Anna October 2021
Loved this place! Will return

Lisa October 2021
This rental was fantastic - all pictures are as advertised. Beds were comfortable, facilities were clean and the kitchen was stocked with everything you need. Perfect for three couples - we all had private rooms with gas fireplaces and our own bathrooms (only one was an ensuite). But the best part was the views from the back of the house - there were three levels of decks to enjoy it from. You're at the top of a very steep hill with views of the Russian River and surrounding forest where fog regularly rolls in and out. We would all stay here again!

Laurie October 2021
The Palazzo itself is fantastic! The decor is a combination of whimsical and items from around the world - just to my taste. The setting couldn't have been better, with a magnificent view of the Russian River and surrounding valley. This was the view from the kitchen, living room, dining room, the panorama bedroom, a bathroom shower and a smaller common room, as well as from a deck off of the kitchen, a lovely table outside where we ate our lunches, the hot tub and the pool. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen was very well stocked. Wifi was almost as good as at home. Washer, dryer, dishwasher, coffee makers (3) and air conditioning worked well. Landscaping was beautiful and lush. Before we arrived I asked a couple of questions which were promptly answered. We really appreciated the welcome our dogs received. Special thanks for that! The house is set up for 6 people, with 6 chairs around the dining room table, seating for about 6 in the living room and seating for 6 at the outdoor table. (Chairs could be moved if there are more.) Minor points: the road to property is steep, narrow and winding (which is how you get to that fab view!); one bedroom has an en suite bathroom; the other two full baths were not placed with where the bedrooms are in mind. The larger bathroom, with a double sink, has a bathtub, but it is very small. If you are fond of baths, as I am, it's a challenge. There are two floors with a stairway, which is a bit tough on my aging self. Overall, I'd be thrilled to return and I recommend this property!

Krista September 2021
Unbelievable views and accommodations. Cant wait to return! Perfect base for exploring the RRV❤️

William September 2021
The views alone make this a must stay place! Wonderful home, well stocked and one that we would book again and again!

Jesse September 2021
A fantastic get away, with amazing views, and wonderful refreshing pool, and comfortable home in the hills. Would highly recommend!

Laure August 2021
Amazing view home! Private, well appointed and very special; we had a wonderful stay; such a gorgeous view of the river and sundowners by the pool were just magical. Thank you!

Chad July 2021
Just an absolutely beautiful place to rent. The house itself is a little weird for my tastes, eclectic decorations, barely any corners, but man, who cares? This was our second stay there despite the pandemic costs being well higher because it’s really worth it. The pool deck is probably one of the most exquisite places in the entire river valley, and I’m not saying that lightly. It’s magical, beautiful, calming, and an amazing place to spend an afternoon. Beds are comfy, hot tub is great, dining space is amazing, upstairs TV room is very comfy. Panoramic bedroom is the one you want to snatch up if you beat the rest of your party to the house—just FYI. Such a great stay.

Christie June 2021
This property is pure magic. Can’t wait to book it again, we fell in love with the house and Guerneville! Thank you for sharing this amazing property with us!

Todd June 2021
Amazing views, great pool and hot tub

Kristie June 2021
This home is in a beautiful setting, surrounded by redwoods. If I could give the patio and pool area more stars I certainly would. The inside of the home is a bit dated, but it's comfortable and you will have what you need.

Kait June 2021
STUNNING views! Fabulous pool!! Note that the house doesn’t come with cooking basics (foil, Saran, butter, olive oil, salt, pepper etc.) so be sure to bring your own!

Response from Russian River Getaways June 2021
Thanks for the review and feedback, Kait. We are so glad to hear you enjoyed Palazzo. While we don't provide basic food items ourselves, there are usually plenty left in the cabinets from prior guests. Unfortunately, we have had to remove them due to State/County covid restrictions for lodging. Hopefully, this will be over soon as our region opens up more. We appreciate your understanding.

Justin May 2021
This place was perfect for our group of 3 couples. Everyone had their own bedroom and bathroom in the house. The kitchen and common areas were clean and comfortable. The house was also close to the town amenities. It was part of a great trip to wine country.

Alan May 2021
The house was very comfortable & beautiful with stunning views of the river & surrounding mountains. We all loved it & would gladly go back.

Karen May 2021
We came to Russian river, to just relax at this house, enjoy the pool & hot tub. The town is a favorite of ours- great ice cream shop, taco truck is a must, the brewery fantastic, and the mezcal bar wonderful. Enjoy the town, or stay at the house - such a hidden treasure. We will be back to this property- fantastic.

Geert May 2021
Absolutely beautiful property, amazing location, stunning views (pictures don't do it justice). The view from the kitchen is incredible. Lots of places to sit / eat outside as well. The property management company was incredibly responsive and professional - we didn't have any issues, just a couple of questions but they were helpful and answered immediately. The pool is really lovely, seems a bit cold at first but once you get in, it's wonderful! The property is landscaped with sub-tropical planting, lots of butterflies visit the plants. As you are up in the trees, hawks hunt overhead and you get to see them up close - it's important to note this for very small dogs accompanying you too! I would not advise taking a small dog or puppy who does not respect (& stay away from) heights, the deck fencing is wrought iron and has gaps and there is a drop off the edge of the pool. Property is nicely laid out and everything is there that you need to cook - just take your food items including salt, sugar, teabags etc. We also took our own pool towels but they are provided if you agree to launder before you leave. Really enjoyed our stay, very impressed, and we will be back!

