the house is spacious and very beautiful... the best part was the swimming pool to keep cool.kids had the best time. the river isn't exactly to close to carry the 2 man kayak because it was to heavy/// but once we got there the river was awesome. we took a drive to jenner and it was freezing. so we decided to go back to our river by the house and it was beautiful.this time we took floats and a umbrella and they also have awesome beach chairs we spent the day there it was the best. this house had everything to offer and more.i would like to come back in aug. also the management company was great it was easy breezy. one thing I was not to happy about when we got there and my husband and I were unpacking my kids were getting ready to go in the pool because it was so hot!!!the pool people came by and were there about 1 hour it was cool that she checked everything for us but we were ready to start our vacation but the kids had to wait to swim. so I think they should be there before 3 oclock check in and be gone so this wont be uncomfortable,plus for the price you want to settle in and start enjoying the pool. like I said we were settled in but we had to wait around. not cool Read more
Thanks so much for the great review and all those stars! Sunny Skies is a fun house, so close to lots of things to do. We are sorry about that hour wait for the pool, but pools are fickle things, and it's important to get it right so everything's safe. We do hope you'll be back with us again soon -Rachel, Russian River Getaways
Great house and great location

We stayed at Sunny Skies for a long weekend, and loved the house and the location. Everything is on one level so it was ideal for us and our 2 kids. The river is only 1.5 blocks away, and it is a short drive into town. We would definitely rent this house again!
perfect getaway from the city

we always enjoy to go over there with our kids..so relaxing and away from stress.
very nice stay
Left on 10/11/2011 for a stay in September 2011 | chris
very clean and comfortable house. I was a bit suprised to learn the gas grill was replaced by a mini-weber coal grill. I phoned the managers unit immediately and was told the situation would be fixed right away. Unfortunately, I didn't receive a call until the next afternoon. The owner of the unit arrived with a new gas grill, which I thought was very accomidating. All in all the the house was wonderful. The grounds could have been better maintained. I did like it enough to return again. Read more
Glad these folks enjoyed this home. The mini-weber was there to give them a grill because the old gas grill went out right before they arrived. We did the best we could to get the new grill to them asap. We did call them back that day to let them know what the plan was, so perhaps they did not get the message. The grounds are maintained regularly, but are not super landscaped outside of the deck, pool, hot tub that fills most of the yard. -rkl
Lovely, Lazy, Labor Day!

We had a wonderful, relaxing stay over the Labor Day weekend with some of our grown children and our furry child! House was perfect for our needs...lazed at the pool every afternoon...headed down to the river so the dog could have a swim...Bbq on the deck in the evening. House was spacious and clean, kitchen had everything we needed, we couldn't fault anything.
We've used Rrgetaways for 5 or 6 years now and can't say enough good thing about them. See you next year!

We rented the house for a weekend. The house was relatively clean (backyard needs some weeds puling and cleaning. It is a nice house with some wear and tear from so many guests I guess. Maybe we expected more for the money but overall was OK. The reason we rented this house (one of the most pricier in the area) is because of the pool. The kids had fun in the pool and we did have a nice week-end. Read more

we love this light open house with this great warm pool on the deck. the hot tub is a plus but it was too hot in July to use it. the living room was very open and friendly. great room. Just missing the air conditionner and it would be a perfect house. the kids had so much fun in the pool and we reaaly enjoyed your 2 canoe kayaks on the river...heavy and hard to carry though but that is part of the sport!!! thank you so much for this wonderful peaceful week.

Great overall vacation

We really enjoyed Sunny Skies. The place was big and the pool was great. It would have been nice if they had cable. But, overall, I would rent it again. Read more
This home definitely has cable, and when we investigated, we found that there was a universal outage in town which we could found out and let these folks know at the time, if they had called us. -rkl

Having rented smaller homes/cabins for me, my husband, and 2 dogs through RR Getaways, we needed a bigger place for my sister and her family's visit. The size of this house was perfect for all of us. The pool, pool toys, hot tub, kayaks, ping pong table, and foosball table were perfect amenities for 2 teenagers (and the adults too). We couldn't have had a better time (except for rain in June?). The bottle of wine left by the homeowners was thoughtful and appreciated. Thank you for sharing your lovely home!
The hot tub made the whole trip worth while!

