Hillside Home near the Russian River

(4.6 Average)

Description

Above And Beyond is a lovely hillside home close to town and a short walk to the Russian River. With private shaded decks and a clean modern interior, as well as numerous amenities for guests to enjoy, this cozy spot is an excellent choice for couples or families coming to visit the Russian River and Sonoma Wine Country.

The interior has 3 bedrooms, each with a queen bed. The third bedroom has a television and DVD player. The kitchen is modern and fully stocked. There is a wood-burning fireplace in the living room and the dining area seats 6.

The exterior is all hillside, with a two-level deck. The top level has a BBQ, outdoor dining area and large 6-person spa. The lower level has additional outdoor seating. Just across the street from the bottom of the stairs, there is a neighborhood path that leads two blocks to a dog friendly neighborhood beach on the Russian River.

Know Before You Book:

Maximum Occupancy and Quiet Hours: The maximum occupancy at Above and Beyond is 6. Quiet hours are from 10:00 p.m. until 7:00 a.m. Outdoor amplified sound is prohibited at any time.

Parking: On-site parking is permitted for a maximum of 2 small vehicles. Parking is best for 1 vehicle. RVs, trailers and campers are prohibited, per the Sonoma County Vacation Rental Ordinance. Parking spaces are not deep enough for large trucks or SUVs.

Bed Sizes: First Bedroom: Queen Bed, Second Bedroom: Queen Bed, Third Bedroom: Queen Bed

A/C: The house does not have air conditioning. Being near the coast, the night time temps drop and just opening some windows is usually enough to cool the house.

Stairs: There are 54 stairs from the parking area to the front door. On the plus side, the house is up on a hill and sits higher than its neighbors, giving the decks and interior a good degree of privacy.

Work from HERE: An alcove with a sit/stand desk, monitor, and acoustic foam and sound panel make this spot ideal for getting work done in quiet with out being disturbed by or bothering the rest of the guests in the house.
Advertised Wifi Speed: Xfinity Residential

Location: Above And Beyond is a two block walk from the Russian River and a mile walk from downtown Guerneville.

This was the perfect place for a long weekend getaway in the craziness of COVID and the election. The setting was very peaceful, being set up the hill and back from the street. It was an easy walk (or drive) into town to make a run to Safeway or to enjoy the restaurants etc on Main St. Very clean, which is of course even more important these days. The Roku TV on the moveable stand was nice so that we could stream the news and Netflix. Kitchen appliances and utensils etc were plentiful and in good shape. The toaster seems to be on its last legs. The furniture in the living area was functional, but not the most comfortable (may want to have cushions that fit a bit better to the frame). We were disappointed that the hot tub was not working during our stay, but appreciated the warning ahead of time and the offer for a discount on our nightly rate. However, overall, this was a great stay and we would look into staying at this property again the next time we need a quick getaway from the city.

Spent a long weekend up here with my gf and her dog and we had a blast. This home has a beautiful view, a serene ambience, and was everything that we'd hoped for with a long weekend spent relaxing, grilling, chilling in the hot tub, swimming and paddling in the river, and grabbing some of the local food. Note also that the home has some additional amenities not pictured. There's a great sound system that you can connect to via bluetooth to play music with your dinner (or while you're cooking), and there were a lot of really great DVDs there to choose from in case you wanted to watch a movie (ranging from classics like Rear Window to Zoolander, lol). Finally, you cannot beat being a five-minute walk away from the river and having this level of privacy. We took the dog to the river everyday and didn't have to compete for space. Highly recommend this home!

The treetops view through the picture window was a great feature! The kitchen is very well supplied with utensils and gadgets. It's a good workout walking the steps. Parking is challenging for larger vehicles.

It’s not to far from the Bay Area, but you feel like you are many miles away. A quiet place to relax with the family in a cozy space, warm atmosphere and close to river and parks. Enjoyed the hot tub, beautiful surrounding trees and fire place.

A really nice retreat perched on a hillside. We visited in late autumn. The skylights brighten up the interior that the trees and hill would otherwise shade. The hot tub and fireplace kept us cozy. The kitchen is well equipped, so it's easy to prepare your own meals if you want to save money or take a break from restaurant fare.

My friends and I were looking for a reunion spot together to catch up—hike, chat and relax. This gem of a spot was just perfect. Nestled in the trees with a hot tub beautifully placed under the stars, we had a relaxing and fun weekend! All was clean and well laid out—only felt strange that when paying a cleaning fee, we had to wash all dishes and empty the dishwasher which delayed our departure. But that’s a small inconvenience for a charming, quaint and lovely spot!

