Gary October 2021
Very clean, comfortable beds, well equipped modern kitchen. A lot more road noise than we expected when out on the deck.

Carl October 2021
Very private and relaxing location, if you want to get away this is the place to stay and still close to town.

Weizhao September 2021
We stay over the house for the weekend and had lot of fun. The property is located closely to a private beach and easy access to the activities like boating, etc. The house has a large refrigerator and nice stove. It is also close to grocery stores.

Jennifer September 2021
Had a wonderful stay near the River with our extended family gathering. Very comfortable house with well-equipped kitchen, large decks, a hot tub, and two kayaks.

Melissa September 2021
My family enjoyed our stay here. It was short drive to town, and has a lovely view of trees/hillside from the back deck. The back deck was great for grilling, eating outside, and cooling off when the house got hot. There are a good number of fans but the AC was apparently locked and only to be used when it was over 90 degrees. it was high 80s when we were there the first couple days we probably should have just called about accessing the AC because even with fans it got hot in there. But that was our only issue. When the weather cooled down we enjoyed the nice hot tub. Our dog loved the contained deck and the fenced back yard. It was a good spot for him. We had fun using the kayaks and it's really nice they are kept at the beach. We had fun in the area, not too far drive to the beach, mini golf, wineries etc. We would return to this house, and recommend it.

Lisa September 2021
A gem! This place is plenty big enough for 3 couples and offers several great hangout areas - the living room, the back deck, the front deck, and the nearby beach. We had an extremely pleasant 3 night stay and hope to return.

Rebecca September 2021
The house was beautiful, very comfortable, and all the amenities were there. The quick walk to the private beach on the river was so convenient.

Paige July 2021
Great house! Very short walk to the river. Water was warm and we enjoyed the kayaks and floaties at the house. The beds are comfortable and the hot tub is great after a day out on the water. Kitchen is stocked full of pots and pans and utensils.

Rick June 2021
This was a wonderful vacation rental. The hosts were very responsive to our (very few) questions... Overall, FIVE stars!

Aimee June 2021
This is a great house for a group, and if you have a dog. The deck and dog run are completely gated in, plus the greater backyard is nice if you have your dog off leash. The kayaks and additional floats made the river experience great, and we really appreciated the well-stocked kitchen to do some cooking. The neighborhood is quiet and beautiful, and we loved the quick access to the river. There is A/C offered if the temperature reaches a certain degree, but be warned that this house gets very warm very quickly even if it's not that hot outside. We followed the guidelines we had to get the house cool, and the house was still sweltering. They were gracious and gave us the code for the A/C anyway, though it wasn't working. Not a dealbreaker for this house, but just a word of note if you have trouble sleeping in hotter environments.

Response from Russian River Getaways June 2021
Thanks for the review and feedback, Aimee. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. We do apologize for the air-conditioning not working properly during your stay. It is fixed now, but we wish we could have helped you while you were in house. -Rachel

Vanessa June 2021
Everything was excellent! Highly recommended. Great location, just a 5 minute walk to a beautiful beach. The house had everything we needed. Would definitely stay here again.

Jenna May 2021
The house was amazing, perfect for our small couples retreat! Dinners on the deck were wonderful, and the small beach was so lovely to spend the afternoon floating on the river.

Jennifer May 2021
Had a great time at this great house! It was clean and had everything we could need. The location was perfect, just a few minute walk to a bunch of different spots on the river.

Lisa April 2021
Beach Retreat was comfortable, well stocked and clean. If you like having kitchen towels I would suggest bringing your own. The place is definitely dog friendly. Very easy to have our animals. Enjoyed hot tub and star gazing. Lovely place to spend the weekend.

Brent April 2021
We had a great stay with our family which included kids, dog, and grandparents. It was nice to have the house on one level, even with the stairs. The kids were safe on the deck and had a great time using the lawn area below. Everything about the home was clearly communicated and as expected. We used the hot tub, laundry and cooked in the great kitchen. The house is a jaunt from town - it takes a good getting used to driving down Drake Road, but it's well worth the solitude.

