“Great House, with a spectacular view. Hot tub was well used.”
The house was large, with extra room for seating if preferred to read rather than watch the big screen. Fireplace was cozy. Master Bedroom was equipped with a spa size tub and double shower heads. Brick oven in the kitchen served us well. Good amount of counter space. and laid out whereby several people could be in the area at the same time with no problem. The Kitchen was some what unorganized, no rhyme or reason for where things were stored. Silverware drawer was in disarray. The can opener was so old and rusty we had to go purchase one. Not very well stocked with spices, etc. Small bedroom across from the bathroom, was unbearably hot (seems all the heat went there, might want to check this out). The full size washer and dryer was a nice touch, also bathrobes in the closet and fans (helped in the hot bedroom. We intend to rent again and hope the dock is fixed in the summer.
Likes: view, river access, spacious inside, kitchen had everything we needed. Dislikes: dirty floors when we arrived, stains on some of the bedding, a lot of cobwebs on balcaney, no rails on stairs leading to river and one big step.
“Wonderful, restful Vacation”
-My family really enjoyed this house. It was spacious and very well equipped. The kitchen had plenty of supplies, utensils, crockery, cutlery etc and we think the owner must like cooking and entertaining guests. Even when it was hot, we often sat on the deck, under the umbrella taking in the view up and down river. The hot tub was clean and well positioned. The pontoon allowed easy access to the river and our dog thought it was the best thing ever. All she wanted to do was jump off the pontoon to fetch her ball or to swim in the river to follow us kayaking. The house is very 'dog friendly' with tiles in the common area and a safe, enclosed yard. -walking distance to Guerneville town, Safeway and a good coffee shop. -close to Armstrong Park which is definitely worth a visit, short walks with your dog, hikes and long runs. Overall, a very relaxing week and we wished we could stay longer.
Response from the manager Wonderful that you and your dog enjoyed Paradise so much! Thanks for the review, and we hope to see you again, perhaps for a longer stay:-) -Rachel, Russian River Getaways
“Great family vacation”
We had a great time at this house. There are a lot of rules, but aside from that it is true to the photos and advertised amenities.
“Amazing River access”
This home is perfect for fun times on the river. There are 3 kayaks, and we used all of them consistently. There is also a beautiful, rocky beach on the opposite shore. It's easy to kayak or swim over to it, and it makes the view just perfect. The pros: lots of space, games, and amenities. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you'll need. The cons: a bit dated, and the furniture has seen better days. There are a lot of damaged pieces, and both couches have significant stains on them. It didn't feel very clean. Overall, though, an amazing house. I would definitely stay again if traveling with a group of 4 or more.
Response from the manager Thanks for the review. We'll take a look at the furniture and let the owner know about needed repairs. Please come back soon! -Rachel
“Lots of rules...Great time anyway”
Would give 3.5 stars if able. The home was a good layout for our group of 6 vacationing adults with a couple small dogs. We spent 3 days/nights lounging on our tubes/rafts, kayaking, cooking, bbq, walk to town. Was too hot to use hot tub before "curfew". We have rented vacation homes in different areas for years though this one had rules in the rental agreement and posted all over the home that we've never seen. Pros: On the river, walk to town, well supplied kitchen, kayaks, open floor plan, good beds, decks secured for small dogs-they were able to stay on the deck and see us on the dock/river. Cons: Rules, Rules, Rules, no parking, overgrown landscape, entry/yard needed attention, no beach towels, no river tubes, Rules, Rules, Rules.