Hennah April 2021
Absolutely loved this place! It was gorgeous and the perfect place to enjoy wine country and beautiful Mountain View's

Shan April 2021
Amazing views at a one of a kind property.

Tim March 2021
Views are unparalleled. Beautiful home in a great location. Road up to the house is very steep. Quite a lot of house rules.

David March 2021
the view is just as fabulous as the pictures show....great place to hang and unwind for a few days. dining out on the deck in the sunshine is a highlight..

Panan March 2021
What a beautiful house, the view is great just as promised. You could tell someone put a lot of time and effort into decorating the house. Everything was cleaned and prepped for our arrival and we had no complaints about the house. Wish the pool was open for use but it's another reason to come back for a visit in May!

Matthew February 2021
The Palazzo offers an incredible view of the Russian River and easy access to local attractions. Everything is as described and the common spaces were easily able to accommodate our group of 5.

Jared February 2021
Amazing, the pictures don’t do it justice.

Yue December 2020
It’s a nice property with an awesome view. I would recommend and visit again, but hopefully the dishwasher and pool are functional next time.

Hugo November 2020
Great views - good place to rest and relax.

Roisin November 2020
This place is just outstanding, the views are unbelievable! Waking up and looking out over the valley made the entire stay worth it but the house itself is lovely too. The outdoor spaces are quiet and decorated, nice to sit outside with a glass of wine in the evening or breakfast in the mornings. The decor is quirky but I liked it, the house has everything you could want, my stay here was perfect! I can’t say enough good things, the communication with the host company was fast and regular, they kept me informed of everything I’d need to know and any updates the entire time leading up to and during the stay, it was greatly appreciated. Highly recommend!!!

Amanda October 2020
I’ll start by saying don’t drive a lower vehicle to the home you will regret it with all the hills and slopes, thankfully we had a four-wheel-drive truck. When we 1st walked up to the home the outside it very pretty nice landscaping, walking in the home had a funky old smell to it, the furniture was definitely older not a huge deal, but over the house is outdated and hasn’t had any TLC in a while, The glass shower doors in both bathrooms were off so when closing the glass banged into each other, the shower head was rusted and gross, cobwebs , window seals dirty, baseboards dirty, walls going up the staircase dirty, All the carpets nasty! Need to be replaced a while ago! Old mattresses so don’t expect a great night sleep! , I find it hard to believe that the home was deep clean prior to us arriving and at the rate we are paying for cleaning fees is why I’m complaining! For $650 a night with all the extra fees I have some expectations! I’ve stayed in many much nicer homes for the same cost, they did a good job of taking nice photos of the home! The view is the only thing it had going ! I won’t be back , I’m not one to complain but I’m writing this for the next guest so they know what they are getting ! The home has potential if someone put some money back into especially with the cost to rent the home! 2k for 3 nights I think I have the right to say what I’ve said !

Response from Russian River Getaways October 2020
Thank you for the feedback, Amanda. While the house is certainly not perfect, most folks seem to find some of joy in their stay there, so hopefully you were able to find something you enjoyed along with the few items you found problematic. -Rachel

Marisol October 2020
Fully stocked and very clean .

Ron October 2020
It was reasonably priced, however this once proud and stunning property has fallen into some disrepair and is now run by a management company. It’s a shame, as it would not cost much to bring the property back to its former glory. The pool was promised to be heated, but it was cold and not very clean. The spa was not working. The dishwasher was not working. A number of the towels smelled bad, and this could be due to the fact that they have the guests wash them when they check out. No Wi-Fi downstairs, where all the bedrooms are, so we all kept going upstairs to get WiFi There was a bad switch in the large lower floor bathroom - the slider control was arcing and emitting ozone. This did stop after moving the switch back and forth several times. There were no chair cushions on the metal chairs outside the kitchen. There was no facial tissue, so you better bring your own. The thermal coffee pot was very scorched on the bottom, which imparted a bad flavor to the coffee. Peeling paint on beams holding up cantilevered porches. Carpet on the spiral staircase was dirty. Needs some simple upgrades like 6 matching wine glasses, some rocks glasses for spirits, matching spoons and forks, a set of measuring spoons, etc. We did get a refund of $225 due to the non working spa and dishwasher. They did get the spa fixed on our last day, but it’s pretty clear the property is in serious need of minor upgrades. What was surprising, is it would not cost all that much to bring it up to its full potential. Again, the property is reasonably priced, and has nice architectural details and artwork on the top floor, but is really looking for some investment and TLC. Might be worth it for bargain hunters, but we were disappointed.