The house was clean and just as we expected per the pictures on the website. All the amenaties were a great addition to the home. We all loved it! The pool could had been a little warmer. More available towels would have been nice for the pool and hottub. Read more
We so glad these guests enjoyed Sunny Skies. The pool is solar heated and we've had a cool May. We don't provide pool/hot tub towels because there isn't enough time to wash and dry them between bookings. Please bring your own! rkl

The linens really need to be replaced. Sheets were old and dirty. Otherwise, the place was great. Read more
This is a wonderful house, and we strive to keep it up to snuff. The sheets are being replaced, as they were a little past their prime. However, they were clean and not stained, so maybe it was the off-white color that made these folks think "dirty." --rkl

We had a wonderful, relaxing Feb. weekend at Sunny Skies. The weather was chilly, which was perfect for making a fire or sitting in the hot tub. The house is big, and was very clean when we arrived (we left comments on 1-2 items that needed fixing). We look forward to returning when the weather is warmer and we can enjoy the pool.
The big drawback for us was the backyard, nondeck area was very dark (we ended up walking our dog around the neighborhood at night), as were the front stairs (we couldn't find any lights); the issue was magnified as we negotiated the stairs in the rain. Also, at the time of our rental the downstairs game area was open to the garage (under construction?), which was chilly in the winter.

We had 2 great days at the house. Very Clean! Very comfy! Spacy! We loved the house. There was a few things like a fan in one bedroom didn't work, the table sheets were dirty with animal hair, and the floor in master-bedroom was making very loud noise. We had a baby at the same room, so it was inconvenient. Otherwise great house. One more thing -- check out is too early. It feels like we pay for 3 days (including all fees and taxes). Read more
Sorry but if we have a later check-out we would need a later check-in and everyone would complain about that. We need four hours to get the house ready for the next guests. We'll definitely make sure the fan in that bedrooms works. Not sure what table sheets are, but they shouldn't have animal hair on them for sure. We'll check out that creakiness in the master bedroom---first time we heard about this.

Rr Getaways is one of the most professional and personable rental companies I have ever had the pleasure of doing busines with. Sunny Skies is a great, large and comfortable residence with a terrific pool and patio area.
Ahhh, relaxing !!!
Left on 08/01/2010 for a stay in June 2010 | Busy Mom
A bit difficult to find as trees cover street signs. Upon our
arrival, the barbeque had been left on, and very hot. Also,
a broken ceiling fan light fixture with jagged glass. Other than these initial findings, we had a wonderful, relaxing stay. Travelling with with three teenagers can be challenging but they all loved the pool, hot tub and ping pong table, internet access, big screen tv and seperate bedrooms. We were disappointed that the river wasn't as
close as described. All in all we loved our stay and will definitely return again.
A perfect stay at a perfect home!

