Description

Pocket Paradise is a beautiful custom-built home in the heart of Sonoma County Wine County. Located on 3 forested and lovingly landscaped acres between the towns of Forestville and Guerneville, this is truly a retreat for the whole family. A pocket of sunshine surrounded by redwood groves, you'll lounge around the pool and in the hot tub, BBQ on the back deck, explore and picnic in the gardens and love life outdoors in temperate Northern California!

With ample room for 8 guests to cook and hang out in the generous kitchen with stainless steel appliances and Viking oven and gas range, you can cook to your heart's delight or visit highly rated local restaurants with equal aplomb. Play pool in the loft, Scrabble in the living room or check out the big screen TV when you've had your fill of the outdoors. Enjoying quality time with friends and family couldn't be easier!

wonderful retreat

Reviewed on 2022-07-17 by Kevin

Pocket Paradise was a wonderful retreat for a small group of friends looking to escape the city for a few days, enjoy the warm weather, and spend some time relaxing. The house was immaculate, the photos don't really do the yard justice - it's beautiful and spacious. The pool and hot tub were clean, maintained at the perfect temperature (solar heating!), private, and offered both sun shade. The kitchen, grill, and deck were well-appointed. Overall the house was even better than expected and so close to so many things in the area while feeling 'remote' when at home.-via Airbnb

Manager's Response

Hello Kevin, We are elated you enjoyed Pocket Paradise! We would love to have you all back anytime! Thank you for being superb guests.

Really loved the place and we’d definitely come back. It was a perfect combination of forest and gorgeous landscaped grounds. Added bonus was the beautiful blue-tailed skilton skink we saw the first day on the rock wall. That said, we would have appreciated an outdoor dining table that was in a little better shape and dish towels. Also, not sure the ice machine in the freezer was completely working.-via Airbnb

Manager's Response

Hello Marcie, Thank you for your feedback, we always try to take care of any concerns that come up during a guests stay if possible but we will have someone look into the condition of the table outside, dish towels and ice machine since you have noted it here. We do hope you enjoyed your stay!

I'll start with the issues. The number one thing was that they need to use Fragrance free detergent for all bedding. The building smelled very strongly to me - it smelled like bleach to a point that was uncomfortable. They had a washer dryer so we wash the sheets ourselves with some vinegar and that helped remove some of the smell for the second night. Directions for how to find the place were missing the all important final step which was not obvious to us at all on the moonless night that we arrive. Are the houses behind another house on the right of the Long narrow road. All outlets at countertop didn't work. Clicking reset on the GFCI did not help.Kitchen missing some key simple items including: Oven mits and Dish towels.Remote for hot tub didn't work - The host showed up and changed the batteries. Idea: it would be nice to ask if guests want it hot when they arrive. Pillows low quality but bedding okOn the plus side: overall it was a big nice house that was very practical for our groupGreat couchPool setting was the most beautiful part of the houseDining booth was goodPots and pans were good as was cusinart

Pocket Paradise was the perfect home to celebrate my birthday. The home is beautiful. The gardens are spectacular. We loved the pool and hot tub. We intend to return soon. This property has so much to offer. The location is beautiful and peaceful. The pool, hot tub and pool table provided entertainment for all. We didn't need or want to leave the home during our stay. We were able to cook gourmet meals and enjoy are food with a view of the amazing gardens. I highly recommend this exceptional home.

This place was just perfect. Great house with a nice open kitchen/living/dining area, amazing pool and hot tub, and beautiful property with a fantastic, fenced-in yard for the dogs. Great location too with all the nearby wineries and Russian River amenities. We would absolutely rent this property again- can't wait!

I really didn't want to leave and felt so comfortable. From the beginning, the managing company was extremely responsive and very professional. The home is perfectly nestled among tall trees and despite being close to other homes, feels very private. The grounds are so well kept and the place was spotless when we arrived. In addition to sleeping, swimming, and lounging, there are lots of things to do, including stand up paddle-boarding, going for a hike, and eating at the delicious Italian restaurant. I can't wait to go back!

Spent a week with the family at this amazing property. The house was perfect, but the backyard with the pool and the garden was just amazing! We spent quiet days reading by the pool, eating the plums that dropped off the trees, and the hot tub at night was so relaxing. It was such a great week with family playing pool and watching movies. Pocket Paradise was hard to leave. We are already discussing our return. Thanks RR Vacation Homes!

This property was beautiful and extremely comfortable! It was very well put together with everything you need/want in a vacation rental. The chefs kitchen was wonderful. I cooked every meal and never had a shortage of utensils, pots, pans or dishes. They have made it very welcoming and homey. The Pool table in the loft was definitely a bonus. The pool/spa and pool house were great as well. You can take lunch and/or snacks down into the pool house and enjoy table side, inside as well as outside. The outside ground are beautiful and peaceful. This house is also situated outside of a normal neighborhood. And although you have a few neighbors, they are all spread out making the house and grounds quiet and private.The directions for everything in this house were extremely easy and readily available. You didn't have to search around for answers.We will definitely be back during the summer with more people to enjoy this home's full potential.

We loved this beautiful home. The garden is so pretty and the house is spacious. The pool was amazing. We spent most of our time swimming in it or playing pool in the loft. The only drawback was that we were unable to stream movies from the internet. If you are staying for a week, be sure to bring some toilet paper and some dish soap.Manager Response:Hello and thanks for the nice notes! The wifi at Pocket Paradise is through Dish Network, so it's great for checking email and social media updates, but not for streaming or other heavy use. The TVs have tons of stations through Dish Network though. An initial supply of toilet paper, paper towels and other items are provided (listed in the guest agreement and website), but if you have questions - please ask! We're happy to help you figure out what to pack or shop for once you get here - we do have a Safeway and other shops.~ Megan