Cassius September 2020
This place is a must stay. 5 mins away from the Safeway as well as the some of the greatest pies you’ll ever have. Lots of room for multiple cars. Has an amazing view. You are able to see the Russian River from the pool and hot tub as well as the redwoods. The owners were very easy to get in contact with when we needed directions. This place deserves more then the 5 stars available.

Jarren September 2020
My wife is an AirBnB maniac and has had her eye on the Palazzo Marzino for some time now, but wanted to save it for her 30th birthday. We had a phenomenal time staying at this property and would love to stay again in the future! Thank you again for the thoughtful touches and wonderful amenities.

Kelly August 2020
This place is amazing!! Even better than the pictures. Perfect vacation. We really loved staying here and will definitely rent again!

Joaquin August 2020
Phenomenal location, a very unique architecture and unmatched view. Great swimming pool too. Very clean, fantastic communication. This was an amazing experience. Highly recommended.

Krista July 2020
This home is gorgeous and the view is stunning. Beds were comfortable, the decor is interesting/attractive, furnishings are a bit dated (including kitchenware), it’s a quiet neighborhood and the outdoor spaces are all very comfortable and enjoyable. The lounge chairs by the pool were wonderful! The hot tub is spacious. The pool, although “heated,” was very cold, however gorgeous to sit by. Pets are welcome, but there is not a lot of flat space for them to roam. There are also several levels and stairs so not a good fit for any people or animals with mobility challenges. The downside to our week stay was we had a few issues with cleanliness (in bathrooms and common areas); a freezer that did not properly keep our food frozen, therefore having to throw out a lot of food; a dishwasher that was on the fritz then finally stopped working the day before departure, requiring a lot of hand washing; the worst was the grill caught on fire at the beginning of our stay (we believe there was a faulty gas line from grill to propane tank, but aren’t positive), requiring us to use a fire extinguisher and call the fire department. Although we were safe, it was extremely scary. I called the host immediately and they were sorry to hear this, but not overly concerned as it was a weekend evening. The next morning I never heard from them so reached out again. I had to ask for a replacement grill, which they delivered that day (without any grilling tools like a cleaning brush - the original burned and melted during the fire). Also, they never asked if we were okay. It was only after reporting these issues and specifically asking for a partial refund that we receive a very small one, but we expected quite a bit more given the issues we experienced. Our stay was less than what we expected and paid for. I even messaged the host directly with a few suggestions to help them keep with their home and never received a response. The communication from the host was adequate, but certainly not what I expected from a super host. I prefer to communicate with a host directly if there are issues and not use this forum, but I do think it is important for them to make improvements before another guest has to deal with all we did. The home needs deep cleaning (dirty bathrooms, filthy window sills throughout, plethora of cobwebs in and out of home, dirty stained carpet and old towels throughout) and TLC. I would love to go back to this home, but would ask a lot more questions about how/when they serviced the appliances , if they all work and if any updates were made. We paid too much, even after the small refund they provided.

Response from Russian River Getaways July 2020
Thank you for the review and feedback, Krista. We are glad you found a few things to enjoy about Palazzo. Little of what you describe is the typical experience of the house, as is evident in the many excellent reviews. The dishwasher was dying and is being replaced next week. We could not detect any problem with the freezer on your departure, and subsequent guests have not brought any issue to our attention. We're not sure what happened with the grill, but we do sincerely apologize for your experience, and, of course, are glad everyone was alright. We reached out by late morning, as soon as we had procured a new grill to bring you. A simple phone call would have brought you a grill brush. We wish that we and Palazzo had better lived up to your expectations, and certainly there were some challenges, as can happen with houses, but it also seems as though perhaps the house was also just not a good fit for your family. -Rachel

Graham July 2020
Alyssa and everyone at Russian River Getaways are amazing. They were always quick to respond and incredibly helpful. The palazzo was incredibly clean and the perfect place to escape the city and relax. Couldn't recommend staying here or at any of their other properties enough. Thanks again!

Julie March 2020
Great place! Definitely looking forward to renting this place sometime this summer! Amazing views, beautiful space, and a great location.

Response from Russian River Getaways March 2020
We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay at Palazzo, Julie! Thanks for the review and feedback. -Rachel

Ariana February 2020
Beautiful home with lovely views.

Terrence February 2020
Fantastic place to stay. Unfortunately the cleaning prior was not great.

Response from Russian River Getaways February 2020
We apologize for any issues with cleaning, Terrence, but do appreciate the review and feedback. We're glad you enjoyed your stay. -Rachel

Megan January 2020
We had such a great time! Some of the dishes were a bit dirty and some of the light switches were mislabeled but otherwise our stay was amazing. The view was spectacular. The jacuzzi was hot and clean. The amenities were all working and the kitchen had plentiful cooking utensils. The bedrooms were clean and cozy and the house binder was organized and helpful. Highly recommended.

