"Family"

5 of 5

This is our second stay at California Dream. We are so grateful to be able to stay in this home with our family. Thank you so much to the generous owners for opening the house up to us. The house is spacious and well appointed, and the location provides a little peace on earth.

Manager Response:

We're so glad you enjoyed your stay at California Dream! Thanks for the review, and we hope to see you again next year! -Rachel, Russian River Getaways

"Perfect getaway"

5 of 5

I rented the house for a birthday weekend with friends. I was hoping to find a place where we could spend most of our time outdoors and had enough indoor space to spend time together cooking, etc. The house was perfect. We spent almost all of our time out doors - hanging out on the deck (where all meals were had), kayaking, playing soccer and lounging on the lawn. The bathroom in the suite in the front of the house is odd in that there is no functioning shower so I had to share another bathroom, but other than that the house couldn't have been more perfect. We are going to make it an annual trip for sure.

Manager Response:

Thank you for your feedback, Monica. Sounds like a wonderful and active birthday weekend on the river. Although the front bathroom does not have a shower as you mentioned, it does have a tub there that could be great for a bubble bath! :-) We look forward to welcoming you back to the Russian River next time!

"Best Vacation House so Far"

5 of 5

We have stayed at between 10-15 vacation homes and this one was the best. First and foremost what you see in the pictures is exactly what you get. My teenage boys were always entertained between the kayaking, fishing, archary, frisbee and hot tub. My parents were in heaven with the spacious house, hot tub and beautiful views. I was the happiest because everyone else was happy. This was just perfect! Can't wait till next time because there is no more searching!

"Great Weekend on the River"

5 of 5

Two families, four kids and four adults, stayed for the weekend. The place was great. Everything was pretty much as advertised. The house was a little dated, but that was part of the charm. The pictures do not do the size of the house justice. The two kayaks were great for days on the river. It was a bit of a challenge getting them in and out because there is no easily accessible beach, sloped river access or dock. However, the house is at a great location for trips up or down the river once they were in.All the windows provide a view over the river from anywhere in the house. Since there is no house directly across the river, it still feels pretty private. The deck is huge, and great for night under the stars.

"Beautiful location, and very cool mid-century house, but..."

3 of 5

I'll start with the pros:Location is fabulous, and house is really very cool. The mid-century architecture is gorgeous, and it has been lovingly restored, with some very cool retro features (anyone remember in-counter blenders?) The main living areas are great, with excellent views.That said, the bedrooms and baths really leave a LOT to be desired. Feels like staying in your aunt's spare bedroom (all 3 of them) Nothing on walls (a lot of picture hooks, but no pictures, I'm wondering if owners worry people will steal art so put it in a locked closet before renters arrive?) Bedrooms are all located away from river, and are very dark. Moved to another house about 5 minutes away for the rest of our stay, that while a bit more expensive, is luxurious in every regard, all amenities you can imagine, from beach towels to beautiful art and decor. I understand that owners are slowly redecorating house, and once they hit the bedrooms, I'm sure it will be awesome.

"Great Property"

4 of 5

Awesome location with terrific access to the Russian River.Huge deck overlooking the river and plenty of room thru-out the house to spread out. Beds were comfortable and the house was well appointed for the most part.The downside:Decor is minimal and furnishings are dated and worn.The bathrooms and kitchen are retro but not in the cool way,just old and very tired.The propane on the grill was not hooked up causing us to think that it was empty.

"Great Girl's Weekend Getaway"

5 of 5

We really enjoyed our 3 night stay in March. We were really pleased with the "mad men" style home. We loved the huge hot tub and found the kitchen had ample space for cooking and eating. We highly recommend.

Manager Response:

Thanks so much for your review. I'm really glad you enjoyed the mid-century style and amenities at California Dream. Please do come back soon. -Rachel, Russian River Getaways

"Peaceful and Relaxing Get-Away"

4 of 5

Quiet, peaceful, beautiful scenic riverfront location - room for everyone to spread out and have their space both indoors and out - even in the large hot tub. Room to set up and play badminton - which we did. Our family enjoyed a totally relaxing stay! Can tell by upgrades made so far that that owners are putting their hearts into restoring their California Dream!

Manager Response:

What a wonderful review; thank you for sharing your experience. The owners are indeed taking great care with the renovations, and this home will continue to get better and better with time. -Rachel, Russian River Getaways

"It was a dream!"

5 of 5

Our family of six and our pets had a wonderful time.The house is very spacious. Everyone had plenty of space.The deck and the yard were fantastic. It was great to have our own river access. The kids and the dogs had so much fun in the river.It was a very quiet neighborhood and it was safe for the kids to ride their bikes.Really enjoyed the big kitchen and two dishwashers. All this house needs to be perfect is a hot tub and they said they'll be getting one soon.We will be back.
