Description

Sunshine Grove preserves the vintage charm of its 1920's roots, blended with modern amenities such as a freshly remodeled kitchen with stainless steel appliances, new touches in the bathrooms, and cozy comforts throughout. Beautifully refinished wood floors, an open beam ceiling in the living room and multi-paned windows add to the charm. French doors open to a private dining patio with gas BBQ and deck with a hot tub. Just off the living room, the master suite includes a full bathroom with shower and tub and double vanity. In the hallway that leads to the 2nd full bathroom and laundry, there are custom-built stairs to the 2nd bedroom. French doors at the hallway give the lofted bedroom full privacy.

You'll love cooking - inside or out - at Sunshine Grove and basking in your private retreat! Pack a picnic and walk to the Guernewood Park neighborhood beach on the Russian River or explore acclaimed wineries just minutes away. When you return, relax in the hot tub, fire up the BBQ, or check out fabulous restaurants in West Sonoma County. Families with kids and dogs will appreciate the fully fenced yard and proximity to playgrounds, activities and hiking trails.

Know Before You Book:

Maximum Occupancy and Quiet Hours:
The maximum occupancy at Sunshine Grove is 6 people. Quiet hours are from 10:00 pm until 7:00 am. Outdoor amplified sound is prohibited at any time.

Parking:
There is parking for 2 to 3 cars in the driveway in front of the house. The garage is not available for parking. Street parking is scarce. RVs, trailers and campers are prohibited, per the Sonoma County Vacation Rental Ordinance.

Heat Source:

A/C: The house does not have air conditioning. Being near the coast, the night time temps drop and just opening some windows is usually enough to cool the house.

Stairs: There are two sets of stairs at the house: one with several landings from the parking area to the front door and one interior set of stairs to the 2nd bedroom. These stairs are nearly ladder-like, very sturdy and have non-slip material on them for your safety. We've included photos and hope you will contact us with any questions or concerns about the stairs.

Fencing: The yard is fully fenced.

Proximity to Wineries: Several tasting rooms in downtown Guerneville are approx. 1.5 miles walk or drive.

Nearest River Beach: The nearest river access is a 1 mile walk or drive.

The space is clean and the modern styling is very fun

Reviewed on 2022-09-10 by Jennifer

We had a nice stay in this home. The space is clean and the modern styling is very fun. Beds and sofa were comfortable. We did puzzles on the large dining room table. The exterior space is more of a large deck/patio than a yard, but it is fully fenced, which is wonderful. Loved the hammock! The neighborhood was quiet and we felt pretty secluded from the neighbors, though they are close in proximity. For sure the upstairs is for the fleet of foot only--I knew not to let our dog climb up there because we'd have had difficulty getting her back down (there is a door so that you can close off access, if necessary.) When we were there it was HOT out, so we appreciated the fans. Great location--so close to the town.-via Airbnb

Hello Jennifer, Thank you for being amazing guests! Especially during that heatwave! We are elated you enjoyed the home and outdoor spaces it provides. We would host you again anytime :)

Cute and comfortable cabin in the woods. The community was quiet and welcoming. The house had a lovely gas fireplace, hot-tub and comfortable beds. It was clean and well appointed. We did not use the upstairs which had steep steps as others have mentioned. But the rest of the cabin was very nice.-via VRBO

We had an excellent stay. The place was quiet and clean. It wasn't like staying in a hotel where there isn't much privacy. We definitely want to stay at the same place again next time. There was only one very small issue while we were there. We started cooking on the grill and the gas ran out. There was a second tank there but the blue tag showed it was new but it was empty because the valve was turn open. We just went and got another tank ourselves at the gas station near Safeway because we had already started cooking. This really wasn't a big deal as we all had a good time and hope we are allowed back again. Thank you, Ellen.-via VRBO

Hello Frank, We are elated you enjoyed your stay! We are however sorry to hear about the empty propane tank! We have more in the office and could have exchanged the empty for you, at no cost! Thank you for being a wonderful guest :)

Cute cottage, worked out great for 3-4 people and we felt right at home. Very well-stocked kitchen: we cooked all meals the 4 days we stayed there. Having the private little yard with outdoor eating space + hot tub was lovely. Sofa bed isn't the most comfy if you end up using it - just needs some additional padding. Super convenient location for exploring the river and then going out to Jenner! We hope to be back.