Response from Russian River Getaways January 2020
Thank you for the review and your feedback, Megan. We'll follow up with the housekeeper about the dishes and check out the light switches. Guests do their own dishes, but we do try to give them a onceover to make sure they're in good shape. -Rachel

Larry January 2020
To say this is a unique property is to undersell its magic. I've stayed in many airbnb's (in many countries). I've truly never come across another home so wonderfully and quirk-fully designed and decorated. I visited with two friends for several days, and there were probably 20 different comments about the vision that went into the architecture, interior design and landscaping. It's hard NOT to appreciate the wonder of this place. There is some evidence that the house is owned by a company that owns many airbnbs. (The instruction book in the house looks quite corporate with the name some vacation company on the cover). And that is really surprising because when you are in the place, it seems obvious that it was designed (inside and out) by a really remarkable individual. Someone who spent decades collecting the strange and the beautiful. It seems almost the manifestation of that person's long-held dreams. And so all the bizarre elements work together. The house is like a medieval court-jester's mini-castle that sprouts from the duff like one of the redwoods. A weird and magical place. My main criticism (which for us was significant) is that I thought the pool would be open. In fact, it was the pictures of the pool that sold us on the place. But the fine print says the pool is closed fall and winter. I didn't catch that in the listing and was really disappointed. (The picture should absolutely be removed during the winter months). But if you are coming during sprint/summer, my gosh, you will be amazed.

Response from Russian River Getaways January 2020
Thank you for the review and feedback, Larry. We are glad you found Palazzo so appealing. Palazzo is a personal vacation home well-loved by its owners, managed by us (some vacation company;-). We do say in all the right up front places possible that the pool is seasonal and solar heated, as we want folks to know what to expect. We are sorry that you were disappointed, nonetheless, and hope you'll be back to enjoy the pool in season. -Rachel

Monet December 2019
This views from this place are really breathtaking. The establishment is clean and comfortable. The management office was helpful over the phone. We were pleased. Also, we were grateful to stay during a popular holiday which, was a nice bonus. Most places we looked at did not allow this. Just a heads up though. This place has steep stairs inside and out. The patron should know this and take caution. I can’t imagine being elderly and trying to take that on (all the bedrooms are downstairs). We had no problems, but I thought I should mention it if you’re traveling with an older crowd. Anyhow, we thank the Palazzo and hope to return some time soon

Response from Russian River Getaways December 2019
We appreciate the review and feedback, Monet, and are glad you enjoyed your holiday at Palazzo. We hope you are able to return, and next time, please know that you can call us any time for help with any issues, even minor ones. -Rachel

Garrett December 2019
Great beautiful location and a beautiful home! Thank you so much for the hospitality, we had a great stay and an amazing weekend! Definitely recommend 10/10!

Stephanie December 2019
Wow. If you're looking for a gorgeous stay in the Redwoods this is it. Really epic views and everything in the house is so unique. The covered jacuzzi was a big hit since it was pouring when we were there, but we were still able to enjoy it! Beds were super comfy and all the fireplaces made it very cozy. I can only imagine what it's like when it's not raining! Some of the dishes and pots/pans were dirty when we arrived but other than that it was FANTASTIC. It's not too far from Sebastopol so we stopped at the Whole Foods there for groceries on our way in and for brunch on our way out-- how perfect! Highly, highly recommend.

Accurate description. Unbelievable views and a beautiful and spacious property.

Sean November 2019
Spectacular views! So many amenities and comfort. Wish we could have stayed for much longer, and will be back again and again!!

Bryan October 2019
Great house in a great location for our trip with two other couples. We had to vacate a day early due to a wildfire and power outages, but the host company kept us informed and promptly refunded the final night’s rent due to the circumstances. Highly recommend this home and host!

Susan October 2019
This home is architecturally very interesting as the pictures depict! The views are terrific of the river and the lush mountains on the other side of the Russian River. The landscaping is lovely but do remember, the pool is not usable as it is not heated. The home is equipped with everything you would need (except saran wrap! ;-))! All the beds are very comfortable! Be aware that the King bedroom feels like a cave with one tiny window above a door which opens to the side of the house under a small deck, hence dark. One Queen bedroom has beautiful views, but no en-suite bathroom! The other Queen bedroom is interior with no view and no en-suite bathroom which is down the hall. The drive up is VERY steep, and longer than any of us anticipated after reading the description. Therefore, not conducive to making any "quick runs" to the store! Nice kitchen and living area and dining room space filed with lots of great world art and sculptures! The rental company was terrific in responding quickly any time we had any questions! Enjoy your stay!

Tim October 2019
The view is everything with with this house and it makes the space a real find. It’s about 25 minutes to the heart of wine country in Sonoma so the location (atop a very, very steep hillside!) is excellent. Comfortable bedrooms, a good kitchen and terraces with breathtaking views. We enjoyed it very much!

Donna October 2019
Amazing view of the Russian River! Uniquely designed & decorated home. Great energy in every room. We all enjoyed watching the woodpeckers packing the berries in the redwood trees off the deck!

Matthew September 2019
Beautiful property, car is essential to get around as Uber/Lyft wouldn't pickup in the area, but if that's not an issue don't hesitate to book this great property high up above the Russian River for exploring all Sonoma has to offer.

John September 2019
This is a spectacular home in an amazing location tucked in the redwoods. It's seductive in that once there you really don't want to leave! A perfect place to rejuvenate and relax.

