Erma November 2021
What an amazing stay. Kitchen appliances were stocked, hot tub was awesome, the view was amazing, and the place was clean. Will be staying here again!

Alina October 2021
Just what we were looking for in a weekend getaway. The house is located at the top of a steep incline which allows for incredible views from the back deck. It was furnished with everything we needed for a few days away. I really enjoyed how quiet and peaceful the neighborhood was. It was also within a 20 min drive of hiking and wineries and the immediate town had some cute restaurants and cafes. Would definitely come back and stay again.

Mark September 2021
Wow what an amazing view, great pool, great hot tub, awesome location. This place had just about everything you might ever want in an Airbnb. Thanks so much for hosting.

Johanne September 2021
We really enjoyed our stay, the view was lovely and we enjoyed the pool and hot tub.

Michael September 2021
The location is just incredible perched up on the mountain top and a close drive into town and wine county.

Justin August 2021
Amazing place. Close to town. The description was very accurate. The views were absolutely beautiful.

Sarah August 2021
Lovely, clean, well appointed home with a stellar view of the Russian River valley. The kitchen had everything we needed and it was great to have the gas grill right off the kitchen on the deck. The pool and hot tub were clean and well maintained during our stay. The bedrooms were comfortable for everyone in the family. The location was great for going to activities and restaurants in the area. The owners had responsive communication and cared about us having great stay. We are looking forward to coming back again. The stars at night are gorgeous.

Sheela August 2021
Sweet home and amazing view. The place was just spacious enough, and had everything we needed for a comfy stay. The pool and hot tub were also great! We will definitely be back!

Tiffany August 2021
The views were amazing, the beds were comfortable and clean, and our kids loved the pool. What more could you ask for? We can’t wait to go back.

Radhika July 2021
My husband, daughter (2.5 yrs) and I had a wonderful stay! We even had some friends over to hang by the pool and have dinner and everyone was blown away by the view and great layout.

Cassandra July 2021
The VIEW! The living space was perfectly set up for entertaining, I’m pretty sure we didn’t leave the pool between the hours of 12 and 4pm, and did I mention the view? Fair warning, we did see a few rather large spiders on the property, but you are in the woods so that is to be expected. A great place for a couples getaway!

Travis July 2021
Awesome spot! View, hot tub, pool, pleasant garden, quiet location. What more could you ask for?

Julia June 2021
The garden and views from the back deck are soooooo beautiful. Great place to relax with family, close to so much! Very relaxing:).

John June 2021
This is a very nice house on top of Summit. Amazing view of the river and redwoods. The pool was okay to cool off when it gets hot, and the hot tub was great when it gets cool in the evening. The barbecue and deck came in handy, and the kitchen was well stocked. The bed was very comfortable and I appreciated the blackout shade for a good night sleep.

Zack May 2021
Nice views of the river.

Andrew May 2021
Great views! The place is a delightful retreat. Nice, clean place with everything as described. Would definitely stay again.

Joty April 2021
Perfect Place to get away with a group! The house is absolutely amazing, has everything you could need. Only feedback I would give is wish I knew additional "outdoor" towels were not available for hot tub and pool. Would have packed my own, instead of having to purchase them.

Joe April 2021
As a nearly vaccinated family, we decided to take a few days to relax and enjoy the Russian River area. Great house for us. Very clean and nice. The view from the back porch is beautiful. Our dog sat out there all day, taking in the sun and fantasizing about catching all the cool birds flying by. The layout is great to all hang even if one is cooking, another studying and another watching a baseball game. Everything was really clean which is always cool - the kitchen, the bedrooms, the furniture, the grill, the bathrooms. A few minor repairs need to be done but nothing that would disrupt your stay. We enjoyed the hot tub most nights. My only suggestion would be a bigger and better placed TV. I realize that TV is not on everyone's priority list, but it was a bummer to not see the entire screen when watching a family movie. The location is great - up in the hills but close to 116 and town. The front yard area is pretty and attracts lots of cool insects and birds. The staff was very responsive and nice when we had questions. Just remember in these times, the kitchen will not be stocked with anything, so, if you like to cook, you need to bring everything including oil, salt, pepper, herbs, spices, etc. The pots and pans and other kitchenware was in good shape.

Chris April 2021
Great Spot. Stay here, you won't regret it.

Parker April 2021
We really enjoyed our stay. The home and view are incredible - I would recommend it to anyone!

Marc March 2021
Spectacular view. Wonderful kitchen, dining, living space. Very comfortable stay.

Bhoomi March 2021
The place is as beautiful as described in the posting. Hot tub (and pool during season) has wonderful views. The location is ideal distance if you are looking to visit wineries in Guerneville, Healdsburg or Russian River. It is last just 4 mins drive to the downtown so makes it easy to get in quickly for Grocery or Takeout pickups.

Edward March 2021
Great place with great amenities

Kendra February 2021
This place is amazing! It exceeded expectations. Lovely house with everything you need to be comfortable with an absolutely amazing view. I highly recommend.

Rahul February 2021
It’s an okay place to stay.

