What Past Guests Are Saying
Fabulous property...family friendly, great location, lots of spa
This is a lovely rental property. All the amenities you could ask for. Great kitchen with good equipment. Large dining table (inside and out) and living room makes it great for family gathering. Fabulous outdoor space for kids to run around, play croquet, or for adults to relax in the garden or outdoor balcony, including covered seating for rainy days. Well-sized bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms make it easy for a large group. Great location - close to redwoods, coast, wine country and more. Safeway just down the road, but the house location is private and quiet. we were there for a wedding in Guerneville, and it was close enough to everything, but still felt like a private retreat. Very responsive rental agency as well.
great weekend getaway house
had a great time in the Russian River area for a weekend of wine tasting, and Guerneville is a fun little town. House was excellent for our group, as we like to cook breakfast & dinner at home. Slept 7 adults just fine.
Why Vegas? Why not Guerneville?
Now, before you answer this question, vacation in Guerneville.
Four couples decided to and that's what inspired this review...
I will keep this short and sweet because I'm writing this on NYE; two hours post celebration. Russian River Getaways and "xyz" house are both phenomenal. I won't even get into the particulars as to why this is truth, just trust me that it's fact.
Incredible house. Dewy, crystal clearer mornings. Ice cold evenings, with dead silence. The best bottles of wine taste better. Conversations are more meaningful. Friends seem and are more genuine. This area brings out the best of people, and that's what I'm looking for in an NYE. The best people.
Many thanks to the home owner and RRG for making this time so special.
Penn Valley, CA
Beautiful place - love the location. In the woods, yet close to
Eight of us stayed at the house for the Russian River Blues Festival. Booking was so easy. Beautiful location, well equipped, Loved the garden setting and deck. What a treat to have fresh veggies from the garden! Enjoyed the hot tub too. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!
West Bloomfield, Michigan
More than we expected.
The home more than met our needs. The home was comfortable and clean. What we did not expect was the great landscaping and the garden. The note on the wall said that we could pick anything that was ripe. At our home in Michigan we garden and and enjoy fresh produce during the summer months. We felt right at home on our vacation in California.
Nye getaway in a cozy cabin with friends.
The home was clean and spacious. We had 7 people total at the house for a long NYE weekend. The view of the vineyard was my favorite...watching the fog roll in was an evening treat for us all. Can't wait to rent this space in the summer!
Response from Russian River Getaways - 01/25/2012
This is an awesome house, and we're so glad you enjoyed it. Please do come back this summer. It's only a mile to downtown Guerneville and Johnson's Beach - both hoppin' in the summertime. -rkl
Great time at Vineyard View
We had a small pre-Thanksgiving with friends at Vineyard View and it was perfect. Beautiful house that is nicely furnished and well-stocked for cooking. The guys enjoyed an epic 4-hour croquet tournament on the line, while the ladies drank their wine by the fire. The view of the vineyards and mountains are fantastic. The booking process was also very smooth and hassle-free.
Response from Russian River Getaways - 12/22/2011
This is a gorgeous house, and we're so glad you enjoyed your stay there. We're also happy to have provided a good customer service experience. Thanks for the positive words, and we hope you come stay with us again! -rkl

Russian River Town Home
The house location is a little hard to find and it's not close to anything. The downtown Gurneville have nothing much.
The house itself is very nice. The beds are comfortable. But the back yard is unfinished and the garage needs to be better organized because it look undone.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay and we spend most of the time at home and the hot tub is great.
Response from Russian River Getaways - 10/30/2011
This is such an odd review for this house. Guerneville is a very active and vibrant small town. In fact, after several years of recession induced downsizing, we have a bunch of new and thriving businesses, including a wine bar, a spa, and the newly re-opened and revitalized historic River Theater, so whaaaat? Anyway, Vineyard View is one of a few homes that is walking distance to town, only one flat mile. There is a small patch at the very back of the back yard that is dirt, only because the owner is trying to decide what to do with it. Not sure why the garage would be important to guests, and is undone because that is the nature of garages. -rkl
Beautiful, well stocked house with comfortable furnishings in a convenient location. Definitely a desirable rental. Some suggested improvements: Make sure the gas on the stove is completely turned off! There was an overpowering smell when we arrived and we didn't realize it was the cooktop until the next day when we noticed a burner partially turned on (but not lit). Once we turned it off and aired out the house, all was well. Also it would greatly add to the property if the backyard (towards the vineyard) was finished. As is, it is very unsightly and people have not cleaned up after their dogs. I would not feel comfortable allowing small children back there. It detracted from the rest of the yard which is truly special and lovely. Thank you.