Robert September 2019
This was truly the most spectacular Airbnb I’ve ever stayed in. Really, amazing. From the view to the decor to the hospitality... all excellent!

Joan September 2019
Beautiful House with great views,. Make sure pool functioning and Barbeque ,if these are important to you.

Heidi August 2019
We very much enjoyed our stay. The views from the home are amazing. We enjoyed relaxing on the decks and patios after our days spent hiking and exploring the area. The house is beautiful and close to town.

Krista July 2019
House was sparkling clean and the views were amazing.

Ami July 2019
Nice place

Davida July 2019
Loved loved loved our stay. Amazing comfortable home with a beautiful view of the trees and river below. A+ from me, my family and little dog who also found comfort in Palazzo.

Annie July 2019
Beautifully unique home with stunning views. We had such a lovely time! Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Jesse June 2019
Solid spot. Beautiful views.

Sarah May 2019
The Palazzo was a beautiful place to stay. We all had a wonderful time! The views were truly incredible, and the home was well designed with many interesting details that were fun to discover (many items from the owners' travels).

Ellen May 2019
Great venue - Accommodated 6 of us nicely - The weather was a bit on the cool side so only used the pool minimally - Breathtaking views -

Caroline May 2019
The view is fantastic, it's a perfect retreat up in the hills, not far to wineries and also the coast, a fabulous location, highly recommend.

Heidi May 2019
The space was amazing and we felt so lucky to be part of someone’s very special home. The location was absolutely incredible! Could not have asked for a better stay

Joaquin April 2019
This place is truly EPIC. I would come back to just spend time at this home. It has one of the most beautiful views and the house is really well equipped to cook. Bravo!

Erika April 2019
Great house! We will be back!

Alycia April 2019
Lovely spot in the woods, very tranquil and gorgeous views. The drive up is very narrow and steep so agree on trying to arrive during the day. Great open kitchen and grill for cooking meals. Enjoyed our stay.

Ramona March 2019
Beautiful views! The pictures do not do it justice. We had a ladies weekend to celebrate a 40th birthday party, and could not have asked for a better place. Every item in the house looks like it was cherished by the owner. Also, it's a short drive to wonderful wineries, Armstrong Redwoods Natural Reserve, and good restaurants. We'd love to visit again.

David March 2019
We really really enjoyed our stay at the Palazzo!! We had 3 couples that very much enjoyed our stay. We used the Palazzo as our home base as we enjoyed the Russian River area to enjoy a beautiful area, great people, lots of great wineries and brew pubs - not to mention all the natural beauty from the coast to Armstrong park which is just a few miles away. Great morning of hiking at Armstrong Redwoods State Park, just a few miles away, before heading out for a day of wine tasting. The home is very well appointed, has an amazing view, was great for a couples weekend! We enjoyed cooking for 6 in a comfortable kitchen with a nicely situated table so everyone could take part in the cooking and conversation!! We'd have no questions staying at the Palazzo if we had the opportunity to visit again!!

Luciano March 2019
Great place, great views. Clean! Perfect for family trips. Host has great communication. Definitely would recommend.

Eric January 2019
Amazing place with a great location. House is beautiful with amazing views great access to the river and coast.

Jahsan December 2018
worth the money

Stacy November 2018
Views are spectacular, just fantastic, you cannot do better. We were there during torrential rain just after the fires so we couldn't enjoy the gorgeous views as much as we would have liked but our situation/timing was highly unusual. You can't miss with this place. House is well stocked. Town is close, and adorable. We were a party of six and there was plenty of room to spare. Yes, it is hard to find, and Yes, don't arrive after dark on your first visit.

Rick November 2018
The house is beautiful and the view is spectacular. You'll have to drive up a steep hill to get there, but it's worth it! The design and layout are unique, with all three bedrooms downstairs, but one of the bathrooms (with a shower) upstairs. The kitchen, living and dining area are spacious and comfortable. We hope to go back someday.

Nick November 2018
Breathtaking views in an amazing space! Excellent communication from host. Voluminous notes available to explain every detail of this exquisitely cared for property. Check in and out were a breeze! Highly recommended!

Kendal October 2018
We stretched our budget a bit to stay here because we fell in love with the online photos. Happily, we were not disappointed. The home was as lovely as advertised, and little touches like providing laundry detergent and lots of explanatory notes, as well as a welcome note and bottle of wine, made it extra special. But the highlight was the view! Wow. Stunning. Our main reason for the trip was wine-tasting, and we were delighted to discover there were so many wineries nearby -- ones that we might never have discovered if we had done the usual and stuck to the Napa area. The Dry Creek region is now among our favorites. The town of Guerneville is just down the hill and has some gritty edges, but it also has a Safeway, some good restaurants and fun pubs. Brace yourself for a steep (and I mean very steep!) drive up the hill to the house, but other than that, all was perfect.

Earl October 2018
An amazing two-day weekend away from the hustle and bustle of the city, 3 couples and there was so much space! Everything was well thought out from the decor to all the instructions left for us, we didn't skip a beat. The welcome note and gift was a nice touch and the views...ugh...breathtaking! I can't wait to come back.