Julie February 2021
The house has a wondeful view and we really enjoyed our stay. We appreciated the hospitality and great communication of the hosts. Thank you for hosting us!

River February 2021
Great place, great view... nice separate master for privacy! Plan on coming back soon....

Leslie December 2020
Such a beautiful place! Gorgeous views, beautiful home, and the fireplace and hot tub were perfect for the relaxation I was needing. I’ll be returning for sure!

Emily December 2020
This place is delightful. The house is warm and cozy (we were there in Dec) and is beautiful. The layout is great too. If you’re planning to go and cook a lot at the house, I’d recommend bringing your own pan. It was fantastic and we hope to book again!

Karla November 2020
We loved our coffee with the beautiful view! Thanks!

Vanessa November 2020
The perfect getaway! The view redwoods in the back are beyond beautiful. The house was comfy and cozy!

Dietrich November 2020
Great view.

Alexis November 2020
The house is a bit older than the pictures imply, but still pretty nice. I would recommend contacting the property management before your stay to ensure all amenities are up and running. We were informed on the day of our trip, literally in the car on the way to the house, that the hot tub was out of order. Also if you’re particular about cleanliness then this may not be the place for you. We did notice that the house was dusty and seemed like it hadn’t had any visitors in a while. Overall we had a decent trip but there we’re definitely things that could have been better. The property management was nice and quick to issue us a refund for the hot tub being out of order, which we appreciated.

Nellie October 2020
Lovely place with an amazing view.

Teresa October 2020
Fantastic home! We will definitely come back! Great setting, loved the pool, and very clean. Couldn’t be happier with our stay!

Ron September 2020
The Good: Great views, Clean, great customer service and comfortable beds. The Bad: Hot tub does not work, probably has needed a new pump for awhile as we got it to turn on once but the jets were very light. They were unable to repair (quick response though). The solar panels for the pool need to be fixed/maybe updated as we were there during warm weather but the pool was ice cold. They also seem to be located in a spot where they do not get enough sun. Could probably use a tv upgrade, as there is one very tiny tv and that area (built in shelving) had wires sticking out everywhere. Without the use of the hot tub or pool we watched tv in the evening. So kinda a bust for us as we enjoy using hot tubs and pools on our getaways, but the house itself is well maintained, clean and has awesome views. We would stay somewhere else next time as we love Guerneville!

Response from Russian River Getaways September 2020
Thanks for the review and feedback, Ron. We do apologize for not being able to get the hot tub fixed for you. It has been extremely challenging to get mechanical parts of all sorts since covid started. We will check out the solar system on the pool, but it's likely just that it was not warm enough outside to get the water warm enough for you. In any case, sounds as though another home would be a better match for you overall, and we hope you find it next time! -Rachel

Justin July 2020
Amazing views. Main living space is worked well for us. Open, inviting, and toddler friendly.

Vanessa March 2020
Beautiful place! Gorgeous views - we can’t wait to come back!

David March 2020
The location was amazing! The house was very nice, and we had no issues with checking in, using the hot tub, or anything else.

Max February 2020
It’s all about the stunning view of the Russian River and the lush canopies on its banks. Stunning view from up on Summit.

Natalia February 2020
Gorgeous home with incredible views. A perfect place to wind down after spending the day wine tasting or tubing down the Russian River.

Liz January 2020
The setting and architecture of this house are fantastic. The space is perfect for a group get together. We did have some issues with the property (a broken window, a broken bed, an unlit outdoor stairway to get to third bedroom, a finicky fireplace remote) but the host was responsive when I commented on these issue and they did credit us for the inconveniences. If they fixed all of those problems, the house would be great. Some new linens would help, too- they just were very luxurious. But the space and the view were an absolute pleasure and we had a lovely time lounging about.

Anthony December 2019
Wonderful place with fantastic view. Note the downstairs bedroom is accessible from the outside deck only. And the tankless hot water heater is not consistent and would not work on occasion.

Response from Russian River Getaways December 2019
We are so glad you were able to enjoy Soleil over the holidays, Anthony. We appreciate your feedback and review, and are happy to report that the hot water heater appears to be working just fine now. -Rachel

Robbie October 2019
Great location, beautiful home. We had a great time in wine country

Dan October 2019
Had a lovely time here! We came as a group of 5 friends. The house was really nice, absolutely no issues. Great location - very quick and easy drive down to town. They don't recommend arriving at night, but we did due to a late start to our trip, and it actually wasn't terribly difficult to find the place. Definitely recommend.

Lynda October 2019
Beautiful view!! The house needs maintenance. The septic has problems that you can’t even be out back without it smelling horribly. The fridge leaks, there’s a broken window in the kitchen. On the plus side, the hot tub was nice and the place was very clean!

Gregory September 2019
The 3 things I was most looking forward to while staying here were....view, peace and quiet, and swimming pool....I was very happy with all 3 and overall had an enjoyable stay. There were some minor inconveniences such as little to no outside lighting on the patio, a badly cracked kitchen window, and a mattress in the lower level master bedroom that has seen better days. An earlier post complained about the refrigerator and I too had a similar problem with the door not staying closed. The upper level gets very warm during the day since there are not shades. The lower level stays nice and cool. Overall I would stay here again.

