Hummingbird House

Stunning Hillside Home with Forest Views

Description

Hummingbird House is a beautiful find: a lovely well-equipped home on a sunny property with views, privacy, numerous amenities, and a central Russian River Valley location. Sit out on one of the lovely decks with morning coffee, soaking up the sun, enjoying the tranquility. Then, set off on a great day of exploring all Sonoma County has to offer! When the day is done, come back, make dinner with the local ingredients you've collected, and take an evening soak in the large hot tub.

Hummingbird House is a 3 story home nestled against a sloping hill and overlooking a grove of redwood trees. The top story, which is also the entry-level, has the open living room, kitchen and dining areas. The kitchen is well-equipped, the dining table comfortably seats 6 people, and the living room has floor to ceiling windows, a large couch, a flat screen TV (you can log in to your Netflix, Pandora or HuluPlus accounts) and a wood-burning stove. Sliding doors lead from the dining area out to the first of three decks, where the gas BBQ and outdoor dining table are located. Also on the top story are a small office, with a desk perfect for finishing a bit of work or browsing the internet, and a bathroom with a free-standing tub.

The second story, accessed by stairs from the living area, has a bedroom with a queen bed, a half bath/laundry room, and the master bedroom, with a king bed, its own bathroom and sliding doors to the middle story deck. The master bedroom bathroom has a shower/bathtub combo. Stairs from the middle story hall lead to the lowest story, which is entirely made up of a bedroom suite with a queen bed, small sitting area and a bathroom with a shower. A door leads from the suite to the lowest deck, where the large hot tub and lounge chairs are located. The hot tub deck can also be accessed by a spiral staircase from the second level deck or from stairs leading up from the yard.

The meadow-like yard is large and is full of open space and scattered fruit trees. The upper portion of the sloping hillside is tastefully landscaped. There is plenty of space for kids to play and dogs to run (please note the yard is not fenced, so unleashed dogs need to be under voice control). Surrounding the open meadow area is a forest of redwood trees. The Russian River is just down the road, and river access is less than a mile away. The start of Russian River Valley Wineries is less than 3 miles away.

Absolutely loved our stay at Hummingbird House! Enjoyed a trip with several friends to do some wine tasting and it fit our needs perfectly. It was close enough to amenities, but still felt like you were hidden in a forest far from the crowds. The layout of the house provided all our guests to maintain some privacy (with rooms and bathrooms on separate floors) while the living space allowed everyone to gather together in an open, airy setting. All the furniture was in good condition and very comfortable. And the wood-burning stove added a warm bit of character. The grounds were beautiful and we even saw some deer wander through the yard in the morning. I would also definitely recommend this rental company based on their customer service alone. We appreciated the nice touch of a welcome bottle of wine upon our arrival, which we promptly put to good use! This was our first time using Russian River Vacation Homes and they were excellent in communicating and providing information throughout the entire process. We had an issue with the hot tub our first night and after speaking with Jordan, she took care of it within 24 hours (on a Holiday Weekend) However, I would recommend replacing the coffee maker as it did not operate efficiently and was very disappointing for the coffee drinkers in our group. Check-in/Check-out was a breeze. I wouldn't hesitate to book through this company again - and in fact, I am considering doing so for a future family getaway.

"Big, Private home nestled in the forest"

4 of 5

Stayed at the Hummingbird House with 2 other couples and the place was a great little retreat in the Russian River Valley. Very private - you can't see any other houses from the decks, and the property is fantastic - surrounded by trees, misty mornings on the deck were great. Layout is also perfect for big groups, where each room is on basically its own level. The management company is also responsive and getting in was a breeze. They get dinged one star for the lack of some basic amenities like kitchen sponges, etc - and the coffee machine did not work, but those are fixable and did not impact us too much.

"Lovely, private vacation rental in a beautiful location!"

