You can't beat the access to the river...lovely property on the outside. The inside needs some work but the owner is trying to take care of that. Our dog loved running down the path to the sandy beach access. We loved swimming everyday, canoe rides, and going into town. Nice quiet neighborhood. Easy walk to Monte Rio bridge. We will most definitely return next year!

We had a great time soaking in the sun on the lovely deck alongside the river. Nighttime fires on the deck under the stars was just magical!
Next time I'll visit in the summer season when the boats are available. Read more
Thank you so much for your description of your stay at Jujube. It is a wonderful home, and I'm so glad to know you enjoyed yourselves. Please do come back in the summer and enjoy the river. -Rachel, Russian River Getaways

Poor parking but great for just relaxing and enjoying the river. We never had to contact RRG because everything was clean and in order. For walks, this place is perfect, the restaurant down the road was first class with really great food. There wasn't much to do except relax and take long walks, but that's just what we were looking for. The little private beach was great too. We'll definitely be back. Read more
We're so glad you had such a good experience at Jujube and hope you'll be able to come back soon. Thanks for the review! -Rachel, Russian River Getaways
Great weekend getaway
Left on 10/17/2013 for a stay in October 2013 | temaries
Had a great time at Jujube. Needed a little getaway so booked a weekend away and it was perfect. My husband and I immediately relaxed as soon as we stepped in the door. Took full advantage of the canoe that came with the house and took our dog on her very first canoe ride along the Russian River. She had a blast! The little beach was nice too but would have liked if the trees on it were cut down a bit. It was hard to lay in the sun with a huge branch in your face. Also be aware that the neighbors are close and have pets so don't be surprised if a dog is running along the deck. We love dogs so it was no problem for us but if you are afraid of dogs, even little ones, just be aware. Other than that, love staying up on Russian River and using Russian River Getaways. This was our 3rd time renting through them and have always had a great, professional experience. Read more
We're glad you had a good time, and thanks for your review. There is no cleaning deposit to be refunded, only a cleaning fee that is paid to the housekeeper for cleaning the house. -Rachel

This Must Be Old-Dog Heaven
Left on 08/15/2013 for a stay in August 2013 | CLB
This was the vaction for my 13 1/2 year-old Lab-Pei. Some place just for us where the world slows down. There, it's all about the river--what could be more soul-satisfying than watching the old girl frolick in the water, then take a nap on the sandy, sun-dappled beech next to me while I read, listen to music and watch people (and ducks) paddle by all day? Yes--there may be a lot of stairs, and the cottage is old and could use some repair inside and out (I guess the same could be said about me!), but all of those things are more than made up for in the style and good vibes of this place. We want to be back there now, and hope we won't have to wait another full year for that to happen. Read more
We're so glad you enjoyed Jujube and hope you'll come back sooner rather than later. We have a great 3-for-2 winter discount Jan-Mar. We'll keep an eye out for needed repairs and report to the owner. Thanks for the review. -Rachel

Rented this home twice now over the years and it is just perfect. Everything you could want and the spot on the river and beach are beautiful. A sea otter was relaxing there each morning, so it gets his approval too. Relaxing, lovely place. Will do it again soon!
Relaxing & beautiful yet disappointing
Left on 03/21/2013 for a stay in March 2013 | J&K
The house was comfortable and accommodating, deck spacious and beautiful, with pristine river views. However, the lack of parking was grossly understated and only fit a very small car. The surrounding neighbors were not that friendly to visitors parking in front of their home. The beach area was unusable due to the extreme slope and the occupants in house a had 3 dogs, two of which were full grown pit bulls and you have to walk by them in pretty close proximity to get to your car. It was a bit uncomfortable and intimidating to say the least. Had the write-up divulged the pit bulls we would not have stayed there. Read more
There is parking for one car in front of the gate to the property. I've parked the company truck there easily, so I'm not sure what the problem was. We'll check it out to make sure nothing has changed. The river is not considered safe through April, and most river accesses are not useable. The neighbor's fence is wire, so you can see their dogs, but they are working on putting up board fencing this month, so it should be in place soon. -Rachel