Aaron April 2021
This home was superb. It was very clean and the host was extremely communicative. Highly recommend staying here.

Mike April 2021
Very open and worked well for 6 of us staying there this long weekend. Hot tub a great addition. Though a little walk to the river the area in the back was great for our dogs as well as just great view. Kitchen worked well and fridge is more than adequate as very large but very well made. Want to get the dishwasher installed in our home as it's the quietest one I've ever "not" heard. But all in all a very well kept up and enjoyable home. And though like most homes in the Guerneville area it has lots of stairs, the stairs were well put together and sturdy and the home was very one level once you were on the main level (some homes we've rented in the same area seem like a maze, have multiple steps up and down into each room, and getting into the places in the past could be almost hazardous). Thanks and definitely would book this place again in the area!

Tera March 2021
I loved this place! The house was clean, it also has good space for guests to have time to themselves and privacy while also allowing for gathering together with the decks, hot tub and riverfront area. I loved having the semi private river beach area and it's close to downtown Guerneville

Thomas March 2021
river right behind with a short walk caught a big trout had kayaks right at the house nice town.

Claire March 2021
Everything was as described, though the photos are quite flattering - the rooms are actually fairly small and dark. The heating is uneven- one room was blazing while the other was cold. The hot tub is great (very hot!) though the water could’ve been cleaner. The kitchen is well appointed. Hot water takes a while to come through. We appreciated the general location- it’s a relatively short drive to bodega bay, Jenner, etc. but pretty expensive for what it is.

Jessica December 2020
An awesome place to getaway and relax, especially during the pandemic! The house was clean and private, the kitchen was well equipped, and the hot tub was fantastic. On top of the great facilities, the customer service from and communication with Russian River Getaways was absolutely amazing. Thank you for the wonderful time and we look forward to staying with you again some day!

Gina December 2020
Great location on a quiet street. Would rent it again with my family and friends in the Summer when the river is full.

Nathaniel November 2020
Great location on the Russian River with close access to Guerneville. Not much of a beach (mostly pebbles and rocks in most places) at the river, but a great launching point for kayaking or a place to play with the kids and dog. Large sandy beach available closer to town. Hosts were very friendly and responsive.

Meredith November 2020
Just exactly what my family needed! A beautiful house with three comfy beds (the best bed I have ever slept in at an airbnb!) and a great kitchen for my chef husband. The dog run was great for our family dog (he is ball crazy) and there were lots of nice places to walk with him in the neighborhood. I was especially appreciative of the gas fireplace and how well-insulated the house is, while my family was more focused on the hot tub. Think of it as kind of a beach retreat in the woods but without all of the spiders. All in all, one of our best airbnb experiences ever and we are already thinking of coming back in the summer!

Tony November 2020
Perfect place and a great value. I would highly recommend this house and would love to stay again.

Tina November 2020
Great space, amazingly comfortable bed in the middle room, beautiful deck, lovely neighborhood.

Dominic November 2020
Love this place! Hot tub is awesome! Backyard is awesome! Beach spot is awesome. It’s right across from a local dispensary! Would definitely go again.

Brian October 2020
As advertised. Clean, well stocked. We cooked meals there and had everything needed to make that happen

Aliaksandr October 2020
Great location for the river stay. Thanks, Alex.

