Description

Bella Vita is quietly situated in a delightful sunny Monte Rio neighborhood. Skillfully remodeled to like-new, glass doors and picture windows lavish natural light through every room. Welcome the whole family to be together for relaxation and meals! You'll cook up a storm in the full kitchen featuring a professional-grade Wolf range and spill onto the private patio for dining alfresco alongside a backlit waterfall. Families with kids and dogs relish the sunny, fully fenced backyard, back deck, patio with BBQ, and hot tub.

Cozy up in the living room to watch a movie or take a walk to the Monte Rio Beach, restaurants, locally made ice cream, and additional recreation. You're a short drive to wineries, coastal hikes, adventures in redwood forests, or floating down the Russian River. And after a day of exploration, luxuriate in the master bathroom's soaking tub or glass-walled shower. Contemporary furnishings and accessories grace this modern interpretation of a river family home.

Beautiful home

Reviewed on 2022-05-23 by Audrey
Overall

Beautiful home. Kitchen was fully stocked, and stove and oven were so great to use! Some of the back doors were a little tough to lock; what worked for us is turning the handle up before locking. They only have trash and recycling, but we had a sweet conversation with the gentleman next door and he let us use his compost bin. Very lovely stay overall!-via Airbnb

Manager's Response

Hello Audrey, We are working on getting some compost bins for each home, we are so glad the neighbor was so kind! Thank you for staying with us and being such wonderful guests! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you all again :)

This house was perfect for a family getaway. It is clean and comfortable. We enjoyed lounging in the backyard (which has a lovely garden) and hot tub. We ended up having an impromptu air hockey tournament in the garage game room. We would definitely stay here again!-via Airbnb

Really great place for a vacation in Monte Rio. We stayed with our 3 yr old daughter and our small dog. The layout and furnishings in the place are fantastic. The kitchen is made for cooking with high end appliances, good quality knives and every utility you could need. It even had a Vitamix! Nice backyard. The overall layout was one that could easily accommodate two couples and still have space. Will be making this a regular spot when staying around Russian River.-via Airbnb

What a gem of a home! So relaxing. So clean. Gorgeously appointed and stocked with all the day to day kitchen items we’d reach for in our own home. We made some fun memories here as a family of 5 (2 parents, 1 infant and 2 pups). Our pups enjoyed the fully fenced backyard. We enjoyed the hot tub and great layout of the living room - cozying up by the fireplace was so lovely! Very much a home away from home! Thank you for hosting us! River Homes was very responsive and helpful throughout our stay. We definitely want to return!-via Airbnb

Such a lovely house in a beautiful location. We were really impressed with the design of the house and how comfortable it was. Especially great for families with children. Loved relaxing in the backyard, gathering in the common area, and walking to the Monte Rio beach each day. Very clean and full of thoughtful amenities.-via Airbnb

Very Clean and Modern Home

Re: Russian River Vacation Homes - Bella Vita. We stayed for a few nights at this lovely, very clean & modern home. It's close to the river & Armstrong Redwood State Natural Reserve (easy hike), not too far from ocean (15 minute drive) & restaurants. Our family enjoyed the hot tub & had a blast with the game room. Appreciated the ambiance of the backyard fountain & gorgeous roses in the front yard (April 2022). The soft mattress top was OK for me (I like to lie on my sides), but not firm enough for my husband's back. Would definitely consider returning, but ideally, when the ice cream store (w/in walking distance) is open for the season.-via Airbnb

Bella Vita is perfectly appointed- All the details to make you feel like you are at home. The home is beautiful and well cared for. Very quiet and respectful neighborhood. Each room in the home is perfectly set up. Super comfy beds and lots of extra blankets. The yard is beautiful. We loved being able to cook dinner on the outside grill as well as enjoyed doing homeschool outside at the table with umbrella. The hot tub was a hit as well. Super fun to have the air hockey/pool table and loved the surround sound for watching a good movie together in the living room. We absolutely loved our stay. We highly recommend for anyone looking to enjoy all the comforts of home while you are away from home. - via AirBnB

Absolutely Great Place!

Absolutely great place! would go there again in a heartbeat. We rented the house for a weekend as family of four with two kids (5 and 2). The house was really easy to access and the description on how to enter was week described in the Hospitality app. take a screenshot before you go though as we had no cellular reception with AT&T. We really liked the spacious and bright house. The kitchen was very well equipped and had plenty of plates, pans, utensils etc. they had a toaster, micro wave, hot water boiler, coffee maker and the gas stove top even had a grill section. The bathrooms were very clean, modern, and well stuffed with plenty of towels. The bedrooms were spacious and what was great for our family with kids: all had blackout shades so it was perfect for naptimes. There bedroom with the bunk bed even had a kids nightlight and a really comfy seat which it kids enjoyed a lot. The living room has a huge TV with DVD system and speakers from the ceiling. Our personal favorite was the gas fireplace though. The garage is a game room with pool billiard and you can flip the table to play a different game. The outside seating on the porch as well as in the backyard are amazing. There is lots of light, fresh herbs which we used for cooking and two fountains which added to the calmness and peacefulness if the place. The hot tub was really nice and clean. We explored Monte Rio Beach, Downtown Guernville for lunch and the Armstrong preserve for a nice hike which is all within 10 min of a drive from the place. There is a school with a really nice playground about a block away from the house which was a big plus with the kids. I can highly recommend this place and will surely visit again. - Via AirBnB

Had a great time in the area and at the house. It was close to things to do such as the ocean, river, hiking and wineries. Great biking trail to the wineries about 20 minutes from house. Also, had a great time at the house. Our child loved the air hockey and spa. The kitchen was great for Thanksgiving dinner. Host was very responsive and even brought us towels and a missing cutting board right away. Would definitely stay here again. - via AirBnB

This place is super comfortable with a well stocked kitchen, laundry/ play room, 2 big bed rooms plus a kids bunk bed (room) and a lovely garden with hot tub. My family and I really enjoyed our stay and the location was convenient. We did not mind the 50 minutes drive to Sonoma train town and roughly about 30 minutes drive to the Schulz museum. The beds are very comfortable and our kids could get good sleep. I would definitely recommend this place!