This spot in NorCal exceeded our expectations!
Left on 11/01/2012 for a stay in October 2012 | Rich & Alissa
We stayed at JuJube for our honeymoon, and could not have asked for a better spot! The house was a much needed rustic getaway! We loved the view from the deck, walking down to the beach every day, and relaxing in the house with the breeze flowing in from the opened french doors!
The location could not have been better. In just one week we were able to enjoy the ocean, redwood forest, wine country, river, and local small towns. The natural beauty of the area left us breathless every day. There are so many different types of nature that can be enjoyed within just a short drive from Jujube.
I would absolutely recommend taking a week (or even two) to enjoy this area of NorCal with JuJube as the perfect home base! We cannot wait to come back!

We recently spent a week at Jujube from July 27th to august 3rd. It was
a great time for us and our dogs. The days and nights were so quiet and peaceful. The water was perfect for swimming in which our two labs indulged themselves nearly all the time we spent there. The beach was wonderful with only sand and no rocks.
The house was very clean and comfortable as well. It was a nice 'home' away from home. My wife and I thought the trip was a great relaxing vacation and the Jujube house was a major part of that.
I highly recommend the house and area to others considering the Russian River.
Quiet and relaxing getaway, thank you!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Jujube and would come back for another visit. We had 2 small complaints about this vacation rental.
Upon arriving, there was an odor of stale cigarette smoke in the home. Being 7 months pregnant may have caused me to be more sensitive to this & after airing every room out it seemed less of an annoyance. The other issue was parking. There is very little room to park along the street, leaving even less room to actually exit your vehicle. This seems to be a problem in the entire area. An additional parking area, even if it required a short walk, would have made our stay more pleasant. Read more
We'll check out the smell - odd. Parking is an issue on the street in many places along the river. Jujube has its own parking space in front of the gate to the house. -Rachel, general manager

Getting away like this sure puts life in perspective.
Our Jujube spot was tastefully decorated and homey. Everything was so comfortable and convenient - like the lawn behind us and the very short path to our little, isolated sandy beach with our canoe to use at leisure.
Our "only" kink was the near smoke out from the oven that "looked" clean but filled the entire kitchen and the upper part of the living room up with billows of smoke which caused us to have to open everything up and put the fan on and leave to the outside for a opulent hour because of our asthma. ...but they sent maintenance right over and she found the problem and got us back up and running so we could bake our cookies.
We will know to stay longer than 2 days next time ; ) Read more
We're so glad you enjoyed Jujube so much. Please come back and visit us again soon. -General Manager

This was the best vacation my husband and I have ever been on. The cabin was wonderful in every way. We swam, canoed, paddle boated and sat on the back porch for hours on end looking at heaven. We will make this our yearly retreat. Our dog was in heaven too! Thank You for such a wonderful time!

We loved this place! I't so peaceful and serene. Loved and appreciated every last detail the owner provided including a canoe and paddle boat. Our dog, a beagle mix, named Woody got to channel his inner platypus! lol! We couldn't keep him out of the river... We live in the east bay and are so sick of our summers being socked in with fog, we were desperate for a true summer vacation, well the fog burned off by 10:00 am and it was a lovely 83 degrees all afternoon. Perfect for being on the private beach all afternoon. Bbq avery night and even made s'mores. I think we'll make this a yearly tradition! Thanks, Karen Mark, Millie and Woody

Spent a weekend at this great cottage with a great deck/patio with a view of the river. And the semi-private beach access was fantastic. We spent time each day down on the beach and loved our time spent on the Russian River. Monte Rio is a sleepy town, but exactly what we needed for our get away weekend!

