We had a mini family reunion at Bella Ursula and could not be happier with our experience. My parents loved staying in the separate master suite. The views were pretty stunning and it was awesome being right on the River. The house was cozy and quaint with that rustic Guerneville vibe. We enjoyed BBQ on the deck, kayaking, soaking in the hot tub under the stars and fishing off the dock. My sister caught a fish! We had a wonderful three days on the river and would love to return next year.
“charming, comfortable house”
Feels like your grandma's cozy cabin! The furniture in the living room is old and squashy and the main tv is small, but we didn't notice because the place is set up to enjoy each others' company. We cooked every meal in the kitchen and had all the utensils and equipment we needed. House was stocked with some good books, the beds were very comfortable, and the hot tub worked perfectly -- just what we needed to relax. The master bedroom is by itself out back by the hot tub -- have to go outside to get there -- and the other two bedrooms (one queen bed and 2 twins) are inside. The house as a whole is clean, well maintained, and neatly decorated but not overstuffed -- a nice combination! Plus the wifi worked great; we've had trouble at other rental houses, but not this one. We had 5 people staying here during a wine tasting trip (one couple and 3 singles) and this was the perfect spot to spend our mornings and nights. It's not a luxurious or super-modern house, but it's comfortable, clean, and well-priced. It was also easy to pick up and drop off keys; we were driving up from the Bay area so didn't arrive until late, but there were no problems. The only complaint was that the front door lock was a little sticky and hard to turn - otherwise great place! Will be back!

“We all loved the home!”
My boyfriend and I hosted a weekend vacation with our close friends, and everyone in our party really enjoyed the home. It is very comfortable, nicely appointed and gave us the feeling of a real relaxing vacation. The kitchen was very well equipped, and the house had all of the amenities we value such as wifi, cable and many more. The location is also excellent and really beautiful views of the river. The staff is also very accommodating. We are planning to come back next year!
Response from the manager Hello! Thank you for the great review! We are glad you enjoyed your stay and the amenities! The view from the hot tub is fantastic too... And we're always glad to help - :) Megan Perkins Russian River Vacation Homes
Beautiful remodeled home on the river. canoe, kayak, pier, close to town, quiet - very functional kitchen - hot tub on the deck. We felt pampered.
Response from the manager Hello! We're so glad you enjoyed the house! And we hope we'll see you again soon! :) Megan Perkins Russian River Vacation Homes
I have to say that overall our stay was fantastic. This was for a work retreat. We rented this location and River Dream. Both were what we needed. The staff was extremely helpful at check in and check out and the entire process really. Everyone had a wonderful time and I am sure we will be back.
Response from the manager Hello! We are so happy to work with businesses, churches, and other groups for retreats! It's fun and you guys were great guests too! I'm glad to hear there are still fantastic work retreats! Megan Perkins Russian River Vacation Homes
“Comfortable but lacking in up-to-date amenities”
While the furnishings were adequate, we felt there was a lack of modern amenities. For example, the kitchen was fairly well equipped but there was a variance in quality of the equipment - All-Clad pots aside cheap thrift store pots, coffee maker didn't work, rusty blunt potato peeler, 30 year old electic stove and oven etc. It resembled the kitchen of a shared student house. The 25 year old "stereo" was basically un-useable in this day and age - where was the iPod sync or docking station that so many properties offer these days - and we couldn't find the barbeque utensils. All-in-all a comfortable stay but lacking the basic amenities we're used to and expect from a quality vacation rental.
Response from the manager Hello! Thank you for sharing your experience with us... I wish you'd let us know during your stay that the coffee maker wasn't working - we have a loaner in the office and could have gotten it out to you! We try to keep kitchen items up to date in all our homes, but it helps when folks let us know about specific items that are out-of-sorts. We can ask the cleaner to address those items specifically and the owner about replacement possibilities too. We do list all the electronics and specific features in the amenities for each house so folks can look ahead (or call and ask) if there are items they want in a house. Bella Ursula is a fantastic home in that it is laid back and relaxed. We love it for the rustic feeling and simple, not-too-fancy or hard-to-figure-out furnishings and amenities. The stereo is visible in the photos online and is a CD player too and works just fine! I've even turned it on and used it... Megan Perkins Russian River Vacation Homes Update September 2011: The home has a brand new coffee maker, stereo and 2 flat screen TVs. Thank you again for your feedback. We and the owners of Bella Ursula love to hear from guests how we can make your rental experience even better! -Ellen
“Wonderful weekend on the river!”
We had a lovely time at Bella Ursula. The house was comfortable and the deck was great for enjoying the fall air. There was enough room for everyone to eat, sleep, and be merry!
Response from the manager Hi! Thank you for sharing your experience - we think this is a perfect lounge and relax house! I hope we'll see you again... Megan Perkins Russian River Vacation Homes
Getting to the boat was a little tricky. The end of the path was steep and slippery with the step very high. You did not need keys to the boats only the combination. The house is very beautiful and clean.