Meghan September 2019
This house is fantastic! And the view is breathtaking! We were so pleased with how clean this house was. The staff at River Getaway’s were so helpful and kind. I highly recommend this house and Guerenville!

Michael September 2019
It has a beautiful view, the house is comfortable but is not as advertised. If you have pets beware there is no fences in the backyard and there are snakes in the front garden. There is an issue with the odor of the sceptic tank. The odor goes directly into the downstairs master bedroom as well as the barbecue and patio area. The jets in the jacuzzi didn’t work and the fridge didn’t seal and we lost food stored overnight.

Emma September 2019
We had the best weekend at this house. The backyard views cannot be summed up in words -- absolutely stunning. The living room, kitchen, deck and backyard are perfect for hanging out and relaxing. Feels very private. Stayed here with 4 other people for a girls weekend and it couldn't have been more perfect. Plenty of space, very comfortable. Would 100% stay here again. Great access to the town of Guerneville and the river.

John August 2019
Great space, great setting and view, and great location for visiting Sonoma wineries

Melissa August 2019
Amazing view! Watched the fog roll in every night. Only complaint is the pool deck could use some TLC. The edges are popping off.

Ann August 2019
Nice view!

Alex August 2019
This was a really great place to stay! Our family had an amazing time. The pool and hot tub are great amenities and the view is stunning. Perfect place for those needing three rooms. Town was a short drive away (tons of parking) and it had enough to do for a family looking to eat out. We used the BBQ mostly, and got our stuff from the Safeway only a few minutes drive away. The only important details to know is that there is no AC, so for a hot weekend staying inside is not ideal (we were at the pool or by the river most of the time). The pool itself is great but the wood trimming is getting a bit old. As to the steep hill - I wouldn't worry about it. It is easy to drive up. You may not want to walk up it though. All in all, I would say that it a beautiful Airbnb, with all the right amenities!

Joe August 2019
We enjoyed our stay here. The solar heated pool with a great view was really nice!

Barb August 2019
From the peaceful garden entry to the spectacular Russian River view to the comfortable living space this was the perfect home!! Great location, easy to get to all our favorite spots!

Heather July 2019
Nice Family Friendly Place.

Joanna July 2019
The Soleil house was great for our family. The house was very clean and had a beautiful view.

Becky July 2019
The house was incredible. The layout was perfect and the views were awesome! Beds were comfortable. We didn’t want to leave!

Lisa July 2019
This is a beautiful, beautiful spot to recharge! Feels like you’re out in the woods, but town is just a couple minutes away! Beautiful view!

Samantha June 2019
This is a beautiful property to stay at and it’s super close to Russian River. We could see the river from the deck. My husband and I enjoyed the pool and hot tub. There is no AC but they do have a couple of fans. You have to drive up a steep hill to get to the property but it’s not too bad. We would definitely recommend this place to others who want to stay near Russian River.

Conor June 2019
Great home with amazing views for a friends/family weekend getaway. Overall a great value. All agreed we’d return for another stay.

Maggie May 2019
The place was just as expected, and great for a small group to enjoy a relaxing getaway with stunning views!

Amanda April 2019
We absolutely loved it. Everything about the home was amazing and we had a really great time.

Cristin Raquel April 2019
A delightful and refreshing house that meets all needs

Meghna April 2019
Great location and beautiful house. Very comfortable. We would definitely come back.

Holly April 2019
I had a wonderful stay at the house with my girlfriends for a getaway weekend. Great view & hot tub, easy location. We cooked a great dinner in the kitchen, sat around the gas fireplace, and decompressed. The other reviewers are right - the road is really steep - but we didn't have any problems and all of the instructions were great. Thanks for an awesome weekend!

Mary March 2019
Not the best location but wish we could have made it

Natalia February 2019
Beautiful home with amazing views.

Pooja January 2019
Loved our stay.. the views were out of the world .

Lindsay January 2019
Our stay here was wonderful! The house is an oasis and we spent the weekend staying in and relaxing. The view is epic and the common area great for gathering. The separate downstairs suite provided some private separation which was nice as one of the families had a kid. We did need to contact the property management during our stay (a storm has blown out there pilot on the hot water) and they responded politely and promptly. Would definitely stay here again, and hoping to soon!

Garth January 2019
Great location and spectacular views. Many birds to be watched.

Alison December 2018
This house is in a fun location in the redwoods. We were able to drive to many attractions such as wineries, the coast, and restaurants very easily. The views from the windows and deck are amazing. Each morning there was a neat fog over the Russian River. The beds were very comfortable and the house was quiet, so we got a great nights sleep. It would be especially fun to visit during the warmer months to utilize the deck and pool.

Mae Ling Chu December 2018
Amazing accomodation in the Russian River with spectacular views. All amenities were thought of and the checkin/check out process was a breeze. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting the area.