Gregory September 2018
Views are magnificent and everything else is perfect.

Teddy & Tiffany September 2018
A dream! We were two couples and a 1yr old, and we really enjoyed our time at the Palazzo. The views are incredible, the location is close to town, and the whole house has everything you could possibly need. Rooms were clean, cozy and thoughtfully appointed. Kitchen was well stocked with a variety of silverware/pool friendly cups, pantry items (spices, oil, flour), kitchen appliances (grill, blender, toaster etc). Hot tub and pool were perfect. It was so hard to leave! We can’t wait to be back.

Polly June 2018
Loved staying at Palazzo! Everything was perfect! Spectacular views, beautiful house, we had an amazing time! I would definitely rent this property again! Wish we could've stayed for a week!

Jas June 2018

You can expect peace,quiet, comfort enveloped in artful surroundings. The town and surrounding area is charming. The house is well appointed and the management company first rate. A truly 5 Star experience.

Keith May 2018
Fantastic place. Views are incredible. Kitchen is great - fantastic appliances and well stocked. We’ll certainly be back at some point!

Jessica April 2018
We all thought it was even more amazing than the photos. The bottle of wine and card was a lovely touch. Thanks for sharing your home with me and my friends for my birthday. We will have to come back when it’s warm enough to use the pool.

Shelby April 2018
The house is spectacular and the view is beautiful! I'm excited to go back when the pool is open ;)

Liz April 2018
A magical getaway! This property has absolutely stunning views of the Redwoods and Russian River. Woke up each morning feeling like we were in the clouds. House is super funky, with lots of interesting pieces and amazing architecture. Fireplace is every room was lovely. Beautiful, open, clean space. Close to main st guerneville and not to far from downtown healdsburg and lots of wineries. Would absolutely reco!

Todd January 2018
Great place for a few couples. The views are amazing and the house is super interesting... very eclectic/quirky in a good way. We’ll be back.

Shellie September 2017
This is a spectacular place to stay. The views are breathtaking and the pool, hot tub and house were exceptional. The perfect place for a girls getaway. Thank you!

Alec September 2017
This spot somehow has the elusive luxury of being both secluded AND close to the action. The interior was beautiful and full of art. The pool and view were a dream. The whole space was expansive, comfortable and had everything we needed for our holiday. Location-wise, you are situated toward the top of a hill just off of the main strip of Guerneville, so you are far enough to not hear the hustle and bustle of the road, but still only about a 3 minute drive away. Really great private getaway. I will definitely be back.

Nicole July 2017
Beautiful, fun house. We loved seeing here and enjoyed a quiet getaway with our kids among the gorgeous redwoods. We truly insulted by staying here.

Mark May 2017
The house was great! The views are INSANE and the pool and other facilities were fantastic!

Robert May 2017
Our stay at Palazzo Marzino was fabulous! The house looks just like the pictures and felt very homey with the eclectic art from all over the world and the cozy fireplaces in each bedroom. No picture can do those views justice, however. The house sits near the top of a hill, nestled amongst redwoods overlooking the river. I could sit and stare out at that view all day! So beautiful and peaceful. Check-in and check-out were a breeze, they send you all the info ahead of time and even have an app you can download for additional info on the area. Cell reception can be an issue in that area, but not in the house itself, where the Wi-Fi was strong. Location was great, just drive down the hill and you're one minute from the center of Guerneville w/ a Safeway grocery store and several restaurants. We had dinner at Boone and Seaside Metal, and they were both great. The biscuits from Big Bottom Cafe are Oprah's favorite, and I see why. They were very good. Ice cream and pie from Guerneville Bank Club was delicious (the strawberry balsamic pie is sublime). Guerneville is about 45 minutes from Napa, but the drive is lovely. There are also tons of Sonoma and Russian River wineries that are much closer. We enjoyed the house so much that we didn't explore as many as we would have liked, but that just gives us something to look forward to when we book next time. This was our third trip to the Russian River area, but the first time at this house. Our unanimous consensus was that Palazzo Marzino will be the place we stay anytime we come back for a visit!

Jamie April 2017
We stayed here for a girls weekend from San Francisco and it was absolutely perfect. The view is incredible, the home is spacious and well equipped. Rooms are comfortable and kitchen is great. Overall 5 star experience, we can't wait to go back.

Beth December 2016
What a view from this home! When you wake up in the morning the fog covers the valley and you can watch it lift while having your coffee. We enjoyed cooking various meals from the well equiped kitchen and were cozy with a fireplace in every room. The home is convenient to town but also the ocean, wineries and country beyond. Would love to come back when we can use the pool :)

Leann June 2016
Overall, a great stay in a great home. The views were incredible and amenities as described. We loved being able to bring out four-legged family member which was a highlight for us. We only wish the solar heat was working on the pool as it was too cold to use. And, the hodge podge of artwork, styles and masks was detracting inside. We appreciated the really steep hillside on which to walk our dog - got an extra workout each time we went out! Pricey, but overall all, worth it.

