“Great week spent at the Blue Jay!”
Had a wonderful time spending some great quality time with the family at the Blue Jay. The location is wonderful for those with small children; there's a park, a pee wee golf just down the street. The kitchen upgrades are fantastic and the hot tub topped it off. Only bummer was that the dishwasher was broken from the previous tenants and we had to wash the dishes by hand.
“Good location, not so good beds!”
The staff was extremely nice and accommodating. The location was great! However the bed in the master bedroom seriously needs to be replaced. We enjoyed our stay and had a good time. FYI there are so many rules at this location. If I had read them all, I would not have gotten out of the house. Each rule came with a threat if it wasn't followed. Example- if you overflow the hot tub you will be charged. I just treated the house as if it were mine and didn't take time to read. The pages of rules.
Response from the manager Thank you for your review. Many times, we find bed comfort is a matter of taste, but we'll look into the situation and correct it, if needed. Rules are generally written for the smaller percentage who need some guidance, so we have to do that. We definitely appreciate guests who know how to treat a vacation home, so we do hope you'll come back and stay with us again! -Rachel, Russian River Getaways
The property was nice , and clean inside .Alot a value for the price.We went in June weather was hot !The ceiling fans in living room and bed room did not work propely and repairs or isssues wouldnt get done on our stay- Hot tub worked well and was clean.Noise level from area was low very quite no issues-short walk into town, Stairs going up are steep ,but wide .Down stairs rooms very steep and narrow good for kids and youths. Overall it was a good stay-Only one local store Safeway nightmare to get in and out go early! no staff -long lines.
It was a perfect location within walking distance to town. The house was wonderful and everything you would expect from a river house. We really enjoyed the modern updates and the hot tub. The view from the house was great, but we were not able to enjoy it from inside the house because all of the blinds were broken and would not go up. My one recommendation is to get all of the blinds repaired.
Response from the manager Thanks so much for your review of Blue Jay. It is a great home in a great location, and we're glad you enjoyed it. We will get right on the repair of the blinds and apologize for the inconvenience. -Rachel
“Quiet and accommodating!”
So this is a house that I would purchase to live in! So accommodating and perfect for three different couples. There is a private cottage, a downstairs "suite" and an upstairs bed/bath that was perfect for all of us and provided much needed privacy. We all agreed that we would fight over this property if it were to come on the market. The backyard was amazing and fully equipped with a hot tub. The house was in pristine condition, not a spec of dust in sight. The river was a super close walk and the town was the same. I highly recommend this house for any type of vacation. One caveat is that the rules are pretty strict, e.g. if you leave a belonging you have to pay a fine to retrieve it. With that being said it was a 5star experience! Yay Guernville!
Response from the manager Thanks so much for the great review. This is an awesome house that really lets you enjoy the best of Guerneville. If you leave a belonging, we ask you to pay to ship it, which seems reasonable, considering we pay someone to go to the house to retrieve it for you, pack it up and take it to the post. -Rachel
“a cozy but dirty vacstion house”
I first would like to say that I very much enjoyed our vacation at The Blue Jay Hideaway because my family an friends were there to celebrate all together. With that being said I do have to report that the house was smaller than it looked in the pictures, the whole house was filled with dust and there was a strong smell of mold in the downstairs bathroom. I did expect the house to be smaller than the pictures because thats how it works right however the dust was inch thick in some places, and if you jumped dust was flying up from the floor. The downstairs bathroom had mold and water damage on the door frame with was very strong smell of mold and when I called RussianRiverGetaways to let them know, the lady was rude to me an said,`well telling me isn't going to do anything you have to call the maintenance department.`
Response from the manager Our apologies for the cleaning issues and the rudeness. We've cleaned house, replacing the cleaner and the employee you spoke with, for this and other similar issues. We take all complaints seriously and will make every effort to solve your problem. We'll make sure any mold issue is resolved. -Rachel
“great cabin with all amenities ,short walk to Guernville and riv”
A beautiful cabin with all amenities one would need . Hot tub divine. Back patio with table and chairs great to eat outside. Comfy chairs also to just hang and relax. A short 5 minute walk to both the river and Guernville . We had 4 teenage girls with us and they had a fabulous time also
Response from the manager This is the perfect place for teenagers, and we're so glad you enjoyed it. Please do come back, and thanks for the review. -Rachel
“Wonderful getaway cottage in a charming town!”
I rented this cottage during New Years 2012/2013 and really enjoyed it. It's in a nice area, with a jacuzzi, surrounded by redwoods. I like that you can bring dogs. The rental company was very organized. The town of guerneville is very charming, I had never been there before. The house is in walking distance to the town, so you can go to bars, etc. and walk back home. Overall, I enjoyed my experience very much and was pleased with the house and it's affordability. The only small things that were less than ideal were that one of the rooms is detached from the main house and doesn't have a bathroom, so if you have to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night you have to go outside to get to the main house. It's just steps from the main house, but if it's winter and the middle of the night, it can be a little disorienting. The detached room can get a little cold in the winter, but they provide a small, but powerful space heater. The walk into town takes about 5-10 minutes, but be sure to walk with a group because the bridge over the river into town is a little sketchy at night, there's a few homeless people camped out there.
Response from the manager We're glad you enjoyed Blue Jay and hope you'll be back. Thanks for the review! -Rachel
“Relaxing - Close to town”
Stayed here for the 2012 Jazz/Blues Festival. Very comfortable, walking distance to Johnson's Beach and town. Do not recommed for someone with disabilities, as there is alot of stairs to climb to the front door. Otherwise a very nice relaxing comfortable home. Only one thing that was alittle gross was the shower curtain liner was very dirty.
Response from the manager We're so sorry about the shower curtain liner. It has been replaced. -Rachel
“Up close with the redwoods”
This comfortable small house on a quiet street is very private, thanks to the fine redwoods all around. We were pleased to be visited by a bluejay. In late September, temperatures were falling a little and the woodstove performed well. Firewood is easy to buy in Guerneville. The downstairs bedroom was a little cool, but that might be a huge advantage in typical summer weather. The folding crib was fine for our just-two-year-old.The kitchen is perfect, and very well-equipped. The main house was nice and roomy for five of us. We found several great beaches on the Russian River, and especially enjoyed the brilliant play equipment at the playground across the street.
