Up and Away

Description

Up and Away is a tastefull getaway, a true Villa Grande find. Stay in this historic river community and at the same time enjoy the comforts of modern construction and amenities. The Villa Grande community has a gorgeous river beach, great location and a laid-back ambience.

Up and Away has an open floor plan. The kitchen is complete with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. The adjacent living area has a queen sofa bed and the dining area has a dining table for 4 (there is room for 2 to dine at the counter bar). All occupy an open, well-lit room with hardwood floors and high ceilings. A door off the living area opens to a lovely front porch, furnished with a bar height 2-person table and chairs and a double porch seat.

The main living space also features a large Flatscreen TV with Comcast cable and a DVD/Blu-Ray player. At the end of the short hallway is the roomy, bright master bedroom with an attached bathroom. Also off the hallway, but closer to the living area, is the second bedroom with a twin bed and twin trundle bed. The second bedroom, with a small desk and sitting area, does double duty as a pleasant office space. The third door off the hallway opens to the second full bathroom. Both bathrooms have combined tub/showers.

Up and Away has a large, fully fenced yard and patio. The patio, easily accessible through a side gate, is the sunniest spot on the property. An outdoor dining set, gas barbecue and two chaise lounges are set on the patio. It's a great place for cooking and hanging outside. The hot tub, tucked away at the far end of the patio, is surrounded on 3 sides by a privacy screen. The back portion of the yard is shaded and planted with greenery. For the dogs in your family, a dog run with kennels is located on along the northern side of house. The large, sandy, dog-friendly neighborhood beach is a short walk away.

The home was very clean and modern. It was certainly a very nice place to stay while up in the Russian River area. There were plenty of linens (towels, blankets, pillows) which was nice. The kitchen was stocked with everything. There was a washer/dryer in the garage which was really helpful to use on our last day. The house is in a very serene, wooded area and close to town. If I ever visit the area again, I would happily stay here again.

We stayed here over the New Year holiday with our dogs. It was nice to get away from all of the fireworks and other noise in the city. The house is pretty much as advertised--what appealed to me was the fenced yard for the dogs. While I can see the yard band the front balcony eing really great in the summertime, the weather during our stay was cold and wet so we really didn't use it much. The house is cute and cozy and is very livable as a small space. There were plenty of bed and bath linens and the kitchen for the most part was well equipped for cooking at the house. The knobs on the stove were a bit funky and it would be nice if there was a small or medium sized nonstick frying pan but everything else was great. Wifi worked well but as with much of this area the cell phone service at the house was spotty. The little neighborhood was adorable, especially with all the holiday lights up on surrounding houses.

We have been to Up & Away before and will return in the future. It is perfect for a stay up at the River.

"Conveniently located home"

5 of 5

Lovely home in a beautiful part of Monte Rio. Blocks to the River and an easy walk along flat path and roads. Home was spacious, well furnished and very relaxing. Spa in backyard was very private. Would definitely stay here again if visiting the Russian River.

Manager Response:

Thank you for sharing a lovely review with future guests!

I love the beach closest to Up & Away! It's part of the Patterson Point Preserve managed by the Friends of Villa Grande - a treat for locals and visitors alike.

"Very comfortable stay"

5 of 5

This unusual apartment has been renovated to be very attractive. The kitchen, in particular, is quite handsome with its new countertop and cabinetry. All the natural wood makes this a lovely place to stay in the very small, woodsy "town" of Monte Rio. Having two full bathrooms was a real plus. The check-in process was easy, but it would have been nice to be able to check out by leaving the keys inside without having to make a trip back to the rental office which is a few miles away. The second bedroom does not have any closet, which was a bit inconvenient for the third member of our party, but the master bedroom closet was large enough for all of us to share. We were three adult relatives, visiting this area to attend a wedding. Overall we had a very enjoyable stay and would definitely recommend this property.

Manager Response:

Hello!
Thank you - the owners have done quite a lot of work modernizing this home - and it shows. The kitchen is delightful! And we appreciate the feedback about the check in process too. Many of our homeowners are switching to a keyless entry system that streamlines the check in and checkout process. Your feedback helps us and owners make informed decisions about the value of this system. For the record, unless you leave by Hwy 1, the office is on the way back out of town for most of our homes.

Thank you!
:)

"We all had a wonderful time including the dog!"

4 of 5

This was the first time we went away with our black lab, Roxanne the lovely. The house was perfect, it even had large dog beds. The neighbors were great. They invited us to march in the local July 4th parade and then to a party in a locals home afterwards. family and friends were able to come and stay with us for a few days and they all informed us that we really need to stay here next year!

"Great getaway"

4 of 5

My experience here was great. The house was very clean and had everything we needed. It was in a quiet, secluded area which made for a total getaway experience. Only gripe was that it was hard to find and directions weren't very clear.

Manager Response:

Hello!
Thank you for leaving a great review for Up & Away - it's a great property! As you pointed out, some folks find it a bit tricky navigating the streets to the house - the driving directions listed in the Reservation Packet we send guests are the best... Don't use GPS or car navigation! Until the county is able to cut away branches from some of the road signs, we recommend driving slowly when you get close...
