Casa Luna

Cozy Riverfront Cabin with River Views

Description

Enjoy the romance of Casa Luna, a vintage riverfront cabin on the Russian River. This home features the charm of the 1940s era in which it was built, but has the comfort of modern appliances. This home offers hardwood floors, a high wood-beam ceiling, brick fireplace, the warmth of old knotty pine paneled walls and a country kitchen with a view of the river. Enjoy the wonderfully expansive and private deck that wraps around two sides of the house and overlooks your own private meadow sloping down to the river. Wildflowers bloom late into the summer here. Relax in the hot tub and romantic outdoor shower surrounded by the privacy of majestic redwoods and the fragrance of bay trees. Stroll down the path through the meadow to the water's edge and enjoy a private floating river dock and canoe and paddleboat. (Available mid-June through mid-September.)

Casa Luna's amenities include a fully equipped kitchen with 5 burner gas range and convection oven, new dishwasher, recently remodeled Italian tile bathroom, bed and bath linens, romantic hot water outdoor shower surrounded by redwoods and adjacent to a large hot tub, comfortable deck lounge furniture and gas barbecue, a clothes washer, dryer and safe off-road parking. The house is conveniently located minutes from the towns of Guerneville, Rio Nido and Duncan Mills. All three towns offer shopping, restaurants, movies, churches, public river beaches, as well as canoe and kayak rentals. Northwood Golf Course and Pee Wee Golf are only a few minutes away. The Pacific Ocean and stunning Sonoma Coast are a lovely 20 minute drive away.

Casa Luna is a non-smoking house and is dog friendly. The fully-fenced deck provides lots of space for a dog to soak up the sun and lounge. Your well-behaved mature dog is most welcome!
Casa Luna features a keyless entry system, meaning you will have the convenience of an express check-in directly at the home!

"Great times in Guernville"

4 of 5

I just recently stayed at Casa Luna with a small group of girlfriends, and we had a great time at the house. The location is great, it is really close to the town on Guernville, but also close to the beach and great redwood hikes and wine country of course. The deck is a great space to relax. While we were there we also hire two massage therapists to come out and give us massages at the house. It was GREAT to just be able to hop in the spa after a nice massage and not have to go anywhere. I highly recommend it!! Overall it was a great weekend and I can't wait to go back.

Manager Response:

Thank you for the review!

It sounds like an awesome trip! I'm so glad you were able to relax and rejuvenate at Casa Luna... I can totally envision side by side massages on the back deck and sliding over to the hot tub and outdoor shower. Sounds perfect.

I hope we'll see you all again soon!

"Casa luna - great location and private"

4 of 5

We really enjoyed Casa Luna. The location was wonderful close to Guerneville. The water on the river however, was very low not very enjoyable. The house was a little dark but, very clean and nice.

"Perfect Memorial Day Weekend"

5 of 5

We had an amazing time at Casa Luna. The house was private but close to town if we needed. The river access was the best we've had compared to the many other rentals we've stayed at along the river. The house had almost everything we needed. The one and only thing we needed that they didn't provide was beach towels. They provide towels for showers but they make a point to ask you not to bring their towels to the river or to the beach so make sure to bring your own beach towels. The kitchen was stocked with all the essentials but there were also many things left behind from other people that may come in handy. There was even some booze left over! There were tons of river toys in the garage for our use. There really is no need to bring your own things for the river. We ended up renting a kayak because that's what we wanted but the other couple we were with used one of the canoe's they provided. There was also a pattle boat along with some other random things. The grill worked very well (made us want to go home and replace ours) and the washer and dryer was a nice bonus so we could go home with clean, dry clothes. The best part was definitely the large patio. There was plenty of seating for lounging, a nice picnic table for eating at, and the hot tub was awesome to warm up in when needed. The 4 of us and our dog had an excellent time. I'd like to keep this place our little secret but since that's not going to happen, I'd recommend this place to anyone and we will definitely be staying here again.

Manager Response:

Thank you!
What a lovely review - thank you for sharing it with future guests - and we're glad you had such a great time at Casa Luna. You're right - the house does not provide beach towels, so folks should definitely bring towels for the hot tub and beach.

We look forward to seeing you again!

