- Very Good
The house was just like the pictures, clean, bright & comfortable. Close proximity to river & wineries. One big flaw was the directions in getting to house. We were told NOT to follow GPS, rather follow the written directions emailed to us, which were not very clear or accurate. The directions that were in the info booklet in the house were in fact clear and correct, but that made no difference because we could not see them until in fact we got there! Otherwise all was a good experience.
“Very happy with Peace and Quiet”
Could not have been better. House was exactly as described -- plus immaculate and very well equipped. Absolutely wonderful experience staying there!
“Amazing house in inconvenient location”
The house and all amenities was absolutely perfect, however the location was too remote from key central Sonoma and Healdsburg vineyard locations. So remote in fact there was no cell service and we had to rely on the house phone. Backyard (with hot tub and grill) was amazing and mostly relaxing ... except for the neighbors dog constantly barking.
I don't recall mention that the lower unit is disconnected from the main house. Going outside at night to travel down to the lower unit was dangerous. Over hanging tree growth over the gravel path. Very uncomfortable not having any cover over the bathroom window which overlooks patio of next door home. No utensils in bottom unit nor enough dishes. All that was in the unit was one coffee mug and one plate. It was nice upon arrival, a bottle of Calif wine on the kitchen island in the main house
Response from the manager Thank you for your review, and I'm glad you appreciated the wine. I'm sorry that some of your expectations were not met. It is pretty clear on the house webpage and the property fact sheet that there is no interior access to the lower unit, however I will beef that up so that there can be no mistake. The foliage has been cleared, and the path is perfectly manicured and safe. The lower unit is not a fully stocked kitchen, but we will check it out to make sure the basics are there. We'll also check the window to make sure privacy is maintained in that bathroom. -Rachel
“Lives up to it's name!”
We had a wonderful time at Peace and Quiet. The upstairs of the house is nicely remodeled, the furnishing are very tasteful and it all feels relatively new. The upstairs is the best part. It is very spacious with lots of huge windows and light considering it is in the redwoods. The living/dining/kitchen area is one big open area with lots of room and a great place for everyone to hang out. There is a lot of access to the outside. The bedrooms were also light, airy and quite roomy. We have rented quite a few houses in this area and this one is my favorite so far! Even though the house is in a neighborhood with a rabbit warren of houses all up and down the hill, there is a real privacy due to the way the houses are laid out. The backyard area is great for a BBQ and the hot tub was great. Close to lots of great wineries and the river. There is a downstairs bedroom, with a living area, small kitchen and bathroom that we ended up not needing for two couples. It has been remodeled but has an older cabin feel to it compared to upstairs. Still very nice. It is like a separate unit as there is no internal connection and you must walk outside and down a hill to get to it. Not that that is necessarily a bad thing, if you have three couples it would provide more privacy if someone in the group wanted that. We were traveling a small child and it just didn't feel right to have the baby napping down there alone. There was plenty of room upstairs for that. The folks at the office where we booked our stay were really helpful and the place was in tip top shape. The place was super clean. There was even a bottle of wine waiting for us when we arrived. We were very happy with our stay here in the Russian River Valley.
Response from the manager I really appreciate the detailed review of Peace & Quiet, and I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. There's always more to see in Sonoma County, so please do come back and visit us again. -Rachel, Russian River Getaways
This house is located in a wooded, beautiful, peaceful area. It is very clean. The pictures probably don't do it justice. This house is well stocked with everything that you will need. The little "apartment like" area in the lower part of the house was very nice. The backyard is very spacious and with a very nice hot tub. Excellent place to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet. We really appreciated the dog friendliness of this home, and so did our dog. The keyless access was very convenient. We really appreciated all the labeling of the lights, and the great explanations in the binder of how everything worked. Very organized. Great location, and very close to many things. We would not hesitate to stay here again. Just what our family needed!!
“Awesome house for the six of us: quiet, beautiful, and clean.”
The communication with RRG was very comprehensive. No problems with key; the house had all of the amenities shown, was very clean, and was very spacious. Temperature was colder on lower level than on upper, but still comfortable. The location was great for winery tours, and a grocery store within a five minute drive. Will go back to this house again if we plan to be in the area. The area is older, and some houses are less well-kept but some like this one were updated. We felt very safe and enjoyed walking around the loop to top of hill and back down Scenic Rd. to Old River Road. A real hamstring/calf work-out!
Response from the manager Thanks for the great review of Peace & Quiet. We're glad you enjoyed your stay, and we'd love to have you back! -Rachel
“Great rental but left hungry”
The house is great - clean, new, stocked with all the necessary conveniences, including a hot tub. The floor plan is open and spacious. However, since there are no extra matresses or pull-out beds, 3 couples really is the max. The only bummer (and it was a big one) was the lack of propane for the BBQ grill. We ran out on the 2nd night of our 2 night stay and, despite what the house instructions said, there were no extra cannisters available. It was too late too make alternative dinner plans and we were pretty frustrated.
Response from the manager We're so glad you enjoyed Peace & Quiet. The house only sleeps six people so three couples (or other configuration of six) is the max! Next time, please call us if you have a problem like running out of propane for the grill and not finding any back up. We could have easily run a full canister out to you in time for dinner. -Rachel, Russian River Getaways
Loved the home!!! Everything you could possibly need, except an aC. Just our luck we choose the week of an abnormal heat wave. The home does not have aC and it was really hot in the middle of the day. But we were so close to the river and the ocean we had to get to the water to cool down. It was a great vacation!!
Response from the manager Thanks for your lovely review, and we're glad you had a great stay at Peace & Quiet. It rarely gets hot enough here to want air conditioning, so most homes don't have it. That is where all the nearby water comes in handy! We hope you'll be back at the River soon. -Rachel, Russian River Getaways
The home is lovely, well appointed, comfortable. Situated about 1 mile from Korbel Vineyards, it's close to Russian River wineries. We visited for Passport to Pinot, Russian River Valley. We enjoyed our stay. I gave it only 4 starts because it's not easy to get to. Single lane trails, uphill. Be careful backing into the upper driveway (carport). After having one drive wheel off terra firma when arriving for the first time, we parked in the lower driveway for the rest of our stay. The lower floor is its own apartment, with its own keyed entrance. There is no access to it from the upper floor. Not as problem for us since we weren't using it. Overall, a nice place in a convenient location.
Response from the manager Most of our roads here in the Russian River area are small one lane roads and that's part of the charm of staying here. The upper driveway is tricky to maneuver but there is the bottom parking area, which is so much easier to use. Russian River Getaways
