillow and paid for it with neck pain next day.
The extra propane tank for BBQ grill (which was very clean) was great.
The house has most of what you might need but just bear bones. No Dvd's.
The water in the pool was still cold in late May but that what you should expect.
Very steep climb to the house on a very narrow road. Make sure your car can handle it without spinning down the hill.
The only downside is very nasty neighbor who leaves there permanently and will call the cops on you if he feels you are disturbing him even it's only 9 pm. Read more
Each of our homes have their own flavor and charm. Some have many nick nacks scattered around and some are like Soleil, open and airy. It's important to look closely at the photographs we have of each home so that you can stay in one more suited to your likes. The drive up to the home is quite steep but the views when you get there more than make up for it!
We have spoken to the neighbor regarding the Sonoma County noise ordinance and we are very sorry if he bothered you. We do have an emergency line that you needed to call so that we could have assisted you in this situation.

Remote hilltop getaway with amazing views
Left on 09/03/2012 for a stay in August 2012 | Davemdm
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. Read more
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. Read more
Thanks for the kind words! We're so glad you have a good time at this wonderful home. -rkl

I can't say enough good things about Soleil. The location, excellent. The view, spectacular. The layout of the house, ideal for a a group of friends. The pool area, relaxing and picturesque. Everything was just perfect. I'll definitely be returning to Soleil in the future.

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!