"Cute little house"

3 of 5

The vacation/home was perfect for a party of one(two if you count the hound) A beautiful view, clean rooms. The downfall was the constant ringing of the phone.( had to unplug the phone to be able to finish up my paper) Close to the town but far enough away not the hear to much noise.

Manager Response:

Hello!

Thank you for sharing a review with us and future guests! Casa Luna is a great spot and we'll see about getting the phone number added to the national do not call registry - maybe that will help with the ringing phone!

"Lovely little hidden gem"

5 of 5

We stayed for two nights in this little hidden cabin. Everything was impecable. Every little detail is thought out and the location is very convenient. My only complaint would be that there arent a lot of dining locations near by. But overall we would totally go back and stay there!

Manager Response:

Hello!
Thanks for sharing a review of Casa Luna - it is a great cabin! It is in a residential neighborhood, but downtown Guerneville is experiencing a wonderful boom of restaurants right now. In fact, most of Main Street will be restaurants by spring - we're loving it!

"Loved it!"

4 of 5

Casa Luna was so comfortable and we had everything we needed to make an awesome weekend. We felt like we were staying at a friend's house. We love to cook and grill, and found everything we needed in the kitchen. The deck and the trees were beautiful - we are bird watchers and we were in heaven watching the ospreys :)Beds were super comfy, and the area is so nice and quiet.I removed one star because the hot tub was actually too hot to sit in, and we were not able to adjust it lower, and there was no extra toilet paper anywhere - we had to go buy more. It was technically 'off season' when we were there, so the boats and kayaks were not available, but the unseasonably warm weather made us really want to use them! You might consider boat use by weather, not by date!

"Perfect long weekend getaway"

5 of 5

What a great little cabin! On the water with it's own dock (and canoe), inner tubes, hot tub, gas grill, and tunes. We spent most of the time on the dock with drinks, casually floating, and grilling delicious food. Evenings were hot tubbing and eating and drinking even more. I just wanted to lounge the summer days away. Town was nearby so it was easy to get groceries. Next time I'm going to make sure to book an extra day so I can explore more in the canoe.

"Quiet & Peaceful"

3 of 5

Enjoyed the secluded area and privacy. The outdoor areas are amazing. The updated bathroom is nice and the master bed was very comfortable. Loved the hot tub! Great central location to coast and wineries. That being said, the interior of the house needs a very thorough cleaning. There was a lot of dog hair on the carpet and furniture. I seriously doubt it was vacuumed before we arrived. The bottom of our socks were dirty after walking through the house. A lot of dust in the corners with along with dead bugs and spiders. Only 3 washcloths were supplied; not really enough, so we pretty much washed towels and washcloths daily. There were dead flies and food crumbs on the kitchen window sill. The house was cleaner when we left than when we arrived.

Manager Response:

Hello!

Thank you for the review - we appreciate the feedback and are in the process of considering a new cleaner for this awesome home. Your feedback helps us with this process. We're very sorry you didn't experience the house at its cleanest and I believe there was some compensation to you after your stay for the inconvenience as well... I hope you'll come back and visit again to give Casa Luna another chance!

We also love the tranquility of this home... With wild flowers and grasses between the house and the river, you can really relax and enjoy!

Thank you!

"Great family vacation!"

This was our second visit to Casa Luna. It is just a great experience in every way. Charming comfortable cabin, great wrap around deck with views, easy river access, well equipped kitchen. What's not to like?

Manager Response:

Hi!
If it's your second visit, you must have enjoyed the new outdoor shower too! And the new dock platform! Casa Luna is a great house!

"Relaxing Setting"

4 of 5

Coming from Southern Calif., we were looking for a setting in the trees and close to the river. This little house fit both criteria.The house itself was on the older side with some comfortable renovations. There are still some remnants of age such as an occasional wiff of musty odor, which is to be expected in an area of heavy rainfall.The proximity to the river, awesome deck w/ newish gas bbq, outdoor shower and jacuzzi were definite pluses.For six dollars, we bought a large bag of unsalted peanuts at the Costco in Santa Rosa and enjoyed spreading them out on the deck and watching the Bluejays swoop in, pick them up, and hide them in the flower pots.If you're looking for a relaxing environment, this place is quiet, peaceful and in a beautiful setting. Also, don't miss visiting the Armstrong Redwood Reserve 1 1/2 mi out of Guerneville.

Manager Response:

Hi!

