Left on 06/06/2013 for a stay in March 2013 | Wedding GuestReviewed Jun 6, 2013Stayed Mar 2013
This unusual apartment has been renovated to be very attractive. The kitchen, in particular, is quite handsome with its new countertop and cabinetry. All the natural wood makes this a lovely place to stay in the very small, woodsy "town" of Monte Rio. Having two full bathrooms was a real plus. The check-in process was easy, but it would have been nice to be able to check out by leaving the keys inside without having to make a trip back to the rental office which is a few miles away. The second bedroom does not have any closet, which was a bit inconvenient for the third member of our party, but the master bedroom closet was large enough for all of us to share. We were three adult relatives, visiting this area to attend a wedding. Overall we had a very enjoyable stay and would definitely recommend this property.
Thank you - the owners have done quite a lot of work modernizing this home - and it shows. The kitchen is delightful! And we appreciate the feedback about the check in process too. Many of our homeowners are switching to a keyless entry system that streamlines the check in and checkout process. Your feedback helps us and owners make informed decisions about the value of this system. For the record, unless you leave by Hwy 1, the office is on the way back out of town for most of our homes.

This was the first time we went away with our black lab, Roxanne the lovely. The house was perfect, it even had large dog beds. The neighbors were great. They invited us to march in the local July 4th parade and then to a party in a locals home afterwards. family and friends were able to come and stay with us for a few days and they all informed us that we really need to stay here next year!

My experience here was great. The house was very clean and had everything we needed. It was in a quiet, secluded area which made for a total getaway experience. Only gripe was that it was hard to find and directions weren't very clear.
Thank you for leaving a great review for Up & Away - it's a great property! As you pointed out, some folks find it a bit tricky navigating the streets to the house - the driving directions listed in the Reservation Packet we send guests are the best... Don't use GPS or car navigation! Until the county is able to cut away branches from some of the road signs, we recommend driving slowly when you get close...