Nick April 2016
The Good: Palazzo Marzano is a delightfully unusual property with eclectic art, a great hot tub and pool, and stunning views of the Russian River valley. The property is mainly constructed of two vertical cylinders that are then cut up into various rooms, which makes the rooms themselves very odd (but not bad) shapes; there isn't a rectangular room in the whole house. The art comes from all over the world. Internet is fast and easy, and there are games and cable TV to enjoy. The kitchen is well-stocked with amenities. The beds are comfortable, and the bathroom towels are awesome and soft. The bad: The fees on this place are just awful. Shame on me for not paying closer attention before we rented. The cleaning fee is astronomical, and doesn't include cleaning everything, particularly, and very strangely, spa/pool towels. For some inexplicable reason, you have to do those yourself. There is also a nonrefundable damage waiver in addition to the security deposit; you basically pay $50 for no reason whatsoever (which is totally unreasonable) in addition to any money they take out of your security deposit should you damage something (which is of course totally reasonable.) I wouldn't rent here again without adjustment of those two policies.

Response from Russian River Getaways April 2016
Thanks so much for taking the time to provide this feedback, Nick! We're glad you enjoyed your stay at Palazzo Marzino. We understand your concerns regarding the cleaning fee/damage waiver and would like to clarify some possible misunderstandings. The cleaning fee includes the house cleaning with 11% bed tax as well as the damage waiver (which covers any accidental damages up to $2,000). The cleaning fee is unable to be based on the length of stay as our house cleaners perform a thorough clean after each guest's departure, regardless of how many nights they stay. Because we have a damage waiver, we do not charge a security deposit for any reservations. Please contact Airbnb at your earliest convenience if you believe you've been charged for a security deposit related to this reservation. Thanks again for your feedback and we hope this offers some clarity!

Jessica November 2015
It was wonderful..! The space, the house was outstanding. The design and the layout of the house was so great. Very spacious, very cozy, wonderful hot tub, pool, and the best views we could have ever asked for. Definitely want to come back again..!

Navi November 2015
My friends and I had a amazing stay at this beautiful home. We were greeted with a bottle of white Chardonnay and a welcome card really made us feel welcomed. House is easy to find, instructions were pretty clear, very much appreciated that pets are welcomed, gorgeous views, nice rooms, truly appreciated that kitchen was fully equipped. I wish the decks had some sort of net to protect toy breed pets from the danger of falling off. I noticed the neighbors had that and found that very neat and a safe option for tiny pets. Most likely would go back again.

Howard August 2018
Just go and stay here - it is as simple as that !1

"Beautiful home perched about the Russian River"

4 of 5

The house is beautifully constructed and furnished. It is perfect for 6 guests. Our first hurdle was getting up the hill in a fully loaded minivan after the rain. Luckily a neighbor told us an alternate route that wasn't as steep of a grade (Mc Lean or Mc Lane St). The second day we decided to stay in and just enjoy the home and fireplaces instead of venturing out in the rain. Luckily we did a grocery run the night before and had plenty of food and wine for the tastings the day before. The day we checked out, there was a power outage, so the only issue wasn't being able to use the fireplace except for one bedroom. Luckily the stove is gas, so I was able to boil water for coffee and make breakfast. My 75 y/o mom-in-law freaked out a little and we told her we were glamping, so she got over it.

"Lovely house, terrific views!"

5 of 5

This house is different from most of the other properties available for rent in the Russian River Valley. Great attention had been given to the details here. The decorating tends to the eclectic, but suits the property well. The views are beautiful. The white carpets mentioned in the initial description have been largely replaced by dark hardwood. The property is very near Guerneville, but accessed by a very narrow, steep lane.

Beautiful house, great location, wonderful views. But it has only one bedroom with en suite bathroom and the pool was unusable because it was so cold.

My husband and I really enjoyed the hot tub. It is completely private and with a great view. The pool is not as secluded, but such an amazing experience with the view of the redwoods. The interior is insane. It has wonders from around the world and I couldn't help but to take pictures of everything! I loved it so much and did not want to leave- ever! The house, in itself, was the pleasure.

"Wake up in the mountains!"

4 of 5

The house was super! Amazing view from each of the main rooms in the house and one of the bedrooms! Lots of natural light! Very cozy rooms, plenty of space! Hot tub also overlooks same river view. Easy trip of 25min to healdsburg; quite a drive elsewhere for wineries except for a handful within ten minutes. Few places in town a few minutes away to eat, but not much else. Must bring all toiletries and purchase lots of supplies as far as condiments, etc for fully functional kitchen. Great, absolutely quiet neighborhood on a very steep incline. Party of six stayed in March and we all loved it!

"Delightful weekend with friends!"

5 of 5

Our party of four wanted to start the New Year off right by spending a few days at the Russian River. We were thrilled with our stay at Palazzo Marzino. The views are magnificent and because the house is situated in the tree tops there were all sorts of birds circling around. The house was supremely appointed with antiques and art from all over the world making for a warm and inviting get away. We had to call the rental agency because we couldn't figure out how to start the four fire places and they immediately sent someone out to help us out. It's also very close to downtown Guerneville making it very convenient for quick trips to and fro. We would definitely come back and would like to see it during the summer.