Xiaohan December 2018
Everything is just perfect, we loved it every much. It's definitely a good place for friends and family to spend a weekend. We might come back next year!

Benjamin December 2018
Pretty amazing views, great sleeping arrangements and hot tub was the best

Krista December 2018
Beautiful and homely with amazing views. I had mobility issues and so this was a wonderful choice as we hardly left the home and yet could enjoy amazing views right from the living room! There are 2 bedrooms on the same level as the kitchen so I could get around easily. Lovely fire in the living room. The hottub was on and ready which was wonderful, especially with the superb views. Loved the Bose system in the living area and the kitchen is well-stocked. We brought 2 pups and they had a great time running up and down the deck. I would arrive in the daylight as the road is extremely steep but then that's why the views are so wonderful. Thank you for a lovely stay and an excellent 50th birthday for my husband.

Sheila November 2018
The views are priceless and the house was gorgeous - would definitely come back! Made my birthday extra special!

Alex October 2018
Great house with excellent views. Pool and hot tub make it the perfect getaway spot.

Tiffany October 2018
The house is amazing. Perfect get a way!

Catherine September 2018
Perfect stay! The home is not only beautiful, but spotlessly clean. We’ll definitely be back.

Roy September 2018
Really nice house - the views are fantastic; the neighborhood is quiet and the house feels private; the pool and hot tub were well maintained and enjoyable; and the location is 5 minutes by car from Guerneville (just know that it's quite a steep drive up!). We would definitely return.

Jeff September 2018
Amazing views and great pool! Really central to the town and is a great weekend break listing!

Blair August 2018
Stellar views and wonderfully peaceful in the trees. House is well equipped and pool and hot tub were a great way to relax. Hill to the house is pretty steep, so be mindful if carrying bikes, kayaks, etc. Would highly recommend this place. A+ for a Russian River getaway!

Klaudia August 2018
Amazing views, we loved the big windows and the open concept living area! The hot tub was a hit! The space was clean and spacious. Wonderful location.

Matthew August 2018
Gorgeous location and amazing property. No complaints aside from a little expensive. Would stay again and definitely would recommend to friends and family

Kristen August 2018
Nice house, gorgeous view. The hot tub was really nice, as was the pool. Really nice kitchen with everything you could need. Beds are quite hard but linens are nice. Quiet neighborhood, steep drive up a hill to get to this beautiful home.

Albert August 2018
This home was a spectacular getaway for our family vacation. In the warmth of mid-summer, the pool was a daily joy. You’re not going to get a workout to train for a triathlon, but perfect for splashing around in the sun. The hot tub was a welcome post-pool soak! On the lower, pool level, there were four lounge chairs in the sun, and two high-backed chairs under the deck in the shade. Perfect for sunbathing and reading, respectively. The focus of the upstairs space is the wall of glass with majestic views of the Russian River and the California Coastal Range. There is no air conditioning, but there are three sliding glass doors with scrolling mesh screens which we kept open for most of the day. It does get a bit warm toward the late afternoon, but that is what the pool is for! The kitchen is well appointed with an oven — we baked! — and a 6 burner range. There’s also a large propane gas grill on the attached full length deck. The dining table was perfect for our family meals and evening board games! The living room was comfy for lounging, reading, internet and TV. There is cable service (NBC Sports Bay Area for Giants and Warriors games) and Wi-Fi. The main bathroom was spacious and up to date. The master suite is on the lower level with its own bathroom (shower only). Washer and dryer was also in the master suite. The suite can only be reached via two outdoor stairways on either side of the house. In the Summer, that wasn’t an issue for us. We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 evenings and hope to return another Summer!

The house is great, the view is insane - the pool was fun. We had the best time, would def go back!

Cam July 2018
Great views from the deck and pool. Quite high up off the valley floor, so it's very quiet and peaceful. Everything was as advertised, would definitely stay there again if we're in the area.

Rafael June 2018
This place has a good view and the pool is great on a hot day (it was in the 90's when we were there on a Friday and Saturday). Most places don't have AC in the area but just note that it gets really hot here without it (thankfully there were 2 fans in each closet). The only bummer is that the stove was broken when we got there - they sent a repair guy while we were there relaxing and he 'fixed it' - only for us to have 2 mini fireball incidents when we lit the stove the other two times in the weekend. So I give this place 5 stars overall but with an asterisk for the frankly unsafe stove which they will probably and hopefully actually fix ahead of the next guest!

Response from Russian River Getaways June 2018
Thanks for the review, Rafael! The stove repair guy fixed a minor issue, but another part failed unexpectedly right after that, which caused the problem you experienced, and the stovetop has to be replaced (which it will be this week). We appreciate your understanding. -Rachel

Kary June 2018
Great place.

Michael June 2018
If your staying from now until summer be prepared. No A/C we lucked out and had great weather. But if it was 10-15 degrees hotter it would have been uncomfortable. The pool and jacuzzi needs to be cleaned. I did not have my family swim in pool or jacuzzi.

