Recent Northern California vacation rental reviews

House was clean and fresh. Well stocked kitchen (relatively) and nice clean furniture. Cul de sac had 2 of 3 houses occupied with the middle house vacant (nice) but there's plenty of space between houses for a dog. Living space is upstairs so be prepared for that. Nice house nicely located to dog park and adjacent trails (best forest walk in SR).

It was clean and had a well stocked kitchen. It is very close to the village and ski facilities. It has heated floors which was great! They do need to give you more linens for the amount of people you have so make sure to request that. They also need directions given for the TV system. It had wonderful Wifi which was a big bonus. Generally very happy with the property.

We enjoyed our stay very much. The house had everything we needed. Very clean and decorated so cute. The house was located at end of street and great view of canal and marina. Enclosed patio was great to keep our dog safe. Although house was small, there was an awesome huge walk-in closet to store our belongings. Perfect for the two of us and our dog. We did not feel crowded at all. We will definitely be back.