Ideal Family Retreat Home
This beautiful home met all of our needs. The toddler loved the large sunny and grassy yard and kept the adults busy pushing him in the swing. The adults raved about the lush gardens, bountiful fruit and vegetable crops, and the fabulous view from the patio deck. What a treat it was to have fresh boysenberries available at our pleasure. During our stay the temperatures were relatively mild for summer, with early morning coastal fog retreating by 11:00 am. Therefore, the heat didn't present a problem for us. We do agree that some window protection would be useful for that intense afternoon sun which shines on the large western facing windows. (Roller shades would help.) The owner of this home has clearly made an effort to make this an ideal home for any family's retreat.
Extremely well equipped house with beautiful deck & garden.
The house was in the most beautiful quiet location yet still within reach of the amenities of Guerneville.
Every thing was good except the heat in the afternoon.
Every thing was good and I will recommend that to every one. The changes that I would like to see:
Drapes to cover the sun on west side of the house so that the heat will not be that fierce.
It is a 3 bedroom not 4 unless you change the beds in the basement.
Every thing else is great.
Response from Russian River Getaways - 07/16/2011
The website says very clearly that the 4th bedroom has a convertible bed, so this should have been no surprise. Also, this is not a basement, but a lower level. -rkl
Stunning Views and Gorgeous Gardens
We had a family reunion here and loved the house. The gardens are simply beautiful and we loved having our morning coffee on the deck overlooking the vineyards. The house was comfortable and very beautifully decorated. The kitchen was really well stocked and everything worked well. We were four couples in the house, so the only disappointment was that the trundle in the lower floor was very uncomfortable for two. It would be helpful to have a king mattress cover and linens to join the two mattresses for couples staying there. Other than that, the house was just perfect.

fantastic 50th birthday/mothers day celebration spent with famil
vineyardview home was the perfect place to celebrate a special occasion. The house was fantastic with gorgeous views out every window.We spent a lot of time enjoying the garden landscape and views of the vineyards from the deck.The owner has many special touches throughout that we appreciated. We were very content and comfortable. Thankyou and we can't wait to come back!!!
Perfect tucked-away getaway for a weekend of fun
I stayed at vineyard view (yes, there actually is a vineyard in the back!) with 7 other friends for a birthday weekend. The house exceeded our expectations. It was spotless and absolutely beautiful, with enough rooms for everyone to have private space.
It's not far from anything, but remote enough where you're not on a main road, or bothered by winery traffic. If you were wine tasting, I would recommend bicycles, as it was 2+ miles to walk to the closest one.
I highly recommend this home to anyone looking to get away- it's big, though, and designed for a group.
vineyard view is a really lovely house -- very peaceful with a large lawn and swing out back, great hot tub, beautiful interior, and is kid-friendly. we really lucked out.
Great reunion house
We had a great time. The house suited our needs. All the bedrooms were very comfortable. The downstairs room, did have some hard mattresses. The kitchen had everything we needed. We appreciated having tp and cleaning supplies as part of the house. We did wish that we could have walked through the vineyards behind the house but the fence had no gate.
Thanks very much!
the fab four
we came to vineyard view for a girls weekend, four architects. I guess youmight say that we are a picky group. We needed four separate bedrooms which vineyard view provided. The furnishings are comfortable and stlish, super comfy beds and great outdoor areas on the deck and back yard for eating, driking and gabbing. The area is a little quiet, but that was fine with us. The kitchen was well appointed, everyting was new or in great condition. No complaints, We had a great time!
Relaxing fun time
The house, its location and the views from the deck are great! It's a wonderful location - close to the state park with huge redwoods and lots of great trails (we went trail running one morning) and close to town with great restaurants and spas. Everyone loved staying there and it worked well for me and my girl friends for a relaxing fun weekend. Check-in was easy and the house is decorated nicely and very clean.
My other comment is that the management company should work on how they present the "rules" of the house. Everything was "no this" or "don't do this". I assume they have had problems with people partying and making too much noise, but the tone of the rules posted at the house and the guidelines the management company sends you immediately after making your reservation is less than inviting and made me feel a little on eggshells over the weekend.
Response from Russian River Getaways - 06/04/2010
So glad this group enjoyed this beautiful home. Just a word on the rules---the rentals are all subject to rental agreements and that means a contract drafted to meet legal requirements. So the rules all have to be spelled out definitively. Our rules are pretty much the standard rules for all professional management companies, which are drafted by lawyers. We don't mean to be off-putting, but the rules are very important to the ability to be able to rent these homes as vacation rentals.