Response from Russian River Getaways June 2018
Thanks for the review and feedback, Michael. Please know that you can always call us or the spa company (contact info on fridge and in house binder) for help with any concerns about the spa or pool. Also, if you are staying in this area again, very few homes have air conditioning, but it is fortunately rarely hot enough to need it! -Rachel

Dorothée June 2018
The house is very nice and clean. It is in a secluded and quiet area with beautiful views. We had a great time.

Stephen May 2018
The property and layout of the home is incredible. The pool and hot tub are wonderful. Kitchen and outdoor wraparound porch made for wonderful breakfasts and dinners that could easily move in and outside. The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. Most of all, the views and overall vibe of the town (just down the street) were wonderful. Safeway, liquor store, wineries are all <10min drive and nature is... well, steps in any direction.

Claire May 2018
Highly recommend Soliel!! It is clean, comfortable, well equipped and the views are breath taking. The pool is lovely with the same wonderful view and fairly private. Very close to downtown Guerneville and a fun steep hill to drive up and down. We will be back.

Lisa April 2018
This house is AMAZING! The views are gorgeous, common spaces are beautiful, bright. There's a big deck and outdoor tables and chairs to enjoy the view and sunshine. The downstairs bedroom offers a separate space for some additional privacy. There's a jacuzzi and a pool. Everything was better than expected!! I feel like the images don't even do the house justice. Would 100% return.

Brita April 2018
WOW! This was one of the best experiences I've had lately. Such a wonderful property, incredibly responsive hosts and you can bring your doggies! We had such a great time just hanging out at the house and taking in the amazing view, while dipping our feet in the pool. I would absolutely book again.

Kate April 2018
Amazing views, beautiful house. 5 min drive to Downtown Guerneville. Great place for our family weekend away!

Nick April 2018
Just a wonderful vacation property all around. The gardens are lovely, replete with lemon trees and flowers of various kinds. The icy pool makes a wonderful contrast with the hot tub - and no doubt will be perfect in warm summer weather. There's a basic but good Weber gas grill and a well laid-out kitchen with gas range in a large island for prepping family and friends' meals. The view wall to the back deck frames a stunning view over Russian River and the River Lane / Lucky Bend area, and across to the north side a redwood forested valley. Super-relaxing to kick back with a wine and some grilled food. We'll be back!

Response from Russian River Getaways April 2018
Thanks for the review and feedback, Nick - both are much appreciated. We're very glad your stay at Soleil was a good one and hope you'll be back soon! Although it sounds as though you enjoyed it anyway, the pool is not actually in service Oct-May, as the solar heat is turned off for the winter, and you pay a discounted rate in those months. -Rachel

George March 2018
This location had thee best views! It was very private and pleasant. Would definitely come back to this location!

Hannah February 2018
Beautiful home with an incredible view!

Lindsey February 2018
This place is absolutely as advertised! Super clean, comfortable, modern, and stylish. Kitchen was outfitted with everything you need and gas grill was working and fun to use. Amazing sunrise views and great location to do hikes, wine tours, and beach. Car must be able to get up a big hill, but once you are at the top you will be thankful for the beautiful gardens and secluded natural feel. Absolutely recommend it and will be going back!

Marc January 2018
Beautiful views and very quiet neighborhood close to Main Street. I wish they would have stopped by to inspect the house prior to our arrival as the bathroom on the main floor was covered in live and dead ants and the kitchen had spiderwebs. Would definitely book again.

Response from Russian River Getaways January 2018
Thanks for the review and feedback, Marc. We're glad you enjoyed Soleil and hope the transient wildlife was not too big an issue. We clear them out constantly, but they can set up again quickly. You are also always welcome to call us, and we will take care of any unwanted visitors for you. -Rachel

Eoin January 2018
Great place to stay for a weekend getaway

Patti January 2018
Great location with beautiful views over the Russian River. The large, bright kitchen is well equipped. Perfect house for groups. Nice location for exploring Sonoma county and the coast.

Ryan December 2017
Great Location phenomenal food place right down the block. Great view

Jason December 2017
Great place to stay with a beautiful view

Rene November 2017
Description is accurate. Awesome scenic views of pine trees and Russian river. Great for groups and families. Had 2 mishaps. Owner has not yet replied.

Response from Russian River Getaways November 2017
Thank you for the review and feedback, Rene, and we're very glad you enjoyed your stay at Soleil! We always respond to messages from guests, but we received no voicemails from you, so I'm not sure what happened there, and we found nothing major amiss after your departure. We'd welcome a message or call if you'd like to share your experience.

Renee September 2017
The view is like none other. We saw a few beautiful sunsets and found there was enough room on the upper deck for four of us to have a session of yoga as the sun was rising . We enjoyed the spacious kitchen and large dining table. We found there was plenty of space in the house to enjoy each other and to find privacy.

David September 2017
This cottage is in a truly beautiful location with gorgeous views, a short (5min) drive to the Main Street. The house was large (for a family), comfortable and clean. We were a bit surprised to find the outdoor areas a bit run down (though functioning, for the most part) and we missed having a comfortable upstairs patio area in the evenings to enjoy the setting sun (though the pool beds were great). Also wished there we some amenities like pool towels, shower accessories, some dvds- small items to make this place feel more homey. This is probably in the property details but good to note that the pool is 3'8" deep only and there is no outside activity allowed after 10pm.