Elizabeth October 2020
Such a wonderful trip! The neighbors were so nice and the walk to the river was so quick. We definitely recommend staying at the beach resort❤

Kate September 2020
We had a great time at the river and will definitely be back to this home if the hosts will have us! We traveled with our 6 year old, 20 month old, and my parents (the grandparents). The house was a perfect size for our group. Our pack-n-play fit well into the bathroom in the master bedroom (note that there is a skylight in there, so it was good we had a shade tent cover). Only downside is that the king bed is in one of the other bedrooms, as I had hoped that would be in the master. The other bathroom is a bit small, but worked fine. The hot tub was amazing - huge and well heated. Very clean. The kitchen was also very well stocked with all the cooking items you could need. We could have used a few extra plates, and there are no kid-friendly/plastic items, so bring your own if you need them. The best part of this house is the outdoors. The back deck has a great, covered table for outdoor eating next to the grill. Out the back and down the stairs, it was a quick 3-minute walk to a small, private-like beach. We spent most of our days there and enjoyed use of the kayaks and life jackets from the house. There are also ample floats, outdoor games, chairs, etc. for your use. We also enjoyed the HUGE collection of indoor family games (monopoly, Catan, yahtzee, etc.). We can't wait for our next trip!

Julie August 2020
Really nice place with great access to private beach with own kayak

Dominic March 2020
Great location and view of the forest. Quick and easy communication. Short path to a beautiful beach on the river.

Zack January 2020
The house is really lovely. It's well-appointed and feels like someone's home that they are renting out. The kitchen is stocked with dishes and flatware and tools that a pure-Airbnb house typically isn't. It feels like you're a guest in someone's home. The house has been tastefully updated for rental and it looks like it was done by someone who knows what they're doing. All the choices are predominately neutral, and thoughtful. The kitchen was done particularly well -- the fridge is gorgeous, I know that's a weird thing to comment on, but it's nice when your expectations are exceeded. The bathrooms were tastefully done. The art is a bit peculiar, but we didn't mind it. The best part of the place though is how thoughtfully it's been engineered for privacy and for dogs. The outdoors is all fenced, all around, the deck is fenced all the way around where necessary. We could leave our dog on the deck and let him run around, or put him in the dog run down below and not worry about him. The hot tub is also wholly private even though it's not in a perfect location. This was really a lovely getaway and exceeded our expectations substantively in those few key areas. A really nice place.

Theresa December 2019
This was a perfect spot for a relaxing holiday weekend! We very much enjoyed kayaking on the river and hiking nearby, soaking in the hot tub, day trips to the nearby wineries, and relaxing in front of the fire place. They provided a wonderful list of activities and wineries to explore and it was a 3 min walk down to the river! The three bedrooms and two bathrooms were spacious and perfect for our party of 6 adults, and I loved the central living room/dining room/kitchen space - it was open yet cozy. I highly recommend this place!

Vanessa November 2019
The view off the back deck makes it feel like you're in the woods, which is gorgeous. It feels nice and remote while still being conveniently close to downtown Guerneville. And the staff at River Getaways was very helpful throughout our stay. The tile floor in the main living space makes this place not so cozy for a cooler-weather time of year - might feel nicer in the summer when you could leave the back porch door open and have an indoor-outdoor vibe. The part of the river that is accessible through the path in the backyard is directly across from a busy highway/country road, so not exactly the beach retreat we were imagining, but still nice to have the river so close by.

Cassi October 2019
Lovely location and cozy place.

Sally October 2019
Fun area on Russian River. Great rental having 3 bedrooms with queen size beds or larger (1 king) Wonderful kitchen. The description matched the rental perfectly. Very cozy with great deck that was partially covered. Bring your own beach towels, shampoo and conditioner! And enjoy

Scott September 2019
Great location and easy access to the river, stores and restaurants.

Annelise M September 2019
Really enjoyed staying at this home! The hot tub was perfect and access to the river beach was lovey. Home was a great size for 5 people and a dog, plenty of room to spread out. And very conveniently located near town which had a Safeway. Perfect for everything we needed. The hosts were great communicators and told us everything we needed to know upfront and also had a binder with additional information.

Natali August 2019
Pretty little house with a wonderful deck looking into the trees we BBQ every night. The hot tub was wonderful to soak in after a long day at Drakes beach which was just a short walk from the house. My kids especially loved the kayaks.