Loveley weekend overall
This was a three-generation family weekend to celebrate grandma's birthday and mother's day. The property and views were really magnificent. It was so peaceful and relaxing swinging in hammock! The well appointed kitchen and nice grill were great for preparing two fantastic dinners. The only thing that really kept this from being the perfect weekend was the sofabed downstairs. It's really brutal even when using the comforter as a mattress topper. The description for the home should say "sleeps 8, but sleeps 6 comfortably." Had we known, we would have brought an air bed.
Response from Russian River Getaways - 06/04/2010
Thank you so much for your feedback. The owner strives for perfection,so he has replaced that sofa-bed with a brand new trundle bed with excellent mattresses. This bed can be used as two singles or consolidated as a king.
Los Angeles, CA
Nicely furnished and have everything you need for a getaway week
The VINEYARD VIEW is great. The house is nicely furnished and the hammock
is great on a cool day. The only complaint I have was the two neighbors were
cutting the grass all weekend.
Vineyard View is a lovely home in a serene and beautiful setting
Our whole group loved the home. My favorite part was the spacious backyard
overlooking the vineyards and mountains. Also, the home itself was adorable
with the perfect amount of space. Nice and quiet location. The hot tub was
great, although it seemed to have way too much chlorine in it. Also, I'm
curious if the grass in the yard is sprayed with chemicals. I few of us layed in
the grass, and after a half hour or so the parts of our bodies that were
touching the grass got a burning and itchy sensation....very bizarre. I would
definitely return to Vineyard View; it's a special place for a getaway!
Response from Russian River Getaways - 05/04/2010
Thank you so much for the feedback. Please know that no chemicals are used on the lawn; all weeds are hand-pulled. So you must have had an allergic reaction to something growing---nature does that sometimes!
Los Gatos, CA
We loved it
Great place to stay, close to town, beds were very comfortable and the gounds and view is amazing!
Great property with a view and convenience
The house has great western exposure overlooking a vinyard and small, forested mountian. Perfect for late morning and all afternoon sun. Also a great place to visit with friends.
Marin County, CA
Best. Weekend. EVER.
First time Russian Riverer. We had a bachelorette weekend there, Fri-Sun. We arrived to a gorgeously landscaped front garden (I'm a landscape architect and so was one of the other guests--we were very impressed with plant selection, placement, and overall maintenance). There was plenty of parking for all of us, and the house was on a very safe, quiet street. As we walked in to the back garden, we were blown away by the view. I don't remember the ad saying there was a frickin mountain in the back. Unbelievable.
The house was clean, up-to-date, and had beautiful trendy decor. The kitchen was stocked (dish-wise), and we were delighted to see someone before us had left some top shelf tequila. The living room and dining area both had music/ipod players, which was a must for our dance party. The bedrooms all had plush linens and lots of storage.
The secret downstairs playroom was a bonus, and allowed for our karaoke contest. The spa was large enough for all of us (7), and we even used the croquet set on the huge lawn.
We took a short ride on the bikes in the garage to the beach, and picked blackberries on the hill across the driveway and made fresh cobbler.
It was like a weekend out of Sunset magazine. When you don't have to worry about the place you are staying in, or what could be better about it, you can focus on the friends and food and fun. The house could not have been better, which is why it was the best weekend ever.
Nice House but Needs an Accurate Descriptionn
The house was well maintained and clean. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, glassware and pots and pan.
I was disappointed in the location. I was under the impression the house was near Korbel Winery. Maybe the vineyard behind the house belongs to Korbel but this was not what was expected.
Bedrooms - this is really a 3 bedroom house (one of which is a loft that is open to the living room). The other room they call a bedroom is a lower level room that is cold and dark - more like a basement rec room. Without a bathroom on the lower level it really is stretching to call this room the 4th bedroom.
The house is nice but the description of the house should be more accurate.
Response from Russian River Getaways - 07/28/2009
I have looked all over the house webpage on our site and I can't find anything that says this home is next to Korbel. In fact, the vineyards are owned by Korbel, but that fact isn't mentioned. If there is another site that has mistaken information, we'd sure like to know so we can correct it.
The owner has now added more heat to the downstairs rec room which acts as the fourth bedroom. It will now be toasty and warm!
Las Vegas, NV
Winter Wineland '09
Four couples from Vegas, Fresno, and San Fran all met for a wonderful weekend of wine tasting. The house was perfect. The view of the vineyard was amazing, especially first thing in the morning with a cup of coffee. We loved the hot tub.
If you are looking for privacy this is not really the house for you. The neighbors are very close, I don't think that we had any problems with them but we were hoping for something a little more away from others. The bedrooms don't get the most privacy either. Upstairs master is an open loft...
Overall an excellent trip, we would definitely consider renting again!
Response from Russian River Getaways - 07/28/2009
The loft bedroom is now completely walled, so there is no longer a privacy issue.
