Description

Families love The Perfect View! It's centrally located in Monte Rio - walking distance to public beaches, boat rentals, restaurants, small market, skate park, and playground - and overlooking the Russian River. And the views!!! You'll relish the play of light on the river and redwood covered mountains across the valley as well as the steady stream of wildlife living in and around the river: otters, herons, ducks, swallows, turtles, and a wide variety of fish including Coho, Chinook, and Steelhead.

The rear deck is the real gem - mostly covered for year round use - with a 2-person hot tub, gas BBQ, outdoor dining area, and additional seating. It's the perfect spot for breakfast or simply a cup of coffee while watching the fog burn off on a summer morning, relaxing throughout the day with a book, grilling up a storm for dinner and eating al fresco, followed by a soak in the hot tub. Hanging out at the house is effortless, but it's also a great jumping off point for day trips into the redwoods, the coast and along the river.

While The Perfect View is perfectly situated on the Russian River, there is not direct access to the river from the house. We recommend walking downriver a quarter mile to Dutch Bill Beach (no services) or walking/driving across the river to the Monte Rio Beach where, in the summer, you can rent canoes/kayaks/inner tubes and supplement your picnic with food at the concession stands.

The Perfect View is a hop, skip, and a jump to downtown Occidental - known for dueling, family-run Italian restaurants; an amazing seasonal farmer's market; and Howard Station Café - don't miss their breakfast.

Fencing: The yard is fenced to the road but open to the river. The river bank is exposed - please keep an eye on kids playing in the backyard.

Common Amenities not included: This home has an A/C unit in the kitchen that does a great job cooling the common areas of the house. There are ceiling and freestanding fans for the bedrooms.

Proximity to wineries: The Perfect View is just under 5 miles to downtown Guerneville and several tasting rooms in town. Westside Road - with a fantastic number of vineyards and tasting rooms - is about 10 miles from the house.

Nearest River Beach: While The Perfect View overlooks the river, it does not have direct access to the river or a beach. The Monte Rio Public Beach is slightly downriver and across the river. It's a half mile walk or drive. There is a closer beach on the same side of the river, a quarter mile walk, but it doesn't have boat rentals or concessions in the summer.

My wife found this cabin early in the pandemic and we've stayed here multiple times since then. We love reading on the deck, in and out of the hot tub. The house has everything we need for a comfortable and relaxing stay- even puzzles! It was so great to have a place to retreat to when being around other people felt unsafe. I hope we can keep coming back for years to come.

Lovely home! We enjoyed watching kayakers and ducks float by on the river. Kitchen was well stocked. Extra towels for hot tub were provided. There was an adjacent part of the house next to hot tub that did not seem to be occupied, although for awhile we weren’t sure if there was anyone living there or not-via Airbnb

Manager's Response

Hello Ann, We're so glad you enjoyed your stay! Thanks for being fantastic guests. We hope you stay with us again soon! The room next to the hot tub is actually a storage and supply room for the cleaners. No one else is on the property - guests do have the whole house to themselves. Feel free to reach out with any questions!

A great and relaxing rental!

Well appointed home, great location, clean, beautiful hot tub, sharp knives, comfortable beds. The TVs are located pretty high (like, on top of tall shelves), which made it a little hard to watch. But we mostly watched the view anyway. A great and relaxing rental!-via Airbnb

Overall a great stay. Incredible location and view. The deck and jacuzzi are awesome. Things you should keep in mind: -The two bedrooms are pretty small. -The TV setup is very out of date. -No river access from the property. -No stock of cooking essentials: no salt, oil, etc.-via Airbnb

We had a delightful, relaxing stay here (which is no mean feat when you have a 9-month old). The kitchen is very well-appointed and had everything we needed. The bed was comfortable. And you can walk anywhere in town and it's close to several places to eat or enjoy the sunset from a bar window. Thumbs up for the hot tub, although if there are more than two guests, it would be a tight squeeze. - via AirBnB

We've come to this house several times during the pandemic and it really does feel like a home away from home. The kitchen has everything you need to cook and it's close to great restaurants and shops now that things are opening up. So many great hikes nearby. Highly recommend wild flour bakery!

Great river front location with an amazing deck and hot tub. We spent all of our evenings eating dinner, enjoying the scenery, and relaxing in the hot tub, The kitchen is well stocked with all the essentials and the bedrooms and living areas were comfortable and cozy.

We absolutely love this place. It has everything you need for a relaxing vacation, and really does have the perfect view (We've stayed in several places on the river and this one is the best!) The rental company is really helpful and great to work with. The little store down the street has everything you need if you don't feel like trekking into Guerneville. Can't wait to come back again.

We love this place so much! Have stayed there 2 separate weeks this year and both were great escapes. The view is the best in the area and I could spend all day lounging on the giant deck enjoying it. The kitchen is super well stocked with everything you need for cooking and there's a great store down the road if you forget any essentials. This last trip there was a giant spider on the wall by the bed one night but we didn't have any other issues! I just read that the county has purchased some of the nearby forest/creek land to create a new park, can't wait to come back and check that out.

This place is awesome! My wife and I booked The Perfect View for a week during the “offseason” and absolutely loved it. The house was clean, comfortable and had great amenities. We loved grilling, hot tubbing and relaxing on the deck while overlooking the river and mountains. The weather was great during the day and cooled off at night, but the heating system in the house warmed us right up. The location is great as well. Easy access to the coast and all the great wineries in the area. We hiked at Salt Point State Park one day, went wine tasting the next and rented a kayak the following. We definitely plan to come back again.

Really loved our stay here. The views really are incredible- we didn't end up leaving the house much, mainly lounged on the well-shaded deck and read and enjoyed the views. The kitchen was really well stocked for cooking and the house had everything we needed to make our stay really comfortable. We'll definitely be back.Just a few things to note- the wifi was spotty- not really what we came for but something to know if you're planning to work from here etc. The rental co said there had been issues with it in the area recently. There are also many dogs around here, and when one of them starts barking, the rest bark too! It was really just during the day though, nights were very quiet. There was also noise from the beach across the river on the weekend- people are not shy about blasting music. Glad we were up for a whole week- the weekdays were super quiet and peaceful.

The house was perfect for our stay!