Rae Marie May 2017
This place was amazing!

Leona April 2017
This place the definition of comfort and rejuvenation!

Thomas April 2017
We had a wonderful stay at Soleil. Highly recommended, the space is fabulous and I'd go back in a heartbeat!

George March 2017
We had a great stay at Soleil. The house was as described and check in was very easy with the key code lock. The views were amazing and the kitchen was well stocked for cooking. Also enjoyed the hot tub as it cooled down in the evening.

Anjanette November 2016
The home was absolutely stunning in its location - above the trees on the top of a hill overlooking the Russian River - and in its amenities. Everything was clean, beautifully decorated, and cozy. Though we didn't really use the pool (too cold), the hot tub was so great - we used it every day, twice a day in fact. Just what we needed for our time away before the holiday. It would be helpful to know that this property has 2 bedroom and 1 bath upstairs which is not connected internally to the bedroom downstairs (it's almost like a standalone suite without a kitchen). The neighborhood is also very quiet so even normal voices carry - there are signs all over to observe quiet hours. So if you are looking for a rowdy getaway that allows you to party in to the night, even though the amenities look like this might be the place, I would choose another.

Raymond November 2016
The host/company is quick to respond and are very helpful. The place is an amazing place to stay!

Patty October 2016
River Getaways was very responsive, courteous, professional, and friendly in every interaction I had with their staff. The house was beautiful, exactly as described, and was the perfect setting for our weekend getaway with friends and pups. I would definitely stay again.

Michael October 2016
If you're looking for a secluded getaway with breathtaking views in morning and sunset, then this is your place. One of the best locations we've stayed at for wine country travel in terms of views. The amenities allow for a rustic, outdoor experience and home cooking. Also great location for Russian River wine tastings, redwood trees and the coast. The management company is very prompt with responses and very communicative. We had some issues with the fireplace and they got a technician to come fix it while we were tasting wines. The only thing to consider is the steep drive to get to the house. Makes it tough to walk or run but that's pretty minor when you consider the experience that elevation provides in terms of views. I'd give it a 9.5/10 in terms of overall experience.

Ej August 2016
This was our second time staying at the house this summer and we had a fantastic time just like the first time! We couldn't get enough of the incredible views and pool the first time so decided to come back. The views are incredible and the house is very comfortable with a great open floor plan which was perfect for our family. River Getaways is an excellent host. We forgot a charger last time and they contacted us and mailed it right away. We can't wait to come back again!

Ej June 2016
My husband and our two kids had a fantastic time! The views are quite spectacular and the pictures do not do it justice. It was quiet and relaxing at the house and we had lots of fun enjoying the pool and hot tub. We come to Guerneville often and got married there and the house is in an excellent location. Easy and quick drive into town. Booking was super quick and easy too. We are definitely renting the house again!

Charity June 2016
Highly recommend.

Emily May 2016
We had a wonderful weekend at this amazing house. Thank you for a memorable time!

Rebecca April 2016
Beautiful home, great communication and overall seamless rental process. We really enjoyed our stay. Thank you!!

Erica January 2016
The description was very accurate and instructions were clear and concise. Thank you for mentioning how parking is tight so we could accommodate two cars. It was a beautiful home with an amazing view.

Bryan November 2015
Comfortable home with a beautiful view. Would love to come back soon.

Angela November 2015
The listing description was pretty accurate. It was a little hard to find especially at night but good thing they had their own set of directions they sent. The app that they encourage you to download is very useful. The place was really cozy. Instructions were clear cut. It was a great getaway for me and my friends for my birthday.

Sophie March 2021
Views are amazing! Perfect setup for a weekend getaway.

Holly September 2019
The house is great other than we visited on a particularly warm week and there is nothing in place to help keep you cool. There is no air-con and we found 1 very weak fan in a cupboard which didn't really do anything. The only other negative was the lack of shade on the terrace and by the pool. It's too hot to sit out there so we had to head to the beach to cool off. The place was clean and nice in every other way. But they definitely need to supply fans and parasols as it was like a sauna inside and out! I would definitely return (when the temp has dropped).

Henrietta February 2019
Stunning views and great location, short drives to many vineyards! The place was wonderful with a family.

Mubnii February 2019
Beautiful location, the view is unbeatable. Can see the river from the balcony! A few amenities missing, and the TV is very small, but otherwise a great stay.

"everything you need for a fabulous time!"

5 of 5

I rented Soleil for my 30th birthday celebration. The pictures of this home cannot do it justice. It has the perfect common area for entertaining, cooking and playing games, and is very open. The beds are comfortable and it is in a serene neighborhood. And the view! we couldn't get enough of having wine on the upstairs deck and staring into the trees. Everything was spotlessly clean. It is a short drive (3-5 minutes) to downtown Guerneville and a nice beach on the river. Also, take advantage of the abundant meyer lemon tree on the property! We used slices on our barbequed salmon. The pool and hot tub make this a place that you won't even need to leave. Great for an grown-up getaway or for families, too. Only caveat? bring your own cheese grater!