"Wonderful house with a great view."

5 of 5

We stayed here with two other couples for our official empty nest trip. We loved the views from the house and the pool and hot tub were a plus. It was nice to be able to sit together and watch tv and just visit after our day of tastings. We cooked breakfast each morning and supper one night. The kitchen was great and well equipped. We really enjoyed our stay and can't wait to come back. We stayed in Sonoma and visited Napa and it did not compare to the Russian River area.

"View of the Russian River"

5 of 5

This home is incredible. The owners have supplied the home with everything you could possibly need during your stay. The view of the Russian River is beautiful. We watched eagles flying while sitting on "one" of the patios. The tv reception is not as good downstairs in the bedrooms. We had "fun" playing our Farkle game by candlelight when the electricity went out for 24 hours. We were able to grill and use the gas stove for dinner. It is well worth the money.

We're so glad you enjoyed Palazzo and hope you'll come back. Thanks for the great review. -Rachel

"Stunning view, we felt like one of the falcons who flew at our l"

4 of 5

We had a really wonderful time in the house. The decor is beautiful, the view stunning and we will definitely return.The bedrooms are arranged in a slightly unusual way with only one bedroom having a decent view. None of them are very big and two of them are at the back of the house with small windows to the next door house . Great bathrooms though and a lot of attention to decor and detail. The number of remote controls for each television was mind boggling (sometimes 3 per television) and too confusing for us. The kitchen is terrific and we cooked most nights, well stocked and very easy to be in. The outdoor table is on a different level to the barbeque and kitchen so that is also a bit weird as there is no easy access to it. We never used it, in fact we always ate in the kitchen as we were using the dining room as a desk for two laptops as there is no desk area in the house. The pool is lovely too and is regularly maintained. All in all I would highly recommend the house and as I said, we will be returning. There is nothing else like it that we have seen or stayed in.

"Beautiful home"

4 of 5

We stayed here as we were taking in the Vineman 70.3 so the location was perfect. The house was beautiful and the pictures do not really do it justice, you have be there to witness how amazing the views are and how great the house is. If I had to give constructive critisism it would be that we showed up at night and we had a bit of difficulty finding the house, so maybe an automatic light above the numbers would help. The other thing to mention would be that the house was very very clean however you could tell the last people that stayed had a dog or dogs as the sheets had quite allot of dog hair on them, and anyone with dogs knows how sheets attract dog hair. We pulled the sheets off and rewashed them and that fixed the problem. However, everything about the house was amazing, we would definitley stay here again.

Manager Response:

We're so glad you enjoyed this home so much. I'll pass your suggestion about the lights on to the owner; and we'll speak with the cleaner about checking the sheets for dog hair. Dogs are not allowed on beds, but sometimes people do not follow the rules. We look forward to having you back. -Rachel, Russian River Getaways

"Perfect home for 3 couples"

4 of 5

We enjoyed this fantastic home with an amazing view located in the heart of the area we planned to visit. The pool and hot tub added to the fun we had with our friends. Three bedrooms with 3 full baths made it perfect for the 3 couples on our trip. We enjoyed being able to cook our meals and relax in the evenings. The a/C quit working - which made the basement bedrooms uncomfortable but we assume they will get that fixed. Overall it was a fantastic place for a getaway and if we ever plan to visit the area again, we would go back to the Palazzo Marzino in a heartbeat.

Manager Response:

The view from Palazzo Marzino of the Russian River as it snakes through Guerneville is absolutely spectacular. It's a magnificent home to relax and enjoy some peace and quiet. Come back again!
We're sorry about the A/C not working for you. We have noted that and will get it repaired.

Palazzo Marzino was even more beautiful than the pictures! The views were amazing!!! We enjoyed all of the fire places and enjoyed sipping on the nice bottle of wine that was left for us. The location is perfect for going in to Healdsburg, Dry Creek Valley and the Russian River Valley as well!! I must mention that the entire staff at Russian River Getaways was extremely helpful in getting our place booked! They were always available with any questions we had via phone or email. We are looking forward to returning again soon!! :-)

"Pallazzo Marzino is a beautiful home with fabulous views, provid"

5 of 5

The reservation experience was easy and all the information provided on-line and by e-mail was very helpful. The home and local area delivered on all accounts. Palazzo Marzino is absolutely beautiful and very comfortable. We loved the gas fireplaces, spent relaxing times on the deck and enjoyed the hot tub. the kitchen was very well-stocked for the evening we prepared our dinner on the grill. We visited Guerneville, Armstrong Woods, Goats Head Beach, Korbel, Kendall-Jackson and a couple of smaller wineries, ate dinner in Healdsburg and ventured to Sonoma to shop and hike in a local park. All of this in a 4 day weekend! We flew in and out of Sacramento, visited Old Town Sacramento and drove through the UC Davis campus. I think we all thoroughly enjoyed our visit and would come back again.

Manager Response:

Wow, thanks for sharing all your positive thoughts about Palazzo Marzino, our service and our wonderful area. If you're ever back this way, please do visit with us again! -general manager