Thanksgiving w our California-based family. The home has comfy beds for 3 pairs of adults, good bathrooms and great kitchen for a bunch of hands cooking together. The hot tub was a bonus, as were the surrounding redwoods, convenience to the river for fishing, and the surrounding area in general. We hope to come back.

This house is nicely located a two-minute drive from downtown Guerneville, which has a strip with shops, restaurants, and bars. But it also feels remote and woodsy. You're walking distance from the Russian River, which is really pretty. The space isn't large--one main living/dining/kitchen area and three relatively small bedrooms--but it's clean and cozy and welcoming. We used it as a base for wine tasting and hiking. The instructions were all very clear. Make sure to bring your own coffee!

We loved this cozy cabin which was an easy place to come and spread out for a couple of days. We loved how they had no TV in the living room (it’s in the BR’s if you must), which made it better for playing board games and talking/spending time together. Kitchen was nicely stocked and we prepped some meals easily. We were trying to imagine how they got appliances like a refrigerator into the home! It’s perched pretty high! Conveniently located to stores and restaurants too! ❤️

Such a lovely home! Comfortable beds, good kitchen layout, wood burning fireplace and hot tub! I htink a storm had recently passed through so the exterior was a bit messy but we only spent time in the hot tub so it wasn't an issue. Very easty to get to downtown Guerneville and all the local sights. Would definately recommend.

We had a fabulous stay in this beautiful house that felt suspended in the forest!! With three rooms with queen beds and a cozy combined kitchen, dining area and living room there was just enough room for 3 couples. We particularly enjoyed that the hot tub was conveniently located a few steps away from the cozy fireplace inside the house. We were so happy our dogs were welcome to join and they especially enjoyed the quick and easy walk to the dog friendly beach :) Affordable and perfect for a weekend getaway, we only wish we could have stayed all week!!

We absolutely adored staying here. The home and amenities exceeded our hopes and expectations! All of us agreed we have never slept better in our lives. There is a healing energy to these amazing trees, and to the home overall. One small suggestion i offer is to get a small paring knife for cheese. We will definitely be back. Thank you so much.

Wonderful house but wicked stairs :) You will get a leg work out in going up these, but the serenity at the top is worth it. Amazing deck space with the hot tub made for some wonderful evenings. Kitchen is well equipped with what you need. The beds are a little squeaky, but comfortable. The walk in to town isn't too bad, but it's still a hike of about 15 minutes or so.

Above and Beyond was a great place to stay; very comfortable with all the amenities... Only issues were the small parking spaces on the road in front (we had a pickup truck!) and the 55 stairs to reach the house. We had our 80 year old mom with us who is not as mobile as she used to be! Other than that, it was great! Would stay again!

This is my second time staying at Above and Beyond and have a third booked for later this summer. The house is in a great location, only about 20 minutes or so walk to the main part of town. Super close to private beach access and the house is fully stocked with everything you need. If I were to complain about one thing, is there is no TV in any of the common areas and although we are mostly outdoors enjoying ourselves, I have a few friends who like to get up early and watch sports and if you are in the one room without a TV you are out of luck. Otherwise, this place is perfect!

The place had all that we needed, including the hot tub which was wonderful! Beautiful view of the trees and very quiet. The beach nearby is also lovely and never too crowded.

The only con would be that there are a lot of stairs leading to the house which could make it a difficult spot for some people.

This place was clean, nice and lots of comfort.What I would improve is: wireless internet connection not available, but it did have wired internet if you knew how to tap into it. What might catch you off guard: The stairs to the top. Climb climb. The beauty. This place is very nice. Fairly quiet. Fairly excluded. I would definitely stay here again

Thanks for the feedback - there is now wifi! Above and Beyond is a new property as a vacation home and it took just a bit longer to get the wifi going than the regular high speed connection. The new info is in the home binder (with all the other interesting house details like breaker box locations and how to get to the river). Thanks for sharing!

"A Family affair"

5 of 5

We had so much fun in this house! It has a wonderful floor plan with open windows and views of the redwoods that make one feel as if they are in a treehouse. My personal favorites... The kitchen, so clean functional and open with every amenity a mom could want for whipping up meals... The hot tub,perfect temperature,amazing jets,enough said. Last but not least, the separation of the bedrooms for space and privacy when needed. It felt just like home,but much cleaner!!