Manager Response:

I'm so glad you had such a great time at Soleil and appreciate the great review. We'll let the owner know about the cheese grater. I hope you'll come back and stay with us again. -Rachel, Russian River Getaways

"Just as lovely for our second visit!"

My friends and I stayed in Soleil this past weekend and had such a lovely time. It's everything you'd want for a relaxing Russian River getaway -- peace, quiet, clean home, nice appliances, etc. We loved it and will be back!

Manager Response:

Soleil is awesome, and we're so glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for the good review, and please do come back soon. -Rachel

"Awesome Home."

4 of 5

I would have easily given this home 5 stars but it was advertised as having a solar heated pool but we found out the solar had not worked since it was fired up. Disappointed that the water was so cold.Also the refrigerator was not turned on early enough and when we loaded our food it was warm and stayed that way for 24 hours. We had to put our perishables in a cooler with ice.On the positive this was a well kept home with lots of little touches that made it so comfy. The view was magnificent. I would rent again knowing in advance that I would not be swimming.

Manager Response:

The weather probably was not warm enough to warm the pool to where you wanted it. That's the thing with solar. With the pool's opening in May, we'll check it out to make sure it's all okay. We don't turn appliances off in between reservations, so the refrigerator should have been cold. Again, we'll check it out. Please next time call us so that we can get things working right while you're in the house. We're glad you enjoyed the house, and hope you'll come back. -Rachel

"Breathtaking views!"

5 of 5

Russian River Getaways just always delivers - this house is gorgeous. The boys headed off and played golf while the girls spent most afternoons cooling in the pool as we were there during a heatwave. Soleil is modern and spanking clean with plenty of room to spread out. My only gripe is that there were no umbrella and loungers for around the pool (apart from those plastic venus-fly-trap things from the 70s). Also would have loved some loungers and umbrella on the deck upstairs where I spent evenings with a glass of vino watching the eagles hunt in the trees down below us - just spectacular.

Manager Response:

Soleil is a great home with a truly amazing view, and I'm so glad you enjoyed it so much. Thanks for sharing your joy. We'll pass the request for loungers and umbrella on to the owners. Come back again soon for more eagles! -Rachel, Russian River Getaways

"The House in the Heavens"

5 of 5

We loved the house! But, there were a few things that would have been good to know prior to arriving. As you go up Summit Drive the house is not visible from the road. All you can see is a fence with the house number on it. The pool is 4 foot deep throughout (which was perfect for my son). There is not a staircase inside the house. To access the downstairs room you must use the outside stairs. This makes it nice if you are sharing the home with another couple but not so great for a family with smaller children. Both of the upstairs rooms have queen beds; the king bed is in the downstairs room. The home does not have air conditioning but there is usually a nice breeze to cool off the upstairs. None of these are negatives, but would have been good to know at the time of booking. The home was clean, well equipped and in wonderful condition. The view is amazing! When we woke up and looked out the fog was below us...hence us naming it The House in the Heavens. The have a lovely garden complete with two garter snakes. We never saw them but the book in the house tells you they are there for insect control. If you are bringing a dog keep in mind that there is no grassy area and there is a drop off on the far side of the pool. We brought expens and gated off the access to the drop off area.

"Will definitely go back"

5 of 5

I spent 3 nights here with some girlfriends and we had a great time. The view is amazing. We did a lot of cooking and were so pleased with the kitchen set-up. We all noted how clean and new everything looked, and how comfy the beds were. We had a great time both indoors and outdoors. The only thing we would have changed is that the downstairs bedroom has a separate entrance (i.e. it is not internally connected to the upstairs, so you have to go outside and up the deck stairs to get upstairs), but that wasn't even a big deal. We'll definitely be back next summer.

"Lovely landscaping."

4 of 5

Good views of the valley. The house seems was recently renovated. But spartan furnishings and bedding is much desired. Don't expect any luxury out this house beside the views. We have forgot our set pillow and paid for it with neck pain next day. The extra propane tank for BBQ grill (which was very clean) was great. The house has most of what you might need but just bear bones. No Dvd's.The water in the pool was still cold in late May but that what you should expect. Very steep climb to the house on a very narrow road. Make sure your car can handle it without spinning down the hill.The only downside is very nasty neighbor who leaves there permanently and will call the cops on you if he feels you are disturbing him even it's only 9 pm.

Manager Response:

Each of our homes have their own flavor and charm. Some have many nick nacks scattered around and some are like Soleil, open and airy. It's important to look closely at the photographs we have of each home so that you can stay in one more suited to your likes. The drive up to the home is quite steep but the views when you get there more than make up for it!
We have spoken to the neighbor regarding the Sonoma County noise ordinance and we are very sorry if he bothered you. We do have an emergency line that you needed to call so that we could have assisted you in this situation.