Wow! That is the one word I would use to sum up our experience at Sunny Skies! Everything was perfect! From the bottle of Pinot Noir from the owners to greet me, to the birds singing in the trees every morning, to the beautiful, crystal clear swimming pool, I couldn't have found a more perfect location to celebrate my 40th birthday. It was everything I hoped it to be and so much more! The photos on the website don't do this home justice! I was much bigger and nicer than we had expected and we expected a lot!
There were six of us and we had more than enough room for us all. We swam in the morning, went to the river in the afternoon, and soaked in the hot tub in the evenings while barbecuing on the gorgeous deck. Aaaah! Now, that's livin'! I loved the inner tubes! My friends and I linked feet and floated down the river on the three tubes provided, while my son and his girlfriend kayaked in the double and had a fabulous time. We joked about how they would have to forcibly remove us from the house when our time was up!
The basement game room with ping pong and fooseball was a blast, too! Really, everything was perfect. The pool...sigh. I can guarantee you will have the time of your life if you book Sunny Skies. Sure, it's a bit more pricey than the other homes but the pool is so worth it! When you think about it, it really is a great deal. Divide the total cost by the number of people and you're getting an amzing bargain! Just don't book when I want to go, okay? :)
Thank you Russian River Getaways for yet another memorable vacation in one of your beautiful homes. We will Defintely be back! And thanks to the owners for providing such a beautiful home to get away to.
Good house with some issues
Left on 01/22/2010 for a stay in December 2009 | RR traveler
We didn't have enough toilet paper, or kitchen towel were none.
Towels they supply were bare minimum qty so that we needed to wash and
dry everyday. Not enough to take a hot tub outside and shower inside with
dry towel. I wish they had enough towels in the closet.
The worst part was beds with dog smell.
it was not horrible but noticeable.
In details,, bed in master bedroom had dog smell.... and The 2 twins in one
of the bedrooms had black dog hairs on the sheets which we needed to
wash again to feel OK about sleeping.
Other than that, house was clean, functioning, and nice layout for large
party to stay.
At the end of the trip, we all had good time and appreciate the owner to
offer this house for renting.
We appreciate the feedback, but most of the "issues" are a failure on the part of the guest to read the rental contract. We provide two rolls of t.p. per bathroom, one set of bath towels per person, and we ask that guests bring towels for the hot tub/pool. Bath towels are not allowed to leave the house. Excess laundry makes it impossible for the housekeepers to maintain their cleaning schedules.
There were no dogs at this house since September---with many bookings in-between--- so a dog odor and dog hair would have been impossible.

This was a great location, central to the coast and wine country and just outside of Guerneville which proved to be a very colorful and fun town. The home was clean and well suited for 3 couples. The pool was closed but we thouroughly enjoyed the hot tub and ping pong table. We were all a little perplexed that the house came with exactly 6 bath towels and found the requirement to do all our dishes and unload the dishwasher prior to leaving a bit harsh. They actully threatened a fine if dishes were left in the dishwasher even if they were clean. "House keeping does not do dishes" and then they ask that you start a load of laundry before you leave to help house keeping out. Being unable to leave for the airport becasue the dishwasher is still runing was a bit of a burden when renting a vacation home and paying for cleaning services. Read more
Thanks for these kind comments. We have decided to change our policy about having to empty the dishwasher. In the future we will ask only that the guests begin running the dishwasher before they leave.

Thanks so much for a great Russian River experience. Sunny Skies was so
comfortable, and it was great having a pool, hot tub, decks, barbecue, ping
pong table, games and kayaks. We were out on the water everyday, and my
kids had a ball. The pool is perfect for young kids as it has a shallow end and
isn't huge. I did a lot of cooking in the lovely kitchen, which is right off the
upper deck. It's a nice walk to the water, and the community there was very
friendly. RR Getaways was also very nice to work with! Thanks!

House and amenities were great. Service was good. Very comfortable and homey. Pool could have been a little cleaner. Yard was well groomed and decks were well taken care of. We plan on returning next year. I liked the kayaks and the closeness of the river.

me and my family decided to get out of town the last weekend in august. i rented sunny skies because of the large deck areas, we could eat and cook out side. my 2 grandchildren, my son and his wife and my other son spent hours in the pool, playing pingpong and just enjoyed the quiet neighborhood. we didn't hear a car go by or any noise. my 2 sons took the kyacks down to the river in the evening. my 2 dogs even just kicked back and layed out on the deck, they never barked once!!! the house was very clean, everything we needed. we also enjoyed the bottle of wine left for us. the only thing i didn't check before was airconditioning, but the fans cooled the house off, so it was still fine.overall we would go back again and had a wonderful family time.
thanks again, sonja erikson and my sons,