4 of 5

We stayed at The Hummingbird House over a holiday weekend with six adults. It was great for our needs- spacious, comfortable, dog friendly, and perfectly located near the river access for a day of tubing. The house itself is well set-up, with the living and dining areas upstairs, and then with the three bedrooms on the lower two floors. We loved that there were four bathrooms, and three large decks which provided plenty of privacy for everyone, and lots of lounging space. The home is tastefully decorated, but still cozy enough that it feels comfortable and easy to kick back and relax without worrying about ruining furniture or keeping everything it its exact spot. The only thing to note is that the large, private yard is on a sloping hill, so not ideal for playing lawn sports if that was your intention. Also, while dog friendly, it is not fenced in (which is clearly noted on the website, so we were prepared, but good to remind other dog owners) and pretty close to the road, so you'd want to make sure you have your dog under voice command or that he/she isn't a wanderer. Other than that, a dishwasher would make the rental even better, but wasn't a deal breaker for us. Thanks for the lovely stay!

Manager Response:

Hello!

Thanks for the very thoughtful review! We love Hummingbird House!!! And so do guests - consistently! I'm not sure if the septic system can manage the addition of a dishwasher, but I'm passing the recommendation along. I hope we'll see you again!

"Amazing Value and Location"

4 of 5

Loved the privacy, view, and location of this property. All three bedrooms were cozy and quiet! Would have loved more abundant and comfortable seating (couch) in the main living area. We used the hot tub every night! So much to do near this home- wine, great hikes, and lovely small towns. We spent our Christmas Eve and Christmas Day here- it was a great holiday and cooked every meal in the house. It felt very much like home and we would love to return sometime.

Manager Response:

Hello and thank you for the feedback and review!
We love hearing what you enjoy and what you think could be better, so we can share it with the owners. And we're glad you got out and explored! You are always welcome back!

"Great house, great views, wonderful location!"

5 of 5

What a great place to stay while exploring the Russian River Valley and Sonoma wine country! It's a lovely quiet, peaceful spot set among the redwoods with a multitude of decks. The house is well equipped and well maintained. We mainly ate out (plenty of places near by) but the kitchen has all you would need to cook with the area's superb local ingredients. Highlights were having breakfast and coffee on the top deck and enjoying the hot tub at the end of a long day of hiking and wine tasting. It even has a great sound system with a collection of vinyl records which we finally tried out on our last day. Oh well, we will just have to come back.

Manager Response:

Hello!
And we'd love to have you back to explore more too! The owners have done an amazing job with the decks (several are new this past year) and really showing off the best views! Hummingbird House is such a cool place and well located for finding all the best wineries, breweries, hiking, foodie spots and so many more places to get a feel for West Sonoma County or just stay put.

"A great escape on a great escape vacation."

5 of 5

This property is well maintained, and the staff do a great job to make sure all needs are covered. My wife and I were travelling with 2 other couples (with whom we had not traveled before) and the communal spaces and the personal spaces really enhanced our experience. We were able to be together, and when it was time...be apart as well. The location was ideal for our exploration of the Sonoma area, and it was a nice respite to escape to when the evening drew. Decks, patios, hottub, grassy areas all provided nice settings to relax or be festive with our friends. The rooms were well-stocked, including the kitchen. The management crew were unfailingly polite, helpful, and professional. An unequivocal recommendation to others, and we hope to return as well. Oh...and we thought it was a bargain!

Manager Response:

Hello and thank you for the very kind words!

Guests love Hummingbird House and we do too! It's great for traveling with friends or family - plenty of places to be together or apart, lots of privacy and separate bathrooms. You can even all hang out on different decks if you have varying sun bathing needs.

I hope we'll see you again soon!

"Space for everyone! Beautiful woods, good hot tub and patios!"

4 of 5

I recommend this place for a family reunion, little weddings, bday celebrations. We stayed here with my husband and my parents.The place is clean and the beds are comfortable with good sheets and bedding! The kitchen is comfortable and has everything for cooking: pans, pots, knives, cutting boards and more! The office is very cozy and the fireplace is perfect. It was warm, clean and nice!The house is big and conveniently located close to the wineries, restaurant, grocery store. If I was the owner of this place I would paint the living room-kitchen area-it does need it.(scratches, dirt on the walls) I would use a warm beige color to make it cozy and soft. I really loved the natural touches as wood furniture (woven chairs, seating, benches, rugs). There were 5 of us and it felt like we needed more toilet paper and paper towels in the kitchen. There was only half of paper towel in the kitchen, half of toilet paper in each bathrooms. We bought some on our own and the problem was fixed. The laundry was a great plus and we loved it. The detergent was not provided although it was mentioned in the contract. And there is no dishwasher. So if you are ready to wash the dishes then it's okay. We did not mind washing the dishes but missed the dishwasher!We slept really well in the woods in this beautiful house! I would recommend this place to my friends!