"Remote hilltop getaway with amazing views"

5 of 5

House was well equipped and nicely laid out, and just close enough to town that it feels convenient even though once you're there, you're out in the woods. The views are nothing short of incredible. It's a roller coaster ride getting up the hill, and the turnoff can be tough to catch at night, but easy once you've done it once. Very comfortable for four of us, would have been just fine with the full six. My only pet peeve is the lighting in the front walkway - there's none, which makes returning home a t night a little dicey.

Manager Response:

We'll pass your concern about the lighting on to the owner. Thanks for the feedback. -Rachel, General Manager

"Wonderful!!"

5 of 5

Soleil was a wonderful place to stay for our mini-break from the city. The house is nice, new and clean. The pictures do a good job representing what it looks like. We cooked in both nights and enjoyed the open floor plan. The view is amazing from the deck and the pool - a nice treat at night with a glass of wine or in the morning for breakfast. It felt quiet and secluded and really allowed us to relax.

-Mary on 08/30/2012

 

"Beyond all expectations."

5 of 5

If you are considering this rental, stop right now and go no further. What an amazing discovery we had in Soleil. Stunning views, spacious, open plan upper floor,comfortable beds, and all the amenities we needed. The hot tub, pool, fabulous deck, and wonderful gardens were just icing on the cake. Located minutes from Guerneville and armstrong State Forest (redwoods), and a short drive to either the fantastic Sonoma wineries or the stunning parklands of the Sonoma coast. Great farmers' market on fridays in nearby Occidental, along with a culinary gem of a bistro, so the location really is ideal: a peaceful getaway with access to all you would want. Russian River Getaways was perfect to deal with. Soleil was, hands down, the best vacation rental we have ever had the pleasure to stay in. The only thing to know in advance is that the neighborhood is perched on a steep grade road (17% or 450 feet climb over a half mile), so make sure your car is in low gear when arriving! It is a bit disconcerting the first time!5 stars does not do this rental justice--add a "+" from us...

"What a view!"

5 of 5

This was the fourth time we have rented from Rrgetaways, but the first time we have stayed in Soleil, what a great house! Soleil was a very nicley updated and modern house, I'm a bit of a nut when it comes to clean rental homes, and this one was clean. The beds and bedding made me never want to get up in the morning. The upper floor is very bright and open with a great kitchen. We could have sat next to the pool and looked over the edge at the view forever. We will be back next year to Soleil house! I would like to say that the road going up to the house is not for the weak of heart, or a weak transmission! Be sure to get the directions to go up the back way, and it becomes more scary after dark when the deer come out to play on the road! Oh, and did I mention that the road is a two way street that is not much wider than a bike path in sections? But that being said, it was still that wonderful, we just didn't leave the house much!

"Fantastic!"

5 of 5

Soleil is a lovely home - my family (6 adults) thoroughly enjoyed our stay. All bedrooms were spacious, as were the main living quarters. The best part of the house is the deck - from the deck, there are sweeping views. The house is located at the very top of a steep climb, which makes the view spectacular. We relaxed by the pool, and enjoyed the peace and quiet and the many hummingbirds who came for a visit. The pool isn't huge, but is more than adequate, and again, affords a wonderful view of the forest and river. I would definitely stay at Soleil again - highly recommended.

Manager Response:

This is a great house, and I'm so glad you enjoyed it. Please come back and visit again. -Rachel, general manager

"Wonderful home - sucky neighbors"

3 of 5

We really enjoyed the home and the services of Russian River Getaways, but the neighbor put a big damper on our weekend by complaining about every little noise we made... even at 11:00am...We also had a nasty note tacked on our gate, warning us to be quiet or the police would be called and we would be kicked out.

Manager Response:

We're glad these guests enjoyed the house so much, and we're very sorry that the neighbor was difficult. We've spoken with him and his landlady, and have resolved this problem. That said, there is a County Ordinance for vacation rentals requiring quiet hours 10pm-9am, so we do ask guests to keep their voices quiet and hot tub jets on low after 10pm. -rkl

"Nature Lovers Paradise"

5 of 5

This house was amazing! I have rented from RR Getaways in the past by far this is the best house ever. The house is beautifully located in the redwoods with magnificent views. The bedrooms were nicely decorated and beds were extremely comfortable, especially the master bedorom with its own bath. The house is adequately equipped with appropriate kitchen utensils, just need to snoop around a bit to find them. One thing that was lacking were pot holders for anything coming out of the oven. My partner and I rented this house with 3 other adults. The living room area is a bit tight for 5 adults, but we managed to make do while catching up on the worldly news. I would highly recommend this house for families with older children or a group of friends traveling together. The upper deck does have glass panels which did not appear to be child friendly - also stairs going down to the pool area and hot tub. The pool looked inviting but we did not have it heated. The hot tub was fun - can comfortably fit 4 adults...just cleanliness was a concern. I informed RR Getaways and I am sure that has been addressed by now. As far as the appliances - everything is practically brand new and green! I love that since I work for a company at an Ivy League University that bases its vision on sustainability! If you looking for a great getaway that has spectacular views, this is the place to be! Can't wait to rent again!