This was a surprise trip for my husband to celebrate a major accomplishment and to get some much needed R & R. We brought our two aussies with us as well. Very relaxing. Enjoyed the deck and the fact that the river is just a stone or two throw away. I picked it because of the private access to the river. The dogs could not stay away from the river and spent most of their time swimming and playing, and swimming...did I say swimming? Loved the house; however, having the responsibility of the renters cleaning dishes before they leave isn't a very good idea as the dishes we used weren't very clean and I had to clean a few prior to using them. I love how easy it was to check-in - go to the place and use the keyless entry. Thanks for a great time! Read more
So happy these folks enjoy their stay at this home. People do wash their own dishes, and most people do a good job. Our cleaners do a general check of dishes, but they don't have the time to inspect every dish. Luckily, washing a few dishes here was not enough to ruin their vacation! -rkl

Beautiful setting shabby not so chic house
Left on 06/15/2011 for a stay in May 2011 | RLDEP
Positives: Great setting, with view of the river. Quiet. Sunny. Nice river beach. Clean (except rugs, which are stained. Great kitchen (well supplied, modern). Shower and bath tub are modern with good water pressure. Nice and clean spa outdoors, with great views.
Negative: The house needs to be painted and updated; the floors are old and stained. Carpets stained (If it is a pet friendly property avoid carpets!). Very small TV set. The yard needs upkeep and be more inviting (prune, take out weeds, cut grass).

Perfect retreat for us and our dog. Great layout. Loved the bed and linens. Two sinks in the bathroom = luxury! Fabulous porch and view. The river was gentle. The beach was great. We canoed, napped and hung out. It was terrific!
I could stay there forever!

My wife and I stayed in Jujube for a piece of our honeymoon. The weather wasn't the best but the hot tub took our minds off that. The small towns around the cottage are really cool. We visited the ocean in Jenner which was only about a 15 minute beautiful drive. The place was just amazing, and we will always remember this wonderful place.

My Girlfriend and I were looking for a relaxing weekend away from typical vacation spots. We found this vacation home online and were verry happy with what we got. It was very quiet and relaxing.

Booking the cottage with Russian River Getaways was simple, as was checking in. Given that this is somebody's house, I was expecting something more than just being given keys and told, "Have fun!". The home, Jujube, was fantastic. It has astonishing views and is very relaxing. It's only 15 minutes from the coast, the redwoods, wine tasting, and shopping. The house is slightly inaccessible, as parking on the street it's on is a little hard to come by, and then there are multiple gates, stairs, and dirt to cross to get to the front door. While this is great for privacy, it makes large luggage and multiple trips from the car not fun. I also might not recommend this home in very cold or very warm months. Temperature control in the home is lacking. However, I would still highly recommend this company and this home, and would love to come visit again.

Beautiful and relaxing vacation.

The service was great. We arrived into town a few hours early but the staff
allowed us to get our place since it was ready even though it was before the
check in time.we had such a good time that we decided to stay an extra night,
which was easy to do...I called the office and they took care of the paperwork
and ok'd our extra night. The home is great, theres everything imaginable that
we needed, a hot tub, barbeque, tv's awesome bed and so on...
The location is perfect for outdoor type of people, the house has river beach
access and a canoe so you dont have to travel to enjoy the river. What I liked
the best were the free night we got, the least........i'll have to think about it and
i'll get back to you :)

Respite by the River
Left on 10/22/2009 for a stay in October 2009 | norahs4700
My husband and I really needed to get away. We spent two nights at Jujube. The cottage is charming and has many updates. The wood burning stove is very efficient - but remember to bring kindling, firewood and newspaper. The views of the river were so relaxing, you could see the river from every room, even the bathroom.
Our only issue was lack of privacy. We enjoyed the hot tub, but it was within viewing of the river. When we relax and tub we like total privacy, but if that's not an issue for you, the location of the hot tub was beautiful.
We'd go again.
A peaceful retreat!

hello, we, (2) adults (1) little sweet dog) had a very enjoyable time....the home is well cared for and attention to details to make the guests feel special...the small private beach, the canoe, the hot tub (this is maintained to perfection)the quiet setting, all made for a most relaxing time.
We look forward to going back to JuJube...bikes would have been nice to ride....just a thought