Response from the manager We're glad you had a good time at Paradise, despite the rules. It is true that Sonoma County has rules for vacation rentals that we and our guests must follow. The aim of these rules is to keep those few transient guests who are not respectful of others' peace and quiet from being overly disruptive to residents. There are some other rules that are designed to maintain privileges for our guests, such as picking up after your dog, so that our property owners will continue to allow dogs and no smoking, so that our property owners will continue to allow people. Most people do the right thing, but there are some who need more explicit direction. Parking on the narrow streets in the little neighborhoods lining the River can be challenging, but we do describe where to find parking very close by, if the street is full. This is mostly an issue over holidays, not so much the rest of the time. We'll take care of the landscaping; thanks for letting us know. -Rachel, Russian River Getaways
“Family Trip to Paradise house - Russian River”
Had a fabulous week at the Russian River. Our interactions with Russian River Getaways was easy and professional. Over all the house was great. Perfect for 6 people. The kitchen stocked well with great views of the river. It could have been cleaner but not a deal breaker. The master bedroom was roomy, bed comfy,amazing views. We didn't have an issue with the open concept layout but I can see some people feeling weird about the zero lack of privacy. Again, not a deal breaker but something to keep in mind since it might not be for everyone. The dock was great and we spent many hours just watching the river float by. Plenty of kayaks to play around on and the house is in a nice location...so much beautiful wild life etc. I will say if you have small kids the walk to the dock is a bit treacherous. An extra hand rail would be great. Our kids are all over 12 but not safe for younger kids not attended. I will say the couches could use a little cleaning, but the floors and carpets were spick and span. The washer and dryer is way past it's prime. It does not agitate hardly at all so none of the clothes and towels we washed ever seemed really clean. That was kind of yucky since everything gets pretty dirty after a long day on the river. A few hundred bucks to replace those would go a long way. The house had a kind of musty smell, which went away once you opened up a bit, but I have a feeling the lack of fully clean sheets and towels could have something to do with it, because the laundry room had that same smell to it. Last nit picky thing - in their "amenities" list they listed a stereo. No. It's a boom box circa 1995. That's cool, but an investment in some kind of place to dock an I Pod or I phone would probably be very appreciated. But again, nit picky - although little touches like that go a long way. There were board games, a fireplace and the jacuzzi was a big plus. All in all a great place - a few small fixes would take it way over the top.
This was by far the most amazing experience ever. From booking the reservations to leaving the property, every detail was handled in a very professional manner. The house is gorgeous. From the minute you walk in, you are transported to luxury. The kitchen is huge, well equipped, and just the place to a wonderful lobster dinner. The view from the master bedroom is spectacular. Sitting on the balcony over looking the river, sipping your morning coffee and watching the deer across the way, melts away the stress and soothes the soul. During the day, sunbathing on the private dock or kayaking along the river accentuates this journey of serenity. In the evening, cooking on the gas grill on the lower deck and enjoying a glass of Sonoma County wine is just about as good as it gets. Until...you jump into this enormous hot tub to chill-lax. After that, its to bed (very comfortable indeed)for sweet dreams of your next day. We loved it. We plan to come back every year.
Response from the manager The only problem with staying at Paradise is the fact that you have to leave it! It's such a perfect location for a true getaway. We're so glad your stay was enjoyable from beginning to end. We'll see you next time! Russian River Getaways
“Our vacation was relaxing with the best view on the river.”
Russian River Getaways is a friendly and professional company. The home was comfortable with a beautiful view, great location, great dock and a great kitchen. We enjoyed our wonderful deck each day. The house had no air conditioning, although it stated in the stats of the house that it did. It was a hot week, ceiling fans would have made a big difference. We had to buy our own toilet paper and facial tissue which should be a normal stock item. The house needs a good cleaning. Dust on ledges and around baseboards. Floors need a good scrub.
Response from the manager End of the season, all the big riverfront homes that booked back to back all summer need deep cleans, and they are coming up. Next year, we'll be doing some deep cleaning as we go along during the summer to avoid this problem. The house does have central air, and there should have been an initial supply of TP. We don't supply kleenex. Next time, if something is missing or not working and you can't solve it by reading the house binder, please give us a call so we can help you. -Rachel, General Manager
“Relaxing stay in Paradise”
We had a wonderful week in Paradise. The house is comfortable, spacious and beautiful. The view from the decks were awesome. It was great place to unwind and enjoy the river activities.
