“Thanksgiving at Rio Lindo”
The house was great if I could have had another bathroom that would have made it perfect. The listing said 2 bedrooms 2 bathrooms but in the details it said 1 bathroom so I was hoping for 2.... The living room furniture could be more comfy. The kitchen was great except the oven acted up so my turkey was not cooked right the oven kept locking and giving a F3 error message??? Luckily we had a ham also so we had that for Thanksgiving dinner with our sides. All in all we had a great time.
Rio Lindo has all the amenities we were looking for in a RR rental: awesome hot tub, gas grill, river access (with practically private beach), big kitchen, and even cable (spoiled!). We spent the week after Labor Day in the tub and on the river and it was hard to leave it behind when it was over. The neighborhood is very interesting and we enjoyed walking around Villa Grande and taking in the cute cottages, hidden beaches, tiniest post office ever, and weird historical buildings. I want to wake up every morning and drink my coffee by the Russian River, but until I can have my own slice of the good life, Rio Lindo will definitely do. The only thing we would recommend is more comfortable furniture for the living room, as mentioned in other reviews. A nice big sectional sofa and a quick rearrangement of some furniture would do wonders (we rearranged the living room furniture when we go there and moved it back when we left). For me, it would be great to be able to see the TV while you're doing all your cooking in the kitchen. ;)
“An absolutely lovely little get away!”
Rio Linda was perfect for a small Birthday Party/Ladies Weekend. The backyard is to die for, there's lots of space, there's a hammock which was so lovely to relax in, and you can follow a beautiful walkway down to the river, sit & have some coffee at the water and continue your relaxation. There are notes everywhere inside the house, aiding you with what goes where or how something works. Believe me, it was very helpful. The house was very clean. The house is close to a boat/kayak renting station, down the road, but not so close that there's any noise. It's also, close to downtown. You truly feel like your somewhere else far, far away & you're really not. I can't wait to rent Rio Linda again!
Response from the manager Hello and Thank you!!! We're so glad you enjoyed Rio Lindo and look forward to seeing you again! :) Megan Perkins Russian River Vacation Homes
“We Love Rio Lindo”
This was our third stay at this cozy well appointed vacation get away. The owners have provided all the amenities one could want including beautifully maintained front and rear landscaping and great access to a private beach. Our grandchildren overwhelmingly prefer this home to any other place we've stayed. Villa Grande is a great place for the kids to ride their bikes, and is a comfortable bike ride to Duncan's Mills (about 2 level miles on Moscow Road) for morning pastries and fresh brewed coffee. We will definitely return in 2013!
Response from the manager Villa Grande is such a treasure of a location, and Rio Lindo has a lot to offer. It sounds like all generations in your group enjoyed themselves - that's fantastic! We look forward to your return visit in 2013! Lena Hoffman Russian River Vacation Homes
“Would love to do it again”
This was our first attempt at a "stay-cation" as we live only about 45 minutes away from Monte Rio. We were shocked by how much we did not know about an area basically in our back yard. It was quite nice out at Villa Grande. The river and redwoods scenery was simply stunning. Our time at Rio Lindo was so relaxing. The family loved walking down to the river (straight from the back yard), and we loved, loved, loved the hot tub. The home was very clean. The beds were quite comfy. The front yard (garden) was so beautiful. We enjoyed eating breakfast on the front porch. We also enjoyed our lunches and dinners on the back deck. We wished the back yard was more useable. The grass was awfully high, and uncomfortable to walk through. It made sitting on the chairs on the lawn uncomfortable. The hammock was also very uncomfortable. We had a couple of days without internet, but Linda (the owner) came and replaced the router herself. Much appreciated. Having only one bathroom was challenging at times, but do-able. Also, a couple of the windows were very difficult to open and close. I would have loved if there were screen doors on the front and back doors as the breezes by the river were really nice, and it would have been great to keep the doors open. About half way into our week there, others showed up in the neighboring homes, and their dogs barked and barked and barked. No fault of the owners,of course, but it sure was bothersome. All of the above irks were minor, and certainly did not overshadow all the pluses of Rio Lindo. I would go back just for the view up and down the river, and the view from the deck. Certainly a beautiful spot. All went well with the management company, no problems there.
Response from the manager Hello - Thank you for the review! And for giving us - and Linda - a chance to fix the issue with the router! Things like that never go out at a convenient time or when the house is between guests... And we're sorry the lawn was tall during your stay - you're always welcome to call us about things like this too... Frequently this can be addressed without much intrusion to your stay. We love the decks and views too! And we'll pass on the note about screens - maybe that's doable. :) Megan Perkins Russian River Vacation Homes
“Great for friends and families!”
We had a great time. Perfect size, great water access, hot tub, cute yard. We had a blast! Couch/chairs were a bit small and uncomfortable for lounging.
Response from the manager Hello - Thanks for the feedback - I'm happy to pass it along to the owner - and we're glad you had a great time! :) Megan Perkins Russian River Vacation Homes
“Heaven on the River!”
This beautifully remodeled and furnished home is one of the best kept secrets on the river. Villa Grande is charming, quiet and hidden from the world. The house has a sunny lawn, a big deck and excellent river access. You can soak in the hot tub day or night with complete privacy. It's a short swim, paddle or stroll to the sandy Villa Grande beach, with the best swimming spot around. There are rock cliffs where kids take everything from first-ever foot-high jumps to soaring leaps. Have fun!
“last minute getaway... nice!”
The ladies at Russian River Homes were very nice. We wanted to get away at the last minute with 2 kids and a dog, and this was perfect. The house itself was really nice, the bathroom is funny, but perfectly functional. The hot tub and yard were exactly what we wanted, and the river offered a perfect place for a cookout. We would definitely come back.
Response from the manager Thank you! It's always nice to hear you enjoyed working with the office! And we're always happy to help with last minute getaways, family stays and dog-friendly city-escapes. And Rio Lindo has an awesome backyard, deck and access to the river. Yes, the hot tub is the perfect finishing touch too. :) Megan Perkins Russian River Vacation Homes
“Peacful, relaxing beautiful weekend with wine, food and friends.”
We had the pleasure of leasing a cottage through Russian River Vacation Rentals. The staff was helpful, great communication and fast responses to all of our questions. The cottage was very clean. There is a large back deck and yard and it is steps from the river. Newly remodeled kitchen and really comfortable for our purposes. We were 2 couples and 1 small dog. I will lease this property again.
Response from the manager Hi! We're so glad you enjoyed Rio Lindo! It's a great home for a couple couples and four-legged friends! And we're here to help! Megan Perkins Russian River Vacation Homes
“Relaxing get a way”
Booked this home for family who had never spent time at the Russian River. It was a perfect place for them to kick back and enjoy the river, swimming,canoeing, and fishing. The home was charming and comfortable and the hot tub under the stars devine. The Mattisons
