“Fantastic house on the river”
My wife and I hosted a west coast family gathering for my three siblings, their children and my parents. We rented several houses in Monte Rio and this was by far the best. This house became the main hang out spot for everybody. The location is great - far enough off the beaten path to give you some beautiful redwood tranquility, but close enough to walk to a restaurant (or for a quick ride into town or to the ocean). The house is also on a great stretch of river. There are no houses on the opposite shore, and it really feels like your own private spot (with some nice wild life - we had an osprey as a regular evening visitor). The back deck is huge and has great views - we had all of our dinners there (12+ people). Below the deck there is a grassy area big enough to play games (bocce/corn hole), with a fire pit and hammock. From there you take the stairs to large floating deck on the river, which has lounge chairs and is a perfect place to relax during the day - when you are not kayaking or inner tubing on the river. The house has a good feel on the inside - with updated appliances, good mattresses, wi-fi that works well, and a nice TV/stereo. I would highly recommend staying here if you are visiting the Russian River.
Response from the manager Thanks so much for your review! We so glad you enjoyed your stay in this wonderful home and hope you'll come back to the River soon and enjoy Tir na nOg again. -Rachel, Russian River Getaways
“Tir Na Nog”
We are six 75 year old ladies that met in grammar school and junior high. We loved hanging out in the kitchen at the wonderful nook with built in table and seats. For the four who slept upstairs getting up and down wasn't easy since the stairs are steep and the railing not ideal. Other than that, we had a wonderful time acting like we did in high school.
“Beautiful home, convenient to many vineyards!”
We had a fantastic stay at this wonderful home! The kitchen was obviously recently updated and I loved the mix of old and new. Everything was very clean and comfortable. There were plenty of stock kitchen supplies, towels, etc. Also, I love the labels in the kitchen - very handy when staying in a vacation rental! And while it was too cold to play in the water, we enjoyed the view of the river from the dock. We're planning a return visit with extended family! Definitely an A+ rental!
“Lovely, Quaint, Unique and intersesting layout, great yard”
There is plenty of space here to sleep a big group. The attic space has 2 bedrooms, one is very spacious with 2 beds, laid out in their own private spaces. The only problem, is that the beds are under the a frame aspect,so if you are tall, getting in and out of bed is a bit awkward and it is important not to hit your head on the ceiling or your knees on the furniture at the foot of the bed, while getting in and out of bed. Because we had a baby there, who still wakes a few times at night, this was a bit tricky, but the good news is, most people don't have that to deal with. For those that do, the other good news is that there is room for a crib up there, so you can sleep a little family in that room. Probably great for older kids up there too! The house is absolutely charming and the yard and deck are fantastic! We were there in the Winter and that was great, but the Summer would really be inviting here. The downstairs bedrooms are great, comfortable beds and spacious. I would recommend some type of white noise for all of the bedrooms, if you are a light sleeper because we found the walls to be quite thin! They were about to renovate the kitchen which will make it even better there. The views are fantastic and the location is private and close to town and right on the river. We would come back here, definitely~ The stairs to the attic are charming but a bit scary when carrying a baby, and a bit scary for a little kid, I wish there was some type of non slip on the steps and a better banister, although that would probably take away from the vintage charm! All in all, we loved the house, the hot tub and enjoyed discovering this unique home that feels well loved, cozy, spacious and comfortable! The only reason I didn't give 5 stars was the attic stairs.
This house was great for our family vacation. It was very comfortable and well stocked. Had my 88 year old mother with us and she still talks about what a great house and great time we all had. It was in a quiet neighborhood and we felt we were the only ones around. I would like to see the railing on the way to the dock repaired so it would be eaiser to access the dock. All in all it was great and we would rent this house again. Thank you
Response from the manager I believe that the railing has already been repaired, but I will check to make sure. -Rachel, General Manager
What a great place for families! Right on the beautiful river. We took our 1.5 year old, my sister's two tween agers and friends and my parents...such a great house, place, view..wonderful. Great new fans, awesome updated bathrooms and a super new big outside deck set. Tv's in the appropriate rooms with cable. Loved having three kayaks, two double seaters to boot. The only improvement I would reccomend is to have railings on both sides of the steps, at the bottom of the steps, which get you onto the dock.
