Property Details

New Downstairs Studio Apartment available as an add on!

Located within a mile of downtown Guerneville and an easy walk from the Russian River, Valley Vista is a secluded forest bungalow perfect for a family or couples get-away – or even a scenic work retreat. Towering redwoods surround this home, which has been fully renovated with contemporary furnishings and up-to-date amenities even as it retains the feel of a picturesque river cabin. The primary residence offers two bedrooms and two baths, while an optional apartment, available for a small additional fee, provides another bedroom alongside all the living spaces and conveniences of a fully equipped, self-contained ADU. Further expanding the possibilities, the gated front drive has room for a 26-foot RV with hook-ups for water, sewer, and electricity, also available for a small additional fee.
Valley Vista delivers an experience of the Russian River Valley’s enchanting landscape in a setting both luxurious and highly private. With the home set atop a wonderfully landscaped slope, the views extend for miles to the West across the rolling hills. The backyard cascades down the hillside over three distinct levels, each with generous seating areas and a combination of sun and shade. On the main residence level is an expansive deck with a professional-grade gas grill, a teak dining set, an outdoor heater, and a full outdoor living area. Down one flight of stairs is a hot tub with room for six, as well as chaise lounges for relaxing after your soak. And one level below the hot tub is yet another patio offering the shelter of an expansive pergola, as well as a picnic table and a pair of hammocks. Whether hosting a family reunion or break-out sessions during a work retreat, this multi-tiered backyard invites a larger group to circulate as more intimate conversations and small-group activities emerge in the various seating areas. In the driveway, a 50-amp charger lets you power your EV. (Please bring your own EV cables.) 27 solar panels and Tesla battery back-ups let you continue the fun even in the event of a power outage. We welcome up to two well-behaved dogs under 50 pounds to enjoy this property with you.
The immediate area offers a panorama of activities for your enjoyment. In addition to the Russian River and downtown Guerneville within walking distance, Valley Vista is a short drive from the Pacific coast, scenic hiking trails, golf courses, and celebrated wineries where you can savor the Russian River Valley and all Sonoma County has to offer. After a day spent enjoying this fabulous region, the comforts of Valley Vista will welcome you back to total relaxation in your home away from home.

The place was exactly like the pictures. Easy to find, and in close proximity to everything we wanted to do. Was in a neighborhood, but did not feel like it, felt very remote when inside.

Had a great stay! We loved the fireplace and rustic feel of the cabin while having all the comforts and amenities we needed!

This was hands down our favorite stay and one of the most well stocked and thoughtful items throughout the home. They even had a pack and play for our daughter and the doggies loved the back yard. I highly recommend and we will definitely be back! Thank you so much for the amazing experience.

This place was better than advertised! The backyard was amazing and relaxing in the family/TV room was equally as incredible.

Hosts were great communicators and we loved the proximity to downtown. If you are on the fence, commit!

Cozy home with fantastic outdoor space. The rooms were comfortable and the house was well stocked with essentials - especially THE KITCHEN. This kitchen was the most well stocked I have ever seen in a rental property, full of nice kitchenware and all of the appliances you could want. The outdoor space has three levels of deck - one for dining, one for hot tubbing, and one for picking plums off the trees and lounging. Gorgeous views. Super close to town. Because we brought two babies, the only wish we had was that there were baby/kid stuff stocked, but certainly understand that's not what all airbnb's are marketing for. We made it work! Loved our stay.

The first house we booked, the one on this listing, looked amazing… until it was cancelled at 7pm the night before saying there was “construction and it was unsafe” after we’d had it booked for over a month. We were offered another one or their “comparable” properties so we took it as it was our holiday break. We got to the new house on the river in Healdsburg and found a sparsely furnished (most of those furnishings broken or old), mold by the shower, a chipped glass shower door, and a disgusting hot tub (which was really a small tub for 1-2), and windows with no shades so neighbors could see into the house, including the bedroom, at all times. The house was beyond disgusting/disappointing to the point that we left the next morning and moved to a new Airbnb. We asked to be reimbursed for the other 2 nights and they fought us on the fees and ended up charging us almost $1000 for an absolute disaster of a house. I have been a renter and host on Airbnb for over a decade with 5 star reviews, and would NEVER EVER rent from them again. Buyer beware on all their rentals.

We had a wonderful time here and look forward to coming back next year! The beds are super comfy, the house is well stocked and the yard in incredible - fully fenced in with stunning views of the redwoods. We will definitely make this our annual stop. Thank you again for an amazing stay.

You are on a private hill, over looking a tree topped canopy in privacy. Great front yard as well as back yard space.
The hot tub was underneath the trees, and the stars. Right minutes from downtown, and from the river and 25 minutes to the ocean. We loved Goat Rock beach!

Very nice home in a lovely setting. The location amongst magnificent redwood trees cannot be beat. It’s not even 5 min into town but you’ll feel so relaxed. I would book again for sure. WC Lodging is very responsive and helpful.
