The home is cute with a beautiful vinyard view and has everything needed for your stay. Easy to find and not too far from Guerneville.
Joe D. Nov 2022
We loved this place, perfect for two people. Great location and really well-equipped.
Loreal L. Nov 2022
This place was so cute and romantic, perfect for two. We couldn’t get enough of the views and the cut little town. We were thankful for the strong heat, because it did get chilly, especially the bathroom. Speaking of the bathroom, the shower has more pressure than I’ve ever experienced, but sadly it gets cold quick so we learned to stagger our showers. I’m so happy that we booked this just a few days out when we read bad Wifi reviews about another place we had booked! This cottage has a strong signal that let us get another vacation day in whole gazing at the vineyards. We would definitely go back!

Great little cottage. Everything you need for that weekend getaway.
Lisa H. Sep 2022
Loved the private vineyard view on the back patio. Very quiet tiny studio -cottage tucked back under the redwoods!

This is the perfect setting for a romantic weekend for two.
Donna W. Jul 2022
Perfectly appointed, this sweet little cottage has everything we needed for our three day stay. The front and back decks coordinate nicely with the sun, so there was always a comfortable spot to relax.
Jenn W. Jun 2022
We loved the place - it was cozy, quiet and had all we needed for a weekend in the Russian River Valley. The only drawback is that the shower is small but manageable.
Gerald M. May 2022
Place was clean and quiet, looked just like the photos. Close to everything. I would have no problem staying again. Thanks!

Loved our stay at this perfectly situated bungalow in Guerneville. Nicely outfitted and near terrific locations.
Sharon O. Mar 2022
Everything seemed to be as photographed/described and functional. The unit has a beautiful view over a vineyard! The documents in the unit indicate you may hear noise from the workers/vehicles on the vineyard, but that was minimal and not disruptive. The bed seemed small for a queen and wasn't terribly comfortable. There were variety of types of pillows for you to choose which one is comfortable for you. The porch was comfortable to sit on and read a book with a cup of tea. The water pressure in the shower was very low, which is great to conserve water, but I would have preferred a little more water pressure.

The unit really packs a punch considering it's so small. Multiple places to sit and eat (we loved the shelf by the window in the kitchen in the mornings).

We stayed for 3 nights. Getting there was straightforward with GPS, lock box was easy to locate and use to get the house keys. We arrived in the early evening to a very cold cottage. We turned on the heat, but it was very slow to get warm, so we left to have dinner and came back to a warm cottage. The heat was a bit difficult to manage during our stay, we found the unit to be excessively warm, even when the thermostat was set to 65. Not sure if there is a trick to that but it would be nice to have information on that for guests in the unit.

One other thing that was confusing was that there were 3 different documents in the unit that listed 3 different time ranges for night time quiet hours. Also I believe the online listing said there was parking for 2 cars, but documents in the unit said 1 car. The checkout instructions also said we should start a load of towels and dishes in the dishwasher, but there was no dishwasher or washer/dryer in the unit. I am not sure why instructions were not made accurate and consistent across all of the documents, but it would be helpful for guests to have clear expectations outlined.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would definitely consider returning for another stay.
Manager response:
Sharon, thank you for your feedback. We are happy to read you enjoyed your stay at our home. We will check the information regarding the quiet hours in the home and will remove any incorrect information. The check-out instructions are basic instructions that are in our pamphlets for each home. If the property doesn't have a washer/dryer or dishwasher we would not expect our guests to do this. We would love to host you again in the future!

So clean, so relaxing, so charming. The pictures don’t do it justice. The outdoor deck is like an extension of the inside. I had everything I needed and didn’t want to leave. I will be returning!
Jeffrey A. Feb 2022
An extraordinary setting for someone (like me!) who enjoys serenity and privacy. Very comfy!
Rafael G. Dec 2021
I hate to sounds so cliche, but this home is a true hidden gem!!! Ambience was on point. Great location, quiet, quaint, clean and so easy to check in and out. Great view of the vineyard behind the cottage. Highly recommend!
Stephan B. Nov 2021
This rental is guaranteed to increase your well-being. Quiet, beautiful view, great kitchen and bathroom, a good night’s sleep, and responsive host. You’ll even have access to Netflix, Prime Video, Hulu, HBOMax etc. if you're feeling like a movie. And of course you’re perfectly located to access all the Russian River and the Sonoma coast have to offer. After I stayed I felt totally rejuvenated.
Saurabh A. Jun 2021

Perfect for a romantic getaway.
Wendy B. Sep 2020
This was the absolute perfect little Hideaway. Felt very private but not too remote. Location location location as well. This was exactly what the doctor ordered. Perfectly decorated as well- super efficient and cozy- I felt like I was ‘home.’ Highly recommended!!
Rebecca P. Aug 2020
The view was gorgeous. The cottage was convenient and adorable. FYI there's no air conditioning which was fine for every day except the 88 F day, where it was a little warm.
christine d. Aug 2020
really cute place. nice and quiet atmosphere. spent most of the time on the balcony in the sunshine. propane grill worked nicely. really had everything we needed. shower is a tight squeeze, kept bumping my arm on the hot/cold knob.
would definitely recommend this place!
Bryony D. Feb 2020
We had a great two-night stay and were wowed by the cabin. The photos do not do it justice. It was immaculate and beautifully decorated with lots of nice touches you don't normally get in a holiday rental. The view of the vineyard is awesome and we enjoyed sitting on the deck reading in the afternoon sun. Thoroughly recommended.
Peter R. Feb 2020
Studio was comfortable and well equipped. It's set up for three with the dishes, two adults and a child would be my limit, although the couch isn't a sleeper. Kitchen was well appointed, provided all the utensils needed to prep and enjoy a meal. Bed was also comfortable. a short drive to town, the ocean and the vineyards. We'd choose this place again for our date weekend.
sacha s. Jan 2020
The place was clean and close to town with a lovely view of the vineyards. It was comfortable and the perfect size for a couple, nice a quite!
Antonio M. Nov 2019
Loved this place! Wish I could buy it and keep it too myself. Will have to settle for coming back next year.
Radu G. Nov 2019
The most amazing place i have ever rented , is so elegant , intimate and usefull. I couldn't make a better decision on where to stay in sonoma county .
Debbra D. Oct 2019
This studio is exactly as pictured. It was very clean. We only slept and showered, but it appeared to have all the necessary pots, pans, dishes and utensils for making a full meal. There are two patios. The back is small with a gorgeous view of the vineyard. The front has nice patio furniture and a BBQ grill. We did have some frustration with the TV, initially. It is ROKU based, and we were not familiar with how to get it turned on, We later found the instructions in the kitchen area along with the other guest information. (We are an older generation, and we are used to just turning on a TV. ). Not walking distance to town, but that was ok for us.
Julie M. Aug 2019
A cute home nestled in a quite neighbor with a view of the vineyards and close to the river.

All that you need in this little house overlooking a vineyard. We loved it and will be back!
Antonio B. Dec 2018
Great place to be In the country .everything was there that I needed .it was very affordable and worth it. Pretty small but it's just for one adult not family. My stay was great
Lucious G. Nov 2018
This was such a wonderful little cottage that thought it could and DID!! My partner and I spent 4 nights here at this quaint cottage with wonderful vineyards view and plenty of outdoor space. It’s the right amount of space for two people and had everything we needed. The staff was very attentive on any requests and we will definitely be back.
Jacqueline T. Nov 2018
This home is tucked away in a private community that encompasses the roaring Russian River nearby, with easy access to local shops and eateries, and a fantastic view of private wineries.