"Space for everyone"

5 of 5

We were a group of three couples and had a fabulous New Year's holiday at Hummingbird House through Russian River Homes. Their staff were prompt in replying to all my inquires, booking the reservation, and following up after our stay. The property is remote, and included an excellent backyard for our three dogs (but make sure they're on tick medication!). There was ample space and privacy for everyone in the multi-tiered design of the house, with four decks and a large, open living room/kitchen/dining area. We especially enjoyed the word burning stove and outdoor fire pit, as well as the collection of old school records and record player hooked up to the home sound system! We would recommend RR Homes and this property to our friends in the future. Thanks!

"Hummingbird House last week of December 2013"

5 of 5

Stayed 3 nights at the Hummingbird House the last week of Dec. 2013. Loved the House, loved the layout. Having the bedrooms on separate floors was nice. The separation reduced the noise and gave some privacy. Used the Kitchen a lot, Cooked in every breakfast and dinner. Used the hot tub a couple of times, but really liked the patio fire pit. Great for sitting around and relaxing after each day. Regarding location, it fit our needs perfectly. We visited several Pinot Noir wineries and all were a short distance away. Also made it to the coast and the the State Park with the old growth Redwoods. Nice. Would rent this house again.

"great place to stay!"

We celebrated my Mom's 60th in Sonoma and it was the perfect house! We enjoyed everything from cooking in the kitchen to listening to the old albums in the office.

"Perfect stay."

5 of 5

We had the most amazing stay at Hummingbird House. We were a party of two couples - the house was very clean and well furnished with lovely big bedrooms. The kitchen and bathrooms were ideal and there was so much room on all three levels. We really enjoyed the outside space too - the balconies and garden were perfect for us. We saw lots of wildlife and birdlife and enjoyed several grills on the BBQ watching the sun go down with a cold beer - perfect!The area was also great and the rental people were so helpful and friendly - I would recommend Hummingbird House and the Russian River area to everyone. We can't wait to return for another vacation.

"Unexpectedly amazing!"

5 of 5

The house was amazing- nestled in the trees! So much room. Each couple had their own floor. The yard was beautiful. We had deer that would visit us and eat from the apple trees every day. Would definitely stay again. The staff at Russian River Vacation Homes was very friendly, very willing to help and go the extra mile.

"A Wonderful Stay"

5 of 5

The house was absolutely wonderful and exactly as described. It was also large and very accommodating for me and my group of friends pup. They had a very nice patio with an easy to use barbecue grill as well as a very relaxing hot tub. Only a few minutes drive along the main road, we also found access to the beach lake and rentals for canoeing and kayaking! We will definitely be back to the Russian River!

Manager Response:

Hello!
Thank you for sharing with future guests! Hummingbird House is just a hop, skip and jump from the Russian River and a great float towards the ocean. Can't wait to see you again!

4 of 5

Great place, great hot tub and outdoor spaces. Only issue is it advertised a dishwasher and didn't have one. Overall, great place.

Manager Response:

Hello!
Thanks for the review - I'm concerned about where you may have seen the dishwasher listed... I just double checked our website and related materials and next to Dishwasher is says "none." If you remember where it says otherwise - please let us know!!! We want to get it fixed!

"Perfect house for what we needed!"

4 of 5

This house was perfect for three couples. It has bedrooms and baths that provide plenty of "away" places so that people can get away from each other if they want to. The location at the top of a winding canyon road ensures that you have lovely forest views all around. The decks and the hot tub were treats. I was impressed with Russian River Vacation Homes because they quickly and cheerfully handled some minor house glitches. Lots of stairs, though,, so anyone with mobility issues might want to reconsider. But if you are healthy, all the stairs are a great way to work off the excellent wine and food of the region.

"A wonderful escape"

5 of 5

The hummingbird house was a perfect fit for the 3 adult couples in our group. The view is wonderful and the house was claen and comfortable. Our only complanint was that the stereo speakers were fried, so we couldn't listen to some of the classic records.The multi-level home gives you privacy, and the main floor worked great as a gathering space