Response from the manager To clarify about the dock steps, there are handrails on both sides the length of the steps themselves. At the bottom, on the very short ramp that connects the steps to the dock itself (and allows for the up and down of the water level), there's railing on only one side. This is typical of dock installation, as is no railing around the dock itself. It's wise to move with care on any structure near water. -Rachel, General Manager
“A fabulous house on the River!”
When I walked into Tir Na Nog for my Birthday in april, 2012, I realized I had stayed here about 7 years prior. I was a little worried at first, because I remembered it wasn't that great the first time I stayed here back in 2005, but after a tour of the house, it seemed that the owners had made vast improvements! The bedrooms were clean and super comfy! The bathrooms were tidy as was the rest of the house. The hot tub was clean and warm Things were fairly simple to locate, because they had most of the kitchen labeled; And the back yard is fabulous! My only drawbacks were that the key to the Hot tub was very difficult to find - as it was not on the hook that said "Hot Tub Keys." After a few hours, we found it hanging on some random hook in the kitchen, so we thought we were out of a hot tub for the weekend. Once we opened it up, however, it was amazing and it stayed super warm for the entirety of the weekend. Next, the Kayaks were a pain in the butt to find, take out of the tiny room they were located in, etc. They had no cart to take them down to the river. River access was not at the house, it was 3 houses over and the Kayak we took was so heavy and awkward to carry thru the other yards down to the "beach". (There were 3 but we gave up after taking 1 out) Lastly, the bathroom near the master suite had problems all weekend. That was sort of a downer. I think the house should have better plumbing if it wants to be able accommodate 10 people per night, because after the first few hours, all 10 of us were stuck using 1 bathroom for the rest of the weekend as the master didn't flush... not until about 15 minutes before check-out. And then, of course, it worked just fine. Wouldn't ya know! I do recommend this place, because the check-in is easy, it is right on the Russian River, it's super quaint, totally clean, and all-in-all, it had way more *great* things about it than *bad* things about it!
Response from the manager We're so glad you enjoyed your stay and found the place improved. We're sorry about the hot tub keys; the previous guests must have misplaced them. You were visiting in April, and not only are the dock and boats not available, but the river is not safe! This is why the boats were put away. They will be out when the dock goes in, usually in late May. We haven't had complaints about the bathroom since your stay, so I'm not sure what happened. But, please next time call us! We can help you with just about any problem. -general manager
“Comfortable, spacious, quiet”
Great place, plenty of space, comfortable beds, nice ammenities. Some small lacking things - the dishwasher didn't really wash much and as a result some of the put away dishes weren't perfectly clean; none of the kitchen knives are sharp; bathroom fan kept coming in and out; back room light switch is very difficult to find; temp guage on hot tub is broken (said 90 but was too hot to even sit in). Again, these were minor things if you want to address for the next guest.
Response from the manager Thanks for your kind words about this wonderful home. We did check out the dishwasher and could not find a problem; it seems to wash the dishes just fine and there were no dirty dishes in the cabinet. We'll keep an eye on it. There is a knife sharpener at the house now, and the knives have been sharpened. The bathroom fan does need repair, which is scheduled. The light switch is right above the sink, not hidden, so not sure why it was hard to find. The hot tub temperature gauge was broken and has now been fixed. -rkl Bathroom fan has long since been repaired. -Rachel, general manager
“Wonderful location and home!”
Your home was beautiful, loved every minute of our stay. Great location and nice to have kayacks right there, water lovely, bbq sweet, Tv's everywhere with cable..Can't think of anything we lacked..Would love to stay again. All I can say is it was better than we imagined.. Kathy
“Great location, super fun!!”
We had a great time at Tir Na Nog. We were a group of 10 celebrating a birthday. Had a great time kayaking, swimming, hot tubing, and cooking. Would totally come back to Tir Na Nog! It was perfect for our group.
