Description

Get a Night Free Jan-Mar! See description for details. La Rive Gauche is a charming family home nestled among the redwoods and overlooking the Russian River. This cozy and rustic home features warm rich colors, wood floors, woodstove and country charm. Two sliding glass doors from the living room open onto a sunny deck with river views. The deck features a 4 person hot tub, redwood furniture and a charcoal barbecue. A flight of stairs leads to a seasonal vegetable garden and fenced yard with outdoor furniture. From the yard, 40 steps lead down the riverbank to a seasonal deep water dock and 3 kayaks (available mid-May through mid-September depending on river conditions). A great home for families in a quiet, residential neighborhood!

With 4 bedrooms and 3 baths, this home comfortably sleeps 8 guests. On the main floor, you'll find a full bath and 3 bedrooms (1 King and 2 sets of Twins). On the second floor is a master suite and full bath with lovely river views. Downstairs has a separate garden entrance and offers a game room with air hockey and a full bathroom (great for rinsing off after a swim). The well-equipped kitchen has a large refrigerator, granite countertops, garbage disposal, electric oven, gas cooktop, work island, plenty of counter space and a laundry room with a front-loading washer and dryer. No dishwasher.

Centrally located in Monte Rio, La Rive Gauche is within walking distance to many local attractions, including the Monte Rio public beach, Rio Theater, Bartlett's grocery, restaurants, bars and shops. Jenner by the Sea, Northwood Golf Course, Armstrong Woods and many Russian River wineries are just a short drive away. Explore the river by kayak, go fishing in the river, feed the ducks from the dock, or watch for river otters, turtles, ospreys and herons. The garden is for guests to enjoy, so feel free to pick some blackberries for breakfast, vegetables for dinner or apples for a pie!

This is a very comfortable 4-bed riverside home with everything you might want provided, even down to condiments, cooking oil and a generous supply of pots, pans and crockery. The owner allows dogs and the yard on to the river is safe and usable.

Just returned from a 3 day end of summer Holiday with friends/family and had the best time! Plenty of space for our group. The kitchen was the most well stocked in a vacation rental I have ever experienced. The garden is amazing -made tomatillo salsa that was delish! Easy river access from the dock and the air hockey table kept us entertained for hours. Neighbors were great and even got a little jam session from the guys across the street who practicing for a show the following night - awesome music! There were 2 other cats besides Daisy who kept us company and filled the void for those of us missing our pets at home - super cool. Read about the home's history in the accommodation books and you truly can feel all the love this family has put into this house - thank you for sharing your beautiful home. Management company very accommodating and highly recommended. All in all we had an awesome time and hope to go back next year.

This was the best place that we have stayed and we have already booked for next summer. The cabin was well equipped and very comfortable. It was amazing how cool it stayed indoors when it was so hot outside. The twin beds meant that everyone had their own bed so there was no sharing. The kayaks were well used as was the spa. Daisy, the cat, was a real bonus. We hope to see him again next year!

The property is a living garden, both front and back! The cat that visited us daily was a nice addition to our 7 adults. The place was spacious and the furnishings comfortable and very accommodating. The binder was very helpful to navigate anywhere in the area. The hot tub was a center for evening retreating! The only negative was the showering. Only two quick hot showers at night and morning were tweaked out however I feel confident this will be addressed by the owner who generally loves this place. It's a keeper!

"Comfortable beds, no view of the river"

3 of 5

Nice house but really no view of the river. Pictures need to be updated to show the tall trees/bushes that hide the view of the river. If it is possible to trim the trees/bushes it would be a nice view. The game room is so smelly that we opened and closed the door immediately and never went back. Supposedly a full bath but we could not even go that far into the room to check. Essentially it is a 4 bedroom, 2 bath house that sleeps 8. Not sure the 1st floor shower had been cleaned because I found a bobby pin on the floor of the shower. Never spent time outside because you could not see the river and there were so many decorative items on the table there was little room to put anything. I had to move the decorative items off the dresser and the seat in the shower so they would be useable. Cute cat get coming around and we noticed the food water bowls on the front porch. We found the cat food in the cupboard above the refrigerator and fed him all weekend. It appeared that he definitely belongs to the house. Hope someone continues to feed him. Beds comfortable, lots of nice towels. Would recommend for adults only because of the river access.