Kaye July 2019
The Beach Retreat was a fabulous choice for a few days on the river. It was very clean, had everything we needed, and feels private and remote even though it's 5 minutes to town. We'll definitely come back!

Joe July 2019
What a find! Very short walk down to river with a beach, perfect for a group of 6 +2 dogs and a short drive from downtown.

Deeanna And Matt July 2019
The river access is awesome!! The home is very accommodating

Stacia June 2019
Great spot to relax by the river! The kitchen is updated, the access to the river is easy and the response time is fast.

Kirstin June 2019
Great location and a very pleasant stay. The home was well stocked with everything we needed for a comfortable stay.

Kari May 2019
Beautiful house in a great location close to the river. Had a blast with my partner, sister, friends, and our dog.

Rebecca April 2019
Spacious, clean cabin with a lovely back yard close to downtown Guerneville, would stay again.

John April 2019
We had a wonderful weekend in this cozy spot by the river, enjoying it with our 20mo old daughter and another couple with their 2y old. The space was clean, comfortable, and accommodating. While we expected to use the nearby river, a 3min walk, we wound up just hanging out on the deck, soaking in the sun, cooking, and relaxing. All facilities worked perfectly. Beds were comfortable. Our daughter's bedroom was very dark with blackout shades, good for a long sleep. Location is a little remote, about 10m from downtown Guerneville, but still only half an hour from a variety of wineries.

Elizabeth April 2019
great place! unfortunately the river had recently flooded prior to our stay so we were unable to check out the beach part, but we had a great time sitting by the fire place and in the hot tub.

Virat March 2019
Seamless check in and check out process. Well stocked with what you need for the stay. Some complimentary toiletries would be appreciated - body washes, simple shampoos and small toothpastes perhaps. People tend to forget their body washes. Consider lowering the cleaning fees for short stays.

Shil January 2019
Great spot for a long weekend away with friends! We greatly enjoyed the huge window looking out to the woods, the living room fireplace, and the hot tub. Was a little more out-of-the-way (down a narrow winding side road) than I expected, but only 5 mins drive so not a big deal at all. The Russian River area was awesome - full of great food, drinks, and views. Would be lovely to come back in the summer so we could make use of the river too!

Gefany December 2018
Great area and views. Enjoyed my stay very much. Kitchen was well equipped.

Brendan November 2018
We had an amazing week at this beautiful home just steps away from the river. It was the perfect location for our family and friends to have a wonderful Thanksgiving together.

Marcus October 2018
Great location on the river with easy Check in process.

Michael October 2018
We enjoyed this home a lot. It was very clean and well maintained. The kitchen was very nice and updated and had all the pots and utensils you need to enjoy at-home meals. The dining and sitting areas were comfortable for socializing and had good light through large pane windows facing the back yard. The hot tub would have been better placed in the back rather than the front, but we still enjoyed using it in the front.

Alberto October 2018
We had a great stay! The house was clean, plenty of towels were available, the hot tub was great, and the kitchen was well equipped for our cooking needs! We really enjoyed being able to hang out on the deck and enjoy the scenery every morning and evening The location was great, it was fun to walk to the river every day! We look forward to visiting again some time!

Robert September 2018
Great spot. Lovely deck and hot tub. Dog run was a really nice touch.

Leah September 2018
Beautiful, quiet, clean and well stocked. Very comfortable with gorgeous views. Close to Guerneville and pretty beaches