Thanks for the review! And... Now we know why the Blue Jays have taken such an interest in this home!!!! I know it's fun to do, but as a rule of thumb it's best not to feed the critters... In the way of unintended consequences - the Jays started to defend the deck from subsequent guests - and now it makes sense! For all future guests - this is no longer an issue!

Casa Luna is a fantastic house and we're glad you enjoyed the house! We appreciated your feedback that a slight musty odor had come up and the carpets have been professionally cleaned since your stay - this should help tremendously. But you are also correct that this is an area with lots of ambient moisture. We do what we can to combat it!

I hope you'll come back for a visit this coming summer - minus the peanuts!

"Review of Casa Luna/Russian River Vacation Rentals"

3 of 5

I love the RR area and have stayed at homes over the years. The other area I love is Sea Ranch. While the outside of the home (deck and dock w/river views) was wonderful, the home was old, the kitchen was funky, the second bed needed to be replaced, the house smelled from old carpets and a fireplace that had not been cleaned for years. I thought the price of $1200 for 4 nights was extremely overpriced and overrated. I can stay at a beautiful, clean bluff home at Sea Ranch for a week for that price. The house was in the process of being cleaned when we arrived at 4pm. The hottub kept blowing circuit breakers, the kitchen smelled of propane gas and calls to the rental office in regard to fixing the hottub and checking on the propane were met with disinterest. The hottub man happened to arrive for routine maintenance but had not received a call from the office. The propane issue went ignored. The trash had not been picked up in over a week and the trash collectors neglected to pick up on the day scheduled. While the deck area is the home's selling point, along with private river access, I think the inside of the home needs to be updated to warrant the price. Old beds, tear the carpets out, upgrade the kitchen or decrease the price. I would not use this property again, given how shoddy the inside was, aside from the bathroom remodel. I'd be wary of using the rental agency again, given their seemingly lack of investment in keeping repeat customers.

Manager Response:

Hello -

Well, I'm not sure where to start since this is one of our most frequently re-rented homes and the guests that come back to it every year are still planning return trips. There have been several great improvements in the last year including a fully re-modeled bathroom and new enclosed outdoor shower on the deck next to the hot tub.

I'll let the other reviews of this home speak to the rest of this review.

"Loved our cabin at Casa Luna"

4 of 5

We loved everything about the rental, especially the super easy river access and large deck w/hot tub. Outdoor shower was lovely, as well. The house was cozy and comfortable. The only negative was the two white chairs in the living room were dirty. Nothing too horrible, just a byproduct of white chairs over years of use. Also, the hot tub cleaners didn't show up when they were supposed to and had to be called back out. Overall, we loved our stay here and would definitely come back!

Manager Response:

Hello!

Thank you for the kind words! Casa Luna is a great house to relax and enjoy the river...

Sadly, we know about the white living room chairs. They are cleaned after every guest stay but there is a bit of wear and tear from being in a vacation home! We also encourage guests to call the office if anything doesn't look right (like the spa service) and we'll get someone out to address the issue right away!

I hope we'll see you again!

"Fantastic Family Vacation Destination"

5 of 5

Absolutely great experience. Our only complaint was the 1 hour window we were given for check in before the office closed (after driving for 7 1/2 hours). There was a problem with the key and we had a few bad moments, before the manager came and let us in. As for the cabin and Russian River in general we are still talking about it. For families with kids and a dog it was perfect.

Manager Response:

Hello!

Check in at our homes is 4 pm (unless we clear it in advance with the owners, cleaners, etc depending on the situation and when the last guests checked out) and we leave the office at 5 pm... When there's a back to back booking (one person checking out at noon and the next checking in at 4 pm) the cleaners need the full four hours to do laundry, sanitize, generally clean the house and make it lovely for the new guest.

Guests may check in anytime after 4 pm (4 to 5 pm in the office or using our lock box after 5 pm). It's rare, but occasionally a guest has difficulty with the key lock box. If the wrong code is used 3 times in a row, you have to wait 5 to 10 minutes to try again. It's a security thing. My best recommendation is to take a deep breath, read your provided paperwork thoroughly and try again. If it still doesn't work, use the emergency after hours phone number in your paperwork and one of us will be paged immediately. Then get an ice cream down the street!

Everything is better with ice cream!