Great property that is perfect for bouncing to the coast, wineries or staying local and enjoying the river and redwoods. Very quiet and peaceful. Hot tub and hammock were a perfect touch and we loved taking morning walks to the coffee shop / bakery about a half mile away. Appreciated that the hosts had condiments, coffee filters, extra towels for the hot tub and lots of cozy blankets for hanging out by the fire. Neighbors are close and were up a bit early but wasn’t too big of a deal. Stairs going to the upstairs room are indeed rather steep per the listing info so just be aware. Overall though it was the perfect spot for us (a couple but could also be great for two couples) and we would highly recommend.-via Airbnb

The space is absolutely lovely and the host is very sweet. The space had everything we needed—comfortable living and sleeping quarters with nicely renovated bathrooms and a kitchen with many tools/utensils. We loved cooking our meals in the kitchen and serving it in the outdoor area under the trees. Lastly, it even has a hot tub which was a perfect way to relax into the evenings. We also played some of the complimentary games like Scrabble on the comfy sofa in front of the gas fireplace. We relaxed at the space most of the time, but also took a short drive to hike among the redwoods. The host let us know that reception can be spotty, so we made sure to write down the access codes and wifi prior to arrival which helped a lot. All in all, I highly recommend this spot. It’s definitely on our list to stay here again! - via AirBnB

Sunshine Grove was amazing for our family of four. It had everything we could ask for. It is tastefully decorated -- simple, clean, and uncluttered. The hot tub was perfect, and even serviced while we were there (ready to use 45 minutes later). The neighbors were quiet, the home is super close to the town, and the mattresses were comfy. It was such a wonderful place and we would definitely come back.

Sunshine Grove was very cute and comfortable, and we felt at home right away. It had everything we needed, including everything needed to cook meals in the kitchen, toiletries, and cozy bedding. There were plenty of beach towels, which was perfect for the hot tub - probably my favorite part. The string lights are a lovely added touch, and we felt secluded while still being close to everything. We did various 1-2 hour road trips each day to get the full Russian River / Sonoma County experience, but there are also spots closer to the house. Our hot water heater went out one of the days, but the River Homes team was quick to reply via phone and Airbnb messaging and had the issue resolved by the time we returned to the house that evening. Would definitely stay in a River Homes home in the future the next time we're in the area! Made my first trip to this region really wonderful.

My roommates and I were looking for a quiet, peaceful spot to get out of the city and spend some time amongst trees. This cozy home in Guerneville, close to town and a short drive from the coast, was perfect. This place is in a more residential area but it always felt private and was very quiet the whole time we were there. We loved sitting on the patio in the morning and having a coffee and of course relaxing in the hot tub at night. We found some great hikes not too far away and got to have a “best of both worlds” experience by being close enough to the forest trails to spend lots of time there during the day, but also being able to come back to a place with a full kitchen and a tv after :) We'd definitely return!

We enjoyed our stay at the Sunshine Grove! The check-in was easy and the house has everything you need. The place is very clean and the kitchen is well furbished. We enjoyed sitting in front of the fireplace as it got chilly in the evenings. The beds were very comfortable and the location was quiet with a short drive to Guerneville restaurants and shops. The place works well for two couples as the bedrooms are at different ends and thus, have their own privacy.via AirBnB

What a great find! This place was just perfect for a weekend trip in wine country for me and two of my girlfriends. It felt very private, secure and quiet with tons of stylish touches like mid-century modern furniture, a modern kitchen, outdoor lightbulbs strung across the patio and a chic gravel driveway. We loved the hot tub, BBQ and outdoor seating and were able to cook at home one night which was great fun. The neighborhood has a calm and peaceful vibe, with stunning redwood trees all around. Just magical! Thank you, River Homes.

Beautiful house and area to stay in! Contrary to air bnb's notes it is dog friendly too and at no extra charge which was amazing. Comfortably housed 2 couples and was relatively close to everything. The road is tight getting back to it but you get used to it. The town itself was super packed for such a small area so be prepared for traffic! The house itself though was quiet and peaceful, great place and the managers were lovely to work with

I've been up to the Sunshine Grove spot a few times this spring and just can't get enough. As soon as you walk through the front gate you feel more chill. It's the perfect spot to relax all afternoon with friends post hike by the ocean, bike ride or swim in the river. We have a dog and he loves exploring around the front yard. Great spot, couldn't recommend it more!

This is our go to spot when visiting Guerneville! It's comfortable, cozy, warm, well-appointed and the patio is drowning in sunshine which is rare for this area. For city dwellers its the perfect spot for quiet and calm amongst the redwoods. The location is perfect, far enough outside of town to be away from it all yet close enough to head in for a drink at El Barrio or food at Boon.The kitchen is well designed and has everything you need. The showers are hot and strong. The beds are really comfortable. The house is beautifully decorated with original art and big windows and doors that bring the outside in. The hot tub is brand new and perfect for relaxing at the end of the day.On top of all that we could bring our dog who just loved lazing about in the sun on the deck. The yard is perfectly secure for your pups.Sunshine Grove is amazing value, I can't recommend it highly enough.