Kat September 2018
Bring your own beach towel, lemonade and maybe one of those spray bottle fans if you're coming in the summer. We stayed during the warmer months (August-September will always be warm in the area,) so it was very hot. We made due in the morning with the ample fans and opening windows on both sides of the house to create a breeze before it got too hot. Then we cooled off in the River which is just a short adventure down a path to the beach. When it was 86 outside it got up past 90 inside in the afternoon, so we clicked on the AC when we were home for lunch. Perhaps due to the busy season or the guests before us being less than courteous the place was a bit smelly and messy. But beds and bathrooms were clean and fairly cool. The kitchen is new and rather well equipped though I believe still sans a nonstick pan. But we had our own with us from the drive up. Some people might complain that it doesn't have a beach view...but we loved the large open windows that looked to the trees and ridge-line, it prevents it from becoming a fish bowl. And really, you can be on the beach in minutes. We come to Guernville at least annually to do a Burkes Canoe day every year with childhood friends and this is now at the top of the list for the trip. Easily accomodate 3 couples, but it was romantic enough for just us this trip. We brought our two pugs who loved sun bathing on the deck and playing through fence with the neighbors sweet pitbull. (The front room is coolest for crating your pets but has carpet so you must be careful.)

Kayaks were a hit with the kids, very pet friendly.

Mauro August 2018
Hosts were easy to communicate with and helped with our extra needs. The space was pleasant and the use of boats and floats was a great touch. Recommend!

Sherri August 2018
We very much enjoyed our stay. The place was very clean and homey. And the kitchen was, thankfully, very well equipped! A rare, and very much appreciated, bonus for a rental cottage.

What a great place to stay! We really enjoyed the top-notch kitchen - appliances, cookware, dishes, etc. were all high-end. Had a great time cooking at home (bbq is a Weber) and dinner outside most evenings. The deck is wonderful for relaxing and spending some time in the sun reading. The Jacuzzi is a big plus and was sparking clean. The location is quiet and serene. If you like to kayak, this is a great opportunity to do just that. Each morning we took the kayaks out on the Russian River (short walk) - what a great way to start the day! The house is clean and well laid out. The bathrooms are updated as well as the kitchen as I mentioned earlier. There is a washer and dryer - handy if you are in/out of the water during your stay. Also, they have games, books , etc. for your enjoyment. The TV and WIFI worked very well. I'd definitely stay here again!

Great place to stay in and enjoy a nice getaway. Highly recommended. Nice shops and places to dine at close by. Will definitely return!

Jorja April 2018
Nice house, with a great hot tub! We enjoyed our stay :)

Hakop February 2018
The home itself is wonderful. Lots of great bonuses like a nice hottub. Big beautiful deck. A grill. Nice fireplace. The only minus is the location. If you don’t mind being in a residential area, it’s a very nice home. And the hosts are very helpful and nice. Would recommend.

Response from Russian River Getaways February 2018
We're glad you enjoyed Beach Retreat, Hakop, and appreciate the review and feedback. It's think it's good to note that, along the Russian River, all riverfront (and most non-riverfront) homes are in residential neighborhoods. That density is part of the character of this particular vacation destination. -Rachel

The layout of this house was amazing and it made me want to own the place myself. I would rent this place again in the future.

Susan December 2017
We loved the area and being so close to the river. We loved being close to great restaurants and wineries. We appreciated the check in book that gave some great suggestions on where to go and where to eat. The house had everything we needed and was very comfortable and clean.

Anne November 2017
Access to the river and use of the kayaks was a definite plus.

Aubrey October 2017
I think the place is portrayed as remote and quiet and there was quite a bit of road noise. Also basic amenities like a bar of soap would have been appreciated. I asked about a pack n play and I was told I needed to pick it up at the office which was close by. It would have thought it would have been easy to drop it off if the office was close. We were worried about not getting the pack n play before the office closed or other snags so we just brought our own. We went without wifi for the entire weekend which was pretty frustrating when we rely on wifi and the service was very spotty to begin with. Lastly, I was asked to sign a separate agreement outside of airbnb website in order to get check in instructions.

Response from Russian River Getaways October 2017
Thanks for the review and feedback Aubrey. We do apologize about the wifi; your refund should have been processed. Despite the lack of wifi, we hope you enjoyed your stay in this lovely home and area.