"Awesome Area and Rental"

5 of 5

House was perfect for our family of six. Clean, organized, stocked for outdoor activities, convenient to wine tasting, ocean, and hiking. Loved it. Great vacation!

Manager Response:

Thank you for the review!

La Rive Gauche is a great spot for adventuring! Families and friends alike love staying here - especially with the hot tub, kayaks and easy-to-use kitchen.

I hope we'll see you again!

"Amazing and relaxing home on the river"

5 of 5

It is funny to me that I begin the review with the bathroom, but the downstairs bathroom has redwood trees looking in on it. It is gorgeous, have you ever experienced that? The windows in the bathroom are designed so that you can look up at the giant redwood surrounding the house and it is a great view and some great architecture. The rest of the house is great too. All three generations of our family kept commenting on how relaxing it was, how beautiful it was and how much fun it was. Four bedrooms fit everyone, hot tub was great, the kayaks we used on the river were great, the kids loved the air hockey. The kitchen had everything we needed. We are definitely going to book this house again next year. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

Manager Response:

Hi!
Thank you for the review! You are going to make the owner's day with the bathroom compliments - it was her favorite remodel in the house!

I hope we'll see you again soon!

"loved loved loved it!"

we had a great time. we were 2 adults, 2 teens, 2 dogs. the neighbors were horrid loud drunks, but the house was divine so bring earplugs. i saw a bald eagle the first day. the osprey were amazing to watch. the vegetable garden was great to have. also we found endless wild blackberrries, a peach tree, a plum tree and an apple tree on the property. the beds were great, the main shower was heaven and you can just gaze up at giant redwoods while you shower. there is a very large "butterfly lilac" tree outside and i got the most amazing photos of hummingbirds and butterflies, which were there non stop all day long! i could see the mily way all night long, the night sky is amazing here.the kitchen was stocked, the owners and management seemed very kind and reasonable.the kayaks were great, not too old. the area and location is great, and you can walk to the store or a few restaurants. id definatley go back again, and i normally never hit the same vacation home twice. this was a winner!

"Wonderful, relaxing vacation on he river!"

5 of 5

Impeccable service and the home was delightful. So relaxing to sit on the deck and look out at the gorgeous view. Very nice kitchen and plenty of room for our family. The absolute best part was being able to walk down the stairs to fenced garden and private dock to use the provided kayaks for a lazy paddle up or down the river. The week went by way too fast!

Manager Response:

Glad you enjoyed your stay - sorry that it went by so fast! Hopefully, we'll see you next summer...

"Great deck and yard"

3 of 5

House was setup well, had a great deck and green lawn. It was a little difficult getting to the water but the overall experience was very positive.

Manager Response:

Hi!

Thanks for the review! This year the water level fluctuated more than some... :)

"Very pleasant stay in comfortable home"

4 of 5

La Rive Gauche isn't much to look at from the front entrance, but step inside for a very comfortable, well-equipped home. Particularly enjoyed the deck and back yard with its view of the river and impressive garden. Walking distance to a couple of good restaurants and central to Russian River wineries and the coast. Good value for a group of friends traveling together.

"Fun relaxing weekend"

5 of 5

My friends and I had an amazing time here! Loved the easy river access through the steps in the backyard. It was nice being so secluded on the dock. Especially loved the quaint little vegetable/fruit garden, what a nice added touch. The kitchen was fully stocked, house was clean and completely comfortable. It was the perfect amount of space for 8 people. Really enjoyed the hot tub on the deck as well as the bbq grill for nice lazy summer days. Only wish we could've stayed longer!

Manager Response:

Hello,

The garden *is* a great feature to this house... Fresh strawberries or tomatoes for breakfast or afternoon snacking is the best! And we love the owner for putting so much love and energy into this property and garden... I think all the La Rive Gauche guests can feel it!

Hope we'll see you again!