The Good: Nice Kitchen, Nice separate bathrooms, great deck. Plenty of room for 4 people (2 couples). The Bad: No internet. In theory it is there but while we could connect to the router, no internet connection was available. We had to drive 35 minutes to Santa Rosa to get an acceptable connection to work for 1 hour. Calls to the office were sent to a recording and the house "book" said to call Comcast, which we did. Guess how that went? 2 hours on the phone and nothing. Air Conditioning. If you want it, it has to be over 90 degrees and you have to call and get a code. We were out during the day so only came back at night and the house was very hot and no one ever answered the phone. Two nights we couldn't sleep until after 1 AM due to the heat. There were fans but it was still way too hot. The misleading: River View. There isn't one despite the nice picture on the profile. All you see are trees. I like trees but thought we had a river view. You can walk to the river but you can't see it from the house. Overall we liked the house but didn't love it for the internet, lack of non-stick pans in the otherwise nice kitchen, lack of air conditioning, lack of river view. If the price was 33% lower it would be a probability of renting again.

Response from Russian River Getaways September 2017
Thanks for the review and feedback, Andrew. We hope you were able to enjoy your stay at Beach Retreat, despite some challenges. It sounds as though your expectations were not met, and, for that, I am sorry. I'm sorry about the internet, but also a little confused, though, because it sounds like, while you called the office, you did not actually speak with anyone who could have helped you, and we have 24/7 urgent care for exactly that purpose. If we received messages left at any time of day, we would have reached back out to you, so I'm not sure what happened there. Also, so you're aware, there is plenty of internet in town, no need to drive all the way to Santa Rosa. Finally, we do say in the description that there is a forest view, not a river view (a river view on a neighborhood beach would also mean a lack of privacy): "Riverfront Property with Forest View." The photo is of the beach itself. In the section for air conditioning, it says: "Air-Conditioning (+ 90 degrees only)." Weekends so hot are fortunately rare. We'll take a look at the pans and get replacements, if needed.

We had four small dogs with us and it was a perfect trip for them and us. We could let them run around as the garden was so secured but enough space for them to play. The house was clean and spacious for us (4 adults and 4 dogs), it is in a very beautiful setting with the river just beyond the trees - we felt very peaceful sat on the large deck.

Erin May 2017
Great location -scenic picture windows on to the back deck with a path to the beach- pretty ideal!

Rebecca April 2017
House is good but the neighborhood was a bit sketchy.

Response from Russian River Getaways April 2017
Thanks for the review Rebecca. All of the River area is colorful (the other side of the sketchy coin) and unique, and not to everyone's taste. I describe it this way...There are a range of dwelling types, and you might rub elbows with a 5th generation River resident, a Silicon Valley scion, and a Generation of Love retiree on the same block. In any case, we're glad you liked the house. Rachel, Russian River Getaways

Kelly December 2016
Great location; my family really enjoyed our stay at the beach retreat. Would definitely return.

Clare October 2016
Everything about this experience was beyond ideal. Communications with the rental company was seamless, early and accurate. They emailed me check-in details with alarm codes two days before our arrival and even provided a handy app. The house was super clean when we arrived. It was the perfect size for our group of 6, the kitchen was very well-equipped, and had all the amenities one could need for a long or short visit. The beds were SO COMFEY too. We loved the proximity to the river and the neighborhood was cute. We'd definitely rent this again. Great little spot.

Ida August 2019
Amazing place!
Claire June 2019
We had a long weekend here with my mum and my 7 month old. Good location v close to Guerneville centre and the rest of Sonoma. Place as per pics - very well appointed, clean, good layout, comfy beds and good shower. Deck and grill were perfect. We were the first people to use the air con unit this year so one of the team came to the property to make sure it was all working as it should. Easy and responsive to communicate with

Gregor March 2019
This is a good space for a quiet getaway or some great dinner parties and BBQs with a group of friends. Great views out the living room and a lovely deck with grill.
